  1. After updating EMBY Server to 3.0.8100, I keep losing the connection to WDTV Live after 20-30 seconds. WD initially 'sees' the server, connects successfully and displays the media folders. When I select a movie (or TV show), it plays for a short time (10 seconds or so) & then loses the connection. In fact, even if I just browse through the available movies without actually starting one - the server connection drops & I have to reconnect. I'm running Window 7 home premium (x64), Intel i7-3770K, 16Gb memory. I've tried 3 different firmware versions on the WDTV (and rebooting, powering it off, etc.) - all have the same issue. When I run EMBY Home Theatre on my laptop it works fine with no issues so that rules out a server installation or router problem. I've also checked the firewall logs and even disabled it completely to make sure that the WDTV unit was not being blocked in any way. There are no relevant Windows event logs during the test periods. In short, I've run out of ideas as to what is causing this problem & am hoping that one of you will be able to point me in the right direction. I've attached a serve log covering one of the tests (movie played for about 10-15 seconds before crapping out). I restarted the server before running the test. server-63612044763.txt Thanks - I appreciate any help or suggestions
  2. hello, first of all I'd like to apologize for my broken english. I'm having issues with my WDTV live. all my media files are stored in a Netgear Nas. No problems with the PC. No problems with the PS3. I see the emby server an able to play the files. Problems with the WDTV. I see the emby server, I'm able to listen to the music (mp3), I'm able to play TV Series (mp4 - h264 1000kbps - aac stereo 128kbps - level 4.1) but when I try to play the movies I have an error. Unable to play the file. file not supported. All my movies are mp4 files, h264 10000kbps - aac audio - 1920x1080). If I search the movie files using the shared folders (no emby server) I've no problem. What do you suggest to do?

    WDLXTV and Emby

    Dear forum! I'm planning to upgrade my WDTV Live with a custom firmware for extra features and possibilities. But before I do it, I wish to ask around if anyone tried to use it with Emby server at all? Will it cooperate with DLNA DirectPlay? Since even the official firmware is also act out with DirectPlay sometimes. Thanks in advance!

    DLNA Control Point [BubbleUPNP]

    I have recently installed Mediabrowser 3, transferring from Serviio and the whole package seems to come together quite well and I appreciate its functionality. I have been having a few problems adjusting Mediabrowser to my network and I was hoping to try and get some help: From the android mediabrowser app I am unable to play content to my Western Digital Boxes. From BubbleUPnP (android app) I am able to watch content however if I try to push that content to the western digital box it shows up on the screen but then the content never ends up playing. * I can browse from directly on the WD box and play content without an issue. I have done some reasonable searching however have not been able to find anything explicitly useful for my problems. One person did post a profile that he said worked for him (not sure to what capacity) but it does not allow me to push content from the BubbleUPnP app to my western digital box. I have attached my log. Thanks for any help that anyone can bestow. Log.txt

    WD TV Live transcoding fails

    Hi there, I'm having trouble streaming a handful of movies to my WD TV Live, and after much digging I suspect this to be a bug in Media Browser Server. Most of my files stream directly (without transcoding) and play without issue, but a few cause Media Browser to (incorrectly, AFAIK) fire up FFmpeg and then immediately terminate the process. The result is a screen like this on my WD TV Live: Contrary to what the above message says, my WD TV can indeed play the video file as-is without transcoding (see below). My entire library is MKV / H.264 encoded with HandBrake, ranging from High Profile @ Level 4.0 to 5.1. Most of the videos that fail to play are HP@L5.0 or L5.1, but a few are L4.0. According to the WD TV Live's User Manual, appendix page 211, the device supports a maximum of HP@L4.1 1920×1080p30 w/ a bit rate of HD:40. However, I routinely stream HP@L5.0 and HP@L5.1 videos over DLNA using Serviio and they play fine without issue. So the WD TV is certainly capable of directly playing the videos that are failing without any transcoding, but Media Browser appears to be attempting to transcode them anyway, and for some reason it immediately kills the FFmpeg process - even though FFmpeg doesn't throw any errors or abend. Curiously, if I copy the FFmpeg command that Media Browser tries to run and run it manually in command prompt, it works like a charm. Thus I suspect this is a Media Browser bug. Here's the relevant portion of the Media Browser Server log file (full version attached): 21:06:47.4049 Info - App: C:\Users\BobaFett\AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Server\ffmpeg\old\20140105\ffmpeg.exe -fflags genpts -i file:"M:\MB3\Shared\Disney\Brave (2012) [1080p].mkv" -map 0:0 -map 0:1 -map -0:s -vcodec libx264 -force_key_frames expr:if(isnan(prev_forced_t),gte(t,.1),gte(t,prev_forced_t+5)) -vf "scale=trunc(min(iw\,1920)/2)*2:trunc(min((iw/dar)\,1080)/2)*2" -preset ultrafast -crf 23 -r 23.97602 -vsync vfr -profile:v baseline -level 41 -map_metadata -1 -threads 2 -acodec aac -strict experimental -ac 2 -ab 128000 -af "adelay=1,aresample=async=1,volume=2" -y "C:\Users\BobaFett\AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Server\transcoding-temp\533d0985-6037-a22e-7474-7dd0d8ceeec7.ts" 21:06:48.0960 Debug - HttpServer: HTTP GET;jpg;512;512 21:06:48.1510 Debug - HttpServer: HTTP Response 200 to Response time: 54.003 ms Url:;jpg;512;512 21:06:48.8850 Error - App: Error streaming media The specified network name is no longer available System.Net.HttpListenerException at System.Net.HttpResponseStream.EndWrite(IAsyncResult asyncResult) at System.IO.Stream.<BeginEndWriteAsync>b__17(Stream stream, IAsyncResult asyncResult) at System.Threading.Tasks.TaskFactory`1.FromAsyncTrimPromise`1.Complete(TInstance thisRef, Func`3 endMethod, IAsyncResult asyncResult, Boolean requiresSynchronization) --- End of stack trace from previous location where exception was thrown --- at System.Runtime.CompilerServices.TaskAwaiter.ThrowForNonSuccess(Task task) at System.Runtime.CompilerServices.TaskAwaiter.HandleNonSuccessAndDebuggerNotification(Task task) at System.IO.Stream.<CopyToAsyncInternal>d__2.MoveNext() --- End of stack trace from previous location where exception was thrown --- at System.Runtime.CompilerServices.TaskAwaiter.ThrowForNonSuccess(Task task) at System.Runtime.CompilerServices.TaskAwaiter.HandleNonSuccessAndDebuggerNotification(Task task) at MediaBrowser.Api.Playback.Progressive.ProgressiveStreamWriter.<StreamFile>d__3.MoveNext() --- End of stack trace from previous location where exception was thrown --- at System.Runtime.CompilerServices.TaskAwaiter.ThrowForNonSuccess(Task task) at System.Runtime.CompilerServices.TaskAwaiter.HandleNonSuccessAndDebuggerNotification(Task task) at MediaBrowser.Api.Playback.Progressive.ProgressiveStreamWriter.<WriteToAsync>d__0.MoveNext() 21:06:48.9210 Debug - HttpServer: HTTP Response 500 to Response time: 1530.0875 ms Url:;test;445cc5e11de0ae3b2e93b9473ccb6bda;false;h264;aac;;;;128000;2;;1920;1080;0;41 21:06:49.9131 Info - App: Killing ffmpeg process for C:\Users\BobaFett\AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Server\transcoding-temp\533d0985-6037-a22e-7474-7dd0d8ceeec7.ts 21:06:50.0281 Info - App: FFMpeg exited with code -1 21:06:50.0361 Info - App: Deleting partial stream file(s) C:\Users\BobaFett\AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Server\transcoding-temp\533d0985-6037-a22e-7474-7dd0d8ceeec7.ts Note that in addition to transcoding the video to HP@L4.1, in all cases I observed Media Browser attempts transcode audio tracks to 2.0 ch AAC, which is unnecessary because the WD TV Live supports all Blu-ray audio codecs and channel layouts (e.g., Dolby TrueHD 7.1 ch, DTS-HD MA 5.1 ch). FWIW, I have no problem streaming (transcoding) the same files to my Roku 3 via the Media Browser channel. Here are my system specs: Media Browser Server version 3.0.5267.16902 Windows 7 64-bit SP1 WD TV Live Streaming Media Player (Gen 3) - WDBHG70000NBK-02 Attached are the full Media Browser Server log file, two ffmpeg transcode log files, and the MediaInfo dumps of the files that are failing. Please let me know if you require any additional information and I'll be happy to provide it. I have a little bit of experience writing Windows .NET apps in C# and using FFmpeg, so if there's anything I can do to help with this issue, just let me know.
