How to add media libraries when running Synology DSM 7


Recommended Posts


Adding libraries to Emby server is a little different under DSM 7 in that setting permissions for the shared folders has changed some.

If you've ever tried to add a library to Emby and it wouldn't accept, then the permissions might be wrong

1.  Give emby read/write permissions to the shared folder

  • Open Control Panel...Shared Folder in DSM on your NAS
  • Select your shared folder...Edit... and then under the Permissions tab select the dropdown box and change it to "System internal user"
  • Check Read/Write next to the user 'emby' and then click Save



2. Add libraries in Emby server

  • Settings...Library...New Library
  • Select the library type and enter library folder information
