My issue is inconsistency with playback, sometimes it's fine for a whole episode playing flawlessly, others for 15-20mins playing how it should then it hangs up and other times it hangs up immediately before playing then stopping and playing repeatedly. This is understandably frustrating as I just switched over from Plex and purchased the Lifetime membership for Emby. (I'm all in!)
All my testing has been done on a series of episodes and a movie with the originating format being MKV. Local testing has been done using an X-Box and remote testing has been done using the Nvidia Shield.
My first thought was that it had to do with transcoding but as the Emby dash board says it's all Direct Playing, I have no idea why it's having such issues.
The testing was done on the x-box attempting to play Angry Birds which is an MKV also tested on Nvidia shield with the same stopping issues.
The primary remote testing was done on Brooklyn 99 with the same inconsistent results.
I even used the convert feature in Emby and converted the Brooklyn 99 episodes all to MP4 and it still has the exact same issues.
First off my server stats are as follows;
- Gigabyte MW50-SVO
- Intel Xeon E5 v3 3.5Ghz
- Nvidia Quadro P2000 (for hardware accelerated transcoding)
- 32GB RAM
- Server Raids 2x Intel Hardware RAID 5s both 4x 8TB Firewolfs (one for TV shows and one for Movies)
- Internet up and download are over FIOS getting 500mbps up and down
The server is located remotely.
I'm using an Nvidia Shield as my playback device.
Here are all of the logs, I apologize for my ignorance in not knowing how to tell which logs are relevant but I thought I would attach them all for the relevant time period just in case...
