nicolahinssen: Same playback error. Do you need more logs?

[edit] SMPlayer plays all of the files that emby won't. Cross-checking the emby-server-beta dependencies with the list of packages that updated, they only have aom & sqlite in common.

[2nd edit] Tried downgrading sqlite; no change. Downgraded aom from 2.0.0-1 to 1.0.0) and everything is playing properly again.

[third edit] "This bug report on ffmpeg makes it clear they forgot to update the bin references for libaom to v2: Doing downgrade aom back before v2.0.0 fixes that ffprobe issue, but the main issue still stands."

Okay I'm not really sure what's happening here. Could you first try removing all files in /var/lib/emby/cache/ffmpeg, and afterwards restart emby with sudo systemctl restart emby-server.service

@nicolahinssen It's going to be one of these packages: (I tried updating everything BUT ffmpeg and x265, but still got lots of playback errors, so it must be another package?)

Here's the log: Here's an ffmpeg log:

I'll take a look later on. Can you send me the logs? (Upload them on i.e. pastebin)

Anyone else having a lot of playback errors after a system update on 6/9/20? I started a thread over at the Emby Community (which is down at the moment for maintenance). The dev thought that, based on what he saw in the emby.log, that it might be something that would have to be addressed by the package maintainer over here. I'll post a link to the thread when I can.

Hello in the search to see from Manjaro ArchLinux emby media that was not for Kodi search and search and find one in .deb I could build it manually to .pkg.tar.zs and it worked perfectly although with a disadvantage it only works for accounts Emby Premiere.

I would like to share it but I do not know how to upload it to this medium if someone could explain or share a link to a video on how to share said emby media file?

At the same time ask if they know of any package that does not have this restriction to view content other than Kodi? Thank you

Thanks! I wasn't expecting a response that fast. :D Everything is good now.

Been a couple years since I've seen this one. Cannot upgrade to .30 because of netcore zip.
