Strm Files

Carlo Ayars edited this page Jan 27, 2019 · 1 revision

Various internet video and audio streams can be played back in Emby as if they were locally stored on your media center by using STRM files. As long as the format and streaming-method (network-protocol) is supported by Emby, the stream can be used. These are basic text files named to look like .strm and contain a URL to the internet stream

Usage

Create a normal text file and rename the .txt extension to .strm. Then open it up with a text-editor (like Notepad in Microsoft Windows) and input the the direct URL-link of the stream.

This should look like:

http://host/path/stream

or

mms://host/path/stream

or

rtsp://host/path/stream

Examples

An strm file as a movie:

\Movies
   \300 (2006)
      300 (2006).strm

Strm files can be used for any kind of video, such as movies, episodes, music videos, home videos, etc.

The naming convention of the .strm file name should follow the convention used for the associated content type (movies, episodes, etc).
