  1. embyserver.txt Hey guys. Using Emby for almost 3+ years now. Used emby in all kinds of scenarios and devices. Facing this weird issue suddenly. No work around. Videos don't play. They do play randomly but most of the times they don't play. Please find attached the server logs for the same. I am using windows pc as server and on the same internal server I am trying to play videos on my Android TV (MI). Attached is the server log file. Please help.
  2. I like to have My Media at the top of the home screen in the web client, but at the bottom of the home screen in the Android TV( ATV) app. This isn't currently possible, so is there any chance of having client-side options please. Thanks.
  3. EDIT To clear things up: The title of my post is the feature request itself, while the bulleted content is one proposed solution that I’ve come up with to achieve it. It doesn’t have to be “solved” that way. Seeing as how many Emby users value customization, a different proposition could be the following. Allow users to chose navigation styles on all clients by giving the option to utilize a navigation drawer (like the web app already has). The point of this request is to accomplish exactly what the title says because, at the moment, different clients offer exclusive, different
  4. Hi there, I noticed on my two different Android TV devices that Emby (latest public version) crashes while playing any song and going back to Emby's home screen. Let me know in case you need any specific data/proof how to deliver. K

    Movie theme videos

    Sorry if this has been more recently answered and I’m missing it. Brand new to Emby, grabbed a lifetime premier pass, loving it. My windows machine does the beautiful theme videos, from my searching I see the last time we had an answer to whether this would come to other platforms was over 6 months ago. Any chance this is being worked on for Android TV, would adore this on my shield app. Fantastic work here people, glad to have made the switch!
  6. Hi guys! I recently bought the new Chromcast with Google TV (Android TV) and it was a blast! The system fluidity speed is amazing. I just decided to give a better look at the app banner of Emby so I generated a APK launcher for the Emby Android TV app and I think it's a better fit in my opinion. I'm a graphic designer since 7 years now so if you need something else just ask!✌ PS: I have the Emby logo in vector, that's why. The app banner size is 1280px × 720px and the green color is the same as the Emby symbol logo. Cheers!
  7. Hi Team, can we get the fabulous option to prefer the logo over the cover in the detail view in the other apps, like we have it in Android TV App, too? Thx for considering

    Emby en android tv

    Buenas noches, quisiera saber porque, en mi smart android tv, aparece el mensaje, que la versión caduca el 15 de junio de 2020, y que debo desbloquearla o pasarme a emby premiere?
  10. I would like to have a feature than allow me to search on an library, only in that library and not in the others, or/and show's us in the general search bar on wish library the movies/tvshows/etc... is located (and turn it available on Android TV, Android, iOS, LG, Samsung, etc...) . "how it's search now" "Preview" after code in this e.g 1º %libraryname% is equal to French Library (Films - [FR] ) and in the 2º %libraryname% is equal to English Library (Movies - [EN] ) Kinds Regards
  11. Hi everyone, I would like to know if there was in the future update a way to filter the audio (Like e.g by english,french,spanish etc..) and the same for subtitles i can do that for container and etc.... but it doesn't show me for audio, subtitles. So i would to request it, as i can see on plex i can do that but not in emby. Not sure if this is related but don't forget to add this filter in all library type.
  12. I am having a recurring issue with the Android TV side of Emby, as detailed in the reddit post below. https://www.reddit.com/r/emby/comments/gn7gq1/server_unavailable_on_android_tv/ I am able to access emby from every other device I have, using web browser, android tablet, android phone and windows player. I got it working by force feeding it the IP but then this morning was doing the same thing. Any suggestions here would be appreciated, as I do like the layout and the QoL improvements that emby has over Plex. However if its a pain in the a every day to connect that is a deal

    TiVo Stream 4K (Android TV)

    https://www.tivo.com/products/stream-4k This just launched today for $50 early pricing. It's Android TV on a dongle with Dolby Vision support. As far as I understand it's the regular Android TV home screen, what you see in the product page is the TiVo app (launched by TiVo button on remote) https://explore.tivo.com/how-to/stream-4k/remote I've ordered 2 for out TVs, mostly because I love the TiVo peanut remote.. which also has a few buttons most streaming remotes omit like input, live tv, guide, etc. I believe it has the Amlogic S905Y2 chip (same as Google's dev device ADT-3?).

    Unlock the app, how?

    Hello! I've TS-112P QNAP NAS server with QTS 4.3.3 OS. All setup versions of Emby was failed, except This version is working flawlessy with my MiBox Android TV. If I click the 'Unlock App' button, it says 'Incompatible Server Version' but newer versions don't work on my NAS. I tried all ARM X19 versions of the Emby server; the installation doesn't give any error, the server page on port 8096 gives connection error on setup screens (I tried to restart the server and the NAS, to reinstall Emby, finally reinitialized the NAS and nothing changed). How can I unlock the app with Em
  15. Hi @@ebr, Android TV stats show that this movie is transcoding due to "Video Bitrate Exceeds Limit" Audio was expected to transcode due to playback through TV/headphones Playback rate set at Auto in ATV app Home Network Quality set to 4k - 120Mbps User Transcoding: Audio and Video Allowed Ethernet connection An ffmpg "Transcoding" log was produced which suggests Video encoding happened when it shouldn't have as the shield is capable of Direct Playback of this video - as proven when Video Trancoding is turned OFF As a test, I set Video transcoding = Not allowed and ATV Playback r
  16. Hallo Zusammen, ich will mal versuchen, das Problem auf die bloßen Fakten zu reduzieren: Auf einem externen Server laufen ein PMS und Emby, Emby erst seit heute, ich kenne mich damit also noch nicht wirklich aus und bitte entsprechend um Nachsicht :smile. Clients für den Test sind eine Shield und ein Web-Browser. Der Content ist so, dass ihn die Shield und der Browser über den PMS als Direct Stream wiedergeben können, das sieht dann in etwa so aus: Das gleiche File an gleicher Stelle mit Emby wiedergegeben sieht dann so aus: Ich habe sowohl im Browser als auf
  17. Latest version (1.7.78g) on Android TV (NVidia Shield). In a "Music Videos" library, I have the metadata set for each video under Title, Artists, Album, and Year. In the non-folder view, each video is listed, but only Title and Year appear. This makes it so that you cannot see the Artist on the video until you detail into it. I think it makes much more sense to show Title and Artist instead of Title and Year on the Android TV view. Attaching screenshot showing comparison of Android TV view vs web view. Thanks.
  18. Hello, I'm new to emby and very pleased to have found it. But on Android TV there is an issue when adding item to playlist. The buttons to validate the add or cancel are hidden. After test I know that add button is at left side. Nice to correct this. Thank you, Arsounet
  19. When playing playing a movie though the Shield TV, it stopped twice, needing me to return to the main Shield menu and re-select Emby. When i looked at the logs I could see that it was transcoding the DTS audio, but could not see why. The same file pays without any transcoding though Plex. I have tried another movie with DTS audio (and a higher bitrate) and it played normally The Shield is output through a Yamaha YSP-2700 which supports DTS. I have attached the main Server log and the remux logs. My experience of the Emby app on Shield is that is any transcoding (even ju
  20. I've been using the Android TV app for a few months since I upgraded to a Sony A9G TV. I always notice that when first trying to watch a recorded TV program that subtitles aren't displayed automatically even though I have set them to Always in the settings. I have to use the down button on the remote to access the OSD and click over to the subtitle optons and change them from None to English DVBSUB. I have also noticed when watching Live TV in the app I get the rotating circle after selecting Subtitles. I discovered this behaviour when testing for the above problem. It isn't a pr
  21. Hello everyone I got recently a Shield Pro which should my LibreELEC to replace. And my plan is to switch directly to the Emby App instead of using Emby for Kodi. But now I have discovered three things, that triggers a unwanted transcoding: Subtitles in the "DVDSUB" format, m2ts container and DD+ 7.1 audio tracks (is supported by the speakers). On Emby for Kodi its all fine (on the Shield). So can I do something against these issues in the Emby App? Thanks.
  22. Hello, Yesterday ExoPlayer released a new version that fixes SSA overlapping texts and supports positions. https://github.com/google/ExoPlayer/blob/release-v2/RELEASENOTES.md#2110-2019-12-11 Just wondering if we the android tv app will get updated soon with this version. If this feature works correctly there will be no reason to transcode this kind of subtitle. Regards
  23. Hello, When a channel doesn't have EPG guide associated it simply shows No Program Data Available when clicking into the channel. Can we include the channel name with that screen?
  24. Hi, The subtitles on Android TV / Shield appear too high on the image. The lower subtitle is a little above the lower black band of the movie. On the android app, iOS app, Chrome, Windows Theater, they appear in a much more logic position (next to the bottom). How can I change this? Thanks
  25. I have noticed that the Emby Theater for Windows (as well as the web browser playback) is lacking some of the UI elements/features of the Android TV app during Live TV playback. Such as the mini bar style guide option, and the Also On bar, with the shows thumbnails. Really would like to see these elements added to the Windows Theater and web player. As it stands, in Theater and web, u can not view the Guide or On Now unless u stop play back entirely and navigate back to those pages. It just just has a much more basic toolbar at the bottom. The bottom tool bar is much better in
