    Duplicate artist

    Dear Support, I have a minor but very annoying duplicate in my music for artist and album artist. This duplicate only exists within Emby and in all applications like server web, ipad, and emby for windows. The duplicate doesn't exist in plex, itunes or indeed Emby's metadata manager. The content of the two a-ha's below is the same. I can play all albums in each. The only difference is the path on one is appdata and not the media itself. The image is also different as you can see. I have tried to delete the appdata entry but it re-appears. No amount of sync or clean has worked. I have also tried to rename the A-Ha entry as I think this is the one that is wrong. All other items in my library are pointing to the media and not appdata. Thank you, Russ.
  2. Gday Team Emby! I have an issue with Emby not displaying contributing artists within' the album view: Under an artist, the contributing artists are displayed correctly with all artists involved within' the track, but within' the album view, there's no mention of contributing artists. Sidenote: Same result in playback. Just the album artist showing - and even when there's multiple album artists, only one is showing. ARTIST VIEW: ALBUM VIEW: PLAYBACK VIEW: //Kenifyable
  3. Sorry i know this has been answered before. I searched the forums and found users with the same problem, but i dont know if i should bring back an old post or make a new one. Same problem: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/43502-emby-generating-artistnfo-on-emby-servermetadataartists-instead-of-artist-folder-and-not-fetching-artist-bio/ Artists/albuns added some time ago are good, every .nfo is in the correct folder and everything is ok for these in the metadata manager and music catalog. For recent added artists emby generates an artist.nfo under \Emby-Server\metadata\artists and the genre tag is missing when i check in the metadata manager. This is anoying specially when browsing a genre, these newly added artist wont show up. The option 'Save artwork and metadata into media folders' is ticked. When i move the .nfo manually to the artist folder seems to work, the artists pop under the genre in the music catalog. Im using version Thanks in advance
  4. Hello, I like the search function of Emby very much. However, if I search for i.e. "David Bowie", I find the person twice It's not a big deal, but when I clik on "Artist", I find some information (aprox 105 songs in my case), and if I click on "Person", I find other information.(1 movie and aprox 50 songs). What is the difference? Can I merge both information lists? It would be nice to have all the songs displayed in one list... kind regards, Bart

    Artist vs Album Artist

    Is there a way to get the Android TV app to use the ARTIST tag for browsing instead of the ALBUM ARTIST tag? This is a feature that works remarkably well on the web app, and on the Android phone/tablet apps. For some reason however, I am not able to get the Android TV app to allow browsing by the artist tag. I understand that for many casual listeners out there this may seem like a trivial matter, but for music buffs (or in my case....music junkies), the difference between using an artist tag vs album artist tag can be pretty huge; especially, if you listen to genres of music where collaborations are a way of life. Please forgive me if this matter has already been brought up elsewhere (I tried a search but couldn't find it). Right now I have a "test" server that I'm using to work out the kinks and learn the system before setting up the final deal. Thanks in advance if there's someone out there that can point in the right direction!

    The Three Gardiners

    Hi, On web interface, I currently have three Gardiners, just as the picture shows: On details page, first and second one shows "Classical" as genre, third lists as "Vocal". Sure, I have vocal and classical albuns with SJEG. So, how should I proceed to clean up this mess? Also, it would be a lot, very much useful indeed (and should I open a topic?), to be able to back to results page after checking details on one of the results.
  7. I have many cases where I have musical artist who are also actors in movies. Right now there are two entries for these people which are not linked (e.g. going to the people entry does not show music / going to the artist entry does not show movies). It would be nice to have these two views of the same person merged. Some examples which I am aware of where this occurs: Christina Aguilera Common Justin Timberlake Prince T.I. will.i.am
  8. 3.0.5526.29593 Similar to http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/8745-artist-listed-twice-in-album-artist-folder/?hl=duplicate In a similar way as to how it is impossible to identify incorrect similar artist ID3 tags from within MBS.... due to MBS Person and Artist views showing the Artist/Person names as matched rather than as is.... and the content against the Matched Person/Artist rather than Person/Artist as is... People Views also exhibit this problematic symptom..eg abby eliott The two source entities which created these two objects are 'Abby Elliot' and 'Abby Elliott'... in this case the 2nd 'incorrect' person object 'Abby Elliot' came from a gueststars tag on a series.xml.... Unfortunately it is impossible to use MBS to find the offending tag/source object and correct... because 1. The person/artist object is shown as matched rather than as is...so searching for the incorrect value outside MBS is obfuscated..(although looking at the IBN entry/path can help) 2. clicking on both person objects in UI shows content for the same matched person on the fetcher...NOT...the content which precipitated the object. Clicking one of the objects..the object for 'Abby Elliott' should show 3 episodes of HIMYM where the actor is defined...and it does... Clicking on the other object ..the object for 'Abby Elliot' (also shown as 'Abby Elliott') should show 1 Series of HIMYM where the actor is defined. but it doesnt... its shows the previous / same as above... Another example..i have 3 "Weird Al" Yankovic..s clicking on each one yields the following unique URLS http://localhost:8096/web/itembynamedetails.html?id=12980317ee5e2d0a0858a58977ff5620&context=tv&topParentId=f0a9d2c6947d6c6defaa52c7af70e0b8 http://localhost:8096/web/itembynamedetails.html?id=f6a10a3fe8863fc089849e76375dbd52&context=tv&topParentId=f0a9d2c6947d6c6defaa52c7af70e0b8 http://localhost:8096/web/itembynamedetails.html?id=f3ac96f426691445d1ffd6c74a616c11&context=tv&topParentId=f0a9d2c6947d6c6defaa52c7af70e0b8 but they all show the same content...the same movie 'the naked gun'.. The feature request is.... to name the Artist/Person objects in their respective views, as is not as matched... to not hide the content from the user which precipitated the object in the view..eg (the tags on) the tracks which precipitated the artist or e.g. the TVDB actor metadata which precipitated the person. or better yet...in this example There should be two person objects, one Abby Elliot - Identified and Matched (because it does) - showing content for 'Abby Elliott' and the other Abby Elliot - Not identified or Matched (because it doesn't) - Show content for 'Abby Elliot' Then when the duplicate/incorrect entry is identified...it would be obvious why..and the correction simple... thanks for considering..
  9. Server Version 3.0.5424.1 OS Windows 7 64bit The announcement "Media Browser Server 3.0.5416 Beta Released" Under "Bugs Resolved:" it stated: "Music videos not showing up on artist page" This does not appear to have been resolved. Michael Jackson example:
  10. client 2.0.87 Gal S4 when scrolling down artists, if i hit a letter, it is registered/shows on screen, but i do not jump to the letter..i always jump to the same place towards beginning of sort order regardless of which letter i choose. anyone else seeing this? redshirt would you consider an option to show album artists rather than artists in the music view. personally its how i seek music 99% of the time.easier to find 1 in 500 rather than 1 in 7000. thanks for considering..
  11. Hope someone can help here. I am using Musicbrainz picard to tag my music collection, but it doesn't appear to be adding the artists id or overview to the artists text file. Can someone tell me how to set this up in Musicbrainz Picard? Many thanks for your help
  12. Version 3.0.5404.29588 following on from http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/6333-artist-name-is-initials-issue/?p=88447 MB3 can not handle artists with ID3 tgs ending in full stop. eg 't.A.T.u.' 2014-10-19 15:20:01.2458 Info - ImageProcessor: Failed to read image header for E:\MediaBrowser\IBN\artists\t.A.T.u\folder.jpg. Doing it the slow way. 2014-10-19 15:20:01.2458 Error - App: Error getting image information for E:\MediaBrowser\IBN\artists\t.A.T.u\folder.jpg Could not find file 'E:\MediaBrowser\IBN\artists\t.A.T.u\folder.jpg'. System.IO.FileNotFoundException at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath) at System.IO.FileInfo.get_Length() at MediaBrowser.Api.Images.ImageService.GetImageInfo(IHasImages item, ItemImageInfo info, Nullable`1 imageIndex) Steps to reproduce. 1. Create W:\Music\t.A.T.u\[insert some album here] (no full stop at end because windows file system doesn't support) MB3 successfully identifies, album/artist and downloads metadata into media collection. 2. Go to metadata manager and change the primary image for the artist. Error as above.no folder.jpg in collection. It is odd that on first fetch MB3 handles the artist but cant handle manually fetching artwork from metadata manager.
  13. Server: Version 3.0.5211.41935 OK, I'm getting confused and frustrated. I added an artist folder with an album. Search provides the following results for the new artist. The Music page displays the Artist as follows: When clicking on the O'Jays the following page is displayed: Then clicking on edit presents the following page: Then clicking on the first album folder presents the following page (note: no albums listed): This appears to be the structure of the folder item identified in the search. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ By clicking the "Artist" item identified in the search I get what I expect to see, first: bottom half of page: Clicking on edit presents the following page: When click on the first Album the following page presents: Conclusion: Everything would present as expected if the "folder" entry point did not appear on the "Music" page (or anywhere) and the "Artist" entry point did appear on the "Music" page. I have noticed that the "Path:" on the "Edit" pages are different. I have refreshed the music folder...no joy. I have restarted the server...no joy. I have deleted and readded the artist folder...no joy. What am I doing wrong?
  14. Currently having an issue that I can't seem to figure out. I have an artist in my music folder with the structure: \Music Folder \Artist \Album 1 Song 1 etc \Album 2 \song 1 \etc In the metadata editor on the dashboard the name field for the artist is the name of one of the albums (can change between either if you clear the field and refresh), adding the artist ids in the relevant fields and refreshing does not correct this. Also there is no way to add album or artist ids to an album if you click on its name but you can if you click on a single track ? It seems the artist is being treated as an album as mb has dropped an album.xml in there but oddly when i had it refresh an album it dropped a folder.xml in there. I'm sure this is something I've done wrong but would appreciate a bit of help here. Server Version: 3.0.5238.39498 Client Version: Theater 3.0.5233.39319 Tracks are in FLAC format

    Artist name is initials issue

    Server Version 3.0.5211.41935 Issue with artist/people who go by initials...for example "T.I." or "B.G." There is already a naming issue regading directory naming...(i.e., directory name cannot end with a period; therefore, I have just dropped the last period, so "T.I." becomes directory name "T.I")...do you have better solution? I have recently noticed that these initialed names are being displayed (in MB and MBC) as the first initial only so..."T.I." ( directory name "T.I") becomes artist name "T" in MB and MBC. Editing and Saving the "Name" field for the Artist (in MB) doesn't seem to work (i.e., although edited and saved...the value does not change!?) NOTE: There is no artist.xml in the root directories for these "initialed artists". Refreshing (tried refreshing "Artist" and "Music") and saving changes does not create the requisite .xml. (anyway...can't send you respective artist.xml....can't create one!...is this helpful in isolating what the issue might be?)
  16. Server, version 3.0.5083.27698 running on a Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1 machine. I have been testing out Mediabrowser 3 with a selection of different music tracks. There are a few problems I have come across relating to how Album Artists/Artists are handled. Both the Album Artist and Artist tags for tracks by "Weird Al" Yankovic are written as "Weird Al" Yankovic for each track. The artist folder that contains the album folders and metadata is written as 'Weird Al' Yankovic since " cannot be used in file and folder names in Windows. Both the Album Artist and Artist tags for tracks by AC/DC are written as AC/DC for each track. The artist folder that contains the album folders and metadata is written as AC-DC since / cannot be used in file and folder names in Windows. In the Album Artists view: 'Weird Al' Yankovic - The artist image is not shown and neither are the numbers of albums or songs. AC-DC - The numbers of albums and songs are not shown, but the artist image is. This indicates to me that the folder name is being used instead of the information in the Album Artist tags which is not ideal in situations where different characters are used like these. In the Artists View: AC - shows one extra album and one extra song AC/DC - does not include extra album or extra song DC - shows one extra album and one extra song (the extra album and song it refers to is a track from the Last Action Hero soundtrack which has Various Artists written in the Album Artist tag) This indicates to me that the / in the Album Artist/Artist tags are confusing things somehow as entries called AC and DC are being created even though they do not exist at all in the music collection. They still point to the AC/DC albums, with the addition of the Last Action Hero track, but in the case of the AC entry, it has filled in a artist thumbnail image and description. Additionally, an entry for Various Artists shows up in the Artists view even though it is only used in the Album Artist tags of tracks for certain albums. There are 2 tracks from the Batman Forever soundtrack album in my music collection for testing. Browsing to Various Artists from the Artists view shows two versions of the album. Each one goes to one of the tracks which are both by different artists. The album is also duplicated like this in the Albums view. The file and folder naming convention I use is: D:\Music\Album Artist\Album\Disc 1/2/etc (if more than one disc)\Track Title.mp3 All tracks are tagged with Title, Artist, Album, Genre, Year, Track Number, Album Artist and Disc Number (if more than one disc).

    double artist.xml

    Is there a reason that the server creates a artist.xml here \\SERVER\ImagesByName\artists\Depeche Mode\ and here \\SERVER\Musik\Depeche Mode\
