    Emby post-processing dvr script for linux

    I thought I'd post my emby post-processing dvr script. Tested and working on Debian Linux 8.9 Files processed end up being named *originalvideoname*.ts.mkv so i can search by that and make sure recordings have no issues. After I look at them, I manually rename to just .mkv. I do not have automatically convert recordings checked or the two preserve boxes checked under live tv --> settings. Script flow: see if lockfile exists. if so wait 60 sec create lockfile commerical scan and commerical cutting ccextractor to pull out closed captions and convert to srt file Encode to h264 using ffmpeg
  2. With the new Emby server release, I see that there are two options for each hardware encoder/decoder now: the existing VA-API one and a new QuickSync one. My Emby Server runs directly in Debian on a Pentium Gold G5420, identified as Coffee Lake (gen9.5). So what's the difference? Which one is preferred, and why? (Technical details welcome.) Is this an "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" case or a "try it and see what works better/faster" deal? TIA
  3. Hi People, I've just got into Emby and the more I use it the more I love it. I'm trying to get the folder permissions right once and for all as at the moment iàm having to run a chmod 770 on the media directory every time I add media which is not handy. I would just like all the contents to inherit the file permissions of the main directory. Now i know this may be more of a LInux OS question but I post it here as I want to make sure Emby server is happy with this level of settings. At the moment I have a Movies folder that belongs to "emby" group and "antonio" (a normal unix user that
  4. Hello everyone Last Friday I restarted my Docker Emby container on Unraid. I lost all my libraries. I had the "Server Configuration Backup" extension, but no restore worked. I was using this Emby package, so I thought that this one had a problem. So I installed a new package at the end of the day. Everything was working until today when I had no cover image on my libraries. I restarted my container, and I lost all my containers. I also tried a restore but nothing worked. Also, it deleted my old Emby log files... However, I found an error in the little log file
  5. Hi, And thanks for this software. Right now I'm running emby server (premiere) on synology app (NAS is a 918+) ; client is installed on a first generation nvidia shield . All is connected via ethernet. Sometimes (rarely to be frank, very rarely) I got stuttering, mainly x or h265 files. I get two months ago a second hand elitedesk G4 mini (UHD Graphics 630) and installed linux (ubuntu 20.04 server) to run some valheim, minecraft and conan exiles servers via docker. And I wonder if using an emby container on this linux computer would improve performances. CPU is way better in t
  6. I am using docker, i have the exact same set up with jellyfin, i just wanted to try emby as they have apps for my lg tv. If i go into my docker containers cli i can see all the films and tv shows, they just don't appear in my movie or tv show library on the emby gui when i have scanned them, the path is exactly the same as my existing jellyfin docker which works without issue.

    Question About My Firefox Installation

    Hello all! I noticed this morning an issue with some movies on Firefox, I can't skip of fast forward them from Chrome on Linux. After some investigation, I noticed that it happens with movies that gets converted to VPX codec by the server. If I watch the movies from the Android app, it works just fine as the server delivers it in h264. It also works just fine with Chrome based browser (as it doesn't use that VPX codec). Here is what I tried: Disabled subtitles Metadata refresh Changed resolution Disabled HTTP/2 & CSP Restarted Emby Server
  8. Hi I have a USB drive containing my music library (mostly mp3) attached to my router, and created a share on the router. I have installed Emby Server on my laptop so I can pick up streams from my TV and other devices, at least that was my hope. In the server web interface I have added the library and it has catalogued all folders and tracks. It will not play anything in the web interface giving me the error On my TV, again I can browse the folder structure but when I try to play a track I get a network error message. On VLC on my phone, I get an error message.

    emby shutting down alone

    I have been using emby on my Linux server for a while now, version 4.6.0.50 is shutting down the emby program alone, it only deactivates it, I don’t know what’s going on previous versions didn’t happen this the server is Linux is is updating
  11. Hi, I am trying to give Emby access to my external drive on Raspbian. I've searched a lot of different things and have used chmod and chown to try and give it permissions, but to no avail. I am a Linux noob so this is somewhat difficult for me. When I try to add a library from the external drive, I go to the directory that has it, but it's blank. Any help?
  12. Hello I've been testing the linux server and while Emby is great it seems to lack some basic functionality that other software has. First off, the Now Playing screen should have a quick hot link in the left pane to avoid navigation confusion. There is lot's of clicking involved in Emby to find things and to get the logical view of things. Navigation UI improvements could be done to streamline the experience. There is no shuffle option on the Now Playing nor is there a randomise order or remove duplicates option for the play queue. It would be useful to be abl
  13. Hello Community, I was hoping someone else is having a similar problem and perhaps know the reason why after the second to last update of Emby, my collections vanished (both user created, and those generated by the box set plugin). At first I thought it had to be ownership/permissions had become muddled, but all other writes are allowed (updates to metadata, metadata refreshes on intervals, favourites) Here is a breakdown of my formerly working setup: Emby running on Docker - app folder in home directory to utilize the SSD benefit. OS: Fedora 33 - kept up to date d

    Emby Won't Start

    Hi guys ! I've just made a little mistake but i don't know what. I tried to make a backup with the plugin but it's always resume with an error so to see what's going on i tried to check logs but my logs wasn't updated 'till a long time so like a genius (lol) i did a "rm -r /var/lib/emby/logs" then "mkdir /var/lib/emby/logs". Big mistake because it removed all my logs cool but won't create logs. I tried to restart emby with "service emby-server restart" but it's resume with an error : ● emby-server.service - Emby Server is a personal media server with apps on just about every
  16. Hello Folks, After the success of getting a count of the current NowPlayingItem entries in the Sessions API, I am now trying to get a list of the Users and what they are currently playing - then send that to my InfluxDB to show in my Grafana server. I am nearly there with this command line, but cannot quite get it so that JQ only shows those session users who are actually playing something... wget -q -O - "http://localhost:8096/emby/Sessions?api_key=3469exxxxxxxxxxxxxxx201ef3f" | jq -M '.[].UserName, .[].NowPlayingItem.Name' will show me the following... null "Paul" "Trace

    Nothing want to start

    Hi ! So this night with no reason, my emby server decided to not transcode movies and all of stuff on it. Here is my log file : https://paste2.org/9cFkEk0p
  18. I wanted to share my fail2ban configuration for people that want to protect against a brute force attack. Fail2ban is a piece of software that will monitor log files for a authentication failures then ban the source ip address after so many attempts to protect against a brute force attack. I searched around for an tutorial or how to on how to implement this for emby and came up short, so I decided to give it a try and got it to work without much trouble at all. I wouldn't consider myself an expert and this is my first how to I have every written so if I made a mistake or I'm wrong let me know,
  19. Preface All of the media I'm testing have previously worked flawlessly in the current environment. Meaning my network topography/speed has not changed. I cannot say for sure when this problem began as I rarely need to use a browser to access my Emby personally, however I had a user report issues a few weeks ago. I gave it very little thought until I had reason to use a browser recently and I ran into problems. Problem Recently (within the last few weeks), Emby playback within my web-browser has begun giving me the following error: Testing I have tested with various browser

    How to speed up Emby on Linux

    Assuming that there is memory to spare, placing Emby's data and/or cache to RAM offers significant advantages. Even though opting for the partial route is an improvement by itself, the latter can make Emby even more responsive compared to its stock configuration. Benefits include, among others: - reduced drive read/writes; - heightened responsive feel; - many operations within Emby, such as quick search are nearly instantaneous. To do so we can make use of a tmpfs. Because data placed therein cannot survive a shutdown, a script responsible for syncing back to drive prior to system shu
  21. Hello When I try to add a path on an external hard disk, it does not appear in the library section, but I can access it through the file browser on the system. attention: I am using raspberry pi OS. thank you.
  22. Inspired by this article on how to host a website using cloudflare and nginx, i intend to do the same for my emby server. Like swynol, i have nginx server and emby server running on the very same machine which i station on my local home network. My OS however is ubuntu instead of windows. Ive tried both swynol's and lukecarrier's github codes, no avail, it wont redirect to the emby server no matter what. My nginx server was indeed running as both ports 80 and 443 are opened as tested by canyouseeme.org. It just wont redirect whenever i go to https://emby.mydomainname.com I dont

  24. Hi All, I have mostly made posts moaning about how stuff doesn't work right/the way I want to, but I'm going to give back to the community today! For the TL;DR skip down a few paragraphs, just me venting my woes I go into how I got hardware acceleration to work when it wasn't and everything said it should have been on an Ubuntu LXC container I originally built a FreeNAS machine, on which I planned to store loads of stuff including media, and saw that it had media player plugins. I didn't think too much of it at the time (except I didn't want to use Plex because my experience with

    Optimizing scanning Library

    Hey guys, Been using emby on Linux for quite some time now. However after a new install on a clean machine, while importing my existing files. I encountered some performance issues. After looking at it it seems the library scanning process only will utilize 1 core at a time. The ffmpeg process that is forked for the chapter images is explicitly started with -threads 1. Is there any option to increase that ? Or is it limited that way due to locking issues ? On current systems it would speed up these processes quite a lot if multiple threads where forked. Even if ffmpeg was only f
