Initial Setup

Emby Is a proprietary media server written in C# that organizes, plays, and streams audio and video to a variety of devices. Prior to Emby's 3.5.3 release (and subsequently Emby 3.6, which has since been closed-source), Emby's source code was initially an open-source project, with subsequent releases being released to their website are marked as proprietary. Jellyfin is the fork of Emby prior to re-license.

Troubleshooting Information

Why does Emby connect not work? Which port should I use in my Emby Client?

Due to our infrastructure, Emby Connect doesn't work because it's looking for Emby instances on their default port (8096). You may have to just manually connect under manually connect server or a similar option. Listed below are the client connection details that you will enter.
