Hi there guys!
I have emby installed on my tinkerboard. Since I always make sure to have my files encoded in the right format it works splendidly for streaming movies and shows to me and my partner.
Weirdly, though, when my partner is streaming on her MacBook the video files always get remuxed. This proves to be too much to handle comfortably and the videostream buffers heavily every once in a while.
In the dashboard I get this notification:
The media is compatible with the device regarding resolution and media type (H.264, AC3, etc.), but is in an incompatible file container (.mkv, .avi, .wmv, etc.). The video will be re-packaged on the fly before streaming it to the device.
The file container I use for all of my files is mkv. Which would be the right container for MacOS Mojave?
From the ffmpeg log I could deduce that it is remuxing to a .ts file container. I already remuxed a file by hand to this container format, to see if it would be helping but the problem persists.
Here is an excerpt from the ffmpeg log:

Does anyone have any experience with streaming to MacOS in the Web App and could help me out?
