Since we're off topic and this is sort of an appropriate topic talking about Plex to Emby, I have a question:

 

Has Emby noticed any influx in Emby users this past week? I see dozens (perhaps hundreds) of posts in the Plex forums where people are saying they are not satisfied with Plex's latest updates, and going to try Emby... I'm wondering if that was noticeable here at all or are most users in Plex just saying that but not actually following up on it?

Oh I have and much to elan's dismay, I am quite vocal on the subject.  Emby my NOT be exactly what I'm looking for.  However, I've yet to detect any bit of arrogance from Emby's dev's or Emby users in any thread that I've read here.  That in-of-itself is a point for Emby.

In fact, I took a screenshot of my Emby Premiere portion of my server and posted it within a post of mine over there.  elan removed it, editing in its place "removed obnoxious picture".

Yeah, I'm a dick and.. I'm ok with that.

Thanks!  I wasn't even thinking of it as a feature request, just a note that contributed to the "migration" topic.  But I'll take it! :)

 

Having changed all my images back to 'cover.jpg' and 'folder.jpg,' it appears that Emby isn't very reliable in picking them up anyway.  It seems to get some, but not others.  Are there perhaps other limitations, like file size or something?

No, we'd have to look at some examples. Thanks.

I'll do a little more testing and make sure I'm not imagining things.

I used to use theRenamer until it stopped working on Windows 10. Now I use TV Rename (TV shows) and tinyMedia Manager (movies) for proper naming conventions. Usually don't have issues unless it is a really obscure and hard to find series or movie. I guess that's why my transition to Emby from Plex was so smooth. I use iTunes Match for music, so no experience there...

Same here. Pi$$ed me off to no extent. I managed to get a $56.00 cdn prorated refund on my Plex Pass! Ridiculous when you start deleting people's posts. They deserve the bad press. I may invest that $$ into Emby in the new year after the bills are printed  :( I have been telling everyone on the Plex forums to put their money where their mouth is. Get rid of Plex Pass, delete your account, and use Emby. That is the only way to let those people at Plex know the reality of the situation and force them to act and actually listen to the people. Fear of collapse when your user base pulls out. Maybe it's because I'm French and the revolutionary in me wants to stir things up??

Please add to the count if your Suspending or Uninstalling PLEX & have made the move to EMBY like I have.
It is crazy how fast the numbers add up with just just 4 previously dedicated PLEX admins replying.

 

I turned off the auto boot on PLEX after 7+ years and now EMBY alone auto boots on my server.

Same here. I uninstalled it tonight and removed the app from all Roku and iOS devices. Kids could care less. “What happened to Plex daddy? Oh well, Emby is better”. Nuf said.

I have not uninstalled Plex yet. I have an audiobook library in Plex that my wife and I use almost daily. So I can't uninstall Plex until Emby Server v3.6 comes out, assuming it has at least track-level resume for its new Audiobook library type.

 

Lack of (multi-file) album-level resume would be annoying, but Plex doesn't have that either.

I'm slowly contemplating the full move from Plex. At the moment I run both on the same server with the same file systems but have "curated" the libraries on both by hand. On the whole they are the same. Now what I do have is a lot of watched/unwatched markers on TV series that for my own sanity I would like to try to retain. Has anyone dug deep enough into the DBs on both systems to see if, based solely on media file path rather than metadata, I can export/import a watched tag for my Emby user?

Note I am not concerned about Films or Music, just TV stuff.

@pgalbavy

 

I believe the usual suggestion is to use trakt.tv. Set up the trakt plugin on both Plex and Emby, so it can sync your watched status.

Hi,

I have also few questions before migrating from Plex to Emby and buying Premiere. Is Emby working well with Hauppauge tv cards, does it support dual tuners (live TV and recording at same time, more recordings at same time)? What about transcoding, also same, so if Plex is able to transcode 1080i HEVC (4-10 GB ts recordings from DVR) on Gemini Lake, will Emby also handle them without problems using Intel GPU accelerated transcoding? And last one, does Emby have recording profiles/options (like Tvheadend), or lacks any settings (like Plex) and recordings are just ts as received from TV card?

thanks in advance

Hi, hauppauge is supported on windows, and yes dual tuners are supported as well as gpu transcoding.

We don't have recording profiles but we have a media conversion feature that can convert after new recordings are completed.

Unfortunately my Hauppauge WinTV-DualHD is not working with Emby. Drivers installed, works fine with TV apps in Windows, also Plex can see it, but Emby is unable to find it.

H265 hardware transcoding also doesn't work at all, I get just "Undefined Render error:5" in client.

I can can provide logs, if it can help to solve the errors.

Am not sure about your specific tuner but you might possibly need to install WinTV v8 or later.

 

If thats installed already might be worth sending some logs.

 

You could also try a plugin such as NextPVR.

 

(Bear in mind I'm usually wrong about this kind of stuff...)

Yes please, that would be helpful. Thanks.
