Shield TV (2019) not playing VORBIS


Recommended Posts

For some reason emby thinks VORBIS is not supported on the Shield TV. It tries to transcode (which I have disabled) so I get a stream without sound.

Logs attached.

Same file plays fine over Plex and VLC (SMB share) and in the Emby app on iOS and iPadOS.

ffmpeg-directstream-f6885c44-8f60-4c87-8420-7651618422b2_1.txt

Version used: 4.6.0.2 beta on server and AndroidTv 1.8.42g on the ShieldTV.

That confirms it isn't supported.  What happens if you enable transcoding?

It get's transcoded.

Why would VORBIS not be supported? VLC and Plex play it just fine on the same machine.

Audio support: AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, MP3, WAVE, AMR, OGG Vorbis, FLAC, PCM, WMA, WMA-Pro, WMA-Lossless, DD+ decode, Dolby Atmos decode, Dolby TrueHD (pass-through), DTS-X (pass-through), and DTS-HD (pass-through)

I think this should be a supported type that doesn't need transcoding.

That list really isn't accurate for ATV though.  It's not just what the Shield supports, but also what Exoplayer supports.  I have lots of WMA that direct plays in VLC, but Emby transcodes it because Exoplayer doesn't support WMA.  Though I see Vorbis listed in certain containers

I'm hoping the Emby version of Exoplayer will support WMA some day

Careful with "marketing specs" too ;) 

There is a difference between a .ogg audio only file and audio embedded inside other containers.  We're working on improvements in all these areas though (see above app referenced by Luke with updated Exo).
