Expand Emby’s capabilities
We’ve seen how Emby uses plug-ins to support a range of TV tuners, but there are plugins that expand other aspects of the server, too. There’s the Auto-Organise plugin that’s used to automatically filter media into the correct folders, but if you select Plugins under Extras in the Manage Server dashboard and switch to the Catalogue tab you’ll find other plugins too.
Many of these are used to help you organise your library – Auto Box Sets simplifies the task of creating film collections, while Gamebrowser enables you to link in your game library to Emby and even launch games using supported front-ends. IPTV makes it possible to import internet-hosted videos into your library
Look out for Premium plugins, which aren’t free (PlayOn for example), plus plugins marked as Supporter, which require an EmbyPremiere subscription. Notable examples here include Trailers (linked to the movies in your library) and Server Configuration Backup, a handy tool for backing up and migrating server settings.
Once plugins have been installed, switch back to the Plugins tab to access them – click the vertical ellipsis and choose Settings to configure one, using the tabs at the top to do so.
