    Need your help and opinion

    Hi, First, thanks for any help that you can provide with that. I have old parts that I no longer use and I would like to build a media server with them. Here are the parts: Motherboard: GA-Z68A-D3-B3 Processor: i5 2300 @ 3.10ghz Memory: 2x 2gb @ 1333mhz & 2x 4gb @ 1333mhz Graphic Card 1: Asus Geforce GTX 560TI Graphic Card 2: Gigabyte Geforce 650GT Boot: 128GB SSD Storage (spinning): 1x 1tb & 4x 4tb in RAID5 Power Supply: 500w I plan to use Ubuntu Server 18.04.3 with Docker, I am not very familiar with Unraid / FreeNas, etc. 1. Can I use both graphics cards even if they are not in SLI for transcoding? If not which one should I use? (I want to be able to transcode 4k if possible) 2. Is the power supply powerful enough if I can use both graphics cards? 3. Should I find out about Unraid or FreeNas, etc.? Is it worth it? 4. Any other suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated. P.S. If I can't have 4k, I would settle for 1080p.
  2. Adventures in GPU Passthrough and Emby Server I decided to post this as I am sure I am not the only person wondering about trying a server with multiple GPU's for transcoding. From my experimentation, each GPU used must have its own Emby Server instance/VM. Over the last 3 months I have been experimenting with Linux, Emby and GPU passthrough. I have tried many distros and configurations. I started with Arch linux to cut my teeth on GPU passthrough as the documentation is excellent. My adventures have proven very educational. It does seem like every BLOG and post out there is usually missing at least one thing if you are doing a 'from scratch' set up. Here is what I have currently settled on as my 'production' system (yes, using Ubuntu server). This can be done using Arch, Fedora, CentOS ... however, I found this to be stable (for my use-case). I have also tried Proxmox and ESXi server. I was able to set this system up with Proxmox... EXCEPT, I ran into the AMD GPU reset issue in the VM that is pretty universal across ALL disto's and configurations (from my experience). Therefore, I settled on the Base VM system also being an Emby server running on Ubuntu 18.04 and using the AMD GPU for video AMD GPU acceleration in Emby Transcoding. This works great as in the event you need to reset the AMD-based transcoding server .. you won't run into the GPU hanging issue since the entire server will be rebooted. Below is my hardware I am using. I began this experiment with an I7 4790K, 16GB DDR3 and ASUS Z97-A motherboard. That configuration worked, but when I decided I wanted to run ALL of the GPU's in ONE system, I found that I was running out of processors to dedicate to VMs, hence I went with the 8700K and NOT the 9700K (12 threads vs 8 threads) -- another bonus to the processor upgrade is the addition of hardware HEVC enconding/decoding that the older 4790K didn't have. By heart I am a 'bang-for-the-buck' kinda person, so EVERY other computer/server I have are AMD-based. But as a technologist and realist, I realized, if I wanted a Multi-method transcoding server in one-box... I needed to go with Intel (at least until they release their GPU in the coming year(s).). I chose the ATX motherboard platform due to the number of full-size PCIe slots (even though not all of them are 16x slots. The motherboard I selected has 3 full-size PCIe slots, and I configured them as 8x/4x/4x. I have the AMD RX 570 in the 8x slot, the MSI GTX 1050Ti in a 4x slot and an Intel PRO/1000 quad port card in the final 4x PCIe slot. In my VMs I assign each VM its own NIC port on the Intel quad-port card. You may be wondering; "Where are the media files stored?" ... well, I have a FreeNAS server (ZFS RaidZ2) that holds all the media and the Emby Server configuration backup files. Once I figured out how to use the Backup Configuration plugin .. my experimentation became so much easier. Purchasing my Lifetime Emby Premiere License has been invaluable (No, I am not affiliated with Emby -- other than being a user). Multi-method transcoding Server Intel I7 8700K (6core/12thread) w/UHD 630 graphics Gigabyte Z390 UD motherboard G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-3200 Intel PRO/1000 PTQuadPort (PCIe 4x) MSI GTX 1050Ti Gaming X 4GB MSI RX 570 Armor 4GB OC Inland Profressional 120GB SSD (SATA) - Boot/OS WD 1TB HDD (SATA) - VM & Storage Base OS : Ubuntu Server 18.04.3 Add-ons : Libvirt, QEMU, OVMF, Cockpit Web Management, Emby-Media server (AMD-based transcoding) VM1 (Intel-based Transcoding) OS : Ubuntu Server 18.04.3 CPU : 2 Memory : 2GB VM2 (NVIDIA-based Transcoding) OS : Ubuntu Server 18.04.3 CPU : 2 Memory : 2GB VM3 (Software Transcoding) OS : Ubuntu Server 18.04.3 CPU : 4 Memory : 4GB You will notice that the VMs that use hardware accelerated transcoding only have two (2) CPU's assigned.. as the GPU does all the heavy lifting and you don't need a bunch of CPU power. I have tested this using using my cell phone to 'force' the GPU to transcode - I have noticed on occasion if the source is HEVC it defaults to software transcoding for some unexplicable reason. I have been able to re-build this system numerous times with full Transcoding functionality. FYI, I am using the Ubuntu drivers for ALL GPUS (Intel i915, NVIDIA and AMD)... if you are interested, I can make another post with links to the sources I used. I will also be testing AMD-based Hardware accelerated transcoding using the AMD Ryzen 5-based APU (R5-3400G). I have an AMD-based test-server that I will be using to do the same as above, but without the Intel-based transcoding option).

    Does Custom CSS even work?

    I understand this only affects the web view. When I plug css into the Custom CSS section, the code does not render on the page. Here is some example code, just to see if I could affect the page: .card {display:none} .tabcontent {display:none} #indexPage {display:none} .SkinHeader {display:none} .homeSectionsContainer {display:none} Is any one else seeing this not working? I have Emby running on a Linux (Ubuntu).
  4. Hi Guys, this refers to here: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/77892-raspberry-pi4-nas-for-server/page-2 But since the topic is a bit different, I guess no one does even read it.. So let me summarize the problem: I got folders for movies and for TV-shows. The are structured as follows: a) movies \\smb-share_whatever\videos\movies\action\Rambo 1\Rambo 1.mkv (or mp4 or avi) tv-shows \\smb-share_whatever\videos\TV-shows\Friends\Season01\S01E01.mkv (or mp4 or avi) Every folder does have a Backdrop.jpeg and a folder.jpg, the genre-folders for the movies also do have a folder.jpg. Since I got an "old" server (Windows 2012 R2), it also does access these files, which are on its RAID-Volume. (~8TB) Here it works perfectly, the overview shows movies and TV-shows and when you click one of them, you see the genres under movies. Now for the Rock64Pro-board with Armbian-Buster: I've mounted the SMB-share under /mnt, I can easily access both, movies AND TV-shows and also read them. (I've even tried via WinSCP to copy them being read from the /mnt). I've then added separately movies (content-type "movies" and TV-shows (content-type "TV-shows") to emby. The TV-shows are recognized and can be played easily. The movies show-up empty as there would be no content or it is not readable or not recognized. I removed the movies and added them as "mixed content" - same story. Since I want to retire the Win2k12-Server, I also have a NAS, which offers an SMB-share to my network. I've also the same files on the NAS, same folders - only different IP. When I add the movies from my NAS, emby does recognize them BUT: I) It does not show the folder-structure, only when I select the list-option "folders". On my windows-server it does it as a standard. Here it shows all movies (~1550) in a bulk-list. II) It does NOT play the movies. When I click one, the player seems to load and then it says "there are no compatible streams available." But it does play the TV-shows from the Win2K12-Server... (I've got my emby-premium on both registered, it is a lifetime-key) So - tons of problems - only because of my effort to save the 125W my server consumes 24/7 ;-) I'd highly appreciate if you can give me some help. Regards, Matthias
  5. Hello, When I first set up my Emby server a few weeks ago now, I made several playlists at the same time. We use playlists daily and it’s one of the main reasons we’ve moved over to Emby. However, I have had something weird happen with a few of them. After creating many playlists, I noticed that the Playlist icon had changed to match one of the playlist, which is fine. But I decided to change up the image used for that Playlists icon and when I did, three of my playlists also ended up with that same image - although they each had previously pulled different images from online for their respective titles (one of them was the image that pulled down for the Playlists link icon). I tried to change each of the images back to that of their own title but each time I did, the image changed for all three playlists. I decided the easiest thing to do would be to delete those three playlists and recreate them but every time I try with each of them, I get an error message - “There was an error deleting the item from Emby Server. Please check that Emby Server has write access to the media folder and try again.” Each one of three playlists give the same error but any other playlists have no trouble being deleted. It’s only these three that all are sharing the same images. I have checked and Emby does have read/write access to the Playlist location, as evidenced by the fact that I can create and delete any other playlist. I don’t want to lose all the work I’ve put into creating and organizing so many playlists and I’m not sure how to get rid of these three playlists. I’m feeling kind of stuck with them since there’s obviously a glitch between them all. I don’t know what to do to fix this and I’d so appreciate any help figuring it out. Thanks so much in advance!

    emby -ffmpeg issue

    Hello everyone, first post here so if anything should be edited just tell me. Anyway, I am running emby on a Manjaro linux machine, everything has been working out of the box until now. I am watching an episode of a series I already watched tons of episodes on emby without any problem, and suddenly the media reproduction stops towards the end. If I reload the episode it will keep stopping around the same time. Other episodes seem to be fine for now. I attach the log embyserver.txt, it seems to be an error with starting ffmpeg, but I don't really see the reason as everything has been working ok until now. I have seen some other older posts with similar issue and I tried reloading the whole series, rescanning the library each time, but nothing changed. Hope you can help, thanks in advance! UPDATE I managed to watch some other episodes and also some films, the problem happens suddenly towards the end of some apparently random episodes of just this series. It might have something to do with the files themselves but I cannot understand what since they all come from the same source. Log log-ffmpeg.txt

    https://www.engadget.com/2019/03/18/nvidia-jetson-nano-ai-computer/ Got emby up and running, seems good so far. This only reminds me how much I hate linux (and ubuntu in particular) as I sit watching my freebsd image build from source. After that I'm hoping to build a shield clone image. Possibly win-arm too, But that would require no costs to me other than time.

    Add Directory To Library From Afar

    Hello! I manage a linux media server for my sister. She lives in a remote location and only has broadband internet. I built a linux server with emby on it with the intention of giving her an external USB drive from time to time with new content. I can only access this machine via SSH, but within the local network, Emby is working like a champ. My question is, how can I add the external USB to the Emby library via ssh? I tried to symlink the content into the existing library directory, but it doesn't appear to be working. The local hard drive is about 1TB and already full of content and the external hard drive is about 5 TB. I have it mounted in the same root directory as the current content. Any tips would be great! Thanks!
  9. Hello, I just upgraded to the new version of emby server Version 3.2.60.0 about 2 days ago and ever since then I have not been able to play any content: music, tv shows, or movies. I have tried the web interface on firefox as well as the android app but the error message is the same: Playback Error. No compatible streams are currently available. Please try again later or contact your system administrator for details. I have tried rebooting the server through the admin panel several times as well as restarting the physical server. Below I have attached the server logs and the transcoding logs. I have tried several types of media all of which I know worked in the past. The only thing I saw in the logs that was weird was "Permission denied" but like I said, it all worked before the update so I'm not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Local Network on Kubernetes

    Hi guys, So I've seen that quite a few are already running Emby in a Kubernetes Cluster. My setup currently looks like this: - One Kubernetes Node (I'm using K8s because I'm familiar with it and I like writing deployment-manifests :-) ) - A standard router from my ISP, doing port-forwards on HTTP & HTTPS - MetalLB assigning virtual IPs for loadbalancers (L2) - Nginx Ingress using a LoadBalancer, so it gets a virtual IP. uses Service with `externalTrafficPolicy: local`. - Emby using an Ingress-Resource, HTTPS, letsencrypt certificates. My issue though is that it seems like Emby considers everything to be the "local" network. From skimming through the logs: 2019-11-05 19:40:11.692 Info HttpServer: HTTP GET http://<mydomain>:8096/emby/Users/<key>. UserAgent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_15) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/13.0.2 Safari/605.1.15 2019-11-05 19:40:11.695 Info HttpServer: HTTP Response 200 to 127.0.0.1. Time: 3ms. http://<mydomain>:8096/emby/Users/<key> A few things: My Emby instance is not reachable under http://<mydomain>:8096, but rather on https://<mydomain>:443 (through the Ingress). It seems like Emby responds to the request to localhost?? This would explain why Emby considers everything to be local network. Anybody an idea why? Or what did you guys set to actually pass through the Source IP? Like mentioned before, I'm already using `externalTrafficPolicy: Local` for the nginx-ingress service. Also, for reference, the deployment yaml: apiVersion: app/v1 kind: Deployment metadata: name: emby-server labels: app: emby spec: replicas: 1 selector: matchLabels: app: emby template: metadata: labels: run: emby-server app: emby spec: containers: - name: emby-server image: emby/embyserver:latest env: - name: "UID" value: "1030" # emby user - name: "GID" value: "1111" # share group ports: - containerPort: 8096 name: emby-http volumeMounts: - mountPath: /config name: emby-config - mountPath: /mnt/media name: emby-media volumes: - name: emby-media hostPath: type: Directory path: /media - name: emby-config hostPath: type: DirectoryOrCreate path: /mnt/cluster/emby Total noob with emby, deployed it a couple of days ago. Any help would be appreciated.
  11. Hello, I’m wanting to try out Emby to see how it works for us and I’ll be installing it on an Intel NUC w/ Coffee Lake Core i7 setup running Linux Mint. I’m wondering what the advantages are of doing a standard install vs a Docker install? I’ve been searching online and don’t see much comparing the two. Is one easier than the other for initial setup or for long term maintainance? Any info would be brilliant! Thanks so much in advance!!
  12. Hi, I am a complete noob! Recently switched from Windows to Linux. I'm having trouble setting up my library with the files from NTFS drives created using windows. Can anyone tell me how to add files from other drives to my emby library? I'm using deepin x64bit (debian 9 based).

    How to Restore Ubuntu Server Settings

    Following the information from this link <https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/Backup> I am running into either some issues or questions. I backed up the following folders from my old Emby server. config data metadata plugins Following the guide I installed on the new server and copied the files in the same locations </var/lib/emby/...> /ProgramData/config /ProgramData/plugins /ProgramData/data/collections /ProgramData/data/displaypreferences.db /ProgramData/data/users.db /ProgramData/metadata here is the command I used sudo cp –a /home/<login username>/config/. /var/lib/emby/config I had to use sudo chown –R emby:emby /folder name sudo chmod –R 755 /folder name to make sure some of the folders had the permissions needed as they were showing the local user I start the server and my users I had created are not there, nor are any of my libraries Going through the settings, some of the information appears to be in place. Did I miss something, do something wrong?

    Cannot Add media, Library scanning never ends

    I am on Arch Linux, installed via the AUR. Many tutorials online show an "Add Media Library" button, however it seems to have been replaced with a system that begins a media scan? I do not want emby to be scanning my system, although it seems to be doing that already. I have terabytes of data, including what is on an external device. The media that I wanted to view in Emby is on an external device, and I changed the user and group of those videos to emby, hoping that Emby might pick them up in its scan while I try to figure out how to specifically add those files. I don't want Emby to scan my system. I want to add a folder or specific files to Emby. Anything I can do?

  17. Hello all. I apologize in advance if this is long and sound nuts. I have just about lost my mind as I have spent last 5 days on Google and these forums trying desperately to get Emby to work. (by the way I have seen the software work on a friend at work and was blown away so I immediately signed up for premiere account. So I know it is possible and will be great once I get it going. Only difference is I want to use Linux and not windows like my friend. Major Kudos to the developer for this awesome software.) To my problem, as stated in title, I'm running Emby on a (at first) headless Ubuntu server 18.04.3 and now due to difficulties I have installed the LXDE desktop environment to help trouble shoot. The install and Emby setup went fine and appears to be working. I can go to a Windows Host and access the Emby control panel and default user screen. The setup I want Emby on this Ubuntu Server ( 4GBs RAM, 250GB SSD) to be able to access and show my library that is going to be hosted (for now) on a Synology NAS (DS713+ 4TBs with latest updates). So far I have only uploaded about 3 movie MKV files to the share on the Synology. This share is "Videos". I was able to add it as a library in the EMby control panel and set up. I believe the issue has to do with permissions and access to the Synology share. (I also tried setting up a temp share on a windows client as well and cannot get Emby to scan that library either, so I am double convinced it is something I am doing wrong on the Linux side of things. Which can be seen in the attached Embylog.txt) On the Synology I have shared the Videos folder and given just about everyone read/write access to it, including an account I created called "emby" with NO password. It is not locked down and access should be wide open. I believe I need to mount this shared folder on the Ubuntu server so the emby account/service running there can access the folder and scan library. I am able to successfully mount the Synology Share folder "Videos" to either the / directory or within my users /home directory. BUT it seems that "ROOT" is always the owner of the mounted directory (both user and group). I cannot seem to find a way to change this? Also when I tried mounting it in the "/home" directory it says emby is owner and emby group, but still no access when I try to read/scan the library from Emby control panel. For example for the Home Mount I did: sudo mount -t cifs -0 username=emby,password=,uid=999,gid=999 //10.76.1.79/Videos ~/mnt/share Which does mount the directory of the Synology share and allows me to browse it. But when I try scanning my this library from Emby control panel it fails. (the log txt shows //JAYNAS which is the same as IP of 10.76.1.79) Here is another example I tried testing a mount to windows share: sudo mount.cifs //10.76.1.16/Video /windows-share -o user=emby This too worked and from linux side I can browse the share, but Emby server cannot scan library. (Here I do see owner as root and group as root so that is probably why, but I don't know how to fix this as "chown" fails on a mount and will not change permissions.) So if you have read this far: Is there any guide or install help that explains when running Emby from a Linux server how to get it to read a library from another Device (like NAS) or computer? Does it need to be a permanent mount in "/etc/fstab" and if so what account or permissions need to be assigned? Is this something specific to Synology Shares? (I dont think so as my Windows efforts have failed as well.) I'm going nuts as I feel there HAS to be a way to do this on Linux and it is probably simple, and I'm missing it. But the mounting of shares and permissions is killing me. ( I do not want to run this on Windows. Seems like there is a lot of windows help online and would be easier, but no. I love Linux and Open source too much and don't wish to go back unless there was no other way. I just currently suck at Linux administration obviously.) Thanks in advance whoever can read all this and possibly help. (Heck if a clear solution is found or commands in Linux that works, I'll go and write up a guide to help the next person here on the forums if allowed.) EmbyLog.txt

    Hardware transcoding

    Hi everyone ! I'm back after upgrading my graphic card ! I had trouble using transcoding because my old GT430 didn't support NVENC, but now i'm using an GTX980 I'm sure this big boy can easily transcode a lot of thing, but unfortunatly it won't... As u can see in dash board picture, it's using nvidia nvenc to encode but using sofware decode, i think this is the bottleneck here... How can i force using hardware decode instead of software ? Thanks for this awesome product Ben

    Safe to dump the cache (periodically)?

    Hi all. I have had the same Emby server running for well over a year now. I've noticed that sometimes when I click on a letter in any of my media libraries (which are all from different directories) sometimes the images wil not show, or the server will hang trying to filter down to my selection. Every once in a while, when I watch the log during these instances, I do not see any error messages show up. Instead, the server daemon will restart itself. Since I have had this running for quite a long time, and I have made additions, removals, and moving some media around, I wonder if perhaps my cache just might have some old/corrupt data in there. So I was wondering if it was ok to clean out that directory, and if so how often should/could it be done. I understand that new searches might take a while as it gets repopulated, but I only have my family using it so I'm not overly concerned with performance impact on this. Is this something that can be safely done on a monthly or a semi-annual basis? Thanks all!

    Transcoding Temp always full

    This has actually been happening for a while now. I don't usually trans-code only when i forget to unselect subtitles( Thank you for allowing use on roku to select No subtitles, which sometimes doesnt stick). I am on 4.1.0.26 on ubuntu 19.04 and this also would happened on ubuntu 18 and the previous emby servers. So its not an isolated issue or regression . I have attached a screenshot of my server with no activity and my hardrive full Anyone else having this issue?
  22. I have a small 7 min long TV show that my daughter watches. we have finished the series and we've come to watch them again on shuffle and we get thte following error on Roku and Amazon Fire box "unable to determine items to play" I've tried marking the "show" as watched andt then unwatched again the only fix so far is to delete the user and recreate them. not sure what logs to attach . any hints on how to fix this would be awesome regards

    Theater for Linux?

    I am wanting to dump Windows and move to Linux. (already done so for Emby server system). Is there Emby Theater for Linux??? Theater on Windows is very nice, especially now that I have got the mpv.cof thing figured out. But, so far, all i can see for Linux support, other than the sever will run on it, is web browser playback option....
  24. Hey, my emby Server setup: Ubuntu Server 18.04 Intel Xeon E-2126G (Quick Sync Video, H.265 encode/​decode, VP9 encode/​decode) P11C-I Intel No I stuck on get hardware transcoding working. I installed VAAPI but emby don´t show any available hardware transcoding settings. Is here a way to get it work?
  25. Hello, I just upgraded to the latest emby-server version and now I am unable to stream any content. This happens with any browser and any operating system (Windows, Edge, Linux, chromium based ...) After hitting the play button of a recording (tvheadend) or any media file (mkv, avi) I receive the following error: I tried rebooting the server and updating all software but nothing helped. I have tried several types of media all of which I know worked in the past. This is with the emby web player. Any help would be greatly appreciated. ffmpeg.txt embyserver.txt
