31.0.23 (6/16/2023)

9. Fixed: Seeking a video close to the end would cause playback to stop.

Oh.  I wonder if it has to do with seeking beyond the end of the track?  I'm using
/Playback/Position?Position=%d&Relative=1
where %d is calculated as a percentage of the track length.  Could this now be failing causing the playback to continue rather than seeking to the end?  I'll have to try and capture it in the logs.

There was no change how the position is calculated. There was only a fix where seeking while you were already near the end of the file (eg. the file was already done reading and the remaining parts queued up for playback, usually within ~20-30 seconds of the end) would fail, rather then actually perform the seek.

I'm doing the calculation myself because there's no built-in "skip percentage" function.   So what should happen if you try to seek beyond the end of the file?  Should it fail or just seek to the end and perform whatever action is set to be done at the end of a track?

Are you hoping to pass a percentage into MCWS?  Would it be from the start or the current?  Thanks.

HiYa Matt!!  Having the built-in ability to set position by percentage would be great.  The percentage would be a constant based on the total track time.  The idea is that no matter how long or short a track is, the number of seeks to scan a track is always the same.    I have buttons on my Corsair mouse programmed to seek forward or backward based on percent rather than number of seconds which means if I have to scan through a lot of tracks looking for something, my thumb can be on autopilot and I don't have to think about how long a track is so I don't accidentally overshoot with 2 clicks on short tracks or have to click endlessly on longer ones.  Set to 10% and you know there will be 9 seeks per track.   You could choose absolute or relative just like you can today with the /Playback/Position call.  If absolute, you could think of them as dynamic chapter stops.  If relative, then it's from current position.  Make sense?
