  1. My Emby server is Version 4.2.1.0 on a Mac Mini. I keep Emby player open on the Mac Mini and remote control the player using the player app from various other devices -- my Android phone, and Android tablet, my Macbook, my wife's PC laptop. About once a week or so, when I click the "Play On" icon on a remote player, nothing shows in the list of available players to control. It just says "Play On" with nothing below it. If this happens on, for example, my phone, I'll go to my MacBook and try from there but get the same result. In other words, it affects all players on all devices when it happens. Library content from the server is still visible and playable locally on that device. The way I've found to "fix" it is to VNC into the Mac Mini (it's headless) and change the focus of the active apps -- if Emby player is the front-most active window, I'll click on the desktop to make the Finder active, then click Emby to make it active again. If Emby isn't the front-most window, I'll bring it to the front. Basically any change to the focus of Emby player on the server fixes it. Thoughts? thanks

    Suddenly cannot connect remotely?

    I have had my server running perfectly for about 3 months now, able to connect anywhere in the world and from any device via my domain name emby.XXXX.com on port 8096. However, today I went to connect remotely and was met with Connection Failure messages from all devices. I checked my network settings and the Dashboard shows that everything is still looking correct on the server side. What I've tried: Removing my custom domain, and connecting directly to my public IP address Changing the port # Checking to make sure the port is visible from out yonder (it is) Confirming that my domain has an A Record entry point at my emby server Restarting Emby Restarting Windows Tried on 4 different devices, 1 from a different state Connecting to my local IP address from on my own network (doesn't connect) If on the Dashboard I click the "LAN" link, it'll open Emby in Chrome. If I click the "WAN" remote link, it opens to a could not connect page. The only way to connect to my server is from the PC running it, or from it auto detecting on in-network devices. Thoughts?

    Remote Connection Help

    I am in need of some help. I have tried to get my remote connection going with no luck. I have port forwarded, turned off all firewalls, dmz my computer and still no luck. I do have a isp modem/router connected before my router but I have that setup in passthrough mode. I am not really sure to go from here. I did have the server worked but recently moved it onto a new pc. Thanks ahead of time.

    Setting Up EMBY App With Harmony Elite Remote

    Can anyone help me figure this out? I want to open the EMBY app installed on my TCL Roku TV as an activity when I turn it on and open the EMBY app seconds after the TV turns on so I wont have to!! lol
  5. I have an Emby server (4.4.2.0) running on macOS Catalina. I have several users defined in the server. The server is accessible within my home network (via HTTP) and over the Internet (via HTTPS). Most ion my users have passwords defined but I have one, which is the 'family' user which is intended only for use within our home and so has no password defined. For this user I have unticked the box that says 'Allow remote connection to this server' but when I access the server remotely a ) The user still shows on the login screen b ) Clicking the user logs it in. This seems like quite a big security hole? Am I misunderstanding what the 'Allow remote connections to this server' option is supposed to do? How can I have a user that shows up on the login screen when accessed locally but does not show up and cannot log in when accessed remotely? Thanks, Chris
  6. I currently have Plex and wanting to switch over to Emby, but when I installed Emby yesterday and tried to access the server from work or I turned my Wifi off on my phone and used cell service, I keep getting a, "We're unable to connect to the selected server right now. Please ensure it is running and try again." Well, the server is running, can access it while on my network at home, but getting this error on my work computer and iPhone. On Plex, I am using the UPnP and it works great with my router, I have my firewall off, but I do have the inbound rule of port 80 open, so something is blocking this from working, but for the life of me, I can't figure it out since Plex works just fine with UPnP. Can someone help me, please?

    Play/Pause for Music

    Hi, I'm using the Emby Theater for Windows. I love it. Only gripe is regarding the ability to Pause Music. Videos work perfectly, using a keyboard if I press Play/Pause then the movie pauses, and starts playing again. When I'm playing music if I press Play/Pause then it restarts playing the current song and deletes all others from the queue. If I use the mouse to hit the pause button then it works as expected. Could you plesae make a modification to make the Play/Pause in Music function the same as with Videos? I'm hoping to introduce Emby to our customer base and this is the main flaw. Thanks, Steve
  9. Hi all, I am having an issue whereby I am unable to connect to my Emby Server remotely when using a domain. I have a SSL certificate that is correctly associated with the domain and works as it should. I have port forward setup on my router, and as a test I have used the external IP of my router as the external domain and this worked correctly and allowed me to access remotely. I've taken a log to show that it accepts the connection via the external IP as the external domain. If you require any further information please let me know. Thanks, Michael
  10. So, I've got a baffling issue. I cannot remotely connect to the MB server I have running on a Windows 10 machine. I've tried all suggestions on the connectivity page. But even with the firewall temporarily off, I cannot connect. Local connections work fine. I don't have access to router settings due to the apartment complex having all the routers locked down (whitelist probably). But I even tried using my mobile hotspot and no dice. Canyouseeme reported no response on port 8096 or 8920 using either internet service. I even tried each connection again with a VPN (PIA) turned on on the host machine, though I didn't expect any good results from that.

    VPN

    Ok so my problem is my server uses usenet and I need/want to use a vpn so that makes me use a vpn on my emby server due to them being on the same pc. Now when using a vpn (nord) I cant connect directly to my server and remotely on my devices. Any thing i can do?
  12. How does my ISP see my outgoing network traffic? Do they see the actual music titles? Movie titles? and Podcast titles? Or is it just file type information that they see. I have about 15 users. 5 of them are in my house, 7 of them are scattered around the country and a few are in different corners of the world. I'm probably streaming about 10-15 hrs a day to various users mostly HD content. I don't have an SSL cert setup yet and wondering if I should if my ISP is snooping on my data. Thanks!
  13. Hi all, I've mentioned this a long time ago in another thread, and haven't found a fix for it yet. The problem is, for some reason in MBT my Harmony 650 remote seems to work perfectly for everything, except when trying to "fast scroll" through my collections. What I mean by that is: I'm unable to hold down my arrow buttons and quickly move through my collection. Instead, I need to move through titles one at a time (I'd need to press the "right arrow" close to 900 times to get to the end of my movies collection). A while back someone mentioned that my remote may not be configured to repeat commands with the button held down. This is not the case. While I couldn't find an option to change that setting anywhere in my remote setup, I'm sure there's no need to, since it works perfectly fine in WMC. This problem seems to be limited to MBT for some reason. Any help would be greatly appreciated, since this problem keeps me from using my remote in MBT, and I'm stuck using my keyboard instead this really makes it an inconvienience, having the keyboard up on the couch next to you! Lol Thanks, Patrick
  14. Hello everybody. Recently I have moved my Emby server from local install on DietPi (Emby version was 4.2.0.40) to Docker (Emby version is 4.3.0.26 now). After this change, I cannot pause video, fast forward, rewind or continue watching. Before the switch to docker the functionality was present. I am using Samsung TV to open Emby over DLNA. Does anybody have an idea why this is happened and how to fix it? I have tried to run Emby in Docker with host network and with bridged network options. Result is the same. Thanks, Aleks.

    irTrans remote in linux?

    Does anyone have irTrans working in linux for Emby Theater? I have a living room htpc running emby server in a Zalman HD160 case that has IrTrans receiver remote built into it. IrTrans with the MCE remote has worked well for me in Windows 7 Media Center and Emby Media Center Classic, but it is time to retire Win7 MCE. IrTrans and the remote does work for Emby Theater for Windows, but I'm trying to avoid Win 10 bloat and its random rebooting for forced upgrades. So I'd like to shift to a Ubuntu htpc using Emby Theater to replace MCE in the living room, then possibly Docker after I get things debugged. Biggest stumbling block so far has been getting irTrans and the MCE remote to work in Emby Theater for linux. I downloaded the linux IrTrans drivers and installed them. Irtrans' irserver works in test mode, recognizing the MCE remote button presses. I then installed it as a service and made sure it starts. I configured a apps.cfg [*] section to translate buttons to keypress for emby-theater, as I had done in windows and as suggested elsewhere here. However, it does not work; no keypresses seem to be forwarded to the emby-server process [of which there are many]. File permissions on apps.cfg are set to a+r, so that shouldn't be the issue. Any chance anyone can help solve this Ubuntu/irTrans/remote issue?
  16. Can one change the 30 second skip forward/10 second backward times Emby Theater skips forward or backward when those buttons (or alternately the left/right buttons) are pressed on the remote? (or corresponding keys on keyboard?) Background: Using Win7 MCE, I was able to change those buttons time to 15 seconds forwards and 7 seconds backward (my preferred amounts for watching football, which is one of the few shows I still watch in the Living Room). I'm now thinking of finally transitioning to Emby Theater & Emby Server LiveTV due to the Windows 7 EoL and no more MCE Guide after next week. I've been testing ET on my MCE box to see what might work after years of a stable system (Thanks Luke & team!). Looking at going to a Linux htpc install with ET vs Win 10 with either ET or the MCE port. I did look through the github source code for Emby Theater to see if I could spot an easy fix, but I think the number of seconds might be server determined? It appeared that it just got a new URL with a new seek time passed to it. (If so, perhaps this is more appropriate as a server feature request?)
  17. The PC that I have set up an Emby server on uses Mullvad VPN often, but not always. My goal is to be able to watch the server's media files through other devices, no matter if the VPN is active or inactive. When the VPN is active, the connection fails. When the VPN is inactive, the connection succeeds. Mullvad allows port fowarding, and I've read a few guides on that, as well as the Connectivity Wiki for Emby but am still having trouble, either because I don't quite understand how it works or because the guides weren't specific enough for my issue. So far, I have only tried to connect through a Fire Stick and it works only when the VPN is inactive. If the VPN is on, entering either the LAN and WAN address still gives a connection error. Emby Connect has connected my user account to the server, but the server still does not show on the app after entering the pin. I appreciate any suggestions that you can give.

    shortcut to main menu

    Not sure if there is a way to do this, but if I am watching an episode, is there a button on the remote I can press to go back to the Emby Home Screen, rather than having to keep pressing return to get back to it
  19. I've seen some helpful posts regarding this by some advanced users, notably @@skidmarks and @@Tur0k but I'm having no luck. Anyone else successfully doing this with PIA? My setup is: * Emby server 4.2.0.40 on MacOS 10.12.6 Sierra and also running PIA 1.1.1 * Internet is cable to an ISP-supplied modem, WAN port to Asus RT-AC68U, ethernet to the Emby server. * Emby server has a manually-assigned IP via the Asus GUI to its MAC address. * Emby remote port is 8096 via http When my server is not connected to the PIA VPN, I can scan the server's public-facing IP (from another computer) for open ports and I see 8096 is indeed open. When I connect the server to the VPN and scan the server's new public-facing IP, 8096 isn't open. These are the things I've tried and have all failed: 1. Forward 8096 to the server's local IP address via the Asus GUI. 2. Enable port-forwarding in the PIA VPN client; change the Emby server remote http port to the port the VPN is forwarding (this is a read-only assigned port in PIA); forward the new port to the server's local IP address via the Asus GUI. Scanning the new public-facing IP shows the new port (and 8096) is not open. 3. Same as #2 but leave the Emby remote port as the default 8096. 4. In the Asus GUI additionally specify the destination local port as 8096. 5. All of the above with different PIA VPN locations among the ones that support port-forwarding. 6. All of the above with MacOS firewall disabled. Thanks!

    Remote control Roku via external server

    I remember some time ago when I was able to send remote control commands to the Roku app from a server outside the network via websockets. From what I understand is, currently it's not possible to do this anymore since the new Roku remote control API implementation. I'm aware of the port forwarding solution, but that's an impossible feat to teach Mom; she won't even attempt it. lol I was wondering if there's any other way to get this to work again. Maybe revert the websocket removal in the next release or a plugin of some sort? Any advise to point me in the right direction would be groovy smoothie. Thank you!
  21. Hi all, Just a quick question I am using Emby for WMC (always just like the look of it) on Win 10, and recently had to repair my OS.One of the pecularities of my hardware setup is that I have a TV tuner card, which I only use the IR receiver for to switch the HTPC on/off and navigate as a MCE Remote, I have setup the remote to toggle the desktop (minimising WMC) and then closing it, before sending a shutdown command. However, in the OS rebuild and all apps, I now have Emby for WMC responding to my * cmd to (mapped to shutdown WMC) as this is a remote key shortcut on the homescreen for the context menu. I cannot remember how I reassigned this key in Emby for WMC, any ideas? I need the * cmd for my shutdown and simply want to reassign the "context menu" remote key to something different like a 'Y" - something I don't use. Is this possible, maybe by editing an xml file? Thanks in advance for any help and suggestions

    Transcoding settings help

    Hi, I'm running latest version on Emby on a QNAP 451+ (not the fastest, but best I could afford at the time). I am going to be working away from home for a few months, and would love to be able to access my media via Emby remotely. I have tested this with default transcoding settings, but get a lot of buffering. My home network has good download speed, but only 1mbps unload. I know there will probably be some files I won't be able to play (because of the format), but wanted to know if I can watch my content with such a low upload speed (I know the files will probably need transcoding). Some files are SD and some are HD (720p and 1080p). If it is possible, what would you recommend for best transcoding settings/any other settings? Many thanks for any help

    Remote access acting strange

    I have done all the troubleshooting usually recommended however a strange issue persists. Local connections work fine however remote connections have a very strange issue when I can access my servers via my mobile on data on my phone but I cannot access them when I am connected to my home wifi network unless I am using a VPN. Is this my router blocking something incoming?

    ANSWERED Emby WAN URL

    I seem to be having issues accessing my server from the internet in certain situations. Currently, my SSL connections is handled by a reverse proxy, apache. This URL is (for example) https://emby.server.com/ but the URL listed on my dashboard is listed as https://emby.server.com:8920/. When connecting to my server with the reverse proxy URL I never have any issues establishing a connection but the URL posted in the dashboard seems to go down randomly. This is an issue because users connecting to my server with emby connect accounts are usually trying to access the server via dashboard URL. My question is can I drop the port number from the WAN access URL on my dashboard and set it to just https://emby.server.com/ or can we troubleshoot why the dashboard URL is not connecting to my server? Please let me know if I need to provide any logs.
  25. Hello. A very satisfied user of Emby. Thank you to those that put a lot of hard work into a beautifully crafted app. My issue started 3 days ago. No remote access. Troubleshooting: In-Home access is visible. Static route is still in place. Port forwarding confirmed. VPN is used when testing Remote access. I have reviewed and followed the MediaBrowser Connectivity article. Firewall is not blocking anything related to Media Server nor the serverapp.exe I have troubleshot with the previous install, and with a fresh install. No luck It would appear there is no route to host Anyone have any suggestions as to what the next step would be? Thank you in advance.
