Fast forwarding and rewinding streaming movies on a Samsung Smart TV

My first non-SharePoint related post on this blog, but I really had to write an article about this Smile

Recently I have bought a Samsung Smart TV, from the ES6900 series. I love the capabilities of this TV. I use it for news reading, it has a Spotify app, and best of all, I no longer need a separate media player device to play my movies and music from my network.

There was one thing though, that frustrated me. The rewind and fast forward buttons on the remote control do not work when streaming a video from my network. Sometimes you want to skip a part you’ve already watched, or you’re looking for that specific great scene to show you audience how awesome your TV is. Tonight I finally found out how to fast forward a movie, and I figured I’d write an article about it.

When you press the Tools button on your remote control while watching a movie, you can then choose Timeline. From here you can use the left and right arrow of the menu control buttons on the remote, or directly jump to a chapter if your video supports chapters.

That’s it! Easy when you know it, but finding out is the hard part Smile (for me at least Smile with tongue out).
