All our supported plugins can be installed directly from the "Catalog" tab of the Plugins section of the server dashboard.

Yes, I saw that; but I couldn't get it to display PDF files.  That's why I was looking elsewhere.  Where can I find detailed instructions on how to use Emby's "books" plugin?  Something is not working with it.  Also can it "read aloud" as well as zoom in and out of the documents?

There's no documentation for this plugin.  I tried putting EPUB documents on my server, but the eBook plugin still doesn't open them for viewing.  Does anyone know what type of document format works with this plugin?

As stated above, this plug-in is defunct.

I may have misstated my question.  I think the terminology you used is a Content Type called "Books" where you again called it a plugin and it is built-in to Emby.  From the Catalog tab there's a supported built-in plugin called "Books" as shown in the image above.  So that I understand what you are saying is that it is now defunct, but it is still listed as built-in and that is why there is no documentation?  I'm confused on this discussion.  It sounds like someone says that the built-in "Books" is still available, but now it is defunct?  If it is defunct, maybe it should be removed from the Content Type dropdown  list, because it's confusing.

It is defunct as a plugin because it is now built-in.

Supported plugins are shown in the server dashboard under plugin/catalogue

I have been trying to use the built-in "Books" function, but I cannot get to work.  What document format does it use?  I'm not talking about the old plug-in, I'm talking about the built-in Content Type from the drop down menu as shown in some ones image posted above.  It doesn't work or I need to know what document format that it uses.  Does it use pdf, EPUB or what?

From my tests Emby only catalogs books there is no function to read the books.

How are you trying to "use" the books function? To open books to read you must be using a client that supports them. I think android mobile does but I am not certain about that or any others as I haven't any books in my current setup. The android mobile app used to ask you which ebook app you wanted to use to open the ebook Edited by Vidman

I'm viewing videos and listening to music on Emby through my Roku.  There is no instructions that say that I have to play it on a device with applications to run it.  As far as I know the application was to be provided through Emby, not the displaying device.  What good is this built-in "Content Type", if it doesn't work on any device?  I would presume that most people who use Emby will use it on a multimedia device like a Roku through their home network and not just on their computers.

Hi @pc genie, the best thing to do is kindly and politely open a feature request topic for what you're looking for and we'll take a look. Thanks !

What happened to the adult plug-ins? Are they no longer available?

 

They require a compatibility update. The developers have been notified.

Do you expect the same for games?

Are you really wanting to read ebooks on a TV?

Though I admit there is very little info regarding plugins

And the official wiki sometimes lags behind server release features. I understand the Devs have enough on their plate and are hoping community members will step up to contribute in this area

Good idea.  Unfortunately, I'm not a programmer.  Kudos to the developers, but it's difficult for users when there are no instructions.  If no instructions, please provide warnings "No Instructions Provided."
