Javascript error when running external player


Recommended Posts


I'm getting the following message when attempting to use VLC Media Player as an external player:


Uncaught Exception:

TypeError: Cannot read property 'toString' of undefined


    at startProcess (C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Emby-Theater\system\electronapp\main.js:148:26)


    at Function.<anonymous> (C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Emby-Theater\system\electronapp\main.js:106:21)


I've stripped my external player settings down to this and still get the error:


Path: "C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe"

Command line arguments:



Looks like the 'process' object in main.js has a null 'pid'.  Any thoughts?  I am running Emby Theater on a 64 bit Windows 7 PC and I installed the MS Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable (x64) - 14.0.23026 before installing Emby Theater.
