Emby Server 3.1: Faster and Lighter than Ever Before

Posted by Luke , 29 December 2016 · 14249 views

A new release of Emby Server is currently rolling out. This new release has a lot of important bug fixes, as well as new features. It's also much faster than ever before and we think you're going to enjoy that. Let's go over the highlights.

 

New Levels of Performance

 

This release of Emby Server is faster than you've ever seen it. All areas will be improved including the following:

  • Faster browsing performance in all apps
  • Faster library scans
  • Faster scheduled tasks
  • For those running the Kodi sync plugin, the sync process will be faster as well
  • Faster playback start time
IPv6 now Supported on All Operating Systems

 

On Linux, this will require the mono 4.6 run time, which our Linux packages now ship with. This also requires that IPv6 be supported by the host operating system (Unraid for example does not support IPv6).

 

Subtitle Encoding Improvements

 

Several issues have been resolved related to subtitle encoding and display of special characters.

 

Separate Latest Media By Library

 

On the web app home screen, you'll now see separate rows of latest media for each library. On touch devices these rows can be swiped horizontally. This puts more content right at your fingertips.

Refreshed Detail Screen

 

It's now more consistent with our other apps, and makes better use of screen real estate.

More Live TV Seeking Support

 

Seeking Live TV is now supported in the web app in mobile Edge and Safari for Mac. This now brings the roster of supported browsers to:

  • Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Opera
  • Edge on all Windows 10 devices
  • All other Chromium based browsers (like Vivaldi).
  • Safari on Mac
Better Recording Schedule Images

 

The recording schedule screens will now make better use of images, making your DVR more fun than ever before.

The same great features, but now they look better than ever before.

Xml TV Movie Prefix Support

 

If your xml tv data applies prefixes to your movies, you can now specify this on the xml tv setup screen. This will allow Emby to better handle the prefix in relation to displaying the content and searching for internet metadata.

 

Other Improvements

  • New web app design for movies and tv by genre
  • Update tv guide presentation
  • Automatically adjust scheduled recordings to program changes
  • Reduce resource consumption used by device discovery
  • Remove audio channel count from web app transcoding conditions
  • Improve image & subtitle extraction
  • Update to 3.15.2
  • Update dlna music views
  • Improve m3u channel name parsing
  • Add guide auto-refresh
  • Display series images on episode detail screen when episodes have no images
  • Improve consistency of web app detail screen with Emby Theater
  • Improve automatic network switching from mobile web app
  • Move book support into Emby core
  • Support resuming audio books
  • Add per-library series pooling setting
  • Shorten episode display numbers
  • Improve Dlna Play To device detection
Bug Fixes
  • Resolve vaapi mpeg4 transcoding failure
  • Remove condition preventing video stream copy with Apple TV
  • Resolve display issue on dlna profile screen
  • Resolve music brainz provider issue causing the library scan to get stuck in certain situations

Thankyou, Thankyou and Thankyou !

 

Hopefully IOS and Android sync isnt too far off :)

 

Awesome job on the update

Good job, thx so much

Is there a way to customise the new front home screen, to perhaps change the order of the new media?  IE movies first and then TV shows or similar?

Can you summarize what contributed to the perfomance gain? Curious from a .NET developer's perspective...

Can you confirm that Scheduled Series Recordings now require a Emby Premier account? Did I miss this in the announcement?

 

*Note* - Disregard, my mistake. I guess DVR was a premier function for some time. I had paid for a couple months to gain emby theatre but after testing it just doesn't run well on my NUC and I stopped my subscription. I wasn't aware that it also gave me the DVR functionality...

We thank you for your support.

Primarily database improvements, not quite as much on the .NET side of things.

Hi Luke,

 

Great job for this update !

 

I would like to know if I update my server, my old path substitution will be still up or not?

 

I use the old system of path substitution (with a ftp server).

 

Thank you.

 

Yes it will.
