  1. Hello, I have movies on my Google Drive. Now I would like to integrate this directly into Emby without loading it locally onto my device. I have mounted google drive on my Ubuntu 20.04 server via rclone. But if I want to create a new media folder, then I cannot select the folder where I mounted Google Drive. does anyone have experience with this and can help me? thanks!

    Emby & Google Drive

    Hello, I would like to express 2 problems that I encounter with Emby using Google Drive as storage. The first problem encountered is that emby seems to send a lot of requests or consume a lot of data, because I easily reach the quota in recent days. My 2nd problem is that by closing rclone after a certain time some of my libraries no longer display its content due to the fact that rclone is closed and the content is no longer accessible. I am concerned that reloading data once rclone reconnect requests a lot of data. I would like to understand then which options I should select when creating a

    elmby premiere + google drive

    Boa tarde pessoal, tudo bom? Estou a procura de uma forma de poder fazer um streaming dos filmes que eu baixo direto do google drive. Contratando o serviço premier eu consigo linkar direto com o gdrive ou mesmo assim eu preciso de um vps? Obrigado pela ajuda
  4. I'm experimenting with the addition of Google Drive, mounted via rclone. I don't have any problems there, as far as accessing. But when I add the new path, it seems like emby is going to run an ffprobe/ffmpeg analysis (I see both processes running, which seems odd but that's a separate thing). Anyway, people that are doing this, did you just let it do it? Otherwise, what settings are you using to minimize that. It's going to be pretty obnoxious if Emby is going to want to deep scan every file on the path like that (as it means I'll effectively pull everything back down as it gets put in gdrive
  5. Hello, I've been using emby for a couple of months now it's everything that i expected and more. (only missing a subtitles edit option) The only real issue i have with emby is that i'm very quickly hitting my API limit of Gdrive and i've been struggling with this since day 1. I have: - Gsuite unlimited (exclusively being used for emby) - 40TB Split over all Library's (11 library's in total) - ~80% of my media = Hevc 10 bit MKV - ~275GB Media uploading to Gdrive every 24 hours true rclone with encryption - PC Server is running on : Int
  6. Hey, I am using Emby for a while now and I am wondering if there is a way to let emby access my video Files which are stored on Google Drive and Google Suite? It should access the files and stream them to my TV. Is this possible or do I need an Addon for that? Regards
  7. Thanks to @@cayars and @@ebr, I've successfully installed and configured the Google Drive Plug-in. Now I'm trying to figure out how to get started with Cloud Sync. Under my "Movie Library", I have a Folder: "Family Share" where I've placed movies that I want synced to Google Drive so I can share it with my remote family members. How do I go about syncing the movies in this folder to Google Drive? I've scanned the various documentation for Sync - https://support.emby.media/support/solutions/articles/44001161893-sync-introduction. It felt like the documentations communicated WHAT was pos

    Integrating With Google Drive

    Hello all. I have about 1tb of media (tv shows, movies, etc) saved on my Google drive. I want to use my old Mac mini as my "server" the only thing is I don't want to have all of the media saved on my Mac due to storage restrictions. I want to have all of the media on my Google drive but I want to use the EMBY app to "stream" it. I mainly want this so it can let me sort my media such as playlist and stuff, also keeping track of movies and TV shows I have watched. My main question is will EMBY do all this for me?

    Setting up Google Drive Plugin Fails

    I have followed the howto multiple times and run into the same problem everytime. After I allow the Emby app and paste the Code into the screen attached I get the never ending circle.
  10. GPlayer


    Currently I am using the below rclone mount command with emby but from when I click play it takes around 50 seconds to start playing the video. This is around the same amount of time it would take for it to download the buffer specified in the command. I am wondering whether the buffer command works with emby? I was under the impression it downloads the buffer once it has started streaming. rclone mount --allow-other --bind 2a01:xxxx:1:fd0d::4 --log-file /opt/rclone/logs/xxxxlog -v --dir-cache-time 96h --vfs-cache-max-age 12h --vfs-read-chunk-size 128M --buffer-size 3G --timeout 1h gdrive4
  11. Good afternoon, I need some help. Syncing a movie or episode to Google Drive no longer has the subtitle option available. Thanks in advance
  12. I already use Emby Server for Windows. I have tried all methods even uninstall emby and reinstall. but still google drive can't be used, even though the emby sync folder has appeared on my drive. Is there something wrong with what I'm working on? The sync menu does not appear at all

    Cloud share with GSuite Account?

    So, I was thinking that cloud share would solve some of the problems a few of my remote users have, and it's so nice there is a plug in for it. But it doesn't seem to support Gsuite, which I have b/c for ~$12 unlimited storage. So now I'm wondering how to make this work. To be clear, I don't think just using rclone or some way of mounting GSuite as a local drive is the right way to go, as Emby would not then stream directly from the cloud location (with pre-transcoded copies even). So does anyone have any thoughts?

    Google Drive wont work

    I followed the guide and some forum qs on how to setup the google drive app. I did everything and got to the point of 'add user' (the last step). I've done this like 20 times and it does all the steps as described, but once I return to the page to put in the password key it just...circles endlessly. I let it go 20 mins. I reinstalled the plugin, restarted the emby app several times. No success. Please help. (Yes I have premiere)
  15. Hi, I have a Team Drive and configured on rclone with encryption. I had to create 2 drives and mount for both Movies and TV Shows. Because i couldn't manage to mount the each folder on Emby Server. It showed the encrypted ones so when i select them it couldn't read. How can i do that with one encrypted drive mounted and 2 folders mounted on Emby Server?
  16. My Emby app (version 3.0.64) is consistently not pulling the video file from the Google Drive sync location, after the file has been sync'd to Google Drive via the Sync function (I've verified that the file exists on Google Drive and is playable through separate means). I'm running server version stable but have seen this problem on earlier versions (v4.x.x.x) as well. On my Emby server (Ubuntu x64), I see the following happening when I view network traffic through the 'iftop' command. The Emby server shows an incoming stream of data from a Google domain (presumably the Google Dri
  17. If I have converted videos in the cloud, am I streaming directly from the cloud or is it still passing through my server but just doesn't have to be transcoded? So if I remotely connect to Emby and start a video, does the video come directly to me from Google or does it pass through Emby? Also, will emby use the cloud version of a video if I am on same LAN as Emby server (home)? Thanks
  18. Prior to updating, I could see all the sync jobs for Google Drive (and devices like iOS) listed in Settings > Download & Sync > Sync Jobs. After updating to, the page is empty and doesn't allow me to see what I've already configured to sync. The expectation is that all the sync jobs that occurred prior to the update would still be listed here. I'm concerned that sync jobs that were set to "automatically download new content" (like when a new episode for a TV show appears) will no longer upload since the jobs are not listed. Any help appreciated. Let me know if you need mo
  19. Hello, I'm coming from Plex due to their abrupt decision to end support for Cloud Servers. I have about 4TB hosted on Google Drive, and as of 11/30 will not be able to access it. Someone mentioned "Emby" as a Plex alternative, so I've been scoping it out. Hearing that Cloud Servers was an Emby "Premiere" feature and you don't offer a trial for a few hours or days, I paid $5 for the month and installed Emby to see how it's playback from Google Drive compared to Plex's. I've been tooling around with Emby for the last 2+ hours, frustrated with not being able to access my Cloud content after

    Google Drive - MENU Specific

    Hello good afternoon, Is it possible to create separate menus so that files uploaded to Google Drive are REPRODUCED before the local file that is in the emby? How could I do that? The preference is to play the media in Google Drive, not the local server. Thank you Long live Emby

    Cloud Sync not work

    hello In the advertisement for emby premiere appears the cloud sync I just signed to use cloud sync I made the correct link for google drive, but I can not get it to work on emby.
  23. Set up sync with Google Drive. Worked fine with a TV show and AppleTV so I synced a movie but the movie won't load in the AppleTV app. I select the thumbnail and get a white screen and spinning disc. For movies not sync'd the movie information page comes up immediately. Looking at the log it appears that the movie's file on Google Drive is not found (see below). I tried it with a different movie, only I checked to see if it worked on AppleTV before the sync. It did. Then I sync'd and now I just get the white screen with title and spinning disc. Any ideas? 2017-10-20 04:24:26.298 Error Http
  24. Hello How do I make play only the media file that is in the google drive? Please see the screens, I can't find where this file.
  25. Hello, i am trying to cloud sync (google drive) the latest 50 tv show episodes which were added to my library. I tried setting it up via "tv shows" -> "latest" --> "sync", but this sync job does not include episodes, which are added AFTER the sync job was created. It just syncs the latest 50 episodes which were there at the sync job creation and then does nothing. Plex can do this and i thought emby could, too. Does anyone know how to do this with emby? Cheers Jan
