i believe apple tv 4k was released on 2017 , emby still don’t support 4K HDR without transcoding it just incredibly , im using the last beta version and every Remux 4K HDR MKV is transcoding, at the same time order’s players have no problems, it’s just mind blowing

Yep, though this would be a smaller percentage of the home user market, but growing every year. 99% of my content is DVR and live tv. For now, if on Apple TV, I believe Infuse is the best bet as they do very well with 4k and it can play all your Emby content, just not within the single Emby app. I connect on my LAN to the same server via SMB and it works flawlessly. Just the minor hassle (to me) of a second app. So, we use Emby for DVR/livetv, and, Infuse for all our other content. It actually works even cleaner than that. We watch dvr/livetv in our living room, but movies in the theater room. So, it's really 1 app for each, Emby for lviing room, and, Infuse for theater room.

 

But, agree it's been a long time. Hopefully, that will change.

4K HDR is a small % of my media. I can say 90% SDR versus 10% HDR. But that 10% is the newest content and it's the content I want to watch.

Buy MRMC and use that as the issues with Apple TV and Emby appear to be endless.  No matter how much work the devs do, Apple's system of tieing everything down has apparently made it impossible.

Infuse is much nicer, cleaner, easier, less buggy IMHO, or, try them both and pick. I own both.

Apple has locked down everything completely.  You don't see the issues the Emby devs have with Android, with Roku.  The fact so many people are surprised there are these many problems with a company that has a lock down on their hardware stronger than Trump's fingers on his twitter account astonishes me.  Apple has never been friendly with people playing their own media, EVER.

It's a time, resource issue, and priority issue, not a development issue. Disagree that there needs to be an issue. Plex, etc do not have the same issues. There is good and bad on every platform. Use the one most suited to your needs and biases by all means!

And I thought fanboys (of any platform) arguing for THEIR platform went out 5 years ago. Sigh.

Nothing to do with being a 'fanboy'. More like I hate crap tech made by a company that drank its own coolade but hasn't died yet, kinda boy. Crapple is closed source, which is very much the death of forward thinking in tech. Do they really think what they have is so special that they have protect it? Crapple simply is the epitome of all that is bad in consumer technology. Its about as good as fisher-price. Teddy Ruxpin could probably play more media. They don't even support matroska, for eff sake! I have a deep loathing for anything crapple. Burn, crapple, burn! :)

Then do us all here a favor and keep your platform opinions and baseless points to yourself, lol. We'll do the same for you. You must have a lot of free time like all the political posters if you have nothing better to do than post garbage for no purpose or use. Do you honestly think people in this forum care to hear what you think?

Sounds like Dunning-Kruger effect.

You need to read more. Baseless? They support almost nothing.

Apple TV is intended to be a streaming device. I like its interface and provides content not available in any platform, at least in Spain. I have no other way to buy or rent a digital copy of a movie with decent quality.
 
But playing local media is another world. Even Apple TV is a capable device with a nice GPU, Apple makes things harder. In Android TV you just drop an MKV to Exoplayer and the job is done. In Apple TV you have to stream that content to the device making things harder, or use your own player to direct play that content. That costs money.
 
Even I like Apple TV I blame Apple to make things harder. If Apple wanted, they could make some changes to native player to increase direct playback, but that's not he case, on the contrary, Apple TV had audio passthrough and they removed it.
 
Direct playback in Apple TV requires an extra effort, that effort costs money. A company has the right to assess whether this effort is worthwhile. Some companies make the effort and other doesn't.

Sorry, I was watching Passengers mkv in 3d on my Apple TV. How can that be? Well, it's called open source. The same thing that powers other platforms. The same thing they used, the same thing Plex uses, and many other products use. It's a pretty weak argument being made since said open source seems to run just fine on my Apple TVs. I know the argument will shift, now it's what is built in or whatever, but I'd rather spend time doing something FOR the product whose forum we are in. I can mock any platform, but why? Heck, always surprises me how many "open source people" actually run Windows of all things, gee, that's always been open, lol. Or Emby (is that open source)? I use (like I hope others do) the best products that work for my use cases. If someone doesn't like what I use, really don't care what they think. I will continue with the 50+ apps running on my Apple TVs as they do all of the things I need them to do. 

 

 But I do agree about passthrough.  :) To me, that's the biggest "improvement" (ahem) that can be made. Video is one thing, but, I love audio, it makes so many movies.
