Scene viewer and resume playback

Postby devanl » Tue May 05, 2009 3:16 am

So last night I had 5 minutes left to watch of a movie and accidentally hit the stop button. I couldn't find a way to pick up where I left off. I realize its transcoding on the fly but I thought maybe it was caching the entire file to tmp? So I could only fast forward at 1.5x and the scene selection viewer puked and booted me out of the movie.

Is there a way to make these things work? Perhaps if I had a faster processor (running dual 1.2 tualatins)?

Either that or can I get the settings for mencoder to transcode all of my movies before watching them? Would this let me seek through the file/scene selection?

Anyone else found a way around this?

Thanks,
Devan

Use the "Jump to..." in the PS3's playback menu.

"Jump to..." work great for the Divx films, thanks!

No luck with this on the 720p films that I have in mkv... is this normal or is my server showing its age? I suspect that the DiVx recording also don't require transcode on the fly so that may be some of the difference...

Thanks,
Devan

Works in 630! Maybe now I can be forgiven for accidently hitting stop :D

Thanks!

So I was watching a different video today with build 630 but when I "Go To..." 15 minutes in the player locks up and PMS console says
Code: Select all
[main] TRACE 14:13:33.577 It's ready! You should see the server appears on XMB
[Thread-58] TRACE 14:13:51.296 Starting transcode/remux of TIH 1080p.mkv

Ever seen this before?

Thanks,
