Question about my interlaced content

Recommended Posts

Alefielm

Hi I have some video files detected as 1080i and not playing to Chromecast, it plays fine on Samsung TV native player via stream from emby.

What could be happening? Any metadata I can give you to help identify and solve the wrong format detection?

Thank you

Thank you statula, sorry about not reading that topic.

 

Emby server Linux Version 4.3.1.0

Player: Chromecast Ultra

 

ffmpeg Log attached, video shows black screen for some seconds, then start playing (this is new, before it stayed on black screen and I stoped the video)...and it buffers constantly. I have this problem with 2 tv series, anything else works perfectly.

Any idea?

Thank you!

Hi.  It looks to me like mediainfo agrees with our assessment that this item is interlaced:

Scan type, store method                  : Interleaved fields

Why do you believe that it isn't?

Maybe I misread, first time I have a 1080i file, maybe that's the reason for the bad playback?

forgot to press "Attach This File" emby log attached this time

emby log.txt

Thank you!

The app tried to direct play the file, but the video player had some trouble with it and so therefore it automatically switched to transcoding with the server to help make it playable.

 

Unfortunately it appears your server just can't transcode it fast enough so that didn't go well either. Have you checked out our media conversion feature? You could use that to convert the file to a more streaming friendly format:

Please let us know if this helps. Thanks.

That means that Chromecast doesn't support 1080i?

Thank you!

 

Edit: I just saw convert is only for Emby premiere :(

Officially no, it does not support interlaced content, however, in some cases it will actually play successfully. This is unpredictable though and even when it direct plays successfully, it doesn't support any deinterlacing.

Yes we work very hard on Emby and we thank you for your support.
