Emby is a great media origizaion and delivery solution. But I found need to tweak for make ntfs extermal drive set as a path in Linux. Othrwise, the access problem will show. Under Plex should be work as same.

Step

  • Add autostart command, sudo systemctl enable emby-server
  • Find UUID of ntfs drive, sudo blkid
  • Add line in fstab, sudo nano /etc/fstab, with UUID=YOUR_UUID /mnt/YOUR_MOUNT ntfs-3g nofail,rw,user,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=022,fmask=133,permissions,noatime,windows_names 0 0
  • If not work, change permisson for accessing,
