So the same Windows 7 installation is now working fine?

OK, to confirm a few things:

 

1) If I uninstalled and reinstalled Emby Theater from scratch, it should reset everything to default right?  When I reinstalled Theater, it detected the server on the local network automatically.  I then just tried to play videos from there.

 

2) By Windows Audio, do you mean choosing the right output device, and configuring playback (speaker settings et. al from there)?

 

3) What settings should I check in the library config on the server?  As I mentioned initially, Emby Server is running in a Docker, and I have the mount points directed at the IP address (rather than hostname) of the server and corresponding folders.  I'm not sure why Theater would be blocked from accessing the files, as all the files are public, do not require a login or password and accessible through the network and Emby WMC or Web.

 

Unfortuantely, I don't have any other Windows 7 machines in the household to see if Emby Theater is just acting up on that machine.  I just installed a fresh copy of Theater on a Windows 10, left settings at default, and it played the theme songs/videos, and the episodes or film without errors.

So it sounds like you have something going on with that win 7 machine.

Yah, just a bit puzzling why other clients work on the same machine but Theater doesn't unless it accesses the networked files differently vs. EMC.  I'll try installing a fresh copy of Windows 7 tonight to see if Theater will work then.  But likely, I'll just install Windows 10 but have been hesitant due to some previous driver issues.

Windows 10 has a bug, right now. Hopefully they'll release a patch, today. So test with Win 7 SP1, first.

Luke, this was resolved. It was a GPU driver issue with win 7.

Just to clarify, base installation of Windows 7 worked fine.  Once updated to current official GPU drivers, streams did not play through native player in Theater.  Switched to Windows 10, and apparently things are working well.  Thank you to you and Doofus for all the troubleshooting!
