I thought there would be a group called EMBY.  What command do I use to add EMBY?  Should I mount USB at the same level as Media ?


pi@raspberrypi:~ $ groups
pi adm dialout cdrom sudo audio video plugdev games users input netdev gpio i2c spi

Permission fixed, can access files.  Changed both Owner and Group, are both necessary?

Home videos choppy, will start new topic.



both are not necessary and are specific to your needs.  ie, if you need any other user to have access to the files, then creating a new group called media or whatever and adding emby (and other users) to that group would be the proper way to set permissions.  if not, then emby:emby is fine.
