Playback via external player always plays 1080p version


Recommended Posts

Emby: 2.00.10g 

Device: Nvidia Shield 2017

KODi: 19.0


because of the feature request I posted yesterday: 

I tried to get around the problem by using KODi as a external player and use it's local audio transcoding capabilities to get the result I wanted. 

It works but Emby always sends the 1080p version to be played back to KODi.

BTW:  This is working now for me in the latest beta 2.0.12   Tested with VLC as an external player and it sent the correct version of the film where it wasn't working properly before the update

From release notes:


  • Send proper version info to external player
