DLNA does not work with Version 3.5.2.0

Hello,

since upgrading to emby server Version 3.5.2.0 my DLNA does not work anymore.

I run a QNAP TS-451+.

Also the QNAP DLNA server is affected.

 

When downgrading to emby Version 3.5.1.0 everything runs smooth again.

 

Anything I can assist in resovling this issue?

 

Best

With great pleasure :)

 

So, since updating to emby server Version 3.5.2.0 my DLNA does not work anymore.

 

This means that none of my devices (Sony, Samsung) show the emby as an DLNA source. Also the QNAP DLNA server is not shown anymore.

In other words: via DLNA I cannot access any movies on my NAS anymore. There is simply no server on display at the DLNA device.

 

When I downgrade to emby Version 3.5.1.0  the DLNA access works as before (all servers are visible on all devices).

 

Send you the server log as private message.

 

Thanks

H.

The QNAP TS451+ is running a DLNA server.

I always thought that emby requires this core-functionality to provide its own DLNA service.

 

Until the last emby version, everything worked fine and both DLNA services were running without affecting each other.

Yea I don't know the reason for the conflict yet, but for now shutting down other dlna software should resolve it.

OK, I stopped the QNAP DLNA services and now the emby DLNA works again.

Weird that this problem started with the new server version. Before that, it was not an issue

I have the same problem after upgrading to 3.5.2.0. But I can't identify the other program that is using port 1900.

I've stopped another service of which I already disabled the dlna service and restarted Emby but still not working.

 

I've attached the logfile.

 

Hope you can solve this.

 

Cheers,

Joost

I had to stop download station and turn off upnp discovery on my qnap to get dlna to work on 3.5.3.0. Qnap dlna was already off (and twonky).

 

This link shows how to check what is using a particular port (in this case I was looking for "1900"). First it was "dsd" (download station daemon) then "qvs0" (qnap upnp discovery)...

I have the same issue with emby-server 3.5.3. Emby dlna/upnp is not visible with dlna clients (TV, android client). The emby-android app and the webapp works just fine though. Interestingly, I can use the "play on" menu to play content on devices (TV for example). 

 

I  do not have any other dlna server running. I double checked with netstat and only emby seems to be using port 1900. Shows up as: 

ArchZen :: ~ » sudo netstat -nap | grep :1900
udp        0      0 0.0.0.0:1900            0.0.0.0:*                           722/dotnet 

I setup kodi dlna to verify that it wasn't a networking issue - it works correctly.

Kodi definitely uses port 1900 (UDP) for something. It is not explicitly documented - but upnp would be obvious guess.

 

Enabling/disabling the kodi dlna server only changes the status of a tcp listening port 2044. I can see in the logs that "platninum" (upnp sdk used by the kodi project) is listening on that port. This is what the upnp client on my phone establishes connection.

many thanks to Newbie!

 

I had to stop download station and turn off upnp discovery on my QNAP 251+ to get dlna to work / Qnap dlna was already off.
