Hi, I've just bought Surface Pro (i5 7300u) and installed EmbyTheater from Windows Store. Problem is, that when I try to play 1080p h264 video playback is slow/choppy/unwatchable. Emby Server (DS916+) is saying, that's DirectPlay so no transcoding issue here, nor problems with paths. Also I've tried to use VLC to play mkv directly from NAS share - playback started immediately and was smooth. Maybe something with codecs incorporated in UWP ET is wrong? Also - checked tv.emby.media on Edge - no luck. Meanwhile 4k Youtube does fine ... TL;DR; Surface plays h264 fine, but not from EmbyTheathere where it's choppy/slow.
heerssimpson posted a topic in General/WindowsI currently have a HTPC WMC with xbox 360 extender set up. I am looking to move to the following setup: Surface Pro 2 as a dedicated HTPC, Ethernet into my router. Roku ethernet client. I will need a NAS or other storage to store all my media, obviously the Surface Pro will not cut it. It will not be the server, just the storage. What do you recommend? I would like to use Live TV a lot (currently have an hdhomerun setup). Any recommendations while I try to set this up?
