Hi my apple TV client have been updated and I'm finding some issues, most of them visual ones:

MY MEDIA:

CCBFED9B-AAD7-406D-A5A6-73E95C4C05FD_1_105_c.jpeg.072466b010ab48f967759bc995f7d6cc.jpeg

Rectangles have been changed by round squares ? Fine but:

- Why some of them has the text in white and others in black? (And no, this libraries has no new media aded recently or any other thing that can make them be in white text instead of black)

- Why the text is aligned to the left with no spacing or being centered ? (Looks Horrible)

- Why highlighted selection is a big rectangle ? Mades difficult to see it and looks terrible (Audiolibros)

LIVE TV:

New Squares are presenting some of the icons with no spacing at the end : Programación case, that looks terrible:

843C1DA4-97B8-4785-ACD4-D8C254406E54_1_105_c.jpeg.8fca2537367066df2111775d22cdae25.jpeg

Now Playing on Live TV in the browser uses the bigger image available to present all available shows:

image.png.c9777af25b9b8fc02af693011a26a723.png

In Apple TV does exactly the opposite, shrinking big images into small ones:

07CF542C-DBB0-4B64-A35B-BF0669487D70_1_105_c.jpeg.04b41da1563ee919aadcdd921897bdad.jpeg

 

GENRES (TV OR MOVIES):

I've customized pictures for GENRES and here's how those are seen in a browser:

image.thumb.png.9e4807bd7f861e1418454ecdc6ae0f13.png

As you can see the pictures fit perfectly the layout, in fact is a square that the interface make a round border. 

Original Picture uploaded to Emby is a square with no rounded corners:

image.png.8796f60fa251ae6dc9e45a48cd40a4eb.png

But this is now how it's shown in the apple TV interface, that looks terrible:

FD570C4B-5752-407D-BEFB-7D980F69B949_1_105_c.jpeg.deb07c35c85fe601d292a7753c156854.jpeg

In the Apple TV client, the corner rounding is done incorrectly.

COLLECTIONS:

Collections are perfectly shown on movies, if a movie is part of a collection the collection is displayed on the movie making easy to navigate to it:

9BF50B18-E3BA-4605-A737-408C619BFABD_1_105_c.jpeg.19da6e172259edb26cbd7b75c72cc3b0.jpeg
34E0D557-0BD7-4D49-84E0-E4DDAA7DA062_1_105_c.jpeg.f167cf4de435fe882be35b9078ed3db5.jpeg

In fact, Collections split the components in Movies and TV Shows:

DE5781E2-16A3-4009-957B-445D842F6730_1_105_c.jpeg.4043cfb689eb635109e43a515ed30ade.jpeg
23F30736-DE0B-4354-8170-216711EFA972_1_105_c.jpeg.7a63c662744c9a98339f79805fca303a.jpeg

But TV Shows does not show that are part of a Collection:

355C50C5-4217-40C9-B43B-B5A25A7A8115_1_105_c.jpeg.604a0f20716d6d52eb8f3d058c40345c.jpeg
ED96FA44-737B-46DE-AC0C-7030052D6AB6_1_105_c.jpeg.ee2b504e2f5042e1a7d84d6729165835.jpeg

And yes before you ask, the ASHOKA TV SHOW is included in the Star Wars Collection

USER CHANGE:

If a User is logged with EmbyConnect now it's impossible to change the user, you must logout and login with another user, in the past was possible to switch between users even one or more of them are using EmbyConnect accounts, making easy on an Apple TV to be used by multiple Emby users:

9094E72C-CAA5-4CD2-9A8C-8EF90FC112EB_1_105_c.jpeg.32aca4953e21dba4974e67e4caf83981.jpeg

CUSTOM IMAGES FOR OTHER SECTIONS (BOOKS, MUSIC VIDEOS, ETC)

Whatever section that does not has an idenfication criteria to download a picture from a match identification, is presenting a wrong picture in Apple TV Client, this is an example of Books Section, here is how the authors are shown in a browser, using custom pictures:

image.png.4cc02e94b95fd3cfe8147555c743f166.png

And here on the new apple tv client with most pictures appearing smaller than the space for it not fullfilling all the space available:

663B44E7-7535-492F-A58B-50B343F1A705_1_105_c.jpeg.eaf62713f4d66806d4644d33cb1937db.jpeg

MISSING LETTER IN THE SPANISH KEYBOARD FOR SEARCH:

The Search spanish keyboard presented on screen is missing the "Ç" character, that is used in catalan (Catalan has not a unique keyboard, uses the spanish one, in fact all spanish phisical keyboard have this letter):

3328D8A6-609D-414D-9527-C5154B3A0605_1_105_c.jpeg.902a38b9abd239628ee3be0067d6b016.jpeg

Spanish QWERTY Keyboard layout:

image.thumb.png.22d0932245f97bf237a2c5a2d369fde3.png

LATEST ADDED MEDIA SPANISH TRANSLATION:

In browser the Latest added have been changed to "Lo último en XXXX" where XXXX is the section (TV Shows, Movies, Music, Books, etc), making it non masculine or femenine:

image.png.8d8a3e88219e1c77fec73c93d3b1e40a.png

But this correction have not been applied to the Apple TV client that is still using "Ultimas"

image.png.38360b013e8bb4b326f3bae5510623ae.png

The word Ultimas is fememine and fits well on Movies -> Ultimas Peliculas, but does not fit on Concerts that is masculine in spanish making it as "Ultimas Conciertos" having and inconsistency between the genere of the category and the adjective.

Just tracking what I've resolved for the next update:

  • My Media - fixed
  • Live TV Button size/fit - fixed
  • Now Playing shape - ToDo
  • Genres corners - can't reproduce
  • Collections - ToDo - Need to add 'Included In' on TV Shows
  • User Change - ToDo
  • Custom Images - fixed
  • Missing letter in Spanish Keyboard - this is an AppleTV keyboard issue, we can't fix this
  • Latest Added Media Translations - fixed

For the 'Now Playing on Live TV' issue, can you please tell me for both the web app and ATV, how many button images (not the buttons themselves) are square and how many are portrait?

  # Square Images # Portrait Images
web app    
Apple TV

  # Square Images # Portrait Images

I have a big channel list but this is the counting:

  # Square Images # Portrait Images
web app 12 5
Apple TV 12 5

This is what is presented on home screen, I don't have so much channels.

Regarding Spanish Keyboard, it's solved, if I press the C letter appears a menu allowing Ç to be selected.

Thanks

Thanks, that's interesting.  Generally, the cards are sized to match the greatest number of common images - so this means square, but the web app must have a logic to override this.  for now I've forced them to be portrait but I need to look a bit deeper to understand why this is different to the web app.

Investigating a bit further, it is more likely that the ATV view is correct with square images and the web app should be displaying them square as well.  For now I've removed this change in ATV to force them to portrait and have left them as they are in your screen.

Let's review this issue after the next server update and see how they compare.

@SamESregarding collections, would it be possible to include music as well ?

I'm thinking that Soundracks can have sense to be included into collections for movies or TVShows and be presented in a separate row in the Apple TV Client.

BTS, looking forward, maybe will have sense on Server and web app to make the same thing than in Apple TV client, putting together the collection items by type.

Example

MOVIES
TVSHOWS
MUSIC
BOOKS
COMICS

In fact this will help for example to not use the same image type for music, to avoid this:

image.png.8ac27682caab404b73e11a9d65bcd82b.png

If we standarize the Apple TV format to server and other appliacations that splits collection elements by media type would be much easier to assign for music a different layout that does not make eyes bleed ;)

What do you think ?

This one's probably up to @Luke.  It really depends on whether we want the clients to include these items split into different rows and include music, etc.  I can see how it could be useful but I'm not sure how common it would be for people to have such mixed collections.  I don't think we would add it to ATV unless the plan was to go that way for all clients.

@Lukeinstalled new server version 4.8.4.0 and seen the collections grouping, 2 things:

1st, now if there's another media different than Movies and TVShows, the screen presents splited in 2 lines, and made the Movies and TVshows difficult to handle (too much scroll on big collections):

image.thumb.png.7920b62f26fbb78738c130da7f5e7313.png

Why TV Shows are not in a different row ? Would have more sense, or even better, not force to be all in one line just because there's another type of media in the collection.

2nd Other media added to collection, like books or comics are ignored and not presented in the collection.

Hi @Lukeapologies for the delay on answering but I've been out without access to my emby for apple tv.

No really, not all of them are solved.

Shows are still not showing that are part of a collection:

And you know what I think about the "My media (small) limited to 2 rows while my media (not small) can be more useful for users that does not notice that there are more things ...

@Luke@SamES

Additionally, the Native player is not working anymore in the latest version and the MPV has several issues with deep dark colours, here an example:

Apple TV:
image.png.cf93d34b4461aba939da79176bd688bf.png

IINA Mac Player:

image.thumb.png.09d77309b60862dbe2636170600fa5c5.png

EMBY Web Player (Google Chrome):

image.thumb.png.af794f96cf4f654e49bfde25fb8ffc02.png

In the Past was possible to correct this using the Native Player but Native player is not working anymore.

(In the Past):

Can the native player be back again ? Or even better make the MPV to process dark images correctly.

That if manually select "Native" player on client configuration nothing can be played, the app hangs on black screen when trying to play anything.
