mp3s Not Playing

Recommended Posts

So, none of my mp3s seem to play on the PS4 web browser. Like, no theme songs and if I try to manually play a song, a loading wheel will popup for maybe a half second and then nothing happens.

Hi @@Redarmy, believe it or not, the ps4 browser does not support audio file playback. To accomplish this we're going to have to do some trickery where we disguise the audio as a video file and then use the video player to play it. We just haven't done that work yet. Thanks !

Thanks for the hasty reply Luke. I only started setting up Emby about a week ago and your responses throughout the forums has definitely helped me get fully setup.

Hello, i just tried to play my stored music but it will not play anything, all it does is sit there with the buffering circle going around and never plays.

 

It happens on all music codecs and bitrates.

Hi Luke, out of the box PS4 doesn't support MP3 but for a while you have been able to install Sony media player which, if you have  DNLA enabled in Emby, will play music files just fine.

 

 

 

To accomplish this we're going to have to do some trickery where we disguise the audio as a video file and then use the video player to play it

 

So is this really the way the Devs are going to have to get music file playback working in any Emby app or browser for the PS4. Also are the Devs able to offer some sort of time scale for this to be implemented?

In the web app on PS4 yes that is the way we'd have to do it. Thanks.

Thanks Luke for the knowledge I didn't know PS4 browser does not support audio file playback. Thanks for letting us know about this knowledge.
