  1. I have two files which for test purposes I have encoded using FFMPEG: ffmpeg -t 10 -i bunny.mp4 -map_metadata -1 -codec:v libx264 -profile:v high -level 4.0 -b:v 1000k -c:a aac -b:a 128k -ac 2 Bunny1.mkv ffmpeg -t 10 -i bunny.mp4 -map_metadata -1 -codec:v libx264 -profile:v high -level 4.0 -b:v 1000k -c:a aac -b:a 128k -ac 2 Bunny2.mp4 Bunny1.mkv seems to require transcoding to playback, where as Bunny2.mp4 does not. I understand there might be some sort of issue with Emby on the AFTVS and MKVs (which is not an issue with Kodi on the AFTVS). I don't understand why the video would be re

    Transcode yes, transcode no

    Hi, i did an interesting test tonight. When playing an mp4 (1280x720) on my android, it runs nice and smooth and no transcoding takes place. If i try to run the exact same movie on my desktop via firefox, it starts jumping and not play smoothing. I see that the transcode folder has an webm file while playing in the browser but not when playin on the android. REducing the bitrate in the web browser doesn't help. Why does Emby think it needs to transcode in web client (21" screen on pentium i5 3Ghz) and not in android (samsung galaxy 10"). THe server is install on DELL POweredge (quite o

    Custom DLNA Profile

    All, I have 90%of my movie collection in Video_TS folders which contain all of the vob, bup, and ifo files (the other 10% is in MKV, avi, or MP4). They play great on the emby mobile apps, and on the web, but they are not playing on my samsung TV's, the vobs that is. Therefore i think what i have to do is create a custom DLNA profile for my tv's, correct me if im wrong. I tried to do this for my upstairs samsung tv, but i don't even know where to begin, i tried a couple of things, but to no avail. Can someone help me get started setting up a profile that will transcode my video_ts folders/v
  4. App Description: Server Don't know the situation in other countries, but most videos in my collection have all their subs inside the e.g. mkv. Thanks to the help from @@Luke and @@ebr I finally got a clue that in Emby external subs are much more handy than the internal because they don't need to be extracted before playback starting. I'm referring to this two threads: http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/21988-default-to-external-subtitle/ http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/23769-problem-with-videos-with-subtitle/ The problem: Most internal forced subs are als

    May be transcode problem but ...

    Hi, installed Emby last night as I want to replace Plex (don't like closed source). Quite impressed up to now although still haven't managed to see one film yet. Can't see film in web client or android client, both saying "There was an error playing the video.".Music plays correctly. Emby Version 3.0.5781.0 with ffmpeg version 0.8.17-6:0.8.17-1 (basically a fully updated Debian Wheezy to a few minutes ago) Now, this I think it's a transcode problem as I see "Unrecognized option 'codec:v:0'" in the transcode log (see below). One thing that I did like of Plex is the "Direct streaming
  6. What can I say here... well its great the menus are clean and simple, in line with the fire TV sticks own so users are at home straight away Its fast and responsive and looks good on the screen But it is limited to 3GPP (.3gp) and MPEG-4 (.mp4) (video anyway) (source - https://developer.am...specifications) Any other video needs to be transcoded and when you want to watch 1080p video with 7.1 sound not even my server can do it just maxs out the CPU My server is a Fujitsu Primergy MX130 S2 2 CPU x 2.99 Ghz 32GB of RAM If you have android TV or the fire TV (not stick) then you can install VL
  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 sto

    Subtitles out of sync on transcoded media

    I have two Rokus 3 both running version 1.78. One is connected to a 7.1 amp and it accordingly passes DTS/AC3 streams to the amp. It, thus exhibits a "direct play" on almost all MKVs. The second one is directly connected to a TV set. It transcodes the same MKVs that the other plays directly. As they are both configured to the maximum 20MHz bitstream I regard this transcoding relates to the sound stream. Problem is that subtitles "arrive too early" on this second Roku. The same movies that shows correct subtitle sync on the first Roku, show them two seconds early on this device.
  9. Transcoded audio sounds wrong, almost like reverse stereo. I can't really explain it. This happened before a long time ago on 3.0.5238.39498, and it went away with an update. I just noticed that its doing it again on 3.0.5724.3 I don't want to make a new video, so I will link my old one. I just tested the video file featured in my example clip and it's back to sounding wrong. See video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vIiFOblQ6UA Media info for the source file that was demonstrated in the video I linked - as detected by media-browser: (avi) <streamdet
  10. I noticed this when I was trying to get my subtitles to only show the non-english speaking parts of the new thor movie that when I add in subtitles (whether I am using my roku to stream or the android app) it gets laggy and stutters because it is now transcoding the video and audio which I noticed on the android app. Why does it need to transcode when simply adding subtitles? It is causing my video to load incredibly slowly and sometimes it need to reload. Thanks,
  11. Here's a problem I've only experienced recently with the roku application, the version you can search for officially and install directly through the roku itself. Now it doesn't _always_ happen, sometimes it does at the beginning of some videos, sometimes partially into a video this happens. Sometimes it clears up itself and the video is watchable again, sometimes it isn't and I'm forced to exit the video and resume where it left off to continue seeing clear video. I know others experience this issue, and I even was able to capture a video of it playing a video goofy. I've attached the
  12. I previosly posted this as a question in the thread for evolving the folder sync plugin but I will post here also as an official feature request. http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/19887-help-emby-sync-evolve/page-3&do=findComment&comment=218415 I would like to see either the folder sync plugin or maybe some separeted function that would allow me to do the following: specify a folder for incoming media eg. movies and episodes specify one or several transcoding settings according to my preference have the funtion transcode the media and then move it into my media collect

    Transcode audio only

    Can we add a video pass thru option to the transcode settings? I have a roku directly connected to a TV that doesnt support DTS/DD, which unfortunately means that everything that doesnt have 2 channel audio is being transcoded. Which is virtually everything, putting my server under massive strain. If we had video pass thru and the transcoder was only downmixing the audio then I wouldnt need to use folder sync to pre-transcode everything (which is great having the option, but a bit painful).
  14. I unfortunately have this issue quit frequently. While watching a movie all is going well, and then the movie just ends. It is as if it thinks it has reached the end of the movie, as the progress is lost. I can then just go to the scene's and continue watching the rest of the movie with no issue, so not a problem with the files as far as I can tell. Server ver: 3.0.5464.40000 Watching in web client on Xbox one.

    New transcoding seems much worse

    Downloaded Emby Server 3.0.5621 Beta yesterday afternoon. There is supposed to be a new transcoding method that reduces CPU usage but it is providing poor results compared with the previous version, for me at least--when I'm watching movies that are transcoded now there are artifacts that come and go throughout the entire video which was not an issue before the server update. The CPU usage is about 30% and nothing else is running but the transcode process is no longer seamless like it was before yesterday's update.

    To transcode or not to transcode

    Hi everybody, I am running: - Emby Server version 3.0.5572.0 - Roku app version 1.87 (but I also bought Android, Windows 8 and ios apps) My Roku 3 outputs its HDMI content to a 7.2 amp with DD (AC3) and DTS support. The Roku is, thus, configured in order to pass-through audio streams to be decoded by the amp. It occurs, though, that when various movies (MKVs with DTS audio streams) are played, I get no "Direct play" but, instead, a transcoded stream. I am unable to realize why the app decides to translate these movies but this result on a big loss (surround audio is reduced to
  17. I have started to play around with the live TV element of MB using NextPVR as the back-end (I don't have Windows Media Centre so I understand this means I can't use ServerWMC?). Everything seems to work reasonably well, however I noticed that when using the MB Theatre application (streaming rate set as 15mbps) the content is always transcoded (both SD MPEG2 and HD h264) - Since we are streaming to a pretty powerful machine with all LAV filters installed, why do we have to transcode the file first?

    Stopping playback doesn't

    HI, Was just doing some testing for other purposes and have found that terminating playback via the app does not really terminate everything. Was testing out some 3D playback that ended up getting transcoding and when I hit the stop button the app return to the movie details screen and then I backed out of the app. When looking at the MBS Server details page it does not appear that anything is still being transcoded, but when I look at my external USB drive caddie I can see that the drive is still active. As well, the is still an ffmpeg process running on the server. This h
  19. I rebuilt my entire server this is a fresh install of Win 7. MB Server 3.0.5416.0 / Media Browser for Roku 1.64 External Roku connects and plays content fine, even though the server reports the user is constantly disconnecting/reconnecting. It also appears that its just dumping a bunch of tiny 15-20 sec transcode clips, the directory is currently sitting at about 700 files. I have my transcode location set to a specific path for server. Help would be appreciated to address this issue. Server Log Transcode Log
  20. Hi all, I was wondering about the plugin for xbmc. So xbmc can use mediabrowser3 as a backend for xbmc, does it offer transcoding on the fly? and how is the media shared between mb3 and xbmc, is it upnp/multicast? I'm searching for a non-upnp/multicast solution that supports transcoding on the fly and can be a media source for xbmc. thx in advance!!

    Channels Transcoding

    I just recently started playing with the channels. I have been using XBMC for years, but as I have been moving to XBMB3C, I thought that I would experiment with using MB3's TWIT and Revision 3 channels instead of the XBMC/Kodi add-ons. As I experimented, I noticed that the video playback was listed in XBMB3C as transcoding. Quick check of my server confirmed it. Thinking it might be an XBMB3C thing, I switched over to MB Theater and discovered the same thing: all channels video is being transcoded. I can't speak to the video in all of the channels, but I know that the Revision 3 feeds are

    Scalabity question

    Yes often times we direct stream the file through the server api, which as far as the client is concerned is identical to file playback through the LAN. Then other times we just do a container swap, keeping the audio/video in their original forms but just changing the container from say, mkv to mp4. These techniques are cheap and will scale to a large number of people easily.
  23. I think this is tagged correctly as a Server feature request, but it would require something on the clients too. We regularly go on long car journeys, and my kids and my wife like to watch films on their android tablets and windows laptops. Because our library is all very high quality, high bitrate stuff, and as there is no decent connection to stream them, I need to find out what they want before we leave, and then encode the file for them before we leave, and then copy it onto their individual devices. What would be really cool would be if, for example, my daughter wanted to watch

    video transcode help

    Hi All, I am having trouble getting my media to stream to my iOS mobile app. I can see the library, and when I hit play I only get a black screen. I've reinstalled MBT, and the codecs it comes with. My files are primarily .mp4. Thanks to anyones ideas!
  25. Hi, I'm looking for a suggestion on building (or repurposing) a machine. Most of the ones that I've read have been general purpose machines for a lot of things. I'm really just looking for a machine that will be able to run MB3 server and transcode and stream up to a max of 8 different movies at the same time. There will be other programs running but minor ones. Is Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 preferred? Does it matter? Clients 2-3 MBT or MBC on Local LAN - Direct Play - No transcoding 2 - Local LAN Roku 3 - Local Wireless IOS 1 - Remote Roku 2 - Remote IOS I know these might no
