I've been having this issue for a while and I'm not really sure where to start on troubleshooting.
When I play x265 encoded videos (encoded in handbrake with no extra options, i set quality to 17) in Emby for WMC it takes 2-3 minutes before playback actually occurs. I'm looking for a way to make that instant like it does for other codecs (h264 etc).
When I watch windows resource monitor, my CPU is not taxed, maybe 15%. My RAM is not taxed, maybe 3GB of 8GB. The files are locally stored on a RAID 5 attached via esata.
I have an NVidia 750 w/2GB RAM GPU
An AMD FX 8320 CPU
8GB ddr3 1800 RAM
Running emby server, stable.
LAV filters 0.68
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. If you need logs or anything else, just ask (I haven't seen anything in them, but I don't know what I'm looking for).
For comparison, if I play these files via emby in Chrome, they play instantly.
The ONLY reason I still use Emby for WMC is the family factor and remote controls (pause, skip stop etc via my WMC remote)
EDIT: I attached a log from MediaBrowser-Classic, I was attempting to playback Zoolander2
