Loaded emby for fire tv today,works great however purchased to unlock but it still says in trial till 11th may.Will the trial stop displaying now i have purchased.

Amazing Thankyou! Off to load this on my Box now and get rid of Kodi and Emby Addon.

Thanks for all your hard work!

 

EDIT: Very nice soo far! Silly question but is there a rough ETA on Music Support? Use it a lot for music when training/exercising.

No ETA for music yet, sorry.  These devices have such good options for music already that it hasn't been a very requested feature.

Will this work on other Android devices eg a Minix or Tronsmart?

Congratulations Eric.

Thanks! I have been waiting for this. Nice job! :)

Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?? LOL! Nice job Ebr, keep up the great work.

gonna pick up a fire stick just to try this.  Thanks

This is absolutely fantastic. So grateful for this add-on.  Finally reached Emby nirvana :)

 

Because of this, I'm finally able to ditch my Windows Media Center HTPC. Actually spent last night migrating the motherboard / CPU / memory to my home server...finally have enough speed to serve up files quickly to all of my devices.

 

Woot!

I bought my Fire TV Stick for this reason :) I have been using the mobile app on there through sideloading and using MXPlayer to handle playback as it can deal with most things, it will be nice to be able to have a proper app without having to dig through the settings menu.

 

Quick question for any one who has purchased it, can you still use an external player? MXplayer does a great job for handling my native bluray rips and most of other content without issues, don't want to fall back to transcoding in the native player.

iiitttss greaaat!

I too would like to see the music library.  It's the last item left in the pursuit of moving off of the dedicated HTPC. 

 

If anyone knows of a music player for Fire TV, please let me know... thanks.

Any chance of making the 'lines' button on the remote (for context menu) into the live tv guide button? Would make a big difference to me. Also waiting and hoping that new version of server will be faster tuning into channels (takes 20 seconds atm!)

Other than that, brilliant.

 

Thanks, Duncan

What can I say here... well its great the menus are clean and simple, in line with the fire TV sticks own so users are at home straight away

Its fast and responsive and looks good on the screen

But it is limited to 3GPP (.3gp) and MPEG-4 (.mp4) (video anyway)
(source - https://developer.am...specifications)

Any other video needs to be transcoded and when you want to watch 1080p video with 7.1 sound not even my server can do it just maxs out the CPU
My server is a Fujitsu Primergy MX130 S2 2 CPU x 2.99 Ghz 32GB of RAM

If you have android TV or the fire TV (not stick) then you can install VLC and Emby can use it to play other media with out the need to transcode, I am told this works wonderfully (not yet seen it first hand)

But at the moment no VLC for fire TV stick so no real use for this app :( its such a shame as the app is great and I was about to buy a Fire TV stick for all my rooms and replace my old Windows 7 Media Centre hosts

If any one knows of a way around this I would grateful for the information and would update this straight away
