Glad to see the move away from Mono for Synology, but I'm a bit unsure at the moment of how this is actually going to work.

 

1. Can I do an over-the-top install? I've got it installed using the previous method (v4.4.3)

2. Is the emby.media package source effectively defunct now? We should remove it from the Package Center?

3. How will updates work? Presumably not through the Package Center any more?

 

Thanks


Update: Sorry @Luke, I realise there are a load of other posts about this in the Synology forum. I guess the upshot is that when you can it would be great to have something either in this blog post or on the download page (at least the point about manually stopping it before manually installing). Thanks!

I have been experiencing what I believe is a bug ever since this update got installed on my PC. The client I use is on a 2nd Gen FireTV Stick. I had zero issues prior to the update being installed. Now if I want to launch Emby I have to go into manageEmby Server and go into devices and delete my FireTV. I have to do this every time I want to launch Emby on my FireTV Stick. Otherwise it will just get stuck on loading with the spinning icon forever.

Am I the only one experiencing this? I checked reddit as well and don't see anyone else complaining about this.

I have a Synology 218j (MARVELL Armada 385 88F6820 processor). Can anyone advise the correct download package? I would think it's one of the Armv packages? However I don't know which one.

Thanks

Not an answer to your question, but you probably shouldn't broadcast your remote access address to the internet.

Agree with this statement.

You should be able to update the server, by simply downloading the setup file from the Emby downloads section.
Just stop the server and run the setup to update.

Based on this forum posting, try disabling auto start for emby, then reboot and run the setup again.

I tried to update Emby on my Qnap to this version yesterday but after the update I was unable to access the Menu via the web browser (top left menu). Using a phone app I was able to reach the Dashboard but it said that the Emby version had not been updated. I re-installed the older version and everything went back to normal.

I tried again this afternoon and the same thing happened but I did not reinstall the older version. I rebooted the Qnap and then tried to install the new version again and everything appears to be ok.

Just adding this here in case it is useful to others who find the same issue.

Where abouts is there an install guide? I've not seen one that shows the new way of installing on Synology.
