  1. 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: 3.1.215.0 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 3.1.215.0 beta Emby for WMC Version 3.0.307.0
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Hi Guys, New migration of Emby server to Windows 10 with database intact. Currently running 3.1.127.0 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
  6. 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
  7. Is it possible to create another panel in Dashboard, where we could monitor transcodings in progress? Would be very helpful to understand whether is your Emby transcoding, for which media, for which reason (if possible), and for which user. Maybe some CPU % data, threads in use, etc...etc...
  8. 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...

    ANSWERED 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
  10. 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!
  11. 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?

    Limit transcode options

    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
  13. Evening all, I'm basically looking for an answer to the title - Direct play XviD and transcode DivX. Possible? It seems I'm only allowed to specify "mpeg4" in the DLNA profiles so my server has to unnecessarily transcode Xvid videos. If this isn't possible, could I request that this be something to consider in a future release? I'm running version 3.0.5821.0 on Windows. Thanks very much!

    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
  15. 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.

    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?
  17. sorry for the NOOB question. im looking into setting up emby to play with, and was wondering if i can enter my own ffmpeg encode string for transcoding to myself when im connecting from an external ip? ive searched this forum, and the wiki, and can only find where says to set max bitrate, but ive found that low bitrate encodes might require other settings to have an enjoyable playback experience. many thanks in advance, Dam0

    Roku Playback Issue

    Hi, I installed this a few hours ago on my MacBook Pro and Roku 1. The Roku 1 connects to and sees all the media in my folder, even creating thumbnails from the media. But once I press Play, the blue "retrieving" bar gets just under half way across and freezes. It stays like that for a minute or two, then returns to the previous screen. A transcode log is created, but no transcodes are created in the "transcoding-temp" folder. I've tried AVIs, MOVs & MP4s using an h264 or MP4 codec. Please note that if there's a preferred codec / wrapper combo that would make streaming easier or more efficient, please let me know as I would have no problem transcoding my files as needed to accommodate the process. As instructed, I'm attaching the server log and transcode log. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Chaz server-63588030976.txt transcode-d0856d29-1297-4f13-8946-1b69116bbd0e.txt
  19. I have two files which for test purposes I have encoded using FFMPEG: ffmpeg -t 10 -i bunny.mp4 -map_metadata -1 -codec:v libx264 -profile:v high -level 4.0 -b:v 1000k -c:a aac -b:a 128k -ac 2 Bunny1.mkv ffmpeg -t 10 -i bunny.mp4 -map_metadata -1 -codec:v libx264 -profile:v high -level 4.0 -b:v 1000k -c:a aac -b:a 128k -ac 2 Bunny2.mp4 Bunny1.mkv seems to require transcoding to playback, where as Bunny2.mp4 does not. I understand there might be some sort of issue with Emby on the AFTVS and MKVs (which is not an issue with Kodi on the AFTVS). I don't understand why the video would be re-transcoding when transcoding for the stick. Wouldn't it make sense for the Video (and Audio) streams to be copied by ffmpeg (with only the container format being changed)? If we could just change the container format the CPU overhead for the emby server would be MUCH lower. I'm guessing the answer might be that we need some control over keyframes to allow for HLS streaming, but if direct playback of the MP4 is possible, is it not possible to use this container format and not use HLS streaming? The AFTV is set to 40mbps and to play via VLC. I see Trans/I for Bunny1.mkv and Direct/I for Bunny2.mp4 Below is some more info that might be helpful...

  20. Hi, i did an interesting test tonight. When playing an mp4 (1280x720) on my android, it runs nice and smooth and no transcoding takes place. If i try to run the exact same movie on my desktop via firefox, it starts jumping and not play smoothing. I see that the transcode folder has an webm file while playing in the browser but not when playin on the android. REducing the bitrate in the web browser doesn't help. Why does Emby think it needs to transcode in web client (21" screen on pentium i5 3Ghz) and not in android (samsung galaxy 10"). THe server is install on DELL POweredge (quite old with pentium 4 2.8 Ghz and 0.5 GB ECC RAM). Any thoughts on possible reasons and what I can do to stop transcoding when not necessary?

    Custom DLNA Profile

    All, I have 90%of my movie collection in Video_TS folders which contain all of the vob, bup, and ifo files (the other 10% is in MKV, avi, or MP4). They play great on the emby mobile apps, and on the web, but they are not playing on my samsung TV's, the vobs that is. Therefore i think what i have to do is create a custom DLNA profile for my tv's, correct me if im wrong. I tried to do this for my upstairs samsung tv, but i don't even know where to begin, i tried a couple of things, but to no avail. Can someone help me get started setting up a profile that will transcode my video_ts folders/vobs to mkv or another compatible container. Thank you in advance for any guidance you may give me.
  22. App Description: Server Don't know the situation in other countries, but most videos in my collection have all their subs inside the e.g. mkv. Thanks to the help from @@Luke and @@ebr I finally got a clue that in Emby external subs are much more handy than the internal because they don't need to be extracted before playback starting. I'm referring to this two threads: http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/21988-default-to-external-subtitle/ http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/23769-problem-with-videos-with-subtitle/ The problem: Most internal forced subs are also flagged as default. So even when the user exports internal subs, Emby still prefers the internal one flagged default and forced and the Auto subtitle settings in preferences become obsolete. This leads again to the long period until the movie starts because of the sub extracting process. Only but very long and uncomfortable solution would be remuxing all movies with forced subs (for me around 400, pretty sure a lot people have also a big amount of movies like that). Request: Is a setting possible to prefer external over internal subs or a switch to ignore internal subs if external is present? The Goal: Using files with exported subs without remux them all or manually choose when the stream already runs, because other tools handle internal subs well and like this we have a maximum compability for different usages of the files.

    May be transcode problem but ...

    Hi, installed Emby last night as I want to replace Plex (don't like closed source). Quite impressed up to now although still haven't managed to see one film yet. Can't see film in web client or android client, both saying "There was an error playing the video.".Music plays correctly. Emby Version 3.0.5781.0 with ffmpeg version 0.8.17-6:0.8.17-1 (basically a fully updated Debian Wheezy to a few minutes ago) Now, this I think it's a transcode problem as I see "Unrecognized option 'codec:v:0'" in the transcode log (see below). One thing that I did like of Plex is the "Direct streaming" option which i think Emby doesn't have. It tries to transcode even videos that are not transcoded on Plex (I have Plex also running on the same machine). Am i correct in thinking that there is no direct streaming with Emby? Thanks Antonio TRANSCODE LOG (also attached)

  24. What can I say here... well its great the menus are clean and simple, in line with the fire TV sticks own so users are at home straight away Its fast and responsive and looks good on the screen But it is limited to 3GPP (.3gp) and MPEG-4 (.mp4) (video anyway) (source - https://developer.am...specifications) Any other video needs to be transcoded and when you want to watch 1080p video with 7.1 sound not even my server can do it just maxs out the CPU My server is a Fujitsu Primergy MX130 S2 2 CPU x 2.99 Ghz 32GB of RAM If you have android TV or the fire TV (not stick) then you can install VLC and Emby can use it to play other media with out the need to transcode, I am told this works wonderfully (not yet seen it first hand) But at the moment no VLC for fire TV stick so no real use for this app its such a shame as the app is great and I was about to buy a Fire TV stick for all my rooms and replace my old Windows 7 Media Centre hosts If any one knows of a way around this I would grateful for the information and would update this straight away
  25. How do I configure Emby Server and Clients on Windows to give same quality playback as when playing direct from the filesytem? On our laptops we generally get better quality driving Windows Explorer to \\emby-server\media\show.mkv (or .flv or ...) and playing with VLC than we do pointing a browser (Firefox, Chrome) at http://emby-server:8096/. While playing a show in browser clicking the cog icon at top right sometimes shows "Direct" as a playback option and sometimes not. Sometimes the max rate is "720p - 10 Mbps" and sometimes "720p - 8 Mbps". (Our tv is 720p so we don't usually store videos of greater resolution). Sometimes even playing a 480p video in through Emby is noticeably more grainy than VLC direct (played minutes apart, with no difference in ambient network conditions). The server is 100mbit wired ethernet to the wifi router. while the clients are WiFi (mixed 11/54Mbps). So it's not a great network, but still shouldn't Emby at least be able to match VLC? And if not, how to add an additional "play" button to launch VLC via "file://emby-server/media/show.mkv" file association?
