Hi,

New Emby user here.

My Synology DS218+ directory is called Volume1
Before installing Emby onto the DS218+,
I placed several movies into the
/Volume1/video
directory.

Enable Access to all libraries is Checked.

Carefully following the instructions on
https://github.com/M...i/Library-Setup
The library creation appears to have succeeded.
My chosen display name is EmbyMovies

After doing all that, I went to the My media and found
2 directories, one is EmbyMovies and the other is "Folders."
Trying both, no movies appeared,   All blank

I couldn't find a solution at
https://emby.media/c...ders-structure/
unless it's well hidden.

I searched around Tutorials and Guides, and cannot find
anything describing Movies not showing up.  Perhaps I
made errors in setting up folder structure.

Am I supposed to create a "Collections" directory and
put the movies in it?  If so, how do I do this?

Thank you for a great website and I look forward to
any enlightenment toward (what appears to be) a
directory setup problem.
Thanks much,
Mongoose

check that your emby user has read/write permission to your media folders.

Hi, @mastrmind11,

Thanks for your quick reply.

From within Synology DSM, File Station,
Share user folder (Video)
all users are Read & Write

Advanced Permissions,
     Advanced Share Permissions
           Permissions
 All except Guest are Read/Write

From within Emby
Access to all libraries is checked.

Missing movies (empty folders) persists.

 

Movies in the video folder are in M4V and MP4 formats.  Do I need to

convert them to something else?

Next, I installed Emby onto AppleTV, problem persists, no movies.
Thanks again
Mongoose

Did you setup the user embysvr?

You might have to rescan

Hi FrostByte,

Thanks for the link.  I didn't know I was supposed to set up the user embysvr.  Movies now appear, however,

following the link above, I got lost between Step 7 and Step 8.

I cannot locate  the Path Substitution window (where it reads, Folders, Path Substitution, Advanced)

I searched and didnt find the Step 8 Window, so please tell me where it is, so I

can properly complete steps 8,9, and 10.

 

Above all, Thanks very much!

Mongoose

I think that screen may have changed a little since those procedures were written.  If you click on Library, then your movie library, and then the paths under "Folders" you added you should see a box something like this:
