Issue: When I stop playing a 4K movie, server starts to transcode de movie instead of stopping the movie
Posted 04 December 2018 - 02:49 AM
I'm running Emby Server on a WD PR2100 NAS and using Android TV Client on Xiaomi Mi Box (last beta version, in final version I have the same issue)
When I start playing a 4K movie, movie starts fine using direct play, but when I stop the movie, the server, instead of stopping the movie, starts to transcode the movie and streams the audio to the Android TV client. At this point, I have to reboot both client and server.
I don't know if this is a server problem or a client problem.

If I hit Stop button in Emby’s control panel, stop movie also fails.

Thanks for that.
The player is encountering an error I've never seen before as it is in the process of shutting down. Our app is then interpreting that as a playback failure and re-trying. I'll need to fix that part.
How is everything hooked together hardware wise? I'm just curious how this error could be happening. The system is complaining that a display device doesn't exist anymore.

Hi, the hardware is pretty simple: A Xiaomi Mi Box International Version hooked to a Hisense 4K TV by HDMI. No more hardware. When I use a external player like VCL, the file plays and stops fine. There may be something with the internal player. It's strange, this only happens with 4K movies.

I have tested more deeply the playback of 4K videos with the new Xiaomi Mi Box S and the same error occurs. I have ordered an Nvidia Shield to Santa and I will endorse the Xiaomi Mi Box to my children, that they do not reproduce 4K. I hope that with Nvidia Shield I do not have the error. Merry Christmas!
