I'm trying out Emby as a replacement for iTunes for music. I'm using the AppleTV app. I've had a playback bug that I noted here, which I don't know if it's a server or aTV issue:

https://emby.media/c...alfway-through/

 

Additionally, there seem to be basic missing features from Emby for music playback. Are these known gaps or is there something wrong with my setup?

 

  • No display of time elapsed or time remaining. There's what might be a scrub bar below the album art, but it's just a hollow bar, no time information.
  • The AppleTV jump forward / backward 10 second controls don't work in Emby music
  • I couldn't find any way at all to forward reverse within a song
  • There's no way to skip a track, except for pulling down or menuing to get the album list (in a playlist) and then navigate to the next song and then select it.
  • The "..." menu feature does nothing. I expected it to have additinal features, like playlist controls, or rating song or something. But it did nothing.

 

I admit I was confused by the Emby music playback UI on the AppleTV. I had trouble grasping what was where in terms of swipe down, swipe up, menu button.

 

 

iTunes in AppleTV is pretty lousy, so Emby is an improvement, if I can eliminate the random song restart bug. These UI issues are odd, but not killer compared to iTunes deficiencies.

Hi @ShoutingMan --

 

The UI for the Emby playback on the Apple TV is the tvOS provided music UI so I'm surprised to see these issues. What is the media info for the music you were attempting to play?

The are aac or mp3 audio files, the usual sort in my iTunes library.

I found I could forward and reverse. But the AppleTV 10 sec jump didn’t work. Maybe it’s a music thing in the AppleTV. I’m not thrilled what the AppleTV music player, and if Emby is using that, then it’s getting its weaknesses, nothing to be done about that.
