Theme Songs

Any folder (movie, series, season, game, etc) can have theme songs. Emby apps will play the songs in the background while browsing through the content.

There are two supported conventions, theme.ext, or the 'theme-music' sub-folder, where ext is any valid audio extension.

/Movies
   /Home Alone (1990)
      Home Alone (1990).mp4
      theme.mp3

or

/Movies
   /Home Alone (1990)
      Home Alone (1990).mp4
      /theme-music
          song1.mp3
          song2.wma
          song3.flac

Theme Videos

Any folder (movie, series, season, game, etc) can have theme videos using a 'backdrops' sub-folder. Some Emby apps will play the videos in the background while browsing through the content.

      Home Alone (1990).mp4
      /backdrops
          video1.mkv
