  1. Is there somewhere to host community-made metadata files that you guys are aware of? Like, a website where people can share sets of customized NFO files and images - or partial set, that only selectively override what you would scrape from tvdb/tmdb? I've been customizing a fair bit of mine. Sometimes custom image sets, sometimes a whole folder, or making a series of movies into a "Show", or the like. Sometimes adding metadata to fanedits. I'd be happy to share the metadata with other people as I change my own server. Obviously different people like to organize their collections different ways, like how I don't care to separate films and shows, and prefer to use a "Show" setup for each franchise (each library is a broad genre). If Emby could handle epubs, cbrs/cbz, and PDFs, all my comics and ebooks and RPG Books would be getting loaded into Emby as well. But sadly, Emby does not do book formats - I have yet to find a good Emby-For-Ebooks to run on my media server. A random example - Nobody is going to get this same kind of setup by just using the auto-scraper (though the auto scraper was part of my process. I grabbed as much as possible with it before I started tweaking and organizing). These custom setups were rather un-shareable in Plex, but thanks to nfo files and images in folders, the same cannot be said for my custom setups in Emby. I could zip up the folder and leave out the video files, and womeone else could plug in their own videos and go. Another example: An audiobook trilogy, as part of a broad "Forgotten Realms" audiobook "TV Show" (the main page of which still looks ugly, I just started loading things into this one today). So - have you guys come across a website for sharing community made metadata sets and the like? Are there multiples worth comparing? If yes, which ones do you prefer and why? Thanks guys.

    TV Theme songs

    Any plan to add the tv (and movies as well) theme songs? I have them working on ios and desktop web but not on the apple tv. Currently using the beta version
  3. Was wondering if, like with Plex, you're able to somehow show the animation studio's name instead of the broadcast company that aired it? Like for an instance Madhouse instead of Tokyo-MX.
  4. Is it possible to not display background image generated from selected library on start menu? I have library dedicated to explicit content and I don't want background image generated from that library to be randomly displayed on start menu.
  5. Can I batch change default audio and subtitles language for all episodes in series? If for example Spanish subtitles are default, but I want English subtitles on all episode in the series to be default, can I change that? The same goes with audio track. If I can't do that, It would be a really useful feature.
  6. It would be a nice for Emby as a whole. So people could develop more for it making it more feature rich and more appealing to for people to get interstate from the competition
  7. I've been waiting for this feature for a while now. I'm hopeful that it will improve video quality. and a setting for audio encoding preference would be very nice as well

    Weird Chromecast freezing

    Like the title says, videos load fine on my android phone. But when casted it plays for 1-2 seconds, then the screen freezes but audio continues to play. Even fast forwarding the same issue arises. Is there any solution to this?
  9. So 2020 has come to a close and Plex has issued a year review which you can read here. Jellyfin released their 10.7.0 rc1 (changelog here) which includes synchronized playback for music and overall polish to their web app. Also HDR tonemapping while transcode. Both plex and Jellyfin has third party clients (mpv-shim) that works wonderful on desktop (specially Linux). I am trying to think what is the best feature that Emby released in 2020 ? Downloading subtitle when playing something ? Some polish to android tv app? A new version of android app? I think there has been no feature where Emby implemented it first. HDR tonemapping was on Jellyfin first, Skip Intro was on plex first. Am I missing something?
  10. I host both the subbed version and dubbed versions of anime. These are setup as 2 separate libraries. One under a folder called Anime Subbed and the other under Anime Dubbed. When I watch an anime that is both dubbed and subbed at this time I do not see a while to differentiate between the 2 versions besides playing the file. I added dubbed to the end of every folder that has the dubbed anime as well as added [Subbed] and [Dubbed] to the end of each mkv file to see if this would make any difference. Is there anything that can be done to resolve this? I know I could possible use the metadata manager and add Dubbed and Subbed to the end of every show. If that is the option is there an easier way I can mass update the entire library maybe through the database?
  11. Hello everyone! 👋 I'm thinking in build a media server using emby, I wan't to have the lowest energy cost so I could leave it on all the time. MVP Idea My idea is to use a RPi 4 with 8GB of ram but I have seen in the forum that it has some decoding and encoding problems but I really don't know what that means in this context, I know the file should be encoded to be playable but my videos are already playable so I don't know why emby needs to encode them again. Also I have found this thread that says the raspberry pi could use hardware encoding and this reddit post that says the same but with a lot more steps. Future of the idea (could ignore) Also I'm thinking of use this server as a personal cloud using owncloud so I could have my media and another files on demand. I want to "stream" comics (cbr/cbz) from my server to an android app. Software Installation Install Open Media Vault or Raspibian Install Emby server on it using the Debian package The hardware I'm planing to buy Raspberry Py 4 8GB HDD Dock station The RPi could be changed for a mini PC but I'll really love to use a PI over a PC because of the cost it's less than half and the energy consumption. AWOW Mini PC Celeron 1.2 - 2.2 GHz 4 core 6GB ram 128 ssd Intel HD Graphics 500 Beelink U57 Core i5 2.7 - 3.1 GHz 2 core 8 ram 128 ssd Intel Iris Graphics 6100 My personal context: I have used Kodi for a long time and know how to manage my library. - all my video files are MKV (720p and 1080p) and most with included subtitles and dual audio, the rest have STR files. - near 3TB of multimedia + 100GB of comics files. I have an emby server running in a Linux Machine with the files previous mentioned. - Use kodi in the same machine - Use roku stick on the bedroom I'm a linux used so I'm not scared of some commands or use the terminal if needed I don't care about 4K or +60 FPS because I don't have a TV with that capabilities and don't think in buy one in a couple of years.
  12. I am a amateur DJ who likes to record mixes during their free time in quarantine. I have decided to attempt migrating my mixes into my emby media server. I am having trouble with actually adding the mixes. I thought that adding them as an Audio Book is the best option, as it allows remembered playback position. After tagging each MP3 File as "Artist - GameGrime", "Title - Grime### - XX" and "Album - Grime Sessions" when attempting to add the folder into the server, nothing happens. They are tagged with ID3 tags and even when attempting to add these mp3 files as songs it will not work. I took a look at the file naming structure for both Music and Audiobook and it seems like I am doing it fine. Basically i have all the episode files beside each other in a Directory. I CAN play the files from the Folder view in the audio books, but the metadata, music, and playback position is not recognized. If you are able to assist me with what I should attempt doing to have the files recognized let me know.
  13. Hi. The question is on the title, i look into the forum and can't find anything... sorry if it is in another post. "Is there a way to show more of 100 items (the complete library) in the WebUI?" I mean in ONE page I ask because my libraries are made by categories according my needs. Example Action-Thriller, Action Violence, Romance, Drama,, Animation, etc. (I just have movies at this moment) But I have more than 100 items for each one and is not handy when i'm working in the cover arts in the second page Thanks in advance.

  14. Hello! I just have a question about updating my Synology NAS and if it is safe to update it to the new DSM 6.2.2-24922 update 2 with my Emby Server running on it. The DSM update was just released https://www.synology.com/en-us/releaseNote/DS918+ on the 4th of July. The only reason why I ask this is because I've updated, restarted, and shutdown my NAS is the past, and I've often gotten times where I could not run Emby after the update, restart, or shutdown was complete, but I don't know if it could have done something with this https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/73984-emby-on-synology-ds918-won’t-run-after-restart-shutdown/ that I posted a little while ago and solved the issue on. So, since my NAS just received the update as of today, despite it being released on the 4th of July, I have yet to download and install it because I want to know if it is safe to do so for Emby and my NAS so that I don't have the same problem like I did before in the past from the second link I shared above. Plus, what to do (precautions) before I download and install the update on my NAS for the Emby Server. Anything would be appreciated. Thanks!
  15. Hi, In Settings there is a section named "Advanced" or "Hosting". This is the mine: And this is a section of my Dashboard: The server is running in local http port (8096), there is no option to enable https in local. Nor, in my opinion, does it make sense to activate https on local connections. My question is: does the "Local https port number" option make any sense? ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- And another question is about remote access. I have disabled this option, why the Dasboard shows "Remote (WAN) access" if it's inactive? This leads to confusion when remote access is not activated.
  16. I just started migrating over to Emby after Plex ruined the Roku app. After adding some of my libraries I noticed on the Emby home screen (dashboard) It created these really nice icons with images from the poster art. The problem is it didn't do that for all of the libraries (Anime is missing that). I attached a picture to show what I mean, is there a manual way to add that? I have a lot of libraries to add still I would love to know if I can add that to all the libraries.

    Can you control DVR on Roku?

    I don't know if this is the right place to ask, but can you control the DVR from the Roku? From the downloads page, the Roku doesn't seem to be able to, but I wanted to be 100% sure. If it doesn't, is this something that is planned for the future? I'm trying to cut the cord, and I currently have a Roku to access my media library. This is important for me to know, as I might have to buy new hardware to be able to control such features.

    Concurrent Streamers Question

    Hello, i have the 45 device subscription and was wondering if that would support 45 concurrent connections/streams? and if i upped the subscription if that would also support lets say 250. Thank you!
  19. I would occasionally (perhaps ever few months?) like to bump some of my feature request threads so that more people will see them (since not everyone uses the Search function, and since users voting/liking feature requests increases the possibility of them being implemented eventually). But I don't wish to be obnoxious. Do any of you who have been on this forum for a while (eg, a year or more) have opinions you could share regarding this (eg, is bumping frowned up in this forum, or if not, what's a general frequency that seems acceptable here)? Thanks!
  20. Hi Guys, I recently picked up a Amazon FireTV Stick, which is great but wish I had something better. Its wifi only, I got it connect to my Asus RT-n66u router (Full Signal) and I have issues with playback sometimes stops and I have to start it again does it alot more on youtube app then emby app though. I have most of the time watch emby with no pausing and but youtube it does it atleast once, Its done it 5 seconds on to youtube. I've tried 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz. The interface isn't the fastest either, quite sluggish even if you just using it for Prime TV. I wondering what Android TV box is best. I have seen the cheap quad core things but they never as good as you think, poor android builds(not optimized). The Nvidia Shield quite nice but expensive as you have to buy a controller as well as the unit. What do you guys recommend?

    Roku Question

    Forgive me if this has been covered already. I know nothing at all about the Roku. I've always used a PC for our media. I am considering purchasing a Roku though, after reading all the praise here about the beta app, to make it easier for my wife and kids. The question I have is; will it play all of my video formats? I have almost everything. MKV's, mp4's avi's and primarily, Video_TS folder as well as straight folder rips of Blurays. I don't want to invest the money just to find out that half of my movies won't work! Also, do you guys find it easier to operate than a PC? thanks!

    Nested Folders

    I would like to create a folder in my primary movie folder for my comic book adaptation movies. For example, \Movies\Marvel\The X-Men Collection [boxSet]. I didn't really want to set it up as a genre and I want to maintain the boxset integrity of the movies in the folder. Is this possible? I have similar folders already (like for my Jack Ryan movies), but they don't have any boxset's in them. They are set up as boxsets. thanks!
