Hi, How can I fast forward and rewind videos playing in webif?
In VLC 2.x and up you can access your HDR DLNA server by opening View -> Playlist. This will open up the playlist view. Go to Local Network -> Universal Plug’n'Play.
The playback is better than with the VLC add-in and there is a slider to go forward and back
I have installed VLC media player 2.0.5 , I went to View -> Playlist -> Local Network -> Universal Plug’n'Play but nothing shows at all. any ideas? thanks
Seems obvious, but you do have Menu >> Settings >> System >> Internet Setting >> Content Share = On, and have given it time to create an index?
The URL you need to put into VLC is the "DLNA URL" that is listed in the Media Details pane (pops up when you click on a programme name in the WebIF media browser). In your case it will look something like http://192.168.0.2:9000/web/media/xxx.TS.
However, I still don't think that will get you FF/REW. What you will need for that is to make sure your content is decrypted and use the samba package to make the Humax drive accessible as a network mount, then access the file directly rather than via DLNA.
It is no surprise that a smart TV doesn't like the Humax TS format.
Does View -> Playlist -> Local Network -> Universal Plug’n'Play still not show the HDR? It does for me! Advantage is you do not need a variable URL as the files are displayed.
Does your smart TV not have DNLA capability? The best cheapest network box to play HDR recordings is a Humax HD T2 but that is not easy to find now.
