Home assistant & Emby integration

Hi !, I am using this integration for emby in homeassistant atm. https://www.home-assistant.io/integrations/emby/

The bad thing is that it adds every media player / web browser / chromecast, that has been used to play media from emby as a new media player entity. So now I have 60 media players in home assistant. although I only have 5 users on my server.
Can I somehow add a media player myself or disable auto add of new players?


Or remove the integration completely and use the API instead of just getting the media player I want? Then I just need to watch my shield tv, if yes, HOW?

Must be alot of Home Assistant users here :)

Hi, I don't think you can as it's pulling devices from the server. You could remove dead devices from there.

Ok i see :)

But plex has so much options in home assistant. Why is that? Do you have to make more options or is it HA team that has to do it?. Noob question :D

The developer of that home assistant add-on would need to add more options.

Could you tell me how to install emby in home-assistant?Thanks!https://www.home-assistant.io/integrations/emby/

 

I have searched from HACS,it shows the add on is :Emby Latest Media.  I think they are not the same one.

Hi, yes this is the one you want: https://www.home-assistant.io/integrations/emby/

So I think showing latest media is probably part of what it does?

I was confused before and I thought Emby( https://www.home-assistant.io/integrations/emby/) needed to be installed manually.

Now I know that as long as the ‘configuration.yaml’ is configured, the emby entity can be found in the Developer Tools.

Thank you so much!
