    Docker on OMV 3 - Library Access

    Hi I could do with some help on this as I'm confused. Installed Open Media Vault version 3 on my NAS, then installed the docker plugin and downloaded the Emby image and set up some shares to the media library. Emby starts fine, can scrap the media and the UI is super responsive however it won't play anything - tried via the web app / dlna and xbox one app - which is confusing as I've had all the working before and I believe I've set things up the same way and everything worked fine. Attached the docker and server logs. The server is using MergeFS with all libraries owned by root / user and set to 777, Docker is in Host mode with the /config folder sitting on a SSD again controlled by a OMV Share. I'm controlling the docker image via the OMV plugin UI Not sure what i'm missing. Hope some can shed some light on what I'm doing / have done wrong. Kentish DockerLog.txt EmbyServerLog.txt

    Help with my future build?

    Hey - apologies if this comes across as a noob post or whatever, I've recently been introduced to Emby and I am absolutely amazed with it, it's absolutely fantastic, so good that I've decided to host my own Emby server. I'm looking at spending anywhere from £300-500 (although this can be pushed up slightly if need be) for my build. I've considered these things currently: Mac Mini (16GB Ram, i5 Processor, 240GB SSD) HPe Proliant ML10 Gen9 HPE ProLiant Gen8 G1610T 819185-421 (4GB RAM) MicroServer Storage won't be a problem as I'll have a 8TB NAS to start with. My requirements so far are: Steam to 3 devices in the same household. (Will most likely be 3 at the max, but maybe potential for 4-5) Be able to stream remotely to 1-2 people (If I'm at my girlfriends house or travelling for work) Do either of the 3 I've posted look like they could do what I require? Or do any of you kind folk know a better build that will give me more bang for my buck? I'm not opposed to building the server myself out of parts, just trying to get some knowledge here. Many thanks

    Need help to install certificate

    Hi, I've tried to follow all the guides out there to add a certificate to my Emby server, unfortunately without success. Today I'm running my Emby server on Ubuntu 17.04. I own my own domain but I already use the main domain for another server that I has as a webserver. So I would like to have a sub-domain for my Emby, so I have created an address that looks like this: emby.domain.com I have managed to use free certificates on my web server via Certbot, but when I try to do the same way on my Emby server with my sub-domain I get some authentication error message. So I would really appreciate if someone would give me some really good instructions on how to install a certificate on my Emby-server. Have tried this already: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/44757-setting-up-ssl-for-emby-wip/
  4. As the title suggests, I have been unable to restore my server settings from the same computer (had to do a system wipe). I used to the backup plugin and kept it safe on a separate drive. But after I reinstalled Windows 10 and installed emby server v3.2.19.2 beta and installed the plugin again. Found the save states, I click on the only save state and it says "This restore operation will overwrite key system files and user information." so I click yes. Then nothing happens, it just shows the plugin page. I have tried the same process using Edge, Chrome and Firefox and they all do the same thing. I have attached a log of when I tried to restore. My specs are AMD A10-5700 APU 8gb Ram Geforce GTX 760 Windows 10 Pro

    Users have 2 Passwords?

    When I invite someone to my server and they link their emby connect account the password from their emby connect isn't the same as the one on the server. In fact, if they set no password on the server ANYONE can log into their account without any password and access all media on the server! Is this expected behavior? Seems completely insane to me! Why do I have to set passwords for users who already have passwords for their emby connect accounts? Is there a way to disable login without access to their emby connect account?
  7. hi guys i have added 2 of mt friends to my server as guessed but it wont let them connect to my server, any idea or help please

    Emby Server Shuts Down on it's Own

    I was wondering if anyone can help me with this issue. My Emby server will be working flawlessly and then for no apparent reason the server just shuts down. I have been experiencing this for the past 4 days. Any help would do. I am attaching some of my log files as well and see if that can clarify anything. I get alot of this too...

    Can't download Emby Linux Server

    Hi, I just wanted to ask if there is a problem with the download servers since i get a "503 Site is on maintenance" message and if there is a alternative download link well thank you for your time.
  11. Hi, I'm using MediaBrowser Server now since a few weeks and love it so far There's just on minor thing that is a bit annoying imho. I found the server integration of photos or image gallerys is nearly useless in it's current state. So, you may ask why?: It's because you can just get a closer/larger look to a single picture when you klick on it. And then you have to go back and open the next one. Pretty annoying when you have a dozen of pictures in an Album/Folder. Furthermore all the pictures are cut off somewhere in the middle when you open the large view. So my suggestion is to add left/right arrows to go through the picures when you opened one in large view and make this view "real" fullscrenn and don't cut the pictures. Or am I wrong and this functions already exists and I'm just to dump to find and activate it?
  12. Hi, First things first I am using emby server on a windows 10 machine and media is played through 2 Roku's via WiFi and PlayStation 4 & Xbox One via Ethernet. I use a discrete modem and router setup in my network. I store my media on 2 WD Cloud NAS that are connected via Ethernet & I store media on the server PC. I cannot play any media on any device through emby. The server is accessible from all of the above mentioned devices. When I try to play media from the Roku for example the loading screen comes up the progress bar moves about a quarter of the way and just freezes. I can play all of the media using other programs but in emby its just frozen. I have recently changed from a modem/router setup to 2 discrete devices, and so began the problem. I made sure after the switch that the 2 NAS devices retained their original IP addresses, as to make sure that the server looks at the same addresses. Both of the NAS in the network present this same problem. I don't get any error messages whilst using the server. I attached some of the past log events when the server failed to play media. Thank you very much for any help. emby log 1.txt emby log 2.txt emby log 3.txt

    Amazon Drive

    As Amazon has released a cheap unlimited storage, are you planning to create a sync plugin for emby server? Cheers, charmaex
  14. When browsing all movies, all "view" options in "Select View" work except "List." Attempting to view the movies in a list results first in a return to the "Suggestions" landing for the Movies folder, and then if attempted again quickly, in a webpage error ("This page is having a problem loading"). All other view types (Banner, Poster, Thumb, etc.) work perfectly.​
  15. Hi all, I've been using emby as a service for while now, and having gone through quite a few updates of the server, have always found it a bit long-winded to complete the update steps, thanks to the emby installer automatically starting the desktop app version of the server rather than the service. I've finally got round to writing a quick PowerShell script that automates it a bit more: stop the current service, download the server installer, run the installer, kill the emby app and finally start the service again. I've posted it here in case anyone's got a similar workflow to me for updating emby, and is only marginally lazier than I am: # Installer download path $downloadPath = "$env:USERPROFILE\Downloads" # Stop the emby service $service = 'Media Browser' if ((get-service -DisplayName $service).Status -eq "started") { Stop-Service -DisplayName $service } # Download installer $filename = 'setup.exe' $source = "http://mb3admin.com/downloads/release/server/$filename" $destination = $downloadPath + $fileName Invoke-WebRequest $source -OutFile $destination # Run installer & $destination | Out-Null # Kill the emby app that gets started. $emby = Get-Process -Name MediaBrowser.ServerApplication -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue while (!$emby) { # Check the app is running. Wait until it starts Sleep 5 $emby = Get-Process -Name MediaBrowser.ServerApplication -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue } Stop-Process $emby -Force Sleep 5 # Delete downloaded installer Remove-Item $destination #Restart the emby service Start-Service -DisplayName $service

    Streaming issues on one of my Rokus

    So I am having a strange issue with playback, I have 2 Roku streaming sticks and certain shows cannot play one 1 of them. After some searching and testing I noticed something interesting in the logs, on the Roku I use there is a remux log and everything plays perfectly FPS is at like 80+. Play the exact same file on the other stick and it transcodes instead which sits at like 11fps. I have a lousy atom in need of replacement housing the server, so I am very particular about what formats I download to prevent this exact issue. Is there something substantial that changed with the beta version of the Emby app on the Roku that makes it direct stream instead of transcode? If so is there something I can do to work around this, as getting the latest version on the one will be a problem as it's user account was not registered in USA and Roku sucks, sell the thing in my country all nice and stuffs and then limit the features, does not support my time zone and lolz of all lolz I cannot download the roku remote app on my phone. Thanks
  17. @@Luke, as posted in https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/28528-how-can-you-tell-if-quicksync-is-working/?p=275763 , this is an important feature, even more now that more and more users have HW that can be used to accelerate encoding and decoding. Can this please be done now? I've recently bought new hardware and I'm not sure if my hw acceleration settings are actually working. Possibly no, because of the CPU usage I see.
  18. EVERY time I startup KODI and try to play a movie, it tells me that one or more of the items failed to play, see log. I dont know what I am looking at in the log. I always have to go to my computer, and manually restart the server. There are even times that I have to complete shutdown the server and restart it. Sunday it happened twice, and I never even closed KODI. I just had it in idle for about an hour. I have attached both logs from that day. Thank you for you help.

  19. Morning peeps How can you force the server to download/refresh all metadata for ever entry in the library these days. I know there used to be a task, that is no more
  20. Long-ish question, *hopefully* easy answer: I recently upgraded from several external hard drives to a QNAP NAS. After testing the QNAP Emby app server performance, I preferred the old Windows-based server overall and thus the new QNAP is purely operating as the NAS, not the server (hence this forum). That being said... Similar to a question I had awhile back here, after changing my library media folders to the new NAS folders, I am again having difficulty saving metadata into local media folders (rather than in a generic "metadata" folder in the server files). When I add new content, the metadata is successfully being saved somewhere else (unknown location, log attached, tried to refresh "The Accountant" movie metadata). Not only do I instead want the metadata saved in the media folders, but wherever it's actually being saved is seemingly eating up scarce storage on my OS/server hard drive (small SSD). According to QNAP, I have enabled permissions for 'everyone' (see attached Capture #1) for my media content. Windows, however, is much more challenging as to confirming these network folder permissions. Unlike when using my external hard drives and simply assigning 'everyone' full R/W permissions through Windows Explorer and then applying these changes, Windows won't let me change these same settings for the QNAP folders, apparently giving full deference to QNAP's security settings and not allowing me to make any changes within Windows; I have navigated everywhere in the Windows folder permission settings and any changes I try simply won't stick, instead reverting to QNAP's overriding "special permissions" (see Capture #2). How do I get metadata to save directly in the media folders of the NAS? Thanks in advance for any input! server-63624863086.txt

    Using Raspberry Pi Kodi as Server

    Hi guys, i am new to this, i have 3 Raspberry Pi at home 1 as a server that always stays on, this has my external hard drives plugged in and connected to my network by a Ethernet Powerline. the other 2 raspberry pi's are in my bedroom and living room and link to the hard drives over the network again by Ethernet Powerlines. The problem with this set up is that there are all individual libraries. i did try UPNP a while back but the library was too big and was really slow at loading al the artwork etc. I am running openELEC on all devices although i think i will install libreELEC now as it has Emby built in. My question is, is there a way to instal the Emby Sever onto my Raspberry Pi so this can always stay on? (i can only find how to may a raspberry with kodi a client) i don't really want to install the server on my Mac or home PC as i wouldn't want this to be on all the time, or does it not need to be on? Can i install the server and link the hard drives through the network to it then turn off my PC? Just a little confused about how to work the set up. Any feedback would be awesome - would be nice to get it set up with all the feature Emby offers like watch statuses syncing across all my devices. Dark Kent
  22. There is wrong local network address in the Dashboard, the local address is the the same as the public ip-address. I've attached a screenshot. I would like to have an option to explicitly specify network interfaces to whom Emby should bind. As well as ability to completely disable binding to unnecessary interfaces.
  23. Hi, I have tried changing my Emby login password to restrict some certain users, but when changing the password through the Users/*username*/Password, it says 'Password Saved'. The issue is that my old password still works. Kiani Log.txt

    Server - Hamburger menu

    Seeing as Luke (I think it was Luke, don't quote me on that, maybe just my deranged imagination) said something about hamburger menus and discoverability, how about turning the items under Media into a horizontal list that's always there above whatever horizontal list is there already i.e. the Suggestions, Latest etc list. Also move the Admin tools under the Gear Icon. The Hamburger thing just disappears. Feel free to shoot his down, just a thought, haven't exactly spent hours considering pros and cons.
  25. I believe this started when Emby for Fire TV updated in early February. When direct streaming from the server, even when the video's bitrate is low (4000 kbps right now for example), the server is maxing out my network usage according to task manager (using close to 100 Mbps) and causing the video to stutter on the Fire TV. It'll play for a couple seconds, pause for a second, play a couple more seconds, etc.
