Direct Play MPEG4 on Emby not possible for Fire TV Stick and Shield


Recommended Posts

@ebr@Luke @all 

Direct Play MPEG4 on Emby not possible for Fire TV Stick and Nvidia Shield.

This function is part of the basic equipment and already existed, when or will there be an update? Cross-loading of standard apps is not manageable because, firstly, there are too many clients and, secondly, not all users can technically implement this.

I've already had a few conversations with you about this, but somehow we can't get a clear statement.

Transcoding for a codec that also offers direct playback is also not the solution, as 70% of users certainly do not have a NAS with the function to transcode.

Thank you for a statement on how, when and if we will soon get this again with the fire tv stciks and the shield.

OK, great that she will be, very good statement! 

Can you already say approximately when? It would help a lot of users and I can also promise it to my users.

best regards

Pretty sure it will come back to the "DX50 codec/DivX 5".
