  1. Long-ish question, *hopefully* easy answer: I recently upgraded from several external hard drives to a QNAP NAS. After testing the QNAP Emby app server performance, I preferred the old Windows-based server overall and thus the new QNAP is purely operating as the NAS, not the server (hence this forum). That being said... Similar to a question I had awhile back here, after changing my library media folders to the new NAS folders, I am again having difficulty saving metadata into local media folders (rather than in a generic "metadata" folder in the server files). When I add new content, the metadata is successfully being saved somewhere else (unknown location, log attached, tried to refresh "The Accountant" movie metadata). Not only do I instead want the metadata saved in the media folders, but wherever it's actually being saved is seemingly eating up scarce storage on my OS/server hard drive (small SSD). According to QNAP, I have enabled permissions for 'everyone' (see attached Capture #1) for my media content. Windows, however, is much more challenging as to confirming these network folder permissions. Unlike when using my external hard drives and simply assigning 'everyone' full R/W permissions through Windows Explorer and then applying these changes, Windows won't let me change these same settings for the QNAP folders, apparently giving full deference to QNAP's security settings and not allowing me to make any changes within Windows; I have navigated everywhere in the Windows folder permission settings and any changes I try simply won't stick, instead reverting to QNAP's overriding "special permissions" (see Capture #2). How do I get metadata to save directly in the media folders of the NAS? Thanks in advance for any input! server-63624863086.txt
  2. .17 I have permissions turned off for most of my users for any type of Live TV functionality. Users that don't have permissions are still seeing the ON NOW section on home screen of the app and regardless of their permissions they can access and play any live tv feed featured in ON NOW.
  3. I've just setup an fresh OpenMediaVault Install with emby enabled. So far everything went without problems, but now I'm stuck. Embys Library Scan is not working at all - it doesn't even try. If I click the scan button the progress bar is visible for just a fraction of a second - the log shows "scan completed on 0 minutes and 0 seconds" and of cause no movies show up in my library. I've already tried different folders, reinstalling emby and resetting the permissions of the media-folder. No luck so far... Permissions for the directory are as follows drwxrwsr-x 2 root users 4096 Jan 25 01:11 Movies Permissions for the Files -rw-rw-r-- 1 root users 11000000842 Jan 8 17:25 Captain Phillips (2013).mkv I'm using OpenMediaVault 2.1 with their current emby plugin (Emby Version 3.1.2.0) Any idea what might be the problem?

    Deleting Media from Kodi

    All - I currently have my FreeNAS running Emby Media Server. I have the permissions set so Kodi only has read access to my media shares. Does anyone use the functionality within Kodi so you can delete media from your server via the context menu? I am considering changing my permissions to the media share to Emby is able to delete media items. I was just curious to hear how others used this functionality. The only way I can currently delete media is either mapping the SMB share to my PC with an authenticated user or logging in via SSH and removing files. Thanks
  6. Hi guys... I was wondering if there's any plans to make users on a server have the ability to set per library permissions. For example on my Music folder I might want some users to be able to stream/listen to the library, but not be able to download them. Others I might want the other way around. But at the same time. I may want them to not be able to encode/stream video to their devices but instead download the full file and play it locally. (Guests for example who are not in my network.) Where as another user I might prefer that they have the ability to stream or download video but have no download access to a single library. Basically I would like to see/have per library permissions for each user if possible. (Maybe adding group permissions might make more sense if you have to go down this road?) Hope that makes sense? If it needs further clarification or a flow chart or something let me know. Thanks! -Phantom
  7. I've seen in other threads a few different scenarios for handling library and permission setup, but I wanted to get a clear recommendation for best practices, since I'm just starting out. Is there a recommended, standard, or common way to handle permissions of shared media libraries for emby? My media library is relatively small at the moment, but I intend on growing once I have emby up and running properly. I can see advantages of putting my media library in /home/emby, or putting it in my personal home directory and simply modifying the emby user's permission to that portion of my home directory. I could also see merit in putting it somewhere impartial like /media, /share, or /var/share. I could change ownership of the folder, or I could add the emby user to the group that has permission. I am on a shared computer, but I don't necessarily want access to the media limited to one user. The idea is that eventually it will be one media library directory where we will dump the whole family's photos, music, and videos together, and emby serves it to other devices on our network. I'm new at this, so I likely haven't thought through all the implications of each option. What do most of you guys do?

    Network library permissions

    I'm not sure if I found a bug, or is just by design. I'm running Mediabrowser server 3.0.5518.4 on CentOS 7 and my media library is hosted on a Windows SMB fileshare that MB access through the network. This share has read-only permissions. I mounted this SMB share on my CentOS server so it looks local to any application that runs on this machine. Then I configured MB library to point to this local folder. The library was successfully scanned, all the metadata was retrieved correctly from the internet and I was able to watch content from a web browser and also from my iPad. So far so good. All my movies and tv shows have subtitles, they were scanned and detected correctly by MB. The problem is that when I try to enable the subs for any movie or tv show, they don't work. On any device (web or tablet). Video and audio is ok but the subs just don't work. I went through MB logs and I found that every time I enabled subs this error is logged (partial extract below, full trace attached): Access to the path "/storage/Movies/WhatEverMovie/WhatEverMovie.spa.srt" is denied. This is not true, since subs and video files are in the same folder on the share. I also try to open the subs file from the MB machine with vi, cat, more, etc. and there is no problem at all. I can read the file perfectly. Of course since the share is read-only I can only read the file, not modify it, delete it, etc. I tried to change the permissions on the share to allow write access, just for the sake of testing and voila, subs started to work from MB. Now my questions are, why MB will fail to display the subtitles if it doesn't have write access to the file? Is this a bug? By design? Any other application/media player I tried had no problem at all to display the video and the subs from this read-only network share. Thanks in advance for your replies. Cheers. Full_trace.txt
  9. I just installed media browser and following the tutorial, it tells me to do "service mediabrowser start" I get this after typing it. service mediabrowser start Removing stale /var/run/mediabrowser.pid rm: remove write-protected regular file ‘/var/run/mediabrowser.pid’? y rm: cannot remove ‘/var/run/mediabrowser.pid’: Permission denied start-stop-daemon: unable to open pidfile '/var/run/mediabrowser.pid' for writing (Permission denied) How can I fix this? Thanks
