Do ps4 support DLNA?

If so, it should show up in emby under a list of devices to cast to.

Emby also creates a DLNA library on your network, so if ps4 can find other computers on your network, emby will show up as a media server.

You can then browse and playback media from your libraries :)

you don't need to do anything server-side. the ps4 dlna media player works well with emby

Not nessassarly , the ps3 DLNA implementation is only a media player but not a media renderer therefore you can not cast to it, but you can access your emby media from the ps3 menus, I don't have a ps4 so I'm not sure if the same applies

My PS4 sees the Emby Server however i am unable to play the media files I have. It works fine with playing thru DLNA on my TV though.

 

I'm thinking the DLNA profile for PS4 is broken or incomplete.

Yeah tried it.
For me its worthless so far
It seems emby and i can connect
However not one single cover.. So not appealing
Ried playing a 3d iso movie in 2d, ps4 says it cant play it
Tried an mkv, it plays but i get no audio..

Didnt try even further..

It had no problem with an mp4 I played. I played one mkv and it had random video stutter for .1 of a second but wasn't to bad and only happened a few times. It was an older mkv that I've never watched so i won't say its the app. I will play a newer MKV tonight and see what happens but so far its working for me.

I can't watch the full movie due to it being Christmas movie time :) but I just tried Suicide Squad mkv.

1st attempt black screen with audio in the background. No video ever came up. Couldn't back out. Closed the window and reloaded Emby.

2nd attempt. Played trailers and movie. I got 3 mins into move and 0 problems.

The thing I noticed was cinema mode. I go into playback settings and cinimea mode is not checked but it's doing it. When looking at settings, none of the check boxes are clickable in any of the settings so not sure if someone is enabled or not or if I'm changing anything.

They are clickable but you need to have the mouse cursor over them when you click.

I was using the stick to move the cursor around and it was over it and i couldn't click them. Even if I was wrong, cinema mode was not checked but it was still playing trailers

I can't get this to connect to my server - I believe it's because I'm using a letsencrypt certificate and the PS4 doesn't have the correct CA certificate installed for that to be trusted. Normally the PS4 browser would prompt you to continue past an untrusted certificate, but I believe because the connection is being made in the background using JavaScript that does not happen.

 

I've done some digging and it seems you can't import certificates into the PS4 certificate store; but to be fair it's not really a topic that shows up much in search results. I'm surprised that this has not been raised by other people as I would imagine most people would be using the default self signed certificate with Emby.

Yes that's possibly the reason.
