    Episodes stopped before their end

    With the latest version of emby on the Apple TV (4th gen) every episodes stops about 5 to maybe 10 seconds (maybe even more) before the video’s real end. Even trying to manually skip to the point of the episode where emby quits the plaback doesnt help. emby shows the correct video length but is just stopping playback too early. This is really annoying as it kills every cliffhanger. Any suggestions?
  2. Hello, all. I'm wondering if anyone has experienced this problem or might have a solution: I have four MKV files that play fine on my computer using the Emby app. However, when I try to play the file from the Apple TV Emby app, I see the movie and the chapters. But, if I try and play the movie, all I see it black and no audio. The counter shows that it thinks the movie is playing. Interesting enough, if I go back in and RESUME playback, sometimes it plays fine. Other times, I still get black. Haven't figured out why it works only some times. The four MKVs were all ripped from the same movie. All other movies that I ripped using the same product (MakeMKV) work absolutely fine with Emby Apple TV. There should be nothing special about these four files. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

    Default audio can't be changed - Apple TV

    I have videos in Emby that have multiple audio streams. When I choose Select Audio or Subtitles, I can select an alternate stream. However, the default stream always plays even when I select "Play with these selections". I have gone into settings and unchecked the "Always use Default Audio" option. That didn't help. When I restart the server, the "Always use Default Audio" option is checked again. Any idea what is going on and how I can select the desired audio stream? UPDATE: It appears to be related to a single ripped Blu-Ray. I'll check on my end.
  4. This new update has wrecked my Emby Apple TV experience. One simple question....WHY OH WHY did the developers remove the backdrops when I view a movie? There is now a blank backdrop with a lonesome logo and I feel as bored as Helen Keller in an art gallery when viewing my movies. The way Emby USED to utilise backdrops on the Apple TV was glorious. Backdrops for Apple TV was the defining feature for Emby, and is what what made me move to the green side from Plex. Looking at the picture I attached, who in their right mind thinks the new update makes it look better... Is this a simple mistake made by the Emby devs who accidentally removed backdrops? Or is this actually a decision made by the team? Because it is an absolute shocker of a decision if that's the case, and I am on the verge on cancelling my premiere subscription and moving back to Plex if its here to stay. So where did it go? Are you bringing it back? Am I wasting my time if its permanent? Couldn't the devs make an option to turn it on and off? Hopefully I am not the only one who is irate. The new update has surely taken the Apple TV project two steps back. Thanks.
  5. Hello emby team, Thank you so much for an awesome product. I left Plex a few years ago and have never looked back again. My main clients until rather recently have been x2 Minix Android devices running Emby for Android TV. These have been playing all of my content (besides H264 High 10) without any need for transcoding of the video stream. However since I swapped them out for Apple TV units it seems that all of my media requires transcoding. My initial concern regarding this was my h265 content but unless I am reading the logs incorrectly it would seem that even h264 content is being run through ffmpeg. In the H264 sample I've attached, the subtitle is not supported by the apple TV unit but it would seem that in addition to this the server is recoding the video stream as well? Stream mapping: Stream #0:0 -> #0:0 (h264 (native) -> h264 (libx264)) Stream #0:1 -> #0:1 (copy) Also for your information. Regarding the h265 content, I have run some tests with ffmpeg rewriting the tag with "-tag:v hvc1". This has allowed me to stream the files through iTunes (In mp4 format). Server & Client versions Emby: Server: Debian 3.16.51-3+deb8u1 Client: Apple TV 4K - tvOS 11.2.5 Thank you for any assistance you can provide!

  6. Hi, please bring an external player to the Emby Apple TV app, one which plays every file you throw at it without transcoding or remuxing. Infuse and MrMC are good examples how such a player should look like. Maybe you can work together with them? Please see also this thread in the ATV forum: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/39040-external-player-possibility/ Best regards Sonicblue83

    Apple TV problems

    I am currenty having the problem that the content on my server will play fine on the server itself and through my android app, but when played through the apple tv there is no sound to go with the video. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, i have so far deleted and re-installed the server with no luck.
  9. Not too sure if this is a feature request but thought I'd ask anyway. Is it possible to remove the emby logo from the top of the screen on the home page? It's very big on a 55" tv screen and uses up so much screen real estate. I already know I'm using the emby app, don't really think that it's needed? It would be nice if at the very least it could be something that the user can remove? I like all my library icons to be sitting at the top of the screen.
  10. Movies > Genres > Animated When I am in the above category on the ATV (or any genre folder) it also lists items from my tv shows. Is there any way that I can turn this off? When I am in movies all I want is movies not tv shows as well.

    Crashing on Apple TV 4

    Love the plugin! I use it on my two openelec boxes with no issues. However, I just sideloaded Kodi on my Apple TV 4, and when the plugin starts up, it immediately gives me this error: I searched around for other topics regarding this message, and saw a recent thread where a dev posted an alpha build to try, I tried that one and got the same result. I was just wondering if the addon is incompatible with the Apple TV build of kodi or not. Hopefully my error log will provide some clues: http://xbmclogs.com/pqvqbvvps Thanks for taking a look!
