Just another observation, I looked at 20 movies, 10 had the fast-forward issue 10 did not. The 10 that worked, were according to the server "direct Play", the 10 that failed where "transcoding"

 

Not sure if that helps

No need. If you delete the folder, and restart ET, it will self-update.

The ones that have the issue, do they have subs?

Can you post the transcode logs?

I completely uninstalled ET and checked to make sure all ET folders were deleted. Re-installed ET.

 

All movies are working now.  What's odd (But good) is all the movies that were "transcoding" are now "direct play".  So, I can't say if there is still an issue with movies that transcode.

I think the LAV filters probably got tweaked a little. I'm glad you got it working

I have this problem with ripped bluray movies, i cant skip forward using the slider or the forward buttons, it just goes back to the start. I removed ET and deleted the one ET folder, reinstalled ET, its still not working. I tried the 3 different video renderers and it still does not work.

Check to see if the playback is "transcoding" or direct play

Can you post a screenshot of the file details?

What did you rip the disc with?

Start playback..  On the computer that runs the server, bring up the server dashboard.. You will see you movie selected and below the screenshot is the playback type.

In the web app, go to the details page of the movie, scroll down and you'll see the file details. Can you post a shot of that?

here is the pic you asked for doofus

 

The server dashboard shows the movie is trans-coding. What can be done here?

OK, there are multiple subs on that file. You should post the transcode log, and probably the server log for that time frame. I don't know if you like to try things, but the first thing I would try would be a quick remux with mkvtoolnix. Sometimes there is an error with container/splitting. If that didn't work, remux again and remove the subs. I'm assuming you can play it OK in other players? I think we need to nail this down, so maybe Luke and/or Babgvant can improve resilience. Let's get as much information as we can. If you dont want to experiment, maybe you can slice off a junk and share it? Then I can test it.

Curious. It's h264. So it's folder rip. That may be the issue. We need to tag @ Luke in. I don't use folder rips. You'd be advised to remux to matroska. Luke, is there a known issue with folder rips?

No known issue but folder rips will transcode if the app does not have direct access to the folder.

here you go, where do i find the transcoding log?

 

I have a few bluray movies that are the same format and they behave the same way regarding skipping forward.

 

Im going to try a full 44gb rip later tonight. From what i can see i have full access to these movie folders. I was not playing bluray folder rips for a long time so this is a new problem for me. For another reason i have installed emby server again today but it has not improved this situation.
