No avi playback on Amazon FireStick 4K

Hi guys,

I have a number of Amazon FireStick's that used to play all (the ones I wanted to watch) avi files I have, but lately I can not get any playback. Just the spinning blue circle.

Emby Server 4.7.6.0

Version 2.0.79a Registered

The only way I have managed, so far, to work around the problem, is to, in the FireStick Emby app go; settings > playback > use external player for videos (check) and then select an avi file for playback. The avi file then plays through Kodi.

Playback on the web app works fine. Other file formats tried seem fine.

I have tried through the Android app (3.2.67) on the same Amazon FireStick with the same no playback, spinning blue circle.

Attached is a sample extract of a video file and a logfile from the server while trying to playback that file.

Any suggestions?

Edit, 16 minutes later, playback has started. Tail logfile attached.

Edit, another 14 minutes later, started the non-extracted version of the attached file. Playback started but no audio or video.

Hi, can you try downloading again and installing the latest version?

Sure Luke.

Uninstalled old, installed new Android app version 3,2,77 (https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby.Releases/raw/master/android/emby-android-google-armeabi-v7a-release.apk)

Same result, except this time I waited 45 minutes the screen turned black, it started playing but with no audio or video.
