Other subs that people manually add (.srt) are not always accurate

This are the ones I am talking about as afaik only srt subs can be delayed, graphical subs (sub, pgs) cannot.

but how would you sync the adjustments to other users if they don't have the exact same .srt file?

Imagine: I have family living in Portugal and I want to give them access to my server.

All my files though only have German + English, everything else I through away when ripping the disc - reripping is not an option as it would be way to time intensive.
Now I grab a Portuguese srt from e.g. Opensubtitles but it is out of sync let's say 600ms.
What I am trying to say is: Whenever the first user notices the delay and fixes it for himself (by setting +/- 600ms) this information should be stored globally for all users as all other users will run into the same delay issue if they use that sub.

Somehow clear now?

Hi.  Users don't have separate subtitle files.  Everyone is looking at the same media.  Saving the offset globally makes sense.

No, not at all?

Example: I download a .srt file somewhere rename it so it's the exact same name as the movie, the sub a bit out of sync, so I sync it with the movie. Or I download a different .srt file that has a different timetable.

Everyone else with that movie and an srt file should then receive my sync? Horrible plan, since that movie has like 20 different .srt files available for the same language subtitle. It would trow all those other people out of sync.

Sorry, not at all. A .srt file has only the filename as an identifier. And usually you change the filename to match the movie. If I match my .srt file to my movie, and you match your (different) srt file to the same movie, and we sync those, one of us is gonna be out of sync.

I think there is a misunderstanding:

Global does not mean the delay will be shared between Emby servers (e.g. yours and mine) but the delay would be stored within my server/database only.

Ohhhh yes since global was said, I thought you meant between all Emby users. Yes, on the same server, with multiple users, it would make sense.
