We have recently gained an XBOX, so naturally I have installed the Emby Theatre app on the XBOX for playback. with the hope of this replacing the aging Win7 Media Centre PC.
On attempting to play back a movie, TV recording or anything, all we get is a full screen image (backdrop) of what we are playing and nothing plays, very odd.
So I did some playing about, I had recently moved the Emby server to a Windows platform,
I can play a movie back successfully form the Windows 7 MCE with Emby Plugin installed.
I can play back using Emby Theatre on Windows 10 devices.
I cannot playback with Emby theatre on Android.
I cannot playback via a web browser (Edge and Chrome tested on Windows 10, Chrome on Android).
This has all worked previously.
So I'm thinking there is a server issue on the windows device running the Emby server, this was a temporary measure as I lost my Ubuntu Emby server when the Freenas upgrade went in.
I have installed the FreeBSD plugin for Freenas and after a bit of editing got it going (service would not start automatically).
I have reconfigured, Emby is accessing media stored on NAS via smb://freenas/path/to/media... I have also specified the alternative path \\freenas\path\to\media...
I can play as above but the issues remain with XBOX and Android.
I'm thinking name resolution? so paths now have IP addresses, but the results are still the same.
Looking at the ffmpeg log it does not appear to be passing the alternate UNC path correctly, but I'm not sure as it works on some devices?
Is this a server bug?
