I have EMBY running on widows server and i use a Asus Nexus Player to browse and play movies and everything works perfectly but...

Is it possible to have a custom background on the main page ?

By that i mean when i first open up the EMBY app the first screen that loads has a list of the various folders where my movies are stored, can i have a picture in there instead of just a black background ?

Hi, we don't currently have any options for this, but if you don't like black we do have multiple theme options available in the app's settings.

Well you can "Enable backdrops" via User preferences (user icon)-Display and that will randomly display backgrounds from your libraries

Enable backdrops
If enabled, backdrops will be displayed in the background of some pages while browsing the library.

Hi.  If you enable backgrounds while browsing in the app (on by default) the app will show a random backdrop from the item in focus.  So, if you add backdrop images (or the same one) to your library folders, then that should show you a backdrop on first entry.


Does that help?
