  1. Hi, so I recently encountered this when I was about to play a video on my Shield TV and it wouldn't play. I then tried the same thing with Jellyfin without any success there too. I'm unsure if this is related to permission privileges or whatnot and I don't know how to go about giving Emby the correct permissions. I then checked the info of the video files from two separate shows, where one show displays the info but the other one doesn't. I found that the one which didn't work with Emby didn't display any information about the episode, and I've tried the same episode from another source but it's the same issue. I'm using Sonarr for downloading and renaming/organizing files if that's good to know.
  2. No Media info from Blu-Ray folders (BDMV). Metadata are all fine, but none of my Blu-Ray folder rips have any Media Info. In this example you can see there is no Media info: The above folder contains the two sub folders: \BDMV \CERTIFICATE And here is the same movie in a Matroska version with complete Media info: All my mkv movies and ripped DVD films (VIDEO_TS folders) have complete Media Info. I have tried to refresh complete/partly (via Metadata manager). I have tried to remove the whole parent folder from Media library and add/scan it again. Is this a bug in the server or is there something else I can try? Emby for Windows Server version 3.0.5818.0 (running on WHS 2011)

    UI problems/suggestions

    Hi guys, A couple things with server 3.2.36: There's an aspect ratio problem with thumbnails for TV episodes in both the Next Up and More From Season X parts of the Emby Theater screens (it also happens with the web UI). This started with 3.2.35 I think. Also, I like the new UI for movies. It's clear and smart looking, and I like the new clickable genres, etc. But please bring back the mediainfo stuff for movies. I like knowing the video and audio codec information before I click play. Finally, back on TV again, please bring back the details screen for episodes. Thanks.

Platform: NUC i5,16GB RAM, Win10 Pro, Gigabit Wired, Internet 10mbit/s Fiber UP/DOWN Platform: AFTV-GEN1, 0S5.0.5.1, Gigabit Wired-AFTV Gen1&2 ports are only 10/100mbit ports, Internet 10mbit/s Fiber UP/DOWN Server: Version 3.0.5972.0 AFTV App: v1.2.00a 3rd Party App: IMDB IBN People Downloader V2 Hi Forum - Is there anyway to improve the color contrast on the media info blobs on the AFTV? That medium gray on light gray contrast leaves my eyes squinting and with a headache Thanks, Tanamur

    emby media tagging/grouping

    Hi; Ok; Now my issue is this . my music files may not be fully setup like kodi likes them but I had them in folders like this: rock/band name if album etc. emby is taking files and putting them under a new folder and mixing songs etc. I may try media manager and see if I can get duplicates out etc and fix taging.
  6. Hi. I'm new to Emby. I am creating a home video server with different user profiles. When I access the videos from a user profile, below the play button, a field called "Scenes" with different chapters (Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3, ...) and other "Media Info" with two paragraph appear (Video and Audio). My question is: Is it possible to make these two fields (Scenes and Media Info) are not visible for users? Thank you very much.
  7. Hola a todos. Soy nuevo en Emby. Estoy creando un servidor de vídeos caseros con diferentes perfiles de usuarios. Cuando accedo a los vídeos desde un perfil de usuario, abajo del botón de reproducir, aparecen un campo llamado "Escenas" con diferentes capítulos (Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3, ...) y otro "Media Info" con dos apartado (Video y Audio). Mi pregunta es: ¿es posible hacer que estos dos campos (Escenas y Media Info) no sean visibles para los usuarios? Muchas gracias.
  8. Hi, I successfully installed an emby server on my RPi2 with raspbian (jessie) using this guide: https://discourse.osmc.tv/t/howto-install-emby-server/6364 Everything seems to work fine. Except one annoying thing... My problem is similar to this post: http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/24157-webclient-recursive-library-scan-missing-mediainfo/ There's a Media Info section at the bottom of any video page (using the web-app). It only shows me "container" and "path" (as shown in Pic 1). Nothing else... The server can't get any video mediainfos. I never had this issue with the Windows emby server version. Is there something wrong with my libmediainfo? I'm not sure if it's always true, but it should have a streamdetails section at the end of nfo files. This is not the case for me (it was when I used windows). I did the following: mediainfo /path/of/my/video It actually worked and gave me all the stream details. This is really strange. I also tried the advanced refresh from the metadata manager. No success. Is it a problem with permissions or something else? I even tried running the server from login as root (not sure if it was a good idea). I'm using samba (CIFS) for my video shares just for info... I attached two server logs. The first one is when I scanned the library with only one movie (shorter). Just in case it isn't enough, I also included a second one with the full scan of my entire library. Apparently, there is a problem with ffprobe. I have no idea what to do. I'm really new with linux and I need some help. Thank you
  9. Hello, When I set up additional profiles in Kodi, what should I select for Media Info and Media Sources; shares with default, shares with default (read only), or separate? I've been troubleshooting a corrupt database issue on Kodi and I started fresh with no addons or profiles. That worked great for a few days so I figured it was time to add profiles, and then I started having database issues again. So I started back at zero and now I'm wondering if this is my issue. With my old MYSQL setup, I would have each profile "share with default" and that seemed to work fine, but now I'm thinking that's not the way to go with Emby. Thanks for any and all help.

    Media Info not updating

    Hi there, I'm currently running MB3 Server version 635601306347583050. Since the most recent update, my media info is not updating on new content. I can live without the mediainfo icons, but the missing runtime is rather annoying (although I do have run time info in my xml file that Metabrowser populates, MB3 does not copy this field in to the NFO file it creates). I've tried deleting folders, advanced refresh, refresh, moving the item in to different folders, but always no media info (other than container and path). I have checked my logs, and I am getting a "User does not have admin access." on library update, so I'm hoping that this will provide a clue to the problem? I've tried searching the forum for this error, but could not find another topic with the same details. I've attached the log to this post. Any help would be greatly appreciated. travla logfile.txt
  11. I recently switched up my media info icons, and I can't remember what I did to get them to be refreshed in MBC before (or MB2). Does anyone know what to do to get them to show? Library.db deletion? Some cache I need to delete? It's been a week or so since I switched them and they still haven't switched over.
  12. It happens in some cases that users have issues in one of the MB clients with specific video file(s). I think it help a lot when others can test the specific file to try to reproduce the issue or to confirm the issue isn't specific to the media file. Here is a quick tutorial on how to make a sample of a MKV file using MKVToolNix (MKVMerge GUI): Add the file to sample and choose the destination where the sample will be: Choose the options as per below and "start muxing". I like to choose 5 files so I can choose a specific scene that helps showing the issue... Upload one of the samples on your DropBox (or whatever you use) and share it. (don't choose the last file as it's a copy of the entire video) Then delete the files... ***There is also another faster but without GUI way to sample a video file and also mkvmerge will in most cases re-write the time stamps (which could be the root of the problem that needs testing). ffmpeg -i "inputmovie.ext" -t 60 -c copy "outputmovie.ext" Here is my tutorial (my preferred way): Put a copy of the ffmpeg.exe file somewhere simple to work from (d:\samples in my example) Open a Command Prompt (as administrator) and type the above command by replacing inputmovie.ext by the original video file name (including full path) and outputmovie.ext by whatever file name you want (with same extension). "-t 60" is the sample duration you want. When done (really fast), you should have your sample ready in the folder (in this case; d:\samples)
