Yatse with Emby support

Recommended Posts

Yes you can use Yatse to cast and do not need the Emby app.

And yes you need to add Emby as a media center inside Yatse so it can talk to it and properly start transcoding when needed.

Hello @Tolriq,

Thanks for writing this app, looks like you have put quite a lot of work into it. I remember trying it a few years ago but can't remember why I didn't use it (I don't think it played things locally). I thought i'd give it another go and seems to play stuff fine this time around.

One suggestion I do have is around adding a host, I remember this tripped me up back then too. When finding the emby server automatically it fills in its local ip address and not the external url. The emby apps seems to do this as well but in the emby app I can just enter "https://emby.mydomain.com" and port "443". Yatse doesn't let me enter this so I have to accept the local IP address. Then go back into hosts and edit the IP address field, it accepts it but fails to connect. Then I found under advanced a checkbox for "use https".

I think this could be a bit more obvious, hopefully it makes sense!

Quick question; does the music cache use as much space available on the sdcard or does it have a limit set in the app?

Thanks again!

Just skip the auto detection and enter emby.mydomain.com and port 443 it will properly auto detect https and do everything correctly.

Once auto detected as non https it's normal that if you edit and decide to use https that you have to manually tell Yatse.

Offline media can take all your sdcard space if you want, Yatse will just warn you when you are soon out of storage space when it can.
