Hello everybody, 

 

since I started using Emby (2-3 months now), I've never been able to play my ALAC/m4a hires audio files. Every time I try to play a file, the "no compatible streams" error comes up. This happens on macOS version of Emby (last update), on the webOS version, but it doesn't happen on my iOS device. Think I've read any thread on the matter, to no avail. 

 

Thanks for any help on this

Hi @Luke

 

I'm using Chrome (last update) on macOS 10.15.4.

That's good news Luke, thank you. I suppose I'll have to wait for an update to see this solved, right?

Yes.

 

Hi @Luke, just wanted to let you know that with last Emby update everything is working fine. Thank you so much! 
P.s. a great feature for those who like me are using Emby with hi-res audio files would be hog mode (also called exclusive mode): in this way you can control external DACs directly. Idk, maybe you will give this a shot  ;)
