BUG: Video position control does not work

Go to solution Solved by blue-wizard,

I have an Emby Theater client running on Windows 10.

I am using the Emby client for Android as a remote control.


Video playback works, but the video position control on the Android app is broken:

  • Videos begin at a position of 0:00 (so far, so good)
  • Video length is incorrectly reported as --:--
  • The video position does not change as the video is playing
  • When I try to change the video position using the slider, the video starts over






I am running Emby server version 

Here is a server log file generated during playback where I used the control. (I'm not sure how helpful this is?).

No. If I play media from the server on my Android, then the video location control works.


For completeness' sake, I also tried using the Android app as a control for the Emby Chrome app, and it has the same issue as with Emby Theater. This time it was streaming, but it was streaming in original quality so ffmpeg wasn't being used.
