How can I change the page link or emby link?
Where I only want to change the local server, not the external server
And how can I do that without buying a domain where only the numbers are replaced with another link?
Like this link to my local server "http://192.168.1.121:8096/", how can I change it to any domain without having to buy an actual domain

I just want to change the emby link in the local server because I do not use the emby outside the house

You can't that I know of.   And would not be do with css if it could.

Emby will connect via localhost:port (on host machine), LANIP:port, and hostname:port (not sure about all clients with hostname).  But the dashboard will/should always show host ip.

If your router supports custom dns entries, you can point the local address to anything you want. If not, you can run your own dns server - depending on the operating systems you have available - and then point your router to that.

If you don’t want to enter the Emby port in clients and web browsers alongside the domain, you can take it a step further by setting up a reverse proxy to point the domain to the Emby port.

From there you would just use the domain when connecting in web browsers, and in clients you would leave the port field empty.

Just enter this into the browser address bar:

http://{localdomain}:8096

Ok I understand that I want to replace this link

http://localhost:8096/web/index.html#!/home

This link is inside the local network

http://movies.com:8096/web/index.html#!/home

I want this to be the domain I use emby not "localhost"

How can I do that

Just put that domain into the browser address bar and hit enter.

Or when you use an Emby app, you can manually enter any address you want to connect to a server.

How can I convert the main domain to login to "emby" is this

http://movies.com:8096/web/index.html#!/home

I want to do all this on the internal server, not external

How can I change that
When I tried, I failed to access the server

On windows you could edit the 'hosts' file.

But you'd have to add the entry on every computer for that link to work.

It would only work on the computers you edited the host file on, other clients wouldn't understand the redirect.

 

I suppose you could get a free domain, from a free domain supplier, and set up a reverse proxy...

As posted by @tomnjerry74 yesterday - the only way you are going to do this properly is substitute the IP address with a DNS name.

For local name resolution - you need to run a local DNS server and point all your devices to use that DNS server.

For names not resolved by the local DNS server, then it forwards the lookup onto the internet DNS servers.

Your router 'may' be able to do this for you - because unless you have specified direct DNS entries in your clients - this is likely how DNS is resolved today - ie it goes to your router first and then onto the internet DNS servers.

I use a local DNS server myself and use a DNS name for all my emby clients, it is so much more flexible as well - for example changing an IP address means just changing a single DNS record, you don't have to touch the clients.

What router do you have - it may have this built in ?

I've had success using .local domains within my network for various things, including Emby.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.local

The set up varies from OS to OS and if I remember correctly, I can't get Android to resolve .local addresses, but PC/Mac/Linux browsers and Roku are happy with it.

No need to purchase a domain and in many cases, the Emby host OS already has the required software running.
