I have a very specific scenario here. I have a stream file (.strm) that points to a .m3u8 stream. I am able to play this stream but it doesn't pick the highest quality.
The .m3u8 file:
#EXTM3U #EXT-X-VERSION:3 #EXT-X-STREAM-INF:BANDWIDTH=614000,AVERAGE-BANDWIDTH=564000,RESOLUTION=480x270,CODECS="avc1.77.30,mp4a.40.2" 270/prog_index.m3u8 #EXT-X-STREAM-INF:BANDWIDTH=1118000,AVERAGE-BANDWIDTH=1028000,RESOLUTION=640x360,CODECS="avc1.77.30,mp4a.40.2" 360/prog_index.m3u8 #EXT-X-STREAM-INF:BANDWIDTH=1998000,AVERAGE-BANDWIDTH=1828000,RESOLUTION=960x540,CODECS="avc1.77.30,mp4a.40.2" 540/prog_index.m3u8 #EXT-X-STREAM-INF:BANDWIDTH=3318000,AVERAGE-BANDWIDTH=3028000,RESOLUTION=1280x720,CODECS="avc1.77.30,mp4a.40.2" 720/prog_index.m3u8
Emby is not picking the 1280x720 stream. It is using the 480x270 stream. I have a excellent internet connection and am able to even stream 4k comfortably. Why would a 720p stream be difficult for Emby?
I have also set 4k as home network quality.
I get about 100mpbs download speeds.
