Hi, why I can't play a .strm file directly from the source (google drive) without using my server for transcoding?

It's working perfectly for Google chrome but not for Android/iOS apps.

Hi there, we can't verify the legality of the content so for app store releases we run all remote streams through your emby server.

 

If we were to direct play to remote urls that are known sources of pirated content, this could put us in jeopardy of violating app store policies. Thank you for your understanding.

Is there any alternatives? Or add-on like jellyfin that allow me to direct play?

And also there are many apps on Google play that allow to play direct like kodi

And Kodi was kicked off of Amazon due to this type of reputation.

 

We're sorry, but we simply cannot take that chance.

 

BTW - The items should not be actually transcoding unless needed.  They will just be fed through your server.
