Emby server become unresponsive


Recommended Posts



I'm watching more livetv these days and emby server become unresponsive maybe once every day or two.  It happens only when I watch livetv (chase play), when I'm watching a recording in progress.  The client stop with a little message like "stream unavailable" and the server webui is not accessible anymore.  To get it back, I need to log on my ubuntu server terminal, stop emby-server service and start it again.


From the logs, it looks like ffprobe is throwing errors in a loop.  The first Error report is this:


System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception (24): Too many open files


I attached a partial logs file.


Here the info about the server:

Intel nuc i5 8th gen with 8GB ram running ubuntu server 18.04 LTS.

Emby server

HDHomerun Quatro

Client: Nvidia shield with emby beta client.


Thank you for your help.

@@rouq are you still running into this?

Well, I restart emby server daily now (not the computer, only emby server via the admin panel).  Since I do that, I do not experience it.
