  1. Hello Folks, After the success of getting a count of the current NowPlayingItem entries in the Sessions API, I am now trying to get a list of the Users and what they are currently playing - then send that to my InfluxDB to show in my Grafana server. I am nearly there with this command line, but cannot quite get it so that JQ only shows those session users who are actually playing something... wget -q -O - "http://localhost:8096/emby/Sessions?api_key=3469exxxxxxxxxxxxxxx201ef3f" | jq -M '.[].UserName, .[].NowPlayingItem.Name' will show me the following... null "Paul" "Trace

    Optimizing scanning Library

    Hey guys, Been using emby on Linux for quite some time now. However after a new install on a clean machine, while importing my existing files. I encountered some performance issues. After looking at it it seems the library scanning process only will utilize 1 core at a time. The ffmpeg process that is forked for the chapter images is explicitly started with -threads 1. Is there any option to increase that ? Or is it limited that way due to locking issues ? On current systems it would speed up these processes quite a lot if multiple threads where forked. Even if ffmpeg was only f

    Thinking of changing OS to MAC

    So I have been thinking for awhile of changing my Servers OS to MAC. This is mostly due to the intrusive updates that are forced on us Windows10 Users and the bloatware that is constantly being reinstalled by these forced updates. Like xbox gamebar, etc and several others. I did figure out that by using Shell i can remove a lot of these programs I dont want or use but whenever their is an update these programs are forced back onto my PC using Data, which is expensive nowadays, and disc space which I like to keep clear for my needs not Microsofts attempt to get me to use programs I have ZERO in

    Hi ! So this night with no reason, my emby server decided to not transcode movies and all of stuff on it. Here is my log file : https://paste2.org/9cFkEk0p
  6. I recently set up Emby on my PC running Linux so that my mom could easily watch stuff on her Chromecast, and it worked great. I use both Windows and Linux (specifically Pop Os) and today I booted up Windows and configured Emby there too. Everything seemed to be working fine until my mom told me she was unable to get Emby working on her Chromecast (stuck on "Ready to Cast"), which seemed weird because I tried it on mine and worked perfectly. After trying several times, restarting, opening ports, etc., I just decided to try booting the server on Linux, and her Chromecast works now! The only prob

    One Piece naming, Help!!!

    I am done with naming One Piece Episodes. Previously i watched Naruto and Naruto Shippuden without any headache (Thanks to this forum post - Naruto file naming) I have downloaded total of 837 episodes. Initially, it was named 'One Piece - 001 to One Piece - 837'. After library scan, both "Absolute" and "Aired" order, i get this annoying problem. This never happened with Naruto or Naruto Shippuden , episodes named S01E001. I tried naming 'One Piece - S01EXXX, One Piece - S020EXXX' etc. Moreover, i tried 'One Piece - S01EXXX to One Piece S01E837'. Yet i face this annoying problem.

  9. Hi, I’m moving my Emby install due to install issues with my distro. When I moved Emby to the current distro, instead of pulling the metadata from the saved NFO files and the images also saved within the media itself, it pulled from online - even when there wasn’t any data and overwrote a bunch of data that I had worked really hard to get right. Now I have to start all over fixing those erasing days of work that I have to redo now. Is there a way to get Emby to pull from the saved NFO and images first - and only download if I’m missing metadata so that it doesn’t overwrite the good data

    Poster image issues

    Hi, I’ve been trying to clean up my Emby install/media since I moved it to a different distro. I’m trying to get my images all the way I want them. I’ve noticed a lot of them are quite small (around 400x550ish). When I click on the search icon to find another image, then I click on the image, I’m having something strange. Used, to, Emby would just use the new image and the image chosen would be whatever size it is in the search option (often 1000x1500). However, now, even though the images are actually 1000x1500, when I choose the, Emby is somehow reducing their resolution to the 400x550 (i
  12. Hello, I recently moved over my Emby install from Linux Mint over to an OpenSUSE Tumbleweed install. A lot of it went fairly smoothly but playlists are not one of them. There are a lot of my playlists showing up, many have duplicates - about half with the correct photo half with no photo. When I click on any of them playlists, none of them show any files actually in the playlist so it can’t play anything. Moreover, when I go to TV shows or movies to add items into the empty playlists, when I click on add to playlist and it should bring up all the existing playlist options, there is a

    Playlists - need help understanding

    Hello, We use playlists a lot for video files. In fact, it’s the primary reasons we moved over from Plex, because Emby has so many more options for dealing with playlists. However, in using it, I’ve learned that there is an oddity with the way that Emby deals with playlists. When Emby makes a playlist, if more than one version of a file exists, Emby chooses a non-specific or random version of the title that you add to the playlist. The user has no idea which version it chooses or why. It won’t always choose the highest or lowest resolution, or the mkv or HEVC. There’s no apparent rhyme o

    Emby Misbehaving

    Hello, I’m having a few issues with Emby. I’ve worked hard on my current install making all the images and metadata correct. I have all data and images being saved into the media folders. Everything was pretty much setup when suddenly, all my movies had no images showing at all (oddly descriptions/metadata is fine, it’s only the images that seem to be the problem. I can’t figure out what’s wrong and can’t seem to sort this out without overwriting all the custom metadata, too. The images are in fact, in the folders (I checked) but Emby isn’t actually pulling/viewing them from within the fold
  15. Hi, I’m trying to setup Emby on my Intel NUC. I’m new to OpenSUSE Tumbleweed (though not to Linux) and I’m struggling to get this sorted out. I’ve had Emby running on Mint for sometime now. Goal: to setup & use Emby (Emby software apps is already installed and running) Hurdle: give Emby access to the media files (stored on external HDDs) I have external hard drives formatted as exFAT and NTFS (I’m working on switching them all over to exFAT but not there yet). I currently have my primary username set as the owner of the drives and the group is set to “users” (of whic

    Nvidia HW transcoding not working

    Hi everyone! I am using Emby since years now and I am overall very satisfied with it. I recently wanted to step up the game so I purchased a GTX 1650 to do some HW transcoding (I was using software transcoding). So I did that, I followed all the guide I could find on how to install the Nvidia-driver than afterward the docket integration. Because yes my server was on Docker. I could not get it to work, i had a lot of errors in the transcode logs, and under Emby --> Transcode --> Advanced - I had no options there to check. So I found out that HW transcoding on dock

    Live TV Linux (ARM64) M3U fails

    Hi All, this is my first post, I joined to post a bug, I tried searching but could not find this error, nor in-fact, could I find a reference on how to post bugs, so here it is. EDIT: now I created an account I can now see "How to Report a Problem", odd I could not find this as a normal user.

    Emby Server requires write access

    Alright so recently I had a crash because my OS SSD filled up. I run a 60gb SSD (which ive been meaning to upgrade) and I have always had emby store metadata and pictures and such within the media file locations. I also offload the transcoding temp location because at any given day its floating ~15-20gb of usage. I noticed the drive had 16gb of transcoding files for some reason. Reviewing my settings I tried to set my transcoding temp location and it throws the below error: "Emby Server requires write access to this folder. Please ensure write access and try again."

I whant to suggest to do something like plex have done to allow users to click on the links in the description and they have some more stuff like appear the actor info (Not sure if you can do that on emby "appear youtube channel as a actor") btw this is some printscreen to show you what i mean. It can be usefull to be able to read it like that (Paragraphs, clickable links, and if possible show the

    No Compatible Streams

    I'm having trouble playing certain audio files. *.mp3 and *.flac all work fine, but *.m4a throw a playback error, "No Compatible Streams Found". I enabled debug logging, but nothing comes up related to the files I try to play. I also looked at the directory permissions - Emby is able to read and write to the music directory. Emby is at version and I'm using the official docker image. My core configuration can be found here, and I have an override as well: ############################### # Emby # ############################### emby: volumes:

    Use correct rights

    Good day together i am very happy about ember and try to set it up on raspbian currently, after it worked fine in windows. my problem is the permissions of the folder structure though. My noticed bug: My folder structure for the movies is /media/pi/Mainstoragedrive/emby/movies/dvd/ If I want to add the folder in Emby. This folder is on my external drive. I can click through to "pi" and then the dropdown menu always closes. It is also not possible to add manually "The path could not be found. Please ensure the path is valid and try again.
