Hi there, I've set up my old PC as a standalone server running Emby, along with Windows AD, DHCP and DNS Services. Specs are an i5-7400, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, 120GB SATA boot drive, and a Storage Space with 2x4TB HDDs and a 500GB NVMe SSD for cache. I've mostly been using the server for streaming my music collection (which I'm still building on!) However, I've been trying streaming films/TV Shows from my server, and I've started to have a few problems. The issues I've been having mainly relate to my LG Smart TV (43UN8100), but also my Xbox One S. When I stream video on the Smart TV, it usually stutters and results in me not being able to comfortably watch the video. This seems to happen regardless of the resolution of the video/whether I'm direct-playing or transcoding. When I'm playing the videos on the Xbox, they start off playing fine, but then the Xbox will start dropping frames like a madman while still playing the audio. This has been tested using the Emby Theater apps and the native DLNA apps on both the Xbox and the LG TV. This perplexes me as the videos play fine on my Windows 11 PC, my Samsung Tab S7+, and also on my Note20 Ultra (I've even tested this over 5G and it plays fine). With regards to my network setup, the LG TV, Windows 11 PC and the Xbox are connected via Ethernet. My Note20 and Tab S7 are both on Wi-Fi or 5G. It seems like the issue could be device-related, but I'm unable to work out where the issue would lie. I've also taken a look at my Task Manager on the server while streaming, and the server doesn't seem to be overloaded or stressed at all. I've noticed that the network speed on the NIC fluctuates while streaming, but I'd assume this is normal? The videos themselves are encoded as H.264 with the highest bitrate being 44Mbps. Some of the videos are 1080p/30fps, others are 4K/24fps. I genuinely can't figure out what I'm doing wrong here, so I'm hoping someone can set me on the right path. Thank you! embyserver.txt
Bit of a long post here. I am having issues with CoverArt as well (I think) from Emby Server. Example of issue; I have a movie - Alita in 1080. 4K & 3D. All 3 versions reside in the same folder allowing to have one movie entry with 3 versions listed to select from. In the case of my 3D movies, I have them located in a separate folder, along with their other versions, from my non-3d movies. I do this so I am able to set CoverArt to add the 3D indicator to the Poster. Here's the catch; The 3D indicator won't appear on the poster UNLESS I go into the metadata and add the 3D Format to it. Once that is done and I re-select the poster image the 3d indicator is applied. BUT, this causes another issue. When I do the above, the Version drop-down to select which version to watch changes the "3D' to "3D/3D" for an option. I am uploading screen shots to help explain the issue. Appreciate any help that can be provided! Folder structure. Movie Version selection and NO 3D indicator. Metadata without the 3D format selected. I select the 3D format and save the metadata I edited images and selected my poster preference. This is the new display. 3D indicator shows but now the versions is "3D\3D"
