Playback freezes every 10 minutes or so - using Emby


Recommended Posts

I have a weird problem.

Some days I can watch movies for 6-8 hours without a problem.

Other days, Emby on Samsung (Tizen) freezes playback after 10 minutes - and to fix it, I have to 'wake up the pc' by pressing a key on the keyboard/moving the mouse every time 10 or so minutes has passed! - love the exercise but after 8-10 runs I get tired¬†ūüėČ


The PC is not at sleep, not hibernating, screen saver is turned off etc. For some reason, Emby goes to sleep and 'wakes up' if the mouse moves / keyboard pressed.

Google yields no solutions.

  • Using Emby
  • Emby for Samsung 1.1.06 on a Samsung Smart TV (UA49RU7100KXXA).
  • Connection between TV and PC is a Wifi router - Netgear AC1750. Strong signal.¬†
  • Running Emby as a service via via¬†NSSM - the Non-Sucking Service Manager¬†(nssm 2.24-101-g897c7ad (2017-04-26)).

Thinking it could be related to certain file formats or the NSSM service perhaps, but then again that does not explain why it does happen all the time.

Last movie played has these characteristics and then it Emby froze. Nothing out of the ordinary (many other movies do the same)...

Any help / troubleshooting appreciated.

Apologies for the late reply.

The problem seem to be related to the scheduling of drive optimization via windows 10 "Optimize Drives". Once the scheduler is turned off, the movies does not seem to pause. I will do some more investigation and provide feedback when available.
