Just a little feedback on my initial experiments with 4K playback using the Emby LG app.
I'm finding some 4K content works and some doesn't.
'Sully' 4K for instance will not play on the Emby LG App. It will play on the LG Plex app. Same results for 'Jigsaw' and 'It'.
I'm playing UHD rips from my 4K blu-rays made using makemkv.
That being said, where files do play I am noticing quality degradation. 'Argo' for instance streamed via the LG app looks terrible (however the server does say it's direct playing).
'Argo' streamed via DNLA to my UHD blu-ray player looks far, far better and as per the disc.
So as it stands, if I want to watch 4K rips using Emby, the LG app is not up to the job. This may in part also be due to the TV itself. DNLA to the TV also results in reduced quality (however all files do manage to at least play, same as Plex). There could also be bandwidth issues involved. The LG TV does not have a gigabit LAN port.
To sum up, the only way for me to get the true 4K (exactly as per the disc) is to stream using my phone or iPad via DNLA to my Oppo UDP203 and then HDMI into the TV.
Emby LG app plays some 4K (albeit in reduced quality.
Plex LG app plays all 4K (albeit in reduced quality).
