How to debug unnecessary transcoding / media bitrate exceeds limit

Best Answer Luke , 03 February 2018 - 12:48 PM

The player reported an error with the file so it automatically switched to transcoding. Try going back to Emby library setup and click on your folders that you entered and fill in the optional network path field. If Theater is given direct network access to the files then it can play that way which sometimes will offer a better experience. thanks.

To update my own post, it seems that when I loaded the server via Emby Connect, it was sending me over the internet rather than local. After deleting my server and adding via IP manually, it's fine. However, the cap over the internet still should have worked as the bitrate was well below 50Mbps (about 18Mbps).
