Emby Server 3.1: Faster and Lighter than Ever Before

Luke

14316 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.

New Recording Options

 

You now have the option to preserve original video when recording.

Recording Post-Processing

 

You now have the ability to run a post-processing application after completing a recording.

Redesigned Series Recording Management

 

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

Well done! I'm debating diving in to the live tv portion of emby.  You're giving me a lot of reasons to do so.

@Grace1313 It's definitely worth a shot, it's not quite as polished as other areas of Emby but we dropped WMC a couple of months ago for Emby Live TV and we haven't looked back.

Looks interesting. Now if I could only get it to install over the old version. Just errors out.

Seems as though when you now add a new movie, it no longer tries to add a thumbnail graphic for it. One of my users prefers the thumbnail look when looking at the catalog of movies, and I actually put a little bit or work into manually adding thumbnails for those it can't find one for.. Has this feature been removed or did something break?

When I look at the folder for the movie, it shows the poster.jpg file, the movie, and the .nfo file. Nothing else. It used to show a number of things. (banner, landscape, logo, etc)

By default, most images are not downloaded until needed by an Emby app. You can change this behavior in library setup.

Even when you tell it to download every image and it is set so that images aren't downloaded in the background, it rarely downloads more than the poster and banner. Have to go in and manually download them with every new item.

Hi, is sure does, if configured to do so. If this is not happening for a specific title, then let's go over a specific example and then we can tell you why it didn't happen.

Check each library in library setup to make sure the realtime monitor is enabled for the libraries you want it to be.

Has the bug been fixed yet that suddenly appeared 6 months ago that stopped all the TV shows in the 'Upcoming' section from displaying their start time??

The times coming from tvdb are not localized and therefore not suitable for everyone. That's why they were removed. Alternative ways of supplying this are being considered. However, we hope you are enjoying all of other great things we're bringing to you.

All individual libraries are enabled. Any other suggestions?

It appears that after multiple restarts of the server, the real-time monitoring functionality is now working properly. Pardon the false flag.
