Description

At this time when you press skip back button on remote or Shift+F2 on ubuntu, ST does following, regarding the situation:

video player - seeks to the beginning at 0 offset and starts playing
audio player - seeks to the beginning at 0 offset and starts playing
icecast player - tryies to seek to 0 position (you feel delay of processing that and finally switches to previous stream in playqueue

IMHO that is logically better to make it switch to previous track in playqueue/canonicalUrl. That will eliminate delay in icecast and all other players...

  • Target version set to 4.6

#4 Updated by Andreas Smas almost 7 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Accepted

The DVD player will need to get some separate love some day in the future..

XMP should skip without seeking to beginning

  • Status changed from Accepted to Fixed
  • % Done changed from 0 to 100

#6 Updated by Leonid Protasov almost 7 years ago

I suppose on endless HLS/RTMP/MPEGTS there's no sense to jump/seek to 0 position. It should behave like you fixed that for icecast... Audio playqueue behaves the same too :(
