[Emby For Kodi] How to delete a file ?

Recommended Posts

Paxalou

Hi,

I use Emby For Kodi in Kodi, to watch movies that are on my server.

Is it possible to delete a movie that is on the server using Emby for Kodi ? I think Emby for Kodi need the permission to do that, so it needs ID and psswd ?

Could you help me ?

my guess is that Kodi would delete the movie in it's database and not the file but I'm not sure.

The normal kodi delete doesn't do it - you need to go context menu >> emby options >> delete from server

There's an option somewhere in the add-on settings to activate it.

.....of course this assumes your emby user has permission to delete from the server.

In my experience it can take up to 60sec for kodi to reflect the change (although the server action is instant).

Ok, but how can I give to EMBY server the permission to delete files from the server ?

I would suggest checking our file permissions guide:

Ok, thanks.

All my folders on my server are owned by me, but this is not the same nick as the Emby user I use.

Maybe is it possible to put this emby user in a group that has rw permissions, no ?

Is the name of this Emby user the same as the one I use to connect ti emby as administrator ?

No, totally different. This is about the files on your file system. When you install emby it creates a system user on your machine called emby. This is the user that needs permission on your system to delete files, otherwise you'll press delete in Emby, but then the files won't actually be deleted.

Ok, thanks !

 

So if i add user "emby" to a group that has rw permission, it should work ?
