    emby random buffer with rclone

    hello, ive been using emby for 2 months now with no problems but suddenly now i am getting these random buffers everyday and the only way to fix it is to reboot my whole server. i play any random video in the library, it starts playing normally but then it stops to buffer after maybe 10 seconds or less, after it stops at that first point it then plays and stops every 1 or 2 seconds to buffer. its like not even eating up bandwidth of the person watching the video to buffer the video i am hosting the emby server on my server which is on debian 10, has 32gb ram, i7 4770, 117MB/s download speed and 117MB/s upload speed, 4TB enterprise HDD. im using rclone mount with gdrive. i have tried restarting the mount service, restarting emby server, increasing cache size, decreasing cache age, adding buffer size. nothing i tried seems to work except rebooting my whole server once a day. my friends are other users in the same server and we tested and they encountered the problem too. i tried this mount configuration #!/bin/bash fusermount -uz /home/nitrous/embystuff rclone mount "embystuff:" "/home/nitrous/embystuff" --allow-other --poll-interval 5m --cache-dir=/home/nitrous/cache/embystuff --vfs-cache-mode full --vfs-cache-max-size 400G --vfs-cache-max-age 18h -vP and this mount configuration #!/bin/bash fusermount -uz /home/nitrous/embystuff rclone mount "embystuff:" "/home/nitrous/embystuff" --allow-other --poll-interval 5m --cache-dir=/home/nitrous/cache/embystuff --vfs-cache-mode full --vfs-cache-max-size 200G --vfs-cache-max-age 72h -vP i tried hosting on ubuntu and debian. tried rclone version 1.54.1, 1.55, 1.56... problem still happened. i have also changed my whole server where i host emby but I still encounter the same problem on the new one. the buffering usually happens after 24 hours, sometimes more, sometimes less, doesnt matter if its direct play or transcoding. it was working perfectly for the past 2 months until a few days ago when this happened. if the buffering happens the only fix i found was to reboot my whole server, would really appreciate any help.
  2. I have set up my server on ubuntu, with Google Drive mounted on it via rclone. Not running any rclone cache or encryption etc. I have install Emby 1.076 on my Samsung UA55JU6600 TV I am able to play my movies and tv shows just fine. However, I am unable to resume after a video have been played, or even fast forward the video via the 30-seconds button. I am able to resume and fast forward while viewing in Chrome. Not sure how to go about diagnosing the problem, or what logs I should be providing. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.
  3. Hello, I have movies on my Google Drive. Now I would like to integrate this directly into Emby without loading it locally onto my device. I have mounted google drive on my Ubuntu 20.04 server via rclone. But if I want to create a new media folder, then I cannot select the folder where I mounted Google Drive. does anyone have experience with this and can help me? thanks!

    Emby & Google Drive

    Hello, I would like to express 2 problems that I encounter with Emby using Google Drive as storage. The first problem encountered is that emby seems to send a lot of requests or consume a lot of data, because I easily reach the quota in recent days. My 2nd problem is that by closing rclone after a certain time some of my libraries no longer display its content due to the fact that rclone is closed and the content is no longer accessible. I am concerned that reloading data once rclone reconnect requests a lot of data. I would like to understand then which options I should select when creating a library to avoid these 2 problems. Thank you
  5. Hello, I have the same problem but in my case only tv shows don't resume. I can play movies when resume. Few days ago everything was OK. I try to watch series about 21:00 today. That are my logs in attachment. Regards, Przmek @Happy2Play please move my posting to it's own separate topic. Thanks. embyserver.txt ffmpeg-remux-7b08a2a5-7987-4249-9d70-d320b413ca67_1.txt ffmpeg-transcode-31ff9695-7a72-42e2-a441-35ca0b67ef26_1graph.txt hardware_detection-63748475758.txt
  6. I'm experimenting with the addition of Google Drive, mounted via rclone. I don't have any problems there, as far as accessing. But when I add the new path, it seems like emby is going to run an ffprobe/ffmpeg analysis (I see both processes running, which seems odd but that's a separate thing). Anyway, people that are doing this, did you just let it do it? Otherwise, what settings are you using to minimize that. It's going to be pretty obnoxious if Emby is going to want to deep scan every file on the path like that (as it means I'll effectively pull everything back down as it gets put in gdrive). tldr; what settings to use minimize Emby processing of new files that are on remote storage?
  7. I have hosted my emby server on a vps and using rclone mount as my library . I am currently renaming and sorting all my content . Just had this very simple question I currently have 2 choices Either i can scrap all metadata directly in my google drive using tiny media manager or other tools and don't let emby fetch any metadata. So each TV show & Movie will have its own nfo , posters and everything in its respective drive folder itself . In short emby would read metadata individually for each folder The other option is i can not scrap any metadata externally . Just rename them properly following emby naming convention using any tool and while adding that library , let emby fetch all the metadata for it ( which i beleive it stores locally in /var/lib/emby/metadata ) So my main question is which option do you recommend me ? What would give better performance and quicker loading of metadata ? ( Locally or mounted drive ) On another note - Assuming i have metadata in my source itself , is there any option to ignore the metadata in source library - google drive ie the ones within individual movies and tv shows folder and force use the emby metadata fetched by emby itself ?
  8. Hi all, I have a GSuite account which I use RClone to upload my files to. I have mounted a new drive on my laptop (X:) and am able to upload video files with no issues. However, there is an issue when uploading folders containing both video and photo files (.jpeg). where they are not showing up. Here are the steps I took to upload these folders into Gdrive: 1) Using RClone Browser, Upload "Pictures" folder into GSuite Drive 2) In Emby,select "Home videos and Photos" and point it to the mounted drive (X:\) 3) Scanned and refresh meta data 4) No photos nor video files appear Strangely, when I upload the same folder directly from my desktop, meaning upload the files from my laptop path (C:\Me\Pictures), all photos and videos appear with no issues. I have checked all permissions, there were no hidden folders nor photos that were private that could have caused this (referencing the other photos error thread). Separately, on Plex, doing the Rclone+Gdrive setup did not any issues at all. Your advice is muchly appreciated! Pic1 = Folder uploaded and synced to emby directly from C:\Me\Pictures shows all items appearing Pic2 = Folder uploaded and synced to emby through RClone shows nothing

    Currently I am using the below rclone mount command with emby but from when I click play it takes around 50 seconds to start playing the video. This is around the same amount of time it would take for it to download the buffer specified in the command. I am wondering whether the buffer command works with emby? I was under the impression it downloads the buffer once it has started streaming. rclone mount --allow-other --bind 2a01:xxxx:1:fd0d::4 --log-file /opt/rclone/logs/xxxxlog -v --dir-cache-time 96h --vfs-cache-max-age 12h --vfs-read-chunk-size 128M --buffer-size 3G --timeout 1h gdrive4: /gdrives/GD_4 --user-agent='Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/74.0.3729.131 Safari/537.36': &

    Path could not be found

    Hi all, I just installed emby server on my linux vps. I want to have my emby libraries on a different server however, specifically a onedrive server. Don't worry, I have that all sorted out, using rclone and a cache. It works like a charm. However, the folder currently is in the root directory, under the name of /onedrive owned by a user and group called qbtuser (from qbittorrent) so it can write nicely to it. Now I need to assign the emby libraries to somewhere like /onedrive/movies and /onedrive/series. However when I try to add a library in emby server and specify the folder, /onedrive is not found. /onedrive is owned by user and group qbtuser, and the directories and files inside are given the permissions of 775. The folder /onedrive itself also has permissions 775. Now, not only does that mean that everyone should be able to read and see what is in every folder, but the first problem arose when the root user tried to read from the /onedrive folder, and they are not allowed to.. Now also emby is not allowed to read or anything. There is a group qbtuser as mentioned before and I have added emby to that, and even rebooted the server, but it still does not work. I am out of ideas. Anyone else got any ideas?
  11. Hi, somehow I'm currently fighting with the problem, that after mounting my GDrive to the vServer the media library will break down after the library scan. When trying to open a media file you get the typical error message "Too many errors. Giving up". If I try to look for the mounted folder on my vServer I get to notice that I can't open it anymore. "-bash: cd: seb_emby: Transport endpoint is not connected" is the message. Actually I can't do anything with those folders anymore. When I try to delete them it gets rejected "rmdir: failed to remove ‘seb_emby’: Device or resource busy" I got two seperat mounts running. The weird thing is that only one of them is always crashing. The other one works fluently. Concerning this, neither the Google API or the Emby Update to 4.3.1 could be the fault. The media library scan seems also to go quite slower since it stays on 90,9% for quite long, when I try to mount everything in a new folder etc. I did install the Anime addon (1.4.3) and auto box sets (1.2.3) one day earlier, so I guess that this might have something to do with it. The crashing mount contains one library with anime series and one with anime movies. In both libraries I did a recent change in the settings, by setting the metadata format to nfo and saving picture material in the media source folder. (Was this a good choice btw.? What is the advantage of the nfo file in comparison with when the box is unticked?) Pfa the embyserver.txt. (Splitted in two files since it was too big, had ~100mb) Thank you for helping me solve this case in advance. If you need any additional information just mention it. Best Regards
  12. Hi All, Firstly, thank you for any help you are able to provide. I've been trying to get this working for 4 days and it's driving me crazy. I'm new to Linux so please bear with me. I have a AWS instance running Ubuntu 18 and a virtual Google Drive mounted to /gdrive using rclone which works fine. I can navigate through the files in the /gdrive folder using the Linux terminal as expected, great. The issue I'm facing is when I navigate to http://localhost:8096 and chose the "Add media library" option, it cannot see the folder /gdrive. If I then un-mount my google drive from the gdrive folder, emby library can now see the folder and adds it to the library. So in a nutshell, emby can't see the folder /gdrive when rclone is mounted inside it. I have used the following commands to ensure the folder is readable by everyone, and changed to owner to the emby user, but still no luck. chown -R emby:emby /gdrive chown emby /gdrive chmod 777 /gdrive ls -la shows the following drwxrwxrwx 2 emby emby 4096 Dec 6 15:42 gdrive. It must be a permission issue, but I can't think what it could be. If anyone could help, I would be so grateful. Thanks, Kelvin

    Quick question! Historically, I've always saved my metadata/nfo/artwork with my media files. More recently I have been experimenting with uploading my content to Google Drive through rclone. My question is, if it would be a good idea to continue saving the metadata with the media files (in this case Google Drive), or if it would be faster Emby experience if it was saved locally on the machine (in this case Nvidia Shield). The main reason I was thinking of saving it on Google Drive was because I will most likely have to update my media files as I expand my collection. For example, if I currently have a 1080p file and eventually purchase and upload the 2160p version, I will need to rename the files and metadata files as well as create folders for my content. My primary concern was internet speeds. My download speed is restricted 100mbps and even we are the only users, I wasn't sure if that would be fast enough to quickly load all the images on the front-end Emby app. Whereas if I were to save it locally on the server (Nvidia Shield), I would assume it would be very quick. I will be experimenting with this in most likely a month, but I wanted to get your experiences in the meantime.
  14. Hi, I have a Team Drive and configured on rclone with encryption. I had to create 2 drives and mount for both Movies and TV Shows. Because i couldn't manage to mount the each folder on Emby Server. It showed the encrypted ones so when i select them it couldn't read. How can i do that with one encrypted drive mounted and 2 folders mounted on Emby Server?
  15. I'm basically just wondering if you could use rclone cache with emby, if so please help me out.

    Rclone Setup

    So i'm using this to sync everything because i'm locked in to slow internet connection where i live. They don't offer high speed connections because i live in a crappy area,and using sync with Emby takes forever. But problem is i'm not command line smart and wonder if somebody could help me Setup Rclone and get it working right. Appreciate any tutorials or info you could provide would be appreciated,thanks.
