Ember for Emby Closes Immediately After Opening It


Recommended Posts

I just bought Ember for Emby from the Microsoft store and it shows the purple splash screen then closes, several seconds after opening it. I am running it on the same computer I have my Emby server running. I've tried repairing it, resetting, and uninstalling and reinstalling which did not resolve its behaviour. Any ideas why it is doing this. My server works fine from Edge or Chrome prowsers and from my android app on my phone. ???

You may need to enable loopback on your computer if running on the same machine

Emby Theater from the Microsoft Store works fine. But Ember still closes.

I first enabled the Loopback adapter following instructions from here:
How to enable loopback adapter in Windows 10 – A programmer's notebook 💻☕ (basementmedia.no)
and rebooted.

That did not work. I enabled the loopback adapter, but Ember still closed. I then ran the command listed in the "Streamline loopback ..." post above
CheckNetIsolation LoopbackExempt -a -n=436337Illusions.com.MediaBrowser_77hd5e1v1hqs4
and rebooted.

That has not resolved the issue either. Ember for Emby closes within 30 seconds of opening it showing only the green splash screen. I can't even see what the app really looks like. lol. I am running Win 11 Pro and have an Emby Premier membership. Any others ideas? I'd appreciate any assistance.

Getting the same in my test.

Only thing I could find is in the Event Viewer.

But doesn't look like @7illusionshas be on here in a while.  Not sure if it is relevant as my test system is Windows 11 also.

Thanks for the Event log. Seems the problem is definitely Ember and not me anyway. I also left a tweet on his Twitter page yesterday. If I don't get a solution. I will get try to get a refund from Microsoft.

I can confirm that the problem seems to be incompatibility between ember and Win 11.  The app is crashing during the initial configuration routine.  7 will need to make changes for it to install correctly on Win 11. The app itself needs to be updated to support some recent changes in the emby server. 

I will also try to reach out to @7illusionsas well.
