@ebr mainly I wanted to ask if you guys released an update to the app recently? I was having an issue that after working with Luke I figured out was related to ASS subtitles embedded in my files and roku TV. About a week ago any files with ASS subtitle codec stopped transcoding on my roku. A ffmpeg would start, would max out CPU, but never created any files and only a restart of the emby server would kill the thread. I had one run for 57 hours before I realized. 

 

It just started out of the blue one day, and I had assumed it was the server or ffmpeg that was the problem. I couldn't see how the roku (or any app) could cause ffmpeg to not create files and hang. But after talking with Luke I tested with other apps and found the same file played fine, even transcoding. Just hung using roku. 

 

Then yesterday, it all started working again. Same exact files that hung just started working again. No update or restart to my server, Emby, or Roku TV. So in the interest of trying to figure out what my problem was I'm wondering if anything changed with the app itself?

What version for the app is shown on the settings page?

 

There was not an update yesterday.

3.0 build 54

 

If there were no updates and changes, I have no clue why it stopped working out of the blue, then started again 5 days later. This makes no sense. I would have said there was something hinked up on my Linux, but restarts didn't solve it. And when it did start working again nothing had changed or been restarted. 

 

Anyway, thanks for the answer. I least I know what it wasn't.
