Hi,

I think you actually answered your own question.  If just one series is having a problem but no other is than that series is likely at fault.  It is likely encoded improperly.

Could you post the metadata for one of the episodes?

Right off the bat I see you have 10 bit files vs 8 bit.  You also have PGSSUB subtitles.

When you're playing these back are you trying to play the subtitles or not?

Nope, that makes it simpler.

I've got the feeling it's the combination of HEVC and 10 bit files causing you an issue.  Is the device you're playing back on setup for 10 bit video?

Anyway you could upload 1 episode somewhere and send me a PM link to it?  I'd like to test a couple of things with your file if possible.

any thoughts? @vdatanet @cayars

What's the exact problem? Because according your log, episode is transcoding fine. File is correct because I can play that using Emby + Chrome.

how do i change my processing plan so it works for this? how do i make it more similar to yours?

That's automatic according your server, the only difference I see is that I'm using hardware transcoding and you use software transcoding, but your transcoding has no errors, it's seems fine.
