By default, Windows 8 Modern UI Applications are forbidden to send network traffic to the local Computer (localhost  127.0.0.1)

 

To circumvent this restriction we need to enable Loopback capabilitiy for the Media Browser app.

This is a pretty easy thing to do. Just download the "Windows 8 Loopback Exemption Manager" from codeplex

http://loopback.codeplex.com/

 

Once downloaded, just run the Windows8LoopbackManager.exe file.

Look for Emby in the list of apps. mark the checkbox and click save.

 

That's it. Emby can now communicate with localhost.
