XB1 does not support DTS audio output for videos unfortunately.  This has been a FR on the XB1 forums since early 2014 with nearly 2000 votes and no update to this day.

 

I'm not sure how DeathSquirrel is seeing direct streaming.  Is this just in the log?  Anything I play with DTS audio shows that it is being transcoded. 

 

Dunno, that's just what it shows in the admin console for that session when I play something.  I tested it with the 7illusions app, which has the same playback engine, and I get the same claim in the server UI but that client clearly says it's transcoding the audio to AC3.

Yah it seems like Emby remembers the saved state of the file as I can see the position I stopped playing in the web client, but there is no resume button available.

 

Press PLAY and you get the option to start at the RESUME point or the START.

Navigation even with the controller isn't very good. Especially when transcoding, and it seems to transcode a lot.

 

There's no chapter selection even, like with other Emby apps (Android TV, etc.). All I can do really is play and skip forward 15 seconds at a time and it's very jerky. More noticeable at the moment because resume doesn't seem to be working so I'm always trying to move ahead to where I was, at least for content I have tried. 

 

Overall this isn't very friendly to use and is a big step back from other platform apps. Hoping it improves. The Plex Xbone client is better by a long shot at the moment. Or maybe I am missing an option somewhere that improves navigation?

It supports both controller and media remote input.

Maybe I don't understand how it works then. For example, with the controller how can I skip chapters? I'm assuming if I can figure that out I can get my Harmony 650 to do the same.

 

Also are there any plans for chapter viewing/skip like in other clients, such as Android TV? Where you can view the chapter images that the server extracts. I find that to be extremely handy. It would be even handier if it worked like the Plex & Roku client where skipping forward actually showed the thumbnails but I get it if that is too complicated for other clients. 

 

I notice there's a way to view chapter images even in the HTML client (though it isn't as user friendly/obvious as with the Android client) so is there some reason this client can't?

It just hasn't been added yet, but yes it's on the roadmap.

It appears that XB1 is gaining bitstreaming support in one of the next updates:  http://www.whathifi....y-atmos-support

 

woohoo!

Hi,

 

I don't know if i'm in the right thread but i got some issues with the Xbox One app.

 

When i use this movue Attached File  mediainfo movie.txt   5.49KB   3 downloads i can view it throught Web Navigator on my computer or with the Android APP.
 
But when i try to view it through the Emby Theater apps on Xbox one, the movie not loading.it's like the apps are freezing i can't do anything only coming back on Xbox One dashboard & kille the APP. I've test with the Edge navigator on Xbox one, and the movie loading and working, but sometimes stopping and i have to reload it.
 
Did you have any idea what could be the problem ? Or can i give you some logs or things like that ?
 
Thanks in advance

Sorry i was out, i will do some new test and give you all the logs this evening. I've seen that there was 3 updates since my post on the media theater so perhaps pb was resolved ;).
