H96 Max TV Box​ 


Here are the necessary hardware and applications for this tutorial:

An H96 Max TV Box (smartphone or Android box)

Additional tip: Make sure you have enough space on your H96 Max TV Box to store multiple videos and photos.

Steps for transfer your H96 Max TV Box into the multimedia server:

Step 1: Go to Emby's website and create a free account.

Step 2: From your H96 Max TV Box, download the APK from the Emby Server application and install it. Remember to allow the installation of applications from unknown sources.

Step 3: Make sure you are connected to the Internet and then launch the application. At the first startup, Emby server will ask you to grant it access to the files stored on the device. Allow the application.

Step 4: Emby Server will provide you with a URL address. The latter provides access to the server configuration wizard. Go to this address or click on Open in browser. Click on Next.

Step 5: Create a username and password. You also have the option to associate this server with an email address, but this option is optional. Click on Next.

Step 6: A new page will open, allowing you to add folders and files to your server. Click on Add Media library.

Step 7: Choose the type of content to add (movies, music, clips, books, etc.) and a name for the folder.

Step 8: Click on the + button next to Folders to add a folder. Once you have chosen your folder, click on the OK button.

Step 9: Then, specify library settings such as language settings for subtitles, images and movie information. Once all these parameters have been adjusted, click on OK. Repeat steps 6,7,8 and 9 as many times as you add folders. Click on Next.

Step 10: Select your preferred language and country again.  Click on Next.

Step 11: Enable remote access by checking both boxes on the next window and then clicking the Next button. These two options will allow you to access your server even if you are not connected to the same network.

Step 12: Check the box to confirm that you accept the terms of service and click Next again.

Step 13: Finally, click on the Finish button. Your media server is finally created, but how do you access the files stored on it?

Step 14: To do so, go directly to the Emby website and identify yourself.  You can also access all the media stored on your server using the Emby application directly from another H96 Max TV Box or compatible TV.
