  1. Hello everyone, I'm a new emby user since a week or two. But there is a problem that keeps occuring. When a streamed a video to my chromecast it showed subtitles, but this was only the first day. Now when I try to stream the same movie (or other) it doesn't show any subtitles. When I pauze the video on mobile when it shows a subtitle and than stream it, it will show that sentence for a split second and nothing after. Context: - I run my emby server on a synology - I use opensubtitles as automatic source - self added subtitles are having the correct naming (showed at the ? in emby) - I have searched the forum but didn't come across some solution Thanks for helping.
  2. I was going to test running Emby on my DS418 in effort reduce my technical footprint, but Emby Server does not appear in the Synology Package Center. I am running DSM 6.2.3 - 25426. I am capable of manually installing it but would prefer getting the package directly from the Package Center.

    Missing image from Continue Watching

    This was working, however all of a sudden the image is blank on the Continued Watching tile for any movie I watch. Any ideas on why this may have started happening? Is this a setting or a configurable item? My setup is emby in docker on synology using let's encrypt, reverse proxy and https.

    Migration DSM7 DS220+ : nickel !

    Bonjour, Pour info, la migration s'est bien déroulée. Aucune perte en suivant la procédure Juste une correction dans la ligne de code pour moi : cp -r /volume1/emby/* /volume1/@appdata/EmbyServer à la place de cp -r /volume1/Emby/* /volume1/@appdata/EmbyServer Sinon, un peu long de redonner les droits à Emby sur les répertoires mais ça va. Vous pouvez y aller ! Ne pas oublier de donner les droits au répertoire de backup de la configuration aussi
  6. Hi, And thanks for this software. Right now I'm running emby server (premiere) on synology app (NAS is a 918+) ; client is installed on a first generation nvidia shield . All is connected via ethernet. Sometimes (rarely to be frank, very rarely) I got stuttering, mainly x or h265 files. I get two months ago a second hand elitedesk G4 mini (UHD Graphics 630) and installed linux (ubuntu 20.04 server) to run some valheim, minecraft and conan exiles servers via docker. And I wonder if using an emby container on this linux computer would improve performances. CPU is way better in the G4 than in the NAS. RAM is the same, 32Go. I have several questions, having close to none tech skill. 1- In my current setup (syno server to shield), which is "decoding" the stream ? NAS is decoding, and shield just have to display ? Shield is decoding, NAS being just providing the files for the shield to decode ? 2- In my current setup, is there some tips I should use to improve streaming ? 3- In my current setup, should I check somewhere if some sort of hardware acceleration is activated ? On the NAS ? The Shield ? 4- Would using linux server as a host for an emby container, NAS only for storage and the shield as a client improve the experience ? Once again thanks for the program, and the forum. I have a lot of informations available should I install emby docker on linux... Regards, F.
  7. Apologies for the rather long post, but I wanted to try and present all the relevant details as far as I've been able to tell... I'm encountering a persistent issue in the recordings Emby server on my Synology NAS makes. Specifically, in a number of cases the recorded video file, at some point within its duration (no pattern as far as I can tell), will show some corruption for a brief period - anything from virtually instantaneous to on/off over a few seconds - following which the audio will be significantly out of sync with the video (more than 2-3 secs, probably even >10 secs in some cases)... this then persists for the remainder of the recording. This has been occuring for quite a while, through multiple Emby server versions - almost certainly back to before v4. The issue only affects HD channels (I have OTA Freeview in the UK, so these are all H.264/AAC full HD DVB-T2 streams) - I've never seen it happen to an SD channel recording (MPEG2/mp2 576p DVB-T). Even within that, there's a dramatic difference between the HD channels themselves... the issue impacts: - approx. 60-65% of all BBC One HD recordings (>30 tested) - approx. 55% of all BBC Two HD recordings (>15 tested) - approx. 25% of all BBC Four HD recordings (>25 tested) I had thought it wasn't impacting any recordings at all from ITV HD, Channel 4 HD or Channel 5 HD (20 tested in total) - but then yesterday I had it happen to a Channel 4 HD recording for the first time (that I can remember / since I started taking notes). Note: it is very definitely a server-side issue and not a client payback one - the problem exists regardless of whether playing back through Emby, Plex, Kodi, or just using VLC or another media player on a PC to directly play the recorded .ts file - though sometimes the problem exhibits as a complete loss of audio rather than just being many seconds out of sync. Based on my observations and troubleshooting so far, I have reached the following tentative conclusions: #1. It does *not* seem to be a signal/aerial/tuner issue Since I had previously been using Plex as my DVR solution, until they royally messed up their EPG in the UK (& I've now come to appreciate a number of other Emby advantages!), I still had/have many programmes being simultaneously recorded through Plex as well as through Emby. These record using the exact same setup as Emby: a single rooftop aerial feed into an amplifying 4-way splitter, 3 of which feed into HDHomeRun Connect tuners connected to the same gigabit switch as the NAS is connected to. I have never had the issue occur with any of the Plex recordings, so the actual broadcast signal does not exhibit the problem. To check that it wasn't a problem with a particular one of the tuner devices, or the short aerial lead between that and the splitter, I switched around so that Emby recorded using the tuners previously used by Plex and vice versa - Emby continued to have the problem while Plex's recordings remained perfect. #2. It seems to be specific to the Synology version of Emby server Since the problem was only impacting Emby and not Plex, I installed a second Emby server as a test, on a very old Windows PC I'd stopped using but not yet thrown out. Again, this records from the same HDHomeRun tuners as the NAS-based Emby & Plex. So far, I have not encountered a single occurrence of the issue. As a further test (after reinstalling the main Emby server on the NAS, per #3 below), I also installed a third Emby instance using the Docker container image (running on the NAS, and again using the same tuners, etc.). While the sample set of tested recordings from this instance is probably still only around 10 total, none of them have exhibited the issue even though some of those programmes *have* had the problem in the parallel recording by the main Synology-package Emby server. #3. It doesn't seem to be due to a corrupted Emby installation Since the PC-based test Emby server showed no problems, I thought it might just be some kind of corruption in the Emby server installation on the NAS - which has by now been upgraded through multiple versions. I therefore removed the Emby package entirely and then re-installed it (after rebooting the NAS) and restored the server config using the backup plugin* Unfortunately, this seems to have had no effect and the issue continues as before. #4. It may have some relation to broadcast TS streams without timestamps? While recently developing a post-processing script to re-mux DVR recording files from .ts into .mkv format, to get lag-free skipping when playing back via my Nvidia Shield, a significant number of files can't be converted using ffmpeg as it complains about "Timestamps are unset in a packet for stream 0" and "Can't write packet with unknown timestamp". Interestingly, this seems to be the case only for recordings from those HD channels that are impacted by the AV sync issue (though ffmpeg fails whether the recording is impacted or perfectly OK) - plus I did see the same ffmpeg errors trying to convert the one Channel 4 HD recording yesterday that exhibited the AV sync issue. Unfortunately, while I can see how the absence of timestamps might play a part in continuing the huge audio sync issue following some slight corruption, I'm not sure if it helps explain why Synology-Emby has this recording problem when none of Windows-Emby, Docker-Emby or Plex do? Can anyone help with a suggestion as to any of: what the problem might be?, a potential resolution?, or what else I might do to further diagnose the issue? Would it be worth me finding the time to completely remove & reinstall the Emby package once again, but this time manually recreate the entire configuration rather than using the backup plugin? * BTW: major kudos on the excellent server config backup plugin - it only needs the addition of restoring series & recording schedules to make it virtually perfect! (Series especially, since it's not just an annoying effort to have to recreate them, but it's simply impossible to recreate any series schedule when that show is currently between seasons and so not in the guide.)
  8. I would like to put my data library on the synology shared folder /Music nfs enabled to read only. Probably an old question but how do to it ? map and shared networkfolder keep being refused \\192.xxx.xxx.xxx\Music Any extra settings on the rapsberry emby. a shared folder in the rapsberry gets my music collection but the emby does not connect directly with the nas

    Network Gurus

    Hi guys, Looking for advice/help..... Next month I go into jail Hotel Quarantine in Sydney. Two weeks locked in a room with my wife..... I will have my NAS with me, plus a laptop with a single ethernet port, a 16-port switch and a Wi-Fi-router....NAS does not have Wi-Fi, only ethernet ports. I don't know in advance if my room will have Wi-Fi or an ethernet port...however, probably just Wi-Fi. Is it possible, using what I have, to setup a local network so that both of us can connect to Emby on my NAS on our various Wi-Fi devices (another laptop, iPad and Android phones)? I'm not looking to expose my NAS to the outside world, just my room...

    Emby / Uptobox / .strm

    Bonjour à tous, Je viens de découvrir grâce à Emby les fichiers "*.strm". Une fonction qui peut être extrêmement pratique ! J'ai fais quelques essais en mettant des vidéos sur Uptobox, j'ai ensuite copier le lien de téléchargement pour créer mon ficher .strm. La démarche fonctionne très bien et Emby lit correctement le film sur TV, smartphone et navigateur. Cependant Emby est installer sur un NAS synology DS 720+ et lorsque je lance un film il transcode avec un cpu de 90%... Est-il possible de récupérer uniquement le liens de streaming? Avez-vous une solution pour éviter le transcodage? D'avance merci pour votre aide
  11. Hello All This is something we've been looking at for a while between stable releases, you may have seen some discussions on the subject in other threads in this forum. I'm pleased to say that this work is now rolled up into the stable Synology/XPEnology package releases from 3.1.2.0-1. There are some details here on what to expect: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/36814-ds916-emby-transcoding-performance/?p=379641 A big thank you goes to @@xxJonoxx who made their system available for us to test with. Please note, that this should still be considered experimental at this stage and we'll rely on your experiences and feedback to refine the implementation in future releases. Instructions to Enable Support DSM6 SSH to your Synology NAS and login as 'admin'. Change to utilities directory, using 'cd /var/packages/EmbyServer/scripts/utilities'. Change the FFmpeg version, using 'sudo ./switchcomp ffmpeg 0.0.0'. DSM5 SSH to your Synology NAS and login as 'root'. Change to utilities directory, using 'cd /var/packages/EmbyServer/scripts/utilities'. Change the FFmpeg version, using 'sudo ./switchcomp ffmpeg 0.0.0'. Instructions to Disable Support DSM6 SSH to your Synology NAS and login as 'admin'. Change to utilities directory, using 'cd /var/packages/EmbyServer/scripts/utilities'. Change the FFmpeg version, using 'sudo ./switchcomp ffmpeg 3.1.4'. DSM5 SSH to your Synology NAS and login as 'root'. Change to utilities directory, using 'cd /var/packages/EmbyServer/scripts/utilities'. Change the FFmpeg version, using 'sudo ./switchcomp ffmpeg 3.1.4'. NOTE 1) As prompted on the screen, you will need to stop and start Emby Server in Package Center for the change to take effect. 2) For now, this change will need to be reapplied following a package update. 3) The version of FFmpeg to specify when disabling h/w transcoding support is dependent on the package version. For 3.1.2.0-3 use 3.1.4 For 3.1.2.0-2 use 3.2.2 For 3.1.2.0-1 use 3.2.2 For 3.5.2.0-1 use 4.0 Best - James

    Performance Improvements

    I'm using EmbyServer on my Synology (DS1815+ with 6GB RAM ). So far so good. But my database is getting bigger as time progresses. I was wondering if I can improve the performance. Just opening "Home screen" on one of my devices takes a long time. One tip once mentioned is placing the db on a SSD. My library.db is 261.452 KB For my synology I was thinking placing this on an external usb stick. When looking through the folders I saw all the data in the folder /volume1/@appstore/EmbyServer/var/data/. Is it wise and will it improve the performace if I place this folder with a symlink on an usb stick?? Thnx
  13. Hi everyone, I am new to the subject and at the moment Emby Connect does not work for me, locally I have no problems, it is worth mentioning that administering the server remotely is not of my interest, I just want my girlfriend to connect and see the content from her House. I have a Huawei HG8245H modem from my Totalplay internet provider in Mexico to which I entered and went to the Port Forwarding section and opened port 8096 with the TCP protocol choosing the IP of my Linksys WRT32X router as internal Host, hence I went to the settings From my router and in Port Forwarding I chose the IP of my Synology NAS and also port 8096 with the TCP protocol. I validate my public IP for remote access (WAN) and it is the same that appears in the Emby Control Panel, when trying to connect from another network, the page is loading and as the minute indicates that you can not set the connection, I also tried from the Android application on my cell phone using mobile data, I login with the Emby Connect user but I also see Connection Failure. In the Network configurations in Emby I have enabled “Allow remote connections to this Emby Server” and “Enable automatic port mapping." The user who creates for my girlfriend in Emby has his Emby Connect account added. Do I need to perform any additional configuration on the Synology Modem, Router or NAS? I enclose captures with the details of the configurations that I mention, I remain attentive to your comments, best regards. @@Dibbes
  14. Hallo an Alle! Ich habe mir die emby Software in der letzten Woche auf meine Synology Diskstation installiert, einen externen Zugriff eingerichtet und läuft soweit. Der erste Eindruck war so gut, dass ich mich zum Sponsern über die Lifetime Lizens hab hinreißen lassen. In den Einstellungen unter Startseite habe ich mir die Liste so angepasst, dass auch Weiterhören dort auftaucht. Aber egal was ich höre, Wiedergabe eines Musik-Albums, einer Playlist, eines Hörbuches... nie wird mir Weiterhören angeboten. Bei Serien und Filmen wird Weiterschauen aber angeboten. Woran kann das liegen?
  15. Hi i am a newbie on emby and i am trying to make my configuration of emby on my NAS and i got a problem... Like it's said in the title, it is impossible to use emby connect or an external dns (DuckDNS). I tried to forward my ports, create a new Emby account, change three times my DNS adress, reinstall DSM and Emby, wipe the Emby folder and the user on DSM and nothing works ! Please someone can help me

    EPG VBox

    Hi I didn't know where to put my thread, that's why I'm asking here. I have the problem that the EPG data from the VBox are always shown an hour back. For example, a program starts at 20:15, but the EPG says 19:15. What about an update? Are there any chances of solving this problem? I'm using a Synology DS218play and the firmware of VBox is 2.66.18 and Emby Synology Server is 4.6.0.7

    Emby 4.5.3.0

    Muss ich jetzt jedes Update manuell einspielen?? Ist das nicht ein Rückschritt? Wieso bietet man es nicht mehr über die Paketquellen an? Ich dachte man kann jetzt über das Webinterface updaten, aber da krieg ich nur nen Link zur Anleitung mit Dateien für die manuelle Installation. LG Dicken
  18. During the setup of the client I selected to use direct paths. After the synchronization it defaults to web streaming. If I look into the settings the direct path option is greyed out. I have the problem with the native Emby client and also with Kodi (via Emby for kodi). My Synology NAS doesn't have a powerfull CPU (DS414), so I used direct path as I think the NFS server is built-in and it would require less CPU then the webstreaming. Secondly, where I live, the movies are not dubbed and we are heavy users of subtitles. That is the reason why I also use Kodi. Kodi has more features to download another subtitle when the current one is not correct. I know that Emby made some good progress in this direction but Kodi still offers more choices. By using direct paths, it shows the full path and filename. webstreaming shows only the user-friendly name (and a URL). It is very difficult to match the subtitle to the movie within the full filename. This worked great in the past. There were some issues with the built for the Synology DS414 and I had to uninstall and reinstall it a few times. During the uninstallation all my settings were lost and I had to start over again. I know I should have taken a backup, but it was already to late. I started with a clean installation. I also purchased a lifetime subscription. I never hit the issue that I need to unlock the application. But you guys gave me great support with the builds for the DS414, so I decided to purchase a lifetime subscription. I have the issue on a Nvidia Shield and a Google TV (2020). Both are running Android TV. I have an old PC laying around and I installed Ubuntu on it. This PC has also this problem. Any idea how to get back to direct path?

    Missing metadata settings

    Hey all, I've noticed in the latest 4.5.1.0 release on my synology DS920+ there are no metadata settings in the library. I have tried removing and readding but there are no metadata settings and none of the movies are being recognised. I've posted 2 screenshot below, 1 from my windows setup showing the settings and 1 from synology showing the missing settings. Anyone else getting this?

    Screen tearing and lag

    i recently purchased a DS1520+ and have been trying to play some movies from my server remotely. But i keep having screen tearing and major lag. Which is weird because in the dashboard it shows that the NAS is handling the movie fine, in fact, is not even transcoding. Is there anything i can do to remedy this?

    Questions about Synology NAS

    So I’ve been using Emby for a couple of years, but I’ve been using it with a seedbox which I pay a substantial amount of money for per month. So I’ve been doing some research on ways to basically not have to pay all that money and I came across the Synology NAS. But before I pull the trigger I have 3 questions that hopefully y’all can answer for me. I don’t really mind paying for the most expensive model (Within reason) since It’ll be worth it in the end. So here they are: 1. How’s the performance? I like to add my Blu-ray Discs to Emby and some of them are even in 4K. So can the NAS handle a transcode of a 50GB movie? If so how many streams? 2. I have gigabit connection, can the NAS take advantage of the bandwidth if is plugged in with Ethernet? This is important because I have a lot of friends who use it remotely 3. Finally, how is Emby on it? Are there a lot of issues when it comes to Emby on the NAS? These might be very simple questions but I’ve rather hear the answers from actual users than some ad or marketing. Also, feel free to leave any other recommendations that might better fit my plan. Edit: I’m thinking on buying the DiskStation DS1520+

    EmbyServer core dumping on DS414

    I first tried to upgrade the installed package 4.4.3.0-1. The upgrade finished but emby server doesn't start. I uninstalled emby server and the result was that all my settings were gone. I didn't take a backup. Damn me. Anyway, if I try to install 4.5.1.0 directly, I get an error that port 8096 was in use. The same error with version 4.6.0.1. I had to install 4.4.3.0-1 again from the synology repository and afterwards I can upgrade. However Emby doesn't start, even it is a clean install. Nothing configured yet. /var/log messages shows: 2020-10-03T14:38:29+02:00 DiskStation coredump: Process EmbyServer[25271] dumped core on signal [4]. 2020-10-03T14:42:06+02:00 DiskStation coredump: Process EmbyServer[31128] dumped core on signal [4]. 2020-10-03T14:44:38+02:00 DiskStation coredump: Process EmbyServer[2890] dumped core on signal [4].

    Plugin installation Failures on DS920+

    Hey all, I have just installed the new 4.5.1.0 update and still have installation failures on plugins. Synology DS920+ Any ideas? Or is this something that is still being looked at. Thanks
  25. First of all I love all the work that has been done for this great product and I’ve been using Emby for 2 months without a hitch. However, yesterday I noticed Emby server was only sending stereo audio to my chromecast where surround sound with a range of different transcoded codecs always worked before. I could not find an easy fix, I had the feeling it was ffmpeg related but no errors occurred and software I believe was not updated. However, the Emby logs said it was sending out a stereo signal. I reinstalled Emby Server and everything works except when Emby is casting, the chromecast freezes (loading circle) when I play a movie. I tried a range of files with different audio codecs and containers, AC3, AAC stereo, DTS, Dolby, DTS-HD etc. It keeps freezing What works: Other apps cast fine to the chromecast including surround sound. Casting is initialised by Emby through the android app and the item metadata appears on the casted screen. Emby server plays the items perfectly on my android phone or Mac laptop. Everything worked perfectly until some change somewhere this week. What doesn't work: Once I press play the chromecast shows the circle loading icon over the Emby interface and nothing happens. Hardware/Software: - Chromecast, Firmware 1.42.172094 - Synology DS418play, DSM 6.2.3-25426 - Emby Server (4.4.3) - Emby Client Android (3.1.23) - Marantz SR6006 I believe it has something to do with ffmpeg but don't know why this would just change from one day to another. I attached the log files where the embyserver.txt log ends with the chromecast freezing. Any tips would be highly appreciated. hardware_detection-63735854706.txt embyserver.txt
