I am a bit confused about how Emby works with iOS and playing within the Emby app on an iPad.
From this page: https://github.com/M...r/Wiki/wiki/iOS
Emby for iPhone and iPad can handle just about any type of media thanks to Emby Server transcoding. If you would like to learn how to prepare your media for Direct Play, read below.
The first sentence, to me, implies that I can play any format of video on my iPad. But then we get to direct play, which states
Direct Play Media FormatsVideo — H.264/AVC (.MP4, .MOV, .M4V)
Can someone explain this to me? If only .mp4, .mov, and .m4v are supported for iPad, is Emby transcoding even useful for iOS? Am I missing some setting somewhere or something that would let me play other formats in the Emby app on my iPad?
I was recommended Emby from a friend and neither of us knew I'd have to reformat half my library just to play on the iPad.
