  1. Hi all Half a year ago, I moved my emby instance from my NAS to a seperate machine (Win10) to get better performance. However, as I'm using emby as a DVR and my library got quite ... ähm ... "comprehensive" by now, I also upgraded my NAS and seperated media server and data storage. I'm using SMP paths in my libraries to add the shared folders to emby (location = \\SERVER\FOLDER1). I had a power outage today and (re-)noticed an odd behaviour of emby: as my media server is a lot faster in booting up as my NAS, accessing the library failed when emby service started. As a result, some of my libraries where just gone from the admin interface and in the remaining ones, nearly all the entries were missing. Restoring my nightly backup did fail as well (I experienced the already known bug with multiple entries after restore) ending up with me deleting all libraries and setting them up again. Yes, one could think that the settings were damaged by the shutdown, but I already experienced the same behaviour when I shut down the NAS and media server in parallel a few month ago. Did you experience something similar in the past? If so, it seems that emby doesn't destinguish between "non accessible" and "non existent" when accessing libraries. It might then be a good idea to catch that error and allow some access retries or even "halt" / "pause" a library that can't be accessed instead of just deleting the entries or even the whole library. If not, it might just be my setup and I would appreciate any tips on how to change it to avoid a repetition of that... Cheers!

  4. Hello, i have this music collection where the folder structure is the that. artist - artist name and box set name - disk name - flac file the problem is te album name or flac file dont appears on library. same budy can tell me why?
  5. Hi I just added my library from downloaded youtube channels to emby, but it tries to add every video to a season and is really buggy. pic 1 I tried the library type mixed, home videos and pictures and musicvideo. This happens only with 7 channels the others are how it should be pic 2. I have one folder called Youtube and for every channel a subfolder. I havent added anything to the videonames like S01E02 or sth How can i turn off season sorting for the whole library Thx
  6. Hi I have one library for my downloaded youtube videos with several folders (for every youtube channel one) Because they are youtube videos there is no metadata from moviedb or other and one frame is taken as prev. Very warped with the default view. Because of that i went to setting and choose the view "thumb" image 1 But this is not used for the subfolders for each channel and i dont want to go through 100ths of folders and set it in every folder manually. Can i set this as default for the whole library. The second thing is do i need to click sth that the prev images are rendert? because some of the videos do have prevs but others not and it isnt rendering at the moment. Thanks
  7. I am in a process of moving my libraries from NAS to Mac mini. I have about 25 libraries and it is a pain in the *** to update the location of each library. Can you please add a simple way to bulk edit libraries to update locations?
  8. This is a weird one. TV shows- no matter how many times I rescan it, do not show all the seasons for any TV series I have. You can see the number of unplayed episodes but it simply doesn't list the seasons. It does this with all my tv shows. Take for example 30 rock. I have all the seasons and episodes available, and emby clearly sees the episodes as it shows 135 unplayed. However if you open it up, it shows season 7 available and then shows the season 1 episodes for 'next up'. Is there a setting I've totally missed or is there something I'm not doing correctly? I've rescanned and re-added my library paths multiple times. It does this for every single tv series I have. It either shows one random season or none. The weird thing was for a long time I unknowingly had tv shows as "Mixed Content" and it wasn't until I changed it to TV Shows that this problem occurred. Any help is very appreciated.
  9. Emby is far better, in every way, than Plex. An improvement would be a drop down option from the Menu bar to Scan the Library (videos added to my source folder for the library don't automatically appear in Emby, so I have to scan to load them).
  10. Hi, guys, Do you have (or plan, or accept) a feature that can watch a folder for changes? I mean, I have a download folder, to which my downloads are put. However I need to do a full library rescan every time I want to watch that particular movie. Since I have a fairly good connection, the library scan time is almost larger than the current download procedure. So it would be a very nice to have feature to have this folder watched, and processed, like as the whole scan does it. But in this case of course there won't be neccessary to scan all the other folders, so it's a win-win situation. What do guys think? Thanks, danergo
  11. Hi, i have a pc with win 10 and emby 4.4.3 running on it. There are 5 HDDs (V:/ - Z:/) and each of them contains a "movie" directory and a "tv-shows" directory. All directorys are read to the library exept one, it's W:/Movies. W:/Tv-Shows is read without problems. I've tried to read a single Movie from W:/Movies (All movies are listet in the dropdown menu when i add this directory) without success. I've detached and reattched W:/Movies several times. I've uninstalled and reinstalled emby server from my pc without success. What's the problem here and how can it be solved? @cayars
  12. I’d like to be able to set a library to filter its contents, rather than including everything in a folder. in particular I’d like to be able to filter by language, so I can have one library that contains only TV shows with English audio, and another that has only shows with Russian audio, and I can have both pointed at the same folder (containing some English, some Russian, and some dual audio). In another topic Luke confirmed that filters for language will be in the next release, but as far as I know there’s no way to permanently set a filter for library contents. Searching with filters is ok when I’m looking for something, but way too cumbersome for my wife and kids. A solution that lets them just open the Russian library (without keeping duplicates of all my dual-audio content) would be really cool. Thanks!

    Library Filter By Language

    I would suggest to add the possibility to filter the library by languages, i.e. - Allow to filter for the audio and/or subtitle language. Regards Max ( Request taken from a former github issue: https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby/issues/1782#event-982356301 )
  14. Good night, my Emby Server stopped adding new movies and series to the library, even running manual manually it won't. Please help me. thank yo
  15. Hello I manage to add a public, so not password protected share of a samba server as a library folder, which seems to work just fine. \\servers-hostname-or-address\sharename It took me a while to figure out that I really have to use windows style network share annotation BTW, despite anything here is Unix-ish, including the docker host and the Emby docker image.. so smb:// is simply not understood... Perhaps It would be great the documentation mentioned that somehow. If told where I'd not hesitate to contribute that tiny little However, I'd like my Emby Server to store metadata as NFO, and thumbnails along with my media files. So that obviously requires write access. For obvious reasons I'd not like to share my media file directories writeable without any password protection at all. So how would I enter the URL with username and password? Or does Emby even offer a better way to identify itself to a windows like samba server? I don't have any active directory or anything. It is really the dumbest and least advanced version of a samba config I could manage to get a modern samba version to agree on running with. TIA for any hints. Casaper PS: Currently I have that working but quirky and not ideally as SMB-Shares mounted natively to the docker host system and then linked to emby server with additional volumes.
  16. I would like to have the option to view and play the Libraries as they are stored on the server: by Folders. It seems that it would be a great feature. I would prefer to use it. I've made also a similar request for the Android app.
  17. Why It's troublesome to manage bottom up permissions (User -> Access -> Folder) and personally I think that a top down (User <- Access <- Folder) approach would be better (or both). I understand that changing access permission structure might be troublesome (or not desired by everyone) so I'd like to suggest something else instead Feature I think it would be a good idea to have a setting in the "Libraries" that allows you to make a folder hidden by default. That way when you add a new user you don't have to worry to much about them having access to all the folders and it improves user management. It's a good solution for servers that have a lot of users to manage. This isn't a must have but more of "Quality of life" feature. How These changes would have to be implemented: 1. Add the setting to the Libraries under "Advanced options" -> "Library Settings" 2. Disable "Enable access to all libraries" setting in the user access settings if any of the libraries (for that user) are hidden, and enable all but the hidden library. OR alternatively... disable "Enable access to all libraries" (so that the list of libraries shows up) for all users if any folders are hidden, then the hidden folder should not be enabled on the access list.

    Music libraries are merged

    Newbie here, just transitioning from Plex. Forgive me if this has previously been discussed, I have searched the forum but I haven't found anything. I have multiple music folders, Albums, Singles, Live Concert etc. I've created them all as separate libraries. But under the 'Artist' or 'Album Artist' tabs they all get merged together. How can I ungroup these, making the separate libraries?
  19. Hi there everyone, I found a relatively older thread in this forum about this problem related to some Synology issue. I did a fresh install of the latest version today and it doesn't seem to detect changes. I have 10 movies and 4 series quite a small library. I added a new episode and a new movie. Not that much of a deal but I'd like to know if it's still an issue or if other people are experiencing the same. Cheers.
  20. Morning, I have a library setup as "home video", such that it doesn't try to do any magic with the files (i.e. TV show organisation). If I have a folder with a single video file in it, it ignores the folder and just shows the file in the main list. Example (expected view): Folder 1 > 10 videos Folder 2 > 5 videos Folder 3 > 1 video (called test.mp4) Folder 4 > 5 videos Will display as: Folder 1 Folder 2 Folder 4 test.mp4 Is there a setting / reason it ignores folders if they only have one file? Thanks
  21. Español: Buenas. Estoy comenzando a utilizar la API, cosa que se me ha hecho muy interesante. En contexto, cuando se crea un usuario, tiene acceso a todas las librerías por default, para eso modifico sus políticas, por ejemplo: Aquí le estoy diciendo que excluya esas dos subcarpetas, en el parámetro "ExcludedSubFolders". Pero me gustaría saber, si hay alguna forma en que al momento de crear el usuario haya algún parámetro que por default haga que NO tengan acceso a ninguna librería, y después yo pueda asignar a tal usuario a qué librerías SI podría acceder? English Good. I am starting to use the API, which has been very interesting for me. In context, when a user is created, he has access to all the libraries by default, for that I modify his policies, for example: Here I am typing that exclude those two subfolders, in the "ExcludedSubFolders" parameter. But I would like to know, if there is any way that at the moment of creating the user there is some parameter that by default makes them NOT have access to any library, and then, I can assign such a user to which libraries he or she could access? Thanks! @@chef @@rechigo

    Scan only a specific subdirectory

    Hi, I have a bash script that can trigger a library scan for a specific library (Movies or TVShows). However, I would like to know if it is possible to trigger a scan for a specific subdirectory. For example, I have this structure for TV Shows: TVShows/<TV SHOW NAME>/<SEASON>/EPISODE I would like to trigger a scan only for a specific <TV SHOW NAME> directory. Is it possible? Thank you in advance.
  23. It would be nice to be able to specify default options for library creation. I have to add a lot of libraries and on every single library, I have to manually set all the checkbox. This could either be solved by: Globally defined default options for new libraries Template libraries which could be used to clone from
  24. Here are my library thumbs. Edit: GDrive link to current icon set. More may be added in the future. These are all black and white. Feel free to modify with colors as you so desire. I activate a "Christmas" library during the christmas season, for obvious reasons. I just apply as "Primary" and "Thumb" and they've worked great for me. Blend in nicely with the flat icon style used elsewhere within Emby. And they're attractive across all my devices (Android, iPhone, webUI, and AndroidTV) computerprep library thumbs.zip
  25. Server 4.3.10 windows. Trying to create a library of tv shows, using multiple folders but in clients says no items in said library. I am only using emby on my LAN, using wmc client (though i get same no items in library on windows browser client and samsung tv clients) I have tried refresh library, no joy. All folders are local folders on server machine (win7 wmc) if any additional info needed, let me know.
