    UI Bug (Apple TV 4/4K)

    There is some sort of UI bug with posters on both my Apple TV 4 and my Apple TV 4K. This only happens via the Apple TV's...not via the web portal or my iPhone X. Look at the outline around the cases on some of these... Apple TV 4K screenshot taken via Xcode: Some of those same collections look fine via the web:

    Apple TV App blank without internet

    Hello all, This is my first post to the forum. I have had my Emby server up and running in a jail in FreeNas for about 2 months now (Emby Version Last week the internet went out for an entire day, but I was not able to watch movies from the server on the Apple TV. I could however view them in my web browser on my laptop by going to the local IP address of the server. The problem was when I tried to open the Emby app on the Apple TV the screen was just white. I assume that this application loads from the internet, so that is why the screen was just white. Although I could be wrong
  3. I have an apple tv 4k, and using emby with the free liscence I'm having an issue where I'm trying to play my Emby files on Apple TV and it doesn't even want to play. I'm thinking now is it because I have to own Emby Premiere?

    Mark Played Icon

    Hi, I’ve been using Emby for about a month now and love it since moving from Plex. Plex is more polished I’m not going to lie but Emby is built around its users and I’d rather my monthly subscription go somewhere I know it’ll be well spent. Hopefully with some fresh eyes on the apps I use, (which are already really great looking) I can add some request to how it can be polished. So with that, my first request would be about the ‘mark played’ button you get when you are on a film or a tv season or episode. Across the iOS and tvOS, UI you get the green tick to show its watched, or a green
  5. Hi, I have my Apple TV HD set to play Dolby Digital 5.1, and am trying to play media ripped from DVD into mkv h264 ac3. It is playing back as PCM. I have tried playing Dolby content from the Apple TV+ app, and it works fine. I believe this to be an issue with the Emby Theatre app. I am aware that mp4, mov and m4v are natively supported by the Apple TV. Emby Server is direct streaming to mp4 from what I can see. ffmpeg-directstream-b9a0b094-32e1-4d53-997b-8328c1cd5e67_1.txt
  6. Hello! My wife and I just got a brand new Apple TV 4k! We have downloaded the Emby app and we are having trouble accessing our server. We have a specific domain and port and I can only add the domain. Since the port does not match, we cannot login. Please let me know what I need to do in order to have access to my Emby library. Thanks!
  7. Hello, in July last year you’ve promised us an “internet free” Apple TV iOS version. As we use our Apple TV often in our camper, it’s not always possible to watch our movies because we don’t always have an internet connection available. Can you tell us when we may expect an new iOS version that doesn’t require internet? Thanks a lot !

    Various Apple TV Bugs

    Hi there. New Emby user for the sole purpose of music and having a few issues with the Apple TV client, mostly cosmetic. I've noticed there is an issue with track numbers in that they do not display unless you scroll down, then back up again. The numbers do not correspond to the tracks (which are in the correct order despite this). Please see the image attached - note the missing track numbers, which change each time an album is selected. The web client is fine. I've also noticed that I cannot skip through some tracks, which display as streaming 'live'. Is this a file format issue
  9. Quick question that I hope someone can answer: How do you skip chapters when playing a video using the emby app on an Apple TV 4K? Is there some secret double or triple tap on the remote that I'm missing?

    Subtitle text is huge when italic

    .SRT subtitles work fine most of the time (although they still don't respect the system subtitle settings) but they become unusably large when there are formatting tags, like <i> for italics. For example, here are some subtitles from season 4 episode 1 of Paw Patrol: 209 00:10:10,043 --> 00:10:12,010 (Kitty and sheep yelping) 210 00:10:12,012 --> 00:10:14,145 <i> Marshall, Rubble, Rocky, Zuma</i>! And here's how line 210 looks on screen: The exclamation point at the end, outside the <i> tags, is the normal text size. If a fix for this is poss

    Music Playback Randomly Stops

    I have Emby server (version running on a Synology DS216play (DS version DSM 6.2.2-24922 Update 3). Our primary client is the Emby app on our Apple TV 4K (both running most recent versions). When playing music, we generally select Songs and Shuffle, allowing it to cycle through our entire library (about 4500 songs of various formats). We have a Weimaraner who has a bit of separation anxiety so when we are gone and leave her crated we leave music playing in the background to help calm her. When I first switched from Plex to Emby, we could gone several hours, as much as 6 hours
  13. If I'm watching something on emby through my apple tv and I close my laptop the movie keeps playing for a few minutes then stops playing and closes. Is this normal? Do I have to be connected to the server through my laptop to play things on my apple tv? I'm really new to emby so sorry if this is a dumb question.

  15. Apologies if this is an obvious/newbie question... During playback on an Apple TV (all, including 4th gen) or older FireStick, I will frequently have issues with the video stuttering, or flat out pausing randomly. This happens whether on WiFi or hardwired. I've read a lot of similar posts, particularly regarding the Apple TV, but the difference for me is that so far, reducing the maximum bitrate seems to resolve the problem. My question is, is there a down-side to reducing the max bitrate? Does a lower bitrate translate to lower video quality? Thanks!

  17. Hi, I'm an Emby Premiere customer, currently experiencing an issue with playback on Apple TV. Playback of Direct Streaming media (no transcoding) on Apple TV (4th gen) is not working correctly. Video pauses for ~10ms every ~10 seconds. Audio is unaffected. This is happening on in an iocage running on FreeNAS 11.2-U3. It was also happening on I updated to yesterday, but the problem persists.

    Empty Library

    On my Apple TV, after the update to v4 of Emby, I am no longer able to see the content of my TV Shows library.

  19. Hi, total scrub over here. I made my server on my old desktop that just died last week (ouch) and created my new server using the same emby connect account on my new desktop. When I go to stream from my apple TV that worked extremely well with my original server on the same internet connection, the apple TV asks me to select a server (the old one or the new one I made). Everytime I select the new one and enter the pin to connect, it gets stuck loading and never loads. Do I need to delete the old server to get this new one working?

    Episodes stopped before their end

    With the latest version of emby on the Apple TV (4th gen) every episodes stops about 5 to maybe 10 seconds (maybe even more) before the video’s real end. Even trying to manually skip to the point of the episode where emby quits the plaback doesnt help. emby shows the correct video length but is just stopping playback too early. This is really annoying as it kills every cliffhanger. Any suggestions?
  25. Hello, all. I'm wondering if anyone has experienced this problem or might have a solution: I have four MKV files that play fine on my computer using the Emby app. However, when I try to play the file from the Apple TV Emby app, I see the movie and the chapters. But, if I try and play the movie, all I see it black and no audio. The counter shows that it thinks the movie is playing. Interesting enough, if I go back in and RESUME playback, sometimes it plays fine. Other times, I still get black. Haven't figured out why it works only some times. The four MKVs were all ripped from the
