I am on Arch Linux, installed via the AUR.

 

Many tutorials online show an "Add Media Library" button, however it seems to have been replaced with a system that begins a media scan? I do not want emby to be scanning my system, although it seems to be doing that already.

 

I have terabytes of data, including what is on an external device. The media that I wanted to view in Emby is on an external device, and I changed the user and group of those videos to emby, hoping that Emby might pick them up in its scan while I try to figure out how to specifically add those files.

 

I don't want Emby to scan my system. I want to add a folder or specific files to Emby. Anything I can do?

Also, looks like this needs updating:

Hi, Emby will only scan the folders that you add as libraries in Emby. Does this answer your question?
