  1. Hi, I've been using Emby for at least month on a temporary server and now consider buying premiere sub, there are some movie collections though that I configured myself, creating custom images, thumbs, description, etc. Will those images and descriptions carry over (if I have premiere sub) when I install Emby server on a dedicated linux server (using the same hdd, but obviously different os) and do backup and restore? OCD kinda kicks in and I really like how I organize my files. Thank you.
  2. Hi folks, Yesterday I used the backup plugin to back up my Emby configuration (which included live TV stuff including some series recordings). I then installed Emby Server on the new server PC I built, and restored the settings. It was pretty painless. Good job! One thing I noticed though is that in Home\Guide\Series there are no recordings listed. I had several series set to record new episodes, but I don't see those on the new server. Is it just that we're in hiatus over the holidays and no new episodes are on the schedule? It's only a few things that I record, so I will res
  3. Hi, I'm an Emby user since 2 or 3 months ago. Still experimenting on some things, but I'm already on a production scenario, with hundreds of items. I've spent a lot of time customizing metadata for single items, and such. As I'm an Emby Premiere user, I'm using the Emby Backup plugin to backup everything in case of disaster. However, I've read recently on other similar posts, and later I confirmed according to the wiki here: https://support.emby.media/support/solutions/articles/44001159936-backup That the Emby Backup plugin does not backup metadata at all. According to the
  4. Hi all, I’m looking to copy all the metadata from my server to a new second server, all file/paths will remain the same. The issue is though that I want both servers to remain running. I’ve tried copying the whole /var/lib/emby folder, and while that works fine to copy the metadata, it glitches out the server if both the original and copy are running at the same time. I can’t remove emby premiere from just one for example, and emby connect starts disconnecting users. I assume there’s some unique server identifier that distinguishes between servers or something like that. Is ther
  5. Read a question just asked about copying user data to a new server with plugin. Is there any sort of documentation on things like where config data is stored, and how to back it up with and without the plugin? I like knowing a bit about systems I'm running so I can tweak a bit. It would be nice to know what I can expect moving my server from Windows to Linux, and how much my users will have to redo. As a first attempt moving my Windows server to CentOS, after I got the server up and running, I copied the contents of my Windows "User/AppData/Roaming/Emby-Server/programdata" into the Uni
  6. I recently rebuilt the PC I have that runs my Emby Server. I used the Server Configuration Backup plugin to backup and restore my configuration and I also have enabled writing of the Play States into the NFO files for each Library. When I reinstalled Emby Server and selected a restore from backup all the server setting and some of the Library information was restored. What was missing was the Play States for Libraries whose Content Type is "Home videos & photos". The Play States for Libraries that are "TV Shows" and "Movies" restored perfectly. After that decided I wanted to change e
  7. I have a EMBY server installed on my Windows10 PC, with "save metadata as nfo" and "Saving artwork into media folders" activated in the library settings. Now I want to build a NAS based on Unraid, surely I backup the files in the list below manually and transfer to new directory as the supporting article indicates. /ProgramData/config /ProgramData/plugins /ProgramData/data/collections /ProgramData/data/playlists /ProgramData/data/displaypreferences.db /ProgramData/data/users.db /ProgramData/data/library.db /ProgramData/metadata But I've noticed the people information in the .nfo file
  8. I am trying to backup files to a portable external drive preserving the original size (profile: original). The video files is correctly copied. However the srt file was not copied and a vtt file is created instead. My problem is that when I plug the drive in my TV, vtt files are not recognised. Could the sync as is copy also the original srt files?

    Backup not restoring watched history

    I upgraded most of the physical hardware in my Emby server and used the backup plugin. Most things transferred over, but no watch history for any users. Is there something that I'm missing? @@cayars

    Backup And Restore Server

    Hi I'm doing a backup test on my mac. I used the server configuration backup extension (plugins) to do my restoration and I copied the metadata in the root folder where the metadata is located after the scan and that before scanning the libraries. The process is as long as if I hadn't transferred the metadata. I wonder if this is normal or if I should also use the NFO extension. In fact I am not sure what exactly this extension does apart from creating .nfo files next to each file. Thank you Edit: I think I used the metadata of another version of Emby that I had installed and which was not

    Restore complete Emby directory?

    Migrating Emby to a new PC but before I started I made a complete copy of C:\users(my user name)\AppData\Roaming\Emby-Server. After reinstalling Emby on the new PC can I just copy and replace\overwrite? Thanks
  13. Hi! This is my first post to this blog - so please tolerate "stupid questions" as I'm neither familiar with this blog nor am I a native english speaker. The problem I'm facing: I'm storing movies on a NAS in my private network at home. By running Emby server 3.2.36.0 on a Windos 7 PC I created many collections and spent ours and ours in creating cover-art and other informations as a lot of the movies are documentaries and other stuff that is not "auto identified" by emby. Later I decided to change the PC to another one running Windows 10 and I installed emby in a much newer version

    Live TV M3U Backups

    Is Emby currently able to set up backups for M3U streams? For example, if I'm streaming Fox from link A thru Emby and all of a sudden link A goes down, is there a way for Emby to automatically start streaming from link A's backup Link B. If Emby is not currently capable of doing this then is there something already in the works or does anyone know of a third party plugin able to achieve this?
  16. Hello, I have recently tried to restore Emby from a backup which was created by the backup and restore app. I have downloaded the latest version of Emby server for Windows and tried to restore from the plugin. I have it working so the plugin can see the restore point I want and I can see it can read the correct settings. When I click restore nothing happens at all. It just closes the point in which it says are you VERY sure? and I click okay or yes and nothing happens apart from closes that screen. Anybody else had this issue and is there a fix?

    Folder Sync for Backup Job

    Hi there, the Folder Sync Plugin can be used for Backup Purposes... But, then please insert a "Move" Option so that i get my Files Moved to the Backup Location (just the original Files, without Transcoding etc.) Really nice would be an Option in Emby to Backup Media (MOVE) to a Folder if defined Users have watched it. That would really help to keep the Libraries organized and not too big.... Thanks for Reading best Regards Brudertac

    Database backup task warnings

    Hi Looking at my logs, I see few warnings when executing the backup task: Warn Server Configuration Backup: /var/lib/emby/config/cinemamode.xml not found Warn Server Configuration Backup: /var/lib/emby/config/fanart.xml not found Warn Server Configuration Backup: /var/lib/emby/config/chapters.xml not found Warn Server Configuration Backup: /var/lib/emby/config/notifications.xml not found Warn Server Configuration Backup: /var/lib/emby/config/autoorganize.xml not found Warn Server Configuration Backup: /var/lib/emby/config/channels.xml not found Warn Server Configuration Backup: /
  19. Can we have a feature in the backup plugin to archive or compress the configuration backups? The block size on my ZFS share that it's backing up to is quite large, so the 19.0 MB of backup data for each backup is taking up 163 MB of space. Plus, since it's a backup, I can't imagine why it shouldn't be in a tar archive anyway. I think this would be simple to implement; eg, have it on by default or a toggle in the backup configuration, and then when it's trying to restore a backup just untar/unzip the archive to a temporary directory.

    Emby Server Crashing

    After updating to the new 4.x platform of emby I have been experiencing APPCRASH for embyserver.exe Fault Module Name: KERNELBASE.dll Fault Module Version: 6.1.7601.24214 Locale ID: 1033 Every time I check the server, I have anywhere from 1-10 of these windows open. The EmbyServer.exe seems that it restarts itself after the crash. But I suspect that it causes a lot of random hangs on my server and when I try to load the my emby home page, it will load half, I will terminate the app and re open and then it will all load. This is all coming in conjunction frequent database clean

    Backup Collection Artwork

    The backup plug-in backs up playlists but not collections in appdata\roaming\media-browser-server\data I use custom artwork in my Collections and it would be useful to have the backup plug-in backup all user data. Having to manually backup the collections folder is a major annoyance.

  24. Hello All! I've been using Emby Server on Windows for quite a while, but decided to shift to a NAS based server. I started with the Synology DS218. I've used the Backup and Restore Plugin multiple times in the past when reloading Emby Server on both the same and new PC's and never had any issues. I've search the forum looking for the answer, but haven't been able to find anything. ** SETUP ** I ran through the tutorial for setting up Synology Folder Permissions, giving the "embsvr" user read/write access to all folders, then rebuilt the library structure and migrated the m

    Migration question

    Hi guys, I am in the process of migrating an emby server from a cubietruck (armhf) to a TV box running Armbian for AMLOGIC devices (aarch64). I was planning on following the instructions for manual migration in the wiki. However, I was wondering whether given I have the exact same path for my media files as before, can I not just copy the library.db as well? What I am doing is, I am mounting two folders from my NAS (one for movies, the other for TV shows) using NFS to the exact same location they were on before and that is then also my media path. Cheers, chessplayer
