I installed Emby server on my Raspberry PI 3 recently (Docker official method).


It was a little difficult (linux noob inside :P ) but now all seems to be OK.




i'm now trying to add a library, but there's a problem as i can't find any folder or share hosted / mounted on the RPi :  (as you can see there's nothing but default paths)






(network choice empty too) :






How Emby detects disks and network shares ?


Here is what i have and would want to choose  :  1 usb hdd (ext4) + 1 network share (cifs) :





If it must be set in Docker, how can i do it  (and would it be kept if Emby image is updated ?)



Thanks a lot for your assistance.


Best regards,

Emby within docker only list volumes you mount within the container. When you ran the docker wrapper script "emby-sever" it should have prompted you on the commandline for which directories you wanted the container to have access to. CIFS is still a feauter being implemented. Please mount the share on your host and answer the prompts​ appropriately. If you have already answered the question, remove the existing volume file (.emby.docker.volumes or something​ close). In terms of keeping the image up to date, it is all documented on the hub. Please visit hub.docker.com/r/emby/embyserver. Please read through the documentation, all the information you have requested should be there.

Hi hurricanehrndz,



You are right  :) .


i must have bypassed by mistake the prompt of the 1st Emby-Server launch.

I deleted  /home/<USER>/.emby-server/.emby-server.volumes  then restarted emby-server.


All is now working concerning paths   :D


Thanks a lot.


Best regards,
