One thing that I would like to see implemented is the abilty to display lyrics in all of the apps. For those of us who have libraries with lyrics embedded in the actual files, it would be trivial. Simply scrape the lyrics from the lyrics tag and display them.

 

As far as scraping from online lyrics databases, I don't see that working very well as just about every app that I have seen use it either doesn't get the correct lyrics or they are truncated with an add for the website.

Hello all

 

i feel that emby is a wonderful solution for a house with multiple PCs acting as media centres. I use Kodi and freenas and install emby server and plugin. I works flawlessly  for videos.

 

However is lacking a music management environment environment to manage a music library, build playlists, manage playlist and properly scrape for (as mentioned Lyrics. performers and composers. 

 

The fact that i can start a movies on one pc to finish watching it on an other is of no use to me because if this happens i remember where i left off and if not i approximate. 

 

To me listening to music in the house car, phone or motorcycle is the major use of my media.

 

Are there plans for emby to add modify or better integrate with other solutions (such as Kodi) to increase emby's capabilities in this area

Hi there, what capabilities would you like us to add?

Hi Thank you for your prompt reply

 

When I installed Emby I was not able Emby to read M3U playlists. I believe this would be something I overlooked. along with this manage the playlist  (add, Move, sort and Delete), Integrate to music brains picard. In addition I would need to sort the playlist by field of the library or sort it the playlist randomly

 

Loading and playing a song was not the problem.  

 

The main Issue was the capability to add a song (when I am listening to it ) to a playlist i choose or I need to create a new. 

 

I had a hard time learning how to modify the Thumbnail (again probably due to my lack of experience with Emby)

 

Essentially, If I am to substitute Kodi's Gui for the EmBy i would need to have it with approximately the same features and functionality 

 

 

One thing I am currently struggling with KODI (i learning  how to do this ) is to make the look, feel and content my media on all my pcs, phone and IPOD (for the Car) and ensuring that the playlist, thumbnails setting and configuration settings are stored on my NAS. In this way when  screw something up ( which I do often when I tinker) it does not take me an eternity to get up and running again..

 

I current have 3 HTPCs and 3 Laptops running Kodi on which i listen or view my media. By next week I will have 2 freenas servers acting as a backup to one and other Buffalo Nas that act as 2nd backup of the 2 servers. All my media is backed up and I also copy the files to each server in order to get up and running immediately whilst the restore progresses. 

 

I do look at a tv episode and watch a movie every night but I listen to music all day and I play my playlists depending on how I feel or what I am doing.

 

Once again thank for your response

@@wbravin, Emby does support m3u playlists for music. We do plan to add sorting and filtering controls to playlists in a future update. thanks for the feedback.

Any word on if there'll possibly be lyrics added where you can scroll through the lyrics as the song is being played?

 

I see that Lyrics.com does have an API and wonder if this could be queried for the lyrics.  Maybe a plug-in so those which don't want this feature won't need to have it via the plug-in.

 

Thanks..

It's possible for the future, but improving our existing features comes first.

Yea we'd probably start with embedded.

I would like to +1 this and also add this:

 

On my mobile phone I use an app called poweramp that used to have lyric support through Musixmatch.

That worked for a while, but then things started to be messy and they decided to drop support. Now hitting the "lyrics" button just opens the web browser with a google search for lyrics and that's more than enough for me.

Obviously it can be dramatically improved, but as a basic, easy feature to implement, it works pretty well...

I think just those 2 would be what most of us using Emby would want. But then again, those who are making lrc files for their music probably know how to embed lyrics in their music files in the first place.
In which case, scraping for lyrics would be left for something that's exclusively for it and not integrated into Emby.
