ombi creates a link directing to emby content, but nothing happens! just black the screen and does not execute the content! After a long wait Emby returns to his menu. The link carries a number that appears to be the content id.

May have to install Ombi again to test, but I would assume they are not using the correct url.  Can you see the url it is trying?

It's the other way around. You need to generate an API Key under Emby>Admin Dashboard>API Keys. Paste this in Ombi>Settings>Media Server>Emby>Emby API Key

I opened an issue report today because I had the same issue -> https://github.com/tidusjar/Ombi/issues/3336

 

When no Externally Facing Hostname is entered in Emby Server settings inside Ombi, it refers to the Emby item over app.emby.media, and this ended up it the dark screen without content also for me. Problem, atm the save option for some fields seems to be broken , at least on all variations I tested today. It seems to be an issue depending on the settings someone made inside Ombi for Emby.

Correct. For some reasons, the Emby settings are broken.

 

I managed to get it working by editing the Ombi DB (Externally Facing Hostname field) with a MySQL Editor and inserted my server domain name. Now it works like it should. But I wouldn't recommend it all for others.

@@shorty1483 I edited the address posted by @@hygorfragas so the "Externally Facing Hostname" should be correct already.

 

Obmi-Settings-Media Server tab-Emby/Jellyfin-Externally Facing Hostname 

This will be the external address that users will navigate to when they press the 'View On Emby' button

but uses app.emby.media if empty as @@shorty1483 mentioned.  Under the input box shows what connection it will use.

Can you edit the box and it gets saved when you leave and reenter the settings page? I tried to edit settings on 3 devices and on every device it fails....thats why I openend the issue on github...

It is a little quirky but yes.  When all your server info is present you have to hit Discover Server Info again to allow the Submit button to be activated again, then you can edit anything and Submit it to be saved.

Holy cow, after hitting the Discover button several times. The Submit button got indeed activated. It seems like unlocking a bonus feature :D

It seems when you compare the settings and Emby image, that a / after your domain is missing compared in the adressbar of the browser. But this is other than my issue. 

 

When Ombi opens https://emby.centerplay.net/#!/item/item.html?id=X, emby should redirect to https://emby.centerplay.net/web/index.html#!/item/item.html?id=X.

 

But this just works for me when I'm logged in. If not Emby redirects to the login page. Is Emby on the same server as your Ombi instance?

OK, this is the point where I'm out of knowledge. 

 

You could try to input domain with a / at the end just to see if this completes the path in the right way.

I'm having this same problem too, but all indicates that this is on the Ombi side. The issue on Ombi Github now appears as closed saying that deleting "Ombiexternal.db" and restarting the server solves the problem (It didn't work for me). But i'm noticing a diference between the url generated by Omby and the one showed when navigating to the same item in the server.

 

 For example when clic on "View on Emby" in the movie Batman Begins it generates this URL:

https://my.domain:8920/web/index.html#!/item/item.html?id=63264

Then when looking for that same movie in tmy server it shows this url:

https://my.domain:8920/web/index.html#!/item?id=63264&serverId=LongStringOfCharacters

 So for some reason Ombi isn't generating the serverID entry on the URL

https://myserveraddress.com/emby/web/index.html#!/item/item.html?id=467687

It's leaving off the ServerId:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx off the end also on mine. I have been trying to figure this out for weeks. if we could somehow add the serverId manually this would work.

The ServerID is not necessary. as the link would also work without it.

The URL is simply generated in a wrong way by Ombi (see the difference between both URLs and leave out the ServerID, than you see what I mean)

 

I opened an issue on GitHub about this. 

https://github.com/tidusjar/Ombi/issues/3455

 

So feel free to add your comments on GitHub.

Yes, yes you are correct sir well done. However i have a feeling he is elbow deep in the V4 of Ombi and not worrying about V3 as i don't think it has been updated in quite some time. If i knew where to change it I would have a crack at it myself.

Yes, seems so. Maybe he will fix it in V4. 

Dont know myself where to look at and what to modify for a differently generated string although this would be no prob at all.
