consider_idle_after checks the
media_position_updated_at attribute reported by the media player. It then compares that time with current time and if the time difference is larger than what’s specified in
consider_idle_after, the card will render as “idle”.
- When player is considered idle, progress/artwork/volume & media controls are hidden
- When player is considered idle, media information (if available) is faded and restricted to one row
- When player is considered idle and media is available/paused a play button is visible
The following example would render the player idle after 0.5 minutes (30 sec) if
media_position_updated_at isn’t updated, given the media player has
- type: "custom:mini-media-player" entity: ... consider_idle_after: 0.5
Here is what it should look like (sped up).
