  1. This is my very first post / issue out here, so apologies if I miss something while reporting it. So far a simple google search solved all issues Since the latest update (Currently on Ver., for some odd reason the TV Shows are not displaying the unwatched / latest episodes when the particular show is opened up. I have to specifically go to Show >> Scroll to Season >> Scroll to Episode, to see this episode which has been added in case I want to refresh its metadata or watch it specifically. Previously the latest / unwatched episodes would get displayed above the seasons list and below the tv show info. I tried checking the settings to see if anything had changed, but nothing was changed and couldn't find anything in the changelog regarding the episode display change. Is this an intended change or bug? embyserver.txt
  2. Hi guys, I created those simple library icons for myself but decided to share - maybe someone will find them useful. Every icon is a PNG file in 1280x720 px. Download link: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/15SGUccIljBZEysLj-cuMzpJ3I3QOVbIB?usp=sharing

    "Better" identify library

    Hi, I'm new here. I added several movies to my library, but the names weren't 100% accurate, for example: "expendables.mkv", which was recognized as "expendables 4" I don't know if Emby would need the information there like "expendables 1.mkv", but there are several of these movies that were added that ended up like this, having only the name of the movie, without informing the "order" (like the movie "Scream .mkv" which emby recognized as "Scream 5"). In a "Manga" reader that i did, i make this code to "find" the most probably correct match. I'm not a developer, i just tryed make the code until it give-me a good result. Code running with 2473 movies in db, and it find the match easily (I used it a lot with all 1.378 manga that i have, and it update each correctly, without a problem), so... Is there a way to implement something like this on emby? I know that the code is way to not optimized, but, for now is what i can do. Code: function GetAllMangaMatches(Lista, Nome){ let NovaLista = Clone(Lista); let Retorno = {Vazio: ''}; let Mangas = []; let Counter = 0; while (!Empty(Retorno)) { if(Counter > Lista.length) break; Retorno = FiltrarManga(NovaLista, Nome); if(!Empty(Retorno)) { Mangas.push(Retorno); delete(NovaLista[NovaLista.indexOf(Retorno)]); NovaLista = CleanArray(NovaLista); } Counter++; } return Mangas; } function Clone(Objeto) { let Copia = null; if(!Array.isArray(Objeto)) Copia = Object.assign({}, Objeto) else Copia = Object.keys(Objeto).map((key) => Objeto[key]); return Copia; } function Empty(Object) { return $.isEmptyObject(Object); } function FiltrarManga(Lista, Nome){ if (Lista.length == 0) return ''; let Manga = []; let CountMax = 0; let Count = 0; let ListaNomes = arrayColumn(Lista, "Name"); ListaNomes = ChangeCase(ListaNomes, toLowerCase); Nome = RemoverCaracteresEspeciais(Nome.toLowerCase()); let NomeArray = Nome.split(' '); NomeArray = CleanArray(NomeArray); let isOrigemDoujinshi = NomeArray.includes('doujinshi'); let SelectedValue = []; let isMatchDoujinshi = false; x = 0; let foundExact = false; ListaNomes.map(function(value){ if(foundExact) return; value = RemoverCaracteresEspeciais(value); if (value == Nome) { Manga = Lista[x]; foundExact = true; return Manga; } Count = GetOcorrencias(value, Nome); if (Count > CountMax) { CountMax = Count; Manga = Lista[x]; SelectedValue = value.split(' '); SelectedValue = CleanArray(SelectedValue); isMatchDoujinshi = SelectedValue.includes('doujinshi'); } x++; }) let NomeArraySize = NomeArray.length; if (((CountMax > NomeArraySize*0.9) && (NomeArraySize + 3 > SelectedValue.length) || (foundExact)) && (isMatchDoujinshi == isOrigemDoujinshi)) { if(Manga != undefined) { if(Manga.length == 0) { Manga = Lista[0]; } } else { Manga = Lista[0]; } } else { return []; } return Manga; } function arrayColumn(array, columnName) { return array.map(value => value[columnName]) } function ChangeCase(Elemento, CaseFunction, Parameters) { switch (typeof(Elemento)) { case 'string': return CaseFunction(Elemento, Parameters); break; case 'object': if(Array.isArray(Elemento)) { return Elemento.map(x => ChangeCase(x, CaseFunction, Parameters)); } else { if(Elemento != null) { let ElementTemp = {}; Object.keys(Elemento).map(function(key){ ElementTemp[key] = ChangeCase(Elemento[key], CaseFunction, Parameters); }) return ElementTemp; } else return null; } break; default: return Elemento; break; } } function RemoverCaracteresEspeciais(texto, subst = ' ') { let pattern = /[^a-z1-9]/gi; return texto.replaceAll(pattern, subst); } function CleanArray(Array) { return Array.filter(x => !$.isEmptyObject(x)); } function GetOcorrencias(Fonte, Busca) { let ArBusca = RemoverCaracteresEspeciais(Busca).toLowerCase().split(' '); ArBusca = CleanArray(ArBusca); Fonte = RemoverCaracteresEspeciais(Fonte).toLowerCase(); let Contagem = 0; ArBusca.map(function(value){ if(Fonte.indexOf(value) != -1) Contagem += 1; }) return Contagem; } function GetAllMangaMatches(Lista, Nome){ let NovaLista = Clone(Lista); let Retorno = {Vazio: ''}; let Mangas = []; let Counter = 0; while (!Empty(Retorno)) { if(Counter > Lista.length) break; Retorno = FiltrarManga(NovaLista, Nome); if(!Empty(Retorno)) { Mangas.push(Retorno); delete(NovaLista[NovaLista.indexOf(Retorno)]); NovaLista = CleanArray(NovaLista); } Counter++; } return Mangas; } function toLowerCase(Texto) { return Texto.toLowerCase(); } function AddScriptByJavascript(src){ script = document.createElement('script'); script.src = src; document.body.appendChild(script); } AddScriptByJavascript("https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.6.0/jquery.min.js"); Ps: I Also add there a code "Importer" to add jquery, because the function from jquery "$.isEmptyObject(Object)" is needed. If wanna me to translate the function/parameters to english, i can do too.
  4. Hi there, for several reasons, I would like to restructure my Server, meaning I would like to rename and / or move paths/folders/directories that are (partly) related to emby’s library. For example, I would like to rename the folder "Media" to "Video" (as I d like to split up audio and video into separate folders). I am supposing, such an action would have an impact on emby’s library, meaning media would no longer be found, etc. But my question is, if I could fix this by just renaming/adjusting paths within the library/libraries or if this would lead to data/media no longer being found or any other impacts such as metadata being lost, etc. In other words: - Can I adjust a media path within a library in emby? (for examle from "/Media/Animation/" to "/Video/Animation/"? - What impact will such an adjustment have? (f.e. Meta-Data and / or Images being replaced, watch-states getting lost, … Thank you in advance for your kind support. Best regards, hi2hello
  5. Preamble: So, I've been a longtime Plex user since before Emby existed, but I've been getting increasingly frustrated with their "improvements" breaking things and find myself checking out the competition. First question: Is there a way for me to enable default subtitles for all of my Chinese Wuxia (Kung Fu) TV Shows and Movies without enabling subtitles for all my English media? Say, a setting on a per-library or per-show basis? If yes, where would I find that? Turning it on for each episode (or changing a user-wide default every time I launch the app) would be an irritatingly tedious set of repetitive steps I would love to skip if possible.
  6. Adding libraries to Emby server is a little different under DSM 7 in that setting permissions for the shared folders has changed some. If you've ever tried to add a library to Emby and it wouldn't accept, then the permissions might be wrong 1. Give emby read/write permissions to the shared folder Open Control Panel...Shared Folder in DSM on your NAS Select your shared folder...Edit... and then under the Permissions tab select the dropdown box and change it to "System internal user" Check Read/Write next to the user 'emby' and then click Save 2. Add libraries in Emby server Settings...Library...New Library Select the library type and enter library folder information Example:

    Question about compilations

    Years ago I used Itunes to rip an album that's a compilation of songs from multiple artists. In Itunes all songs are showing under a single album. In my Emby library, the songs are showing as separate albums and I find that very annoying. I looked in the compilation library and nothing shows up. I'm obviously misunderstanding how this works. Is there a way to have all songs showing under a single album? What am I doing wrong? Thank you.
  8. Hi all Half a year ago, I moved my emby instance from my NAS to a seperate machine (Win10) to get better performance. However, as I'm using emby as a DVR and my library got quite ... ähm ... "comprehensive" by now, I also upgraded my NAS and seperated media server and data storage. I'm using SMP paths in my libraries to add the shared folders to emby (location = \\SERVER\FOLDER1). I had a power outage today and (re-)noticed an odd behaviour of emby: as my media server is a lot faster in booting up as my NAS, accessing the library failed when emby service started. As a result, some of my libraries where just gone from the admin interface and in the remaining ones, nearly all the entries were missing. Restoring my nightly backup did fail as well (I experienced the already known bug with multiple entries after restore) ending up with me deleting all libraries and setting them up again. Yes, one could think that the settings were damaged by the shutdown, but I already experienced the same behaviour when I shut down the NAS and media server in parallel a few month ago. Did you experience something similar in the past? If so, it seems that emby doesn't destinguish between "non accessible" and "non existent" when accessing libraries. It might then be a good idea to catch that error and allow some access retries or even "halt" / "pause" a library that can't be accessed instead of just deleting the entries or even the whole library. If not, it might just be my setup and I would appreciate any tips on how to change it to avoid a repetition of that... Cheers!
  9. It would be nice to be able to specify default options for library creation. I have to add a lot of libraries and on every single library, I have to manually set all the checkbox. This could either be solved by: Globally defined default options for new libraries Template libraries which could be used to clone from

    Movies Missing after Library Setup

    Hi, New Emby user here. My Synology DS218+ directory is called Volume1 Before installing Emby onto the DS218+, I placed several movies into the /Volume1/video directory. Enable Access to all libraries is Checked. Carefully following the instructions on https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/Library-Setup The library creation appears to have succeeded. My chosen display name is EmbyMovies After doing all that, I went to the My media and found 2 directories, one is EmbyMovies and the other is "Folders." Trying both, no movies appeared, All blank I couldn't find a solution at https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/674-media-files-folders-structure/ unless it's well hidden. I searched around Tutorials and Guides, and cannot find anything describing Movies not showing up. Perhaps I made errors in setting up folder structure. Am I supposed to create a "Collections" directory and put the movies in it? If so, how do I do this? Thank you for a great website and I look forward to any enlightenment toward (what appears to be) a directory setup problem. Thanks much, Mongoose
  11. Hi, so what I'm suggesting isn't just the whole WebUI page refreshing when any changes is detected, I'm leaning more toward the Plex approach. Meaning, when scanning your library folders (per show/movie/etc.) you'll get the percentage indicator or a spinning icon signaling that the server is in the middle of the process. The lack of indicators when making changes is resulting in an unawareness of if the action you just performed is in effect or has completed. It's a small but appreciated quality of life addition.
  12. 怎么修改媒体库默认顺序? How to modify the default order of the media library? 当我设置新用户的时候,媒体库顺序是我想要的顺序呢? When I set up a new user, the order of the media library is what I want? 是添加CSS还是修改配置文件? Should I add CSS or modify the configuration file? 图片1是目前默认的媒体库顺序,对于我来说不是很满意,图片2为我手动修改的媒体库顺序。 Picture 1 is the current default order of the media library, which is not very satisfactory to me. Picture 2 is the order of the media library that I manually modified.
  13. After upgrading to Emby Server my music library no longer displays graphics. Every MP3 song of every album in my collection contains an embedded album image. Each folder includes a folder.jpg. I also did a new library scan after the upgrade. So I don't know why the views are all blank now. - How can I fix this or is this a problem of the Emby server release?

    Default Library Images

    I made some default library images for those who like a clean, simple interface. The idea is to put the content in first place. Just in case anyone wants to use them. I used the green from the default Emby theme, the icons are from the google material icon set, style set to rounded, to match the recent Emby style. (Although I do not like that everything needs to be round nowadays). Images are 16:9 / 1920x1080px png-files. Movies: TV: Music: Home Videos: Playlists: All.zip
  15. Queria saber como posso usar um servidor local como pasta / caminho de acesso aos meus arquivos de vídeo para da biblioteca, tentei localizar com uma opção de rede pórem ele não encontrado, e como sugerido tentei colocar o endereço, mas também não consegui localiar. Eu criei esse servidor no meu aparelho android atraves do app termux e utilizei o rclone para compartilhar as minhas pastas no google drive, como não possuo e não pretendo fazer root, não consigo montar o drive na minha pasta raiz, mas consigo compartilhar em uma rede ftp / sftp / http / webdav / dlna local. a ideia seria, acessar esse rede agrupada para criar uma biblioteca no emby, eu até conseguiri montar no app kodi, mas queria poder fazer o mesmo no emby, abaixo segue um exemplo/uma das minhas tentativas de criar uma biblioteca, no caso eu utilizei um servidor http, com endereço http: // localhost: 8080 /.

    Collections have disappeared!

    Ever since the latest updates my Collections have disappeared from My Media. How do I restore them, if possible? Thanks in advance, Bill
  17. Hi, Yesterday Emby started acting very strange. It does not update the library after I manually select "Scan Library Files." Also, it is behaving very strange re: one of my TV series, The Streets of San Francisco. The file structure for that TV series is shown below. When I click on the three dot menu for the folder, as you can see below, there is no option to identify the content. And, when I click on the folder, I see the following: Any idea as to what is going on? I've attached my server log, in case that is helpful. Thanks, I appreciate the help. Bruce embyserver.txt
  18. Here are my library thumbs. Edit: GDrive link to current icon set. More may be added in the future. These are all black and white. Feel free to modify with colors as you so desire. I activate a "Christmas" library during the christmas season, for obvious reasons. I just apply as "Primary" and "Thumb" and they've worked great for me. Blend in nicely with the flat icon style used elsewhere within Emby. And they're attractive across all my devices (Android, iPhone, webUI, and AndroidTV) computerprep library thumbs.zip
  19. Hello, I already have a Movies library for 1080p content however, I would like to add another Movies library for UHD (4K) content. Currently, if I create another Movies library with the title, UHD Movies, each UHD movie that also has an identically titled counterpart in the original Movies library for 1080p content shares the same play status progress and subsequently, 2 thumbnail images are displayed on the homescreen under the Continue Watching heading. One which is linked to the 1080p movie, and another for the UHD movie. Is there any way to disassociate the movie libraries by creating a library content type for us called 4K Movies or UHD Movies that will contain it's own unique play state information? Or, allow us to name our own content type to create the split which we will also then select it's parent content type from the existing list. Many thanks
  20. Hello, running Emby 4.5.4 on a QNAP NAS (installed the QPKG). I do have a large collection of photos.

I deleted and readded the library and no change. ALSO I noticed that the thumbs are recreated on other devices. I scrolled through the folder and thumbs are shown on my MacBook/PC then I moved to a FireTV and the thumbs had to be created again (took a looooong time to see one). In comparison to other folders, which go fast, this is weird. I now moved the cache path from standard to an external one to have faster and better access. Any idea how can help debugging this further? Weirdly I used Jellyfin shortly prior to moving to Emby (dont want to open "wounds" here) and Jellyfin even cannot create thumbs of the images in this folder. With both solutions I can watch them though. But in Emby the server gets busy creating thumbs and the experience degradates while watching this album/folder. I searched the forum and didnt find a solution. Any help - for debugging or fixing it?
  21. Hi, I use one single source containing both Music and Videos files, organized by Music Styles and then Artists. I configured two libraries : One for music, the other for the videos. I want to browse by Folders, as my hard disk is well organized. If I ask Emby to scan one of them, it scans them both at once. After the scan, I can only see content in the Music library and nothing in the Videos library. I already tried with two different sources, one for music and one for videos, and it works, but I need Emby to scan one single source and produce two different libraries with different media. I also tried using a Mixed Content Source, but no result at all. Is it a bug in Emby ? How can I view videos in the same source ? Thanks,
  22. I would like to have the option to view and play the Libraries as they are stored on the server: by Folders. It seems that it would be a great feature. I would prefer to use it. I've made also a similar request for the Android app.

    Library scan hangs

    After the v4 upgrade, my library scan hangs at 88%. After looking at the log, it looks like it does finish sometimes, but it takes 30 minutes to complete. Other times it appears to bomb out and start over. Either way, once it finishes, it starts right back up. Before the upgrade it took less than a minute. All Plugins have been upgraded and the server has been rebooted. I have disabled ipv6 and subtitle downloads per other users questions. I also upgraded to last night and I have the same results. I have attached my server log. EmbyServer.txt
  24. Hello, i just started with Emby Server and added new Music Library with hundreds of songs. They are id tagged with track name, artist, album and genre. When library scan finish, genre and album section in library is empty. Is because genre are not standard like "POP" but personalized "POP1"? But the same happened to "album". Please help Thanks
