    Browser DirectPlay Codecs

    Hi Everybody I looked for it a bit, but unfortunately I wasn't able to find it. I'm looking for the list of codecs and file formats that each browser can read by DirectPlay and ones causing DirectStream. I need these because I use Emby at home and I only play my stuff on my TV that support almost everything but not my computer (when I'm in my bed) that plays via browser (Chrome). Is there someting there that I missed ? The best solution would be a compatibility matrix like that Video Codec Sound Codec Playing x264 MP3 DirectPlay x264 AAC DirectPlay x264 DTS DirectStream x265 all Transcode Cause, untill now, when I download someting, I re-encode Audio with AAC, and video to x264 to ensure DirectPlay will occur, but is there a better Audio Codec ? No matter the bandwith here, cause all plays occur via LAN or WiFi... Many thanks for your answers

    directstream in browser

    I have been testing another app and I realize when I play a video in the web browser there is no hit to the cpu but when played in emby the cpu jumps to nearly 100% because the video is being transcoded. The other app is just transcoding the audio without touching the video and the bitrate is just 3 mbps on a local network. How can I get the same behavior in emby if possible?
  3. 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
  4. Need a little help here. I'm very much enjoying Emby, but I'm having issues when watching movies in the browser (updated Chrome v67...). I look forward to working while playing a movie on a spare monitor. Some movies play very well with DirectStream while others are almost unwatchable when transcoding. I'm trying to figure out what's triggering the transcoding/preventing DirectStream. Some hopefully helpful info All video files are .mkv (ruling out .iso incompatibility in browser play) My blu ray copies all use DirectStream - ruling out server hardware, bandwidth, quality settings, 5.1 conversion to 2.0, and other potential bottle necks when playing lower quality/non-blu ray content I thought it might be subtitles, but transcoding continues even after turning off subtitles Below is my 'stats for nerds'; attached is my transcoding log Happy to re-convert files so that Emby is happy and defaults to DirectStream. Thank you! emby transcode log.txt
