    Movie/Music folder report

    Hello everyone, I was to join mp3 (audio) folder on my emby server but it doesn't work. There was already an folder with movies. But when i put the mp3 folder i cant see the mp3's. When i deleted the movie folder and did the mp3 folder first and afther the movie folder, it works fine for me! maybe someone have the same issue... so here the solve in emby webclient: 1. Delete ur movie folder 2. Put your MP3 folder named music or els 3. Then put your movie folder back. Hope you enjoy this Koenske
  2. I guess this picture pretty much explains the situation I'm having. Happened for a few albums, Emby correctly identifies them, but doesn't replace the artwork for all songs.
  3. I'm on server version 3.0.5781, and sometimes, Emby doesn't pick up musicbrainzID's for certain music files, although they are all properly tagged with the MBID. Can anybody confirm this behaviour?

    Emby for Kodi - No Access to Music

    Hey all; I've been using Emby since it was Media Browser 2, so I'm pretty familiar with it. That being said, it's my first time attempting to get it to work using Kodi as a front-end for it. I'm attempting to do so on a relatively new platform too -- the nVidia Shield Android TV. Initial setup seemed relatively painless: Copy the .zip to a USB thumbdrive Install Emby Add-on from .zip Install Emby Add-on from Repository (picked Music Add-on/Video Add-on, and a couple other options as well) Kodi auto-detected my server, and I selected the user that I wanted to use for this profile Scanning of my library began At first, Kodi had detected all of my songs, but none of them would show up under the Music heading. I knew that it had detected them all because when I clicked into Settings, it would give me a count of them in the header. After some playing around however, most of them show up. Some of them aren't listed properly... some are listed as "Singles" ... but that's a different issue, and appears to be one that the community is aware of. My main problem is that none of the files actually play any music. They all work correctly from Emby, and even from Kodi when I install it on my phone, and attempt to go through the same process, however, when I try from the Android TV device, I get an error message saying that it couldn't locate the next file to play. At this point in time, I'm not sure if music is supported by the add-on, but I wanted to report this issue, and find out if anyone else is having troubles with this also. FYI: I've tried adjusting a number of the settings - such as ones to stream instead of directly accessing the files through the network. After adjusting these types of settings, I've done full database resets from the add-on, manually synching etc... all to no avail. I've also tried modifying the way that my libraries are configured in Emby. I've tried using UNC paths, and I've tried configuring them using the standard Windows paths as well. It should also be noted that video files have no troubles playing, the only problem is with Music. It should also be noted that music files were my main motivating factor for attempting to use Kodi as a front-end, as I believe that the Android TV app doesn't yet support music. Hopefully it will one day. Also, hopefully I'm correct in assuming that it's not supported by the Emby for Android TV app. I haven't found a way to get it to work there yet either. Thanks for any help you can provide. Paste of my log file is included at the following link: http://pastebin.com/sWZ7QXJJ

    Suppress Certain Items From Showing

    Is there a way that I can force Emby to NOT show certain items on the main screen? My PC doesn't have a tuner card, so the Recorded TV, Live TV and Guide folders are redundant. Moreover, I tried adding the Music folder into Emby and it conflicts with the way Windows Media Player works, so I don't use Music as part of my media collection.
  6. In my music library, multi-disc albums are not detected correctly. Meaning that all the songs from both discs are showed under the same disc so on the same album I end up with two tracks number 1, two tracks number 2, etc, as you can see in the attached screenshot. Moreover, even when each disc folder has the correct artwork files, Emby is not showing any artwork at all. I'm running Emby server 3.0.5724.6 (latest stable version) on CentOS 7. I double checked that I'm following the correct naming guidance from Emby's website (example folder organization attached in a screenshot). I can upload a library scanning log if needed but I didn't see any errors at all. Thanks.

    Music library reset

    Is it possible to "reset" ONLY the music library to restart with a clean fresh one? I'm having different and strange problems with my music library and I would like to do a complete refresh of it, starting with a cleant and empty one. Would removing the music library, and adding it again achieve this? I'm open to do some sqlite "surgery" with the proper guidance. I'm running Emby server 3.0.5724.6 on CentOS 7. Thanks

    Broken Record (sorry)

    Hi there Luke and the team, I didn't know where to put this one, and sorry to sound like a broken record. Are there any plans for the following Favourites tabs (or something), mainly for sync and so I don't look like a prat shouting "shuffle my favourite songs" in the car. Maybe with quick buttons to sync favourite songs, shuffle favourite songs etc, the voice command is cool but doesn't always work great in the car with background noise while Bluetoothed to the head unit and a wobblegob wife and child on the go. Playlist resume, auto playlist resume recognisable by what you are connected to, i.e. if I connect in the car it knows just to resume what I was listening to, there is a bit of an issue where, if the charger is connected and I power cycle, i.e. waiting in the car park for the wobblegob, paying for fuel etc. it forces the app to refresh and I have to start from scratch, usually shouting shuffle my favourite songs. Also, i was thinking of investing in an android head unit for the car so I could have Emby playing directly with no bluetooth connection and hopefully some steering wheel control so these functions would be great. 2 steps away from my music wet dream. Just some ideas, if you can fit them in.

    No music on Android 4.2.2

    Tested on two android smartphones: Versions are 4.2.2 and 5.0.2 Video plays fine on both of them, subtitles are also supported correctly. Music plays fine on 5.0.2 but immediatly leads Emby to crash on 4.2.2. Attached are logs from server and both androids. Emby Android version is 2.3.80 on both 5.0.2 and 4.2.2 Emby Server version is 3.0.5675.1 Thanks android.app.4.2.2.log android.app.5.0.2.log server-63573588712.txt
  10. Good afternoon guys Firstly, thank you for the emby.kodi work, it's definitely my preferred way forward :-) Some help if you don't mind? With reference to http://xbmclogs.com/pq10enut4 I can't get music playback to work on my Nexus Player (movies work fine) This was working about a month ago on earlier server/addon versions. All is working on my windows 10 NUCs I'm not sure if it is something I have messed up but have rebuilt the NP in case but no change. Thanks in advance
  11. Currently when viewing a music genre we have the option to view Albums or Songs. Can you add an option to view by Artist as well? Emby for WMC does this, though it might be theme-dependent there.
  12. Hi guys, I was wondering if there was an easy way to force the server to re-download all my music album art to use 1000x1000 images where available. I tried an advanced refresh of all images, but it didn't seem to use the higher res ones. Thanks! Edit: Ok, so I just figured out this one myself, so I should have tried harder (my bad). For anyone wanting to know the answer, try this setting under Metadata>Services>Music Albums:
  13. Hi, The problem i'm describing is happening on the android app, but started happening with the latest server update. When I use the voice command "Shuffle my favorite songs" (very cool, it works well) it seems to be shuffling the same few songs every time, as if it was doing an instant mix. I just checked it on the web interface and it is doing the same. Would love it if it was as before.
  14. We do already havge the section in album view "if you like xxx you might also like", which is nice. In the Artist view page, we show the discs / songs of the artists - could we add a section below "Similar Artists" - this would make it more fluently to find alternative artists of a certain style.
  15. I've been having a problem recently where some album artists and some albums won't download info from the internet even when I provide the specific MusicBrainz info. This isn't happening for obscure artists--Adele is an artist where the info never fills even though I have provided all of the Musicbrainz info. The update circle goes around and around and nothing ever fills in. I thought it might be a Firefox issue so I tried Emby on Chrome but the same thing kept happening. I'm using Emby Version 3.0.5666.4 on a Windows 7 computer. My preferred browser is Firefox. Server log: http://paste2.org/pXvfLmGF

    Music playlist stops playing

    Hi there, I'm no sure if I found a bug or is just a missuse case. If you stop playing a song from a playlist to jump to another one, then the web client will only play the new song and stop playing at the end of it, instead of continue playing the rest of the playlist. Repro steps: Create a music playlist with the "Instant Mix" feature for example (most of the time I'm using the "Instant Mix" feature since I love it). The playlist will start to play. Go to the playlist view and choose any other song from the list and clic on "Play" from the menu. Let the song play and the web client will stop playing at the end of the song and it will play the rest of the playlist. Shouldn't the web client continue playing the rest of the playlist? If this is not the case, would it be possible to add a "Play all from here" to the menu? Thanks!
  17. MBServer: Version 3.0.5083.27698 MBClassic: Version B12-4.1 MBTheater: Not installed PC Server OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1 Codecs: Nothing other than installed with Win7 out of the box and MBServer Extender: HP MediaSmart Connect x280n I would appreciate some guidance on the MB3 preferred library structure for multi-disc music CD's to avoid multiple album/CD entries. I have just gone through a retagging exercise (thanks Luke) with Media Monkey which has greatly improved the information pulled from the tags in recent versions of MB3 Server. I did have the CD's stored as... \Music \Artist Name \Album Name - Disc 1 1- Song.mp3 2- Song.mp3 \Album Name - Disc 2 1- Song.mp3 2- Song.mp3 ...which resulted in multiple entries per album/CD and doesn't always automatically display Disc 1/Disc 2 in the name from the folder structure. Now I have renamed the physical file tracks on the discs to reflect their respective discs, tagged them as disc 1, disc 2, and combined folders as below... \Music \Artist Name \Album Name 101- Song.mp3 102- Song.mp3 201- Song.mp3 202- Song.mp3 ...but this results in duplicated track numbers and straight album play would then jump back and forth from disc/track 101 to disc/track 201, 102, 202, 103, 203, etc. Is there a track file naming convention that will let me combine disc folders and get me to the sequential track order from disc1, then disc 2 to disc x? Or, am I going about it all wrong? Thanks, Tanamur

    Music Playlist

    Is it possible to create a music playlist on emby so that I can have continuous and/or looping playing of music in a folder. I playback on my Roku, but I wasn't sure where to post this question. Also, when I'm using music files on Emby; do I need to edit their audio file tags?

    No music tabs

    In the latest beta version 3.0.5641.1, if I go into the web client and then music, I do not have any options to view by albums, genre, artists, etc. Has this been temporarily removed? https://www.dropbox.com/s/6ulaznnn4w4pga7/Screenshot%202015-06-12%2009.00.02.png?dl=0
  20. Luke Have a music library with some 65,000 tracks and I have noticed that the AlbumArtist and Artist views refuse to populate. Get a spinning circle for a minute or so and then nothing. Same issue as with the previous version.
  21. Instant Mix is not working on the web interface. When I click the instant mix button I get this error in the console: I am using Ubuntu and chrome to access the web interface.
  22. Hi community, I have one question regarding the media library structure for music. According to the wiki at the github project page the recommended way to organise music is: \Music \Artist Name \Album Name 1- Song.mp3 2- Song.mp3 But what's about albums with multiple artists like compilations or original soundtracks? What is the recommended way to organize those albums? If I create a folder for soundtracks and compilations mediabrowser detects those folders as artists! Regards, cyfreezer
  23. I am unable to set / see, a custom "MUSIC" EHS image from the web UI in Windows 7 with the release server Version 3.0.5597.1 It works for Movies, TV, .. but not Music. Something is up with it. EDIT: After restarting the server.. and trying again and again, it did work eventually. Not sure what the problem with that was as the server has been restarted since I added in the music paths etc.
  24. Hello, I was wondering if there was any way to force a single genre on all my music by directory. My music collection is organized into folders by genre and the genres that have been pulled from the internet for my music are really weird (my personal favorite being "Acoustic Memphis Blues Blues Blues Music Pop Prewar Country Blues" which is not a useful tag). What I want to be able to do is change the metadata in Media Browser Server of an entire directory of music to one single genre and remove all other genres. Not just for aesthetics and organization but so I can shuffle a folder of music. I tried creating a playlist from a large directory of music and it fucked everything up so bad I actually had to re-install the server from scratch. Is this possible? Edit: Or if I change the genre metadata field using a different program, how do I get Media Browser to recognize it and not download the metadata from the internet?
  25. Hi there, Like many other users (probably) I have a huge music collection and growing. I use emby for this more than anything. I would love to see individual songs (repeats) grouped by Artist, Title. The reason for this is mainly for likes, favorites, playcounts etc. Also if I filter down or am in a playlist and I have added a song that is a low bitrate maybe the system could recognize this and automatically substitute it for a higher bitrate or album version of the same song. And when on the web client when I drill down to song level it will tell me what albums or playlists the song is in and even link to a music video. Also can we have play counts back? I will donate £20 for this feature, and £20 for the next etc. Emby is the cornerstone of my life and I love it so.
