  1. Hi, I am having a very very basic issue with streaming to the IOS app. I installed Emby server on my Mac, structured my movies, can see and watch the movies on my Mac. After activating/paying for the IOS app on my iPad, I can access and see my library hosted on my Mac, it’s all populated etc. When I want to watch a movie, I keep getting this ‘Playback error’. I went through all the settings, etc, KB and other threads, but can’t figure it out. I re-installed everything but nothing works. Please help. embyserver.txt

    Today's idiotic question

    Ok... so things are going well setting everything up. Today I subscribed for life and then I installed the app on my phone (iPhone 12). I entered my emby connect name/password. Shouldn't this then connect me to my nvidia shield server? Instead I get a screen asking me to choose: local server, add server, sign in w emby connect, downloads. I JUST signed in with emby connect. (I'm trying to set this up because tomorrow I go to the hospital for stone surgery. Be nice to watch movies on my phone.) As always... sorry to be a dolt!

    IOS app unable to connect to remote server

    Hi, In the past few days IOS users are unable to connect to my server. When they add the host/port and press connect they immediately get the message "Connection Failure, we are unable to connect to ..." My server is behind a reverse proxy and has a letsencrypt cert. Any (mobile)browser (including safari on IOS) or Android app can connect without problems. Emby server version: (Running in a iocage freenas jail) Iphone 8: IOS 11.3 Emby App 1.51 Iphone 6S: IOS 11.4 Emby App 1.51 I checked the emby server logs but nothing gets added to the log when an IOS client tri
  4. I have been using the finamp app for jellyfin and I think emby needs to create its own or even clone this as jellyfin comes from emby's code so should not be too hard I believe. The reason I am writing this is because emby needs a separate music app which me and others have been requesting for a long time and even though finamp is not complete it has been great for daily use compared to the full emby and jellyfin apps. Thanks
  5. First and foremost EMBY is a great product... I love it. I'm using my iPad as a remote to control EMBY on my fireTV to play music. This saves me having to turn on my projector and pulling down my screen. What I do is: Cast to "fireTV" Select - Remote control Select - music album and play but I can't Stop or Pause it or select another song in the album, am I missing something? Any help would be most appreciated

    audio transcoding settings

    Newbie here, running away from Plex. Am loving Emby. I'm trying to find information and settings for transcoding. The closest I have found is here but I do not see the illustrated setting (see below) in my iOS app. Am I correct in assuming that my lossless files will be lossless in the iOS app if both the server and iPhone are on the same local wireless network? If I am on a different wireless network will it be lossless or does the server see it as a generic remote location? Where, on the server and/or iOS app, can I set preferred bitrates? IOW, I would like to possibly have hi

Issue is around syncing to my iPad (2018 model with 12.1.1) using Emby for iOs version 1.7.1.

    iOS/Apple Car Play Issue

    Hi, I am a premier subscription holder. I apologise if this isn't the correct place for this question but I didn't see a place for questions/issues with Apple Car Play. I have a playlist with over 15 hours of music. I can listen to the playlist in the car and on my mobile device up to a certain number of songs (I don't know how many but it isn't more than 50.) Any song I try to choose past that number of songs forces the player to play the first song in the playlist. One reason I really wanted to go with Emby is that I thought my wife and I would be able to get our playlist on ther

    4K movie screen tearing on iPad

    If I'm not watching movies in our home theater room, I watch them on my iPad. I noticed last night when playing 4k movie on my iPad last night I got the green pixelated screen tearing. It did this on a couple of movies. I went to Plex on the same iPad and it did not do this at all. I went to my android phone as well to see if it would do it on there and it played back fine. So its definitely related to the iPad. I already know of the issue of some movies not starting at the beginning on an iOS device but rather 10 secs in. But now I'm wondering why the screen tearing is happening as

    Hide Downloads from Home screen

    Currently running Emby 1.9.2 (3) on iOS 13.3.1. I can't figure out how to hide my downloaded videos from the home screen. I'm able to sort the home screen, but there are no options for the downloaded movies. Is there a way to do this that I am missing or is this something that can be added?

    Movie starting 12-15 seconds in issue

    Not only are some movies starting 10 secs in instead of the very beginning using an iOS device (iPad in my case), now I'm getting something entirely weird. I start a movie and about 2 mins in, the screen flashes to the black screen saying Emby, flashes back the movie, flash to Emby screen, circle working icon...back and forth, then completely shuts down. Have no idea why this is happening. Any ideas? If you ask for log file from Emby on my iPad, you cannot even click on it.

    Weird Device Name naming

    Hey y’all, I have reason to believe there is a bug in the device names for the iOS app as shown below. It only applies to iOS device names and has the (%20) where the spaces should be. Emby Server: Beta Emby for iOS: 2.0.2 non TestFlight release
  13. Minor issue: setting the Home>Live TV>Default Screen has no effect. Works fine in Safari browser on iOS, but strangely not on iOS app. Menu choices are Suggestions/Guide/Channels, but no matter which is selected, what appears is Programs (not one of the choices). Would also think the choices would be Programs/Guide/Channels/Recordings/Schedule/Series like the actual corresponding tabs on that page, similar to the SelectDefaultTab on the Roku app. Only a minor annoyance really, but would be nice to have fixed in some later update. Thanks!

    IOS Interface thoughts

    Aloha! I would like give a couple of thoughts on the IOS App Design. So far I like it, does what it should do, but a couple of things might be worth rethinking. The Bottom Bar - It would be really neat to make this bar customizable. I need different sections on my iPad than i need on my phone so letting me choose what to put there would be a real treat. Downloads Tab - I would like to ask the question if the "Downloads" tab is needed at all because I think it could be integrated into the standard overview, for video and audio. You could show what is downloaded with a little col

    camera upload issues

    Greetings: As I'm running out of space on Google Photos, I decided to try out the Camera Upload feature in Emby. I enabled it on the server side, and set it up in the iOS app on my iPhone, but nothing is syncing. Thinking it was a permission issue on the server side, I set up a path and gave Emby R/W access to it--I tested this by starting a shell with the Emby user and creating files and subfolders from the command line. In looking at the server log, it seems that when the process starts, I get the following error: 2019-11-26 14:42:38.518 Info HttpServer: HTTP GET http://127.0
  18. Hey guys i am hoping someone could help with this as im completely stumped lol I recently discovered that my internet provider is giving me shocking results for internet quality as i am only getting around 30mbps download and for upload a shocking result of 2-4mbps. this is what made my transcoding so bad as i couldnt provide enough upload speed for my friends to watch the film they wanted. ( thank you cayars for helping me with finding the problem to this ) So i have thought of going with my phone provider (three) as they offer 4G broadband with out the mess involved in between. b

    Audio Playback Issues - OSX/IOS

    More often than not I can't start to listen to an album with a choosen track because Emby shows the track in the bottom bar but does not play it. I then have to press stop and start the album with the Play all button. This works most of the time and after that I can choose a track to my liking. I encountered this problem in browser mode and in IOS App. Is this issue known? I didn't find a similar thread. Further Emby seems to have problems with the remote function. When I choose my browser (Safari) as the playback medium in the IOS app and start a song neither of the two react at all or t
  20. I would love to see the option to have Emby show me more advanced Metadata for audio. I tag my files as meticolous as possible and it would be nice to have a display for things like Label, Barcode, ISRC, Catalogue Number, Original Release Date / Media Release Date etc. Basically the values MBP already shows me in it's tagger. But also the more technicals side of things like Sample Rate, Bit Rate, File Format, Mono/Stereo. Video already does that, so why not audio? Also a few more sorting options in Audio would be nice, like having the possibility to sort by Artist AND year, not just
  21. Hi everyone i have a issue with my Emby App well I tested 3 (Movies) two with Dolby Vision and 1 without Dolby Vision but with HDR10 So I tested the movies but the image are not good (Brightness/Darks colors) in HDR10 or Dolby Vision (Dolby Vision doesn't works) I tested without DV but with HDR10 and the result in bad quality of the movie is running, so the quality is very bad (Bright/dark) it's only shows me than the HDR10 is not working. Or at least compared with plex (ExoPlayer) the quality is less better in (Brightness/Dark) on Emby (LibMpv) So LibMpv < exoplayer in ter

    iOS and trailers

    Hi, I'm not able to play trailers on my iPAD. The waiting cursor just keep spinning, and no trailer starts. This happens both when I try to view a trailer of on of my movies in the library and when using the Trailer addon. Anyone else have this problem, and is there a fix? Regards, Roar
  23. I would like to have a feature than allow me to search on an library, only in that library and not in the others, or/and show's us in the general search bar on wish library the movies/tvshows/etc... is located (and turn it available on Android TV, Android, iOS, LG, Samsung, etc...) . "how it's search now" "Preview" after code in this e.g 1º %libraryname% is equal to French Library (Films - [FR] ) and in the 2º %libraryname% is equal to English Library (Movies - [EN] ) Kinds Regards
  24. Hi everyone, I would like to know if there was in the future update a way to filter the audio (Like e.g by english,french,spanish etc..) and the same for subtitles i can do that for container and etc.... but it doesn't show me for audio, subtitles. So i would to request it, as i can see on plex i can do that but not in emby. Not sure if this is related but don't forget to add this filter in all library type.
  25. I really appreciate the ability to cast to my Google Home and Chromecast devices. However, it just shows "playing emby" on the screen instead of showing what is playing. It would be a nice refinement if Emby would show what is being played with title, description, and artwork. How it looks currently:
