  1. I've noticed that both my Chromecast v2 and Ultra are happy to direct play multi-channel audio encoded using either Dolby Digital (AC3) or Dolby Digital Plus (EAC3). Anything else (Dolby True HD, Atmos, DTS, DTS-MA, DTS-X) gets transcoded to Dolby Digital at 384 kbit/s. I'm very impressed with the way Emby handles this - it's even smart enough to transcode EAC3 to AC3 when I turn off the AV receiver (and it's just the TV doing the audio decoding). I'm less impressed that it needs to do this at all for the Chromecast Ultra: why do Google think it's OK to market it as 4K HRD capable and yet only

    I got a surprise...

    I purchased a Dell R720 server to use as a hypervisor. One of the VM’s I plan on running will be used for Emby Server. This Dell came with an Nvidia Tesla M2070Q graphics card installed, which was a surprise. I did plan on seeing how Emby ran on the VM first and if needed I would passthrough a graphics card to take over the transcoding roll. Does anyone know how the Nvidia Tesla M2070Q would perform, or should I just sell it on and use a more suitable card if needed? Transcodes would possible max at 4 streams and I’d ideally like to start using 4k content, so assume 4x 4k transcodes.
  3. Hi So I have a remote server connected with gigabit connection, at home I'm using the Emby app on LG 65C9 TV running WebOS 4.5. Use the server with UHD movies mainly containing HD audio like DTH-HD MA, Dolby True HD or event Dolby True HD Atmos. The problem is that on this Emby player app, in the settings, the maximum quality we can set for audio (with internet stream) is 2Mbps and for certain audio tracks this is not enough hence the server is forced to transcode / downgrade the audio to AC3 format with such a low bitrate... Example yesterday I did several tests with various m
  4. Hey guys Recently moved to Emby from Plex. You guys did a really great job with that, I really love it and prefer to Plex which is not stable enough in my opinion... Though I'm missing one important feature that Plex has : Favorising direct play / direct stream while you can also select "auto" setting. This means that if Direct Play / Direct Stream is not possible for a user connected to the server (due to slow internet connection, or invalid format etc...) then the Player will automatically select the best quality available for this user. BUT it will always favorise Direct Play

    Playback Issue - .MKV files

    Forgive me if this is related to transcoding & has been discussed in another thread. I'm not completely sure it has anything to do with the file format, but it does seem to be an issue I've noticed (so far) to be affecting only .mkv files. I'm not able to start watching a video from the middle or anywhere other than the beginning, and pretty much any hopping around will cause the video to crap out. Is this just a limitation of the format, a bug somewhere in Emby Mac OS server, or perhaps connected to some kind of corruption or defect in some of the individual .mkv files I've collected or c
  6. I'm sure there are scripts or maybe an add-on someone can point me to in the meantime? Has it ever been considered to put in a feature to transcode recordings as they are recording? For example if I record a 1HR HD program, recordings can get upwards of 6GB. If I could set a bitrate to have my server transcode the recording on the fly to say 1080p 5mbps? To keep file sizes down and reduce time spent cleaning up libraries
  7. i haven't watched emby on my pc for sometime so i haven't noticed when it changed but i recall firefox used to play my videos via directstream instead of transcoding them. two things may have affected this but i am not certain: 1) recently W10 Build 1903 update (a few days old) 2) firefox v70 upgrade (maybe a month or so old)\ what is interesting though is chrome still plays via directstream. is there something i can do to force firefox or the emby server to use directstream instead of transcoding my videos?

    4K UHD playback on 720p TCL RokuTV

    I am starting to add 4K UHD (w/ or w/out HDR) titles to my library as I own a few 4K HDR TVs, tablets, & phones. However, the majority of my streaming devices are still max. 1080p or less. When attempting to playback my 4K titles, my 720p 32" TCL RokuTVs initiate playback (green progress bar on device completes and playback shows in my server Dashboard) and then show a blank screen: no picture, no sound. I can fast-forward and rewind and the video thumbnails appear to function normally. My server hardware is fairly robust and appears to be transcoding video from h.265/HEVC to h.264/AVC and
  9. I have the Emby app installed on my Shield which plays my local files easily, including my 4K files with HD audio as I direct stream. I have installed a remote server using my cloud provider to stream my media. Because it is a new server, whenever I choose it, the "trial" warning comes up so I would have to unlock / purchase. My question simply is this: Using the app as it is (trial), when I play a 4K file, it automatically transcodes (stats for nerds shows this as well as saying maximum bitrate has been exceeded). If I unlock this app, will it then direct play as with my local file

    Optimize media

    It would be nice if there were an option to optimize media with a single click (or select an option to optimize a library or a folder). Optimization would transcode the existing media into the most efficient format (whatever Emby considers most efficient, such as H.264 or H.265) keeping the original settings (size, subtitles, languages). Plex kind of does it, but it's a pain to replace the original video with the optimized one (unless you want to keep additional copies, which wastes space). (Before anyone suggests using Handrake for this, yes, it's possible to do it outside of Emby, but it wou
  11. Ive got three GPUs in my server; an intel hd 3000, ati radeon 5570, and a gtx 680. The hd3000 doesnt show up in emby, so I'm not sure if it actually does anything which is no problem, but I'm curious to see which devices are doing what in real time. Is there a way to tell which device is transcoding (and if possible which device is doing the decoding / which is doing the encoding?) A command line option would suffice, but i have half a mind to put this as a feature request for "stats for nerds" if its possible Also, there is the possibility that the CPU is doing the transcoding, w

    GPU for the HP MicroServer

    Hi All I got my hands on a very good condition HP micro server. I am planning to user Windows server 2019 on it as i am confident administering that. I know the micro-server CPU is very dated and will struggle to do the basic trans-coding., So heres my question, Can i stick a graphics card to tell emby to use that for trans-code? also, budget is tight, so what would be the cheapest graphics card i get away with 4k. most likely to be an eBay job there wont be more than 2 stream ever. thanks in advance
  13. The Nvidia Shield should be able to direct play this audio, but it is forcing a transcode due to "unsupported audio". For reference, the same file direct plays using Plex. Server version 4.1.0.16 beta, Emby Android TV version 1.6.98g. Please let me know if any other info is required here. server-log.txt shield-unsupported audio.txt
  14. So excited to have finally got my HDHomerun Connect Quattro for UK Free to Air TV installed and running with Emby Server v4.0.2. Its all working sort of... I'm on 1gb home network and via Emby Client in browser I play Live TV and stutters badly. I have it set to Auto to ensure streaming best could be, however... As you can see from above, the dashboard is show Emby is transcoding the Live TV footage from MPEG2 to H.264 and I cant seem to find a way to stop it doing and just use Direct Play. Any ideas / help appreciated ?

    QNAP, Roku Ultra, MPEG2 Woes

    Hi, all! I want to set up Emby on my QNAP NAS where I keep my media files. Currently it's running Plex without a hitch, but I just want to replace it with Emby because of the integration with TVHeadEnd. The reason for that is I want to turn my Roku Ultra into my "de-facto HTPC" (sort of). I got it all working, but have one problem: Emby insists on transcoding everything coming from TVHeadEnd from its source MPEG2 format to H.264. The problem with that that my QNAP doesn't have that much horsepower to begin with and thus starts to suffer from the extra transcoding effort. Since both t
  16. I suggest that emby server look for the full library and create a log (txt) of the files that do not work in my main render (crhomecst 2gen) and need transcoding. ej movies \ movie3.mp4 video_not_Suported movies \ heman.mp4 subtitle_not_Suported etc etc
  17. Just installed the Emby server today to give it a whirl and see if I can move away from Plex. One issue that i am experiencing is when i attempt to play a movie (Bluray backup) in the Emby app on the Nvidia Sheild that contains a True HD soundtrack, it always transcodes to DD. Dolby HD Master passes through to my audio reciever just fine. I did download the Kodi app from the playstore and install the Emby addon so Kodi could connect to my Emby server and the same move with the True HD soundtrack will pass through with no problems. I did notice that in the audio settings for the Emby app,

    HW Transcoding not working

    Hi, I'm trying to use HW Transcode without success and I need help. I'm using Debian 8 with emby server 3.2.25. I have a kernel 4.4 patched for QSV, installation is OK tests OK I have compiled ffmpeg with QSV support, tests OK My issue is when I select Intel Quick Sync or VAAPI, I have no video playback. the reason is quite simple, ffmpeg can not open /dev/dri/* as emby user the command extracted from emby's log : gives : if I cut/paste the same command and run it as root it works I have the same issue with vainfo ( gives information with root and none with
  19. Hey everybody, I keep my music in FLAC and ALAC (.m4a) files. All devices in my house (a mixture of iOS/Android apps, web clients, Roku) are able to play the FLAC files directly and the same goes for ALAC; except when I use Safari as the web client for some reason. This happens using Safari on MacOS and iOS. It would be odd if Apple's own browser didn't support Apple's own audio formats. I did a search to see if I could find a list of audio formats supported by Safari, but I found nothing. So is this simply a limitation of Safari? Thanks!
  20. Hi there, I'm new to Emby, switching over from Plex, and I run in a little problem. 1. As soon as I try to play a file with embedded ass / ssa subtitles, either on the web app or on my shield, it triggers a transcode. 2. Ok, assuming that the format isn't supported a transcode is ok, but why isn't the hw engine used? My CPU consuming runs up to 100% and this shouldn't occur while using hw transcode. (I checked the hw transcoding engine to VA API and added the emby user to the video group.) 3. As i tried to swich the audio language, from english to japanese, on this file on my
  21. Right now, every time I use Live Tv to watch something, it shows it is transcoding on the dashboard, but no indication if this is being done in hardware or not. Any way to tell easily?

  23. Hi all, I don't know if it's related to the server or the Win10 Theater (client), but when streaming in-house I typically start with direct (no transcode). I can change to a transcoded rate. a slight delay, then the stream resumes using the new (reduced) bitrate. The second time I change bitrate on the same show, it seems to hang (not resuming). The colored waiting circle keeps spinning. Sometimes I can click the back arrow (up, left) to go back, and then click play again. Sometimes, it really hangs, and I need to re-start the Theater client (waiting circle keeps spinning). T

    New users can't transcode fast enough

    I'm running - Ubuntu 16.04.5 - Emby Server Version 3.5.2.0 - Dual Xeons X5660 @ 2.80GHz - 96 GB RAM The first user I created and the one I tied to Emby premier (if that matters), can transcode a 4k 30 FPS, video no problem. If I switch users in the same browser session, same tab (Chrome or Firefox) the video plays at 12-17 fps. I've done a side by side comparison of the users with the working user and everything is the same - I even tried the "user can manage server" setting. I'm at a loss as to why this is happening. Can anyone help me out here? What more info is needed?
