    DS 218+ Emby DLNA Problems

    Hey, i got a Problem using DLNA with latest Emby Server for DSM on my 218+. I got a LG TV and the TV cant find the DLNA Server (i should select/see it through the Input Section). But on my devices i can select the TV for DLNA Play to. So for the server the TV is visible but the TV itself cant reach Emby through DLNA. If i select a media source and want to play it through DLNA Play to simply nothing happens. i got another machine with emby which i powered up and through this one everything is working well (simple NUC with Ubuntu and Emby) ------ SOLUTION ------- Cut off my Repeater as the TV was on cable connected to it. If i let the TV Connect straight via WIFI to my router everything is working again. i think somehow it interrupted the communication..
  2. Samsung TV can't find Emby server v Tryed running VLC on PC as a DLNA client for testing purposes. It finds Emby but no media is found under Emby server. Worked on version 3. Any configuration should be edited/changed?

    Long Artist Lists in DLNA

    Hi, new Emby Server user here. Is there a way to configure Emby to divide up the artist list served over DLNA into smaller groups such as by letters of the alphabet? I have a largeish library of music with hundreds of artists. I stream my music using a Pioneer N-50 but both the N-50 and the Pioneer Android app require me to page though many, many pages of artists which makes it unusable with Emby Server. Although there are plenty of alternative Android apps to choose from, including Emby, that handle the long list of artists much better, none can stream gapless to the N-50. Other media servers such as Serviio and Twonky handle this, but neither support multiple artists unfortunately. Thanks, Craig

    Problema con subtitulos DLNA

    Hola! Estoy usandoel Emby a través de la opción DLNA. Sin embargo aquí tengo un problema. Cuando transmito hacia mi Smart Tv Samsung no me muestra los subtítulos. Ya probé todas las opciones de la wiki acerca del nombre, la organización y los formatos de los archivos. A través de la aplicación o en la PC sí veo los subtítulos. El problema es solo con transmisión DLNA. ¿Cómo puedo solucionarlo? Saludos! ----------------------------------- Hello! I am using the Emby through the DLNA option. , here I have a problem. When I transmit to my Smart TV Samsung does not show me the subtitles. I have already tried all the options of the wiki about the name, the organization and the formats of the files. Through the application or on the PC if I see the subtitles. The problem is only with DLNA transmission. How can I solve that? Regards!
  5. Hello, since upgrading to emby server Version my DLNA does not work anymore. I run a QNAP TS-451+. Also the QNAP DLNA server is affected. When downgrading to emby Version everything runs smooth again. Anything I can assist in resovling this issue? Best H.
  6. Hi, I'm running Emby for Windows When casting to a Samsung TV (model is UN40J5500AGXZD) by means of DLNA only first track is played. This occurs using both on web and Android apps. Please consider this is a Brazilian instalation, thus there is no Emby app for Samsung TV available. There is also another (somewhat older) DLNA issue that it would be very much of use to address as Samsung displays are very popular here. Should I include a server log?
  7. HI, I recently started to stream audio from the Emby server to a dlna speaker, using the web interface for selecting audio files. (Application version: Linux platform) The music is playing but the browser does not show any media player buttons. Leaving me unable to do anything like stopping the playing file or fast forward or change volume. You do not see what is playing and have no control. Playlist also do not function. You can start it, but it will play only one single file. (not the total list) I see this behavior in all my “different” browsers (laptop, phone, tablet). Is it “a work in progress” or should it function like the video playback? Regards Fire
  8. Hello. I have version emby server Emby succesfully find my TV Phillips and tap on icon with my tv in right corner. Later i press play film but my tv no show.

  9. I've noticed since updating to 3.08.3 and 3.08.4 for OSX , i've been getting the error stated as above. On the Netcast LG TV, it'll pop up with Device Disconnected Error meanwhile on my WebOS 2.0 LG TV it'll pop up with "Unstable Network". It seems with every forward updates the support for DLNA playback especially on the older LG Netcast TV's is getting worst and unstable. The older issue I had was with accessing the DLNA folders. Whenever i'm trying to access "Latest" it crashes the TV, this happens to any Emby media library that has more content, >100 media files. Those with very little content seems not to have this problem. The one way i could access my media files was to use the "Genre" folders to browse which is less than convenient option. This problem existed since before 3.06.4 This seems to start to affect playback experience on my WebOS 2 TV as well. This error cannot be due to my home network issues as the TV and Server is hooked up via gigabit lan cables. Do have a look at the attached logs to see if it sheds any light on the issue. I have reverted back to 3.06.4 which gives me no problems as above. Regards, Jon Log1.rtf server-63614022242.txt
  10. My TV is a Samsung MU8009 (UE55MU8009). Emby Server (Version is running on Windows 7 Pro (x64) The TV accesses Emby via DLNA and most of it works pretty fine (e.g play Movies an Videos). But it does not show any of my photos (JPG). The TV always say "unsupported file format" and the thumbnails are broken too. It looks like the filename extension is missing and the Samsung TV get confused bey this. When I select any Video, the TV previews the Filename like this: myVideo.mp4 Image Files are shown like this: myPhoto. When I access Emby from an other Windows machine with Windows Media Player (Does it use DLNA then?), all the photos are shown correctly. The Samsung TV also does show photos from other DLNA-Servers like my "FritzBox" Router correctly and in full resolution (at least UHD).
  11. Hello, HELP ME PLEASE!!!! I purchased the HDMI wifi EXCast4K dongle --> https://shopping.ezcast.com/prod/ezcast4k It works fine but has some problems because Emby server can transmit video files via DLNA protocol to the dongle, but it is not possible to control the time or volume. Using other types of software and transmitting the DLNA video stream to the dongle, time and volume control is possible. Could you verify and possibly solve the problem by reporting it to the programmers? I am available to perform all the tests you want to help you solve. Thank you
  12. On a fresh install of Emby Server on Windows 10 I'm unable to access my test media library via DLNA. WIth an iPhone (iOS 11.4.1) none of the apps I've tried that claim to support DLNA detect an Emby DLNA stream (Glider, Nplayer, 8player). Invoking refresh a billion times on the apps hasn't helped. Likewise on an Android tablet running BubbleUpnP. These apps/devices do see and access files on another DLNA server on the network. In Emby Server I have checked "Enable Dlna server" and "Blast alive messages," and I've tried knocking the Alive message interval way down to make sure blasting happens during my refresh attempts. I've restarted the server. Port 1900 is open. Emby otherwise works (I think). I can access the test library from the iPhone via Chrome at the server URL* The Emby app looks ok but I'd like the flexibility to use alternative apps via DLNA and I hope to use a receiver I have that has decent DLNA support as well. I can't find any basic guide to using DLNA with Emby--has anyone written one? The wiki shows "coming soon" in the DLNA section, but is there a 1-2-3 somewhere else that I'm missing? Log file attached. -Steve *Off topic, but just in case there's a quick fix: AAC files won't play via iPhone browsers (Chrome or Safari). I get a "Playback Error -- No compatible streams..." message on the phone. The Emby iPhone app seems to play the AAC streams but I haven't paid for it yet. Vorbis and mp3 files do play. Any suggestions for browser playback of AAC? Emby server log sc 2018-08-11.txt

    No Channels shown in DLNA LiveTV

    Hi, since a few weeks (I think since emby 3.4 but I'm not sure) there are no channels shown via DLNA in LiveTV Section. Is this a restriction of the new emby version? I'm using MediaPortal TV Server with MediaPortal TV Plugin Via Emby App Live TV works without any problems ;-) Greetz

    DLNA or Remote Playback

    Hello, I noticed that when using DLNA or Remote Control playback of ET for XBONE, the first song just repeats over and over. From the Web Client, I can click >> to get the next song to play, but then it repeats as well. From the ET for Mobile client, I cannot click >> (it is grayed out). I also tried DLNA directly to my receiver (Denon AVR5100) and the same thing happens. I'm not seeing anything in the logs, so I'm not sure this is the correct log. Please let me know if you need a different one. Thanks! Jason ServerLog.txt
  15. Hi, Version fixed the DLNA server (on Synology) not seen problem. But my first test was a video, Matroska container, with EAC3 audio, which my TV can't play. So I changed the Sony Bravia 2013 profile, deleting that codec (and adding dac,dts -- which this TV, in this country, plays fine). Success! Audio is transcoded, and it works on the TV (before it didn't, and a message about the format not supported appears). Then I tried to activate the subtitles... nothing, as if the video didn't have subtitles. But the container does have one, srt subtitle. Is this a bug? srt subtitles is included in the info tab on the profile, as supported by the device (and they work fine with many other mkv files, using a different DLNA server). Also I don't expect, or want, subtitle burning. These direct-play fine, as implied by the profile. TIA

    Verschiedene Probleme mit DLNA

    Hallo, seit dem Release ist DLNA Playback bei mir unbenutzbar geworden. Ich spiele sehr gerne meine Musik nach dem Genre ab. Seit der neuen Version klappt das allerdings nur sehr beschränkt. Oft startet der Stream nicht, wenn er doch startet dann werden meist nur 1-6 Lieder gespielt. Die Probleme treten aber generell bei Musik auf und nicht nur bei den Genres. Auch bei anderen Bibliotheken z.B. Hörbücher. Bei den Filmen konnte ich noch keine Probleme bei der Wiedergabe über DLNA feststellen. Der Sony TV zeigt zwar keine Dateien an, doch das ist für mich nicht relevant. Wie gesagt ich habe erst seit dem oben genannten Release die Probleme. Davor lief alles ohne Probleme. Als Clients nutze ich einen Raspberry PI mit gmediarender und einen Yamaha WX-010 Lautsprecher. In den angehängten Logdateien finde ich zwar manche Fehler kann mir aber kein Bild von der Ursache machen.

    Version DLNA not working

    Hi, I just installed the latest version available (3.4.0) for my Synology NAS, and everything seems fine except that the DLNA server is not seen by any device. No problem with the installation, server shows "running" and the Web part, media scanning, etc. is fine. Also the firewall on the NAS should be configured correctly (which is part of the installation, opening the 4, or 5 ports). On the same NAS I have other DLNA servers that have no problem working (Serviio, Plex); of course I stopped them before the installation, and there are other servers claiming port 1900, Synology's own AudioStation, and there's a minissdpd, but Serviio, for instance, works fine with those running. I did try several tests: 1. Emby's own rundiags, no real problem found, but several oddities: CPU 0 is marked as disabled, it is not, it finds several copies of ffmpeg, ffprobe (but Emby's log say its using its own, and this has nothing to do with DLNA). 2. Since my TV didn't find the server, and also Windows didn't show it, I tried to connect Kodi from my PC, but it doesn't detect the DLNA server. Same for Device Spy. 3. I deleted the installation, and did it again. No change. 4. I started changing settings, enabling debug logs, specifying bind address (Emby is binding to the IPv6 address, which I think is mostly useless, the TV uses only IPv4), setting the default user. The log does show that Emby finds the TV, and identifies it correctly. But it was Emby finding the TV, not the other way around. Nothing else in the log points to an obvious problem, but there are lots of messages like this (for each device on my LAN): 2018-05-04 19:27:31.279 Error HttpServer: Could not find handler for /dlna/9ff1b741560944b0bdeb8499f7c80d9e/description.xml 2018-05-04 19:27:31.279 Info HttpServer: HTTP Response 404 to Time: 14ms. 2018-05-04 19:27:31.279 Info HttpServer: HTTP Response 404 to Time: 6ms. 404 is the "not found" error message. Anyway I'm attaching a copy of the log, maybe somebody can spot the problem. TIA Emby Log.7z
  18. Hello, several of the movies I play on my old Sony Bravia via DLNA develop a sound offset during playback. Not all of them, but a considerable number. I mean that picture and sound divert and it is getting worse the longer the movie plays. Any thought why this happens? The files are intact, if I play them on the new Samsung (not using DLNA) they work fine. Thanks H.

    Casting to multiple devices

    Currently I’m trying to get a media server set up to play corporate messages and videos around the plant. I’ve managed to set up Emby a powerful Intel Xeon PC, and I’ve been able to cast a video file to one of our Panasonic smart tvs. However, this is not exactly the ideal situation. Ideally I want to be able to play a single folder, with multiple video files inside, and play it on a constant loop to the 8 TVs around the plant. Is this possible in Emby? Currently I’m only able to cast one file at a time, to one TV at a time...

    Docker Bridge vs DLNA

    Hi. Has anyone successfully enabled DLNA in Emby via Docker and has Bridge networking configured instead of Host networking? I follow all the instructions but DLNA is NEVER visible from outside the container. If I change networking to HOST, then everything works fine.
  23. I am running the latest server Version 3.0.5231.40980 with the new DLNA Server. I tried streaming to my PS3 and while the MB server shows up in the menu, there is nothing but an error message when I select it. It specifically says "there are no titles", and a "DLNA Protocol error (7522)" shows up. Both my PC and Plex have no issue connecting through DLNA. I have been using Plex up until now but was excited to try MB. I have a attached the resulting log file after selecting the MB server icon. Has anyone else successfully connected through PS3? Is there something in the PS3 profile that can be adjusted? Thanks. log.txt
  24. Hi there, I cannot playback to my Marantz anymore. It worked quite good before. But after the last two updates it does not work. I can select the Marantz SR7007 and start playing but the player bar does not proceed ;( Just on a side node. With my Fairphone 2 (Open OS 17.04.0, with only F-Shop installed) the Emby client also stopped working. I am getting a blank page with the man icon at the top right. Clicking on it leads to some page with programming code showing up. Greetings and thanks again for your good work!
  25. Hi It would be very useful if we could add other available DLNA servers on the network as media source, this way Emby can be a central media player/library. I run couple DLNA servers mainly because each has its own strengths. thanks
