Hi,

 

need a clarification....

 

when I download a movie or TV series in iOS App :

 

1) is there a progress bar ?

2) can I play it when I am in a Flight Mode? (unfortunately I did not find the option)

 

Thanks

There is no progress bar currently for the downloading/sync process.

 

Yes, you can play it when you are in flight mode.

That would indeed be nice and not only on iOS but on all OS.

Would probably minimize the problem reports (less troubleshooting btw.) here as people now think Emby isn't doing anything although it is actually working.

It took me AGES to find this post and hence spot that there is a 'My Downloads' (duhh!!!) on the Select Server screen when no internet connection is available. This is OK now I know about it.

 

What I DO think needs to be fixed/changed though is that if you then click on the home icon you get taken to a screen which just sits there forever spinning, trying to connect to the server. There is no way to get back to 'My Downloads'.

 

I think if there is still no connection then it would be a good idea to simply go back to the initial 'select server' option so you can select 'My Downloads' again.

 

Currently if I accidentally click 'home' I need to kill the app and start again.

 

Not critical, but very kludgy!!

I have a slightly different problem. I downloaded a bunch of files off my server but when I try to play them on flight mode, it never happens. I get taken back to the server screen and of course I cannot connect to the server.

Any thoughts?

@dimitrik did you try clicking the "My Downloads" option on the server selection screen?

Indeed I did and then when I tap on a file in order to play it, I get a circle going around and then it takes me back to the Select Server screen.

Is that audio or video?

One h264 file and a couple of hevc files that the server transcoded to a lower bit rate. All in mkv containers.

Does this help?

I came back from my trip and now the downloads play just fine as long as I log in to the server.

Of course the whole point is to play the files when offline.

In my testing I'm able to play downloaded videos even with the server being unreachable. Are you running the latest version of Emby Server (4.1.1) ?

Ok, in my testing it seems to work just fine. I would suggest trying again with the next update to the app as there have been some changes in this area. thanks.

Ok will do some testing and report back once the new version is out. One thing to mention is that my server is not accessible outside my LAN. But I suppose that can't be a problem in this case since we are discussing offline playback...
