  1. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. I thought for sure this question would've been asked countless times before, but I came up empty-handed after a handful of searches and about 20 minutes of forum browsing incl. the FAQ... I figured it would be easiest to just ask. For the Windows server, is it possible to specify a directory location to which the Media Browser 3 server application should be installed? I've been a long-time user (and I love it so much, I always look forward to the next big update from you guys) through thick and thin. And, it may have changed since I actually did my last install, which I believe was sometime in the middle of 2014... But the last time I installed, I did not see an option to specify where to install to. From what I can tell, it installs to %appdata%\MediaBrowser-server\ by default (which is of course in the user's profile folder) - I am hopeful that this can be changed, as I'm actually on a server machine and would love to organize my installations in a more meaningful way. Thanks!

    Excessive background images

    Emby Server may be in trouble, because I've determined that it only collects six background images, but it does not obey and save much more than that. You can correct that, please.
  6. Hi Guys, I have a NVIDIA Shield TV, and since the 02.02.2016, with any version of the Emby for Android TV App, i cant watch content without to pay 5$! I have an active Emby Premiere Key and I set it in the settings. It works in the mobile app, it works in the browser, it works with the windows app, but it doesnt work with the goddamn TV App. I buyed it yesterday AGAIN for 5$, because i tried 3 hours to fixx these problems (installed older server version, installed older version of the APP, looked at the SSL Certificate, looked at the Log...) and nothing worked, so i buyed it again. Is there a solution to this problem or does anyone encountered this problem too? Thank you for your answer Greetings

    Got Myself into Trouble

    Hello All, The hard disk in my server went bad on me, and I've just discovered that the backup plugin hasn't run in over 2 months. I was able to retrieve all the data from the bad disk, so I have all the files and I've tried rebuilding Emby server using the instructions here: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/10427-how-to-migrate-emby-server/ I found the source files in the Roaming folder (Emby-Server), but some of the paths don't seem to match the guide exactly. I also used SQL to move the users over, but the users don't show. Also, I can see the playlists in the folder, but they do not appear inside Emby. Is there any hope, or should I just start from scratch? The main things I care about are the playlists and the watch history. Thanks in advance. Jason

    Audiobook resuming issue

    I've been trying to get audiobook resuming to work, with today's update I actually see the resume button and I can skip forward via the progress bar. The thing is regardless of which button I hit, play or resume the book starts at the beginning. When I stop the book it fades out and the progress bar shows up on the book, and gives me the resume button. but when I press it it jumps back to the start. On the android app it asks if I want to resume at the correct spot, but then jumps back to the start anyway. embyLog.txt

    QNAP TS-251+ Emby stops constantly

    Hi all. I'm very new to emby. Been running plex for a long time but on first impressions Emby looks amazing. My problem is that it constantly stops responding. It has run a full scan on movies and TV shows and generated the front end but if I attempt to identify anything that is showing the wrong movie or show it just crashes and I have to kill the app and restart it. It's unusable in its current state. It's a little random too in that sometimes I can edit a couple of items before it crashes. I can't be sure but I think it's crashed a couple of times without me doing anything. I can barely get 10 minutes out of it. Even just renaming a file through file manager on the qnap has caused it to crash. I have Emby v3.1.2.0 and qmono If there are log files that might help identify the issue please can you tell me where they are? I'm gutted because it looks amazing. Any help would be massively appreciated.
  10. Hi, I wonder if there is a way to fix the address of this field. I use fixed ip on the internet carrier and I do not understand why Emby Server changes at all times, forcing the new url to inform the users at all times.

    Question about Windows sleep

    It seems that Emby Server prevents my Win10 HTPC from sleeping. If I manually put the computer to sleep, it will wake up a second or two later. I've quit or disabled various applications that were possible causes. As far as I can tell, it's specifically Emby Server. Is this a known behavior? Is there a server setting I should trying changing so Emby can let the computer go into and remain in sleep mode? Thanks
  12. I have Emby downloaded on my Windows 10 PC. My PC is then accessed by my Roku streaming unit connected to my TV. All has worked really well until yesterday when I attempted to start the server on my PC, but it just won't start up. Any thoughts? Location of server is: C:\Users\Noel\AppData\Roaming\Emby-Server\System\MediaBrowser.ServerApplication.exe
  13. vengo trabajando de mil maravillas con mi servidor version con licencia premium en todos mis dispositivos tablet, smartphone,pc, etc de repente sale un mensaje de error lo intento reinstalar y no he podido necesito ayuda URGENTE Adjunto imagen de error
  14. Hi, I would like to see some additional functionality added, either directly to the server, or via plugin. I use Media Center Master for scraping and downloading tv torrents and nzb, and would really like to see this added, as MCM is becoming a pain to use, due to it's often slow response. i am currently looking into purchasing a Synology NAS, and when I finally do, I want to retire my sever altogether. Unfortunately though, I won't be able to, as I will still need it just to run MCM. Also, additional filename conventions need to be added to the server. Currently TV shows are using the following format: \\SERVER\TV\T, T (YEAR)\T, T (Y).VCO-ACO.VSO-QA.ext And Movies: \\SERVER\MOVIES\T, T (Y).VCO-ACO.VSO-QA\T, T (Y).VCO-ACO.VSO-QA.ext The Movie path is so long because MCM does not allow seperate naming for the directorty and filename, otherwise I would use \\SERVER\MOVIES\T, T (Y)\T, T (Y).VCO-ACO.VSO-QA.ext Unless there has been an update that I have missed, where the VSO (Video Source) and QA (Quality/Resolution) has been added, as I use MCM for the renaming for this reason, it would be good to have this added.
  15. Right now I have Emby running on a NAS which was perfect for me at the beginning. It has plenty of storage and is always on. The downside is that it can only transcode 1 stream reliably, so if multiple people are watching remotely it can't keep up. I am looking for a box that will just be running the Emby server and has enough CPU to do multiple transcode streams (probably will use an SSD for transcode cache). I will still use the NAS for storage. I don't need any video card or anything along those lines (unless it is more cost effective to get one and utilize it for encoding, but I think a good processor is probably cheaper). I would like to keep the cost down as well. I have looked at some of the higher end NUC's, but the ones with better CPU's get pretty spendy because they are more targeted for gaming and have nice GPUs as well. Anyone have some good recommendations?
  16. Devs, I've noticed that in 3.1.2 the subtitles don't show up when I play in my browser (Firefox 50.1.0). The subtitle list shows the subtitles for each language, but when selected, nothing happens... My tests were made with Direct Play only, for now.
  17. Since upgrading to Emby Server 3.1 (and 3.1.1) the yesterday option is no longer there on the upcoming tv shows page. Is there a way to turn it back on or is it possible to add it back in a future release? It would also be nice to be able to configure how many days into the past you would like displayed on that page. Thank you,
  18. PLEASE, PLEASE! create some new feature that allow us to do some transformations to media files: WHEN: A ) during media scan B ) on it's own scheduled task WHAT: -- Examples of quick ffmpeg transformations: A-1) Removal of internal subtitles (be it leaving or not specific languages) A-2) Removal of static images A-3) Removal of Descriptions, Dispositions, Titles, etc... A-4) Insert/Update of Video Title metadata (based on Movie name or Episode title) -- Examples of slow ffmpeg transformations: B-1) Convert VIDEO to specific codec (ex: libx264, most compatible) B-2) Convert AUDIO to specific codec (ex: aac, most compatible) B-3) Limit Video bitrate (Ex: max 2500k) B-4) Limit Audio bitrate (Ex: max 192k CBR) If it would be possible that media would appear ONLY after all necessary treatments, it would be perfect. Of course... any of the parameters above (codecs, bitrates...) would be customizable by the admin
  19. Okay so today I decided I would try to start using Emby for my Music as well... Not sure if that is going to happen as I am currently trying to scan my Music folder for Music and nothing happens. I have it setup with the folder structure "Music\Artist Names\Album Names\Song Name.mp3" and all my files have been properly tagged with MP3Tag and work with multiple programs. So not sure if I am doing something wrong or if this is a bug with the latest update but I figured I would report this.
  20. In my library I have different libraries which were always showing at the start of Emby Theater and HTML. I keep all the collections in a separate library, all the movies without subtitles in a separate library, all the mini series in a separate library etc. etc. Now everything is thrown again into two libraries: movies and tv. Not very easy with a big library. I already found that i can switch on the show folders option. But this is more work and doesnt look as good as it used to. Do I need to go back to a previous version and stop updating? Because this seems to happen every few months. Marc
  21. I just noticed something that didn't used to happen. :-/ When I tick something as "Played" usually browsing inside Emby would reflect the update, as of not appearing in "Resume" list. In latest 3.1.0 version, I had to refresh the browser so Emby could really hide the Played from the "Resume" list. Can you reproduce it?
  22. I have ripped We're the Millers Blu-Ray to MKV, with extras and an Extended Cut. The extras and extended cut are not being detected as an alternate version or extras, they are being identified as individual movies. I have followed the instructions in the wiki, to no avail. The file structure is as follows: \SERVER\Movies\We're the Millers (2013).H264-DTS.BluRay-1080p\ We're the Millers (2013).H264-DTS.BluRay-1080p.mkv We're the Millers (2013) - Extended Cut.H264-DTS.BluRay-1080p.mkv extras\ deleted-scenes.mkv don't-suck-the-venom.mkv extreme-aniston.mkv gags&more-outtakes.mkv getting-out-of-a-sticky-situation.mkv i-am-pablo-chacon.mkv intro.mkv livin'-it-up-with-brad.mkv outtakes.mkv road-trippin'-with-the-millers.mkv rollin'-in-the-rv.mkv the-miller-makeovers.mkv when-paranoia-sets-in.mkv

    3rd party Notifications

    Luke, ever consider 3rd party notification utilities such as Prowl, Growl, Boxcar, NotifyMyAndroid, Pushover, etc etc. Would nice to be able to configure one of these to have the server notifications pushed to your device of choice.
  24. Emby is running on a Mac Mini. The content is stored in a Synology DS416j mounted over a gigabit network with 9000 byte jumbo frames enabled and working on both devices. The folder being watched by auto-organize is on the same NAS filesystem volume as the folders where it will be organized to. Auto-organize is set to move files rather than copy them. When new content is moved to the watched folder and auto-organized invokes, the content ingestion and file move/rename operation is immediate (as expected). For content that isn't automatically ingested because there's already an older version, the replacement content is copied and then the source file is deleted. Worse though, is that the first time I encountered this I had 200+ items being copied in parallel, and while the operation was running 170GB of content needed another nearly 170GB of filesystem space to perform the copy before items were being deleted. I move 100 1GB episodes of a show into the monitored folder. They're ingested and moved to the appropriate folders in less than a minute. Later, I get a set of those same episodes recompressed using a more efficient codec. I move 100 500MB episodes of the show into the monitored folder. They're all initially showing in blue in the Auto-Organize page. When I select the option to replace an episode, the item becomes yellow for several seconds as it's being copied over the network from the NAS to the Mac Mini and back again to the new location on the NAS, and then it turns green indicating it's been ingested. I now have two options: If I wait for each item to finish ingesting before I start the next item, I will need to sit at the computer for 30 minutes or more to ingest all these items one by one. If I go through the list as fast as I can, they all copying in parallel and the whole process takes even longer. I'm free to do other things, but now my NAS and network are saturated while the process runs.
  25. This specifically comes up when media isn't imported because it would replace something already there (and "Overwrite existing episodes" is unchecked), though it would be useful to see information about new imports. When an import would replace something already on the server, I run ffprobe against both pieces of content to see what the differences are. I'd like to see the information that's gathered about content when an item is imported next to the same information about content that's pending approval to overwrite it. The logic behind the decision over whether or not to overwrite could be something that later on might lead to new features around setting up rules for making decisions based on content information, but currently the person making the decision doesn't have enough information to make the decision manually. An info button at the end of the row in the Auto-Organize Activity Log page would do the trick. If content imported with no conflict, show just that, but for conflicting items show both sets of information.
