Hi there,

When watching Amazon Prime with the OnlineVideos-Plugin, my system goes to standby after 20 minutes or so. I suspect it has to do with the fact that PrimeVideo is not rendered with the internal Player, but opens a Browser to render the video.

So after some research I tried to enter the Process "OnlineVideos.WebAutomation.BrowserHost" into PowerScheduler to prevent Standby. (Which was a pain to find the name of, since OnlineVideos won't let even the taskmanager get focus while playing a video, and the process is not running when it's not displaying a video :().
But this does not seem to work, the system still goes to standby. Is there any other Process that is started, when Amazon Prime is playing that I could try ?

I typed in the Process name manually, since the Process-Selector of PowerScheduler is not accessible while playing a video, and the process is not listed, when it's not running. Could this be the issue?

    You could try iexplore.exe, that's the one strarted by the browserhost to actually play the video.
    After some thinking I think this is not correct

    That seems to do the trick. I played two episodes the past two days and both played to the end.

    Thank You for the tip (y)

    That’s what Lehmden said. Watched flags get migrated when updating to 2.2. Also a new plugin is almost finished to backup watched flags and restore later.
