  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. Bonjour à tous, Je viens à vous car j'ai pas mal de soucis de lecture vidéo avec l'application Emby sous AndroidTV. Ces problèmes concernent quasi exclusivement des gros mkv en 4k HDR, c'est à dire que la lecture commence normalement et après 2-3 minutes l'image saccade énormément (pas toujours au même moment), coupe et bien souvent revient mais sans HDR. Et quand je me rend sur mon serveur Emby (c'est un docker sous Unraid) je m’aperçois que le transcodage s'est activé tout seul. C'est d'autant plus étrange que quand je lis ces mêmes fichiers via Kodi ou VLC il n'y a aucuns soucis à sig
  3. Hi Trying out Emby. Coming from Kodi. I have a paid iptv subscription that is working in kodi and vlc but not in Emby. I have Premiere. Running Emby in docker on an unraid server. The channels are listed but no stream is displayed. "Playback Error No compatible streams are currently available. Please try again later or contact your system administrator for details. I have tried numerous of http headers. One thing that looks suspicous in log: "System.Exception: System.Exception: GetVideoEncoder: Unknown codec specified: ''" m3u file looks like this: http://foviptv.link:80
  4. I have some flac files that check out good but seem to either not play at all or freeze part way through and always at the same spot. This happens with Plex, too. But every one plays just fine under VLC so I'm guessing it has to do with libraries. This occurs when transferring across gigabit LAN so it's apparently not a buffering issue. Can Emby be forced to use VLC for playback? The post I found describes how to set it up for video under Emby Theater but does not say if it works on audio files, also. I'll give it a try but if anyone knows of extra steps that need to be taken for audio...
  5. After some struggling (and plenty of the help from the community, especially @@Luke and @@funwithmedia), I have managed to get VLC launching correctly as an external player. I thought I would share the steps I used to enable it for anyone else who may need some assistance in getting it working. 1. In Emby Theater, click on your user icon in the upper right hand corner of your screen 2. Click on Settings 3. Click on External Players 4. Click the Add button 5. For Media Type make sure that Video is selected 6. For Player Path enter the path to
  6. Within the last few months, I was able to play my movies through Emby Theater / Media Browser with VLC. Now, all movies play through the Emby Theater internal player. I have uninstalled/reinstalled VLC and Emby Theater to no avail. I'm running Win10 64-Bit and Emby 3.0.5859.23399 I NEED all movies to play through VLC external player.
  7. As part of preparation for a planned conversion to ET from WMC I have set up an external player entry for VLC to play commercial bluray discs in ET - my VLC install has appropriate 64-bit libaacs and libbdplus updates. Unfortunately I'm always getting a "HeaderPlaybackError" message returned by ET with direction to insert a disc, despite a bluray disc being present in the one-and-only optical drive in the client PC running ET. Emby Server is running on a different PC on the home network and I'm using a stub for the disc library entry. My metadata/artwork is not held with the media folders.
  8. I am trying to understand how to set VLC as the default video viewer from within Emby - instead of the currently defined Windows browser (either IE, Chrome or FireFox). There seems to be some ability in the older versions of Emby Server, but in this new version, it does not appear to be available. Is there a method to define the VLC Player as the default video player for streaming any Movie or TV Series from Emby Server? Is there a possible plugin available? In advance - thanks for any guidance or suggestions

    External Player Won't Load

    Hello Emby community, I'm really hoping someone out there can help shed some light on this for me. Try as I might I have not been able to get an external player, in my case VLC, working with Emby Theater on Windows. Back when Emby was known as Media Browser, I was able to get VLC working fine. I've found some good posts on the forums and spoke with some kind people but have still not had any luck. I've copied my settings to match exactly with the settings in this post... https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/43054-considering-emby/?p=402646 No luck, Emby Theater still
  10. all I'm not able to play a live stream in emby via the IPTV plugin. The HTTP url ends in :8080/ looks like it's trying to play a .aspf file. I just get a black screen... Works fine in VLC Used to work in Emby - not sure if its changed to .aspf recently. Also used to work in firefox. Any tips? would really like this working in Emby! Let me know if you need logs etc. Cheers

    Considering Emby...

    Hi there, I'm exploring switching to Emby from my old, custom built setup which consists of: an MS Access database for holding all my data, scraping IMDB, etc.; a SnapStream Firefly RF PC Remote; VLC (running in one-instance mode, headless, using the dummy interface, and the http interface ); and a custom web interface (that I can control via hotkeys via my remote) which sends commands to VLC. My multi-terabyte library of files consists primarily of fully ripped DVD VIDEO_TS folders, with full DVD menu support via VLC. And then I also have a some amount of mpeg files. VIDEO_TS rips consist
  12. This post (https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/35769-resume-is-not-working-with-mpc-hc-in-mbt/) got me thinking about VLC (my preferred player). I've already posted a Feature Request for a manual entry option (https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/43209-fr-option-for-external-players-to-prompt-for-stop-time/), which the good Emby folks hope to add in the future. But I have an idea for how we could partially automate this via a plugin, for users using VLC in particular. VLC has a HTTP Interface which can enable us to find out Duration (ie, total time of the currently playi
  13. Hi, I accidentally misposted this in the Android TV forum - apparently it is supposed to be in the android mobile forum. I am SO looking forward to having a functional Emby experience... (after many, many frustrations) and appreciate advice/assistance. I recently posted a string of problems related to an AsusStor NAS running server. Most were solved by dropping the hope of running Emby on this device. Now I have it running on Windows and have a great experience with android apps and web apps - except on ONE problematic android set top box! The errors are very repeatable - but I can
  14. Server: Version 3.0.5781.5 on Win10 Pro on i5 NUC w/16GB RAM Client: Version 1.1.29a on Amazon FireTV (Gen-1) Settings: VLC Playback Enabled with Buffer set to 3 sec Network: Server and Client both on Hardwired 100 Mbit/s I am noticing that when I start to play any video (mp4, mkv or avi) the first 2-4 seconds always start playing as a monochrome green color. This not a major thing but a bit of an unsightly distraction since it happens every time. Any suggestions on what to change to address this? Thanks, Tanamur
  15. Hi gott a question about the built in vlc. what's the differens to use it and disable it? Because if its enabled it cant play dvd in h265 (hevc) but it works for the most part in Blu-ray h265.

    Launching VLC in Windows

    Hi all, I have been using Media browser for a long time now, and just came across EMBY 2 days ago so I installed it. I am running FreeNAS with emby plugin for my media library, and have installed emby client for Media Center for my theater PC. It is running Win 7 up-to-date in terms of updates. Just like the old Media Browser, I access and configure emby via the separate application that comes the emby download. I add external player, set it up as GENERAL (I have the latest version of VLC) and then I find VLC in my Program Files (x86) directory. Path, I left as default {0} at first, t
  18. What can I say here... well its great the menus are clean and simple, in line with the fire TV sticks own so users are at home straight away Its fast and responsive and looks good on the screen But it is limited to 3GPP (.3gp) and MPEG-4 (.mp4) (video anyway) (source - https://developer.am...specifications) Any other video needs to be transcoded and when you want to watch 1080p video with 7.1 sound not even my server can do it just maxs out the CPU My server is a Fujitsu Primergy MX130 S2 2 CPU x 2.99 Ghz 32GB of RAM If you have android TV or the fire TV (not stick) then you can install VL
  19. I have installed Emby Theater for Windows on aa fresh W10 installation. I have set up external player, left all path settings as default, and set up[ path substitution on Emby in Freenas such that. External player is VLC at the default path of C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe The CIFS share is at /mnt/LDATA/movies gets a path substitution to \\MYSERVER\movies oln my FreeNAS Emby server Now when I play a movie I get "Error request could not be processed" which is meaningless. Where can I see what the problem is please?
  20. Hello all, I am yet another new member to the community - I read about MB3 for about 5 minutes and immediately became a lifetime member - I think it's a great tool and I can't wait to see where things go! In the interest of a brief background, here's my environment: - Windows 7 x64 running Windows Media Server (using Ceton cards on Verizon FIOS) - sending live and recorded TV to several XBox 360s around the house (works great) - large movie collection sitting on network-attached storage device (mapped as drive M: on server) - 99% of the movies are in .vob format (due to size of collec

    Can't start video in VLC

    Since now i was using media browser in opera browser but now I have some videos with internal subtitles and I can't get them working. I installed and configured LAV-filters and xy-vsfilters but it didn't work. I thought I try media browser theater but the video is stuttering extremely, you can't watch anything like this. VLC is working fine and also has no problem with the internal subtitles so I thought I could add VLC as an external player for mkv files but when I start a video VLC starts and gives me an error that it can't find the video in this location. That's because MB server is running

    VLC Remote mapping

    Hello everyone. First of all, special kudos to the MB team, this is outstanding work ! MBC has been adopted by the whole family and everyone loves it Now onto my question. I use MBC, on windows 7 64bits. I've configured MBC (through the MB configurator) to use an external player, VLC 2. Everything works fine, I can play, pause and stop movies with my MCE remote with no issue. However, I would like to know how to map other remote keys to functions in VLC, especially : * Toggle sound tracks * Toggle subtitile tracks * Other speed for fastforward (>>| is already configur
