  1. Hi, im having problems with my Emby server, running on Linux. Out of nowhere, my server started having problems recognizing Movies and TV-Shows, as well as searching for images. I noticed as well, that I couldn't add Emby connect users to my local users, at least for one user, haven't tried with others, since they already have their emby connect user connected. I have attached the error log from the server, in which I noticed this exception at line 8314: System.Net.Http.HttpRequestException: System.Net.Http.HttpRequestException: An asynchronous socket operation is already in progress using this SocketAsyncEventArgs instance. ---> System.InvalidOperationException: An asynchronous socket operation is already in progress using this SocketAsyncEventArgs instance. Hope someone can help me Thanks Log (1).txt

    Library and Classifications

    Good Morning All, A long story short i`ve been using Emby for a number of years. I`ve recently rebuilt a brand new server having lost my old one (Divorce) using LMDE. My now partner has 3 children all under 18+. The oldest is asking for access to the Emby android application for me to give him an account. I`ve been thinking and i may not be doing this right but my thought was to move all the content, M15+ and higher into a separate directory and adding that as its own library item. If i do this does that mean Collections will still show the movies from that dir to my partners son if i only add that dir to myself and my partner?
  3. Original source Unix.stackexchange.com Thx to Adrian for this amazing script Since Emby doesnt have a proper scraper this will help to "fix" that Files to be renamed are all of the form [<tag>] <name> - <serial> [<quality>].mkv. Each anime has a lookup file called <name>.lst, listing the episodes in serial order, e.g. One Piece.lst contains: S01E01 S01E02 ... S01E08 S02E01 ... You use a bash shell at version 4 (minimum). #!/bin/bash # USAGE: canon_vids <dir> ... # Canonicalize the filenames of all MKV vids in each <dir> # All the anime lookup tables are in the lookup subdirectory # where canon_vids is stored lookup_dir="$(dirname "$0")/lookup" log_skip() { echo "SKIP ($1): $2" } find "$@" -name \*.mkv | while read f; do # Check filename against our desired pattern # (We don't want to rename what's already been renamed!) if [[ $f =~ /(\[[^]]+\])\ (.*)\ -\ ([0-9]+)\ (\[[^]]+\].mkv) ]]; then # We've now split our filename into: prefix="${BASH_REMATCH[1]}" name="${BASH_REMATCH[2]}" serial="${BASH_REMATCH[3]##0}" suffix="${BASH_REMATCH[4]}" # Some sanity checks if (( serial <= 0 )); then log_skip "$f" "Invalid serial# '$serial' for $name"; continue fi # Let's look up the episode episode="$(sed -n ${serial}p "$lookup_dir/${name}.lst")" if [[ -z "$episode" ]]; then log_skip "$f" "Can't find serial# '$serial' for $name"; continue fi mv -vn "$f" "${f%/*}/${prefix} ${name} - ${episode} ${suffix}" fi done And here's a bonus script that generates those lookup files, given the number of episodes in each season: #!/bin/bash # USAGE: generate_series <#eps> ... while [[ $1 ]]; do ((s++)) for e in $(seq "$1"); do printf "S%02dE%02d\n" $s $e done shift done Example: $ ls canon_vids generate_series # Create One Piece lookup table $ mkdir lookup $ ./generate_series 8 22 17 13 9 22 39 13 52 31 99 56 100 35 62 49 118 33 96 > lookup/One\ Piece.lst $ tail -n lookup/One\ Piece.lst S19E92 S19E93 S19E94 S19E95 S19E96 $ wc -l lookup/One\ Piece.lst 874 lookup/One Piece.lst # Create fake One Piece MKVs (adding a couple more to trigger errors) $ mkdir op $ for i in $(seq 0 876); do touch "$(printf "op/[TAG] One Piece - %02d [quality].mkv" $i)"; done $ ls op | wc -l 877 # And now, the moment of truth... $ ./canon_vids op renamed 'op/[TAG] One Piece - 724 [quality].mkv' -> 'op/[TAG] One Piece - S17E97 [quality].mkv' renamed 'op/[TAG] One Piece - 86 [quality].mkv' -> 'op/[TAG] One Piece - S06E17 [quality].mkv' ... renamed 'op/[TAG] One Piece - 819 [quality].mkv' -> 'op/[TAG] One Piece - S19E41 [quality].mkv' SKIP (op/[TAG] One Piece - 00 [quality].mkv): Invalid serial# '0' for One Piece renamed 'op/[TAG] One Piece - 52 [quality].mkv' -> 'op/[TAG] One Piece - S04E05 [quality].mkv' ... renamed 'op/[TAG] One Piece - 865 [quality].mkv' -> 'op/[TAG] One Piece - S19E87 [quality].mkv' SKIP (op/[TAG] One Piece - 875 [quality].mkv): Can't find serial# '875' for One Piece renamed 'op/[TAG] One Piece - 295 [quality].mkv' -> 'op/[TAG] One Piece - S11E69 [quality].mkv' ... renamed 'op/[TAG] One Piece - 430 [quality].mkv' -> 'op/[TAG] One Piece - S13E49 [quality].mkv' SKIP (op/[TAG] One Piece - 876 [quality].mkv): Can't find serial# '876' for One Piece renamed 'op/[TAG] One Piece - 655 [quality].mkv' -> 'op/[TAG] One Piece - S17E28 [quality].mkv' ... renamed 'op/[TAG] One Piece - 93 [quality].mkv' -> 'op/[TAG] One Piece - S07E02 [quality].mkv' renamed 'op/[TAG] One Piece - 278 [quality].mkv' -> 'op/[TAG] One Piece - S11E52 [quality].mkv' # OK, but what happens when we run it again?

    Emby and TVHeadend play nicely

    Thanks to all the contributions in this community, I have finally been able to get a setup of Emby, TVHeadend and our LG Smart TVs that works really well for me. I had a false start with the Emby TVHeadend plugin, which I am sure is working fine for others - unfortunately for me I couldn't get the TV schedule to update reliably, and sometimes it just went blank. When searching for a fix to these issues I saw a comment from Luke suggesting the use of the M3U tuner option. So here is where I have ended up: 1) Latest version of TVHeadend 4.3 tuned to Freesat UK with a DVB-S2 USB tuner on ubuntu 18.04 - TVH 4.3 required because I make use of the MPEG-TS/Spawn streaming profile 2) Hardware/VAAPI encoding streaming profile with FFMPEG - this makes use of the QuickSync encoding available on an Intel NUC with i3-7100 processor 3) Emby server connects to TVH via the M3U tuner options in Emby Live TV 4) A post recording script quickly converts the recorded MPEG-TS files to MP4 Details of the setup: 1) You can follow the install instructions for TVHeadend. The key is to install version 4.3 (it is named unstable, but seems pretty stable to me) as I wanted to make use of the Intel's VAAPI/QuickSync hardware encoder. Once installed, I created a MPEG-TS/Spawn streaming profile called 'mp4-h264-aac' with the following properties: 2) Create a bash script in /home/hts/scripts called h264aac.sh. Don't forget to make it executable with 'chmod +x h264aac.sh'. This script uses VAAPI and takes the video stream and english audio stream and converts to H264, Level 4.1, AAC audio, deinterlaces keeping the source frame rate and reasonable quality at the highest compression. The output container is MPEG-TS which is fed to the Emby server. It uses VAAPI hardware encoding which is pretty quick, and the CPU rarely gets above 10% usage while it is running. #!/bin/bash ffmpeg -loglevel info \ -hwaccel vaapi -vaapi_device /dev/dri/renderD128 -hwaccel_output_format vaapi \ -i pipe:0 -map 0:v -map 0:m:language:eng -sn \ -c:v h264_vaapi \ -quality 0 -compression_level 1 -qp 25 -level 41 \ -vf 'format=nv12|vaapi,hwupload,deinterlace_vaapi=rate=frame:auto=1' \ -c:a aac \ -f mpegts pipe:1 3) In your Emby server, using the Live TV options, add a M3U tuner with the following URL: http://user:password@server:9981/playlist/channels.m3u?profile=mp4-h264-aac This will load all the channels from your TVHeadend server using the newly created streaming profile. You will also need to add a TV guide provider, and I find that the new Emby one for the UK works well for me. 4) Finally you will need to convert the MPEG-TS files after they are recorded. MPEG-TS isn't seekable and so if you want to fast-forward or rewind during play, MP4 is more appropriate. In the DVR section on your Emby server you can define a post processing script. I set mine to "/var/lib/emby/video/convert.sh", and here is the script: #!/bin/bash # break up the input file name file=$(basename "$1") base=$(basename "$1" .ts) dir=$(dirname "$1") # transcode the file ffmpeg -y -i "$1" -map 0 -c copy "${dir}/${base}.mp4" # get the error code RC=$? if [ "${RC}" -ne "0" ]; then # had an error, so check if the output file exists # if so, remove the output file if [ -f "${dir}/${base}.mp4" ]; then rm -f "${dir}/${base}.mp4" fi else # all OK, so check if the output file exists # if so, remove the input file if [ -f "${dir}/${base}.mp4" ]; then rm -f "$1" fi fi The post-processing script runs in a few seconds after the recording has completed. It now means that the whole process from selecting the programme to record, to it being listed and ready to play in Emby anywhere, is fully automated and simple enough for anyone to use. Hopefully this lot will prove useful to someone.

Hello, I’m working on a little project to iterate through my NAS and convert all files that are not easily direct played through my Roku. I’m posting it’s Github page here, in case it is of use to anyone else. I’m very open to input, commits, suggestions, etc. I’d love for this to be useful to the community. https://github.com/gorgarp/BatchConverter/
  7. Hi There, I just completed a migration of my Emby Server beta running headless Centos 7.6 from a virtualized Hyper-V (2008 R2) to Bare Metal (Intel Core2 Quad Q9300 with Gigabyte [nvidia] GeForce GTX 1050 and SSD) for the added horsepower of dedicated CPU access and transcoding capabilities. I haven't done a whole lot to this OS in terms of setup. Clean minimal install of operating system update updated packages (yum) Install Emby Open Firewall Port install backup plugin restore backup from my VM What I'm struggling to determine is a) has emby detected my GTX 1050? is emby using my GTX 1050 to transcode? c) is there anything I might need to install (e.g. Nvidia drivers) to get this all working? I'm not 100% certain what it is I'm looking for in the logs to ascertain whether this is working or not. I'm attaching the latest Transcoding log and Hardware Detection Log. Thanks in advance HardwareDetection.txt Transcoding.txt
  8. Hi, I'm running emby as a docker container under the following system: Linux openmediavault 4.9.0-0.bpo.6-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.88-1+deb9u1~bpo8+1 (2018-05-13) x86_64 GNU/Linux Docker version 17.05.0-ce, build 89658be latest emby docker It crashes quite regularly (every 1-3 days, running 24/7). docker logs emby: Aborted s6-svscanctl: fatal: unable to control /var/run/s6/services: supervisor not listening [cont-finish.d] executing container finish scripts... [cont-finish.d] done. [s6-finish] syncing disks. [s6-finish] sending all processes the TERM signal. [s6-finish] sending all processes the KILL signal and exiting. Any idea what could be the cause here and how to go on with debugging?
  9. 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!

    Multiple dockers issue

    On the latest versions (3.6+), whenever I have more than one instance of emby running in docker, none of them work properly. The web ui doesn't respond, often takes too long to load and is generally unusable. It's almost like something is interfering between the different instances. As soon as I stop all dockers but one, it works flawlessly. I've made sure that every instance uses a different location for config and different ports. EDIT: I noticed that connect.txt in the data folder has the same value for both docker instances. Note that both docker containers are newly created and I haven't reused any data from one or the other. Could that explain the problem?

  12. Just bought a QNAP TS-231 which has an ARM processor in it, but so far the only builds of Emby I can find are for Intel CPUs :-( Any ideas if there's any way to get it running on my ARM processor? Or whether anyone's working on an ARM build??
  13. Arch Linux emby server filesystem ext4 The server detects when I delete a file but it doesn't detect if I move a file outside of library folder. I have to force a rescan to detect the changes.

    Performance grievance

    Hi, Currently Emby runs off my QNAP-653A with performance issues as soon as more than one device connects. Example: Apple TV4K playing one of my 1080P TV Shows (Transcoding: 21fps, 4.1Mbps ts H264 ac3 with the QNAP CPU running at 98%) Any other connected device makes it all collapse due to lack of CPU-power. All my network components are enterprise grade (Cisco Catalyst, port trunking for the NAS) and soon my internet connection is 1Gbps so i was really hoping to have the Emby server deliever my shows and movies to me on any device at any location even with my kid and wife watching stuff at home... It might be too much to ask from the NAS so I might install Emby on one of my old laptops (Dell M4600, i7, Nvidia Quadro2000, 16GiB RAM, 256 SSD, 1Gbps Ethernet, e-SATA) but before I proceed: 1. Shouldnt my devices at home play without transcoding? - Apple TV4K - Apple TV4K - Openelec Cubox-i4-Pro - ASRock Kodi on Linux 2. If i install Emby on the M4600 Dell Precision Laptop, how do i get the best performance? Linux or Windows? Will it take advantage of the Quadro 2000 GPU? 3. Should i run Emby on both at the same time? Let my mobile devices use the QNAP, internal devices on the M4600? would this cause any new grievance? Anyway to improve QNAP performance in case i go down this road, if it means typing some lines in putty/terminal thats not a problem... Best regards happy Premium-user since I noticed iOS offline was supported

    Upgrading OS on VPS -- which to choose?

    Upgrading from Debian Wheezy to something newer and am looking for advice/thoughts on which Linux distro would be best for running emby server, sabnzbd, etc. Just go for Ubuntu 18.04? Thanks.

    Server crash on media playback

    So for a little while I have been having issues playing movies, they will play for a few minutes then stop and the server will physically shutdown requiring a manual reboot. This does not seem to happen with tv shows but only movies. I also cannot get it to stop transcoding everything. I have a samsung smart tv 2014 running the emby app. I have also tried casting from an android phone and tablet to a chromecast or to the tv directly but all result in transcoding. I even tried using a ps4. I've attached the logs of the most recent incident but every movie I have tried to play recently does the same thing. ServerLog1.txt ServerLog2.txt TranscodingLog.txt

    Server fails on trancoding audio

    Hey, I'm still learning Emby, moving away from Plex. I don't seem to be able to sync any audio to my phone. Whatever the settings (bitrate), transcoding fails (whether from FLAC or MP3, whether from playlist, album or an individual song). I'm attaching a log. I'm on Ubuntu 18.04, the latest emby server as of now (Version beta). There's some problem here: [NULL @ 0xff2fc0] Unable to find a suitable output format for '/var/lib/emby/sync/12/41/f9683eab-6e45-4945-ba8b-462fffdcf8dc' /var/lib/emby/sync/12/41/f9683eab-6e45-4945-ba8b-462fffdcf8dc: Invalid argument Emby-log.txt
  19. I've been holding off on upgrading Emby, hoping that some day the repo will be fixed. Everything was working fine until a few days ago when I began to get an error when accessing app.emby.media. I can't access my Emby server from app.media.emby until I upgrade according to the message. Is there a workaround for this? I've ran a whole lot of Linux servers over the years and the current method Emby is using, unzipping a file you download every update, is a really poor practice. It can lead to a total package mess. Is there any way to get this update through a managed repository (the proper way of doing things!) or do I just have to suck it up, go against best Linux practices and try to do a totally messy upgrade and hope my Emby server comes out intact on the other side? Thanks.
  20. I've specified a specific directory for cache, metadata, transcoding etc. The server is not using the cache directory specified for storage. I'm using Emby Docker version on Unraid. I've specified it to use path /mnt/Emby/transcode/cache Looking at that path there's around 350M of data in it. So Emby is writing to it. But the majority of my cache is in the default location /cache/ as this folder is around 600M. How do i move all the cache from /cache into the specified cache. I don't know why there is any cache there as i moved the cache location when i first setup the sever.
  21. I have a trip coming this week and wanted to sync a couple of movies on my 2-in-1 Samsung TabPro S and have a few issues I've been seeing in the log. Attempting to sync a DVD of Fifth Element produces the following in the log: Unknown encoder 'mpeg2video' Also, attempting to sync a Blu-Ray rip of The Dark Knight says the same except the encoder is "vc1". My server is Linux Mint (planning to go full Ubuntu Server very soon) which is based on Ubuntu 14.x. I have never had any issues with my server so far, BTW, so this is very out of character. I rip my movies using a paid version of MakeMKV. The movies will stream fine if just playing even from the Windows 10 app. The issue seems to be with sync only. Also, in trying to sync other movies some of them are fine but others have a really, really long duration (like thousands of hours) making seeking impossible. The movie will play fine but the duration is WAY out of whack. Has anyone else experienced this? I didn't attach logs right now because I was just wondering if this is a known issue already (?). Any help would be appreciated.
  22. Great application and work, having an issue on my newest Roku Streaming Stick Details: Emby Server - On Linux (ubuntu) version : Emby Roku App - version 3.0 build 91 Roku Device: 3800x version: 8.1.0 build 4145-55 On loading Emby the screen flashes white on and off repeatedly. I have created a gif of what this looks like.

    How to Force User to Log Out

    Hey all, I have an uncomfortable social situation I'd like to avoid passively, if possible. My partner logged into her Emby Connect account on her old roommate's Xbox, so she could access my server while she lived there; she's moved out and isn't on the best of terms with them now, and I'd prefer to disconnect her account from that Xbox without contacting the roommate directly. I've reset her password on the server, but it isn't forcing her to sign back in when she launches the app on devices she controls. I've restricted devices that have access to the server, but that also isn't ideal as the device list doesn't seem to list every device the account has connected from - it requires some babysitting to enable/disable the devices I want/don't want to connect. I realize this is more of a social problem than a technical one, but it would make my life a lot easier if I could solve it technically; is there some way to force her account to simply re-authenticate before it can access my server? She says she's reset her Emby Connect password already, and I've searched around to see if someone's addressed this before. Thanks in advance.

    Identify Issues

    Emby Server Version on Linux Mint 19 Tried to search the forums and find a answer but nothing was quite clear and the word Identify doesnt seem to be unique enough. Just got done rebuilding my whole linux server as I was attempting to upgrade from the older repo provided emby to the new one and wrecked everything. There really should be warnings for that on the install page or something. Too many results just say run the new version over the old one. Any who this time around I renamed everything so it would identify better with the automatic detection, however I have a few stragglers that need manual detection. When I use the identify tool I no longer seem to be able to immediately identify movies with IMDB id anymore. No results show up. I did see some forum posts back in February stating that emby doesnt search that database anymore (What happened?) But I wanted to confirm. So I attempted to use the movidb which does have the movie in its database but that doesnt return any results either. But I am not quite sure what that website uses for its "ID" as with IMDB I just used the number in the web address. One of the Movies in question is Frank Herberts Children of Dune: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0287839/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 https://www.themoviedb.org/tv/9156-frank-herbert-s-children-of-dune?language=en I cant seem to get the Emby Server to ID that. Soooo what am I doing wrong if anything. Also any way to make that back button in that Identify window actually go back to the search instead of closing the whole window? Really annoying.
  25. Around a week ago I installed Emby on my Kubuntu PC. I didn't understand Emby and thought that it would be an application. Instead it turned my machine into a Multimedia Server. So cool once it's set up it's always on and no maintenance. My needs are basic. All I want to do is to have a file linked to Emby and any movie in that file will stream to the devices on my home network. I do not want to stream remote for security purposes. I followed the install instructions on the internet where I downloaded the file and it was really easy. I did have trouble getting it connected to my Fire stick because the port was closed in my software firewall. I opened port I think it's 8095 in my software Firewall and then no problem hooking into the Amazon Fire stick. Not an Emby problem. Around a week later I bought a Roku Express for my daughter and installed in her TV. Emby wouldn't connect. I waited a few days and my router choked and I had to reboot it. A little later I went back to try to get Emby working and to my surprise, Wallah the Roku recognized and connected to the server with no prodding. Seemed my router needed to be reset. Lesson learned if I ever have trouble connecting a new device to Emby reset the router. I proceeded to install on my Android Phone and again it was brainless. It just recognized and entered Emby Server with no prodding. So fast it made my head spin. Emby is fantastic on Linux Kubuntu/Ubuntu. Basically I hooked a file up to synchronize and everything I copy to that file shows up on my devices to be streamed. It's running in the background no maintenance required. Also no glitches waking up from sleep either. On the Roku it's running fast. So anyway If you have Kubuntu or Ubuntu and want to simply use Emby to stream movies within your home network I recommend it highly. BTW the resolution of the movies look great.
