Is Docker the only way to install emby on OMV

  • I am having a lot of issues with emby inside of docker. the guide for live tv will disappear and never come back. any ideas on another way to install emby. and i have watched tecno dads videos yesterday.

  • i don't get why this is happening either. i am totally new to omv and like it i have all my media there and works great for that. And i have a lifetime of emby and want it on there. would my processor and ram be to slow for it?

  • bad config.


    emby need to show someting in ports.


    please post moer info about how you configure emby en your dockers to help you.

  • My Emby Docker install serves Kodi on a Pi mainly, to iPads I use VLC so everything is direct play, but in respect of your above image you need to add --cleanup to the Command option in Watchtower that would remove the other Emby image.
    As to your Live TV you might be better served asking on the Emby forum, I don't use it so can't offer any advice.

    It does to me, you have to stop then remove it, then re run it, haven't found any other way to add that option.


    Or you create a scheduled job to run daily and add this as the command to run docker images -q --filter "dangling=true" | xargs -n1 -r docker rmi this does the same as --cleanup
