Arch Linux

I have the server  working great on an Odroid-XU3 ARM device ... even transcoding works well ... worse case 50% CPU 1080p -> 1MB stream

 

Would love to see a Home Theater client for Linux though .... and I can't get TvHeadend to work ...

(Previously been a Plex user, but will shift if the TVHeadend client works ..)

 

Well, if you count Kodi, we already have a home theater client.  Emby Theater is eventually going to get native Linux support, but I am sure that will be a ways down the road unless we get a community member to step up and take on the development of the Linux build.

Hi,

 

Not really counting the Kodi plugin ... it has issues with streaming, specially with music, just doesn't work for me and tvheadend plugin for Emby does not work in Kodi.

.. and yes, I know Kodi has it's own tvheadend client .... but I really want it available to all clients through one streaming service .... and Kodi is very buggy, especially on ARM ..

 

.. so really looking forward to a Linux theater client ... I believe as it is HTML + electron, porting is easy,  the only issue/work is with the video player, if MPV can be integrated that would be excellent.

 

This discussion I have started here: http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/33277-linux-home-theater-client-please/&do=findComment&comment=317116

 

Cheers,

Guys, do not upgrade mono to 4.4 or you will get lots of playback issues. You can add it to IgnorePkg in pacman.conf.

has 4.4 become the default for all arch linux users?

I wonder why. 4.4 is basically alpha. End users don't know that so they're completely unaware.

Thanks to the recent posters with the good citizen PSA about Mono versions.  I've been having major troubles the last 2 days while on the road, using the webclient, and haven't been able to solve them...

 

Now I am quietly confident that rolling back Mono will resolve them and happy times can resume!

 

Thanks everyone.

Hi,

 

I am having permission issues. 

 

I have a default user called engr and one user that is created by emby-server. I have created a group and added emby and engr to that group.

I have a shared folder with permissions as follows:

 

drwxr-x--- 60 engr shared_media 4096 Nov 24 02:54 /home/engr/movies
 
I have also tried:
 
drwxrwxrwx 60 emby shared_media 4096 Nov 24 02:54 /home/engr/movies
 
However, I am unable to add /home/engr/movies in the library.
 
I receive the following error each time:
 
"There was an error adding the media path. Please ensure the path is valid and the Emby Server process has access to that location."
 
Here is my output of /etc/conf/emby-server
 
MONO=/usr/bin/mono
FFMPEG=/usr/bin/ffmpeg
FFPROBE=/usr/bin/ffprobe
PROGRAM_DATA=/var/lib/emby
 
and output of /usr/bin/emby-server 
 
#!/bin/sh
 
exec $MONO /usr/lib/emby-server/MediaBrowser.Server.Mono.exe -programdata $PROGRAM_DATA -ffmpeg $FFMPEG -ffprobe $FFPROBE
 
Can anyone help ?
 
Thanks,
Naveed

I have Emby on my Ubuntu PC and want to move it to an Arch Linux PC .. can someone please tell me how should i do that ?

 

I tried to copy the core Emby directory under /usr/lib form old to new . but it did not work.

I copied the whole directory .. changed the user and group to emby .. and when i restarted the emby server it always would get stuck at loading the emby login page .. and show black background . sometimes after a few refresh it would fail and nothing shows

 

I have reinstalled Antergos again .. its clean install and let me try this once again now

OK. We haven't really tested that type of procedure across distros. I would suggest checking out the backup and restore plugin in the plugin catalog.

After sex everything becomes so much clearer.

 

I copied it again and it works.

 

Only one problem .. one my old Ubuntu PC the samba sare names with different .. e.g. /media/videos/Movies not on my new Arch PC they are like /mnt/videos/Movies .. and once i changed the folders i lost all the watched history .. :(

 

How can i keep my watched history that's most important

I Just realised ... i should not worry about watched status .. since i am syncing to trakt it would resync the new data and it will be up to date.

 

You probably want to just keep it simple though and rely on the raw data. the link i gave you will handle your user data for you.

I don't recall these errors before 3.1.2, maybe I didn't properly check my logs before.

Did you by any chance bumped imagemagick requirements? Is there another issue? Should I enable multilib?
