    Use Emby connect as password

    Hello everyone. It's thatoneguy99 back with another seemingly easy problem that I can't figure out. Long story short I have finally figured out nginx and reverse proxy. I have it setup for domain/emby. It works great... Now I have users that are connected through my server with Emby connect. If I go to my URL (domain/emby) I can log in as those users without having to enter a password. What I would like to do is only grant access to those users once they have signe in with their Emby connect information. I don't want them to have to create a password, I just want them to be able to use
  3. The Roku Emby app needs to be able to remember the password once logged into. Its very annoying to have to put login info in all the time. So annoying in fact that I use a separate DLNA app that a password is not required. I like the app but its just annoying to constantly entering password especially when the Roku does not have a keyboard. Please allow the Roku app to remember password and logins, Thanks!
  4. Hi, maybe a silly question but is there a way to have a password only for remote access (either via android tablet or windows laptop) that then doesn't require local users to input as well? TIA and sorry if I am missing something simple in the server setup area. Brad

    Password Issue

    ​Hi All, I discovered today when setting up my brother in laws Amazon Fire Stick that if the users password has the £ symbol in it you receive a message that the Username/Password is invalid. Changing the users password to not include the £ symbol allows the user access. I reset the users password before changing it to not include the £ so definitely knew I was entering the correct password. Other symbols seem to be ok, tested with ! and $ This only seems to be an issue on the Amazon device as the user could log in via a web browser and the Android application. Just thought I'd

    password reset

    I cannot get my password to reset. I am able to get the page that comes up and gives you your link & pin. However, when I open the link I am redirected to the page where you enter the pin but only for a spilt second, it then redirects me to the log in page where it asks for user name and password. It won't let me stay on the pin page long enough to enter the pin. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but it didn't work. I think i have the latest version 3.05781.1. I have tired using firefox and chrome.
  7. I think I solved the Emby and Kodi Master Lock issue. At least, it has worked for me since June 28, 2015 with no apparent negative impacts. CAUTION/DISCLAIMER: This worked for me on a networked dual server source/multiple client setting. I cannot guarantee it will work for your specific set up. Here is a step-by-step of what I did, and some tips and pointers I learned; I am doing it from memory a week after the fact, so I hope I didn't forget anything. Please feel free to shoot anything down if you wish. My whole reason for doing this was to have multiple profiles that were protect

    Don't want Password

    For about a month now EMC is asking for a password - This was never needed before. Having to grab the keyboard everytime is getting tedious as it goes back to the login screen after a film - Is there a tweak I can do and what changed ? EDIT; Emby Theatre and the server don't ask for a PW so this is EMC specific. Also tried in different themes no change
  9. I would like to use strong passwords for exposing my server to the internet for mobile clients, but I also want to support the 10 foot experience at home, where I like to use a 4 digit password for parents' content and no password for kids' content. Is there any chance of a feature to support this scenario? Basically, I'd like 2 passwords per user where the strong passwords are required for all clients except whitelisted clients (my TV), which would accept the weak passwords.
  10. I'm trying version 590 and I noticed that on the manual login page at least the password field is clear text. So when you type a password, is visible to anyone in the room. Would it be possible to hide the typed characters like in a regular password field where they are replaced with stars? Thanks
  11. Upon launching the EMBY Android app, after about 30 seconds I get a list of servers attached to my EMBY Connect account. However, when I click on one of them to connect I'm taken to a user screen which contains EMBY user accounts not connected using EMBY Connect. If I go back to my server list, I scroll to the bottom I'm asked to "Sign in with Emby Connect". Just a guess but it appears my EMBY Connect ID is being used in order to display the servers connected to the account but it needs to be entered again to use it to connect to one of the servers? Is the server list "cached" from a prior

    Password Problems

    OK, so I have been having password problems since I set up my server last night. I orginally set up a server with my username "BeeGee" and I used my same password I used for this forum. I also set up a new user today and used the same password. I have had many problems trying to sign into my server because it will not except my password but have found an easy way out of using it by just clicking on the avatar. I really did not want to bother anyone about this but when I opened my kodi it wanted my password for "BeeGee" and when I enetered it I got an error message that I tried too many times.
  13. Hey Guys, In Emby For Kodi i can setup a password for my samba share to provide direct stream. Is this also possible in emby for Fire TV? For kodi I used following path substitution and it worked just fine: /media -> smb://user:password@@nas.home/videos I know it's not the common one but it worked. Is there a possible workaround for kodi available? Thanks your!

  15. Hii all! The title is my question .... could that be possible? If we disable the access to the settings page, our users cant change the default password we generate. For any help i'll be very happy Kind regards, Fino

    Cannot set password

    Just updated server to Version 3.0.5518.7 Attempted to set password on the Preferences->Profile screen and the Dashboard->Users<username>->Password screen. Password does not include any special characters Cannot set password. Receive message "Invalid user or password entered." Thanks, RedStripe
  17. Hello. Does anybody know why my forum password and username won't allow me to login to the website? I tried to register (just in case I had to), and it said the email and username already existed. Any ideas? Thanks.
  18. I'd like to redefine the meaning of local network to include one remote location/ip address so that the Roku at my cabin won't need to login with a password, but from other external locations a user/password would be necessary. How is the local network defined? Can I add the static ip of my cabin router somewhere in a config file? I understand how to set up a password for users not on the local network, and I'd like to apply that security, but I (and other users) really don't want to have to enter in a password every time I start up the Roku at the cabin/the channel updates... I

    password not authorized

    Been using MBT for a while, with no major issues, but after a recent update, it asked for my password again, and gives the following message: The Remote Server returned an error (401): Unauthorized. My password is correct, I have even tried changing it. I am entering my password via keyboard

    password not authorised

    I have a RECURRING authorisation problem: Login Failure. The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized. The HTPC-system is installed on a yacht, most of the time without internet connection. The solution to reinstall MBT from website works but after every shutdown of the HTPC-system the problem returns...? How can I permanently solve this without reinstalling MBT every day? Latest MBT System: Vista HTPC
  22. Hi, I am testing Media Browser 3 in a school network environment, it is working very well with over 50 users signed up, we need to find a way to restrict/disable the user from changing their password, username and profile details. Is there a way of implementing this, once we have this setup this will be used for over 1500 users, on laptops, tablets, phones, DNLA devices and computers, so this is a very good testing ground. I look forward to hearing your suggestions. Many thanks Nathaniel
  23. Issue: I can create a new user but cannot set a password, I get a "Invalid user or password entered" message on screen and in the logs.

  24. I have 3 accounts set up, each viewing a specific part of my video collection. One account has a password. When I log on to Media Browser Theater and click in the password field, a keyboard appears. The password I type in can plainly be seen . After typing the password, it appears in asterisks ***. I use version 3.0.5275.17099. *** Please reply with helpful information, no blames nor 'use this and that instead' ***
  25. Hi, I have set my profiles with no passwords for easy usage of Media Browser inside my home by my family. Recently I have opened the ports on my router for remote access, to acces Media Browser via my Android phone. Is there a way to ensure that only I have remote access to my server? E.g. via a password or via another way? Any ideas anyone?
