I am new to Emby Developer API. While going through the Developer API Wiki on GitHub I got following doubts. Please help me in understanding these topics. The API key authentication is not linked to a specific user. So when using API key authentication how can I browse the whole library of the Emby server as all the APIs related to browsing library requires a user id? I can get list of all users on the server using /Users API. But then how to decide which user id to use for browsing library? This is crucial as every user might not have access to every type of media. How to connect to server as a client and create a session? As my application is sending API requests to Emby server, as per the terminology my application becomes a client. But how can I create a session for my application so that other clients know about it? What is Emby Server DLNA client? When I fetch sessions controllable by a specific user I get two sessions. First is of my browser from which I am accessing Emby server hosted in my machine. And second one is Emby Server DLNA Client. I would like to know what is this second session for? I have Emby server hosted in my local machine and I am using API key authentication for making API requests. Thanks for help in advance.
I have my media in a read-only folder... and it is named correctly, but emby seems to think it can look up the metadata and it fails. eg, Marvel_The_Avengers_3D => SAW 3D. Is there a way to say "just show me the filesystem for this library"?
Hi, What I loved most on MB classic, was the easy option to categorize movies by simply using folder structures into collections. This feature seem to be available in the new MB server and MB Theater. This is what I did. I made two main folders for movies on a disk with subfolders which contain the actual movie, like this: Movies |----> Trainspotting |----> Trainspotting.mkv Movies for Children |----> The lion King |----> The Lion king.mkv In MB server, in the Media Library, I added two media folders "Movies" and "Movies for Children" and added the corresponding folders in to them. The both get the type 'Movies'. The I start MB Theater, I see the the 'Movies' category, and when I select it I see both movies. So far so good. But, in MB Theater I want to see a 'Movies' and a 'Movies for Children' category. So in MB server, I select 'Browse media' where I have the option to edit 'My views'. In My views I unselect 'Movies' and 'movies for children' and click ok. Then I return to the homepage of MB server, And I see the two new categories. If I open them, I see the correct movies: 'Trainspotting ' in Movies, 'The Lion King' in Movies for children. So far so good. The I start MB Theater. In MB Theater, I als see the two new Categories 'Movies' And 'Movies for Children'. I select 'Movies' and I see Trainspotting. Good! Then I Click 'Movies for children' and I see... Trainspotting too??? And where is 'The Lion King'? Can't find The Lion King.... Is there somebody else who ha experienced this problem? If so, is this a bug? Or did I do something wrong?
