    Problem media stuck at 95% of lecture

    Title well descriptive. I use Emby Server (4.1.1.0) on my QNAP NAS TS-251b. For all media I tried to watch at 95% approximaticly of the lecture the media stop and I had a black screen instead of the movie. If you want more info please ask me. Thank you for your answer. emby server log.txt emby server full log.txt
  2. All of my media is stored on a Synology NAS. In fact, I currently have Emby running on my Synology NAS, but the Shield has stronger hardware so I predict running Emby server on the Shield should result in smoother playback of 4k content and transcoded content. But I don't want to spend hours setting up Emby server on a Shield and troubleshooting share connectivity problems if there are already known issues with the Shield reading/writing to NAS shares. Does Android Server running on the Shield have any problem reading from or writing to NAS shares, or are there any workarounds that are necessary for it to work? I really want to avoid using SMBv1 if at all possible.
  3. Im running Emby on Unraid. I have a couple network drives mounted to the unraid machine that contains movies and tv shows, one is a synology and the other is a netgear NAS. I'm running into a strange issue where the media on the Netgear readynas is not seen on Emby. It's mounted via SMB and I can map it just just fine so all the media is available (or should be) but for whatever reason none of the movies on the readynas machine are available in Emby (the synology works fine). The issue is isolated to Emby; I can see and use the media on this drive a number of other apps on unraid. I'm new to Emby but I believe this wasn't an issue pre Emby 4 release. Here's the error message posted on the logs; I'm just not sure what to do with it as it says it's not a directory. I can post any other logs if needed. Any guidance would be really appreciated as it's driving me nuts. Thanks a lot. 2019-03-06 04:12:48.746 Error LibraryMonitor: Error watching path: /mnt/disks/RNDU_media/Videos/Movies *** Error Report *** Version: 4.0.2.0 Command line: /system/EmbyServer.dll -programdata /config -ffdetect /bin/ffdetect -ffmpeg /bin/ffmpeg -ffprobe /bin/ffprobe -restartexitcode 3 Operating system: Unix 4.18.20.0 64-Bit OS: True 64-Bit Process: True User Interactive: True Processor count: 8 Program data path: /config Application directory: /system System.IO.IOException: System.IO.IOException: Not a directory at System.IO.Enumeration.FileSystemEnumerator`1.FindNextEntry() at System.IO.Enumeration.FileSystemEnumerator`1.MoveNext() at System.IO.FileSystemWatcher.RunningInstance.AddDirectoryWatchUnlocked(WatchedDirectory parent, String directoryName) at System.IO.FileSystemWatcher.RunningInstance.AddDirectoryWatchUnlocked(WatchedDirectory parent, String directoryName) at System.IO.FileSystemWatcher.RunningInstance..ctor(FileSystemWatcher watcher, SafeFileHandle inotifyHandle, String directoryPath, Boolean includeSubdirectories, NotifyFilters notifyFilters, CancellationToken cancellationToken) at System.IO.FileSystemWatcher.StartRaisingEvents() at System.IO.FileSystemWatcher.StartRaisingEventsIfNotDisposed() at System.IO.FileSystemWatcher.set_EnableRaisingEvents(Boolean value) at Emby.Server.Implementations.IO.LibraryMonitor.<>c__DisplayClass38_0.<StartWatchingPath>b__0() Source: System.IO.FileSystem TargetSite: Void FindNextEntry() at System.IO.Enumeration.FileSystemEnumerator`1.FindNextEntry() at System.IO.Enumeration.FileSystemEnumerator`1.MoveNext() at System.IO.FileSystemWatcher.RunningInstance.AddDirectoryWatchUnlocked(WatchedDirectory parent, String directoryName) at System.IO.FileSystemWatcher.RunningInstance.AddDirectoryWatchUnlocked(WatchedDirectory parent, String directoryName) at System.IO.FileSystemWatcher.RunningInstance..ctor(FileSystemWatcher watcher, SafeFileHandle inotifyHandle, String directoryPath, Boolean includeSubdirectories, NotifyFilters notifyFilters, CancellationToken cancellationToken) at System.IO.FileSystemWatcher.StartRaisingEvents() at System.IO.FileSystemWatcher.StartRaisingEventsIfNotDisposed() at System.IO.FileSystemWatcher.set_EnableRaisingEvents(Boolean value) at Emby.Server.Implementations.IO.LibraryMonitor.<>c__DisplayClass38_0.<StartWatchingPath>b__0()

    Emby on my old WD Mybook?

    Hi guys! So I bought my WD Drive years ago and it has been collecting dust for the last year or so. I want to make use of it now as a media server but I find the WD app as well as plex not really fitting(with Plex it is mostly the premium fees I want to avoid). Emby would be great for that an I wanted to know if someone knows how I get that running on my WdMybook live Any ideas how that could work or is there a better way? Would greatly appreciate any help! My Drive is a MyBook Live from WD
  5. I reinstalled Emby on my WD PR2100 with the latest beta version (3.6.0.84) after trying to find the Emby Guide data for live tv. Prior to installing the beta version, I still could not get any channel to play. I am using an HDHomeRun tuner with the premium tv package. I also have an m3u tuner. I set up the guide providers and refreshed the guide data. I am still now able to view any channel. All I get is the endless spinning wheel. One other fact that may be important is I just added a second router behind a Uverse router. All my devices are now connected to the second router and everything seems to be working fine. Plex also runs on the PR2100 and it has no problem playing live tv. I have attached the full server log. I cannot figure out why Emby refuses to play live tv. embyserverlog.txt

    Hardware acceleration and Qnap

    Hi, I'm thinking about buying a nas from Qnap (model ts-253BE), but I wanted to know if hardware acceleration is supported by the app. I've read an old thread where users said that it wasn't supported yet, so I was wondering it is now. Also, is the hardware acceleration working with h265 codec, or just h264? Thanks a lot !
  7. Hi Guys and Gals I'm looking into Emby at the moment, I have bought a premium month to test it out. I do very much like the speed of the UI, and the design of it is mostly good. The recognizing of I have a few issues with HW transcoding. Does it work at all? The NAS I'm running it on is a TS-853A, it uses an Intel® Celeron® quad-core 1.6GHz. I can see that it's recommended to use VAApi, but I don't see any help CPU wise in that, it goes straight to 100% CPU utilization when just doing playback. This makes it unusable for me, as the NAS has quite a few other jobs (Virtualization Station) that is quite important. Being a newbie in Emby, I'm not sure where to get any information for you to help me out.

    basic networking question

    I've been using emby since before it was emby, always been happy with it. I just run the server and client off my desktop computer and watch movies there. I'm finally ready to move into the current century. I want my server to be always on and be able to stream movies the to roku on my tv, or to tablets etc. To this end the system I have in mind is purchasing a NAS and moving my library to it, then purchasing a NUC and putting emby on it (and J River MC). The NAS will be hardwired to my router and send files wirelessly to the NUC, the NUC will then send the movie to the roku and/or tablets wirelessly. The question I have is when purchasing the NAS do I need one that does transcoding? if the server on the NUC is transcoding seems like you want the NAS to just send the file without messing with it. The NAS I have in mind is a synology DS218J (no transcoding) or a synology DS218. The later I would buy just for some future proofing, it has more memory and a better cpu, but it does do transcoding and I don't know if that can be turned off. As for the NUC, no decision yet, just a minimum config of intel I5 and 4 gigs ram. Any experienced suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
  9. I've got Emby running in a jailed environment on a XigmaNAS environment with Realtime Library Monitoring enabled and it does not seem to be recognizing any additions. I've got to go to scheduled tasks to trigger it, or wait for the daily / cron to run. If I go on the machine locally and do something it might recognize it, but if I drop the file in the directory via samba connection it does not recognize any changes. Is there another way to trigger the library scan without being logged into the admin area? Like if I want to set it up so someone can drop content into one of the library directories and see it in the library?
  10. Hi guys, I have all my Videos and so on stored at a NAS (which cannt be used as Emby-server), therefore i thought about a workaround with a windows machine as an emby-server in front of the nas (which uses an smb-release to acces my media). Kodi on my shieldtv works great with that smb-path. how are my chances to get this done? Is anybody out there, that uses a similar solution? i´d be glad for every stone of contention
  11. A quick question - would there be any possibility for an Emby server plug-in for the Western Digital My Cloud series of NAS boxes? I have a MyCloud Mirror (Gen 1) which currently supports my Kodi MySQL database (and the media itself) and am seeing some good things about Emby. So I was wondering if there was any possibility/plan for that NAS series, or would it need something of greater power? If there is a better place to ask this question, please move the thread (new here so still finding my way around).
  12. Hi, I just uploaded to my emby server some isos of my DVDs, they are identified in the gallery, but when i click on play, nothing shows up. I'm using the latest version of emby server with all the default emby plugins (so far...) on a synology NAS. Can anyone help Cheers
  13. I've always run my MB Server on a Windows 7/8 machine and had a separate unRAID NAS for my media. I would like to build a setup for my parents in a single box that they would be able to move from their summer cottage to their winter condo. I'm wondering what the best way would be to do this, specifically with the OS. The hardware I had priced out was this: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/fzBgzy Obviously that SanDisk and unRAID can be knocked off the bottom. What would you guys recommend for what I'm trying to do here? What reliable/low-maint OS for the storage pool (expandable to the hardware capacity of 8 drives) and MB? I intend to use primarily Roku boxes attached to any TVs at both locations which would be controlled by Windows/Apple Tablets/Phones.
  14. Hi all I haven't been on the forums for a very long time and am back for a query. Since Media Browser and the rebranding to Emby I have seen Emby transform into a masterpiece and am very thankful for the teams that have put in the effort and time into this nifty set of software and different packages out there to suit peoples desires in terms of being compatible between Operating Systems and devices. This will most undoubtedly be mentioned throughout the forums but I just somewhat do not know what to search when it comes to this. I have looked among the different options for the NAS Servers but have not come to any conclusion as to what is better or for my needs. I also don't have much of an idea when it comes to hardware or OS and what's available. If any users that have experimented with more than one device or OS that can actually comment on what they found better in comparison would be much appreciated. I am still interested in what users have to say about one still if that is all they managed to use. 1 - People who have experience in the different NAS devices? (QNAP, Synology, WD, Seagates, etc.) What components benefit what and why? Possibly specs or a basic rule of thumb for when it comes to picking hardware The gist from what I've seen really is, if I am wanting the server to transcode, I will need a decent CPU to follow suite, but if I am direct streaming or direct playing, the hard work has been taken out of it and can go for something on the lighter end? 2 - The different OS and what each ones pro's and con's are? (ASUSTOR, FreeNAS, Open Media Vault, QNAP, Synology, etc.) Just an OS on the whole. Features and ease of use. Can I change OS regardless of the device I end up with and could I run into problems doing this? Mainly where Emby shines the most in terms of being easy to set up and close to error free as a package as this is my main purpose of wanting a NAS Server. (I am aware that none of them have been under development for long so expect bugs and fixes needed) 3 - Anyone who has built a NAS Device and/or decided against a NAS and decided to build another PC for a server? Would it be advisable to build my own NAS or PC in terms of getting more what I want for a better price?I currently use my PC as the server streaming to a Samsung TV with the App, from what I believe, I don't think in my scenario transcoding it taking place at all as the media plays almost instantly and my CPU/ram usage on my PC doesn't seem to increase while running the server. The TV naturally plays MP4's and the bitrate I imagine is within what the TV handles as the MP4's are around 2gig each with 1080p video and stereo output. I would potentially would want the server to do a few other things such as a monthly backup of mine and my GF's PC's and possibly have remote access. Sorry for the long post. Thanks in advance for anyone that can be of assistance and has some input on the subject. Cheers Strugglez/ Mike.
  15. I'm running Emby server 3.3.1.0 on Synology DS418play with 6GB of RAM (emby server running on mono) The NAS is pretty much stock, I only installed emby server on it. I bought a HDHomerun Quatro few weeks ago. I'm experiencing burst of big glitches in the recordings. At first, I thought the Quatro was defective, so I contacted Silicondust support. They requested that I activate the debug feature in the Quatro. They told me that they see burst of packet loss. It can be fine for several minutes, then a burst of packet loss on a short period and fine again for several minutes. It's worst when recording 4 streams at the same time, but can see sometime burst of packet loss with only 1 stream. On the NAS, I don't see any spike on the CPU (pretty constant at 55% with 4 streams). The volume usage doesn't exceed 12%. The NAS and the HDhomerun are connected to an unmanaged gigabit switch. I changed the ethernet cable and I tried a different switch. No change. I extended the network receive buffers on the NAS (net.core.rmem_max and net.ipv4.tcp_rmem) with no change. I change emby server process priority using renice command to -20. This seems to help, but still see some burst of packet loss. To make sure that the NAS is capable of handling this, I opened 4 ssh sessions with the NAS and started grabbing 4 streams on the quatro at the same time using curl command. I repeat this 3 times. There was no packet loss. So pretty much remove the network out of the equation and the NAS is capable of grabbing 4 streams at the same time. It looks like the packet loss is due to emby server running on the NAS. I don't know what else to do to fix the packet loss issue. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated. Also, do you think emby running on netcore instead of mono would help? To my knowledge, the netcore version was not yet release for Synology NAS, right? Attached, emby server logs. 4 recordings at 7am. All suffers from packet loss. Thank you Log.txt

    Can't decide which NAS to buy

    Hi Guys. I'm hoping to buy a NAS to house all my media. The only issue is that I'm still new to storage, so I've been trying to research. I've narrowed it down to Synology and QNAP as those seem to have a direct package to download and setup. Which of the two brands do you recommend? Which model would be the best? I don't want something that breaks the bank. I've been looking at the QNAP TS-451, and haven't been able to pin down one for synology. Thanks
  20. Hello all, I am about to transfer all my media to a dedicated QNAP NAS and run Emby Server on that as well. I currently run my EMBY Server on my windows machine. I am just wondering how I would go about ensuring that all the watched, partially watched episodes etc are copied and displayed correctly in the QNAP NAS? Is it as simple as copying my entire Television folder onto the NAS, and therefore all the watched etc flags are there? Or do I have to do something special? Basically I am wanting to transfer or Migrate all my media and the server functionality to the NAS, but want all history retained. Is that possible? Cheers Mark Sorry guys I just found this, I am guessing it is still relevant? https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/Backup
  21. I'm running Emby server with two NAS devices. The older one, a Buffalo linkstation NAS is no longer sharing anything but media titles and some metadata with Emby. The videos won't play and none of the graphics are visible. The NAS is working fine - I can stream videos from it using other media browsers, but Emby just can't see anything regardless of what device I try to stream on. Does anybody have any idea what's going on or how I might fix it?

    Looking for advice on simple setup

    Hey everyone, I'm looking for some advice on the best approach to building a setup for my parents. I'd like to keep it as simple as possible so that it's very straightforward for them, and also so I'm not getting troubleshooting phone calls every time they want to watch something. Here's what I was thinking: - Emby server running on a NAS - Emby client on Roku - all video is max 1080p with x264 codec - FLAC audio? AAC? AC3? I'd like to have the best quality audio while keeping transcoding to a minimum (or none if possible) so they'll need a format that the client can decode without issue. I know Roku can support these but not sure about multi-channel support. They don't currently have an AVR, only a soundbar but it does have rear satellites so multi-channel would be good. - external blu-ray hooked up to my Dad's laptop with DVDFab as the all-in-one ripper/converter. I think a makemkv/handbrake setup might be a bit too complex for him. It's been awhile since I've used DVDFab so I don't know if it's the best choice here or if there is a better all-in-one alternative. He's on Windows 10. I'm going to help them get the initial library set up, but after that I'd like it so my Dad can just pop a new blu-ray into his external reader, rip/convert it with a preset I've set for him, copy it to the NAS/server, go downstairs and turn on the client, and then watch without any tinkering or fiddling in between. So based on what I listed above, do you guys think this will work? Any suggested changes I should make to the set up? Better server solutions? Better client? Once again simplicity is key. Thanks for taking the time to read my post. Any advice is much appreciated.
  23. Dear all, Let me introduce my context and then ask you what can be done with Emby: 1) My context: Kodi (17.4 Krypton with Misfit Mod AM Smooth Build) installed on: Windows10 Desktop, FireTV Stick, H96 Android tv dongle Synology NAS currently empty (no multimedia content). I have installed Emby. 2) What I would like to do: When updating the current Kodi Build I am using, when removing the current Build and uploading a new Build, when adding new addons on the Kodi installed on my desktop, then I would like to have all other devices updated at the same time. Let me know if I can do this with Emby. What would be the best tutorial/video that would guide me through the steps to have this setup? Many thanks for your feedback. OCdR.
  24. Dear Community Experts, I am a newbie and I like Emby a lot. I have Synology DS415+. Since installing Emby, Synology unit is messed up with hibernation - basically, the unit wakes every 30min / 1hr when there is no need for it. When I uninstall Emby, NAS goes into hibernation very nicely. It does look like the Emby server in NAS is impacting hibernation. I tried to adjust 'scheduled tasks' even to once/week (e.g., media indexing, media scan, etc), however this does not. I would be grateful if experts in the community have solution to fix this issue. Thanks so much.
  25. Hi, First things first I am using emby server on a windows 10 machine and media is played through 2 Roku's via WiFi and PlayStation 4 & Xbox One via Ethernet. I use a discrete modem and router setup in my network. I store my media on 2 WD Cloud NAS that are connected via Ethernet & I store media on the server PC. I cannot play any media on any device through emby. The server is accessible from all of the above mentioned devices. When I try to play media from the Roku for example the loading screen comes up the progress bar moves about a quarter of the way and just freezes. I can play all of the media using other programs but in emby its just frozen. I have recently changed from a modem/router setup to 2 discrete devices, and so began the problem. I made sure after the switch that the 2 NAS devices retained their original IP addresses, as to make sure that the server looks at the same addresses. Both of the NAS in the network present this same problem. I don't get any error messages whilst using the server. I attached some of the past log events when the server failed to play media. Thank you very much for any help. emby log 1.txt emby log 2.txt emby log 3.txt
