Emby is a personal media server, which has clients for many platforms. It is used to organize personal home media, as well as play back on other devices. There are a large amount of channels that are supported by the community, and can even be used with PVR and Tuner cards to provide TV streaming remotely.
Install the package.
Access Emby through the browser by navigating to http://localhost:8096/
Optionally you might want to give emby write permissions and enable media deletion or local metadata saving. To do that you can extend the systemd service:
[Service] SupplementaryGroups=share ReadWritePaths=/mnt/share
This will add the
emby user to the
share group, and enable write permission to the
/mnt/share directory through systemd. Note that you still need to make sure the
share group has write permissions to the actual directory.
