Emby Server 4.5.3 Released


Luke

6224 views

Emby Server 4.5.3 is currently rolling out. Here are the highlights.

New Search Experience

New search for mobile and desktop layouts. Improvements over previous search:

  • There's now a Top Results section which provides a truly global search, something we didn't have before
  • You can see all the different types of items that matched the search, and filter by type
  • The type categories are now ordered by search relevance, whereas previously they were just hard-coded

Mobile version:

Download Subtitles During Video Playback

There's a new search for subtitles option in the subtitles menu of the video player:
Untitled.png

Click that and you'll get the subtitle search dialog that you're already accustomed to:

Select one to download and the dialog will close, and your new subtitles will show up immediately and also embedded into the subtitle menu:

Add to Playlists and Collections with Drag and Drop

This should make adding to collections and playlists a little more fun. You'll notice that collections and playlists are now in the sidebar:

Untitled.png

If you pin the sidebar to make it always visible, now you can drag and drop content to add them to your collections and playlists:

You can drag just about anything, from posters, to list items, to individual text links such as the artist name underneath a song:

And this will add everything for that artist.

This should help make building your holiday playlists and collections more fun than ever, and it all works with touch input as well.

Add to Play Queue with Drag and Drop

Just drag something onto the now playing bar such as a poster:

Untitled.png

As soon as you hover over, you'll see this:

Untitled.png

But you can drag logs of other things too, such as list items:

Untitled.png

Or even text links from posters or list items. For example, drag the whole item to queue that item, or drag one of the text links to queue the artist, album, etc.:

And most important of all, it works with touch input.

@Luke, is the mobile search view on the browser or the app?

I am not seeing the new search method on .64 (Emby for Android).

Had to manuallly download this update, is that correct?
Usually it just auto-updates emby server when restarting.

We only have automatic updates on windows. That will still work with this update.

Good. But we still need to update the selection by genres, it is very mixed, very confusing and too simple.

HI there, please open a new topic and describe what you mean by that. Thanks.

So studios are now searchable? I don’t see it mentioned on improvements list but I see the category tab in images...

Where is category tab for searched tags?

Okay, thanks for the info. It didn't want to update to this version automatically (after a restart) and gave me a download link, so I did it manually.
Seems to work fine anyway, but I will see what happens when the next update pops up.

To be honest, I'm in favour of manual updates these days...

...it's why I jumped ship from Plex - when one of their infamous automatic updates trashed my metadata and my files "couldn't be found"... shudder.

 With Emby, I have control back and everything is happy once again!

Autsj, that sounds annoying. Fortunately never had such issues with Emby updates myself.
On top of that I have very regular back-ups that are not reachable for Emby (backup is not on the server itself) so even if it happens I still have a backup :D

Hi, I haven't checked out your links but I would suggest opening a feature request topic with a description of what you're looking for. Thanks !
