Hello! I manage a linux media server for my sister. She lives in a remote location and only has broadband internet. I built a linux server with emby on it with the intention of giving her an external USB drive from time to time with new content. I can only access this machine via SSH, but within the local network, Emby is working like a champ. My question is, how can I add the external USB to the Emby library via ssh? I tried to symlink the content into the existing library directory, but it doesn't appear to be working. The local hard drive is about 1TB and already full of content and the external hard drive is about 5 TB. I have it mounted in the same root directory as the current content. Any tips would be great! Thanks!
Complete Linux noob here. I am trying to learn a bit about raspberry Pi and linux, linux based file systems, permissions, terminal commands etc, and decided the project I want to start on is a emby server on a raspberry pi I can use for travel, that will be attached to a 2tb external hdd containing a small portion of my home media library. However I am encountering numerous issues. I was wondering if someone has possibly made a guide on getting Emby Server up and running on a Raspberry Pi? I am encountering all sorts of issues that I am fairly certain have to do with file permissions. This is what I have so far: most recent version of Raspbian Buster installed and fully updated at time of writing; newest stable version of Emby Server(126.96.36.199 for armhf); small test library(2 movies and 2 shows with a couple episodes and all images and metadata from my home server)located at home/pi/embymedia/(i tried to connect the ext hdd but emby server would not see it when adding library folders, i think maybe because it is NTFS file system but not sure). If there is a guide somewhere can someone please direct me to it? If not, these are some of the issues I am currently experiencing: 1- When browsing library in server dashboard, no images display for my media, even though they are located in the appropriate folders. 2- Playback Error- No compatible streams are currently available. Please try again later or contact your system administrator for details. 3- Cannot get Emby server to recognize usb hdd when adding folders to library At the completion of this project i hope to upgrade my status of linux noob to halfway novice but any help will be appreciated in my endeavor!
Healthed posted a topic in LinuxI have Emby on a nuc that is headless (no monitor). Ubuntu 18 Bionic Is there (or where is) the linux config file to tell Emby Server the paths to folders I want Emby to serve. do I need to share out these folders first, since it is on the same disk partition as Emby? I'd prefer not to have to share them, since they are are the same box, but if there is a reason to do it (besides not being able to find the Emby config file), I will. Thanks.
