  1. Ability to enable or disable: FOLDERS UPCOMING TRAILERS SUGGESTIONS FAVOURITES on the top menu bar AND change the menu ordering of the options around to admin or user choice.
  2. Hi The Emby server is showing a folders view in Movies with the Android app but with the LG TV app this is not an option. Is this a known problem or have I misconfigured something. Thanks for your help John
  3. I have a folder for Movies which is the only folder in a library called "All movies." This library has metadata scanning turned on. Under the Movies directory, I have a subfolder called "New" which I have a separate library pointed to (library is named New). Folder structure: -Movies ----New ----A ----B ----C etc. Library setup: All movies > "Movies directory" New > "New directory" Nothing is showing up in the New library. Can a file only exist in a single library?

    live tv

    hello guys, is there a way to add category for live tv, i dont want to have 2000 channels, i would like to break them by categories, example, sports, news, soaps, etc...
  5. Hello fellow Emby enthusiasts, I have just recognized that several media files have been deleted from the server. It is not just a database/scanning issue, the actual folders where this media files have been in, are gone. I just found out about the deletion because the collection folder had some movies in it which are not present under the corresponding folders. The media harddrive is raid protected, a manual deletion can be excluded also. - Can you guys think of any other possibility which may randomly deleting media folders? - The option to allow deletion which can be done in user settings, could that have been it maybe? ... and if yes, is there a log which can be searched for this event - and what string should be looked for? EDIT: searched the logs and couldnt find any deletion - but have to say logs go only back for a couple of days and the deletion could have very well happened several month ago. Thanks. Soki EDIT: just allowed media deletion for a test account and i was not able to delete any file under any section. Therefor I assume another situation must have caused the deletions.

    Remote User related questions

    I am playing around with using my Emby to replace the "file share" i had setup via my router and a usb stick. Have 2 questions: 1. Is there a way to hide the default icons called "Collections" and "Folders"? I don't see an option to hide those selections in the User Access settings. I just want only the Folder and certain other Library Folders i create or select to show. 2. Is there a way to have a remote user upload a file to the Emby server? Is this a feature/plugin that could be added in the future? Thanks.

    Movie Subfolders not discovered

    After I gave up and uninstalled everything and then reinstalled so I could see the files from within emby client I discovered that it is not seeing any files that are in subfolders. The movies "2001: A Space Odyssey", "2010", "Dune", "Theory of Everything", and "Twelfth Night or What You Will" do not show up in the library while the other movies do. If I move the files from the subfolder into the main Movies folder it then discovers it and lists them in the library. All the files and folders have the same owner and rights. Before the update I was able to see all of the movies even when they were in subfolders. Then after the update I couldn't see anything. Now after deleted everything and reinstalling I cannot get movies that are in subfolders. I wanted to put each in a subfolder so I could add special features like subtitles. Leason I am learning: don't do the upgrade?
  8. Hello. I am a new user and this is my first post in the forum. I've read https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/674-media-files-folders-structure/ , nevertheless I'd like to keep my movies directory structure as it always was: /movies/<director>/<year>-<name>-<other info>. Is there any way to pass this structure as an option or hint to the database scraper with variable substitutions like %D %y %n, etc? If this was asked before please reply with a link to the post. Thank you

    Emby on Roku not seeing things right

    I hope this is the right forum for this issue. I'm having trouble getting Emby to see things correctly. For instance, it sees the White album, it sees the first cd of 25 Blues Masters, but it doesn't see the rest of the Blues Masters cds, and makes just silly additions to the playlist tree. The ripping program recognized the series of CDs during the rip, and suggested appropriate (used) folder names. My HDD: \Music \Blues Masters \cd1 \cd2 \cd3 \cd4 Emby: Music 25 Blues Masters 25 Blues Masters Vol. 1 J. Reed (from a totally seperate folder!) Beathovan (from a totally different - everything!) I used a professional CD ripper to do this. I successfully ripped the White Album this way and it works perfectly. Emby lists 30 songs in one directory with the folder structure: \Beatles \Disk 1 \Disk 2 Can anyone explain what's going wrong? Since it all works on tags, and the tags were all present in the ripping, where's the error? Thanks.

    How to "folder"?

    ​Hi I added my media folder with mixed content. The server scanned and finished it all. I also enabled the "folders" in the dashboard. When I go through the "folders" window to access my content via folder structure, I see that not all folders are really folders. After couple folders down it shows all the videos in the folder which is like hundreds of media. THey are shown as "episodes" (browsing via Folders) and they are normaly sitting inside other folders in that folder. So my question is about how to really organize around folders to make sure I can browse the folder hierarchy properly. As of now, whatever I tried did not work and after couple folders down in the hierarchy the idea of folder browsing breaksdown and Emby just shows everything in those folders recursively which is what I do not want. I am thinking that this must be a bug because why is showing "episodes" while I am browsing them through Folders. ​ thanks
  11. Long-ish question, *hopefully* easy answer: I recently upgraded from several external hard drives to a QNAP NAS. After testing the QNAP Emby app server performance, I preferred the old Windows-based server overall and thus the new QNAP is purely operating as the NAS, not the server (hence this forum). That being said... Similar to a question I had awhile back here, after changing my library media folders to the new NAS folders, I am again having difficulty saving metadata into local media folders (rather than in a generic "metadata" folder in the server files). When I add new content, the metadata is successfully being saved somewhere else (unknown location, log attached, tried to refresh "The Accountant" movie metadata). Not only do I instead want the metadata saved in the media folders, but wherever it's actually being saved is seemingly eating up scarce storage on my OS/server hard drive (small SSD). According to QNAP, I have enabled permissions for 'everyone' (see attached Capture #1) for my media content. Windows, however, is much more challenging as to confirming these network folder permissions. Unlike when using my external hard drives and simply assigning 'everyone' full R/W permissions through Windows Explorer and then applying these changes, Windows won't let me change these same settings for the QNAP folders, apparently giving full deference to QNAP's security settings and not allowing me to make any changes within Windows; I have navigated everywhere in the Windows folder permission settings and any changes I try simply won't stick, instead reverting to QNAP's overriding "special permissions" (see Capture #2). How do I get metadata to save directly in the media folders of the NAS? Thanks in advance for any input! server-63624863086.txt
  12. Hi everyone, Just curious if anyone knows of a plugin or a way to hide certain folders at the home screen. I like / need the folders view. If there's a way to drop a user into that on home screen that would be ideal. And then if there was a way to hide the collections group then I'd have the setup I'm after. I have a folder with a whole bunch of kids shows and viewing it in folder mode things look beautiful. Unfortunately when the kids login to emby they get to the home screen and don't realize they should click the folders button. They just click on the kids shows media folder and then it just looks like an unorganized mess and they don't want to use it. If there was a way I could setup a macro or something so that when my kid's user ID logs in it takes them to the folders view immediately that's what I'm after. If anyone can think of way to accomplish something like that I'd love to hear your ideas.
  13. Hey Guys, I am new to Theater. See attachment. I have episodes showing outside the folder structure. Not sure why because physically they are not. Is it possible to create a theme for Theater like the chocolate theme in Emby for WMC? If so, how difficult would it be? Any pointers? I can see Radeon has created some themes but is it not possible to see screenshots of them before purchasing? Cheers
  14. This is just a quick heads up: I have the Movie and TV Theme Song/Video plugins, and I found that if movies weren't in their own respective folders, things like themes and backdrops were shared between items. For instance, all of my films had the backdrop for "The Sword in the Stone (1963)" before I moved my media into individual folders. After the move I had to rescan the library. In the absence of those plugins, if media was not using individual folders, I observed that each asset (like posters, etc.) had the film name/year prepended which works fine until you use plugins like the ones mentioned above. Is it considered a best practice to put media in their own respective folders? If not, why not? If it is, is that mentioned somewhere in the documentation? Going to the "Movie naming" page on Github doesn't mention that when you are preparing your library, you may want to do use individual folders to ensure a smooth transition.

    Direct Folder/Files Access

    It would be really nice if we could have direct folder access to our media. Sometimes Emby doesn't detect files correctly and they dont show properly, or they are identified incorrectly. I dont realize this until the last second (when I/other users are about to watch the episode). If there was an option to show users the media library folders in a file explorer-like format, this situation would be easily bypassed. Originally, this is what I thought the "Folders" view would have done. I would greatly appreciate this, and I'm sure it would be useful to others as well. I hope it won't be difficult or take much time. If you have any questions regarding specifics, don't hesitate to ask. Thanks!

    Hi Guys, How can I remove the upcoming TV folders from each of my folders on my server? I have looked in the settings but can't see anything to uncheck.

    Folder view gone?

    Sorry if this has been discussed before already but I couldn't find anything specific to my issue. So for years, I've been using MB/Emby to navigate through my movies in the "Folders" view without any issues. I organize files by genre folders that I designate which look like this: It has always worked great and used it on multiple clients on WMC, Android, Web, etc. Recently, however (maybe 2 or 3 server versions ago), that view has disappeared. I still see the "Folders" menu item in all 3 clients, but when you go into it, it simply displays the movies in the same view as if you had clicked on "Movies" instead of "Folders". For example: Why is this gone all of a sudden when it was working perfectly for so long? thanks!
  18. Hey Guys, I have an unwatched folder suddenly appeared in my series tv folder. Is this because of a recent update? I have my folders setup in Legacy mode and have checked settings but could not find anything. I have attached a screenshot. Cheers

    Roku Media Selection

    Hi. New to Emby. I installed this server controller so I could view my media, Photos, Videos and Music. In setting up media locations, I only find ability to load single files not folders and subfolders. I have thousands, no, tens of thousands of photos, videos and music albums. How do I set it up so it will read entire parent folders, rather than having to add one file at a time? It would take literally months of adding one file at a time for every photo, song, or video file. Other apps allow folders, and reads all content in sub folders below it but I do not find this option in the dashboard. Anyone know if this can be done? Otherwise this setup was all in vain! Thanks ~FR

    Can't add media library folders

    I just installed Emby on a fresh copy of Ubuntu 12.04, did the wizard and everything. But i can't add any folders to the media library.

  21. Just started using EMBY and am loving it. Trying to set up a library for my daughter so I can add the folder for specific shows I want her to see. But it doesn't appear the work.I set the content type to "TV", then... If i add this folder it works, trouble is she gets to see ALL the shows and season in the subsequent sub-folder: \\myserver\Videos\TV If I add this folder, doesn't work (i.e no shows or seasons appear): \\myserver\Videos\TV\Glee Is there something that I need to do in EMBY or do I need to change the file structure of my server and remove one level ? Thanks Stephen
  22. Not sure if anyone will know an answer to this. I have a folder that has many films in it. When I view these movies on the PS4 or PS3 many of them show up in the movies folder with a poster to identify them. Others show up in another sub folder, and if I click in those, then I see the poster. Problem is, alphabetically, the folders show up first, throwing off the order. Any idea why some movies are put in a subfolder? They are not in subfolders on the hard drive. Could it be because some are a different file format? When I view titles on the Roku, this isn't a problem, only on DNLA. Thanks in advance!

    Square Question - Folders

    I like the old way of presenting your media, where the folders where you had content sorted was the view you saw when you entered EMBY. So for example, I have Videos, TV, Movies, Music Videos and Children. That is what I want to see when I go into EMBY and when I go into my Movies view. However, I am seeing something different both when I start EMBY and when I go into Movies. the Movies one is more bothersome as I just want the list of my movies at that point, but it sorts them by putting folders with Genre, Collections, and two other folders. I can't seem to undo this.

    Folders in Kodi

    Is it possible to have folders setup in Kodi like WMC? For instance in WMC I am using the legacy folder setup so that I can create my own folders and place in it what I want.
  25. I store all my movies in genre folders and i'd love it if it was possible to automatically set the ONLY genre for each movie to be the same as the folder name it lives in.. EG.. Horror\Movie.mkv would have a SINGLE genre of Horror I know it's a big ask and probably a very singular instance.. but if anyone can think of a way to do this automatically, even as a scheduled once a day task to sort them out, it would be fantastic!
