Hi Team,


It seems each time I have set up EMBY on my Linux Mint MATE 17 AMD64, i can stream from any browser on a computer but then it fails when trying to play from an App (Rolu, android phone, Android tablet.) 



Linux Mint 17 (Ubuntu 14.04)

EMBY Version 3.0.5621.4


Roku 2: <- does not work

EMBY verision 2.07 - sided loaded from this link


Android phone: <- does not work

Note 2 

OS: CyanogenMod 12-20141220-UNOFFIXIAL-t0ltatt

App: Emby for Android



Windows 8.1

IE 11

Chrome: version 43.0.2357.81 m


Things i have tried:

Fresh install of my OS each time I reinstalled EMBY

Tried installed per Debian direction

Tried installing per Ubuntu 14.4 direction

Tried installing per docker

Tried installed with my user verse using the emby user

Stood up WIN7 VM, installed EMBY and confirmed both ROKU and Android phone can stream from it

tried to figure out how to dongrade MONO and was unsuccessfuly

tried disabling DLNA

You've got a really old version of ffmpeg

Reading option '-hls_base_url' ...Unrecognized option 'hls_base_url'.

Thanks for the quick reply. That fixed my issue.


I ran ffmpeg -version

that showed I was on ffmpeg version 1.2.6-7:1.2.6-1~trusty1
A quick google search showed Ubunte removed ffmpeg from there official repository. I was able to find a way to update  ffmpeg to version 2.6.3 and it fixed all my streaming apps.

Also had the same problem. Updating ffmpeg solved the playback issue. But I am not able too seek into the movie. Does anybody else have this issue?
