ANSWERED Emby on PS4 not connecting to server

Recommended Posts

heula

I have added a pin to my account but when I'm redirected to the emby connect page I did not see my server there. When I added my server adress manually it said it could not connect.

I did forward port 8096 to the ps4 ip adress bu no connection.

Is there something else I need to do the get the connection working?

No problems connecting with my pc's.

well you don't want to forward port 8096 to your ps4 you want to forward it to your server machine.

Well I gave it another try today but still no connection with my server on my sons PS4.

 

I have forwarded port 8096 to my server machine but the PS4 just keep saying it can't connect to my server. My emby connect server is also still not seen and manually adding the ip adress of my server is not working.

 

What can I do more to get connected?

 

Thanks

If I got tv.emby.media on my PC and do the same as I did on the PS4 I get connected so why not on the PS4?

Also connecting the same way to my android device and ipad is no problem. Only ps4 has the connection problem so to me it looks like a setting on the ps4?

But what setting?

Try your external address in case there's some kind of issue with the local network.

Connecting with my external ip adress is not working either.

I searched the PS4 for settings that will solve this but no luck there. All network settings are like they should.

Playing movies with DLNA is no problem on the PS4

 

This is what I see and get in the end.

This says "Connection Error" 

At this moment it is not possible to make a connection with this server. Check if the server is running and try again.

Network test is succesfull.

yes, use the http version of tv.emby.media. https web apps cannot communicate with http server addresses.

I have the same problem and cannot conect to my server form my PS4. Tried http://tv.emby.media instead of https://tv.emby.media and still no luck to connect my PS4 to my Emby server. All other devices - shield, android, ipad, PC's.. - have no issues to connect.

After I went through the tv.emby.media page I was present with the server selection page.  Rather than select my server, I selected the manual option.  Switched that from https to http, added my local server IP, and viola, working Emby on my PS4.

I am having issues connecting as well.  Have tried both of those solutions and nothing.  It is also interesting to note that while it works on my computer, Plex also won't connect to my server on the PS4.

 

Thanks

Hi, have you checked the firewall on your server machine?

La navigation web est assez bugée, impossible de sélectionner la lecture du film avec la croix directionnel, obligé d'aller avec le joystick/souris dessus pour que ça fonctionne. l'habitude de faire rond pour revenir en arrière est à abandonner, là de nouveau il faut se rappeler qu'il s'agit d'un navigateur et que la touche L1 ou la flèche en haut à gauche sont les seul moyen de revenir en arrière. Sinon la latence du navigateur se ressent dans la navigation avec la croix directionnel, ce qui peux donner des petits coups d’énervement.

 

J'ai pas réussi à mettre la même apparence que les capture d'écran de @@Luke aussi

 

Test: PS4 Pro
