  1. Hi Team, I've noticed a bit of a strange one where some of my audiobooks get the author tagged, but some take the category of "Audiobooks". I am pretty particular about my metadata, and i manually join all of my audiobooks with a converter program and put all of the metadata. Is their a setting i should be using in the libary to prevent this? This is the behaviour that i'm getting below, for example the Kate Quinn book. And these are my libarry settings for Audiobooks
  2. Generally I am only listening to a single AudioBook at a time. In addition, many of the fantasy/ sci-fi books I read have titles that are difficult for Google Assistant to interpret. I would appreciate the option to to simply ask Google Assistant "Ask Emby Home to resume my audiobook" and Emby would begin playing my most recently played AudioBook . At it's core I want a way to resume my AudioBook without having to speak the title. I think the simplest way to accomplish that is to default to resuming my most recently played book. I know there is the command to ask "what (show/movie/audio book) was I in the middle of?" but when I use that I just get a list of all of the media that I've listened/ watched recently. I really hope this can be added. Thanks.
  3. Can you add an option, when resuming an AudioBook, to rewind playback (ex: 3-30 seconds) depending on how long the pause was? (Without rewinding beyond the beginning of a chapter) My favorite audiobook app does this and it greatly improves the listening experience. When I am repeatedly interrupted, and need to repeatedly pause my book, I'm not resuming in the middle of a word (3 second rewind). When I'm resuming after a long pause I'm given a few sentences to remember where I'm at in the book (30 second rewind). I would love for these values to be adjustable at the library level, or perhaps a few presets. ex: no rewind, short [up to 15 seconds], medium [up to 30 seconds] Thanks.

    Play one CD at a time

    If an album contains several CDs it would be great if the user would be able to click on headline "Disc 1" or "Disc 2", which are already there, and emby would play just this one CD. Thanks in advance.

    Audiobooks source?

    Hi, Where do you guys get your audiobooks from, that can be played in Emby. Things like audible.com require you to use their own apps. Obviously don't post here, if not a legal source (PM me instead) Thanks Please delete this post, if not allowed (don't want anyone getting in trouble)
  7. Emby for Android Mobile 3.1.20: Wenn starting an audiobook with lot's of files in a playlist, the tracks don't start at the beginning. So, after fininshing one track, the next track start somewhere but not at beginning. I can reproduce it as follows: Start an audio playlist and listen. Stop somewhere - end emby app start emby app Mainscreen "continue listening". Here, only the last file of the audiobook-playlist is shown unforunately but with progress bar. That's why I open this file, click "more-show album and here I start a new playback with the file i stopped. Automaticaly a new playlist is generated. And when playing this playlist, the tracks don't start at the beginning. I don't notice the bug within the webapp. Here everything seems to be fine.
  8. I'm using emby Version atm, still quite new to emby but I'm testing out the features one after one by time. I'm on the Audiobooks section now, playback works fine, but I noticed the "recently added" section doesn't seem to work "correctly" for these. Ofc it links to the newest added file, but not to the newest added Audiobook, which would be much better. If I click on the recently added audiobook, it opens either the last or the first track of that audiobook, but only that. If I then manually click on go to album, then I can listen the whole album from the beginbning to the end, but that step seems unnessesary to me. It would be better if it wouldn't open the last added file, but the last added album. Can I somehow fix it myself or if not, can I completely remove the recently added section only for audiobooks by css editing maybe? Regards
  9. Hi, Audiobooks only shows 1 "Latest Audio books", even if I add more than 1. I now added 3 in an hour and it finds the new files fine, but just displays 1 under the "Latest Audio books" heading. Movies and series show quite a few more. Thanks. Warren.
  10. Hi Could you please add add a db service like goodreads.com (they have and IPI) or something that could identify and download images and metadata for ebooks and audiobooks by name like movies and series? Thanks
  11. Hello, I'm attempting to listen to my audiobooks on my server via the Android app, and there doesn't seem to be a "resume from..." playback option? When I load the file in a web browser it has the resume playback as the first option, but when I select it on the Emby android app the only options available are Play, which starts from the beginning each time. How do I get it to resume playback from where I left off on the app?

    Audiobooks / Music Resume Playback

    Hey, in the past i had my emby server on a NUC, now its switched back on my DS218+. For some reason i miss the feature "resume playback" of my audiobooks or music. i had this working on my NUC and i got single file audiobooks (length about 8hrs xD) so resume playback is essential to use emby for that. how can i enable this? i dont see any option right away, but could be blindness Ok, i found the actual problem. first of all, for whatever reason i needed to rearrange the librarys to get the feature working.i got audiobooks with files that go something like 8-14hrs ... there must be a minimum % of playback before the file is listed to make resume possible or something, if i move forward to the middle of the file, its listed. if its played like 13min its not listed. can somebody tell me more about this? wouldbe great to change that because if i start listening to a file and just drive to work (10minutes away) i cant resume . thanks in advance using latest Server for Synology

    Music Library w/ Audio books flickering

    I recently installed the Emby server on my Windows 7 PC and have set up a Music library under which I have placed my audio book folders (all MP3 Audio files within their own folders). I use a Roku 2 to access Emby via the app from the Roku store. I can access and play the audio via the Roku, but when I do press play the background flickers between black, a rainbow color, and transitions between some combination of the two. All media on the screen appears and disappears, including but not limited to: buttons for Play and Stop, all images, and the entire Now Playing section at the bottom. When I back out of the Music library the images at my Home Screen continue to appear and disappear, and the background continues its psychedelic dance. My Windows 7 doesn't have this problem. Is this a known bug or did I set up my audio books incorrectly?

    What is the best way to add audiobooks into Emby? I have looked around and it sounds like the best way is to add them as a separate Music library and call it good. This sorta works however there is no resume support at all doing it this way and it also doesn't seem to want to play the next track. Has anyone come up with a better solution? And is there any play for implementing an audio book features?
  15. Apologies if this has been brought up before, but I'd like to request that a new media type be created for audio files (.mp3 or whatever) that are not considered music. These could be Talk Shows, Audio books, Stand-Up Comedy, etc. For example, I download a show called Mysterious Universe via an RSS downloader. I would use the Podcasts plugin, but it doesn't support usernames and passwords. Anyway, I download these into a folder that is part of collection in Media Browser. Everything gets added correctly, except these mp3's are considered Music by Media Browser. So now these files are displayed when I browse through my music. I'd like to have them separated as a media type, but a better type doesn't seem to exist. Thanks for reading!
