    Cannot access server outside LAN

    Hi all. I know this same question has been asked a number of times, but I have so far been unable to find a fix for my situation/setup. I recently purchased a lifetime membership for Emby based on using the software to watch movies/shows locally (through my chromecast) at home. My 'server' is a PC running Windows 10 and I have my media located on an external hdd. I am using a TP-Link Archer C3200 router. I have been trying for the last week or so to figure out how to access my library remotely with no luck. I have tried via the iOS app (sign in with Emby Connect and no dice) as well as on a couple different laptops. So far I have tried/looked into the following: - confirmed uPnP is enabled on my router - confirmed automatic port mapping is enabled on Emby - created inbound rules for Windows Firewall to allow ports 8096 and 8920 on my server - assigned Reserved IP address for my server - set up 'port forwarding' via virtual servers (external port = 8096; internal IP = 'Reserved IP address from above'; Internal Port = 8096; Protocol = TCP) (also did the same for 8920) - confirmed that 'allow remote connections to this Emby Server' is enabled - canyouseeme.org CANNOT see my service at ports 8096 or 8920 Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Hello, I have a problem with web interfaces, both in firefox and chrome on windows. In particular when I open emby from browser it often shows an older cached session, meaning that the next episodes to play and the one to be resumed are older. If I clean the cache, things get back to normal. Still, it happens all the time and I cannot keep clearing the cache every time, is there a way to prevent this from happening? Thanks, Alberto
  3. Could we please have a mini player option for the Windows Theater Emby Theater app so that the app can have a much smaller mode (footprint), but still show the most important items, much like the iTunes MiniPlayer: Normal ... Track Title, Album Title, Album Artist, Play Progress Bar, Track Time, Track Time Left, Album Cover thumbnail, etc. When moused over ... Play/Pause, Next Track, Previous Track, Volume Control, Play List/History, Play Progress Bar interactive, etc. Thank you! James

    Windows Chrome Audio

    So weird little issue. Chrome on Windows (maybe others but haven't tested) sometimes no audio. Quality set to auto emby will play the stream with no audio. A work around is to change the quality from auto to anything else then back to auto and it works. My thoughts are if emby in chrome could detect somehow that no audio is playing and then transcode the audio from the begining as opposed to having to change from auto to something else then back to auto to get the audio to fix itself? I may be wrong so any advice or solution would be appreciated. Thanks.
  5. Hi there, I dont know if this is the right sub-forum to post it.. but i couldnt find a 'Mobile App' category. If its wrong, im sorry, please dont close it, but move it.. So, the problem i have at the moment When the iOS App or Android App is used some content just doest play. When i check the logging it looks like it getting played, but the app just shows the loading icon for ever. I tryed to find it in the logging, but it looks like its playing. I am kinda out of options why this happens, it weird part is that it doesnt happens with every video file. Just some. Besides the content also taking a while to load, like 30-60 seconds at some point. What i find very weird. The locations of my video content is added through a network path, \\server\movies\ Attached on this post are the logs. I have Transcoding turned on Yes and all the my users are allowed to transcode. Here is how my setup looks like. Server: OS: Windows Server 2016 RAM: 16GB DDR4-2400Mhz CPU: 2x Intel® Xeon® CPU E5-2620 v3 @ 2.40GHz GPU: Nvidia Quadro P2000 VM on a VMWare ESxi 6.7 Update host, this VM has 24 vCPU's. Storage: QNAP TS-419U CPU: Marvell 1.2GHz RAM: 512MB DDRII Disks: 12 TB HDDs (4 Disks,Raid-5) Network: 2Gbps (Trunking/LACP 2x 1gbps) Network: Switch: Netgear GS108Ev3 Cables: I only use CAT-5e. The only think i could think of is my out-dated NAS. Its the slowest device of my setup, but it should be fast enough. When i was running Plex there other issues ofcource, but not the issues i mentioned. I hope someone has some advice or recommendations i could try. Kind regards, Graxo
  6. I have read as many of the related topics I could find but the answers did not help. A short time ago, all of my X265 encoded videos stopped casting to Chromecast. After selecting the Chromecast, and pressing play, it appears to start, then goes back to "Ready to Cast". I have tried Android app, iOS app, and browser app. I tried reducing the quality in the app settings (Playback>>Chromecast Streaming Quality) to no avail. I have tried several movies and the only ones that cannot play are X265. These videos were playing fine until recently (was there an upgrade to the server?). Have others experienced this? Emby Server: Version 4.0.3.0 Chromecast, 1st Generation Chromecast firmware: 1.32.144770 Emby for Chromecast 2.1.0 Emby for Android Mobile 3.0.42 I do not mind upgrading my Chromecast, but was hoping we could troubleshoot and understand the issue, as it just started happening recently. I have attached the video specs of one of the movies I have been trying to play (tried 10+ this morning to troubleshoot). I have also attached the transcoding log of one of the failures. I did edit the file for "THE NAME WAS CHANGED TO PROTECT THE INNOCENT". Any help? ffmpeg-transcode-8009045a-52ca-43d3-bb7f-ffc476c922e3_1.txt

    Vera plugin causing errors in log

    Was doing some maintenance and found that the Vera plugin is constantly generating errors in the event handler. I only noticed this when looking at the log, as my system performance hasn't been degraded by it and the Vera plugin still appears to work normally for me. I've attached the logfile to see if @@chef or @@Luke had any ideas. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the plugin, and can confirm that these errors disappeared when the plugin was removed, and reappeared upon reinstallation. embyserver-20190806-1142.txt
  8. Good Morning, Last night I had multiple crashes in a very short period of time. I have sanitized and uploaded (5) different server logs from that period of time. Please let me know if there is any additional information that you would like. Essentially this would take place when trying to access content via kodi on an nvidia shield. the server would completely lock up and become unresponsive. even though the service would show that it was running and the icon is present the website is inaccessible. thank you for taking the time to review. bry
  9.

    4K videos in .strm files

    Hi everyone, I use only .strm files and everything works fine, so the files that are in the cloud are all .mp4 with AAC 2ch audio. Nothing to complain about. Among the files, I have since DVDScreen, 480p, 702p and 1080p and all of them play on clients. Now I intend to also have a 4K file and would like to know if the .strm will be played on the clients, stating that I turn off all transcoding options while keeping direct playback on. Thanks for any info.
  11. For my boxsets, I used to have everything organized the old MB2 way, with boxset folders and movies within the folders. For example: \Movies\Matrix Collection\The Animatrix (2003)\A Detective Story (2003)\A Detective Story.mkv \Movies\Matrix Collection\The Animatrix (2003)\Final Flight of the Osiris (2003)\Final Flight of the Osiris.mkv . . . \Movies\Matrix Collection\The Matrix (1999)\The Matrix.mkv \Movies\Matrix Collection\The Matrix Reloaded (2003)\The Matrix Reloaded.mkv \Movies\Matrix Collection\The Matrix Revolutions (2003)\The Matrix Revolutions.mkv This served my purposes, but obviously didn't work as well with MB3/Emby since the Movie view had all of the movies without the collection folders. This morning, I decided to remove all of the boxset folders, and use the "group into collections" feature to better organize my Movies folder (I was tired of looking at 12 consecutive Land Before Time movies when scrolling through my movie view). So far the results are exactly what I wanted to see but I have a couple of new problems. My main issue is more of a general problem - can you create custom collections of movies that don't necessarily have the same TMDB collection id (or any collection id)? I don't really see anything in the metadata manager to accomplish this, but I assume it is possible. For example, how do you organize the Animatrix when you have all 9 stories as individual media files? TMDB treats this as a single anthology movie, but they do have the individual stories as separate movie entries as well. The problem is TMDB doesn't include the individual stories it as part of a collection anymore, either as a standalone "Animatrix" collection or a part of the Matrix collection, so I just have 9 random movies spread out across my movie collections in no particular order. Ideally, I'd like to have an Animatrix boxset as a nested boxset within the Matrix collection, but I will settle for standalone Animatrix collection. I know I can create an "Animatrix [boxset]" folder and put the individual movies in there. That will create an entry in the collection view for the Animatrix movies, but they still show up in my "Movie" view as individual movies. I cannot figure a way to group them in the movie view as well, and I haven't figured out how to nest it inside of the Matrix collection either. A secondary issue (somewhat related) is adding a movie to an existing collection. For example, TMDB doesn't include the new "Minions" movie as part of the Despicable Me collection, and is inconsistent with the various shorts and mini-movies that are part of that franchise (some are part of the collection, some aren't). If I manually edited the TMDB collection id in the metadata manager so they were included in the Despicable Me collection, would it group everything together? And would it get overwritten the next time it refreshes the meta data (I don't see an option to lock the id fields).
  12. Okay, so before I used to use a Roku Ultimate TV box, which the Emby App and the windows Emby Server worked flawlessly, and emby server connects easily with both the iOS and Android smartphone apps, but recently we purchased an Amazon 4K FireTV Stick because they were on sale, and despite it having obvious advantages over Roku, the first time I tried connecting emby server to emby for firetv it drove me mad. I don't have enough know how to install root and ca certificates onto the FireTV, so after what seemed like 50 times of trying to use Emby Connect and manually typing the IP and port in, somehow it connected, and it stayed connected up until the last time I used it 3 nights ago. Then today I tried to start the emby app and once again "Error connecting to server", I've saved the most recent emby log of the connection event, so if anyone could help me figure this out I'd be forever in your debt! FireTV would be perfect if not for the issues connecting to emby server, because I use emby very often! Thanks in advance everybody! P.S. I attached the log as a txt below
  13. I made the installation of the emby server and tested it in my house, after some accesses I noticed that the system asks me for a single payment or a fixed payment for monthly payments. I wonder if with just such a single payment, the system lets me create multiple users on my local network and if there is any limitation on the number of users to be registered. (Realizei a instalação do emby server e teste em minha casa, após alguns acessos notei que o sistema me pede um pagamento único ou um pagamento fixo por mensalidades. Gostaria de saber se com apenas esse pagamento único, o sistema me deixa criar vários usuários em minha rede local e se existe alguma limitação na quantidade de usuários a serem cadastrados.)
  14. Hi, I have been using emby now for almost a year with no issue, this morning when i went to load content on my Roku showed: connection failed: Connection refused So i logged into the windows machine running the server and attempted to load the server GUI from the tray and received the following error localhost refused to connect. ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED I have attempted multiple server reboots and restarting the emby server. I have also tried removing the system.dll from the emby folder and then restarting the server, this actually brings up the gui with the start up wizard but as soon as i drop the old file back in it will not work. I have attached the log file. Cheers embyserver.txt

    CCTV NVR software on Windows

    Anyone using any CCTV NVR software on Windows (10) ?? If so, what software do you use please. I have a couple of IP (PoE) cameras and I have been looking at iSpyConnect and Blue Iris, but I'm sure there are others. Doesn't have to be free software, as long as it is being kept up to date. Thanks.
  16. I have Emby Server (version 3.3.1.0) running on a Windows 10 PC 64 bit (Previously running Windows 7 had same issues) and use Emby for Kodi (version 3.0.22) on a Fire TV and two Fire Sticks. The problem I have been having is the server goes to sleep while streaming a video but then prevents the server from sleeping after I shut down Kodi and put the Fire TV or Fire Sticks to sleep. The problem seemed to start happening sometime after version 3.2.35.0. I found some reported this problem but it was a few years ago so I figured I would start a new thread. Maybe it's just me and I am doing something wrong???
  17. New user here. Emby app opens on FireTv. Connects with server. Shows all media, but will not play media, only buffers. Media source is external HD. Emby premiere member as of today. Worked fine for the past 3weeks since installed. Please help.
  18. I have update from 4.0 and now I am having major issues with transcoding videos for playback to a Roku. Nothing in my setup changed other than the emby server update. I have tried to look at the logs but am unable to make heads or tails of them as I am not use to looking at these sorts of logs. Information about my Emby setup Base is Windows 2012 Server R2 1 x 1TB Hard drive 1x 5TB Hard Drive Cache is currently set to a USB3.0 Flash drive (this is a trial item. Was set to a folder on the 1TB hard drive prior.) Transcoding cache is set to a RAM disk. As the transcoding space is temporary and should be quick access I created a RAM disk on my server for the purpose of this. Any logs that would be needed please let me know. If others are experiencing this as well I would like to know. If there is anyway I can rollback my Emby Server version that would be helpful as well.

I should also mention: 1) Before and after the HDHomeRun firmware update, I am able to use the HDHomeRun app for Windows to view Live TV. The app has not been changed or upgraded - only the firmware. 2) Unfortunately, I also upgraded to Emby Windows 4.1.1.0 at the same time. During troubleshooting, I returned the "system" directory back to 4.1.0.26 and restarted Emby. That is my current state with the problems reported above. ffmpeg-transcode-ac14525d-74ce-4093-b3b0-f2fadb2528f5_1.txt

    Re-think desktop app

    My experience with Emby on Windows desktop. UWP Emby Theater: 1. Doesn't support client side rendering of graphical subtitles formats hence forces transcoding; 2. Playback of HEVC 8 bit encoded files doesn't start on my Windows 10 PC running Skylake processor with Intel HD Graphics that supports HEVC 8 bit hardware accelerated decoding; 3. I've yet to test it but I'm afraid it might not have full codec support, I'm not sure if this is due to any limitations applied to UWP applications. Emby Theater downloaded from website: 1. Playback of HEVC 8 bit encoded files doesn't start on my Windows 10 PC running Intel Skylake i3-6098p processor with Intel HD510 Graphics that supports HEVC 8 bit hardware accelerated decoding, have to set using external player in Emby Theater; however plays H.264 files fine; 2. When tested on two legacy AMD integrated graphics (pre GCN arch) Windows 10 machines, playback control overlay doesn't show; 3. Works perfectly on my Coffee Lake powered Windows 10 machine with Nvidia graphics that supports HEVC 10 bit hardware accelerated decoding. Web app: codec/container support vary from browser to browser, and doesn't support graphical subtitle formats, although this is expected behavior. Kodi with Embycon plugin: doesn't list custom video library at all i.e. "downloads", "home video", etc. So, the overall experience on the desktop is not quite what I expected. And no, I'm not providing server logs, client logs, file samples since these issues are more than what I feel like dealing with, I'm writing this so that maybe the developers can re-think the desktop app design.
  21. I have been an Emby user since MediaBrowser. I loved and still love how it works with Windows Media Center on Windows 7. My current media server is set up on Windows 7, and I use WMC on my main TV that's hooked to the sever, and a few other TVs in the house. I guess I'm just looking for some advise on what to do now that support for Windows 7 is ending. I'm just so used to the layout of Windows Media Center, and the flawless execution between it and my Windows 7 server set up, that I'm anxious about how to make sure things work for me once Windows 7 is no longer a good solution. Does anyone else on here still use 7 and WMC? Did you used to use it and have moved on to something new and you still like it? I love the LiveTV of WMC. I know Emby now has LiveTV options...but I think I need to buy a specific tuner for that? Is Windows 10 my only option with Theater? What about Linux server? So...yeah...bit of a ramble. I guess I'm just looking for any suggestions or advise for someone who has used a Windows 7 setup through Windows Media Center since original Mediabrowser. The future and change is scary...please hold my hand and help me through it!

    Message to user device

    Hi, Is it possible to use CSS code to change the background color and the length of time the text message sent to the user's device is logged in? I understand that the time is too short for longer messages and the background is confused with the caption. I would like to have a lighter background color, maybe in red or yellow color. Thanks for any tip.

    Unable to stream to Chromecast

    Hi all, I hope there is someone that can help me. I just installed Emby Server 3.5.3 on a Windows 2012 server. All seems to work fine except streaming to a Chromecast. When selecting a Chromecast on my iPhone it just displays "Ready to cast" and then nothing happens. In the attached EmbyServer log file I started to stream to my Chromecast 20:44 (see also below). For further info, I have also attached two ffmpeg log files. 2018-12-20 20:44:40.496 Info HttpServer: HTTP Response 204 to 10.0.0.63.

  24. Hi, I think there is an across-the-board change that needs to be with all Emby player apps. 1) Remove codec and channel layout info from Audio Language drop downs, only display the Language 2) Display Video and Audio codec info (including definition, channel layout and resolution) in a similar fashion to parental rating/closed captions mark. 3) Offer a setting (probably in Display settings) to display Media Info as icons (like CoverArt does) instead.

    Remote access no longer working.

    I tried accessing my server when I was on vacation and I was unable to connect. Remote access has been working fine for the past year, I'm not sure what has changed. I checked my firewall and everything looked good, just to be safe i removed the inbound rules and added them again, but still no luck, I even disabled my firewall completely but it still didn't work. I am able to remote into my computer with Chrome remote desktop connection, so it seems like my network is working as it should. And yes, I do have port forwarding set up. As I said earlier this was working perfectly for over a year, It just stopped recently. Anyone have any Ideas?
