    Music Recently Played Groups

    This may sound a little nit-picky, but hey, if we can't be nit-picky when we're trapped at home with extra free time, when can we ? I was just curious if there might be a solution already available that I'm not seeing. When I browse to my Emby Music Library, the "recently played" tracks appear individually. I suppose these days nobody listens to full albums anymore, so I might be identifying a problem that doesn't exist for many folks.... but I'd find this area a heckuva lot more useful if it grouped tracks from the same album together. Is there a setting for that somewhere? Maybe what I'm looking for is something more like 'recently played artists' or 'recently played albums'. Does that make sense? Thanks!
  2. Seems like this gets brought up a lot and there doesn't seem to be a step by step guide, so I'm asking again. I just set up Emby to handle music files only (any other setup tips would be welcome) and had it sort through the library, it's been a few days since then and it's still not displaying embedded artwork, so I don't know if I missed a setting somewhere or not. So to go through the motions, here's my step by step. I've manually combed through all of my music with MusicBrainz Picard and mp3tag. I have correct tags for everything, and most importantly, correct album cover art. On a different thread I read that there might be some confusion between id3v1 and id3v2.3, but looking in the extended tags in mp3tag, there's nothing with duplicates that should cause any confusion. I'm pretty sure I have Picard set to erase all the metadata and only rewrite it with new values, so v1 and v2.3 should be identical for everything, and was for the few albums I checked. Installed Emby, a crucial step. When setting up the music library, I turned off all metadata providers. The library settings, with the advanced options, only has real time monitoring enabled. Everything else is unticked, with "Automatically refresh metadata from the internet" set to Never. Library scan. No or incorrect artwork shown. For having the metadata and all providers disabled, it's still finding a few album covers, which are noticeably different from the embedded files, and mp3tag only shows the single image I've put in. Did I miss something? There's no obvious tick box in the library setup saying "Read embedded metadata"
  3. Hi, I'm often playing shuffled libs quietly & continuously in the background while working - and annoyingly it stops every now & then. I usually run a browser ( eg chromium / chrome ) as emby client - the server is running in docker. Today I was annoyed enough to take a closer look On this occasion I found it to be reproducible for all songs in an album (all flac). Browsewr UI pops up a window with 'Playback error - No compatible streams are currently available. Please try again or contact your system administrator for details.' Browser console shows 204 & 206 Status with msg: playing url: playbackmanager.js?v= Active player: {"name":"Web Audio Player","id":"htmlaudioplayer","playerName":"Web Audio Player","playableMediaTypes":["Audio"],"isLocalPlayer":true,"supportedCommands":["GoHome","GoToSettings","VolumeUp","VolumeDown","Mute","Unmute","ToggleMute","SetVolume","SetAudioStreamIndex","SetSubtitleStreamIndex","SetMaxStreamingBitrate","DisplayContent","GoToSearch","DisplayMessage","SetRepeatMode","PlayMediaSource","PlayTrailers","ToggleFullscreen"]} playbackmanager.js?v= playbackmanager playback error type: mediadecodeerror I believe this corresponds to the following in the server logs: 2020-04-28 20:30:41.306 Info MediaInfoService: User policy for Fred. EnableAudioPlaybackTranscoding: True 2020-04-28 20:30:41.387 Info HttpServer: HTTP POST UserAgent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Ubuntu Chromium/80.0.3987.163 Chrome/80.0.3987.163 Safari/537.36 2020-04-28 20:30:41.389 Info SessionManager: Playback start reported by app Emby Web playing Have You Come To Stay.

Using metaflac I saw the file contains 4 blocks: Block#0 STREAMINFO Block#1 PICTURE Block#2 VORBIS_COMMENT Block#3 PADDING Trying various combinations of removing meta data, I found that deletion of the image fixes the issue: metaflac --remove --block-number=1 Test.flac That removes the block without the --dont-use-padding option - ie the image space is padded and the file is the same size before & after the command. I attach Test.flac before block removal. Is this likely a browser issue or something that can be handled in emby? cheers, ff Test.flac.gz embyserver.txt.gz

    Play/Pause for Music

    Hi, I'm using the Emby Theater for Windows. I love it. Only gripe is regarding the ability to Pause Music. Videos work perfectly, using a keyboard if I press Play/Pause then the movie pauses, and starts playing again. When I'm playing music if I press Play/Pause then it restarts playing the current song and deletes all others from the queue. If I use the mouse to hit the pause button then it works as expected. Could you plesae make a modification to make the Play/Pause in Music function the same as with Videos? I'm hoping to introduce Emby to our customer base and this is the main flaw. Thanks, Steve

    More of this

    I've been looking into the "More of this" shown on music artists' page. It seems the list is composed by artists from same genres. I wonder if a real improvement would be if they were a selection from the ones who actually took part on tracks or albuns from the artist being shown. That would be a very nice improvement to show real related music artists.

    Remix Artists

    Hello, it would be great to have the option of adding Remix-Artists like Beatport handels this. Then it would be possible to list the Remixes of Artists under the artists page and not only the originals. Best regards, Phil
  7. In terms of the music section, I have a couple of ideas for Suggestions Latest Music - Can we have this open in it's own page so instead of just scrolling left and right it will act like favourite songs and open up it's own page so we can see more of what's added in terms of latest music. I add a ton of albums often and there is only so many you can see when scrolling right before it cuts off. Recently Played - Just like the favourite songs it's own page i can view a lot more recently played and go back further than just scrolling left and right Frequently played - You guessed it, it's own page so i can see a lot more frequently played music Favourite albums - This would be great to see my top 20/40/50/100 albums that i go to often so i don't have to go searching when it doesn't show up in frequently or recently played. ----------- Other ideas Random Album - A way you can ask Emby to pick a random album out of your huge collection and play it for you, would work well for me having thousands of album some i don't often play so would be nice to just let Emby decide an album for me.
  8. I listen to a lot of electronic/dance music, and there's a lot of cases where multiple musicians may collaborate on a song. Likewise I have purchased a number of compilation albums where a specific musician may only contribute one or two songs out of a dozen or more. I'd like to be able to view all the songs I have in my library that were made by/involved a specific artist. However, if I go to an artist page, I only get a list of albums that they were involved in, even though 90% of the songs in some of the albums have nothing to do with them. Would it be possible to add a view somewhere (such as on the artist info page) that will allow showing all the songs in a library made by that specific artist?
  9. Everything else is being matched fine, but with music it's a big hit and miss. Most of the artists in my library got identified, but only ~50% of them have pictures downloaded for them. I downloaded Last.fm hoping it could help and logged in in case it would be needed, but that didn't help at all. I set last.fm as the highest in library settings. For example "Alstroemeria Records" has 8 photos listed in last.fm-s page yet Emby found 0. Also how to I merge artists? Plex has a option for it (Select couple, then merge under options). Is there an alternative in emby, would help to clean up a lot of them. My folder structure is basic: A:\music\artist\album\song.mp3 https://imgur.com/a/SfQyeTa Thanks

    Now playing on Home screen

    AndroidTV app presents a "now playing" section on Home screen. What follows are feedback about it. 1) Music info display (seems to be a bug) When reaching home screen after casting a "play queue" from Emby's Android smartphone app, one shall see the following: When reaching home screen after issuing a "direct play" command using actual TV remote, thus starting a playing queue, one shall see the following: Please note first image has some very good nerd info on the music (encoding & channels) and one info which I think is from the music album: the year. So it seems there occurs something different which causes Emby to show these additional info. As a means to help tackle the issue, I noticed these additional info will also be shown on the second scenario after pressing the screenshot button on my remote. But the info will be shown just for the highlited track. 2) Actual music info (not exactly a bug – more kind of feature request) When considering image 1 above, it occurs to me that: - Music title is shown twice (below screen header and below music thumbnail) - Though I see the year, I have no idea about what music album contains that track - I also see one info (when current queue will it end) that relates to queue rather than to track. So, I would suggest: - keeping Year and including AlbumTitle, AlbumArtist & Genre; - including track's date added, playcount & bitrate. Moving queue's ending time info to the right side of the "Now playing" ("Reproduzindo") header. It could provide duration besides ending time. Actually I wonder if this info hasn't been there on a recent past. Yes, I understand resulting screen would be heavy loaded. But I am confident developer team has both talent and criteria to reach to the best design and what info would be relevant. 3) Behavior (not exactly bug – more kind of user experience standards/expectations) Pressin "Ok" on track thumbs will present a contextual menu which has two versions. This is current track's contextual menu: This is other tracks' contextual menu: I think both the menu mechanism and options offered seems to be ok. Problem is, though, when you reach to the actual "Now playing" screen where: - There are no track's contextual menu; - There are no means to remove a track from the queue. In fact the newly redesigned "Now Playing" screen offer no pressing on tracks thumbs. Now, I know there was a debate about this screen and developer team made serious efforts to redesign it. No mistake: I like the visual. But it lacks some functionality like excluding a track from queue among others such as order editing. I have other comments about the outcome from the redesign but not only this is not this post's subject but also… Well, I think it's suffice to say the current "Now playing" screen lacks information actually presented on Home screen "Now playing" section. Please let me know if a thorough "Now playing" analysis would be of any help. Keep the brilliant work! Wish good health to all the community.

    Music background display

    Hi all I've had a search for this on here and can't find anything specific that relates to my question.... When playing music in Theatre (Windows 10) and I display the album art as shown, there's often a backdrop behind the album art (in this case Johan Johansson, or at least, the top of his head!). I'd like an option to turn this background off, as when the album art sits over it and crops the image it looks very odd to my eyes. Switching off the 'enable backdrops' in preferences doesn't alter it. Am I missing something? Thanks in advance.... J
  12. Would be nice if both Libraries match with artist name. I tried to link them with Collections but I had to add music albums one by one, if I grab the music artist to Collections nothing happens... Automatic join by album artist name please.
  13. Hello, first thank you for the great work for Emby. I have few questions for music metadata. It seem that music don't use ID3 tags of my music files (FLAC). In the interface, for "Album Artist" and "Artists", I see artists that don't exist in my tags. A concret exemple : album "Live from Mars" from "Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals" : I have tagged the album with "Ben Harper" for Artist and Artist Album but in metadata data I see "Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals". You can see screen catures if it's not clear. I have other album of Ben Harper so I see two entries in the Web UI with Ben Harper and "Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals". I use MusicBrainz Picard for tagging so I've information from MusicBrainz like Emby. Same problem for a lot of other album... So how I can use my ID3 Tags Artists and Album Artist to organise my Music library, specialy the Album Artist en Artists menu in the Web UI ? How can I use my tag for metadata in Emby ? Thank you for your help. PS: Plz excuse my english.
  14. This topic regards the Album Artist screen - not the Artist screen. There is no "Appears On" the Album Artist screen. "Appears On" is the section shown on the web app containing music where a given artist has taken part but it is not the Album Artist: it is only a music Artist.
  15. This topic regards the Artist screen - not the Album Artist screen. There are no album or music shown on the Artist screen. In the cases where an artist is also an album artist, Emby AndroidTV app correctly shows that artist's albums. It seems no sense as there exists other screen (Album Artist) that shows this exact info.

    Does Emby iOS stream dsd music directly?

    I want to know if the iOS app convert dsd file when streaming. I want to make my synology nas a lossless music center by Emby. I have many flac and dsd files in my disk. I don’t want to transcode or something. Thank you.

    Music Collections

    So I started trying to use Emby's Collections feature. Emby's WebApp interface allows building collections containing movies, entire tv series, a season of a tv series, episodes, artists and music albums, tracks... It seems any media item can be included on a collection if you press the "more" menu. Resulting collections can, thus, contain various kinds of media items. When navigating throughout the interface, though, only movie libraries will present "Collections" as submenu. Should I stick to movies on a collection? Is it ok to create music album collections? Is there a reason why there is no "Collections" item on music library submenus?
  18. I'd be grade to have an option to minimize artist description because they can end up pretty big as you can see.

    More Like This (Music albums)

    Is there any means by which we can define a music album metadata in such a way that the section "More Like This" will include specific albums? Let's say some tracks from album A were rearranged and released on album B and I would like that, when presenting album A, Emby would always list album B on the "More Like This" section. Is it possible? If so, how?

    Music: Now playing on AndroidMobile

    Many, many thanks to everybody involved on the new AndroidMobile now playing screen. Having all track artists listed and linked to their pages is an awesome feature. I really can't say how grateful I am. Hope this will spam to all other now playing apps. You are the best

  22. Hi, I've got a suggestion for the music player interface. Once the background art work comes on, I think it would be nice to have the option to have the cover art still displayed, perhaps as a thumbnail in the lower left area. I like the clean appearance, but having a quick visual reference from the cover art would be nice. I also think that having the option to have the audio format of the track displayed would be nice. I know you would want to make sure it doesn't create a lot of clutter, but knowing that a track is a FLAC 96/24 5.1 surround mix, versus a 44.1/16 Stereo file would be nice. Related to this, I spent the last weekend getting Jellyfin up and running to see if there were any advantages with that system. For me there are too many issues with the Android client for me to use it. But one thing I did notice was that Jellyfin was A LOT BETTER at finding artist information. For my collection, both Plex and Jellyfin found more artist information than Emby right off the bat with no particular input from me. None of them were 100% since my collection is pretty eclectic, but the difference was notable. Steve
  23. So this is weirding me out.... I'm building a separate library for my classical music. Since I'm quite picky about my tags I unchecked all 'downloaders' and 'fetchers' under the advanced settings of the library (musicbrainz, last.fm etc) Workflow: Remove all tags using MP3Tag (FLAC files) The composer goes in Album Artist, and the performing artist(s) go in 'Artist', with multiple artists deliniated by a semicolon (. fill all other tags move files to library on filesystem (ubuntu server, all files have 775 permission, just to be sure) scan files This seems to work fine, but the artist 'The Tallis Scholars' gets changed to 'Thomas Tallis' on all 4 albums I have of them. It doens't happen with any other artist so far. All other tags are read correctly. No musicbrainz IDs are visible in metadata editor and changing metadata manually per song isn't working. What do you specifically need to help me diagnose and solve this problem?
  24. Whenever I select a track, it plays, but never advances to the next track. If I select play on an album or playlist, it plays the first track and stops. My files are all in FLAC if that's pertinent. Happens regardless of local wifi, remote wifi, or mobile network. Web client via mobile Safari doesn't have this issue, nor do any desktop browsers. iPhone 5S, iOS 9.3.3 App v1.2.1, but this has been happening for a few months now
