App doesn't remember where left off

missionspartamissionsparta Posts: 222Validating, Plex Pass Plex Pass

All the other version of Plex will remember exactly where in an episode you stopped at. I can't seem to get the android version to do this. Am I missing something or for some ungodly reason did they leave this out?

    Sorry. Let me clarify. If I go and seek out the actual episode I stopped at, then hit play, it will resume. But if I go into the main seri3s menu and hit play, it will play the last unplayed episode, but won't resume where I left off on it.

    So is this not possible in the android version?

    I'm able to reproduce this. This is not the expected behavior. Thanks for the report, I'll let the devs know.

    Does today's update address this issue? I've read the release not s but they can sometim s be confusing. As a result, I am still seeing the issue mentioned in this thread in the latest update.

    This issue still hasn't been addressed.

    This should have been fixed back at the end of June. If not fixed for you, there is another issue. Please recreate the issue and provide new PMS logs.

    Ok. Here she is! Just to make sure we understand what my issue is...it pertains to when you have a bunch of episodes synced from one series. In the past I could watch what ever I wanted with the episodes of a synced show, stop where I wanted, and if I went to the main root of that show in the synced content and hit play, it would start on the episode I left off at as well as where in the episode I did. Now the only way to resume where Ieft off, is find the episode is stopped during, select that episode, and then hit play from the menu for that specific episode. Somewhat a pain. The app does remember where I left off still, but it only works if I figure out what episode it is and go to it directly; which kind of defeats the purpose of it remembering where I left off if I have to do half the work and find that episode.

    Ah sorry. I got my issues mixed up. This has not been fixed yet. There was another issue related to the Chromecast not resuming, which was fixed.

    The devs are aware of this issue. No news on when a fix may happen.

    Really appreciate you getting back with me. At least I know the issue is being addressed. Thank you.

    Yep. While it doesn't sound like a big deal, it removes the simplicity and ease of use of Plex and puts the remembering what episode I left off on back on me. Ugh

    ....and that's still a negative, Houston.

  • ukcomsukcoms Posts: 1Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    Is there any update to this issue as i have had the same problem for a while now and like some of the others it is becoming a pain.

    Thanks

    It's on the Todo list, but no update so far.

  • missionspartamissionsparta Posts: 222Validating, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    Not to pressure anyone...but is this ever going to be addressed?

  • missionspartamissionsparta Posts: 222Validating, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    maybe not.

    Sorry, no movement on this issue. Just to be clear, the app does remember the position of an in-progress item, it is just not using that information when playing from the Show or Season level. This is not a bug, just something that was never implemented. There are a few other little things like this that were never implemented and hopefully the team will be able to get to them one day.

    Oh. Thought it was a bug because it works that way on the Xbox version and it use to work that way on the Windows App (which has become a complete mess in its own). Yes, the Xbox version will search where you left off (episode and position in last episode) and play from there when you hit play from the main show menu or season menu. Much easier than searching through each step (show, series, episode) to figure out where you left off.
