What happened to 30 second skip?

tmr0861tmr0861 Posts: 8Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Running Roku Plex app v4.3 build 2.

I used to have 30 second skip forward and 10 seconds backward. Now it is 10 and 10.

Please bring it back!

Thanks!!

    It's still there. During playback, a single press of the FWD button will skip 30 seconds and resume, while a single press of the RWD button will rewind 10 seconds and resume. The left and right buttons will increment in -10/+10 seconds.

    I would prefer a 2 minute skip. That seems to be about the minimum for a commercial break.

    That is the problem. Normally i want to skip 2-3 minutes of commercials. If I press fwd, it buffers 30 seconds and then I have to repeat it 6 times with a buffering delay each time. I used to be able to press right button 6 times and it would quickly skip 3 minutes. Now I have to press right button 18 times to skip ahead 3 minutes of commercials. It would be more user friendly if left and right buttons incremented -10/+30 seconds.

    I just picked up a ROKU ultra, partly to trial DTV NOW and partly because the PLEX client on my VIZIO TV has a bug that plays colesed caption on some content without control. The app is updated from PLEX (or so they say) but VIZIO has no plans to distribute (TV is 2 years old).

    Any update on fixing this 30 skip problem. I'm beginning to live my worst fears of all this "cobble together" entertainment services where nothing really works when it's all put together and no one steps up to solve anything. You know, the reality gap that exists between marketing and implementation!

    I noticed with the recent Roku Plex Pass preview client update that the FF/RW buttons no longer skip forward 30-seconds or back 10-seconds on first press. The FF/RW functions are much more responsive so it is not that much of an issue but I wanted to find out if this is a feature or if the prior functionality will be restored.

    If you hold down the D-Pad Right button - you get a scrub. If you have Video Preview Thumbs on - you know exactly where you are.

    I believe this response is incorrect for this category as it references X-box D-Pad controls and not Roku.

    But it is the same on the Roku. Right arrow pressed during playback pops up the "indexes" and you know exactly where you are in the video as you progress through the file. A single right arrow press jumps about 30 seconds forward pressing and holding it moves through file fairly quickly stopping when the arrow is released.

    The FF and RW behave similarly at three different rates but require a keypress to stop the movement.

    For the indexes to appear they have to be enabled for the library involved and they have to have been generated. You can tell if a given video has indexes by, in the web interface, looking at the "info" and seeing if there is a line saying "Indexes sd" under that "part" column.

    BTW: I am pretty sure @JuiceWSA was talking about the Roku not the X-Box
