  1. I have emby APP installed on my Synology NAS. If I use my Roku Ultra (also using emby APP) to stream personal videos from my Synology server, everything is working good. If I use my Amazon FireStick (with emby APP), a lot of my videos are upside down or sideways. Videos were recorded using my iPhone. Thanks
  2. 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 their SSL, will that cause issues with such devices? I am very interested in using this method, but losing the functionality of those client platforms would be a deal breaker. Was using this link as a guide: https://blog.awelswynol.co.uk/2018/01/setting-up-cloudflare-with-emby

    Start active recording from beginning

    Been having an issue lately that I have gotten more intimate with the quarantines going on. Over the past couple of days when an active recording on Live TV is happening, I selected the channel via the guide with the active recording and opted to play from beginning. Sometimes it will hang at the spinning circle, other times it will load a frozen frame and sit (my sever shows it is streaming with the time counter moving forward), and sometimes it will stream for a couple seconds then hang up (server side showing it is still streaming). When checking the server side it has sometimes showed direct playing and other times showed transcoding, however end issue is consistent regardless. If I play the channel that is being recorded and play live, there are no issues. I had a similar issue on my PS4 as well a few weeks back (previous server release) where I was playing an active recording from the beginning but could not fast forward or rewind without it going all the way back to the beginning of the recording. Tuner is an HDHomerun Prime and I have a dedicated Readynas Ultra 6 upgraded to 4GB of RAM and OS 6.10.3, 6x2tb drives Raid 5 for DVR. Performance of the NAS is not an issue. My Emby server runs on a Windows Server 2008 R2 VM with plenty of resources on a SATA SSD with 310GB of local storage available to it. Any help would be appreciated.
  5. Hello, I sent in the log from the fire stick Emby app. Additional details request for posting logs are below: I was clicking resume on a 4k HVEC file of "The Martian". This occurred on 3/24/2020 at 11:39 pm Eastern Standard Time (EST). The name of the local user logged in was "Michael". If there is more information needed please let me know. The 4k video is in .mkv format and for what I can see in the dashboard while attempting to play the video is it tried to convert it to a format but stops and attempts 3 times. Then on the firestick give the error "Too many errors". Thanks for the assistance.
  6. The subtitles are not working during playback and not automatically downloading like i think they are supposed to be since I have signed up for Open Subtitles. And even when I download the exact subtitles for my video file, I cannot make them display. There is not the option to select the subtitles even when I place them in the same folder video file. They used to work ok, until about the time I updated to
  7. Hello, I bought the Amazon USB / HDMI dongle, the Amazon Fire Stick - Basic. (Https://www.amazon.com/Fire-Stick-Basic-International-Version/dp/B01ETRGE7M/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1534066629&sr=8-11&keywords=fire+stick) It is an excellent product and I highly recommend it to everyone. I then downloaded the "Emby for Fire TV" app and PAY IT for to use it and to give you support. It works very well, however I would like to ask you if it is possible to insert the possibility to see the trailers (because I have not been able to use them) as you can do with the pc browser version of your program / server. I remain available for information about it and thank you for any reports / suggestions.
  8. On any major or minor server update, ie (3.x to 4x. or 4.0.x to 4.1.x) our remote users have to remove their configuration (reset cache and data) and re-enter the server information on fire sticks and fire tvs. Otherwise they are unable to login. This has been the case for the last couple years on emby. I've validated this on several of our emby systems (we have several servers). Any ideas? I've filed a bug here
  9. I have Kodi Leia 18 and have installed addons and not a single one shows any content on both my MacBook and my Fire stick. I enabled unknown sources and have an VPN service, I've tried eeeverything..how do I fix this? Thanks(:
  10. I'm regularly having to force stop Emby in my Fire TV's settings. This topic is covered in this thread(https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/48586-firestick-black-screen-when-opening-emby/) but it is from June 2017 and I have not found anything more recent. Has this been addressed since then? I am experiencing exactly what is being described in the thread, IE black screen after returning to Fire TV home and then restarting Emby after using another app. It's not the end of the world to have to force stop constantly but it seems like something that should have been dealt with if it was known about over a year ago. Have I missed some update? I am currently running Version on Amazon Fire from a Windows 7 PC.
  11. I wanted to install Kodi on Firestick and found this guide. Kodi on Firestick - Jailbreak Firestick I got Kodi successfully, they have also provided guide to install Unofficial Youtube TV App. Is anybody using Youtube TV APP? Is there any way to get original Youtube. I tried to find on Google and Youtube but I can't get. Any help would be appreciated.

  14. I have my Gen1 Firestick connected to Epson 2045 Projector which is paired with Yamaha Receiver thru Bluetooth. Emby app doesn't start and shows a blank screen when it's paired via bluetooth already. ( same happens when i pair Firestick with any bluetooth speaker connected to my TV ). If i unpair bluetooth speaker, emby opens up without any issue and i can quickly try to pair bluetooth speaker while Emby is opened in background and can use Emby then. I have tried to sideload Android Emby app onto Firestick and was able to use it when paired with bluetooth. Sorry for the repost, posting it with proper title to see if any others having same issue. Can anyone please check. https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/38784-unable-to-open-emby-app-on-firestick/ Can the Amazon Firestick app be fixed. thank you.
  15. So got the firestick for Christmas. Installed Emby. After the entering the pin and getting the confirmed and thank you I Tried to login manually on firestick with emby user id and password and it tells me Invalid user id or password. I've tried selecting the log in with Connect on firestick but it just freezes up the entire screen for a good 3 minutes and does not let me log in. I've uninstalled the app and deleted data and cache several times. Each time I have the same result. I am seeing that I'm on the server because I see the user ids to choose from. I see my user id too and click on it and I still get invalid user id or password. I'm able to log on to the emby website with my user id and password just fine. Any ideas?
