    Emby Gaming Club

  4. Emby started suddenly tossing up the Emby Premiere sign-up screen when I try to to play anything via a web browser on my Xbox One. I'm running Emby Server on Windows 10, and viewing on an Xbox One, connecting to my local server using the built-in Edge browser. The logs before being locked out of playing say I was viewing on App: Emby Mobile One And after, it's App: Emby Mobile One I've done a hard reboot of the Xbox, and have restarted my server. I've looked at the server release notes between those two versions the closest thing I can see to this change is "Add web app splash screen to provide user feedback in case of long loading times" in v. Is this an intended change, or a mishap?
  5. We have a frustrating issue on the kids Xbox One S (the only device of its type we have). As per the topic title we have an issue whereby direct play content will randomly freeze visual & audio playback, generally within 30 seconds. The application remains responsive, yet pausing and resuming playback does not help. Forced transcoding appears to resolve, and this can be invoked following the initial freeze, but the solution isn't desirable long term. Unable see anything obvious in the server logs, in fact according to the dashboard playback continues despite playback being frozen on the Xbox. This issue occurs with most content, although we have managed to successfully watch one or two films without problem. Server Version: Emby for Windows Version: 1.1.307.70 I'm unable to recreate this issue on other household platforms, problematic content plays perfectly on all other devices via direct play (Fire TV, iOS (iPad/iPhone), Dell XPS 15). Admittedly the Xbox is not hardwired, but we have a rock solid wireless network (Unifi AP AC Pro) and the other devices mentioned above also access the Emby server via wifi. Any advice on this would be well received.
  6. Hi all, I have a few users reporting that once they access Emby they cannot select a movie. When selecting something, it will attempt to do something, but only the "scrolling" animation shows. I ran a debug. I can confirm the user in this debug is logged in. But I dont actually see where the their attempt to access a movie shows in the activities. I attempted to test offnet, VZN LTE, using my phone to pull movies. I personally never had a problem. Can someone review at their leisure convenience and let me know what the issue is? Please and thanks! DEBUG_03262020.txt
  7. At the moment in the xbox theatre app i can only move forward and backwards in 10 second increments. sometimes i want to play a movie from a certain point in time and scrolling takes forever! could be nice if we could configure the move intervals or even have a "jump to " a certain point in time as the foxtel app does. thank you!

    XBOX One Issues

    These problems are specific to the XBOX One #1 On movies home page the alphabet listing on the left edge does nothing. This use to work many months ago. I have approximately 1300 movies in the library. This works in the WEB app and in Emby Theater for Windows desktop #2 When playing FLAC music files the Emby App randomly shuts down while playing. This too only occurs on XBOX One. This also use to work? It goes from playing the music to the XBOX Home page. Emby is closed. This happens randomly, but eventually will happen I have attached a log file - Music playing began approximately 10:45 am and stopped about 12:01 pm Any thoughts? log.txt
  9. Replacing Media center on my HTPC with Win 10 and hopefully Emby. The HTPC is connected to my TV via an Xbox one with Kinect. The Xbox one has a Media Center set-top box profile so it can send commands by voice and general volume, play pause etc commands like a Media Center remote. I read that Emby should support media centre remotes but apart from the volume, arrow keys, enter and back buttons not much else seems to work, no play/pause stop etc in Emby Theatre. My HTPC is in a Silverstone case with built in IR. I installed the old iMon drivers and software and it seems to be reading the remote commands ok and changing the volume etc. I hope to be able to utilise the Xbox changing channel, pausing etc in Emby but cant get it working with even an old MC remote yet. Any ideas?
  10. The Emby app for Xbox requires a username a password every time I access it, regardless if I have the "remember me" box checked. Is there some way to stop this from happening? I apologize if this is in the wrong category.

    Random freezes and other issues

    Device: Xbox Ver: (Xbox Store latest) I have been experiencing freezes on this app for a long time but have dealt with it because an app reboot or two fixes it. Now, I have reinstalled the application to see if it fixed the freezes I had today. Upon reinstall, I cannot load any movie or TV show. It attempts to load and then hangs at the screen where it just shows the poster. Sometimes it repeats that it fails to load. The only way out of this is to quit completely. Another Xbox I have where it hasn't been reinstalled constantly experiences hanging at loading a show/movie or a complete application freeze. Are there known issues with the Xbox app or is it possible this is due to library size? (~5k movies and ~1200 shows) Edit: This happens whether it's searched for, found in the "All [category]" list, or played from Next Up/Continue section.

    Emby Xbox One to Replace Xbox and WMC

    I am attempting to replace XBOX 360 Extender and Media Center with XBOX One and Emby I have two HD Homeruns as tuners attached to XFINITY cable cards TV - Sony KDL-52XBR9 Among the problems: 1 - The Guide is clunky and requires to many clicks to start a live program 2 - Some stations Direct Stream 3 - Some stations transcode I can play all these stations directly to the TV via DLNA through the HD HOMERUNS with no problems (of course I can't record etc) - This bypasses Emby And all works great with the extender and WMC - too bad Microsoft dropped support I have been patient with Emby knowing that it is a work in progress, but although there have been great improvements - the live tv area is still not performing anywhere close to WMC A good first step would be for all cable tv to direct play - any thoughts on when I can expect this
  14. I have this app on both a PC and Xbox. The PC version works perfect but when I start any video file on the Xbox version there is no sound even though there is sound navigating through the app. I've tried movies that were encoded with different audio, changed every audio setting in the app I could find, delete the app and re-installed and also tried a different Emby server. At one time when I first installed Ember on the Xbox the audio was working fine but stopped after one of the updates. I don't use the Xbox that often so I couldn't say what update caused it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    TrueHD audio Xbox One X

    I am having trouble playing a 4K video with TrueHD or Atmos audio. While playing the video I can switch to Dolby Digital 5.1 and it plays fine when I switch the audio track to TrueHD the video still plays but no audio. I have my Xbox One X plugged into my Onkyo receiver directly into an HDMI 2.2 input. Anyone have any insight into this. Thanks.
  16. I have an XBox One and an XBox One X for playback (Windows 10 as the server) that have both started having the same problem within the past few weeks or so. Here's how we can reproduce the problem: Go to Television\Series\Choose a Series, Click "Shuffle". Playback then stops\freezes at the very end of the first episode usually right around when it says "Next Episode will start in 9 seconds" . It will sit there until someone backs out of the app or clicks "Start Now" . We have been using the shuffle for several years when it stopped working a few weeks ago . I think it is either due to an update or possibly something wrong with the algorithm used to determine how to shuffle because we use this feature so much. I couldn't figure out how to clear those counters without resetting all the metadata.
  17. Hi, I tried googling for an answer but i could not find one specific enough and this is also the kind of answer that might change over time. So i want a current answer before i go shopping. I want to make the move to Emby with a premiere subscription. I've tested it for six months++ with and without premiere and the list of reasons why i prefer Emby just keeps growing. But i have some close friends and family making use of my current plex server on xbox and ps4. As i understood it most of the apps require a premiere sub, Yet i can use the LG tv app without a subscription. So i have the following questions: - Do my friends need a premiere subscription to stream to xbox/ps4? When streaming from my server. - Same question for smart tv apps? - And lets assume i convinced them to replace their own plex servers with Emby but they are to cheap to pay for it. Can they use the apps for smart tvs and xbox/ps4? I'm not interested in roku sticks and such. But others might appreciate and answer for that as well. Bonus question: Recommended block size for Emby dataset? Ty for making a great product and for giving me much more control and customistation for my library then anyone else. This is especially great for someone who is multi linguistic.
  18. Hi, I would like the Latest TV logic to be improved to only show tv series which are continuing, not ended. To vote for this, please like this post.

    TV series watching function

    Hi, With the progression of Emby I am surprised there is still no function to set a TV series as currently being watched/followed. This is a much needed function. This would also tie in with the watched function, so only unwatched items from series currently being watched would appear in Next Up. To vote for this feature, please like/upvote this post.
  20. Just updated the server to latest Emby Theater is giving me a connection failure from Xbox One for both me and another client. All other app (that I know of) work both on the LAN and over the WAN (VZN LTE). Tested over android and Apple. Works fine. Will not work over Xbox. Connection Failure “We’re unable to connect....” Emby Theater Version I checked the server logs, never seeing the app reach the server.

  22. Hi, I've been using XBOX 360 as an extender and now i'm having pause/resume/skip issues. It seems that only transcoded files from server are unable to pause or skip. When I try it I receive an error and have to start from beginning. But when files are "Direct Playing" pause/skip.. works Do you have any solution to my problem? Reg, Arni Thor

    Xbox One Creators Update issues?

    ​The Creators Update went out to consoles today, as well as an update to the Emby Theater app on Xbox One and Emby Server 3.9.2 beta, and ever since I can't sustain playback within the app on the Xbox. Browsing works normally, and playback starts as expected, but will only last appx. 1 minute. No one attempted playback on the console (I believe) from when I updated Emby Server around 9:30 am until 1:56 pm (after both the console and Xbox app were updated), so I can't be sure that it's not a server issue (though I sincerely doubt it, since other clients - including Emby Theater UWP on a Windows PC - have been connecting/streaming all day without issue). The first title required transcoding, and when it failed I thought it might be a transcoding issue (log attached). The second title was direct play ready, and suffered the same playback failure. Any thoughts? Log - 3.29.17 1424.txt transcode log - 3.29.17 1424.txt
  24. Hello @@ebr, After reinstalling Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, and Emby... I was finally ready to install my plugins.

Logs are attached. server-63647331988.txt - CoverArt installed server-63647251200.txt - after uninstalling CoverArt
  25. Hello, I am getting a green screen when playing a 4K video on my Xbox One S but the audio is fine. I have tested the same video on my iPhone 6S, MacBook Pro and a Windows 10 PC the video plays fine on those devices. I have also used the DLNA feature on the Xbox to play the video and that also played fine. It seems to me that the Emby Theater Xbox App is having the problem playing the video. log.txt
