  1. I converted an iTunes m4v file to mp4 on my Mac and then loaded it to the emby server...however when I try to play the file, I get an error stating "No compatible streams are currently available." I'm very new to emby so I don't know the system very well but any help would be appreciated. embyserver.txt embyserver-63725319937.txt
  2. i love having a music videos library but i felt that updating the metadata using the metadata manager was tedious, because my mp4 files are already tagged and my folder structure contains all the info that i need in the NFO files, so i wrote this python script to do the tedious parts for me. this script will: * autofill your NFO files (if you follow the folder structure) * change the sort title so that your music videos are sorted in a pretty way * walk thru your music videos and query your a musicbrainzid for each artist (i forget why i did this, i think it was part of a l

    Conversion de video

    Bonjour, J'ai acheté Emby Premiere pour pouvoir utiliser la conversion de fichier, mes appareils ne permettant tout simplement pas la lecture de fichiers MP4. J’espérais que ça me permettrait de gagner du temps en m'enlevant cette charge de travail, j'avoue que je suis très déçu du résultat. Une fois la conversion terminée, tous mes fichiers sont en MKV sauf ceux qui étaient à l'origine en MP4. Résultat mes fichiers sont plus volumineux qu'à l'origine, ce qui me pose un problème de place, et j'ai toujours mes fichier MP4 illisibles sur mes appareils. Pourquoi Emby refuse-t'il

    Web Browser Viewing

    Hello, I have started ripping my collection. But as a test I wanted to see how the server will handle the playing of a movie. I ripped a standard blu ray to Container: .mp4 Bitrate: 8.6 Mbps Video Codec: H264 Audio Codec: AC3 @ 640 kbps Audio channels: 6 Sample Rate: 48000 Hz When I play the movie via my web browser the CPU jumps to 50% +/- I checked the logs and it appears to be transcoding the audio of the movie. This only happens when I watch the movie via a web browser. If I watch the movie via Roku or my phone app then the CPU hovers around 1% to 2% usage which is what is e

    Not playing my mp4, SocketException?

    Hello, I am new to Emby and trying to get some movies setup to run on at least my Roku3. I can't seem to get the movies to play on any client though. The movie appears to want to start but then stops. In the logs it shows a socketException but no other info. Here is that part of the log and I have attached the full log 2019-10-21 18:20:24.227 Info HttpServer: HTTP POST http://mediaman:8096/emby/Sessions/Playing.

  6. Greetings, A couple months back I started having a problem on all of my machines running EMBY Theater when attemping to play MP4 content. The problem is the MP4 content, no matter the application that created it frequently pauses or freezes making the content unwatchable. The same content plays back just fine on the same PC's using the Edge browser and also plays back just fine on other devices such as our iOS, Android, and Fire Cube devices. The EMBY Theater machines are all Windows 10 Pro with nothing else installed on them. Some are completely fresh installs, others have been run
  7. I've found an unusual issue. I typically name my H.264 files as .M4V. Using that extension, with a stock multi-track movie (2 chan HE-AAC as the first track and AC3 5.1 as the second), it will default to the stereo track, and only Direct Stream the 5.1 track. If I rename the file to a .MP4 extension, it does DirectPlay without issue and auto-selects the 5.1 track without issue. The info indicates it is doing Direct Stream with M4V due to the container. I've used M4V on many many servers, with this audio setup and none had an issue with the container/codec setup. I'm not sure if this is by
  8. Version: 3.0.5490.2 Hi Everyone, I'm a new user to MB3 and I'm having problems with subtitles. .mkv files seems to work just fine but I'm having issues watching an mp4 movie with .srt subtitles. The movie works well using VLC and I can view the movie by just dropping it into my browser (no subtitles though) Any thoughts? I'm using the latest version of the server and app (as of 2/16/15). I have uninstalled and re-installed MB3 yet this didn't solve the issue. I haven't changed the server settings at all except for turning down the transcoder to "auto". The movie looks fin

    WMC won't start mp4 movies

    Hello! After the last most recent auto-update of Emby for Media Center, I started having a problem with just the Mp4 movies, but not the TV episodes. I press the Play button on the menu and get a dark screen. When I move my mouse I see the control buttons on the bottom of the screen (Stop, Play, Record, etc) but no time length indicator. The Play button displays the || pause like the movie is playing. I press the square Stop button which takes me back to the movie info page and buttons, then I get the spinning wheel and the page goes dark and the time indicator appears and the movie st

    Cannot play AVI MP4 on cellphones

    Has anyone ran across the issue where your server works fine for broadcast to TVs, PCs, etc. but won't plan on cellphones. I have an LG V20 but can only play MKV files. I've looked for custom DLNA profiles thinking that might be the issue, but haven't been able to find any help on this. Is there a stash of custom DLNA profiles on the internet? I think it's a DLNA issue since all other media plays on other devices. And...I know that the LG V20 can play MP4 and AVI files natively, so it's not a codec issue on the cellphone. Emby is running on a DS916+ NAS with the latest update to DSM w

Today I found that video files containing embedded closed captions, such as DVB recordings or iTunes downloads, will show that subtitles are present but none of my clients are able to display them and the server is not able to transcode them to a usable format. This example is from the iTunes Store. In the local and remote webapps some corrupted text is shown: The Android client behaves like the webapps. The Kodi plugin and Samsung Orsay client both display nothing at all but detect the correct language. The Emby's log shows ffmpeg bombing out: Stream #0:0(eng): Subti

    AAC 5.1 issue

    Hello everybody, After updating to the latest iPhone version, I am receiving the below error (within and outside my network as well) when I try to play any mp4 movie that contains an 5.1 AAC audio. To give you an idea of my setup, I have converted all my movies to mp4 h264 and aac 5.1 so I can use the direct play feature with no problem. When I access my movies within the Samsung app on my TV, everything is working ok but from the iPhone it only allows me to playback aac 2.0 audio channel videos. Previously I was able of course to stream 5.1 in my iPhone without a problem. Natu

    Hi, We have been using Emby for a few months now. Our setup is Emby server on a Windows Server 2008 on the home network, and the Roku emby app. We also use Emby for Android on several smart phones and tablets. Initially we were very satisfies, but the quality of the software is going down after each release. Here are a ***few*** examples: 1. Initially we used to be able to stream MKV movies, but after a few updates to the server, some movies stopped streaming. 2. We used to have no problems with the mp4 format, but after the last server update some mp4 movies don't stream. 3. We add new

  20. Version 3.0.5557.0 Just noticed, MB3 is reading genre tag from mp4 tv episode a folder history (nf) is created in ibn\genre... presumably a better behaviour would not be to read genres from episodes...as 'genre' doesnt pertain to episodes in the mb3 world... the episode genre information is orphaned after the ibn\genre\history (nf) folder generation..never to be used/seen again....so its not getting in the way...still cleanliness is next to godliness..

    Xbox 360, DLNA, & the 64-bit MP4

    I only choose to beat this dead horse because the difficulty I'm having in this area stands in such stark contrast to the rapid and amazing development work going on everywhere else around this platform, from the server feature set and add-ons to the mobile apps. MediaBrowser is a stunning achievement and plays a central role in my house. In short, the Xbox 360 cannot "see" the MB3 DLNA server on the network when I access the "System Video Player" app. What it's really looking for, as far as I can tell, is a Windows Media Player Sharing or equivalent service, since Windows PCs and other th

    Movies Won't Play On iPads (with app)

    I really hope that someone can help. I've used MB3 since about January and had no issues until a month or two ago. I use MB3 primarily to watch my movies (mp4/m4v) on the iPads via the media browser app (latest update). Previously, I had no issues watching movies both within my network and externally. Then, all of the sudden, playback stopped working on most movies and I can't figure out the cause. I have an iPad 2 (iOS7) and an iPad Mini (iOS8) and both have same issues. I am able to see the library and select the movie, but the movies just won't load. Just get the spinning wheel and so

    Mp4 vs Mkv

    Is the Media Browser Roku app more likely to play a video file in Mp4 rather than Mkv? I ask because I am coming across an increasing number of video files that will not play on the Roku app--actually the audio plays fine but there's no picture. These same files play perfectly on Play On, VLC, Windows Media Player and the couple times I tried even on the web version of Media Browser. It seems like the files the Roku app doesn't like are usually in the Mkv format. On top of that I've noticed that if I have a file that plays fine on Roku Media Browser but where the subtitles won't play if I
