    Backup with and without plugin

    Read a question just asked about copying user data to a new server with plugin. Is there any sort of documentation on things like where config data is stored, and how to back it up with and without the plugin? I like knowing a bit about systems I'm running so I can tweak a bit. It would be nice to know what I can expect moving my server from Windows to Linux, and how much my users will have to redo. As a first attempt moving my Windows server to CentOS, after I got the server up and running, I copied the contents of my Windows "User/AppData/Roaming/Emby-Server/programdata" into the Unix's "/var/lib/emby" directory (all the subdirectories were the same, so I thought it might work), which resulted in an evil core dump...lucky I backed up the original emby directory before I did that, so no permanent harm. Still, it should just be a matter of finding the right files and copying them over, not copying over the system/OS specific ones, and then making a few tweaks for the new environment, right? If only I knew which files to move and which to tweak... Thanks very much,
  2. I'm running emby server 4.2.1.0 in docker, attaching with different browsers (Google Chrome, Chromium, Opera, Firefox) from both Linux & Mac. I'm sure the landing page after login always used to be the Home Page (layout configured in user settings), but recently (after a server update I guess), the landing page is now always the Dashboard. I've not found a landing page config item - and the name 'Home Page' suggests that's where I should land/ Am I missing something basic, or could this be a bug? I have tested both with: - Just IP & port in url - Using a bookmark created from the Home Page .. selected to initially reach the Login Page.

    Change Library Path

    I really dont't know if the titles corresponds accurately to my problem, so I will give a brief explanation of what happened. I have emby-server installed an an Ubuntu 16.04 Server. For long time, I had this server turned off. So I started it again and first thing I did was to update all packages. My latest version was installed by the repo that existed for Ubuntu package. But since this repo is no longer existing, I updated to the current version, by downloading the deb package and installing it. I think that this way, broke some things up, because here it is the situation I have right now. All my libraries after the update still exists, but cannot be updated. After searching around I found out that in the Metadata manager all my libraries have there path defined to /var/lib/emby-server/root/default, but the actual path is /var/lib/emby/root/default. I tried to change this path to the correct one, but It looks like that is not possible. I want to avoid deleting the libraries and recreating them, since there are a lot of libraries and mainly because almost all the metadata inside those libraries, were created by hand in a period of 2 years. As a work around I just created a symlink /var/lib/emby-server that points to /var/lib/emby/ but if there is some other more straightforward way it would be great.
  4. I did install the version 3.4.1.0 on my DS918+. As the disks do not enter hibernation I wanted to disable "automatic portmapping" (as suggested somwhere in this forum). However changing the parameters in the Advanced -> Hosting section do not have any effect. This does apply to all parameters - none of them is saved after pressing "Save". Only two message boxes appear. Could somebody please help ? From my point of view it look like the user requesting the cahnges does not have the permission on file system level ... Thx a lot !

    EMBY

    Dear all, i want to know can i use ubuntu 16.04 server EMby. is this stable? how can i create front login panel. i don't want to use nas server. in this case how can i do it?
  6. Can someone help me understand the server-side user setting called "Allow downloading that requires transcoding"? Server > Users > {select a user} > Downloading There are two settings that can each be independently enabled/disabled per user: * Allow media downloading * Allow downloading that requires transcoding The first seems pretty self-explanatory and I have it enabled for all users. The second setting is relatively new (I don't remember seeing it before) and it confuses me. I understand what transcoding means in the context of video playback over the network, but not what it means in the context of downloading a media file. What does transcoding have to do with a file download? Any help you could give me in understanding that setting would be appreciated. The wiki doesn't show the setting (yet?).

    Restore from Time Machine?

    Managed to trash my server somehow in one move, made one setting change (public https port number) in the process of setting up https in advanced, saved setting, clicked restart, and it hung there without restarting. Did system reboot, etc. all the standard stuff, app would seem to run, but refused to stay open when attempting to open dashboard, could see it drop out of processes in Activity Monitor when accessed. Tried reinstall of latest package, still no joy. The only thing I could think of as a factor is the machine OS was recently updated to 10.12.5, but emby seemed to be working fine after that update until I tried the config change/restart. Tried restoring emby app and emby-server files in ~/.config using Time Machine backup from yesterday, no dice. On the theory of it being an issue with 10.12.5, I did a complete system restore from yesterday prior to the update to bring it back to 10/12.4, and that didn't work either. So, I trashed the app file and the emby-server config file again, and started an install from scratch. That seems to be working just fine, but it's going to take me several hours to get back to where I was, and will have lost track of a bunch off-air recording data, etc. What is going on here that I'm missing in terms of where files are located? And why is this config so difficult to restore from a backup?
  8. Hi, I just had an interesting experience this afternoon. Since is I switched to beta for some time because of a bug, the Dashboard has been asking me to update, always showing a beta version. But any update mechanisms correctly update to the next stable version. Not a real problem here... So I started looking around and found SystemUpdateLevel in config/system.xml and proceeded to set it to "Stable". After a quick restart I found myself faced by the 1st Install Wizzard... dafuq? ok... system.xml has been reset to defaults. no backup to be found... ...but nice to find out that the correct keyord would have been "Release" So I go through the install steps and near the end username is already filled out with "exampleuser" i change it to my admin username and complete. Now the login screen comes up and admin is there twice. I can't login with either. One or more errors occurred.

I guess related to having 2 users by the same name. Now I go looking again, find users.db and delete the row of the now erroneously named exampleuser. I can login again \o/ but only to find none of my shows or movies had any of the associated metadata show up. Why did that happen? At the moment the libraries are still being scanned at about the speed I'd expect from a first scan, all the settings have .nfo files, which are present, priotitized. So why is the scan semingly not using those for speedup? I'm not even sure there's a bug in here, but it certainly would have been nice if emby had made a backup before resetting everything, instead of relying on me not to forget making one... greetings /moddie

    Emby for Roku

    Emby For Roku Setup Guide Assumptions The Author only had access to a Roku 3 (Model 4200X Software v5.4 2240) . It is assumed that all Rokus behave in the same way in respect of this guide.Prerequisites Install EMBY Server. Create an EMBY User. Optionally (and recommended) make user an EMBY Connect User (by registering on community forums and adding the valid MB community username to the user account under server configuration and authorising via email) http://emby.media/connect/ Follow the Roku product installation instructions to register your email address/Roku account. Ensure the Roku has a valid IP route to your EMBY server and ensure the necessary rules are applied on any intermediary firewalls. See Client<>Server Connection Troubleshooting. Guide Chapters Adding EMBY Channel to Your Roku. Connect EMBY Roku Client to EMBY Server Client<>Server Connection Troubleshooting. Note many of the pictures in this guide need updating for the latest version and new product name. Media Browser is now EMBY
  10. I am just after some clarification around setting up MBS. I have MBS installed on a PC that has all my media on it. I then have another PC in my living room with MBC installed on it. Do I need to install codecs either on the MBS PC or MBC PC to be able to play all file types including .mkv files and also have external subtitles working? I have read about transcoding and not sure how it all works and if I need to configure anything to get it all going.
  11. A setting in config that, when checked, would block exit from MBC (like some themes have done). It is very easy to hit the "back" button to many times and accidentally exit out of MBC. For me, it would be best to simply the block the action when checked since I use MBC exclusively on my HTPC. For other, perhaps a sub setting that if the block is enabled, a second check box would throw up a confirmation dialog and exit if the user selects "yes" (like what theme Crystal or Breeze is doing). Thanks.
