Re: [opensuse] VLC 3 and Chromecast

Another problem is that VLC is pulling the stream via http from my home
server, and when I try to move to a section of the movie it says that the
"stream is not searchable" (directly on the computer it is), so it must be a
side effect of using http. Maybe I can solve that by using the laptop to
"cast" and using nfs or smb or sshfs instead of http.

Well, I tried with sshfs, on the laptop running oS 15.0 and VLC 3
something. VLC can go back and forth in the converted movie, but refuses
when it is sending to the chromecast. In fact, it goes back to the start
of the movie!

There is another problem, that the time stamps on the movie seem wrong,
VLC can not display proper time point of the scenes.

And yet another: VLC can display the subtitles fine, but not on the
chromecast.

I saw at somepoint an VLC Beta. I must try that one.
