Download/Sync function respect selected movie "version"

It would be nice if the selected movie "version" will be respected when clicking the download or sync button.

I have two versions for every movie, one for the (big) tv's and one for mobile devices. Now my Android device downloads the biggest file no matter which one I've selected.

Hi, there is value in the automatic selection. If you pick a quality that is lower than the original, then the smaller one should get downloaded.

How do you mean if you pick a quality? You mean if I enable transcoding in the download settings, then press download at a movie? The MB/s picker? But if I do that, there's also a possibility Emby starts transcoding, which I want to avoid..

It should still be there. What do you mean by turn off transcoding?

 

Are you referring to user permissions?

Hi, 

 

I'm testing syncing option to a local folder, in my test I put the bandwidth to 4 Mbps so for a movie I have 3 versions :

  • 4k HEVC
  • 1080 
  • 720 4 Mbps in the sync folder

 

when I try to download on my phone, I choose 4 Mbps, the 1080 is transcoded to a temp file and then downloaded

 

is there a way to direct download the 4 Mbps version ? the purpuse is to create a lot of 4 Mbps version of multiple files and store it on the sync folder for "quick offline download".

 

To be more specific, I have an Ipad and I want to put movies on it but my original files are +10 GB and I don't have a lot of space on it. If I have to make space on it, I want to know if there a way to download "sync version" only or I have to create a mobile version for each ? and if I create a mobile version can I download it ? 

 

i'm testing it, I have 4k, 1080 and mobile version (automatically based on 4K version) but I don't know with version i'm actually downloading on my iphone, I select mobile version, .vtt sub and select download

I think this is not possible to download a specific version, app always select the "originial" / bigger file

Exactly, that's what I ment. When I'm turning on transcoding in the user settings (Users -> Select User -> Enable "Allow media downloading and syncing that requires transcoding") I am able to select a specific quality, via a specific MB/s. It will almost always transcode now, also when there's a version available that's playable on any device and under/around the specified MB/s. If I disable the above setting just the highest available quality will be chosen. 

 

Next to that It's also not possible to use transcode the audio.

 

So two problems:

1. I'm not able to select one of the two versions already available before downloaden.

2. I'm not able to only transcode audio if the video is already capable for playing on the device.

 

Both are kind of needed, because I really don't want my PC to transcode everything me and my family are downloading to devices. Next to that it's also annoying to wait for everything to be transcoded, especially if there's a suitable version available already...

I'm not a code master, I'm reading a lot of community topic and here is what I understood of Emby

 

1. the automatic decision of the app is based on the web app : 

  • for download original quality ==> download higher resolution file (the web app does not have transcoding option for download, I saw it on a topic, it only can download higher version)
  • if the device need transcode ==> transcode the lower resolution
  • mobile version is only for users who want to direct stream, but they have to choose it before starting the stream

2. if a mobile wants to sync a version, back to 1 : automatic decision 

 

3. sync folder is another way to play a specific transcoded file with a specific quality. It is also a way to stream a file from the cloud (google drive etc), backup purpose... it is usefull but I don't figure now how is this usefull (in my case)

 

4. there is no way to decide wich version we want to download, I think the only way is to have 1 movie / 1 version in the library instead of 1 movie / mutiple version

if you want the 4 mbps sync version I don't have it anymore but I can generate it if you want

Can you attach the same info for the 720p version? I bet we will see it is slightly above 4 mbps.

sory i'm late, I can't see the 720 version informations because it's a "folder sync" version, the informations at the bottom of the movie page only show files on the emby video folder. So I have 4k, 1080 and mobile 4Mb version. I think folder sync and mobile version has the same info

Can you do a playback test for me - set your in-app quality setting to 4 mbps. Then on the detail screen for this video, manually select the 720p version. How does it play? Does it direct play, or transcode?

Just test folder sync and mobile version through LG tv emby app, 720 4 Mb version

 

Both direct stream auto, force 4 Mb 720 also direct stream but notice Near 2 sec delay on subtitles (vvt).

 

Forcing bitrate from 5 to 10 Mb do not delay subtitles

Just to come back to the first question of this topic, the question why I created it:

 

Is it possible to implement the same "rules" for the download functionally as the stream functionally?

 

I don't want my server to transcode any video, because it doesn't have to. For each movie there is a version that will play on all devices already. It's 720p h264 with stereo aac audio. So the download functionally only needs to respect the selected movie version in the app.

 

An extra option to only transcode audio (like which is available with streaming as well) could be handy though, some apple devices have trouble with AC3 or aac5.1. but still I want the video to be untouched in this case..

 

Reason: if we're leaving for holidays it's nearly impossible to all make our favourite movies/tvshows offline available! It takes too long for everything to be transcoded etc. And that's annoying because if we all stream our content everting is directplay/stream or maybe one audio transcoding.

 

Would something like this be possible?

Hi, all you need to do is select original quality when using the download feature, and that's what it will do.

No, it will not do.

 

As explained before I've two versions for each movie. Which is selectable by clicking on the preferred "version" on the movies main page. If you play (stream) the movie, it respect the version I selected. If I press download, it'll do some magic I don't want it to do and randomly chooses one of the two versions.

 

If you don't understand it, you can read my first post. If you still don't get it please try to explain which part you don't get so I can try to explain that part more clearly.

 

I'm on holiday now, annoyed that I can't download my 720p AAC version but instead it always tries to download the 1080p DD5.1 version which takes way too long and uses way too much space on my phone.
