Why doesn't jit.qt.movie send a seeknotify?

    Jan 20 2021 | 8:56 am
    In the included patch, open a video file with the read message. Once the file is read, its length is asked, and when the frame count is sent, then I want to jump at the end of the movie. But jit.movie doesn't output the expected seeknotify message. It will if the frame_true message is resent by hand, or if a rather long delay is inserted.
    What am I doing wrong? Using a delay is something I prefer to avoid…

      not sure why read isn't working, but changing to "asyncread" seems to work as expected. in general "avf" engine prefers asyncread to read.

      If you don't know why it isn't working, who will? :-)
      asyncread does work! Many thanks.
      What are the advantages of using one message or another?
