    Issues installing emby-server due to missing

    In the process of installing Emby on Ubuntu Server 14.10, following the process outlined here. I've been able to get the repo setup, although I needed to manually add the proper keys, get the repo cache updated, and install the listed dependencies, but when I go to install the actual emby-server application, it gives me the following: david@plexserver:~$ sudo apt-get install emby-server Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: emby-server : Depends: mono-devel (>= 1.0) but it is not going to be installed Depends: lsb-base (>= 4.1+Debian11ubuntu7) but 4.1+Debian11ubuntu6 is to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages. I did some investigating, and tried to manually install both mono-devel and lsb-base. Those outputs are below: david@plexserver:~$ sudo apt-get install lsb-base Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done lsb-base is already the newest version. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. david@plexserver:~$ sudo apt-get install lsb-base Reading package lists...

Not sure what exactly could be causing this, but I do have mono previously installed, as I'm using Sonarr for grabbing TV Shows. Has anybody run into something similar? EDIT: Sorry about the weird title. Wasn't paying attention.
  3. First of all, let me say that I searched the forum and haven't found anything that covers this topic. I have a few questions regarding the setup of Emby together with Kodi when they are running on the same machine, to be precise, a headless Ubuntu-based HTPC. I scanned my video files to Emby, they show up just fine on the server side. Emby fetches all the artwork properly, including extrafanart and extrathumbs. I use the Kodi addon (1.1.53) and want to get direct playback running as smooth as possible. As said, Kodi runs on the same device with the same user and same filesystem access. But now a few questions arise: 1. Do I need the option to use local paths instead of Emby redirection enabled? When I do not enable that option, Kodi does not see the extrathumbs Emby provides because the skin needs the actual filepath to see them. 2. Will a path substitution solve the issue mentioned above? My video files are stored under /media/Media, will a substitution /media/Media -> /media/Media make a difference? 3. And, next big issue: I know that Kodi handles music different from the video files. How will path substitution and direct playback work here? How does the add-on provide the music cdart to Kodi? Will it set the item.art(discart) property? Again, the problem is that the skin I use right now needs the actual filename path for cdart, extrafanart and extrathumb. It would not be a big problem to change the skin a little, but right now I just don't now how because I don't know what artwork is provided to the music.db directly and which not.
  4. I need help with my Ubuntu Emby server. I installed it and it loads up the dashboard. I have set up the paths to my media but they don't show up when I want to view the media. Does anyone know what might be the problem? I am using Ubuntu 14.03 LTS. Optiplex 755 with 4 GB of RAM. 2.4 Ghz C2Quad CPU.
  5. Hi guys, I don't know where to open Troubletickets for Emby, so I will try it in this forum. My Emby installation is running on Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS 64-Bit. For testing purposes I installed the Trailers Plugin, which I wanted to remove later on. I clicked the Uninstall button and the server stated to restart Emby. When I issued "sudo service mediabrowser restart" on the server console and logged back in to the web interface, the Trailers Plugin was still there. How can I remove the Trailers plugin from my installation? Am I missing something? Regards, Bondfreak

    Library scanning ubuntu

    Hi, I am currently having an issue with Ubuntu 14.04 library scanning, I am on the third attempt now and it still seems to be getting stuck, I have tailed /var/lib/emby-server/logs/ I can see the get requests and some thumbs being created but after a while it just stops for no real reason, any help would be greatly appreciated, don't want to go back to plex!!!
  8. Hi. I have some problems and questions with Emby on my N54l. At first - I'm just learning ubuntu and Emby and I may don't know some simple things and don't know which logs should I add here. Currently I'm using Emby as mediaserver, Kodi 15 on my ODROID C1 ubuntu as main player and emby web interface on my workstation. I can't install new Emby addon for Kodi 15. When I open Beta repo - It doesn't show any addons for my Kodi. Before start I uninstalled old plugin. skin and old repo from Kodi. I think the problem is my Kodi 15 (development build) but I stuck with it as only Kody with odroid support. Emby settings told me what it wouldn't use transcoding if it doesn't needed. I can easylly play any video (even 1080p) directly with samba sharing (through gigabit network and wi-fi) on my workstation and my odroid. With all things running on my server it's hardly uses 2-4% of server CPU. But when I try to use Emby web on workstation - it starts to transcode video and eats 100% CPU and can play only 720p with 1MB/s. It is OK when I play video through internet from my parents house and may be good enough for N54l CPU, but for local gigabit network this quality is too low. If I use any better quality video freezes. I thought what if I use max resolution and bitrate for current video it should play it directly without transcoding, but I was wrong. It is just stops playing. I tried Plex instead of Emby and it works well, but I want to run Emby here. If I try to play video (even 480p) with old kodi plugin it doesn't play anything at all, just Freezes my odroid (I know there was emby plugin update for ARM, but look at issue#1 here). I can't understand why Emby thinks it should use transcoding. What settings I should change for letting me play 1080p directly? I know I can use network path to media folders instead of local paths and it should help me somehow but here is issue number 3. I shared my server media folders with samba and can access their content wih Win7 or ubuntu and Kodi on odroid. But when I try to set this network paths (like "\\\media\video\tvshow" or "\\Zserver\media\video\tvshow") for my Emby media library - Emby web just says path doesn't exist and still uses old local path ("root\Zdata\media\video\tvshow"). If I try to specify path through web interface - it shows nothing: no my server, no my workstation shared folders, just blank space. I saw somewhere what network path to media folders could solve my issue #2 so I'd like to know what am I have missed here. Sometimes when idle Emby stops responding through web and "//" says page doesn't exist. Even "service mediabrowser restart" can't help. Only solution for me is restart whole server. I think I should add log file here, but don't know which one. Also sometimes Emby web stops responding to mouse klicks in firefox. I have Adblock and NoScript installed but they both are off for If I use chrome instead all looks fine, but chrome is not my preferred browser. Is there any solution for this? hardware specs: If I need provide any logs - just ask.

  10. I am having an issue with Scheduled Tasks in Ubuntu. The version of Emby I am using is 3.0.5607.2 and Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.13.0-53-generic x86_64) Whenever I try to add a "trigger" for Scheduled tasks, I get a messages stating "Task not found" and none of my scheduled tasks run according to the schedules that are currently there. For example, "Check for application updates" has default values of "Every 24 Hours" and "On application startup". I have tried to modify these values and add new triggers but they result in either "Task not found" or no message at all but they do not get added. I have done a complete re-install of Emby from the new PPA, wiped my /var/lib/emby/ folder completely and started from scratch but still experiencing the same issues. I have also tried adding the Trakt addon but cannot setup any triggers as well. The values that are there (for example "Check for application updates" and "Every 24 Hours") do not run according the schedule. These tasks do run on application startup however. Any suggestions about how to correct this problem? http://pastebin.com/eByVG8wE
  11. If you are running an Ubuntu or Debian server and mono version 3.10 or older or 4.0 or newer and are experiencing random crashing of Emby with no errors in your logs, you might be experiencing an issue related to a bug in the kernel. Finally one of the Sonarr devs popped in and helped us figure out a possible solution to the problem. (that quote is from http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/19955-emby-crashing-ubuntu-server/page-5&do=findComment&comment=207271) Once users started upgrading their kernels to as new as 4.0, they reported that the stability of Emby has greatly improved. Here are some instructions on how to upgrade your kernel without having to do a distro upgrade: http://askubuntu.com/questions/119080/how-to-update-kernel-to-the-latest-mainline-version-without-any-distro-upgrade Also, a few users reported that they were still experiencing crashed even though they weren't running Emby in a VM. Many of them also reported that a kernel upgrade actually fixed their problem. If you are still having issues with Emby crashing after a kernel upgrade and you don't know why, please let us know.
  12. So, I have previously used XBMC for a year and have been using Plex for a few months. This week I installed Emby. Server is running on Ubuntu 15.04 64 bit. Android app connects and can browse media and send to Chromecast without difficulty. Unfortunately search facility in android app doesn't seem to work at all. I get no response, no results, no progress bar or error notice whether I click on enter or on the magnifier icon. Clearly something is happening though because sometimes a previous search from several occasions ago will show up briefly when i try to do a new search and artists I have searched for get added to the live mix list. Search via web browser is almost instantaneous with results. What gives?
  13. Hi guys, I'd really like to upgrade my rather old Kodi HTPC setup by replacing the backend with Mediabrowser. I like the possibility to watch on multiple devices in my home network without keeping media databases in sync. So what I did was installing Mediabrowser on my Ubuntu server (HP N36L) for testing before buying a faster server (for transcoding). I am running into the problem that I cannot playback any content without transcoding being in place. The library is set up using linux local paths ( /media/Storage/movies ). I configured path substitution so that the clients can access the files directly. This is the point where I am not sure why transcoding is still in place. I tried the following configurations for substitution None of these worked for the web client on my Macbook (using Google Chrome), since I still see the bandwidth settings in the top right corner. All the options also didn't work for a Windows 7 client using Firefox. I did not test the following clients yet. Kodi, iPhone, iPad. My server can provide access to the media files via NFS, AFP or SMB. Can anyone help me troubleshoot the setup so I can playback with direct file access? Is it even possible that devices with different OS can playback with direct file access at the same time? Regards, Bondfreak
  14. I'm on version 3.0.5557.20000 and am having a problem streaming movies through EMBY connect. When i try to stream a movie i get an error: As soon as that error pops up this is outputted to the log file: 2015-04-04 13:15:44.9904 Error - NotFoundHttpHandler: Request not found: /Items/9183b1456a4fd9dc78eb45b1f1049a4f/PlaybackInfo?UserId=e4fafe12771947c5e7923375b97685f4&StartTimeTicks=0 I'm able to stream from within the LAN and from WAN using my WAN IP, It just doesn't seem to work through EMBY connect. Any ideas? server-63563702400.txt

    Photo casting?

    I'm a n00b at Media Browser, so maybe I'm just missing a setting or something, but is it possible to send photos from the (Ubuntu) server, via the Android app, to a Chromecast? Same as I can do with video files. If it can cast photos them I'm sold and will become a life member as I'm fed up with Plex not finding some of my media. Thanks!

    Subtitle backdrops?

    Hey all. I looked around but couldn't really find anything related to this specifically: When I play a file containing Subtitles in the web browser player, they always show with a black backdrop. Is there any way to remove this backdrop? I have had multiple people confirm that it happens when viewing through their browsers. If that's not supposed to happen, why might it happen and has anyone been able to fix this? The PC running the MediaBrowserServer is an Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS system. For reference, here's a sample MediaInfo for a file which exhibits this behavior when played (quality setting: Direct) through the browser: General Format : Matroska Format version : Version 2 File size : 322 MiB Duration : 23mn 39s Overall bit rate : 1 899 Kbps Attachements : AppleGaramond.ttf / AppleGaramond-Light.ttf / arial.ttf / BISONPRR.TTF / CronosPro-Capt.otf / ElicitSSK-Bold.ttf / HATTEN.TTF / PIXEARG.TTF / TOARUmincho.ttf Video ID : 1 Format : AVC Format/Info : Advanced Video Codec Format profile : High@L4.1 Format settings, CABAC : Yes Format settings, ReFrames : 9 frames Codec ID : V_MPEG4/ISO/AVC Duration : 23mn 39s Width : 1 280 pixels Height : 720 pixels Display aspect ratio : 16:9 Frame rate mode : Constant Frame rate : 23.976 fps Color space : YUV Chroma subsampling : 4:2:0 Bit depth : 8 bits Scan type : Progressive Title : H.264 720p HDTV Writing library : x264 core 114 r1924+495 ccd7045 Encoding settings : cabac=1 / ref=9 / deblock=1:1:1 / analyse=0x3:0x133 / me=umh / subme=10 / psy=1 / fade_compensate=0.80 / psy_rd=0.40:0.00 / mixed_ref=1 / me_range=24 / chroma_me=1 / trellis=2 / 8x8dct=1 / cqm=0 / deadzone=21,11 / fast_pskip=0 / chroma_qp_offset=-2 / threads=6 / sliced_threads=0 / nr=0 / decimate=1 / interlaced=0 / constrained_intra=0 / fgo=5 / bframes=10 / b_pyramid=2 / b_adapt=2 / b_bias=0 / direct=3 / weightb=1 / open_gop=0 / weightp=2 / keyint=250 / keyint_min=23 / scenecut=40 / intra_refresh=0 / rc_lookahead=60 / rc=crf / mbtree=1 / crf=18.0 / qcomp=0.60 / qpmin=0 / qpmax=69 / qpstep=4 / ip_ratio=1.40 / aq=1:0.60 Language : Japanese Default : No Forced : No Audio ID : 2 Format : AAC Format/Info : Advanced Audio Codec Format profile : LC Codec ID : A_AAC Duration : 23mn 39s Channel(s) : 2 channels Channel positions : Front: L R Sampling rate : 48.0 KHz Compression mode : Lossy Title : AAC 2.0 Language : Japanese Default : No Forced : No Text ID : 3 Format : ASS Codec ID : S_TEXT/ASS Codec ID/Info : Advanced Sub Station Alpha Compression mode : Lossless Title : Styled Subtitles Language : English Default : Yes Forced : No Menu 00:00:00.000 : en:Prologue 00:01:03.564 : en:Part A 00:10:32.966 : en:Opening 00:12:02.889 : en:Part B 00:22:09.870 : en:Ending Any help would be appreciated.

    Ubuntu & HTTPS

    Hi all, I've been trying to figure out why HTTPS doesn't work on my ubuntu server for the last few days and no luck unfortunately. Does anyone know (devs would be super useful) if this is supported on Linux (Ubuntu) at all? On my windows PC it works fine however on my Ubuntu server (14.04 LTS) and VM (Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS) the connection is dropped almost instantly (I don't even see the page). EDIT: I have firewall turned off Telnet doesn't even seem to work either, everything you see in the terminal. Please see the below screenshots. Thank you! Chrome Firefox Telnet Any help would be greatly appreciated! Otherwise I'm really enjoying MediaBrowser and will likely use it over Plex if this feature works for me! Cheers, Glaive

    Newbee: File Format Questions

    Hello, new to the community. Just installed MB3 on Ubuntu-based NAS trying to replace PLEX. Have trouble with a lot of older video files. Problems are: They play under Firefox, but the progress bar is not in action... always full and not dragable. They do not play on Android... tried external player and saw a stream.ts to be downloaded. Do I miss any sort of video decoder on Ubuntu? I installed ubuntu-restricted-extras and all these videos play correctly in Totem... Thanks for any advise.
  19. Hello everybody, I thought it would be nice to provide a ready 'import-n-play' image that would be added to the server downloads for those who loves Linux but still want to stay on their Windows Desktop, so I've installed Media Browser for Ubuntu on Oracle VM open source VirtualBox, most of customization are setup already but you are still able to amend yours to meet your personal needs, like subtitle desired language to download, enable/disable cinema mood and setup local/internet trailers: The setup is as follows: Ubuntu Login: Username: master Password: mediabrowser Network settings: IP address: Subnet: Gateway: DNS:, HDD capacity is: 1.00 TB dynamically allocated storage, so make sure to place the VDI file in a partition with enough space for automatic expansion. You can amend your settings by modifying the file: /etc/network/interfaces Folders Hierarchy: -------- home ----- master ----- mediabrowser_files (that contains all metadata, cache, transcoding, and custom intros files arranged in folders by a descriptive name) ---- cache ---- custom_intros ---- downloads_monitor ---- metadata ---- studio_images ---- transcoding_temp ----- mediabrowser_data (that contains the actual media files, movies, TV Shows, etc arranged in folders by a descriptive name) ---- home.videos ---- kids.movies ---- movies ---- music ---- music.videos ---- photos ---- tv.shows point your browser to: and enjoy your streaming.
