so Emby for Android(beta now) is choppy again :( ... generally sluggish... Emby TV performs great but isn't meant to be displayed on a phone.. but I rather deal with that than with choppy music. it isn't as noticeable on Audiobooks, so I'll use Emby for Android for that and have the ability to tap on the progress bar. 

will try any new versions that come out and report back :)

When this happens, what kind of music files are you playing?


Just tried again with the latest release and the odd slow down effect has now gone so hurrah!
Trouble is music playback is now choppy and equally unlistenable so boo!

Tried this on mp3 and wav files with the same result.

Just requoting rather than editing my previous post to raise another flag in case you're monitoring Luke, but a very happy update to report.

 

I factory reset my phone which trigured a system upgrade to Android 7 (EMUI 5) and everything's now good so happy days.

We'll never know if it was the reset or system upgrade that cured it but all is well, it might be worth others who are affected trying a factory reset if they can stomach it.

 

I need to put back the apps I was running on the phone so will update here if I identify any resulting problems.

 

Thanks

Are you using the beta again? The results you are describing sound like the behavior of the stable release.

I can also confirm that on my Android 7 phone everything is working just fine, so that could be something to look at.

This was with the stable release (non-beta) as you say.

I've just put the 'stable' release on my partner's phone (which is the same as mine) as an experiment though it's not running the same apps as mine was.

 

I seem to recall she had to reset it recently though it's still on Android 6, the audio playback issues are problematic in exactly the same way as it was on my phone pre o/s upgrade so maybe it is something connected to Android 6.

 

Thanks

I am having a problem with this again after updating to 3.0.00.  I get stuttering every 5-10 seconds using my Bluetooth headset, after plugging in wired headphones music plays normally.

 

Reverting back to 2.9.92 also fixes the Bluetooth problem and music plays normally.

 

Xiaomi Mi Max 2, Android 7.1.1

 

Thanks

When I started this topic I was on an LG k20 and the issue followed me to an LG stylo 3 and the problem was way worse on both phones at that time. The song would start out fine and progress to being unlistenable with extreme choppiness and distortion. An update fixed the problem and I hadn't tried it since then. Just renewed my gym membership and of course wanted to use my favorite app to listen to my tracks on my home pc at the gym and I see the issue is back just nowhere near as bad as it was before. Noticeable stutters but nothing near as bad as the original problem. Tried it over 4g and wifi to see if that was the issue still frequent skips and as I said it only occurs through the app not through the browser. I don't really lose any features using it through the browser on my phone so it's not the worst thing in the world but of course the app is smoother. Thanks for all the hard work!

So far, music playback has been flawless on the latest version of the app.  Thanks for the update.

I have audio stuttering issues again after upgrading to the latest Android version.  I think there were two updates after 3.0.10, both updates had stuttering problems.  Again, uninstalled and reinstalled 3.0.10, back to normal.  Thanks.

This will be my first post to say I also get the same issue, and it's the only issue for now holding me back switching to Emby Premiere full time for a month to see how it holds up against my other media server.

 

I'm using a Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact paired to Bose QC35 headphones. Audio stutters in every song I play, which is mostly MP3 128-320Kbps and a handful of FLAC files.

Same problem here. Playback via bluetooth to my JBL speaker is at a slower speed and choppy.

Phone: Samsung J5, Android 6.0.1.

Thanks Luke.

 

I don't know if this is relevant but last night I was streaming (with jitter, slow down, whatever you want to call it) to a Bose Revolve Soundlink device. However, both Plex and Youtube were then stuttering as well until I closed all apps (including Emby) and started Plex by itself.
