  1. I have never been able to get Emby Theater (software not Win store app)to play on my desktop. It has 3 monitor setup. I hadn't gotten around to making a post about it. Emby theater will just play audio of live tv, but just show a black screen. Same black screen with audio plays with local H264 files. When i try to playback my live TV recordings (mpeg2) it just loads it for a sec(black screen) then stops going back to the video description page. Doesn't matter what monitor I load it up on. No change if I toggle the Video rendered form Madvr to EVR etc. I disable my 2 other monitors via the Nvidia control panel and only use my primary monitor, Emby Theater plays all media fine. Currently using Emby Theater 2.5.40. But this issue I noted even back when it first came out. I did it on my GTX 970 and still does it on my GTX 1080. Nvidia drivers made no differance but are current. Still using the same monitors. Windows 10. Not sure on how to get any logs or more info from the software itself. Nothing seems to be reported on the server or transcode logs on the server itself that would indicate an issue. They look the same each time i test it, multi monitor enabled or not.
  2. Hi there, I'm having a problem trying to play videos on my Android tablet using Chrome. My (older) Android phone plays them fine using the same browser. When I try to play a video, I can only see the fanart and the video window never appears. I'm attaching my server log and ffmpeg log, I hope I'm doing this correctly but let me know if you need any more information. ffmpeglog.txt serverlog.txt

    Video-afbeeldingen op tv niet zichtbaar

    Na een herinstallatie van Emby (v. 3.0.5985.0) op mijn QNAP Nas worden de videofiles niet meer als afbeelding weergegeven (voorheen dus wel) op mijn (LG smart) TV. Onder de instelling 'Metagevens' staat aangevinkt dat afbeeldingen gedownload en opgeslagen moeten worden ( dat werkt). Onder op de optie diensten (Metagegevens) staat aangevinkt dat de afbeeldingen moeten worden opgehaald: 'primair', 'logo' en 'miniatuur' Onder DLNA settings heb ik onder het profiel van mijn LG smart-tv aangevinkt dat 'album hoezen' moeten worden ingesloten. Waarom worden de afbeelding niet weergegeven? Wat zie ik over het hoofd??

    there was an error playing the video

    Hi guys, Recently I'm getting some issues with some mkv and also with some avi files. http://www.lalala.com:8096/emby/videos/cc2c06a5a89684b65b2bb537830d8281/hls1/main/0.ts?DeviceId=04e623de3cccde817a76b811b2e7c1cec7d245c8&MediaSourceId=cc2c06a5a89684b65b2bb537830d8281&VideoCodec=h264&AudioCodec=aac&AudioStreamIndex=1&VideoBitrate=9776000&AudioBitrate=224000&Level=51&Profile=high&PlaySessionId=25b4a9cc19c74163918288ccfbebaf1b&api_key=5b2368b0e14841a089204cf3617b61a0&CopyTimestamps=false&TranscodingMaxAudioChannels=6&EnableSubtitlesInManifest=false&Tag=54a77eae154a2423713fef8d9fd3d2f3&RequireAvc=true {"Protocol":"File","Id":"cc2c06a5a89684b65b2bb537830d8281","Path":"/var/lib/emby-server/encfs/Movies/The Accountant (2016).mkv","Type":"Default","Container":"mkv","Name":"1080P/H264/AC3","ETag":"54a77eae154a2423713fef8d9fd3d2f3","RunTimeTicks":76742623232,"ReadAtNativeFramerate":false,"SupportsTranscoding":true,"SupportsDirectStream":true,"SupportsDirectPlay":true,"IsInfiniteStream":false,"RequiresOpening":false,"RequiresClosing":false,"SupportsProbing":true,"VideoType":"VideoFile","MediaStreams":[{"Codec":"h264","TimeBase":"1/1000","CodecTimeBase":"583/27956","NalLengthSize":"4","IsInterlaced":false,"IsAVC":true,"BitRate":2399974,"BitDepth":8,"RefFrames":4,"IsDefault":true,"IsForced":false,"Height":800,"Width":1904,"AverageFrameRate":23.97599,"RealFrameRate":23.97599,"Profile":"High","Type":"Video","AspectRatio":"2.40:1","Index":0,"IsExternal":false,"IsTextSubtitleStream":false,"SupportsExternalStream":false,"PixelFormat":"yuv420p","Level":41,"IsAnamorphic":false},{"Codec":"ac3","Language":"por","TimeBase":"1/1000","CodecTimeBase":"1/48000","Title":"AC3 -

  5. Feature Request - EMBY Server- Reports - ability to sort by Video/Audio/Genre/Resolution Columns Currently you cannot sort the reports in Emby Server by Video, Audio, Resolution or Genre. Please add this feature.
  6. So, last night the server crashed again. It got me the errorbox of an exception failure. (I had people who wanted to access their account and was to stupid to take a screenshot). Anyhow, I have logs, 56mb, so i uploaded the biggest one, the other ones you can find attached to this post. https://www.dropbox.com/s/gbhcvidq3ovm4e4/server-63605433600.txt?dl=0 The unhandled log seems to be the one showing the crash, then again, I'm a master of content, not bugfinding I don't seem to find a log on the Event Viewer about .net or anything similar that happened around the time of the crash. This started around the 3.0.5986 update, every night the server restarts and it never restarted a few times. If it would happen every time, I would be annoyed, but in this case, it happens randomly. Need any other info?

    Videos Dont Play

    Luke, Videos do not play if logging into Web Client, or ET web version (tv.emby.media) via external IP address. This issue just recently popped up since installing v3.0.6000. I only use external IP at work, so I just found this out. Theme songs work fine, but if I press play, or resume... nothing happens. Will send you a log via PM. Hope you can find the issue, watching YouTube sucks!

    Family Photo and Video

    Hi, Developers can you guys think about that add google photos interface in emby Family Photo & Videos its very nice app can save photos in computer and its magical managed and organised our photos and videos also its download our computer mean synchronize and view like Google photos app, if you dont know about it check on YouTube. you gonna love this app
  9. If I'm watching a video and pause it for more than a minute, when I try to resume it the audio restarts but the video never resumes. The only way I can get video working again is to stop the video and fast forward to the point where I paused it. The server is a dual proc Xeon X5660 @ 2.80GHz with 96GB RAM on a RAID 6 array, so I don't think it's a resource issue. The client is an Nvidia Shield. My only guess is that there is something going on with trans-coding on the server end. From what I can tell unfortunately everything is being transcoded on the server end despite the fact that the shield can handle it. How can I troubleshoot this issue or what info can I provide to obtain assistance?

    Roku Media Selection

    Hi. New to Emby. I installed this server controller so I could view my media, Photos, Videos and Music. In setting up media locations, I only find ability to load single files not folders and subfolders. I have thousands, no, tens of thousands of photos, videos and music albums. How do I set it up so it will read entire parent folders, rather than having to add one file at a time? It would take literally months of adding one file at a time for every photo, song, or video file. Other apps allow folders, and reads all content in sub folders below it but I do not find this option in the dashboard. Anyone know if this can be done? Otherwise this setup was all in vain! Thanks ~FR
  11. Hi, I just purchased the Windows Phone emby app (great work by the way) and noticed a thing that is just a little annoying... The back, home and search "on screen" buttons can't be swiped off the screen... which makes watching videos really uncomfortable. Here's a screenshot of the problem. I know that not every app offers this possibility -which might be quite new considering the recent disappearance of the hardware buttons- but it's a really nice feature when it comes to video playback Details : Lumia 950 W10 version 10.0.10586.63 Emby App version Emby Server version 3.0.5724.6 Hoping to see this coming in a future update... Thanks !

    Can not play video in Kodi (and a bit more)

    I have a setup with a pc running Emby media server and all my media (movies, tv shows and music videos are relevant for this question) on the local hard drive, and a laptop with Kodi and the Emby for Kodi addon. All video files are coded in H264. I have set up path substitution for all main folders like this: From To /home/hpb/Videoklipp/Filmer //Programbank/Videoklipp/Filmer The machine name is Programbank. When I use the Emby web interface on the laptop everything works as expected, but I have some issues in Kodi. Of all my 29 movies, Kodi will only play one. It will not play any music videos or any of the few TV episodes it sees. All music plays fine. A while after I have tried to play the following message pops up: --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- One or more items failed to play. Check the log for more information about this message. --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- I have a log file from a session where I do the following steps: -Start Kodi -Try to play a music video (ABBA - Fernando) -Try to play a movie (About A Boy) -Play the only movie that will play (Flåklypa Grand Prix) -Try to play a TV show episode (The Thorn Birds ep 1) -Exit Kodi Log file: http://pastebin.com/Zqt2BnwK Does anybody understand what is wrong here and how I can fix it? I have searched the forum for solutions and have found several similiar threads, but none with my exact problem and none of the suggestions have helped me. Also, about TV shows. It seems like Kodi can't see episodes that are in season folders. Can this be right? According to the wiki I should be able to use season folders: http://kodi.wiki/view/Naming_video_files/TV_shows
  13. I'm having a bug with video stopping after the first video ends in a playlist. When the first video ends it pops out of the video screen and back to the list of videos, it seems like the video keeps playing but only audio is working so I'm not sure what's going on. I am choosing the play all option so its not that I have only clicked on the first video. Is anyone else getting this problem?
  14. Hi, Ho do I organise video with different languages? DO i rip the DVD first in english and then a second time in italian? What folder strucutre do use? media-> movies-> my_movie->mymovie-IT.mkv mymovie-EN.mkv I don't seem to be able to find the naming structure on the wiki or searching "language" in the forums. And what about a series of 26 DVD, each an episode of a cartoon my kids follow? Episode 1 - mymovie.mkv Episode 2 - mymovie.mkv Episode 3 - mymovie.mkv etc? For now I have added all 26 episodes in a collection "mymovie" but I noticed that Emby has recognised that "The Smurfs" and the "The Smurfs 2" belong both to a single collection that Emby created itself. Thanks for you help in advance.
  15. hello, I have a concern with Emby on Ubuntu server, when accessing http Emby, videos read this without problems, but when I accessed via https, I misread Video window, yet all my videos are in MP4 format. I do not understand what's going on! thank you in advance for your support

    Camera Upload - Video Files?

    Hey all; Does anyone know if it's possible to enable the upload of video files from the camera upload feature? Mine seems to be grabbing images, and I'm amazed at how fast it's working, but video files get left behind.
  17. Hi I downloaded and install Emby Beta 3.0.5713.6 on my Windows 8.1 Pro x64 and i'm having the folowing issues: 1) When using Emby for android 2.4.8 (latest) when try to stream video to my device, the video keeps loading forever and don't play and I had to restart my phone and in my PC the ffmpeg.exe keeps runing using high memory rate until I restart Emby Srver. 2) So I downgrade to Emby 3.0.5675.1 and the video stream are ok, but when I try to play musics, the Emby for Android play wrong musics, i.e., I choose one music and Emby for Android play another music, and if I choose other music, Emby for Android start to paly the previous wrong music. The only combination that works fine is Emby 3.0.5675.1 and Emby for Android 2.3.98. Less bad that I had saved earlier versions of Emby for Android, otherwise I could no longer use Emby on my Android. I hope that before making this official version of Emby Beta, you really test the Emby Server with Emby for Android, because once published the official version can not go back Thanks for your attention.

    Video interlace detection

    I've ripped several DVDs using MakeMKV, without reencoding. The original DVDs are all interlaced, but after playing them with webclient on iOS I noticed that they are not being de-interlaced. I also checked the media information in Emby and all of them have the "Interlaced" attribute set to "No" so I guess Emby is not trying to de-interlace them when transcoding. I also found this thread from last year but I'm not sure if there was any advance since then: http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/5437-any-way-to-set-mb-server-to-deinterlace/?hl=deinterlace Is it possible to switch the Interlaced attribute to yes in any way so the server will deinterlaced the video on transcoding? Should I encode all my DVDs from the original MPEG2 into h264 applying deinterlacing in the process? Thanks.

    Google Cardboard

    I've been using google cardboard a lot as of late to watch my media via my Note 4 in Virtual Reality 3d. There are some decent apps for this, but none so far from what I can see with the ability to stream media to my phone. My favorite app the 3d application so far is Full Dive. Has there been any thought to build native support in to the Android Media Browser app to view streaming media browser content and 3D movies to a smart device in a sort of Virtual Cinema view. I think this would be a great addition to this already amazing product.
  22. Why: hmm I'm lazy and don't like to adjust the volume of my TV for each Show\Movie. Requirements: VideoGain Visual C++ Runtimes must be installed VC2005 VC2008 VC2010 .NET Framework 2.0 must be installed (Standard Vista+) Instructions: Extract VideoGain archive into a folder...ideally called "VideoGain" so it's easy to find and use next time. Then read the ReadMe.txt it goes over nearly everything. Exceptions being, the command line has changed, and there is now AC3 encoding...which higher values equal better sound, but larger file sizes. You'll basically be looking to use ether ReplayGain or r128 Gain...if you live in Europe...I'd strongly suggest r128 as that is the spec used on TV stations there. Everywhere else...take your pick, both are fine...ReplayGain tends to be louder. If your audio is MP3 or AAC already...you may wish to use the (Tag) versions...as they are non-destructive...since there is no re-encoding of the audio. If you use a Roku, you should ether make your audio AC3 if you want more than Stereo...or use AAC. If you do go AAC and you have audio...that wasn't Stereo to being with...you should probably select "DownMix (Stereo)" Also if you use a Roku...if you go videos done in Xvid or the like...this will encode to H.264 making your videos playable without transcoding. If you do this...be sure to use a quality factor of 21 or less...smaller will mean a bigger file size, but also less damage. Also set the speed to Meduim or slower to cut down on file size.
  23. Why: mediacowboy needed something to help find videos that wouldn't play directly on the Roku, but ended up required transcoding to do so. Notes: This only detects at present very basic reasons a file might fail. Container not mkv, mp4, mov, m4v, m3u8, ts Video Codec not H.264 Audio Codec not AC3 or Stero AAC Requirements: AutoIt FFMpeg Instructions: Install AutoIt and set it to execute scripts when double clicked. Create a folder somewhere...lets call it "Roku Detect uncompliant Videos" just to be unimaginative. Now inside "Roku Detect Uncompliant Videos" create a sub folder called "Bin".

Now going back into "Roku Detect Uncompliant Videos" folder Right Click on it's background and select "New\AutoIt v3 Script" from the context menu, and Rename it "Roku Detect Uncompliant Videos.au3" Now Right Click "Roku Detect Uncompliant Videos.au3" & select "Edit Script" from the context menu.

Now go do something else, this will take a while...maybe a great while depending on the number of videos you have. The script will notify you when it's done...and if you're curious as to if it's still running there should be a icon in your system tray that looks like a blue "A". Past that you can start your Task Manager and you should more than likely see FFMpeg running in the background. Result: This should possibly produce one or more text files. The primary one will be what is produced in the "Error Logs" folder, this will list what files failed and why...but keep in mind these only list the first reason why it failed, not all possible reasons it may have failed. A number of these may not even be video files at all...but a format that should have been excluded from the search. Which brings me to the next file "UnKnown.txt" this file will be updated with one instance per unknown file extension, possibly every time you run the script and it finds something new. Now ideally I have all or at least most common non video extensions excluded from the search...this is everything on the right side of the pipe "|" symbol on line 21 at present. You may wish to add new extensions to be excluded from future searches...thus speeding the script along...but please consider sharing your additional excludes here in this thread, to help others out as well. What Next: You may wish to use one of my app's, called VideoGain (free) to process the failed video files. It's main purpose is to batch adjust audio volume, so that all the videos have more or less the same gain...so you don't have to monkey around with your volume all the time. Originally it only processed folders full of videos...not individual, but since I was already making some corrections to it already...I set it up to do single files as well. Here is where we get hackish. Download VideoGain & extract it somewhere...ideally in a folder called VideoGain so it's easier to find later on. Now Start it by double clicking on it's exe...then close the app...it will now have produced a new INI file...and we are going to edit it's contents with whatever your favorite text editor happens to be (Notepad, Notepad++, UltraEdit,..). In the VideoGain.ini all the way at the bottom...you should see an entry called "[Folders]". Now below that we'll be adding entries of our own...basically copy and paste from your Error Logs...into this file...but before each path put "Folder_#=" replacing the # with a number value...please keep each value different, and each entry on a new line. I'll likely write a simple script to help in this matter tomorrow. Anyways once all the edits are made...save the file, and restart VideoGain. You should now see all the files you want to process listed on the "Folders" tab. Now check "Direct Replace" and uncheck "Recurse Folders" (not needed). Now click on the "Settings" tab. If you had any videos that failed because they were not H264 then set the Encoder to "Conditional" which basically means if VideoGain doesn't detect the video stream to be H264..to then encode..but only then. Make further adjustments as you like to the H264 settings and Video settings. Now if you had Audio errors, you have a few picks...you can go with AAC or AC3...encoders...with the covet that AAC is limited to stereo. Right now if you select AC3...all videos will have the audio track re-encoded, bar non...I don't have an early out for that right now as I just added AC3 support...however if you select AAC and a number of your tracks are already AAC...and those tracks are Stereo...then you can select "ReplayGain (Tags)" this will do a non damaging adjustment to the AAC tracks...however all non AAC tracks will be encoded to AAC. Select "Stereo DownMix" if you plan to use AAC. All resulting files will ether be Mp4 or Mkv depending on what you selected for a container, from the drop down at the bottom of the application. Press "Start" and away you go. I would personally suggest doing at little processing as you need to. Each time something gets encoded...it gets more damaged.
  24. What this solves: 1. On demand creating Roku Bif files recursively through sub folders, using Emby Servers naming scheme. (Simple Dialog Interface, Command Line and SendTo {must be compiled}). 2. Scheduled Bif file creation, 3. Allow networked computers to work on shared folders to speed things along. Only limiting factors are the speed of your network & the number of systems connected. Notes: The Folders this script is to run against must be on ether a local or network mapped drive, as the script isn't setup to handle UNC paths. Also checkout the concurrent version further down in the thread. Requirements: AutoIt FFMpeg Roku SDK Instructions: Install AutoIt and set it to execute scripts when double clicked. Create a folder somewhere...lets call it "Creat BIF" just to be unimaginative. Now inside "Create BIF" create a sub folder called "Bin". Now extract the contents of FFMpeg's "Bin" folder into your new "Bin" sub folder. Now extract "biftool.exe" from the Roku SDK into your new "Bin" sub folder. Now going back into "Create BIF" folder Right Click on it's background and select "New\AutoIt v3 Script" from the context menu, and Rename it "Create BIF.au3" Now Right Click "Create BIF.au3" & select "Edit Script" from the context menu. Now paste the following code into: Now save the script & execute it by double clicking it and then select the folder holding your videos that you wish to process. Now go do something else, this will take a while...maybe a great while depending on the number of videos you have. The script will notify you when it's done...and if you're currious as to if it's still running there should be a icon in your system tray that looks like a blue "A". Past that you can start your Task Manager and you should more than likely see FFMpeg running in the background. By default this will create 320px aspect correct BIF files, if you wish to create 240px or any other size you'll need to edit line 7. Example: from $iVideoWidthSize = 320 to $iVideoWidthSize = 240 Update 1: I decided to let FFMpeg do all the calculations for resize...which result in a massive code reduction. Update 2: Added passing folders via command line. This is mostly aimed at adding SendTo context menu support. 1. Right Click on "Create BIF.au3" and select "Compile Script (x86)" from the context menu 2. ALT + Left Click on "Create BIF.exe" and Drag to create a shortcut...rename to remove ".exe" from the file name 3. Cut & Paste shortcut to your SendTo folder: %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo\ Now you don't even need to hunt down the script when you need it. Update 3: Added very simplistic scheduling based on a 24 hour clock. Currently you can not start on one day and end on the following. Only one time block allowed per day. The script now produces an INI that can be edited "Create Bif.ini" If you choose to use the scheduling the script needs to be compiled. Once compiled & the INI edited to your liking, open up a console in the script folder. Then enter: "Create Bif.exe" ScheduleNew Now new tasks have been created in the Windows Task Scheduler. To remove tasks enter: "Create Bif.exe" ScheduleDelete To not have a task scheduled for a day, set the start time and end time to be the same. Update 4: Command Line now supports both Folders & Files...thus making a SendTo shortcut more useful. Update 5: Added auto SendTo shortcut creation...only happens if script is compiled. To trigger this...simply use the executable once...you don't even have to actually process a file. If you don't want this feature simply delete the code on and between lines 17 & 25 (currently) Update 6: Now allows only one instance to run at a time, to prevent bogging down your system. This applies to Command Line and GUI, but not Task Scheduler...as the Task Scheduler should only have one instance anyways. This allows you to cue up several folders\files to be processed, even though they are in very different locations. Update 7: Made it easier for the script to clean up after it's self.

    MKV Buddy

    I stubble on this nice little tool that might interest people that are looking to convert videos to MKV/H264. http://htpc-tools.de/en/mkv-buddy-en/ This is not my program nor do i participate in its development. If you want to reach the dev, you must post on the mediaportal forum http://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/mkv-buddy-tool-to-help-handling-of-videos.127297/
