MrTechnic posted a topic in General/WindowsI recently rebuilt the PC I have that runs my Emby Server. I used the Server Configuration Backup plugin to backup and restore my configuration and I also have enabled writing of the Play States into the NFO files for each Library. When I reinstalled Emby Server and selected a restore from backup all the server setting and some of the Library information was restored. What was missing was the Play States for Libraries whose Content Type is "Home videos & photos". The Play States for Libraries that are "TV Shows" and "Movies" restored perfectly. After that decided I wanted to change each Libraries sourced folder from being a locally mapped folder to being a network share reference. Once again Libraries whose Content Type is "TV Shows" and "Movies" retained their Play State and Libraries whose Content Type is "Home videos & photos" lost their Play States. This despite the Play State being accurately stored in the NFO files - the first Scan Media Library event just goes and rewrites the NFO files. So my question is: How can I backup Play States for Libraries whose Content Type is "Home videos & photos"? Ideally this should be part of the Server Configuration Backup plugin but it clearly either isn't or doesn't work.
My setup is this: Emby Server Version 3.0.5786.0 running on FreeNAS within a Plugins jailMedia is stored on NAS and shared with CIFS and path substitution so there is no need for transcoding (this works great) Clients:Both clients are running Version 3.0.298.0 Client computers are Core i3 2120, 4GB ram, SSD OS drive Networking is hardwired GigE Windows 7 Pro SP1 Chocolate theme using legacy folder browsing The issue that I am having is that when I watch an episode on client 1, its play state is not updated on client 2 unless I exit and reload Emby on client 2. The server is properly tracking the play state (can see all the info on the server information page) and the web and IOS app's play states are immediately updated. This has been an issue for me for a while (months) but I can deal with re-loading Emby if I have to. But, since I had a bit of time today, I thought I would ask on the forum if anyone else has this issue and if there is a possible solution. If there are any logs etc. that would help sort this out, please let me know and I will attach them to the post. Thanks again for a great application! Cheers,
Hi there, I think this may be useful for families and the like. My housemate and I watch series together but sometimes she is away or busy, so I carry on without her, and vice versa. It would be really useful if we could create a group profile, called "house" for instance. This would then be linked to our individual profiles, so when we watched together as this "user" both our individual account's play states would be updated. If I then wanted to continue alone I would use my personal profile which would not update hers or "house". So this would be a one way sync from house to each user on said group. Even better would be a two way sync but with a "resume from user_x or user_y" option. I doubt this is a hugely necessary feature but it would be nice.
