Hello all, this is my 1st post here!

Can anyone tell me how to stop Emby from creating tons of .bif files in my media movie folder?

I may have turned it on by accident.

I am running Emby on my Mac Pro (black cylinder) and running Mac OS Mojave.

 

Thanks so much in advance!

 

Stephen

Hi, this is only happening because you turned on thumbnail generation and you also enabled the thumbnails to be saved in your media folders. What were your expecting that the option would do?

You have to look in your library configuration, from the dashboard. Scroll down to thumbnail images. After you disable it, run a library scan.

I think there are many sub categories and various locations for setting, so maybe a central control area similar to Plex?

It seems that there are more areas than Plex to make setting changes, but I will learn where everything is.\

I like Emby more than Plex though!

What could we have done to make this easier to locate? Why did you originally turn this on?

Perhaps being a little less of an ass-hat in your initial response would be an awesome start. I had the same question. I can assure you I didn't (knowingly) turn the feature on.

Had to scroll fairly down the thread before someone else provided a succint, helpful answer.
