unable to Connect: Mac

Recommended Posts

Emby worked now it doesn't.  Won't load on my Mac OS10.15.6.  I've dumped the application, re-started, and still nothing working...

Tries to load: http://localhost:8096/web/index.html but comes up with:

Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at localhost:8096.

    The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
    If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
    If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

 

Solutions?

Hi there, have you tried rebooting your Mac and then starting emby server?

Not only has my Mac OS been restarted as already stated, I have also:

updated the OS

zapped the PRAM

uninstalled Emby

Cold restarted the Mac

downloaded & reinstalled Emby

verified Emby is not blocked by either the Mac's or my network's Firewalls

looked for any possible Emby preferences that might screw it up

 

Yet whenever I start Emby, this is all that I get in Firefox:

Emby tries to load: http://localhost:8096/web/index.html but comes up with:

     Unable to connect

     Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at localhost:8096.

         The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
         If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
         If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

 

BTW, Plex is working fine.  Emby worked very well for ~6 months, then this...

Hi Luke,

There's no way that I know of for me to answer your question as I cannot get into Emby because it will not load in a browser.  Do you have another way to laod Emby other than in a webbrowser?

I'm asking you to look in the folder on your mac file system. Can you do that?

Nope, there's no file or folder of any sort of Emby other than the original download and the app in my applications folder.  Since the uninstall listed above, there's no trace of the application's support files.  The attached screenshot is search results of this Mac's hard drive.
