    Google Drive as source

    Please click "Like this" and share it if you want to support this feature. Thank you ! Hello, There is a Kodi addon call "gdrive" from ddurdle who can read videos (original and transcoding version) directly from Google Drive. Why not build on this idea to integrate Google Drive as source directly in Emby Server ? In addition, Emby could generate automatically the STRM files from one or many Drive folders. And transcodings are already available with Drive so no need to transcode with Emby server. What do you think ? ------------- Three reasons why this feature will be useful and awesome: 1. Cloud is the future and today the cost is affordable. I have a Google Drive Unlimited for $50/month (ie $600/year) and I have unlimited space that is secured against crashes. Knowing the cost of hard drive and the cost of power consumption, its a very good deal. 2. Google Drive transcode video file. This provides different stream quality like Youtube (1080p, 720p, 480p and 360p) and the "image quality/compression ratio" is very satisfying. I can play 720p video on my poor 4 Mbits DSL. 3. You don't need to have a big server. Personally, I opted for a little dedicated server (Kimsufi 2G) for the cost and I can leave it run 24/7! Furthermore, me and my friends can watch movies from anywhere! Basics features that should be included: GOOGLE APPS OAUTH2 for activation and permission playing transcoded version (MP4 360p, 480p, 720p & 1080p) directly into Emby's app playing original file (avi, mkv, mp4) directly into Emby's app import embedded subtitles porwerful script module for multiple folder scanning and STRM generating

    GDrive - emby_autoscan

    I have been working on a python script to pull file changes from GDrive using google’s api, get the file info and send a request to emby’s api to update the file path via the library/media/updated endpoint. So far I have been able to successfully do this, script have been running with no issues for 24 hrs before I make it public there are a few improvements that I have to make. I have tested this on a windows machine, I would like to find a few ppl with different OS to make sure that it works fine there, so please is interested send a PM. I do have an Emby related question, after a request has been sent and media is scheduled to be refreshed, what happens if the server is restarted before that task is completed? Here is the github link: https://github.com/atrpm/emby_gdrive_autoscan
  6. Hi! here is my current Emby setup. Emby Server is running on Windows and linked to Google Drive for media accessed via Google File Stream. It's running great. But I want to switch to Android so can anyone tell me how to link my Gdrive account in order to access the media from there in Emby Server for Android is there an app equivalent to Google File-stream for Android? Thanks in advance.

    Amazon Drive

    As Amazon has released a cheap unlimited storage, are you planning to create a sync plugin for emby server? Cheers, charmaex
  8. Currently, I have a Google Drive library mounted on my server and Emby can use it really fine. I do however want emby to read from my owncloud server instead, because in owncloud is where I really want to keep my files; it allows tagging and it's a general purpose file system. Can emby integrate in any way with owncloud? What I want is for emby to read the tags I assign in owncloud to my files, so I can't simply mount my owncloud, cause the tags are not pushed through with a simple mount. I really don't know if I can mount owncloud with extended attributes and go that route, but I imagine emby doesn't read extended attributes;) Any pointers?

    Sync to External drive

    Hello, I've tried this on two different portable hard drives, but I cannot get the sync plug-in to choose a folder other than the root folder on each drive. Has anyone else experienced this? Reboot did not help. This is on sync 3.0.5582.40801 and server 3.0.5675.1 I can't see anything obvious in the server log, but here it is anyway. server-63573638400.zip

    Playback - Synced or Local File

    Hi All, I am very new to the Emby scene and was hoping sombody could give me a little help. i have set up a VPS with Emby and so far i am very very impressed. i have a few questions regarding syncing. 1. Can you specify that Emby only ever streams from your google drive and not stream the local file? 2. is there a way to free up space once it has been synced and delete the local file? My VPS is only 50GB and i want to use Emby to manage my library but 50gb VPS doesn't store a lot. my media collection is about 950GB i was thinking that if i upload it to the vps bit by bit could i sync it to google drive and then delete the content from my VPS? and advice would be greatly appreciated Sutherland
  11. Hi, So about a week ago I had a 2TB drive fail on me and all attempts to recover either the drive or the data were not successful. Thankfully out of all the drives I store media on it was probably the least important as it was 2D rips of a bunch of my 3D movies so they are recoverable, but it will still be a bit of work. After giving up on the drive I did start seriously thinking about the condition of my other drives so I ran a check using Crystal Disk Info only to find that 3 of the 12 drives I have remaining have issues and Crystal Disk Info flags them with the big yellow "Caution" flag. At that point I decided I have ignored any sort of disaster recovery plan for far too long. My storage setup is comprised of 2 Mediasonic ProBox H82-SU3S2 8 Bay External Hard Drive Enclosures that are attached via USB3.0 to a Windows 8.1 rig. Currently I have 4 2TB drives (Green) and 8 3TB Drives and 1 6TB drive that is on the way to me as I write this. Of the 29TB of real storage that I have I would say I am at about 80% used, it is all movies and TV shows. With that percent of used space I am really on the side of a solution that I can add non-empty disk to to save me trying to move data around for days, or more, to get free drives to keep adding to an expanding storage pool. I did look at Windows Storage Spaces, but besides the fact it has to format your drives the user comments I was reading were about 50/50 on the bad and good. I have been reading a bit on DriveBender and StableBit DrivePool. A few years ago I had tried FlexRAID but found quite soon in that, while it was great for pooling, the "backup" processes that would occur overnight were not even getting close to complete before the morning. Did post that on the FlexRAID forums and it was attributed to the drives being in external USB enclosures. I am not looking to replicate the media, mirroring, but rather something along the lines of using parity drives and at least right now, a Windows solution. Would be appreciative of insight from the MB masses on what they are doing\using to protect against the unavoidable drive death. Thanks much CrashKelly
