  1. I cant access Emby anymore on my local ip. This happend after a update. I used to access Emby locally with http://embyserver:port or http<embyserverip>:port. Both don't work anymore. I can't edit these settings because I don't have a SSL certrificate and I still like to use a SSL connection with external clients. To make things more complicated, my server has multiple internal ip's. Since last (forced*) update Emby bind to the wrong internal ip. Is this a bug or a feature? Can I get 'the old' situation back? (with out a manual downgrade) Happy to read any comment! *forced because after an update the 'update automatically' option switches back on!? I try to be at least 2 beta builds behind but sometimes I forget this bug? and voila, I'm on the latest build.
  2. From what I can tell currently videos within the "extras" folder do not get parsed automatically for online metadata, nor do any associated NFO files (from outside of Emby) get parsed. Following up on this post ( https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/40262-why-are-dvd-extras-limited-to-a-single-directory/page-2&do=findComment&comment=377431 ) I thought I'd go ahead and make a request here (and reiterate some of what I posted in the above thread). I'd be interested in NFO support for Extras, both support for writing to NFO, but also for reading an pre-existing NFO on import, like is done for regular items and automatically adding any available online metadata. However, given that the way extras are currently presented (ie, such that you don't really see/view much of their details), I can understand why there currently is not much support for additional details (and thus no NFO file support). Edit: Also, images named the same as a given extras video are ignored. It would be nice if these were picked up as well, like they are in non-extras contexts. Edit: An additional clarification: By "automatic" I do not mean that a external lookup should be automatically performed for every file in the Extras directory, as that would likely be a nightmare of mismatches. Rather, I just mean that if there is an NFO file that goes with a video file, and the NFO file contains metadata (such as IMDB ID, etc.) then an automatic lookup using that data should be performed in order to grab the corresponding metadata for that Extra. PS - If this is something you might like to see implemented, be sure to "Like" this top/first post (as well as any subsequent posts in this thread that highlight particular aspects of what you are interested in) -- "Liking" the top/first post helps the Devs to know how much interest there is in a given Feature Request.
  3. I can get Emby Server to install ok on Raspbian. I can load it up and everything works, except that it can't read my storage device. Raspbian file explorer sees the storage and I can view the movies, but when I type that path to add to my library, it says it's not valid. I have zero experience here. I'm just googling what I can, but a lot of it is over my head. Can someone please help me out with a ELI5? Thank you!

    Select which folders to resume

    I often just watch one or two chapters from a music video for my favorite tracks. However, Emby then puts them into the resume playback category. In this case I do not want to resume and they clutter up the interface. Can Emby have features to: 1) For items in resume playback list have a button to cancel the resume 2) Have a setting at the Media Library level to exclude all items in the library from being resumed. I could then flag my music video library in one go.

    Keep Emby Server running

    If you like me are running Emby Server on a Windows computer you know that it sometimes fails... if you like me sit in front of the TV with just a remote in your hand and want to watch your favorite show and Emby have failed, and in 99,9% of the time all you need to do is start it again you get somewhat annoyed. You can probably handle this a thousand ways but I wrote a small powershell script that checks if the website is responding, if it isn't stops the emby processes and starts them up again. I run this as a scheduled task and it have kept my Emby more up and running than before. I have tested this on a Windows 10 computer, I have no idea if this runs at all on any other version of Windows. I would guess that it does but you probably have to update Windows Powershell to use it. How to use it. Create a .ps1 textfile (Like C:\MyScripts\Emby-Monitor.ps1) with this content: $embywebsite = "http://localhost:8096" try{ $x=Invoke-RestMethod -Method Get -Uri $embywebsite -ea stop -TimeoutSec 5 } catch{ Write-EventLog -EntryType Error -LogName Application -Source “Emby-Monitor” -EventId 8096 -Message "Emby Website is DOWN - Shutdown and Startup again" Stop-Process -Name *Emby* -Force Start-Process $env:APPDATA\Emby-Server\system\EmbyServer.exe } You need to run the below command as an administrator once, this is to create the source for eventlog If you do not do this monitoring will still work but it wont write anything in the eventlog New-EventLog –LogName Application –Source “Emby-Monitor” Create a scheduled task that runs the scipt how ever often you like as the logged on user To test it simply exit Emby (taskbar icon, right click and exit) and run the scheduled task and Emby should start up again.
  6. Hi all, 2 days ago I started emby on android TV and after looging I saw a blank page : no media at all. after searching into your forum I made a backup and deleted the library.db file. After very long scanning time I got the library back again. And emby was working. But today same issue appears again. After taking a look into planned task : scan media library failed / Refresh guide failed I attached the server log file. thanks in advance for your help.

    Alternate skins for Emby Server

    Are there alternative skins for Emby Server? I am migrating my video player from Kodi to Emby Server and would like to know other skins besides standard skin.

    Audio on Emby Server

    Only now I noticed that the Emby Server has no fields for audio settings. That's right, it's not possible to configure the audio, since I started to use Emby Server not only to share the collections, but as a local media player.
  9. Hi, Where can I see the audio and video formats not yet supported by Emby Server? I have in the collections several formats and some are not reproduced. Thank you

I do not know what Video Bookmarks are and I do not know how it is displayed in the menu, because I have never used this item. The collection of songs I want to keep on Emby Server, I just need to hide it from the main menu. Many thanks for any tip.

    Emby Server without remote access

    Hello everyone, I ask for help. Suddenly my Emby Server has stopped being shared for external clients and I've tried all the ways I know and have reread all the Emby website tips and I can not get external clients to access my Emby Server. In the modem of the carrier are already open port 8096 and I also tried to leave the modem of the carrier in Bridge mode, opening the port on the router and also did not work. I've also checked and it's nothing with Windows 10 or your firewall. I would like to receive help on this and my account Emby is Premiere. Thank you
  12. Hi, I've installed my emby server on a open hour chameleon device (arm based with a rockchip rk3288) the server is running fine (lubuntu based) - after some problems with SMB / NTF. (I can post a howto later) My target is to transcode my 1080p mkvs also for chromecast, iphone etc. is that possible? ist the rockchip cpu fast enough? (quad core 1.8ghz) when I run a video in the browser I always get the could not play error (html5 player, android device with vlc etc) where do I find the logs on the emby server? (/var/log/emby.log has no entries) Cheers
  13. I hope I have this in the correct forum. I have a question about computer performance while running the Emby Server. Every time I have the server running, I have frequent stuttering of video while watching TV using Windows Media Center (WMC) and a HD Homerun USB Tuner. (Not viewing TV content through Emby). This happens while watching live or recorded TV. I do not have the Emby App installed in WMC. I also have noticeably slow performance of other programs. This all resolves when I shut down the Emby server. Video stuttering happens even when I am not streaming content remotely using the Emby Server. Just having the server running seems to cause the issue. I have a Dell with an I5 650 (3.2Ghz) and 8-Gig Ram, Running Windows 7 Ultimate. I checked performance using Task Manager while the problem was happening and it shows CPU 11%, Physical Memory 27%. It does not seem to be stressing my hardware. It seems to work better if I exit the Emby Server and then restart the server. I have an Emby Log while the problem was happening and after stopping and restarting if it helps identify the problem. I was not sure if it is safe, (Privacy Issue) to Post Logs in the Forum. Let me know if it is OK to post LOGS to the public forum? Any Help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Issue with new version

    Hello, until yesterday was everything normal with my last Emby Server stable version and today, very early, when connecting the server, the Emby Server comes in and falls in 1 minute. I have researched both the Emby Server and the pc and the problem persists. It comes in and falls all the time and that has been repeated for more than 10 times today. I use Windows 10 64 Pro. server-63641510355.txt

    New version

    In the current version, did I notice that the per-user settings feature has been removed? Or is it somewhere else I have not found? I also read that in the beta there was a new transparent theme, so that the background images were in evidence. Thank you

    User Control

    Hi, Is it possible or feasible for us to have greater control over users? 1. I understand how interesting it is to be able to determine the validity period of login to each user, for example, a specific date for expiration. 2. It would also be interesting that there could be limited single login per user, or maximum of two simultaneous login. Because Emby limits the maximum of 15 logged in users, it would be fairer to grant a single (or two) login to each user. Thanks for your reply.
  17. Hi, I had to rebuild the server that I've been running Emby on, and I'm trying to use the server configuration backup plugin to migrate everything. However, when I try to run the restore on the backup, nothing happens. In the attached log file, it looks like there is an error associated with the restore request on line 2320 and again on line 2535. Hopefully that helps identify what is wrong with my setup. Thanks, Jonathan EmbyLog.txt
  18. Can someone help me understand the server-side user setting called "Allow downloading that requires transcoding"? Server > Users > {select a user} > Downloading There are two settings that can each be independently enabled/disabled per user: * Allow media downloading * Allow downloading that requires transcoding The first seems pretty self-explanatory and I have it enabled for all users. The second setting is relatively new (I don't remember seeing it before) and it confuses me. I understand what transcoding means in the context of video playback over the network, but not what it means in the context of downloading a media file. What does transcoding have to do with a file download? Any help you could give me in understanding that setting would be appreciated. The wiki doesn't show the setting (yet?).
  19. After upgrading to the latest version of Emby Server, I noticed that legends, formerly perfect, are displaying garbage characters when the letter is accented. In Brazil letters with accents are very common, so these characters in question mark format are all over the legend.

    Emby on Zorin OS?

    Apparently I am the only one who has mentioned Zorin OS. https://zorinos.com/about/ I have been thinking of perm moving to it if mediasever can be installed and ran from it. Not even sure where to post as it is Linux/Debian but made to be Windows friendly, it is now currently the #6 in branches, in first quarter this year it had half a million downloads for Zorin 12. It has the security of Linux but the features and integration of windows programs and apps. It is to me and looking as if to most others dumping garbage windows and osx OS's the go to and future go to operating system being so familiar with the two in looks but much more secure and tons faster. You can even boot into BIO's and give it a test spin before install. @@Luke has this even been tested yet also do you think compatibility already exist for installation? I did 3 forum searches and only mentions of it are 3 post in my sig

    IPTV m3u list

    Does m3u lists really work on Emby Server? I would like to test but I did not even understand which plugin I should use. My pretense is that web clients can access the tv channels from my m3u list. If there is already a topic that discusses this subject, I would like to know, because I did not find it here in the forum.

    Emby Server - New Version

    With the update of Emby Server for the new version, the "My Media" icons have been reduced, even though I use CSS to leave the size I want, it seems that the new version despises the applied CSS code. Is it possible to have the icons in the size I prefer, or will the new version no longer allow this customization?

    Cinema Mode

    Hello, maybe (not sure) a problem exists in Cinema Mode. I added a single video in the folder, to serve as an intro and set the Cinema Mode area. Everything worked fine. When adding in the same folder, the second video for the second intro, before the movie or episode starts, the intros are played three times in the sequence; 1, 2, 1. My intro files are ac3.mp4 and h264.mp4 but I would like to use generic names like intro1.mp4 and intro2.mp4, is this possible and so will the intro be played before all the movies and episodes? I would like the intro1 and intro2 to alternate with each play in the collections.

    Media ordering

    I realized these problems only in my Concerts collection. For some reason, Emby does not obey the alphabetical ordering of all Concerts. He orders a particular group and then, orders the other group in the sequence. Any tips, so that everyone is in alphabetical order? Thank you from now on.

    User control

    I did a test, changing the user login permission schedules and found that if the user tries to access outside the given times, in fact he will not succeed, however: 1. The displayed screen does not disappear when clicking the button "Done" and for this, just clicking outside the image. 2. Is it possible to use CSS code to edit the text on this screen?
