  1. embyserver.txt Hey guys. Using Emby for almost 3+ years now. Used emby in all kinds of scenarios and devices. Facing this weird issue suddenly. No work around. Videos don't play. They do play randomly but most of the times they don't play. Please find attached the server logs for the same. I am using windows pc as server and on the same internal server I am trying to play videos on my Android TV (MI). Attached is the server log file. Please help.
  2. We have a couple of Samsung TVs in the house, which are not very "smart" out of the box. To solve that problem we have installed nVidia Shield devices for each of these TVs. This solved the problems with the built in functionality. Streaming apps are working perfectly now ... with the exception of Emby. The problem is that the Emby client for Android TV cannot manage a server that is in the Sleep State. I'm respectfully requesting for a feature that can manage the sleep/wake state of the Emby Server (in my case the host is Windows 10). This can be done by: - Sending a WOL magic packet to the server when a client requests a video to be streamed (and the server is in the sleep state). - Keeping the server awake during streaming. Really love the Emby server, as it provides many benefits over its competitors, like Plex, but the absence of this feature really limits its usability in the Android TV space.
  3. please pardon the addition to a thread 18months old, but I am not sure where to add vs opening a new ticket. food for thought, only. not new thread worthy, imo. I still see no way to switch players and it would be handy. if I have two or three players installed on the shield, I am defaulted one. I have yet to see how to select the player. maybe I am missing it. regardless, exoplayer has documented issues evidenced in both plex/emby, e.g., stuttering playing 480 videos for me on the shield. I have read some have issues with 1080 as well using exoplayer. whatever what some think of exoplayer, the reason this has come up to the point I add to the forum is that I just noticed some pixelation issues in br2049 at about 5min, the moving clouds after pan up from car, that do not happen when the video played straight from thumb drive connected to the tv. both are 4k hdr, yet exo player not getting it done vs the player included in the sony. I am experimenting with mx and vlc, but so far not thrilled with having to give up one thing for another. e.g., I cannot switch if I have a problem with one player with whatever video. no player is perfect, so using players for their optimum case is ideal which hints having the option to choose which player for the video of choice. this is feedback; I am not looking for possible solutions to my exo player issues. I have beaten it to death trying to solve the problems I get with old 480 videos of which there is no bluray replacement(s). some blame nvidia as well, but I have the same issues on roku ultra. I say again, emby is a step up from plex. it is great to have options... Thank you. EDIT: I neglected to mention the aforementioned issues are not network related.
  4. Hello, I'm new to emby and very pleased to have found it. But on Android TV there is an issue when adding item to playlist. The buttons to validate the add or cancel are hidden. After test I know that add button is at left side. Nice to correct this. Thank you, Arsounet
  5. Problem: Since the latest Emby Server Windows 10 update a few days ago, I have on all my Nvidia Shield devices no user selection screen anymore. The only options are "manual", "connect" or "server change". So every user have to do a manual login with password, altough the user account are set that no password is required on local network. My setup: Local network with a Windows 10 server running Emby Server ( Four Nvidia Shields in the same network connected to this server, having the Emby Anroid TV app installed (2.0.48g registered). User setup and settings: Multiple users that in the local network are visible users (visible tiles on user selection screen) and no password is required to access the Emby server in the local network. Behaviour before the latest Server update: Started the Emby app on Shield and user selection screen showed up, the user selected his user tile and got immediate access to the libraries (no password required). What I have tried to fix:: - Deinstalled Emby Android TV app on each Shield, reinstalled, unfortunately issue remains - Checked if this error can be replicated by accessing the server by a browser. Here it does work as it should, it shows a user selection screen with tiles you click on one and you get immediate access. That means this issue could be App specific, however Android App hasn't been updated since weeks and the only update that happened the last few days has been the Server update which and the timing matches with the first appearance of my issue. Could you please have a look at it. Thanks.
  6. EDIT To clear things up: The title of my post is the feature request itself, while the bulleted content is one proposed solution that I’ve come up with to achieve it. It doesn’t have to be “solved” that way. Seeing as how many Emby users value customization, a different proposition could be the following. Allow users to chose navigation styles on all clients by giving the option to utilize a navigation drawer (like the web app already has). The point of this request is to accomplish exactly what the title says because, at the moment, different clients offer exclusive, different options that can lead to discrepancies described later in the thread. END OF EDIT ————————————————————— In order to streamline, modernize, and overall enhance library navigation through all of the clients, I propose the following changes: Completely remove the "My Media" and "My Media (small)" options from the Home Screen personalization. Utilize the navigation drawer approach (as seen in the web app) to display all of the library links. Examples of apps and services that utilize this approach on TV clients: All of these services offer an easy-to-use navigation menu for library links on the left-hand side of the screen. On the contrary, Emby's Android TV, Roku, etc apps lack this menu and rely exclusively on the users having "My Media" somewhere on their customized homescreen. As for mobile devices: In the Emby iOS app, there are multiple ways of getting to the same "Settings" menu; selecting the icon in the bottom-right or the profile picture in the top-right. As both of these icons are always on the screen at the same time, one of them is undeniably wasted space. Changing the bottom-right "Settings" icon to "Libraries" would replace the no-longer present "My Media" sections. This icon would slide up a small submenu of all libraries, or even a full-page list that blurs the background. Quick mockup: While customization - including the Home Screen section settings - is usually welcomed and praised, streamlining this particular aspect of the server across all clients should prove to be cleaner and more intuitive.
  7. I like to have My Media at the top of the home screen in the web client, but at the bottom of the home screen in the Android TV( ATV) app. This isn't currently possible, so is there any chance of having client-side options please. Thanks.
  8. Hi there, I noticed on my two different Android TV devices that Emby (latest public version) crashes while playing any song and going back to Emby's home screen. Let me know in case you need any specific data/proof how to deliver. K

    Movie theme videos

    Sorry if this has been more recently answered and I’m missing it. Brand new to Emby, grabbed a lifetime premier pass, loving it. My windows machine does the beautiful theme videos, from my searching I see the last time we had an answer to whether this would come to other platforms was over 6 months ago. Any chance this is being worked on for Android TV, would adore this on my shield app. Fantastic work here people, glad to have made the switch!

    Emby en android tv

    Buenas noches, quisiera saber porque, en mi smart android tv, aparece el mensaje, que la versión caduca el 15 de junio de 2020, y que debo desbloquearla o pasarme a emby premiere?
  11. Hi guys! I recently bought the new Chromcast with Google TV (Android TV) and it was a blast! The system fluidity speed is amazing. I just decided to give a better look at the app banner of Emby so I generated a APK launcher for the Emby Android TV app and I think it's a better fit in my opinion. I'm a graphic designer since 7 years now so if you need something else just ask!✌ PS: I have the Emby logo in vector, that's why. The app banner size is 1280px × 720px and the green color is the same as the Emby symbol logo. Cheers!
  12. Hi Team, can we get the fabulous option to prefer the logo over the cover in the detail view in the other apps, like we have it in Android TV App, too? Thx for considering

    Emby only as library

    Hi, i want to know if is it possible to use emby just to visualize my media in a prettier way on mi Android tv. I don't want to stream to another devices, just to watch my movies and tv shows directly from an hdd conected to my tv.
  14. When playing playing a movie though the Shield TV, it stopped twice, needing me to return to the main Shield menu and re-select Emby. When i looked at the logs I could see that it was transcoding the DTS audio, but could not see why. The same file pays without any transcoding though Plex. I have tried another movie with DTS audio (and a higher bitrate) and it played normally The Shield is output through a Yamaha YSP-2700 which supports DTS. I have attached the main Server log and the remux logs. My experience of the Emby app on Shield is that is any transcoding (even just audio) takes place, there is a tendency for the playback to stop unexpectedly. I can see no evidence of network congestion or heavy CPU usage on the media server (windows 10, i7-3770, 32 GB ram). As with the specific movie, I do not get these issues on Plex, which makes me think it is app specific. embyserver-63716803196.txt ffmpeg-remux-83f3c07a-0aa0-48ca-851b-b7cc53903a88_1.txt ffmpeg-remux-560a2e4e-5021-4bbf-9bf7-489d9224ccc4_1.txt ffmpeg-remux-187acee7-254e-440b-a9ba-e600d9ead170_1.txt
  15. Android TV does not remember the login info after closing app. I'm using an Nvidia Shield TV 2017
  16. I am having a recurring issue with the Android TV side of Emby, as detailed in the reddit post below. https://www.reddit.com/r/emby/comments/gn7gq1/server_unavailable_on_android_tv/ I am able to access emby from every other device I have, using web browser, android tablet, android phone and windows player. I got it working by force feeding it the IP but then this morning was doing the same thing. Any suggestions here would be appreciated, as I do like the layout and the QoL improvements that emby has over Plex. However if its a pain in the a every day to connect that is a deal breaker.
  17. I would like to have a feature than allow me to search on an library, only in that library and not in the others, or/and show's us in the general search bar on wish library the movies/tvshows/etc... is located (and turn it available on Android TV, Android, iOS, LG, Samsung, etc...) . "how it's search now" "Preview" after code in this e.g 1º %libraryname% is equal to French Library (Films - [FR] ) and in the 2º %libraryname% is equal to English Library (Movies - [EN] ) Kinds Regards
  18. Hi everyone, I would like to know if there was in the future update a way to filter the audio (Like e.g by english,french,spanish etc..) and the same for subtitles i can do that for container and etc.... but it doesn't show me for audio, subtitles. So i would to request it, as i can see on plex i can do that but not in emby. Not sure if this is related but don't forget to add this filter in all library type.

    TiVo Stream 4K (Android TV)

    https://www.tivo.com/products/stream-4k This just launched today for $50 early pricing. It's Android TV on a dongle with Dolby Vision support. As far as I understand it's the regular Android TV home screen, what you see in the product page is the TiVo app (launched by TiVo button on remote) https://explore.tivo.com/how-to/stream-4k/remote I've ordered 2 for out TVs, mostly because I love the TiVo peanut remote.. which also has a few buttons most streaming remotes omit like input, live tv, guide, etc. I believe it has the Amlogic S905Y2 chip (same as Google's dev device ADT-3?). There's no ethernet port, hopefully that can be remedied with a USB adapter. That's all I've got, just thought I'd share in case anyone else finds it interesting.

    Unlock the app, how?

    Hello! I've TS-112P QNAP NAS server with QTS 4.3.3 OS. All setup versions of Emby was failed, except This version is working flawlessy with my MiBox Android TV. If I click the 'Unlock App' button, it says 'Incompatible Server Version' but newer versions don't work on my NAS. I tried all ARM X19 versions of the Emby server; the installation doesn't give any error, the server page on port 8096 gives connection error on setup screens (I tried to restart the server and the NAS, to reinstall Emby, finally reinitialized the NAS and nothing changed). How can I unlock the app with Emby 3.5 server? I don't need Premiere features. Thank you.
  21. Hi @@ebr, Android TV stats show that this movie is transcoding due to "Video Bitrate Exceeds Limit" Audio was expected to transcode due to playback through TV/headphones Playback rate set at Auto in ATV app Home Network Quality set to 4k - 120Mbps User Transcoding: Audio and Video Allowed Ethernet connection An ffmpg "Transcoding" log was produced which suggests Video encoding happened when it shouldn't have as the shield is capable of Direct Playback of this video - as proven when Video Trancoding is turned OFF As a test, I set Video transcoding = Not allowed and ATV Playback rate to 100Mbps This time, an ffmpg "Remux" log was produced - for the Audio i presume. Playback still worked fine but ATV Stats still show "Video Bitrate Exceeds Limit" Not sure why - Bug? Attached: 2*Server logs, 2*ffmpg logs, MediaInfo, image of ATV stats for the test playback embyserver-Original Playback.txt ffmpeg-transcode-Original playback.txt embyserver-Test Playback.txt ffmpeg-remux-Test palyback.txt
  22. Hallo Zusammen, ich will mal versuchen, das Problem auf die bloßen Fakten zu reduzieren: Auf einem externen Server laufen ein PMS und Emby, Emby erst seit heute, ich kenne mich damit also noch nicht wirklich aus und bitte entsprechend um Nachsicht :smile. Clients für den Test sind eine Shield und ein Web-Browser. Der Content ist so, dass ihn die Shield und der Browser über den PMS als Direct Stream wiedergeben können, das sieht dann in etwa so aus: Das gleiche File an gleicher Stelle mit Emby wiedergegeben sieht dann so aus: Ich habe sowohl im Browser als auf dem Shield-Client die gefundenen Einstellungen so angepasst, dass alle Werte, die sich auf Bandbreite beziehen auf dem Maximalwert anstatt auf Auto stehen, mehr habe ich aber erst mal nicht ifnden können, gerade die Setings auf der Shield wirken eher spartanisch. Hat jemand einen Tipp für mich, wo man hier ansetzen kann?
  23. Latest version (1.7.78g) on Android TV (NVidia Shield). In a "Music Videos" library, I have the metadata set for each video under Title, Artists, Album, and Year. In the non-folder view, each video is listed, but only Title and Year appear. This makes it so that you cannot see the Artist on the video until you detail into it. I think it makes much more sense to show Title and Artist instead of Title and Year on the Android TV view. Attaching screenshot showing comparison of Android TV view vs web view. Thanks.
  24. Hi, The subtitles on Android TV / Shield appear too high on the image. The lower subtitle is a little above the lower black band of the movie. On the android app, iOS app, Chrome, Windows Theater, they appear in a much more logic position (next to the bottom). How can I change this? Thanks
  25. Hello everyone I got recently a Shield Pro which should my LibreELEC to replace. And my plan is to switch directly to the Emby App instead of using Emby for Kodi. But now I have discovered three things, that triggers a unwanted transcoding: Subtitles in the "DVDSUB" format, m2ts container and DD+ 7.1 audio tracks (is supported by the speakers). On Emby for Kodi its all fine (on the Shield). So can I do something against these issues in the Emby App? Thanks.
