You can configure Emby Server to require secure connections.

But that does not block or redirect http://app.emby.media.  Users must navigate https://app.emby.media.

Hello I have my Emby server configured to use ssl by inputting the external domain name and secure connection mode set to handled by reverse proxy. I have nginx secured with ssl and I can successfully hit my emby server using the custom domain url, and certificate is successfully verified for https. 

 

But it seems my users that go through the app.emby.media site and log in using emby connect are still directed to an http site with a not secure connection warning.

 

Is there a simple step I'm missing to get that to redirect to the proper https wan url configured in Emby?

No the users have to use the https connection as there is currently no redirect on the online app.

unfortunate.

 

So it seemed like almost all my users/apps were still able to connect fine after the ssl change, still using emby connect login, apart from an xbox user who had to manually input the https server link. 

 

Would there be an easy way to block http access to it without breaking other things? Would just be nice to make sure my users are using the https functionality I spent time setting up.

 

Or would I probably be incurring more issues than it's worth.

A proxy in front of Emby can be set up to redirect http accesses to https automatically.  I use Caddy as a proxy, because it does this by default with no setting up required (and is also the simplest of all servers to set up anyway).

Right, for that they'll need to make sure to use https://app.emby.media
