What should I be doing differently for shows 2 work correctly on Fork of mini client

Troubleshooting the Android Client. (moved from wrong thread)
I run an FFMPEG covert outside of Sagetv and with this new android client I get some odd results when playing them.

When I start playing them I cannot skip forward or go back, if I try, the video restarts from the beginning.. No matter where I am in the show.

I compress them to MP4 files using this string. "c:\cv\ffmpeg -n -i"

I need to compress them so I can transfer them over cellular network to my motorhome while traveling. 1 GB vs 6 GB per hour of show. Cell data is expense!

Should I be converting them to something else, or use a different transcode string?

How do I troubleshoot this on the new client? I tried changing from the EXOclient, to ? (I cannot remember) nothing changed. Still goes back to the beginning if I happed to forget and try to skip or go back.. The wife is about to kill me if I do it again..

Below is the version I am using. I tried older versions. If I go back to a version from 2017 then they appear to work without going back to the beginning.

Here is the version that I found doesn't make the skipping an issue. Its extremely old. I am going to start trancoding with this version again. I wish I knew enough about this to be able to troubleshoot using the client. -Bill
