Keep in mind this is a work in progress. The hope is to reduce the amount of duplicate requests and focus the communities input on areas they would like to see improvements.

What about sticking this to the top?


If Jdeisel is volunteering to keep this updated, then I will do that.

I will do my best to maintain the list.


If any information is out of date or incomplete everyone is free to just post in this thread and I will update the list.

This is great, but it seems like a lot of work for @@Jdiesel. I think it would be better if there was an autmatically generated forum that displays all, or maybe top X, of the feature requests, minus duplicate or complete, in order from most to least likes.

Hi.  We're on a very old version of this forum software.  Hopefully, newer versions will have more features in this area.  We have plans to upgrade but simply have not found a good time yet to completely disrupt everything for a period of hours to do it.  We will hopefully find a way to get this done over the coming weeks or couple of months.

Any chance this could be automatically updated? it's gotta be a nightmare trying to manually curate this list.

Quick Idea:

An Emby Buffer for Reboot the host system System.

(Like an Emby option to Reboot the Host Server not Just The Server Process)

(Meaning. If you choose te reboot the physical server, it sends out information to all the active connections under the hood not disturbing the users just to the client apps to expect a downtime of like 1-2minutes, also send out the media streams for 3-4 minutes of play. And it Reboots the system. After reboot the server is up and running knows it was rebooted with intent and where to catch up with the transcodings so it can serve the rest of the media played the clients. On the client side  the client knows the server will go down and it has an extra 2-3 minutes of playtime. When the Server takes longer to reboot ((windows update etc)) the client app informs the user with a wait screen like "Media Server is rebooting Please wait a minute" So users dont get frustrated and take a pee or something. When reconected it can show a "Go On" message or just play automaticaly.) Sorry for the long post, and I'm not an english speaker sorry for grammar also. Peace

Basicaly you push the Reboot Host Icon. Whit an estimated reboot time setted by you it then sends the transcodes to the clients quickly starts a back counter displaying the time it will iniciate the reboot on the server, When all the active clients have their cache filled for 2-3 minutes of play it reboots the physical server.
