  1. DSM 7, x64 Emby 4.6.7.0 No matter what setting configuration, artist metadata from a newly created music library will never be downloaded at all despite any type of scan EXCEPT a personal, individual, one-by-one refresh. Steps to reproduce: Enable appropriate settings when creating the library (see pics). Library finishes import and no artist metadata is saved like it should be. Manually trigger a scan, meta refresh, literally try any scan possible for the library. Still, no artist metadata is saved like it should be again. Music library settings upon creation: Things tried: Checking/unchecking NFO settings (Both after the library was already created, AND after deleting the library and starting from scratch with the settings checked). Changing music folder structure to "other or unstructured" (After deleting the library and starting from scratch with the setting). The only way I am able to get an artist's meta to download is by manually going to their specific page and performing a metadata refresh on just them. Still, this method does not work if the two "NFO" options are unchecked. It doesn't make any sense. Why are all of the SAME options perfectly functional for video libraries but just flat out don't work for music libraries for years? How? Furthermore, half of the settings literally do absolutely nothing at all. This includes: Metadata readers/savers - Unlike a movies or tv library that populates nfo files next to the content on the HDD, the settings for a music library seemingly do nothing. Save artwork into media folders - Nope, just flat out doesn't work / has been broken for at least 2 years. Every time I bring it up it's somehow twisted around that I am misunderstanding the feature and it's working as intended. Again, works just great for both my movies and tv libraries. Does nothing at all for the music library. Can provide video evidence of everything if necessary, a remote session, just about anything to get this solved. No logs or anything of the sort should be necessary. I can easily install a brand new, fresh Emby server, add a music library and watch the same results happen every time
  2. I've just upgraded from a 4.3 version to the latest (4.6.4.0). I have a very carefully curated music library where many albums have programme notes (not sure what to call these - summaries, overviews, outlines, reviews - whatever terms you prefer), and fanart / backgrounds. These were being picked up nicely by emby before the upgrade but have now disappeared. They are deployed as background.jpg in the album directories, and I have also created album.nfo files. Hopefully there's something simple I'm doing wrong! Sample album is below - see the jpg and nfo files listed, and the structure of my album.nfo below them. Thanks for any assistance.

    Music Libary after Emby Update

    Hi, after Updating my Emby from a Version 4.5.x.x to 4.6.4.0 my Music libary is broken. YES, I read something about a rescan of the music libary etc, but the rescan doesn't seem to change anything. Even setting the kind of structure from "different" to one of the "perfectly structured" options doesn't change anything. I have a few Thousand Song all structured in A -> Musicans -> Albums -> Tracks B -> Musicans -> Albums -> Tracks and so on. What is very strange is, it shows exactly 4 Musicans in the libary and exactly 1 Album of each of these musicans.... I don't really get how that could happen. Ideas how to fix this? What of the 3 structure options should I choose for my structure or do I have to restructure it and put all musicans in the root folder?
  4. I have been using the finamp app for jellyfin and I think emby needs to create its own or even clone this as jellyfin comes from emby's code so should not be too hard I believe. The reason I am writing this is because emby needs a separate music app which me and others have been requesting for a long time and even though finamp is not complete it has been great for daily use compared to the full emby and jellyfin apps. Thanks
  5. After upgrading to Emby Server 4.6.4.0 my music library no longer displays graphics. Every MP3 song of every album in my collection contains an embedded album image. Each folder includes a folder.jpg. I also did a new library scan after the upgrade. So I don't know why the views are all blank now. - How can I fix this or is this a problem of the Emby server release?
  6. Hi, Could it be possible to add sub-filters for some existing filters on emby. Example with the filter 'Etiquette' in my library if I select "opera" it displays all the songs with this etiquette, by alphabetical order (this is a lot of songs I would like to sort them by album for a more readable screen . Could it be sorted like in the filter "Genres" for example ? Thanks for your help. EtPv
  7. Hi there. I'm using Emby for classical music. After few weeks, some features could be appreciated. I'll post in different topics to make it more readable. First : It looks like there's a limit in 30 songs displayed by album. Would it be possible to allow users to modify this or including multi-pages navigation for lists with 40 or more songs ? Thanks, EtPv
  8. Can it adapt to the non-square album cover by filling a solid color background instead of directly stretching it. The look and feel of directly stretching the album cover is very ugly.
  9. Hello Emby experts. I again, need your help Emby's new version (4.6.4) works well on my Syno with DSM 7, without one feature missing, and not working.. My collection is mainly classical music files, and I'm trying to use the "modifying metadatas" interface to add new contributors to an album or a track. See the print-screen below (sorry in french). Unefortunatly it's not possible to add new topics (in addition to compositor, it would be usefull to add new kind of contributors : Singer, Musician, etc..). That my request for a new feature I wonder If someone from the Emby team or other user is interested in this. Also, at the moment, when I try to add someone, I don't get any message, but the new item is not registered. Is there any spécific configuration to make this working ? I can modify the other fields without any problem. Thank you for any help. Etienne Emby For Synology 4.6.4 NAS : DS718+ DSM 7.0
  10. I think this would be a nice feature to have. Maybe something similar to how windows media player handles this and the admin user can edit just by clicking on stars next to song. This would be easier and faster than having to go into metadata and change for every song you want to rate. This can be useful for smart playlists. If ten stars is too much then use five and have half a star counts as 1.

    Android auto sounds muffled

    When listening to music in Emby through android auto, there are occasional instances where the music comes out very muffled/garbled. It almost sounds like I'm listening to music underwater or something. Does anyone know what is causing this issue?
  12. Playing music on android phone, tablet, on PC all scrobble to last.fm. Playing music on the Google TV version of Emby, last.fm has now playing notice but permanent scrobbles don't post. This was happening before 4.6 update to the Emby Server and is still the same since 4.6* server updates. All the plays of music are in Activity on the server. All the music is played via my last.fm connected account.
  13. Unfortunately the update to 4.6.2.0 removed all downloaded music from all devices. "manage downloads" list everything with 0 tracks now.
  14. Hi, i really like all the improvements made in 4.6 and the fix of duplicate entrys in recently played songs in 4.6.2.0 works fine. But after the update i had a ton of new albums in my music. It seems like if there is an album with different artist, there is now an album for every combination of these artist and the album. For example, there is a movie soundtrack with ten different songs by ten different artist. Before the update to 4.6.2.0 this was shown in emby as a single album. Now it is shown as ten different albums each containing just a single song.

    Music - an overview/help please

    Ok, so I've used emby from way back when it was a windows media server plugin - but I've never used it for music until now. I've decided to drop my spotify account and use emby instead. I uploaded all my music to the music directory and let emby scan it and sort out genres etc. All I can say is what a bloody mess! I have 1 "unknown" genre which contains a single album/song, "Still Crazy After all these years/%0 Ways to Leave Your Lover" - listed as David bowie! If I serch David Bowie - that album is listed as his! also have genres titled 0 through 143 there are a whole load of genre titles with often album images that bear no relevance whatsoever to the actual songs in the genre playlist - example "Dub Techno" has a title cover of The Lion King! then in the synopsis of the genre it refers to Savage Garden's debut album! The title of the playlist is "Melon Collie And The Infinite Sadness (Deluxe Edition"! It has 131 songs in the genre - including "1979" by the Smashing Pumpkins, Big Big World by Emilia, Circle of life from the Lion King by Elton John - now, I know that genres sometime have blurred definitions but there i no way that those three songs mentioned are "Dub Techno" the genre "Dub Techno" appears to have listed everything in the "All Out 90s" directory. So - what have I done wrong and how do i fix the complete mess that emby has made of reading the music directory. My music is all listed in the following directory/file structure root folder (music) L__artist | L__album | L__ track 1 L__ track 2 L__ track 3 L__ track 4 etc is that the wrong way to list it? Is there a "how to" or best practices for best results for emby and music? Where does emby get its "genre" data from? thanks
  16. My Recently played list is a bit weird. It shows the track name + album at the top, and the track name + artist at the bottom Favorites songs do the same thing, but the two are inversed (Artist at the top, album at the bottom). Yet Frequently played seems to be fine. I've just ran a library scan, and refreshed the metadata. No changes there. Is it the normal behavior??

    Backdrops in music playlists

    Currently when i play music from my playlists and go to now playing no backdrop is shown. Before 4.6 update i had backdrops. I have re scanned library and made sure i was using a self populated playlist and not a smart playlist (Just in case there is a compatibility bug) . I have checked on PC and on android NVIDIA Shield, both no backdrop. I Have made sure that the artist playing had a backdrop. Hope this is a quick fix and thanks for all the hard work.
  18. The newest AndroidTV app will not play discs 2, 3, 4 from music albums. Home -> Music library -> Albums -> AnyMusicAlbumDisc2 -> Play Nothing happens.
  19. The application is very good but some adjustments are missing. For example, when you exit the app via the back button, it ends the music playback. If you want to leave the app using the back button, because it comes back on all the screens you have entered, as if it were a browser and not a player.
  20. Hello, I have my Emby Server on Debian mini pc. When I connect my smartphone trough bluetooth and play music app randomly stops and I have to exit it and open again to make it work. Then after few minutes stops again. It's horrible experience. Don't have that problem on other android apps when listen trough bluetooth. When i listen with browser from my smartphone it works OK. I attach log on different topic: emby.log regards, Przemek
  21. Hi there, I noticed on my two different Android TV devices that Emby (latest public version) crashes while playing any song and going back to Emby's home screen. Let me know in case you need any specific data/proof how to deliver. K
  22. when playing music from my PC, it stops when the Roku Screensaver activates. Is this a bug, or is there a setting to tell it not to engage the screensaver as is the case with videos? Thanks B
  23. Hi to everyone, i use this fantastic piece of software at my home and around the world with the android app on my smartphone. Last days i'm trying to organize better my music library but i found a behaviour that i don't know if it is right. When in music album there is a track with a featuring (example Coldplay & Beyonce), although the tag artist album is right (coldplay in this case), i found in the list of album artist also Coldplay & Beyonce. Is it right? I solved what is a little problem for me, removing the featuring artist in the artist tag (adding in brackets in song title). I have also tried, as suggested on an older post, to remove artist, to rescan library and add again artist, but this beahaviour persist. Thanks in advance for your answers

    Tracks as search result set

    Love the new format of search results with discreet groups to albums, movies, artists. As a search result set Emby will return all tracks from all albums matching search terms. This means that if I search for "The Cappuccino Songs", Emby will return, as a result, all tracks from this album regardless their title does not match search terms. Of course the result set also includes the album. The tracks, however does not seem to be a correct part of a result set. So if I search for a actor/actress will Emby return all movies where he has been? Or else if I search for a tv series name, should Emby return the episodes as a result? This seems to be wrong. Is it a "concept"??
  25. Hi, I use one single source containing both Music and Videos files, organized by Music Styles and then Artists. I configured two libraries : One for music, the other for the videos. I want to browse by Folders, as my hard disk is well organized. If I ask Emby to scan one of them, it scans them both at once. After the scan, I can only see content in the Music library and nothing in the Videos library. I already tried with two different sources, one for music and one for videos, and it works, but I need Emby to scan one single source and produce two different libraries with different media. I also tried using a Mixed Content Source, but no result at all. Is it a bug in Emby ? How can I view videos in the same source ? Thanks,
