Emby Player 1.6.56g apk google playstore
 
Hi Guys my first time on this forum and speed learning with my Shield TV current generation with Emby installed.
 
I've had playback issues with all my AVI files. None playback at all.
Refresh rate switches then OSD pops up but just black screen and no audio either.
Tried the Playback Correction but no fix. 
 
I turned"OFF"Hardware Acceleration in settings and now AVI files play fine. 
Is this normal ???
 
Trannscoding:Hardware Acceleration: Yes = "Failed Playback." whilst Transcoding is in progress. (Reason Unsupported container)
Transcoding: Hardware Acceleration: Advanced (all Nvidia ticked) "Failed Playback."whilst Transcoding is in progress (Reason Unsupported container)
Transcoding: Hardware Acceleration: NO = "Perfect Playback" all AVI files whilst Transcoding is in progress (Reason Unsupported container)

My Emby Server will not play AVI files on any device. I have played back the files on my PC to confirm they work. This does not happen to every AVI file I have, just some ones from an old TV show called COACH. The Audio is mp3, and maybe that is an issue?

 

Tell me what logs are needed, where I find them, and how to post them and I will.

 

This is the first thing I have come across that Emby will not play. I am very thankful as a "plexile" to have emby, but this one little issue is driving me crazy!

 

I would suggest converting all your AVI files to h264 / AAC if you can.

I use HandBrake batch mode. Works awesome and has no noticeable quality change, I encode same bitrate as the AVI files.

This way you will have much better file support across all clients and less trouble in the future with no transcoding needed. I have done this since day 1 and have 0 AVI files in my library.
