Why must my server transcode HEVC/x265?

I've been using Emby for a while now and just recently I've discovered that I cannot stream HEVC/x265 content - it needs to get transcoded for some reason.

 

Logs:

embyserver.txt https://pastebin.com/Tvpzj41N

ffmpeg-transcode https://pastebin.com/42aZEcYi

 

I do have to note that I'm running emby in docker.

 

I've tried running it with different base docker image (ubuntu based ffmpeg image https://hub.docker.com/r/jrottenberg/ffmpeg/ ) to get newer version of ffmpeg (4.1) but then I was getting ffmpeg related errors.

 

I do need to note that everything is working butter-smooth on my Android phone (Oneplus 6) version 3.0.45 without transcoding.

Above logs from web app are coming from Chrome on Mac OS.

chrome doesn't support hevc, thus the transcode to h264.  also why your oneplus streams it... android supports hevc.

Alright fair enough. https://caniuse.com/#feat=hevc states just what you've mentioned but at the same time Safari 12.1 should be supported but when I open emby on Web app it still transcodes.

 

(I'm running Mac OS Mojave which should work according to note: "Supported only on macOS High Sierra or later")
