OH Sweet jesus this looks sexy as hell, that's how emby should look 🤩 That makes me excited seeing the work you guys did in just a couple days. The jurassic park one OH MY GOD now that looks like my style haha I love that and the one just below that it looks perfect. Arrbee99 you are amazing 🤩

I finally succumbed and put my css up here -

You might not like most/any/all of it of course. It has a bit in it near the end (the Moving My Media Down section) to either show an online image you pick (such as a Jurassic World one) which would be fixed till you change it, or it'll show a random background of your existing media. You'll have to comment out stuff and un-comment out stuff too swap between the two.

Lots of other bits obviously.

Arrbee99 Thanks for the work you did an amazing job :)  Will this work on my fire stick devices after I add that ? I don't use the computer to watch emby I only use fire stick. I might install emby server on a laptop to try this first so I don't screw up my main server.

This only works on the webapp.

Are you serious 🤨  Well that's no good for me then. All excited for nothing! Great job nevertheless.

I propose to the devs,  the option of have a new style of enhanced home screen on emby devices. 😁

A banner style spotlight. 

Wouldn't that be a good idea? 😃

Stranger things have indeed happened (though mostly on the X-files, which we all know was actually a documentary series...)

btw, have you tried a few of the display options in the Fire TV app, particularly the one that shows media details as you scroll down through the lists on the home page (can't remember what its called unfortunately)...

That would be "Enhanced Home Screen" under Settings>General Display.

If you are referring to the CSS, then yes, this only works for the Web App / Browser - but the other 'Spotlight' features work for all clients - fire stick included. 

There are some pics of how it looks earlier in the thread.

Oh yeah I'm using those settings on fire sticks, rokus as Grim said enhanced features but I want more. After Luke posted that pic I have been trying to replicate that on every and anything even installed kodi again 🥺 I installed every media server I could find and not one comes even close to being as good as emby.

As has no doubt been mentioned (or you've seen), the closest you'll get is Emby Theater in desktop mode (think its desktop mode...).

You can sideload a version of that from here -

 

but I'm not completely sure if that a Fire TV type version. Anyone else know ?

Tv Mode with horizontal homescreen used on Theater or Emby for Android.

The firetv has an Androidtv version, but the mobile version can be easily sideloaded  that’s right.

I will just wait until Luke and emby team make a proper version :)  I'm a hardcore emby fan but just like any software we get a little bored from time to time and want new options and an updated fresher looking media experience. I'm buying a premier lifetime serial number tomorrow after seeing the other options out there it's a no brainer I'm sticking with emby with or without the banner mod.

One challenge with this display on a wide screen, as much as I love it, is we don't have artwork for it that is a perfect match. The banner image type is the closest in aspect ratio, but won't look sharp if we have to blow it up and increase it in size. Or we could take a middle portion of the backdrop image, but I already know the complaints we'll get over having to crop it.

In portrait orientation, on a smart phone for example, there would be no problem though.

But the more I look at it on Apple TV, the more I want it in Emby, so I'd like to try and find a way.

Did you find a way yet 😀  Personally I know you can do this in fact you can do this better than apple has done it, your like a one man army on steroids.

Is there not anyone here that can do this ? Let us add our own banners at the top of emby ? Is it that hard to do ? I want a banner I want to add a few pics like amazon fire stick has up on the top what is the deal guys ?

Can you at least do something like this ? very simple slider allow emby users to add their own images so it shows on their server even if it's just 3 images on the banner that changes after a second or 2. Take a look please https://wowslider.com/bootstrap-carousel-example-shift-demo.html

That would add to the look of emby, so simple yet it would look fantastic am I right ?

This would look amazing no ? https://wowslider.com/bootstrap-carousel-example-shift-demo.html

Now honestly how many people would like this on their emby ? It doesn't even need to be clickable just 3 pics we as users can add for our own banners that show on our own servers for emby clients!!!

Honestly couldn't care less - there are far more important things that need implementing imo. Feature requests imo need a dislike button

Too cheap for custom development.
