parity with plex when it comes to scrubbing thumbnails


Recommended Posts

Apologies if this has been posted before, i did search but nothing relevant came up. 


with plex, when scrubbing (using the bottom bar to jump around the video) you get a thumbnail and the thumbnail changes at every second

in Emby, when scrubbing you get a thumbnail that updates about once every five minutes because of automatic chapter thumbnails 


it's a small thing but it makes such a huge difference - finding a specific bit in a video in emby is quite a task, but quite easy in plex.


on a more technical side it looks like plex is sending requests for new thumbnails and then the server extracts them on demand - rather than storing a .jpg for every second as that would obviously be quite costly
