Every time I enter Emby for the first time in a device, I have to configure the app to my taste again, for example, I set the subtitles to a "Yellow" color, with a "Larger" size and the Drop Shadow to "Uniform" but if I reset the app or reinstall the app I have to set it up again.


The idea is to save them in the server (or Emby account?) as a global setting to be applied automatically every time I enter the app for the first time in any device as long as the app supports those particular settings.


I guess there must be also the option to apply a particular setting to a particular device without affecting the others.

We do save as many settings in the server as possible, but some things you may want to configure differently per device due to the different screens you may have, different lighting conditions in different rooms, etc. So those things are assigned to the device and they will be reset if you re-install the app.


Other things like subtitle and language preferences are on the server.
