    emby random buffer with rclone

    hello, ive been using emby for 2 months now with no problems but suddenly now i am getting these random buffers everyday and the only way to fix it is to reboot my whole server. i play any random video in the library, it starts playing normally but then it stops to buffer after maybe 10 seconds or less, after it stops at that first point it then plays and stops every 1 or 2 seconds to buffer. its like not even eating up bandwidth of the person watching the video to buffer the video i am hosting the emby server on my server which is on debian 10, has 32gb ram, i7 4770, 117MB/s downloa

    Considering Emby can it...

    Greetings been using a alternative media server for years, But now i finally need to find something better. Looking at Emby looks nice but from a technical point i have a few questions if i may. Emby uses sqlite3 afaik this is really troublesome for large media servers (12TB) even with db on dedicated zfs pool no compression etc. it still is shaky at best imho, mind you this all from experience with my current server wich might be just using sqllite3 wrong not an expert on DB's. How is the performance/stability on emby with large db's, And are there alternatives mysql ? How do
  3. hey guys, not sure if this request has been made or not if it has i apologize. just been uploading some more movies to my server and just came up with a feature that would be very cool to have if possible, when you first play a movie/tv show it would buffer for a lil bit and same for skipping forward or back. instead of having just a plain circle it would be really cool if we could have the dvd image rotating as it loads the data. and if people dont have dvd images downloaded it would then use a default circle like it currently is.

    Live TV IPTV (M3U) playback repeat

    Hello, I have livetv set up to use an m3u file. It mostly plays back ok, but sometimes it plays about 15 to 30 seconds, then repeats that same 15 to 30 seconds. Sometimes it will do that between one and 3 or 4 times (repeat the same 15 seconds) and sometimes it will do it once and carry on playing and be fine thereafter. Sometimes however, it will never break out of that repeat loop and will just constantly re-play the same 15 to 30 second clip over and over. This doesn't happen if i play the same m3u with VLC or the IPTV provider's app, so my assumption is that it is not the stream that'

    Random pauses during playback.

    So I figured I'd start my own tread here since all the other playback threads are covering a variety of different issues and wanted to be more specific. I used to have this issues with "AVI" files where when playing would random pause about 2 seconds every 30 to 60 seconds though episodes. I do not have this issue playing the file directly and it's currently using direct play when I watch. I use google chrome as my browser and mostly watch stuff from chrome. When the issue happens it seems the little white buffer bar goes about 30 seconds at a time until the buffer runs out, it pause

    Streaming buffer options

    I would like the ability to have up to the full video file to buffer to a client. Wanting this option for load balancing so that when only 1 person is watching, it will buffer that client up to it's video. Currently it only buffers up to a couple minutes ahead.
  7. I have an issue with emby. When I play a movie remotely it has to be transcoded most of the times because I've set a remote bandwith limit to 4,5 Mbps. The problem is that the client isn't buffering correctly/enough when watching a transcoded video. For example I start a movie and pause it, the buffering stops after about five seconds. I monitor the network traffic with iftop and I can see it in the client too, as kodi and emby clients show a grey bar indicating the buffering progress. With directplay it's all fine. It buffers minutes or even the whole video depending on the client and it's bu
  8. I attached logs directly from Emby Server on my QNAP TS251 at 10:05 CST username logged in "Mike". Started log on Channel 11 at about 9:50, only one freeze, switched to Channel 5 at 9:58 and the "normal" freezing (occurring every minute or so, with a 5-10 second delay). Network is gigabit ethernet direct wired to Android TV (device X96mini version 7.1.2) running Emby for Android TV Version 1.5.32g. Can use HDHomerun app and no freeze. Playback movies, and stream from HBO, no freeze. Only live TV. Settings are default. Freezing happens on every channel. Suggestions? Thank

    When 2 users view the same video

    Hi, I don't know how this works so please forgive me if I'm wrong. If 2 or more users play the same video , let's say that first user already have the full movie trans-coded and buffered, when second user play the same video why have to trans-code again the entire movie if is already trans-coded by the first one ? Maybe is just a dumb question All I want to know is a little bit more how it works

    Android Playback Buffer

    Doesn't the android client keeps some kind of buffer? If I replay the song, it still takes a while, cause it wants to start streaming from the server again; is it not already buffered? Also, if I skip back to beginning, shouldn't it just start playing. It seems it's contacting the server again to get data, something it already played. The track is like 3 minutes long. It doesn't buffer anything at all?

    Web Client Buffering Video

    Hi, I work in a remote location with TERRIBLE connection speeds. I use to watch AFL on the WatchAFL website, but they no longer buffer. You know - when you watch a YouTube video, and you press pause, and you can see the light grey bar move ahead indicating that part of the video has been downloaded/buffered? Now when I hit Pause, wait for 5 minutes, and hit Play - nothing has been downloaded in advance. This buffering allowed me to press pause, and wait an hour for it to 'download' so I could watch it stutter free. So, I downloaded the mp4 video files on my home computer, and added
  12. I am having trouble streaming shows from my media storage to my players. I have a FireStick which appears to stream the TV shows fine, but can not handle any of the movies I have downloaded. It pauses frequently to let them buffer. I also have a WD TV Live that can find the EMBY server but then reports an error that it cannot play the file type of the movie when accessed as a mediaserver. If I connect it as a windows share, it will play the files but again there is a lot of lag and buffering. Still new to this whole setup. Let me know if there is more information that you need.
  13. I've been experiencing streaming issues in the last couple of weeks. It used to stream fast and smooth and now even when i turn the quality down to the point where it's almost unwatchable (144p), it still pauses/buffers. I'm running a AMD A8 quad-core 3.0GHz cpu w/ 16GB of ram and when I monitor the system, ffmpe.exe is maxing out all 4 cores. Did something change in the transcoding configuration because I've been using MB/Emby for years and never had an issue before. In fact, I used to run it on a slower system (3-cores, lower cpu speed and half the ram) about a year ago and it still ra
