How to run Windows Store app on same machine as server
Posted 18 September 2016 - 08:01 PM
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"
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.

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 :
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)
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 !)

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...
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...
