xd003 posted a topic in General/WindowsI have hosted my emby server on a vps and using rclone mount as my library . I am currently renaming and sorting all my content . Just had this very simple question I currently have 2 choices Either i can scrap all metadata directly in my google drive using tiny media manager or other tools and don't let emby fetch any metadata. So each TV show & Movie will have its own nfo , posters and everything in its respective drive folder itself . In short emby would read metadata individually for each folder The other option is i can not scrap any metadata externally . Just rename them properly following emby naming convention using any tool and while adding that library , let emby fetch all the metadata for it ( which i beleive it stores locally in /var/lib/emby/metadata ) So my main question is which option do you recommend me ? What would give better performance and quicker loading of metadata ? ( Locally or mounted drive ) On another note - Assuming i have metadata in my source itself , is there any option to ignore the metadata in source library - google drive ie the ones within individual movies and tv shows folder and force use the emby metadata fetched by emby itself ?
I'd like to understand the workings of sync before I fully commit to using Emby. Basically I'm looking for an alternative to Google Play for my music and the fact Emby can handle video is a plus. I've read as much content on sync as I can handle but haven't been able to form a coherent understanding of how sync works. At home that's not an issue since all my devices have access to my network server where Emby is installed. I'm concerned strictly with using Emby to stream content when I'm away from home. The wiki says my content is not moved to the cloud. That's great since I have close to 90 GB of audio. So, when I play tracks on my phone and I'm away from home does the Emby app handle it seamlessly or do I have to sync something? How will the content be served to my phone? Does Emby make a temporary copy of my audio files to the cloud prior to serving them to my phone? If so is there any lag? How long does it remain on the cloud? Are there any limits such as the amount that can be uploaded? Can hardware play a role? Like the platform of the Emby server, the router, web service, connection speed etc? Please be as technical and thorough as possible. Thanks!
Hi All, Firstly, thank you for any help you are able to provide. I've been trying to get this working for 4 days and it's driving me crazy. I'm new to Linux so please bear with me. I have a AWS instance running Ubuntu 18 and a virtual Google Drive mounted to /gdrive using rclone which works fine. I can navigate through the files in the /gdrive folder using the Linux terminal as expected, great. The issue I'm facing is when I navigate to http://localhost:8096 and chose the "Add media library" option, it cannot see the folder /gdrive. If I then un-mount my google drive from the gdrive folder, emby library can now see the folder and adds it to the library. So in a nutshell, emby can't see the folder /gdrive when rclone is mounted inside it. I have used the following commands to ensure the folder is readable by everyone, and changed to owner to the emby user, but still no luck. chown -R emby:emby /gdrive chown emby /gdrive chmod 777 /gdrive ls -la shows the following drwxrwxrwx 2 emby emby 4096 Dec 6 15:42 gdrive. It must be a permission issue, but I can't think what it could be. If anyone could help, I would be so grateful. Thanks, Kelvin
