Sorry, I'm kinda slow . I'm not following.
Current directory structure in the Emby Library:
Current USB mount point:
The way I understand it, if I were mount the external drive to /media/video (instead of /media/usb), the local contents would no longer be visible. Do you think I'm missing something?
Yes. "The Emby Library" is not a static monolithic thing, it's very flexible in how you can layout and organize your media.
I see where we're not on the same page. You don't have to mount the USB on /media, you can go deeper.
Walking thru this:
Leave the current internal directory structure alone.
Using the example above for now but you can change it.
If you want to stick to the above then you could create /movies, /tv_shows and /kids_shows on the USB root instead of /media.
Mount the USB to /media/usb instead of /media and the local stuff remains untouched.
You can reorganize the USB a little, still mount on /media/usb though you could end up with /media/usb/media/movies, /media/usb/media/tv_shows, etc.
Or pick a different path for the USB mount like /mnt/usb or /mnt/portable, it's up to you.
If you look at my original example it goes nowhere near the internal/local media.
