  1. I use the DLNA plugin to stream my music to another box. This works. But what doesn't work when using DLNA are the following options: - Add to playlist - Play next - Play all from here - Shuffle As soon as I select a song to end up in the playlist, it is immediately selected and played. It's the same with the other functions. If I turn off DLNA or don't use it, then I can use the above features without any problems. For me it is a bug that should be fixed. My Emby version is up to date.

    Video playlist limit

    I created a video playlist with 1,552 episodes. I want to be able to shuffle through all of the shows on the playlist, but on my fire tv it only shuffles the first 1,000 episodes on the list. Can I do anything to make it so I can shuffle through all of my shows?

    Shuffle play a genre

    It would be very useful to have a means to shuffle play a genre on the AndroidTV app. Currently I can only shuffle a genre by casting from the smartphone/web apps to AndroidTV app. On AndroidTV app there is a general "Albums" section very similar to a specific genre section. That general "Albums" presents a play button on the right side. Would it be possible to have the same play button when listing albums for a given genre?
  4. Hi, I've noticed some slight subtleties in functionality of the Emby app when it comes to Music. On Android app, I can go to Music, Genres, pick a Genre, let's say "Pop", and I then have an option to "Shuffle" all of my Pop songs or "Play All". For the FireTV/FireStick apps, this option does not exist. Note it does exist in the other Music library areas. Any idea if we can make the functionality uniform in the FireTV client? Thanks!

    Reproduction halted issue

    Hello, first of all, I love Emby and It has become my main media platform, thanks for it, I would be willing to contribute to the project it if would be possible. Now, my issue. When I click Shuffle in my Music Library folder, a song starts playing, but when it finishes and next one should start, nothing happens and the attached 'loading icon' appears indefinitely. This behavior also happens on the first click on the shuffle option, and also after some tracks have been played. I have the emby server installed in an Ubuntu 20.04 computer. My media content is in a NTFS drive that is mo

    Android shuffle

    Does anyone know if the Emby app on an Android phone has shuffle ? I downloaded a playlist and it plays the songs fine but only one at a time. Also, if I try Instant mix it just gives a spinning circle like its looking for a server which isn't there, being in the car at the time. Also, how to I check the app version number ? (I'm not an Android person). EDIT: just look on the server when its available

    Photo Playlists

    Hello, I'm brand new to Emby. My use case is to provide a way for my parents to view family photos and videos on their TV that exist on their home network. I'm planning on going down the Roku path. I've looked at Plex, Emby and Roku's own Media Player app. Nothing I have found will allow the photos to play as a screensaver (unless on a USB drive plugged right into the Roku), which would be ideal, to turn the TV into a digital picture frame. For now, it seems I'll need to settle for slideshow capability, where the users need to go into an app and actively start displaying images. From
  8. I did a search, and the only request that I saw similar was included here: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/76011-music-queue-list-improvements/?hl=%2Bshuffle+%2Bmusic That discussion seemed to be more focused on lyrics rather than the shuffle piece, so I figured I would create a separate FR. One of my biggest pet peeves with using the web interface (when listening to music at my desk) and the android app is my inability to to select a song from a playlist and have emby shuffle the playlist after the current song ends. The current behavior is that after the song I sel
  9. i just think it would be cool if shuffle only shuffled through your unplayed episodes, or if maybe there were different options like only shuffle unplayed, only shuffle played, and shuffle all. Just a thought i had.
  10. I have a lot of libraries with the Home movies and pictures setting and previously Shuffle has worked wonders. Lets say i have a folder, that is called "Nature" Inside the folder Nature i have sub folders "Flowers" "Earth" "Skies" "Sea" and in these folders i a bunch of pictures. Previously if i browsed to Nature and hit shuffle it would shuffle the 4 folders content and play it back randomly, grabbing content from all the 4 folders at random, which is the expected function of shuffle. Since the server upgrade hitting shuffle in this scenario randomly selects 1 of the 4 folders
  11. Howdy, just started using Emby premier recently. Loving the way everything looks and works so far! One feature I can't seem to get working on the Roku App is the shuffle like in the web app. In the web app when I click on the shuffle button it brings me to a random series. When I click next episode it goes to the next episode but stays in that series aka the Venture Bros S01E01 -> Venture Bros S01E02. Thanks for any help anyone may be able to give.

    iOS emby music shuffle issue

    Hi I'm seeing an issue as follows since iOS emby version 1.7.8. Just verified the same issue still exists under version 1.7.9. Whenever I click the "shuffle" button of a music folder (let's say it contains 3 sub-folders and each sub-folder has 5 songs). The application should recursively flatten the hierarchy and shuffle all 15 songs under this music folder to put them into the play queue. However the current iOS emby app only randomly selects one of the 3 sub-folders and play the 5 songs of the selected sub-folder in order. The play queue only contains 5 songs from the same album after I
  13. Hello Emby I'm assuming there was a major update recently? Sorry I just assume as things are running a little differently for me and I've not changed anything. I play EMBY on my IOS phone and use "shuffle" all the time. I noticed that now the next file does not play and instead, EMBY repeats the file played and the puts up a weird counter "next episode playing in 762 seconds"... I have added a screen shot to show you (attached) I just thought you should know... Cheers Rob Naeyaert
  14. I have an XBox One and an XBox One X for playback (Windows 10 as the server) that have both started having the same problem within the past few weeks or so. Here's how we can reproduce the problem: Go to Television\Series\Choose a Series, Click "Shuffle". Playback then stops\freezes at the very end of the first episode usually right around when it says "Next Episode will start in 9 seconds" . It will sit there until someone backs out of the app or clicks "Start Now" . We have been using the shuffle for several years when it stopped working a few weeks ago . I think it is either due to an updat

    Problem with music files on Roku app

    I added about 3000 music files to Emby recently. I previously only used Emby for videos. I have gone through some of my songs and indicated some were favorites. I did this from my computer. However, when I go on the Roku app, I can't get to my favorites to play them. When I first open my music library, I see "Favorites" as a header, but it quickly disappears and I can't see how to get it back. Also, is there no way to shuffle or mix my entire library? From what I can tell, I can shuffle play within an artist or album, but not using the whole library. Maybe I'm missing something. I'm using the

    Play all music

    Hi, (maybe) stupid question: How can I shuffle play all music of my music library in ET 3.0.0? Quickmix will only play similar songs based on the actual selection, AFAIK. Thanks & Ciao, Alfred
  17. Hello, I am currently experiencing issues with the playback of Emby audio to a Chromecast Audio device. I use both the iOS and Android Apps and both have the same issue (also seen and tested on Google Chrome). When starting a playlist based on Shuffle (artist) or simply an album and casting this to my Chromecast audio the audio/stream stops after playing the first track. There is usually about 5 seconds left on the track but it cuts off completely. The next track is not started automatically and the playlist (which you usually see when playing on the local device: ipad/android) is emp
  18. Good day, I apologize if this is a dupe, but seeing that there are 84 pages of FRs... I was hoping to see a feature added to playlists where i can add a bunch of series' and when it is played, it will play the next "newest" unwatched episode in the series with out having to map out hundrends if not thousands of episodes to play in order. What I am ultimately looking to do is to make a list of say anime series' that i could play at random or in a "scheduled" order all in episodic order similar to how a tv network would run. if this is already available either thru a plug-in or

    Play all + Shuffle

    Not sure if I am missing something here - I have a number of kids TV programmes for my young boys. There are times that I want to have Theatre play multiple episodes one after another from a series that has already been watched (many, many times when it comes to Peppa Pig!). As all episodes in the series have been watched, playback starts at episode 1 and then proceeds numerically through the series. However, everytime that I do this, playback starts at Episode 1 and proceeds numerically. If I try to shuffle play, then only one episode plays. The boys are starting to get a bit sick of the same
  20. I have just started using Emby for my music collection and am busy exploring how everything works. Perhaps this is how it is supposed to work, but I'm guessing it is not. When I navigate to an artist in the web app (or through http://tv.emby.media) and click on the 'shuffle' button, it starts playing random songs from my whole library, not (just) from the artist page that I was looking at. I'm using Emby Server on Synology DSM 6.1.3. I can reproduce the issue with both Firefox 56.0 (64-bit) and Chrome 58.0.3029.81 (64-bit).
  21. As per Luke's suggestion, turning this into a feature request - It would be nice if Shuffle didn't get killed if I pick another song to play while its already in shuffle mode, or in other words I want to skip the song its decided to play but still shuffle and move on to the next song. In relation to this, when I click Shuffle, the Shuffle button doesn't visually change to show its been selected, This would also be useful to click again to Unshuffle. If this can't be done, a Skip This Track button would be nice. Hope this isn't too confusing - it confuses me when I read through it..

I use this feather a lot on TV shows Much appreciated. Cheers Rob

    SHUFFLE not working in Theater

    Hello Emby - I'm running the latest Theater release and I noticed my "SHUFFLE" button is not working. It worked a few days ago, and it also works fine in the web client. I use this feature a lot as I have a lot of TV shows that I put on Shuffle. Can you please help me fix this? I've rebooted, restarted the server and nothing works. Weird that it works fine in the web client. Thanks for your help Rob

    Kids night time suggestion

    I am looking for a way to shuffle episodes of a certain TV show but have it stop after a certain amount of time... At the moment I am using a FireTV and at night I pick whatever cartoon TV show the kids would like to watch. Then I hit the shuffle all episodes button, put the TV on a timer, and let it roll... My issue is that it just plays and plays all night. Even though the TV is off it is still rolling through episodes. What ends up happening is that sometime in the night, the emby-server will crash, and I have to do a restart the next morning. Does anyone have a better way for

    Request: Set Shuffle Limit

    So here is my usecase: 1) When I go to bed at night, I like to shuffle though TV shows I have through my FireTV Stick. 2) So I go to the TV show, select shuffle, put my tv on a sleep timer. The issue is, because my FireTV Stick doesn't turn off when my TV does, it will continue to fetch and play videos until I physically stop it myself. This causes my Emby Media server to endure unneeded processing and will ultimately cause my HDDs to fail at a much faster rate, since they are use non stop. I'd like to see a way in the system.xml file to set the maximum shuffle time or shuffle cou
