  1. Is there a way to change the threshold for when to throttle transcoding when throttling is enabled? By default it looks like this is configured to 120s. I have found the xml where this setting is defined, however after modifying & saving there is no change according to transcoding logs. FYI, this is not an option from Emby management interface. Location of xml file: .../Emby-Server/Config/encoding.xml <ThrottleBufferSize>120</ThrottleBufferSize> Log Example ThrottleBySegmentRequest: RequestPosition: 00:01:03 - TranscodingPosition: 00:02:11 - ThrottleBuffer: 69s (Treshold: 120s) Please let me know if anyone can help determine if this is possible. Thanks
  2. Newly installed Nvidia Quatro K2000 in a Dell R910 - hw transcoding I just installed a Quatro K2000 2G video card into my Dell R910 into a native16x PCI-e slot. I modified the heatsink and installed a large fan to help keep it cooler and make it fit into the server case. It's staying pretty cool. Now the reason I did this was for several reasons actually. Running on a VM is not always the best approach. Having hardware support should improve performance. I want 4K movies to not skip and stutter while watching them (transcoding - usually always audio) I recently bought an HD HomeRun and want better performance (similar to 4K issues). And this has been something I have been wanting to do for a while. I would rather do this than buy a Synology or QNAP or build a dedicated workstation. All that said... not much improved after installing the card. Maybe a slight improvement, but overall I am still not happy with the implementation. Video still stutters with 4K movies - unwatchable Live TV still stutters unless I pause it for 5 seconds, play again and then it's fine - I feel like this should still not happen. This used to not happen with my 4K movies even with transcoding enabled running on a VM in vCenter on the same server without a physical video card. I am not certain what happened 3-4 years back but before that point, 4K movies played perfectly. Too hard to try and understand what changed. All I want to do is understand how to fix this moving forward. I have several devices I can test this with: Web browsers Nvidia Shield Pro LG OLED TV LG LCD TV Android Phones iPhones iPad PC / MacBook All of them give me the same results. I can provide any details needed to narrow down where the issue is and if in the end this simply is not a good setup (running on a VM with passthrough) then I will buckle down and buy a Synology of QNAP or hell even build a dedicated media box out of some older hardware using the video cards I have here at home. (spare 1030 and 1080).

    audio transcoding settings

    Newbie here, running away from Plex. Am loving Emby. I'm trying to find information and settings for transcoding. The closest I have found is here but I do not see the illustrated setting (see below) in my iOS app. Am I correct in assuming that my lossless files will be lossless in the iOS app if both the server and iPhone are on the same local wireless network? If I am on a different wireless network will it be lossless or does the server see it as a generic remote location? Where, on the server and/or iOS app, can I set preferred bitrates? IOW, I would like to possibly have higher (not necessarily lossless) bitrates even on cellular/data. My apologies if I am missing something! I've been dealing with a super mild concussion, and looking into this so much, I wonder if I am literally or figuratively cross-eyed. @cayars
  4. Some old devices support h265. So the device do direct play But it's lagging. It plays h264 well. If I want to transcode h.265 to 264, I have to decrease the quality lower than the original quality. But I don't want to lower the quality. If original bitrate is 3.4mbps, I set the quality to 3mbps. There is no difference between the two. But when original is 1.4mbps, I have to lower to 1mbps and this is huge difference as I felt. So I want the feature. Forced h.265 to h.264 transcoding without decreasing bitrate
  5. Before I start, I'll explain what I mean by "without giving any reason why" usually when it starts to transcode, it would give a reason why like this (check the blue circling) Note:- I've forcefully made this video to transcode in the above picture by reducing the bitrate so that is not a bug but in this case, it doesn't this could be a bug so I'm just reporting that Now, I have no clue as to why this video transcodes while other videos with the same format doesn't. It's definitely not the subtitles or the audio because I've reencoded the video to HEVC and the audio and subtitle plays directly. Here's the logs ffmpeg-transcode-f5e334ff-98b7-4cd7-85d5-aeab259c3705_1.txt Here's the media info mediainfo.txt And here's the sample video Flowers of Evil - S01E01 - Flowers of Evil 1 of 13 (1)-001.mkv Ran with galaxy s10 on Emby android 3.1.94

    Save transcoded videos

    Is there a way to transcode a video once and save it for future streaming instead of using the server's resources to transcode it every single time it is requested?
  8. Hi all, I have run into a rather weird issue this evening after reviewing my hardware encoder options. After seeing a remote user connecting and playing a media file that needed to be transcoded due to global bit rate limitations, I noticed that it was streaming at a rather low bitrate of ~900kbps when the global limit was set to 2.5mbps. My upload speed is more than capable of achieving this and has done so without issue in the past. I hopped onto DSM to see what was up and found my CPU usage was spiking to 99-100%, which was causing the slow down. This has never happened before and I would typically only see CPU usage of 10-20% while transcoding any file, so I thought to check my hardware acceleration options, as per the wiki suggests, to ensure nothing was switched off. I found that I still had hardware acceleration set to 'Advanced', but weirdly enough, no options appeared under 'Preferred Hardware Encoders' as they had just a week ago. See the screenshot. It is almost as though it no longer recognizes any of the hardware options for hardware acceleration on my NAS. I am stumped as to what has caused this sudden switch. My only inclination would be that it has to do with my recent upgrade from Synology DSM firmware 6.2.3-25426 Update 3 to version 6.2.4-25554 last evening. That upgrade went smoothly and nothing indicated there was an error, but this is the only major change from last week to today. I have confirmed that this occurs both for remote users and myself while local. This issue occurs on a variety of different platforms including Amazon Fire TV devices, Firefox, etc. I also confirm that the spikes completely subside once I stop playing/transcoding of media files. Direct play files are seemingly not causing spikes of this nature. My Emby Premiere license also appears to be correctly input and resolving fine. I am also running the official package, not within Docker. Any help would be appreciated so I can adjust my hardware acceleration options to not cause spikes. Included is the server, hardware, and transcoding log of a problem file. Thank you. Server Specifications: Synology 920+ 8GB Memory Firmware: 6.2.4-25554 Emby: 4.5.4.0
  9. I have quite a lot of shows that have ASS Subtitles in them. But the problem is that when I enable them my server immediately jumps to transcoding. Which sacrifice quite a lot of video quality. I have noticed that It does not do that in the mobile version.
  10. I've been waiting for this feature for a while now. I'm hopeful that it will improve video quality. and a setting for audio encoding preference would be very nice as well
  11. Hi, I'm confused and trying to understand how the bitrate chosen when downloading a video affects the resolution that the video is played at. Or even, said in another way, if I know I only want to play a downloaded video at a given resolution (ex: SD 480), how do I know which bitrate to choose? If my source videos are anywhere from 720P - 4k, how do I minimize the downloaded file? Theoretically, bitrate should impact/affect resolution, but I have read other posts in the forum which seem to indicate a different story. Is there a correlation between bitrate and resolution? Thanks, Eric
  12. Hi Guys, Just looking for a little assistance if possible. Just want to see if anyone is using the above (title) setup and if transcoding works fine. It will probably be for a max transcode of two streams at once and the rest will be direct play. Most transcodes will be 1080p but in the future maybe 1 x 4k transcode at any given time - all over local lan. I've been told it will work but always nice to ask the community for real world usage and potential issues.
  13. Hi, I have just switch to Emby and was wondering what are some good settings for Transcoding and Network? I'm using iMac to stream over wifi to LG TV. Thanks
  14. Hopefully it hasn't been asked, can't find anything in the docs Basically, I'm at home, I'm playing an episode on my Xbox and it shows as transcoding to h264 format. Does the transcoded file get saved in a cache on the Xbox so my server doesn't have to transcode it again or is it cached on the server or it has to transcode all over again every time my Xbox plays that same episode?
  15. Hi! I cannot seem to play a certain tv show on my server. I think its a transcoding problem. Any help is appreciated. Log files attached. All other tv shows and movies work perfectly! The Tv show is 1080p BluRay x265 HEVC 10bit AAC 5.1 ffmpeg-transcode-e53a9975-ecf4-43ab-ae1c-f55630df878f_1.txt

    4K HEVC & Remux plays intermittent

    I have Emby installed on my LG smart TV and on Windows 10 I use Chrome (Emby Web 4.4.3.0). My movies are all on a NAS and all devices are in the same network. When I start the app on my TV or on Chrome and select a 4K movie, it starts playing but stops after 2 seconds. Then, 6 seconds later, the movie continues to play for about 3-5 seconds and stops again. 1080p movies play without any issue and it doesn't seem to be any internet problem. I have attached the logs of a 4K HEVC movie in case it helps finding a solution to this problem. Thanks in advance, Mário embyserver.txt ffmpeg-transcode.txt

    Hardware transcoding errors

    Lately I have had issues while watching certain shows on the Roku app, with buffering every few minutes, and occasionally completely stopping with 'Too many errors to continue". I noticed that there were errors in hardware_detection files, and transcoding logs that mentioned switching to software transcoding. I also noticed that the shows mostly having issues were avi format. Research leads me to think I should use the conversion feature to pre-convert these folders. I am doing so now, and some early testing is promising. I do want to confirm that converting to the 'mobile' profile, and using 'Keep Original Quality' is a logical setup for doing this conversion. I do also use the Emby Theater to watch content on a 65" television, am I possibly degrading that by doing this conversion? Also, I suspect that this conversion is still having issues with the Hardware Transcoding, as I am still seeing a lot of logging around this as the conversion runs. I have read about setting up for hardware conversion, and have made sure to install the latest Nvidia drivers. I am attaching some logs, so if there is anything I can or should do, please help if possible.

    J4105-ITX GPU Transcoding

    Hallo liebes Forum, Ich habe Emby-Server auf dem ASRock J4105-ITX laufen, nativ unter Debian Buster. (Integrated Intel® UHD Graphics 600) Umstieg von der Docker Variante um die GraKa das Transkoding durchführen zu lassen. Leider musste ich feststellen das mit aktivem Hardwaretranskoding nahezu kein Film mehr im Browser darstellbar ist. Alles viel zu langsam und nur Aussetzer. Folgende Ansätze brachten leider keinen Erfolg: #1 RAM der GraKa auf 512 MB hoch # 2 Intel non-free Treiber Hat jemand noch eine Idee oder ist die interne GraKa einfach zu schlecht? Mittels Software Transkoding funktioniert die Wiedergabe, allerdings mit entsprechender CPU Last. Spezifikationen Board: https://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/J4105-ITX/#Specification Gruß Robert

    Switch off transcoding?

    Bear with me, I am a total newbie as far as Emby is concerned. I installed Emby on an Odroid C+, which I normally use as a general backup/DNS/DHCP server in my home network. The goal is a library of home videos to which the family has access at all times. First, I have to say that it blows me away that it just works out of the box. But I would like to not transcode videos So far I have done tests with an MP4 file I created with ffmpeg without any options: ffmpeg -i myvideo.avi myvideo.mp4. I viewed the file from a Firefox browser, on a Windows 10 PC and on an Android phone. I expected no transcoding, but I see ffmpeg using up 75% of the CPU. An MTS file (footage directly from the camera) causes a similar load. I have not been able to try my old DV avi files yet. So my initial tests show that it works, but I wonder: Is it possible to configure Emby not to transcode at all? Is it possible to configure an external viewer such as VLC? [EDIT: Yes it looks like it can be done depending on the viewing app, but I have not found if and how it's possible with the default browser app] In other words, is it possible to move the decoding load to the client side?
  21. Migrated my server to an old optiplex with an i5 4590 that has an HD 4600 with quicksync. If I throw in a Radeon RX 560 2GB, can I leverage the hardware acceleration from both the Intel iGPU and the Radeon GPU? or is it one or the other?

    Unable to stream some movies

    Hello, I've been happily using Emby (with Premiere) on a XPenology NAS for a few years now, and recently seem to have hit a bug. When I try to play some movies of my collection, I hit the "Aucun flux compatible n'est actuellement disponible." (please pardon my french setup, this would be "No available stream" or something like that in english). I looked at the attached logs, tried to launch the "actual command" and sure enough, got the same error before ffmpeg quits: Stream specifier ':3' in filtergraph description [0:3]scale@f1=width=720:height=-2:force_original_aspect_ratio=decrease[f1_out0];[0:0][f1_out0]overlay@f2=x=(W-w)/2:y=(H-h):repeatlast=0[f2_out0] matches no streams.

    Xbox 360 DLNA Profile

    Hello, i was wondering if there's a way to play media to a Xbox 360 that is not a AVI file? I'm aware that the Xbox 360 can play MP4 files, however the MP4 can not be a multi-channel file. In order for the Xbox to play the MP4 it has to have two channel audio. I'm trying to get Emby to, transcode the files to either a wma file, a multi-channel avi file or to a two channel mp4. So hopefully with all the great minds in this forum someone can help me with this???\ Thanks!!!!

    Need Transcoding help

    So I have recently added a HDhomerun EXTEND to my Emby system. The goal is to allow people to watch a few local stations in Emby that we do not get on other steaming services. All of my TVs are Roku clients of different types. Some hardwired some Wifi. I use my Android client on my phone on occasion also. I have 2 HDhomerun EXTEND units connected and my goal is to be able to support 4 users watching / recording at the same time without any major load on my Emby server. The Server is virtualized running as a Windows 10 system in VMware 6.5. It has 4 cores and 10GB or RAM. All the storage is local SSD on a RAID 5 array. The server is Emby Premier version 4.4.2.0 and the Roku clients are using Emby beta. Historically software transcoding has been fine for the movies and other videos I have in my library but with TV I knew the use would spike and more transcoding maybe needed. This lead me to buy the HDhomerun Extend versions due to their capability to decode. Once setup I had a few issues with specific channels that I have learned are down to reception thanks to posts and help in other Emby forums. Then I was still seeing ffmpeg activity going on, sometimes as a directstream where the audio was being converted, others full transcoding. With more help from the Forum I purchased and installed a NVIDIA GTX 1030 card to do hardware decoding. The problem is I am still seeing ffmpeg activity for the Roku clients. I now DO NOT see it for the Android but definitely for the Roku clients. Can somebody help me sort what is going on here? Shouldn't the decoding all be happening in hardware now between the HDhomerun EXTEND and the NVIDIA card? I see that the Processing Plan in the ffmpeg log still says False for all CanDoInHardware lines does that mean the card is not working correctly? I have attached logs for more details. hardware_detection-63724218955.txt ffmpeg-directstream-0194bed2-a9ad-4aac-b654-03b1a909ac4e_1.txt embyserver.txt
  25. Hi @@ebr, Android TV stats show that this movie is transcoding due to "Video Bitrate Exceeds Limit" Audio was expected to transcode due to playback through TV/headphones Playback rate set at Auto in ATV app Home Network Quality set to 4k - 120Mbps User Transcoding: Audio and Video Allowed Ethernet connection An ffmpg "Transcoding" log was produced which suggests Video encoding happened when it shouldn't have as the shield is capable of Direct Playback of this video - as proven when Video Trancoding is turned OFF As a test, I set Video transcoding = Not allowed and ATV Playback rate to 100Mbps This time, an ffmpg "Remux" log was produced - for the Audio i presume. Playback still worked fine but ATV Stats still show "Video Bitrate Exceeds Limit" Not sure why - Bug? Attached: 2*Server logs, 2*ffmpg logs, MediaInfo, image of ATV stats for the test playback embyserver-Original Playback.txt ffmpeg-transcode-Original playback.txt embyserver-Test Playback.txt ffmpeg-remux-Test palyback.txt
