Amazon Prime already has this. Not sure how they're doing it, but I was re-watching some episodes of House on Prime and it gave me the option for every episode except the first of the season...

You can‘t compare it with prime or Netflix, because those guys know exactly where it starts and end. EMBY have to detect it by itself because every use have a different library. I think the thing Plex has done was really genius. Nothing else is this a nice to have feature but it don’t compensate all the things which made me switch over from plex to EMBY. (e.g. plex concentrated to much on third party stuff like tidal and web bullshit, in plex I  never can’t customise the look like on EMBY, plex support is unfriendly, plex is incredibly slow)

I wasn't comparing, I was just pointing out that Prima has this when a few days back rechigo said it didn't...

 

I agree with you on the rest though! I gave Plex a bit of a try in December, but really disliked it.

If its too complex I would love to just have a box for intro start and finish that I could manually add values. You could even make a wizard where you mark the start and end of the intro for the first episode (of the season or series) and then it would automatically pull up that section on the following episodes with a start and end marker that you could adjust (perhaps a timeline with two sliders?). I would assume most files would be close unless they have cold opens. I am not a coder and that maybe way more complex than its worth but just thinking out loud. That being said I feel like I could buzz through my shows pretty fast with something like that.

In addition skip intro I would also like to see:
- Skip recap
Which could be combined with the intro if they are back to back. Obviously this has to be edited by every admin manually.
- Skip outro

Some shows have an outro, which is followed up by some more content and at last there is a title scroll or logos till the end. I would like to be able to skip the outro, then watch the little ending before I jump to next episode.

I think it would be a good idea  to add it

But probably will be better if add the option to manually add The time of skip intro 

Example :. That i can add.  Times like this. 

Set TV show intro: ( for season or at least for tv show) 

Start: 1m 15s

End: 2m 5s 

I dont talk about to put it for all tv shows as no all tv shows start intro at same time ( some tv shows has a part of the episode before intro. Or come with ( previously on ..... Resume of last episode ... And with that it would be more time as normally take ). 

When we download episodes from internet we could check that some episodes bring with resume of last episode  not all episodes bring that. 

Another is. in some tv shows probably intro is about 1:10 or 1:20.minutes of   Duration.   But in others it takes untill 2 minutes  . Then we could calculated that watching first episode and taking the exactly time that intro took it 

Seasons: usually in every tv show the intro change when a new season arrive. .. different time to start and end. (Is not the same intro  on each season ) 

Thats my suggestion .... Thanks for read

Has anyone actually tried it or just going from their marketing announcement?

I use it, it works well. But it does need to detect it for each title (scheduled task) for it to appear.

It functions like Netflix as far as user experience

Hey guys!

I was thinking about this feature as well and I'm running a Plex Server with my Emby server. Plex recently introduced the skip intro feature and it's detecting intros as a pre-processed task which you can set like you would set a thumbnail extraction task. I love this feature so much and would even love it more on Emby. I'm too less of a tech-guy to say how they do it, but it has to analyse the episodes somehow and then put markers where the intro starts and stops.

Would love to see this on Emby as well, considering this thread is 3 years old already and has quite some good feedback

In the absence of publicly available data to this effect, somebody, somewhere is going to have to start with a contributor-network style plugin that scrapes data back from clients as they set the correct values in their servers, and with people bailing on Plex, nobody on earth is in a better position to do that than you are, luke.
