embyupdate is a plugin that lets you automatically update Emby‘s library whenever you change your beets library.
embyupdate plugin, enable it in your configuration (see Using Plugins). Then, you’ll probably want to configure the specifics of your Emby server. You can do that using an
emby: section in your
config.yaml, which looks like this:
emby: host: localhost port: 8096 username: user password: password
To use the
embyupdate plugin you need to install the requests library with:
pip install requests
With that all in place, you’ll see beets send the “update” command to your Emby server every time you change your beets library.
The available options under the
emby: section are:
- host: The Emby server name.
- port: The Emby server port. Default: 8096
- username: A username of a Emby user that is allowed to refresh the library.
- password: That user’s password.
