Just be honest with your users and let us know where we stand on having this basic feature added.. this should of been implemented from the start ūü§¶‚Äć‚ôāÔłŹ

I also dont understand that... I asked for this around 10 times and always getting the same answer "hopefully soon"...

On LG TV's you can fast foreward for a long time now and on Samsung nothing works...

But on LG you can only do this using the pointer on a Magic remote, which Samsung doesn't support.  If you were restricted to the same navigation methods as Samsung, you would have the same issue on LG.

It is definitely a feature that is needed, and as Luke has claimed it is coming, but it isn't a minor change if it is done properly.

If it's that hard why not give us at least the chapter skip part back until the timeline slider which uses the bifs/thumbs can be implemented?  The code is already written

We already had chapter skip in this app about 3 years ago until it was taken away and replaced with a skip to next video option (not that I use that very often when watching movies). 

Just assign chapter skip to which ever key you plan on using for the rest (I assume the up arrow like ATV and the other apps use since both down and up arrow do the same thing) temporarily  until you get the bif thing working

Is the bif the reason this is being so delayed ?

If yes, then as you say just release it without !

It's frankly embarrassing that a 'media player' doesn't have chapter ff/rw in 2021 - mind you, the web player doesn't either but at least it has the ability to quickly scroll.

The TV clients (well LG & Samsung..) have not had updates for what seems like years - so 'anything' at the moment would be most welcome ..

edit - lol, infact the DLNA functionality on the Samsung TV surpasses the native client - on that you have 3 speed ff/rwd, subtitle size etc.  So your choice is eye candy from emby or functionality of DLNA - seems you can't have both ...

Version 1.0.28 was the last version I recall which had chapter skipping.  After that the >| and |< buttons on both the remote and the OSD were remapped to skip to next/previous video. But nothing was ever added back in to replace those other functions

Heck you could just make up two new icons and add them to the OSD which do chapter back and forward and then add the code back in that was there before before.  

This would be a nice start until something better can be done.  It's a lot better than clicking 30 seconds forward a thousand times
