Implement seeking content in the Mediabrowser

Add the ability to seek content when using the mediabrowser, that would be a good thing.
If course if transcoding is in effect it is not simple to implement (but with serviio-go it does work already), but for me it would be ok if it worked only when transcoding is off.
TIA.

Re: Implement seeking content in the Mediabrowser

Are you referring to a search function? That exists. Once you move into the category (video, music, pictures) there's a search button in the upper right corner. If you mean something different, I believe you need to be more specific about what you mean.

Re: Implement seeking content in the Mediabrowser

Sorry, I should have been more specific:
My request is about to be able to seek while playing back a movie when using the MediaBrowser.
Currently, when you playback a movie, dragging the slider which represents the position of the playback of the file has no effect. It will, after a little wait time jump just back to the current time.
However, when using the Serviio mobile player for android seeking works - even if the content is not fully rendered and transcoding is in effect.
For me that means, the server itself i able to seek, the problem is on the client side.

It would be much nicer if I could do seeking
I do not use serviio with TVs, only android client and on windows Desktop, therefore I dont know how it behaves on other platforms.

Re: Implement seeking content in the Mediabrowser

I just tried MediaBrowser on my Windows 11 laptop using Chrome as the browser. When you move the cursor over the playback window a time bar appears along the bottom of the window. I tried dragging the position indicator further along and while it took a few seconds to buffer it continued playing from the new position. It doesn't have any buttons to FF/rewind playback, and that would likely require using a different media player. I doubt that is an expense the Serviio developer can handle.

Re: Implement seeking content in the Mediabrowser

It seems you tried a file encapsulated in a different container or codec then I use.
Ok, when I try a .mp4 file, I am able to seek. However an mkv containter with h264 or 265 seeking does not work (it still works when I use the android serviioGo app).

Re: Implement seeking content in the Mediabrowser

OK, I tried it with some MKV files with MPEG-2, H.264 and H.265 video. The MEPG-2 files I could FF fine, but I had the same issue you did with the H.264/265 content. When I tried H.264 in the M2TS container, the play bar wasn't even visible. Hopefully Zip will see this thread and investigate. I know he switched to this video player a number of years ago to improve playback over the previous player. But it seems you have identified an issue with it.

Re: Implement seeking content in the Mediabrowser

Over a year ago? Nah, I can't remember stuff that long... :lol:

Anyway, hopefully Zip sees this and looks into it.
