Question about my network shares


Best Answer jachin99 , 27 March 2019 - 02:01 PM

Thanks for getting back to me ebr but I'll stick to my extenders for a while.  I was able to solve this particular problem by enabling the guest account on my file server.  I'll still have some work to do with codecs, and I know extender codec support is limited but so is my codec usage.  Its basically jpg, mkv & mpg2 & 4

Emby has direct access to my media library via network paths but for some reason, I get a streaming notification when I play files on an extender.  I also do not get my video backdrops on extenders.  This seems to happen with every file type and I have attached logs.

Hi.  MC Extenders have very limited codec support as they are really an extension of the old desktop sharing implementation in Windows.

 

There are lots of better streaming options these days...
