Start movie/episode playback from tinyMediaManager

1 minute read

With version 2.1 - r685 we added the possibility to start a movie/episode (and downloaded trailer/samples) directly from within tinyMediaManager. The play is included in the details tab of movies and episodes:

Play movie Play episode

Since we (have to) use the systems default media player, there are some restrictions for this function: We are not able to start multi part files, because there is no way to pass multiple files to “all” media players out there. There is also a problem starting at a defined place in a video file (e.g. the second episode in a multi episode file). To handle this restriction we’ve added the play buttons also to all playable files (movies, episodes, samples, trailers) in the “Media files” tab:
