  1. My Emby server works fine, but often I have buffering issues where it takes forever for a movie to load, and sometimes it doesnt even load at all. I just see the circle wait symbol keep spinning. A lot of my movies are 1080p, but I change the transcoding to 720p with 4MB/s. It improved the playback and loading speed somewhat, but sometimes the movie just doesnt load at all. Standard definition tends to load and play much better. Skipping to certain time points in a movie almost always causes the Emby client crash, and I have to restart the box. Im looking into options to improve my setup, and identify where the bottleneck is. I run my Emby server on Ubuntu 18.04 on an Intel NUC with i5 processor, 8gb RAM. The box is connected to my WIFI router via ethernet cord. My movies are stored on a 4GB portable SSD external hard-drive (connected via USB 3.0). I always set my CPU freq to Performance (2.7ghz). My Emby client is on an X96 android box connected to my TV via HDMI. The box connects to my WIFI via the wifi 2.4 ghz. My WIFI has 5ghz option, but my android box does not. If I was to replace anything, I'd get a new box with 5GHz wifi option to increase the bandwidth as I think this is the bottleneck culprit, although, I do sometimes get the same buffering issues when playing from my web browser on my laptop, which is connected by ethernet cord to the router, so the wireless transmission may not be the only issue. But for the time being, are there options in in the transcoding that I can utilize to speed up to the data transfer? - My NUC box has Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640. What hardware acceleration options would I have? - Would increasing Transcoding thread count help? - Would changing the H.264 encoding preset help? - Are there any options on my Android client that I can tinker with to increase loading speed and fix buffering issues?
  2. I recently downloaded Emby (love the software) and its great. Works just like I expected to stream mkv anime files. Everything worked perfectly for about a week and then not so much. All of my media players, Roku, Opera (on computer), Firefox (on computer), Chrome (on computer), and my DLNA Smart Tv does not work. Specifically whenever I try to play a file on the Roku (the roku 3) it tries to transcode then just hangs (the green bar loading bar disappears). I cannot access the DLNA via my Smart Tv. Whenver I try to play via any of my browsers I get the "no compatible streams" message for every one (pictures attached). The only device I own that seems to work is my Galaxy Note 5 through the Emby app. It works perfectly through there. As I test I converted an anime file (one specifically is 10bit down to 8bit) and that works no problem. But it still makes no sense because the other files worked just fine when I first installed Emby. Basically, I need to figure out if I need to convert all my files or if there is another issue on the server I am not aware of. Not sure if I gave enough information but I also attached the logs for server and transcode. Hopefully this helps.

    Server fails on trancoding audio

    Hey, I'm still learning Emby, moving away from Plex. I don't seem to be able to sync any audio to my phone. Whatever the settings (bitrate), transcoding fails (whether from FLAC or MP3, whether from playlist, album or an individual song). I'm attaching a log. I'm on Ubuntu 18.04, the latest emby server as of now (Version 3.6.0.55 beta). There's some problem here: [NULL @ 0xff2fc0] Unable to find a suitable output format for '/var/lib/emby/sync/12/41/f9683eab-6e45-4945-ba8b-462fffdcf8dc' /var/lib/emby/sync/12/41/f9683eab-6e45-4945-ba8b-462fffdcf8dc: Invalid argument Emby-log.txt
  4. Hi: I find a weird probelm of hw transcoding rotated video. All video with rotation 0 can be transcoded well and all video with rotation 90 or -90 are failed. Then I did a test. I choosed one failed video with rotation 90, and set its rotation to 0 by exiftool manualy. As expected, the failed video was hw transcoded normally. My server is intel nuc 7pjyh and os is ubuntu 18.04. The logs of the test were attached. ffmpeg-transcode-7ade3475-3912-4033-b2df-d962bf76eba2.txt ffmpeg-transcode-34fdd1dd-d86f-45a6-97b3-b938b0e85038.txt

    Why does transcoding "disable itself"?

    Hi guys, My emby install occasionally disables codecs from transcoding "by itself". 2 days ago, I configured my server to transcode H264, HVEC, and VC1, but today, all codecs are unchecked, under transcoding settings. Is there a known reason why this would happen? Thanks! D
  6. First off, I do not hold anyone accountable except myself for these errors until proven otherwise. I have tried everything I can think of and read all sorts of different "solutions" for problems similar, yet never resolved. So I am here to ask/beg for some additional guidance. When my Emby (3.4.0 - 3.5.2) server is trans-coding a video file, I will get these HTTP Response ms. spikes that I just cannot explain. When I stream without trans-coding I DO NOT experience this issues that I am aware of. This is only during trans-coding. Internal External Trans-coded Internal This is what I have running. Intel i7-4770s 3.1Ghz 4-Core (8-Core with HT) (stock no OC) (2) 8GB DDR3 1333 1.5v C:\ 120 GB SSD M.2 - OS WIN10 Pro x64 running Emby Server D:\ 120 GB SSD 6GB SATA - Trans-Code Directory (manual setup) (2) Realtek PCIe GbE Family Controller Driver 10.28.615.2018 (updated when started having this issue) FIREWALL is DISABLED in Windows 10 \\Drobo5n\Data - Direct Share in Emby (movies, songs, tv shows) Cisco RV325 Gateway/Switch Wireless Unifi AP-AC-LR ATT - Fiber 1Gbps Charter - Cable 150/25Mbps -------------------------- Ways I've tested this. Local Network: I copied a movie, can be any movie, but this one is libx265 at roughly 5k to the local D: drive on the server. Trans-coding from the local D: drive would allow me to bypass the drobo5n as the possible problem and most of the network for the initial tests since we are dealing with basically lag spikes and reads and writes. I set the max threshold for steaming at 3Mbps (for testing) forcing even on the local network that the file played had to be trans-coded. Threads is set to max (8 total), Path is set to D:\Emby a empty SSD drive, Volume 1, H264 Encoding Fast, CRF 23, Allow subtitle extraction on the fly (set on or off does not change anything). I get ms spikes and the movie will eventually time out on the Emby client on a Amazon Fire-Stick. Client will time out also on a iPad running IOS 11.4.1, iPhone running 10.3.3. Anything on the local network having the movie trans-coded will get ms spikes and eventually time out. Trans-coded to the WAN: Essentially the same setup, however I have substituted the Cisco RV325 for a HP 2530, no changes. I removed the internal network as a factor and placed my ATT fiber connection into pass-thru mode and ran it directly to the emby server Ethernet interface 1 using all of AT&T's settings including a static IP. Same result with ms spike over 30000ms I did the same thing with the Charter connection and achieved the same results. Yes, all network cables have been checked and replaced in some form or fashion. Other than reformat a very pristine install of Windows 10, that is completely patched thru ver. 1803 OS Build 17134.254 I am not sure what could be causing this. I have also tried Intel Quick Sync under Hardware Acceleration and it made no difference if I got a HTTP-Response ms spike. Anyone got a idea on what is causing this? I would like to figure out why the HTTP Response 200 or 204 or 500 just seems to die and then comes back 30000ms later. Hopefully its something dumb I have done and just can't see/find. -jack embyserver.01.txt embyserver.02.txt ffmpeg-transcode-3a894504-e98f-4318-a42c-c343840d0d23.txt ffmpeg-transcode-7e725ccc-cf04-4617-b922-019e3c9454ed.txt
  7. I have an issue with emby. When I play a movie remotely it has to be transcoded most of the times because I've set a remote bandwith limit to 4,5 Mbps. The problem is that the client isn't buffering correctly/enough when watching a transcoded video. For example I start a movie and pause it, the buffering stops after about five seconds. I monitor the network traffic with iftop and I can see it in the client too, as kodi and emby clients show a grey bar indicating the buffering progress. With directplay it's all fine. It buffers minutes or even the whole video depending on the client and it's buffering with a higher speed than the bitrate. In kodi for example, it completely ignores the settings of buffersize and speed(readfactor) when transcoding on the opposite to directly play where it does what it's supposed to do. The whole problem with this is that when a short interrupt or bandwith shortage occurs the playback stops. Instead the client could have used the extra bandwith to fill it's buffer. This issue happens with all clients I've tested so far. My upload should be plenty with 40 Mbps. Is this behaviour intended? In my opinion transcoding is mostly used on remote connections and there is always a buffer needed opposed to direct play which is mostly used at home. The transcoding is more than fast enough by the way. It usually transcodes with 3x speed or faster.

    Theater 3.0.2 and transcoding

    Am beginning to wonder if desktop Theater 3.0.2 is transcoding stuff it used to direct play. One of the midgets was watching Peaky Blinders S04E01 on his laptop using 3.0.1 and am pretty sure dashboard said it was direct playing. Now he's watching S04E03 using 3.0.2 and it says its transcoding. It says media bitrate exceeds limit. Dashboard says its running at 4.7Mbps and am using ethernet. In the logs over the last day or two it plays Ep1 and Ep2 OK and for Ep3 it starts using ffmpeg... embyserver-63671097600.txt embyserver.txt ffmpeg-transcode-e55b63d9-3480-483c-881a-9215573d452a.txt

    Server crash on media playback

    So for a little while I have been having issues playing movies, they will play for a few minutes then stop and the server will physically shutdown requiring a manual reboot. This does not seem to happen with tv shows but only movies. I also cannot get it to stop transcoding everything. I have a samsung smart tv 2014 running the emby app. I have also tried casting from an android phone and tablet to a chromecast or to the tv directly but all result in transcoding. I even tried using a ps4. I've attached the logs of the most recent incident but every movie I have tried to play recently does the same thing. ServerLog1.txt ServerLog2.txt TranscodingLog.txt

    NVENC Transcoding Not Doing Anything

    Hi all, I recently migrated my Emby server from a VM to a physical server so that I could take advantage of NVENC transcoding using a graphics card. My physical server is running Emby 3.3.1.0-68.1 (latest from the repo), CentOS 7, and an nVidia GeForce GTX 950, with the latest nVidia drivers installed. I enabled the hardware accelerated transcoding from the admin settings: Unfortunately this has no effect. When I play back a video, it's still transcoding using the CPU. This is obvious both due to the CPU usage and because nvidia-smi shows no encoder usage. [root@triton ~]# nvidia-smi -q -d UTILIZATION ==============NVSMI LOG============== Timestamp : Sun Aug 12 22:03:23 2018 Driver Version : 390.77 Attached GPUs : 1 GPU 00000000:17:00.0 Utilization Gpu : 0 % Memory : 0 % Encoder : 0 % Decoder : 0 % GPU Utilization Samples Duration : Not Found Number of Samples : Not Found Max : Not Found Min : Not Found Avg : Not Found Memory Utilization Samples Duration : Not Found Number of Samples : Not Found Max : Not Found Min : Not Found Avg : Not Found ENC Utilization Samples Duration : Not Found Number of Samples : Not Found Max : Not Found Min : Not Found Avg : Not Found DEC Utilization Samples Duration : Not Found Number of Samples : Not Found Max : Not Found Min : Not Found Avg : Not Found [root@triton ~]# What's frustrating is, during my testing I had previously installed Emby 3.5.2.0 from the RPM download, and I did the same steps, and transcoding was working and I saw encoder usage on nvidia-smi. Unfortunately because I migrated my metadata and users from another server running the repo version, my past attempt to migrate from 3.3 to 3.5 failed probably due to differences in the file structure, so that's why I'm still running 3.3 (the latest from the repo). I'm not sure if my problem is because of 3.3 or because of something sticking in the configuration due to the migration or something.

    Unknown encoder when transcoding

    I get the following error when transcoding: Unknown encoder 'ac3' How would I go around adding this encoder(and any others that may be missing, that I haven't found out about)? Full log: https://gist.github.com/CtrlAltDefeat94/c19a1f36fe2653ddb11e491ca748f7df
  12. I met a situation that my server can transcode 4K HEVC video to 1080P smoothly (40~80fps) , but cannot when subtitle enabled (15fps) After the investigation, I found the difference of ffmpeg commond is the filters. The original filter is -filter_complex '[0:8]scale=3840:1604:force_original_aspect_ratio=decrease;[0:0]overlay,scale=trunc(min(max(iw\,ih*dar)\,1920)/2)*2:trunc(ow/dar/2)*2' I tried to learn what does this mean, then figured out that the subtitle steam first converted to a 4K size steam and overlay with the original, finally converted to 1080P, Then I tried to change this filter to -filter_complex '[0:8]scale=1920:802:force_original_aspect_ratio=decrease;[0:0]scale=trunc(min(max(iw\,ih*dar)\,1920)/2)*2:trunc(ow/dar/2)*2;overlay' that first convert the original video and subtitle to 1080P, and overlay them together rerun the command, and it works, fps is around 37. I checked the output ts files, they contains the subtitle I want. Do you think this is possible to do? Thanks.
  13. Hi emby Team, I testet as lot and want to describe a problem in detail that really keeps me away from using the emby app of my LG65OLED C7D. I already know that the emby app encodes all audio tracks that are not the first/default audiotrack of a mkv. But... emby also encodes the first/default audiotrack if this is Dolby TrueHD/Atmos. Why? and that leads to the/my problem: everytime the emby app starts a ffmpeg process to transcode a audio track (for the none default audio track or and thats a much bigger problem... for Dolby TrueHD Tracks) the video begins to stutter... plays for a few seconds than stocks for a few seconds and so on - til the end of the movie :-( ) because many of the 4K remuxes have a Dolby TrueHD/Atmos default track, they are unwatchable via the emby app. 1. the problem is reproducable everytime 2. the problem only exists with 4K material (UHD Remuxes) 3. it's not a problem of hardware limitation of the emby server (CPU is 70% idle, gigabit LAN, HDD...) 4. it doesn't matter what kind of audio is being encoded (Atmos, DTS, DD5.1, DTSMA, DTSHD...) 5. emby dlna plays fine those files because it's playing the files without encoding the audio summarized: audio encoding on 4k remuxes in any way leads to video stuttering! possible solutions: - stop encoding audio tracks other than the default (like DLNA does) or - make TrueHD tracks playable without transcoding (direct play/passthrough) or - fix the problem that causes the video stuttering when transcoding audio in 4K movies any questions? don't hesitate to contact me ;-)
  14. Hi all, Sorry if this has been posted before but is there away to force transcoding on low resolution videos. Direct play is pixelated, Have tested network works great, problem seems to be the player on android tv Cheers for your help

    AMF transcoding problem

    Hello. First of all, I apologize for my English (I'm Italian). I write here because I have a problem with transcoding. I have a system based on APU AMD Ryzen 2400G (VEGA 11 video card, lastest driver), windows 10 pro 64bit (with lastest update), 16GB ram, etc. With none of my files (all HEVC) I can make transcoding work. The encoding in h264 works (in the task manager I see that the video card is engaged at about 20%, the encoding section is 50% engaged) while the decoding is not (the decoding section remains at 0% while the cpu with video in 4k goes to 70 %). I have already changed ffmpeg by putting a version with enabled -amf. The same videos are easily decoded by video card watching them with vlc, mediaplayer, etc. I enclose the two logs. The file in 4k is a 10bit HVEC from around 50Mbps, 1080p is a simple 8bit and 8Mbits HEVC movie. Thanks for your help. 4k.txt 1080p.txt
  17. Need a little help here. I'm very much enjoying Emby, but I'm having issues when watching movies in the browser (updated Chrome v67...). I look forward to working while playing a movie on a spare monitor. Some movies play very well with DirectStream while others are almost unwatchable when transcoding. I'm trying to figure out what's triggering the transcoding/preventing DirectStream. Some hopefully helpful info All video files are .mkv (ruling out .iso incompatibility in browser play) My blu ray copies all use DirectStream - ruling out server hardware, bandwidth, quality settings, 5.1 conversion to 2.0, and other potential bottle necks when playing lower quality/non-blu ray content I thought it might be subtitles, but transcoding continues even after turning off subtitles Below is my 'stats for nerds'; attached is my transcoding log Happy to re-convert files so that Emby is happy and defaults to DirectStream. Thank you! emby transcode log.txt
  18. So, lately I've been using NVENC with a crf of 18, and the ultrafast preset. Most of the time this seems to be fine, but sometimes video's will just start glitching. This is usually the case with videos with AAC audio. So, I heard QuickSync is more reliable, but doesn't this run entirely on the CPU? I prefer encoding on the GPU, since it's stronger than my CPU. Anyways, I'd like to know what settings I should use. I don't really mind a little quality loss, just nothing too severe, but what I find most important is that every video plays back without any glitches, and that the encoding process is fast. My specs: 8GB RAM i5-4440 CPU GTX 970 GPU
  19. I have an internet channel plugin that I'm not able to avoid transcoding videos (on server 3.4.1), maybe I'm missing something? ffmpeg-transcode-58b79aa4-3268-441a-bb6c-95f630a633a3.txt ffmpeg-transcode-68e19ad8-17bf-4af0-a6e7-4577d860b635.txt ffmpeg-transcode-cad58fff-b029-4a1f-a144-ea839ce48467.txt
  20. Dear, I trying many configuration on my emby installed on a i5 nuc with 8gb DDR3 Video files are stored into a Drobo. No problem with h264 but i'm struggling with HEVC H265 encoded files they freeze, sometimes even start or lag with audio and so on By your opinion what's the suggested configuration in trascoding option for HW acceleration? There other options i can manage to get better results? I'm actually running on Intel Quicksynk Thank you in advance Regards
  21. Hi, I am hoping someone can help me out - either from an understanding pov or how to set it up correct. What I am trying to achieve is the same movie in multiple resolutions & bitrate. From what I have read, it *sounds* like "Folder Sync" should do what I need. Note, I am a premiere customer so I have access / can use the plugin. Folder Sync on the wiki page states the following (https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/Sync): Folder sync allows you to copy content to folders and external hard drives, for backup as well as archiving in multiple resolutions. When content is archived in multiple resolutions, Emby apps will automatically choose the version that is most efficient for them. This will help relieve stress on your server's CPU. So, given the above, is my assumption correct, i can have multiple versions of the same file ? If so, that is excellent news, but leads me to my next question. I believe I have set it up correct. I have a show which i downloaded that is uhd (?) 3840x2160 h256. Unfortunately, most of my hardware can't direct stream it and transcoding it brings my server to its knees. I want to keep the high res file because at some point i will get new hardware but I may not be able to get the high res file. Again, from reading above, it sounds like i can keep the high res file in my main library and "sync" it to another folder on the server with lower specs and emby will play from that folder for my hardware.... unfortunately, that doesn't happen. I have sync'd the movie - 1920x1080, h264. The movie was sync'd to a folder on the sever. At this point, when i go to play the show, it never chooses the transcoded file and always transcodes the high res hevc file... this is not what I was expecting. The bit rate i chose for the transcoded file was 25 mbps. The client, I initially had set to auto but that always picked the uhd version. Ok, so I tried specifying 1080p 25 mps, but it picked the hevc vesion... Ok, so set the client to 1080p 30 mpbs, it still picked the hevc version and started transcoded real time. I tried adding the "sync" folder to the my media library, even though there is no mention that is required, but it still didn't make a difference. So am i doing something wrong or am i miss understanding how this should work ? Note, looking at the transcoding file, it is indeed transcoding the hevc version. Looking at the server file, I never see it try to play back the lower res file... excerpt from log 2018-03-31 14:31:18.480 Info App: User policy for User.

  22. Hi there, I updated to the new version of the emby-Kodi plugin, today. However, an important feature seems to be broken or changed for that matter. Before the update, I clicked on a video and it was transcoded according to my settings, but now it is simply playing in the direct mode, which causes stuttering for my setup. I am using the addon mode with transcoding over the internet on a Raspberry Pi client (libreelec Krypton) in my second home. The server is located in my first home and I am using openmediavault 4 with emby 3.3.1.0 (docker). However, since the update to the new emby plugin (3.0.16) the automatic transcoding by clicking on a video is not working anymore, instead I have to start it manually over the context menu. Is there a way to set up transcoding as default for playing content again? Thx

    Transcoding

    How to leave transcoding files permanent. At the moment they are deleted in 24 hours.
  24. Good afternoon, first of all, congratulate yourself for your good work. Quick context: My library has mp3, flac and some m4a. When I synchronize mp3 I do not use transcoding, but the flac files use a lot of space on my phone and I need to convert them to mp3. Up to here everything is correct. I have the problem when I need to set the bitrate to 320Kbps. I have tried several different test and the maximum bitrate I get is 192Kbps. These are the details of the flac that I used to test: Input #0, flac, from '01 - Lone Digger.flac': Metadata: ALBUM : <I°_°I> ARTIST : Caravan Palace BPM : 122.9 DATE : 2015 GENRE : Electro Swing RATING : 5 TITLE : Lone Digger track : 01 Duration: 00:03:49.50, start: 0.000000, bitrate: 891 kb/s Stream #0:0: Audio: flac, 44100 Hz, stereo, s16 Stream #0:1: Video: mjpeg, yuvj444p(pc, bt470bg/unknown/unknown), 600x600 [SAR 300:300 DAR 1:1], 90k tbr, 90k tbn, 90k tbc Metadata: comment : Cover (front) Test 1 (Quality: Custom, Bitrate: 0.1): 2018-03-25 16:00:09.295 Info App: Bitrate exceeds DirectStream limit: media bitrate: 891336, max bitrate: 100000 2018-03-25 16:00:09.295 Info App: Bitrate exceeds DirectPlay limit: media bitrate: 891336, max bitrate: 100000 2018-03-25 16:00:09.297 Info TaskManager: Queueing task SyncConvertScheduledTask 2018-03-25 16:00:09.297 Info TaskManager: Executing Convert media 2018-03-25 16:00:09.298 Info HttpServer: HTTP Response 200 to x.x.x.x.

Maybe I'm wrong but my logic tells me that the correct behavior should follow the rules of the following table: Max bitrate: 0.1 -> transconding 96Kbps Max bitrate: 0.2 -> transconding 192Kbps Max bitrate: 0.3 -> transconding 256Kbps Max bitrate: 0.4 -> transconding 320Kbps This is the screen where I configure the custom max bitrate: Is there any way to configure the details of the transconding? Is there any way to do transconding using a bitrate of 320Kbps? Is this the correct or recommended way to use offline flac? Is it possible to add advanced options for the music transcoding? Any criticism, comment or help are welcome. Thank you very much. transcode-test1.txt transcode-test2.txt transcode-test3.txt transcode-test4.txt
  25. When I play a transcoded video, after a couple of minutes the video starts stuttering more and more and finally the app hangs. The whole android system stops to respond for half a minute before you can get back to the leanback launcher. The old developer me gets the feeling that the memory fills up until the system cant handle it no more. I have used the 'send logs' feature in the app (around 20.38 CET 2018-03-05), around the same time the app hanged and hopefully you could see something in there. I cannot find the android tv logs using ES file explorer as i cannot find the emby application folder for some reason. transcoder and system log attached. I am using a 2016 philips android tv with android 7.x Please get back to me if you want me to look into something more. server-63655874584.txt ffmpeg-transcode-a7b495be-0e27-4737-8ba9-4a20df131258.txt
