  1. Everything was working fine, and I noticed a few days ago that there were alerts, and all of them indicating that the check for application updates failed, and the check for the plugin updates failed. It used to work because I remember seeing the updates. Where do I start to look?

    New version Update

    I was just wondering with Windows 10 around the corner can we expect the new version of Emby Theater to be released soon? Last I heard it was still in alpha testing which was sometime ago. Just thinking ahead as I currently use Emby for WMC and will not be able to upgrade to Windows 10 as WMC is dead.

    update to emby server mac?

    Hello, I'm still thinking about updating from emby server version to … even if the old version runs on my Mac mini without any problem. Therefore I have some questions: 1) which macOS version do I need for emby Server Is High Sierra Version 10.13.6 still okay?. 2) I made many manual changes in the metadata of my emby library. Will they remain or go lost after an update to a newer server version? 3) I use emby only for music-streaming. Are there any new features (for example: integration of podcast or radio) in the new server version? Best regards zenobit06

    New version for Roku

    Anyone know if the Roku app is going to be updated soon? As far as I know its been quite a while for the one from the app store to get any form of update? I know there is a beta, but I want to run the production version rather than that. Nice to think there is a juicy update coming (like no MPEG2 transcoding on Roku stick) before Christmas. Thanks....
  5. hi my server in windows can't update plugins! it shows me emby updates without any problems. I have to update DLNA plugin from 1.0.31 to 1.0.33 manually. connected with a vpn, but problem is still alive! restarted emby and PC but doesn't work logs.zip
  6. Hi Emby I've been a long time users - love your app. Quick question, I recently ran into a weird problem where my Emby Theatre showed a blank screen after launch by the screen saver worked perfectly. For some weird reason I could not get Emby Theater to show my library but I could connect via any other device and stream so the server was working perfectly. I then decided to reinstall and now Emby Theater looks quite different - with cut down options on the setting screen. Has something recently been overhauled? My current versions are:- Server - Windows Emby Theater 1 .1.257.0 The interface looks quite different with a big green block around each movie as you navigate. I also notice that the window in EMBY Theater has a white ribbon on the top - like it's in a window. Can that be removed as it looks horrible on my big screen (I'm running a PC into my LG TV) Thanks for the help - Rob
  7. Hello! I just have a question about updating my Synology NAS and if it is safe to update it to the new DSM 6.2.2-24922 update 2 with my Emby Server running on it. The DSM update was just released https://www.synology.com/en-us/releaseNote/DS918+ on the 4th of July. The only reason why I ask this is because I've updated, restarted, and shutdown my NAS is the past, and I've often gotten times where I could not run Emby after the update, restart, or shutdown was complete, but I don't know if it could have done something with this https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/73984-emby-on-synology-ds918-won’t-run-after-restart-shutdown/ that I posted a little while ago and solved the issue on. So, since my NAS just received the update as of today, despite it being released on the 4th of July, I have yet to download and install it because I want to know if it is safe to do so for Emby and my NAS so that I don't have the same problem like I did before in the past from the second link I shared above. Plus, what to do (precautions) before I download and install the update on my NAS for the Emby Server. Anything would be appreciated. Thanks!
  8. Greetings! I have been living with a "ghost" playlist issue for some time now (placed a m3u file in a lib folder, then deleted it, then added it back, and since the playlist contents have been "frozen"), so today decided to give a manual fix a try inspecting/manipulating the db directly. I think the root cause is that the record in the db does not have a path to the corresponding m3u file anymore Because of this I decided (after a db backup) to attempt both UPDATE and DELETE of the record, but in both cases I get back the error in the title... My experience with sqlite is non-existent, so I tried doing this from multiple clients (extenal dBeaver adapter, TNAS's pre-installed 'sqlite3' binary, and again using the TNAS's python + sqlite adapter), but the error is consistent. Does anybody have any suggestion / had similar issues? Thanks in advance ---- Device: F2-220 TOS version: 4.0.13 Emby Server version:
  9. Hello, I've been using Emby for quite a while without any issues that would prevent me from watching videos, etc. However, after updating the server to the latest version ( on armv7 on Debian) there are some issues with video playback. Before the update, I was able to stream videos (H264 in MKV containers) without the need to transcode them. I am running the server on a RaspberryPi 3B, so transcoding would not be an option as it definitely can't happen in realtime (log attached). After the update, the videos somehow need to be transcoded in order to be played back properly. TranscodeReasons=ContainerNotSupported Why is there a flag set for mkv not being supported? Few lines higher: 2019-04-22 11:54:23.059 Info App: Profile: Unnamed, Path:*****.mkv, isEligibleForDirectPlay: True, isEligibleForDirectStream: True This would not be an issue if the transcoding was happening in realtime, but its not. I tried disabling hardware acceleration in the server settings, and yes, it did prevent the transcoding process from executing, the video did start, but it was choppy, it kept buffering after three seconds of playback, which I suppose was playing OK before updating. Note that I obviously tried playing different files, with similar results. I have to note that I am using an app remotely, yes, connections both on the server and client side are an another variable in the process, but I highly doubt it could have such an impact, this wasn't happening before. I'll test it in a few days using local connection and post the result here. Attaching emby and ffmpeg logs (I replaced my IP with some text for safety reasons). Thanks for the help. --Edit: I've found some older logs from previous server version, the transcode flag was still set, but it wasn't transcoding the file but "StreamTranscode". I also attached the old logs. embyLog.txt ffmpegLog.txt oldFfmpegLog.txt oldEmbyLog.txt
  10. Hi Guys Just updated my emby server. Have now got a few problems with Emby/ ALexa/ Synology418 Problem 1 - Emby no longer recognises any of my artists -( all music named and tagged correctly and previously no problems) For example I ask play music by the Eagles the answer is "I could not find Eagles" - same for all artists. Problem 2 - Emby is given a command and then asks is there anything else and does not follow command. For example Emby play some music - silence for a few seconds then Emby asks "is there anything else" .Then shuts down. If you say yes - just repeats the question "is there anything else" in a loop Problem 3 - When asked to play an album - states the album and the artist( despite not being able to access by artist request) plays the first song and then stops. Problem 4 - Wont recognise a speaker until skill disabled and then re enabled Problem 5 - Reinstalled Emby server - Library very slow to access or search.....takes up to 10 mins to load library sometimes and then a search command can take just as long......(Good wifi, high speed internet, computer using windows 10 upto date and functioning normally) All software updated to latest versions. It was very difficult to find the Library path on reinstall as the old path would not connect. Other problems with connectivity - ie getting "cannot access your emby skill" or "server timed out try again' responses much more often........ has led me to cancel my Premiere subscription for the moment as Emby/ Alexa combination not useable. I cant seem to find the glitch /problem.

    Question about bandwidth limit setting

    So today I went through all of the menus looking for the bandwidth limit that I believe used to be in Advanced or may Transcoding. It now appears to have disappeared from one of the recent updates. Is it hidden in a new menu somewhere? The reason I ask is because I just upgraded from 50/50mbps internet to 1/1gbps and I want to adjust from the value that I previously had set.
  13. Since joining Emby last December, I have spent a lot of time organizing my media libraries, including correcting any mis-'identify' linking, updating metadata, and even setting custom "sort as" information to organize my libraries. Then the previous media server updated versions came out, I installed the new server version, and to my dismay, all of that custom information and work was lost! as the server restarted and essentially ran what looked like a fresh scan and link process. So much work and time, gone in an instant. I suspect that there's a way for me to help ensure this doesn't happen again, before I install the latest update. I appreciate any guidance or tips to help ensure that I don't make this same mistake again. I did find the 'lock this metadata' near the bottom of the metadata screen for each individual piece of media - is that sufficient to select to preserve my inputs? Or is there more to be done. Thanks in advance!
  14. I am completely devastated here. My Emby Server upgraded to v4 last night (something I have really been looking forward to). Now it seems like a majority of my locally created metadata (mainly for my extensive Music Video library) is completely gone!!?? The paths are pointing to the right location where the data was before and after the upgrade. I have tried to re-assign the paths again and then run several new library scans with no change. I have restarted the pc and the Emby Server several times. Now I am getting a slight panic attack that the YEARS of tagging all these videos with actors, composers and directors is forever gone! And since there is no Metadata supplier to talk of, it is not possible to quickly re-create. What can I possibly do? Help! :-( (The logfile I want to attach is more that 90 MB so I cant attach that one) embyserver-63683222140.txt hardware_detection-63683222143.txt
  15. Hi, Any of you that have read some of my posts (or maybe rants ) may have realized I'm not real happy with the Asustor updates coming from App. Central. But thanks to a fellow Asustor user lllrinzlerlll , he has let me know a way to keep your Asustor version up-to-date and not have to put up with the atrocious versions we are subjected to. Have heard that Admin Luke is trying to get Asustor to change the way they write the updates or maybe make them ourselves but til then this is the way a few of us are doing it. We are copying the Mono Linux version over what is installed on the NAS. - just go to - https://github.com/M...releases/latest , select Emby.Mono.zip release. When you unzip the Mono version, you will notice in step 5/6 that it's the same files and structure as what you already have. (Would strongly suggest you make a backup copy of this whole section from your NAS - FIRST - just in case it doesn't work or it goofs in some way. That way you can just copy it all back over the top of the original files/folders. Once you've done it once and worked, keep a copy of the last update, just in case the new one isn't liked, you can always just copy it back over the new files and keep using the previous version.) If you haven't already enabled SSH, then open Services, goto Terminal and enable the SSH service. Usually uses port 22. How to install - 1. On the NAS log into Emby and click shutdown, then in Asustor App Central disable Emby 2. Download Emby.Mono.zip to a PC and unpack the zip file to a folder 3. Download and install WinSCP to a PC 4. In WinSCP create an FTP connection with your NAS, you will need to know the IP address, a user and password and have FTP or SFTP enabled in the NAS under settings, FTP is normally port 21 and SFTP is normally port 22 (you will see port number in WinSCP when creating a connection, sometimes its autofilled) 5. In the WinSCP remote window navigate to volume1/@.plugins/AppCentral/mediabrowser/bin (if you cant see @.plugins then you need to enable view hidden files in WinSCP) 6. In the WinSCP local window navigate to where you have the Emby Server unpacked 7. You can highlight all local files and drag them across to the remote path 8. Once complete (for me it took around 10 seconds), you can disconnect your WinSCP session 9. Go back to Asustor App Central and re-enable Emby 10. Give it a minute and then log into Emby, you should be running the latest Linux version you downloaded from the Emby site The benefit of this is Asustor has no idea you have upgraded the system and thinks its running the latest version from the Asustor servers. As long as you don't upgrade Emby from App Central and do it this way every time you will be fine. You can update Emby whenever a new Linux version is available on the Emby site Doing it this way only upgrades the Emby version and doesn't touch the rest of your files (where your metadata is etc). However make sure your not overriding any folders etc where your settings are saved. ------------------------- If any of this is beyond your understanding or you are not comfortable with zip files, copying files via an FTP style program or getting your "hands dirty" in the files section of your NAS, then please don't do it, get someone who is comfortable doing it, and knows what they are doing. ------------------------ The instructions are a direct copy from an email lllrinzlerlll sent me and yes it does work, so thank you very much lllrinzlerlll for all your help.
  16. ISSUES Genres are messed up. I now have a "Science Fiction" genre and a "Science-Fiction" genre. I have zero movies or tv shows using "Science-Fiction" with the hyphen in the metadata. I specifically have to change this for every single science fiction tv show I add to my library because TVDB uses the name with a hyphen whereas TMDB does not and I want everything to match. When I click on "Science-Fiction" genre under Genres, it brings up all my science fiction movies/shows before the update. I double checked the metadata and nfos and I have it listed as just "Science Fiction" for all those movies/shows. But I also have a "Science Fiction" genre under Genres. If I click on that, it brings up the two science fiction movies I added to the library today post-update. So unless you have a fix, I'm going to have to go through almost 1000 movies and shows and delete the current science fiction genre in the metadata and then re-add it so they all are grouped into the same genre. No filter or sorting in Favorites depending on how you reach Favorites. 1. Click on Movies or TV Shows under My Media on the home screen and then click on Favorites from the top bar, it gives you no sorting or filtering. 2. If you click on Favorites from the home screen at the very top (Home / Favorites) then click on Favorite Movies or Favorite TV Shows, it will give you the filter and sorting options. This happens when using a browser on my desktop and also in the Android app. When you access Collections from the Home Screen under My Media, there's a single random year listed under every title of each collection. I can't make any sense what the date corresponds to. It's not the year of the earliest or latest movie in the collection. The date doesn't show up under the name of the collection if you go to Movies or TV Shows under My Media first and then select Collections from the top bar. All my chapter image extractions just disappeared. Not a big deal. But I'm wondering if all those GBs of images were deleted or do I need to go in and manually do so? I'm running the scan again right now. OPINIONS Totals are no longer listed. No idea how many movies or tv shows/episodes I have unless I go into statistics which I do not like at all. I think totals should be listed on just about everything. Movies, TV Shows, Collections, Favorites, Genres, etc. The big white bars with arrows to horizontal scroll in various places needs a redesign imo. The look seems out of place with the rest of it. I read in one of your comments to another user about the fact that there were so many fundamental changes to the database that its impossible to go back to a previous version. I think in the future it would be wise to give a pop up warning for automatic update users saying that it won't be possible to roll back to a previous version, remind users to do a backup and give the user a chance to defer the update until they are 100% ready. Only on the big updates that really change things like 4.0 did.
  17. Since the update yesterday I can no longer access my server through any device. A majority of my movies/TV shows metadata was wiped out and even when I try and reset them every time I do a search, either with the name of the file or the IMDB code it finds NOTHING. Everything was working perfectly prior to this update yesterday. I am so beyond frustrated. If anyone can offer any advice it would be greatly appreciated. I am a beginner with all of this and I do not know what to do!!

    Convert Media Failed

    After updating to the latest emby server, I have an alert saying convert media failed. Here is the content of that error: Exception of type 'SQLitePCL.pretty.SQLiteException' was thrown. at SQLitePCL.pretty.SQLiteException.CheckOk(sqlite3 db, Int32 rc) at SQLitePCL.pretty.SQLiteDatabaseConnection.PrepareStatement(String sql, String& tail) at SQLitePCL.pretty.DatabaseConnection.PrepareStatement(IDatabaseConnection This, String sql) at System.Linq.Enumerable.SelectEnumerableIterator`2.MoveNext() at System.Linq.Enumerable.TryGetFirst[TSource](IEnumerable`1 source, Boolean& found) at System.Linq.Enumerable.First[TSource](IEnumerable`1 source) at Emby.Sqlite.BaseSqliteRepository.CreateConnection(Boolean isReadOnly) at Emby.Server.Sync.SyncRepository.GetJobs(SyncJobQuery query) at Emby.Server.Sync.SyncJobProcessor.EnsureSyncJobItems(String targetId, CancellationToken cancellationToken) at Emby.Server.Sync.SyncJobProcessor.Sync(IProgress`1 progress, CancellationToken cancellationToken) at Emby.Server.Sync.SyncConvertScheduledTask.Execute(CancellationToken cancellationToken, IProgress`1 progress) at Emby.Server.Implementations.ScheduledTasks.ScheduledTaskWorker.ExecuteInternal(TaskOptions options) is this an issue that will impact my experience or server?

    Emby hide playlist

    Hi, I just updated to the latest version of Emby ( and everything seems to work fine but one problem arises in the My Media overview there is now a section called Playlists and i want it gone. it wasn't there before and should be gone really. Already i've tried to hide/remove it by right-clicking on it but no such option is available. Screenshot: https://i.imgur.com/2FZx2sm.png Am i overlooking something? Thanks!
  20. Hello I'm running an Synology DS211 NAS and last night I updated the synology software to DSM 6.2.1-23824 Update 4. Since this update my Emby service has failed to start. Every time I try to run the service I get an error message stating "Failed to run the package service". Before this update Emby was running perfectly without any issues. As an experiment I've run some other synology packages which I had installed but were stopped just to make sure they could still run, and they do. I'm not sure what to do next. I guess I could uninstall and re-install the Emby package again but I'm reluctant at the moment as I would have to configure it again. As anybody else had the same issue? Any suggestions welcome. thanks Paul
  21. I've been holding off on upgrading Emby, hoping that some day the repo will be fixed. Everything was working fine until a few days ago when I began to get an error when accessing app.emby.media. I can't access my Emby server from app.media.emby until I upgrade according to the message. Is there a workaround for this? I've ran a whole lot of Linux servers over the years and the current method Emby is using, unzipping a file you download every update, is a really poor practice. It can lead to a total package mess. Is there any way to get this update through a managed repository (the proper way of doing things!) or do I just have to suck it up, go against best Linux practices and try to do a totally messy upgrade and hope my Emby server comes out intact on the other side? Thanks.
  22. Emby on Synology DS216play with DSM 6.2.1 I have been using emby server on Synology has for a few months now. After a recent reset of NAS ( reinstall) and install of emby server, It fails to connect with external services. At present I am unable to add emby connect ID, search for meta data, check for updates to emby etc. It's like emby wouldn't connect to internet. I checked and internet is working fine on nas. I don't recall any extra settings to enable emby to access internet. Is there any? Could it be that these are related to problem may be at emby's end.? This is what error message I get when emby tries to check for updates.

    last.fm addon gone?

    I just did a reset of my whole system and reinstalled emby 3.0.5786 and recognized that the last.fm scrobbler plugin was completely gone from the catalog. I know that they pretty much messed up their API, but are there chances that scrobbling music from emby will come back anytime?
