After longer time, I updated from SVN and recompled SMPlayer. I then noticed that with MPEG-TS files unfortunately no longer the time since the beginning of the file is displayed as current position (e.g. 00:02:35, as I would expect for every file). Instead, the raw PTS time is displayed (e.g. 21:23:12), as output by mplayer. This makes it really difficult to tell at what position in a file the player currently is.
Enabling "#define MSET_USE_STARTING_TIME" in src/mediasettings.h restores the old behaviour; according to changelog the change was introduced on 2016-08-14:
- Code: Select all
* (Experimental) Don't use starting_time (affects seeking in ts files).
What seeking problems did occur here that led to disabling the old behaviour? Is it related to this thread
(I have the mentioned option disabled BTW)?
I think it is quite helpful when using a MPEG-TS file to see the current position relative to the file beginning.
