  1. Hi Im using a low powered android ARM device with Kodi Leia and Emby for Kodi addon. The device (like most low powered android devices) has a decent x264 decoder and can natively play up to 4K x264 content with the in built hardware decoding. But sadly when you try and play even SD XVID files, the video jitters/stutters. This is because very few vendors have proper hardware acceleration of xvid on low powered android devices, and even if the device falls back to ffmpeg software decoding, the video still stutters. Low powered arm devices just struggle with xvid content, even with if it's SD. But if you convert that same SD content to x264, then the video plays back fine! Is there anyway to tell emby server to force transcode xvid (or divx) to x264 when playing xvid/divx content through kodi for Emby? I can see lots of options to force transcode 10bit content to x264, can the same please be added for xvid and divx content? Or can someone please explain another way i can force transcode xvid/divx videos on the fly to x264? I also don't want to lower the quality scale to some poor lower than sd quality just to trick the server to transcode. Really Need a dedicated setting to always force transcode xvid content. For the reasons explained above. Cheers
  2. Win7 Server AndroidTV Beta 1.7.33g AndroidTV Log Sent just now. User TVTime Server logs forthcoming. All I get is a spinner and my HDHomeRun GUI shows several attempts to tune with disconnects. Trying to play or record Local LiveTV. It works on my other machine running the beta server BTW. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk
  3. According to https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Discussions/Dev-channel-build-77-0-211-2-is-live/m-p/745801#M6548 Microsoft's Chromium-based Edge browser, now supports HEVC decoding. This should allow it to direct play if support is added.
  4. I know this might be tricky but when you access a series in the web app the season count is always off by 1. I haven't checked the other apps but i guess that might be the same in there. Example: Seinfeld is a 9 season show, but my season count is 10, because i have an "extras" season where i put all the behind the scenes stuff... Maybe the count could be just for folders naned "Season" and not something else? Or have a metadata field on season level to "exclude from season count"? Either would work i guess, but the second option would be best as not all my series have "Season" as the name if the folder... Sometimes it's "Series" or in french "Saison". Anyways... that would be a nice tweak Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk
  5. Greetings, I just updated to the latest version of Emby for Kodi this morning. Now, when I click on the All movies menu option (I'm using the Embuary skin) and my movies start to load, Kodi crashes after a few seconds of loading. This didn't occur with the prior stable version of Emby for Kodi. I'm away from home right now so can't upload a log, but I'll try to later tonight. For now, I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this after updating to the new version of Emby for Kodi. Thanks! Sent from my Pixel 3a using Tapatalk
  6. If you find a feature request posted here that you wish the development team to implement then like/thumbs up the first post of that thread. The devs monitor how many ‘likes’ that post gets and the more votes, the higher up the list it goes. Hopefully pushing it closer to being added to Emby. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Quick question: Is there a way to send a message to all users who are logged in/watching something? Occasionally I need to reboot the Emby server machine and would like to send out a message to all logged in that it will be down for about 5 minutes. I couldn't find any information on this with a quick forum search.
  8. I know this has been discussed before but can we get back the embedded audio track titles? This was chaged a few weeks back around the time when the multiple version selection was introduced. I get that people dont want to have tracks named weirdly by release groups seeking attention but i mostly do not download content and take the time set my track names just as i like them. I guess that could be an option to "auto rename tracks" or "read track names as is" to please everyone. That would make a good xmas gift Thank you !
  9. Is one of these two options preferred? Does it matter? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I would like to request a new feature. I want to be able to setup a scheduled task that converts all my media to MP4 when the system is ideal and delete the original after the conversion is successful. Is there a way to do this now? If not, how do we go about putting in a feature request to get this added?
  11. Hoping someone can explain how this works because Im confused and trying to solve an irritation. When I watch live TV, and commercials come on, they vary between dolby surround and dolby digital. This causes my receiver to cut out while switching sound profiles and sound drops out in-between commercials with different profiles. I recorded a show while this happened live and when I playback the recording everything stays in dolby digital so the audio dropouts never happen. Is the recording being converted even though its direct streaming (shows unsupported container for the video portion). Next question is, besides downmixing to stereo, is there a way for live tv to maintain the same audio regardless of what the feed is sending like it does on recordings? Im trying to eliminate the dropouts and they happen regardless of direct playing live tv or allowing timeshifting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Please, delete my account

    Hi, Newbie here. I created an user name and email address of your Emby online account and would like to request the deletion of my account for not using the service. Thanks.
  13. So it would be nice if we could choose to hide libraries from the top instead of being forced to see it. See like in my case I would like to have movie collections and playlist but without them appearing on the top in libraries. And I was thinking that it would be a nice feature to be able to hide them if preferred because you can already access them from other areas. For examples for playlist you can just go under the music library and tap on playlist, or the collections is under movies. I'm not saying to completely remove them but to give the option to hide them. That would be a feature I would like to see in Emby

    iOS plugins

    Would to be able to edit & tweak plugins from the iOS app Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. It would help to have the devices that are actively streaming moved to the top or put somewhere easily found on the dashboard. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. When we search for a title on the Android TV home screen using voice search or the keyboard, "global search" display the apps where the title is available, Emby must support this whether if it's for movies, music, etc. I count on your upvote for Emby developers to take this suggestion into account. Thanks.

    Home Network Syncing

    Would like to have option to only sync on home network so that it doesn't kill my upload when I am away from home. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Library tread has exited

    Hello I setup a kodi windows client with embycon and embuary and it worked fine for a week. When I launch kodi now it askes for my login again for some reason. I checked the embycon settings its still in there. 2 seconds later I get the error "emby for kodi Library sync tread has exited" log file attached kodi.txt
  19. In the web app, when displaying the Movies view, there is an option to display the year. But when grouping movies into collections in-line, entering a collection view, dates are NOT shown: and there is no option to display one... a bit of an inconsistency when exploring a movie library. Would either like to see the year displayed for collection components by default, or as a display option similar to the Movies view.

    Transcoding Drive

    My transcoding drive didn't auto dump today. When it was full new streams could not start. Is this a known issue? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. The Roku thumbnails plugin needs to allow for the user to choose which libraries they want to generate thumbnails for. On running the current task it's taken nearly 12 hours to complete 35%, I've found in the logs that there are a LOAD of errors when creating thumbnails for trailers (as in, the plugin, not my own). I've now uninstalled the trailers plugin. Also, one of my libraries contains a LOT of files in it which I don't need thumbnails for, and due to the quantity this takes a very long time to complete (it also slows the library scan down as thumbnails are created whenever a new file is found). Firstly, I'm fairly sure nobody wants or needs thumbnails creating for the trailers plugin, so this should be disabled anyway. For the other library of mine, for me there is simply no need for thumbnails, but with other users also I don't doubt there are many libraries out there that don't need thumbnails therefore it is wasted processing and storage.
  22. Would it be possible to add another default landing screen for Genres to "Movies"?
  23. If I want my users to download subittles, they need to have manage server permission. It would be nice to have a permission so they have edit subtitle option, just like allow media downloading enables download link. I have to give server management permission to every user if I want them to be able to download subtitles, because sometimes subtitle is offsync and I don't want that they have to ask me to download subtitles for them.
  24. I see the transcoding log for interlaced to utilized yadif=0. Is there anyway to use yadif=1. This is a bob/weave de-interlace that produces MUCH better results. Any way to implement this or has it been tried? Devices like Roku can't deinterlace and the Bob/weave results are so much better than the standard deinterlace.
  25. Hi. I found that the Client side (APPS) that I use (Android TV and Roku), they doesn't have the option to setting up the audio or the subs before play. This feature is present and working in the web/server side. It is very handy. If for some reason you don't have a receiver and your TV can handle stereo, or dolby, or dts, only. Avoiding the initial hang or freeze of the APP if the audio is multichannel and your TV is stereo is a good thing. However, It depends of your TV brand, some can handle ac3 (dolby 5.1), some DTS 5.1 and sometimes both, sometimes just one of those or only stereo. Since 7.1/2 and 9.1/2 are more popular and complex to transcode, one option is find and add an aditional audio track (for compatibility, if is available) and choose that other audio 5.1 to be transcoded on the fly. I don't know why this is happend (hang or freeze), some ffmpeg issues, maybe... (I don't know), but sometimes the APP leave the movie hanged or can't be played, and other times, for some unknown reason, the video can't be played, because the audio can't be transcoded. Anyway, nevermind if it just to avoid more complex audio to transcode but many times when you have 2 or 3 audio tracks available, and maybe two languages, if you can change the audio before play any content, is much better. I had to change the default audio many times in the server side before play some content, and then go to the device to can watch the video/movie/tv show without problems. This feature maybe, can give to the developers team, more clues to fight with some playback issues when the content needs to be transcoded, in this case, the audio. Anyway, if you can choose the audio or subs before play any content, it is a good thing. Thanks in advance. Regards.
