  1. When browsing movies, etc, add to the "AZ" Sorting pull-down menu, an additional option to "Sort by Filename" This then orders all the movies in the raw, default way, such that they match the file system on which the actual media files are stored, on disk. This order is generally quite different to the default sort order, as movie titles are sorted ignoring the articles: A, An, The... and also some movies have different names displayed, especially foreign films. The file systems sort by the basic pure alphanumeric order.
  2. When organizing my library I often have to move albums to another place in my directory structure. Sometimes there are only small spelling mistakes in the path, which have to be corrected. Is there a way to scan all collections [boxsets] for items with wrong/changed paths? Currently, items with wrong paths are simply not displayed (even they are still in the .xml). That's not nice and very confusing. One totally loses the overview, especially with a very dynamic library (lots of new and deleted paths). It would be totally sufficient if there would be tiny log file somewhere, so I can corrected the wrong items manually. Or a small tool/plugin, which just scans the collections for wrong entries. That would save a lot of time. I think this applies to the playlists equally.

    optional Network Path Question

    Hello folks, Something that I have been wondering for a while now and have not been able to find a clear answer for is this... For setting up libraries, there is the folder and the optional netork path. As I am on a Mac, my folder is listed as /Volumes/Share/Movies With that in mind, should the optional network path be listed as //Server/Share/Movies or should it be \\Server\Share\Movies Currently my shares come from both Windows and Mac boxes, not that I think that makes any difference. Thanks! N

    Path could not be found

    Hi all, I just installed emby server on my linux vps. I want to have my emby libraries on a different server however, specifically a onedrive server. Don't worry, I have that all sorted out, using rclone and a cache. It works like a charm. However, the folder currently is in the root directory, under the name of /onedrive owned by a user and group called qbtuser (from qbittorrent) so it can write nicely to it. Now I need to assign the emby libraries to somewhere like /onedrive/movies and /onedrive/series. However when I try to add a library in emby server and specify the folder, /onedrive is not found. /onedrive is owned by user and group qbtuser, and the directories and files inside are given the permissions of 775. The folder /onedrive itself also has permissions 775. Now, not only does that mean that everyone should be able to read and see what is in every folder, but the first problem arose when the root user tried to read from the /onedrive folder, and they are not allowed to.. Now also emby is not allowed to read or anything. There is a group qbtuser as mentioned before and I have added emby to that, and even rebooted the server, but it still does not work. I am out of ideas. Anyone else got any ideas?

    Kodi/Emby Plugin - Native Path Problem

    Hi, I wanna share with you this native path problem I've just found on Kodi (it's 18.4 / 18.5, but I think the version doesn't matter). I have a folder on my QNAP NAS (where Emby latest server is running), and I added it in the Emby library at this path : /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/Multimedia/Video/2160p Native path : \\\Multimedia\Video\2160p\ Everything is fine .. but .. I have another folder called 2160pUNT (Untouched), so, in Emby is : /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/Multimedia/Video/2160pUNT Native path : \\\Multimedia\Video\2160pUNT\ In Emby standalone client everything works fine. In Kodi all the 2160pUNT folder files are indexed and into the database, but when I try to play them , are all "file missing" .. and I found out why. The native path in Kodi is wrong .. a "/" has been added between 2160p and UNT .. look at the RED slash : smb:// I guess the problem is that he has in the library a folder named 2160p, and when a folder with the same starting name is added (like 2160pUNT), something goes wrong and he puts a / after the shortest path, thinking that everything that comes after it is something into that folder. (I hope my explanation is understandable). Btw I solved renaming one of the two folders. What do you think about ? Regards, G.

  7. hi there, would it be possible to make the path information to files not be displayed in the webclient? or to make it optional in the admin settings somewhere? thx!
  8. Hello, I run emby with a reverse-proxy and redirect the root path to access emby to a sub path of my domain. example: mywebsite/emby/ when I create a homescreen shortcut using mobile chrome for android to access emby it creates the shorcut to the root domain of "mywebsite" instead of "mywebsite/emby/". Thanks for your help, I prefer the web version over the android app.

    Improve reporting features

    Your libraries of movies, TV, etc. almost certainly have lots and lots and lots of misidentified items, errors... 5%, perhaps more is possible... And 5% of a large collection, is a lot of items. Wrongly identified. Emby relies on the various databases on the internet, and between them, they inevitably make the odd mistake... That's fair enough. Many factors are involved, bad filenames, rare titles, foreign character, etc, etc... Some are just stupidly wrong. They're going to happen... BUT. We still don't have any tools to find them. You have no way of knowing how many errors are in your libraries. We have to rely on stumbling upon the error, or if you have an intimate knowledge of what titles you do have, you'll spot a few more of the errors perhaps. As attempted a couple of times, some of us have tried combining the grossly, needlessly inadequate 'Reports' feature (now a plugin), with data pulled from the database files with external tools. This has worked OK, but is a royal PITA, and not slick, not quick to do. But it does show you how many errors emby holds. Which might horrify/surprise you. If you want some fun, reinstall emby from scratch, rebuilding your libraries... You'll very quickly see some errors, with many more being there without you knowing. ALL WE WANT is the ability to, at least, list the path, filename, against the title and year from metadata downloaded... This simple feature, ability, would make finding these numerous errors possible, if a little bit slow to process (takes a lot of concentration to check 5,000 filenames, titles, years). Later, yeah, it would be sweet to have it highlight non-exact matches, that would speed up the process immensely. But we need the minimum now. These tools need to be in the core of emby... It's not good enough that this media database application doesn't have the most basic data analysis tool! Path, filename, title, year. Please.

    Add Sort by Filename/Path

    Now that the SortRemoveWords hack doesn't work, can we please, please just have Sort by 'Filename/Path' added to the sorting options! It's such a simple and obvious feature. I need to change the sort order to match the media files on the filesystem. But Emby sorts the titles ignoring the articles, A, An, The... Which is entirely valid, but we need to switch between either. Emby was created to help us wrangle huge numbers of media files, sorting data is such a basic feature! Please!
  11. There used to be a tab in Libraries to setup path substitution, but now it's nowhere to be seen. Where did it go to? I can't find it anywhere and can't use external players without it. Previous: Now:

    Question about my folder permissions

    Hello Emby comunity, yesterday I have set up my first emby server emby-server-deb_3.5.2.0_amd64.deb on Linux Mint 18.3 (Mate). The Setup of the system worked fine, I have left all settings as default. I have added user emby to group paper I have added user paper to group emby But when I try to add Libraries I face this issue: Folders: I can add folder paths like this: / /home /home/paper /tmp/folder1/folder2/folderX but I can not add this existing folder /home/paper/images (and not any other folder in /home/paper/) When I try this, I receive "The path could not be found. Please ensure the path is valid and try again."

    Emby movie Download location

    Hi there, i have a small question, when i go to the emby server, select a movie and click on download the movie will be Downloaded on my local machines Download folder. is it possible to change this location? keep on the good work
  14. Hello, I installed Emby server on my Raspberry PI 3 recently (Docker official method). It was a little difficult (linux noob inside ) but now all seems to be OK. But, i'm now trying to add a library, but there's a problem as i can't find any folder or share hosted / mounted on the RPi : (as you can see there's nothing but default paths) (network choice empty too) : How Emby detects disks and network shares ? Here is what i have and would want to choose : 1 usb hdd (ext4) + 1 network share (cifs) : If it must be set in Docker, how can i do it (and would it be kept if Emby image is updated ?) Thanks a lot for your assistance. Best regards,
  15. Hi, i've just noticed, that all my *.nfo files contain the local (windows c:\...) path's for the actor images. I had a mapping from the local path to the unc path, which worked fine for month if not years, but now i cant find the entire "Path substituion" menu anywhere in the Webgui. I do still have the "Enable path substitution" checkbutton under Library -> Nfo Settings. Was this removed when a custom unc-path (Shared network folder under a Folder-Path in the library) was added? The only Forum-Article about this i could fin is https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/35508-path-substitution-setting-is-missing/&do=findComment&comment=334997 which basically just points to the Library-Setup-Wiki, which is not correct anymore... How can metadata still be substituted? Im i supposed to add this into Library -> Advanced -> "Metadata path"? There i seem to be unable to add a unc-path (after "Save" the circle icon appears and stays forever)... /hp Version beta
  16. Hi, I have my server for Emby running locally on a Fedora 23 machine, ports forwarded and local networking is fine. I can reach the server website from my external IP address from outside my network and everything loads. I have set up the transcoding/streaming bit rate to be low enough to test streaming despite internet quality.. However I cannot access the media outside of my network. Going through the Kodi Logs (on an external network) its apparent that the Kodi installation isn't looking for the media on my server at a different location however its currently looking at "/mnt/data/Videos/.." on the Kodi machine, whilst the actual data is at a location such as Would i utilise path substitution here? or would that interfere with the transcoding and streaming performance? If i do use PS, how would i go about setting that up? ( i considered FTP or NFS.. but then security question is raised as I'm unsure how you'd have a login for either with the Emby for Kodi add-on). Regards, Jeremy
  17. Hi, When im setting up the server should I be using the local path ie /volume2/tv or the network path ie \\\tv ? When I added the folders with the local path emby found the media files no problem but no files were showing in KODI, When I try and add the folders using the network path to see if this resolves the issue it does not let me add the path giving me a path error. Im thinking this could be because it cant see the network path as it is the same IP as the NAS itself so it wouldnt be able to route to it ? The folders have r/w permisson. Any ideas?
  18. Hi All, So previously I was manually building the folder structure with as Collections but kept it in the movie folders. i.e. Let Me In Lethal Weapon Collection [boxsets] Life As We Know It Lifted Little Children ... ... Major League Collection [boxsets] etc However, Auto Boxsets plugin removes this manual requirement, I can just have movies listed out in the movie folder. For example, if I have all of the Men in Black movies in their individual Men in Black 1, 2, 3 (respectively) folders... Auto Boxsets logically groups these movies as a collection for you. So here is my problem. Auto Box Set plugin is working correctly, but it is creating the folders and metadata (backgrounds) on my C:\ drive which is a big no no. C:\ drive is my OS/Fast App drive so I don't want things like metadata to be stored there. Under Metadata manager I can see Collections but no option for me to edit the path and assign it to a data drive. Is this possible? How can I change this path? I want to change the path prior to removing my manual folder structure and allowing the plugin to group things logically. Also, the old structure and Auto Boxsets work together only through the browser interface. If you pull collections up under a device (IOS, Android, Roku) only collections grouped by Auto Boxsets show. So basically, you have to configure your library to only use the Auto Boxsets functionality if you want device access. Thanks! Draz

    issue with path substitute

    Team I have an issue. I'm testing emby with Kodi, direct folder access. On the qnap all files are in the library with the usual:​ /share/MD0_DATA/Video/... I have mapped it to a disk v:\ In Path Substitute I put in the first line the path of the QNAP and in the second the v:\ but when I press + nothing happens
  20. I just did a reinstall of the server (and Windows, for that matter) and I'm trying to direct the server to reference a different folder than the default ImagesByName folder for People. My server is installed on the C: drive, which is a small 60GB SSD. To save space on my C: drive, I want Emby to locate people images on my E: drive instead. Prior to having to completely reinstall Windows, I was able to save my "ImagesByName" folder (with ~16.5 gb of hi-res actor images from an IMDB IBN People Downloader) to a thumb drive and then migrate those files to the E: drive upon fresh reinstall of Windows and Emby Server. I seem to recall previous iterations of the Server config having a specific setting for redirecting the "ImagesByName" folder to another location, however I can no longer find that setting on the server config. All I have been able to find is the "Path Substitution" under "Library" which is not working for me; I've tested this and it appears that (1) the default C: drive "ImagesByName" folder is empty and that now the C: drive "metadata-->People" folder is where this data is located by default, and (2) even after attempting the "Path Substitution" as noted above, it appears Emby Server is still trying to search in the default folder (~1.15 gb) for People images rather than my substituted path (~16.5 gb, better resolution, etc.). The only other custom path config screen I can find is the cache path, but I'm not thinking that's related. Please advise on how to get Emby Server to recognize a custom path for People images. Thanks in advance for any guidance.
  21. Hi, I'm not sure if this is possible but I think it worth bringing up the idea. Every time that we made a change on the Emby addon settings (server address, use of local paths) that involves a path change for media in Kodi internal DBs, a DB reset/resync is required. How complex or even possible is to instead of doing that, the addon will just change the paths on Kodi DB by executing a SQL query against them as is documented on Kodi wiki site for a library path change? This will require sqlite3 binary on Kodi, that I'm not sure is always there (like in OpenELEC or other Kodi distros). I did this in the path and to be honest it worked like a charm everytime. The advantage I see is that we will save the time it takes for a full resync on huge libraries with low end devices like RPi. Another benefit is that it will reduce the load on the server since it would not be needed at all. Just my two cents. Thanks.

    Orphaned Collections

    In trying to fix another issue, I removed a movie library and replaced it with the same library using a UNC path rather than a local path, then re-scanning the entire library. However, this caused a problem with existing collections made up of titles from the old library. I now cannot see the original collections and when I try to re-create collections for those titles, I get an error stating the collection already exists. I tried editing the collection.xml files in AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Server\data\collections\ to update the local paths to the UNC location, and re-scanning the libraries, but the collections remain missing. In the server log, I get messages stating it cannot locate content for these collections at the old local path (Warn - BaseItem: Unable to find linked item at path M:\My Movies\...). Metadata manager does not show any of the orphaned collections or content either. If possible, it would be great to be able to restore the original collections, but if that is not possible, I'd be fine with deleting the original orphaned collections and re-adding the titles. Even deleting all collections and starting from scratch would be fine. Any ideas how I might do this?
  23. Hi there, I enabled the camera upload this morning for my samsung galaxy s5. I was able to get it to work buy pointing it to a custom folder on the server machine itself. However that machine has limited space available due to the extensive movie library. I changed the upload path to another machine on my network and I simply cant get it to write to that folder. Sharing is enabled and the HTPC-Mb3 server has read write permissions. Is there something I'm missing? Thanks in advance!

    Hallo Zusammen Ich habe vor ca 2monaten den MB-Server installiert und kondiguriert. Es hatte bis zum Update 5.0.5445.5 alles einwandfrei funktioniert, jedoch seit da an meldet es mir bei jedem scan "Scan media library failed. Illegales Zeichen im Pfad." Ich konnte in den Logs nichts auffinden und selber sehe ich keine falsche Zeichen, bzw Sonderzeichen oder der Gleichen. Habt Ihr irgend eine Idee? Danke und Gruss server-63553075199.txt
  25. Hello all I've a little problem since update 3.0.5445.5 In the dashboard it shows me a failed library scan, caused by an illegal sign in a path.

Can someone help me please to resolve this problem? Maybe i've to say, that i've modified some other files to create 3 server with 1 configuration .. Well, all my servers have the same problem and are running now update 3.0.5445.6 - which also don't resolve the problem. In the attachement are the latest 3 logfiles from my mainserver.
