Ever since going to the latest versions of Server and Emby for WMC, I have had issues and now it won't play movies.

 

I do not use the web app.  Used strictly as a Home theater device in the home theater.  I have a separate PC which Emby Server (currently v4.0.1.0) runs on and all media is stored.  I also have another PC in the same rack which is the Home Theater PC running Win7 + Emby for WMC + TMT6.

 

 

Here is a pic of my folder structure:

In the main menu my some directories are still showing the HDD location INSTEAD of the latest additions:

5c5b0ad0482f3_20190206_093342.jpg

 

 

 

In "MY Music" it is showing the genres instead of the latest additions:

5c5b0b0be1aef_20190206_093528.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

When I enter "My Music" it just shows the following instead of all my music :

5c47344d26a73_20190122_090210.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

When I add NEW movies, they are no longer showing up in the main menu.  I just added "The Girl in the Spider's Web" bluray yet it is no showing up here:

5c5b0bc904b13_20190206_093554.jpg

 

 

 

 

Lastly,

When trying to watch this movie (or any movies for that matter) I get the following error:

5c5b0c011a0a3_20190206_093816.jpg

 

 

 

What's going on?  Been using Emby since it was just simply Movie Browser.  Not sure If this is a Server issue, Emby WMC issue or both.  Let me know if you want logs from either of those....

Hi, have you updated EMC?

The title of my post says I'm on v3.317.  Is there a newer one that just came out ?

I can still PLAY movies.  At the bottom of my ORIGINAL post I said I got the pictured error when trying to play a movie.  If I press PLAY, the movie will play.  BUT, if I hit ENTER (so I can see the details of a highlighted movie) it gives me that ERROR instead of going into that movie and showing me the details.

Try switching the theme to Chocolate.

 

As for your display issues, explore the configuration settings.  There are options for those items.

I switched to Chocolate, but no change in behavior.

 

 

The MOVIES view is still not updating when I load a new movie. I just loaded "The Girl in the Spider's Web" yet it does not appear in the view below :

5c5b692c49ed0_20190206_170410.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

I just tried to EDIT the views and again got that emby error :

5c5b6b58e54d9_20190206_171614.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

NOW I CANNOT GET INTO EMBY AT ALL.  After trying to change the theme (pic above), now Emby won't let me back in :

5c5b74a1b91fc_20190206_175526.jpg

 

 

Also, there used to be an option in the Configuration list to display Music Albums on the EHS.  That is gone now.

Is that new item marked as watched?  Could there be any parental controls in play?

That's not the Chocolate theme.

 

Please look in Windows Event viewer for any messages related to ehexthost and paste them in here.  Thx.

Notice you are using Throg's themes. First let me assure the combination of EMC 3.317 and server version 4.0.1.0 works just fine because that is exactly what I run with Maelstrom as the EHS theme and Destiny as the Theme selected in the EMC configuration.

 

Throgmorton has updated his themes twice since the introduction of server version 4.* please power off and then back on your server, go into plain vanilla WMC and update Throg's themes, if you can't do that he has posted a dropbox link here because there was a problem with updating them. just copy the DLLs from the drop box link and then update them again once everything runs.

I had that INVALID APPLICATION error.  After I re-ran the emby installer, rebooted my PC and ran the installer again it worked for me.

 

For quite awhile now when I add new media it never appears in EMC until I exit it and go back in. 

Also the status of watched TV episodes doesn't update until I start emc again.

No the NEW item is not marked as watched.  All those movies in that pic have already been watched and are marked accordingly.  NEW movies are not being displayed as of the NEW EMBY WMC + SERVER SW.

 

Also, you are correct, that is NOT Chocolate.  As mentioned in a previous post CHOCOLATE made no difference.  I then changed it back to my original theme.

 I did all that before posting.

 

I have not had any issues with anything UNTIL this most recent round of UPDATES to both EMBY WMC and SERVER.

I'll double check the versions of Throgs themes.  I know it did update them after this debacle.

@One2Go

 

 

WELL....can't check them because......I forgot, Emby will not let me in.

 

 

I think you might be on to something regarding the themes though.  Emby threw up the most recent error right after I tried to change one of the themes via DESTINY.  Now it may be stuck in a corrupted/incompatible theme.  I do remember Throgs themes updating ONCE after the WMC + Server issues.

 

 

But how do I get in to Emby now that it is hosed?  Re-Install did not help since it probably does NOT over-write certain existing config files.

Find the thread in this sub forum about themes not updating from the site, There was a problem with downloading them and it did download them because of the automatic update. You ended up with a bunch of 0 byte DLLs. So find the thread get from the dropbox link the DLLs and then manually put them into the folders on the server. Power cycle and see if that fixes it. I had the problem of automatically switching to Chocolate because it failed to update Throg's themes. This has been fixed though but since you can't get into it you may need to manually copy the DLLs. Check first if you have a few 0 byte DLLs.

 So you're saying that despite having been updated, Throgs themes may have not updated correctly....   I'll check this out!

 

Thanks!

@One2Go

Thanks.  Replacing those DLL's fixed the Error message I was getting.  So that one is solved !!

 

 

 

 

 

@Luke

@ebr

I still have the issue with the EHS not showing new movies and some entries (Concerts) showing the directories instead of the video names (see pics in original post at top).  Plus there used to be an entry in the Configuration to "Show Music Albums" or something like that.  This is what is causing the issue with Music views in EHS (again, see pic in Top post).

 

 

Looking at my config file it appears that the EHS  "should" be displaying the Music Albums :

<Settings>
<InvalidateRecentLists>False</InvalidateRecentLists>
<EnableResumeSupport>True</EnableResumeSupport>
<EnableLocalTrailerSupport>True</EnableLocalTrailerSupport>
<SortUnwatchedByName>False</SortUnwatchedByName>
<ShowNowPlayingInText>False</ShowNowPlayingInText>
<UseExitMenu>True</UseExitMenu>
<ShowMovieSubViews>False</ShowMovieSubViews>
<ShowTvSubViews>False</ShowTvSubViews>
<LastAutoUpdateCheck>2/6/2019 9:33:22 AM</LastAutoUpdateCheck>
<AlwaysShowDetailsPage>True</AlwaysShowDetailsPage>
<EnableVistaStopPlayStopHack>True</EnableVistaStopPlayStopHack>
<EnableRootPage>True</EnableRootPage>
<ShowFavoritesCollection>False</ShowFavoritesCollection>
<ShowMovieGenreCollection>True</ShowMovieGenreCollection>
<ShowMusicGenreCollection>True</ShowMusicGenreCollection>
<GroupAlbumsByArtist>True</GroupAlbumsByArtist>
<ShowMusicAlbumCollection>True</ShowMusicAlbumCollection>
<ShowChannels>False</ShowChannels>
<GroupChannelsTogether>False</GroupChannelsTogether>
<ShowNewItemNotification>True</ShowNewItemNotification>
<ShowNewItemNotificationInPlayer>True</ShowNewItemNotificationInPlayer>
<FavoriteFolderName>Favorites</FavoriteFolderName>
<MusicGenreFolderName>Music by Genre</MusicGenreFolderName>
<MusicAlbumFolderName>Music Albums</MusicAlbumFolderName>
<MovieGenreFolderName>Movies by Genre</MovieGenreFolderName>
<DefaultPosterSize>
<Height>220</Height>
<Width>220</Width>
</DefaultPosterSize>
<GridSpacing>
<Height>6</Height>
<Width>6</Width>
</GridSpacing>

 

 

But it is not as can be seen in pics.  Would you know why the EHS is not reflecting what is in the config file?  Is there something I can change to make this happen?

 

?????  SOLUTION ?????

Borrowed this pic from another thread...BUT....I do NOT HAVE LEGACY BROWSING in  Configuration menu anymore.  Why?

Legacy browsing is no longer supported.

 

If you absolutely require that feature then I would suggest you back up to the 3.5 server and 307 of EMC.

So there isn't a convenient way to still support "Show Music Album Folder" on the EHS without Legacy Browsing?

 

If that's the case,  Where can I download the last versions of Emby WMC and Server that still support this feature?

 

 

Thanks ebr.

 

 

Also, what about that view of "Concerts" showing the folder locations vs. actual titles?

Just install the release version of EMC and you can find all the releases of the server in Github.

 

However, if you are going to go back a server version, you will need to start fresh.  The new version has database changes the old version won't understand.  So you'll need to use the backup plugin to backup your configuration and user data and then wipe and re-install the older server and restore.

 

I apologize for the disruption but we simply could not continue to hold back everything else to continue to support these old methods on what is essentially a dead platform :).
