Hello everyone

 

I got recently a Shield Pro which should my LibreELEC to replace.

And my plan is to switch directly to the Emby App instead of using Emby for Kodi.

 

But now I have discovered three things, that triggers a unwanted transcoding:

Subtitles in the "DVDSUB" format, m2ts container and DD+ 7.1 audio tracks (is supported by the speakers).

On Emby for Kodi its all fine (on the Shield). So can I do something against these issues in the Emby App?

 

Thanks.

Hi.  Sorry but DVDSub will require transcoding with our app at this time.  Due to them not being a streaming media subtitle format, Google isn't very motivated in adding support for them.

 

The issue with 7.1 DD+ is a current issue only with the Shield.  It has been reported to Google as well.

 

Thanks.

Is that the same as this addressed in the Exoplayer update? 

2.10.8 (2019-11-19)
E-AC3 JOC
Handle new signaling in DASH manifests (#6636).
Fix E-AC3 JOC passthrough playback failing to initialize due to incorrect channel count check.

If so, they have not acknowledged it in the issue report.

Thanks for the reply. I found answers from Google that they this only implement it is if someone delivers it... maybe I should search a converting solution for Vobsub to PGS.

DD+ is not tragic, is rather rare.

 

Only the m2ts containers surprise me. If I see it right, the Exoplayer and Shield should support it.

While you're at it, @@cayars could you also remove wma audio as direct play.

 

ATV converts to 128 bit mp3 as Exoplayer doesn't support the format.

 

Thanks

Two question:

1. Will you guys put effort into work around it or wait till Google adds support for it?

 

2. Why aren't PGS supported when external?
