Recommended Posts

Hi, i try to change the RemoteClientBitrateLimit via the API.


I like to use /System/Configuration/{Key}, but what is the key name for RemoteClientBitrateLimit?


If I try$apikey

Hi. If you want to manipulate configuration settings, you need to retrieve the entire configuration object, change what you want, and then update with the entire object.

Many thanks! Worked.


here is my script to limit the bitrate depending on the active user count

case `cat /$file_withe_the_number_of_external_users` in.
       jq '. + { "RemoteClientBitrateLimit" : 3000000 }' <<< `curl -X GET "http://$ip:8096/emby/System/Configuration?api_key=$key" -H  "accept: application/json"` > config.json
       jq '. + { "RemoteClientBitrateLimit" : 250000 }' <<< `curl -X GET "http://$ip:8096/emby/System/Configuration?api_key=$key" -H  "accept: application/json"` > config.json
curl -s -X POST "http://$ip:8096/emby/System/Configuration?api_key=$key" -H  "accept: */*" -H  "Content-Type: application/json" -d @config.json
