Gogge posted a topic in SynologyHi all, I´m new to Emby/Synology so please bare with me if I ask any dumb questions... I recently bought a new DS416 in order to consolidate all media (movies, photos, music, etc) and coming from PC/MediaPortal I have decent knowledge of how things work in general. However, I´ve ran into some issues with my Emby setup and hopefully someone else out there has experienced the same problem(s) and has a magical solution... My DS416 runs on 4 Western Digital Red NAS 3TB harddrives (SHR) with DSM version 6.1.1-15101 Update 4. Emby Server is recently upgraded to version 220.127.116.11 and is setup according to Embyserver for NAS and Synology : Setting Up Your Media Library Share. After this I´ve imported all my videos and everything seems ok except the playback which sucks... My friend who recommended Emby said something about subtitles, i.e. Emby tries to transcode certain types and therefor the CPU is constantly on ~99% (where mono eats about 49% and ffmpeg about 49%). I´m not sure what to do about that more than I´ve done below..?!? So, any help here is greatly appreciated. He also mentioned that native apps are better than 3d part, i.e. browsers, but regardless if I try to watch a movie on my Ipad (native app), my Sony Bravia (native app) or from Firefox, the playback is lagging in 90% of the cases. If/when I disable the subtitles the playback usually gets better but regardless filetype (avi, mkv, mpeg) there´s always a lag and when I check the Emby Dashboard for active devices, the playback is almost always in Transcoding Mode instead of Direct Play or Direct Streaming. Every single movie that´s lagging through Emby, works perfect with VLC from my old (network attached) computer regardless if I use subtitles or not. Besides my old computer, everything else is connected wireless, i.e. my TV, all devices, etc. I´ve also tried to use hardware acceleration; VA API and Intel Quick Sync but no change at all. My router (Asus RT-AC87U with MerlinWRT) is setup with port-forwarding and Emby has both an in-home and remote address which are tested and working. The general WiFi throughput on the LAN side is between 150-500Mbit depending on the connected device and that is sufficient for casting a 720p movie to a Chromecast on the 2d floor without any lag. I don´t intend to use the DS416/Emby to stream to multiple devices, I just want to be able to watch a 720/1080 video at home, from my Sony TV, with smooth playback and subtitles. So, my questions are: 1. Anyone else having the same problem? 2. Have I missed something in the setup? 3. Is there any other/newer ffmpeg version that´s better for my DS416? Like I said, I´m new to DS416/Emby but I know my way around computers/network/routers/etc and I´m more than willing to try out any solution that might fix my problems. Tnx in advance. Cheers,
