The RW/FF or pick a time functionality doesn't depend on the server, but the renderer/player you're using... I can do it with my Samsung Smart TV or an old WDTV w/o any issue.

You must use the control-cross - the right button to go forward and the left to go back (rewind). The standard FW/RW-buttons are not working.

But on many of the newer mkv videos the function "spooling" is not working. At this files no playtime are showed (if you press the "info"-button) . I think this is a new way from the studios to boykott non standard players - but this is only my suspicion :?

I am also a new user to UMS. Very impressed having PURCHASED other media servers. When I use KRR, my previous favorite, I am able to use FR/FF and I do see progress bar move. I was able to see that on my two DLNA complatible players: Sony BDP-S3100 and LG B590. I do not have that functionality with UMS. Perhaps there are string(s) I can add, modify cfg files for each player?

One of the renderer icon files that are found does show player controls. What are the other files that have same ip as my Sony BDP-S3100 that do not show player controls? Thinking my player is not using the render file that shows the player controls.
