dn_angel000 posted a topic in MacOSSo I recently bought a Late 2018 Mac Mini off eBay that I just turned into a media server using Emby and I set things up (i.e. Server Settings, Media Directory Paths, Media Libraries, etc) for the TV Shows and Movies as well as Anime and Anime Movies all on separate 2TB External Drives and my Movies (Blu-Ray) that I'm using MakeMKV to rip them is set to a WD 5TB External HDD. So when I set the directory for these movies to the 5TB Drive and play these movies on my TCL Roku 4K HDR TV in the EMBY TV App I get a "Retrieving" loading come up and it "retrieves" multiple time eventually giving back an error and this happens with multiple movies when I try to play them. So what's up? Media Server Specs: Mac Mini Late 2018 3.6GHz Quad Core i3 8GB RAM (64GB upgrade yet to be installed) EMBY Server v188.8.131.52 (In Safari) EMBY App v3.0 build 212 (TCL Roku TV) Any other details you need that aren't listed just ask.
I am starting to add 4K UHD (w/ or w/out HDR) titles to my library as I own a few 4K HDR TVs, tablets, & phones. However, the majority of my streaming devices are still max. 1080p or less. When attempting to playback my 4K titles, my 720p 32" TCL RokuTVs initiate playback (green progress bar on device completes and playback shows in my server Dashboard) and then show a blank screen: no picture, no sound. I can fast-forward and rewind and the video thumbnails appear to function normally. My server hardware is fairly robust and appears to be transcoding video from h.265/HEVC to h.264/AVC and audio from 5.1 AAC to 5.1 AC3 as expected. I've tested this with both Emby and Emby Beta apps on the TV. HEVC 60p playback was disabled by default, but frame rate of movie is 24p, like all my titles, so I can't see that mattering as non-UHD movies play without issue. I was researching this in the forums extensively this morning and found what may or may not be a related issue on the Fire Stick/TV. https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/74677-hevc-10-bit-playback-on-firestick-too-many-errors/page-3?hl=%2Btranscoding+%2B1080&do=findComment&comment=792447 I checked my logs (attached) and found that the transcoder was not stepping down the resolution of the video stream from 2160 to 720. I then went and tested other videos and found that video stream with a resolution of 720p or less played fine, but anything 1080p or greater experienced the exact issue described above, to include 1080p videos encoded w/ h.264/AVC video and 5.1 AC3 audio streams that show as "Direct Playing" on the Dashboard while the device screen remains blank. Any thoughts? Emby transcode 20191007-1052.txt Emby Server 20191007-1049.txt
Hello Emby community, I hope someone can help, I have looked around the web and Emby community but have not been able to find a way to manually install Emby on my particular TV, TCL 55DP600. Sorry if this is the wrong forum topic area I did look around. Specifications of 55DP600 Processor Dual Core SmartTV 3.0 (33 languages) Native support: 4K Netflix, YouTube Web browser HbbTV 1,5 (2.0 update) Product Specifications PDF http://www.mediacenter.tcl.eu/uploads/documentdetail/39e387e52b2dd6a1efba8f900684159c273c20f7.pdf Manufatures Product Page https://www.tcl.eu/en/products/55-4k-uhd-hdr-tv-with-smart-tv-30 The inbuilt store page is a joke I almost wish I spent the extra on the inbuilt Roku version but was hoping to get around this issue once I had the TV in my hands, it is a good TV at a good price when I brought it, figured I could spend the savings later on a dedicated box if I had to (was £100 for the Roku version with a more posh bezel). Hopefully, someone would be kind enough to advise if It's possible to manually install Emby on this OS? I have already spent a few hours trying to get a working DLNA profile to work and anyway the thought of trying to get my wife and children to use the inbuilt DLNA system leaves me cold and numb. I understand trying to workaround this issue may be pointless, I know I could just go out and get a Roku or other device, I was hoping to keep the complexity down to a minimum I.E. one remote to rule them all type thing, I don't like family Tech support, Tech support is already my day job! Kind regards, DMAJ
