[FR] Add a chapter skip / visual seeking slider with images

Recommended Posts

FrostByte

Request: Add a visual seeking method with progress bar using thumbnails from chapter markers or the 10 second thumbnail generator (as defined by the users server options) for skipping.

 

Now that the >> << are remapped to next and previous items in a list there is no way to conveniently skip chapters during playback.  Exiting and going back to the details page to select the next chapter is inconvenient and so is clicking skip forward 50 times at 30 seconds a pop to get to where you want to be.

 

The ATV chapter skipping and visual seeking methods are good examples of a way to advance/reverse on the progress bar using thumbnails .  Click the UP key could bring up a slider where you can select chapter images and/or the newer bif images.  Then you can use the left and right arrow to scroll through the images

 

Currently the UP and DOWN keys are both mapped to bring up the OSD, so the UP should be free for other things like a chapter skipping slider

Hello everybody, I want to know if it´s possible implement this feature

https://imgur.com/a/cFSp1YF

To be able to select de progress bar and move the progress keeping holding the control button pressed. I dont need to see the miniature like the image, just being able to move fast via the progress bar would be enough. 

Yesterday I instead of pressing resume from, i selected play from the beginning, so in order to get to where I leave, I had to keep pressing the button each time to advance 10 sec. 

 

I think this feature is useful and won't get in the way with others if they dont want to use it. 

 

I own a RU7100 Smart 4K UHD TV (2019)

and i have the latest version of the app installed.

Hey @@Luke can you update us about this feature request? Sometimes i fall in sleep while watching a movie, and next day i want to go back to where i stoped watching, but with this current way it is so slow it's pain to navigate that way.. also sometimes i want to check movie if subtitles are good till the end of movie for my mother to watch, and i can't.. Current way is good if you want to go back few minutes back if you didn't understand something, or you missed something..

The Samsung client as of yet has no visual seeking or chapter selection option like some of the other clients

I have installed emby app v. 1.0.77 on my Samsung TV and emby server v. 4.4.2.

The OSD menu shows only the following buttons: play/pause, -10sec, + 10sec.

There is no rewind and no fast forward.

I cannot navigate into chapters and can't skip with remote control back and forward.

I have the same problem with the webapp and Emby theater for Windows.

How can I fix it?

Yes Please!!!!

 

My daughter is having to use Emby on a Samsung afrer being used to a Shield!

 

She is going NUTS that she cannot Press UP to bring the chapters up and skip by chapter.

 

Please Implement to save my ears!

The LG app allows chapter skipping with channel up/down.

i would like to +1 this feature as well.  

just this weekend finished watching a movie with the kids, they wanted to back up an hour to the funny part, and I couldn't use the Samsung remote to get there any time soon.

 

I ended up having to switch to the Apple TV and Apple TV remote (which I normally hate). to be able to do it.

If possible, it would be great to have a jump to time index button as part of the OSD. For recorded TV where there aren't any chapters, this would be a lot of help (especially for sports).

 

A simple dialog box where you can enter hour, minute and seconds and jump between each with left/right, that would make things easy to use.

I want the fast forward/rewind too for my Samsung TV. Perhaps we can have a function, that we can do it direct on the slider/progressbar?

Greetings, 

I've just tried plex and emby servers with my collection, with Samsung K-series Smart TV.

Emby is faster and suits me better, but the only thing I can't figure out is how to fast forward videos? I cant imagine that so advanced software is missing this essential feature :blink:. Is it only available in Premiere version or I miss the way how to do it?

Best regards.

No, it's not even there for Premiere users.  There is already a request to add something like what the ATV app has with Chapter skipping, and a FF/REW button with visual seeking.

 

You can hold down the right arrow button on the remote, but all that does is a bunch of 30 seconds skips consecutively.

Great. Is there any ETA for this feature?

I mean, is it a few weeks away or it's definetly several months / years to be released and not worth waiting?
