By default, Windows Store Applications are not allowed to send network traffic to the local Computer (localhost 127.0.0.1)

To circumvent this restriction you need to allow loopback for Emby Theater in Windows.

To do this, just download the "Windows 8 Loopback Exemption Manager"
https://www.telerik....fiddler/add-ons

Once downloaded, just run the Windows8LoopbackManager.exe file. Look for Emby Theater in the list of apps. mark the checkbox and click save.

Now go back to Emby Theater and you'll be able to connect.

After installing the following update:

Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3194496)

 

The loopback manager comes up empty

Neither emby theater or the theater app will work.

This is still required, but the loopback tool works fine in my testing.

Can I ask out of curiosity, why you would use the store app rather than installing Emby Theater?

The store app will generally be easier on windows surface tablets. On desktop computers I would suggest using our desktop app that is downloaded from our website. Thanks.

There is not more executable file available anywhere on your links, please give us another solution to make the windows store app work on a local machine ?

 

 

 

--> for all those looking for an available loopback tool :

https://www.telerik....fiddler/add-ons

 

Install it, it will launch at the end of installation, or run the program yourself

Launch windows store Emby app

Hit refresh in the loopback tool

Select and click the checkbox for Emby theater (if both clients are running ... close the desktop app)

Hit save

 

You are done.

Took me 2 weeks to have that fixed so hopefully this will help some people (but windows store app does not display pictures when scrolling so just stick with the dektop app !)

FYI the server has this built in and the new 4.0 release has made some fixes for it. Thanks.

Didn’t want to have to install other things to make this work as it should’ve worked out of the box. Downloaded Theater from the website and all is working again, seems a native issue with the windows App Store version

Did you read the first post? The store app can't just make itself work due to security measures put in place by Microsoft.

Then how is it that the Plex store app works just fine with the Plex Media Server on the same machine?

 

I thought I would give Emby a try, but was really disappointed when it didn't work. Had to go back to Plex...

 

PS

 

After writing this, I thought I would give Emby another try with the desktop application (mentioned in some posts above). So I re-installed the server and downloaded and installed the old .exe app, only to find out that it requires a paid subscription to play my files(!!!).

Am I missing something? Is Emby not free like Plex? Again, what a disappointment...

I apologize for the disappointment. We work very hard on Emby and we thank you for your support.
