    Setting up library

    Ok, i've posted a lot over the last few days as I set up emby for the first time. (migrating from Plex) Today's question: I'm running the server on Nvidia Shield. I'm managing the server on my mac laptop. The media, about 2500 movies is located on a hard drive plugged into the shield. Now, as i set up this main library, I am editing ALL the metadata. I manually enter a "critic rating" then sort by critic rating, thus i get the 2500 movies in order from what I think are masterpieces to what I think are, well, odd junk that i sorta like. As I do this on the mac, shouldn't what I see on
  2. Hello, Still quite new to using Emby with Docker. Below is the line from my container run for the configuration folder. The container creates the folder. I also tested prior by having the folders already created locally. However the container is still creating the folder within itself as far as I know. I also have a Sonarr setup where I'm using a similar line of code to have it put its configuration files in the below successfully. I just wanted to have all of my containers configuration files uniformly accessible in the same location incase I want to check logs
  3. Hi @Luke & @ebr I wanted to know if there is a beta update of the Emby for macOS app that supports M1 Macs. If not, do you have a rough estimate of when it will be updated on the macOS App Store? Thanks, Braeden

    Subtitles not downloading on MacOS

    Hello, Although scheduled to run each night. The process to download any new subtitles is set to run, and does. However, it doesn't download all the subtitles, in fact it fails with the following message: ffmpeg subtitle extraction failed for file:"/Users/David/emby-server/cache/temp/23f0ce6d-0784-4cf4-afe8-dc84a7fd885f.txt" to /Users/David/emby-server/cache/subtitles I have noticed a number of the TV Show's I have on my NAS (That is connected to Emby) doesn't have subtitles. Does anyone have any ideas how I can fix this? Thanks
  5. I'm trying out Emby for the first time. Is there any way to put beats per minute (BPM) info into Emby for music tracks? It's something that I use a lot in my current setup. Emby looks promising and I hope there's some way to include this info for music.

    [PSA] MacOS system requirements for 4.3.x

    Posting this in case it helps someone avoid the issue I had. Emby Server for MacOS 4.3.x requires MacOS 10.13 -- this is a change from Emby Server 4.2.x which could run on MacOS 10.12. The release notes don't mention this (https://emby.media/community/index.php?/blog/1/entry-477-emby-server-43-released/) Even worse, the Wiki lists the requirement as MacOS 10.6.3 (https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/System-requirements) This is disappointing as I'm not the first person to point this out but the release notes and Wiki haven't been updated. Consider this a friendly nudge to

    Force shutdown

    Hi I noticed that my PC stopped responding after a few hours. Emby is stops playing a stream but cannot be closed. It only helps to press the on / off switch for a long time to switch off the PC. Is it an Emby Problem?

    Versión 4.5.20 on MacOS

    I see there is a version 5.4.20 for macOS, yet the blog that describes the changes included in this version only states that this is to address some issues on Windows. Is there any reason to upgrade to this version on a Mac?

    Big Sur support

    Hi, Just a quick check to see if Emby is fully compatible with Big Sur before I update my server? Thanks in advance!
  11. My Emby server is Version on a Mac Mini. I keep Emby player open on the Mac Mini and remote control the player using the player app from various other devices -- my Android phone, and Android tablet, my Macbook, my wife's PC laptop. About once a week or so, when I click the "Play On" icon on a remote player, nothing shows in the list of available players to control. It just says "Play On" with nothing below it. If this happens on, for example, my phone, I'll go to my MacBook and try from there but get the same result. In other words, it affects all players on all devices when it ha

    Move from macOS to Linux

    Hi there , i think about to move from my mac mini to a Intel NUC with Linux. Now i have a few Questions : is there a clean way to backup restore all settings without rebuilding the Library? I think about a 10th Generation i5 NUC will this be a good choice even for transcoding? (Max 2 streams) besides emby is FHEM,iobroker and a TVheadend Server running. Server only - no tv attached which OS would you prefer ? Ubuntu? Debian? Thanks for tipps

    ALAC/m4a files playback error

    Hello everybody, since I started using Emby (2-3 months now), I've never been able to play my ALAC/m4a hires audio files. Every time I try to play a file, the "no compatible streams" error comes up. This happens on macOS version of Emby (last update), on the webOS version, but it doesn't happen on my iOS device. Think I've read any thread on the matter, to no avail. Thanks for any help on this Logs follow --- hardware_detection-63721763186.txt embyserver.txt
  14. It's been a while Just got Emby working on my 2018 Mac Mini which is more or less dedicated to being a media server. Works well but when someone starts playing a video that needs transcoding the CPU ramps up a ton for about two minutes for FFMPEG to transcode the file and have it ready. This has been the case since I first turned it on, starting with 'Enable Hardware Transcoding' set to 'yes' and no other options touched. I realized that hypothetically I should be able to access whatever QuickSync/T2 based hardware acceleration this thing has via whatever FFMPEG Emby is using, so I che
  15. The oddest thing happens. I see multiple entries of the same library multiple times and have no idea on how to get rid of that. Anyone with an idea?
  16. After I start recording from an M3U source, wait a bit, and then go to Recordings and play the video, it plays fine for about 20 minutes and then Emby Server and my computer become largely unresponsive. My computer, in particular, loses all network connections; many applications will not run or exhibit strange behavior; it won't even shut down properly, so I have to turn off the power. Note that this procedure produces the same problem every time, regardless of how long I let the video record before playing and whether throttling is enabled or not. Playing videos for which recording

    Unable to connect TV

    I’m trying to connect my Panasonic TV to the Emby server which is running on an iMac with macOS Catalina. Despite following the installation instruction I’m not succeeding and I don’t know why. My set-up has both the TV and the iMac on the same network running on 5GHz. I’ve tried moving them both to 2.4 GHz but it makes no difference. The TV is using a fixed IP address and I've added this address to the White List. From the iMac I can see the TV on the network and the Firewall is open. The TV DLNA settings recognises the MAC address of the iMac and is permitted to access that addre
  18. I've seen some helpful posts regarding this by some advanced users, notably @@skidmarks and @@Tur0k but I'm having no luck. Anyone else successfully doing this with PIA? My setup is: * Emby server on MacOS 10.12.6 Sierra and also running PIA 1.1.1 * Internet is cable to an ISP-supplied modem, WAN port to Asus RT-AC68U, ethernet to the Emby server. * Emby server has a manually-assigned IP via the Asus GUI to its MAC address. * Emby remote port is 8096 via http When my server is not connected to the PIA VPN, I can scan the server's public-facing IP (from another comp

    Album artist sort not ignoring "the"

    I could swear this was working correctly before v4.x but I could be mistaken... Please see screenshot below -- I'm sorting by Album Artist and note that artists starting with "the" are being sorted by "the." It looks like system.xml is configured correctly (I haven't changed defaults): <SortRemoveWords> <string>the</string> <string>a</string> <string>an</string> </SortRemoveWords> Thanks!
  21. Server: MacOS Sierra 10.12.6, v Client: Moto G5 Plus, Android 8.1.0, v 3.0.31 This applies to music playback. Scenario 1: When I connect the Android app to remote control the Chrome web player running on the server, initially everything is fine. But if I leave everything idle for a period, say a few hours, then pick up my phone again to play something different, the "now playing" display either doesn't update or is not visible at all. Sometimes the remote-controlled player actually plays in response anyway even though there's no visual indication on the Android, sometimes not

    Can not find emby server

    I have been trying to find my Server via the Emby LG app, manually or select server. But can not be found. It's strange that Plex works fine without issue, I'm just here testing the waters for a possible migration. WebOS 1.4 on 2014 UHD LG TV MacOS 10.14.2 Emby Server version : 3.5.3 Download the app from LG store without issue, used the link process several times, logged into Emby. Look forward to any suggestions

    Question about my SSL cert

    Hello all, A friend of mine reached out to me the other day to let me know that they could no longer connect to my emby server. It had been running fine, so I was puzzled. When I went and looked at the settings, it turns out that the server no longer appears to be running over HTTPS, only on HTTP. I don't even see any option for HTTPS other than under Expert->Advanced where I can set the external HTTPS port. I am currently on the 3.5 beta. Everything works fine right now on HTTP, but I would much prefer to be running over HTTPS again. Anyone have any thought or sugge

    Sync Stuck

    Good evening I've recently tried Emby having become a little disillusioned with Plex. I've set up Emby to use my Dropbox account for syncing. Emby appears to convert the file into the selected quality but then it becomes stuck with the dashboard showing a running task of 'Cloud & Folder Sync' which goes no further than 3%. At the same time, the sync section of Emby shows the synced item as 'Ready to transfer'. I've tried cancelling the sync task and setting this up again but it doesn't change anything. Thanks for any help!
  25. Working on proof-of-concept testbed using available hardware at hand. Decades of pro IT experience, but total noob with Emby for home use. Emby Server is running on a Mac mini (Mid 2010), 2.4G Core 2 Duo, 16GB RAM, its stock internal HDD (320GB 5400 RPM), with an external drive to house recorded media. Recorded mp4 (m4v) media streams perfectly on all devices, no worries there. Added HDHR Connect to experiment with streaming Live TV, it set up very smoothly and displays 32 available local OTA channels. SD channels and subchannels stream just fine with default settings, using f
