Hi All,

 

I'd like to be able to set device preferences so that emby automaticaly knows to use these settings on that device.

 

For example, on my main TV, I would want emby to use HD Audio or DTS/AC3 where possible and not default to the 'default' AAC Stereo Audio track.  Likewise for 4K or HDR - if it's available, then it should use those files.

 

Each device has a capabilities.json file in \programdata\data\devices\ and this appears to be where the device settings are held and I'm wondering if these can be manipulated to set capabilities as 'preferences' ?

 

Has anybody played with these settings ?

Hi.  Those are only used for DLNA playback from the server.

 

Each app queries the device at the time of playback to determine the capabilities.

Ah ok thanks for replying ebr - I wondered why changing them made no difference to playback ..  :D
