    Multiple sort capabilities

    Will Emby get the capability of multiple filters? Let's say that I want to see my music library A-Z by artist name then by release date. Currently in 4.0, it shows this: Has there been any thoughts or requests to do more sort capabilities than only one option? Thanks.
  2. Hi, Trying not to post something that's been covered elsewhere but I'm not finding this specific issue... See screenshot below from the web app. Each track is by a different artist, but one can't tell which artist goes with which track. The artist grouping at the top seems to be alpha sorted by first name. If I select "edit metadata" for any one track, the artist for that track is shown (see second screenshot), but that's not really a solution to have to "edit" a track to see a basic piece of info. I'm counting "artist" as "basic info" I haven't checked android (or any other) native app to see if this is different there. Not sure if this is a bug or a feature request. thanks!
  3. I think it would be great to be able to excude artist in Music. The main reason is for soundtracks. I want the metadata to still have all the artist so when I play my music the artist shows up, but I don't want those artist to populate in my Artist section. It is messy and annoying. When I go into my NFO file and remove the artist data then set the NFO file to read-only, and lock the data to prevent future changes in the emby server, it still replaces the file and I'm back to square one. Using version Thanks.
  4. I am running Version beta on Qnap. After loading my music into Emby, no alum art or metadata is shown. All of the files have been tagged with MusicBrainz Picard and are in m4a format. Here is a sample file: https://www.mediafire.com/file/ld9ekvqxh4ybd71/01_Arabian_Nights.m4a/file Why do I not see any metadata or album art?

    Music Library w/ Audio books flickering

    I recently installed the Emby server on my Windows 7 PC and have set up a Music library under which I have placed my audio book folders (all MP3 Audio files within their own folders). I use a Roku 2 to access Emby via the app from the Roku store. I can access and play the audio via the Roku, but when I do press play the background flickers between black, a rainbow color, and transitions between some combination of the two. All media on the screen appears and disappears, including but not limited to: buttons for Play and Stop, all images, and the entire Now Playing section at the bottom. When I back out of the Music library the images at my Home Screen continue to appear and disappear, and the background continues its psychedelic dance. My Windows 7 doesn't have this problem. Is this a known bug or did I set up my audio books incorrectly?
  6. hey so i noticed that in most streaming sites like Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play Music it has a small "E" icon (see images) by the album name and some songs marking if they are explicit. I was wondering if this feature could be added to Emby. Like either you mark it manually or the metadata scraper automatically adds it. This would help when knowing what songs might not be safe to play at all places and this could be an option when it comes to parental controls. Like if you don't want your kid or a user to listen explicit music then you'd be able to check not to allow explicit music. Anyway is there a way to add this?

    Songs no longer in order

    I use Emby Theater a lot to play music in my home. One to three weeks ago (not exactly sure when) album tracks no longer appeared in the right order; track 1 first, next track 2, then track 3, etc... At first, if I hit "play all" when I was viewing the whole album the tracks would play in the correct order. Now if I do that, Emby will just play in a random order. Because this started happening a few weeks ago I thought I might be because of a recent update to the Emby Theater. So, I installed 3.0.5, 3.0.3, and 3.0.2 on a different computer and it's doing the same thing. If I use the web client or the Android app everything is how it should be. Since there haven't been any Server updates lately I can't help but think that I changed something but for the life of me I can't figure out what. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Question about my library scan

    Hi, I am trying Emby for the first time (been using Plex for a long time) and I have a problem with my music. Emby doesn't correctly recognize my folders. While both Plex and Emby mention that the right naming convention for the folders should be ../Artist/Album/## - TrackName , Plex has always been quite flexible. In fact, I prefer to keep my album folders sorted by year (../Artist/YYYY - Album Name/## - Trackname) Plex recognizes this structure, but I seem to be unable to achieve the same with Emby. Am I doing something wrong or is it just not possible to have this flexibility? Thank you
  9. Hi, I'm running Emby for Windows When casting to a Samsung TV (model is UN40J5500AGXZD) by means of DLNA only first track is played. This occurs using both on web and Android apps. Please consider this is a Brazilian instalation, thus there is no Emby app for Samsung TV available. There is also another (somewhat older) DLNA issue that it would be very much of use to address as Samsung displays are very popular here. Should I include a server log?
  10. Hi guys, I'm new to Emby. I notice something I never seen elsewhere on any music apps. You put the content on multiple page instead of one? Is there a reason for that? My personal opinion is to have my complete library when it come to artists...

    Chromecast Now Playing list

    Very excited looking forward to the future new Emby release. I sense there will be major improvements. One issue long waited is the means to see and/or edit Chromecast now playing music list. Will it be available on this next release?

    Is Emby supposed to grab images from theaudiodb? It does not show their images when I open the artist, choose "Edit images" and search for cover or background images. Is there a configuration? Thanks in advance
  13. IMO this would greatly improve the music library. I already have all metadata properly tagged with musicbrainz picard and unfortunately my emby library is nowhere near as cleanly presented as Kodi/Subsonic libraries. Currently - I have tons of one-off featured artists that have little to no presence in the music industry showing up under the album artists/artists headings within the music section. this is the only thing that stops me from using the emby music library at the moment. thank you for considering.

    Music track listing out of order

    Navigation: Roku App > Music > <pick an album> I noticed this a bit back (e.g. on the previous release app), and hadn't dug deeper until recently because I thought it may have been something odd in my tags. But, I finally looked and I'm not certain what's going on. The track order of tracks on an album in the Roku app (both release and beta) is out of order. I have validated the following: My MP3s are in the folder structure and named <Artist>/<Album>/<track#> - track title.mp3 My MP3s have tags for track, among the other metadata Emby Web produces the track listing in the correct order If I take a random album (Newsies), Roku is displaying the tracks in this order: 7, 13, 14, 8, 5, 10, 15 <etc>. Another random album (Clay Walker / Rumor Has It), Roku is displaying tracks in this order: 6, 2, 8, 5, 1, 3, 10, 7, 4, 9. It IS enumerating the tracks in the Roku display (just not correct track number next to the title). The sort order in Roku doesn't appear to be track order (with or without leading 0s), title, length, or any other metadata available that I can ascertain. Emby Server: (Linux) Roku App Beta: 3.0.118 Roku App Release: 3.0.111
  15. even this is not something you typically see in music apps i would find this pretty useful to have visual feedback on what albums or tracks i've already listened to maybe i'm not alone

    Music artist runtime

    Is there any means as to Emby update the <runtime> on the music artist's metadata. Some have no runtime defined. Others have runtime defined but adding a new music album seems to add no time to the runtime. Thanks
  17. Hi, The music sync performance never has been the best of the world, but it wasn't bad. It's sadly to say that since the last version the performance is horrible. Sorry devs, but I had to say it. I love Emby, but the main reasons to migrate my Plex Server was the music sync. I have to clarify that Plex Server is a fucking nightmare with offline music and Emby is the better option to do this actually. So, I have a list with the main problems with offline music: Not real sync. When Android App die and start again, songs download several times and is necessary to use third party software to clean duplicate files to save storage. When you try to sync playlist or collection with so many songs (500 or more is enough to start the party xD), server and client (android app) goes crazy/slow. Many times, sync process is blocked by a single song. My workaround is edit sync object, delete the blocked song and wait server refresh that song again to include in sync object. After this, sync process start again in some moment, not immediately. I have to clarify that my devices (server and phone) are very powerful: Phone: OnePlus6 (8GB RAM, 8 cores, 128GB internal storage) Server:Dedicated server (bare-metal) in professional hosting. Debian 9 Intel® Xeon® CPU W3520 @ 2.67GHz 16GB RAM Emby is running using Docker (18.06.1~ce~3-0~debian) Attaching my personal sync objects. As always, thank for your support.

    Halloween Theme

    Hi, how to remove the halloween theme, try to change config, in display preference on Emby server, no change on emby app. (have desactivate all option in relation seasonal theme, not working) And can't find the menu in Emby app (disappear when i have change the grid) (Didn't like the theme cause theme music continues playing even after the beginning of the video, must wait for the end of the music .... ) Can you help me ? (sorry for my english, french here )
  19. So I have a couple of playlist downloaded but if I do disconnect and go to downloads the playlist doesn’t show up. It just downloads the songs, but it would be nice if we could just have the playlist ready to be played and not have to go through all the albums to the songs just to add them up next

    Albums by Letter shows Artists by Letter?

    Roku App: 3.0.111 Server: / Linux Roku Navigation: Emby >> Music >> By Letter The title says "Albums by Letter" However, what's displayed is Album Artists by letter. Is this intended? I was anticipating scrolling through my music to get to a specific album, similar to "Movies by Letter", but at the same time, I can see why the idea of Album Artists would be the default screen. I'm just confused from the wording. Also, the aforementioned album is under "Various Artists" (I need to reorganize some of my stuff because that became too much of a catch-some), however, since "Various Artists" has 77 albums, I don't get the full list -- I get the first 25 (this is partly my fault, but I can see some Album Artists having more than 25 albums in my collection soon). Is there any thought of supporting >25 albums for an artist, or should I start finding a way to separate out artists?
  21. When playing a multi-disc album and the 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) disc has a different image (in the file), the image of the first disc is still shown when playing. All files are tagged correctly and in the same folder so these show up as multidisc albums on the server. Can this be fixed, please?
  22. Some music albums have no gap between tracks. Some of them are live recordings and have clapping sounds, on others the music really does not stop playing though the track changes. Emby will currently play these with a silent gap between the tracks. I understand the next track is being read and then the casting starts. I would like it very much to have no silence between the tracks. It would be a real improvement on the listening experience. Also, and maybe as a bonus, Spotify and Windows Media Player have a crossfade option that allows to configure from 1 up to 10 seconds the next track would start before the current playing ends. That would also be a very good Emby feature.
  23. Gents, is there a possibility to display the album image from the music file if this is present, instead of defaulting directly to the folder image? I have a lot of music that are from compilation albums and have thrown these in one large music folder without any further structure nor do I want Emby to index that properly. In other words, it's a mix tape but a very long one. Since Emby does try to scrape metadata for albums anyway, the tracks are displayed with surprisingly different covers. This afternoon when playing music, a Type-O-Negative track came up as an ABBA image, as that is what the folder.jpg is. The track has its own image/cover incorporated and I'd like to see Emby to display this instead of the default jpg in the folder. Cheers,
  24. Hello, i have3 WD NAS My Cloud PR4100 Pro. In my music library there are no pictures of the artists and bands. In (most of it) the metadatas are the musicbrainz-ID's included. Is there an easy way to refresh the metadata with the pictures in all of the 10015 artists. There is no way to do it manually. THX bkh
  25. Hi, I intent to stream my locally stored music (mp3 + ogg) with my mobile device. My download volume (for mobile internet) is limited and therefore I assume I need to transcode the stream somehow. In the bottom line I want to have something similar to Spotify with locally stored music. Can this be realized with Emby Media Server? What is required on the server (hardware, codecs, addons)? Which client should be used on mobile device? How can I ensure remote access to the Emby server? THX
