  1. Hallo an Alle! Ich habe mir die emby Software in der letzten Woche auf meine Synology Diskstation installiert, einen externen Zugriff eingerichtet und läuft soweit. Der erste Eindruck war so gut, dass ich mich zum Sponsern über die Lifetime Lizens hab hinreißen lassen. In den Einstellungen unter Startseite habe ich mir die Liste so angepasst, dass auch Weiterhören dort auftaucht. Aber egal was ich höre, Wiedergabe eines Musik-Albums, einer Playlist, eines Hörbuches... nie wird mir Weiterhören angeboten. Bei Serien und Filmen wird Weiterschauen aber angeboten. Woran kann das liegen?

    Emby migration: docker to native

    I m currently running Emby version inside Docker on Synology version 7.0.41890. I would like to eliminate the Docker component, and run the native Emby app that is found in the Synology package. For movies and TV shows, the metadata is in the save folders. For music and books, it is in the Mysql database. My libraries are huge. Does anyone have experience with this type of migration and if so what can I expect?

    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..
  5. 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
  6. Hello, im using a Enigma2 receiver with OpenATV 7.x. I created a *.m3u8 from the OpenWebIF-Plugin. (see screenshot) If i copy the m3u8 file to my Synology DS720+ and add it in Emby as a M3U-Tuner, i can´t see any channels. On my Windows 11 Computer with e.g. VLCplayer its working just fine. Can someone tell me, what am I doing wrong? Thanks

    Problem accessing Emby through LTE

    Hi, As the title say, I have a little problem accessing my Emby server via LTE. I use my Synology NAS connected to an LTE router. All Synology services do work remotely trough quickconnect. Things I have done so far: created a DynDNS Hostname with the public iPv4 Address of my NAS (and consequently Emby). installed the No-IP "Dynamic Update Client" on a computer on the same network as my NAS configured the Dynamic Update Client to connect to my No-IP account opened the port that Emby runs on on my LTE router. However, for some reason I still cannot reach my Emby server through the domain I set via No-IP. I must have missed something, but somehow I cannot make out why. And what I also do not understand fully, is that all my Synology services do run through quickconnect. Is there maybe a way to have Emby go through quickconnect too? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Dan
  9. Hey! I've been upgraded some of my media files from 1080p to 4k and I've noticed that if I try to put on subtitles the stream just won't even start. My wife and I watch pretty much everything with subtitles on :D. When I look at the media as it's playing (from my phone) it saying that it's doing some transcoding because of the subtitles. Right now, I don't believe I have ever made any changes to the transcoding in the setup. Any thoughts? ffmpeg-transcode-1768d0b7-c57f-4885-a1df-bf90f7a628bf_1.txt

    Emby / Uptobox / .strm

    Bonjour à tous, Je viens de découvrir grâce à Emby les fichiers "*.strm". Une fonction qui peut être extrêmement pratique ! J'ai fais quelques essais en mettant des vidéos sur Uptobox, j'ai ensuite copier le lien de téléchargement pour créer mon ficher .strm. La démarche fonctionne très bien et Emby lit correctement le film sur TV, smartphone et navigateur. Cependant Emby est installer sur un NAS synology DS 720+ et lorsque je lance un film il transcode avec un cpu de 90%... Est-il possible de récupérer uniquement le liens de streaming? Avez-vous une solution pour éviter le transcodage? D'avance merci pour votre aide

    photo won't load on synology DSM 7.1

    Using Emby version - videos in a folder will load - photo in folder will not load - Emby user has been given permission - rescan numerous times. not updating What am I doing wrong? I'm currently testing this to see if it is worthwhile for the paid version. Is the reason because I need the pay reason.

    Cant resume movie where left off.

    Hi folks, When I start a movie, it actually starts with showing 1 trailer. I like it that way. After the tralier the movie starts as expected. But when I stop the movie, and start it again, a message appears if I would like to start the movie at the point where I left it or start from the beginning. Usually I choose to start where I left it, but it always starts from the beginning. In the log I see: Playback stopped reported by app Emby for Kodi Next Gen 7.7.7 playing Hell Hath No Fury. Stopped at 1332000 ms Playback start reported by app Emby for Kodi Next Gen 7.7.7 playing Hell Hath No Fury. Started at 0 ms The second line is a bit strange because I choose to start the movie where I left it. I checked the advanced settings (playback) of the library and did not find anything strange. Any suggestions? Kind regards,
  13. Hi, nutze eine Synology DS720+ mit EmbyServer (App, nicht über Docker). Habe diese gestern manuell mit der x64 *.spk Datei geupdatet und nun habe ich keinen EPG mehr. Den EPG beziehe ich über easyEPG über Docker. Die Sender über mein Zattoo-Account, welches ich über Telerising eingebunden habe. Das läuft einwandfrei. In der Emby-Log sehe ich auch, dass die EPG-Daten gefunden werden, blos nicht angezeigt werden. Außer bei 2 Sender. Habe die XMLs nochmals neu über das easyEPG-Script gezogen und danach den Server neugestartet und manuell die EPG-Daten nochmal einlesen lassen. Pfade überprüft...stimmt wohl alles. Aber EPG wird einfach nicht mehr angezeigt. Embyversion ist die "emby-server-synology7_4.7.6.0_x86_64.spk", Synology hat DSM 7 installiert. Ansonsten ist Docker, Telerising und easyEPG auch auf dem neusten stand. Hat da wer eine Idee, warum das plötzlich so ist? Habe mal im Anhang paar Bilder und die Log. PS: Scheint wohl das selbe Problem wie HIER zu sein. Werde daraus aber nicht so wirklich schlau. Lg taker-` embyserver.txt horizon_de.xml magentatv_de.xml swisscom_ch.xml tv-spielfilm_de.xml
  14. This guide will help in the updating of Emby server from command line remotely from any location. The tools you use may differ, but the procedures will be similar. 1. Download the Emby server package from GitHub Start Synology Download Station Click Create download task via URL Select the destination and Enter the URL for the Emby Server package file Click OK 2. Connect remotely to NAS using SSH Start SSH client such as Windows Terminal/PowerShell Enter SSH command in the format: ssh Admin@NAS IP address -p ssh port number Ex: ssh Admin@ -p 8022 Enter Admin password 3. Install the Emby Server package Change directory to where you downloaded the Emby Server package file Ex: cd volume1/Downloads Stop the current Emby Server package from running sudo synopkg stop EmbyServer Install the Emby Server package you downloaded earlier Ex: sudo synopkg install emby-server-synology7_4.8.0.8_x86_64.spk Emby Server has now updated and the status should be running.
  15. WinSCP is a popular SFTP client and FTP client for Microsoft Windows which can be used as a GUI alternative to Putty or Terminal. The procedures below will allow you to perform tasks as Superuser just like you can with Putty or Terminal. If you do not need superuser access with WinSCP and just want to access your NAS using Admin then skip the steps (2, 3, and 6) in blue. 1. Enable SSH on Synology NAS Open DSM Control Panel Click Terminal & SNMP Click Terminal tab Check "Enable SSH service" Click "Apply" 2. Create script to modify sudoers config file on Synology NAS This script modifies the sudoers file which is needed to prevent DSM from prompting administrators only for the Admin password again when switching to superuser during the login process as WinSCP can't handle this prompt. This script is saved to rerun again later because DSM updates tend to overwrite any changes to the sudoers file. Open DSM Control Panel Click Task Scheduler Create a Scheduled Task - User-defined script Click General Tab Set task name "Reset Sudoers" Set user as "root" Uncheck "Enabled" box Click Task Setting tab Copy/paste the following into the Run command box cat <<EOF > /etc/sudoers Defaults syslog=authpriv root ALL=(ALL) ALL %administrators ALL=NOPASSWD: ALL EOF chmod ug=r,o= /etc/sudoers Click OK 3. Run the "Reset Sudoers" script on Synology NAS This step will need to be rerun whenever a DSM update puts your sudoers file back to default Highlight the new script you just created Click Run Click Yes 4. Install WinSCP Download and install WinSCP on Windows machine https://winscp.net/eng/download.php Allow WinSCP to start when done 5. Configure WinSCP to auto logon Create a new session/site: Change Login window using the following File protocol: SCP Host name: enter the NAS host name or IP address Port number: enter the port number you used from step 3 Enter User name: "admin" and password 6. Add switching to super user Click the Advanced... button In the the Advanced Site Settings window do the following: Select SCP/Shell under Environment Shell box: "sudo -i" Click OK to return to the Login window Click Save Click "Login" 7. Create a saved workspace for WinSCP (this step is optional) This will create a Windows shortcut to start WinSCP and automatically login to your session without any prompts Log into your new session you created in Step 5 Click Sessions Click Save Workspace... type a name for your new workspace Click OK 8. Create a shortcut for WinSCP on taskbar (this step is optional) While WinSCP is running Right Click the icon on the taskbar and choose "Pin to taskbar" Right Click on the WinSCP icon on the taskbar again Now Right Click on the WinSCP workspace you used in Step 7 and choose properties Your shortcut should look something like the one below with the exception of the workspace you used above Example Windows shortcut used on target line above "C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.exe" "Media-Server" /Desktop Click OK Click WinSCP icon on taskbar start WinSCP and be logged into your NAS as Superuser without any prompts
  16. Hi All, I have forwarded my synology https port and I am making use of the same to reverse proxy to Emby. I am able to access my Emby server remotely via https via browsers on phone or laptop. However, I am not able to connect to the same link via Apple TV. Could someone throw some light here. 1. tried the link with and without Port number. 2. tried reinstalling the app and restarted the server 3. Tried with and without automatic port mapping setting on Emby server the certificate I am using is from synology. The default certificate that is user for quick connect. I have forwarded the https synology port to local http port on LAN and enabled reverse proxy. Thanks in advance
  17. Synology version: dsm7.1-42661 emby version: Yesterday, I logged in to Synology's admin account through winscp, and after adding the javtube.all plug-in, I found that the original javscraper.dll plug-in could not be used. Then, I upgraded the emby version to the latest. After re-adding the plugin, it still doesn't work. I reinstalled emby 5 times and found that the plugin still cannot be used. The plugin directory is also displayed wirelessly. Hope to be able to tell me what's going on. By searching the emby forum information, I found that many people have a similar situation, and I don't know whether the root cause of the problem is the same. 1. https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/99745-dsm-6-to-dsm-7-emby-migration-instructions/ 2. https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/99564-cant-install-any-plugin-after-update-to-dsm-7/ 3. https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/99441-update-to-dsm-7-has-caused-issues/page/6/#comment-1076417 4. https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/99827-how-to-install-external-plug-ins-in-the-dsm70/ 5. https://github.com/JavScraper/Emby.Plugins.JavScraper/issues/27 6. https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/100063-location-of-the-plugins-folder-on-synology-7/#comment-1046969 Finally, I found that the poster of the sixth link solved the problem, which should have been solved by giving emby permission to use the plugins directory using synology. Since I'm not an IT practitioner, I don't know how to authorize. Very much hope to solve similar problems, thank you all! JavTube.dll JavScraper.dll embyserver (1).txt
  18. I am another DS214play user on beta and can confirm hardware transcoding is not working. The exact name of the package I'm on is emby-server-synology7-mono_4.7.0.19_x86.spk Is there any intention make progress on this, or does the age and diminished user base of the device mean we should not hold our breath? EDIT : DSM Version is 7.0.1-42218
  19. So I attempted multiple methods to backup emby and follow guides for accurate removal and reinstall from DSM 6 > 7. After encountering a host of issues I gave up the ghost and just went ahead and uninstalled emby, updated the server and reinstalled. I knew this would require me recreating the server - whatever, I have time. Now that I've done this I can't see any of my media when adding libraries. They don't even appear to scan - I see no percentage check or anything. Just empty libraries. I've used the emby install from package center and the updated one with a manual pkg I've tried changing permissions on the shared folders to other users, including the embysvr user itself. I've tried reinstalling. I've tried chowning all my folders. I've tried everything, up to and including making embysvr an admin! Nothing is working! Any assistance, next steps or links to guides would be more than welcome. embyserver.txt

    Performance Improvements

    I'm using EmbyServer on my Synology (DS1815+ with 6GB RAM ). So far so good. But my database is getting bigger as time progresses. I was wondering if I can improve the performance. Just opening "Home screen" on one of my devices takes a long time. One tip once mentioned is placing the db on a SSD. My library.db is 261.452 KB For my synology I was thinking placing this on an external usb stick. When looking through the folders I saw all the data in the folder /volume1/@appstore/EmbyServer/var/data/. Is it wise and will it improve the performace if I place this folder with a symlink on an usb stick?? Thnx
  22. I have emby APP installed on my Synology NAS. If I use my Roku Ultra (also using emby APP) to stream personal videos from my Synology server, everything is working good. If I use my Amazon FireStick (with emby APP), a lot of my videos are upside down or sideways. Videos were recorded using my iPhone. Thanks
  23. I installed the emby app on my iphone 11 pro and noticed all movies that I am trying to play stop immediately after hitting play. All of them. Same on the browser. No idea how to troubleshoot this, I tried restarting as well.
  24. Adding libraries to Emby server is a little different under DSM 7 in that setting permissions for the shared folders has changed some. If you've ever tried to add a library to Emby and it wouldn't accept, then the permissions might be wrong 1. Give emby read/write permissions to the shared folder Open Control Panel...Shared Folder in DSM on your NAS Select your shared folder...Edit... and then under the Permissions tab select the dropdown box and change it to "System internal user" Check Read/Write next to the user 'emby' and then click Save 2. Add libraries in Emby server Settings...Library...New Library Select the library type and enter library folder information Example:
  25. A common reason Emby's Real Time Monitoring (RTM) stops working on Synology NAS is because the Unix set user limit on inotify instances and/or watches has been reached as a result of a large number of changes for instances to process and/or the total amount of folders, files, etc that need to be monitored by watches. When RTM stops working you may start to see errors in your server logs like the following where the default number of user watches (8192) has been reached. A similar error will show up when the default inotify instances (128) is reached. System.IO.IOException: System.IO.IOException: The configured user limit (8192) on the number of inotify watches has been reached, or the operating system failed to allocate a required resource. To increase the number of inotify instances and/or watches create the following task in DSM control panel Task Scheduler. 1. Create a Triggered Task...User-defined script to run at Boot-up 2. Paste the following commands under the Task Settings tab sh -c '(sleep 90 && echo 204800 > /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches)&' sh -c '(sleep 90 && echo 10000 > /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_instances)&' 3. Click Run to execute the new task The task will then rerun during every boot to prevent the changes from being reverted back to default. To check that your changes took affect you can optionally run the following commands in Terminal cat /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_instances cat /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches If your library gets really big and the limit of user watches is again reached, then just increase the number again. The maximum number of watches allowed in Unix is 524,288 and each used watch takes about 1kb of memory on a 32-bit system (double on 64-bit). However, it will only use what is needed based on the number of items being watched.
