  1. Hi, I had to rebuild the server that I've been running Emby on, and I'm trying to use the server configuration backup plugin to migrate everything. However, when I try to run the restore on the backup, nothing happens. In the attached log file, it looks like there is an error associated with the restore request on line 2320 and again on line 2535. Hopefully that helps identify what is wrong with my setup. Thanks, Jonathan EmbyLog.txt

    Confused by download setting

    Can someone help me understand the server-side user setting called "Allow downloading that requires transcoding"? Server > Users > {select a user} > Downloading There are two settings that can each be independently enabled/disabled per user: * Allow media downloading * Allow downloading that requires transcoding The first seems pretty self-explanatory and I have it enabled for all users. The second setting is relatively new (I don't remember seeing it before) and it confuses me. I understand what transcoding means in the context of video playback over the network, but not what it means in the context of downloading a media file. What does transcoding have to do with a file download? Any help you could give me in understanding that setting would be appreciated. The wiki doesn't show the setting (yet?).
  3. After upgrading to the latest version of Emby Server, I noticed that legends, formerly perfect, are displaying garbage characters when the letter is accented. In Brazil letters with accents are very common, so these characters in question mark format are all over the legend.

    Emby on Zorin OS?

    Apparently I am the only one who has mentioned Zorin OS. https://zorinos.com/about/ I have been thinking of perm moving to it if mediasever can be installed and ran from it. Not even sure where to post as it is Linux/Debian but made to be Windows friendly, it is now currently the #6 in branches, in first quarter this year it had half a million downloads for Zorin 12. It has the security of Linux but the features and integration of windows programs and apps. It is to me and looking as if to most others dumping garbage windows and osx OS's the go to and future go to operating system being so familiar with the two in looks but much more secure and tons faster. You can even boot into BIO's and give it a test spin before install. @@Luke has this even been tested yet also do you think compatibility already exist for installation? I did 3 forum searches and only mentions of it are 3 post in my sig

    IPTV m3u list

    Does m3u lists really work on Emby Server? I would like to test but I did not even understand which plugin I should use. My pretense is that web clients can access the tv channels from my m3u list. If there is already a topic that discusses this subject, I would like to know, because I did not find it here in the forum.

    Emby Server - New Version

    With the update of Emby Server for the new version, the "My Media" icons have been reduced, even though I use CSS to leave the size I want, it seems that the new version despises the applied CSS code. Is it possible to have the icons in the size I prefer, or will the new version no longer allow this customization?

    Cinema Mode

    Hello, maybe (not sure) a problem exists in Cinema Mode. I added a single video in the folder, to serve as an intro and set the Cinema Mode area. Everything worked fine. When adding in the same folder, the second video for the second intro, before the movie or episode starts, the intros are played three times in the sequence; 1, 2, 1. My intro files are ac3.mp4 and h264.mp4 but I would like to use generic names like intro1.mp4 and intro2.mp4, is this possible and so will the intro be played before all the movies and episodes? I would like the intro1 and intro2 to alternate with each play in the collections.

    Media ordering

    I realized these problems only in my Concerts collection. For some reason, Emby does not obey the alphabetical ordering of all Concerts. He orders a particular group and then, orders the other group in the sequence. Any tips, so that everyone is in alphabetical order? Thank you from now on.

    User control

    I did a test, changing the user login permission schedules and found that if the user tries to access outside the given times, in fact he will not succeed, however: 1. The displayed screen does not disappear when clicking the button "Done" and for this, just clicking outside the image. 2. Is it possible to use CSS code to edit the text on this screen?

    Emby Cloud

    Are we? A Special for Emby Premiere users only?
  11. I recently bought a pretty nice Android TV mini-computer. I did so with the intention of running Emby Server on it. I want to build the server here, then I plan on relocating it to a different location once it is completed and functional, along with the USB hard drives that will contain the movie files.. I am struggling to figure out how to do that... I searched the Google Playstore for "Emby Server for Android TV". It showed an app called "Emby for Android TV". I assumed it was exactly what I wanted, so I downloaded and installed the app on my new box. It installed fine, but doesn't appear to be the Emby Server, but rather an Emby client that looks for an Emby Server to connect to. Is there an actual Emby Server for Android TV application out there somewhere? I cannot find it anywhere. I also have a large Windows 10 box running Emby Server. This is my main Media PC for our home. We have 3 TV's, each with their own Kodi box accessing the Emby movie library. The actual movies are located on a NAS. I only mention this primary Emby Server because I don't want its existence to hinder the building out of the new Emby server that I'm trying to establish. Thank you for any help or guidance you can provide me...
  12. When one has Emby configured to store data in NFO files adjacent to their associated videos, and you then designate certain metadata fields to be "Locked" a XML field of <lockedfields> is added to the NFO file, containing a "|" delimited list of the metadata fields to be locked from editing. In my prior experiments I found that if I added this field to an existing NFO file (ie, one that Emby has already added data to) then Emby would read the NFO and lock the corresponding fields. I mistakenly thought then that I could add this XML field to my externally generated NFO files as part of my migration from a different media management system (my custom-built one). My hope was that Emby would take in the data from my NFO, and then subsequently lock the appropriate fields from further editing. However, <lockedfields> is being completely ignored on import, resulting in no fields being locked (though the other data, such as Tags, is correctly imported). The following is an example of the NFO file data that I'm generating: <movie><sorttitle>Voice Behind the Mouse</sorttitle><plot>Leonard Maltin interviews Wayne Allwine and Russi Taylor, the voice of Mickey and Minnie Mouse. They talk about the characteristics of Mickey and Minnie that they see in themselves. They compare how Mickey's voice changed over the years, even within Walt Disney's run of doing the voice. Allwine and Taylor consider how Walt would probably embrace new technologies of today. Allwine does most of the talking, sharing anecdotes and touching on a wide array of other subjects related to Disney animation. Taylor, his real life wife, recalls how she prepared for her Minnie audition. The feature includes some clips of "Runaway Brain", older shorts, "House of Mouse", and even the costumed Mickey Mouse at Disney's parks, as well. It's a great supplement - both very informative and entertaining.</plot><lockedfields>Overview|Tags</lockedfields><tag>Shorts</tag><tag>Disney</tag><tag>Mickey Mouse</tag><tag/></movie> http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0408316/ Please pardon the formatting -- it seemed best to present it exactly as I'm generating it from my other program.

  13. Somewhat related to the Bulk Edit of Metadata feature request ( https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/42975-bulk-edit-metadata/ ), I'd love to be able to specify a different Metadata Provider on a per-metadata basis. My desire for this comes from learning of the tradeoffs between the two main providers, OMDB and TMDB, as talked about in this thread ( https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/43818-three-genre-limit/&do=findComment&comment=409723 ), which indicates that OMDB tends to have user-preferred Ratings data, while TMDB tends to provide more Genres (OMDB apparently just provides the first 3). So, it would be nifty if I could set my default Metadata Provider as OMDB, but override that to be TMDB for something Genres (or any other piece of metadata). Then I'd get the best of both worlds. Edit: Wanted to clarify that upon further investigation it seems it isn't clear cut which provider lists more Genres. OMDB seems to cap it a 3, but that doesn't guarantee that other providers will actually have more Genres listed. I still think this Feature Request has merit (as the Genre thing was just an example), but wanted to clarify my misinformation from above.

  14. Sony TV has automatically updated to KODI 17. For some reason TV shows are not merging together in my kodi library on this tv although series are appearing merged in emby server and on my other android tv running kodi 16.1. In my TV library on the emby server I have a path directed to files on a mycloud and a local file path on the computer. I have reinstalled emby add on in KODI 17 but no luck. Although I can still access everything, it is annoying that a TV show is showing up twice with different episodes. Any ideas for what to do next? I'm a bit stumped.
  15. Been having trouble lately getting my library scan to complete in a timely fashion. Noticed massive amounts of errors related to the ombd api. Tried going to their website and found they are getting hammered with a DDOS attack and they are aware of the errors (503). Just an FYI if you have been having trouble with library scans related to this.
  16. What happend? I updated Emby to 3.1.5 (skipped .4). I don't think this has anything to do with the problem I'm having right now. Fiddled around with my PC Restarted my PC (did not yet restart Emby) I noticed Emby did not auto start. Browsed to the AppData folder. A manual start resulted in a popup, screenshot attached. Tried to be smart and download the latest Emby release from the website, assuming it would fix the issue. I did not and Emby started fresh without my configuration. I removed %/System and replaced it with %/System(.old -removed) Same popup. Please help. I'll monitor this post in order to responded quickly. Thank you Attached; Popup, logs I think the most interesting log is to large, 300MB.., attached the last 3 and will c/v a small piece of the 'to large' log.

    Emby Sever metadata

    Hi Guys, Few question i have about the Emby server setup i have searched the forums for and cant find a definitive answer and was wondering if you guys can lead me in the correct path. Does moving the metadata location to folders have a performance hit? the reason i am asking is i copy movies to my hard drive for the shack that has no internet so just need the metadata etc. If so, does it populate actor images as well into each folder, assuming yes you will end up with 200 of the rocks face. on the above two questions does Emby still use the central cache folder in the c:\users\app... as thats on a SSD and assume would make it all run faster if it used that copy. All going well all my collections are setup as e:\tv1 d:\tv2 etc even with follow control of the folders of the local user emby wont write the metadata to them, do they need to be shared as \\tv1 \\tv2 for this function to work. thanks for looking over this Cheers R
  19. So I now have all these new, multi-color boxes around my thumbnails on my home screen... How do I get rid of/hide these, as they are very unappealing to me. I have looked around for a bit now and have not been able to find an option to turn them off. Thanks!

    Blurry playback

    Hi, Trying to watch a movie on Emby Server and the playback is very blurry. The file is a HD file at almost 4GB. Selecting quality during playback is set at 1080p-60Mbps. Usually in quality setting it says 'Direct'. Any help on how to fix this? Emby Server V. Chrome V.55.0.2883.87 Thanks, Server-6361840000.txt
  21. Hi, I'm running Emby Server on a Raspberry Pi3 with OSCM. I was able to get it installed and running by following these instructions: https://github.com/d...mc_install_emby And by accessing the url I added my OSMC library (drive connected to Pi3) perfectly. The problem is when I hit play nothing happens, both on browser and on the iOS app. I get a "loading" circle on the screen that disappears after 4 seconds but no playback and no error message. Bellow are the logs. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks Log_2.txt Log.txt
  22. I could swear I saw a post similar to this recently but now I can't find it.... I'm in the midst of transitioning my library of movies, etc. into Emby and so I'm doing a lot of testing with NFO files and how Emby reads them, etc. It would be really useful during this period if there were a way to tell Emby to Re-Read a given NFO file (and pull in any new or changed data). Currently I have to remove the folder, restart Emby and then re-add the folder to get Emby to re-read the file(s), which is a bit of a pain. However, I realize that what I'm desiring here is not something that one would use often (I will probably very seldom use it once I get everything transitioned), and is a potentially dangerous feature because a user could overwrite data within Emby with old data in the NFO if they're not careful (so clear language and warnings are probably a good idea). So I'd be fine with this being some sort of Advanced or Hidden setting or something. Or if there's already a way to do this I'd be grateful to know that.

    Login disclaimer popup

    I'm upgrading my network to fiber, my IP will change and there for user will have to receive a new Emby login IP, directing them to my Emby Server. I was wondering if it would be possible to make the Login disclaimer popup to notify my server user that a change is imminent. Other suggestion and experiences regarding this 'issue' are welcome. It's probably not a real issue, just users ignoring anything that doesn't popup in their face ;-)

    Missing Episodes not showing

    Hi, Hope everybody is having a fab XMAS this year....I have a slight issue. When I go to TV Shows>Episodes and change the filter to show 'Missing Episodes', it shows nothing. I know that I am missing episodes of a few series but it comes up blank. Any clues as to what I should do or if an update is needed. P.S. After updating to V. today, the XMAS snow theme disappeared. Thanks. Server-63618009284.txt
