  1. It;s probably something my end that needs tweaking, as I have not seen anyone else report this, so I am hoping someone can help. Emby server is installed on my laptop, which is connected via wifi to my server. In the web client, Emby will not show all the covers. Refreshing the browser does not help. I am using chrome, but have tried it in IE11, which doesn't want to show any covers https://www.dropbox.com/s/q22gws762x43u66/Screenshot%202015-06-26%2019.17.55.png?dl=0 You'll notice in the next image, that it successfully shows one other image https://www.dropbox.com/s/vi7tcqou3c1ls8f/Screenshot%202015-06-26%2019.24.00.png?dl=0

    Cache file cleanup failed

    Hi there all, I have my emby server set up on my local server but have the ImagesbyName and Emby folders set up on networked drives. The cache is local. I keep getting the message "Cache file cleanup failed" The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error Emby Server Version 3.0.5621.4 is running on a Windows7 64 bit machine. Nothing special but this has just started happening. The C:\Users\Tanamur\AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Server\cache tells me there is a problem. Any suggestions or should I just delete the cache folder and rbuild? Thanks in advance
  3. Hi, I would like to request that the log path be made customisable in the server dashboard.
  4. I just finished building my server and getting storage pools setup, etc... Now I would like to get Emby setup the way I want and I am not sure the best way to go about it. First, a little about my setup and desired use case: My server is also going to serve as my main HTPC connected to the TV in my living room. I will be running emby server and emby classic on WMC. I will have movies, ripped TV discs (no live TV or DVR), photos, and games (for now only emulators, but potentially windows/steam games later). The server is going to run 24/7 serving up my emby server within the house as well as remotely to some family members or myself while on the road. It also serves up my data files for photography work, lightroom photo library organization, web design work, documents, etc... My wife and daughter will also be controlling the HTPC front end of the computer to watch movies and such. So, to that end, I would like the front end that they deal with to be run under a windows user without admin rights so that they are less likely to screw something up. I would also like to have the computer start up directly into the emby interface if possible so that my daughter doesn't have to find it if she wants to watch a movie after the computer has restarted. So, my question is, how should I go about installing emby server and emby classic? Say I have two windows user accounts: ADMIN with admin rights, and VIEWER without admin rights. VIEWER will be used to interact with emby classic and watch movies, play games, etc... ADMIN will be used to remote desktop into the server as needed to make adjustments, etc... (I have already made the adjustments to allow concurrent remote desktop sessions.) Should I install the server under the ADMIN user or the VIEWER user? And then, which should I install emby classic under? And, should I run emby server as a service or as a program? (What are the pros/cons to running emby server as a service vs as a program?) Second, how can I make the computer boot up and automatically start up into the emby classic interface? Thanks for the help.

    Dev server not updating

    With the last couple of dev updates, my server software isn't updating, it just loads the last version installed. The only way I can get it to update to the latest version, is by installing the beta over the top

    Has Anything changed in the latest .81+ releases that might have broken pseudotv. Before the upgrade it seemed to work fine, now however it just says it can't play any files then crashes out. I don't have the logs at the moment as i am away. I was just wondering if anyone else had used / noticed this? Thanks
  7. Title pretty much says it all. If I start watching a new show on the chromecast as far as other devices are concerned it has never been watched. Doesn't seem to matter whether i turn the TV off or stop it from android Server can see it playing, and trakt can see the progress. Server version (windows) 3.0.5597.1 latest android. Thanks
  8. I use the Browser app to view media on my Windows Server. About last Thursday (4/16/17) or so, I saw that it did an update. After that, I was no longer able to access my server. The web app brings up the webpage unavailable page, and Media Browser says it cannot connect to the server. I tried downloading and installing both the release and beta, which both have the same version number: v3.0.5582.4, but installing them seems to fail, and gets me this dialog: Could definitely use some help here. Haven't had a working media system since last week.

    Episode Showing Missing

    I recently reviewed the missing episode report and noticed one of the episodes I ripped quite a while ago is showing "missing." I verified that the episode is still in the folder and plays fine. I also attempted to run the "refresh" option in the season folder and "scan media library" scheduled task on the server, but neither resolve the problem. Is it possible to force a full rescan of a series or season? Server Version: Version 3.0.5572.0 OS: Windows 8.1 If it matters: the media is stored locally on the server, and I use UNC paths for it. I have no idea when this problem first presented, so I included the most recent log which should include when I scanned the library. I've put the screenshots in spoiler tags so the post takes up less room. server-63564048000.txt

    Limited Bandwith

    Hello @all, I have an Upload speed of 6mbps but Emby only uses 4mbps no matter what transcoding and playback settings I choose. So, I tried a lot, including VPN access to the LAN, prioritisation of process and traffic but nothing worked so far. The google chrome browser is the culprit, it uses only half of the available bandwith of the media browser server! When using firefox it uses the whole bandwidth and so I have no annoying stuttering anymore. Anyone here who had the same problem? Thanks @EmbyTeam - You are the best!
  12. Good day, I am new to this ... just purchased the Roku 3 and installed MBC as well as installed MB Version 3.0.5557.0 to my computer. So the problem that I am having is every time that I try to play a TV episode or movie from my library MBC crashes and kicks me back out to the Roku home screen. Please help! P.S. - I have no log to attach because according to my event viewer there are no events listed for Media Center Cheers
  13. Dear coders, admins, et al., I enjoy Media Browser and have been using it for a long time. This is my first post: it's a critique (a nicer way of saying "criticism") of the new and evolving interface. The Media Browser Classic interface is evolving in a direction that I dislike. By default it attempts to be very fancy with posters flying all over the place, but this sacrifices usability for mere eye candy. For finding media to play (the true purpose of a media player, IMO), this pales in comparison to the dense, innate usability of a windows-centric, mouse and keyboard, text-based list interface. The interface I just described most efficiently supports my expectations. My expectations are to (1) quickly find one of a handful of new movies that have been loaded to my hard drive, or (2) find an old movie that I want to re-watch. By "new" I mean that the directory entry (e.g. "The Matrix (1999)") or the movie file (e.g. "The Matrix (1999)\Matrix.mkv" since I may have upgraded the file) has a newer, modified timestamp. By "old" I mean that I want to search for it by name, alphabetically. I know where everything is. I have my movies in separate folders that describe the source (DVD collection, movies ripped, movies downloaded), the type (DVD, Bluray), etc. What I want is a sticky option to put EVERYTHING in list view and I want it to survive version upgrades and installs. I suggest you provide a drop-down that selects the default view then afterward, the user, at their discretion, can configure different views here and there where appropriate. To find new movies, you can provide an option to list "New Movies" and I want to configure (1) how many days or weeks old constitutes "new" and (2) the maximum # of movies to list therein. I want the option to drop into one of my scan folders where I can use pg-up, pg-down, use the mouse scroll wheel or hit the first letter of the movie to QUICKLY find the movie. Crucially, I want to configure multiple top-level entry points that allow me to enter the same directory but with different sort orders: I want to click on "DVD Movie Collection by Timestamp" and enter D:\Movies.DVD.Collection, sorted by timestamp. I can then find my newest movies. Give me that and you can throw out the "New Movies" entry point. But I ALSO want to click on "DVD Movie Collection by Name" and enter the folder sorted alphabetically. If I feel like perusing by genre (for the rare occasion when I don't have a specific movie I intend to watch), I want to click on "Genre" and "Sci-Fi by Timestamp" or "Sci-Fi by Name". To summarize: I care not a whit (OK, perhaps one or two whits) about a fancy interface because it's INEFFICIENT. I want an EFFICIENT, FAST interface where I can quickly find the movie I desire to watch. Go ahead and make fancy interfaces for other devices and other purposes: it's important. But for people like myself, PLEASE provide a quick, list-based, keyboard and mouse wheel, windows-centric interface that can be made the default, is sticky and is recursive against every view and subfolder.
  14. Not too worried since I don't have my MB server always running, but I received the following message from my antivirus today: OS Attack: GNU Bash CVE-2014-6271 Symantec writeup: http://www.symantec.com/security_response/attacksignatures/detail.jsp?asid=27907 Any advice or remarks would be greatly appreciated. I only know enough to be dangerous, and I have little experience in GNU or Unix. environment: Windows 8.1 Pro (x64) - MB Server 3.0.5518.7 -
  15. Hi everyone I tried to update my Media Browser Server to the newest Version v3.0.5518.7 from the previous stable version. But everytime it shows me the 404 error and tries to connect to my local inetpub directory (see the picture attached). Obviously in this path is no Media Browser installation so it fails to load the dashboard and all the other stuff. I tried a complete new installation and everything else, running as a service or direct as an application (the application is loading everytime normal, showing the splash Screen and so on), everytime the same error. I am running Windows Server 2012 R2 with the essentials role and of course i have Websites running on port 80/443 through IIS. I tried to stop these websites as well as IIS but it did not work. I can not imagine where the mistake could be, also every version of Media Browser since 2014 runs perfectly also with my configuration on this server. I hope you can give me a tip where my problem could be.
  16. I've just noticed over the past few days, if I add a new show to my collection the not all of the images are automatically added. Series images seem to be ok, but specifically season posters aren't downloaded. If I go and manually browse for them, or even do an advanced refresh on the series metadata everything is properly added. MBS Version 3.0.5518.7
  17. Did a quick search and didn't find anything. So I recently installed 3.0.5518.0 Beta of windows mediabrowser server and I'm finding a weird bug in the "Metadata Manager". When I go in to change the primary image of a collection for an auto boxsets plugin created collection, the primary image always reverts back to the primary image of the first asset in the collection. This doesn't matter if I go to the image flag, browse for the image using the "browse image" button and download from an online source, or click on the cloud button under the primary image. After I restart the server, the primary image always reverts. Art, banner and logo images don't seem to be affected. I always hit save after in the metadata tab of the collection. Am I doing something wrong? Or is this a bug in the beta? Anyone else seeing this? To reproduce the issue: - Goto Metadata manager - Click on a collection under collections - Click the images tab - Click the cloud button under the primary image poster - Click download on a poster from an external source such as theMovieDb - Click the metadata button and hit save - Goto settings and restart the mediabrowser server or just use mediabrowser for awhile / re-log in - Click on the collection again and watch the primary poster art revert to the primary image of the first asset in the collection Also does mediabrowser use an external bug tracker like JIRA or something that we can do a search in? Just a noob question that I haven't really found an answer for atm. I'll post some logs shortly when I get home. I don't have the cover art plugin installed but I do have auto box-sets plugin installed. TIA
  18. Would like to try out MediaBrowser server and compare to Plex Media Server, My requirement is that it should run in a non-admin user account,. On Plex I use an admin Account to install but run the service in a non-admin account I have not been able to see how i can make that distinction between install and run for MediaBrowser. From what I have read it appears the service needs to run in an admin account. I did search the forum and read a number of topics and have not been able to find one that showed I could achieve what I want to do Thanks
  19. Just a punt here but anyone else recently seen a change in their server behaviour? The first issue is user lock. After an indeterminate time of inactivity the user session will be locked even though there is no password. In "Power Options" I have "Require a password on wakeup" disabled. It should be noted that I have no password set for the admin user. I have also checked the screen saver settings and "On resume, display logon screen" is also disabled. I have gone through my entire power options menu and cannot find anything that might cause it. Another thing I have noticed is the server restarting itself early in the morning even with no patches installed. Just some weird sh1t happening all of a sudden. I have had the same PC for a number of years now. Any ideas?
  20. I thought for sure this question would've been asked countless times before, but I came up empty-handed after a handful of searches and about 20 minutes of forum browsing incl. the FAQ... I figured it would be easiest to just ask. For the Windows server, is it possible to specify a directory location to which the Media Browser 3 server application should be installed? I've been a long-time user (and I love it so much, I always look forward to the next big update from you guys) through thick and thin. And, it may have changed since I actually did my last install, which I believe was sometime in the middle of 2014... But the last time I installed, I did not see an option to specify where to install to. From what I can tell, it installs to %appdata%\MediaBrowser-server\ by default (which is of course in the user's profile folder) - I am hopeful that this can be changed, as I'm actually on a server machine and would love to organize my installations in a more meaningful way. Thanks!
  21. This might be a dumb question but I don't seem to be able to find how to play an entire season of a TV series when using the Windows 8.1 store app on my surface pro 3 or on my windows phone, is there way to do this? Same goes for playing random episodes of a season. I can easily do this in MB Classic by simply hitting play on a season folder, then selecting either play all or play random. I have ensured all my mediabrowser installs are updated to the latest release. Any help would be great.

    99% CPU and errors in log

    Just recently MB3 has had almost 99% CPU utilization. I have to end the process and restart the server. This has been going on for the last week or so. I'm not sure if it has to do with MB+ that I recently installed, but I uninstalled it and I'm still having the issues. I have a large media library, so I'm not sure if that is causing the problem or not as well. I'm on I was getting DLNA errors and subtitle download errors, so I turned off both of those features as well, but I'm still having problems with the server being unresponsive because it is processing something in the background. A reboot solves the problem, but not for very long. This last one it was only about 3 hours before the CPU utilization crept back to 99%. server-63556131907.txt
  23. can you provide specific examples, perhaps with screenshots of the folders as well as what you see in the web interface? thanks.
  24. I updated to Windows 8 last week, unfortunately to find that DVD is not playing any more. I am looking for a Blu-ray player, at the same time it should be a DVD player. Is that possible?
  25. Hello Guys, I didn't know where to place this so I placed it here. If it needs to be moved, please feel free to do so. Alright, Let me get to it. I just decided to get an XBOX as an extender to use with Windows Media Center and Media Browser Classic. As we all know XBOX does not play MKV files. All my files are MKVs. I would like to write a script or use an existing one with minor modification to mass convert all my movies and tv series from MKV to MP4. I am not sure what I do know about MKV to MP$ to be true so I am asking for some help. I have read several threads and everyone has their own take on this. This is what I know so far. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong. MP4 must only contain AAC or AC3 tracks to be compatible with all devices. Converting MKV to MP4 is a resource hog and it is super slow. To speed the process MKV can just change the container to MP4 which is super fast. A lot of MKVs are encoded in H.264 which means the video part does not need to be re-encoded. It can just be copied to the new container. Also there will be no quality lost. Now if you have an MKV file with a DTS track, you may want to change the video container but remux the audio to AC3 or AAC. But AC3 requires the user to have a receiver. Otherwise, it will be force to be transcoded. AAC is the most common track. It will playback in all devices. Someone suggest to add an AAC track as well as AC3 to all MP4s to ensure that the file does not require transcoding ever. Also if someone has already done that, by all means, share the info. Edit: I would not have a chance to proof read so please ignore all grammar. I have to run to a meeting. Thanks,
