Attached log Luke and screen shot inside WMC. I have manually gone into library and checkked two episodes as played. Just watched the third episode and it does not show played. IE: highlighted blue like the others.

 

So, in this situation right here, no matter how many times you go in and out of EMC that third episode does not show as played?

 

But, if you bring up the same episode in the web app, it does?

 

Same user in both apps, right...?

@ebr I think some clarification is needed. I think what he means to say is that when playback happens in EMC, it doesn't get reflected anywhere. When it happens in the web app, it does get reflected everywhere.

Well, see, that's what I was originally thinking but he seems to be saying that the item that doesn't show as played in EMC does in the web app and that's what has me confuddled :).

That is correct Luke. If I play in Web app or Android, it is working correctly. In EMC it does not.

Can you please play something to completion in EMC, let it return to the detail screen and sit for about 60 seconds and then post the EMC log?  Thanks.

Please provide the log when you can.  I just did the exact thing you did and everything worked as it should.

 

  • I went to a season with no watched episodes.
  • Hit ctl-w on the first two and they immediately were marked as watched (and I got the message top right)
  • Then I played the third episode to completion and, when it returned to the series screen, not only was the item marked watched but it also moved the cursor to the next item as it should (if you have automatically scroll to next unwatched selected)

Mine most certainly is not doing any of that ebr.

Okay, you left a key piece of information out of your report :).  You are using an external player.

 

If you turn that off, does everything work as it should?

 

Make sure you have the webserver enabled in MPC-HC.

Apologies for that. :)

 

I have added two screen captures to show what I think you mean. I have checked the box for listening on port.

 

I have removed MPC-HC and will report later what the findings are.

Internal player does not work. Probably codecs. The last episode has marked as played since I checked the listening port. I will see if it continues.

Thanks for your help Gents.

Yes, that option needs to be enabled for resume/watched functionality to work with MPC-HC.

Looked at it previously but it was still in beta Luke. You also need to purchase the CEC adapter if my memory serves me well.

Is it out of beta now?

Only if you want to use CEC, but since Emby for WMC has no CEC support, this is isn't really a basis of comparison between the two apps, right?

 

Yes it is out of beta. Thanks.

I understand that but if you want to use a remote it is required is it not?

No, you can use whatever remote you're currently using with Emby for WMC.
