    Hi all,

    Would a problem I am currently experiencing be the same bug/issue? As follows:-

    With 1.1.1 I could FF a TV recording reasonable ok, but now immediately after upgrading to 1.2.0 FF doesn't work at all.
    If I start playing a recording then going to 2x the video on screen freezes but the timer still shows as if it's time slipping. However, pressing PLAY and it does nothing, I don't get to the FF'd position. X4 and up is obviously the same.



    I have started a new thread but got to thinking this is all related.

    Ian.

    Does FFWD work in the Video player ?

    The DLL's did not help, no difference.

    FFWD works fine on videos.....I tried both SD (VOB) & HD (MKV), no problems.

    I tried, out of interest, copying one of the recorded TS files to my VIDEOS folder and played from there.....as expected FFWD not working from there either.

    So problem looks to be with .TS files.

    PS. I am using SEF 5.0.

    Yes, apologies apologies for that. Here we go:-

    There are two sets, 1st with using ARCSOFT TV video codec, and 2nd with MS one.
    The ARCSOFT one is better, at least the screen does update rather than freeze, however, at 2x the whole FFWD is slower than normal speed, I can see that with the time counter. Very slow & stoppy-starty.
    The MS one just gives one screenshot at the start then never updates, and when you hit PLAY the FFWD OSD does dissappear but the screen is stuck/frozen, and I have to press STOP to quit. The time counter does update all through the FFWD though, so it's not as if MP has crashed.

    Note:
    1. Both sets use the ARCSOFT codecs for video which FFWD flawlessly, very smooth.
    2. Both tests using the same pre-recorded TS to play (recorded when MS codec was in place).
    3. Using SAF 5.0

    It just looks like TS files are a problem.

    UPDATE:
    I was playing back an SD clip just now and notice that when I hit PLAY, for the first second or so the FFWD appears to be very smooth, I can see the fast video motion on screen, but then it just stops/stutters.

    This is my main MP/Tv machine, a standalone single seat. I'm not streaming.

    The reason for the question was because there seems to be a lot of RTSP (streaming protocol) related entries in the various logs - this doesn't feel normal for a single-seat system :confused:

    It's not ONLINEVIDEO or WEBBROWSER plugin you are seeing? I've played with quite a few plugins.
    Other than that, I have a few times streamed to my laptop, but only for testing.
