Hi all. I'd really appreciate a steer on where I'm going wrong with my Emby setup - it's becoming really frustrating!
I have Emby Server (3.1.266.0 beta) set up in Lubuntu 16.04. My machine specs are as follows:
HD 7950 3 GB
1 TB 7200rpm HDD for media
I have a powerline based home network using AV2 compliant adapters.
I've tried a couple of different playback approaches - DNLA via my Bravia TV, Emby for Kodi on my RPi 2 and an old Android TV box (Minix Neo X7) but none work reliably.
My media is really mixed in terms of formats and bitrates. I used to have an HTPC in the living room so had no problems with playback, but since moving to a server in another room I have had real trouble getting many things to play successfully. Higher quality files often stutter then fail and I have problems getting HEVC and other files to play at all at times.
I'm happy that my network speed is decent - so I guess the issue is transcoding? I have used the Bravia 2014 profile in the past, but this didn't really help. Can someone please tell me what I need to look for in the logs? There's no info on profiles in the wiki so I'm a bit lost as to what to change to force transcoding and what settings would be best to ensure reliable playback.
Attached are some recent logs - these will only show DNLA access via the TV I think
