  1. Hi, I have last Emby client installed from USB on Model: Samsung UE48JS8500 Firmware: 1550 Emby client: 1.0.78 When I play song in flac format I see: Playback Error: No compatible streams are currently available. Please try again later or contact your system administrator for details. I have Emby server on Rpi4 (Dietpi). Flac work on Kodi connected to my server, android smartphone and laptops with Chrome. Does Samsung Tizen support Flac on Emby? Regards Przemek

    FLAC 7.1 to LG WebOS?

    Not sure if this is the right place for this, however having re-ripped all my media using FLAC given the lack of license with Synology (and others) for DTS, I am wondering why Emby is not handling the native 7.1 streams on 'newer' blu-rays and 4K UHD and outputting them as 5.1 to clients. Maybe this is an LG specific thing, as a quick test playing on Android phone and through the browser on my desktop (2ch) seems OK? All I get through my LG 65" OLED (2018) is a blank screen and no sound, and on the LG 32" LCD a high pitched buzz/whistle. Going back to Plex (which I am trying to get away from), they play OK on both. Presumably Emby is also using some FFmpeg library (same as Plex), so there would be no benefit in me installing the one from the SynoCommunity? Any help would be much appreciated. I don't really want to re-rip or remux my library having already done it once to FLAC.... Cheers, Mark
  3. Hi, I'm often playing shuffled libs quietly & continuously in the background while working - and annoyingly it stops every now & then. I usually run a browser ( eg chromium / chrome ) as emby client - the server is running in docker. Today I was annoyed enough to take a closer look On this occasion I found it to be reproducible for all songs in an album (all flac). Browsewr UI pops up a window with 'Playback error - No compatible streams are currently available. Please try again or contact your system administrator for details.' Browser console shows 204 & 206 Status with msg: playing url: http://192.168.43.9:8096/emby/Audio/42240/universal?UserId=53fdc847e3b04f3b8281b03619eb463d&DeviceId=TW96aWxsYS81LjAgKFgxMTsgTGludXggeDg2XzY0KSBBcHBsZVdlYktpdC81MzcuMzYgKEtIVE1MLCBsaWtlIEdlY2tvKSBVYnVudHUgQ2hyb21pdW0vODAuMC4zOTg3LjE2MyBDaHJvbWUvODAuMC4zOTg3LjE2MyBTYWZhcmkvNTM3LjM2fDE1ODc2MjgyNTk3MjM1&MaxStreamingBitrate=140000000&Container=opus%2Cmp3%7Cmp3%2Cmp2%2Cmp3%7Cmp2%2Caac%7Caac%2Cm4a%7Caac%2Cmp4%7Caac%2Cflac%2Cwebma%2Cwebm%2Cwav%7CPCM_S16LE%2Cogg&TranscodingContainer=aac&TranscodingProtocol=hls&AudioCodec=aac&api_key=0827f942e5f643549b913694eaf345a4&PlaySessionId=1588098545010&StartTimeTicks=0&EnableRedirection=true playbackmanager.js?v=4.4.2.0:1 Active player: {"name":"Web Audio Player","id":"htmlaudioplayer","playerName":"Web Audio Player","playableMediaTypes":["Audio"],"isLocalPlayer":true,"supportedCommands":["GoHome","GoToSettings","VolumeUp","VolumeDown","Mute","Unmute","ToggleMute","SetVolume","SetAudioStreamIndex","SetSubtitleStreamIndex","SetMaxStreamingBitrate","DisplayContent","GoToSearch","DisplayMessage","SetRepeatMode","PlayMediaSource","PlayTrailers","ToggleFullscreen"]} playbackmanager.js?v=4.4.2.0:1 playbackmanager playback error type: mediadecodeerror I believe this corresponds to the following in the server logs: 2020-04-28 20:30:41.306 Info MediaInfoService: User policy for Fred.

Using metaflac I saw the file contains 4 blocks: Block#0 STREAMINFO Block#1 PICTURE Block#2 VORBIS_COMMENT Block#3 PADDING Trying various combinations of removing meta data, I found that deletion of the image fixes the issue: metaflac --remove --block-number=1 Test.flac That removes the block without the --dont-use-padding option - ie the image space is padded and the file is the same size before & after the command. I attach Test.flac before block removal. Is this likely a browser issue or something that can be handled in emby? cheers, ff Test.flac.gz embyserver.txt.gz

    Music playback stops after each track

    Whenever I select a track, it plays, but never advances to the next track. If I select play on an album or playlist, it plays the first track and stops. My files are all in FLAC if that's pertinent. Happens regardless of local wifi, remote wifi, or mobile network. Web client via mobile Safari doesn't have this issue, nor do any desktop browsers. iPhone 5S, iOS 9.3.3 App v1.2.1, but this has been happening for a few months now

    transcoding music

    Hi, I am new to Emby, The server is installed on win10 and works pretty well on the LAN. From outside I connect with the web ui. It works as well. My upload speed is 1mb. My media library is made of flac music. As the music stops frequently I would like the flac to be transcoded to mp3 (256kbs or 128kbs) when I am outside. Any parameter for that or config file I could modify? Thanks

    Gapless Flac

    Hi Everyone, Just a quick one, I have had a look in the forums but can't find what i'm looking for. Is anyone using gapless flac and how do you do it. At the moment I convert CDs into separate tracks, but I have quite a few that would be better as a whole disk. Has anyone had any success doing this? Cheers

    transcoding audio wav to flac fails

    Hi, My Emby linux server 3.5.3.0 fails to transcode audio wav files to flac. [NULL @ 0x1a8bf80] Unable to find a suitable output format for '/storage0/emby-tmp/transcoding-temp/8db4908250589ff5138da517228d752d' /storage0/emby-tmp/transcoding-temp/8db4908250589ff5138da517228d752d: Invalid argument When I change the transcode profile to mp3 it successfully transcodes to mp3. (the basics are working) My dlna speaker device supports flac therefor I like to preserve the audio quality as much as possible. If I look at the transcode log file I notice that in the ffmpeg command the extension (.flac) is missing in the output definition. I am no expert on this but it might be related to my issue. In the log file from the successful mp3 tanscoding the extension (.mp3) is present in the command. Please see attached log files. Regards Fire transcode to flac.txt transcode to mp3.txt
  9. When playing a multi-disc album and the 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) disc has a different image (in the file), the image of the first disc is still shown when playing. All files are tagged correctly and in the same folder so these show up as multidisc albums on the server. Can this be fixed, please?
  10. Hey Emby Sages, looking for some help figuring out why some flac files play via the web interface and some don't. The errors are presenting in Firefox 59.02. They do not occur via the Android App and when I download the offending file to the local storage I'm able to play it in the client's OS (Rhythmbox). docker logs -f [container name] doesn't yield anything past the success of the entrypoint script. Is there a way (possibly via attach?) that I can get a better look at what the decoding/encoding error might be? Thanks in advance Mike
  11. I have more than 2000 songs in mp3 and flac format and the emby apps I use (android for smartphone android TV and windows 10) doesn't show the albums, genres and tracks. is there something wrong with emby server? Is there any workaround for this issue? Has this issue been addressed by emby developers?

    FLAC support in Apple TV 4K

    First off, you all have done a great job on Emby and in particular the tvOS app. I’m trying to transition from plex to emby but my only concern is FLAC files. I have all of my music in FLAC format and upconverted to 5.1 audio. These play very well in plex, but there is no sound at all in emby on Apple TV 4. I’m picking up an ATV 4K soon and am wondering if I will be able to play these files in emby when Apple adds FLAC support to the 4K. Thanks.

  14. Hi, really happy with how the new Emby Theater worked flawlessly when I first installed it. It looks fantastic. I have a premium licence. Movies and all my music played fine, but yesterday I ran into problems playing my flac and mp3 files which are in separate folders. Just getting the spinning circle when I click on a song and nothing happens. I deleted my music library and re-installed it but its still not working. I've got Windows 7 64 bit. Do you have any idea why this might be? I've attached my emby theater log. theater-63591942346.txt

    Music title construction issue

    I have several albums .flac encoded. Two of the albums have the following symptoms: 1) The album name is prepended with another version of the album name. 2) Each track is prepended with another version of the track name. 3) The album has an associated .cue and .m3u file 4) The prepended album name is the same as the TITLE in the .cue file 5) The prepended track name is the same as the corresponding TRACK TITLE in the .cue file I removed the .cue and .m3u files but the displayed values remain. Can someone please explain this to me? Where are the displayed values being derived from? Is there something I can do to resolve this display issue? Here are the associated .cue and .m3u files: "You aren't permitted to upload this kind of file" Here are some screen shots:
  16. Hi, I opened an issue on GitHub but maybe I should have posted in the forum first. I'm using the latest version of Emby Server (3.0.5782.0) on CentOS 7.1503, but my problem is probably platform agnostic. Short description When Emby scans FLAC files for metadata and finds several **ARTISTS** tags in a single file, it concatenates the values of the **ARTISTS** tags into the **Artist** field of the track metadata with a semicolon delimiter. However, Emby treats the final string as a single artist, ignoring the semicolon delimiter. The same string would generate several artist records if edited manually. Long description I have a FLAC-only audio library configured in Emby Server. The files are tagged using MusicBrainz Picard. Recently, support was added for the ARTISTS tags (note the plural) in FLAC files. As a consequence, when a FLAC file contains several of those tags, the scanner concatenates all the values in the Artist field of the track metadata, and adds semicolons as delimiters. For instance, one of my files have the following metadata: $ metaflac --export-tags-to=- File.flac BARCODE=0035627460227 PRODUCER=Dave Stewart TITLE=There Must Be an Angel (Playing With My Heart) (feat.

Wonder, Stevie ARTISTS=Eurythmics ARTISTS=Stevie Wonder TRACKNUMBER=2 This file has two ARTISTS tags: $ metaflac --export-tags-to=- File.flac | grep ARTISTS= ARTISTS=Eurythmics ARTISTS=Stevie Wonder In Emby Server, those tags are converted to a single Artist value with both artists and a semicolon delimiter. Everything is fine so far, as this seems to be an expected behavior: However, if I make a search, the whole string is considered as a single artist instead of two (the single "Eurythmics" artist comes from the Album artist field): If I click the item, I can see the actual song: However, if I manually edit the track's metadata with the same values (removing the semicolon in the Artist field, saving, restoring the semicolon, saving again), Emby behaves as expected and generates two distinct artists. The track now appears under the main Eurythmics artist (note that Emby now automatically replaces the semicolon by a comma to show that the track has several artists): This is a very annoying issue as it cripples the whole music library. Does anyone else see the same thing ? Thanks! Marin.
  17. Hi, I've just recently run into a problem with MB Theater - I'm not able to play any of my audio files e.g. flac or mp3. I originally set up foobar to play these and it has been working fine for months. Now when I try and play a song I get the error message: "There was an error processing the request". I've tried re-installing MB Theater but I keep getting the same problem even when I configure MPC or VLC to play them. Pulling my hair out now. These files play fine in MB Classic through foobar. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Server version is Version 3.0.5366.22005 MB Theater version is 3.0.5370.26895 I've uploaded the log filetheater-63546502043.txt
  18. Hello, Could someone possibly confirm/deny whether gapless, bit perfect flac will ever be possible from Media Browser Theatre? I like the look of MB3 and where the theatre UI is headed, but this is a deal breaker for me. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell the answer is no, because... (1) Use of LAV filters for FLAC decoding precludes gapless? Or at least that's my experience using them for WMC (2) Use of DirectShow audio drivers (?) means (in Win 8 at least) the audio is subjected to Microsoft's limiter function (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/matthew_van_eerde/archive/2011/05/11/linearity-of-windows-volume-apis-iaudiometerinformation-and-full-scale-signals.aspx) What I am hoping is I am wrong with regards to (1) - which is impossible to confirm at the mo, because pressing playing on an audio track only plays one track :-) (2) - will there ever be the possibility of WASAPI exclusive mode (or indeed is that possible now?)?
  19. Now that Windows 10 supports FLAC format natively, I want to move my Music library from using lossy MP3 files to lossless FLAC files. I'm keeping the same folder structure for my albums, and gradually replacing all the MP3 tracks with their FLAC equivalents. The Folder structure is as recommended in the Tutorial: This has worked for multi-disc albums using MP3 - I get a single entry in the Music Library page, and in the album page itself, I get all the tracks listed by disc. However, when the tracks are in FLAC format, even though they are in the same folder structure as the MP3 tracks that they have replaced, all the tracks are concatenated, and no longer split out across the discs. Here's the two-disc album of Kate Bush's Aerial as an example: Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong? Thanks.

    MP3 vs FLAC

    Hello anybody I have quite a large MP3 collection (majority 320kbps) and have avoided FLAC, and converted it to mp3. My question is am I missing something? Is anyone out there a devout flac audiophile that can put me straight on the subject. And how do I use it with Emby?

    BubbleUPnP Profile and flac streaming

    Hi there, I'm fairly new to the emby media server and already encountered my first problem. I have a large music library, mostly flac files from CD-albums. Now I want to stream them to my Android devices, using BubbleUpnp as player without transcoding them. It seems that just a few random albums are streamed untouched and most of them get transcoded, regardless which settings i make in my BubbleUpnp profile. Does someone else encounter this problem? In the past I used fuppesUpnp for streaming, had no problems there. Thank you, Blade

    FLAC Support on iOS

    I understand that there is no native support for flac on iOS, but there are apps that do support it. I am using the iPad app and am wondering if flac support can/will be added as my entire music library is encoded in flac.

    Flac music files no longer play

    I've encountered yet another problem with the latest server release--now my Flac music files will not play on Roku Media Browser++. The files will play for about 10 seconds then jump to the next album track and do the same thing through the entire album. These are tracks that played perfectly in the past. Any suggestions? I've spent an hour trying to attatch a copy of my server log and no matter what I do, mo matter how much I cut out of it I always get an error message that the file is too large. Do you guys only wants 10 lines of server data or something?
  25. I have noticed a problem with multiple tags for FLAC files; the correct Vorbis Comment standard does not seem to work with MB3. As an example for the album Peter White Christmas three separate Album Artist tags should be recognised (separated by nulls) as follows: Album Artist=Peter White Album Artist=Mindi Abair Album Artist=Rick Braun Instead MB3 only recognises the last value (Rick Braun) ignoring the first two. However, the ID3V2 standard of recognising the following as a mulivalue tag for both MP3 and FLACs does work. Album Artist=Peter White/Mindi Abair/Rick Braun This is incorrect as most tagging and playback software (other than MB3) assumes the Vorbis Comment standard. This poses several practical problems: As far as I am aware, most tagging software transparently implement the ID3V2 standard for MP3s and the Vorbis Comment standard for FLACs. Thus for FLACs tagged with either MP3Tag, MediaMonkey4 and Foobar; MB3 simply did not recognise muliple value tags. It did, of course, for MP3s. It is, of course, possible to force an ID3V2 type muliple value tag in a FLAC but then the tagging workflow becomes an exception. Also the sorting functionality in the tagging software becomes inconsistent with what MB3 sees. Other software which does implement the Vorbis Comment standard could become crippled. For example, I also run Asset uPNP server to stream music to my hifi system; it currently correctly interprets all standard multivalue tags whether MP3 or FLAC. If I were to force multivalue tags in FLACs to conform to ID3V2 standards; Asset uPNP would stop recognising multivalue tags for FLACs. In tests all it sees is a single value "Peter White/Mindi Abair/Rick Braun". This is a fairly severe problem for a very large collection such as mine. At the moment I am simply accepting that for FLACs (the majority of my collection), contributing artists will not be fully indexed by MB3, The consequence of this is that I predominantly use Asset uPNP to listen to music rather than MB3 which is a shame as MB3 is a feast for the eyes (as well as the ears).
