Using 3rd party plugin in Emby for servicing content from Google Drive

Recommended Posts

No guide, but that is also why normally I assist people through discord or slack.  I've also helped people by installing and setting up, as long they are using a linux sytem.

Is there somewhere to get the link to the discord channel? Id like to switch over from my current setup but im on windows. i dont mind grabbing a cheap vps to act as the host if gdrive is doing all the hard work. Im assuming this is either staying withing gdrive limits or using the unlimited gsuites accounts?

You can get a VPS or you can also try a GCE.  1 year free trial of $300 will run a good server for 1 year.  After the 1 year you can drop it down to the free tier.

Yes, these should work.  Is it a direct play, direct stream, google transcode stream that you ran into an issue with?

It works on the web browser not the app. If you want I can invite you to my server and try it. My cousin having the same problem. 5b8478ece6493_SmartSelectImage_201808271

I've got the same issue when I do strm playback (when I can get it to playback an actual google transcode)

@@KingMovies Are you still available to play in an instance?

Ive got it setup however scheduling isnt working for me and it cant look through many directories.

 

if i do a manual scan, i can make it work if i go to the show directory. i have my shows set up like /emby/shows/kid shows/hey dugee/season 1/episode 1.mp4 etc. if i tell it to search at kids show it wont find anything, if i have it search at hey dugee it finds the content and makes strm files.

It says it is direct playing.  Is it a google transcode explicit you are playing back or original?

 

My emby connect ID is the same as my username, so if you can add me, I can test.

I created an issue here to track: https://github.com/ddurdle/Python-GoogleDrive-VideoStream/issues/90

 

I'll try to find time to replicate your folder structure and test.  From what I understand from our conversation, you had catalog disabled right?  And when you said you do a manual scan, if you do a manual save strm on "kid shows" folder, the STRMs are not created or are created?

i have ~/emby/shows/kid-shows/chalkzone/season1/episode1.avi for instance. if i scan the chalkzone folder it works flawlessly and as intended. if i scan kid-shows folder it finds nothing.

Are you referring to scanning into Emby? or creating the STRM files?

It should work on both because I have testers on both.

 

Which version of emby?

@ddurdle

 

I were wondering do you still offer support/setup for this? I am very interested in getting this running on the shared vCPU instances using Google Compute Engine. Could you kindly give me a hand setting this up please? I am more than happy to pay you for your time.

 

Thanks.
