Playback Error No compatible streams are currently available.

Encountered this annoying error on Emby the other day. To make long story short, my root disk does not have enough space for a new file. The file in question is the transcoding files that are located in /var/lib/emby/transcoding-temp. Somehow the transcoding folder ate all the free space that my server has. My understanding is, the /var/lib/emby/transcoding-temp directory should clear automatically when the movie was stopped. However, in my case, it didn’t.

The solution is to navigate to /var/lib/emby/transcoding-temp/ and clear it then restart emby-server.service.

cd /var/lib/emby/transcoding-temp
rm -rf *.ts
systemctl restart emby-server.service

Hope this help. Cheers!
