Recently discovered Emby and would like to get it running from my NAS-like setup
Could not find much guidance for cubox-specific help
Cubox-i4pro -> Armbian -> Emby Server (from armbian-config)
The cubox use to be my htpc with archlinuxarm until support fell off. Wasn't able to play most of my movies stutter-free
So I replaced it with an RPI3B+ and so far so good, now the cubox is a NAS server
Playing through the web interface on Chrome requires transcoding, right? Well the cubox is struggling to play certain videos smoothly
One test video came through as "direct play" as I guess transcoding was not necessary and played flawlessly on Chrome
Recently got the following hoping for one of these to properly utilize the hw decoder
gstreamer1.0-vaapi gstreamer1.0-libav libgstreamer1.0-0 libgstreamer1.0-dev gstreamer1.0-alsa gstreamer1.0-tools gstreamer1.0-pulseaudio gstreamer1.0-plugins-base libgstreamer-plugins-base1.0-0 gstreamer1.0-plugins-good gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad libgstreamer-plugins-bad1.0-0 gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly
Rebooting and reviewing the transcode options in the web interface settings show no changes
Is there something I am missing for the cubox specifically to allow for full use of the hardware?
Or more specifically:
- Is the cubox a capable Emby server with transcoding or should be reserved to direct stream?
- If direct stream, is there another route to have Chrome play with audio?
- If direct stream, can the RPI3B+ handle the transcoding itself?
- If transcoding, how can I guarantee I am using the cubox hardware to it's full potential?
Attached are playback logs, all with trancoding enabled and had skips/stutters
Any help is greatly appreciated
