  1. This guide will explain how to setup a Windows Server instance of Emby server with IIS as full transparent reverse proxy with SSL offload and auto-renewing certificates via Lets Encrypt. First, What is IIS? IIS or Internet Information Services is the web server service provided with Windows and Windows server installations. It is industry standard technology and is widely supported and regularly maintained by Microsoft. Second, What is a reverse proxy? A reverse proxy will take requests coming into your server (in this case HTTPS on port 443) and route them to a backend application (in this case Emby Server on port 8096 on the same box or another). Reverse proxies are very useful if you only have 1 public IP and multiple services you would like to run on a single port (443, for example is standard secure web traffic) or multiple servers that need to appear as one. Third, Why do I want a certificate for my site from Lets Encrypt? Well, most sites now days are secure (read they encrypt your traffic to prevent people from seeing your data), browsers these days flag sites that are not using properly signed certificate chains or run on insecure ports. If you use a self signed certificate in Emby, you may have difficulty getting things like the iOS app or Roku app to work properly outside your home. (Not sure about the rest of you, but Emby on the kid’s iPad is a life saver for long car rides). Let’s Encrypt provides free SSL certificates that are signed by certificate authorities that will be recognized on all devices and platforms. I will be using Windows Server 2019 with IIS 10 and AAR 3. All of this should work with Windows Server 2012R2 and Windows Server 2016 as well as Windows 10, however there may be some differences. You can use either stable or beta version of Emby Server, however in this guide we will use the stable version. At the time of writing, this guide will get you a full A+ rating from SSLlabs.com security test. (For comparison purposes, Facebook’s rating is a B.) In this guide we will: Install Emby Server Move Emby Server Installation to a non-user-locked location Setup a service user to run Emby Server as Configure Emby Server to run as a service Configure Windows Firewall Install IIS Install AAR Install IIS Rewrite module Configure AAR Configure IIS as a reverse proxy for Emby Configure SSL cypher suites for the server Install the Certify the Web client. Configure Certify the Web for auto-renewing SSL certificate for your domain Note: To be externally accessible, you will need to configure your route/modem to port forward 80 and 443 to your server. Pre-reqs/Assumptions: A physical server or VM running Windows Server An Internet Connection A DynDNS/No-IP URL (or similar routable dns name pointed at your router’s public IP) You have port forwarded ports 80 and 443 through your router to the machine you will use as a reverse proxy (in this guide we will use the same box for the reverse proxy and Emby server, but these can be run on different hosts). You have installed Notepad++ on the machine you will be setting up.

Under IIS Manager > Rewrite you should now see the following rules: Configure Server Cyphers Download here: https://www.nartac.com/Products/IISCrypto/Download (GUI version) Run the IISCrypto too Click Templates In the template drop down box, select PCI 3.2 This will disable IIS from being able to serve via SSL 2.0, 3.0; TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1. This will leave just the industry standard TLS 1.2. Click Apply Click OK. Reboot your server. Emby Internal Settings Navigate to your server via the localhost:8096 address Click the gear in the top right corner Click Network from the list of tabs on the right Configure as shown (use your hostname in the external domain box) Conclusion Upon rebooting your computer will start IIS services and Emby server as a service. Traffic coming in on port 80 (if someone just types your url without HTTPS in their browser's address bar) will be automatically redirected to port 443 and the HTTPS:// version of your host name. Your certificate will auto-renew every so often and re-bind to the site in IIS without any interaction on your part. This allows for a server that you can for the most part setup, and forget about and just manage your Emby installation via its web ui. There are a lot of ways to set up Emby server depending on your environment and other factors. For my environment this made the most sense and since large portions of this took quite a bit of digging and research to get working just right, I figured Id make someone else's life a little easier if they were trying to do something similar. These instructions can be adapted for Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016, Windows 8 and Windows 10. In the end browsing to your domain should look like this in the browser Additional Information for Updating When Updating your Emby installation. Simply stop the service for Emby, install like you normally would, then just cut the system folder inside the %appdata%\emby-server folder and paste it into the C:\Emby-Server folder. When prompted replace all files, then start the service again once the copy completes. Additional Information about Connecting with Emby Apps When connecting to your Emby installation remotely with Emby apps remember to prefix your domain name with https:// and use 443 for the port number. <Edit> Additional Information about changing Emby Server Title: For those users who wish to change their page title in browser (as discussed here), here is additional Web.Config information that will let you do just that! Using IIS Re-Write rules to change the page title means, you don't have to edit files to reset it every time you upgrade your Emby Server! Add these 3 rules at the bottom of the rules list, replace whole <preConditions> block too.: NOTE: Make sure you replace ALL 4 instances of NAME_OF_YOUR_SERVER with what you want your server to display in the tab bar. <rule name="RewriteTitle" preCondition="ResponseIsHtml1" enabled="true"> <match filterByTags="None" pattern="&lt;title>(.*)&lt;/title>" /> <action type="Rewrite" value="&lt;title>NAME_OF_YOUR_SERVER&lt;/title>" /> </rule> <rule name="RewriteAppHeaderJs" preCondition="ResponseIsJS" enabled="true"> <match filterByTags="None" pattern="document.title=&quot;Emby&quot;" /> <action type="Rewrite" value="document.title=&quot;NAME_OF_YOUR_SERVER&quot;" /> </rule> <rule name="RewriteAppHeaderJs2" preCondition="ResponseIsJS" enabled="true"> <match filterByTags="None" pattern="title.Name||&quot;Emby&quot;:&quot;Emby&quot;" /> <action type="Rewrite" value="title.Name||&quot;NAME_OF_YOUR_SERVER&quot;:&quot;NAME_OF_YOUR_SERVER&quot;" /> </rule> <preConditions> <preCondition name="ResponseIsHtml1"> <add input="{RESPONSE_CONTENT_TYPE}" pattern="^text/(.+)" /> </preCondition> <preCondition name="ResponseIsJS"> <add input="{RESPONSE_CONTENT_TYPE}" pattern="application/javascript|text/javascript" /> </preCondition> <preCondition name="NeedsRestoringAcceptEncoding"> <add input="{HTTP_X_ORIGINAL_ACCEPT_ENCODING}" pattern=".+" /> </preCondition> </preConditions> </Edit>
  2. I am thinking this may be an IOS bug since it only seems to happen on iphones/ipad. Currently running Emby on Windows 10 VM in ESXi, fresh install, nothing else but Emby and Nginx. Nginx handling reverse proxy with SSL. Have 3060ti passthrough for transcode. Emby connects to mounted network folder. When playing a movie from my subdomain either in ios safari, chrome, edge, the movie starts to play for about 2 minutes then drops and the screen returns back to the movie page. Sometimes the movie plays fine. I have not had any issues playing in browser and a buddy with an android phone has not had any issues playing. Happens on different phones, ipad, wifi on or off, does not matter. Happens if transcoding or not transcoding does not matter. Movies are playing fine in Emby app on myy phone. I have also tried this setup Linux, same thing happens.
  3. Emby Server Windows 10 - Version 2004 - Long path enabled in policy & registry. Long filename usage works in e.g. in Total Commander & VLC-player Hi! emby does not playback songs in paths >259 characters, even they are shown (but not tagged) in the library. Problem may be ffprobe. log-file: 'Error App: Error in ffprobe' I tried to use \Emby-Server\system\ffprobe.exe manually in command line. The error also appears. "No such file or directory" What is the solution to solve this problem? Do I have to change/install another version of ffprobe? How? Best, Stefan PS: This guy may have the same problem, but the solution does not work with emby i think https://stackoverflow.com/questions/63243711/ffprobe-file-not-fournd-error-due-long-path-but-windows-long-path-enabled Log Playback long paths not possible _ embyserver.txt.txt
  4. I have Windows Media center installed and had the current version of Media Browser Classic installed along with emby server, but wasn't satisfied with it. I had structured my media folders based on how the old MB worked with configurator (using folder.jpg and backdrop.jpg for poster and fan art) Since I have other PC's that run Windows 7 and use MB version 2.6.2 none of the movies on my Windows 10 PC have any viewable art (when viewed on a Win7 PC with MB 2.6.2) because the new MB Classic uses poster.jpg and fanart.jpg instead of folder.jpg and backdrop.jpg I would like to know if there is anyway to be able to change the naming scheme of movie art so that the latest version of MB Classic will download images with folder/backdrop names instead of poster/fan art I don't like having to have the server installed as I don't stream anything and would prefer the configurator for setting paths and icons over the web server interface. I still have all the original files related to version 2.6.2 (both in .exe form and backed up from an install even all the .dll files so program data folders and all that are there) Is there anyone that can help me figure this out? or do I need to give up and revert back to Windows 7 (everything just worked on Win7 now it's all a nightmare on Win10) Also on a side note I noticed that the current MB Classic wouldn't find any art for a lot of movies and has left my interface looking unfinished when browsing movies.
  5. На многих файлах после нажатия во время воспроизведения кнопки pause, потом play, через несколько секунд останавливается воспроизведение видео (картинка замирает), а звук продолжает воспроизводится. Порядок такой: 1. Нажимаю pause. 2. Нажимаю play. 3. Проходит 5-10 секунд. 4. Картинка останавливается, звук идёт. Пробовал на разных компьютерах, такая же проблема. Помогает выйти из просмотра, а потом "продолжить просмотр" (если видео не близко к концу, тогда система считает, я закончил смотреть). При этом на этих же файлах нет проблемы в приложении для Android и через веб-браузер.

  6. Hi There, I have been using EMBY for a few months and have come up with the subject issue. (Using the Emby Android app) I can stream and cast all content currently in the library. however, when I have watched a program it does not update my watched list nor does it download any meta content eg images. Further I cannot scan new media that I place into my folders. I have ruled the following out: - Firewall issues (I did not change this at all but have tested with the firewall off anyway and same issue) - AntiVirus issues (same as above) - Restarted Emby server and host machine - Checked naming convention and folder structure of the media files - Disabled automatic port mapping (to test) Below is an extract of the error I am experiencing from a debug log: 2021-07-07 16:58:30.408 Error PortMapper: Error creating port map *** Error Report *** Version: Command line: C:\Users\George\AppData\Roaming\Emby-Server\system\EmbyServer.dll Operating system: Microsoft Windows 10.0.19041 Framework: .NET Core 3.1.13 OS/Process: x64/x64 Runtime: C:/Users/George/AppData/Roaming/Emby-Server/system/System.Private.CoreLib.dll Processor count: 4 Data path: C:\Users\George\AppData\Roaming\Emby-Server\programdata Application path: C:\Users\George\AppData\Roaming\Emby-Server\system MediaBrowser.Model.Net.HttpException: MediaBrowser.Model.Net.HttpException: <s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" s:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"> <s:Body> <s:Fault> <faultcode>s:Client</faultcode> <faultstring>UPnPError</faultstring> <detail> <UPnPError xmlns="urn:schemas-upnp-org:control-1-0"> <errorCode>-111</errorCode> <errorDescription>Invalid Action</errorDescription> </UPnPError> </detail> </s:Fault> </s:Body> </s:Envelope> at Emby.Server.Implementations.HttpClientManager.CoreHttpClientManager.SendAsyncInternal(HttpRequestOptions options, String httpMethod) at Emby.Server.Implementations.HttpClientManager.CoreHttpClientManager.SendAsync(HttpRequestOptions options, String httpMethod) at Mono.Nat.Upnp.UpnpNatDevice.GetSpecificMappingAsync(Protocol protocol, Int32 publicPort, CancellationToken cancellationToken) at Mono.Nat.Upnp.UpnpNatDevice.CreatePortMap(Mapping mapping, CancellationToken cancellationToken) at Emby.PortMapper.ExternalPortForwarding.CreateRules(INatDevice device, CancellationToken cancellationToken) Source: Emby.Server.Implementations TargetSite: Void MoveNext() Any thoughts on further troubleshooting?

    How do I secure my server?

    I moved from PLEX, I have a lifetime sub but didn't like to fact that PLEX moved from being a HOME Media server to a streaming service. My concern is this. If we have EMBY looking thru our routers (http: mode) I don't feel safe. A few months back, PLEX was being used as a DDOS backboard. Steve Gibson constantly keeps up with the security issues of the day. I always felt a little safe when you didn't have to log in your server and open ports to a website just to use it at home. This one thing, that PLEX did has moved me from them. Here's why... A while back, thru no fault of my own, the ISP goes down. We were watching a show when it happened. The server just stopped and I could not get back into the server and I was sitting at the server. It was pretty sad that we had to watch the end of the show thru VLC on the server because we could not get into PLEX. A friend suggested EMBY. I can see that EMBY follows the same line as PLEX did and has stayed as a local server. THANK YOU Now that I have moved over everything to EMBY, I am concerned. I would like to have my server fully secured again. I was told I needed a Domain Name to get a Certificate to create a SSL. I went to Godaddy to get my domain name. I got Arkansascajun.com for me. Godaddy has parked it so now what do I do. I just want to secure the server and only allow myself access and not a ton of others. I do like the idea that I can visit my mothers house and get on my server. The wording of the subscription is precise and I believe it is ok. I only want my server secure and invisible to anyone but me. As you can tell, I have only basic skills and do not understand anything other than very simple steps. I use the KISS method Keep IT SIMPLE STUPID. Thanks
  9. Hi I'm running a playlist with music videos in it, every time it starts a new video Theater flashed back to my Windows desktop for about a second. I'm running the installed version of Theater under Windows 10. I can provide logs if required, I doubt I can grab a screen shot but could video my screen if it would help. Thanks in advance.
  10. I had been running Emby on Windows Server 2016 for some time and watching movies and TV shows on my Mi Box S (MiBox4) Android box on Kodi with Emby plugin without any problem. Last week I migrated my PC to Windows 10 Pro and reinstalled Emby server on it, also did a fresh install of Kodi on my Android box to re-sync everything. Since then, it's been a debugging nightmare for me as no matter what video, large and small, high bit-rate and crap sd, video playback stops randomly every few minutes! First I thought that it might be my router configs (It's a 2.4GHz running at 40MHz wide channel 150Mbps N)... I kept playing with the configs, replaced DD-WRT with OpenWRT, then with the original D-Link firmware, then back to the latest version of DD-WRT; no matter what I did the videos kept stopping. Then I started messing with Kodi on Android's advancedsettings.xml's cache/buffer values, I even installed Emby's Android app, still the same, video drops randomly, sometimes with the "source too slow" message. I then came to my PC, changed the Realtek NIC's configs, Windows registry values, Firewall settings, routes, even reinstalled and reconfigured Emby numerous times, it even got worse! Now I come to thee completely exhausted and out of ideas, looking for help... Any ideas? Here's the most usual error on Emby's logs: 2020-07-20 10:20:55.583 Info HttpServer: HTTP Response 206 to Time: 162278ms. 2020-07-20 10:21:26.604 Info SessionManager: Session 8b7b1e843b7e2410fdd159d7908f4244 has gone idle while playing 2020-07-20 10:21:26.604 Info SessionManager: Playback stopped reported by app Kodi 4.1.19 playing Deeper, Deeper, Deeper Still. Stopped at 713000 ms I bet it's some kind of f*-up on Microsoft's side as I did not have ANY problem with the same PC, Router, and Box on Windows Server 2016 even with playing very-high-bitrate 30GB 1080p 4-hour movies! If it needs mentioning, there's no problem playing videos on Emby server localhost.
  11. Hi, I have just install the Microsoft Store app, and can not sign in using emby.media/pin. I get the error Invalid username or password even though both are correct, and can sign in to Apple TV app and web app, as well as from my organizr dashboard.
  12. I was adding movies to existing Collections that were incomplete and everything was working as expected. I tried to add "Major League: Back to the Minors". When I was directed to my Collections, it would only display Collections up to the letter "J" (see attached example), so I couldn't add it. I tried adding "Thor: Ragnarok" to my existing "Thor" Collection, however, I received the same results. If I go to my Collections without trying to add anything, all of my Collections are displayed. Any ideas on what went wrong or how I can resolve this? Thanks. Running HTPC: Windows 10 Client: Emby Theatre for Windows (latest version)

    Unable to install on win 10

    I have tried to install emby using the windows installer from the web site and it crashes. I downloaded the portable version and extracted to a folder and this works. When I attempt to update the version in the folder via the management console, it to just reports nothing, other than restart server and I am back to the original version. I need help... Geoffrey
  14. Hi! I run Emby Premiere v. on a Synology DS918+. A beloved video freezes under certain circumstances. At 6 min 11 sec mark it freezes never to be recovered again. The only way is to start from scratch but it still freezes at the same time mark. I can skip forward for up to two minutes without a problem. Any more and the video freezes beyond saving (except starting over from scratch). This happens no matter if I have Hardware Acceleration on or off but it does so only in Windows 10 1909 with Emby Theater v. and Google Chrome v. 78.0.3904.108. When using the Android app (Emby for Android Mobile 3.0.87) it works near flawless and I can skip forward in the video without a hiccup. Any idea what might be the reason for this? Would you be helped with some logs (if so, please specify which one/ones) or anything else? Any help on this issue is much welcome. Thanks! //Sebastian PS.

  15. I am having an issue with the Windows 10 client connecting to my Emby Server. The client is connecting ok and I can click on Recordings or TV Shows and that works ok. Then I click on Halfwits and Heroes which works ok. Then I click on the episode I want to watch and that is where the problem begins. I click on Episode 1 and it eventually comes back and starts playing but it is 15 minutes to 1 hour later that it starts. This is the list of how my Emby Server is setup: Server: Ubuntu 18.04.3 Connects over Ethernet through a switch to my NAS where the data files are stored NAS: WD My Cloud 4 TB Connects back through the switch to my WiFi router WiFi Router: Netgear R7000 video is sent wirelessly to my laptop Laptop: About a 1 yr. old laptop that I have converted the 1 TB HD to two SSDs Emby runs fine on both Roku's we have plus on my Samsung Tab S4 tablet and on the server itself so I believe this is a Windows 10 issue. I will connect the Emby log. Windows worked just fine for several years even though I was on a different Ubuntu version. Please let me know how I can get Windows to work again. Thank You, Mike LaPointe mike.lapointe@.com
  16. I've been using Emby for a month now and am almost ready to switch completely from Plex...almost. I was skipping forward thru a show with Emby and it kept locking up every few seconds and I'd have to wait to continue. So I opened the same video in Plex and navigation was smooth as silk, no lock ups or freezing at all. What can I do?
  17. I was trying to install: https://emby.media/emby-for-windows-media-center.html I was using this guide to install Windows Media Center: https://www.howtogeek.com/258695/HOW-TO-INSTALL-WINDOWS-MEDIA-CENTER-ON-WINDOWS-10/ I can't get WMC to install on my Win10 machine for the life of me. I tried the browser to use a web based version of Emby on Xbox 360, didn't seem to want to work. Is there any plans to update more support for Windows 10 as WMC isn't supported by MS for Win10? Mostly asking so I can keep a use for my Xbox 360 and not have to switch to another media center software that has more support for the 360 (won't mention names).
  18. As the title says, Windows 10 1809 update has just deleted my Emby server install? spent days setting this up :-( Also deleted all my custom setting etc???

    Images Disappearing Issue

    So, my folders image issues still remain. Same image repeated 4X which is really annoying, especially since I'm a bit OCD and little crap like that drives me nuts. Now, When I add new videos and edit the images they just disappear. I added the proper poster, backdrop, and banner, clicked save and thought that was it. Until I found a better backdrop image, went to change it, and discovered 2 out of the 3 images I added were gone. And after checking some other images discovered they were gone as well. So I re-added everything again went to double check and VOILA! Gone again. I have the new beta and was thinking of installing it but thought I'd better check for a solution here first.
  20. Hello, I have been using the same PC for our media server since 2012. I started with WMC and Media Browser and have slowly migrated to Emby Server and NextPVR. I've successfully restored Windows 7 and rebuilt the PC at least 3 times over the past 7 years. Time for a new PC!!!! Okay, maybe not new. Well at least newer, faster, and more disk space. However, I'm wondering if I should try this with Windows 10. Is the latest version of Emby Server (I’m currently using fully tested and compatible with Windows 10? Are there known limitations, issues, or things I should know before making this decision? Perhaps I should just stick with Windows 7 since I know it works. Thoughts, advise, and direction are all greatly appreciated. :-) Thank you, Julie
  21. Hey there, I am really new to this. I bought a J3455 apollo lake board to create my own small media server. The goal is to transcode x265 up to 4k/10bit. Someone over here got it working on his Synology with the same chip: https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/comment/1561297/#Comment_1561297 My problem is that ffmpeg doesnt seem to be able to use hardware acceleration correctly. It always falls back to the standard CPU transcoding. I use these files for testing: http://www.h265files.com/ All files play fine with hardware acceleration in MPC-HD. But transcoding always falls back to the CPU. I am using the latest Emby beta and tried different intel drivers. I attached the transcoding log. The most interesting part seems to be this: Stream mapping: Stream #0:0 -> #0:0 (hevc (hevc_qsv) -> h264 (h264_qsv)) Stream #0:1 -> #0:1 (copy) Press [q] to stop, [?] for help [hevc_qsv @ 0000025bb36044c0] Could not load the requested plugin '15dd936825ad475ea34e35f3f54217a6': specified object was not found (-9) [hevc_qsv @ 0000025bb36044c0] Error loading plugins [hevc_qsv @ 0000025bb36044c0] Error initializing an MFX session Error while decoding stream #0:0: Function not implemented [hevc_qsv @ 0000025bb36044c0] Error initializing the MFX video decoder: invalid video parameters (-15) Error while decoding stream #0:0: Invalid argument frame= 0 fps=0.0 q=0.0 size=N/A time=-577014:32:22.77 bitrate=N/A speed=N/A [hevc_qsv @ 0000025bb36044c0] Error initializing the MFX video decoder: invalid video parameters (-15) Error while decoding stream #0:0: Invalid argument [hevc_qsv @ 0000025bb36044c0] Error initializing the MFX video decoder: invalid video parameters (-15) Error while decoding stream #0:0: Invalid argument [hevc_qsv @ 0000025bb36044c0] Error initializing the MFX video decoder: invalid video parameters (-15) Error while decoding stream #0:0: Invalid argument [hevc_qsv @ 0000025bb36044c0] Error initializing the MFX video decoder: invalid video parameters (-15) Error while decoding stream #0:0: Invalid argument transcodinglog.txt serverlog.txt
  22. Hello, I am having an issue with the Theater desktop app. For most hd content I try to play, it stutters at first and sometimes smooths out but usually stutters intermittently. I can see its direct playing from the server. I play the same content through firefox and get no stuttering. I really love the desktop app but have issues playing hd content. For the client I'm running Emby Theater 3.0.5 Windows 10 HP Desktop with 6 GB system ram AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual core 4400+ AMD Radeon R9 270x 2GB graphics card And the server is Ubuntu 16.04 running emby AMD FX 8350 8-Core with 24 GB system ram AMD Radeon R9 270x 2GB graphics card Both connected to 1Gb Ethernet LAN I can access the files directly through samba shares that are setup on the server. I have also tried to play some 4k content but it stutters even worse. The only difference is that it doesn't play any better through the browser. As far as the 4k is concerned what is the bottleneck, is my hardware just not good enough? Thanks for any and all advice. RemuxLog1.txt RemuxLog2.txt RemuxLog3.txt ServerLog1.txt RemuxLog_4k_1.txt
  23. I have a trip coming this week and wanted to sync a couple of movies on my 2-in-1 Samsung TabPro S and have a few issues I've been seeing in the log. Attempting to sync a DVD of Fifth Element produces the following in the log: Unknown encoder 'mpeg2video' Also, attempting to sync a Blu-Ray rip of The Dark Knight says the same except the encoder is "vc1". My server is Linux Mint (planning to go full Ubuntu Server very soon) which is based on Ubuntu 14.x. I have never had any issues with my server so far, BTW, so this is very out of character. I rip my movies using a paid version of MakeMKV. The movies will stream fine if just playing even from the Windows 10 app. The issue seems to be with sync only. Also, in trying to sync other movies some of them are fine but others have a really, really long duration (like thousands of hours) making seeking impossible. The movie will play fine but the duration is WAY out of whack. Has anyone else experienced this? I didn't attach logs right now because I was just wondering if this is a known issue already (?). Any help would be appreciated.
  24. 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
  25. Месяц назад купил премьер подписку, но уйти с браузерного плеера так и не смог, ни Emby Theater с магазина приложений, ни приложение с сайта Emby ни хочет воспроизводить видео. Касается в том числе и трейлеров. Звуковая дорожка есть, видео нет. Чего только не пробовал - нихрена не помогает. Может кто сталкивался?
