Hi I have some video files detected as 1080i and not playing to Chromecast, it plays fine on Samsung TV native player via stream from emby. What could be happening? Any metadata I can give you to help identify and solve the wrong format detection? Thank you
Clinically_Sane posted a topic in Android TV / Fire TVHi I have Battlestar Gallactica in mkv. I've tried playing it through my ms8 android tv player and chrome on my laptop (dedicated graphics, i7, 16GB RAM) and the playing is very pixelated, stutters a lot and usually crashes/closes within seconds of playing. Restarting it usually helps and it will play but the experience is awful. Other shows/movies tend to not work at all. Generally x264 and x265 files give me hassles. I've attached the embyserver log. I got the ms8 android tv player to improve the playback of the movies/series as the server hosting the library isn't very strong. Am I completely wrong with this thought process? Would appreciate insight into this so that I can continue enjoying the system as everything I'm adding to the library these days is x264 and x265 and impossible to play. Playing other file formats work. embyserver.txt
Heya Does anyone know whether or not a straight conversion of x264 (AVC) to x265 (HEVC) reduces quality at all, or it will just have better efficiency in compression? I don't mean re-encoding, or does that actual process have to involve re-encoding? Also, what would be best for this, as it's my understanding software such as handbrake only re-encodes. I would like to shrink my collection as it makes sense to? or does it not? Pros and cons would also be much appreciated. Cheers, Mike
