Essentially what we do is take your title and plug it into the TVDB search engine, and the highest match is what we end up using, more or less.

It's developer terminology vs end user terminology, so yes it can be misleading and maybe the Emby website should describe the PS4 facilities as a "web application" instead to avoid the "app" keyword.

 

That would probably be the easiest way to reduce any confusion

Yep,  Yet another Customer That fell into the trap.     Heard some talk of Emby supporting IPTV  downloaded the server on my laptop just to give it a shot and see before moving it over to my server.   Install the server, setup the IPTV, Realize that i have to pay for a premier sub, Fine, i get it give my 5 bucks for a month (There really should be at least a 7 day trial to make sure your setup can work with everything) , Add the IPTV m3u again,   doesn't work....     Go into the file and cut down a bunch of the streams so there is an easier chance of figuring out this mess.   reupload the file, good channels work, epg isn't whatever deal with that later, ok go to test it on the PS4 find out that even though it says Emby TV APPS that is essentially a clunky webpage, It's bad enough using it with a keyboard and mouse, but trying to do anything with the PS4 controller is like getting a root canal.    You can use any of the normal "ps4" functions like O for back.

 

The lack of a real PS4 App needs to be highlighted much better than it currently is.  At least i'm only out the 5 bucks.

I just read that there are ps5 dev kits out there and Sony wants studio to focus on the ps5. We need someone in the game industry that is going to mainly focus on the ps5 to give you their ps4 kit. heh.

This too bad, for me the Emby website suggested that there is a Emby TV App for ps4 available, but I have to use the internal browser using http://tv.emby.media. But for me this has terrible performace and quality issues because my Emby server has to re-encode the movie on the fly to lower quality usable for the PS4 web browser. My Emby server doesn't have the power to do this, and even then I don't want to re-encode because I want to see and hear the movie in original high quality. And navigating a web app isn't quite the same feeling as a native app like the Plex app has.

 
Reading the forum now I understand the difficulties to develop a PS4 app. But still as a customer I feel mislead. I bought the Lifetime subscription plan because of the PS4 app and high quality movie streaming. But Emby is unusable for me now on the PS4. From the website I didn't expect at all that there is no native Emby app for PS4 capable of displaying high quality movies.
 
For now I went back to Plex server with the Plex app for my PS4 Pro with perfect performance and quality. I hope someday there will be a PS4 app, because on other platforms Emby looks very well and much better then Plex! I hope my Lifetime subscription plan will help development for the PS4 app some day. Meanwhile I will not advice anyone with a PS4 to use Emby. And the website should make this more clear.

I subcribed a year ago and said the ps4 option is laggy and bad in handling. Nothing has changed. You need the joystick/pointer to choose the movie you want to look. The other options of handling are full of bugs. 
Emby canĀ“t read discstubs, maybe a good chance to organize and look Blurays with Emby/ps4. User and there wishes are not not Prio One.
 
And why should they make this more clear with the ps4-App? Idiots like me and you buy a lifetime license and then they see the disaster with the webbrowser.

Patiently waiting.  I know its not the same thing but the streaming of content to PS3 / PS4 via DLNA works flawlessly for me.

I'm curious about emby on my PS4 as well. I know there's no app, and that's fine (not great) since it's not my main viewing platform. However, the enlmby website says to use the browser and go to tv.emby.media for emby theater. When I do this, it just loads the exact same interface as app.emby.media. Again this is OK, but not ideal. Am I doing something wrong? I don't have any issues with lag or low quality that some people are reporting, but for some reason when I make the browser full screen it cuts off the edges - an issue between the PS4 and my TV, not emby.

Can we get emby theater on my PS4?
I'm able to see all of my media in the native PS media player via DLNA, but for whatever reason the media player can't read the audio of my ripped DVDs (I verified the codecs and tried multiple. Not an emby issue, but it is why I want emby theater on my PS4.

I believe the interface is the same for tv.emby.media, but the controls are different. You should be able to navigate between objects on screen using your PS4 controller rather than using the controller to move the cursor around and select them manually. Unless I'm mistaken?
