    Play with an External device

    My Emby Server setup: ESXi 5.5 : Xeon E3 1240V2 - Guest VM : Debian 7 server (command-line) - 4 cores 12GB RAM. I’m an Emby newbie so after testing the latest version (Version 3.0.5621.4) it seems that Emby can’t play MKV video material on a web browser (Safari, Firefox, Chrome) and on a Panasonic Viera TV. So my question is : is there a way to send "smb/cifs network video file path" to VLC when i click « Play with an external player » in Emby web page because it’s, for me, the only way to have a full HD video quality. I’m not sure that a web browser will ever do the job. It would combine great interface/presentation/pictures in Emby and full quality of direct video file playback. At least a way to create a custom metadata field "direct file path" for copy/paste it on VLC or Mplayer X ? I love Emby web portal interface and features for Photo/Music playback but not for HD movies. Others Media center suffers from the same problem. I hoppe I've missed something ... Best for your support
