So, I know Emby already has some multi-user settings and such, but one that would be useful to me is in the arena of recordings. I have multiple people who record shows in the house and for the most part, I don't care to see their recordings and they don't care to see mine. I would like to see an option to have recordings be user aware. For example... User one records "The Big Bang Theory" User two records "The Cool Kids" Users one and two both record "New Amsterdam" User One would see "The Big Bang Theory" and "New Amsterdam", but not "The Cool Kids". User Two would see "The Cool Kids" and "New Amsterdam", but not "The Big Bang Theory". "New Amsterdam" would only be recorded once using one tuner as the system would recognize them as the same. Now, User One watches "New Amsterdam" and then deletes it. They would no longer see it, but the file would remain on disk and would remain in User Two's list of recorded shows. User Two watches it, then deletes it. Now it is gone from both users recorded show lists, and because there are no references to the file on disk, it is now deleted as well. I'm sure this adds complexity to managing recordings and conflicts, but I think it would be useful.
Hi, Emby is really fantastic (and that’s why I decided 2 weeks ago to buy a Premiere license to support the team), but in my opinion, Audio Playlist management could/should be greatly improved. But maybe that as a newbie, I missed something or my audio management strategy is inadequate : to avoid file duplication, I save only one copy of a song in my mp3 folder and use Playlists to “virtually” define Albums and Compilations (~500 Playlists currently). Thus, to manage my music collection within Emby, I needed first a tool to import my m3u playlists. A java app has been proposed by another forum member, but it only imports one m3u at a time. Thus, I decided to write a small software in Access 2016 VBA (Sorry, I'm don’t manage other programming languages and some databases functionality were required to deal with multiple users). The Access software and a short guide are attached. Please be understanding and not too critical, I’m not an expert ! The software was tested on 2 different computers running windows 8 or 10. It’s provided as is and I can’t ensure that it will run on all configurations… Hope this could help others... Regards. m3u Playlist4Emby V0.zip
