I see this "The bitrate of the file exceeds the limit" on control panel.

Is this normal or I have to set something in the options ?

 

Thank

Hispa

May want to edit image of your remote users ip address.

Please post the ffmpeg log for that playback session.

 But suspect all client have playback quality set to Auto and for remote connections it can be conservative and use the default hard coded fallback bitrate which is 3Mbps and/or 1.5Mbps.

May need user to set to a specific value.

I have everyone set to highest value then I control/set users "Internet streaming bitrate limit (Mbps):".

As mentioned, it looks like Auto on client playback quality fell back to default value of 3Mbps.  But there are dozens of topics on Auto being to conservative.

&VideoBitrate=2616000&AudioBitrate=384000

&TranscodeReasons=ContainerBitrateExceedsLimit

Please i dont understand how to set the settings you write 

Thanks to you I have already made giant steps on the use of Emby Server but in this matter I know little...so please help me set the server up

Those are from the ffmpeg log in the first section showing the returned playbackprotocal for that session.  Is shows the 3Mbps limit in those two video and audio variables.

The user on the device would have to change playback quality, but personally have never used or seen this app but there would/should be a playback quality setting in the app settings.

Yes, I understood the version of Emby 1.088 that I had a friend of mine install with an old samsung TV

PLS some suggestions:

again same warning...and this time my friends use a FireTV 4MAX with last Emby installed. I enclosed settings and log.

So i think is better to set for all my user a: Bitrate limit for internet streaming (Mbps)

But which is this Birtrate limit ? I have Fiber 1000Mbps and i have 50 users... sometime i have 50% users connect in same time.

My files are movie 1080 and 4K

 

Thank for your suggestions

Hi there, it could be the quality setting in the app on your friend's device.

I noticed that MKV with subtitles embedded will cause this transcoding. I set each users subtitle preference to Smart, which seemed to prevent it reoccurring.

That would be User settings-subtitles.

But you as admin would select "Edit this user's profile, image and personal preferences." on each users.

I would not worry about that. The emby user subtitle preferences only affect whether subtitles are turned on when playing, and which subtitles are picked.

Sry and thank Luke...but if i read  well in the option: Bitrate limite per lo streaming via internet (Mbps)

"....An optional per-stream bitrate limit for all network devices. This is useful for preventing devices from requesting a higher bitrate than the Internet connection can handle. This can result in increased CPU load on the server to transcode in-flight video at a lower bit rate.
This will override the global default value set in the server's playback settings...."

if i understand well, if i set a limit Bitrate, i can avoid to ask to my user to change quality stream ...correct ?

But really i dont know which Bitrate limite is the best.

Majority of my movies are 1080p and also 4K. the dimension of movies vary from 5-10gib to 30-40gib

 

Thank again

You set the limits on the server to lower the quality based if that's what you need based on your network bandwidth.

But it sounds like you need to raise the quality to avoid transcoding, and that needs to be done directly in the client app. You could also restrict transcoding permissions from the user, but make sure to read the help text because that could lead to playback errors when transcoding is needed.

I will not do it following your advice, but if I wanted to try with the characteristics of my fiber line and my movies that I wrote to you above, which one could you recommend me to try as Limit Bitrate ?

 

Thank again mate

I guess start with all of them or just the video transcoding one.

I would like to start putting a bitrate that is the same for everyone ... what do you say?
