On Arch Linux, Emby is using a basic ffmpeg by default. Now we have started publishing an Arch Linux package which allows easy installation of the same ffmpeg that is included in most of our other server installation packages and which is optimized for tone mapping, hardware acceleration and a number of other things in combination with Emby Server. Installation Download first to avoid signature issues, then install via pacman: wget https://mediabrowser.github.io/embytools/emby-ffmpeg-bin-2022_05_07-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst sudo pacman -U emby-ffmpeg-bin-2022_05_07-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst Please restart Emby server after installation: systemctl restart emby-server.service
Alright so recently I had a crash because my OS SSD filled up. I run a 60gb SSD (which ive been meaning to upgrade) and I have always had emby store metadata and pictures and such within the media file locations. I also offload the transcoding temp location because at any given day its floating ~15-20gb of usage. I noticed the drive had 16gb of transcoding files for some reason. Reviewing my settings I tried to set my transcoding temp location and it throws the below error: "Emby Server requires write access to this folder. Please ensure write access and try again." System specs: Supermicro X8DTL 2x Intel Xeon E5645 24gb DDR3 ECC Reg mem 4x 6TB seagate Iron Wolf 60gb SSD Arch 5.6.6-arch1-1 Emby 126.96.36.199 I run a pretty simple drive setup, with all the drives mounted in /storage/ with their SD$ name as the mount point: Emby owns the storage directory, and all of the subsequent mount points and drives. I usually run a chmod 777 -R * and a chown emby:emby -R * I have always done this since the olden days of media browser (og user woot woot!) as I've found it prevents any issues with emby downloading metadata and subtitles etc / drwxrwxrwx+ 11 emby emby 4096 Sep 6 2019 storage /storage/ drwxrwxrwx+ 11 emby emby 4096 Sep 6 2019 . drwxr-xr-x 20 root root 4096 Jan 25 15:53 .. drwxrwxrwx 7 emby emby 4096 Apr 12 08:28 sda drwxrwxrwx 4 emby emby 4096 Mar 21 13:46 sdb drwxrwxrwx+ 2 emby emby 4096 Feb 19 2019 sdc drwxrwxrwx 6 emby emby 4096 May 23 13:57 sdd drwxrwxrwx+ 2 emby emby 4096 Feb 19 2019 sde drwxrwxrwx 4 emby emby 4096 Jun 7 2019 sdf drwxrwxrwx+ 2 emby emby 4096 Feb 19 2019 sdg drwxrwxrwx+ 2 emby emby 4096 Feb 19 2019 sdh drwxrwxrwx+ 3 emby emby 4096 May 1 2019 sdi /storage/sda/ drwxrwxrwx 7 emby emby 4096 Apr 12 08:28 . drwxrwxrwx+ 11 emby emby 4096 Sep 6 2019 .. drwxrwxrwx 1131 emby emby 192512 May 11 07:31 Movies drwxrwxrwx 147 emby emby 12288 Mar 15 18:42 TV drwxrwxrwx 3 emby emby 4096 Apr 19 03:00 backups drwxrwxrwx 2 emby emby 4096 Apr 12 08:28 metadata drwxrwxrwx 2 emby emby 6045696 Apr 22 07:24 transcoding-temp It appears that new metadata is not saving to media folders despite the checked options (see screenshot) Also a screenshot of the error has been added. It doesnt seem to matter where I set the storage to, if it be one of the 6tb drives or even a local directory, although it will let me put the transcoding temp as the folder above the default location (/var/lib/private/emby/transcoding-temp) Also I dont think there is an issue with the ACL for storage getfacl storage/ # file: storage/ # owner: emby # group: emby user::rwx group::rwx #effective:r-x group:emby:rwx #effective:r-x mask::r-x other::r-x default:user::rwx default:group::rwx default:group:emby:rwx default:mask::rwx default:other::rwx I'm sure if I got drunk and gave it a good 2 or 3 hours I could figure it out but I have zero free time right now. Any help would be very appreciated!!! +Edit 1, codeblocks seem to have failed
I am on Arch Linux, installed via the AUR. Many tutorials online show an "Add Media Library" button, however it seems to have been replaced with a system that begins a media scan? I do not want emby to be scanning my system, although it seems to be doing that already. I have terabytes of data, including what is on an external device. The media that I wanted to view in Emby is on an external device, and I changed the user and group of those videos to emby, hoping that Emby might pick them up in its scan while I try to figure out how to specifically add those files. I don't want Emby to scan my system. I want to add a folder or specific files to Emby. Anything I can do?
