EDIT: The invalid password error is actually caused by something wrong with the router not allowing the clients to connect to the emby server properly.
I'm having two separate issues with Emby right now.
I'll preface this by noting that I've just migrated to running on openmediavault and getting everything to work on my server's specific hardware was very stressful. At this point with Emby not working and everything being fine before, I'm considering just rolling back to Windows 10 and leaving my system that way, as much as I don't want to.
First issue: Out of nowhere, Emby just logged me out on all devices and when I try to log in again, it says invalid password. I know the password is typed correctly. I just logged in to my TV maybe not even 5 minutes before this happened.
When I try to reset the password, I enter the username on the reset page. When I click submit nothing happens.
Second issue: When trying to playback a specific movie on any device, the server's CPU hits 100%. (old Xeon transcoding at 3 fps) Looking under stats, it says the reason for transcoding is the subtitles aren't supported. They should be supported, doesnt the web browser app work with all formats? I don't understand why that would need transcoding. What is the technical explanation for this? Aren't most subtitles just a text file that plays on top of the video? Is there a way to get subtitles working without transcoding?
On my TV the movie plays with subtitles disabled, but my Windows desktop Nevermind, I just learned that Firefox doesn't plan to support H265 HEVC (why?). I guess I'll download Emby theater
Also I don't have an Emby Premier subscription so I don't know why it would even try to transcode. My server can't handle transcoding 4K? Is there a way to just turn transcoding off and give an error message instead?
Edit: Wrong section, intended to post this in Linux server.
