WD new Firmware


Recommended Posts

Installed fine, and no problems so far. I'll double check a few more things later in case the new OS interferes with anything but so far so good

 

PS - Thanks!!!!

@Luke

When i try to install the beta version i get this error. How can i resolve it?

Device is connected to the network, even did a couple reboots.  More importantly other applications install (PLEX, Twonky)

I'm getting that same "incomplete download error with both the beta and the stable version. I was also able to install other software, though Emby was the only one I had to do manually.

 

Please help!

sorry for the question..but what should you understand from your post?

I have already tried the 4.6.03. version ... and it doesn't work..
docker I don't know what it is and in the Emby forum for the installation on EX2Ultra it is not mentioned

I kindly ask you to explain better

thank you very much

So I was able to install the beta for OS 5 on my EX4100....when I click to configure it though, it won't connect at all. Any suggestions?

Hi, what do you mean by won't connect?

When I click on configure, it opens up to localhost:8096 but doesn't connect or load. It says the server can't be reached & it says the localhost refuses to connect unfortunately.

Try typing your NAS IP address manually.

NasIP:8096

Instead of localhost:8096 as that probably means you are looking for emby on the device you're browsing from (PC)

I should've specified that I have been putting in my NAS IP address....that's what I meant by "localhost"  😅

I've installed the beta for OS5 succesfully on my WD EX2 Ultra, just to see if it works and will test performance.

On the page Luke mentioned there are two versions. Make sure you use the one with OS5 in the name:

https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby.Releases/releases/download/4.6.0.5/emby-server-western_digital_ex2_ultra_os5_4.6.0.5_arm.bin

First Impression:

I am pleasantly surprised by the functionality (e.g. remote server restart, automatic file detection). It all works, including transcoding, which went smoothly during the short time I tried it. The responsiveness of the UI is slow, though, much slower than the servers on my Nvidia Shield or PC. The EX2 is also working hard continuously CPU usage s constantly more than 50%, often higher than 80%. You can tell the EX2 is not really designed for this kind of apps.

So I think I will stop using the server on the EX2 for that reason, but that shouldn;t stop anyone form trying it out themselves.

Hi, I'm having the exact same issue. After successful install of Emby on my EX4100, clicking the "configure" button opens up a new browser tab (with the correct IP address of my NAS and the correct port) and I get the "Safari can't connect to the server". 

I tried with different browsers and also from a windows machine. Same result. A similar issue was discussed elsewhere (https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/70731-mono-version-of-emby-server/page/5/) by tafelpoowt who found that some libs were missing due to an attempt to rebuild without cleaning the previous output.

Could these two be related?

I'm running firmware 5.05.111 on my EX4100 and tried with emby versions 4.6.0.6-beta and 4.6.0.5-beta (same issue). Trying to connect to emby via the emby app also does not work.

Cheers
