  1. Evening All, Has anyone got some advice for getting a device to transcode all media? Effectively anything other than AVI/SD content causes stuttering and other playback issues on emby for android, however I've noticed that if the media server does all the heavy lifting (which it is more than capable of) then playback is smoother and more reliable. I've tried creating and modifying DLNA profiles to prevent direct play (even removed the directory mappings too) but it still direct plays/streams. It would be ace if you could select from the devices list your device and set some options at the device level (even if it just created a profile for you) Any ideas or thoughts? I even tried Kodi but my android tv KOs when mediacodec is used and without it the quality is naff
  2. I remember reading this somewhere in the community but can't find it. For some reason, the Google PlayStore keeps showing me that there's an update to the Emby App, but the version number is always 3.8. Does this make sense? Is it because whenever the newly released Emby App has a new version, I'm notified while never getting that update? I'm on version Version 3.0.6400.0. I've attached the Server and Emby App logs.

    Photo Libraries

    Hi Evaluating Emby and liking what i see. I have a few questions about Photo Libraries I am using version 3.0.6060.0 for windows (on win 10 pro x64) 1) Are photo libraries quite a new feature as there appears to be little or no WIKI/How To entries on them? Have searched the forum but not much info either. 2) When you enter a library and say select/open a photo after a few seconds (5?) the next photo will show - BUT - it is not the next photo by the sort order say file name - it appears random or its using some other order - is this a bug or is there somewhere you can control this? 3) If you have a photo library of just a single folder with no sub folders the "menu" options of select view/sort/filter do not appear - bug or by design? If a folder has a sub directory and you enter the options are available 4) There appears to be no way to resize the slideshow photos to scale to the screen size? 5) Some exif tags appears to be imported is there a list of what tags emby looks for? I have tried on Android (Fire HD6) and windows via chrome and the behaviour is the same Any pointers would be good Thanks
  5. Hello everyone, I have this weird bug where I can't login to my emby server from my cellphone / tablet if I'm outside of my home network; login fails with "Request was denied for security." message (cf screenshot below). Emby website in my browser outside of home network works fine. I am running Emby behind a nginx reverse proxy so I don't connect through emby connect but through an URL like xxx.noip.me:123/emby App stopped working a few weeks back with no change on the server configurations.
  6. Hello there I was using it on my Amazon FireTV-Stick last week. I used it successfully with https cert from letsencrypt. It was working without any problems and is still working on iOS. On my FireTV https stopped working. "error connecting to server" So I went back to http, the connection works.. but login... no reaction, pin login - no reaction. I can type username/password as often as i want, just nothing happens. Might be coincidence, but I received "android ...volley.." error on the first login today. Next tries ended with "wrong username password" - I pretty sure they where correct. So I tried PIN login, the website said "pin correct" when i click next, I end up in the login form again. I send a report a few minutes ago. Any ways to debug this? Server running in Docker container, Version No default ports, no "local network" available. Firetv-stick and app are "up to date" by today. Regards

  8. Hello I have emby 2.7.29 running on Android LP 6.0.1. The server is running version 3.0.6000 on a FreeBSD server and mono- Whenever I stop and exit a stream on Android, the stream on the server continues to work and doesnt kill itself. If i use a browser on a desktop, the stream gets killed correctly. Thanks
  9. Hi everyone.... First let me thank to all developers and contributors of emby for their valuable efforts on this project. I am trying to switch to Emby from Plex with respect to following history - Installation on my remote server is OK - Connecting to any media on my remote server via web browser (through remote ip and port) is OK. I could reach watch/listen to any media on the server without any problem . - Connecting to any media on my remote server via ANDROID APP is NOK - Connecting to any media on my remote server via IOS APP is NOK - I can see my remote servers name on mobile apps but no success for both mobile apps to connect to the remote server !! the error message I faced up for both negative cases is "Connection Failure We're unable to connect to the selected server right now. Please ensure it is running and try again." My tryouts to define the problem - I checked if my port is opened via external testing website . The result is OK - I switched off my server's firewall completely and tried to connect via mobile apps , but the result is NOK So what do you guys suggest me !! thank you in advance for your valuable time.
  10. Hi Guys, I recently picked up a Amazon FireTV Stick, which is great but wish I had something better. Its wifi only, I got it connect to my Asus RT-n66u router (Full Signal) and I have issues with playback sometimes stops and I have to start it again does it alot more on youtube app then emby app though. I have most of the time watch emby with no pausing and but youtube it does it atleast once, Its done it 5 seconds on to youtube. I've tried 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz. The interface isn't the fastest either, quite sluggish even if you just using it for Prime TV. I wondering what Android TV box is best. I have seen the cheap quad core things but they never as good as you think, poor android builds(not optimized). The Nvidia Shield quite nice but expensive as you have to buy a controller as well as the unit. What do you guys recommend?

    Question about hardware

    Hey guys, I am experiencing an odd issue on my Windows 7 Home Premium server I was streaming some movies and things to my chromecast VIA the android app the other day, everything was fine. All of a sudden the media would pause on its own and sit for like a minute then it would play for a minute then pause again. I thought this was odd so I remote into my machine to see what was what, and found that ffmpeg has my cpu maxed out. I restarted my machine and it cleared up the issue, for a while. Now this happens at least once a day. Its quite an annoyance. Any clue on what I can do to clear this up? Thanks!! John
  12. Running the Emby beta branch (but this began about 3-4 weeks ago and we update the beta version every 1-2 weeks) Platform: SHIELD TV We have some old workout videos we ripped from DVDs in MKV format. They've worked just fine for as long as we've had Emby. Around a month ago, we started seeing a single vertical green bar on the right-hand side of these videos and only these videos. It doesn't happen if the same file is played in Chrome or on an Android phone. We've tried: - Disabling hardware acceleration (from Intel Quick Sync to nothing) - Using custom ffmpeg (the lastest ffmpeg release) - Fiddling with the handful of options available in the Android TV app (don't recall what they were, but anything relating to video playback we tried toggling) Transcoding log is attached. Any suggestions? embytranscoding.txt

    Android Playback Buffer

    Doesn't the android client keeps some kind of buffer? If I replay the song, it still takes a while, cause it wants to start streaming from the server again; is it not already buffered? Also, if I skip back to beginning, shouldn't it just start playing. It seems it's contacting the server again to get data, something it already played. The track is like 3 minutes long. It doesn't buffer anything at all?
  14. Hey guys, If i start streaming music to another device the music plays. After starting the playback, nothing happens if i want to control the playback with the emby web interface. In my user profile i have activate the remote controlling. Am I doing something wrong? Starting playback to my Sasmung mobile phone. The playback starts. After starting the Playback I can't control this. The playlist is empty in the web interface. Only on my mobile phone i see the playlist. Pixelpaule
  15. Is there a simple way to customize the colors of the status bar in android with CSS? Emby use green and I would like to change it if it's possible.

    Playback error - Android app

    I am suddenly getting Playback error: There was an error processing the request. whenever i try to lay back most Live TV channels (a few SD channels stream fine). Error also appears when ever I try to stream other media files that have worked fine before. Everything was working fine late last night, then I took an hour or so break and came back and am having thirs issues ever since. I have 3 Android phones (1 is MM and the other 2 LP). All 3 phones have the same version of the app and all now show error. Stream on PC via Chrome still works fine. I have restart the phones, Emby server and the PC the server is installed upon. Still having issues. Logs attached. Log.txt Log (1).txt LogServer.txt
  17. Hi, over the last couple of weeks I have been receiving regular freezes/lagging whilst watching several TV Shows in a row with the "Play next video automatically" option enabled in the Settings -> Video -> Playback on Kodi. I have always had this setting enabled as it is useful for my kids to automatically watch a few shows in a row without needing to manually start a new episode after the previous one concluded. Up until recently this setting has worked well and as intended without any issues for months. Now randomly (albeit most of the time) after watching an episode or two, Kodi will freeze/become unrepsonsive. This occurs at the end of an episode as it tries to commence playing the next episode. Through trial and error I determined if you leave it long enough ie ~ 15 mins Kodi will eventually display an error on screen stating it failed to open the source file. Obviously this is not preferable and the only way to continue is forcefully close the frozen Kodi app, re-open and start play the next episode manually. My setup: Emby Linux Mono Version Beta (running on Asustor AS 7010T x64 running latest v2.6.2 linux firmware) Emby for Kodi Sync Queue on Emby Server version 1.0.6020.14567 (although I disabled this on the client for testing and the freezing seems to occur both with/without Fast Sync enabled) Emby for Kodi Beta 2.2.12 SPMC Jarvis 16.3.0 (based on Kodi 16.1 for Android) (running on Nvidia Shield Android TV v3.2) Vanilla SPMC install, running standard Confluence skin with only a couple of simple other addins: Oz Weather, HD Homerun & Multicam (view security cameras) plugins Wired 1Gb ethernet network (I have just tested and the problem occurs also occurs on the standard clean install of the App store version of Kodi 16.1 for Android on the same Nvidia Shield. So I am deducing that it is not a SPMC specific problem) In the below log file, the episode I watched concluded around the 21:43:31 mark. Kodi then Lagged/froze/became unresponsive for ~ 15 mins and at the 22:01:17 mark Kodi finally displayed an error onscreen saying failed to open source for next episode. Kodi/SPMC Log: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5mwpokt5vaw856v/spmc.log?dl=0 Thanks for your help and please let me know if you require any additional information.

    Android TV recommended remote?

    I have a Leelbox with Amlogic S905 chip and it came with a remote that isn't satisfactory (doesn't even have a play button!). It has Emby Android TV installed and works great. Any recommendations for a third party remote to use? Specifically, I would like play, record, jump forward, jump backward, fast forward, and fast backward working. I was thinking a Logitech Harmony 650 for my main home theater then something cheaper for the other TVs (open to suggestions).
  19. Anybody out there with experience with Android Widgets? I've done some work on widgets before, and if my schedule lightens up, I'd love to help develop widgets for Emby Android Mobile. Capabilities would include (but not be limited to) list of recent episodes in favorited series (rss style) and list of favorite movies (also rss style). Capabilities for admins would include server stats: storage quotas, cpu and memory usage, temperatures could be integrated with a future hwmonitor plugin, number of current users, number of current streams. All these items should be clickable directly to their location inside the app, but looking for feedback from any other devs with Android widget experience.
  20. Here's a humble screenshot of a re-designed Emby icon that follows Google's material design principles. If you're interested in incorporating it into the App builds, let me know what file format you'd like. These were made with Adobe Illustrator and are vector files, so I can export pretty much whatever filetype you need. Two samples, adding a little more virtual depth to the logo.
  21. Hey guys, Work recently gave me an Android phone to use. I've been travelling a lot lately, and was wondering if the Android App would work with a Chromecast when not connected to the server. Is it possible to just mirror, or cast from the phone while offline using videos I've synced to the phone? Thanks.
  22. Hi, I'm trying the web client on an android and can't find a way to choose subtitles. Is there a way to a) choose subtitles from the ones that exist on the server download a new file from the player page on the browser for content for which there are no subtitles on the server ? Thanks, Gonçalo
  23. Recently I've noticed that in Live TV, "New" episodes aren't showing in the guide, under channel, or when you select the show that is "New". It appears to be only affecting mobile as when I use a computer to browse I see the "New" tag, thus ruling out an issue with Schedules Direct. I'm having this issue on my Nexus 6P running Android N build NPD35K. I understand that Android N might not be support as it's a beta Android, I'll check on my Nexus 7 later today that's on Android M. Screenshots attached.

  25. I have installed Kodi + Emby on a Sony Bravia TV (Android TV OS) The problem is, the Incremental Sync only runs when the app is first started. When an AndroidTV device is turned off, the system stays "awake" for 5 minutes - after this time, the network is turned off and the device goes to full sleep. Kodi is still running, but unable to receive new content broadcasts from the Emby server. So then when the TV is turned back on, the library remains out of date unless you fully restart the Kodi app or go to the Emby addon and select Manually Sync (but this is slower than restarting, and not 'incremental'). I don't know if the Emby addon can detect when the device leaves sleep mode or when the Network connection becomes active again - so the only solution I can think of, is to be able to manually trigger an incremental sync via hotkey. So I just need to know if there is a command in the Emby addon to trigger the incremental sync. I've done similar things with other addons, such as "<a mod="shift,ctrl">RunScript(script.audio.profiles,0)</a>", so it should be possible. Does a command already exist, or can one be added? It's the only inconvenient thing about this setup. Thanks.
