Input format settings for direct play or stream of live TV

Recommended Posts


My server is using too much CPU when playing live tv (using plugin), i have two PC's and i tried to encode the live tv using ffmpeg (x264, libmp3lame / x264 aac, with all possible bitrate combinations) and route the out to emby. Emby app stat says transcoding because mediabitrate exceed limit.


I even tried the same ffmpeg transcoding settings that emby use (from process view in linux). This also result in transcoding.


Can anyone post a ffmpeg setting that will result in an output stream that will directplay in emby app (mainly roku), i will not be worried if it is a single device, for each device playing emby starts a new process. so ultimately my server crashes.


My incoming format x264 aac
