ANSWERED playback problem: old home movie in MPEG-PS format

Recommended Posts

mchahn

I'm getting "Playback Error: No compatible streams are currently available. " when trying to view an old (20 years ago?) home movie.  It was created by the app Nero.  I am trying on the Chrome web browser.  I've attached the relevant part of the log.  Note the execution errors.

 

This is from mediainfo on the file ...

Ok then please just take a chunk out from the beginning because i'd like to see the startup sequences.

 

And you're saying other videos are fine?

New files, mostly mkv of h264, show fine.

Including ones that need transcoding, these are fine?

Transcoded files play fine.  I just checked by setting playback to 1 mbs and seeing low quality.

 

I have a new issue that is truly weird.  I can't show jpeg files.  The images are just black.  I've enclosed the log.  I've double checked that the files show fine elsewhere.

For the video, I guess I would need a copy to test it otherwise you may just want to re-encode it to mp4.

For the photos, looks like emby server is unable to access them:

System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path '/mnt/media/home/2008 xmas-small/small-036.jpg' is denied. ---> System.IO.IOException: Permission denied

Changing permissions fixed both the video and jpegs. So I have to manually change permissions every time I add something to the library?

No you should be able to handle it from a folder level recursively.
