Are you still getting two Emby Server Apps running? I have one with no icon 'EmbyServer' and one with the icon 'Emby Server' (notice the space). The first one with no space is taking up 90%+ of a CPU at all times which is odd.
When updating I always quit the app from the menu bar which leaves the EmbyServer (no space, no icon) running at just under 90% CPU so I quit that one via Activity Monitor before restarting from my Applications folder. If you only type 'emby' into the search bar on Activity Monitor you'll see both, but I suspect if you type 'emby server' you'll miss one.
So far this has the app working fine as far as recordings and such, but it seems like something is amiss, could this be happening to you too Meatball? While I'm at it, is this still normal?
This is with 184.108.40.206
So it sounds similar/related. I don’t have emby running on another machine simultaneously however when I originally setup Emby to test, I ran it on unraid (no issues). I wanted to get familiar/comfortable with Emby before I moved my shares from Plex over. So I did that, was great and moved to Mac with the goal that this would be my new Emby dedicated media server machine and bring my shares over.
When I originally opened this thread I was on the stable Emby release for Mac but restarting Emby while the Mac was running was impossible as outlined in my first post (The issue was common among Emby Mac users.)
Someone on this thread said the beta solved the issue for him. So now I’m on 4.3.4 (beta). Restarting from the menu bar has improved however now I’m regularly not getting Emby to start at boot and if it doesn’t launch, I can’t shut it down to restart it.
As I mentioned some part of Emby is still running in this scenario; if I try to install a new copy or even delete it to start over, I get the error ‘you can’t delete Emby because it is currently open/running’ etc.
However in this scenario now there’s nothing listed in activity monitor to force quit and no evidence of Emby running that I can see. So I’m basically back to square one where I have to reboot to start Emby.
I’m anxious for this to get resolved as I’m very ready to move on from plex. Aside from this issue it’s been great.
