The web app is “optimized for Chrome”. Been trying this trial free commercial skip (nice, since web app missed beta period). Can’t find which recordings have successfully been process and ready with commercial skip. Both Chrome beta -
and Chrome stable -
Same episode listing from Firefox beta channel -
Firefox lets me know!
Even an obscure browser forked from mozilla’s geko Palemoon -
knows when it’s ready!
What’s up with that optimization? Any one using Chrome regularly? with different results?
The web app does get unannounced updates. It’s now 1.9.4 build 984  have been forgetting to track. Last check was in July when it was 1.9.3 build 982 but I wasn’t using com skip.
I don’t use the web app for much beyond scheduling, so I’m not sure what else may be not be as optimized as one may think.
Didn’t you notice a difference whether or not you were notified com skip was ready?
Think it’s deeper, less optimization. I installed a UA switcher in Google Chrome stable. Tried their default for Firefox and the one you posted…
Chrome still won’t tell me com skip is ready.
It does make a difference, beyond just displaying the UA string. In the settings it tells me Firefox doesn’t support tablo connect.
Yet in the recordings tab, I have a “Most Recent” filter - which Firefox doesn’t have.
It almost seems the UA only has some impact as how the web app actually functions.
It’s double flubbed up. When I switch the UA in Firefox to Chrome — it’s still smart enough to know com skip is ready. Setting tab, thinking it’s Chrome, gives me connect settings. There’s no “Most Recent” filter in recordings.
For me, less optimization over knowing com skip is ready. Still screwy they never announce a web app update along with what’s new / changelog.
If there’s nothing in there that’s customer facing we don’t really see the reason to put out something that just says, ‘bug fixes and performance improvements’, especially since you’re pretty much the only one who notices.
The truth behind this mystery is that the web and mobile apps have never had the error messages or indicators for commercial skip:
Once enabled in your Tablo’s settings screen, most compatible Tablo apps (Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV) will display commercial skip success or failure messages next to completed recordings.
The the iOS & Android mobile and web apps are compatible with the feature but will NOT show success/failure messages.
