Migration from Emby


Just came to say that it might be worthwhile to add to the documentation that one should symlink the old emby location to the new jellyfin. I had an issue with scanning library until then:

ln -s /var/lib/jellyfin /var/lib/emby

solved all issues and might prevent others as well.


This is something we’ve already explored, we even had this symlink being done in debian package installation.

It works in a sense, but we had lots of reports of issues after such migration, so we decided to call this “unsupported” unless someone decides to go and create full migration script.
