Is it possible to configure the range of outbound ports Emby server uses? This would be very helpful in configuring QoS in the router. I know inbound server connections are initiated by the client on ports 8096 and 8920, but I am pretty sure the outbound data is on a high-numbered port chosen by the client for firewall traversal reasons, similar to passive FTP. The difference being that most FTP clients allow you to choose a range of passive ports. Also, does Emby server set the DHCP tag to a particular value? This would be useful to know for the same reason of configuring QoS on the network. It is one thing if there is no internet traffic until Emby is called upon to transcode and stream media outside the local network. But the reality is many people have VoIP, FTP and other services competing for bandwidth. It would be nice to handle this gracefully.
Maximus Naxsus posted a topic in General/WindowsIdea: optimize upload traffic, give Emby server highest priority, preferably with build in QoS protocols. Some Google searching: http://www.biztechmagazine.com/article/2010/03/boost-network-performance-windows-7-qos Happy to read any idea's and experiences. Didn't try it myself yet.
There is a way for any C# program to set the QoS bits on their sockets using IOControlCode.SetQos. See what Serviio has done here in Java - http://forum.serviio...php?f=3&t=15959. I recommend MediaBrowser does something similar...
