Hey, I know the title of this thread is a bit non-descript, but perhaps someone can help me figure this out. Also, didn't really know what else to title it. LOL! I have a number of MKV files that are encoded as HEVC, and when played on devices such as my smartphone, and a few TVs around the house, they all direct play from Emby correctly. I'd like to continue to direct play, as to not kill my CPU usage on my Synology NAS, and avoid transcoding all together. However, on Windows-based devices, specifically, I have discovered that it forces the transcoding process all around. I've tried this on multiple Windows PCs, not sure if Microsoft's problem or if there is something I can do on my end. I host a number of family members that utilize Windows OS to stream Emby, and I'd ideally like to continue that. Any tips on how to fix this? I am happy to provide server logs privately, just shoot me a DM. Here's a small snippet of Luke Cage S01E01 doing this. 8312639228eaa0892b6b7501b71fb181.mp4
First, let me say thank you so much this is an awesome application and I can't say enough good about all the work that has been done to keep everything working in the ever changing tech world. Server, clients, OSes, networking, etc... you guys rock for all that you do! So I apologize for complaining at all. I am having what I think is a unique problem. I have an iPhone 5 and two chromecast units, and other stuff, etc, etc... I can stream to the iPhone fine and I can view movies through apps on my iPad, on my main PC using windows 8, my laptop using windows 7, and etc. The Problem: When I attempt to use the iPhone to cast to either chromecast unit sound comes through fine but no video. However, if I jump back and forth through the first couple minutes the video sometimes kicks in. I'm not sure why jockeying it about does the trick. It isn't consistent, like forward twice and back or anything obvious but it happens with every movie (regardless of format DVD, AVI, AVCHD, Blu-Ray, etc) that I've tried at least the first time I play it. Sometimes it will remember the movie and play fine later when started cold again, sometimes it won't. Sometimes the video never displays but the sound always comes through. Most movies I have tried worked after a minute or two of messing with it. I don't have this problem casting netflix through the same phone to either unit only when casting from Media Browser app on iPhone... I have the same exact problem on my wifes iPhone 5S. I haven't tried to cast from the browser but I may try that tonight. I don't think anyone else has reported this problem but I could be wrong, if so I apologize. It's been a long day and I missed the thread if it's out there. I tend to get unique problems so I try to exhaust all of my resources before asking for help but I'm a little full on work load lately and could really use the hand if anyone knows what I'm doing wrong from this description. I know I should be attaching the log files but I am at work right now. Additionally, I haven't taken the time to review them when the problem has occurred. I'm usually trying to start a movie for my granddaughter to watch before she goes to bed and just am just too tired to take the time. I'm anticipating the same problem tonight and if it happens I'll try to capture the logs from during the event. I know there is homework I need to finish on this... I'm just hoping this might be something you already know about and possibly have an idea what it is I'm doing wrong.
