    password issue

    Hi I have had to start using Emby. It is installed and ran well yesterday, was able to get in with my DSM pwd and configure on browser. App is also installed on Roku. All was well yesterday. Today, I try to open it on browser and I get a message saying pwd is incorrect. This is inaccurate as I can log in to my NAS. On Roku, the server is working. I try to ssh into my NAS and see if I can't reset emby password, but the few instructions on the web/emby community is not clear. now I have deleted various files including the Embyserver via SSH and am no longer able to reinstall at all. (I did manage to reinstall) but the password issue is persisting. can someone send me step by step instructions for this? I am reasonably comfortable with Linux..
  2. Hello, I am paying for a subscription and cant use the service. I have not used the emby server for some time do to renovations and forgot my password. Strangely, the password I saved inmy password manager does not work. Now when I want to reset the password the txt-file is created on my server as seen and put on a server location. But I have no clue how to find this location! I cannot find any help. Everyone is only explaining either how to get this process going or then what to do with the file. Please help me find this file on my snology server or I will cancel and delete the software. Thanks, Kash

    Admin password recovery

    I have somehow managed to screw up the admin password. The server is a headless box, stowed away in a corner. I have transferred the database to run the corruption check but it came out as OK. How can I reset password for "admin" I tried using the "Forget password" option but it keeps tell me to try again within your home network. I am in the home network and I even connected my laptop with Ethernet cord to the router directly. Sadly no joy there. Just wanted to reset admin and get on with the show. Any help would be appreciated. License is premium.
  4. Hey I am hoping someone can help me, I cannot connect remotely to my server using by connect. It tells me the user name or password is wrong. User name and password work fine when logging into forums Have done a password reset through the emby connect Web browser and application, even after fresh reset I still cannot log into Emby Connect. I don't know what to do?

    Emby admin password forgot

    Hi team, I setup password for my admin user login. but when try i login, it didn't accept my passwrord. Hence tried to reset password i got a promt to check for the following location "/var/packages/EmbyServer/target/var/passwordreset.txt". I got the below detail I can see the below detail in the txt file ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- http://localhost:8096/web/forgotpasswordpin.html Enter the following pin code: 7960 The pin code will expire at 31 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- But i remember my Pin, need to reset only password. If i remember correctly i can use the pin to login when i'm inside network but required password if i'm trying to access emby out of the network.Please advise. Thank you.
  6. I have an Ubuntu server running the emby server docker container. Just spun it up yesterday. My password worked no problem. Today, I tried to log in through firefox on another linux machine, and my password doesn't seem to be working. So I decided to try resetting my admin/user account password by clicking the "Forgot Password" button. When I clicked the button, it prompts me for a username. When I type the username and then hit "Submit", nothing at all seems to happen. What can I do to troubleshoot this further so I can get access to my media server again?

    Shares with passwords

    I am new to Emby and I have been using plex for a year now. Why can't Emby see my mapped network drive on my server? When will Emby let you add a network drive with a password? I have looked around and it seams this question has been asked a lot over time.
  8. Hallo zusammen, ich habe auf meinem FireTV 4k die Emby App. Da ich Kinder habe möchte ich nicht das die meinem Account nutzen können. Daher gehe ich in der APP immer auf "ausloggen"! Scheinbar bringt das aber nichts, starte ich die App meldet er sich automatisch mit meinem Profil an ohne das man auch nur ein PW eingeben müsste. Woran kann das liegen? gruß
  9. Hi Everyone, I forgot the password to my admin-level account on my Emby Server (not Windows, but the actual Emby Server app itself). When I choose "Forgot Password", I enter the name of my account, and am presented with "Please contact your system admin to reset your password". Any way around this, or do I need to uninstall Emby and re-install from scratch?
  10. Hi, I have just install the Microsoft Store app, and can not sign in using emby.media/pin. I get the error Invalid username or password even though both are correct, and can sign in to Apple TV app and web app, as well as from my organizr dashboard.

  12. Hello, I would like to be able to create a xxx section in emby that would ask for a password to read the content or even more, to be able to open the file before seeing the images of xxx movies
  13. Morning, I have three users setup on my Emby server (Debian). Two are humans who need to log in or they cannot gain access. The third is a ghost account to allow DLNA access on my LAN. My problem is that although I've setup the DLNA user with a password, if I use a mobile connection to my server web interface to simulate WAN access, I can enter only the username and login without a password. This is potentially a major security hole. I've checked the settings against the human users and they are identical, plus I've restarted the server just in case something didn't take. To troubleshoot, I created a fourth user identical to one of the humans, but without a password. As expected, a remote connection can login with just the username. I then set a password and you can still login without a password. It's as if the password is ignored. Any ideas? Thanks
  14. Hello and new I installed emby on my open media vault nas was working good now when I try to log into emby server on NAS or log into app on phone or TV , system says invalid username or password , if I try to change password under forget password nothing happens can anyone help

    Forgot Password Issue

    @@cayars Using version on Windows 10. I thought I knew the password, but I haven't used it in a while since it has always just recognized me. So when I try the password remotely, it doesn't work. When I clicked the "Forgot password," it prompted me for user name which I entered. It then told me to do it on the local server. I tried from local server, and it told me to open the file saved in the appdata folder. I open the text file. I go to the URL. It prompts me for PIN. I enter the PIN. It says Passwords have been removed for the following users. To login, sign in with a blank password. It doesn't say which following users. But I click on the "Got it" and takes me to login. I try to log in using nothing as the password and it says "Invalid username or password. Please try again." I've tried several times and the process is always the same. What am I missing?

    Password access

    I would like to see a setting for adding a password for server access. Like on Netflix, you have to give a username and password for access. Password for individual users should be optional. I can't see this should be a big deal to implement. Settings for this access should not be connected to the forum account. Simply create a user/password in the server interface.
  19. I'm going to attach pictures but Enmby android TV clients fails to remember password and it seriouly annoy and certainly takes away from the user experience. Who the hell wants to keep having to login on a remote with no qwerty all the time. So unless the account is deleted or disable the client needs to remember the login forever and until the end of time, right now it only remembers for about a day I don't know what the trigers are that pushes it to stop remember but this issue is 100 percent reproducible as a friend of mine with same equipment is having same issue as well. other than what i provide don't ask for any further information as I have other things to do and don't have time to do any follow ups. Just test and fix on your own.

    Unable to reset Emby.media account

    I am unable to reset the password to my emby.media account. Further, my emby server stalls with the activity circle spinning and spinning when I click on "Profile". I found myself unable to login and the password reset email never arrives. I don't know if I misspelled my email address during account creation. It's doubtful but not impossible. user: sovereignman email: sovereignman@tutanota.com Please advise.
  21. Hello all, Just wondering if there is any current functionality (can't find any, but I might not be looking hard enough) or plans for any future functionality to be able to whitelist an IP prefix for passwordless auth? Want to make dad's life slightly easier so he doesn't have to enter passwords in on each of his Fire TV sticks! Look forward to hearing back! Cheers, Jack :-)
  22. Hi, I use emby on my AppleTV (4th Gen). Now I would like to protect emby from being started without a password. The problem is this: Unless I manually log off before closing the app, it can be started without having to enter the password for the last used user account. It automatically starts with the user account that was used last. On iOS, it is different. There I can uncheck the "Remember" box and then I always have to enter the password again whenever I re-start emby. This is what I want on my AppleTV, too. So, how can I password protect the start of emby on AppleTV without having to log off every time before closing the app? P.S.: It seems like when I wait long enough, the app auto-closes or auto-logs off in the background and then I have to re-enter the password. But this doesn't happen immediately as I would like it to.
  23. Hi, I've been trying, and failing, to change the password of a user on my server via my admin account. As far as I know this should be possible, but every time I try it ssays that the username/password is wrong. I assume this means the "old password", but it is not a reasonable assumption that I should know the password of other users when they can set these up themselves, also it does not work with my passsword, I've checked.

    Profile Login with iPhone

    Hello emby team, Since iOS 11 it is now possible to provide keyboard input for your Apple TV with your phone or tablet. This is an awesome feature for logging on to Emby for password protected profiles. There is however one little snag, once the password has been entered it is not possible to press the enter key to trigger the login. You have to manually move the cursor to the login button and press it. Is this a limitation of the Apple UI or would it be possible to implement this function in the Emby app? Thank you!
  25. Yes I'm the admin but the issue is that I can create users but I can't create the password in the Admin dashboard on local machine/server. So rather than trying to explain is easier for both of us just to view a screenshare. So here' the link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=11Rk9o4u_CMAw06ZKv00cRBHD3xVJepzz
