For some reason I am unable to get playlist (live) to work. Continuous works but i find my content doesnt hold the same aspect ratio so it doesnt really like continuous mode, but thats neither here nor there....Id rather get Playlist mode to work.

When I put it on playlist mode and select it, it goes to a black screen for 30 seconds then drops back to home.

 

ONLY think i have found in the logs was

/var/lib/emby/metadata/library/00/00e6b1ff67d0cfb65ba8825631fe1b94/backdrop.png

so....i donno.

 

Anyhelp would be amazing. Thanks!

You could start with: What device and client? Local or remote connection? Full log?

Nevertheless, try to "Play on ..." something from a browser session on your server device to the device where the virtual channels don't work. If that also fails and you have configured a web proxy, make sure that it allows websockets.

Chrome in the debian container or elsewhere? LAN or WAN? Full log? Have you tried the test that i suggested?

So, as you can see Im not great at this. @pünktchen sorry bout that.

Emby is running in a debian container in Proxmox
I tried to use playlist mode in chrome on my windows 10 desktop. did not work.

used firefox to stream to my cellphone (samsung z fold). it worked.
Tried playing in firefox (windows 10) and it works.

It seems to dislike chrome and emby theater.

I use a containerd ngnix proxy manager and have websockets support on.

 

I sent you some logs. I dont know if they are correct

When i attempt to chrome cast the channel i have created to a chrome cast device it fails to start. Curious if chrome cast might of already been tested and working with this plugin?

The only way i can get it to work is to set it to continuous playback (Live) which seems to force transcoding

Any plans to update for 4.8?

Able to get channels up and running but when i press play it shows me the loading icon and nothing more. Logs don't show much.

Tried over LAN and WAN, android, different web browsers.

including log

Why? 4.8 is not different than 4.7

It only shows the guide refresh, but no (complete) playback attempt.

Sorry for the late answer, but obviously you've already found what's working and what's not. Playlist playback will not work with casting and there's nothing i can do here.

Well, currently continuous playback (live) breaks everything and gives a constant playback error (no compatible streams) for me. I used to have 4 channels on playlist(live) and they all played correctly, i switched 2 channels to continuous playback (live) and now no channel will play. the logs look exactly the same as above.

I don't believe that. Your previous log wasn't even a full log, it was cutted after a guide refresh. Go into your log folder and just delete everything. In Emby Logs make sure debug logging is enabled. Rotate the log file under Scheduled Tasks. Try to play a channel, but make sure no other task is running at that time and no other user is playing something. Send me the whole content of your log folder.

I actually downloaded the whole log, but believe what you will. Debugging was not enabled for anything in that log so that may be why. I've enabled debugging for both virtualtv and emby itself and rotated them as requested. and here they are. Uncut and raw for your pleasure. Even went onto a clickorama.

I'm seeing this though :

i use to beable to point to a whole folder and it would add all the shows too the tv channel. those channels have stopped working and the only ones that are working are the ones were i have desinated each show. has something changed in the updates for this? do you need anything in tags if u want the whole folder of shows to be added?

I think i've changed this long time ago. You have to use at least one condition that fulfills your needs. It doesn't have to be tags.

Yeah I have been running the same channel for a long time and when I updated to latest dll file the ones thst were blank didn't work anymore so if I have two drives with classic TV shows1 and classic TV shows 2 how do I put something in where it will pull all the shows from these two drive something with a *?

I know this has been talked about before but recently I have noticed it being much more frequent. 

Episodes repeating themselves in less than 24 hours.

As my wife sits here this morning watching the Food Network channel I’ve set up she is viewing an episode that was shown less than 24 hours before. I also notice it with my Family Guy channel. Seem pretty consistant and almost always repeats within a 24 hour time frame.

Is there any way to get things more randomized? I have plenty of any given show to pull from yet it consistently does this and also only seems to pull from a small subset of episodes.

It sounds like you need to simply adjust the guide refresh delay setting within the main settings of the plugin. I am guessing yours isn't set or is set to 24 hours. Change it to a longer time frame. It's titled something like "disable creation of new programming for _ hours" (apologies as I am not at my computer at the moment so I can't be more specific)

I don't know if this will help you at all, but I had this problem until I put (for example) '1900' for minimum release date. All I needed in my case was to add that and mine populated afterward. (I am only chiming in as I use a similar setup for classic tv channels).

Mine is at a of default of 0?

Could that be the issue? Ive refreshed guide data manually and it still seems to be the same?

Suggestion as to a number to put in there?

Thanks for your help!
