On Linux 32 and 64 do Tools->Media Player then open some music (wav file guarantied works). Press Play, then progress bar to rewind music. Player stops.
User must press button Play each time music was rewinded.
On all platforms Player not remembers volume. Always starts with maximum. But mybe it is not a bug.
Reproduced in 3.3.1 and I also feel resolving the problems could enhance the user interface.
Mark as enhancement request.

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Please read this message in its entirety before responding.
Your bug was confirmed at least 1 year ago and has not had any activity on it for over a year. Your bug is still set to NEW which means that it is open and confirmed. It would be nice to have the bug confirmed on a newer version than the version reported in the original report to know that the bug is still present -- sometimes a bug is inadvertently fixed over time and just never closed.
If you have time please do the following:
1) Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (preferably 4.2 or newer).
2) If it is present please leave a comment telling us what version of LibreOffice and your operating system.
3) If it is NOT present please set the bug to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment telling us your version and Operating System
Please DO NOT
1) Update the version field
2) Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
3) Set the bug to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

I have just submitted a patch for this to Gerrit. It fixes the problem for me on Ubuntu 18.04.
I don't repro with wav or mp3:

Maybe it depends on the GStreamer version. If I run "gst-inspect-1.0 --gst-version" I get the output "GStreamer Core Library version 1.14.5".
What version of GStreamer do you have?
I can't reproduce it either.

GStreamer Core Library version 1.16.2
In the gerrit patch you had a discussion and for me this is the current reality (without applying your patch): "It sounds like you are experiencing the opposite of the original bug. Instead of being always paused after seek is made, for you it is always playing after seek is made."
So if I am in paused state, it starts playing after I seek.

That's interesting, I wonder why we see different behaviour.
If I run "dpkg -l | grep gstreamer", I see the following installed:
libreoffice-avmedia-backend-gstreamer -- 1:6.0.7-0ubuntu0.18.04.10 -- amd64 -- GStreamer backend for LibreOffice
Do you have this also? If so, which version?

That package itself is irrelevant. The Debian package description says
"This package used to contain the GStreamer backend for LibreOffice. This has now been merged into the "core" package and this package thus can be safely removed once installed."
Maybe I should ask about this in the dev channel.
Martin van Zijl committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#34759 fix media player pausing when pressing time slider
It will be available in 7.1.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
Interesting: I bisected the "click progress bar while paused, starts playing" issue with linux-64-6.3 to https://git.libreoffice.org/core/commit/1eac5fa2fd661f9572fb9f9b30e2785c0d5b513a (using gen backend)
tdf#101524: seeking position shouldn't pause video playback
So apparently there was already an attempt to fix the original issue last year. With a build including Martin's change, I am still seeing the issue I bisected.
Martin: if you run with SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gen, do you see the issue?
A polite ping to Martin van Zijl :
Is this bug fixed? if so, could you please close it as RESOLVED FIXED ?
Otherwise, Could you please explain what's missing?
