Have you tried upping the maximum video bitrate? That .mov file should direct stream.

There is also the community driven blue neon night roku app which will let you set maximum video bitrates for local, remote, and liveTV streams individually. It will also let you force directstream with fallback transcoding. Both apps (official and community) can exist on your roku homescreen side by side. Go to the full post

Hi,

 

I'm having a problem when playing back video on my Roku 3.  For the 1st 10-15 seconds the video will stop at least once (sometimes several times) and display the message "Loading, Please Wait" along with a loading status bar.

 

I'm new to Emby. I tried messing with some settings but nothing seemed to change this.  It almost seems like it is not buffering enough somewhere.  My network is 300Mbps N.  I haven't had this problem using other services but I don't think those services were transcoding to H.264....  I'm not sure though.

 

I am using a new Synology DS916.  Emby Version 3.0.8500.0-1.

Hi, I would go into your Roku system settings and make sure the Roku system software is up to date as there have been several video-related fixes from Roku recently.

 

Let us know if this helps. Thanks !

Ok.  Upping the bitrate fixed it.  It was confusing as I'm a Plex convert and they had an option for direct play.  I see what's going on now.  Thanks!  I love easy fixes.

The blue neon night app also has an option to "force directstream" and it has fallback too. This is the same as plex's "direct play w/fallback". You can find the way to accomplish this on an items detail screen when using the "more ..." button. This will allow you to change the play method instead of always using auto-detect.

 

Sorry for the confusion. Hopefully that is the only hurdle in your way. :)
