  1. I have a very specific scenario here. I have a stream file (.strm) that points to a .m3u8 stream. I am able to play this stream but it doesn't pick the highest quality. The .m3u8 file: #EXTM3U #EXT-X-VERSION:3 #EXT-X-STREAM-INF:BANDWIDTH=614000,AVERAGE-BANDWIDTH=564000,RESOLUTION=480x270,CODECS="avc1.77.30,mp4a.40.2" 270/prog_index.m3u8 #EXT-X-STREAM-INF:BANDWIDTH=1118000,AVERAGE-BANDWIDTH=1028000,RESOLUTION=640x360,CODECS="avc1.77.30,mp4a.40.2" 360/prog_index.m3u8 #EXT-X-STREAM-INF:BANDWIDTH=1998000,AVERAGE-BANDWIDTH=1828000,RESOLUTION=960x540,CODECS="avc1.77.30,mp4a.40.2" 540/prog_index.m

    Poor streaming quality from VLC

    Hello everyone, I have been using Emby for several months now and am having difficulty. I decided to migrate from MiniDLNA to Emby's native DLNA, and the quality is very poor. Do you have an idea of the configuration to adopt to solve this problem? I am attaching you the screenshots in comparison, between the Emby web player and Emby DLNA. Thks ^^ Bad Quality, with pixel Very qood quality
  3. Aloha Embians, back again with a proposal. I recently started using the download function more extensively on my iPhone and I noticed something. When I download a record it downloads (youuuu dont saaaay) and after this I can go into a settings mode per record and set a quality. How does this work? Does Emby redownload something if i turn up the quality after the download happened? And excuse this stupid question, but the shit I download sounds like mp3 to me, even if i changed the quality to Original afterwards which should be lossless. Is that because I downloaded on my phone?I
  4. Hey guys Recently moved to Emby from Plex. You guys did a really great job with that, I really love it and prefer to Plex which is not stable enough in my opinion... Though I'm missing one important feature that Plex has : Favorising direct play / direct stream while you can also select "auto" setting. This means that if Direct Play / Direct Stream is not possible for a user connected to the server (due to slow internet connection, or invalid format etc...) then the Player will automatically select the best quality available for this user. BUT it will always favorise Direct Play

    Manual Multi-version group script

    Hi, I would like to group my movies with different multi-version quality unfortunately functionality doesn't work with multidirectory library. I know manual method: multi-select content and next "group versions". The most convenient method for me is to use a script for this. I can write a script, but I need a description of the structure of the database, which unfortunately I can't see anywhere. Can somebody explain me relation of sql data in sqlite db for multiversion video? Maybe there is some documentation describing the sql structure?
  6. The maximum available quality is 480p. If set to Auto it also goes only to 480p. My available qualities Are higher qualities limited to premium users? Would it be possible to completely disable encoding and only play at original quality? Thank you!
  7. Good afternoon! Yesterday I tried to setup my very first media server, with Emby! I think i have setup everything right now but unfortunately the quality on my android mobile phone and tablet aren't good. I have set this on auto. Can somebody help me with this? Some info about the movie file: Container: mkv Bitrate: 2,7 Mbps Video codec H264 High Video bitrate: 2,7 Mbps Audio codec: AAC HE-AAC Audio bitrate: 320 Kbps Audio channels: 6 Audio Sample ratte: 48000 Hz This is the Emby streaming video quality: This is the local quality: I just checked
  8. On the Xiaomi Mi Box I noticed that high bitrate 1080p videos (untouched videos extracted from bluray) and 4K videos are getting transcoded because of that 21Mb/s limitation, after some testing I noticed that if I manually select the highest bitrate that appears on the quality menu, transcoding stops and the video starts to play directly, what bothers me is I have to do this every time I play those videos. This doesn't happen on Emby for Windows 10 app, it plays those videos without transcoding. Is this an intentional limitation set by the developers? is it something I can fix? Isn

    Very poor streaming quality

    I'm getting very bad streaming quality from Emby in scenes that feature a lot of movement and individual objects. I have the transcoding setting set to highest quality (except for CRF which is 1 instead of 0, else nothing plays). My server's CPU usage is <5%, so that's not throttling the transcoding. The quality only drops during fast scenes or scenes with a lot of detail, and the drop is significant enough to disrupt pretty much any movie or TV show. Movies with lots of on-screen details are nearly unwatchable. How can I correct this? Emby Streaming Screenshot: PLEX

    Kudos on remote streaming

    With my kids off to college and my wife and I often travelling, I decided to give remote access/streaming a try. The only glitch I encountered was that I needed to bypass cloudflare. Once I did that Emby 3.0.7200.0 connected and streamed (direct) flawlessly from a Foxconn R20-S4 Atom 330 dual-core with 2GB memory and SSD disk running Windows Homeserver 2011 (through a Linksys E2000 w/ddt-wrt v24-sp2 and Comcast 25mbs service) to my college kid's PC across the state. Her comment was "better than YouTube." She was streaming the Bablylon 5 series (MPEG-4 720x480, AC-3) which I have on a 1TB WD
  11. Recently I have had massive issues with emby, all my devices are having issues. Fire tv is the worst. Everything is playing back in extremely low quality, low bitrate and the resolution must be around 240p. Everything else just refuses. Chromecast plays 1 minute properly then gives up, emby theatre for windows just refuses and the html5 player in chrome is the only one that will work. Any ideas.

    HD Issue

    Hello All, I have been trying to watch HD on any device and continue to have the same issue with breaking up. I have attempted watching it from outside my network on wired computer and in my home on 3 different devices and all have the same issue (roku, laptop i5 6GB Ram, LG G3 mobile phone). The video will cut in and out and skip. From what I have read in the forums it seems that its a server issue with not enough CPU. Can someone check my logs and confirm that would be the issue? Is the only option is to watch Standard Def until I upgrade for a mega machine? Any options would b

    Adjust the bitrate?

    Before I recommend the Android app to my brother, I wanted to check whether it has a way to adjust the bitrate to ensure smooth streaming. I got him to install MB Theater on his pc, but my upload is only 4Mbps, and every movie stutters way too much on his end to watch it. MB Theater apparently does not have any way to adjust this, unlike the roku app, which does. I looked in the Google Play store but details on the MB app are scarce. Thanks.
