  1. There are a ton of Android boxes being sold today running Android mobile, including Xiaomi TV's, and Xiaomis new Xiaomi 4 SE box. We need a way to use a remote on the mobile version of Android for the thousands of people who dont want to buy a Google certified Android TV box for 3 times the price.
  2. Luke I know that this request has been made several times but I think it would be something beneficial for everyone. Most of the movies I have are mkv but for the musical concerts I prefer to use the ISO format for the menus and song selection. With the EWMC app I have it solved with the configuration of the app and with the support of Powerdvd 15 but in the app for Roku and android it is not possible to reproduce the ISO's. It would be very complicated if the server could do it with those app ?.
  3. Ive written this feature request in a user story format, feel free to let me know if you need any additional details As an administrator i want to be able to provide announcements or notifications to users of my server for things such as scheduled maintenance, announcements, etc. Preferably I would like this to be a splash type screen after user login. This will allow administrators to notify users of the system without needing user specific information (e.g. email addresses) Below is a reference post in a separate thread: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/68741-login-disclaimer-new-line/
  4. I'd like to see catch-up support in live tv. Many iptv providers support up to 7 days of catch-up. See http://niklabs.com/catchup-settings/ for a quick overview of the attribs in a m3u.

    AppleTV 4K Client

    Feature Request. I tried searching on this, but don't know what it's called. When I'm in my Movies, I don't see where I can do a fast scroll that usually located on the right side of the screen that would allow me to select movies that start with a # A B C . . Z. When you have over 700 movies, it takes time to scroll using the Siri remote to find moves. Can this be added?
  6. Hi, After upgrading to v4, I made a mistake in creating duplicated new media libraries by clicking the Ok multiple times when it didn't seem to respond. Then I deleted the duplicated ones thinking the problem would be solved. Nope. While there is no more duplicated media libraries, all the earlier duplicated ones still appear in Metadata Manager and my home screen. I even deleted the new media library but all the duplicated media libraries are still in Metadata Manager and my home screen. For clarity's sake, here is a list of things that I've tried but nothing helped. 1. Delete duplicated media libraries 2. Delete the newly created media library 3. Scan all libraries and restart the Emby server (done multiple times) 4. Restore a backup done before upgrading to v4 (no longer a Premium user) If it's simply because Restore works only for Premium users, the solution is easy. I just want to make sure that before renewing my Premium membership. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks! Aaron
  7. My feature request is an option to link crossover episodes over multiple series (for example the actual DC series or the Dick Wolf franchise, and others)! I know that TheTVDB has no metadata for crossover episodes, the information is only inside the plot. So it would be great to get metadata fields inside the episodes to link it manually. Perhaps with pulldown menus where I can choose from my already scraped content (field "TV series", then "Season", then "Episode", then "before / after"). And after that the crossover is shown in all series which are involved (like "C1" or something else").

    Images via URL

    I would like to able to insert images from an URL instead of having to save it then upload it.
  9. Greetings I am new to Emby and if this feature is already in here, I have not been able to find it. I have found the "Block items with tags" but I need a "allow items with tags" option. I have a library with over 4000 items and my kids only have access to about 200 of them so having to tag 3800 items is really not going to be pleasant nor feasible. I currently use Plex and wanted to possibly move to Emby, Without this feature, it is definitely a deal breaker. If there is a way to do this (without moving the 200 items to a completely different file structure), or not a feature that will be implemented, please let me know... Thanks Brian

    Resume Shuffle

    I would like to request an option to resume shuffle play of a series. Too many times I put a show on shuffle / random but then either turn the TV etc, Then the only options when coming back to the TV is Shuffle again or selecting an episode (often having to rewatch the same episodes you just watched). It would be good if you could just resume a shuffle play, i assume theres some sort of random order generated upon shuffle, if it could just hold on to that / save it. Thanks
  12. Is there any way to get the Tray icon to change somehow when an Active Recording is in Progress? Having come from 14 years of Media Center, it was nice having the little red dot in the system tray to indicate a recording in progress, you don't always remember all the time slots you have recordings scheduled for, so now I never know if it's safe to do a reboot for any reason or not without launching the web interface and checking the guide for active recordings.

    It would be great if the notifications had an mqtt option.
  14. So, I've pretty much moved from plex at this point except for one thing... Emby is really just...not good at picking up shows on its own. It needs so much hand-holding to get the show to show up as the correct thing and it seems like Plex just does it magically almost all the time. I think I have a simple solution to smoothing this process out a little. When your scanner scans files, could you make it parse a space (0x20,0x255), a period (0x65), or an underscore (0x95) as all the same kind of delimiter? I think this is fundamentally what is separating the two things from finding things properly. It seems like if you take a file named something like silicon.valley.s05e01.720p.web.h264-tbs.mkv and put it in a folder with another random file it will pickup nothing. If you rename that files to "Silicon Valley S0501 720p.mkv" it will get it, but I'm honestly not doing that with literally thousands of episodes of TV. if you were to put that same file inside a folder just called Silicon Valley, it would get it. So, actually...come to think of it, as I'm typing...maybe the parsing of the file isn't even the issue because if it can read it when it's inside a folder of the same name then it must be using those delimiters. I dunno. Nonetheless....it seems like there's something going on here, either a bug or a feature, that needs to be looked at. Just take like 10 TV shows and throw them all in one folder and let it scan them as a library and it will give you nothing. Break them into their own folders and it will at least give you a folder with a blank page. I should be able to see the individual files if I put 100 single episodes into 1 folder and those episodes are not contiguous.

    Search by Tags

    I know this has been requested before but searching the forum returned literally nothing for some reason. This should have been added when tags were added, when can we expect to be able to search tags? As in, search for matching text found within tags?
  16. When browsing on the Roku app, I have my libraries along the top: Movies, TV Shows, etc, then going down the screen there is Continue Watching, Next Up, Latest Movies, etc. When selecting Movies for example, the next screen gives buttons at the top for all movies, genres, and others, below that there is the same again (or similar) Continue Watching, Next Up, etc. I've already seen this on the main menu, can I not just go directly to my full movie list? For me personally I don't need the other buttons at the top but they could stay where they are and just have the full movie list underneath? It's getting very repetitive having to go through two screens to get to my movies when it could just be one, and I've repeatedly had to explain to users that they need to select "Movies" at the top once they're in the Movies library (that's another thing, this text used to say "All Movies" which was much more self-explanatory, now it's a little confusing).
  17. Recent lifetime subscriber and I am very happy so far. Just trying to figure out which client will be best to standardize on for several TVs. The one thing preventing me from using Apple TVs is the lack of a real grid-style guide and mini-guide in the ATV client. I would love to see this feature added soon. Thanks!

    Actor Bios

    EBR closed the thread so I could not elaborate on it, I suggested adding TV/Movie credits to the character bio, not just the ones in my library for example Michael Keaton has been in several movies, maybe 50 or so... I have 2 movies with him in it...Beetlejuice & Spiderman: Homecoming Since I think he is a great actor I would like to buy other movies/TV shows with him in it I think it would be nice if the Emby team added his list of movies and tv shows he has been in to the bio...thats it. later on in the post I mentioned that Emby team could eventually link the movies and tv shows in the character bio to the Emby library and this is what EBR read and posted the following "We already show items in your library containing that actor." he missed the whole point to my suggestion: add all movies & TV credits to the bio, not just the ones I have in my library that might be my fault...maybe i didn't clearly say what I meant.. now if my request seems like its too much work for to little payoff, deny it....if its not worth your time, ignore it I know that the list of movie/TV shows might be a hassle to keep updating so It might not be feasable but it's only a suggestion..... thanks for your consideration Troy Bennett
  19. Sometimes after viewing a movie/TV show, there is an actor/actress that I was impressed with and want to know what else they have been in So like IMDB, and The Movie DB they have a list of credits of all their TV Show, Movie appearances... I think Emby should also have this in the characters bio... for example...I watch Spiderman: Homecoming the other day and realized I haven't seen Michael Keaton for a long time...since Beetlejuice, or Multiplicity so I went down to his bio picture and clicked it and it showed me information about him...where he was born, what city, a bit about him etc. typical for most bios, but it doesn't list any of his movies or TV shows I think it would be nice to see his other works in there as well and it wouldn't add a lot of hard drive space...i mean one nfo or xml file for credits... later on maybe you could link up that list of movie/TV show credits with what is in your library as well... I think the ability is there because it is listed in themoviedb.org API page not sure how good it is...but at least it looks like it is there...
  20. I would like to cut the opening sequence from my tv shows. Usually this is just the same title sequence used either by the entire series or season. Here is how I see it envisioned: cut the video into three parts. Beginning, title then end. The beginning and the end would be specified by another sequence number from: Firefly - S01E14 - The Message Bluray-1080p.mp4 to: Firefly - S01E14 SEQ1 - The Message Bluray-1080p.mp4 and Firefly - S01E14 SEQ2 - The Message Bluray-1080p.mp4 Those to will contain the main episode the first can be the before the title and the second after the title. Then create one file that is like: Firefly - S01 Title - The Message Bluray-1080p.mp4 that contains just the title sequence. Doing it this way would allow us to cut out a lot of overlap in video's thus saving space and allowing a new option from the interface to not play the Title at all and just watch the "meat" of the show if desired. If the title is at the beginning of the show then SEQ1 wouldn't be needed and only the SEQ2 file would be there. This could also be expanded to cover the credits, but those usually change as guest stars could be listed, but it could be another option that uses the same technique. It may not seem like much but cutting a one minute title out of 22 episodes would save 21 minutes of hard drive. With the amount of content I have that is significant value.
  21. Thought I saw a post earlier that the ability to create/manage a custom IPTV Channel order/list for the guide and to hide channels not wanted in the IPTV feed might be a 3.6+ feature. For me, this is the last missing feature to make Emby my go to IPTV solution. Would love to see this in Emby soon.
  22. I would like create a user like to other user. Example. user Pippo access library video1 bat not access to video2. If create new user Pluto with like Pippo then Pluto automatic access at library Video1 but not access video2. The best Solution is create User profile. Profile1 access library video1 bat not access to video2. I create Pluto user with profile = Profile1 . If change Profile1 automatic update all users associated.

    Convert to H265

    Would be great if their was an option to transcode to H265 when optimising/syncing. Thanks

    Subtitles (DVB & PGS)

    Wouldn't make since to have a option in Transcode setting with these subtitles disabled. And a disclaimer that if you enable these subtitles you will see a major performance hit. Or it could be in Playback settings, feel this is more of a admin setting not a user setting.
  25. I'm looking for a way to create a new user, e.g. "kid", and only "white-list" a few TV shows and a movie or two. After searching for similar questions, the most relevant existing answer is this: However, in the first case you need to physically re-order things on your storage, and keep consciously doing that. It gets even harder when you have multiple users (e.g. "his", "hers", "kid") and some items are available for a subset of them. In the second case you need to tag everything and keep tagging everything new, just so you can allow two TV Shows by not tagging them. This also gets complex with multiple users, because you have to tag everything with a blacklist-tag for every user so you can untag them for certain users without affecting the other user. I don't know what is the history of this functionality and if the way it's set up is due to technical limitations, so please forgive me if this question sounds ignorant: Wouldn't it be orders of magnitude easier if we could whitelist a specific tag (e.g. in parental controls) for a user, rather than blacklisting everything else?
