Direct Play HEVC Playback Not Smooth

Hey @@Luke so I have a 3rd HEVC file and it plays back smoothly. But the other 2 previous files are still problematic. I compared the Codec Info in VLC between the 3 files and the only thing I could see that differed is the Frame rate. The working file says 23.976023 and both non-working files say 23.976215. Does this have any relevance or is it total coincidence?

Hmm, not sure as those look basically the same. Are the bitrates similar?

Stats for Nerds is the same across all 3 files...

 

Bitrate 2.2

Video Bitrate 2.0

I have a 4th HEVC file, it also doesn't play back with the Android app. Frame rate says 23.976215

 

So the 3 files that do not work have a Frame rate of 23.976215, while the 1 file that does work has a Frame rate of 23.976023.

I am also seeing poor video playback of HEVC on Android Mobile 3.1.23 on a Huawei MediaPad M5.  This is with a data rate of under 1.5Mbps.  Playback using MX player as an external player is perfectly smooth.

I changed to External player in Emby settings and played with VLC. It plays smooth as butter. So hardware doesn't appear to be an issue.

When you play with VLC, is it hardware or software decoding? Can you find that out? Also just for testing purposes, can you install our Android TV app on the same mobile device and see how that compares? thanks.

I will check VLC when back at the shop in a couple days and report back.

Can you give me a link to the Android TV app you want me to test please and I'll download it from my Pixel 4 XL. Thanks

The Android TV app will not run on my Pixel 4 XL.

Where do I get this info? Both say "Direct Playing" in the server dashboard, however VLC plays perfect, Emby does not (even with the 3.1.24 test build).

It will be in vlc itself.

It was set to "Automatic". Just for fun I tried all 4 settings: Automatic, Disabled, Decoding Acceleration, and Full Acceleration. The HEVC files played back flawlessly with all of them.

Is there any update on this issue? I have the same with my android Xiaomi mi 9t pro and Chromecast ultra. Network quality here is above 500mbps. External players are doing fine. Even Chromecast streaming with yatse is doing fine. But not when using Emby player. Can this please be fixed?
