  1. 1st time user to Emby. Installed Emby "Premier" version com.emby.embyserver_4.5.4.0.apk on my NVIDIA SHIELD TV Pro with latest NVIDIA updates. Testing with Avatar 1080p and 1080p 3D in MKV containers or file formats. (My legal ripped content. ) I am getting choppy Video stream or buffering not sure. I noticed in the attached log file that there are "Could not find codec parameters for stream" items. Not sure if this has anything to do with the issue. I ran Emby Server on a standalone windows 10 desktop (AMD Phenom II X6 109T 3.2GHz with 8GB or RAM on the same net
  2. I have a few family members that use my emby server remotely for years now w/o issue. But within the last few months some locations have been seeing issues. I'm in Chicago with a 185/15Mbps connection. I have family in Chicago, Tampa, Atlanta and Phoenix. Now the family in Chicago(remote) and Phoenix have not reported any issues. But the Family in Atlanta and Tampa have. The ones in Tampa have tried playing on an XBox One, Android phone, Chromecast and IPad. They start a video and it stutters for a few seconds before getting worse to the point of stopping. But when they use a F
  3. Hello, I'm running into an issue where 4k HDR content is buffering on my Nvidia Shield, its all local content so its not taking it from the internet. The only thing i notice different is that some content is "direct playing" and the one that buffers is "Direct Streaming" both types of content appear to be the same, both are MKV. i will be spending most of my day tomorrow to try and figure out what could be causing these issues, so any help would be appreciated. for reference 1080p content plays perfectly with no issues at all. i have attached a couple of l
  4. Hi guys, I am running Ubuntu 18.04 fully updated. Everything worked until I upgraded to I stream to a Roku device on a wi-fi network. The problem is that when I start a movie it buffers a while, then plays 2-3 minutes, buffers again, then after a couple more buffering sequences it hangs showing the buffering screen. At that point, Roku tells me to check the connection. We stream TV from our Viasat satellite. All of that works perfectly weather allowing. The wi-fi and internet components pass the Roku test without problem. Gnome network manager says that the wi-fi network i
  5. Good Day, I hope everyone is well, I require some assistance and advice, i have Emby linked to an external server and use it on the following devices: 1) Windows (Emby Theater) 2) Android Phone (Emby for Android) 3) Android TV (Emby for Android TV) when i playback the media on windows it plays perfectly but if i attempt to use my phone or android tv it constantly buffers (even if i reduce the quality). I am using the same internet connection (network) and external server on all devices, Is there a setting i am missing on the android apps which is causing these issues? Your assistance a
  6. I'm honestly not sure how to set up the technical specs so its possibly I just don't have something set up correctly but I constantly experience lag issues with larger file movies. This usually only happens with large (20G+) files. Most of these are 4K so I'm thinking thats the issue but I have no idea how to fix this. Any help is appreciated. I watched Dr. Strange for a few seconds until it started stuttering and attached the log ffmpeg-transcode-96e53d5e-0834-4512-8939-ff94567a371e_1.txt
  7. Hi, I'm having issues with playback on my Samsung TV, particularly higher bitrate videos such as my own 1080p iMovie edits. The videos are all in mp4 format and as far as I can tell are direct play. I have a Virgin Media hub 3.0 and a mid-2010 iMac as the server. Any ideas what could be causing this? I've attached a log from shortly after an attempt to play a video which kept buffering. My TV model is QE49Q67RATXXU. Many thanks. embyserver.txt

    Live TV Setup + Playback Issues

    Hello: I am a recent convert to Emby from Plex. I am trying to set up live tv with an iptv m3u account. Everything works, however, Playback buffers, skips, or “loops” (goes back several seconds or minutes) and replays. I have searched the forums for solutions and tried several options, but the issue keeps occurring. I need help with the following: Are my settings correct (will post below). Could it be from my freenas server? (set up below). Would a faster internet connection solve the issue? I have attached the Emby Server log and ffmpg log. Emby (freenas) server settings: Ena
  10. Cross-post from other topic I have some buffering problem in the app, even when transcoding is not needed. I have done some research. Buffering occurs most likely in the LG App because the server is almost idle when done with the "transcoding". After a couple of minutes, it starts buffering / stuttering, mostly within 2 minutes. When I skip through the movie, buffering is gone (even on the scenes where it first buffered, so it is not TS related), but re-appears within minutes. Pressing pause and play doesn't resolve it. At this moment I understand why there is some trans
  11. Hi. I'm getting enough buffering to be annoying, both on HD and standard channels. I just checked my server log during the last episode and found this at the time it happened: 2018-04-30 12:22:04.604 Error HttpServer: Error in HttpListenerResponseWrapper: An established connection was aborted by the software in your host machine *** Error Report *** Version: Command line: C:\Users\admin\AppData\Roaming\Emby-Server\system\EmbyServer.dll Operating system: Microsoft Windows NT 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 64-Bit OS: True 64-Bit Process: True User Interactive: True
  12. I have done tons of tests and come to find out my bandwidth of 250mbps up on fiber isn’t an issue. My computer itself is not the issue which I have 4 – 2tb server drives in raid 0 for speed and copies on my movies on other drives as well. I’m running Windows Server 2012 with an i7-2600k and 32 gigs of ram. I have 2 test subjects which 1 is in Canada and the other is in Texas and I reside in Indiana. I have wiped my OS coming from Win 10 going to Win 2012 server. I use a SMB Netgear JGS516PE managed switch with a Nokia ONT for my fiber connection. So I’m going to keep it short as buffer issues
  13. Hi All, Since 2010, I had WMC running on Windows 7 PC and old MediaSmart x280n extenders. I have switched over to Emby backend and Kodi Jarvis 16.1 frontend and am currently an Emby Premier subscriber. I have a Beelink GT1 DDR3 2G Android Box connected to my network by Ethernet, the Emby backend is running on Windows 7 PC. Initially, I downloaded the Emby app from Google Play and ran that as a front end. It streamed the live TV and PVR recordings perfectly—no buffering at all. I then installed the Kodi add-on as per instructions in the kodi.wiki Add-on: Emby. I installed the Stab

    Constant buffering

    This program constantly buffers and I have lightning fast internet. Wanted to try something different but this clearly has light years to go
  15. The TV shows on my MB will skip or start buffering at the last minute of the showing. The whole show will play fine, but once it reaches the last minute it will pause for a few seconds as if it is buffering, then it will play for a few seconds, then pause again. I checked to see if my movies were doing this, but no, only the TV Shows I have in my media. I played it on a regular media player and it played through just fine without any problems. I also tried it on my Roku and they worked fine. It's just through the Media Browser through Chromecast. But like I said, all the movies

  17. Hi MediaBrowser Community! First post, but I've been using the mediabrowser standalone and apps pretty much since their release - I've been a long time Win MC user and I'm loving the direction things are headed with MB (I'm almost ready to ditch MC entirely!) The issue I'm having is:: When streaming media to the windows store app remotely via wifi or 3G, playback is stopped frequently with the buffering message. This occurs on both a surface tablet and a Toshiba encore tablet. I have the transcode quality settings in the app set to low however changing this setting does not seem
