ANSWERED Movies Play But Not With External Player (VLC)

Recommended Posts

tntmedlin

Within the last few months, I was able to play my movies through Emby Theater / Media Browser with VLC.

 

Now, all movies play through the Emby Theater internal player.

 

I have uninstalled/reinstalled VLC and Emby Theater to no avail.

 

I'm running Win10 64-Bit and Emby 3.0.5859.23399

 

I NEED all movies to play through VLC external player.

Hi, what is 3.0.5859.23399, is that the Emby Server version, or Emby Theater version?
 

What versions of Emby Server and Emby Theater are you running? Can you update to the latest versions?

Emby Server: Version 4.0.2.0

Emby Theater: Version 3.0.5859.23399

 

Both say "up to date".

Ok, I would suggest installing the latest version of Emby Theater from our website:

Please let us know if this helps. Thanks.

Okay. Now my Emby Theater version is 3.0.6.

I can't play anything now (with the internal player or VLC).

 

I have never had an Emby Premiere account.

Now, when I click play, I am invited to unlock that feature with an active Emby Premiere subscription.

 

So, did certain features that used to be free now require a subscription?

 

As I don't like monthly payments, it looks like $120 stands between what I used to be able to do with Emby and the same features in a newer version. Right?

Hi, it's actually been 3-4 years now and for whatever reason you were just stuck on the old version. It was a major effort for us to produce an all new app and that's what it requires Emby premiere. We thank you for your support.
