    Roku Playback Issue

    Hi, I installed this a few hours ago on my MacBook Pro and Roku 1. The Roku 1 connects to and sees all the media in my folder, even creating thumbnails from the media. But once I press Play, the blue "retrieving" bar gets just under half way across and freezes. It stays like that for a minute or two, then returns to the previous screen. A transcode log is created, but no transcodes are created in the "transcoding-temp" folder. I've tried AVIs, MOVs & MP4s using an h264 or MP4 codec. Please note that if there's a preferred codec / wrapper combo that would make streaming easier or more efficient, please let me know as I would have no problem transcoding my files as needed to accommodate the process. As instructed, I'm attaching the server log and transcode log. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Chaz server-63588030976.txt transcode-d0856d29-1297-4f13-8946-1b69116bbd0e.txt
  2. Hello Emby, big fan here and I've been using Emby for a few months now. I've been having a small issue. I have a supporter membership so I would assume that my users would not have to also pay for it correct? Because it seems like I'm having issues with a new user I added maybe a day ago. I have added them to my server via email confirmation link and I was able to log in on my device to ensure playback was working but when they try to sign in on their device it comes up with the please unlock this app message. Is the only way to get that to disappear to have them sign in through my wifi? Because he lives a town over and I would rather him avoid the drive. Sorry if it is a dumb question, I just haven't quite been caught up to date with everything on the app yet. Thanks in advance guys!
  3. I recently installed the Enby app for roku. I can connect to the server, see all of my folders, series, episodes etc. but when I click on an episode or movie to play, it shows a progress bar to indicate that it is loading/buffering and stops halfway through and then reverts to the previous page. Any help would be appreciated.
  4. Well the title sort of says it all.. Are iso rips with iso mounting and external player loading in Emby Configurator for WMC still the best way to do it? In the past I was using MB2.6.X with this set up to play back via TMT5 for WMC. Then my HTPC failed on me and I am just now finally getting everything put back together. Any suggestions would be welcome.
  5. Complete newbee here. Just installed Emby on Mac OS X (10.7.5). Set it all up (I think) and added movies. Using an Android phone to ensure things are working correctly, downloaded the emby app. videos thumbnails and details show up but every time I play them, the green Emby logo spins then gives me a "Playback Error". There was a error processing the request. The videos are .m4v codec.
  6. Hi all i seem to have a issue with playback with emby. in the webgui . after around 2-4min it just stopes. and if i stop the move/tv show to go back agian and try same happens.

  7. How do I configure Emby Server and Clients on Windows to give same quality playback as when playing direct from the filesytem? On our laptops we generally get better quality driving Windows Explorer to \\emby-server\media\show.mkv (or .flv or ...) and playing with VLC than we do pointing a browser (Firefox, Chrome) at http://emby-server:8096/. While playing a show in browser clicking the cog icon at top right sometimes shows "Direct" as a playback option and sometimes not. Sometimes the max rate is "720p - 10 Mbps" and sometimes "720p - 8 Mbps". (Our tv is 720p so we don't usually store videos of greater resolution). Sometimes even playing a 480p video in through Emby is noticeably more grainy than VLC direct (played minutes apart, with no difference in ambient network conditions). The server is 100mbit wired ethernet to the wifi router. while the clients are WiFi (mixed 11/54Mbps). So it's not a great network, but still shouldn't Emby at least be able to match VLC? And if not, how to add an additional "play" button to launch VLC via "file://emby-server/media/show.mkv" file association?

    Can't play some media

    Hi I installed emby natively on my synology and I can't play some files for some reason. Mostly tv episodes I also noticed I with the files that don't work I can't see file details like codec resolution enz... I don't think its a permission problem sins I put on permissions manually and I don't find that error in the logs.

    Google Drive Playback 'Please Help'

    Hi All, I am really hoping that somebody can help me out. I have a VPS set up and tbh the spec is pretty low so i wanted to upload my media to my VPS and then sync to google drive. Once synced to google drive, 'The Plan' was to get emby to only allow playback of google drive links. I have managed to get everything set up and whilst at work today i was testing everything from the office and everything was working perfectly. For those that dont know how i achieved this i done the following: 1. synced all my media to google drive with the following criteria. a. Set profile to baseline b. quality to custom c. MBps set to 30mbps 2. I then set the playback setting under User Settings > Playback to 30MBps 3. I set the maximum bitrate Dashboard > Playback > Streaming to 100MBps 4. Disabled playback of media that requires transcoding in the user account settings. (I think that was everything) Now with this setup i managed to play back the media in a Google chrome browser and every time it played perfectly from Google Drive. I came home two hours later and now it wont play from Google Drive :/ I am also using the Kodi Addon (Wrong place to mention it i know) and that wint play a stream full stop. I know plenty of people have mentioned streaming from google and stuff like that but i am really keen to get this to work, there doesn't seem to be a lot of talk about it and if anyone can help me i would greatly appreciate it. Starting to feel like i am going around in circles. Any help. from anyone would be a lifeline. Thanks Mike
  10. Hi guys, Tonight while playing a TV show using Emby addon, with direct streaming over HTTPS from Emby server, the playback stopped several times and went back to the episode selection. This happened to me at least 4-5 times in a 1hr episode. Waiting a few seconds and pressing <enter> on the episode, will resume playback most of the times but sometimes it will just restart playback from the beggining and I had to FF to the point when playback stopped. Emby server version: 3.0.5713.2 (latest beta) Emby Kodi addon version: 1.0.35 In the Kodi log I keep getting: ERROR: /storage/.kodi/addons/script.module.requests/lib/requests/packages/urllib3/util/ssl_.py:90: InsecurePlatformWarning: A true SSLContext object is not available. This prevents urllib3 from configuring SSL appropriately and may cause certain SSL connections to fail. For more information, see https://urllib3.readthedocs.org/en/latest/security.html#insecureplatformwarning And everytime that playback stops: ERROR: CCurlFile::FillBuffer - Failed: Timeout was reached(28) NOTICE: CCurlFile::FillBuffer - Reconnect, (re)try 1 ERROR: CCurlFile::FillBuffer - Failed: Timeout was reached(28) NOTICE: CCurlFile::FillBuffer - Reconnect, (re)try 2 ERROR: CCurlFile::FillBuffer - Failed: Timeout was reached(28) ERROR: CCurlFile::FillBuffer - Reconnect failed!

The network is solid too, I'm using a wired connection. Plus I never have this kinds of problem before without using the Emby addon (direct NFS play), or using it with Emby addon direct play/local paths (using NFS too). I don't have time to check direct stream over HTTP tonight but I will do it tomorrow to verify if the problem is in any way related to the protocol in use. One last note: in the addon setting I had defined the IP address of the server to connect to, not the name, but the server certificate CN value holds the server fqdn instead. Maybe the HTTPS warning in Kodi logs but also on server logs is related to that? Thanks in advance for your help. kodi.log.gz
  11. This is a request from my wife, who likes Plex better because you can select the audio track and subtitles before launching the movie. I like MBT better as an all-in-one solution to Plex's more limited capacity, but I have to hand this one to her: that feature really is nice when dealing with a lot of foreign-language content.

    Emby Error

    Emby threw out an error: Cannot handle exception "Job". Shortly after, all video playback stopped. I'm using the most recent beta. To fix this issue: Do NOT reset the server. Go to task manager and kill the task "ffmpeg.exe". After that, restart the server. Not killing the transcoding will disable all access to the web interface, via emby app or localhost.
  13. Hi, Been having issues with playback stutter, testing below. I'm not sure if its time for an upgrade or if this is a fault that can be resolve, read on and you decide. Test has been performed on a complete fresh install of Windows 7 64 bit SP1 with all updates and all drivers up to date. Emby server: Version 3.0.5597.1 Using Inerstellar 1080p MKV for test file. When running the file through Emby classic (classic is located on the same PC as the Emby server), CPU resources are barely used and video runs great: when running through web browser on Emby sever, CPU usage spikes with ffmpeg.exe and video stutters. Video is running at the highest framerate of 30mbs, but ihave tried various framerates and it has no affect. Logs are attached in case this is a fault. PC specs ( dont laugh, this PC has treated me well) Intel core quad q9400 2.66 8 gig ddr2 Amd radeon hd6450 I guesss there are 2 questions here: 1. Since Emby classic runs fine, why does the Emby Browser browser not, or seem resource hungry when playing the video file? 2. Will upgrading my hardware resolve this? Really want to know before i throw money at new hardware. Thanks for you time and opinions in advance. server-63566439170.txt transcode-0d89b082-efbe-46ac-b6de-1383e5333320.txt transcode-5ec95818-965a-454d-bcc8-cebe6c04914b.txt transcode-16e6db7b-51fa-4ae5-9869-ad6fd5ff62b6.txt transcode-4091e784-c5a9-455e-8f9e-9d4a07bfb5ec.txt transcode-98716041-bb5e-4bba-8c1e-3cf98e91e2a5.txt transcode-af82c4cb-7c42-42ec-a5c7-933ccdec84d7.txt

    Limited Bandwith

    Hello @all, I have an Upload speed of 6mbps but Emby only uses 4mbps no matter what transcoding and playback settings I choose. So, I tried a lot, including VPN access to the LAN, prioritisation of process and traffic but nothing worked so far. The google chrome browser is the culprit, it uses only half of the available bandwith of the media browser server! When using firefox it uses the whole bandwidth and so I have no annoying stuttering anymore. Anyone here who had the same problem? Thanks @EmbyTeam - You are the best!

    Stuttering playback in IE

    Hi After recently updating Emby server, playback via IE on my Xbox one has started to stutter. I have tried all of the available quality settings but they make no difference. The audio is fine but the video stutters constantly. Running the latest stable server release on a windows 8.1 pc. Can anyone help? I've a grumpy 4 year old that wants to watch her films! Cheers Si
  16. I've been trying to get this to work now for a few weeks. Hate to compare to the "other" media server out there, Plex, but this resume function kinda has me scratching my head. It seems to me the way it should work, as it does on the other tool, is when say a video, be it TV, Movie, whatever, is started on the Android App or in a browser, the server should remember the spot where the video was stopped, then no matter how long it is later, I should be able to pick up right back at that same spot, aka, Resume, correct? In Emby, I start a video playing on Android, then it does indeed show up in the Resume category in the browser with the green bar indicating how much is left to view, I select Resume for playback, and without fail it goes back to the beginning of the video. I hate to sound like I'm complaining, because I truly find the convenience of either of these media server tools to be mind blowing, and Emby has some great stuff going for it over Plex, except this one thing has been bugging me, and as a supporting member of the community/tool, I'd really like to have this aspect functioning. I've attached an image of my Playback/Resume settings. Maybe I'm missing something completely obvious. If so, any thoughts? Thanks! Brandon
  17. Here's what I think is a simple question. Is it possible to use Emby to host a multi-room audio playback system using DLNA speakers (like the Pioneer XW-SMA1-K)? It would be great if I could have several of these speakers around the house and from the music section of Emby simply select "Play to XX device". If this is possible, I'm thinking I would then be able to play different tracks to different speakers, which would make this a great alternative to Sonos. Is anyone using Emby for something like this, or have a better solution?

    Movies Won't Play On iPads (with app)

    I really hope that someone can help. I've used MB3 since about January and had no issues until a month or two ago. I use MB3 primarily to watch my movies (mp4/m4v) on the iPads via the media browser app (latest update). Previously, I had no issues watching movies both within my network and externally. Then, all of the sudden, playback stopped working on most movies and I can't figure out the cause. I have an iPad 2 (iOS7) and an iPad Mini (iOS8) and both have same issues. I am able to see the library and select the movie, but the movies just won't load. Just get the spinning wheel and sometimes I have to manually kill the app to get out of it. It doesn't happen with all movies, but it happens with most. To clarify, if a particular movie doesn't work, it never works and if a movie works, then it always works. Server (Version 3.0.5395.0) is on a Windows 7 64bit machine. If I use Safari to access the server, I am able to play all the movies fine. I am okay with doing this but that process is not so easy for the other people in the house. I've uninstalled the app and MB3 Server and started from scratch but had no luck. I love this program when it works and I really hope that someone can help me with this. Attached is the log that I think that you need. I looked at the transcoding logs (I enabled them) but it doesn't create a log when movies fail on the iPad; it doesn't get that far. server-63549186123.zip
  19. Have an external family member trying to use the PS4 web browser which appears to be working pretty well except for one thing. When trying to maximize the video playback it doesn't appear to do anything and leaves the url bar showing in the web browser. Using other video websites on the device such as youtube allows the device to full screen correctly and removes the url bar. Not sure if there is any developers or other testers out there with a PS4 that could test this as I don't have this device directly in front of me that's about all the feedback I can report.
  20. Hey there, I just wanted to say that the new update to the android app looks great. However, it used to work beautifully for me without issue but after the update playback won't start for any media types; movies or music. I also tried the web app on my ANdroid and transcoding will begin but playback will not start. This all started after the most recent updates. I will be happy to attach any logs you need. Also a family member that access my server over the web via a roku said that they couldn't get a movie to start either. I'm not sure if the two issues are related or not. Thanks in advance for the help!
  21. The ability to select a position in any season for Television and be able to "Play Next Continuously". This ability doesn't seem present in current MBT, I see no mention of this anywhere nor do I even seem to find anyone even asking about it. But it would be nice to set constant playback for TV and let it roll while doing other things.

    In the new player UI the end of the timeline shows the the time I started watching the video, not the time left in the video, like the old player. Is there a way to determine time left in a video in the new player? As far as I can tell, I get the time elapsed on the left, the actual time (i.e. 7:40) of day I started the video, but not an estimated end time (as is shown in some screenshots) or time left in the video. That would be really helpful, as we use that all the time. Another odd thing - I'm watching mostly standard mkv files, but so far none of them saves the spot at which I stop a video. Resume never shows as an option after I stop playing a video, and if I play again after I've stopped, it starts at the very beginning again. Am I missing something? I'm using this on a Windows 7 system, if that makes any difference? Thanks! Eddie
  23. (I originally posted this on the old support forums for MB2 but I think it's still relevant info. Hopefully it can get added to the tutorials.) If you're like me, you use MB over your XBox 360 and if you're like me you've had nothing but issues with your MKV files especially as of late. These are my finds and they are based upon the fact that you have a properly installed MB and are already capable of watching some MKV files on your XBox, these fixes are only to correct specific issues. ***Problem #1*** "ARGH! My MKV plays but it's stuttering like crazy."* (Jerky video playback) ***Solution:*** This is most likely caused by either subtitles or menus added to the MKV file. To correct this. Download MKVToolnix and use mkvmerge.exe to remove the subtitles and menus like this; - Open mkvmerge GUI and load your problem MKV - Uncheck the boxes next to any subtitles or menus. - Make sure the check marks next to the Video and Audio stream are still checked and hit "Start Muxing" The resulting file should play with no issues at this point. ***Problem #2*** "OMFG WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS STUPID THING?!?!? I have audio but no video.* (Audio is playing fine but the screen is black) ***Solution:*** Don't know how or why but this fixes it; - Open mkvmerge.exe and load your problemed MKV (mkvmerge.exe is a part of MKVToolnix) - Click on your video stream under "Tracks, chapters and tags:" - Click on the "Extra Options" tab and for "Compression" select none. Do the same as step 3 for the audio stream. - Make sure the check marks next to the Video and Audio stream are still checked and hit "Start Muxing" The resulting file should play with no issues at this point. ***Problem #3*** "Ok I've tried everything and nothing works. 'Bounces head off desk'."* (No worries, you're not alone.) ***Solution:*** You unfortunately may need to re-encode your video files. This isn't as scary as you might think and as long as you're running a decent computer it shouldn't take more than a couple hours to re-encode your file. Here's what to do; - Grab a program called Handbrake and a program called MediaInfo and install them. When installing MediaInfo select "Text" for Output format. Once you've installed Handbrake change the "Priority level" to Normal in options under the "System and Logging" tab. - Drag and drop your video file onto the MediaInfo icon and remember one bit of info, under the video section, "Bit rate" - Now drag and drop your video file onto the Handbrake icon and change the "Output Settings" to "MKV File" then reference the following links to set the rest of the settings. Video Tab, Audio Tab, Advanced Tab - With all these settings set I recommend saving the profile for future use. Then the only thing you need to set each time is the "Bit rate" on the "Video" tab. - Press "Start" and wait for your encode to finish. I strongly recommend leaving your computer alone until it's done. (If you use my settings exactly, you will see no difference in the video quality of your file and it will play perfectly on the XBox.) *If none of this works for you, maybe you've found a new problem for me to beat my head against the wall about. lol Post it in here and I'll try to help you.* **My Setup Is** - Intel i5-3350p - 16gig of ram - 20TB Raid 0 (Where all my videos are stored) - 256GB SSD (Where Windows/MB3 are stored) - Win 8.1 Pro 64-bit - Shark007 Standard Codecs (32bit and 64bit v1.7.6 at time of posting this) - XBox 360 (I do not use Transcoding and all files play over the 360) - MB3/MB3 Classic - Current Release I find it doesn't matter what bit rate your files are at or size. I play files well over 7GB on my xbox with 5.1 audio with no issues. Make sure you have the "Optional Media Update" update found in the xbox live market place installed on your xbox it allows for AAC audio and a few other things it doesn't talk about.
  24. I'd like to request an option to allow videos to keep playing one after another rather than stopping after each video. I want to select the first video and then have it keep playing until the last episode in the season or folder because i may have already watched the previous episodes. Thanks for your consideration!

    Flickering in full screen mode

    Hi I have a problem with Media Browser Theater version 3.0.5168.25066 (although I have seen the problem on and off for a while). When playing videos in full screen it plays with a flickering effect that isn't present when not in full screen mode. Server log (if this is worth anything): https://www.dropbox.com/s/5c8g7ed0ywpdedu/server-63528945486.log Thanks for your time and help
