Synology Package in Development (Pre-release Testers Wanted)

HI Luke,

 

I have installed the package source (https://synology.emby.media/) as per normal, however the Emby package is not appearing in my Package Center (either under the Community tab nor any other tab).

 

I have deleted and re-added the package several times, closed and reopened Package Center, refreshed package center numerous times and even pushed Trust Level to 'any publisher' over the last few hours............but still no luck getting the Emby package to appear in my Package Center.

 

The only thing I haven't done yet is restart the NAS system - does it require a full NAS restart to appear in package center? (if so i'll restart later in the 'quieter' hours).

 

I am running a DS1813+ on DSM 5.2-5644... this should be good for EMBY according to your requirement specs? It is an Intel and I don't see a restriction on DSM requirement??.

 

Am I missing anything here? :unsure:

 

Thanks

Hi I am having the same issue does you manage to sort this?

Hey,

 

I am using emby a lot lately on my Xpenology setup running on a Core i3 with 4GB of memory. I'd be willing to help out.

Hi how did you get it working on xpenology?

Hello @@Bimmermad

 

Are you running XPEnology or a DS1813+, or both?

 

The port for XPEnology is now in testing, so if you'd like to join this test programme, let me know.

 

Work on supporting DSM5.2 on Synology hardware is also in progress, we just need some more testers to validate, before we make public.

Hi James that ks for the message just a problem which I have encountered is that I am unable to find the emby package after adding the source. I have installed an older version of emby 3.0.5934 but it is not working correctly could you please help. Me to update my current version. Is there a file I can download to manually install 3.0.6060?

Is this package available for an Armada XP based system currently? If so I'd love to try it

Hi, I would also like to contribute.

 

I have running emby on my DS213j over a year now. Currently I'm on DSM 5.2-5592, that could be changed.

Hi!

i really like to try emby on my synology DS115.

It's based on  Armada 375 88F6720 processor and DSM 6.0.1-7393 Update 2.

 

Cant wait to see a nice 'server' side backend for my Kodi / LibreELEC clients.

 

And i'd like to see if its worth to buy emby premiere lifetime (Which is on sale right now).

 

thanks for adding me in advance.

Hello @@ACIDTER

 

Thanks.

 

On Marvell processor based systems, minimum supported firmware is currently DSM6, so you would need to upgrade first.

I would be happy to be a part of the test group if I can be of any help. I had Emby running on my Synology but am really anxious to try an actual package.

After a lot of help from James, I have Emby server up and running on my DS1010+ with DX510 extension unit, under the latest DSM 5.2.

 

So far it seems to be working well, with a limited library.

 

I've just added my complete library of music, TV and movies, which is pretty massive and I'm waiting to see how it will cope. It's still scanning.

 

One issue I've noticed is massive RAM usage by mono.

I've ordered a 2GB RAM upgrade which will triple my available memory, so we'll see what happens then.

Hello @@dimitrik

 

Thanks for the update, glad to hear you're making good progress.

 

Extra memory certainly won't hurt, and it's relatively inexpensive.

 

Whilst being cautious not to oversimplify a complex subject, in general Mono will give the application the memory it is demanding, if the host OS can accommodate it.

 

Tweaking the runtime memory management is something we can look at, if we find that the default behaviour isn't 'reasonable'.

 

If the memory footprint is continuing to grow over time, rather than fluctuating and returning to a nominal level, then that would be something we need to look at.

Thanks James. I'll keep you posted. Right now mono is hovering at around 500-700 MBs, but that may be related to the server scanning the library for several hours.

 

I'll see what it's like in the next few days and report back.

A couple of observations after running the server n my DS1010+ (DSM 5.2) for a couple of days now:

 

The server is coping reasonably well with my very large library (4TB of shows, movies, music, audiobooks, home videos etc).

Browsing via web client is a little slow - this could be the due to the size of the library, or the speed of the NAS CPU or the Disks (in RAID5).

 

The console is quite snappy and responsive - the latest update (3.0.0.6070.0-2) seems to have made a bif difference in responsiveness. 

 

Memory load (from Mono) is between 250MB to 700MB. When it hits 700 MB, the server becomes kind of slow but it doesn't happen often, mainly during a library scan. It seems to gradually reduce to reasobale levels after. I need to observe it over a longer period to be sure.

Meanwhile, I changed the frequency of library scans to once a day, to reduce the impact.

 

A couple of questions:

1) Does auto-update (via package center) work? I haven't tried it for fear of messing something up...

2) Regarding plugins - do you need to reinstall them every time you update?

3) Will the "server-restart" plug-in work? Or is it safer to shut down and restart emby manually for now?

 

Thanks for any advice!

Hello again @@dimitrik

 

1) The team have recommended against using auto-update for this package. You will get your notifications through the admin screen of Emby and still get the notification in package centre that an update is available, just you need to manually apply it.

 

2) Plugins should still be present when you do a package centre upgrade.

 

3) Server restart plugin won't work for us, because our server is running as a service - I think it really only works on Windows servers.

 

Again, hope that helps.

 

Shane
