ANSWERED Live TV Setup + Playback Issues

Recommended Posts

kramer15

Hello:

 

I am a recent convert to Emby from Plex. I am trying to set up live tv with an iptv m3u account.  Everything works, however, Playback buffers, skips, or “loops” (goes back several seconds or minutes) and replays. I have searched the forums for solutions and tried several options, but the issue keeps occurring. I need help with the following:

  1. Are my settings correct (will post below).
  2. Could it be from my freenas server? (set up below).
  3. Would a faster internet connection solve the issue?

 

I have attached the Emby Server log and ffmpg log.

 

Emby (freenas) server settings:

 

Enable hardware acceleration when available:

Yes

Transcoding thread count:

Auto

Audio boost when downmixing:

2

H264 encoding preset:

Auto

H264 encoding CRF:

28

 

Internet streaming bitrate limit (Mbps):

5

 

Freenas Server:
Intel® Core i5-2300 CPU @ 2.80GHz (4 cores)

5TB

8 gig Ram

11.2 system

Hi there, can you try setting the CRF back to default?

Hi Luke:

 

Will do. I believe that was 23.

You didn't mention what your internet speed is. I believe the bare minimum you would need is 25 Mbps.

 

Is it buffering on both local and remote networks?

Hi Luke

 

I added two tv guide data proividers one Emby (direct tv, Cox) and the other XmLiTV (iptv-epg.com). Could this be the issue?  I have attached the logs.

I backtracked and deleted the two data guides (direct tv, Cox) and the streaming is working fine again, not sure why that would affect the stream. Thanks for your help.
