Looking for seek time

Postby wusucuma » Fri Mar 14, 2014 1:06 am

Hello

We want to play a video from the time we want to start so that user can play from where they watched.

So we're trying to look for 'seek time' function in the source code, but we can't.

and if we can find the function(if that function is included in PMS), can we transfer the video from that time to client?

or if that isn't in PMS, is there any possible we can make it?

Wait for your reply.

Thank you.

I'm more comfortable above the DLNA layer than below but AFAIK most renderers don't support time seek this way, that's why other approaches were to let the video start at a given time (where t=0 for the playstation might be t=30min for the video). This allows to bypass the limitation, but the displayed play time will be wrong (as the skipped time will be removed) and it won't be possible to seek to a time before the start time.
If you always wanted to have your most recent videos at the top of the folder in the ps3 or wished you could group all videos with the same genre in one folder, have a look at pms-mlx
