    Hello!

    Thanks for the new VideoPlayer API.

    I'm trying to jump in a video at some specifics frames (forward or backward of the current frame) of a video with an UIButton.

    The problem is when I try to set the VideoPlayer.frame or VideoPlayer.time property, the RawImage that display the video is not updated. Only the first frame of the video is displayed.
    When I log the player.frame and player.time, their values are correctly updated.
    Also I tried to use the StepForward() method and it works great.

    Is there a way to update the render when setting a specific frame ?

    There is my test script :
    Code (CSharp):
    1. public class VideoAPITest : MonoBehaviour {
    2.  
    3.     public VideoPlayer player;
    4.  
    5.     public RawImage rawImage;
    6.  
    7.     void Start () {
    8.         player.prepareCompleted += PrepareCompleted;
    9.         player.Prepare();
    10.         player.playbackSpeed = 1f;
    11.     }
    12.  
    13.     void PrepareCompleted(VideoPlayer videoPlayer) {
    14.  
    15.         player.prepareCompleted -= PrepareCompleted;
    16.         Debug.Log("frameCount " + player.frameCount);
    17.  
    18.         player.frame = 200;
    19.         //player.Play();
    20.         player.Pause();
    21.         //player.Stop();
    22.     }
    23.  
    24.     public void OnBtnClick() {
    25.  
    26.         Debug.Log("frame " + player.frame);
    27.         Debug.Log("time " + player.time);
    28.  
    29.         player.frame += 30;
    30.         //player.Pause();
    31.         //player.time += 1d;
    32.         //player.StepForward();
    33.  
    34.     }
    35.  
    36. }
    Thank you!

    Hi!

    On Windows (for H.264-based codecs) and for all platforms (for webm), we did find that the seek was broken in a recent test pass. This will be fix in a future beta. Can you let us know what platform you are working on, just so we're sure this really is the same bug?

    Thanks for reporting this!

    Hi!

    I tried on a Windows 10 64bits machine in the Unity Editor and a PC Standalone build and it doesn't work.

    I launched the same project on a Mac and it works so I assume it's the same bug.

    Thanks

    It's been a few months -- any update on this? We really, really need this feature, and it's silly that it works fine on the Mac in development but not at all on our PC builds.
