    Question about my SSL cert

    Hello all, A friend of mine reached out to me the other day to let me know that they could no longer connect to my emby server. It had been running fine, so I was puzzled. When I went and looked at the settings, it turns out that the server no longer appears to be running over HTTPS, only on HTTP. I don't even see any option for HTTPS other than under Expert->Advanced where I can set the external HTTPS port. I am currently on the 3.5 beta. Everything works fine right now on HTTP, but I would much prefer to be running over HTTPS again. Anyone have any thought or suggestions? Thanks! N

    Server stürtzt unregelmäßig ab

    Hallo liebes Emby Team, Mojn an alle Emby Nutzer, ich habe das Problem dass mein Emby Server unregelmäßig abstürtzt, ich aber die Fehlerquelle nicht erkennen kann: BItte um Hilfe....?! https://paste2.org/LcnYD3gh
  3. Hi, I am new to emby but I have a question / feature request. I have 2 emby server a) home nas company nas Is there a way of mapping the both together, so that I don't have to switch all time the server and that I have kind of a global search on both servers? Or how do you resolve this? Please tell me that this feature exists, and how to use thanks in advance
  4. Hey, During a library scan, Emby decided to freeze up. My steps were to restart the server, which I probably shouldn't have, and then that froze up. I closed out of all the windows and it won't boot up my dashboard. Any tips? Thanks. - Arly

    Mass-Select Content

    Hey, Organizing items into specific collections w/o plug-ins. I have been able to mass-select before, just have no idea how I got there. Any help is appreciated. Thanks. - Arly
  6. Hi, I missed a movie on TV recently, and it's likely to be re-run at some point. However, I can "only" search for keywords in current tv guide. It could be cool if I could create a "wish list", which Emby scanned for when updating guide info. Then there could be a push message, pop-up, email, icon, or other way of notifying the user that a keyword on his/her search list has come up. Thanks - Jennice
  7. My Emby server is setup on an UNRAID server with the Emby created docker. It constantly loses the thumbnail images in the Next Up category. I can re-add them and in a day they are gone. It would appear these are not saved with the media on the server as are other images? What do I need to do to correct this issue, it has become quite annoying Thanks... Will
  8. I have an old show encoded in XVID inside AVI containers. When I DirectPlay them on a device that supports AVI/XVID, they play fine, but if transcoding kicks in then the video turns into a garbled pixelated mess with tons of macroblocking. The audio sounds fine. This happens on all devices when transcoding. Here are the transcoding logs: ffmpeg-transcode-13c2ec0e-ff80-4827-b534-fd0bcc046eea.txt ffmpeg-transcode-fc23c1d9-8a80-4821-b2ec-1c32e92785c8.txt Media Info for the file: Format : AVI Format/Info : Audio Video Interleave File size : 232 MiB Duration : 24 min 42 s Overall bit rate : 1 311 kb/s Writing library : VirtualDub build 13720/release Video ID : 0 Format : MPEG-4 Visual Format profile : Advanced Simple@L5 Format settings : BVOP2 / GMC3 Format settings, BVOP : 2 Format settings, QPel : No Format settings, GMC : 3 warppoints Format settings, Matrix : Default (H.263) Muxing mode : Packed bitstream Codec ID : XVID Codec ID/Hint : XviD Duration : 24 min 42 s Bit rate : 1 173 kb/s Width : 640 pixels Height : 480 pixels Display aspect ratio : 4:3 Frame rate : 23.976 (23976/1000) FPS Color space : YUV Chroma subsampling : 4:2:0 Bit depth : 8 bits Scan type : Progressive Compression mode : Lossy Bits/(Pixel*Frame) : 0.159 Stream size : 207 MiB (90%) Writing library : XviD 1.0.2 (UTC 2004-08-29) Audio ID : 1 Format : MPEG Audio Format version : Version 1 Format profile : Layer 3 Format settings : Joint stereo / MS Stereo Mode : Joint stereo Mode extension : MS Stereo Codec ID : 55 Codec ID/Hint : MP3 Duration : 24 min 42 s Bit rate mode : Constant Bit rate : 128 kb/s Channel(s) : 2 channels Sampling rate : 48.0 kHz Compression mode : Lossy Delay relative to video : 3 s 3 ms Stream size : 22.6 MiB (10%) Alignment : Split accross interleaves Interleave, duration : 42 ms (1.00 video frame) Interleave, preload duratio : 500 ms Writing library : LAME3.95
  9. Hello All. I currently have a Emby Server on Windows 10. I have it pretty much how I want. I use Storage Spaces with a handful of drives. I want to dual boot my PC with Fedora or Linux Mint and also set up my Server on it as well. This server will have its own drive but it will have the same data as the other. The perfect situation is that no matter which system I boot into, Emby is running fine in the background. I have just downloaded an add-on app to save my server settings. I have a copy of those settings on my new drive. So, I am needing some help on how to migrate these settings from a Windows 10 install to either a fedora/Linux Mint install. Is there a guide, link, or walk through that will show me what to do? The hardest part about setting up a new server is getting everything just right. I would like to make that not as difficult, especially adding the users again. Thanks!

    International Viewing.

    Hey, So, context to my situation, I am in the process of immigrating to Canada via USA. I have set a server up at a location in the United States (this unit will move to Canada within six months from now) & want to view my content from Canada through my Xbox One. Is it possible to access a server located in the USA from Canada?
  11. Hi, I am a new user (came from Plex). Just got an Apple TV and downloaded the app on the Apple TV and on my Mac. The server is on a hard-drive connected to my Mac. I am trying to access the server through Emby from my Apple TV and it is showing the screen Welcome to Emby. Inserted photo. ​I went through the Enter server Address. ( I tested it on another computer PC - worked just fine). And it does not even show an error screen just loops back to the same "welcome to Emby". I have checked my LAN setting on the Apple TV and reset them, nothing is working. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Holly
  12. Bug: Image Fetcher settings are not saved if other edits have been made and not saved first. Workaround is to manage the Image Fetchers BEFORE making any other changes Severity: Important/High OS/Apps Effected: Server (via Web) OS/Apps Effected relates to hardware that I have access too. If it doesn't state other OSes, it's not that it doesn't exist, rather it's that I don't have the hardware to check for it.
  13. One of the remote users on my server has been reporting freezing and stuttering quite often despite waiting for the transcode to reach 100%. It has happen across several different movies. It will play fine for some time but after 10-30 minutes the movie will freeze and it will never stutter and freeze from that point on. The movie is always 100% transcoded before playback begins and both of our speeds are quite sufficient for streaming and we experience no problems on any other sites. Were mainly using the web interface and google chrome for the remote user to play movies but have tried using embycon for kodi and experienced the same problem but much worse (froze every 2 minutes). I've tried enabling and disabling hardware acceleration as well as limiting the bitrate. In the past we've had success using 1080p 5mbps and waiting 30-45 minutes before playback. Now with the same settings were experiencing way more problems. Not quite sure what more i can try.
  14. Hey all, I haven't used emby since this time last year, was curious how the development on using the nvidia shield as a server has been. A few question I have are: When a new server update come out is it pushed to the android platform as well? How well does hardware acceleration work? How is overall performance people have experience while using the shield as their server? Thank you for the replies!
  15. Hi, I've been using Emby for at least month on a temporary server and now consider buying premiere sub, there are some movie collections though that I configured myself, creating custom images, thumbs, description, etc. Will those images and descriptions carry over (if I have premiere sub) when I install Emby server on a dedicated linux server (using the same hdd, but obviously different os) and do backup and restore? OCD kinda kicks in and I really like how I organize my files. Thank you.
  16. I like listening to my music through my roku/emby setup. However, I don't need to know how the artist is while listening. I was wondering if there is some way to set up a virtualization like on windows media player? I can wait and my roku will go to it's screen saver, but I would like to make a choice. Or even display the lyrics on screen, all of my music files have the lyrics embedded.

    what is "Download & Sync"?

    I installed the latest beta and it may be a coincidence but emby has been filling a sync folder with 10GB of something. This folder is on my root disk which is not meant to hold data and is only 32GB. I looked through the server management pages and could not find anywhere to set this folder's location. I saw a management section called Download and Sync. It had one strange entry with thousands of something. I deleted that entry and hopefully my problem will go away. What does Download and Sync mean? I do all my downloading myself and put the downloads in my media folders.
  18. I'm running the emby server on my ubuntu 16.04 server. It has worked well a long time. I just did a "service emby-server restart" and I got a crash that looks like this ... $ service emby-server status ● emby-server.service - Emby Server is a personal media server with apps on just about every device.

    Emby Server 3.4

    Hello, I noticed that this release did not appeared on the RPM Repo. Since it was mentioned that the RPM Repo is deprecated, I tried to install manually the RPM reported on the download pages, but it's failing on CentOS 6: --> Running transaction check ---> Package emby-server.x86_64 0: will be updated ---> Package emby-server.x86_64 0: will be an update --> Processing Dependency: libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.14)(64bit) for package: emby-server- --> Processing Dependency: libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.15)(64bit) for package: emby-server- --> Processing Dependency: libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.16)(64bit) for package: emby-server- --> Processing Dependency: libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.17)(64bit) for package: emby-server- --> Processing Dependency: libm.so.6(GLIBC_2.15)(64bit) for package: emby-server- --> Finished Dependency Resolution Error: Package: emby-server- (/emby-server-rpm_3.4.1.0_x86_64) Requires: libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.15)(64bit) Error: Package: emby-server- (/emby-server-rpm_3.4.1.0_x86_64) Requires: libm.so.6(GLIBC_2.15)(64bit) Error: Package: emby-server- (/emby-server-rpm_3.4.1.0_x86_64) Requires: libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.16)(64bit) Error: Package: emby-server- (/emby-server-rpm_3.4.1.0_x86_64) Requires: libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.14)(64bit) Error: Package: emby-server- (/emby-server-rpm_3.4.1.0_x86_64) Requires: libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.17)(64bit) Maybe this one can work on CentOS7 only?
  20. I use emby along with an rclone mounted google drive and every time it scans the library for new media, it takes a lot of time and bandwidth as well. Now, that's fine for regular use, but, I want to move my server to another computer. And, it looks like I need to re-scan everything and last time, it took 3-4 full days to do that. Is there a better way to migrate the metadata along with the server? I tried storing the metadata along with the media items. But, on testing with a few folders, it seems to be replacing the old nfo files and metadata with new ones after scanning the media again. Is it supposed to do that?

    Server Recommendation

    Hey Guys, I am new here. I intend to run emby server for a shop. I have 8 iPads running, 1 smart tv and another client running on the server. The 8 iPads will be running either videos or streaming music. By default the iPads will be running video ads repeatedly. The Smart TV will be running Ads continuously and the client on the server will only be streaming music continuously. What sort of server do I need? Do I still need a GPU. As for content, it doesn't change often, I know there is an offline mode but it is still beta. Do I need a good router for the WIFI as well. Thanks in advanced for any feedback.

    New Server Build Sanity Check

    So, I've been running my Emby server off of an old HP Pavilion for far too long now and I want to build something that'll allow multiple streams (preferably up to 10), excellent transcoding, and be able to handle all the peripheral tasks that come with adding content to the server. Downside, I don't have the funds to build the best thing ever. After perusing this forum for tips and suggestions, I've narrowed things down to the following build, and wanted to get some feedback and see if this will at least be close to getting what I want: CPU: Intel Core i5-8500 Desktop Processor Mobo: GIGABYTE Z370P D3 Case: Corsair Carbide Series 200R Compact ATX Case PSU: Corsair CX Series 550 Watt 80 Plus Bronze Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper RR-212E-20PK-R2 LED CPU Cooler with PWM Fan RAM: Kingston HyperX FURY 8GB Kit (2x4GB) SSD for OS, etc.: SanDisk SSD PLUS 240GB OS: Windows 10 Home Edition What am I skimping on? What am I spending too much money on? I have also never built a computer before so I really have no idea what I'm doing. Any advice at all would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  23. To whom it may concern, I'm running Emby Server version on Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard. The problem that I'm having, while minor, is still annoying. First a little background on my Folder arrangement — which is necessary to illustrate the problem. On my sever I have a folder called Media, under which I have several sub-folders — each of which is a network share — named Books, Films, Images, Music, Shows and Video, respectively. Under both the Films and the Shows sub-folders I have 27 additional sub-folders — each of which has a one-character name, starting with 'A' and continuing on through 'Z', with the 27th having a name of '#'. For films, for example, all of the titles that start with a number (e.g.—2 Days in the Valley (1996); 7th Voyage of Sinbad, The (1958); 9 (2009); 12 Angry Men (1957)) has a correspondingly named sub-folder under Media\Films\#, which contains its video file, and all of its other related metadata files. I do this for all of my movies: Titles starting with "A", are located in sub-folder A under Media\Films, titles starting with "B", are located in B, and so on, for the rest of the alphabet. No problem. Emby Server recognizes this structure, and handles the metadata for each movie in its self-titled sub-folder with absolutely no trouble. When it comes to TV Shows, on the other hand, Emby Server is not so accommodating! As mentioned earlier, my Shows sub-folder has the same arrangement as my Films sub-folder (i.e.—sub-folders named "A" through "Z", plus "#") — however, Emby Server treats each of the "A" through "Z", and the "#", sub-folders as though it were the primary repository for a TV Show! Even though there are other sub-folders within each of the "A" through "Z" sub-folders for actual TV Shows, Emby Server still place images and .nfo files directly into the "A" through "Z" sub-folders! Plus, when I go into the Emby Metadata Manager, the "A" through "Z" sub-folders are themselves identified as TV Shows! For example, sub-folder "L" is designated as the resting place for The L-Word, sub-folder "Z" for Dragon Ball Z, and so on. Deleting the files and changing the designations in the Metadata Manager does no good, as Emby Server simply changes them back and re-adds the files! I have to "lock" each of these sub-folders to prevent Emby Server from re-applying the designations — of course, this has the undesired side-effect of disabling metadata updates in all of the sub-folders that reside therein (with each sub-folder containing an actual TV Show)! Also, this problem has appeared in all of the versions of the Emby Server that I have used (I started, years ago, with, what I think was, version 1.something). I find it odd that no one else appears to be having the same problem. I doubt that I'm the only one who has this folder arrangement. In any case, thanks for an otherwise nice product.

    Casting to multiple devices

    Currently I’m trying to get a media server set up to play corporate messages and videos around the plant. I’ve managed to set up Emby a powerful Intel Xeon PC, and I’ve been able to cast a video file to one of our Panasonic smart tvs. However, this is not exactly the ideal situation. Ideally I want to be able to play a single folder, with multiple video files inside, and play it on a constant loop to the 8 TVs around the plant. Is this possible in Emby? Currently I’m only able to cast one file at a time, to one TV at a time...

    Server stuck on indexing

    Hi there, i admit to be a new user and i signed up for the premiere monthly package to try emby up again my plex server. I have a large library and maybe this is related to my problem. That said my server has been stuck on indexing at 71.7 percent for two weeks now. I have restarted the app, the server many times but still gets stuck in the same spot. Where I am not familiar with emby i was wondering if perhaps i have something setup wrong. i wanted to attach the logs but when i click to download the lastest log it says its 4.3gb is that possible? Anyways i would be very interested to see it functioning properly. As it stands when i use the player i can see shows in the list no artwork and nothing will play Im assuming its because the server is hung on something. I will happy provide the logs if someone can explain to this newb of emby how to correctly download the logs. emby is running on a osx dedicated server with the latest software and latest production version of emby. Thanks in advance
