    server update breaks live tv icons

    HI, Just want to know if I am the only one who has tv icons manually adjusted for live tv (Channel 7, Win, Network 10 etc), but every server update breaks them and I have to manually edit the metadata images for them? This is a little time consuming (not really too bad, but a PITA), anybody notice similair behaviour. This happens across all machines (win 7 pc and win 7 htpc, all clients - android, moto x and tf700 tablet, with server 3.0.5675.1). Thanks
  2. Hi, Looking for some help Emby Server Version 3.0.5675.1 O/S WinServer 2012 R2 E Issue : playback stalls after a while (say 10 minutes) you get to watch 5-10 second clips, then a pause, then the next clip. Everything had been fine, until I shut the system down for a couple of weeks at the beginning of July, and it hasn't worked since Specifically, it stutters on Android and Web on windows PC, and the new Kodi addon just says 'opening stream', but never plays anything (previously it used to directly play the file). I suspect multiple problems At this point, I'm supposed to attach a server log file, but the one for today is already >10MB, so will need to cut and paste lines. Looking at it, the bulk of it is two lines repeated 2015-07-23 13:11:09.8799 Info - App: HttpClientManager POST: 2015-07-23 13:11:12.2548 Info - App: HttpClientManager POST: the two IP address are two Sonos Zone players (there are five in total, the other three never appear in the list). I'm not sure if this is a red herring (as far the suttering / transcoding issue goes) but I think it indicates something that needs fixing Less often, you get the following error 2015-07-23 11:13:29.7802 Error - UpnpContentDirectory: Error processing control request *** Error Report *** Version: 3.0.5675.1 Command line: C:\Users\NetAdmin\AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Server\system\MediaBrowser.ServerApplication.exe -service Operating system: Microsoft Windows NT 6.2.9200.0 Processor count: 8 64-Bit OS: True 64-Bit Process: False Program data path: C:\Users\NetAdmin\AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Server Application Path: C:\Users\NetAdmin\AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Server\system\MediaBrowser.ServerApplication.exe One or more errors occurred.

Not sure if it shows anything. To me it looks like it was transcoding away at 500 fps, then stopped with an error, but I could easily be misreading it TranscodeLog.txt ServerLog Ist Half.txt
  3. 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.

    Sort within collections

    Is there a way to sort videos within collections alphabetically in the server? I have some collections that have a mix of movies and tv series e.g. Star Trek. MB3 shows the contents separated into movies and TV shows (which is good) but the movies and the tv shows are then in a more or less random sorting. Is it possible to add the sort button that you have at the top level items inside collections as well?
  5. Hi, I logged on to my server last night for the first time in a few weeks, and can no longer access the dashboard, unless I go to app.emby.media. I see the following page. It might pay for me to note that, I'm hosting the dashboard-ui from \\SERVER\Emby\dashboard-ui

    Server 3.0.5675.1 search

    I'm using now Server 3.0.5675.1 I have to say that this version is loading my movie library (7000+) faster than others versions Good Job!! . Also thanks for the option to stop the automatic updates. But in the web client I found that the search on the top don't return any result and frezee the system until I select something else in the web client. The (X) at the end don't close the request. I also include the log for this issue. server-63572672497.txt
  7. All gone, zero actors, nothing.? TV actors are there. Edit: an advanced refresh of movies seems to have kicked something back into life, they're back. They seemed to vanish after adding 2 new films. The 2 new films had actors but all others vanished, then all actors for all films vanished..

    Music Mood Playlists

    I wanted to ask if I am missing anything or if there are any updates coming to address the issue I am having with my music folder structure. I have several artists in my library. It is rare you will see a ton of songs from one artist. So I created mood (playlists) folders. This works great for me, as I can just play the folder according to my mood. The challenge I am having is it creates havoc with the server naming convention. The server will grab the first artist from the folder and group the entire folder under the name of that artist album. Instead of redoing my entire library and manually maintaining playlists, is there anything I am missing or any updates that will help this in the future? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Emby server artwork

    I finally had enough today and I'm going to stop using Emby and switch to Plex full-time because Emby has become ludicrously buggy. When I go into my Emby server on my Windows 7 computer the message "An Error Has Occurred" has become the norm rather than something that happens on rare occasions. Emby refuses to populate information for some movies, musical artists or musical albums, cannot find artwork for items where the server itself located database information for the album or movies, gives error messages nearly every time I click browse artwork forcing me to download it manually from Google. I wasted 7 hours yesterday adding covers to albums where Emby found the Musicbrainz info itself but still wouldn't populate any information. I would try to update and either get the spinning circle forever or get an error message because Emby couldn't communicate with the server. This happened not once or twice but every single time and this has been the case for a while. I was manually adding album info and artwork for a while but after hours I ran out of patience and switched to just adding album covers. Maybe I'll try Emby again in a few months to see if it actually works like it's supposed to but for now I'm switching to Plex full-time because when I add music and movies I can just play play them without wasting hours trying to get everything to display properly for the Roku app.

    Fresh Install

    Recently upgraded system and started from scratch. I realize that I could have used the backup plugin to save my config, but I wanted to start from scratch. Win7x64 Server Stable 3.0.5641.4 Server Beta 3.0.5666.4 I am able to install the server, but once the wizard runs it gets stuck at language selection. I am not able to pull down the Language menu and only see the spinning circle. Tried both stable and beta releases with same results.
  11. When viewing movies on the server or android app I have my folder views working but when i click on collections from within a folder I.E. box sets it shows me collections for all box sets in my library. How can I set it to display collections for only the current folder.
  12. So i did a clean format/reinstall of my laptop. so put Emby on with a fresh install... but then copied over everything from the backed-up \Emby-Server\data folders, including all the images, etc... But i deleted the library.db & refreshinfo.db so the library would rebuild... Does the server use the images that are already downloaded, or does it just download everything a fresh and overwrite whatever's already there?
  13. Hello, I am in the process of moving from Plex to MediaBrowser, and have noticed that the server load when transcoding is rather extreme. Server: MediaBrowser Server Version 3.0.5518.3 Hardware: Mac Mini (2011) with 2.7GHz Intel Core i7 with 8GB RAM running OSX 10.9.5 Client: Nexus 7 (Android 5.0.2) running MediaBrowser version 2.2.03 Network: Same subnet, Nexus 2 meters away from high speed access point with 1GE link to MacMini Symptom: ffmpeg using 372% CPU, Mac Mini getting warm, fan going full speed. The file being transcoded is as follows. Have not changed any default transcode settings. Server set to "Auto". Codec: H264 Profile: High Level: 41 Resolution:1920x1080 Aspect ratio:16:9 Anamorphic: No Interlaced: No Framerate: 23.97602 Bitrate: 10732 kbps Bit depth: 8 bit Pixel format: yuv420p Ref frames: 4 CABAC: Yes Pictures of system load: While transcoding, extreme load: After transcoding, normal load: As you can see it's a huge difference. I have run Plex Media Server for a few years, and it manages to transcode multiple sessions to multiple different clients without getting the same extreme load. Is this due to a horrible misconfiguration on my end, or a bug in how MediaBrowserServer on OSX uses ffmpeg? Attached is what I presume to be the correct transcode log. Please advise - this is my first experience with Media Server, and first day of using it, and as I didn't find this referenced anywhere, I figured this would probably be the place to ask. Thanks much in advance! transcode.log
  14. I have WMS App from Roku and it does not connect/ It does show my media server IP and Port and I can open media server from my browser but Roku says "Unable To Connect" Please make sure your server is running before attempting to add it to the server lsit. Well MBS is running. Any suggestions? BG

    Server will not scan

    I'm using the current stable version of the server. My box crashed so I just did a reinstall of windows and emby. After the install I installed the mb Backup plugin and restored my settings from a backup. Everything came across but the scheduled task page has no information on it. The library tab shows my folders but will not scan when I try to do a manual scan. (nothing happens when I click the scan button. Uninstalled everything twice and retried to no avail. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help
  16. It;s probably something my end that needs tweaking, as I have not seen anyone else report this, so I am hoping someone can help. Emby server is installed on my laptop, which is connected via wifi to my server. In the web client, Emby will not show all the covers. Refreshing the browser does not help. I am using chrome, but have tried it in IE11, which doesn't want to show any covers https://www.dropbox.com/s/q22gws762x43u66/Screenshot%202015-06-26%2019.17.55.png?dl=0 You'll notice in the next image, that it successfully shows one other image https://www.dropbox.com/s/vi7tcqou3c1ls8f/Screenshot%202015-06-26%2019.24.00.png?dl=0
  17. Hi At the moment, we have the progress bars for the scanning of the libraries. Could we have an additional little log window, that tells us what it's doing in a simple form? So it could look like this: I'd love to know what it's actually doing...

    Server Unreachable(Kodi)

  19. Emby's device management is a little lacking in my opinion and could benefit from a few additional options that would make it more useful: Under the devices panel the ability to actually specify what is a shared device or not would be awesome. Currently you cannot specify which devices are considered shared or not (DLNA is shared others are not..) This means that if you had a dedicated HTPC running Emby Theater (or any client really) you couldn't make it a shared device. Under the user options there are currently two options "Control other users" and "control shared devices" I would like to see a third option added "Control only devices from local network": This option would only allow the user to control devices that are in the same network as they are. Currently the server knows when a device is in the same network as it as it uses this for the "local pin" function. So anything that qualifies for the local pin would be considered to be in the same network. On the flip side any remote devices would be considered to be in the same network if they had the same IP since requests coming from over the internet would all appear to come from that network's router. Its not really often that you need to control a device that you aren't on the same network. To make control of devices in my local network more straight forward both my girlfriend and I have the "control other users" and "Control shared devices" enabled however this means that we both can always see all the devices of our friends who are connected (which often includes an array of browsers all named identically) we keep both options on though since its annoying to not be able to change the video from one device or another because the other one is already controlling it. As an example: my girlfriend starts queues a bunch of TV shows [play all from here] then walks away turning the TV off since she changed her mind then I show up and want to watch something else but there is currently content playing already playing so I either would need to wait for it to finish hit stop on the remote over and over until I got to the end of the playlist that she had queued up to free the device up for my account to control.

    library scan freezing

    Since updating to server version 3.0.5582.0, I've noticed that the first library scan after starting the server is fine, but after that the library scan gets stuck at 0% until you shut down the server. Hitting stop causes it to freeze with a "stopping" message. Anyone else having this problem? log

    Cache file cleanup failed

    Hi there all, I have my emby server set up on my local server but have the ImagesbyName and Emby folders set up on networked drives. The cache is local. I keep getting the message "Cache file cleanup failed" The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error Emby Server Version 3.0.5621.4 is running on a Windows7 64 bit machine. Nothing special but this has just started happening. The C:\Users\Tanamur\AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Server\cache tells me there is a problem. Any suggestions or should I just delete the cache folder and rbuild? Thanks in advance
  23. Hi, Could the Web Client source path please be added to the Paths list on the main dashboard?
  24. Hi, I would like to request that the log path be made customisable in the server dashboard.

    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
