Hi, first time using emby. I have a Ubuntu server, the install went fine.

 

Some issue I'm having:

  1. The web app, regardless if I'm using the local site or remote one, does not see any of my chromecast devices. I've only been able to chromecast from my Android phone. I've checked on my chrome browser on both my Ubuntu machine, and my windows machine.
  2. When a try to play on my chromecast ultra, the video image is bad, but the sound is fine. Sometimes subtitles work, sometimes they don't show up at all. (See attached image "chromecast_ultra.jpg", subtitles showed up in this instance).
  3. On a standard chromecast, I can't get the subtitles to work at all. The video/audio works, but does frequent pausing when first starting the stream.

I've attached a copy of my logs. Info on the video I was trying to play:

This video works fine with Plex, including the chromecasting.

That media info looked alot better when I was editing that post.

 

Here's a screenshot instead:

I'm also having trouble with subtitles on the chromecast. They work perfectly on the smartphone or on the web, but on the chromecast it doesn't appear or it takes too long to appear.

 

Versão 4.4.2.0

checkO Servidor Emby está atualizado
