Fairly new convert to Emby, moved everything over and turned off my plex auto renewal, I am well and truly sold.

 

Issue is around syncing to my iPad (2018 model with 12.1.1) using Emby for iOs version 1.7.1.

 

My emby server is running on a fitlet2 Linux Mint with server version 3.5.3.0 with Emby Premiere

 

Before christmas I was able to select a film and download it do my iPad either by choosing sync, or on the ipad choosing download, I always choose Original version so not coding and they play fine on my iPad.

 

I have tried deleting the iPad app and redownloading and then setting the sync again.

 

What happens now is after a short time it says "Ready to Transfer"... followed by 'Transferring 0%' where is just sits.

 

Does anybody know how to force the server or iPad to actually do the transfer. I can use Infuse to do the downloading but 1) I prefer the UI for Emby and 2) I need to be on the same network which defeats the object

Just wondering if there is an issue here as I also have had a series supposedly transferring to my iPhone for the last 3 weeks and seemingly no progress made. It has worked in the past

Follow up: Just turned my iPad on and all the films I had set to sync are now there. It looks like it just took an age to download them. I am used to Infuse and the way that it shows you both the percentage download and also seems to download them really quickly.

Hi, this is a display issue. We need to improve the real-time status display of the download. Thanks.

Thanks Luke, yes Infuse does this by showing a 0% in a circle then filling it up as it goes along, presumably it asks the file size and then calculates between 0% & 100%. Very importantly it doesn't show time; as this would be subject to constant change on a media such as wifi or 4G in my case.

 

Best wishes

 

Chris

Are you working on this issue. New server update didn't have this fixed. In ios client it only displays  0%, I understand it is a display issue but it is very irritating as you don't know how much have been transferred. I always ended up cancelling the sync as I don't know how much I have to wait for it to finish the transfer. Please fix this.

Interesting I bought a chromebook last week so installed the Emby from the Google Play Store and the Download Manager shows the progress, but of course this is not Emby just standard Android

We are working on it. The same type of progress indicator we did for the background camera uploads we'll be adding for the download feature. thanks.

My original question was nearly a year ago, to be honest I went back to Plex, the sync is a lot more transparent as is deleting things from the iPad. It only removes them from the iPad not from your server.

 

Also I bought a Hauppauge WinTV and it only works with Plex under Linux.

How does the download process work? Meaning, do I need to keep the app open? If I don't will it resume when I open it again?

At times things seem to download very quickly. Other times it seems like it's stuck on 0% for days. If I go into the item to edit it then save it, sometimes it kicks in but sometimes it seemingly does nothing.

@casminkey if you swipe close the app, then the OS will not trigger the background fetch, so I would not do that.
