  1. 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?
  2. 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?

    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

    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

    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

    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.

  7. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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. Server: Version 3.5.2.0 Docker on Ubuntu 18.04 Clients: Kodi Emby and EmbyCon (increased buffer/set it to unlimited) Emby Theatre UWP Emby Theatre Desktop Web (Edge, Firefox & Chrome) Android Just say if you need any client or server logs.
  11. Plex has the "Optimize" feature, where pre-transcoded copies of files are stored for later playback on a streaming device, like an AppleTV. The benefit is it doesn't take real-time transcoding for the target device, allowing for useful transport controls (thumbnails during forward/reverse scrubbing). Does Emby have an equivalent feature? I'm trying to figure out whether Emby or Plex or some combination of both are the right solution for my various viewing scenarios. Thanks.

    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
  13. Server: 6HDs, FX6300, 4GB RAM, Win 10, Emby Server Version 3.2.60.0, disabled active monitoring and disabled subtitle extract. Transcoding between Emby Server and FFMPEGX take 100% of all 6 CPU threads and about 80% of RAM. Client: Apple TV 4K, Auto quality playback, On 1080p video files, its 30-60 seconds from clicking "play" on a video before it actually begins playback. I'm relatively new to Emby, so I'm not sure how to approach it. On the same machine in Plex, it would be near instantaneous. See logs. edit: oops, forgot to mention. Only has the integrated GPU and I do not believe I enabled any HW encoding/decoding. ffmpeg-transcode-edbdca80-791a-40c9-8bb9-3d78519747e2.txt server-63650233373.txt

    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

    Bitrate Limit Not Working.

    Hello, I would like to set a Bitrate limit to my clients, but I can't seem to make it work! I'm testing in Kodi with the emby addon, and I set on my server a limit of 2Mb/s. When I play a movie in kodi (outside my network, so streaming, not direct playing) I press the leter "o" to get the movie information! I see that it still is a 1080p movie and that goes beyond the 2Mb/s bitrate. On the server dashboard I get the information "Direct Plying". Only when in kodi I set a lower "Video Quality" I get Transcoding in the dashboard and the correct bitrate on the video info in kodi. I would like to control this, not the clients. I would like to limit the bit rate to all clients, and if possible the video size (down to 720p). Is this possible? Thank You
  16. 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
  17. I have an old show encoded in XVID inside AVI containers. When I DirectPlay them on a device that supports AVI/XVID, they play fine, but if transcoding kicks in then the video turns into a garbled pixelated mess with tons of macroblocking.

  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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.

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
  23. Hello, I recently moved from Plex to Emby because the first still doesn't support the Chromecast Ultra but I'm coming across a different problem with Emby: While most video files I have are 5.1 or 7.1 audio tracks and thus require transcoding, which I know is normal for the CCU since it only supports stereo audio or passthrough, I notice Emby transcodes the whole file instead of only the audio... So because the MKV has 5.1 audio, the video is transcoded from HEVC to h264 all the time which obviously uses unnecessary CPU and lowers the quality of the stream. This occurs for any HEVC files I have that includes an audio track over 2 channels... HD or UHD. So is this normal? Did I forget to configure anything? Where can I get more info as to why exactly it's being transcoded? emby_server.log emby_transcoding.log
  24. 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.

  25. I guys . I'm totally new to emby so i hope my question won't be too stupid for you Status : HP n 54l with xpenology and plex media server. I want to switch from plex to emby because there is nos significant improvement on hardware transcoding since a year and i need a plex pass to use it. Purpose : Adding a Nvidia gt1030 for Hardware transcoding on the fly 4K HEVC from it to read it from a distant place. Is there any chance it works ? Like i dont whant to waste my money I decided to try emby on my gaming computer (gtx980 + 6600k + win 10) to see how mature was hardware transcoding on Emby. Just installed the server and running it. No configuration other than switching to Nvidia NVENC. Switch to my Z3 tablet with the android app and do this : Try to read a full HD movie in H264 - without transcoding => OK CPU 1% NO GPU - Transcoding to 720P 2mbps => 13% CPU 20% GPU (why ? shoudln't the cpu stay to 1%) Try to read a Full HD movie in H265 - without transcoding => OK CPU 1% NO GPU - transcoding to anything Doesn't work . (log attached). Any advice on the probability to decode 4h hevc with Hpn54l + gt1030 is welcome.(most of all for say to me it will works ) Any help to understand why my test was a faile dis welcome too. Let me now if you need any other informations or If i forgot something.
