We have 3x PS4s in the house and I want each one to map to a different user in Emby when connecting via DLNA.

 

I created 3x profiles copied from the PS4 profile, and amended them based on the Friendly Name (the names the consoles use on the network) but all three still map to the first profile.

 

Using the debug logs I have been able to get the three different device IDs but no matter which of the identification criteria I put it in, it doesn't seem to work.

 

I also tried adding an entry under HTTP Headers but couldn't get anything to work there, either.

 

Any thoughts on how I get this to work?

Tried that ... although just with the device ID pasted in; does it need anything to turn it into a matching expression eg *deviceidlotsofchars* ?

It might, it really just depends on what the device is sending.

I gave it a go, sadly no luck. Trying again today, using the PS4Pro in the lounge (easier to play around with), and even with the asterisk around the device ID in the serial number field, it doesn't match it.

 

[edit for clarification: have tried both with and without the asterisk, same result both times]

 

Attached are the profiles for the LoungePS4 which is should be picking up, and the BensPS4 which it is inadvertently picking up.

 

Also attached is the relevant bit from the logs file... IP address are 192.168.0.10 for Emby, .51 for my laptop used to configure the server, and .20 for LoungePS4.

 

All the devices have static IP addresses, so if I could use the incoming IP address to determine the profile, it would be even easier :D
