    Switch if VC1 gets transcoded

    A friend of mine gave my a FireTV Stick as a present and I installed Jarvis 16.1 with latest Emby Beta Addon. Everything is working very nice for such a small stick. Only thing bothering is the lack of VC-1 support. I read here and there in the forum but did not find a solution satisfying (manually bringing the server to transcode the VC1 by lowering Emby for Kodi bitrate setting beneath the original stream rate). The only thing I found so far was this thread http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/25803-forece-transcoding-for-specific-codecs/ where @@Angelblue05 suggested the OP to ask in another forum section. But it seems this never happened. Request: So since there seem to be more devices with VC1 playback problems (not just FireTV), i want to request a switch/setting to turn transcoding VC1 on with the same effect already present in the FireTV Emby app (transcoding). I don't know if this needs to be inquired by the Emby for Kodi plugin to the server or if this needs to be a setting in the server itself perhaps based on the device type connecting. If someone points me in a better direction or tells me that something is already existing ( @@ebr @@Luke ), I will of course withdraw my request Thanks for your attention guys.
  2. Must say Kodi seems to be much better than Emby Theater, should have made the switch years ago (been holding out for the new version). It is however just way more of a pain to get a suitable skin and setup going. Slightly preferring Mimic over Arctic Zephyr: From Ashes skin. (Hopefully new Kodi 17 skin helps with this.) More responsive than Emby Theater and most importantly the "6 button" remote actually works (can't rewind and fast forward small increments in Emby Theater). Having a YouTube plugin is also great. Using the default connection/play method between Emby and Kodi, and only have Trakt setup in Emby. But for some reason sometimes things show up twice in my Trakt history (two entries marked as watched at the same time). Also often if clicking on something watching 5 seconds and stopping, also gets marked as watched in Trakt. (Still having stability issues I haven't looked into yet. Crash when starting up with windows and trying to play something and crash if idle for around 5 min.) Friends all using Plex... Might have to actually give it a try.

    Channel not changing

    As title says I am changing channels but Emby just continues playing the same TV Show that I first played. Its showing the new channel on the remote section but not changing. Please advice sorry if this is a known issue. Thanks
  4. Hi Folks, very small feature request from my side. I would love to see on the movie detail page in the web client (right next to the Imdb- and TheMovieDB-Link) another Hyperlink which points to the trakt.tv Site. This would be useful especially for rating movies, since the trakt plugin for emby doesn't offer (yet?) any possibility to rate a seen movie. As far as i read in in the trakt api documentation the web service accepts IMDB Links, which is great because so there is no further information needed. The URL follows the Schema https://trakt.tv/movies/[imd_id] e.g. this link for the first American Pie Movie https://trakt.tv/movies/tt0163651 Btw. I am using especially the IMDB Links a lot and from my point of view the links would deserve a much more prominent space in the upper area of the detail page. Best Regards Chandler
  5. "Support media track display titles" is a fantastic update included in server 3.0.5971 (the latest version from the official release channel. More info on this update can be found here http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/34573-audio-and-subtitle-track-labels-for-mkv-containers/) This update is working and looks good in the Firefox browser, but it is not reflected on the Apple TV app. Can you please improve the Apple TV app to include this update?
  6. Would be nice to show file size in the movie details screen near path to the file See screenshot as an example (highlighted with yellow)
  7. Hi, I currently have Emby running on my unraid machine without too many problems. I'm using it with spmc on a nvidia shield and zidoo x6 pro. However I ran into something strange this evening. Most of my movies and series are on user-shares with a path substitution for Emby. Since my protected array is quite full I added two 'todo'-folders for movies and series that haven't been added to the array (directly on the cache-drive) so that I could add them to Emby anyway. Made the appropriate path substitutions and thought it would be okay. Until I wanted to watch one of the series in the \serie_todo\..-folder which failed (file not available, etc.). This happened on the zidoo, but I don't expect this to be a client-side problem. By the way: Everything is scraped correctly. What am I doing wrong? Checking now: might not have added the actual path substitutions (just the mapping in unraid) Result: no success, it seems to add the new subs path to the old prefix (smb://ipaddress/videosmb://ipaddress/cache/serie_todo) unfortunately cannot continue working on it at the moment, will return soon with new tried options and results
  8. After seeing how beautiful the apple tv app with it's lighter theme I would like to suggest for a future possibility to have a option for a lighter theme. Roku app, theater, ios and web client all have a dark theme so it could be a server option. It would be even better if all apps could have a similar theme to apple tv which is not that much of a deviation from the current theme. I realy like how the theme is similar across all the apps that was a very good design decision however there is always room for improvement to make them even better looking. So if you want a lighter theme please like my post for the developers to at least consider it. This is down the track suggestion

    Subtitles question

    Is there a way to use subtitle in .mkv file as default? All my movies have 2 subtitles - one external MovieName.srt and one internal with language code (srp) as default and not forced. When use HTTP instead of SMB always is active external subtitle that does not have all the letters (wrong code page). Manually I can switch to internal subtitle and all is OK. On DirectPath working OK, Kodi use external subtitle but code page is OK.
  10. When browsing through my library the item limit seems to be capped to 100. Pagination requires me to use the arrows to go to the next page. Is there a way to turn this off, and instead showing a flowing list of items instead without having to switch pages? If not, is it possible to implement an option where you can control the number of items per page, with ideally an option to show everything without pagination?

    Playback resume issue

    Something that has happened semi-regularly ever since using Emby with Kodi on OpenELEC is that I will finish watching a TV episode and when I go to a new one, it resumes at the same point in time where I stopped the last one (usually the end of the episode) even though I've never watched the episode previously. I could be watching a completely different TV show and then all of a sudden it resumes (without asking) right near the end of the episode. Anyone have the same issue or know of a fix?

    Device sleep, crashing on wake

    So here's my scenario: Kodi on HTPC, Emby on Server I always let the HTPC with running Kodi go to sleep while the Server is still active. The Server itself goes to sleep some minutes after this. The next time i wake up the HTPC while the Server is still sleeping, i get the known "Library Sync Thread has Exited" error. Shortly after this i get the notification from the Kodi Emby addon "Server unreachable". Imho this is a simple error in the logic how things are executed. The addon should first check for successful connection before starting the sync thread. If the connection is refused, then don't start the sync thread at all. I can attach the logs in the evening if you want some, but maybe my description is enough to find the culprit?!
  13. I was just wondering if it will ever be possible to have live TV supported with full dvr control and an nice EPG supported from within the Emby Samsung TV application. Although I love the new look and feel of Emby Theatre for Windows 10, I just don't see the need to have individual HTPC boxes in the rooms when I can just run one very powerful server and just plug my TV's into the network. Currently running windows 10 enterprise, ported a version of WMC into it and have the Ceton Infinitv 6 for cable card use. What are your thoughts?
  14. Hi, When I go to the media folders I see a maximum of six tiles for the folders which take up a large portion of the screen. I myself have more than 6 media folders and I wondered if it is possible to show more folders in the screen. Thanks.
  15. Nothing quite beats being able to hit one button and get a random TV show to simulate the channel flipping of the past. This is possible in the web browser through shuffling video playlists. This is something present in Plex and a feature my wife and I have come to greatly rely on as we enjoy being able to watch random reruns of a variety of different categories and show lengths. So this feature request is to support video playlists on Android TV. Thanks for listening and the awesome media server!
  16. is there a chance to add Live TV section to the Samsung TV app? Thanks Dave
  17. I've tried WMC, KODI, PLEX, and EMBY. I found EMBY very impressive. I happily paid $99.99 to help developers to continue improving this awesome EMBY software. Anyway, I really love Live TV, Schedules Direct Guide, and its built-in recording capability. I use SiliconDust HDHomerun Connect device that carry CC (Closed Captioning for Hearing-Impaired) data. Sadly, this Live TV does not have a feature to allow us to enable CC. My son informed me that he recorded one TV program and used an external VLC player and it worked fine. It's much a hassle using the external player. Otherwise, we have enjoyed movies with perfect subtitles. It is my sincere hope that Emby developers will improve Live TV to include the essential CC capability in near future. Keep up with your excellent work on the software. Thanks, David

  19. Going to Emby,Tv Shows,Next Episode same thing with Anime it lists the next episodes but it wont play any of them or show the info when i press "i" or the info button on my remote. " Playback failed One or more items failed to play..." Was working on .62 kodi.log
  20. Setting up a few boxes for relatives to stream from my PC, for this reason I'm forcing a relatively low bitrate in order to save my upload bandwidth (parents don't seem to notice any difference between HD and SD anyways ). One problem is that when a transcoded file plays in Kodi it asks each time to select an audio track and/or a subtitle track. Is there a way to prevent this and have it just default to English audio track or the normal default audio track. Trying to cut down on the confusion for once I hand these over to my parents so they don't have to select this each and every time. Cheers!
  21. While setting up a new device or just searching for the next hiccup it would sometimes be useful to be able to jump to the currently playing media which is shown in the server dashboard. Maybe just by clicking on the image of the active device. ATM now, I have to search for the item in the search field (which sometimes work and sometimes not) or need to manually browse through the library to see the media details.
  22. Installing 1.1.60. Brand new install. It starts to do the full sync, get to about the 200 movie and the screen goes black, comes back and starting the sync over again. It does this over and over again. Raspberry Pi2 with Openelec 6.0 and Kodi 15
  23. Using Kodi 15.2 using openelec on both. One is a PC and one is an android box.and Emby v3.0.5781.0 through a docker on my unraid server. Everything seems to work fine except that the watched status doesn't always update. Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. I am using ArticZephyr Extended skin.
  24. A repost. Do I need to do a separate post for each problem? Also not sure if logs are needed. I have been testing emby server along with this kodi client and there is a lot lot of good stuff here. I really like the combination. Just a few observations. The kodi client does not seem to import the tags from the server? Is this by design, or something on a todo list. I use tags to create subcategories so it would be really useful to have them imported. The server does not seems to scan music videos with "&" in the title and it places a "?" where the are special characters such "ñ" (in the title). Artist grouping for music has been fixed in Kodi as of Isengard RC2, but I noticed that the artist grouping does not work at all in Emby's Kodi client. I suspect it has to do with the way artists are been handled in Kodi becuase the ListItem.Artist gives the correct info but as I said grouping does not work. https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/7511 & https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/7419 and the pesrsons who worked on them may shed some light on how the artist grouping works. Music Video Album grouping does not seem to work either. A request: Is it possible to put an option to not have Emby's Kodi client create items in \\userdata\library\video. I have my own menus and each time I delete the ones generated, they return. Having said those things, the approach is nice, the web client is beautiful and nice for managing the server. Your software makes multiple installations of Kodi easier to manage. Thank for your efforts. Cheers, LongMan
  25. One thing that I would like to see implemented is the abilty to display lyrics in all of the apps. For those of us who have libraries with lyrics embedded in the actual files, it would be trivial. Simply scrape the lyrics from the lyrics tag and display them. As far as scraping from online lyrics databases, I don't see that working very well as just about every app that I have seen use it either doesn't get the correct lyrics or they are truncated with an add for the website.
