I have Emby Server installed on Raspbian on my Raspberry Pi 3. Everything works perfect EXCEPT for playback. Help please.

I finally, with the help of a friend (I have ZERO Linux experience) have set up Emby server on my R-Pi. I have it so it can read the drive I have plugged in (finally) and I have the folders associated with the appropriate movies, tv shows, music, etc. Everything works (Meta data shows, I can edit titles so it gets the proper meta data; the whole shabang) exactly as it did when I ran emby server on Windows 10, except when I go to play a video or song, it gives me this:

 

"Playback Error - No compatible streams are currently available. Please try again later or contact your system administrator for details."

I thought it could be a codec problem? I downloaded VLC to it and it will open the movie files, but barely play them.
 

I figured the playback device did all the work and it was just drawing the actual movie file from the R-Pi, but perhaps the R-Pi is the thing doing all the work (and isn't powerful enough to do so?)

 

WHAT DO I DO?

Please and thanks. I appreciate it.

Sounds like your media is being trancoded and the pi is not the machine you want for that.  You need all your stuff in direct play format, and a bitrate that fits within your network profile's bandwidth.  Post the server and transcode logs here and we can take a look.

I find the easiest way to get logs is to log into the emby server from a different machine and go to the emby admin dashboard. This is where you add libraries and such. Further down on the left side should be a selection for log files.

Here is one of the Transcode Logs:
