  1. Hi there, This report is meant as a »please note« notice to the emby developers. TL/DR: Internal text subtitles in large videos cause transmission time-outs when transcoding. In long: Setting: I try to play back a movie on my Sony smart tv using DLNA. I select a film that has a large filesize and embedded text subtitles that need to be burnt in during a transcode step. Symptom: My tv starts a »processing« animation and after some time i get a »failed to connect« message. Playback never starts. All logs look OK. The transcoding log shows a successful transcode start that is either successfully finished or aborted later. (Success or not doesn’t matter) What happens without indication: ffmpeg processes text subtitles in a two step way: First extract the subtitle stream from the video, then burn in/transcode. The culprit is the first step, which happens fully transparent and without any notice in the ffmpeg log. To extract a subtitle stream, the whole file has to be read once. When a transcode starts, the following things happen: emby starts ffmpeg to transcode a video ffmpeg reads the whole file once to extract the subtitle track that it will burn in ffmpeg reads the file again, this time transcoding. Let’s do an example calculation based on this observation: Assume Alice has ripped a movie on a Bluray she owns to her hard disk. The video file is about 20GB in size. She muxes text subtitles into the video file. (She OCRs a PGM forced subtitle stream found on the disc or downloads a free one.) The movie is stored on a new SATA SSD disk that can read at a rate of about 500 MB/s. When a transcode is requested for that file, the subtitle extraction is done by ffmpeg in 20000MB/(500MB/s) = 40 seconds. So it takes ffmpeg 40 seconds to extract the subtitle track, which means that the actual transcoding start and video delivery is delayed by that time. This time frame should be enough to time-out many DLNA clients. Things get worse when the read bandwidth is lower. On a USB2 connection (40MB/s), every file greater than 2.4GB[*] will have an initial delay of over one minute. [*]: when it has text subtitles and transcoding with subtitle burn in is required. How to reproduce: Take a large video (preferably >10 GB), some text subtitles and mux both into an MKV container. Flush your disc cache, so that ffmpeg has to actually read it from disk. Let it transcode by ffmpeg. Watch the process hanging right before the actual transcode starts for several seconds. Observe high disc activity during this »hang«. As long as this is not fixed by ffmpeg, the only possible work around is to not use ffmpeg for transcoding under this circumstances… A proper fix from ffmpeg side would be parsing the text subtitles in parallel to the transcode and not delay the start. At the current state transcoding using emby server will work for many users and most files, but large files with text subtitles will cause issues every now and then. I assume most users will blame the specific emby app or platform used instead of ffmpeg… Proposed »fix«: Put a note about this external issue into the wiki. Some reference links to ffmpeg bug reports regarding this issue: https://trac.ffmpeg.org/ticket/4499 (»Parse internal subtitles in realtime«, marked as duplicate of bug…) https://trac.ffmpeg.org/ticket/2067 (»Support subtitles in libavfilter so seek is honored for subtitles filters (like hardsubbing)«)
  2. Sometime in the past week playing video files that are transcoded stopped working in the Android app for me. I was using the Beta, but have also uninstalled and tried the release version, both behave the same. If I direct stream, it plays, but when I changed the bitrate, it will just stay paused with a black screen. Everything seems fine on the server side (it transcodes the entire video, don't see any issues there) but it will not play. I have tried a few different devices with the same result. Using the chrome browser on those devices or on a PC works as expected. I have attached the logs from the Android client, server, and transcode logs. I replaced the server external IP with {SERVER_EXTERNAL_IP). One thing that was interesting to me was that the Android client seemed to try using the server's external IP even though it is connected via WiFi. I am guessing that is the problem, but don't know why it is doing it. Android_App_Log.log Server_Log.txt Transcode_Log.txt

    Question about direct play

    Hi, If i'm on the same LAN and have access to the same folders that Emby has, why do my files not direct play when I watch them via the browser Also, how do i check that Emby for WMC is playing direct play? Emby server is running in a docker on unRaid. thanks Griz
  4. Unraid Server: v6.2.4 Emby Server: v3.1.2 Fire TV Box: v5.2.4.0 Fire TV App: v1.3.12a Can't stream live tv to fire tv's that use transcoding. Live tv (transcoded) in browser - works fine Live tv (transcoded) on iOS app - works fine Remote streaming live tv (transcoded) in browser - works fine Remote streaming live tv (transcoded) on iOS app - works fine I think the issue is related to the new version of ffmpeg as discussed in the following thread: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/43135-android-apps-will-not-play-anything-that-needs-transcoded-audio/ Suggestion provided by Luke was to roll back the ffmpeg version in the Transcoding menu, however, that option isn't visible. Another thread mentioned the ffmpeg path was only available on specific platforms. Would be great if there was a quick fix to get this working remotely again quickly while I'm away from home. Thanks guys!

    Trouble Playing Transcoded Content

    Greetings All, First off, I would like to commend the group for the great support that is consistently provided to this forum. Having spent some time searching on the issue I'm experiencing I've been wowed by just how much the community gives back to those in need of assistance. The ongoing efforts for Emby, Emby for Roku, Blue Neon Night are just fantastic. Keep up the great work and Kudos. Secondly, I've noticed a degradation in playable content over time when trying to play media via Emby for Roku. The common thread appears to be content that is not available for DirectPlay and requires transcoding which I seem to be requiring more of as time goes on. The transcoding is required due to my inability to play 5.1 content and need to remux the stream down to 2.1 as I do not have a device do the work for me. My current setup is a Roku 2 4210X running the latest firmware (7.5.0 b4099-04 at the time of writing) with Emby services provided via the FreeNAS plugin updated to the current plugin release (3.1.0 at the time of writing). I've attempted to play the transcoded content via both the release and beta versions of the Emby for Roku App, as well as the Blue Neon Night app and appear to have the same trouble across all three. I've also upped the Video Quality setting to 30Mbps to rule out any issues related to that (if any). This didn't appear to have any effect. Tailing the server log, I can observe the Roku requesting the .m3u8 link and Emby responding with a 200. A short while later the Roku times out and returns to the movie menu (timeout confirmed by Blue Neon Night debug logs). It appears that transcoding doesn't happen here as there are no logs to support that FFMpeg is doing any work, which is interesting as I initially thought there might be a resource issue with FreeNAS. I've confirmed that the .m3u8 links are valid and playable via VLC. Playing the content here does start the transcode; this appear to be working as expected here. Sorry for the lengthy read! If there's anything else I can provide or try, let me know. I really don't know what else to do in order to play this content outside of purchasing a receiver to convert 5.1 to PCM Stereo.
  6. I was doing an (unrelated) test of 24p content on my television, via a number of apps, plus via a laptop and on the TV's own media player. In the process I discovered that Emby was showing an extremely-degraded image compared to everything else! It appeared to be transcoding the source video, and really screwing it up in the process. Have a look at this photo of the screen: http://s378.photobucket.com/user/wintrmute/media/Hisense%2024fps%20judder/DSCF0172_zpsvmslmofj.jpg.html From there, click the link back to the album that its part of, and look at the other photos. (Ignore the ones testing motion interpolation) See how in the Emby photo, my "/u/wint_rmute" signature is all blurred? And how the rectangles have gained dark borders? And that the pattern of rectangles is uneven? What's going on with this? The source video is 1080p 24Hz x264 and everything else can play it directly.
  7. Hey all, so for some reason Emby (Kodi) isn't direct playing/streaming my blu-ray folders and is transcoding them instead. I've also tried the Windows Emby Theater app, which won't play blu-ray's at all (it just hangs at the spinner after selecting to play for 1 minute), but will play all of my other files. I've attached the ffmpeg log and a section of the server log, however before I attach the full server/kodi logs, is there anything I need to censor? I'm seeing api keys for the websocket, my remote address, etc... 2016-12-01 13:13:23.2336 Info Main: Emby Command line: /usr/lib/emby-server/bin/MediaBrowser.Server.Mono.exe -programdata /var/lib/emby-server -ffmpeg /usr/bin/ffmpeg -ffprobe /usr/bin/ffprobe -restartpath /usr/lib/emby-server/restart.sh Operating system: Unix Processor count: 4 64-Bit OS: True 64-Bit Process: True Program data path: /var/lib/emby-server Mono: 4.6.2 (Stable Mon Nov 28 20:21:32 UTC 2016) Application Path: /usr/lib/emby-server/bin/MediaBrowser.Server.Mono.exe 2016-12-01 13:13:23.6228 Info App: Application version: 3.0.8500.0 ... 2016-12-01 13:14:07.6677 Debug App: Starting transcoding because currentTranscodingIndex=null 2016-12-01 13:14:07.7138 Info App: /usr/bin/ffmpeg -i file:"/media/movies/Blu-ray/Batman Begins (2005)/BDMV/STREAM/00000.m2ts" -map_metadata -1 -threads 0 -map 0:0 -map 0:2 -map -0:s -codec:v:0 libx264 -pix_fmt yuv420p -preset superfast -crf 23 -tune zerolatency -b:v 22651421 -maxrate 22651421 -bufsize 45302842 -vsync -1 -force_key_frames "expr:gte(t,n_forced*3)" -flags -global_header -copyts -codec:a:0 ac3 -ac 6 -ab 384000 -af "adelay=1,aresample=async=1" -max_delay 5000000 -avoid_negative_ts disabled -start_at_zero -hls_time 3 -start_number 0 -hls_list_size 0 -y "/var/lib/emby-server/transcoding-temp/0c9eb6747e297090e06b16b942d4f3c4.m3u8" 2016-12-01 13:14:10.0408 Info App: returning /var/lib/emby-server/transcoding-temp/0c9eb6747e297090e06b16b942d4f3c40.ts ffmpeg-transcode-4d668284-f2cd-4f7d-a3b0-d0d953c8d308.txt

    HDHomeRun EXTEND transcoding profiles

    I have three general classes of devices I run Emby on: ​-Windows PCs, they would prefer MPEG2 -Amlogic S905/X, they would prefer MPEG4 "heavy" "mobile" -Surface 2 & smartphones, they would prefer MPEG4 "mobile" There's two situations: 1) Live TV: I assume Emby can request a specific profile from the HDHomeRun EXTEND and I also assume this isn't being done. If it is being done, then I get the impression it is broken because the default profile set in each EXTEND impacts the streams that are played from it. If it isn't automatically figuring this out, I'd like to be able to set it in Emby Server where Emby Theater requests MPEG2 and everything else gets MPEG4 "mobile." Is this possible now? It is possible to add? Is it something that will be added? 2) Recordings: This is where things get iffy because Emby Server itself isn't the destination where the video will be consumed. I think the best solution is to be able to select a transcoding profile on a per recording or series basis. For example, I know some series only get watched on the Windows computers so it would recorded as MPEG2. I know series may be watched on tablets or Amlogic boxes so it would be recorded as MPEG2 "mobile." Then there is sports events of all kinds need to be recorded as MPEG2 or MPEG4 "heavy" because MPEG4 "mobile" looks like crap. Is this possible now? It is possible to add? Is it something that will be added? HDHomeRun EXTEND are powerful little devices but options in Emby appear to prevent them from being used optimally. Edit: Apparently MPEG4 "heavy" is too much for the Amlogic 905/X devices. Here is what MPC-HC got off the recording: Video: MPEG4 Video (H264) 1920x1080 29.97fps [V: h264 high L4.0, yuv420p, 1920x1080] Audio: Dolby AC3 48000Hz stereo 384kbps [A: English [eng] (ac3, 48000 Hz, stereo, 384 kb/s)] Here's an MPEG4 "mobile": Video: MPEG4 Video (H264) 1280x720 29.97fps [V: h264 high L4.0, yuv420p, 1280x720] Audio: Dolby AC3 48000Hz 6ch 448kbps [A: English [eng] (ac3, 48000 Hz, 5.1, 448 kb/s)] That is of a football game which would definitely be at least 1080i. It appears "heavy" doesn't change resolution where "mobile" does.
  9. Its the strangest thing, but one TV show on my system always transcodes when launched thru Emby for WMC on any of my systems. I see the following in the logs when this happens: 2016-11-10 20:30:18.1159 Error ServerManager: SessionWebSocketListener failed processing WebSocket message Context *** Error Report *** Version: Command line: C:\Users\svcs\AppData\Roaming\Emby-Server\System\MediaBrowser.ServerApplication.exe Operating system: Microsoft Windows NT 6.2.9200.0 64-Bit OS: True 64-Bit Process: True Processor count: 4 Program data path: C:\Users\svcs\AppData\Roaming\Emby-Server Application Path: C:\Users\svcs\AppData\Roaming\Emby-Server\System\MediaBrowser.ServerApplication.exe Value cannot be null.

Other shows in the same HDD/share play back correctly, so its not a path issue, and other MKV files play back properly. It just seems to happen on any of the video files in my season 01 folder of a show on my NAS. Any ideas? Emby Server Version beta Emby for WMC Version 3.0.307.0
  10. I have multiple video files that used to direct play or direct stream just fine and now it is attempting to transcode these videos and seems to not even be able to start the transcoding. Emby log Points to a stream.mkv that isn't being created. Regardless I don't want transcoding. I don't understand why these videos that were once flagged as supported for direct play are now saying unsupported. This issue seems to coincide with a recent server update. I have attached my server log, ffmpeg-directstream log, and the media info for one of the video files no longer playing. Any help in getting this sorted out would be great. server-63613652966.txt ffmpeg-directstream-2f2038d1-56e3-4dc6-a807-44d62464b0f8.txt Mission - Impossible - mediainfo.txt
  11. Hey, I have read several threads, but I'm still trying to understand why I have the issues I do with streaming h264 video with HD audio in an mkv container. My server: A6-based lxc container with lots of BR Rips (mux to mkv, so they're >30GB), but I have issues with typical 10GB h264/mkv files as well. My issue is streaming to the Shield TV and I think it's caused by the audio format. What is puzzling is that either my system is so slow that just transcoding the audio brings it to its knees (avg 17 fps, so it's unwatchable), or emby is transcoding the entire video stream when it only needs to transcode the audio. Transcode Log to Shield TV Emby App (Beta) I even tried VLC on the shield through DLNA, and it did the same thing, pegged the CPU at 100% and was unwatchable. According to the VLC DLNA parameters it should announce that it can play anything, but that's obviously not what happened. The transcode log from this doesn't seem to announce the player's capabilities like the Emby App did: Transcode Log to VLC DLNA I get that bitstreaming doesn't work correctly, but it should be a relatively light load to transcode these audio streams. I am struggling to decode these logs, but it appears that it's transcoding the entire video stream vice just audio. Thanks
  12. Hello there Emby Team, Using my HDHomerun Extend, the option to "Automatically convert recordings to a streaming friendly format" used with the option "Preserve original audio when converting recordings (when possible)" creates a file, either mp4 or mkv, with the original ac3 (dolby digital) audio track. This file usually needs transcoding if sending to a player without ac3 capabilities. What I'm proposing is what I used to do for my AppleTV/iOS files. Basically have two audio tracks in the file. One being a converted aac 2-channel track as well as the original ac3 track from the HDHomerun. That way we can maybe avoid some transcoding as the server would choose which audio track to play based on the output capabilities? If ac3 capable, choose the ac3 track, if not ac3 compatible like on web browsers, ios and some players, choose the 2-ch aac track. Does this sound like a possible feature? Thanks for your time. Marc

    NowTV (Black) Playback Corruption.

    I'm experiencing playback corruption on a number of files, including some I have encoded myself using Handbrake on Windows 7 64bit. Each file has certain points where the display goes green, patterened, pixelated or combination of all of them. I have previously managed to watch episodes without any issues but unfortunately can't report on server/app versions for when it worked. All affected files contain the original audio tracks, in AC3, which is transcoded to MP3 during playback. The NowTV box is the black version, a year old in November. Tested running the 2.24 using the zip from git (https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby.Roku/commit/0532b60bcf527ee28514b2824216145d7e5650fc#diff-5675ec54b0bef0ab64130c1e50db42de) and tried against latest snapshot (https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby.Roku/commit/055226cec08e20aba5a1c5bab3ed329687ac7843) Server side, tested using 3.0.6070 and 3.1.127, using both ffmpeg 20160410 included in package and 20160827 from ffmpeg site. All files playback flawlessly in VLC (numerous versions up to current stable) and on 1st gen WD Elements Play 2TB. Using Emby via DLNA they work fine on both PS4 (Video copy, audio transcoded to aac) and Sony BDV-E780W bluray (Audio copy, h264 (native) > mpeg2video (native)). As such, I don't think its a problem with the file itself. One on file I have used ffmpeg to replace the audio with aac stereo as a test and it utilises DirectPlay and works fine. I'm going to do a little more digging before posting more logs, but here are the file details and transcode logs from ffmpeg 20160410 and 20160827 in case anyone can see something obvious. Will test first to see if reverting mp3 codec back to aac in capabilities.brs, causing it to reproduce output used for PS4, has a positive effect.

  14. Hi Guys, New migration of Emby server to Windows 10 with database intact. Currently running Server is running fine, library is complete. Having an issue when trying to transcode anything either via the Web Client or Android Client -- 'There was an error playing the video' By the looks of the log entries - it's having an issue when invoking ffmpeg 2016-08-29 23:10:00.6227 Error App: Error starting ffmpeg ... Cannot start process because a file name has not been provided. Attaching server and transcoding logs for review. NOTE: Playing direct files via WMC is working fine. server_ffmpeg_20160829.zip
  15. Hi everyone, Running Emby 2.57 and Server 3.1.6014.2369 and for some reason one or the other the setup has decided today that I *Must* transcode everything I try to play through it. I have the User profile transcode options to off as my home network has enough horsepower to deal with anything so I just want direct streams to be played in Potplayer. However good old Media Brower Theatre/Emby Classic plays the file directly just like it should be doing and all is well. Can we just has a big button to turn off transcoding for those that have no need for it? Having a dig through the logs, it's reporting the user agent for Daum Potplayer but also at times Winamp (which is not installed) do I need to make a profile to force direct play for Potplayer now? The movies are being listed as DirectPlay=True in the logs so why the sudden obsession with transcoding? Log attached for anyone who wants a read. server-63606729600.txt
  16. Now that hardware acceleration is widely used, I need to suggest that inside user configuration can give permissions to HW or SW encoding separately. Why? Maybe I want to allow only HW encoding because I don't want CPU spikes everywhere... Or maybe somebody only desire SW encodings because sees more quality in it...

    Sync to folder - questions

    I've been testing the Sync option as a way to create android friendly versions of my 1080-MKV files instead of transcoding and I have some questions. 1. I installed the folder sync plugin and added a local directory as the target. The media was converted to an mp4 file but never moved from the AppData\Roaming\Emby-Server\sync\uuid\ folder that was created. Should this have happened automatically? 2. Is there a way to monitor which movies have been synced? 3. Is there a way to clean up syncd movies to remove old ones? 4. Even when I had sync a movie to an mp4 file and then tried to play it back via the web client the server logs showed it still used the mkv one, is this the correct action? Thanks Brian
  18. Basically, I just want a mini PC that doesn't use a lot of power to be able to only run an emby server, with an external HDD plugged into it. I'm relatively intermediate with computer stuff, and was looking into the Raspberry Pi, but it doesn't look like that will end up working for me due to transcoding problems. Does anyone have a setup for this? I literally just want a low power pc running 24/7 with all my media, so that i can stream it to various devices. Any help would be awesome. Thanks, all!
  19. So this feature is really nice. It helps playback start immediately. I am going to setup my mother and aunt on this for live TV but it poses one issue which keeps me from having them buy the lifetime. CPU power. Is there any change to integrate a feature for selecting quality on convert on the fly to a lower resolution so ffmpeg does not eat so much CPU power. Or is this a setting that can be changed in a file somewhere?
  20. Hy, I have been using Emby for the second day now. I have only one complaint that it has too many options in the transcoding options. I want to give 5 total options, but cannot figure out how to edit this. - Direct - 1080p - 720p - 480p - 360p (MB will be tested depending on the CPU usage) The choices are way to many and some people just like to see 1 name instead of 10 different MB options on a single resolution. Can some one guide me on how to change it? Super thanks, PV

    Transcoding recorded OTA

    I have been running for quite some time now with no issues but it seems, maybe since the last update, that everything that is DVRd via my OTA is being transcoded all of a sudden. Sonarr and movies still play Direct, just things that I DVR. I'm running FreeNAS V3.0.5913.0 and the client is Android TV 1.1.76g. I'm using the built in DVR system. I have attached a transcode log and the server log. Thank you! server-63596793600.txt transcode-a4c3b34d-1e28-rf34-8b05-c9be974babe1.txt
  22. HI Sorry if this has already been answered but I couldn't find it. I am playing HEVC with 5.1 files to A Fire stick. Only the rear audio channels are going to my telly. How to I force it to transcode to stereo? In http://localhost:8096/web/encodingsettings.html/Playback/Transcoding I dont see anything about audio except boost when downmixing. Or anywhere else. thanks remainz I am just coming to Emby because it can do HEVC on a home server. UG Typo in title sorry. edit wont let me fix the title

    Emby Sync

    How can I tell if sync is streaming from the cloud instead of the server? I've been playing around with the sync option and have sync'd several videos to the Google cloud drive. When I play them remotely I cant tell from the dashboard which source its streaming from. Whats the best way to see if this feature is working?
  24. My specific issue lies with two devices in my home: Sony BDP-S390 and BDP-S5100. Long story short, there doesn't appear to be an acceptable/reliable way to differentiate these two devices using HTTP Headers or DMR responses. Therefore, they end up using the same DLNA profile in Emby. I have 100% reliable playback on the 5100 with disk backups to mkv done with makemkv (DVD backup, MKV, mpeg2video, AC3). BUT, the 390 refuses to play any mkv I have thrown at it. Any suggestions for getting mkv's to transcode to one device while direct playing them to another? Any possibility of doing direct profile assignment for just such an issue? Perhaps an option within the profile to put an IP, similar to how we can designate a user to always use a profile? Not entirely relevant to the questions above, but I'm attaching my current working profile for the 5100, which the 390 uses as well, with failing mkvs on the 390. Sony Blu-ray Player 5100 test.xml
  25. Hello. I just need to know if it is normal when transcoding is happening (DTS inside movie), that time skip (change to a specific point in time) hangs playback and tops CPU % usage. From what I tested...it seemed slow, not frozen, but veeeery slow, indeed.
