Re: some test videos doesnt show up in servio

When videos don't appear, that is usually because Serviio is unable to determine if the file is playable by that device. Dolby Vision test files are particularly difficult for it to determine. I have downloaded two DV test files, and only one of them appears in Serviio when using any of my DV-capable playing devices: Roku Ultra, Nvidia Shield and LG Nano85 TV. Both are MP4 files, but for whatever reason only one will show. They both appear in MediaBrowser, which means Serviio recognizes them as a playable video. But when browsing with my DV players one is hidden.

You didn't state what player you are using, nor what profile is assigned in the Serviio console to that player. It might make a difference.

LG NANO85 4K TV, Samsung JU7100 4K TV, Sony BDP-S3500, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Insignia Roku TV, Roku Ultra, Premiere and Stick, Nvidia Shield, Yamaha RX-V583 AVR.
Primary server: Intel i5-6400, 8 gig ram, Windows 10 Pro, 22 TB hard drive space | Test server Windows 10 Pro, AMD Phenom II X4 965, 8 gig ram
