Often times when I see "Reason for transcodng: Media bitrate exceeds limit." in the info I wonder, what kind of internet connection do they have?   I know this can cover multiple scenarios like bandwidth limit set for user, server, client side quality setting, as well as AUTO bandwidth detection...     Can you PLEASE add to the dashboard the returned client bandwidth capabilities?   The value you are getting from the client that tells emby its bandwidth abilities.   


While you are at it tighten up the spaces between lines on the transcode items, and align the results to the right instead of center..

x2 on this request. I would love to see that as well! Sometimes when I see a low negotiated bandwidth, I think it could be my end and I endlessly try to look into why it is occurring when it usually is the client side connection.

The more info the better on direct play/transcoding. I would like to see a pop up giving the full stats for nerds info from the client.

I just put a post in that thread as well and liked your first post. Looks like it's been out there for 2 years now though so not sure if we'll get either of these anytime soon :(
