  1. Hi, I need help. I am premium user and have the following issues. 1. My server is loaded on my iMac and I can watch shows on either the app or the web client on the iMac. 2. I can open and watch shows on my MacBook Pro 15" (older model) via either app or web client 3. (Problem 1) - I can open and watch shows on one my iPhone 12's but not my other (both the same age) 4. (Problem 2) - I can't load the server on my Apple TV - it just continues to give me the spinning cogwheel 5. (Problem 3) - I can't load the server on my MacBookPro 13" (current model) I have attached a log file for today but this is went screwy 3 days ago and I am going around the bend trying to figure it out. I have had to go back to using Plex which I dont like except for their subtitles. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Got bored and wanted to get back into making things in photoshop so i decided to make a few apple tv themed library icons to add a bit of colour to my server, it has been awhile since i worked in photoshop but luckily apples designs for their icons are pretty simple and easy to replicate. I have taken some liberties of course for personal preference but overall i think they turned out okay and i had quite a lot of fun making these and have already decided to maybe make more aha hope you guys like them. --------------------------------------------- Here is an Imgur Album if you only want specific Icons otherwise the zip file includes all the files. https://imgur.com/a/bnVq43H --------------------------------------------- library icons.zip - File Contents Anime.png // 1280px x 720px Collections.png // 1280px x 720px Files.png // 1280px x 720px Games.png // 1280px x 720px Live TV.png // 1280px x 720px Movies.png // 1280px x 720px Music.png // 1280px x 720px Photos.png // 1280px x 720px Podcast.png // 1280px x 720px Recorded Movies.png // 1280px x 720px Recorded TV Shows.png // 1280px x 720px TV Shows.png // 1280px x 720px ---------------------------------------------

    no HDR switch on AppleTV

    Hi, i have read the topic here before, but unfortunately I can't find it again. Therefore I post it again. Maybe it can be moved to the right thread: Another problem is that the AppleTV Emby app does not automatically switch to HDR or Dolby Vision. The Emby app on the TV directly switches automatically. At the same time I noticed the same problem on a Telekom Magenta One (Android TV box) as well. Here is the same problem with HDR. Here, however, I can force HDR globally and then the movie is also shown in Dolby Vision. Whether this is a beta problem, I can unfortunately not say.

    Missing image from Continue Watching

    This was working, however all of a sudden the image is blank on the Continued Watching tile for any movie I watch. Any ideas on why this may have started happening? Is this a setting or a configurable item? My setup is emby in docker on synology using let's encrypt, reverse proxy and https.

    AppleTV Connection Failure

    Hello, I have Emby running on a remote server and I am able to access my library through both iOS and through a web browser, however, when trying to setup the Emby app through my appleTV I run into the following problems. After installing the Emby app I get the option to sign in by using Emby Connect and I have a pin. I go onto a browser and put in my login info along with the pin which all works as it should. The Emby app on my appletv then goes to a screen where I assume that my server is meant to appear but it does not. So I manually try to add my server using my URL but I just get an error saying connection failure. Please could anyone assist me. Thanks.
  7. The most recent release of the Apple TV app on tvOS 14 has broken the subtitle display. Upon opening a film with an external .srt subtitle file (which has worked correctly prior to this) the subtitles either do not follow the Apple TV subtitle settings and are very thin, small and the lettering is broken, or the subtitles do not appear at all. Opening the film a 'Subtitles Loading' message is briefly displayed (which I've also not seen before) but one of the described conditions occurs. This makes it impossible (in the second case) to watch the film if it is a foreign language. The subtitles work correctly as normal on iOS 14 and on the web client, but not on tvOS. Server version (but also the same with an earlier version), Apple TV version 1.4.8, tvOS version 14.0.2
  8. Is there a way to set a default version of a movie when offered from a Server? The server I use sometimes offers up to 4 different versions of a movie such as '4K' , 'FHD', 'HD' and 'SD' which the original files have been encoded for various reasons. I would like the Apple TV client device to default to 'HD' (which is 720p AC3 MP4 direct play) when it is offered from the server. If I do not select it, I sometimes mistakingly choose '4K' as it runs in alphabetical order on the menu and this does not play for me. Is this possible to choose a version?

    Next Episode Banner issue, Apple TV

    Hi has anyone else experienced the Next Episode countdown display bar thingy coming up way way to early iv had this now for a few weeks.

  12. Recently spun up new Emby server ~ 500 tittles of mix .mkv, Mp4 and BD. Video playback seems fine however audio decoding via Apple TV (gen 4K) device is not passing thru HDMI receiver correctly. Media-info shows audio format below. Format :AC-3,Dolby Digital Codec ID :A_AC3 Bit rate :448 kb/s Channel(s) :6 channels Channel layout :L R C LFE Ls Rs Sampling rate :48.0 kHz This Issue: The receiver indicates multichannel format on the display, sound working for L,C, R, LF (sub), but not surround L or R. I have eliminated the file as the the problem for the reason that Roku devices played from the same server and AVR combo and produce sound from all channels. So this points to the interface between Emby app and Apple TV device. Furthermore, I ruled out the Apple TV device and my AVR together because other content played directly from apple store downloads sound as they should with surround L and R working. Also , ran the app "speaker Check" for apple TV and this verified all channels working through receiver HDMI / Apple TV. My conclusion, something is preventing full multichannel support (L and R surrounds in this case) from working as it should and I suspect the Emby Apple TV app/interface is the issue. This is such a basic feature not to be working so I am sure I am not the first to notice if a know issue, or, my setup is unique somehow but I don't that is the case either. If anyone else is having this issue please comment. Also, if this is working as it should for you please share your settings. I have tried many settings without success. One other question regarding enabling MPV, I don't see a plugin so this feature must be integrated with the interface. Thx Bnw

    4K HDR Playback / Streaming

    Hi everyone, So the last couple of hours I was trying to get some 4K HDR files (HEVC encoded) to play back on my TV, an LG something-something 4K HDR capable TV. Following clients with their respective results: Apple TV (some 4K capable version): Direct Playing, no issues with .mkv container, HEVC video and TrueHD audio. Not working properly because of the native client not being integrated (or something like that :-) ) as of now: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/70719-thoughts-on-the-best-emby-app-and-best-streaming-device-please/page-4&do=findComment&comment=780940 What's the status on this? LG TV App: Direct streaming. Server says that it is "streaming" / transcoding because of an incompatible container format. Technically working, but stutters while playing back. At some times these stutters just feel like the movie was filmed with 15FPS, sometimes it stops completely for ~1s, then plays another 2-ish seconds. Annoying, cannot watch a movie with that. FireTV (3rd Gen): Direct playing. As my 3rd and last device, finally working without any issues. So good results with the FireTV, the other two are unusable. Regarding the AppleTV: An update and / or an ETA would be greatly appreciated :-) Regarding the LG TV: Network is GBit, so it shouldn't be that. I don't know what to search for though, so if anyone has tips on how to debug it, I'd be happy to try some more things out :-)

    Live Tv Choose Channel with trackpad get Oops

    When choosing a channel to watch we are getting this error when pressing the trackpad on the channel (which normally takes one to the channel/program info where you can choose channel as a favorite). Oops. Document Not Found on Stack. Maximum call stack size exceeded. We can get around this by pressing the play button instead. Also, while here, and related to the panel. The program schedules do not update when one presses the menu button to go back. This applies to both the favorite screen above (if that works [back once]) and to the channel listing [back twice]. Then if one presses play, the episode isn't available since it's often hours old. Has been this way since we installed emby last spring. I played around with this some and installed emby on a RaspberryPi 4 with 4GB. It was running version emby Had no problem with play functionality described first using the PI.

    Latest AppleTV app - Sort issues

    The latest Emby app version updated yesterday on my Apple TV 4K running iOS 12.4. I'm happy to see the option to sort by Date Played; however, it's not working. I can select to Sort by Date Played, then by Ascending or Descending, but those don't have the expected outcome. I can;t tell what order is being used but selecting Ascending vs Descending does change the display order. Also, when I select either Ascending or Descending and the screen refreshes with whatever order is being used, I'm put at the bottom of all the media titles. I swipe UP to get to the top but the screen doesn't scroll, that is until I swipe DOWN once then the screen scrolls up. To be clear, I can't scroll up until I swipe down once then the screen scrolls up as though I just swiped up. I also had some initial issues with playback but after an app and Apple TV reboot that seems to have worked itself out.
  17. Hey guys, Hopefully i describe this well enough. I have The Dark Knight for an example that I have both a 1080p version and a 4K version. I have these named as follows on the hard drive. 1080p version is: Movies > D > The Dark Knight (2008) > The Dark Knight (2008) - 1080p > and then the MKV file and all the nfo ect that emby puts in it. 4K version is: Movies > D > The Dark Knight (2008) > The Dark Knight (2008) - 4K > and then the MKV file and all the nfo ect that emby puts in it. I believe this is the correct way to do the folders as followed by the wiki. My question is as follows: When I go onto the app via my iPhone/iPad/AppleTV, the movies are there but they are seperate. On my friends Nvidia Shield he has the same as above but they are both under 1 "Poster" then has a drop down menu to select which version he wants to watch. He also has this ability on the iPad (i believe). So what am I doing wrong? Is it possible to have these under the one poster when on the AppleTv and the apps? Thanks for your help, sorry if this has been asked already!
  18. Hello, A few months ago i've opened an issue regarding the punctuation problem in iOS & tvOS for the Hebrew languages, you can see the issue here: https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby/issues/3137 In the last Beta version i saw that this issue is partialy resolved, now the punctuation appears in the correct way, but sometimes there is a '-' in the end of the line instead of a dot, see photo for example: But when i play the video in the Chrome browser on my Mac i have the punctuation problem, see photo for example: Here is the Subtitles file: Escape Plan 2 Hades 2018 - Bluray-1080p-LEGi0N.heb.forced.srt.zip Here is Emby Server log file: Server_Logs.zip Thanks, Idan
  19. Hi Emby Community, New to Emby - finally abandoned Plex after weeks of frustration. Running Emby server on an iMac 5K 2017 with Mojave 10.14.2, and trying to play media using the Apple TV 4K (latest OS and Emby app installed). For some television shows, Emby is identifying the episode's audio track as being: AAC 5.1 - but during playback via Apple TV, audio appears to be coming in as Stereo. Have tested other television series and movies, and those appear to be coming through fine in either 5.1 or even 7.1 in some instances. Is there a setting to stop audio being downmixed and force the native track to be sent through? The video files were all rendered by me using Handbrake and the same settings during the rendering, so I cannot figure out why select files would be downmixed to stereo versus others. Appreciate any insights or advice! Cheers
  20. According to the Apple TV Client wiki page, I should be able to play my x264 mp4 container file with external vobsub subtitle files to my Apple TV app without transcoding. I can direct play if I choose no subtitles. But, if I choose a subtitle, Emby starts transcoding because "Subtitle format not supported". I originally observed this on beta, but can reproduce on - both on Debian Stretch. I've attached the transcode file. Can someone help me know what is wrong? I really want to avoid transcoding with my Apple TV. Edit: included screenshot of the Media Info of the file in question. ffmpeg-transcode-4821f920-6b50-4c8a-8de7-83be32077cdb.txt.txt

    Performance grievance

    Hi, Currently Emby runs off my QNAP-653A with performance issues as soon as more than one device connects. Example: Apple TV4K playing one of my 1080P TV Shows (Transcoding: 21fps, 4.1Mbps ts H264 ac3 with the QNAP CPU running at 98%) Any other connected device makes it all collapse due to lack of CPU-power. All my network components are enterprise grade (Cisco Catalyst, port trunking for the NAS) and soon my internet connection is 1Gbps so i was really hoping to have the Emby server deliever my shows and movies to me on any device at any location even with my kid and wife watching stuff at home... It might be too much to ask from the NAS so I might install Emby on one of my old laptops (Dell M4600, i7, Nvidia Quadro2000, 16GiB RAM, 256 SSD, 1Gbps Ethernet, e-SATA) but before I proceed: 1. Shouldnt my devices at home play without transcoding? - Apple TV4K - Apple TV4K - Openelec Cubox-i4-Pro - ASRock Kodi on Linux 2. If i install Emby on the M4600 Dell Precision Laptop, how do i get the best performance? Linux or Windows? Will it take advantage of the Quadro 2000 GPU? 3. Should i run Emby on both at the same time? Let my mobile devices use the QNAP, internal devices on the M4600? would this cause any new grievance? Anyway to improve QNAP performance in case i go down this road, if it means typing some lines in putty/terminal thats not a problem... Best regards happy Premium-user since I noticed iOS offline was supported
  22. Server: 6HDs, FX6300, 4GB RAM, Win 10, Emby Server Version, 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
  23. Is anyone familiar with exactly what information AppleTV and Roku are collecting while using the Emby apps? Are they collecting information about watched media or more broadly just that the app is being used? Maybe somewhere in between (Bitrates, ect.)? Actually more concerned about Roku and than Apple. The Roku general privacy policy (read both of them) is extremely broad while Apple actually is more specific about what is collected and what is done with collected information. The issue is that nothing in either policy refers or references information collected from the usage of individual apps on each platform.

    Cropped EPG thumbnails

    Hi all, New Emby user here. On my system, my EPG thumbnails are cropped as per the attached images. I originally thought that this issue was specific to the ATV client, but tonight I noticed that this can also be observed in the "Schedule" section on the web client. Emby server running on MacOS ATV client Chrome browser IceTV EPG I have already discussed this with the IceTV folks, and at this point they assume that this must be related to how Emby handles the images. Anyone else seen this problem? Any suggestions? Thanks, Rob
  25. Hi, I have recently set up a fresh emby server (v to replace kodi on the ubuntu server (trusty) PC hooked up to my TV. So far I have used 2 clients (plus a browser on my laptop for setup). One works great: a LibreElec PC with the EmbyCon Add-on. The second client, a 4th generation AppleTV and the emby app for TVOS is causing major problems though. I decided to post in this forum, although the problem might be more on the AppleTV client's side...but I don't know. As soon as I start the emby app on the AppleTV and login to a profile, the emby server on the ubuntu server machine completely takes over the CPU (all 4 cores, i.e. 400% in top) which is an AMD Athlon 5350. My library contains approx. 500 movies (mixed codecs), 300 TV Episodes and several hundert smartphone movies and pictures,so nothing special I guess. The ATV client only shows very few of the thumbs (that loaded on the other client without problems), and it did not help to patiently wait for them to load, either. The emby server on the ubuntu server, once put into this "max cpu state" won't exit this state on its own, even if the emby app is left or the AppleTV is restarted. Only a restart of the emby server via the webIF (or a reboot of the OS) helped. I tried to get some info from the emby server log files and found the atv requesting content from the emby server . The part that might be of relevance showed some requests by "User Agent: tvOS" followed by many requests by "User Agent:" only. So - an empty entry for the user agent. I tried many things to make it work, setting up a fresh user, removing (and re-installing) the emby app (and data) from the AppleTV to no avail. I tried to mine the forums here for info and only found one post mentioning that it is the common behaviour of android based clients to flood the emby server with requests and thereby increasing cpu load. And the cure was to just wait till it is over. This did not help with the AppleTV. I have the impression that the emby.app on the ATV somehow loses the connection with the server. Both devices are connected by cable. The libreElec client that worked so well is located in another room and "only" connected via WiFi. Does anybody here possibly have an idea how to adress this? Log files could be provided later. Thanks in advance...
