Missing 1080p option for 4:3 video at 1080p

I have a video with the following mediainfo:

Title 1080p H264
Codec H264
Profile High
Level 50
Resolution 1448x1080
Aspect Ratio 181:135
Interlaced No
Framerate 29.97
Bitrate 45 mbps
Bit Depth 8 bit
Pixel Format yuv420p
Reference Frames 1

 

Emby correctly detects it as 1080p in the episode viewer.

But there are no 1080p quality options in the quality selector.

Hi, you might just have to scroll the options to see higher ones Have you tried that?

You cannot scroll any higher. This happens across both Emby Theater for Windows Desktop and Emby Web.

Even if I set the bitrate to 4k - 120Mbps in my user settings, Emby will use 720p - 10Mbps

Double check the output resolution via stats for nerds. That list to choose from is more or less just about the bitrate, the decision making for resolution does it's own thing. So if the bitrate is high enough, the server will not downscale.

45Mbps -> 10Mbps is a pretty large drop in quality here. I also can't force direct play using the quality settings, such as when Emby mis-calculates my internet speed, as it won't let me select a high enough bitrate since 720p is capped at 10Mbps.

Separately though, it would be nice to have a "Max/Direct" setting to force direct play unless the format is not supported.

Hi.  The apps already do that by default if you set the quality to the maximum.

This is evidence that it currently does not. The max setting is 720p - 10Mbps. Emby is transcoding it down, even when the video is supported by the app.

Hi.  That is only while actually playing that particular item.  If you go to your playback settings and select the maximum bitrate there, then bitrate will never be a reason for transcoding any item (less than that max).
