Recommended Posts


Emby Server 4.3 is currently rolling out. Here are the highlights.


New Video OSD


The new design features big buttons and big graphics, making it easier and more fun to use.






New Audio OSD
Similar to the new Video OSD design, with different variations based on the type of screen you're playing from.




New Remote Control OSD


The updated design now shares many of the same features as the video OSD:

  • Big buttons
  • Support for thumbnails while seeking

As well as:

  • Clickable links - album, artist, series, etc.
  • Favorite icon to mark now playing media as a favorite
  • 3-dot button to manipulate the now playing library item




Convert to HEVC


Our media conversion feature now supports converting to HEVC !




Conversion Queue Management


This is now a separate section in the server dashboard, and as a result should be much easier to find and use.




Simultaneous Video Stream Limits


This is configurable both system wide as a total limit, as well as individual user limits.




New Screen Saver Options


The Emby web app now includes three screen saver options for Emby Premiere users.

  • Emby logo screen saver
  • Backdrop screen saver
  • Photo screen saver

This is a great way to put your family photos on the screen when you're idling.
