andrewkatz posted a topic in SynologyHi I'm a newcomer to Emby, having installed it yesterday, so I'm sure I must be doing something a bit dumb: I'm sure someone will see immediately what I'm doing wrong, but I've scoured Google and the forums with no luck... 1. My setup I have a Synology DS918+, running Emby 126.96.36.199-1. I have an Emby Premiere subscription. I've pointed Emby to my media folders, which contain a mixture of MKVs, AVIs, and MP4s, as well as movies in .iso or .dvdmedia (Mac) format. 2. My issue The movies with the .iso files appear in my library fine when I look at them from an app (iOS) or a browser (Safari or Chrome on MacOS), and when I click play I (usually) get a 'loading' ring for a little while, and then the screen fades to black as if to play (and I get a small logo with the film's name in the top left) all as expected. However, I get no video or sound, even though I get the progress bar moving. The stats all seem to say sensible things (type of audio, resolution, bit rate, time left to play etc.). This is all when connected to my local network (I haven't tried streaming remotely yet) and the issue is the same irrespective of whether I'm using my laptop (MacOS) or my iPhone. Strangely, if I select the 'download' option from the Emby library screen, the film will download on my laptop as an MP4, which then plays fine locally (using VLC, for example). 3. Movies in .avi. .mkv or .mp4 files all play fine. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance Andrew
I've been looking for an option that was previously available in the media browser/emby add-on for windows media center. That is if a movie is a bluray (.iso) file I used to have the option to select an external video player for certain types of files, i.e. bluray (.iso) files, and Emby would redirect them to an external video player that can play bluray (.iso) files. What I would like to find the answer to is there currently any option available to do this in Emby for Kodi. I have several blurays ripped to (.iso) files that would be nice if I could still play them from the movie menu in Kodi/Emby.
Using Media Browser Classic, for media center, the playing of blurays (.ISO) files is handled by Daemon Player (or other vitual CD emulator software). In the configuration it must be set up and uses the autoplay function then Media Browser will play (.ISO) files with no problem. While streaming from my computer to a remote location they will not play. Does anyone know why this and is there a solution to playing these types of files remotely.
