  1. I ran into an edge case in multi-version naming. I have 2 cuts of the film The Killing of a Chinese Bookie. Afaik, the cuts are only referred to as the 1976 cut and the 1978 cut. My naming is as follows: `The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976)/The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976) [1976 Cut].mkv` `The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976)/The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976) [1978 Cut].mkv` Emby is picking up the date from the version string and not from within the parenthesis. This also occurs when using the hyphen method for the versions. The result is that 2 separate films appear in my collection when they should appear as 2 different versions of the same film. While I think this should be fixed in whatever parsing routines Emby is using, if there is a manual change I can make to the nfo file in the meantime, that would be great. Thanks for all the hard work. I am happily a lifetime member.
  2. One of the remote users on my server has been reporting freezing and stuttering quite often despite waiting for the transcode to reach 100%. It has happen across several different movies. It will play fine for some time but after 10-30 minutes the movie will freeze and it will never stutter and freeze from that point on. The movie is always 100% transcoded before playback begins and both of our speeds are quite sufficient for streaming and we experience no problems on any other sites. Were mainly using the web interface and google chrome for the remote user to play movies but have tried using embycon for kodi and experienced the same problem but much worse (froze every 2 minutes). I've tried enabling and disabling hardware acceleration as well as limiting the bitrate. In the past we've had success using 1080p 5mbps and waiting 30-45 minutes before playback. Now with the same settings were experiencing way more problems. Not quite sure what more i can try.
  3. I have a movie that I am trying to add to my Movie Library but not sure how since it doesn't appear in either of the 2 online movie databases ?? The movie is - Avatar - If you don't play the game, the games plays you. (And no it is not the Avatar your thinking of made in 2009) Does Emby have a 'blank' or 'template' movie page that can be loaded which doesn't require a IMDb or TMDb number so I can add the details manually ? --------- Yes this movie exists, there is a copy for sale on EBay Canada - http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Avatar-DVD-If-You-Dont-Play-The-Game-the-Game-Plays-You-776-/172861911991?hash=item283f5f73b7:g:8BsAAOSwZG9WhuQk Here is a copy of my cover - Thanks

    Emby Neuling- Ein paar Fragen

    Hallo liebe Community Derzeit teste ich Emby Theater auf einer Windows 10 x64 Plattform als Arternative zu Plex mit dem Plex Media Player. Der erste Eindruck ist sehr positiv, ein paar Fragen/Anregungen oder Wünsche habe ich aber. 1 Der Loginbildschirm: Hier eine kosmetische Sache: Ist es möglich im Loginbildschirm lediglich die Benutzer anzuzeigen? Also das "Manual Login", "Emby Connect" und "Change Server" augeblendet werden? 2. Abmelden von Benutzern: Mein Emby läuft auf einem dedzierten HTPC Client. Dieser ist 24/7 online. Schön wäre es, wenn sich ein Benutzer nach Inaktivität von bspw. 20 Minuten automatisch abmeldet und Emby dann wieder auf den Anmeldebildschirm wechselt. 3. Parallele Streams Ist es möglich die maximale Anzahls an parallelen Streams auf dem Server festzulegen? 4. Cover manuell bearbeiten Wenn ich Cover von Filmen und CD's bearbeiten möchte steht da nur "Coming Soon". Ist derzeit eine manuelle Bearbeitung dieser Informationen nicht möglich? 5. Coverart Plugin: Kann ich im Coverart Plugin einstellen dass in der Kopfzeile des jeweiligen FIlms der "Bluray" bzw. "DVD" Schriftzug angezeigt wird? Ich finde nur die Darstellung HD/SD, den Videocodec oder das Containerformat. 6. Audiospuren während des Films: Wenn ich einen Film starte und die Audiotonspur ändern möchte, dann zeigt mir die Software keine Sprache an. Es steht dann jeweils bspw. 6x Surround 5.1. So kann ich nicht erkennen, welche dieser Tonspuren bspw. die englische ist. Plex hat das hier besser gelöst da es die Sprache mitanzeigt. Wenn mir jemand ein paar dieser Fragen beantworten könnte wäre ich sehr dankbar :-) Freundliche Grüsse
  5. @ Emby developers... i know it is a long post, but please read through it, there are some weird and unexplained isses readring Emby Server... First off all I want to thank you for creating Emby- It is a great open source media-solution. But there a a few things about Emby that just are an absolut NOGO (at least till today), and sadly pervent me from using Emby. I have been using XMBC resp. KODI directy with smb-shares of a fileserver for many years (and still do) because it is simply the best media player out there. Period. They have decades of experiance in media-playback. The format-support and functionality is unmatched and I do not see this chaning. But becaue I am looking for a centralized library (and the SQL-Library you can setup as a central library in Kodi is not quite the real thing) and also I need some Internet or VPN access to stream when not at home. This can be done very rudimentary with the "chorus-webinterface" in Kodi. But centralized library and internet-access does NOT really work in Kodi so I tried to switch to Emby as a client-server model. I also tried Plex, but their business-model is an absolut NOGO. There is no valid reason (at least for somone who knows what he is doing) to accept the fact of having to create an account with plex and login just to stream my local content. Also at the end it is NOT opensource, because the clients are not opensource. I love that I can create local user-accounts on Emby-Server and have away-from-home access without having to create an account. So I hope Emby can replace my local setup and provide me with my 2 new needs which are central library and internet-access / sharing librarys with friends and family. So Emby should do: 1. My local Network streaming from Emby srv. to my 2 Kodi clients (DLNA) (I dont want to use the Emby-Kodi plugin- for many reasons, so please do not propose this.) 2. Internet or VPN access and Library-sharing So in a first step I am trying to get Emby to do the local stuff, so I can add Emby to my existing setup. BUT I AM HAVING MAJOR ISSUES with the following: -> Transcoding: To replace my current local-lan streaming with Emby, Emby wil have to be able to stream locally WITHOUT ANY transcoding. Period. No exceptions. I can not unterstand why you guys would make is soooo difficulft to achieve. In my local gigabit-LAN I only stream to my Kodi clients (Raspberry Pi and Apple TV4). Kodi on RPi and on ATV4 do NEVER need transcoding. I have not experianced one single file that could not be handeled natively. The network could handle x-times the bitrate, the max. rates server-side have been set to 100mb/s, the clients are more than capable. The DLNA-Profiles were created and matched. But still it transcodes in certain cases. I created a DLNA-Profile on the Server from scratch for Kodi. The Profile is setup to directplay everthing. I chekced the logs and the profile chatches on in all cases (start the stream on webinterface and send to client(s) or add the DLNA-source to Kodi and browse and start it from there. So in all cases the profile matches. But still sometimes thing get transcoded- so I did some testing: Example 1: I browse to a videofile in the webinterface and send it to play on Kodi-client. -> Direct play (Great!) I add the DLNA-source to the same Kodi-client and start the same file from there -> Transcoding (NOT Great!) Example 2: I browse to a videofile in the webinterface and send it to play on Kodi-client. -> Direct play (Great!) I add the DLNA-source to my Kodi-client and start the same file from there -> No play. (Srv.-Log says "unplayable item") I remane the file to different name -> I add the DLNA-source to my Kodi-client and start the same file from there -> Direct play Just these two small tests show me that there must be something seriously wrong. Can anyone provide me with a solution (clean or dirty) to prevent transcoding in the LAN (like Plex?) The transcoding is great for internet access with any client and slower connections- but it must be possible to prevent it in your loal setup. - In-movies navigation This "olny" concerns transcoded movies. There is no in-movie naviagation other than "pause". I know this has been mentioned by many- but still nothing has changed. How is this even acceptable by users? I just dont get it. This is one of the absolut core-functionalities of a media-center. Are there plans to change that. If yes, I can live with it for some time... - Emby - "Ads" vs. Opensource Emby is advertised as open-source. You really have to get rid of the constant nagging reminders to go "premium". This is not compliant with open-source sw and is really not ok. I know- with more functionality comes more complexity. But why not focus on the core features before adding more and more additional features? (Better do 1 thing wright whan 10 things half-way) Thanks for any reply and input. Cheers
