Value of Emby over Native?

Post by smitopher » 25 Dec 2017, 20:22

I only have 1 device.

I have messed around with Emby before. I gave it a not very serious try with MrMC. Did not bother when it was not "perfect" with the first initial shot.

I kind of like the idea of using Emby.

What are the devs thoughts? Does Emby add value to a stock simple setup?

I'm looking at the value in my rather simple setup.

For Live TV and PVR, I'm happy with the MythTV support. I wonder about added value for the Move/TV library.

It's easier to manage your library with Emby or Plex since you can change artwork/titles on a mobile or other computer with a webpage instead of with a remote on MrMC.

Sorry for the newbie question...

I would like to use my Emby server for client MrMC...in order to use Emby db for MrMC...As MrMC client allows usage of comm skip capabilities. MrMC client comm skip works perfectly with SMB, however I cannot figure out how to add the Emby Server as a video source for MrMC. Otherwise, I have to maintain MrMC on multiple devices when using SMB.

FWIW, I added Emby Client on Emby>Settings>Services.

My goal is to utilize Emby centralized db with the functionality of playing on MrMC (with the included comm skip capabilities).

When connected via Emby (or Plex) they don't know that there's an EDL file in the folder because it's not something those backends support. Emby has said it's something they plan to support in the future, but didn't give a timeline.

The only way for EDL support in MrMC is using MySQL or native MrMC DB.

Thanks @timstephens24...you confirmed my worst fears (but at least I now know not to go down that rabbithole)...Off to look at MySQL.

Was able to setup sql on the Qnap...but still lost as to how to proceed.

Used sql queries on an AS400...25 years ago, hence familiar with syntax. No clue as to setting up the applicable database with SQL Buddy or PHPMyAdmin on Qnap (still more to investigate).

Any MySQL for Dummies sources? May have to resort to contacting @Luke at Emby to add EDL support...however based on last year progress in Emby that may take an inordinate amount of waiting time.

@davilla or @amet:

Is there any hope of MrMC being able to utilize the EDL files when using the Emby Server as a source for video files?

You should be able to connect to it by just running 'mysql -u root -p' then run the following commands:

Code: Select all

CREATE USER 'mrmc' IDENTIFIED BY 'mrmc';
GRANT ALL ON *.* TO 'mrmc';
flush privileges;

He said it was planned for the future on Sep 28th in a post over at the Emby forums (I think).

hi,

not really up to us, if emby recognizes and serves the file then we can use it.. that's not the case now.
