  1. When adding a new music album, Emby will not add it's genre to any of it's AlbumArtists or TrackArtists already created. If the AlbumArtist or TrackArtist is new to the database, Emby will create it and properly associate according to the album genre.

    Continuous music play

    Should I expect gapless playback mentioned here on the AndroidTV app?

    Music Playback Randomly Stops

    I have Emby server (version running on a Synology DS216play (DS version DSM 6.2.2-24922 Update 3). Our primary client is the Emby app on our Apple TV 4K (both running most recent versions). When playing music, we generally select Songs and Shuffle, allowing it to cycle through our entire library (about 4500 songs of various formats). We have a Weimaraner who has a bit of separation anxiety so when we are gone and leave her crated we leave music playing in the background to help calm her. When I first switched from Plex to Emby, we could gone several hours, as much as 6 hours, and get home to find the music still playing. Even now, there are times my wife leaves it on while she is home during the day and it plays 7-8 hours without stopping. However, over the past two weeks, we periodically come back into the livingroom to find that the music has stopped. There is no outward sign of a problem... the Apple TV screen saver is on (it comes on after 2 minutes so it's not that interrupting the music) and when we clear it the Emby "now playing" screen is up with the latest song displayed but stopped. There is no error message and if we hit Play it starts playing again just fine. I have not tested to see how long it might go when restarted. Generally, it seems like it stops after 1-3 hours. There appears to be no commonality in terms of which song it stops on. I've checked the Emby logs and, while there are some errors here and there, since I don't know exactly what time it stopped playing I can't tell whether any of them have anything to do with the issue. Since many are in periods that it appears the music was playing ok, I suspect they are minor issues that have nothing to do with playback stopping. I've enabled Debugging on the log page and am playing music now while we are home, hoping to catch when it stops and be able to check the logs in that time period. This is exactly why I left Plex as we had a similar problem with it that I never could solve (nor could the Plex support people). Given it was happening on Plex, too, I have to wonder whether it is an Apple TV issue but, if so, assume the problem is surely in the Emby app on Apple TV (and the Plex app before it). Hopefully, even then whatever happens would show up in the Emby logs. I searched the forums and don't see anything quite like this. Any suggestion? Thanks, Nathan
  4. This has been tested both on WebApp and AndroidApp against the AndroidTV app. FF/REW will not work nor sliding music timeline: no means to fast forward or rewind a track; When displaying a music album on WebApp or Android and one track is casted, Emby AndroidTV will play first album track regardless of wich track has been casted. Curiously, casting a song from search results will correctly play that specific song. After connecting to the AndroidTV, when browsing from the Web/Android apps, some of the screens are correctly presented on AndroidTV but others aren't. After connecting to the AndroidTV, when browsing from the Web/Android apps, after some time the AndroidTV screensaver is invoked. The remote control does not reset inactivity timer. I would expect accessing remote control's "Now Playing" screen (Web/Android) to cause AndroidTVApp to display "Queue Screen" or "Now Playing" screen. Instead no screen is shown.
  5. I do not know how development team would refer to each one but... when playing music there is: - One screen containing controls to the music being played along with current queue on form of horizontal track listing below controls. (this one I would refer to as the "Queue Screen") - Another screen wich is not possibly invoked by the remote control. It will, instead, be shown after some inactivity time. This screen also contains info on track being played but no info on queue. (this would be the "Now playing" screen) So regarding "Queue Screen": It currently has two areas and scrolls vertically. One area presents media playing controls and the other shows a horizontal listing of playing queue tracks; On my device (Sony/AndroidTV/4k) occurs a vertical scroll when cursor goes from one area to other. I do not know if it works this way on all devices but I see no reason why there should be vertical scroll at all: there are lots of space and some minor adjustments will make both areas to show at once. Minor adjustments such as: Removing the "Current queue" title shown above horizontal track listing (see no reason as to why to keep it there); Presenting media controls area and album image with 90% of their current sizes; Presenting track icons on the second ares with 90% of their current sizes. There are currently no means as to skip forward or backwards on a track being played using hard buttons from remote control. Only Previous/Next buttons are functional. Rew and FF hard buttons results are the same as Previous/Next. Tried to skip using Emby's remote from the smartphone Android app but it will also not work. So I see currently no way to fast forward or rewind a given track being played at all. On the first area (media control) the interface presents a button as to reorder queue. As I am running Brazilian Portuguese version, I could not see the actual name it has on the English version. This button suffles current queue. It seems that: After shuffling, new queue is not displayed on the interface. User has to reach other screen (back button or else) and then come back to see new track order; It would better shuffle only future itens keeping current and already played tracks just as they are; After shuffling it currently presents a dialogue box asking if the shuffled result should be added or if it should replace the current queue. I see no scenario to the first option. You just shuffled queued itens. Is there any scenario as to keep the current queue order and add all the same shuffled tracks to it's end? I wonder if development team already has plans but when cursor comes down to the second area, there could be some sort of fine manual reordering enabled by longpressing "Ok" hard button on a track and then moving it to left or to right. Pressing "Ok" hard button on any track listed on the second area currently presents three choices (Play from here, Remove from Queue and Toggle favorite). I would suggest adding "Goto AlbumArtist" and "Goto Album" choices. There is a "Repeat toggle" interface button. It's function is sole to repeat the current track? I would suggest the most common three state repeat mechanism: off, repeat current track, repeat all queue. It occurs the same AlbumArtist/TrackArtist issue mentioned here and here.
  6. I do not know how development team would refer to each one but... when playing music there is: - One screen containing controls to the music being played along with current queue on form of horizontal track listing below controls. (this one I would refer to as the "Queue Screen") - Another screen wich is not possibly invoked by the remote control. It will, instead, be shown after some inactivity time. This screen also contains info on track being played but no info on queue. (this would be the "Now playing" screen) So regarding "Now Playing" screen: Beautiful screen, good useful info being displayed. It is a real improvement from Chromecast's approach I was used to; How this screen is invoked: There is currently no way to invoke this screen. Emby app will call it after some inactivity time but only if user was on the "Queue Screen". If app is left inactive on any other screen while still playing, inactivity time will lead to AndroidTV's default screen saver. I would suggest that, during playback:This "Now Playing" screen to be shown after inactivity on any Emby app screen; Similarly to the "Queue Screen" thumbnail shown on other screens during playback, there could be a "Now Playing" thumbnail that would only be shown on the "Queue Screen". This would allow the user to start it any time. Artist name is shown on upper left area. Problem here is that artist name shown is probably the "first row" from the result set app got querying server about TrackArtists. As already mentioned here, it would better show all AlbumArtists or all TrackArtists. (this is the only "real problem" on this screen) Still regarding artist name: for AlbumArtists with a logo image I would also suggest app should prefer showing AlbumArtist's logo instead of name; Background slideshow: Really beautiful. And it is a very good feature that it toggles from all AlbumArtist's background images when the Album being played has no background image. If the album has a background image, though, slideshow will stick to it and there will be no togglin if album has just one background image. I would suggest the slideshow image selection would always include all album artist background images as well as background images from all TrackArtists.
  7. Version Windows 10 64-bit, browsing with Chrome. This isn't 100% repeatable, and seems to happen randomly. I've noticed while browsing my music library by album, sorted by date added (descending,) after navigating a few pages back it will start generating random pages of albums. I'm pretty sure it's just skipping to a random, deep page but presenting it as, say, page 8. Once this happens, changing pages (in either direction) doesn't work. I have to navigate back to 'music' and start again from the beginning. It seems to happen more quickly if I actually play music, or navigate to an album (leaving the list, momentarily) but sometimes it seems fine for a few more pages. I've noticed this for a a few versions now (in fact, I don't remember it ever working perfectly.) I've tried viewing emby in an incognito window with all plugins disabled, but it doesn't seem to help.

    Artist on "now playing" screen

    The "now playing" screen on AndroidTV app currently shows one (the first on database?) track artist to the track being played. I understand it should present: - If "album artist" is listed on the track or there is no artist on the track > "album artist" - If "album artist" is not listed on the track > all "track artists" (this is my hint, but anyway current infi shown is just "one artist from the track")
  9. It seems the AndroidTV app missed the "Appears on" section shown under the artist display. That section is presented by the WebApp and contains music where the artist is a "track artist" but not the "album artist". It occurs, thought, if you shall hit the play button, all tracks are correctly added to the now playing queue. It would be very nice to have all albuns in which the artist takes part shown, even if he is not the album artist.
  10. I'm putting this issue seperate from another issue to keep the replies clear. When I scrol through the EMC home screen to the "Music" entry, WMC freezes and throws an error message pop up. I will attach a screen shot, although it doesn'tshow much. The "Latest" music widget is also empty too. MBClassic-19920199454183a5a4a4f56a26dc8709a4b4d80.log embyserver.txt
  11. That would be so nice... to have a listing of all tracks from a given artist. A big plus if we could sort it by date, duration, album title... Today we just have the album listing on the artist's detail screen. Seeking for various recording of a given track means browsing each and every album. I know there is a general search but I really think there should be a means to list all tracks from the artist.

    Songs only playing for 50-70 seconds.

    Have an Emby server set-up on a Pi3. Everything seems to work except music playback through the Kodi app. Songs play 50 - 70 seconds, stop and move on to the next track. Same thing is happening on two boxes, a Pi with OSMC and a Mint19 linux box. Play fine through the web browser. If I turn off Transcode the songs don't play at all. Even though they are kodi friendly formats and play if scanned into Kodi the old fashioned way. Not a deal breaker but would be nice to get everything shared the same way before setting up the rest of the devices in the house. embyserver.txt ffmpeg-transcode-7895ebae-5ef5-4334-85aa-69c458331ed0_1.txt
  13. Hi, I'm not sure if this is a known problem or if it has been experienced by anyone else? The problem I'm experiencing is the intermittent cutting out and skipping of the last few seconds of a music track when playing on Kodi using Emby. If you choose to play an album then, randomly, when playing the last few seconds of music of a track are skipped and the player jumps to the next track. I've done a clean install and checked using a number of configurations and the problem is reproduced. I've noticed the following: The problem doesn't occur when playing with a 'standard' Kodi configuration using an SMB source and connection for the Music store on the file server. The problem doesn't occur when using EmbyCon When using the Emby plugin, the Fast Foward/Skip Forward and Fast Back/Skip Back controls are missing on the Full Screen Player view but do show on the Home Screen mini-player (Confluence Skin) on the Estuary Skin the FF/FR controls are missing. Problem is not to do with player Cross Fading setting. Sometimes a track will play to the end and sometimes the same track will cut out a few seconds before the end and jump to the next track. Configuration is: Emby Server Emby Kodi Plug-In 4.1.14 Log File - https://paste.kodi.tv/oqigeyovel Would welcome any suggestions about how to fix problem. Many thanks, -martinix

    Update Emby Android UI

    I feel like certain parts of the Android app for emby could do with some visual upgrading I know that it is a topic that has been suggested before, but I have attached a couple of concept images of what I believe is a decent update to the current UI to the music playing screen, I suppose similar could be done to the tv and movie casting screen as well. The Images showcase the current interface and my suggested cleaner interface, what does everyone think?

    Musik-Archivierung, Klangverbesserung

    Hallo, ich habe mich für »emby« entschieden, weil ich eine Möglichkeit suchte, um meine nicht ganz kleine iTunes Musik-Mediathek (ca. 16.000 Songs) auf meine Chromecast Mi-Box zu streamen. Ein erster Versuch mit einigen Testalben funktionierte gleich zufriedenstellend und ich bin mit dem Stream-Ergebnis sehr zufrieden. Nichtsdestotrotz stellen sich mir zwei Fragen: 1. Gibt es eine Möglichkeit die Klangqualität der teilweise schon älteren Alben wie unter iTunes zu verbessern (z.B. per Equalizer)? 2. Die Archivierung der Musik funktioniert nicht ganz so wie es sein sollte. Die Rubrik "Alben" bleibt bei mir leer. Statt dessen erscheinen die Alben unter "Verzeichnisse". Kann man das ändern? Ich experimentiere zwar noch, aber was ich bisher so erfahren habe gefällt mir sehr gut. Greetings, zenobit06
  16. Hey all, I know this has been talked about a couple times, but over and over I stumble on this change… Most recently I realized I won't be able to control my synced music playback through Android Auto. Unless/until Emby gains Auto integration / certification at least. I understand the reasons behind the change to use the Download Manager, there's no point in reinventing the wheel. But maybe there's a third option? I'm sure Emby gets notified of successful downloads, couldn't it then move the downloaded files to a location accessible to other apps? Basically treat the app-only data directory as temporary storage for in-progress downloads? That, or use the DownloadManager's API to download to a public location, enabling MediaScanner, too? Thanks for listening
  17. I'm trying out Emby as a music server, with Emby on Apple TV as the client. I have a copy of my iTunes library on my Emby Server, so I pointed Emby at the iTunes music folder and it ingested my library. Another couple hours to fix missing album art, wrong artists, misc details like that (stuff that I've did in iTunes years ago). But now...what? Emby didn't (couldn't?) import my iTunes playlists or any of my iTunes play count or rating info (bummer, but understandable). So what can Emby do for making playlists? How do I make playlists? I see the method of adding individual songs, tediously, from within the server. Is there an easier way? Is there anything like the "Genius" feature in iTunes that can autogenerate playlists given a starting song? Is there a rating system I should spend some time with? I've pretty savvy on Emby as a movie server. But I'm a total newb using it for music. A quick look at the FAQ and Wiki doesn't show me anything. Thanks for any tips and pointers!

    Music details

    It would be amazing if Emby could store detailed info on a track/tune. Not only could we add things like lyrics but other, maybe, historical info e.g. like this music was composed to the festival...

    Shuffle on music genre

    Running Emby version From Web interface, it seems Emby's shuffle for a music genre results on choosing a sole random album and playing all tracks from this album. It also seems this behaviour does not occur when casting from the android app to a Chromecast. Tried also to navigate to the all music section, filter the music by genre and then shuffle it. Got same result.
  20. Above screen is Emby's web interface "now playing screen" for music. Wouldn't be awesome if all artist's listed have links to their detail screen?

  24. Above image is Emby's web interface screenshot from the album detail screen. It has one of the track's menu "activated". It seems to me there could be real improvements with very little effort. a) There is currently no "Play" button on the track line. Instead each track line shows three buttons: "Add to playlist", "More..." (which opens the menu shown on the above image) and "Add to favorites". The "Add to playlist" is also shown on the "More…" menu. I would suggest: relocate "More" button to the end change "add to playlist" to play button using the long click function already standard to Emby as a means to select one or more tracks to insert/create a playlist. b ) Once the "Play" button is present, I would suggest every contributing artist on the track line, e.g.: number (1) on the image, to be a link to the artist detail page. I understand the "Play" button is a conceptual change but even sticking to the current line-touch-playing I think artist's linking on track would be a real improvement on user's experience navigation. c) On track's "More" menu there currently is a "View artist" option (number 3 on the above image) which actually leads to the first track's contributing artist. I would suggest changing this option to "View Album artist". As mentioned on "(b)" above, every contributor artist would be reachable from links under track's name. d) I found no reason why each track "More" menu has an "View album" option (number 2 on the image) as we already are on the album detail page. e) The "now playing" tray currently have two links: one to the album detail screen containing the track being played and one to track's artist detail page. Problem here is this second link leads to "the first contributing artist" Emby grabs from database. As stated on item "(b)" above, I suggest there should be a link to each artist shown.
  25. Hi, As far as I could conclude, Chromecast's now playing screen for music shows: - Album art on the lower left corner and fanart as the background - track title, first track's artist, album title Well, it seems to me this is kind of a bug: you see, when the track being played has more than one artist, just one is shown. Also, when track artist is not the album artist we end up with album artist not being displayed. It seems to me this info should be displayed like this: - When track artist equals to album artist: track title, track artist, album title - When track artist differs from ambum artist: track title, all track artists, album artist, album title What do you think about it?
