the Emby process is taking about 1GB of memory on the NAS 


I'm just guessing but that may be the key as that is fully 1/3 of the RAM on the device and Android probably isn't optimized for apps that use that much actual memory.

It's definitely possible.  This weekend I'll try rebuilding the Shield server again and only set up my TV or Anime library to reduce the overall footprint and see if that makes a difference.  What's odd though is now that I'm looking at the Shield's RAM usage with using the top command, I don't see Emby's RES memory ever going above roughly 300MB, with %MEM staying at 10.1% or below before it crashes.  VIRT is 1.8GB, but that's still below Pluto's 2.2G and Youtube's 2.6G (both background, closed processes).



Beyond that, can you think of any major jumps between and that would explain why the older version is still stable with the same library?  There's so many changes listed between those versions I wouldn't know where to start looking.

It looks to me like a crash coming from the image processing library that we're using, skiasharp.
