  1. Hi all, I'm in the process of setting up a custom API for personal use and I noticed that there are some tv shows that do not have the genre information on the database, even though the information is displayed on the apps. Here's an example: Did not notice this behavior with movie files. Does Emby store genre information on another column/field other than this one?
  2. I added a mislabeled Album(now that's 80's-Dance) and it made a mess of my music and my Emby layout! So I deleted the music folder, cleared all the music to another temp location. I added a new Music Folder in Emby Server, I then after pains takingly manually updated all the albums to be correct put them back 1 at a time verifying as i went along. However, 1 album is showing the Folder location, instead of the Artist name or Album name, it shows as folder name, and it is causing sorting issues, such as putting album under e, instead of A for Aerosmith I double checke

    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 a
  4. Important Update Vacuuming is built into newer server versions. Please see here: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/75510-42032-vacuum-database-config-switch/ So I recently had the problem that Emby took forever to show any Channels when switching to Live TV and was generally slow. I'm using a HomeRun Expand with approximately 350 channels. Keep in mind I have already tried disabling any plugins I'm not using without any success. Reading through some forum posts I fould a fix that has seemed to improve the performance of the loading by quite a bit. Thank you kjp

    Considering Emby can it...

    Greetings been using a alternative media server for years, But now i finally need to find something better. Looking at Emby looks nice but from a technical point i have a few questions if i may. Emby uses sqlite3 afaik this is really troublesome for large media servers (12TB) even with db on dedicated zfs pool no compression etc. it still is shaky at best imho, mind you this all from experience with my current server wich might be just using sqllite3 wrong not an expert on DB's. How is the performance/stability on emby with large db's, And are there alternatives mysql ? How do

    Episodes Present - Show as Missing

    Emby Server Ubuntu Server 20.04.1 TV show library has decided that Season 4 of Scrubs mostly doesn't exist, except episode 4. These files are very much present, permissions are good, Emby can write to the directory, and it's even indexing things; populating .nfo files in-directory fine. Things I've tried: Removing directory from server, deleting everything but the .avi files, converting said .avis to h264 MP4s with AAC audio, refreshing library, moving folder back to server with a different name (Season 4, rather than Season 04), and rescanning, did not help.

    Vanishing Collections

    Problem on an Nvidia Shield Pro running Emby Server Sometime over the past 72 hours all of the collections on my Emby Server webUI and TV UI disappeared: While they are missing from the UI, they are still in the "internal storage": The highlighted collection.xml file is attached, and the paths it contains appear to be correct: How do I get the server to recognize the collections again? collection.xml
  8. I'd love to figure out a way to solve a problem with scraping in Emby. I am finding that Emby never scrapes all of the actor images for movies that I import. And I'm not talking about indie movies, I'm talking about AAA movies with big name actors. It will always find some, but never a complete list. So part of my work-flow for importing a movie is to go back through and manually search for actor images and cards and fill them out myself. I'm a completionist, and having gray cards for actors is a no-go for me. Hopefully I'm not alone in this though. I think that the issue is that the curre
  9. Hi to everyone. I moved my media to a new server and i followed the migration guide linked on github. On my old server was running emby, the same that i installed on the new one. I made a manual backup and it was all ok until i tried to restore the usaerdatas table from the old library db to the new one. The problem is that the old db has more columns that the new one in the userdatas table (14 vs 12) There is a way to fix this problem? Thanks in advance for your answers. @@Happy2Play @@arrbee99 @@chef
  10. I have a bunch of media and they got other genre names than I want. Emby used SQLLite so I assume I can use "DB Browser for SQLite" to update the genres to move them into the same Genre. Right? Here is the steps I did: 1. Shutdown the Emby Server (right click on tray icon and exit) 2. Start up the program "DB Browser for SQLite" 3. Open %AppData%\Emby-Server\programdata\data\Library.db 4. Click the tab "Execute SQL" and type: update MediaItems set Genres = replace(Genres, 'Science Fiction', 'Sci-Fi') where Genres like '%Science Fiction%' 5. Press F5 to execute the statement and the

    Web site broadcast

    Hi All! We are a cinema museum in Canada. We have a Mediaroom where researchers can screen our collection of films using Emby. we hace an account for visitors wher the librairian gives the access codes. We would like to integrate the videos on our in Emby server to our website, for the broadcast of movies that we have the rights for web broadcast. This will prevent the duplication of movies for web broadcast on a separate server, but rather have Emby to broadcast at a lower resolution the videos we have in our Mediaroom for our web sites. We have a museum database softwa
  12. Let's talk about a real full migration and the separation of metadata and mediafiles. I know i know, you system architects of emby have had discussions and thoughts about this topic enough i guess...But i want to ask you to maybe rethink one or two things about the structure of emby. But hold on, before you think: great, another non-programming average Joe who thinks he knows things better than we do... just let me explain. The fact that i am here right now, writing this post about emby is because: i love it As a long time kodi-user i instantly fell in love with emby the moment i inst

  17. Hello I'm new to emby, looks like a good software. I was a plex user for a long time and I jumped ship because of this having to login fiasco. This maybe far fetched but I am curious to comments. I have plex and emby working right now and I am wondering if there is a way to share or move the preferences from the plex DB. What I mean is the prefs that plex keeps to know what I have watched and not watched. Having a big media folder it would be cool to be able to move these preferences. any thoughts?
  18. Have a windows 10 PC running my Emby server. When I right-click on my emby server icon in the system tray, I get "Browse Library", "Configure Emby", "Emby Premiere". Clicking on any of those options just takes me to my emby dashboard. Restarted the server, re-booted the PC, still the same. Can't tell you what version I am running as I can't get into my database settings. Has anyone had this problem before, and if so, how did you solve it ? *Edited* I have re-installed emby server, still no change. I kept all the cache, etc when uninstalling as I don't want to upset the familly and h

    Emby Server Problem - No Media Displayed

    We have had Emby running happily for a couple of months, but yesterday it got itself into a bit of a state. It will not display any media, via the browser, iOS app or Apple TV. I looked at the log file and there are repeated instances of the following: *** Error Report *** Version: Command line: /Applications/EmbyServer.app/Contents/MacOS/EmbyServer.dll Operating system: Unix 64-Bit OS: True 64-Bit Process: True User Interactive: True Processor count: 4 Program data path: /Users/serveruser/.config/emby-server Application directory: /Applications/EmbyServer.app/Contents/Ma
  20. Sorry if this is a repost, but I haven't been able to find an answer anywhere.... All I need is a simple explanation of how to refresh my entire database in one go (if possible), and whether this can be achieved by a simple restart, an option in the menu, or by deleting a cache folder? Clean install? Or other method? Obviously I'm new to all this... My problem arises from originally having MB set up wrong, and now that it's configured the right way, I'm still left with some oddly incorrect metadata and am trying to find a way to simply refresh (rewrite) it all. For example, all of my "sort

Is there any way to pass this structure as an option or hint to the database scraper with variable substitutions like %D %y %n, etc? If this was asked before please reply with a link to the post.

  22. I did a search because I was sure that this request had already been made but I couldn't find anything. Anyway, I would like to request the ability to use a backend database such as MariaDB (MySQL clone) or PostgreSQL instead of just SQLite. I can see this being a huge advantage for users with extremely large collections as the fetch times should be faster. Also, it would allow me to consolidate one more database into my existing PostgreSQL install. I know this would take some restructuring of the current backend but in the long run would give you one more leg up on our competitor as I

    Emby repeating loses Database

    Hi there, i have a problem with Emby Server in Version . After a while (i could not yet observe the exact period) Emby "cleans up" the entire Database, even if the files have not been changed/moved, they disappear from the Database.

    Copying the Kodi database - help

    I have copied the local Kodi/XBMC database between same version (Kodi 15->Kodi 15) boxes before and now with Emby I don't seem to be able to do that - or rather I can but then Emby still kicks off an initial or incremental sync (depending on if I have fast sync enabled) which is problematic for me in that it usually freezes or the sync error occurs and then it starts over on the next run. Very slow process. I should add these are Windows 10 boxes and I am doing this with the default Confluence skin running and screensaver set to none. 2 Minix Neo Z-64 Windows 10 units. Kodi 15.2.

  25. Hi, I´m using Emby for Kodi with the current version: Emby for Kodi 2.2.49 OSMC (Kodi 17 beta 16.8-170) and Windows Kodi 17.0-BETA3 (Oct 4 2016) I have the following problem since I´m using the Kodi 17 beta: IMDb ratings are not synced with my local database. Nether in OSMC (beta) nor in Windows (beta). Therefore I assume this problem is connected to the Emby-Addon? Other reason could be missing addons because of beta status? I would appreciate to get your feedback on this.
