Cannot Seek Within Track

Postby BadServo » Fri Sep 12, 2014 3:26 am

Today I noticed that while using the app, I was unable to use the scrubber bar to seek to a point within the track I was listening to. I drag the slider, then the track instantly jumps back to the beginning. Initially I thought this was because it was a longer file and I was on a cellularconnection. However, I've since tried several smaller tracks within my own wifi network and am seeing the same result. Is this a known limitation of the app or server? Any advise is appreciated.

This should only be a problem when you started a song while it was being downloaded, and I've only encountered this problem on my Nexus 5. Everything else I own works fine. The internal error it throws is that it does not know the duration so refuses to left the application seek within the song. I have not found a work around for this issue yet.

I see. Curious. I'm using a Nexus 6 as well, so that explains it. Maybe the issue will magic away when the Nexus X drops. Thanks.

this happened on my galaxy s3 running slimkat 4.4.4 in dsub. but only on recently added media. and even when it was precached never figured it out but now I'm on an lg g3 so I can't comment on it still happening.

I found a fix for not being able to seek when you are playing a song as it was downloading, but I don't know what to say about your issue even when playing precached songs. I'm thinking if it only happened on a custom ROM it was an issue with the ROM itself.
