playback hangs/drops after cinema mode pre trailers

Recommended Posts

MrPippali
So I am having trouble with my pre-movie trailers in cinema mode on everything but the web browser.

The playback will play the trailer and then either hang there or just stop.

Have had a look in the dashboard while it happens and it doesn't seem even to try to start transcoding/playing the movie.

 

I am using a set of custom 2-5 second trailers that appear before movies

only resolution i have found is to turn it off for now but would realy like to keep using it

 

logs atached and even willing to read other articles to try fix but its been 2 days of searching with no luck sofar

Hi.  It looks like part of your test was with Android TV.  Can you please follow the instructions to send a log from the app after recreating this issue?

 

Thanks.

Hi there,

 

I'm having the exact same issue with Emby Theater.

I use tags to play a specific intro video.  After the intro video is complete it attempts to start the movie but all I get is the movie background with the spinning circle.

I've tried this on several movies and on different PCs with the same results.

 

Attached is my log file.

 

Thanks

It's working ok for me, in Theater. I tried a range combinations of settings. The only issue that I saw was that sometimes it didn't play one of my intros.

I am yes

sometimes it plays the intro, and sometimes it doesn't play anything just a spinny wheel till I restart the app on android ios and android tv

webbrowser still works fine

 

and my tv still keeps crashing the app when I try to submit the report sorry; i'll keep trying though

 

EDIT:

I just threw the intro into video's as an experiment to see if I could play it...

this video run's the exact codec that I use for my movies, and I even reconverted it to make sure that it was the same as the movies I have on my server.

And i can't play it...

dose emby have a minimum length for videos iit can play??

 

@Doofus, how long are your intro's out of curiocity?

 

mine is 3 sec at 5.5Mb (1263kbps), ".mp4" h.264 1080p

 

if it helps I can even send you the clip

I doubt it's the length, but there's probably something else that those players don't like about it. Put it in a zip file and attach it.

That item does play fine on my Mi (although, the content makes it look like there's a problem ;)).

 

It is possible it is somehow a timing problem in your environment though.  Is it only this very short version that has the problem?

Do you have the framerate switching option turned on? That is something that delays playback start so, if so, try with it off.
