    ALAC/m4a files playback error

    Hello everybody, since I started using Emby (2-3 months now), I've never been able to play my ALAC/m4a hires audio files. Every time I try to play a file, the "no compatible streams" error comes up. This happens on macOS version of Emby (last update), on the webOS version, but it doesn't happen on my iOS device. Think I've read any thread on the matter, to no avail. Thanks for any help on this Logs follow --- hardware_detection-63721763186.txt embyserver.txt
  2. So I just installed Emby and finally was able to get everything configured to the point where I was ready to watch a movie and once I clicked on play i am getting this error " Playback Error No compatible streams are currently available. Please try again later or contact your system administrator for details. This is happening on both TV Shows and Movies and I am not sure on how to fix the problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance! Not sure how many log files to upload and I am currently on Linux Mint (Latest Version) and I am also running the latest version of Emby Server as well. If you need anymore information please let me know. I also wanted to add that I have my media sources going to a webdav folder as well where all of my tv shows and movies are stored. Those are located in linux under /mnt/dav embyserver.txt embyserver-63690095862.txt ffmpeg-transcode-1cf952ad-845b-44c2-8a2d-916893fe6032_1.txt ffmpeg-transcode-3db184a5-e8d4-4580-a7bd-8f65d41da01b_1.txt
  3. when trying to watch any video while not on the local network it will stop and go like its buffering like the network is slow or something. my tnas has like 5gb of ram so i dont think this is a memory problem. i have checked the network 3 times and the speeds are fine with 10mbps up so that should not be a problem. any idea what could be going on because i have ran out of ideas. i am under the idea thats its a buffering problem because if i pause the video and let it sit their for a little but the problem is gone.
  4. Hi, Not sure if this feature already exists but would appreciate any input. I wonder if there is a way I can have emby for Kodi autoplay (perhaps select highest quality) a video when there a multiple versions available? Cheers, Ryan
  5. Next Chapter and Previous Chapter are now missing, or replaced by inappropriate functionality for video playback, in Emby Theater. Next/Previous Chapter are two of the four basic transport control tools for video. Skip Forward / Backward enable the user to skim around (and provide a substitute for conventional fast forward and rewind). Next/Previous Chapter enable the user to jump quickly and precisely between major points in a movie (and perhaps in TV shows if so authored). They replicate the behavior found in every DVD, Blu-Ray and UHD player for playback of physical media. These chapter locations come by default in all media I've bought, so I've come to rely on this feature. There's some indication that Next/Previous Chapter were removed from Video playback, and now only work for Audio. That goes against user expectation, is a fundamental feature loss from how Emby Theater worked just recently, and is contrary to Emby's documentation. I trust the normal behavior can be restored expediently. Thanks. https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/Keyboard%20and%20Remote%20Support control-f: next chapter or track control-b: previous chapter or track

    Playback Issue - .MKV files

    Forgive me if this is related to transcoding & has been discussed in another thread. I'm not completely sure it has anything to do with the file format, but it does seem to be an issue I've noticed (so far) to be affecting only .mkv files. I'm not able to start watching a video from the middle or anywhere other than the beginning, and pretty much any hopping around will cause the video to crap out. Is this just a limitation of the format, a bug somewhere in Emby Mac OS server, or perhaps connected to some kind of corruption or defect in some of the individual .mkv files I've collected or converted. Any guidance appreciated!

    Emby Folder issues

    I have running on an Unraid server. Ever since the update to I am having artwork trouble with my folder movies. I don't know if it's ALL folders but I do know that all affected titles are folders. I'll give one example. Sin City currently has Star Trek The Motion Picture thumbnail in the Emby web interface. If I update it to Sin City through Identify it will stick. However, all of my Star Trek movies (older ones only that are folders not my ISOs) flip to Sin City along with a few other folders - Superman Batman Apocolypse, Sucker Punch ... Now if I go back and fix those I will actually get a higher percentage of accurate thumbnails - but - Sin City will eventually flip to one of the Star Trek thumbnails! If I look at the artwork on the server - either within the Sin City folder or outside of it, all the artwork labelled Sin City is accurate and all the Star Trek artwork is accurate. I'm very confused about all the artwork storage locations and cache options between emby and Kodi to the point I go crosseyed - I do have artwork in both locations (inside and outside the folder) and probably different locations in Kodi as well however for purposes of testing the past few days I've completely removed Kodi from the picture. @@Happy2Play @@cayars
  8. Hi Guys After using Plex for many years i have given up on them, Currently i use the Plex desktop app to play 24bit high res audio to a chrome-cast audio via Airfoil and it direct plays NO Transcoding etc. Why can i Not find an Emby Mac desktop App? When i play 24bit via the chrome browser Emby says it's transcoding it. TIA L33
  9. QNAP Android 9 Emby 3.0.87 Using Android app with Wifi, playing a song, everything fine, also caching. When changing network to LTE, app stops caching, playing stops at the end of puffered data - next song not possible. The other way round - LTE to Wifi - works fine. This is a big playback problem, because when start listing inside and moving outwords, the connection type changes and playback stops. The only solution right now is NOT using Wifi at all. Attached log-file. Mobile listing should start at line 700. I don't see, why emby stops after network connection changes.
  10. I'm just trying to figure out if I have something set incorrectly or is Emby really has different playback screens for TV shows vs movies. When you get to a TV show episode playback screen, it shows the audio and video details and then has a drop down list of the available subtitles. When you get to a movie playback screen, the same information is not shown. The movie does have the details embedded. Using Tiny Media Manager, I get this information: So, I'm wondering what I need to do or change with my Emby settings to get the movie playback screen to show the same information as the TV episodes. Just as an FYI, I have also added an external subtitle file (.srt) file for this movie. So I would hope that some kind of subtitle information would be shown. Any help would be appreciated. I am still setting items up and have only done about 15% of our movies. I want to make sure that I copy everything the way Emby likes it.
  11. Hi, I'd love some help please with a frustrating playback issue that suddenly emerged on my Nvidia Shield running Emby for Kodi (native/direct paths). Native/direct sync works. Kodi very briefly shows "Working..." when I press play, then goes back to the menu, all within half a second. My quick and highly uneducated look at the log file showed some errors around demuxing, but I don't know if that's significant. Recent changes to server I imagine it's relevant to point out I've recently upgraded my OS X version on my server machine, and also tinkered with its static IP address (but I ended up returning the address to what it was before the issue) - see below for more details. I'm sorry, I realsie it would be very helpful to be clear when the behaviour started in relation to both of those changes, but I cannot be sure which of those was responsible. Native vs Dynamic The playback error only seems to happen in my preferred native/direct path configuration, so that's a pretty good hint that it's a path/network issue I guess (I'm no IT expert). If I go through the emby for kodi app and select folders with (dynamic) written next to them they work ok, but I'd love to get the snappier native playback working again. Issue on: The playback issue is only encountered on my Nvidia Shield P2897 box, which I use Emby for Kodi (4.0.5) add-on on Kodi 18.4 (native/direct paths setup). Unaffected - these stream fine When I run Emby on my Android phone (galaxy s10e) I can access and stream videos on the server fine via Emby and VLC on the phone, but I guess they use the dynamic playback mode as well. Server My Emby Server ( is running on a late 2014 iMac, which I recently updated to OS X Catalina (10.15.1). I'm sorry I cannot be specific with times, but the Kodi issues started around this time, and I saw a post about clicking on and off the sharing on the mac to get things running again, and I've done that. As mentioned above, I also changed the IP address of the server for a brief period, as my phone was taking the same IP address, but I then moved my mac back to it's original IP when I worked out how to set a static IP for my phone to stop them clashing. The server's IP is now back to the same value it was when it worked, which is the same as that in the "Shared Network Folder" in the library, and I've done Emby for Kodi database resets and resyncs to be sure the Shield has the right IP paths, but to no avail. The log is available here - I'd value the interpretations of a skilled user (scroll to 2019-11-18 at 19:16 to 19:17).
  12. So I am having trouble with my pre-movie trailers in cinema mode on everything but the web browser. The playback will play the trailer and then either hang there or just stop. Have had a look in the dashboard while it happens and it doesn't seem even to try to start transcoding/playing the movie. I am using a set of custom 2-5 second trailers that appear before movies only resolution i have found is to turn it off for now but would realy like to keep using it logs atached and even willing to read other articles to try fix but its been 2 days of searching with no luck sofar embyserver.txt

    Playback Continuously Looping

    Happens with live TV or playback of movies/shows. It'll play for about 15 seconds and then skip back 15 seconds and repeat that. ffmpeg-directstream-8fe9f110-beb7-4d7c-af02-164bd2952ba1_1.txt embyserver.txt

    Problem with My Z: Drive

    Hello, My Emby server has been running smoothly for about a month now and I have had no problems. Yesterday evening, for no apparant reason, I stopped being able to stream any TV shows or Movies. I first noticed this on the server itself when I tried to play a show while working at another computer. The show page loaded, then when I clicked 'play' on the episode Emby loaded the playback screen with the loading wheel. After a few seconds, I got an error stating "No compatible streams are currently available. Please try again later or contact your system administrator for details." I am not sure what this means. I have confirmed that the bitrate limit field in the settings is blank. There was no one else streaming anything at that time. I replicated the problem on my phone (over LAN and then WAN). I restarted the emby server, same error. I restarted my windows PC and applied windows updates and same error. I have tried to use a couple of different accounts on a couple of devices and have not been able to play anything back. Error logs from my last attempt attached. EDIT: I also noticed that at the same time, images stopped loading for most of my files (screen shot attached) embyserver.txt ffmpeg-transcode-b523cad4-290f-4730-a85a-4ced39e37ca6_1.txt ffmpeg-transcode-c2055e20-9ad9-4a6d-9ece-ef517cb20900_1.txt
  15. Hello, I'm attempting to listen to my audiobooks on my server via the Android app, and there doesn't seem to be a "resume from..." playback option? When I load the file in a web browser it has the resume playback as the first option, but when I select it on the Emby android app the only options available are Play, which starts from the beginning each time. How do I get it to resume playback from where I left off on the app?
  16. Hi, it would be very nice if you could change 1-2 things 1. when a video is playing and OSD is shown pressing the Back-Button should make the OSD disappear but actually the whole video stops playing and I fall back to the menu screen. same behavior as netflix, amazon prime video or maxdome would very nice ;-) This should not be a big thing I think. 2. actually it's not possible to access the progress bar of a movie with a normal remote. it's only possible to click on the progress bar and jump to a special timestamp of the movie if you have a "magic remote" with some kind of mouse integrated. It would be very nice to get the possibillity to access the progress bar by pressing the up-button once the osd is visible and then jump within the movie by pressing left or right buttons on the remote (maybe in 5 or 10 min steps) because again... same behavior as netflix, amazon prime video or maxdome would very nice ;-) thanx and keep on doing your great work! :-)
  17. I'm honestly not sure how to set up the technical specs so its possibly I just don't have something set up correctly but I constantly experience lag issues with larger file movies. This usually only happens with large (20G+) files. Most of these are 4K so I'm thinking thats the issue but I have no idea how to fix this. Any help is appreciated. I watched Dr. Strange for a few seconds until it started stuttering and attached the log ffmpeg-transcode-96e53d5e-0834-4512-8939-ff94567a371e_1.txt
  18. Hi @@Luke, I have a problem with subtitles which can't be show anymore after to pause the episode, leave the tab (2 hours after) and try to open it again just after in chrome. I already try with and without encode subtitles on the fly. I uncheck for the moment this option and it's always bug so it's not the problem. I tried to turn off subtitle. Leave and open again the emby tab, start an episode, select my subtitles but same problem Every users on my emby server get the same issue. We're using Chrome browser. With Kodi (emby plugin) no issue. If you need info, I will try to send you even if I don't see anything wrong in the logs... I will try to give you the way to reproduce it: 1) Open chrome, embyweb and load a 1080p Multi file in mkv (it's my case, but I don't think the quality is really important). 2) look it for example, half of the episode. Click on pause. Lets the episode and the tab open on chrome. 2 hours in my case. (I think THIS is important, and let's the episode in the browser will create the issue after) BTW: I don't know if it's normal and link but when I look the admin dashboard, I can see during this 2 hours, the red line (throttle) increases little by little like 0.1% every 10 seconds, so after 1h30, the line is complete ... Not sure it's a normal behavior, anyway. 3) You click on play button, everything is fine, I look 5min like that, I get my subtitles, I'm happy 4) I close the emby tab, in other words, the episode that i watched 5) THE PROBLEM I open again embyweb, try to click on "continue" the episode. It starts from 27min. It's perfect BUT no subtitle at all. If I try to start again from the begin, I get subtitles on the first seconds, if I skip 2min, 30min ect, no subtitle ever . So I try to look 5min without skip anything from the begin and after 2min36, subtitles desapears... and I don't get it anymore. It's crazy I never get this problem with old version. Thank you in advance to fix this new issue Regards
  19. I am new to Emby, and I am having a reoccurring issue where my playback of a show (nightly local news) is pixilating and freezing. This has happened 2 nights in a row at nearly the same time during the recording. It is still currently recording while I am watching, and I have not gotten to live yet (35 minute show and freezing around 20 minutes). This also has happened at least 3 times in the week and half I have been using Emby (switched from Plex due to problems they have not fixed to playback during recording that has been going on for months). I have had a few successful playbacks during recording, but the wife gets quite frustrated when we cannot get through the news, hopefully you can feel my pain. We are using FireTv. However, I just tried to play last nights recording on my computer and it freezes in the same place. I am pasting a snippet of the log below, the errors just keep going. Could I have a setting wrong, or??? I am not even sure what to try. I can't really seem to find a definitive guide on configuring my system. Which is a Synology DS918+ and is up to date, I have tons of storage (only using 10%), but I have not added any m.2 cache to the system (it is stock other than expanded hd space). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated (I have searched and can't find any topics that seem to relate, so I hope it is something I can adjust on my end to fix it). My transcoding settings are basically the defaults, except I have change the thread count from Auto to 2. here is the log snippet: [segment @ 0x17fb3c0] Opening

  20. Hi With some episodes like this one: https://gofile.io/?c=NoX0w9 - It's really slow to read it, take 30 secondes before to start and if you move inside the movie, again, the timing take 15 / 30 secondes. Is it possible to avoid this waiting time ? Thank you in advance Regards
  21. Bit of a strange thing happening. Specials are organized in season 0 or season 00 folders. I don't know when the issue started but I have specials that play after each season is finished playing, even though they are set to display/play only in the season aired. For example: Stargate SG-1 The Ark of Truth(S00E07) and Continuum(S00E08) are both displayed in Season 10 as Episodes 21 and 22 (correctly) and not in any of the other seasons. Yet they play after the end of each of the 10 seasons. I had "old" nfo files for each and deleted/refreshed the metadata, completed a full scan of the libraries without any change. Checked a couple of other series, same problem. Have I got a setting wrong? or am I missing something? Is this a bug? This used to work as I would expect - Which is the special would play during the correct season and between the correct episodes. If the log is of any help I was testing this after 8pm Eastern 4/26/19. Thanks Stargate SG-1.S00E07.The Ark of Truth.nfo embyserver.txt
  22. Hello, I just started ripping my Blue-Ray discs and I tested one of the two I ripped but it freezes a minute into playing in the browser at the same place every time and about 30 minutes into playing on the Apple TV (this was after a reboot of the server). The file is .MKV and is 26.6 GB and after a reboot and a fresh install of EMBY server I was able to play it all the way through, however another movie that is ~36 GB I press play and it will play for a few seconds and then stop and say "Opps, something when wrong. Document not found on stack." Although, when it is on the video menu the sound will start to play through the movie with no video. When I play that same video in the browser it will play for a few seconds longer. I am running EMBY Server on FreeNAS-11.2-U5 and I have 64 GB of ECC Ram. I don't have any problem playing the ripped DVDs. Thanks in advance for any help. Chad
  23. I just purchased Gran Torino (2008) on blu ray, and ripped the movie to my server as a .mkv file using MakeMKV. The file plays without issue on VLC media player. When I try to play the movie on Emby, however, the server freezes up. I originally tried playing the movie on the Roku app (beta version and regular), and the Retrieving purple bar would fill about 1/3 of the way and then just hang forever (I let it go about 5 minutes). So I thought it might be the Emby Roku app, so I tried again with the Chrome browser web app, and the say thing happened. Only instead of the purple bar, the web app has a spinning circle that just goes on and on. I thought there might be something wrong with the file, so I deleted the entire folder, emptied the recycle bin, and rebooted the computer. Then ripped the file again. No difference. This is the only movie that has this problem. Others play just fine. My computer is running Windows 7. Log Jeflatt 6-6-2019.txt
  24. Hello folks, Need a little help with issues on video playback. I'm running Emby on Windows 10 with the client/server on the same machine. Emby version with the default installation and I run it on Chrome. I'm using the standard Windows paths (not UNC) for file access. I have some videos that were ripped at 29.97fps and they stream fine to my TV (via chromecast) and play fine locally with the Emby client. Unfortunately the quality of the rips are bad so I found some replacements that have good video quality that play at 25fps. Unfortunately these are choppy when I stream them to my TV. They're even worse when I try to play them locally on my laptop with the Emby client. They're fine playing them locally with VLC. I don't have anything else installed at the moment that I can test streaming. I could re-install Plex to test streaming if needed or maybe the VideoCast extension I used to have installed for Chrome. I'm not sure what's going on or what I need to look at in my Emby config. Maybe it's not even the framerate that's the issue but something else? I have attached the media info of both files. I can attach the logs if needed. I read another post that said if the client and server were on the same machine then UNC isn't needed and to be honest I haven't had this issue before so it's not like this is a chronic issue with most of my videos. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  25. HI Long time user, first time poster. First off I love Emby and have been using it for many years but I've had one bug that I just can't figure out. Whenever we use the shuffle feature for a TV series the first episode will play perfect and the remaining episodes will be faded. It looks as though the next episode overlay is always on. I've turned off themes and the next episode info option but still the issue remains.
