    Ass direct play

    Hi, so today I updated the emby app on my LG tv and now it always wants to transcode the media, whereas before the update it was direct play even with ass subtitles. Thai feature was of the things I chose Emby. Please help resolve this issue, or does anyone know how to rollback to previous emby version on lg tv? Thanks
  2. I've seen that some files are being remuxed (changed from mp4 to ts, no changes in video or audio codec) whitout apparent reason. Can somebody give me a clue why this file is being converted from mp4 to ts copying both the video and the audio? The device where is being seen is able to do DirectPlay but insted it is DirectStreaming. Thanks, can provide more info if needed. ffmpeg-directstream-f118d222-127c-45bf-b8f8-f4943b9f68be_1.txt

    Tips for Codecs and Fileformats

    Hi, after some testing on different devices and with different media I noticed that almost all files transcode which reduces quality and sometimes makes playback shutter. My main Playback devices are Firefox on Windows, The Emby app for Tizen(Samsung) and the Android app. My Films and Series are all in mkv container. Most are DVD Rips in Mpeg2 Codec, some are Bluray Rips in Mpeg4 codec and I think also a few in HEVC. Even Musicvideos in H.264 seem to transcode. All transcode to H.264(AVC) if played from Firefox on Windows, Firefox on Android and emby app on Android. So is H.264(AVC) the

    Direct Play - Cannot Fast Forward

    Hello, I've been using FreeNAS on windows for a couple of years now and a few days ago a bit the bullet and built a NAS with FreeNAS. I went the plugin route for emby and everything has been working fine, that is until I tried to fast forward with my Kodi using the Companion. The image just went to black and stopped playing altogether. Now here's the kicker, I'm not having problems when transcoding the videos, it only happens if I have play a video and the bitrate is over 10Mbps. To bypass this issue, I've had to make it so that the playback forces a transcode using 1080p 10mbps on t
  5. I've found an unusual issue. I typically name my H.264 files as .M4V. Using that extension, with a stock multi-track movie (2 chan HE-AAC as the first track and AC3 5.1 as the second), it will default to the stereo track, and only Direct Stream the 5.1 track. If I rename the file to a .MP4 extension, it does DirectPlay without issue and auto-selects the 5.1 track without issue. The info indicates it is doing Direct Stream with M4V due to the container. I've used M4V on many many servers, with this audio setup and none had an issue with the container/codec setup. I'm not sure if this is by
  6. Im having some issues with playing back my media collection. Let me start by telling you what equipment I have: Emby & my media are on a Synology DS418play (Hardware acceleration: VA API enabled, DLNA not enabled in Emby). My playback client is a Samsung 7 series tv with the emby app. All of my media is .mkv in x265 Most of my media is 1080p, while some like in this example is 2160p (or 4K) Glitches dont just occur in 2160p files. For example, I get artifacts playing back The Simpsons (1080p x265 mkv) The glitches range from a few seconds of video freeze while audio is still playing
  7. Preface All of the media I'm testing have previously worked flawlessly in the current environment. Meaning my network topography/speed has not changed. I cannot say for sure when this problem began as I rarely need to use a browser to access my Emby personally, however I had a user report issues a few weeks ago. I gave it very little thought until I had reason to use a browser recently and I ran into problems. Problem Recently (within the last few weeks), Emby playback within my web-browser has begun giving me the following error: Testing I have tested with various browser
  8. Hello guys, After running Plex for a long time, I decided to switch to an opensource alternative, given all the new anti-privacy measures taken by Plex. I'm having a problem however: I did a fresh install of Emby 3.2.34.0 in a LXC container running Ubuntu 16.04, the server is not powerful enough to transcode high quality stuff, but this is not necessary. However, even when I do a DirectPlay, the CPU is utilised at 100% in the FFMPEG process, even though transcoding is disabled for the user requesting the stream, the stream play just fine, but it is strange to see this process running wh
  9. Dears, 1stly, my wishes to all for a shiny 2017!!! I would like to express my appreciation for the valuable efforts & support within this Emby "Technosystem"! Now that Subtitles and Resume functionalities are fully working on Samsung Smart TVs via DLNA, I would appreciate considering support for Direct Play of LiveTV content to DLNA smart TVs. In my case, the Live TV content is an M3U list of HTTP-based mpeg-ts streams (.TS), which is currently direct-played to DLNA TV through XUPNPD DLNA media server. Having the same level of functionality through Emby Media server will be a great add

    Question about direct play

    Hi, If i'm on the same LAN and have access to the same folders that Emby has, why do my files not direct play when I watch them via the browser Also, how do i check that Emby for WMC is playing direct play? Emby server is running in a docker on unRaid. thanks Griz
  11. I have multiple video files that used to direct play or direct stream just fine and now it is attempting to transcode these videos and seems to not even be able to start the transcoding. Emby log Points to a stream.mkv that isn't being created. Regardless I don't want transcoding. I don't understand why these videos that were once flagged as supported for direct play are now saying unsupported. This issue seems to coincide with a recent server update. I have attached my server log, ffmpeg-directstream log, and the media info for one of the video files no longer playing. Any help in getting
