Grant Emby Permissions to External HD - UBUNTU

I've read through countless threads on this topic with similar situations and I cant find the solution. I have all my media on an external HD. When I'm setting up the server, I go to add a folder for the media, the file path doesn't show up. And when I manually type in the path I get; "The path could not be found. Please ensure the path is valid and try again.".  How can I specifically grant emby:emby permissions to access my external?

When I use;

ls -l /path/to/media

Every file is permissioned my username and my group. How can I change this?

Thanks!

Yes I have. Ive tried doing these commands in Terminal;

 

setfacl -m user:emby:rxw /home/myusername

 

or to grant "read only" access to specific folders:

 

setfacl -m user:emby:rx /home/myusername/Music

 
setfacl -m user:emby:rx /home/myusername/Videos
 
setfacl -m user:emby:rx /home/myusername/Pictures
 
It wont let me change or add the permissions at all.

I found the solution!

sudo chown -R emby:emby /media/user/folder

And now Emby recognises the external!

You could also have resolved the issue by adding the emby user to your group with this command:

usermod -a -G your_user_group emby

I've tried that as well, and didn't work.

On fedora this one worked for me

setfacl -m user:emby:rxw /run/media/username
