OK that's good news. That means it can connect, but then it doesn't like something about the content so it crashes. Let's try this. Please create one home videos library with a folder containing one single mp4 video. Like this mp4 for example:

Does it crash then?

Yes exactly. Or it may not like the way we're presenting some of your content to it, that's possible too.

Thats unfornutae. Is there a way to create a profile that shows only the supported extensions? (maybe if you add them manually to the profile)

Yes, we just don't include one with the server. It's also possible that it could vary between Philips models/years.

When I open the network menu of the Phillips TV, I have two DLNA servers to choose from: Emby and the fritz box. If I plug in the same hard disk, which was previously connected to the Emby server, to the Fritz box I can play the content from the hard disk without the tv crashing. If I now plug the hard disk to the emby server, the TV will crash. That means it has nothin to do with the file extensions, or am i wrong?

I have about the same issue on a Philips TV. I have 2 LGs and none have this problem.

 

When I activate DLNA in the TV, I can see the server, then I access the server and I see an infinite list of folders. I actually have only one Library, named "Joaqui"(my sons name) but in the list I see that name repeated infinitely, and that seems to crash the TV app. I have to power off and on the TV to see DLNA again.

How old is your Philips?

Thanks. I think I will have to get my hands on a Philips so that I can test this personally.

I don't have much experience on C# developing. I don't even use Windows (I'm on a Mac right now). But I do have some programming expertise. I might be able to help if you give me a little guidance. For starters:

- Is there any docs on cross-compiling this for linux on a mac? (I'm running Emby on a Raspberry Pi 3, I write code in a Mac)

- Which file exposes the DNLA folders?

What do you mean by this?

I really don't know DLNA terminology, so I'll explain:

When I connect to the server through DLNA, I first see a list of servers, after I select Emby I see a list of folders (which are the collections names). Where is that code? Which files?

And after that (supposing that it works) I see folders like "Latest, "Genres", "Folders", etc.

@mfgea It's in the Dlna plugin. I can give you access to that if you want to try and chase down the problem. I think this one is going to be really hard to find. There's probably something in our xml responses that needs to be tweaked specifically for Philips. It's probably going to require comparing xml responses to other software that does work with Philips, as well as looking at the sequence of communications from Philips to Emby server to see how far it gets before it gives us, and then trying to compare that something else that works. You could do that even before debugging the plugin, perhaps using something like wireshark to intercept responses and compare.
