  1. Hi Everyone, sorry for the long-winded post: I have approximately, 5 remote users that may be transcoding at any given time, plus 3 possible direct streams in my house, then mobile phone/tablet usage, maybe a couple at a time max (but rare, at least for now) I know there are a lot of posts where people are asking what kind of server to use, and if their server is good enough, my question(s) are different. First I will give an idea of my previous servers so you can see where I have been, so we can understand better, where I would like to go: 1.) I started with a Drobo FS (for Media)

    NIC stopped code(10) ??

    "strange things are afoot at the circle K, dude" Perhaps someone might have some insight into an issue I'm having with my 4 port NIC PCIe card. When I first installed it last year, it worked great. The other day I realized it wasn't being used to transmit data to my switch from my server. It was always getting pretty hot, so I figured it was burned out. I bought a new one (they are cheap). After installing it, it had the same window device manager code 10. Couldn't start it up. Thought it was a driver issue. Updated drivers, still won't start. Thought it
  3. Hi, I'm trying to get hardware transcoding working. From what I understand the Intel Celeron J4005 (Gemini Lake) CPU supports Intel Quick Sync so it should be capable of it, but from my transcode logs (attached) it appears to be only using software transcoding which is maxing the CPU during playback. Under my Transcode Advanced settings I can only see options to use VAAPI. I've looked at the Emby linux documentation for hardware acceleration but I'm unsure how to install the Intel Media SDK for QNAP ( Is installing the Intel Media SDK what I should be looking at? If so,

    Server Hardware Setup Recommendations

    Currently running my Emby Server on server with 2 Xeon e5 2660, 128GB ram, no gpu (currently). I have the Emby server running on a dedicated VM with 16 cores, 32GB RAM and a dedicated 500GB SSD. So far it works great but I am looking to maybe go something more power efficient or potentially better utilization of hardware? (server runs on Windows Server 2008 R2) I have a HDHomerun tuner along with my media storage and average about 2-5 HD streams. I did see some stuff about GPU rendering which will offload to the CPU when it needs to. Was wondering if anyone has experience or can help m

    Hi Chaps I'm thinking to get this to get rid of my 10+ year old synology nas and nuc to run freenas on it podomenatly to run emby and some other small apps like pi-hole etc https://www.ebuyer.com/863695-hpe-proliant-gen10-amd-opteron-quad-core-4-core-1-80-ghz-8-gb-p07203-421 any this any good.. shouldn't be doing more than 2 streams at the same time and mostly will be direct streaming. what are your opinion on this. I already have quite a lont of 2tb hard drives which are still in fairy decent condition

    Will adding a GPU benefit me?

    Currently running Emby on a virtual machine (ESXi) with the following specs: 8 CPUs from the 2 Xeon E5520 @ 2.27GHz in the host 8GB of RAM a 40GB disk on SSD for the OS and app Media content through a SMB-share (over Gbit network, mostly 100MB/s+ read/write speeds) Debian Buster Emby Premiere subscription Most content gets streamed fine. However, when something needs to be transcoded, it gets tricky. Especially high-quality stuff like 4K is simply not possible to watch through Emby. Also, subtitle burn-in hardly ever works. So my question would be: - Will adding a GPU benefit my setup
  7. Hey Guys, I just bought emby lifetime and am building a new budget machine for it. I'm building it under the assumption that my GPU is the piece that needs to be the most powerful as it will handle my video en/decodes and the proc/mobo/mem need to be sufficient enough to run windows and emby. Specs: ASRock B450 Gaming-ITX-ac AMD Ryzen 3 2200G Quad Core Radeon RX570 12GB DDR4-2666 (4GB) + 8GB 120GB M.2 boot drive (same performance different size) 1TB,3TB, 3TB 7200 RPM Media Drives Media Background: While a significant portion of my media is 480p encoded with H264 and AAC audio fut

    Am I better off buying a $250 NZD pc with an i7 3770 with 16 GB of ddr3 1600mhz ram and add a spare Rx 570 I have to help for transcoding or should I get a pentium g5400 build with 8gb of ddr4 ram, which one will perform better, I can put the Rx 570 in either build since I have it lying around spare but want to know which would be better since the pentium also has better quicksync, both are a similar price, I want the build with the most possible h265 1080p to h264 1080p transcodes possible as I share with alot of my friends.
  9. Ive got three GPUs in my server; an intel hd 3000, ati radeon 5570, and a gtx 680. The hd3000 doesnt show up in emby, so I'm not sure if it actually does anything which is no problem, but I'm curious to see which devices are doing what in real time. Is there a way to tell which device is transcoding (and if possible which device is doing the decoding / which is doing the encoding?) A command line option would suffice, but i have half a mind to put this as a feature request for "stats for nerds" if its possible Also, there is the possibility that the CPU is doing the transcoding, w
  10. Hi all, long time Emby user but first time poster. I love what you have built - thank you. I'm trying to wrap my head around a suitable Emby Server that I can use with the Emby client on my Shield TV. My current configurationis a Shield TV 16GB as both my client and my server with ethernet connection to a Synology DS216SE for file storage. This works ok most of the time but I feel it really really struggles to do both jobs well at the same time. (I get video image distortion issues on all playback. With 4K DD Atmos videos it just chews up the 7GB free internal drive space with temp tr

    Dell PowerEdge for Emby Server?

    So, I have a Norco case with a cheapy mobo and processor. I've got 16 drives in it, so I'm making good use of the 24 bays. I ran across a Dell PowerEdge R710 server with 2x Xeon 5660 CPUs and 64GB of Ram for a reasonable price. I don't even care about the 6x 2TB drives. My question is two fold. 1) Would the Dell PowerEdge be a good Emby server? 2) Is there a way to connect the drives in my Norco to the PowerEdge so the Norco is essentially just a big box of drives? I'd rather not connect via Ethernet as I believe it would lose a lot of efficiency trying to stream/re-encode from a

    New server - Any weak points ?

    Greetings all you emby users out there! I've been selected to set up a emby server for our gaming community where we are gonna put our own made movies - and movies in general onto the server. Im guessing that the load of the server will be streaming up to 10 people at a time when we sit in discord and watch the same movie while talking about it with files around the 4-8gb range. For this i have found a used computer that im very close to buying and it has the following specs: Specs: Case: Fractal Design R6 MOBO: MSI X470 Gaming Pro CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700x 3.7GHz Cooler: Noctua NH-U14S RAM: K

  15. I've got a FreeNAS 11.2 setup with a Skylake Xeon, which has hardware support for Quick Sync. But, I've never managed to get it working with Emby. It's got enough raw speed for software transcoding, until I've started loading in more 4k content, and it just barely isn't able to keep up now. So, I've been trying to find out if there's a way to get Quick Sync or something running to take some of the load off. Info on this for FreeBSD is scant to come by.

    Choosing NVENC encode GPU

    I'm currently looking into making a 2 in 1 gaming + NAS system to power my downstairs TV, I plan to use an Nvidia GTX 690 in it for a while as the card has been sitting in my attic for about a year ever since I upgraded, but will at one point get a higher end GPU like a 1070, maybe Ti, or Vega 56 (unless the 11 series drops soon enough) for gaming as the 690s 2gb per GPU frame buffer is a choking point for almost any modern game. Then I could have the 690 in there as an encode/Physx card. If I go for the Vega 56 and select NVENC encoding I assume I won't have issues as Emby should just use the

    Server Recommendation

    Hey Guys, I am new here. I intend to run emby server for a shop. I have 8 iPads running, 1 smart tv and another client running on the server. The 8 iPads will be running either videos or streaming music. By default the iPads will be running video ads repeatedly. The Smart TV will be running Ads continuously and the client on the server will only be streaming music continuously. What sort of server do I need? Do I still need a GPU. As for content, it doesn't change often, I know there is an offline mode but it is still beta. Do I need a good router for the WIFI as well. Thanks in ad
  19. I guys . I'm totally new to emby so i hope my question won't be too stupid for you Status : HP n 54l with xpenology and plex media server. I want to switch from plex to emby because there is nos significant improvement on hardware transcoding since a year and i need a plex pass to use it. Purpose : Adding a Nvidia gt1030 for Hardware transcoding on the fly 4K HEVC from it to read it from a distant place. Is there any chance it works ? Like i dont whant to waste my money I decided to try emby on my gaming computer (gtx980 + 6600k + win 10) to see how mature was hardware transcoding o

    trouble with intel hwacc vaapi

    Dear Community. I am quiet new to emby. Until now i like it very much, it is clean and simple. On my archlinux box i am playing around with it. During that time i tried the hw acceleration of my i7-3770, which supports h264 accel through vaapi within ffmpeg. Running vaapi as root just works fine. Emby fails.

  21. Hi All, Looking for some advice please. With the exception of the old standard MS Media Center remote control (I have a whole box of these), can anyone make some recommendations for a simple user friendly remote control? This is to be used on an Intel NUC system for navigation in EMBY Theater for Windows and is for a non IT savvy family with kids. I'm assuming that directional arrows, back button, and enter are the only command requirements for using EMBY Theater, so something as streamlined as an Apple TV remote is what I'm looking for. Thanks in advance to anyone able to advise
