Poor streaming quality from VLC

Hello everyone,

I have been using Emby for several months now and am having difficulty.
I decided to migrate from MiniDLNA to Emby's native DLNA, and the quality is very poor.
Do you have an idea of the configuration to adopt to solve this problem?
I am attaching you the screenshots in comparison, between the Emby web player and Emby DLNA.

Thks ^^

Thank you for your return,
I attach the logs and the captures which better present the problem.

I have this error: Error Dlna: Error creating PlayTo device.

I don't know if this is related to the problem.

Thks ^^

With the Emby DLNA in VLC:

With Emby Web in Firefox:

How about this. Please make the problem happen again, then attach all log files that were written to during the time period of the test. Thanks.

OK the log says VLC direct played the file, which means Emby served the original file as-is without any modification (transcoding).

That means I'm sorry but I don't know the answer to what your issue is. Perhaps slow network performance and it's dropping frames? I really don't know but this doesn't look like an Emby-specific question.

Hey,

I found out where the problem came from. If anyone ever meets him put the solution here.

In VLC, go to Tools > Preferences, then in Inputs/Codec tab.

Change Hardware Accelerated decoding to something other than Automatic or VDPAU.
