    TV Everywhere

    I would love to see Emby support for TV Everywhere. Is this something that could be done?

    Sort Movies Display

    Hi, Is it possible to show, below the title and year of the movie, the value of the sort order chosen? For example, if the movies are sorted by parental rating, below the title and year would appear the parental rating (PG-13,...). Thank you very much.
  3. I'd like to be able to add multiple paths for libraries but have duplicate between the two paths be handled as alternate versions. For example d:\Videos\ + e:\Videos\ are added to 'Movies' These two drives have effectively a mirror (rsynced daily) and I would like to see Emby add both paths for files and if there is a read error on the first drive tried, go for the second (or third etc) Simple example, but more likely these paths will be network locations and more likely to be disconnected etc. Another scenario might be a local and a remote path, would prefer the local but if that goes offline etc, try the remote. Emby will already be scanning these files so something like a 'first order, second order' tag on the db and then a try list in the player...
  4. I currently host my Emby server on my Netgear ReadyNAS 3204. It's a wonderful device, but when "live" transcoding is triggered, playback stutters and halts because it simply isn't designed for this task. It would be great if I could offload the transcoding job over the network to another machine that has a more powerful encoder/decoder/graphics card to process with. I know this can be done with other tools (like custom-configured Handbrake installs). Due to my network structure and accessibility firewall rules, moving the Emby install to another machine for this task would be extremely complicated, and I would prefer to keep it where the data libraries are stored for sheer performance reasons. I just so happen to have an always-on blackbox Windows-based encoding machine, linked to my ReadyNAS via speedy 10GbE, and it's a shame I can't leverage it's capabilities. Having this as a premiere feature would be totally fine. In fact, it would be a selling point. So either a using a common data share with a remote app/service (like this example with Handbrake), or built-in support for distributed rendering to send transcoding jobs out to a network service you create (maybe using the transcoding code in Emby packaged into a Windows service?) would be immensely helpful and I'm sure it would create more configuration possibilities for others.

    Send bulk message

    It would be nice to have an option to bulk message all clients on the active device dashboard
  6. What I'm wanting is the ability to run multiple Emby servers that share the same dataset and configuration. Ie, if a user logs into Emby1, Emby2, or Emby3 they won't know which one they are on. Other methods can handle load balancing. Now, I've looked at LDAP and this is actually a good start, BUT, keeping the settings synced up wont work because Emby is just making a new users based on LDAP auth, so the need for a synced backend data is key.

    Sub user Option

    Within the primary user having the option to add sub users, as on Netflix, I have users outside my network and I wanted to share only one account with the primary user and from that user having the option to add sub users so that the primary user person share your family with your family
  8. Some common shortcuts, such as fast forward 10 seconds, back 10 seconds, adjust the sound and so on. When watching video on YouTube, I got used to the shortcut keys controlling the operation of video. Thanks
  9. I never really thought of this before but I had some missed recordings and it'd be nice if this was added. Thanks.
  10. This would have been terrific so that I and other users could easily find common errors (such as the error of retrieving metadata for series). Also, you don't get 100 people write about the same problem Hope this can make yours easier because it will make my life easier! Mvh HelpDesk employee

    groups for users

    I think it would be nice to be able to create groups in Emby for access control. similar to parental control except a group could also specify level of server control, allowing deletion of content, etc... You could then add users to a group and no longer have to go through to check each users permission individually. This would also make editing permissions easier as you only have to do it to a group instead of to each user. I wasn't able to find this topic so a link if i have created a duplicate would be appreciated.
  12. Wouldn't it be nifty to be able to use your Emby server as a "viewing party"? As in, you and some friends pick a movie to watch, and then once all the users are connected and logged in, you push the movie to their sessions and things are synchronized. Play/pause commands are sent to everyone involved, as well as skip/rewind (or maybe the ability to designate an optional "host" user who controls that so things can't get out of hand lol). Things like volume remain user-specific (e.g. if someone knocks at the door, you can turn your volume off and talk to them without your movie being heard in the background, or your friends toying with the volume controls lol). I recognize that each person's Internet connection quality would be a HUGE factor, as would intermittent issues therein, but that's obviously a requirement of viewing the stuff in general. You'd just be "capped" at the performance of your group's worst connection really, and if it gets that bad, they just leave. I dont think thats something that would require accounting to make viable - that would be their internet connection's problem... But I just can't help but picture it. Even if your husband or wife is traveling for work, or if you have friends online in all different areas of the country or world, or if you're in a long distance relationship, or you just wanted to show someone a funny scene... The possibilities are there. Maybe some chat, voice or even webcam capability would be cool to integrate too (though that's just as easily done with Skype or Facetime, etc, so the benefits-per-complexity is low). I would be willing to donate heavily to a plugin like this.... But what do you guys think? It has some viable uses, if you have sufficient bandwidth with each user? I think it'd take a big disclaimer "you'll ALL need some great broadband internet to make it work" tho. But for those of us who invest heavily in our home theaters (and -- perhaps -- not so much into travel or our social lives), this might be a fun thing. I like the sound of something like an Emby Party.
  13. I would like to see an option to use your own photos as a screensaver. Maybe even an option to point to a specific folder set aside for just that. In Windows Media Center, I pointed to a folder with just photos for the screensaver.
  14. As there is already a feature to restrict (block/allow all media with defined custom tag) media “per user” why not expand this feature to be able to create libraries and custom collections with media containing custom tag(s).

    FR: Maintenance Announcement

    Is there a way to create a spot up top when users login they can see a note like "all Simpsons episodes finished/movie requests completed" etc? Trying to find an easy way to notify users of changes without having to text everyone.
  16. It would be nice if collections, specifically the manually created variety, would be linked via a unique ID associated with the movie title, instead of the physical file system path to the movie file. My reasoning for this request is that I routinely go through my library and replace movies with a better quality version (eg: 720p to 1080p), or fix a directory structure error via a rename or a move to a different directory, etc.. So ultimately what happens is the path to the file changes. The result of this updating/renaming is that the movie losses its membership in the collection because the path to the file changed. So I have to try and remember that the movie was a part of a collection and re-add the title once emby knows about its new path. Emby already appears to track the movies in a library based on the title and/or some unique ID. I'm assuming this because I've noticed that if I add a movie to my library, watch it, and then rename the movie files, emby still knows that I played that particular movie title. It would be nice if emby used this same unique ID when creating collections. That way I can replace movie files and rename directories to my hearts content, and as long as emby still resolves the movie to the same title, it wont break the collection membership. Hopefully this make sense.
  17. For example, on Android TV they are fixed to almost the center of the screen: But I would like to move them all the way down to the bottom of the screen like I do on this video player:
  18. Hi, Just wondering if Emby has Tv Everywhere integration yet?? Thanks
  19. Hello! I recently converted over from the Plex universe and, so far, am very happy. One small thing that I do miss from Plex is the ability to mouse-over the in-progress streams on the dashboard and see details like: source/destination bitrate (I think this was more via Tautulli, but still nice to have) source/destination resolution subtitle status current bandwidth I see that there's a "view playback info" button that appears, only during transcoding, but the popup simple tells you the obvious - that it is transcoding. My apologies if this has been brought up before. Thanks-
  20. Custom Spotlight section, just like already in hallowed theme that poped up on Android app, but admin can name it and choose what media to show in section. Examples: Top 10 movies, Movies of the month, Recommended by admin, Most watched, etc.... Let us choose what to spotlight, shouldn't be much effort i think and spooky section was really nice.
  21. I'm not sure if MediaInfo is used for movie length, or if it's pulled from the internet metadata. What I do know is that when you switch between versions of a movie, the length stays the same in Emby. Here, it shows 2:27 based on the theatrical version: But when I switch to the director's cut it still shows 2:27 even though this version is 2:50: I'd love if this updated based on the version of the movie I've got selected. Or, if you're using internet metadata in that spot, then maybe it'd instead make more sense to add actual length based on file down in the bottom Media Info sections. Just as a section under "Video" for each file.

    Custom theme support

    Custom theme support in all app. https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/78588-are-seasonal-themes-still-a-thing/?p=802071
  23. Is it possible to add the functionality to stretch content that has a ratio of 4:3 for playing back on wide screens? Kodi has the option built in to do this and its very helpful
  24. I did a check could not find a similar thread sorry if I have missed it. I keep waiting for the return of zoom when playing my videos, It use to be a function but got taken out sometime ago and has never returned. Any chance it will be coming back. Hate not using nearly a third of my big screen TV seems a waste really!!??

    Zoom Mode PLZ

    Back when I could still get WMC working I could choose different zoom modes to make letter box movies fill my ultra wide monitor. Without this feature letterbox movies end up running in a little box with black space on all 4 sides. Please give me a zoom feature, possibly even have it remember per movie so so it stays the same. I would gladly purchase this product if it had this feature
