Emby interface on AppleTV


Recommended Posts

raevengel

Hi,

I'm curious about the  UI interface of Emby on Apple TV. I've looked for videos which might show this but I can't find any. I know that Roku and Shield have some differences once you get past the main page (such as options available in Playlist playback and the Playlists layout, also additional options buttons, etc). I'm curious, is the Apple TV layout more similar to Shield or Roku? I would be hugely appreciative of any info/thoughts shared as I don't have a way of trying this out myself.

Lastly, what is Infuse on Apple TV and how difficult is it to use? I've seen a lot of recommendations about it and was curious. Thanks so much!

Infuse is a video player for Apple TV. It supports Emby. Since the Emby player is limited, I use it and it works great. But using Infuse you can only play video.

Hi. The functionality should be fairly similar across the apps although the Apple TV has a distinct Apple "style" of interface.

@Luke, sort of. :) Can you answer, does the AppleTV interface have the extra options in Playlists (like "Play all from here). Shield has that, and Roku doesn't (or didn't a few weeks ago when we last used it).

Long press action is not implement. If you select one item from the playlist to play, is equivalent a "Play all from here"

Amazing! Thank you so much for sharing that file. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. I really, really appreciate you taking the time to do that and also to share that it doesn't have the long-press secondary menu - but can get along without it. It makes sense that play in the playlist is automatically "play from here". :)

Hello Again!

I've been away due to the need to travel and have two more surgeries. However, on the way home I was able to get the Apple TV I've been waiting on. :)

I was able to find the interface as described in Playlists in Emby but what I can't seem to find is how to repeat a playlist. I've looked anywhere I could think of but haven't found it yet. Any info/ideas on how to repeat a Playlist? We literally use them daily (or nightly) and need them to be able to repeat. 

Thanks so much in advance for any help on this! I really appreciate it. :)

Hi @all. So i think that is the answer for my question... I installed an emby client to a friend on a samsung tizen system for the first time, yesterday ... i wondered how much better the interface looks like in comparison to the interface on the tvos of apple... what do you think, would it be possible in the future? On the tizen the theme has the name "Emby Theater Interface" right? On which clients i can use this interface?

Hi, are you saying you want the Apple TV UI on other devices, or the Emby Theater UI on Apple TV?

Either way it should not matter as our end goal is to make them all look the same anyway, or as close as possible.

I don't really know what you are trying to tell me with your last answer. But just so we're clear, I have the latest Emby version installed on a Samsung Tizen TV and this is what it looks like now:

I would much prefer to get such a view on the Apple Tv as well. On the MacOS app it already works...
