    Subtitles not downloading on MacOS

    Hello, Although scheduled to run each night. The process to download any new subtitles is set to run, and does. However, it doesn't download all the subtitles, in fact it fails with the following message: ffmpeg subtitle extraction failed for file:"/Users/David/emby-server/cache/temp/23f0ce6d-0784-4cf4-afe8-dc84a7fd885f.txt" to /Users/David/emby-server/cache/subtitles I have noticed a number of the TV Show's I have on my NAS (That is connected to Emby) doesn't have subtitles. Does anyone have any ideas how I can fix this? Thanks
  3. Sry, Maybe post wrong place, but I can't delete this by myself, I'll post this to emby server/general/windows From Emby web client From potplayer From VLC player you can see the subtitle in Emby web client is very very small. the setting to change the font size in Emby web client is not useful cause the font size is written in the ass file. this one's size is 60. If needed, I can provide this .ass file.
  4. Quick question that might have a quick response. After setting up a new server, I noticed that whenever I run the "download subtitles" task it always takes over 2 hours. I thought it was normal at first since it was starting from scratch. But it's been a month and it's still taking just as long. When I opened up the log, I did notice a few errors, but I'm completely unfamiliar with it, so I do need some help deciphering it please. I believe the log includes the two times I ran it today. I'm pretty sure this question will come up, but I did sign into my Open Subtitles account (Free account, not VIP) on the dashboard. Here is a link to my log: https://filebin.net/fxsw3xneaqthg1wj/embyserver.txt?t=zt4ilqlz Definitely let me know if I can clarify anything! Thank you as always!

    Subtitle error

    Hi, i would like to run Emby for windows, I installed it and configured, but Emby don't download the subtitles. In log i can find an error: Method not found: 'MediaBrowser.Model.Globalization.CultureDto MediaBrowser.Model.Globalization.ILocalizationManager.FindLanguageInfo(System.String)' thank you for any help log.txt
  6. Hello! It would be very nice if I could make Emby cache the Subtitles from MKV files when added! Also - As a bonus, maybe some way to activate it for already added media - Sometimes it takes a little while, so it would be nice if I could do it manually a litle while before I would like to see the Movie. Is there any possibility this could be added? Or would it be hard to make? Best Regards Jonatan
  7. I'm ready to wipe this program and re-install, but really don't want to set everything up again. A month ago the only issues I had with this program were TV show episodes not going to the next one at random intervals. This problem has been systematically getting worse.and started with movies. Until Thursday or Friday, it wasn't affecting TV shows at all. Movies started pausing or skipping if the embedded subtitles were used. Often they would finally work with repeated tries. Now, unless subtitles are off or srt files are used, movies won't play. In general, I don't mind srt subtitles but they do not line up with the movie timing. Like I said, this was going on with movies but you could finish a movie and go to a TV show and the TV show would play fine. Now nothing plays right. I don't know if the Emby program settings are screwed up (a big possibility) or if part of the program has become corrupted. This is happening across several user profiles and is happening with both the LG TV and if trying to play directly in the web interface. Issues apply to DVD and Bluray. I would say 4k, but I don't know if those issues are 4k issues or these issues. But starting and stopping, especially with subtitles was first noticed on 4k movies. Oh, have seen the error "Playback Error: No compatible streams are currently available. Please try again later or contact your system administrator for details." a couple of times tonight. As soon as I "try again" the file plays. Any help whatsoever is greatly appreciated. embyserver.txt ffmpeg-transcode-6b942f4c-719a-4889-b071-cab3dd2f31da_1.txt ffmpeg-transcode-07467def-4b2e-4f35-8183-1b03a6a928a5_1.txt ffmpeg-transcode-b237b0f5-cd3e-426a-9a8b-25bb6b9a6c2b_1.txt
  8. I have been trying to figure out how to configure my Emby server/clients to do things the way I want them to. One thing I haven't been able to figure out is how to get Anime subtitles to play properly on all my devices. When I occasionally use Chrome or the Android client, which play my subtitles just fine, graphically and positioned on the screen appropriately. However my main method of playback is on my Roku TVs. Roku TVs by default appear to extract subtitles from my video files and display them using closed captioning. This is a much less visually appealing way of providing subtitles. It is especially problematic when the show I'm watching positions subtitles next to Japanese characters, which is totally lost when converting to Closed Captioning. I would like to find a best solution which allows me to have the visuals I am looking for. Right now, the only way I can find to make that happen is to begin playing a video, and then forcing playback correction twice (after using the beta, the text there says the 1st time forces remuxing and then the 2nd time forces transcoding, which at least explains why I have to do it twice) but that is not really an option I want to live with long term if I can avoid it. Ideally, there would be a way to allow the Roku client to support these subtitles (SSA in the show I tested as I am writing this, but other types as well) and display them graphically like VLC or Chrome or Android player or basically most other players out there. If this is not possible due to technical limitations, then I would rather have my videos transcoded than have to watch them with solid black closed caption boxes that are placed rigidly on the bottom of the screen. In this case, ideally I would be able to set only my Anime library to force transcoding, but not force my movies or US TV Shows. An alternate option would be to have it controlled by user, and I could create a 2nd ID for myself to watch Anime if I had to. Complicating my situation is the fact that sometimes when I select the episode I want to watch, I am presented with a pair of dropdown boxes to see what language the audio is and what subtitles are selected, while other times those boxes are not visible. I think it has something to do with selecting the video from the suggestions vs. from the Next Up section vs. selecting the title from Latest Anime and choosing the episode I want. When the dropdowns are not visible, the subtitles as captions will usually show up, but after selecting force playback correction twice, the subtitles have been turned off as transcoding is started. At this point, turning on the subtitles forces me to choose the correction option multiple additional times, each time possibly having to turn subtitles back on. Usually, once I get it to transcode with subtitles once it will continue to work with only two times selecting the correction option, and I can watch additional episodes in the same season for that viewing session with minimal additional issues. Honestly, I'm hoping that one of the devs or more knowledgeable users will point out some setting I haven't seen or some tweak in the server files that will allow me to do what I'm looking to do, or even link me to a thread where this has already been discussed and fixed which I wasn't able to find myself. Right now, I'm stuck forcing playback correction twice every 20 minutes of watching, and it is a real pain. Please let me know what I can do to assist with troubleshooting this issue if I can be of assistance. Thanks!

    Library Filter By Language

    I would suggest to add the possibility to filter the library by languages, i.e. - Allow to filter for the audio and/or subtitle language. Regards Max ( Request taken from a former github issue: https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby/issues/1782#event-982356301 )

    Subtitles can not be turned off

    Hi guys, I can't turn off subtitles in the Emby App. It says "No subtitles" in the settings and I can select "Off" in the Subtitles while playing a movie but subtitles will not disappear. I tried to reinstall the app (1.09), didn't help. If I stream the same movie from the Web App to the same TV, then I can turn off subtitles in the TV settings (maybe I could say WebOS based settings) but I would like to use the app on the TV only. Do you have any idea? Thanks, Marci
  11. 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:1029:2019-03-11 13:22:56.065 Info SubtitleEncoder: ProcessRun 'ffmpeg-subtitle_extract' Execute: /opt/emby-server/bin/ffmpeg -i file:"/srv/media/Series/Sword.Art.Online/S03/SAO.S03E21.VOSTFR.1080p.WEBRiP.x264.mkv" -map 0:2 -an -vn -c:s copy "/var/lib/emby-server/cache/subtitles/b/b3fd429fcf754f26313b86b441d5104e_636877678715979463_2_0_0_False.ass" ./embyserver.txt:1079:2019-03-11 13:23:17.462 Info SubtitleEncoder: ffmpeg subtitle extraction completed for file:"/srv/media/Series/Sword.Art.Online/S03/SAO.S03E21.VOSTFR.1080p.WEBRiP.x264.mkv" to /var/lib/emby-server/cache/subtitles/b/b3fd429fcf754f26313b86b441d5104e_636877678715979463_2_0_0_False.ass So it seems that's why subtitles are not available, but when the process is finished, Subtitle doesn't show up, I need to disable and enable them back again (and seek back to the beginning of the file). With big movies, we have to wait many minutes for the ASS to be "available". Also when streaming (from Android app) to my Chromecast (tested with Chromecast v1, v2 and Ultra), thoses ASS subtitle are not available at the begining and then, they show up, but accelerated, and are kind of out of sync with audio/video. We must stop, disconnect and restart the stream to have them properly displayed. Sometimes they don't show up at all. Let me know how I can help to debug those ASS playback issue.

    ANSWERED Subtitle Location not changing

    I have set up my Emby server a while ago, but haven't really used it much. I have been running Plex for years, but am experimenting with switching to Emby. There are a number of things I like about each. With all that said I have one issue that i can't seem to get to work properly. I have a number of movies and shows that are missing subtitles. I like the fact with Emby I can go and to each individually if needed and click download to search OpenSubtitles. I have done this but every time I do the subtitles go into the metadata location at /var/lib/emby. I have the box checked to save subtitles in the media folder. Shouldn't that save the location to the same location as the media folder? Steps taken so far Removed all SRT files from /var/lib/emby/metadata/library.... Checked the library for the "save subtitles to media location" restarted server Ran library scan Refresh metadata - replace all metadata I have even deleted the library and added it back. I did name the new library the same as the old library. Any help would be appreciated Thanks

    Subtitles folder

    Hi, I switched from Plex to Emby recently and I have one issue. With Plex I was using Subzero and Bazarr for getting my subtitles and both were downloading them in a folder named 'subtitles' in the same location of my video files. And Plex detected them but Emby doesn't. Anyone knows if emby has an option for that? I really dont want my subtitles file in the same folder than my video file and neither in my server's metadata folder. Thank you.
  14. hello everyone can somebody guide me how to add a custom font to make my emby use it for subtitles, I already have the font file and it's works like a charm in another media player but I really liked empy and I don't want to use any other platform. best regards

    Change Subtitle Font

    hi, I Start using for while now and the subtitle font looks terrible on android mobile. a lot of letter don't shows up, if somebody knows how to change the subtitle. please let me know how. Ps: I am using emby on windows, and the problem i have with Arabic Subtitle Best Regards
  18. Whatever I do, I can't watch films with subtitles. Subtitles never appear.
  19. Dumb question: If the option to only get exact subtitles is enabled - how is the match for 'exact' done? I'm assuming by filename and/or hash with a stock install (so only OpenSub plugin is enabled)? Asking because I was looking at some subs that had downloaded during my test the past 5 days. I had some files that were Filebot renamed that had some subs downloaded. It made me wonder when I saw them "How did they get downloaded if exact match was chosen"? Filebot saves the original filename in xattr - but I'm not sure if Emby reads that? It is entirely possible that while playing with settings, there was a period where I had changed the setting (I did go through all of the settings to get an idea of where everything was - but I don't *think* I changed it during the time period the subs were downloaded - but who knows, it's possible). Anyway - it made me wonder how matches were done and whether renaming files in an Emby-based system is a good practice (as opposed to leaving them as originally named.
  20. I would love the ability to increase the size of subtitles on the different platforms, specially android, chrome and roku... One additional thing that would be great would be the ability to change font color, outline, drop shadow, font background... Thank you

    default to external subtitle

    Is it possible to set my external subtitles to be the default? I see that I can set subtitles to always be on, and I can set a particular language as the default. Most of my mp4 movies have graphic subtitles in them (dvdsub), and for lots of them I also have external subtitle files (srt, sub). If I have an internal english subtitle and an external english subtitle file, it seems like Emby uses the internal as the default (the attachment is from the bottom of Emby's WebUI for one of my movies). Is there any way to set a system wide default to say "if there are external & internal subtitles for the default language, use the external subtitle"?

    Tiny Subtitles With MKV

    Hey, Thanks for your guys hard work. Emby is always a pleasure to use. I've noticed that when playing files with embedded subs, like the MKV format, the default size is tiny. Unreadable basically. When I extract the subs into an .srt file ( ffmpeg -i "%~1" "%~n1.eng.srt" ) it works fine, loading the subs as expected. Any chance Emby could work with this better automatically? Thanks
  23. I have one library of movies and it works OK except some of the movies have subtitles that does not belong to them. Automatic subtitle is enabled for English language. It downloads the subtitles but for some movies the subtitle that shows on screen is not for this movie. Opensubtitle plugin is installed and in the settings I have entered my username and password for opensubtitle. (I even checked again and I can login to opensubtitles.org with my ID and password). What could be the cause of this subtitle mismatch? PS: I have checked and unchecked "Require Hash Match" but the end result is the same. I appreciate any help in troubleshooting this.
  24. Good afternoon, I need some help. Syncing a movie or episode to Google Drive no longer has the subtitle option available. Thanks in advance

    subtitle problems

    I recently added a few TV shows on my emby server and I'm having an issue with the subtitles. The files have English subtitles, but they are mislabeled inside the mp4 files. If I look at the files using ffprobe, the subtitle and audio streams show "und" next to them (my other files show "eng" for the audio & subtitle streams). Emby seems to go on the assumption that the "und" audio streams are English, and uses them automatically. For the subtitles though, since emby does not see English subtitle streams, it follows through with the server's subtitle settings and tries to download subtitles from online. I have two questions: 1) is there a way to set emby to assume "und" language subtitle streams are English just like it does with "und" audio streams? 2) how can I set those subtitle streams in the mp4 files to have the correct label of "eng"? Thanks
