Live TV - Transcoding Using M3U File

Hi and first of all thank you for the great EMBY server.

 

I have an M3U playlist with http links inside that i have imported in to EMBY's Live TV.

 

The links inside are access to media that is already transcoded to x264/aac but EMBY still insists on transcoding the media.

 

Is there an option anywhere that i can use to stop this from happening?

 

Any help on this would be great

 

Thanks

Not at the moment. Emby apps will direct play if there is enough media information for them to determine that it is possible, but right now the m3u feature does not pass any media info down to the client apps. It's an area of opportunity for improvement.

Hi, thanks for the reply, do you know who works on this part of EMBY and if they plan to improve on it?
