That's correct. My phone was tethered via wifi. If I set that connection as 'metered' in the windows 10 settings, would that help? (I just realised I should do that anyway, but I forgot with this new phone). Otherwise it would be great if there was an option to limit syncing to a local connection only.

 

I have a few android apps that use the SSID to restrict activity or use local IPs instead of dynamic dns to connect. I'd love this feature too. For me it is not even the mobile connection, just Australian internet in general and uploads counting on my home plan.

 

While I am here, I'm setting up a windows laptop and considering making the switch from android, where do I find the sync options in Emby Theatre - it doesn't seem to show up for my device? If I select sync I get "It looks like you don't currently have any apps that support offline downloading."

You just click the download buttons all throughout the app.

@switmore, I tested this and it "sort of" worked fine.

If you stop an offline video halfway through, the playstate gets correctly synced to the server on the next background sync. So that is good.

The part that is currently missing is that the playstate does not get saved into the offline database, which means if you return offline a second time then you don't get to see the resume progress bar. Also now that I think of it, if you resume on the server, then the playstate should also get resynced down from the server on the next background sync. So that will be another thing to look at.

Does that answer your question for now?


Hi @Luke Did this ever make it to release?

Yes it did.

 

Hey mate. I tested this out. It seems like playstates are only synced when already connected to the server. When watching a video offline, when I next connected, the playstate was not synced.

It will sync the next time the server goes through it's sync process, not necessarily as soon as you connect.
