    Streaming issues

    Hi, I am having issues streaming different files from the server to Edge on Xbox One. Some videos play fine, others will play to a certain point then pause. I have attached logs. transcode-39ea5576-9271-49ac-aff8-f241a8485022.txt directstream-1a1ff0a8-8cca-42d8-a754-96c04d5d314e.txt
  2. Hi Emby community, I'm having some sync issues with my multiple Kodi builds and Emby server. At boot of each of my devices, (Laptop with Windows 10, Pine64 running Android-based Remix OS & an OpenELEC Raspberry Pi 2 all running recent builds of Kodi Jarvis) I am getting a "Library sync thread has exited! You should restart Kodi now" error. Whatever is happening with this error is halting my sync process, and my media on each device is not being updated. I can see it attempt to begin sync at boot, but halts once the message pops up. This began about a month ago. The Emby server is running on a older networked PC I had kicking around running Windows 10, which also holds the majority of my media. I am able to start the Emby addon and perform a local database resync, which will bring up my most updated media, but that seems to be the only way to get it to add. With quite a large library, this is very time consuming, and definitely not a very favorable option. Before I go ahead and wipe my entire db to see if that works, and lose watched status among other things, I'd love to see if anyone around here had any other potential fixes for me. My log file is attached. Thanks in advance for any assistance! server-63601791865.txt

    Unable to search for media

    I have noticed at random times that I am unable to search or anything through Emby Server web client (mainly using Chrome Version 51.0.2704.84 m but also happens using FireFox). Sometimes it will work fine but others it just does nothing (as in the screenshot). Is there a fix for this or any plans to tweak the search function in the future? I looked into 'Search Broke / Won't Find titles of movies' forum but it didn't help. Thanks in advance. server-63601372800.txt

    ANSWERED Changing home tabs

    Hi there. Is there anyone who knows how you can edit, change or hide the menu tekst of the home tabs? Maybe in CSS? That will be great! I hope that somebodey can tell me more about it, because i can't find a good answer for it in the forums. Sorry if i am spamming the forum, but i can only find half answers about this, so i tought it's a good option maybe to make a new topic about it. Greetz Dimmie
  5. At my wits end and on the point of giving up on Emby I'm running Emby Server on a Windows Server 2012 Essential box - until the last patch everything was working but now after several hours of inactivity Emby Server is going into a lock down state. I am unable to access it via web or Kodi access either remotely or on the server - I can't even kill the process and am forced to reboot my server just to get it active again. Not sure what is happening but I can't live with this.. Any help before I decide to terminate my Emby experiment? Log.txt

    Feedback beta 3.0.5929.0, All OK

    Dear Developers and users, [a brief background] I follow a RSS feed and from there I decided to update regularly to the beta's that show up. This means that I'm seeing the site and the community a lot less.. There for, when a popup asked for a little feedback I decided that I should leave some. I have been an Emby user since Video Browser back in 2010? I loved it and a lot of my friends had to suffer for it ;-) I stopped updating around version 2_2_9. Now - I think - it's been a year with Emby.. Now I have my own streaming server AND a potential back up for when MS decides to ditch Windows Media Player entirely and push Groove throw our trout’s. But that’s for another post perhaps. I got lot of suggestion etc but I shouldn't lose track of what the initial point of this post should be. I love you guys and girls! Very happy how the developers communicate and the friendly attitude of the community here. I hope you (the developers) will remain able to keep Emby free. I’m about to donate but I got some reservations about that (including the lack of loose change at the moment J ). So, version 3.0.5929.0, all ok, no issues so far. This is my third beta and the only thing that frustrated me even a little was an unexpected database clean-up. A heads up would be nice next time. Take Care, Maximus ‘Max’ Naxsus
  7. Hi, Since last week when a new server update came through (beta version) when the below items were added to the update, sorry i cant remember exact version number, my server removed all the metadata for my music, ran a media library scan for a few hours and added the metadata back. everything seemed fine after this. But since that update my Emby server Home page is not updating, it will not update the home screen to show new items added to my library. Anyone else having the same issue? Any ideas to why this maybe happening? Im currently running Version 3.0.5925.0 Handle empty album artists list when probing music and Support music dynamic images
  8. Has anyone upgraded to Windows 10 with FlexRaid-F? Please note:header should read FlexRaid-F not "T"

    Emby Will not open/Keeps closing

    So today when I went to use Emby, It would not open the server settings or main interface. When clicking 'Browse Library' or 'Configure Emby' in the windows mini icon, I get a chrome page that says "This site can't be reached" and "localhost refused to connect". I have also been noticing Emby Server just all together closing (as in Emby is completely turned off on the system). I don't really want to uninstall and reinstall again as I will probably have to re-download all covers again. I cannot get Emby logs as I am unsure on where to find them and cannot get into configuration to get them. Please help
  10. Ever since I updated to 3.0.5781.3 and every subsequent release thereafter, I noticed that the search doesn't work. Only a black screen with no visible results. At first, I thought it was limited to the new iOS client. Now, I realize it's doing that in the web client, too. I've run the Clean Database task. Updated to 3.0.5781.8 this morning and no change. Attached is my most recent server log with the SearchTerm errors. Anybody else experiencing this or figure out a way to get my search results showing up again? BTW, LOVE the Holiday Themes!! Pleasant surprise this morning! ServerLog.txt
  11. Hi Folks, 1. Newbie here. Subject is self-explanatory...have tried the emby server install many times over last two nights EST. Here is what I get every time with either Stable or Beta.Unluckily don't know how to access logs. "An error occurred trying to download 'http://raw.githubusercontent.com/MediaBrowser/Emby.Releases/master/Server/windows/release/MediaBrowser.Server.Installer.application'. See the setup log file located at 'C:\Users\ADMINI~1\AppData\Local\Temp\1\VSD674.tmp\install.log' for more information." 2. What I am attempting: For some reason the HTTP server access from Kodi 15.2 (default or Arch) doesn't seem to work. Can access the site, but the buttons don't work, except the Remote sever shutdown button, which, ironically, is what I don't want ! So I want to install emby server and Kodi add-on, and aim to use the set-up to access PseudoTV LIve and other streams on Kodi via PC browser access externally, away from home, without any plug-in or app, e.g., via Chrome browser as http://(Emby Server IP):8096

    Auto sort isn't responding anymore

    Dear Admin and Emby users, My Emby Server is refusing to auto sort my new items :-( I allready had some (more general) issues, I had to hand feed a lot of episode to it because the series title name wasn't an exact match, like 'Law and Order' vs 'Law & Order'.. It started after the latest update: Version 3.0.5871.0. I'm running Windows 10, x64. If I trigger a manual sort the pages will refresh and show no new items. There are at least 20 items to be sorted.. I'll be monitoring this topic in order to respond quickly. Thanks in advance for any reply, M. N. Log.txt
  13. Hello and thanks advance for any support; it's a bit of a read, but I'm hopeful a simple fix exists... A few weeks ago, I decided to batch process hundreds of VOB files into MKV equivalents using MakeMKV and an applet program called MKV Batch Converter. The process renamed each VOB file (e.g., "25th Hour (2002)\VIDEO_TS) into an MKV file within the same parent folder (e.g., "25th Hour (2002)\25th Hour.mkv") and I manually deleted the original "VIDEO_TS" and "AUDIO_TS" files. None of the other metadata/artwork appeared to be modified during these conversions, however I recently discovered that Emby Server generated a second NFO file for many (but not all) of those batch processed movies. The duplication involves one NFO title which matches the MKV file name (e.g., "25th Hour (2002)\25th Hour (2002).nfo) and another which seems to resurrect the ghost of the previously deleted VIDEO_TS file (e.g., "25th Hour (2002)\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.nfo). This dynamic has now made the MKV movie files unplayable on the server ("Video Error - There was an error playing the video"). Interestingly, the trailer files all seem to play fine on Emby Server, regardless of folder structure (some in the their own "Trailer" folders, e.g., "25th Hour (2002)\Trailers\trailer.flv" and some within the parent folder itself, e.g., "21 Jump Street (2012)\21 Jump Street (2012)-trailer.mp4"). I originally discovered this issue in Emby for WMC when many of my local trailer icons disappeared and hitting "play movie" would instead play the trailer. I became curious whether a trailer had to actually be within a "Trailers" subfolder for EMC to recognize both file types. I tried to triage the issue for hours until I realized that the common denominator was not the form of the trailers folder structure, but instead that those media folders with two NFO files were causing different playback issues on both the server and client side. Notably, more recent library additions I have made--not conversions from VOBs, but straight rips to MKV--only have one NFO file within the parent folder and play/display perfectly fine in both Emby Server and Emby for WMC. For the problem movies, however, even when I try to manually delete the duplicate VIDEO_TS.nfo file, Emby Server immediately regenerates it. I could really use some advice on how to permanently remove these duplicate NFO files (and prevent regeneration) so that I can (1) watch trailers AND movies in Emby Server and (2) don't have to relocate every trailers file into its own "Trailers" subfolder for EMC playback. Screenshots of folder structures and Emby Server metadata settings attached.

    Emby Server

    I want to Emby Server anybody send to me an invite to me to use the server? thanks
  15. Specs: Emby server version: 3.0.5782.0 on a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B (OSMC, Debian Jessie) Music is stored on a Synology NAS My Emby server runs the whole day at 100% CPU, even when it's idle. After rebooting the CPU runs after some minutes back at 100%. There are 2 plugins installed in Emby (Auto Box Sets & Trakt). When I look to the running processes then I see that mono-sgen takes all te CPU and a lot of memory (see attchement CPU.jpg). When I open Emby by the web client then my home screen doesn't load fully, the pointer keeps turning (See attachement Home.jpg). I can go to the server management and some other menuitems but everything is of course very slow due to the CPU utilization of mono. What could generate this problem? I have added my log. I have disabled the library scans some days ago so that shouldn't be to problem. Regards Bernd server-63587697200.txt
  16. Hi guys... I was wondering if there's any plans to make users on a server have the ability to set per library permissions. For example on my Music folder I might want some users to be able to stream/listen to the library, but not be able to download them. Others I might want the other way around. But at the same time. I may want them to not be able to encode/stream video to their devices but instead download the full file and play it locally. (Guests for example who are not in my network.) Where as another user I might prefer that they have the ability to stream or download video but have no download access to a single library. Basically I would like to see/have per library permissions for each user if possible. (Maybe adding group permissions might make more sense if you have to go down this road?) Hope that makes sense? If it needs further clarification or a flow chart or something let me know. Thanks! -Phantom
  17. I created a music playlist on the Emby Server and it plays all the songs correctly on my Roku 3. However, after the first song finishes playing and the next song begins to play, the information (metadata) for the first song continues to be displayed. The first song information is displayed through the entire playlist (until the Roku screensaver comes on). Is there an easy fix to make the Roku display info for the song that is currently playing?
  18. I am having a discouraging problem where certain video files streamed from a Emby Server system running Windows 10 through to a television connected Roku 1 device. Many times the video file won't play and would the media browser software on my roku device kicks me out to the home screen. Not sure what I am doing wrong here since other files play perfectly without problem. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Regards, Mike

    watched status not keeping

    Hi, I'm using emby on Synology with the wiki installation procedure, no Docker or something else. I have added trakt and use Emby for Kodi plugin. Emby server is : 3.0.5781.5 I watched a TvShow, It's marked as watched ( in webUI and Kodi ) and Trakt is informed. Great. But, next day, Tvshow loose the watched status and it's the same thing in webUI or Kodi :/ This is happening with previous releases of emby server too, updates doesn't change... An ideas to find what's wrong ? logs or something ? Thanks
  20. Good Afternoon Folks, I currently have 2 FireTV boxes which have replaced PC's in the lounge and one in my guest room which doubles as a gym for myself saves me load of electricity! Emby on the FireTV is amazing for when I have friends staying over as they are always watching TV and Movies and comment on how good it is, as they say "I have my own personal Netflix" One thing I do miss is Music support when I'm training, currently I have Kodi installed with the Emby plugin which is a decent workaround but I'd love to see music support for the FireTV purely from Emby, I have a mild case of OCD so having to use another app slash workaround makes the eye twitch lol I don't like it when people bang on about ETA's but to calm my OCD knowing "it's on the cards" is good enough for me Keep up the good work everyone, Edd.
  21. Idea: optimize upload traffic, give Emby server highest priority, preferably with build in QoS protocols. Some Google searching: http://www.biztechmagazine.com/article/2010/03/boost-network-performance-windows-7-qos Happy to read any idea's and experiences. Didn't try it myself yet.
  22. I have been having random problems connecting to my Emby server. After some time of running, the server will become unresponsive unless i reboot the host machine. Server 2012 R2 Quad core CPU 4.2 Ghz 8 GB Ram Emby Version 3.0.5781.3 I will be posting the latest logs, including the ones after rebooting the Emby Server and then getting "Connection Refused" errors on the browser. I was not able to replicate the other problem yet where the web browser just spins when connecting to Emby. If I can get the logs when that happens I will post in this thread. I also have another post having problems with Live TV and that link is provided below in case there is any connection. Thanks -- Live TV Issue -- http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/28022-live-tv-erratic/ EDIT So i've looked over the log files and it seems part of my issue is the server saying "duplicate process found waiting for it to exit" and "Failed to start HTTP server due to a socket error" Though this seems to happen when i try to reboot the emby server without rebooting the host machine. server-63584365503.txt server-63584401092.txt server-63584401473.txt

    ANSWERED Live Tv Erratic

    I have been having problems with Live TV playback being very erratic. Many times when I start to play TV it either never starts playing, or plays for 1 second then freezes. This problem happens playing to a web browser or to a chromecast. Sometimes it will play fine. I have checked CPU usage when it does work and it never goes above 50%. I am using HDHomeRun with 3 tuners. Running on Server 2012 R2. Quad Core Processor 4.2 Ghz 8 GB Ram Emby Version 3.0.5781.3 I have 1Gbps connections to my computer and the HDHomeRun and the Server machine. The chromecast is connected to a 5Ghz wireless. The transcoding directory has it's own dedicated hard drive. I have been trying to fix this problem for weeks if not months and recently thinking that the built in tuner support would fix my problem. But I am still having the issues. I am also having general server issues that I will post in a separate thread, however will post log files in both in case there is some kind of connection with the issues. I am including the latest transcode logs from when I attempted to play Live TV. Also to note, that the most recent attempts to play Live TV generated no log files at all. If there is any other information that could be useful please let me know and I will update accordingly. Thanks in advance --- Will insert link to other post below when created --- http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/28023-emby-server-random-connection-issues/ EDIT ----- Also to note, that there is no feedback when starting a Live TV stream. Perhaps it would be a good idea to add some text "BUFFERING" or "TRANSCODING" or something with a % progress to see if it is actually doing anything. After rebooting the server, I now cannot scroll up and down the channels list. (reloading the page fixed this though. Not the first time it's happened) server-63584365503.txt transcode-19b32f4e-d21e-4617-ad3d-e1286913625f.txt transcode-e3a722fb-d1e0-49a5-9388-07c605f253bd.txt transcode-eeb46e10-7268-485a-9fa8-cee2de3545dc.txt

The only thing that runs at boot is OpenServer WMC to get live TV When I try to watch Recorded TV through he web--- I get a VIDEO ERROR there was an error playing the video. My Live TV and Channel guide also do not work. I have attached 2 log files. Any help would be appreciated. Log Emby 2 11 25 15.txt Log Emby 11 25 15.txt
