  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

    Emby post-processing dvr script for linux

    I thought I'd post my emby post-processing dvr script. Tested and working on Debian Linux 8.9 Files processed end up being named *originalvideoname*.ts.mkv so i can search by that and make sure recordings have no issues. After I look at them, I manually rename to just .mkv. I do not have automatically convert recordings checked or the two preserve boxes checked under live tv --> settings. Script flow: see if lockfile exists. if so wait 60 sec create lockfile commerical scan and commerical cutting ccextractor to pull out closed captions and convert to srt file Encode to h264 using ffmpeg and combine in srt file from previous step Trim off first 60 sec from recording (due to iptv delay you get a minute from previous show. I have recordings set to last 1 min longer in emby record. The shows using my OTA tuners start early by 1 min to compensate) Remove srt/extra files Overwrite original ts recording delete lockfile Depends on: comskip, comcut (comchap optional), ccextractor, ffmpeg I eventually want to fool around with a nvidia gtx 1050 and see how nevnc with hevc/h265 works on the ffmpeg encoding line. Software h265 encoding on very fast saves an additional 30-40% space on same setting as h264 on medium but my encoding framerate goes from 420fps (14x) to 69fps (2.3x) on dual Xeon e5-2670s. The picture looks pretty much identical when i look at them side by side post.sh emby script #!/bin/csh set path = ($path /usr/local/bin) set lockFile = '/tmp/dvrProcessing.lock' set origFile = "$1" set tmpFile = "$1.tmp" set tmpEncode = "$1.mkv" set tmpEncode2 = "$1.2.mkv" set tmpSrt = "$1.srt" set dvrPostLog = '/path/to/embydvr/dvrProcessing.log' set dvrLockLog = '/path/to/embydvr/dvrLock.log' #Wait if post processing is already running while ( -f $lockFile ) echo "'$lockFile' exists, sleeping processing of '$origFile'" | tee $dvrLockLog sleep 60 end #Create lock file to prevent other post-processing from running simultaneously echo "Creating lock file for processing '$origFile'" | tee -a $dvrPostLog touch $lockFile #Mark and cut commercials echo "cut from '$origFile'" | tee -a $dvrPostLog /path/to/embydvr/comchap/comcut --lockfile=/tmp/comchap.lock --comskip-ini=/path/to/embydvr/comskip.ini "$origFile" #Pull CC from file to SRT file echo "Pulling Closed captions from '$origFile' to SRT file" | tee -a $dvrPostLog ccextractor "$origFile" -o "$tmpSrt" #Encode file to H.264 with mkv container using ffmpeg and mux in CC srt echo "Re-encoding '$origFile' to MKV file while adding cc data" | tee -a $dvrPostLog /usr/bin/ffmpeg -i "$origFile" -i "$tmpSrt" -map 0 -map 1 -acodec copy -scodec copy -c:v libx264 -preset medium -crf 23 -profile:v high -level 4.1 -deinterlace "$tmpEncode" #Trim off first minute echo "Remove first 60 sec of file" | tee -a $dvrPostLog /usr/bin/ffmpeg -ss 00:01:00 -i "$tmpEncode" -vcodec copy -acodec copy -scodec copy "$tmpEncode2" #Remove SRT file echo "Remove SRT file" | tee -a $dvrPostLog rm -f "$tmpSrt" #Remove tmpEncode file echo "Remove tmpEncode file" | tee -a $dvrPostLog rm -f "$tmpEncode" #Rename transcoded file to temp file in case no subtitles echo "Rename 2nd transcoded file to tmp file" | tee -a $dvrPostLog mv -f "$tmpEncode2" "$tmpFile" #Overwrite original ts file with the transcoded file echo "Removing '$origFile'" | tee -a $dvrPostLog mv -f "$tmpFile" "$origFile" #Rename .ts file to .ts.mkv echo "Renaming '$origFile' to .mkv" | tee -a $dvrPostLog mv -f "$origFile" "$1.mkv" #Remove lock file echo "Done processing '$origFile' removing lock" | tee -a $dvrPostLog rm $lockFile exit 0
  3. Hi People, I've just got into Emby and the more I use it the more I love it. I'm trying to get the folder permissions right once and for all as at the moment iàm having to run a chmod 770 on the media directory every time I add media which is not handy. I would just like all the contents to inherit the file permissions of the main directory. Now i know this may be more of a LInux OS question but I post it here as I want to make sure Emby server is happy with this level of settings. At the moment I have a Movies folder that belongs to "emby" group and "antonio" (a normal unix user that is the admin user of the emby server) is member of that group. I set the sticky bit on te "Movies" folder with: chmod g+s Movies so that I have: drwxrwsr--+ 21 antonio emby 4096 nov 10 11:50 Movies You'll see that I have access control set on this folder which I did with the following two commands: setfacl -d -m g::rwx /<directory> //set group to rwx default setfacl -d -m o::r /<directory> //set other After doing this, I created a folder in the MOvies directory via terminal mkdir Baaria (2009) So that: drwx--S---+ 2 antonio emby 4096 nov 10 11:51 Baaria (2009) and the file inside this folder: -rw------- 1 antonio antonio 2098558137 apr 15 2015 Baaria (2009).m4v When I run the getfacl command on the Movies folder, I get: # file: Movies/ # owner: antonio # group: emby # flags: -s- user::rwx group::rwx other::r-- default:user::rwx default:group::rwx default:other::r-- EMBY doesn't seem to be happy with the newly created folder permissions (see below) not quite sure why though. I'm sure this is to do with my ignorance on the unix file system management and the use of the setfacl command or maybe I'm just overcomplicating things. Any suggestions? Thanks Antonio 2015-11-10 11:51:21.0640 Error - App: Error resolving path /exports/zeusmedia/Movies/Baaria (2009) *** Error Report *** Version: 3.0.5781.0 Command line: /usr/lib/emby-server/MediaBrowser.Server.Mono.exe -programdata /var/lib/emby-server -ffmpeg /usr/bin/ffmpeg -ffprobe /usr/bin/ffprobe -restartpath /usr/lib/emby-server/restart.sh Operating system: Unix Processor count: 2 64-Bit OS: False 64-Bit Process: False Program data path: /var/lib/emby-server Mono: 4.0.3 (Stable Wed Aug 19 11:56:04 UTC 2015) Application Path: /usr/lib/emby-server/MediaBrowser.Server.Mono.exe Access to the path "/exports/zeusmedia/Movies/Baaria (2009)" is denied.

  4. 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
  6. 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
  8. 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
  9. Hi, I thought to give another try to Emby after 1 year Question: is possible to arrange Home screen ? meaning Latest TV Show Up (want to put it above Latest Movies, see picture Question: why after 1 year of absence when navigating to right and down will go as far as he can, still no fix, i posted this issue before

    How to speed up Emby on Linux

    Assuming that there is memory to spare, placing Emby's data and/or cache to RAM offers significant advantages. Even though opting for the partial route is an improvement by itself, the latter can make Emby even more responsive compared to its stock configuration. Benefits include, among others: - reduced drive read/writes; - heightened responsive feel; - many operations within Emby, such as quick search are nearly instantaneous. To do so we can make use of a tmpfs. Because data placed therein cannot survive a shutdown, a script responsible for syncing back to drive prior to system shutdown is necessary if persistence is desired. On the other hand, only relocating the cache is a quick, less inclusive solution that will slightly speed up user experience with Emby. In this post is provided an example of script to move and sync the "data" folder (where is stored the emby db) to RAM. Be sure that rsync is installed and save the "executable" script to /opt/emby-server/bin/emby-data_sync.sh, for example: #!/bin/sh # The script will first move emby's data to a new static location, # make a sub-directory in /dev/shm, softlink to it and later populate it with the contents of data. # The second time the script runs, it will then preserve the RAM profile by copying (sync) it back to disk. PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin static=data-static link=data volatile=/dev/shm/emby-data IFS= set -efu cd /var/lib/emby if [ ! -r $volatile ]; then mkdir -m0700 $volatile fi if [ "$(readlink $link)" != "$volatile" ]; then echo "--> Emby: Init RAM Disk" mv $link $static ln -s $volatile $link fi if [ -e $link/.unpacked ]; then echo "--> Emby: Sync Disk" rsync -av --delete --exclude .unpacked ./$link/ ./$static/ else echo "--> Emby: Sync RAM" rsync -av ./$static/ ./$link/ touch $link/.unpacked fi It is best to add a cron job to guarantee the sync between RAM and disk, for example the following entry will run the sync process every 30min. */30 * * * * /opt/emby-server/bin/emby-data_sync.sh Then it is necessary to change the service: /lib/systemd/system/emby-server.service to guarantee the initial and final sync, as follow: [Unit] Description=Emby Server is a personal media server with apps on just about every device. After=network.target [Service] TimeoutSec=5min EnvironmentFile=/etc/emby-server.conf WorkingDirectory=/opt/emby-server ExecStartPre=/opt/emby-server/bin/emby-data_sync.sh ExecStart=/opt/emby-server/bin/emby-server ExecStopPost=/opt/emby-server/bin/emby-data_sync.sh RestartForceExitStatus=3 User=emby [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target After this change it is necessary reload the service with the command: systemctl daemon-reload Finally it is possible to activate the shared-memory for Emby with the command systemctl restart emby-server It is possible to verify the execution of the script with the command: systemctl status emby-server ● emby-server.service - Emby Server is a personal media server with apps on just about every device.

But the main concept remain the same. On my installation I was able to speed up the "quick searches" by 100 times. This improvement is mainly due to the increase of speed obtained by moving the SQLite databases to RAM. In this article: https://www.directionsmag.com/article/3794 is reported an interesting comparison on memory access vs disk access speed and is stated that: "If you have a problem with slow database access, placing the entire database in RAM can instantly provide a factor-of-100-thousand increase in access speed with no other programming or data structure changes required".
  11. 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
  12. First, thanks for what looks to be an amazing piece of software. I've scanned in all my music and some albums have appeared correctly but others not. The common ground between all those which failed is that they are in one single parent folder (which has various artist / album folders below it). Emby seems to think that the parent folder is an album with hundreds of tracks, although Metadata Manager shows me that it has read the Album ID3 tags correctly on each individual track. Does Emby make Album objects in the library based on the tags or on the folders? My audio tracks are not quite strictly organised as artist/album/track, but the same folder structure has worked fine with many bits of software over the past ten years or so (eg. Kodi, Foobar, Logitech Media Server etc), and I would much rather not re-folder if I can avoid it. Many thanks in advance for any help. SC Platform details: HP Microserver > Ubuntu > Flac files with ID3 tags > Emby 3.0.5675.1 - let me know if you need to know anything else!
  13. I wanted to share my fail2ban configuration for people that want to protect against a brute force attack. Fail2ban is a piece of software that will monitor log files for a authentication failures then ban the source ip address after so many attempts to protect against a brute force attack. I searched around for an tutorial or how to on how to implement this for emby and came up short, so I decided to give it a try and got it to work without much trouble at all. I wouldn't consider myself an expert and this is my first how to I have every written so if I made a mistake or I'm wrong let me know, and use my instructions at your own risk. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK THIS PROBABLY WILL NOT WORK IF YOU ARE USING EMBY CONNECT I'm not using emby connect because I think it has some security problems listed here https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/80497-log-out-security-hole/ You need to install fail2ban For my setup with ubuntu 18.10 I used, (should be the same for debian but I haven't tested) sudo apt install fail2ban To get fail2ban working with emby there are two parts, filter and jail, they both have their directories (jail.d) (filter.d) in /etc/fail2ban/ cpeng@g5500:~$ cd /etc/fail2ban/ cpeng@g5500:/etc/fail2ban$ ls action.d fail2ban.conf fail2ban.d filter.d jail.conf jail.d paths-arch.conf paths-common.conf paths-debian.conf paths-opensuse.conf The jail controls what happens with an authentication error and the filter tells how to read the log to find the error. Create a filter: cpeng@g5500:/etc/fail2ban$ sudo nano filter.d/emby.conf /etc/fail2ban/filter.d/emby.conf # Fail2Ban for emby # # [Definition] failregex = AUTH-ERROR: <HOST> - Invalid user or password entered ignoreregex = EDIT: New failregex proposed (below) by @@nayr to catch 401 errors and attempts to find valid user names [Definition] failregex = AUTH-ERROR: <HOST> - Invalid user HTTP Response 401 to <HOST>. The failregex tells what the log line will have in it that designates a fail and "<HOST>" designated the actual ip address. That error looked like this: 2019-12-24 11:12:00.326 Warn HttpServer: AUTH-ERROR: - Invalid user or password entered. So I assumed that AUTH-ERROR will be unique to login errors which is why I started the filter with that. Next you have to create the jail in cpeng@g5500:/etc/fail2ban$ sudo nano jail.d/emby.local /etc/fail2ban/jail.d/emby.local [emby] enabled = true filter = emby logpath = /var/lib/emby/logs/embyserver.txt port = 80,443 I use a reverse proxy that uses ports 80,443, but if you aren't doing that then you want to block the default ports 8096,8920 The logpath may vary from distribution, you can find yours in your dashboard under paths. There are other options that you can add, my default ban time was 10 minutes and max number of retries was 5 which is default which seemed fine to me. The last thing you need to do is reload fail2ban so it re reads the files. sudo systemctl reload fail2ban Then test by entering the wrong password into emby and confirm that it blocks you. Check out the fail2ban.log at /var/log/fail2ban.log tail /var/log/fail2ban.log For testing this command might also come in handy: sudo fail2ban-client unban --all Hope this is helpful. P.S. I recently switched from plex to emby for the dvr service and so far I have been very impressed and happy with how it works. I got tired of all the bugs with plex, that would never get fixed, instead we got new "features" and new interfaces. The icing on the cake is how responsiveness the developers are on these forums.

    [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?
  15. 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?
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  20. 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.
  21. Im using Linux Ubuntu 16.04 64 bit and Asustor AS-604T ADM 3.2.1 This requires you do own a domain and have create a Lets Encrypt certificate! Following ports should be open: 80, 443, 8096 and 8920 1. Login to ADM web interface > Settings > Certificate Manager - Click on Export Certificate. 2. Extract certificate.zip and open the folder certifiate 3. right click in the folder - select open terminal 4. enter the command: * Please change the name of the give-me-a-name.pfx * After execution of this command you will be prompted to create a password, this is recommanded! openssl pkcs12 -export -out give-me-a-name.pfx -inkey ssl.key -in ssl.crt 5. Save the new create give-me-a-name.pfx file on your NAS in a shared folder of own choice 6. go to: http://local.ip.of.nas:8096/ 7. Go to Advanced and do the following Check that Allow remote connection to this Emby Server is marked. * add external domain name * Custon ssl certificate path (Click on the magnifier right to the text field and navigate to where the .pfx file is. * Certificate password - Add the password you entered after execution of step 4. * Secure connection mode - Set to preferred, but not required. 8. Hit save and navigate to Controlpanel > Restart - Now you should be able to access the Emby Media Server from outside.

    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
  23. 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?
  24. 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 ;)
  25. 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.
