  1. Hello, since a few days (maybe a week) I haven't been able to play many of my videos on my Chromecast. I don't have problems sending to Chromecast videos encoded, for instance, in H264 from my Android mobile Emby app. The problem happens with - at least - videos encoded in SD-MPEG4, like the one shown in the attached image. The behaviour, in this case, is that the TV seems to start playing it, but Emby on the TV then plays only the audio, and not the video, and displays the Emby logo while doing so. Another strange behaviour I have noticed with almost the same timeframe as the p
  2. Hello. I searched a few times before starting a new topic but I didn't find something 100% the same. Anyway, come on. My EMBY works perfectly at home, both on SMARTV and on chromecast devices. However, when I leave the house, I can select the desired chromecast but it does not start playing. The play button even appears, but in a static way. I use the DYNU service for ddns, can this be the case? If anyone can help I would appreciate it very much. See you later.

    Chromecast stuck at Ready to Cast

    Hello, So I've set up emby and it's working fine through the web and through the android app (I can play on both). I can access my server through http://app.emby.media/ ass well as directly through http://<IP_ADDRESS>:8096/ (It's running on a remote server) so I know it's accessible through my home wifi. But I cannot stream anything through my chromecast (all other apps work fine on it). If I start chromecasting something from my android phone (or web browser) it only ever displays the emby logo with "Ready to Cast". No show info or images show up. If I disconnect my phone from
  4. Hi. I was running Raspbian on my pi and everything was fine but I changed to diet pi and I seem to be missing something. Setup: Ras pi 4 running DietPi v6.32.2, everything is updated. Emby 4.5.0.50. Issue: media can direct play on phone and pc. The server connects to the chrome cast, metadata casts, but as soon as I try to play something nothing happens (on either my first or second gen). I suspected that I was missing ffmpeg to allow Emby to convert the files to supported type for chrome cast but after installing from DietPi the config nothing changed. Proceeded to uninstall and re
  5. I've looked at other postings of this type but don't see anything really exactly similar to this situation - Situation: Chromecast goes black (no image or sound) after pause/resume of Live TV (on NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox) The problem only appears on Live TV - much higher resolution/bitrate/bandwidth movies do not have the problem. Android controlling Chromecast Gen 3 that is wired, not wireless - using gigabit adapter. Playback set to auto. Stream is 720p Comcast via HD Homerun Prime. Stream runs as "Direct Streaming" in the Emby dashboard. No CPU issues on
  6. Hello everyone I just migrated my Emby server to some new hardware (on the 02.10.2020) and the new installation seems to have an issue with the Chromecast, as I can connect to it but once I hit play it just stands there loading and nothing happens. I've tested everything I could think of.. local and remote Chromecast, different versions of Chromecast, different types of media, I even moved my Emby server between different OS's (tried Windows Server 2016, 2019 and Ubuntu) and it never works. Everything else is working correctly. The server does not have a custom certificate insta
  7. Hi, everything was working fine but a week ago emby web (localhost) chromecast streaming stopped working. I get the Emby logo on TV, when I press play I see a circle going around indefinitely. I can't think of anything I did last week that could have caused this. I run EmbyServer on a dual boot MacBookPro, with a separate EmbyServer installation running under Catalina (with which I have no problem streaming to Chromecast), and one under Big Sur beta 7 (with which I have this problem - but it did work until last week). Since this problem appeared I have updated to the latest version of Emby

    Chromecast

    Hey, all -- I have just a few videos that won't consistently Chromecast. Messing with rate settings and such hasn't helped. I'm running ArchLinux with Emby Server 4.3.1.0 -- I've tried a bunch of different client devices, including an Android phone, Arch laptop, and Windows. The client doesn't seem to matter. What's fun is that it's specifically Chromecast with these files. They'll play back fine in the Android app and web player, and most of my files Chromecast just fine. I've attached the Emby log statements from one attempt, and here's the file metadata. testcase.log metadata

    Volume issues.

    I have Emby setup on a Windows server 2016 box, emby was version 4.4 something but it recently updated to 4.5, both are showing the same issue. Recently videos have been playing with very low volume. On my TV I'm having to add 50 or more 'points' to the volume to get the same level of audio. On my phone the 'google home' app and emby app both report max volume. I'm seeing this with several different videos. I haven't found one that doesn't do it (checked 5 different). Unfortunately I don't play video in a browser enough to tell if browser playback is affected. I will say that chrome

    Emby low audio

    Hey all, New to Emby, having a minor bug. Audio when streamed to clients, have been using Kodi 16.01 (tested on 2 devices)(Kodi Emby plugin installed), Chromecast 1st Gen (FW ver. 1.20.66189), and a Samsung Smart TV Series 6 (DLNA), all have very low audio. I would say roughly half volume compared to when they are played via a shared network drive or via direct hard drive connect. (not using Emby). Emby server version 3.0.6400.0 running on MS Windows 10 build 10.0.14393 any help would be greatly appreciated Regards Jayden
  11. Hello, I have been having an issue with subtitles for certain films when streaming to an older Chromecast and am having a hard time pinning down the cause of this, so was wondering if anybody else is having this issue. While I have found various posts about this issue in the recent past, I have not found anything to explain and/or resolve the issue. Details: This occurs while streaming from Windows or Linux machine, so I do not think it is a problem that is related to the install or the OS. The subtitles do sh
  12. I recently set up Emby on my PC running Linux so that my mom could easily watch stuff on her Chromecast, and it worked great. I use both Windows and Linux (specifically Pop Os) and today I booted up Windows and configured Emby there too. Everything seemed to be working fine until my mom told me she was unable to get Emby working on her Chromecast (stuck on "Ready to Cast"), which seemed weird because I tried it on mine and worked perfectly. After trying several times, restarting, opening ports, etc., I just decided to try booting the server on Linux, and her Chromecast works now! The only prob
  13. First of all I love all the work that has been done for this great product and I’ve been using Emby for 2 months without a hitch. However, yesterday I noticed Emby server was only sending stereo audio to my chromecast where surround sound with a range of different transcoded codecs always worked before. I could not find an easy fix, I had the feeling it was ffmpeg related but no errors occurred and software I believe was not updated. However, the Emby logs said it was sending out a stereo signal. I reinstalled Emby Server and everything works except when Emby is casting, the chromecast fr
  14. Hello! I have a problem when streaming with Chromecast 2 gen, doesn't matter where it came from (Android, IOS, Web, etc) When watching some tv series, the playback is in great quality, smooth and RANDOMLY jump / skip to the next episode. It simply happen from NOWHERE. I don't know if it is my PC that is the problem or the chromecast itself. What kind of Logs do you guys need to check? I have at least 20 logs just from today trying to watch a single episode...
  15. Hello everyone, I'm a new emby user since a week or two. But there is a problem that keeps occuring. When a streamed a video to my chromecast it showed subtitles, but this was only the first day. Now when I try to stream the same movie (or other) it doesn't show any subtitles. When I pauze the video on mobile when it shows a subtitle and than stream it, it will show that sentence for a split second and nothing after. Context: - I run my emby server on a synology - I use opensubtitles as automatic source - self added subtitles are having the correct naming (showed at the ? in emby)

    Streaming Trailers

    I recently purchased a Google Chromecast dongle so that I could view my emby content on my bedroom TV. I'm streaming from my emby android app on my Note 9 phone. If viewing YouTube videos or local content, there is no noticeable lag accessing content. The problem arises when playing trailers from the net before the main feature. If I stream to my phone, I can watch trailers in real time, HOWEVER if I opt to stream to the Chromecast, then everything becomes so slow to load that I bypass the trailers and jump to the movie. Is this a cache issue with Chromecast, or is there a setting in emby Thea
  17. Hello, I'm on Debian 9.8 on server side, running the latest beta, but this issue is there since I upgraded to Emby 4.0. (was working fine with Emby 3.5.2/3.5.3). Tried with: - emby-server-deb_4.0.0.2_amd64.deb - emby-server-deb_4.0.1.0_amd64.deb - emby-server-deb_4.0.2.0_amd64.deb - emby-server-deb_4.1.0.10_amd64.deb - emby-server-deb_4.1.0.12_amd64.deb When playing MKV files with ASS Subtitles, tested on Firefox and Chrome (HTML5 playback), subtitles are not showing. I checked server logs, and found that ASS track is encoded/demuxed via ffmpeg: ./embyserver.txt:1029:2019-03-
  18. I really appreciate the ability to cast to my Google Home and Chromecast devices. However, it just shows "playing emby" on the screen instead of showing what is playing. It would be a nice refinement if Emby would show what is being played with title, description, and artwork. How it looks currently:
  19. Hi, I would like to direct play a movie to my Chromecast Ultra but i can't.... I can't understand why because here https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/Chromecast, it says that MKV is supported by Chromecast, but when I try to play it it says "The media is compatible with the device regarding resolution and media type (H.264, AC3, etc.), but is in an incompatible file container (.mkv, .avi, .wmv, etc.). The video will be re-packaged on the fly before streaming it to the device."... Do you know why ? log.txt embyserver.txt
  20. So I've been beginning to setup cloudflare for my Emby server. Now I was wondering for anyone that has had experience doing this that may be able to shed some light on my concern ( I know there are more than a couple of threads but nothing really touching on this). I use Firesticks and occasionally Chromecasts mainly as my client devices (mixed with some iPhones). All of these devices REQUIRE a signed cert in order to connect and stream from while using the Emby built apps. I am currently using Lets Encrypt for my domain. I was wondering now, if I go through cloudflare and have to use thei
  21. Current Emby server setup in remote location behind nginx reverse proxy over HTTPS cannot cast to any devices. "Play on" menu is perpetually empty. "Enable DNLA Play To" is checked. User has max permissions. Locally installed server would list "My Device" but even this is not listed...
  22. Hi folks, I can stream perfectly from my Android phone to my 2 CCA's, can I not do this from Emby Theatre on my laptop? The CCa's don't show up as an endpoint? TIA J

    Edit chromecast main page

    Hi! First of all, congratulations to develop this magnificent app. I have a request, but I don't think that it's possible (hopefully yes). Is there any way I can edit the content of the ChromeCast main window (screensaver)? Like logo, message "Ready to cast" and the background. It would be great if it could be edited, especially to translate that message into Spanish in the Emby Server options. Thank you so much for your attention. Kindly regards.

    Chromecast Video and Subtitle Issues

    Hi, first time using emby. I have a Ubuntu server, the install went fine. Some issue I'm having: The web app, regardless if I'm using the local site or remote one, does not see any of my chromecast devices. I've only been able to chromecast from my Android phone. I've checked on my chrome browser on both my Ubuntu machine, and my windows machine. When a try to play on my chromecast ultra, the video image is bad, but the sound is fine. Sometimes subtitles work, sometimes they don't show up at all. (See attached image "chromecast_ultra.jpg", subtitles showed up in this instance). On a stand
