No Playback on Any Device


Recommended Posts

I can not get Emby Server to playback on any device, here's my config - log file attached:


  1. Windows 7 Professional 
  2. Emby Server 3.0.5786
  3. ServerWMC
  4. Clients; Roku, Android Mobile, Local Chrome Browser, Remote Chrome Browser, Remote Microsoft Edge Browser, Theater

Roku Client Crashes, All Browsers and Android app continually spins as if it's trying to load the channel, Theater No Guide and Spins Clicking "Now Playing".


Server was reinstalled, and initially played on "Now Playing" from local server but quit after ServerWMC was installed and configured.

Hi, welcome. It looks like you have some issues with either the ServerWmc plugin or ServerWmc software to clear up:

Most likely this is due to the ServerWmc application not running, or the plugin or application not configured.


Can you test a regular video file? thanks.

Hi Bazinga,


After posting last night, I removed the ServerWMC plugin and was able to play channels, reinstalling it broke playback again.  Therefore you are on target, I'll contact ServerWMC to see what gives.

You understand that the ServerWmc plugin also requires the ServerWMC standalone software, right? I am guessing you probably didn't see that part.
