  1. Hi, I have a new problem now. When creating a new library (Animations), the contents are in three subfolders within the same folder, however, Emby Server created the same menu three times. Even though I clear the access in two of them, it does not solve, because it maintains the 3 menus. When you open the menus, the contents are correct, but tripled in all. Am I making a mistake? I have two other Movies folders, both with two subfolders each and this problem does not exist.
  2. Hi, Brand new Plex refugee here. Enter Emby. Same folders, same setup as Plex. Emby will not display my movies, period. Followed Emby naming protocol that worked like a charm in Plex. I've always pointed my iTunes Media folder to Plex. This way, all media is available to iDevices directly, and can stream via Plex Emby directly to our Roku TV. I have added/removed movie folder many times in media library. It sees the movies in the metadata manager, and it shows the miniature movies in the Library view of Emby Web Settings, but will display only TV shows in Home overview. Furthermore, emby app will not play from Roku TV. It sees the server (manually entered), shows the TV shows, but then 'retrieving' and.....nothing. A very frustrating experience so far. I'm only interested in local media streaming. I have no need for online retrieval of tags, titles, subtitles etcetera. I don't want .nfo files added to folders. All images, data and what not are already contained within each .mp4/.m4v file. I'm using Emby only because I have my iTunes purchases on my Mac and want to view them on my Roku TV. Setup is Mac with Emby Server install (latest/greatest), hardwired via MoCa adapter to Roku TV, Emby app. Server is recognized but nothing will play. Media is stored on external Hard Drive connected to Mac. Is this a DRM issue? I have installed and reinstalled Emby but previous settings remain in place on reinstall. This post is a last ditch effort to get this to work, before I cave and go the Apple TV route. I'd prefer to get this working. Thanks!
  3. Some shows (eg, Phineas and Ferb) can often be comprised of two episodes per "block" (or ~20 minute episode time frame), and in instances where one chooses to keep those as a single file it would be nice if the Multi-Episode support added a little visual divider/marker when outputting the Overview/Plot so that it was more apparent when the plot of one episode ends, and the plot of the subsequent episode (contained in the same file) begins. My proposal is that we just use the same green dot delimiter as is used to separate Genres: <span class="bulletSeparator">•</span> Above from: https://github.com/MediaBrowser/emby-web-defaultskin/blob/gh-pages/item/item.js#L383 It'll be consistent with the overall look/feel, and no knew styles have to be created. I would have done a Pull Request, but I couldn't see anything in the default skin that impacts this -- I suspect that the Plots are combined on the server and then outputted as a single plot. Oh, actually, it just occurred to me that the plot is being stored as a single plot (in the Overview field) because it is a single file (duh!). Looking at the details of an example it does appear that the Plots are separated by a CRLF, but lately Emby Theater has not been displaying those (I thought, though I could be wrong, that in some earlier testing maybe a few weeks ago I had success with those characters being recognized and outputting as space between lines of text). Regardless of how we get there, it would be nice to have a visual separator (whether CRLF, or something else) for these plots.

    Main Menu + Submenu

    Hi, Is it possible to create submenu on Emby Server? I explain I separate the collection of movies between Legendados, Dublados and Infantis, but this forces me to have three separate menus in the main menu of Emby Server. I wish I could have just one Movies menu and when the client clicked on that single menu, a submenu would pop up with the movie options; Voices, Legendados and Infantis. In order not to remain doubt, I leave an art, being the Main Menu what is seen in the Emby and the Submenu what would be displayed when being clicked. Thanks for any tip.
  5. Hello everybody! I'll try to keep it short and sweet. Right now, I'm running v3.6.0.81_beta (will upgrade soon to v4) on a headless Fedora 27 box with 4GB of RAM and a dual-core AMD A4-3300 APU on a WD HDD. It also leverages OpenLDAP running on another FreeBSD box on my network for authentication. Have used the setup for years; I try to keep the boxes physically clean and the setup is still running like a champ. Using a couple of external USB 3.0 drives for backup. It ain't pretty, but it works. Sometimes I have issues with the Android app spinning when trying to play music on my Pixel 2 phone or buffering over WiFi when playing a movie on my Fire TV Cube app (which results in some herky-jerkiness). Those instances are relatively rare, though although the latter issue is nonetheless more annoying. I am thinking that may be due to streaming higher-resolution movies over WiFi (ideal vs real world transfer speeds, essentially a bandwith issue and not a system resource issue?). Fast-forward to today, and I have just procured a bona-fide workstation (Dell Precision T3400, Core 2 Duo) that I am converting to (Free)NAS with 8GB ECC RAM, SSD for boot, and media on a RAID 1 two-HDD configuration for redunancy. Here is the question I'm wrestling with: Should I move from Fedora-server Emby to FreeNAS-plugin Emby? Let me say that I know there is no cut and dried answer to this due to different processors, operating systems (essentially Linux vs FreeBSD), chipsets, etc. But anecdotally I have heard of a more performant TCP/IP stack on BSD, and I want to reclaim my USB drives although that is not strictly speaking a dealbreaker. However, Emby would be running from an SSD which I am assuming would make a big difference. Of course, I also don't have any experience with the FreeNAS Emby plugin. Are there any relatively stable data points or pieces of information that I am missing that may suggest choosing one course over the other? Many thanks in advance!
  6. Hello, for some reason I have to stay with Emby for Kodi 2.3.63. Currently I'm using it with Emby Server 3.5.3 and Kodi Companion 2.0.3. I'd like upgrade to Emby Server 4.0, but I read that after the upgrade will be necessary to update also the Plugins. My question is: after the upgrade, the compatibility with Emby for Kodi 2.3.63, will be preserved ?

    Can not find emby server

    I have been trying to find my Server via the Emby LG app, manually or select server. But can not be found. It's strange that Plex works fine without issue, I'm just here testing the waters for a possible migration. WebOS 1.4 on 2014 UHD LG TV MacOS 10.14.2 Emby Server version : 3.5.3 Download the app from LG store without issue, used the link process several times, logged into Emby. Look forward to any suggestions
  8. Hi, Could you please add missing codec MediaInfo icons to the server core? Dolby Digital Plus, MP3 and Xvid/MPEG4 do not appear on thumbs with other icons. Back to You Video Codec: MPEG4 - Codec Tag: Xvid - Audio Codec: MP3 Baby Daddy Audio Codec: EAC3 Also, could audio channels icons be implemented too, as they don't show up either.

    Live TV enhancements

    Hello, I have a few ideas for enhancements to the Live TV system. 1 Support for more headers in m3u files... eg.live (1/0) - disable/enable live stream flag, so play and seek controls can be enabled or disabled tvg-group - to set network/studio group of radio and tv streams for easier grouping tvg-url - so xmltv guide data can be bound directly to a channel or m3u file, bypassing the built-in gui method #bg-color and #bg-size - to alter the background color and size of the channel tile metadata display - eg. jQuery Stream, embedded m3u/8 comment, Icy-Metadata, Icecast CORS/ACAO headers. I have a ttached an m3u file which I tried to directly add as m3u tuner, but the server would not load it properly, possibly because it is one stream with multiple chunks ( also has metadata)... it can be called from another m3u tuner though. https://wz3web.scahw.com.au/live/3sea_32.stream/playlist.m3u8?listeningSessionID=5bdda753c87a2e78_303254_9A8QlPM3__00000001t29&downloadSessionID=0 #EXTM3U #EXT-X-VERSION:3 #EXT-X-TARGETDURATION:6 #EXT-X-MEDIA-SEQUENCE:40 #EXTINF:5.015,Lukas Graham - Love Someone fRjAPQ6Q9DEp-308311271-5015.aac #EXTINF:4.969,Lukas Graham - Love Someone lR52ZCSwo0Yp-308311272-4969.aac #EXTINF:5.015,Lukas Graham - Love Someone j6TateebXsLp-308311273-5015.aac tv (0/1) - enable/disable tv (must specify either radio or audio-only options if set to 0) radio (true) - enable radio-specific stream with rich metadata (only use if tv=0, can not be used with audio-only) audio-only (true) - enable audio only stream without rich metadata (only use if tv=0, can not be used with radio) 2 Add support for Icecast streams/tuners

    some observations and thoughts

    Hi, I would like to share some observations and thoughts on emby server. I am a new user so forgive me if some issues I am mentioning here have been already discussed on the forum. Feature request: - option to disable media deletion from within server (and consequently from within any client) for administrator In these few weeks of using emby I happen to accidentally delete some media couple of times. Fortunately, both times I was lucky. BUT I realised it could have been much worse scenario and that some users weren't so lucky. I searched for an option to disable delete but I couldn't. Please do something about it, this shouldn't be allowed to happen by accident just because there is no logical option to restrict meddling with media files. Option to disable delete or triple password to confirm or similar. Also, in the meantime or if you don't intend to change this please suggest a workaround (?) Bugs/Not working/Should work: - per library setting for metadata language not working I've been regularly having situations where I needed to identify movie within library and it would regularly update in some random language although I set it up in library settings. The solution is workaround: to set up metadata language for every movie per se. I already reported that but here it is again. Apart from that emby scraper (and Identify feature) works generally very very good. - collection items disappear after relocating media Which is so unfortunate because collections are one of the greatest features emby and I use it a lot. Unfortunately I found out that most of my manually created collections are just lost effort after I re-organized some media folders. I need to be able to re-organize folder structure of my media from time to time and I need those collections... - sort by release date not working Not even close. Not in separate libraries, not in grouped libraries. Fix/Should work better: - search is too often too slow or is not working at all I believe you are aware of this. And I believe you are working on improvements. Search by original title should be included. As well as collections and tags. I sometimes wait 30-45 seconds to get results. And sometimes it doesn't respond at all and then I have to try to search from another library or from dashboard. - browsing through pages doesn't remember position when "refreshed" and it is pretty frustrating when trying to fix something among 12000 titles and every time it throws me back on 1st page. I suppose it is more realistic that this "fix" will be part of new ui at one point but until then it would be VERY helpful to have some kind of index (1-100 | 101 - 200 | 201 - 300| ... | 9901- 10000) Small things that could make things more practical but also not essential: - Include media path in Identify window so you save user's steps before pre-identifing what to identify... It is logical (in most cases) that Identify is to be used when media is incorrectly scraped, so instead scrolling to the bottom of the page to check which title we want to identify there could be path visible in Identify window. At least. - Make media file path at the bottom of movie details page as link so it could be opened/showed in finder/windows explorer. I frequently use select text and then open in finder in safari but this could be more convenient maybe. Couple of questions: - Why nfos use 2 x imdb ids? - Why some of manually added genres are shown under genres in library and some are not? Thanks for reading.
  11. Hi, It would be good to add the ability for additional air dates and times. EG:- You could replace the current Release Date, End Date, Air Days, Air Time and Studio with Air groups... which would have options for First Run and Repeats. First Run options:- Release Date, End Date, Air Day(s), Air Time(s), Season(s) and Studio. Repeat options:- Air Day(s), Air Time(s), Studio This information could be displayed in Series-level information screens, and the Studio would be carried from the parent item to the child items (season and episode screens).
  12. Hello everyone. Having some issues with my Emby Server Version 3.2.16.0. I have a Roku that I push all of my media to and just recently the emby app hasn't been working. I've figured out that every time i can not play something i have to come upstairs because my Emby Server app has stopped running and I have to manually start the process again. I've attached the error log file with this that i got from http://localhost:8096/web/log.html - If anyone needs a ny more logs to have a look at please let me know. Emby Log.txt
  13. Hi, I believe Emby Server is not reading #EXTINF data correctly in m3u playlists. I had to alter the following entries in my playlist #EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="7",7 Digital Melbourne #EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="71",7 Digital Melbourne to #EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="7",7Digital Melbourne #EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="71",7Digital Melbourne Emby was not parsing these correctly, and was not mapping them to the correct channel number. I am guessing that if the channel name begins with a digit, it is read as a channel number.

    ANSWERED IceTV support

    Hi, Could IceTV support be added to Emby Server guide providers, so we are not forced to use XMLTV? They now have an API http://forum.icetv.com.au/iceforum/announcements/4/icetv-api-documentation/5065/.

    MK3D support

    Hi, Could the mk3d file extension be added to the 3d file naming conventions? eg. if the file extension is mk3d, then the server shouldn't have to rely on the other naming conventions.
  16. Following on @@Luke's response in a separate thread; https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/60539-live-tv-works-in-emby-in-chrome-but-not-emby-theater/?p=596345 I was watching a live TV channel last night for about 4 hours via the Android TV app when suddenly the stream stopped/crashed and the Emby app flipped back to the EPG. Can this happen if the stream just stopped from the provider, or could this be a server issue perhaps? I enabled Auto-loop per a suggestion from @@Luke and the viewing has been flawless since then, until this issue last night. Immediately I tried to reconnect back to the server, but it was not responding. Emby Server Stream Crash -2018-07-12-910pm.txt
  17. What is the current status of hardware acceleration and Emby Server? I can't find a lot of information, but I can find more people asking this question. Is there or might there be one day, a guide that specifies what hardware acceleration option are actually available in certain situations like OS, GPU, CPU? I'm looking in to VA-API now. If something interesting pops up I'll post it here. EDIT: https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Hardware/VAAPI Hooked @" If you have multiple usable devices in the same machine".., but it's going to take me a while to dig tru this http://www.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg.html#Advanced-Video-options Windows Server 2016 AMD 9590 @ 5Ghz 32GB RAM AMD R9 480 AMD HD7750 I just acquired some 4K, x265 material. Transcoding this material is a nightmare (doable for 1 stream)
  18. I have Emby running on a Windows server 2016 in a data center. I am always connecting to the external port with ssl enabled. After streaming for some time on any given day the external port within Emby closes and I cant access the server remotely. I have to RDP into the server and restart Emby to get the port to open again. When I RDP in I can see Emby on the LAN port. Windows firewall has the external port open and the network firewall has the port open. I know its somewhere in Emby that has the problem. I used to use the auto restart plugin to restart Emby server every 24 hours but now that that is gone i have to do it manually. Does anyone have any recommendations to a good fix for this problem in the current version of Emby?
  19. As I'm slowing converting some of my library to MKV, I'm encountering multi-angle / multi-video-track DVD's, and I'm wondering how folks tend to handle these, as well as what the current (and likely future) support is in Emby (particularly Emby Theater) for being able to recognize and switch between multiple video tracks (or angles) contained in a single MKV file? I thought I came across a post indicating that Emby does not currently provide a way to switch between multiple angles/video-tracks, but I can't seem to find that post so I may have imagined it. I realize that one option is to just rip 2 versions of the content, one with one angle/track, and the other with the other. The upside is that this route should circumvent any compatibility issues there might be with Emby or other players. The downside of course is potentially a lot of duplicated space (eg, in the case of a movie with just a few alternate scenes). How well does Emby handle multi-angle MKV's? And have any of you created multi-angle MKV's, and if so, what is your process? It appears to me that MakeMKV let's you pick one angle or the other, but it does not appear to me that it gives an option to combine them into a single file containing just the differing portions of each video track (and the ability, in supporting players, to switch between video tracks). I can probably live with going the route of creating multiple complete files, each with a different video track / angle, but figured it is worth checking if there are more efficient, supported ways of going about all this. Thanks!
  20. As I gradually am getting my library transitioned into Emby one thing that I've noticed is that I have some TV shows where the anti-spoiler feature makes sense because the shows episodes have a lot of continuity. But for other shows continuity is not really an issue and I would normally hop around watching whichever episode interested me at the time (The Simpsons is an example of this kind of show). So I think it could be useful to add an option in the Series Metadata to enable or disable Anti-Spoiler functionality for that Series, and this setting would take precedence over any global setting. So we probably want to make the setting have three states along the lines of: Always Use Anti-Spoiler Features, Never Use Anti-Spoiler Features, and Respect Global Anti-Spoiler Settings (which would be the same as if this item is never set by the user, ie the default). Then folks can configure things whichever way makes sense for their collection.

  21. Hi, Emby Server needs to stop creating metadata, cache, transcoding-temp directories automatically. I have my server paths set to:- Emby data: /srv/.config/emby cache: /media/cache metadata: /media/metadata transcoding-temp: /media/tmp With Emby's current control, the directories end up being:- cache: /media/cache/cache metadata: /media/metadata/metadata transcoding-temp: /media/tmp/transcoding-temp Ideal outcome:- cache: /media/cache metadata: /media/metadata transcoding-temp: /media/tmp/transcoding

    Emby Server Question

    This may be a dumb question. I've been using or at least trying to use Plex now for almost a year with the Cloud Server and there have been so many issues. I'm considering trying out Emby but feel a little lost. I currently have all my media content, including movies, music, TV shows stored in Dropbox. Is there a way to use this storage as a server, or how would I go about using something like this? Using a computer as the server isn't really an option. I'm just basically seeing what is possible at this point. Thanks for any help.
  23. Hi, A client, using the application for Xbox One, stated that they were able to browse the libraries of my emby server, however, while trying to reproduce, the message came that he should become a Premiere user to proceed. I am Emby's Premiere user and was certain that, being Premiere, it would be enough for the client, using any of the applications, would have access to the playback in my libraries. If not, I'd like to know what I can do so clients can have playback on my server. Thank you very much
  24. Some customers, using Internet browsers (including Chrome) and the LG TV app, are reporting that external captions do not appear on most videos, though they are scheduled to be shown. After several tests with such clients, I have noticed the problem, which can be easily solved. When playing the video, the caption is on. If the client disconnects the subtitle and restarts, then the subtitle is displayed. Is it possible to put this bug in the solution queue after verifying on new tests? Thank you very much
  25. It could be nice to have a way to configure a Default User, so that every new user created just copy the default user configuration. That is useful for when a new user is added you don't want to have the hassle of changing library access and server permissions every time, i like to even setup the home screen and playback preferences given that very few of my users have the interest or the dexterity to do by themselves. This way you could setup the defaults in what every new user will be configured.
