Emby Theater on Raspberry Pi


Recommended Posts

Good luck with that it would be helpful to hear your experience with xdotool. I only managed to map few keys with keymap.

To @@denz and our other international friends, there's a new display setting that will allow you to have a separate datetime format setting from the display language.

You'll notice the movie list and tv list screens have a new 3-dot button. this is the beginnings of a view menu for that screen that will allow you to customize and make it your own. the settings will be saved on the server which means they will work across multiple installations.

 

For example @@AdrianW, you'll be able to hide the movie titles from under the posters if that's what you prefer.

 

Enjoy.

Hi

 

Today i tried my first emby setup on rpi.

I have the same problem with the dark picture as cbradley69 described.

I have a very dark picture when using omxplayer on a Raspberry pi 3. Everything looks great using the HTML5, but i'd rather use the app. I have my back light maxed out and it's still very dark. Any suggestions? 

Also i have not a smooth interface. Rpi 3

 

Is there something i can do?

To resolve the issue of installing electron on the latest version of raspbian 2017-04-10 there is a script that will update nodejs, NR and npm (for NR):

 

Once you run this script you should be able to install electron. It worked for me on a PI3.

 

 

update-nodejs-and-nodered

As cbradley wrote in post 286. I think it is the same problem.

My picture while playing the video, is too dark. The emby interface is normal.

I did order my first Raspberry (Model 3B), as I want to use it for Emby Theatre purposes as well.

Is there in the meantime a new client available or do I have go to through this thread?

Cheers, Lati

I got my raspberry 3B, I did install on latest raspbian  stretch dated 29.11.17. 

In order to get electron running, I needed to run update-nodejs-and-nodered (thanks to Rechner123)

I suggest that this information will be amended  in the install instruction of the first posting.

I am able to run emby theater, (without the cec hdmi support), but I also encounter very dark display, it looks like brightness has been reduced by 50%.

Can someone help me on that one?

 

I would appreciate to have a real emby theater client for raspberry in the future. (wish list :-) )

Is the darkness only during video playback?

Yes, only in video playback.

If a movie stops, the darkness is gone.

I found that chromium emby does not have it, but playback stops and hangs.

This does not happen in the playback of the client.

Is there a plan or a time schedule how to proceed on the darkness issue or the further development of an official emby theatre client for rasbian? I'm sure there are a couple of guys outside looking forward to this. Smile.

you type git pull but it hasn't been updated since March i wish i could use this version one again as it supports deinterlacing but for some reason the dark overlay does not disappear.
