Youtube plugin - remembered position issues

Added by Troed Sangberg over 7 years ago

Hi,

[Love the plugin]

Various information having been collected from extensive usage of the Youtube plugin and automatic next item playing in playlists.

1) The plugin remembers the last timestamp played to - per video (edit: per Showtime settings)
2) "Seeking" to a remembered timestamp can take a long time - even longer than realtime playing sometimes

While 2 might be a simple bug (it seems to depend on the current bandwidth offered by Youtube) I'd suggest:

3) Add new setting "Don't remember playback position" (overriding the general setting)

I mostly use the Youtube plugin to play music videos from playlists and it would actually be better to never return to where a video was stopped at all. That's different from the use case when playing tv series and movies off a NAS.
