Server should not fail to start a stream when accessing non-essential data from third party services

Heya,

 

So I've been pulling my hair out the past few days trying to figure out why my server has been intermittently failing to play new media I uploaded. Turns out the problem came down to a call in the TVDB plugin. Reading over the logs, it seemed to be failing due to a fetch of a movie poster timing out. Trying to hit the URL myself did indeed reveal that they seem to be having issues currently.

 

That's beside the point however. Emby should not fail to play my media if a plugin can't complete an HTTP request. I don't care that my server couldn't download a poster when I'm trying to watch a movie. That's a "log an error, substitute with some default image, and carry on" type of issue.

 

Is the TVDB plugin open-source? I'd be willing to dive in and submit a fix if I can get at the code.

 

Here's the relevant log snippet:

I have never had a image issue prevent or stop playback of any media.  You provided a image processing error, is there a playback error?  But you will probably have to post a server log provided specific times of attempted playback.

I could not get the error to induce with the exact piece of media I was trying before. It looks like Emby caches images from TVDB. I was able to induce it by performing the following:

  1. Edit my server's HOSTS file (/etc/hosts) to point www.thetvdb.com to 0.0.0.0 to ensure failure to communicate with TVDB
  2. Edit the metadata of an existing series to point at a series on TVDB I did not have on my server
  3. Restart server
  4. Force refresh of metadata on the now incorrectly identified series.

This resulted in the server returning a "Stream not available" error when trying to play the media after my server completed the refresh (~1 minute). I was able to confirm the refresh succeeded because all of my media in that series displayed the filename instead of the episode title.

 

Logs are attached.

@@yuzu_pup, actually I'm wondering if you could try the beta server. That would be extremely helpful as we've updated from .NET Core 2.2 to .NET Core 3.1. That may help reconcile some of the differences across operating systems as I can't reproduce this on Windows but I have seen similar things on both Linux and Android. Thanks !
