Issue connecting my remote emby to my firestick

Hello,

I have an issue connecting my remote emby server to my amazon firestick 4K with the emby app.

When i put it manually it tells me that there is en error connecting to the server. And when I use emby connect it tells me it can't reach the server and ask me if i want to delete it. (see screenshot, in french)

The weird thing is when that when i use any browser it works perfectly. Even with the browser on the firestick, emby connect works fine.

Any idea as to why the app doesn't connect ?

Thanks

Hi.  Are you trying to connect via https?  Do you have a valid and recognized certificate if so?

Yes i use https and my certificate is valid, works fine on any browser.

Is your server running on a Linux type OS?  If so, it is probably due to how the certificate is being delivered.  There is a post out here related to this (has to do with supplying the entire cert chain).  I'll see if I can find it...

Hi, thanks for the answer.

Yes I use the synology app with a let's encrypt pfx for the certificate.

I managed to connect my firestick using http, (not s), i can't really test for the next two weeks, but i'll look into the post you quoted to see if i can make https work.

I'll post it here if i manage to do it properly.
