Topic: Emby theatre support

Hello guys!

First of all, thanks for this wonderful product that svp is. I love smooth playback ;-)

You support a lot of video players and Plex is included. I don't use Plex but Emby (https://emby.media), a serious competitor.

Would like to know if its planned to support there video player (Emby Theatre) which is based on MPV in it and if yes when we'll have a tutorial like Plex to enable SVP in it.

Re: Emby theatre support

Missed this one...

0. Set the very same PATH/PYTHONPATH env variables as for Plex
1. Replace mpv.exe in %appdata%\Emby-Theater\system\x64\mpv
2. Add emby-pipe into SVP's main.setup.mpv_pipe list, restart SVP
3. Run Emby Theater, open Settings, goto Video section, set Hardware acceleration mode to Auto (copy back)

Nvm it’s working well ;-)

Re: Emby theatre support

Hi coming back,

Recently SVP failed to handle the 60 fps acceleration. It's saying it's playing in the tray icon but not mark appears at the bottom left of the screen when starting the playback and visually we see well it's not doing anything...

Can you help please?

Re: Emby theatre support

probably you updated Emby and it now uses "default" mpv w/o vaporsynth support

Re: Emby theatre support

Ok si concretely what I should change in the config IYO?

Re: Emby theatre support

I am unable to get this to work. I've followed all the instructions and have (I think) the same Emby settings as jscoys, but for me it doesn't work.

Re: Emby theatre support

I confirm the issue. We will look why it stop to work.

Re: Emby theatre support

Set Settings -> Video -> Hardware acceleration mode = Auto (copy back)

Re: Emby theatre support

Oops! Sorry, I miss this setting. I did it.
Now SVP works to me in Emby theater!
