  1. In addition to (but not contingent on) a related feature request ( https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/43845-emby-server-emby-theater-support-nfo-files-and-automatic-metadata-lookup-for-extras/ ), I recommend Emby Theater display the full Title, Duration and any other Metadata below the currently selected Extra using something along the lines of the UX pattern called "Thumbnail grid expanding preview". See the following for examples: https://tympanus.net/codrops/2013/03/19/thumbnail-grid-with-expanding-preview/ https://tympanus.net/Tutorials/ThumbnailGridExpandingPreview/ http://www.oriongunning.com/thumbnail-grid-expanding-preview/ http://www.oriongunning.com/demo/gridder/ While the current layout is clean and concise, it is not terribly helpful (in my opinion) in knowing what one is considering watching. As far as I can tell the only ways to get more details are to either start playing the item, or Ctrl-D to view Edit Info (neither of which is ideal when you're just browsing). I think that the "Thumbnail grid expanding preview" UX pattern is a decent route to go and in keeping with the general aesthetic of ET. Additionally, once the underlying code is built for this way of displaying data, there are potentially other uses for this UX pattern. One I can think of at the moment (which can be spun off to it's own feature request at some later point) would be to have items in "More Like This" respond this way, so that you get a mini-detailed view of some of the item metadata and then the option to click through to that item's page to actually play the item if desired. This would enable one to more quickly ascertain (without fully going to the item page) if they want to further explore that "More Like This" item or not. Regardless of additional uses (such as for "More Like This" items), I think that some sort of improvement is definitely needed for displaying the details of Extras, and the "Thumbnail grid expanding preview" UX pattern seems like a decent option to me.

  2. In addtion to things like Unwatched, Collections, Genres, Years, etc. I would find it nifty if there was a grouping for Length/Duration (Length might make the most sense, but I'm open to other words), perhaps by 15 minute increments? And adding in this sort of thing other places (eg, search filters, etc., whenever those types of things get implemented) would be useful. The use case for this is that I often only have a certain amount of time to watch something, and so I'll search (in my old, custom media setup) via time groupings for what I could watch within the time I have available. So I'm interested in any ways to achieve that easily within Emby Theater. Thanks for considering my request!

  3. For the life of me, I can't figure out a way to do a simple search for a title on this W10 store app. Either it is inexplicably missing, or buried so someone as dumb as myself can't find it. I'm I the only one to be baffled by how I can perform a search?

    UI issue in auto organize pop-up

    See screenshots below. Just a little tweak necessary after the latest Android Mobile app. Can't confirm whether this looks the same in WebUI right now. Someone else will, or I'll reply/edit after my next failed file appears. Padding/margin seems to be based taking a backseat to the width determined by the length of the filename string.
  5. Anybody out there with experience with Android Widgets? I've done some work on widgets before, and if my schedule lightens up, I'd love to help develop widgets for Emby Android Mobile. Capabilities would include (but not be limited to) list of recent episodes in favorited series (rss style) and list of favorite movies (also rss style). Capabilities for admins would include server stats: storage quotas, cpu and memory usage, temperatures could be integrated with a future hwmonitor plugin, number of current users, number of current streams. All these items should be clickable directly to their location inside the app, but looking for feedback from any other devs with Android widget experience.
  6. Hello. New forum member and new Emby user, here. I recently switched over to Emby from Plex for various reasons, one of them being that I was looking for a Windows Media Center replacement for DVR functionality. As such, my expectations/impressions are based on my previous experience with MCE, so factor that in to the opinions below. I realize Live/Recorded TV is a relatively new feature in Emby and still being polished, so I thought I'd add my 2 cents on some things I noticed. I did not know exactly where to put this feedback in the forums. I saw other Live/Recorded TV posts here so I figured this would work. Also, all of these feedback items are based on using the web interface via Chrome. No apps or anything like that (mostly only use the apps for playback, but will eventually set up recordings that way, too). I am using Server Version 3.0.5971.0 1) When setting up recording I manually specified the "Default Recording Path" because I was using the server interface remotely. I typed in the name of a non-existent directory hoping it would create the directory for me, but it didn't. In fact, recording did not work at all, and there was no indication of failure within the UI. Might be worth putting some kind of "directory must already exist" note there (probably assumed by most, but there's always a bigger "fool" to break the "fool-proof system"). 2) For the series recordings, I did not interpret the "Record at Any Time" flag correctly. I had unchecked all the Sunday-Saturday checkboxes and then in the "Repeating Options" section clicked the "Record at Any Time". I had figured the "any time" wording meant it would over-ride the days, but it did not seem to because no scheduled recordings showed up in the recordings list. Then again, I didn't have the recording folder set up correctly at the time (see #1), so that would definitely have prevented recording. 3) Also for series recordings -- my wife likes to have the last 10 recordings of Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert available to watch, but we don't want to keep them all. If unwatched recordings need to be deleted automatically to limit the recordings to 10, that's fine. Windows Media Center has this capability for series recordings. It would be a nice feature to have as part of the series settings. 4) In my area there are multiple over-the-air PBS stations nearby that often carry the same content. I set up a series recording for "Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood" and clicked the "Record on all channels" checkbox and noticed that the "Recordings" section showed scheduled recordings for the same episode on the 2 different PBS stations. I don't really need 2 recordings of the same episode, but maybe recording of the second episode would have been skipped after the first was recorded? Or maybe that kind of functionality only works for the "Record only new episodes" feature. 5) In the web interface I found that I often had to refresh the page to view changes I had made. For instance, when scheduling a recording, after saving it, I would go to the "Recordings" tab and not see the newly scheduled recordings. Refreshing the page would make them show up. 6) Windows MCE has/had a nice keyword-based recording scheduling ability for those times when you want to subscribe to a series but it is not currently being broadcast (thus there are no references to it in the current guide data). Would be a nice feature to have. Or even better -- perhaps a way to search TheTVDB.com and/or TheMovieDB or other data source to be able to set up a potential future broadcast (e.g. if I wanted to record "The Revenant" the first time it's ever broadcast on TV I could just set up a recording for it by name and then it would automatically get recorded the first time it's broadcast). This would also be useful for setting up a future recording for a specific episode that was somehow missed by the "Only new episodes" subscription. 7) For me, the guide entries are not properly displaying the Season and Episode information. I'm only seeing an "E" for Episode number. Screenshot attached. Hope this helps! Edit - revised #7 - it is showing Season and Episode correctly on recordings, but not in the guide view.
  7. Hello everybody! Did the design application for Web OS, please vote and write what you think. If OK, continue to do a PS4 and XBOX ONE. With colleagues think make applications. So far, there is no design of some pages. P.S. I do not speak English well =) https://www.behance.net/gallery/32725695/Emby-LG-Web-OS-DLNA-client-design

    Music UX improvement

    I would like to propose some changes to the Music section UX, which I think would bring some improvements. After playing in there and using the music section for a while, some things I've noticed are a little bit annoying. I will refer at this image, red notations representing sections and yellow ones buttons. 1: When making queues on the go, I want to click the 3 dots button (button #3) to reveal the menu. The problem is if you hover to long over the image, the black cover with thumbs appears and a click over the button #3 will start the album's playback. This will just kill your queue and play the first track. I suggest that the button #3 always stays on top, or that area #1 remains uncovered: this could allow for other futur buttons next to #3 that would remain uncovered. Leaving the buttons on top seems to be the best option though. 2: Everywhere in Emby, clicking the thumb or poster image will get you to a detailed page. In the music section though, this just starts playing the album. If you want to access the detailed page, you need to click the 3 dots to get to the alternate menu, then click open. This is confusing and should be kept the same all over the app: clicking the poster (like area #4) should bring you to the detailed page of the item. Plus, "navigation" clicks happen way more often than "play" clicks. Thus, clicking the thumb or poster should be used for navigation and not playback. For the same reason, I think that area #2 should also bring to the detail page and not start playback. For playback, there is a "play" button that serves this purpose. In area #2, only the yellow buttons should represent other actions than getting to the detail page. Tell me what you think 3psus
  9. I recently switched from plex to emby, and have really been enjoying my experience thus far. Just thought I should share a minor erk I found. When enhanced presentations are disabled (Preferences -> Display tab -> View Styles), if I go into a library folder and click on a video, there still seems to be an overly cluttered menu at the top (picture: http://i.imgur.com/Ydy8l4c.jpg). Clicking some of those links leads me to a new page, and changes the order of the menu entirely. Although this is by no means a big issue, it really causes loss of consistency. I personally never use these (cool) fancy organizational tools like people, networks, genres, etc., and it would be nice to have those entirely out of site when enhanced presentation is not enabled.
  10. Dear coders, admins, et al., I enjoy Media Browser and have been using it for a long time. This is my first post: it's a critique (a nicer way of saying "criticism") of the new and evolving interface. The Media Browser Classic interface is evolving in a direction that I dislike. By default it attempts to be very fancy with posters flying all over the place, but this sacrifices usability for mere eye candy. For finding media to play (the true purpose of a media player, IMO), this pales in comparison to the dense, innate usability of a windows-centric, mouse and keyboard, text-based list interface. The interface I just described most efficiently supports my expectations. My expectations are to (1) quickly find one of a handful of new movies that have been loaded to my hard drive, or (2) find an old movie that I want to re-watch. By "new" I mean that the directory entry (e.g. "The Matrix (1999)") or the movie file (e.g. "The Matrix (1999)\Matrix.mkv" since I may have upgraded the file) has a newer, modified timestamp. By "old" I mean that I want to search for it by name, alphabetically. I know where everything is. I have my movies in separate folders that describe the source (DVD collection, movies ripped, movies downloaded), the type (DVD, Bluray), etc. What I want is a sticky option to put EVERYTHING in list view and I want it to survive version upgrades and installs. I suggest you provide a drop-down that selects the default view then afterward, the user, at their discretion, can configure different views here and there where appropriate. To find new movies, you can provide an option to list "New Movies" and I want to configure (1) how many days or weeks old constitutes "new" and (2) the maximum # of movies to list therein. I want the option to drop into one of my scan folders where I can use pg-up, pg-down, use the mouse scroll wheel or hit the first letter of the movie to QUICKLY find the movie. Crucially, I want to configure multiple top-level entry points that allow me to enter the same directory but with different sort orders: I want to click on "DVD Movie Collection by Timestamp" and enter D:\Movies.DVD.Collection, sorted by timestamp. I can then find my newest movies. Give me that and you can throw out the "New Movies" entry point. But I ALSO want to click on "DVD Movie Collection by Name" and enter the folder sorted alphabetically. If I feel like perusing by genre (for the rare occasion when I don't have a specific movie I intend to watch), I want to click on "Genre" and "Sci-Fi by Timestamp" or "Sci-Fi by Name". To summarize: I care not a whit (OK, perhaps one or two whits) about a fancy interface because it's INEFFICIENT. I want an EFFICIENT, FAST interface where I can quickly find the movie I desire to watch. Go ahead and make fancy interfaces for other devices and other purposes: it's important. But for people like myself, PLEASE provide a quick, list-based, keyboard and mouse wheel, windows-centric interface that can be made the default, is sticky and is recursive against every view and subfolder.
  11. This is a request from my wife, who likes Plex better because you can select the audio track and subtitles before launching the movie. I like MBT better as an all-in-one solution to Plex's more limited capacity, but I have to hand this one to her: that feature really is nice when dealing with a lot of foreign-language content.

    Android TV Mockups

    Hello all! As a bit of an exercise in UI design, I've been creating a UI mockup for Android TV in Photoshop, and I'd love the community's feedback. Please be gentle, though, as I'm a systems administrator by trade who is really new to the whole application design thing, but I'm hoping to someday make a career out of it. The album, with all images and descriptions can be found here. Here's a couple for starters, sorry about the size/aliasing: Thanks, guys! --edited to embed images
  13. Hi Roku Devs, Might it be possible to [have an option to] increase the length of recently added for TV. Sometimes i dont get to watch anything until the weekends when there are perhaps 20 additions added. So i current limit (12?) is overly restrictive for me. Maybe i am not the only one. Thank you for considering.
  14. Hi Roku Dev Team, When lists are are very long eg. 1000 Movies, 600 Artists it can take a while to find content, The search helps of course but is not as ergonomic as a fast 'browse to' Might it be a useful option to allow the seek buttons on remote to jump to next character eg Start of B's, C's D's etc.. Maybe an option - "Seek Behaviour in UI" Page Up/Down, Next/Prev Letter (Fixed), Dynamic (Page Up/Down for lists < 75?, Next/Prev Letter for lists >=75) If holding down the seek for more than x seconds could change the behaviour to scrolling through letters which appear on the screen even better IMO (making dynamic suggestion redundant?) What do you think to this suggestion or something like it? thanks for consideration.

There is also a ‘light’ theme available (but this doesn’t have the same polish or ‘completeness’ as the standard theme) And of course, you can mix and match UI elements quickly and easily to suit your preferences Start screen with metro icons. Tiles are colour coded into their respective categories (Settings, Music, Video, etc) The background image animates in a subtle glowing cycle Entirely new bar design for on-screen media controls Media Center TV guide (Just note that I'm also using My Channel Logos to change the guide layout – this is not part of Modern8) Among other minor changes Extended time format Improved ‘now playing-hinting info’ for TV – text should no longer be cut off for long titles A few text changes (English only) for clarity and/or aesthetics LIST OF MEDIA CENTER SUB CATEGORIES WITH ENHANCED MODERN UI Picture favourites Picture library Video library Music favourites Music library Music search Movie guide Movie library Movies search DVD TV guide Recorded TV TV guide search Power options Settings LIST OF REVISED STRINGS (does not apply to the NO STRING CHANGES/NON-ENGLISH VERSION) old string new string shut down power options sync sync device search search music search search guide search search movies VIEW CATEGORIES GUIDE CATEGORIES All All Channels other showings showings Resolve Conflict Review Conflict resolve conflict review conflict Programme Details Details programme details details programme information information (changed to 'info' since v1.3) interactive tv interactive Exit Exit Media Center Log Off Sign Out LOG OFF WINDOWS SIGN OUT OF WINDOWS Are you sure you want to log off? Are you sure you want to sign out? View Song List Now Playing List TEXT [empty/blank string - replaced with a graphical icon on the media controls bar. This is still included with the NO STRING CHANGES VERSION] LIMITATIONS - PLEASE READ FURTHER DETAILS MAY BE FOUND IN THE CONTAINED README FILES Media Center includes most of its own sounds, however it still uses one sound which is shared by the Windows OS: the 'Default Beep' The included .reg registry files can quickly change the 'Default Beep' to the provided Xbox One sound effect found in the Modern8 Audio directory. The .reg registry files work exactly as if you were to manually change the 'Default Beep' via the Windows control panel; but obviously much faster! Much of Modern8’s text elements have been colourized white. This may be an issue for other add-ons such which contain predominantly light backgrounds. Alternative files are provided for darker text if needed. If ENGLISH is NOT your operating system language, you should choose the NON-ENGLISH version to download. Modern8 makes a few subtle language changes. As mentioned briefly above, the included ‘light’ theme currently doesn’t have the same polish as the standard theme – I have just quickly inverted the colours of the standard theme ORIGINAL WORKS I DID NOT create everything from scratch myself, details of original art sources are included in the corresponding README file Big thanks to Keef and his un8y theme, which inspired Modern8. It was a great template and an inspiration for me to make this theme. (I also grabbed a few of your icons )
