Emby (former Media Browser), beginning with version 3, is no longer a single program. It encompasses a large suite of applications all communicating with a central server that manages your library. No longer locked inside Windows Media Center, Emby can now bring your entire media library to not only all of the computers on your network, but also many of your portable devices. Whether it's the Roku in the living room, or your tablet on the back porch, Emby will bring your media right to you. Requires .NET Framwork 4+.

Announcing Emby Server 4.0

At long last we're pleased to announce Emby Server 4.0. This new release will begin rolling out over the next 24 hours, so please be patient. This has been our longest release period ever, and going forward we intend to get back to a more frequent release schedule. This release is packed with improved performance, updates to existing features, as well as several brand new features.

Important Upgrade Information
After installing the update, the server will begin a database upgrade operation. If you attempt to open the web app during this time, you'll be given a friendly message informing you about this. This operation could take a little time, so please be patient with it.

After this is complete, any plugins you may have installed will require updates, so please check the status of this on your server dashboard. If any plugins are updated, remember that Emby Server will need to be restarted. After all updates have been applied, we recommend that you run a library scan. The first scan following the update could take longer than usual, so please be patient.

With that out of the way, let's go over the highlights of this release.

No Telemetry or Anonymous Usage Reporting

If you're wondering why the anonymous usage reporting setting has been removed, it's because not only have we removed the setting, but we've removed the function altogether. We know our audience pretty well thanks to this community, and because of that we've decided we no longed need any data reporting.

New Emby Live TV Guide Data

As previously announced, Live TV Guide Data is Now Included with Emby Premiere, if you're in the USA, Canada, or the UK. What does this mean? This means if you're in the USA, Canada or UK, you'll no longer need to setup an account with another website nor pay someone else for this data. You'll simply enter your zip code into Emby, select your channel lineup, and we'll handle retrieving your guide data.

We believe this will provide a better experience for Emby users with fewer setup steps. The new data is also quite a bit richer, and we will be looking at how we can take advantage of that to bring new Live TV features to Emby. Going forward, Live TV will require Emby Premiere in the web app, where previously this was not the case.

How to Migrate From Schedules Direct
If you are setting up the server fresh, then you should use our new Emby guide provider, which will be the default. If you are already using Schedules Direct, then you can continue to use it through the remainder of your Schedules Direct subscription. Schedules Direct has pledged to continue to honor your subscriptions, and we thank them for that.

New Levels of Performance

A database re-structuring brings your Emby Server and apps to new levels of performance that were previously not possible. Screens will load faster, videos will start quicker, and more. This will also manifest itself in other areas, such as improved library scan performance, and faster live tv guide refreshes. Please Note: The first scan after the update may take quite a while depending on your library contents and exactly what features you have enabled. Please be patient as subsequent scans will be much faster.

New and Improved Hardware Acceleration

This has been rebuilt from the ground up and is better than ever. We now have sophisticated hardware detection that runs on server startup to determine what your system can support. This allows us to provide you with an "easy mode" setting:

And if you enable advanced control, you'll be able to see what was detected:



Our hardware transcoding has been rewritten to take better advantage of each of the major GPU platforms, whether it be QuickSync, Nvidia, DXVA, VAAPI, MediaCodec, or others. This will allow hardware transcoding performance to perform better than ever.

Best of all, you can now monitor this on the server dashboard. The green bar indicates the current playback position while the orange bar designates the range that has been transcoded so far.

Important: Hardware acceleration has been truly a major effort for us, and because of this, it will now require Emby Premiere on all platforms except for Nvidia Shield and Western Digital.

Transcoding Throttling is Back


This feature has returned after a two year hiatus and is better than ever. What is transcoding throttling? Sometimes your server can transcode content much quicker than you're actually watching it. When the transcoding process gets a big enough lead on your watching position, we can slow it down on the fly in order to reduce the load on your server. Then as you're watching, if we need to speed it back up, we can do that too.

And best of all, your server dashboard will show you when transcoding is being throttled:

Emby Server Now Available for Android and Nvidia Shield

Stay tuned for separate announcements.

Improved Search

Search is now faster and now supports fuzzy search! This means you don't need to type your searches perfectly in order to see the matches you're looking for. For example, if you accidentally enter "Bad Breaking", instead of "Breaking Bad", you'll still be able to see Breaking Bad in the results.

Multi-Resolution TV Shows

Without requiring any changes to your file names, we now support having multiple versions of episodes. This doesn't require any special setup and you'll now see the friendly version selection on the episode screen:

Revamped Grouping Into Collections

This has now been moved from a server setting to directly onto the Movies list screen where it can be easily toggled.

Expanded Filtering

You can now filter on more fields such as container, video codec, audio codec, subtitle codec, and more. This filters are also remembered !

Expanded User Library Access

User library access can now be controlled for sub-folders, providing you with even greater flexibility than before.

Emby Server 3.0.5870 Released

February 14, 2016 Emby Uncategorized Comments Off on Emby Server 3.0.5870 Released
A new release is slowly rolling out to the stable branch, containing new features, bug fixes, and performance improvements.

Important Information About This Release

After restarting, Emby Server will perform a database upgrade. This process may take a little while, so please schedule your upgrade accordingly. During this time, your local Emby web interface will be the only app you’ll be able to access. Due to the database upgrade, we do not recommend attempting to roll back to any previous release after installing this version.

Depending on how old your server installation is, you may see some user settings reset, such as view orders and grouping settings.

These database upgrades are laying the foundation for some pretty dramatic performance improvements in future Emby Server releases. We ask you for your patience during the upgrade process.

Here are the release highlights.

Convert Your Recordings on the Fly

When scheduling recordings, there’s now an option to convert your Live TV recordings on the fly to streaming friendly MP4. Storing your recordings in MP4 is a great way to help avoid transcoding during playback, as it is compatible with a broad range of devices. This feature requires an active Emby Premiere subscription.

New Cinema Mode Features

This is a treat for our advanced users. Now, in addition to custom intros, you can assign intros based on audio codecs and tags. Have you ever wanted to create a custom intro for all your movies with DTS audio? Now you can. Or how about a custom intro for all of your Valentine’s Day flicks? Now you can using intros by tags.

Improved Chrome transcoding
Faster web client performance


Emby Server Beta 3.0.5781.6 Released

Team,
We’ve released another patch release. This one will start as a beta and hopefully move along to stable by the end of the week. There is one important fix and a few new improvements.
Fixed: Roku crash when playing content with a runtime longer than 2 hours

Thanks to the community members who helped track this one down. You can read more about this issue here:

https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/27511-roku-reboots-when-starting-playback/

Improved Chrome Transcoding

This is a very exciting improvement that dramatically reduces cpu utilization when transcoding with Chrome. If your source content is h264, and certain conditions are met, you’ll now enjoy the original video stream as-is, without any conversion except for the audio track.

Internal Web Client Improvements

This is the main reason we’re starting this release as a beta. Although you won’t notice very many visual changes, the web client has been getting revamped under the covers and you’ll notice faster browsing performance all throughout. Please report any issues you come across and we’ll resolve them as quickly as we can.

Linux Package Improvements

We’ll have a separate post about this, but our linux packages are seeing a lot of improvements as well. Notably:

Added support for openSUSE Tumbleweed and Leap
Beta and Dev releases are now using the package embymagick for ImageMagick libraries. embymagick does not get installed as a system library, so there should no longer be conflicts with distribution releases of ImageMagick.
New restart wrapper script, in order to alleviate some of the issues posted by users.
Sudoers file has been updated, restart permission have been moved to the group emby rather than the user emby.
Emby-Server start wrapper script ensures user running emby-server is part of emby group, and thus are granted restart permission.
Support RPI 1 thanks to openSUSE ARM factory. Please see the following: https://en.opensuse….org/Portal:ARM
AARCH64 will be supported as soon as there is a release from the mono team.
Used mono aot (ahead of time compiler) to hopefully increase performance.
Debian maintainer post install script are set to ignore home of user emby, use default configuration file and etc conf file rather than /etc/passwd to determine were user settings should be kept.

Stop playback when ending Chromecast session from web client

Emby Server 3.0.5781.4 Released

A small update to the previous release has gone out, with several fixes and one notable new feature. Here are the highlights.
Encoding with Intel Quick Sync is Here!

There’s a lot of great changes going on in our dev branch. Seriously, if you have a system to spare for testing, you should think about joining in on the fun. Quick Sync encoding has been sitting in dev for a while and we’re excited to finally bring it to you. Please note – we’re still considering this experimental and it is not yet supported on all operating systems. It’s currently limited to Windows and select Linux releases.

To try it out, just enable it in the server dashboard. Important: Your setting for hardware decoding has now been reset and merged into one hardware acceleration setting.

Posted Image

Additionally, this is also available within context menus.

Posted Image

Faster Subtitle Editing

Similar to above, now you can click “Edit Subtitles” from within context menus to quickly search for internet subtitles. Remember to first configure your Open Subtitles account in the server dashboard.

Posted Image

Add to Collection from Any Screen

Collection management has been moved out of the metadata manager and is now available on nearly every screen, allowing you to add content to collections from wherever you are, including search. To remove items, visit the detail screen for the collection.

New Multi-Selection

Performing bulk operations is now a snap with the new multi-select feature. To activate, simply click and hold on just about any poster on any screen.

Emby Server 3.0.5724.6 Released

This is a small bug-fix update to the previous release to help tide you over while we work hard on the next major release. The following issues have been resolved:
Fix occasional hang with automated server restarts on Windows
Fix presence of ffprobe data stream causing subtitles to be ordered incorrectly, leading to occasional transcoding failures.


Emby Server 3.0.5724.5 Released

This is a small bug-fix update to the previous release to help tide you over while we work hard on the next major release. The following issues have been resolved:
Fix external subtitles sometimes requiring burn-in via transcoding.

Fix frame by frame analysis for linux

Content with unidentified parental ratings are now considered unrated instead of always being allowed. This way, if you enable block unrated content, you will not have to worry about accidentally exposing your child to adult content just because the server couldn’t understand the rating.


Emby Server 3.0.5724 Released

This is the stable release of the previous beta, which you can read all about here:
http://emby.media/community/index.php?/blog/1/entry-239-introducing-the-new-live-tv-for-emby-and-emby-server-beta-305713/
Here’s what changed during the beta period:
A Better TV Guide
The guide now has more clearly defined distinctions between program and channels cells:
Posted Image
New Kodi Dlna Profile
If you use Dlna with Kodi, we’ve added a new profile designed to encourage as much direct play as possible. Thanks to the community member who supplied this.
New Bravia 2014 Profile
Also from the community we’ve added a Dlna profile for Sony Bravia 2014 models.
More Efficient Scheduled Tasks
Many of the tasks have been updated to run less frequently, and many have been removed from startup, enabling you to start the server and enjoy your media immediately.
NFO Parsing Improvements
We’re now able to handle nfo’s containing Ascii art and an imdb url.
Remote Control Improvements
Now when you control a player, you’ll have the option to shutdown the app on the remote device (if applicable). This has been requested for Chromecast quite a bit recently.
New Video Deep Scanning
If you can live with longer scans when importing new videos, then enable the new frame by frame analysis setting. In return the server will be able to further optimize transcoding by encouraging video stream copying whenever possible.


Emby Server 3.0.5713 Beta

Introducing the new Live TV for Emby (and a new Emby Server beta)
Started by Luke , Aug 21 2015 05:35 PM

A new beta server is currently going out and now includes built-in Live TV support, improved performance, and many other enhancements.
Now Supporting your HD Homerun Tuner, No External Software Neede
As you know we really enjoy Live TV here at Emby, but with our support previously dependent on external software, we know that it hasn’t always been easy to get up and running. Today, we’re pleased to bring you built-in Live TV support that does not require any additional software. Let’s go over how it works.
Automatic Discovery of your HD Homerun Tuner on Your Network
The startup wizard makes this very simple for you. In most cases, we’ll be able to discover your tuner devices. If not, then you can easily enter the IP Address of the device.
Posted Image
M3U playlists are also supported as a tuner source.
Easy Guide Data
Currently we have one source, and that is Schedules Direct, but we plan to add more sources for additional countries in the future. We’d also like to support Xml TV data. Setup is very easy. Just enter your info and you’re good to go.
Posted Image
Your DVR Has Never Been Easier, Never Looked Better
We think this screen speaks for itself. Rich metadata displays make it very easy to find something you’d like to watch, or record.
Posted Image
Enjoy Live TV on Multiple Devices
Whether it’s Android for smart phones, tablets, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Windows Tablets, Windows Phone, Roku or a web browser, Emby has you covered. Stay tuned for iOS support as well as the new Emby Theater!
Posted ImagePosted Image
Our complete list of apps is available at:
http://emby.media/download/
Automatic Tuner Pooling
If you have multiple tuner devices, great! Emby will automatically group them into one virtual channel grid, and will appropriately delegate streaming in order to prevent conflicts from multiple clients.
Supports HD Homerun Transcoding
If you have an HD Homerun that supports H264 transcoding, Emby will take advantage of it whenever possible in order to offload transcoding and preserve resources on your server machine.
Unrivaled Parental Controls
Would you like to limit the programs and channels your children can access? It’s easy, and it’s nearly automatic. When you set a max parental rating for your users, they will not even be able to see restricted programs in their TV Guide.
Posted Image
To block entire channels, you can set your own parental ratings for certain channels, or you can use the block by tags feature.

Seamless Integration with other Emby Features
This is the fun part you’ll enjoy most. Other Emby features that are designed for your media library are also accessible from Live TV. Just to name a few:
Mobile Sync and Cloud Sync:

Suggestions:
Posted Image
Auto-Organize:

User Data Cross-Over
Your likes and watch states are now transferable from Live TV movies to movies in your media library. We plan to soon bring the same features to TV series, allowing you to blend data from every possible source into one seamless experience. Only on Emby.
More Live TV to Come
We wanted to get a beta out to let you all start playing with it, but there are plenty of enhancements already in our minds, such as:
Manual conflict management (currently Emby will try to automatically resolve recording conflicts)
On the fly conversion of recordings into streaming-friendly formats
More in-video features to quickly change channels
New and Improved Search
Live TV and internet channel content are now searchable!
Posted Image

Repeat Mode
Now you can toggle repeat mode using the now playing bar. It allows you to quickly change between Repeat None, Repeat All, and Repeat One. Not only is this supported by the local player, but also when remote controlling other players that have added support for it.
Posted Image
Play a Slide Show while you listen
The next time you play a song, head over to the now playing screen. There’s a new button that will allow you to launch a photo or movie backdrop slideshow that will play and transition between images while your media is playing in the background. It’s a perfect time to put family photos up on the screen with your favorite songs playing in the background.
Posted Image
Much Cleaner Detail Screens
We think you’ll agree. Detail screens are easier to read and focus on the things you love most.
Posted Image
Posted Image
Taglines are Back in Style
We really haven’t used them in a while due to the number of metadata features we have. But they add a nice touch to your movie screens, we just felt we had to bring them back.
Posted Image
New Voice Commands Added
You can now switch devices as well as toggle display mirroring. Just speak the following out loud:
Control [device name]
Enable/Disable/Toggle display mirror
Other Changes and Fixes
Fixed people getting lost when local metadata saving is not enabled
Sym links not working on certain Linux distros
Music artist screens now display similar Artists
Fix live tv stream closing on Roku
Fix Portugese with open subtitles
Dlna special views use series images for better episode identification
Fixed Chromecast Live TV playback
Movie ratings not respecting language settings
Single quotes in subtitle file names causing transcoding failures
Mobile sync for apps will now prevent duplicate synced items
Fixed roboto font url
Existing Feature Changes
As we add new features, we constantly have to re-evaluate and look for ways to ensure the system continues to perform well and is easy to use. So to that end, here are a few changes that we’ve made:
Support for MB2-style shortcuts has been deprecated in order to improve performance. They are still supported for boxsets, but if you need them elsewhere you will have to set a hidden config setting, EnableWindowsShortcuts.
The internet channel content downloading feature has been moved to a plugin. All features are still available, it’s just in a plugin now.
For fresh new installs of the server, there will only be one supported metadata saving format per content type. If you need xml saving it is being moved to a plugin. Please note – the feature remains in the core server code for existing server installations. That means your existing install won’t be disrupted at all. But the next time you install from scratch, you’ll need the plugin if you want the alternative formats. Also, this doesn’t affect xml reading, as we want the core server to be able read as many formats as possible to make it easy for new users to get up and running.

Emby Server Beta 3.0.5666 Released
Started by Luke , Yesterday, 12:45 PM

A new server beta is available, and it’s primarily a maintenance release due to our focus on new app development.
New Social Media Sharing
Before we begin: this feature does not share any media files, only web pages containing media information.
Share your content over Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and more!
Posted Image
When you share, a temporary, public url will be created on your server that will display static information about your media. Here is an example:
Posted Image
As you can see, it looks like just the regular detail screen except that nothing is clickable, or even playable. It is simply an information page. It’s a great way to share info about media you enjoy, while promoting Emby at the same time!
The url’s that are generated are time-limited and will expire after 30 days. In a future release we may allow you to customize this. Please note, only the content you share is available through these links, and not the entire library.
As always, we understand that not everyone will want this, so it can be disabled per user as desired.
Posted Image
New Now Playing Design
The now playing bar has been redesigned to remove clutter and make the most important functions more accessible.
Posted Image
In addition, all sliders throughout the interface have been replaced with newer, sleeker versions that provide previews of where you’re seeking to.
Posted Image
Finally, the now playing screen has also been revamped into something you’ll be much more likely to want to pull up on a big screen.
Posted Image
Other Issues Resolved
Movie titles reverting to English
Video player time position not being displayed
Folder sync file transfers moving slowly


Emby Server 3.0.5641 Beta Released
Started by Luke , Jun 10 2015 05:29 PM

A new beta has gone out. This is primarily a maintenance release. Here are the changes.
Restructured Live TV Database
The live TV database has been significantly improved, making it faster for our apps to retrieve guide information. In addition, the server is longer dependent on startup execution of the Guide refresh scheduled task, which will allow you to get into Live TV immediately after startup.
Faster Live TV Start Time
Up until now we have been probing live TV streams for media information. On some servers this has been taking a long time, so we’ve removed it. Expect live tv to start faster now.
Emby Connect Fixes
There have been some problems reported with linking users to Emby Connect and we’re happy to say they’ve been resolved.
DLNA Playback Fixes
Thanks to nullpointer, some fixes have been added that resolves playback issues with Samsung TV’s, Sony, Panasonic, and others.
Try the new Voice Input
Supported by Google Chrome. This is really a new thing and is going to take time to mature, but it has such a high fun factor that we decided to give you a taste of it. If voice control is something that interests you, then make sure to join

Posted ImagePosted Image
Redesigned Now Playing Bar
The now playing bar of the web client has been redesigned with bigger, prettier buttons and a little transparency. We think you’ll enjoy it when playing audio or remote controlling other apps.
Posted Image
Others
Resolved incorrect aspect ratio when transcoding anamorphic content with Android TV & Fire TV
Resolved issue of file handles being left open in Linux when extracting chapter images. This was the primary cause of the Unbutu crashing being reported.

Emby Server 3.0.5588.1 Released
Posted by Luke

This is a small maintenance release that we're pushing out to resolve a few issues that have been reported. This should move to stable very quickly. Among the issues resolved are:
External streaming with Android
Live TV streams not being properly closed
Tvdb language override not falling back to English when appropriate
Playback stopping prematurely on Chromecast


Emby Server 3.0.5582
Posted Today, 12:35 AM

This is predominantly a maintenance release but there are some new goodies to enjoy. Without further ado, here are the highlights.

Control Your Cloud Sync Upload Speed

You can now configure this in the sync settings area.

552c90cd655e6_s1.png


Manage Your Sync Conversion Speed

Now you can control both the speed and the number of CPU cores that are utilized by sync conversion tasks.

552c90feceef3_s2.png

New Sync Management Settings

Suppose you'd like to give your users access to Sync, but you don't want them hammering your CPU. Now you can limit their access to sync transcoding so that they're only able to sync original files.
552c93ad81216_s2.png

New User Management Settings

You now have the ability to limit a user's access to transcoding, another tool at your disposal to conserve your CPU.
552c9400c8a4c_s1.png

Keep in mind that taking away transcoding could make it impossible to play some content on certain devices. When this happens, your users will receive a friendly error message:

552c94781c758_s1.png

We're working hard to get these graceful error messages into every Emby app. Please be patient while we do this.


New Streaming Management Settings

Suppose you have limited upload speed and want to enforce a cap for all remote clients. Now you can easily do this from the Streaming settings page.
552c94e48eeca_s1.png

Keep in mind that reducing the allowed bitrate will make transcoding more likely to occur. But as with everything else, it's all your choice.

An All-New Live TV Guide

The guide now fills the screen and is a joy to scroll or flick through. It's fast, it's it's pretty and it's now free of the double scrollbars it had before.

552c970f50383_s1.png

And when you're mobile, it's a whole new experience that's easier and friendlier than ever.

552c990f57c5c_s1.png

Sync Your Live TV Recordings

Supported by Cloud Sync, Mobile Sync and Folder Sync!

552c92e8b109c_s5.png

Direct Play Live TV from Supported Clients

If you you're on the Emby Theater beta channel, you'll now enjoy Live TV without any transcoding, subject to support from your installed Live TV provider.

Beautiful Dynamic Thumbnails for Collections & Playlists

We think you're going to really enjoy these. Make sure to thank t.andre in the community.

552c91c33f4b7_s3.png552c91caa0000_s4.png

Recap

A new version of Emby Server has been released with some exciting new additions. Before we go over them, if you missed our recent Emby announcement you can read all about that here:

http://mediabrowser....troducing-emby/

Introducing Cloud Sync & Folder Sync

We worked really hard on sync during this release cycle to bring you new features that you'll find useful. Cloud & Folder Sync allow you to sync media to external locations, whether it be for backup purposes or to archive content in multiple resolutions. Apps can then stream the content from the cloud instead of your server, thereby sparing your upload bandwidth.

Let's say for example you have an original copy of a movie at 40Mbps. It looks fantastic but will require transcoding anytime you'd like to stream to Roku. Now you can sync that movie to the cloud and choose a profile that will allow Roku to direct stream:

Posted Image

When your users stream the content, they'll direct stream from google drive rather than rely on your server for transcoding.

To setup Cloud Sync or Folder Sync, see the Services tab of the Sync control panel. Look for separate blog posts on these soon with detailed walk-throughs.

Posted Image


Cloud & Folder Sync are your General Purpose Conversion Tools

As you sync content you're free to choose the conversion profile that will determine the output format. In future releases we intend to allow you to modify these profiles directly and even create your own.

Posted Image


Syncs Your Subtitles
When you sync to the cloud, your subtitles will be converted to multiple formats, ensuring they're always available no matter what device you're playing from.

Goodbye GDI, Hello ImageMagick
We've migrated all of our image processing functions from GDI to ImageMagick, thus clearing the way for the server to run smoothly on NAS devices such as Synology. Look for a Synology package soon. While we were at it, we learned a few new tricks, and in the future you may see the server create more beautiful, automatic images such as

A big thanks to t.andre for his efforts on this!

Big thanks to @hurricanehernandez


Enhanced Live TV Metadata
Live TV will now be enhanced with internet metadata for movies, and the suggestions page in the web interface now has an Upcoming Movies section. Big thanks to ChubbyArse for this!

New Scheduled Task time limit

Now you can configure time limits for scheduled tasks, perfect for long running overnight jobs that you don't want running during usage hours.

Support more WTV metadata

We'll now extract episode information from embedded metadata in the event the file is not named according to TV naming recommendations. This hasn't made it to auto-organize yet, but it's planned for the future.

DLNA Cast & Crew Setting

We like rich metadata, but we understand many people just want the quickest path from point A to point B. The server dashboard now has a setting to turn off the Cast & Crew feature.

New Fanart.TV Images

Support has been added for the following images:
Season posters
Season banners
Other Fixes
Detect incomplete nfo's and supplement with internet metadata
Fixed playlist content being playable when it shouldn't be
Resolved browser-based live tv playback issues

Media Browser Server Beta 3.0.5482.4 Released
Started by admin , Today, 04:35 PM

This is primarily a maintenance release but does have a few important additions and changes.

Check out the new Wiki:

https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki

We've been working hard on a new wiki to help document all of the features of Media Browser. So to that end...


In App Help:

You'll now see conveniently placed, context-sensitive help buttons through the web interface.

54a8de95d1b68_Untitled.png

When you click a help button you'll be taken to the corresponding wiki page that will help walk you through the feature. Be patient with us if some of the wiki pages aren't yet complete, they will be soon.


User Device Access

Now you can configure the devices a user is able to utilize to connect to your server. This setting will affect everything from logging into that device, to remote controlling it, and to the users that are displayed publicly on that device's login screen.

users17.png


Identification Options

Now when you use the identification feature of the metadata manager, you can choose whether or not to replace images as part of the operation.

54b2de8263c69_Untitled.png


Expanded TV Naming Support

Our parsing of episode file names has significantly improved and is now based on Kodi's engine and rules. This will dramatically improve our ability to find internet metadata. In a future release, look for the rules to become configurable similar to Kodi's advancedsettings.xml.


Changes to Mixed Folders and Complex TV Structures

In order to avoid incorrect content matches, we are no longer going to attempt to auto-detect the contents of mixed folders. It will be up to you to use the metadata manager to set the content type of the sub-folders contained in your mixed library. The "mixed movies & tv" type has now been renamed to unset. That is, when you setup your mixed folder, you are leaving the content type unset, and will then set it manually on the sub-folders using the metadata manager:

librarysetup2.png

While this will be a manual process for users who like mixed folders, it will also eliminate the possibility of incorrectly determining the content type.


Bugs Resolved
PGS subtitles not working in the web client
Search was returning missing & unaired episodes

This is a small maintenance release but we've still managed to squeeze in some fun new features. Without further ado, here are the highlights.

Faster Browsing

We've trimmed some fat from our api output and you'll notice faster response times in all clients, particularly the web client and raspberry pi. Expect even more improvements in future releases.


Cast & Crew added to DLNA

Now when you browser your movies, you can see the cast & crew for each movie.

You can even click into an actor to see what other titles they appear in:

Try the Hosted Web Client
We now have a hosted version of the web client at:

http://app.mediabrowser.tv

Simply use your Connect (forum) login, and then you can access any of your servers (owned or shared).

54529050a5167_Untitled.png

Once you sign in, you'll see the very same web client you've come to know and love. Switching servers is easy:


Media Browser Server 3.0.5445.6 Released
Started by admin , Yesterday, 03:30 PM

We've released a small follow-up stable release to address an issue that caused Media Browser Classic to crash under certain conditions.

In addition to this, let's recap everything that was introduced within 3.0.5445.5.

New Server Releases

As many of you know, we've worked hard to get the server released onto new platforms. Over the past two weeks we've had several releases, with more soon to follow.

ArchLinux: http://mediabrowser....-on-arch-linux/
CentOS: http://mediabrowser....ble-for-centos/
Fedora: http://mediabrowser....ble-for-fedora/
FreeBSD: http://mediabrowser....er-for-freebsd/
FreeNAS: http://mediabrowser....le-for-freenas/
OpenMediaVault: http://mediabrowser....en-media-vault/
Ubuntu: http://mediabrowser....opic-and-vivid/
Mac: http://mediabrowser....-now-available/



New DLNA Genre Views

DLNA browsing has been enhanced with new genre presentations for movies, tv, music and games.

5473d02951255_Screenshot_20141124193926.


New Web Client Filtering

A number of screens have added new filtering. You can now filter by Genres, Parental Ratings, Tags, Years and more.

5473cc431345d_141mxkx.png

As always you can expect to see these filters in other apps soon.


New Card Views

By now you all should know we like to keep up with technology and design trends. We've taken some inspiration from Google Play and added new card layouts that display more information and provide single-click access to important functions.

5473ccc70a428_5463feb5a2fb1_Untitled.png

Note: These functions have already been available via right-click and tap-hold menus, but we realize not everybody knows that.


Revamped Movie Filename Parsing

We've revamped our movie file name parsing as part of our new file naming project. We now fully support Kodi standards and features and have a greater ability to handle non-clean file names. We're starting with movies and in a future release you can expect to see the same treatment applied to TV.

Specifically the Kodi features we now support are:
Video file extensions
CleanDateTime regex expressions
CleanString regex expressions
File stacking expressions
And more
Get involved with the file naming project: https://github.com/M...aBrowser.Naming

A number of people have gotten involved by reporting failing test cases that ultimately led to the improvement of the project. Thanks for that!


Parental Controls via Tags

Now you can use tags as another weapon in your arsenal to filter content from users within your household. Simply add tags to items via the metadata manager, then configure user parental controls.


Media Browser Server 3.0.5441 Beta Released

We're back with a small follow-up to our previous release in which we introduced Media Browser Connect. For those who have not seen that yet, you can catch up here:

Media Browser Server 3.0.5416 Beta Released
Started by admin , Yesterday, 11:53 PM

As many of you know, we have a lot of really smart people here in our community, and great things happen when we put our minds together. We've been longing for a way to make it easier to access your server when you're away from home, and we're pleased to announce our solution. It's Media Browser Connect.

Now you can use your forum username and password to sign into any Media Browser app from any location, and it will know how to locate your server in the most efficient way possible. This means you no longer have to fumble with IP addresses. Not only does this make it easier to access your server, it also makes it easier to mange multiple servers and share with your friends.


So how does it work?

It's very easy. For existing users that you've already setup, simply edit their user profile and enter their forum username or email address. The local server account will then be linked to the forum account. Once they accept the invitation email, they'll then be able to use their forum credentials to sign in to your server, without having to know the server's IP address.

5452981e6e667_Untitled.png

In the user list, you'll see a cloud to indicate the user has a Connect account.

5452985d55657_Untitled.png


Invite Your Friends

You'll notice a new Guests section on the user management page.

54529b1f8e797_Untitled.png

What are guests? Guests are forum users that you've invited to use your server. Simply click the plus button next to Guests, and you'll be presented with a popup to invite a forum user. You can even choose which libraries they'll have access to.

By default guests have very limited permissions, and you'll have full control over what they'll have access to.

Local Accounts, Cloud Accounts - You Decide

While we expect this feature to be very popular, we know that many prefer local accounts and we're pleased to say they're not going anywhere. Both of the features work very well together and we expect to continue to improve on this.

App Support

This has been a large team effort and you can expect to see updates for all of our apps soon. Here's a few teasers to wet your appetite.

Try the Hosted Web Client

We now have a hosted version of the web client at:

http://app.mediabrowser.tv

Simply use your Connect (forum) login, and then you can access any of your servers (owned or shared).

54529050a5167_Untitled.png

Once you sign in, you'll see the very same web client you've come to know and love. Switching servers is easy:

5452906b7ead2_Untitled.png


As you can see the layout is currently limited to one server at a time, but this is only the beginning. We know that many of you are clamoring for multi-server presentations, and we intend to deliver that in future releases.

The hosted web client has one unique advantage over the local version. It features automatic network switching from LAN to WAN and vice versa, on the fly as needed. You might login initially within your home network, and then leave the house and transition to mobile. The app will handle it for you, all on the fly. The hosted web client is truly one url, any time, any location.

Important Note: The hosted web client is served via static HTML and JavaScript. All communication occurs directly from your browser to your Media Browser Server, just like the regular web client. We do not have any external servers that send requests to your home server, and we do not collect any information about your media library.

New Devices Section

There is a new Devices section in the server dashboard. Many of you have asked for device-specific settings and we now have a place to put those. For starters, you can configure a friendly name for each device, to override the name reported by it.

545283933127e_Untitled.png

Automatic Camera Image Uploading

You'll notice the Devices section has a Camera Upload tab. Camera upload allows automatic uploading of images from your smartphones and tablets. It's easy! Just enable the devices you'd like to use it for, and voila!

Then go out and take some pictures, and when you come home the images will begin uploading. It's a fully automated feature. All of our mobile apps will be updated soon to support this.


545286d63f624_Untitled.png

If you like, you can even specify a custom upload path for each device to keep albums separated. Here is a preview of image uploading on windows phone:

5452a65d8bfe3_PhotoUpload.png


New Parental Control Features

Now you can define access schedules for users to control when they have access to your server. It's very easy and only takes a few clicks to setup.

54527f434bea6_Untitled.png


When users try to use the server during restricted hours, they'll see a friendly message indicating that they'll need to come back later.

54527f7cf1e34_Untitled.png

Expect to see more parental control features in upcoming releases.


New Trailer Features

We know that trailers is a big part of movie watching. The Movies section of the web client now has a Trailers tab, which will pull trailers from all available sources (channels, files, etc).

54527cc4546f7_Untitled.png


There's even a new nifty Trailer Reel button. What is the trailer reel? It's the ability to create a long running playlist of random movie trailers. This makes for great background video while you do the dishes.

54527d6b4598d_Untitled.png


The best part about the trailer reel feature is that remote control is fully supported. You can send a trailer reel to any Media Browser app that accepts remote control commands.


DLNA Improvements

You'll notice better dynamic category images that are based on the content within your library.

5452f848194b9_Screenshot_20141030224446.

Movies that have trailers or extras are now displayed as folders, allowing you to play the main feature or any of the extras from within the DLNA client interface.

5452f83e368b1_Screenshot_20141030224508.

Also, big thanks to FuFa for his work in helping improve our Panasonic device profile, and Happy2Play for lending some of his expertise.


Live TV Improvements

We've been working hard with Krustyreturns and SiliconDust, and ServerWMC users are in for a treat. If you have an HDHomerun that supports Dlna, we now use the SiliconDust api to stream directly from the tuner hardware, thereby bypassing Windows Media Center's wtv conversion process. You will notice faster video start times, increased reliability, decreased resource consumption, and improved video quality. Big thanks to krustyreturns for his efforts on this!


New Argus Live TV Plugin

We're happy to welcome Argus to the community, giving you yet another choice of Live TV providers. Check it out in the plugin catalog.


54526e9eb40fe_Untitled.png


Latest Item Settings

Some users have reported that they'd prefer not to have photos or music showing up in their latest items lists. This is now easily configured in your user preferences and will take effect within any Media Browser app that displays a global Latest Media section.

54526d588648f_Untitled.png


Web Client Photo Slideshow:

Click on any image within a photo album and you'll be treated to a visual slideshow. Best of all, it works great when you're mobile just by swiping your fingers left and right.

http://mediabrowser....ca_Untitled.png



Support for .STRM files:

These are a longtime favorite of Xbmc users. Now you can create stub files in your library containing a single media url, and the content will be displayed like any other video. Clients will then stream the content from the remote url.

Usage is simple. Create a normal text-file and rename the .txt extension to .strm then open it up with a text-editor (like Notepad in Microsoft Windows) and input the the direct url link of the stream.

For example:
http://host/path/stream

Other Improvements:
Upgraded to fanart v3 api
Support Imdb url's within NFO's that appear after the closing xml tag
Bugs Resolved:
Music videos not showing up on artist page
Artists with & in their name not displayed correctly
Upcoming TV not displaying certain content


Media Browser Server Beta 3.0.5393 Released
Started by admin , Yesterday, 10:33 PM

This is a small follow-up to the previous release to address the MovieDb image downloading issues that have crept up.


Media Browser Server Beta 3.0.5387 Released
Started by admin , Yesterday, 09:27 PM

This is a small maintenance release that adds a few new features and lays the groundwork for some bigger and better things to come.

New Cinema Mode Feature

Many of you are familiar with Ebr's Intros plugin, which allows you to play trailers and custom intros before movies. This is a great plugin but we've decided to implement a small subset of the features as a core server feature.

With cinema mode you can choose to play trailers before movies or episodes, as well as your own custom intro video files. It's very simple and easy to configure.

Note that playback of trailers within cinema mode requires installation of the Trailer channel plugin.

The following apps support cinema mode:
Media Browser Classic
Media Browser Theater
Roku
XBMB3C
Web Client (Desktop only)
Windows 8.1
Others soon to follow
After setting it up, it will be enabled for all users by default. But we realize not all of your users are going to want cinema mode. Users can disable it on an individual basis within their own user preferences:

Note for Intro Users:

Installing the intro plugin will completely replace the server's cinema mode feature, as it has the same feature set along with some additional advanced options.


Support for reading watched states from Nfo's

We now support reading your watched state from Nfo's. This makes Nfo metadata a great way to backup play state for a single user. You'll need to make sure to select which user to apply this to:

542ca1a5593b0_Untitled.png


Support VLC as an external player in the web client

This is available if you're running the web client on iOS or Android. It's very easy. Simpy enable it in your web client preferences.

Then when you play, you'll see an option to play with an external player:

Then select the external player you want:

Then launch the player with VLC. Please note this will come with some limitations, such as not being able to report progress to the server. But fear not, you can still keep track of your progress by manually indicating where you've stopped:


Media Browser 3.0.5362 Beta Released
Started by admin , Today, 03:38 PM

A new server release is available which features significant improvements to our transcoder in terms of performance, reliability and features. Without much further ado, here are the highlights:
Improved reliability and quality of video transcoding
A new transcoding throttling feature which will dramatically reduce cpu usage
Improved support for Advanced SubStation Alpha and SRT subtitles
Improved DLNA reliability
Added DLNA special folders
Added resume progress bars with DLNA images
Support webp image output for faster browsing
Support for additional photo metadata
Support for album disc sub-folders
Display mirror setting now remembered
Add an option to save metadata and images as hidden files
New Transcoding Features

Our transcoding has improved significantly. Not only is it faster and more reliable than ever, but it will also throttle itself when it gets far enough ahead of the player. Let's take a look at how that works. Simply start playing something and monitor the cpu usage from ffmpeg:

540b5a5f601d1_Untitled.png

As you can see it starts out pretty high, but depending on the content being played the transcoder may be able to move at a faster rate than you're actually watching. Let's monitor that from the server dashboard:

540b5ad144b56_Untitled.png

As you can see the transcoder position (in red), is a few minutes ahead of your current position. Media Browser Server is able to identify this and throttle the transcoder in order to reduce cpu usage:

540b5b29c851f_Untitled.png

The throttling is smart and will speed up and slow down as needed in order to maintain smooth playback. Now the reduced load on your server will allow more devices to stream simultaneously without putting too much pressure on your system.

But these are not the only transcoding improvements. Our handling of SRT and Advanced SubStation Alpha subtitles has improved and is now more efficient and reliable than ever.


Improved DLNA Support

This release also brings a number of DLNA enhancements. For starters, device compatibility has increased significantly thanks to pull requests submitted by 7Illusions.

In addition, we now display special folders throughout your library. Click into your TV, Movie, or Music sections and you'll see some nice categories like Resume, Next Up, Latest, Favorites, etc.

540b5dbe6999c_Untitled.png


In addition, you'll now see progress bars for titles that can be resumed, just like you're accustomed to with our other apps:

540b5df0dfc8d_Untitled.png


WebP Image Output Support

This is a technology feature for the developers. WebP is an open source image format designed by Google that achieves as much as a 34% reduction in file size from JPG/PNG at the same level of quality. This is going to allow faster browsing with apps that are capable of supporting them.

Look for WebP support soon in the following apps:
Web Client with Chrome and Chrome Android browsers
All Android apps
Chromecast
New Photo Metadata Support

With this release we are now capturing more robust photo metadata, with stats such as Aperture, Shutter Speed, Latitude, Longitude, and a long list of others. This is only the beginning of our photo revamp and you can expect robust filtering as well as slideshows and galleries in future updates.


Album Disc Sub-Folder Support

A long requested feature, we now support numbered disc sub-folders. Please see the music section of the knowledge base for details:


Media Browser Server 3.0.5336 Beta Released
Started by admin , 11 August 2014

With this new release we've added the ability to create playlists in the web client, but it also brings some other improvements and fixes. Here's the rundown:
Create playlists in the web client
Improved DLNA compatibility and image support
Increased server localization
There are also some new features for developers:
TTML subtitle output
VTT segmentation within m3u8 playlists
And a few important fixes:
Fixed open subtitle password issue (Windows users will need to reconfigure their passwords)
Fixed auto-organize not running on a schedule


Playlists

The highlight of this release is the ability to create playlists from the web client. In the coming weeks you'll see this feature rolled out to all of our clients. How do you create a playlist? Easy!

Right click any song, album, artist, genre, movie, tv series, season or episode:

53e95e46f0491_Untitled.png

Mobile users can also accomplish this via the tap-hold menus. Then you'll see a nifty slideout menu:

53e95e722c44e_Untitled.png

Once added, you'll have a new Playlists section on your home page. Click into any playlist to manage or play it:

53e95ec36ca8e_Untitled.png

But that's not the only way you can do it. Detail pages now have a more button containing this as well as the Edit function:

53e95effa187a_Untitled.png

And it can also be done in bulk using the selection tool:

53e95f3a7825d_Untitled.png

Expect the playlist feature to evolve significantly in upcoming release. Be sure to leave feedback and be a part of the process.


Media Browser Server 3.0.5231 Released
Posted by Luke , 27 July 2014 · 238 views

This is a small bug fix released designed to resolve a few issues that were introduced with the previous release. Among the fixes are:
Degraded performance when retrieving lists of music artists
OpenSubtitle password encryption errors in Linux
Windows service repeatedly reporting new version available
Windows service startup fixes (thanks to simpleimplement-e for the pull requests)
Web client backdrop setting not saving
Custom order for image extractor not saving
There are also a couple of enhancements:
Port 8945 no longer needed (all operating systems. this was previously a requirement with windows 7, linux and OSX).
Added album artist saving to music album nfo's.


New Server 3.0.5306 Beta Released
Posted by Luke , 11 July 2014 · 169 views

This is largely another infrastructure release. Here's the highlights:
Xbmc metadata support out of the box (plugin is now obsolete)
New video player layout in the web client
Improved seeking while transcoding for the web client & roku, coming soon to other apps
New mobile tap-hold menus
Improved log page
Subtitle download scheduled task
Latest item groupings
Season overview fetching from Tmdb
Episode image fetching from Tmdb
Chapter images now part of regular refresh
Xbmc Metadata Support

Xbmc metadata support is now included out of the box and requires no configuration. It just works. For new users coming from Xbmc, we can read your nfo's and get you up and running very quickly.


New Video Player Design

The new video player in the web client is much prettier and will make use of your logo images. The mobile version is also much simpler now and takes advantage of the browser's native controls.

Posted Image


New Mobile Tap Hold Menus

The new mobile tap hold menus will give you quick access to all of your favorite functions.

Posted Image


Better Seeking While Transcoding

You will notice this in the mobile web client, and in the Roku beta. Other clients will soon update to take advantage of this.


New Log Page

If you need to post a log for debugging purposes, now you can access any of your log files from within the web client, under Help -> Logs.


New List View

Many users prefer a plain list view while navigating, and we've listened. It's available on several screens.
Posted Image



Subtitle Download Scheduled Task

Subtitles are normally downloaded when new videos or added or refreshed manually. But now the scheduled task can help fill in the gaps as well.


Latest Item Groupings

The web client will now group latest items together by series or album.

Posted Image


Season Overview Fetching from Tmdb

Posted Image


Episode Images from Tmdb

Tvdb remains the default tv image fetcher, but Tmdb has been added as an option due to the wonderful quality of their episode images (sometimes 1080p and beyond).

Posted Image


Chapter Images

These are now generated when new content is added, in addition to the scheduled task. We want to remove the need to run scheduled tasks manually and leave them to what they're supposed to be - scheduled tasks.


Security Overhaul

Api security has been revamped, and going forward, applications will require either your password or your permission via an api key in order to communicate with Media Browser. We are in discussion with both Sickbeard and Nzbdrone to receive notifications from them when new content is added.

You'll be able to generate api keys for both of these applications which you will then enter into their configuration. If they don't have a key, they will not have access to your Media Browser Server. You can be sure we're doing everything we can to secure your data. Note: existing Media Browser apps will be given a grace period to migrate to the new authentication system.


Media Browser Server 3.0.5287 Beta Released
Posted by Luke , 23 June 2014 · 72 views

The Infrastructure Release

That's probably the best way to describe this as it brings a lot of improvements to existing features. Let's jump right into the highlights:
New text subtitle delivery system
New metadata refresh options
DLNA Improvements
New Channels
New Channel Improvements
Unified web interface
New Text Subtitle Delivery System

The server now has the ability to deliver text subtitles directly to the client, thereby eliminating the need to "burn them in" on the fly. What does this mean? It means that the server will no longer be forced to transcode on account of subtitles (though it may still for other reasons). It also means that clients have the ability to customize the appearance of the text. Notice in the screen below, this is how the Chrome browser chooses to render them, but in the future, we can offer customization around this.

Ask the developer of your favorite client to support this new delivery system. It is currently used by the web client, and is coming soon to Roku.

New Metadata Refresh Options

When you refresh metadata using the web interface, you now have the ability to replace all images we well. The "Identify" feature will do this automatically.

DLNA Improvements
User audio language preferences now respected
User subtitle language preferences now respected
Seek is supported via remote control
Changing audio/subtitle tracks on fly is now supported via remote control
Numerous DLNA server improvements - more devices should be supported now
Playing a music album or folder should now function correctly
New Channels

Thanks to Snazy2000's continued efforts, the list of available channels is growing rapidly.

New Channel Improvements

Now you're able to see your latest channel items just like any other content.

Some channels also support downloading content ahead of time for smoother viewing:

Unified Web Interface

The web interface now has the same look wherever you are and should be easier to navigate and learn, no matter how you use it.

Also there is a new "Media Folders" configuration option for the web client. While the interface is designed around views that you customize, we understand many will prefer plain folder navigation.

We've also listened to your feedback and brought back the Suggested section in the tv area. Now you can view suggestions on both the home page, and within the tv section.


Media Browser Server 3.0.5263 Beta Released
Started by admin , May 30 2014 08:47 PM

This has been a longer than usual development cycle and as a result we've got some great things to introduce. Let's get right to the release highlights:
New Internet Channels Infrastructure
Improved DLNA Support
Improved Server Localization
Live TV H264 Optimizations
Subtitle downloading via OpenSubtitles.org
Newly designed web client home page
Design and customize your web client
Expanded user audio/subtitle language preferences
Improved remote control in the web client
New Internet Channels

We're happy to announce new infrastructure we've built to allow for browsing of internet content from your favorite Media Browser apps. Right off the bat we're releasing four channels, but look for more soon. The channels are available as plugins in the plugin catalog you've come to enjoy.

Big thanks to Snazy2000 and TimHobbs for their contributions to channel development. We are looking for new contributors who may have interest in helping us add more channels.

Improved DLNA Support

Thanks to community efforts we've added support for some additional devices, as well as improved our default profiles to help increase compatibility.

Live TV H264 Optimizations (ServerWMC Only)

For those of you who have H264 tv programs, you'll soon see improved server cpu utilization during playback, depending on the device being used.

Subtitle downloading from OpenSubtitles.org

In the metadata area you'll notice new settings related to subtitle downloading. With a supplied OpenSubtitles account, you can now enjoy automated subtitle downloading as items are scanned into the library.

There's even a management page in the metadata editor that allows you to see what subtitles you have, download new ones, delete, and more.

Newly designed web client home page

It's no longer just a portal but is now much smarter - smarter about putting the content you want to consume right in front of you.

But if there's something about it you don't like, now you have the ability to personalize it to your own tastes.

Expanded user language settings

Each user now has additional options they can utilize to customize their audio and subtitle language preferences. You'll also see greater consistency in getting these settings applied across your devices.

Expanded remote controls

Remote controls in the web client now include a number of exciting new features.

Select your audio stream:

Select your subtitles:

Even scroll through the scene selection menu with the swipe of a finger:
