  1. I'm running into an issue accessing Emby remotely through my iPhone 6 (iOS 9.2) on Safari. When I go to play a video, I see the screen below. It's a hovering popup that will not scroll down far enough to get to the option " X CLOSE AND PLAY MY MEDIA". If I go to my laptop and open the same page in Chrome, debugging mode (F12) and view the page as an iPhone 6, the same thing happens. If I drag and resize the device, however, I see the following screen: Clicking the close/play option get me along my way and watching videos. Is there any way to disable this pop-up, or work around it in Safari? Thanks.
  2. Hello. I recenrly switched to Emby from a Kodi+Plex setup. A unified library is really handy, and Emby for Kodi is miles better than PleXBMC, however, the mobile devices don't work as well. On this page it says that direct play is only supported with H.264 encoded video in .MP4, .MOV and .M4V containers, however, Plex offered direct playback of H.264 in an .MKV (it still had to transcode when selecting subtitles, even .srt's, but that's another story). Is this feature planned? I can just use Kodi on a jailbroken iPad, but the interface clearly wasn't made with touchscreens in mind. Thanks in advance

    Spinning blue circle???

    I have read a few posts in the past about this but I still cannot find the answer to my problem. I am trying to use Chromecast with the ISO Version of media browser to stream video. All devices seem to be on the same network - not sure if this is my problem or not (Chromecast is on 192,168,2,15, IPAD is on and Emby server latest version is on I have connected the Ipad media browser directly to the local address of port 8096) My chromecast can stream YOUTUBE with no problems and the ipad can see everything in my library - when I connect to chromecast then select the video the control window pops up - chromecast start and the blue circle keeps going and going. Help!!
  4. hello, I have a concern with Emby on Ubuntu server, when accessing http Emby, videos read this without problems, but when I accessed via https, I misread Video window, yet all my videos are in MP4 format. I do not understand what's going on! thank you in advance for your support
  5. The web client on IOS Safari is not displaying images correctly on my devices. The images are often wrong: I'll get a picture of an actor on a movie entry, or no picture at all. I've even seen my login icon displayed. If I tap on an item, the metadata is correct, but the images are all messed up. No backdrops show, even if I change the Setting value to Yes instead of Auto. The image of the poster may or may not be there; if it is, it may or may not be correct. My library looks fine on Chrome for IOS, and on any browser on my Desktop; it's just Safari. I don't mind using Chrome, but I'd like to use a home screen icon for Emby, and they only open in Safari. This happens on both iPhones and iPads. I've tried clearing out the cookies and history but it hasn't helped. I happens in any format: List, Thumb, Poster . I've attached 2 screen snaps. One is of an expanded movie page for the "Catch Me If You Can" that shows no backdrop images and the poster is for Aviator. I'm pretty sure the fact that both movies have the same star is just coincidence. In List View, that item showed the image for Cold Mountain. The other snap is of the List view showing, among other mixups, Reese Witherspoon on the Harry Potter collection. The images for Gathering Storm and Gentleman's Agreement are also wrong. However, if I tap on them, the images are correct, including backdrops! I realize this is probably errors with Safari, but I'd be happy to hear any suggestions.
  6. Just installed emby server on Windows 7 and am having trouble using web client from iPad2 iOS 5.1.1 Safari browser. Searched this forum but only issues I've seen are having different issues with playback or interface. My browser loads the web/index.html but gives only a blank screen. When I turn on browser's debug console, I get a JavaScript ScriptError: Parse error on line 490 web/bower_components/webcomponentsjs/webcomponents-lite.js?v=3.0.5675.1 Also four other "log" messages but I assume the error is more of an issue. Just wondering if this is a known/common problem for this setup or if there's something wrong with my install and/or configuration. Surprised I haven't seen it mentioned so it might be just me. Any help or info would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Potential Fix for No Play Button

    Like others, I was missing the play button on the app. Even applying the last update didn't fix it. I was able to resolve it, however, by deleting and reinstalling the app entirely. Once I did a full install, it was back.

    Media type not supported

    Hello, I have an android phone & an iPad. Viewing files on the android is absolutely fine but when it comes to viewing files on the ipad it doesn't work. And when I say it (doesn't) work, I mean this when trying to access the files through the 'folders' menue. When accessing the files through the 'home' / 'movies' tab, it works fine but not when trying to filter through the folders. The Error = Media type not supported Hope this makes some sort of sense and that there is a fix out there.

    No primary images on iOS

    Over the past few days I have noted a problem with the top level primary images in both the free app and ipad one. All other clients seem to be ok to me. Note from the below image there are no primary images or indeed even a user profile image bottom right. Another point to note is boxsets are no longer grouped. An example of this 28 which can can seen in the image. Server log attached. I see a lot of the following in the log. Images are present in the home screen and when entering an item. The title also plays fine. 2015-01-19 21:19:45.0122 Debug - HttpServer: HTTP Response 200 to Response time: 185.0003 ms.

  12. Hi there, As of January 24 2015 my iPhone 6 and iPad 3 do not connect to the Media Browser server. I just get a "Server Unreachable" message. It's strange because I watched a movie last night and it worked perfectly fine. I haven't changed any settings on my router or made any changes to the configuration of MB. Here is my config: MB Version 3.0.5490.2 OSX 10.10.1 (14B25) I used the "Auto Find Server" function on the iPad Media Browser app and my server IP was found right away, but after clicking on "Movies" I just get the spinning wheel. Watching movies in Chrome on the computer itself works fine. Anyone experiencing the same thing? Anyone found a solution? Thanks, Mariusz
  13. Whenever I add new content to the server, I have found that the new coverart/screenshots do not load on the homepage of the ipad app. However when I click on a movie or episode, the image appears correctly in the details box. It seems as though the images on the home page are not refreshing when new media is added, and there is no drag to refresh option on the homepage. The Movies and TV sections both show all the coverart and refresh correctly using the drag down method. Does any one know why the home page images aren't appearing? This seems like a problem at the server level since it is happening on multiple ipads and uninstalling/reinstalling the app did not change anything. Is there something I can refresh on the server side? If it's a server issue, I will gladly include a log if needed. This has been happening for a while, through several server updates. Server is currently Version 3.0.5429.25781

    No servers found

    Hello, long time Plex user, wanted to try this out, but so far not impressed as it can't even simply find my home server like Plex did in seconds. Keeps telling none found, no idea how to add it?? Have it running on my desktop PC so now what?
  15. The Web Client in any of my computers under any browser display the subtitles. But when I open the Web Client in a mobile device under the chrome browser app (for some reason I can't log in in the safari browser) never displays the subtitles. Both under the same user's settings. Any suggestions will be appreciated

    Is there a way to clear iOS cache?

    I have image inconsistancies between my iOS devices and the web client in that in the web client I can see images but for some titles in iOS those those titles have no image. Please see the below post for details. http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/13113-imagescoverart-for-new-media-not-loading-on-homepage/?p=155213
  17. I recently installed MediaBrowser on my Mac (which is now running Yosemite). After the installation completed, the setup wizard automatically launched in my default browser, which is Chrome. After completing the setup wizard, I went to take a look at my media, but I was greeted with a blank screen with absolutely no graphics. Even my photo that I had uploaded for my profile was missing. Thinking that the server was still processing everything, I decided to give it a while and just check back later. When I came back a few hours, I was greeted with the same blank screen devoid of any graphics. I deleted the cache and browsing history in Chrome, but still nothing showed up. For some stranger reason, I decided to try to access the server using Firefox. A few minutes later I was looking at a screen full of movie posters. Even my uploaded photo was present at the top of the screen. A quick check of Opera and Safari yielded the same result...everything looks fine in those. So I decided to move on to the mobile clients. I downloaded Mark's MediaBrowser Android Client, and was unfortunately met with the same lack of graphics that I had on my Mac when using Chrome. However when I try BubbleUPnP or MediaHouse-Pro on the same Android device, everything seems to work just fine and all of the graphics are there. I moved on to my iPhone and tried the Media Browser for iOS client, then on to my iPad where I tried the Media Browser Client and all appears to be working fine there. My frustration is that Chrome is my default browser on my computer, and my Android phone is my primary device (and I want to use Mark's MediaBrowser Android Client as my default Android app). I rarely carry my iPhone with me, and I don't want to have to take my iPad with me every time I think I might want to watch a video. I want to be able to watch movies on my Mac using Chrome and use the MediaBrowser Android Client to push my movies to Chromecast when I'm away from home. Any suggestions? I've already tried a fresh installation, following the steps listed on Page 2 of the installation faq, but I'm still getting the same issue. I'm at a loss. Hopefully one of you can shed some light on the situation. Post includes screen shots illustrating what I've described. Log files from the new install done today are located in the attached zip file.

    iPad to Chromecast Bugs

    I have been using the media browser app (1.1.3) for awhile now both by itself and streaming to my TV via Chromecast. I haven't had any problems with playback on my iPad air itself, but recently I have been having many issues with streaming to Chromecast. Typically, I would have Chromecast started and waiting, open the app, connect to Chromecast, hit the refresh button on the app which changes the TV to media browser, and select content to play. This has, in the past few weeks, worked flawlessly. In the past week or so, the content will play for a few minutes and stop, or not play at all. I then proceed to disconnect, restart Chromecast, restart my iPad, restart the app, restart the server, and even restart my wifi in my attempt to fix the problem. It then might work for one episode of a show, but then not work for the next episode. Last night a stream to Chromecast froze as I described above, but instead of trying to troubleshoot it I just tried playing back on the app itself without even restarting anything. It worked flawlessly, leading me to believe the issue is not with the server, or my network, but with the app streaming to Chromecast. Please let me know how I can help resolve what I believe is a bug. If you tell me how, I can send whatever logs the server generates, or I can post a video of the issue so you can see exactly what my workflow is.

    Movies stop playing when casting

    I am running MB server 3.0.5424.1 on a Gateway DX4840 and am running media browser 1.1.3 on my IPAD 2. The app connects to the server just fine. The problem is when I cast the movie to my TV utilizing Chromecast. It started fine, but within 20 minutes or so, the movie just stopped and returned to the start screen. I returned to the point where it left off and started playing again, but shortly thereafter, it happened (and continued to happen) again. It didn't seem to correspond to the IPAD sleeping, but if I kept toggling the "clients" menu on and off, it seems to keep it from stopping. Any ideas?
  20. Hello Guys, I didn't know where to place this so I placed it here. If it needs to be moved, please feel free to do so. Alright, Let me get to it. I just decided to get an XBOX as an extender to use with Windows Media Center and Media Browser Classic. As we all know XBOX does not play MKV files. All my files are MKVs. I would like to write a script or use an existing one with minor modification to mass convert all my movies and tv series from MKV to MP4. I am not sure what I do know about MKV to MP$ to be true so I am asking for some help. I have read several threads and everyone has their own take on this. This is what I know so far. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong. MP4 must only contain AAC or AC3 tracks to be compatible with all devices. Converting MKV to MP4 is a resource hog and it is super slow. To speed the process MKV can just change the container to MP4 which is super fast. A lot of MKVs are encoded in H.264 which means the video part does not need to be re-encoded. It can just be copied to the new container. Also there will be no quality lost. Now if you have an MKV file with a DTS track, you may want to change the video container but remux the audio to AC3 or AAC. But AC3 requires the user to have a receiver. Otherwise, it will be force to be transcoded. AAC is the most common track. It will playback in all devices. Someone suggest to add an AAC track as well as AC3 to all MP4s to ensure that the file does not require transcoding ever. Also if someone has already done that, by all means, share the info. Edit: I would not have a chance to proof read so please ignore all grammar. I have to run to a meeting. Thanks,
