Set up an Emby server in Windows
Download and run Emby. The configuration wizard will open in your web browser. Make sure English (United Kingdom) is selected as the preferred display language, then click Next. Enter your name and the details of your Emby account, if you have one. You can now set up your libraries. Click the Add Media Library tile. 1
Use the drop-down menu in the window that opens to select a ‘Content type’ – Movies, Music, TV, Books, Games, Home Videos & Photos, Music Videos, Photos or Unset (Mixed Content). 1 You can also change the default display name. 2 Click Add 3 to locate a folder containing your media. Allow Emby to download artwork. 4
Choose where you want Emby to save the artwork, and whether to enable chapter-image extraction (this takes time and uses a lot of space). Click OK, then either add some more media libraries 1 or click Next. 2 Set the Metadata language to English (UK) and agree to the terms of service. When you’ve done all that, click Finish.
