Hello, I've searched the forums but could not find any postings with a similar problem.
I've got an Emby server setup just fine (Docker container on Ubuntu). I read the wiki article on how to set up source directories for Movies and I noticed it stated that DVD and Blu-ray structures are supported:
Dvd and Blu-ray folder structures are also supported. To be recognized as a dvd structure, the folder must contain either a VIDEO_TS subfolder, or a VIDEO_TS.ifo file. To be recognized as a blu-ray structure, the folder must contain a BDMV subfolder.
No other info was given, so I just copied an entire DVD into my source library directory. From the server side, everything looks fine; Embry appears to detect the movie and displays all the metadata just fine. However, when I go to play the movie, from a Windows 10 machine using both Firefox and Edge, I do not see any video. The play timer counts up as if there's something playing but all I see is black. Also, there is no sound but only a high pitched popping noise that appears every few seconds for a little while until even that sound is gone.
I could think of only two possibilities as to what is causing this. The first is that there's some kind of copyright protection on the raw DVD files I copied from the DVD that require the physical DVD to be present for the video to run. If so, how do I get around this? Is there any kind of tool someone can recommend? I would think this would be common but the wiki makes no mention of it.
The other option is that I'm missing some codec. If so, can someone please tell me what codec is needed?
