  1. On my Windows 10 system, the Emby Server service is interfering with VLC and MPC-HC video playback, resulting in video pixelations and audio dropouts. It concerns playback of Blu-ray, WMC recordings and Live TV (maybe also other formats, which I have not tried). I detect the interference by looking at Windows Task Manager while playing movies, and it happens every 3-4 minutes, when the Emby Server service is running / updating and going high on CPU usage (from 0% to 1-2%). If I close the Emby Server, the problem is gone. I am not quite sure when the problem has started, as
  2. Emby External Player Launcher (E2PL) Emby External Player Launcher is a simple and pretty basic .NET application that connects an external video player to an Emby server as a playback device. MPC-HC is currently supported, MPC-BE should work as well and more players may be coming in the future. E2PL lets you play videos from your Emby library straight to MPC-HC, provides remote control support for essential commands and will automatically sync viewing progress to your library. I wrote E2PL for my own personal use, I wanted to watch videos using MPC-HC on my Windows desktop while als
  3. Would like to be able to resume playback using external player such as MPC-HC with Emby Theater. This was possible with Emby on WMC,activated through the "web interface" in MPC-HC somehow. Just switched my HTPC to Win 10 and did not realize it was not a feature with ET. Thanks, CFC
  4. Hi there, I recently updated to emby premire in my new WIN10 configuration, until now I was using MPC-HC as an external player in the MB3 version. Now I can't configure MPC-HC as the external player. It seems to be so easy but I can't make i works: C:\Program Files\MPC-HC\mpc-hc64.exe in the player path area {path} in the command line arguments area There are no more options, but it doesn't work, always the same error when trying to reproduce any movie... Error launching process: Type error: Cannot read property 'toString' of undefined. Emby works fine with the intern
  5. Hi, no idea what changed but suddenly nothing will play using MPC-HC as an external player. I've removed it from the Emby for WMC Configurator, removed and reinstalled MPC-HC, Added it again in the configurator but to no avail. If I use the internal player everything plays fine. If I could turn subtitles on or off on the fly then I would leave the internal player set. Anyone any idea? It's probably something really simple I am missing! Oh, I've reinstalled Server and Emby WMC apps too. Kind regards, Cog.
  6. RIP, you were a pal for a long time! https://mpc-hc.org/2017/07/16/1.7.13-released-and-farewell/ I've been using the native player for about a year now, but MPC served me well in the early days. Sorry to see it go!
  7. I wonder if anyone can assist! I have 2 PC's with same setup: Windows Media Center with Emby Server & Mediabrowser Classic. I have installed MPC-HC on both with exactly the same settings which I have checked thoroughly about 7 times now before wasting anyone's time here. The issue is that when I start Media Center and go to play a file, MPC-HC is playing behind Mediabrowser Classic. I can exit Mediabrowser Classic and MPC-HC will still be playing but I lose functionality of forward or backwards. I would have to exit this too. I have attached screenshots of the PC which is the iss
  8. Hello, I hope it this is the right place to put this because my problem is about to the legacy version of Emby Theater. I want to use MPC-HC as an external player out of MBT but the file always starts from the beginning. At the dashboard it shows me which file is playing (until I close the player) but not the position of the play progress. As I understood, I have to activate the web interface by using the "listen to port" checkmark in MPC-HC. My command line arguments in the external player settings in MBT are: {PATH} /start {ms} /fullscreen /play /close any help would be greatly appreciat
  9. I have always used chrome in the past to access my media and played content via the browser. Just noticed today that I'm not getting surround sound. I spent a lot of time updating drivers, messing with settings etc. It works fine when watching movies from my cable provider. Finally narrowed it down to chrome and firefox. Using IE I can hear sound on my surround speakers. I have an AMD Radeon HD 5500 video card with HDMI out to my AVR, so it handles audio. Running Win 8.1. If I go into my windows sounds configuration it is set to 5.1 and the test sounds each speaker. Also if I pl
  10. Hi all, I'm using: Emby Server Version 3.0.5785.0 MB Theatre 3.0.5848.25554 I use TMT6 as an external player for BD and DVD playback. I use MPC-HC as an external player for all other media content. The "Continue watching" (resume) feature works fine for any content played back using MPC-HC but not for content played back via TMT6. My 'Resume' settings in Emby Server are as follows: Min resume %: 5 Max resume %: 95 Min resume duration: 300 I think these are the default settings. I've had this problems since I first installed MB (as was) and MBT a couple of years back. How ca
  11. Scenario: Using EMC (Media Browser Classic in WMC). Loading External Players. Issues: 1. When loading MPC-HC with MadVR from EMC it sometimes starts to play audio only but sometimes plays fine. I either need to right click a mouse (not very reasonable as this is supposed to be all controlled with a remote) to get the file to play or I need to try repeatedly by stopping the playback and starting over from one to three times to get video playback. 2. ISO mounting. I have the configurator set to load TMT5 set for playback for ISO only and I have Elaborate Bytes Virtual Clone Drive s
  12. Hi all, I'm continuing this from another thread that was veering a bit off-topic and I hope I'm in the right forum. Basically the problem is this: I need to get the MB-C interface working 100% without keyboard and mouse. I had it about 90% there but there was one huge problem: Subtitles. I have a number of foreign-language films that I prefer to watch in the native language with English subs. Windows Media Center really has no way to handle this, so it was suggested that I try MPC-HC. While MPC-HC is more feature rich, I'm having some extreme problems that are making it impossible to use.
  13. I have Emby for Kodi installed and the server configured with Cinema Mode enabled to play 2 trailers then my intro video. I use MPC-HC as an external player and configured in playcorefactory.xml as follows: <rules action="prepend"> <rule filetypes="mkv|mp4|m4v|mov|m2v|avi|divx|ts|mpeg|mpg|ogm|iso|wmv|flv" player="MPC-HC"> <rule name="streams" protocols="daap|m2ts|rtv|rtsp|rtmp|rtmpe|http|https|rtsp|mms|rtp|pvr" player="DVDPlayer"/> </rule> </rules> (Intro video is in .m2ts format) In previous versions of the add-on, it would play the 2 trailers and

    File not found

    Hi I replaced paths on Emby server: volume1/Media/Film/Movies by \\NAS1815\Media\Film\Movies Whenever I try to play a movie form Emby Theater with MPC-HC as an external player, MPC-HC opens but indicates it cannot find a file?? What am I missing? Should I do something extra besides replacing paths? Playing the same media directly for MPC-HC works well. The ET-log when launching a movie: 2015-08-08 23:27:14.4124 Info - App: C:\Program Files (x86)\MPC-HC\mpc-hc.exe "\\\NAS1815\Media\Film\Movies\3 10 to Yuma (2007)\3 10 to Yuma (2007).mkv" /play /close /fullscreen 2015-08-08 23

    External player no launching?

    I Istalled emby server on my synology NAS DS1815+. Library (>1500 HD movies, >1.200 HD episodes and >20.000 MP3's) took ages to build. All seems fine now. However, I use Emby for WMC with MPC-HC as external player. That worked fine with emby server installed on the same client. With emby server installed on my NAS MPC-HC is no longer launched. The internal mediacenter player is used with the emby custom layer. Playback is very choppy. I have the impression that media is transcoded instead of streamed to my client for decoding. How do I make sure that there is no transcoding d
  16. I've setup MPC-HC as an external player (to get audio bitstreaming) and everything is working perfectly except that about every 15 minutes MPC-HC stop/closes and returns me to the Emby WMC/Classic interface. I checked the screensaver settings on Emby WMC thinking that maybe this was causing it but it is set to kick in at 5 minutes. The PC itself has screensaver disabled. Not sure why I keep getting dumped out of MPC-HC. If anyone has anything thoughts that would be great. I'm not familiar with MPC-HC as this is my first time setting it up and using it. I pretty much kept vanilla settings
  17. Is it even possible to use an external player with Kodi + Emby addon? I tried various players and means, but can't get it to work. If YOU have managed to get Kobi and Emby to work with an external player (MPC-HC / MPC-BE / DS Player), could you let me know how? Thanks heaps for the help...
  18. 'Force close player on stop button' is not working with MPC-HC as external player. When I press the stop button, playback does into 'stop' and stays in that state. Yes, I'm aware it works with VLC, so please don't post a reply saying this. VLC is causing other issues so I am not using it. I'm using MPC-HC version 1.7.7 which is the current stable build.
  19. Have had a search for an answer to this but either I've missed it or am doing something wrong! I recall when adding MPC-HC as an external player through MBC configurator (on previous installs) that there was an option to have the settings for MPC-HC automagically configured for you by clicking a 'configure my player' link (or did it just pop up?). On the last two installs I've tried on two separate machines (WIndows 7 Home Premium 64bit and Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit) I can't see that option when adding MPC-HC (and no pop up has presented itself). Could there be something blocking it or has

    MB3 & MPC-HC Playlists

    Hi, how do I get MBC3 to recognise a MPC-HC playlist (*.mpcpl) as a valid file? Thanks in advance, Pete
  21. When I hit the play button nothing happens anymore after the last server update. Using MPC-HC as external player. When I remove the external player the play button works again but with the internal player. Do I need to configure something new? Edit: Internal player also does not play the content. Rolled back the Server "System.old" folder and all working fine again.
  22. im trying to get stable ISO playback. VLC was working, but has begun crashing -badly, so that i need to hard reset. so, i installed MPC... looks nice, only, i cannot navigate the DVD menus with keyboard or mouse... any ideas (i checked the MPC config, and im using the correct keys)

    MPC-HC Time display

    With the WMC player when pausing playback, the progress bar appears so you know how far you are through a video. I've been trying to setup MPC-HC with MadVR and I can't find a way to display a video's progress on screen using a remote (it can be done my moving a mouse pointer to the base of the screen, but a mouse isn't always handy in the TV room). Does anyone know how to do this or if it's even possible. It's kind of important as my wife watches a lot of Asian dramas with subs, and often the subs have typos, so she likes to record the time and then she gets me to fix the subs for
  25. Hi folks, I've noticed something odd, that has repeated a few times, but I'm not sure I can completely reproduce it. I've used MPC-HC (currently the latest release, 1.70 something...) quite a bit, and I've got it freshly installed on my new Win7x64 system. One of the things I like to do with it is go frame by frame through movie action sequences and the like and see neat stuff in each still that you can't see properly when the movie is playing. Anyway, I recently added MPC-HC as an official external player in MBC. I assigned it in the configurator and let it do some configurations
