There you have the last firefox version running the film for 1 min but with that loading icon in the middle of the screen without the control panel appearing.

The only browser that for me only starts quickly is the internet explorer. This movie was 26G

Hello,

 

My firefox version is 62.0 64bits. You tried, but with a 30G movie? Also my cpu power is 4c/4T but I imagine that shouldn't be a problem as internet explorer is just running quite fine.

 

Kind regards

Don't know then, I have no idea what could be happening, do you need anything else for me to test? Or how could we solve this?

Have you tried lowering the in-app quality setting?

I have tried again with firefox lowering the quality of the video, but no good results, the loading icon continues in the middle of the video while the movie is playing and the control panel with the pause, stop and play options is not appearing:

Any other idea?

I am running out of ideas at this point, aside from the network just not delivering it fast enough.

The thing is just quite weird, as if it was something with the nextwork on internet explorer it wouldn't work neither. Also I have a network of 1gbps and I have tested and there is no bottleneck between the 2 devices. So I wouldn't think it is a network problem

I have been testing now with my chromecast and I am having the same weird thing, only some films are being played, I am completely losted. Could it be the new debian version? As I tested with windows and everything seemed to be fine.

I am gonna test a little bit more, because when it was working it was on a windows on a different machine and network. Now I will do it with the same hardware. I will be letting you know once I have something

Hello,

 

It seems that all this bugs about the movies being played on chrome, firefox or chromecast is only happening when I set up a library in network, either CIFS or NFS. I have been watching the processes of my system and discovered that fffmpeg was using almost 1gbps of connection at the starting of the video even though the video was not being played, after closing the video because it was not being played the process continued like 3 min using almost 1gbps.

Any idea on why could this be happening, and why emby bugs up on network connec/tions.

In this case my host was pretty much capable of managing everything, I was using an 8/16 CPU with 16G of ram. When I tried on this same system the movies locally, everything was working fine, it ends up bugging when trying them remotely on CIFS or NFS.

Also, when I am finally able to start the movie, it doesn't use that amount of network, just between 100-200mbps. So do not know why I am getting those peaks

Hello again,

 

I have continued testing this and I have discovered more things, here they are:

 

-When I try to play a film and it bugs it starts using 300mbps of the RX connection, I imagine that form the NFS share server, once it starts playing it lowers to 98mbps, no idea why:

-Also I do not know why the RX is higher than the TX, as should be the same, the same data downloaded from the NFS share via RX and uploaded to the browser or other device via TX:

-And finally, here you can see the download connection when playing from internet explorer, there was not needed to download at 300mbps, it just started playing and downloading at 60mbps more or less:

@Luke are you able to guess anything of this? Because after all the testing I have done, I concluded that something wrong might be happening with emby at this stage.

More testing:

 

- It seems that when I am with no internet connection, I took out the gateway ip from my server, everything works great on all platforms, could be that for some reason emby server is trying to download any metadata or content before displaying the movie?

 

Kind regards

Ok, I think it has nothing to do with the internet connection, it might be something internally

Not the internet connection, I mean the local network connection.
