    Default Android App - Chromecast and playback question

    Hi

    For a long time I have been using an Android TV stick, Kodi & the plugin with great success but now i have a few Chromecasts I have tried to switch to those. Sadly I am struggling with two features I get with Kodi, with or without the plugin and I cannot see an option using the android app.

    1) How can I fast forward a video, if I need to start again from say 10 mins in I cant, with Kodi I could not only skip forward but i even got the option to resume where I left off.

    2) How can I tell what I have already viewed. Folder say with 20 episodes in, I'm fairly sure the server has a play count but I cannot see anything, either a play count or a 'watched' indicator as I can in both Kodi and the Kodi Mezzmo plugin.

    Am I missing something, sorry if these are old questions, I have tried searching but cannot see any answers.

    I'm using the current beta version.

    Cheers

    Hi duyvh,

    I can't answer 1), but for 2) try this:

    In Mezzmo Server click Tools / Options and click on the Display Titles button. Use the Add Keyword button to insert Playcount in the displayed title. I put mine in curly brackets at the front of the title, like this image.

    Hope this helps.

    On Chromecast you can seek by dragging the progress indicator in the app, some files will not be seekable because they are being transcoded on the fly and seeking is not supported.
