Feature request: WiFi hotspot to allow control through an app like Yatse (Android).

I currently run LibreELEC and it's perfect for this reason. It enables the Pi to run as a hotspot allowing any of my devices to connect to the Internet through it. That also allows me to SSH into the Pi as well as Kodi through Yatse.

Emby Theater for pi use the omxplayer for playing videos. http://elinux.org/Omxplayer

I use lxsession to start up the start.sh script instead of using [Desktop Entry]. http://www.raspberry...n-lxde-desktop/

Start up a text editor to edit the autostart file:
nano ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart 

Add this line last in the autostart file
@/home/pi/emby-theater-pi/start.sh

 

 

 

I also decided to make a desktop icon to launch emby. You can do this by creating a text file on the desktop named 'emby.desktop' with the text:
[Desktop Entry] 
Name=Emby
Type=Application
Comment=Start Emby Theater
Categories=Application
Exec=/home/pi/emby-theater-pi/start.sh
Terminal=false
StartupNotify=false
Icon=/home/pi/emby-theater-pi/icon.ico

 

 

I know some people avoid the pi as a emby client because you have to manually start theater once the pi boots.

A solution for the time being:

In a terminal on your pi once you have theater installed and running:

cd /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi
sudo nano autostart

At the bottom of this file add:

@xset s off
@xset -dpms
@xset s noblank
@/usr/local/bin/electron /home/pi/emby-theater-pi
Once you have done this, emby theater will start when the pi boots and you can then control it via another emby client (like android).
No need for a mouse / keyboard, or any other hardware for that matter. :)

 

 

These instructions for creating a shortcut and auto starting emby-theater upon boot no longer seem to work on Buster. I am not a Linux expert at all, but can follow instructions to get my Rpi working, does anyone know the updated way to achieve this?

The shortcut gives 'Invalid desktop entry file: '/jome/pi/Desktop/emby.desktop'

 

when trying to add the startup entry it cannot find lxsession, I'm guessing both of these issues are from changed paths, I just do not know what the correct paths should be.

Emby Theater requires Emby Premiere, yes.

You can use this. @Luke might want to add this for others on the main page:

[Desktop Entry] 
Name=Emby
Type=Application
Comment=Start Emby Theater
Categories=Application
Exec=emby-theater
Terminal=false
StartupNotify=false
Icon=/usr/lib/emby-theater/resources/app/icon.ico

Hi,

 

Is there a way for me to get ET to auto-log off a user with inactivity?

 

I have tried the Emby Openelec image and there are no options so I scrapped that and I currently have ET installed on my Pi 4 with Debian Buster trying to get the Pi to log off or shutdown/anything to force ET to logout the last users so my kids only get to see what they are allowed.

 

Many Thanks

No but it's planned for the future. Thanks.
