Emby Server on Synology


Recommended Posts

Thanks for posting that ImageMagick link.   Cytek should update his instructions to point to that link for x64 installs.  The rest are accurate on the below copied post: 


i thought i'll give you a little update on this one:

  1. I was able to compile ffmpeg with all neded libraries and yasm support for my 1513+ (x64)
  2. I created a PR for ImageMagick (which is also needed for emby to run)
  3. I created a PR for emby itself (which depends on ffmpeg ImageMagick and Mediainfo spk)

so... it looks pretty good for now :)

next step is to compile stuff for other arches and see if that works as well (hopefully) and then wait for the PR`s to be merged and the Packages to be published (which can take some time again)

if someone wants to test the whole thing:

  1. Install Mono from SynoCommunity
  2. Install Mediainfo from SynoCommunity
  3. Install ImageMagick from my Repo https://cytec.us/spk/
  4. Download and Install ffmpeg from here: http://cytec.us/syno/test-spk/ffmpeg/
  5. Download and Install emby from here: http://cytec.us/syno/test-spk/emby/

hopefully that will work :)

NOTE: atm there are only x64 builds available for ffmpeg and emby but i'm currently compiling for some other arches too (which takes quite a long time for ffmpeg) which should pop up as soon as they are done :)

EDIT: @@rvmourik i just uploaded a build for armadaxp can you test it?



I tried the armadaxp package from cytec, but unfortunately Emby just doesn't start:

Hello All


Emby supported packages for both Intel and Marvell based machines are now available, see here: http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/22921-synology-setup/?p=224173


Migration from the community package is also available, there's a wiki article here: https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/Synology-:-Migrating-From-the-Community-Package
