@Dazog can you please describe what "doesn't work" means? thanks !

 

The video is playing at 4k in SDR eventhough the video has HDR metadata.

 

It's ignoring this:

 

Color range                 : Limited
Color primaries             : BT.2020
Transfer characteristics    : PQ
Matrix coefficients         : BT.2020 non-constant

Can we see the emby server log? you can learn how to locate that here:

I am also having this same issue when trying to play anything with audio 'TRUEHD 7.1' basically any content with Atmos. On the Xbox One X I have the green screen mentioned. On my Chromecast Ultra it plays fine video wise, but I can't get Dolby Atmos to work.

What do you mean can't get Atmos to work? It should be converting the audio as Chromecast does not support that.

Basically I can get 5.1 to play just fine, but switching to 7.1 TRUEHD, my receiver decodes this as stereo. Through my testing it seems like the issue is related to Emby as direct playing the file from a PC, I get my receiver to recognize Atmos just fine. I'm not 100% certain that Chromecast Ultra supports Atmos, but am pretty sure it does based on my research.

Chromecast doesn't support passing TrueHD to your receiver so you'll never see that happen. It will have to be transcoded by the server.

Ah got it. Do you know if the Xbox One X or S support this? I have the same issue when using these devices as well. As far as audio is concerned.
