I have the same issues with DTS audio as xxJonoxx with emby server and ffmpeg set to version 0.0.0. Is there any progress for workaround in this direction?
In Video Station when I try to open a video files with DTS audio it says that the audio format is not supported. When I try to do the same thing with emby server the screen freezes in loading and nothing happens. Perhaps it will be a good idea to be implemented some kind of error message and back button, because I have manually to press browser back button and then refresh the server's content.
Thanks for getting in touch, the underlying challenge stems from what I briefly mention in this post https://emby.media/c...hines/?p=443715.
So to a large extent it is a best endeavours implementation to take advantage of the h/w transcoding that is available, as we're constrained by what's available as part of the DSM release.
I'm sure there are a few things we could do to make it a little cleaner, so I'll take a look at your logs and see if we can default back to the up to date version of FFmpeg in the cases where the Synology version lacks supports for the media.
i.e. you'll get h/w supported transcoding when possible, and seamlessly default back to s/w transcoding in all other cases.
As discussed, it's a quirk of this specific model and Synology's decision on what customisations to commit/not commit back to the FFmpeg project.
