  1. When I first open the app (on android tv) I can see my media and then I see the different DVD covers that have already been scanned in. In the picture below you can see the categories and they show up.But when I go click on any of my media categories I can get TV shows to load infect it’s very quick. The error comes when I click on movies or classic movies it just sits and spins and says that error above. When I had just classic movies it loaded just fine but when I started having the other category of movies now neither open without error. However when I view it on the web through a web browser or on the server I can see it just fine. I did reboot the server. I’m running a remote server. App is android TV version 2.0.79 server is version 4.7.6. running Linux CPU dual AMD EPYC 7702 Drives are NVME Samsung MZQL23T8HCLS-00A07
  2. When I click 'Save' Button, the problem will occur.(Picture 1) But When I return to the user page, it seems that it has been created successfully. Also, I can log in with this 'Ghost User'. However I cant edit any settings of this user, there is no any new user in /config/user, user.db in /data wasnt updated. Restarting emby and vps has been tried but doesnt work. Anyone know how to deal with it plz?

    HTTPS 8920 internal not running

    Hi @Luke I am running emby server on Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS. Not sure when this stopped working as I mainly access my server locally via http but setup HTTPS on port 8920 behind HAProxy and was working fine. I saw an error no backend to emby in HAProxy so investigated and indeed I cannot access the server at all on https. If I curl from the emby server I get this error curl: (7) Failed to connect to localhost port 8920: Connection refused
  4. On Arch Linux, Emby is using a basic ffmpeg by default. Now we have started publishing an Arch Linux package which allows easy installation of the same ffmpeg that is included in most of our other server installation packages and which is optimized for tone mapping, hardware acceleration and a number of other things in combination with Emby Server. Installation Download first to avoid signature issues, then install via pacman: wget https://mediabrowser.github.io/embytools/emby-ffmpeg-bin-2022_05_07-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst sudo pacman -U emby-ffmpeg-bin-2022_05_07-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst Please restart Emby server after installation: systemctl restart emby-server.service

    TrueNas - File

    So today i tried setting up my Emby instance and it didnt went well... I am using truenas scale and emby inside a application (kubernetes + docker i think) and the files are softlinked to a directory inside emby from my smb share, they show up, but not inside emby thats the weird thing. With ls /home/movies everything shows up but inside emby when i triy to add the library nothing shows up. I also put the files there with FTP and then it worked but i want to be able to just drag and drop them from my smb to emby. Thanks in advance! :D (The pictures are inside the pod shell and the video is the "setup" shown, sry for german words and smth like that) 2022-06-24_18-42-43.mkv

    [Possible Bug] Can not invite users

    Hello, I can no longer invite users, when I click add user Emby Server does not bring up the dialog to Add Local User or Invite with Emby Connect. Has Emby Connect or inviting been removed again?
  7. I have an Ubuntu server running the emby server docker container. Just spun it up yesterday. My password worked no problem. Today, I tried to log in through firefox on another linux machine, and my password doesn't seem to be working. So I decided to try resetting my admin/user account password by clicking the "Forgot Password" button. When I clicked the button, it prompts me for a username. When I type the username and then hit "Submit", nothing at all seems to happen. What can I do to troubleshoot this further so I can get access to my media server again?
  8. Hello everyone Last Friday I restarted my Docker Emby container on Unraid. I lost all my libraries. I had the "Server Configuration Backup" extension, but no restore worked. I was using this Emby package, so I thought that this one had a problem. So I installed a new package at the end of the day. Everything was working until today when I had no cover image on my libraries. I restarted my container, and I lost all my containers. I also tried a restore but nothing worked. Also, it deleted my old Emby log files... However, I found an error in the little log file : When I look in my system, all the metadatas are deleted... ! Do you know can i fix it and restore my metadas ? Thanks a lot embyserver-63765654731.txt
  9. Hi, And thanks for this software. Right now I'm running emby server (premiere) on synology app (NAS is a 918+) ; client is installed on a first generation nvidia shield . All is connected via ethernet. Sometimes (rarely to be frank, very rarely) I got stuttering, mainly x or h265 files. I get two months ago a second hand elitedesk G4 mini (UHD Graphics 630) and installed linux (ubuntu 20.04 server) to run some valheim, minecraft and conan exiles servers via docker. And I wonder if using an emby container on this linux computer would improve performances. CPU is way better in the G4 than in the NAS. RAM is the same, 32Go. I have several questions, having close to none tech skill. 1- In my current setup (syno server to shield), which is "decoding" the stream ? NAS is decoding, and shield just have to display ? Shield is decoding, NAS being just providing the files for the shield to decode ? 2- In my current setup, is there some tips I should use to improve streaming ? 3- In my current setup, should I check somewhere if some sort of hardware acceleration is activated ? On the NAS ? The Shield ? 4- Would using linux server as a host for an emby container, NAS only for storage and the shield as a client improve the experience ? Once again thanks for the program, and the forum. I have a lot of informations available should I install emby docker on linux... Regards, F.
  10. I am using docker, i have the exact same set up with jellyfin, i just wanted to try emby as they have apps for my lg tv. If i go into my docker containers cli i can see all the films and tv shows, they just don't appear in my movie or tv show library on the emby gui when i have scanned them, the path is exactly the same as my existing jellyfin docker which works without issue.

    Question About My Firefox Installation

    Hello all! I noticed this morning an issue with some movies on Firefox, I can't skip of fast forward them from Chrome on Linux. After some investigation, I noticed that it happens with movies that gets converted to VPX codec by the server. If I watch the movies from the Android app, it works just fine as the server delivers it in h264. It also works just fine with Chrome based browser (as it doesn't use that VPX codec). Here is what I tried: Disabled subtitles Metadata refresh Changed resolution Disabled HTTP/2 & CSP Restarted Emby Server No matter what I tried, it is still being delivered to my Chrome client in VPX and I think that is the issue. It is happening on all the files with a "Container not supported". Server config: Emby in docker I attached logs of the same movie played in Emby for Android and Emby Web with debugging turned on. I also attached screenshots of the "Stats for nerds" on that same movie for both clients. Thanks! transcode_emby_android.txt transcode_chrome-linux.txt
  12. Hi I have a USB drive containing my music library (mostly mp3) attached to my router, and created a share on the router. I have installed Emby Server on my laptop so I can pick up streams from my TV and other devices, at least that was my hope. In the server web interface I have added the library and it has catalogued all folders and tracks. It will not play anything in the web interface giving me the error On my TV, again I can browse the folder structure but when I try to play a track I get a network error message. On VLC on my phone, I get an error message. Thee is a DLNA server on the router and this gives me the catalogue AND I can play the music files on my TV and phone. It has a file limitation however which is why I looked to use EMBY. Now, please be gentle - I have no idea what the f*** I'm doing most of the time so hand-holding is required. I have searched and seen this message has been encountered before but on NAS drives etc. I know it's similar but ... It may be a permissions thing but I don't know. Thanks in advance.
  13. Hi, I am trying to give Emby access to my external drive on Raspbian. I've searched a lot of different things and have used chmod and chown to try and give it permissions, but to no avail. I am a Linux noob so this is somewhat difficult for me. When I try to add a library from the external drive, I go to the directory that has it, but it's blank. Any help?

    emby shutting down alone

    I have been using emby on my Linux server for a while now, version is shutting down the emby program alone, it only deactivates it, I don’t know what’s going on previous versions didn’t happen this the server is Linux is is updating
  15. With the new Emby server release, I see that there are two options for each hardware encoder/decoder now: the existing VA-API one and a new QuickSync one. My Emby Server runs directly in Debian on a Pentium Gold G5420, identified as Coffee Lake (gen9.5). So what's the difference? Which one is preferred, and why? (Technical details welcome.) Is this an "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" case or a "try it and see what works better/faster" deal? TIA
  16. Hello I've been testing the linux server and while Emby is great it seems to lack some basic functionality that other software has. First off, the Now Playing screen should have a quick hot link in the left pane to avoid navigation confusion. There is lot's of clicking involved in Emby to find things and to get the logical view of things. Navigation UI improvements could be done to streamline the experience. There is no shuffle option on the Now Playing nor is there a randomise order or remove duplicates option for the play queue. It would be useful to be able to manage the play queue more during playback. Auto tagging is a loose cannon. Seriously the feature is a mess maker. I have music in thematic folders which contain artists and so on. Emby sees the top folder as an album and desperately tries to name it despite it not being one. This causes chaos in tags. There should be an option to tag a folder as a folder not a metadata "object" and leave it alone. Images - uh this just does not work well at all, images keep changing on their own, reverting back to what they were and just a global mess really. Artwork does not really load from the web either despite plugins present. I have to do a lot of manual image uploading. There should also be an option to edit images in several files at once with the multiselect file option. Subtitles - a simple option to browse and load srt would be spot on, having to manually edit each subtitle file name is silly. Web streaming - a Youtube / web link plugin would be nice. Not to mention hooking up Netflix and so. Dashboard - continue listening does not load at all as a section Overall kudos for the work guys but still lot's to do. Given the lack of these major features for me I won't be buying the license until there is some further improvements as the product seems incomplete. The inability to test the apps before purchasing the license is also a bit unfair, how can I make a purchase if I haven't seen the whole product? A 1 week trial would suffice. Now que on backlash from my post ;)
  17. Hi, I am in the process of a full library scan, and I see the following errors appear in the server logs repeatedly. System.Exception: ffprobe failed for file... streams and format are both null and [matroska,webm @ 0xebdc00] Format matroska,webm detected only with low score of 1, misdetection possible!

    Emby Won't Start

    Hi guys ! I've just made a little mistake but i don't know what. I tried to make a backup with the plugin but it's always resume with an error so to see what's going on i tried to check logs but my logs wasn't updated 'till a long time so like a genius (lol) i did a "rm -r /var/lib/emby/logs" then "mkdir /var/lib/emby/logs". Big mistake because it removed all my logs cool but won't create logs. I tried to restart emby with "service emby-server restart" but it's resume with an error : ● emby-server.service - Emby Server is a personal media server with apps on just about every device.

  19. Hello Community, I was hoping someone else is having a similar problem and perhaps know the reason why after the second to last update of Emby, my collections vanished (both user created, and those generated by the box set plugin). At first I thought it had to be ownership/permissions had become muddled, but all other writes are allowed (updates to metadata, metadata refreshes on intervals, favourites) Here is a breakdown of my formerly working setup: Emby running on Docker - app folder in home directory to utilize the SSD benefit. OS: Fedora 33 - kept up to date daily Docker image is from Linuxserver.io (I chose that image to keep things in line with my other services, and ease of setup Permissions are defined in the docker-compose file for PGID:1000 (logged user) and GUID:973 (docker) however i've also tried chowning the permissions to 1000:1000 in both the .yaml file and filesystem in keeping with linuxserver.io's standard setups.. No joy as of yet.. I'm copying a backup of the emby appdata folder to backup in an attempt to start fresh, if that doesn't work i'll restore and hope that either emby, or the image provider figures it out. One thing worth noting, while I can't make a collection, the Boxset plugin CAN, and I can add and remove from them, if I try to create my own it circles out. I'd really prefer to keep my watched status. not so much for me, but my elderly parents (also my main reason for fighting with collections, so I can narrow down content for them) so I was wondering if the community can : 1) Diagnose what might have happened to either the config or the docker image (last two versions, first time lost all collections, I tried backing up the collections folder and starting new, no joy. or 2) If I create a new instance, which folders to keep so my 2 users keep their watched status. I don't mind rescanning metadata and tailoring the layout again. Any help would be appreciated, I hope I gave the community enough information, so as to not waste your time. Thank You, Ray.
  20. Hello When I try to add a path on an external hard disk, it does not appear in the library section, but I can access it through the file browser on the system. attention: I am using raspberry pi OS. thank you.
  21. Inspired by this article on how to host a website using cloudflare and nginx, i intend to do the same for my emby server. Like swynol, i have nginx server and emby server running on the very same machine which i station on my local home network. My OS however is ubuntu instead of windows. Ive tried both swynol's and lukecarrier's github codes, no avail, it wont redirect to the emby server no matter what. My nginx server was indeed running as both ports 80 and 443 are opened as tested by canyouseeme.org. It just wont redirect whenever i go to https://emby.mydomainname.com I dont even know where should i put the code, of the guides online, some say /etc/nginx/conf.d/mydomain.com, some say /etc/nginx/sites-available/mydomain.com with /etc/nginx/sites-enabled linked to earlier. I highly suspect that the code is the culprit. sudo nginx -t show no error, systemctl status nginx operational Shed some light anyone? Appreciate it. Update 16/12/2020 Here's my nginx code where I put under sites-available and then linked to sites-enabled via ln -s server { listen [::]:80; ## Listens on port 80 IPv6 listen 80; ## Listens on port 80 IPv4 listen [::]:443 ssl http2; ## Listens on port 443 IPv6 with http2 and ssl enabled listen 443 ssl http2; ## Listens on port 443 IPv4 with http2 and ssl enabled proxy_buffering off; ## Sends data as fast as it can not buffering large chunks. server_name emby.mydomainname.com; ## enter your service name and domain name here access_log /var/log/nginx/embyaccess.log; ## Creates a log file with this name and the log info above. ## SSL SETTINGS ## ssl_session_timeout 30m; ssl_protocols TLSv1.2 TLSv1.1 TLSv1; ssl_certificate /etc/ssl/mydomainname/cert.pem; ## Location of your public ssl_certificate_key /etc/ssl/mydomainname/key.pem; ## Location of your private PEM file. ssl_client_certificate /etc/ssl/mydomainname/cloudflare.crt; ##Authenticated Origin Pulls ssl_verify_client on; ##Authenticated Origin Pulls ssl_session_cache shared:SSL:10m; location ^~ /swagger { ## Disables access to swagger interface return 404; } location / { proxy_pass http://localhost:8096; ## Enter the IP here proxy_hide_header X-Powered-By; ## Hides nginx server version from bad guys. proxy_set_header Range $http_range; ## Allows specific chunks of a file to be requested. proxy_set_header If-Range $http_if_range; ## Allows specific chunks of a file to be requested. #proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr; ## Passes the real client IP to the backend server. proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $http_CF_Connecting_IP; ## if you use cloudflare un-comment this line and comment out above line. proxy_set_header Host $host; ## Passes the requested domain name to the backend server. proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for; ## Adds forwarded IP to the list of IPs that were forwarded to the backend server. ## ADDITIONAL SECURITY SETTINGS ## ## Optional settings to improve security ## ## add these after you have completed your testing and ssl setup ## ## NOTICE: For the Strict-Transport-Security setting below, I would recommend ramping up to this value ## ## See https://hstspreload.org/ read through the "Deployment Recommendations" section first! ## add_header 'Referrer-Policy' 'origin-when-cross-origin'; add_header Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=15552000; preload" always; add_header X-Frame-Options "SAMEORIGIN" always; add_header X-Content-Type-Options "nosniff" always; add_header X-XSS-Protection "1; mode=block" always; ## WEBSOCKET SETTINGS ## Used to pass two way real time info to and from emby and the client. proxy_http_version 1.1; proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade; proxy_set_header Connection $http_connection; } } Big thanks to @pir8radio for the configuration, my configuration is based on his.

  22. Hello Folks, After the success of getting a count of the current NowPlayingItem entries in the Sessions API, I am now trying to get a list of the Users and what they are currently playing - then send that to my InfluxDB to show in my Grafana server. I am nearly there with this command line, but cannot quite get it so that JQ only shows those session users who are actually playing something... wget -q -O - "http://localhost:8096/emby/Sessions?api_key=3469exxxxxxxxxxxxxxx201ef3f" | jq -M '.[].UserName, .[].NowPlayingItem.Name' will show me the following... null "Paul" "Tracey" "Sam" "Tom" "Katie" null "The Secret of the Unicorn (1)" null null null null ...which is every possible user. In the above example, only user "Paul" is actually playing ""The Secret of the Unicorn (1)". If I add the JQ options to now show 'nulls'... wget -q -O - "http://localhost:8096/emby/Sessions?api_key=3469exxxxxxxxxxxxxxx201ef3f" | jq -M '.[].UserName, .[].NowPlayingItem.Name | select(. != null)' then I can get it to this output... "Paul" "Tracey" "Sam" "Tom" "Katie" "The Secret of the Unicorn (1)" ...which is correct but still shows me users that are not playing anything at that time! Does anyone have knowledge of JSON and JQ or the API so that I can just get a list of those users that are playing an item now. I would be happy with this output... "Paul" "The Secret of the Unicorn (1)" ...or even better - turn it in to a key + value pair like this... { "Paul": "The Secret of the Unicorn (1)" } ...so that I can send that to a bash script and then to my InfluxDB. Thanks in advance! Regards, Paully

    Optimizing scanning Library

    Hey guys, Been using emby on Linux for quite some time now. However after a new install on a clean machine, while importing my existing files. I encountered some performance issues. After looking at it it seems the library scanning process only will utilize 1 core at a time. The ffmpeg process that is forked for the chapter images is explicitly started with -threads 1. Is there any option to increase that ? Or is it limited that way due to locking issues ? On current systems it would speed up these processes quite a lot if multiple threads where forked. Even if ffmpeg was only forked with -threads 1 it would be possible to start multiple ffmpeg's for multiple media files. Also it looks like the chapter imaging task limits emby from doing other tasks (like re-importing the .nfo files I have for every media file). Are there any parameters that can be used to force emby to multi-thread some processes or is this currently not possible ?

    Thinking of changing OS to MAC

    So I have been thinking for awhile of changing my Servers OS to MAC. This is mostly due to the intrusive updates that are forced on us Windows10 Users and the bloatware that is constantly being reinstalled by these forced updates. Like xbox gamebar, etc and several others. I did figure out that by using Shell i can remove a lot of these programs I dont want or use but whenever their is an update these programs are forced back onto my PC using Data, which is expensive nowadays, and disc space which I like to keep clear for my needs not Microsofts attempt to get me to use programs I have ZERO interest in. EDGE is a huge irrigation as well. I remove it and it comes right back. Its as if Microsoft somehow knows I just shelled the hell out of their bloatware and they want it back on ASAP. Im beginning to think Windows OS is more or less spyware now as the years go by. I used to love Microsoft. But that has all changed and it wasnt a sudden distaste either. To to put insult to injury they pin that crap to my Desktop as to say, HEY BUDDY! Heres your internet browser you need to use! Serious BS. Also the new GET HELP for Windows10 infuriates me and I like the old troubleshooter. But it is either gone or buried in the OS some place. Also I find it funny that on the Microsoft help sites you have all these people saying that the majority of these programs cant be removed and are hard coded into the OS and they have to be there for it to work. This is an obvious plow to get people to keep programs on their PC that Microsoft gets paid to put on them. Really they are just trying to discourage people with misinformation. I read about a registry hack that can stop the updates but that was a couple of years ago someone had posted that and if I was terrible company like Microsoft Id patch that out as soon possible because, darn it your gonna get force fed the updates whether you want them or not. I hate companies like this. The only option is to postpone updates for a a week at which time they will force update you. I have read that MAC does not do this to its users. If so thats wonderful. Some of the best news Ive read all day. My server is a big part of my life and I use it constantly so the fewer issues I have obviously the better. Im just sick of Microsoft and need some good advice. Other considerations are of course just going to Linux Mint or something similar. I run KALI on my Chromebook so I am familiar with the struggles of changing an OS and how difficult it can be. Course Chromebook is a bit extreme considering the length at which you have to go to to get the darn OS on a system that doesnt like you doing that sort of thing and fights you the whole way lol. I do enjoy UNIX based OS though as Im an old IDX/IBM/DOS guy. I dont use the PC for gaming, I have another one for that, or anything else really. Mostly I just keep it running just for the server. So an OS that is light on the resource consumption is something I thought about a lot. Microsoft is not like this especially when the Antimalware crap decides to bog down the PC even though I already have a dedicated antivirus and dont need or want their default crap. All this said i would very much like to hear from the community about their thoughts and experiences with MAC OS as I worry about any compatibility issues from switching I might have. Cheers
