  1. Is there a way to dump all my library metadata into Media Browser XML files before I upgrade to 3.0.5490.2 or newer? With the removal of the mixed movies & TV folder type, I don't want to lose all my data for my anime collection and be forced to rebuild from scratch as I did when testing that "feature" the last time. I know there's nothing inside MB itself for that, but if someone's put together scripts or a small program that will pull everything out of the DB files and create/update the appropriate XML files in my folders, that'd be great to have.
  2. Apologies if this has been covered before, a search did not reveal anything. Is there a way to set the Order in which Libraries are listed? The default order appears to be Alphabetical. To show what I am after, I have 3 movie Libraries - Kids, Family; and for lack of a better term Mature - this is also the order I would like them shown. Currently they are shown in this order - Family, Kids, Mature - and yes I could rename Kids to Children but the full title then become too long to display on a single line in WMC...Childrens Movies [GA]...and the kids say thats confusing. Any help wold be appreciated.
  3. Hi y'all. I've tried some searching / reading / googling (didn't think that was a word until now). I just haven't really be able to find what I was looking for. I've added movies to the Movie Library and they show up just fine. Now I've been adding some work out videos for my wife and they are junking up the Movie Library. I'm trying to keep the workout videos in their own little part of our media server. Is there something that I am over looking to make this happen?
  4. Hi everyone, Hopefully this will be a quick question someone can answer. A similar issue was raised on this thread, but it does not seem to have been resolved: http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/8375-wav-music-invisible/ I have a number of dts encoded audio files (unlike the linked thread, with dts extension). As most of you know, there is no official way of adding an ID3 tag to a dts audio file. Nevertheless, I decided to trying adding an album to the library to see what happens. Partial success! The dts audio files can be accessed and played, but only via the Suggested and Songs menus in the Music view. It does not appear in any of the other menus: Albums, Album Artists, Artists, Genres, Music Videos (kind of obvious I know). Considering that I store the dts audio files in a folder structure as recommended by the wiki, is it possible to use the folder structure as a backup when an ID3 tag doesn't exist? In this case, perhaps Artist and Album Artist can be treated as the same tag? I hope this can be a quick and easy patch. I am using Windows 8.1 x86, Media Browser v3.0.5464.40000, and have tested with IE 11 and Palemoon 24.7.2.
  5. The reason for this request is because i have many users that connect to my mediabrowser from outside. When you create a new account for a user you can set there library access before they access the request. Now what i have noticed is that this is a hit and miss. I invited a guess, gave them only TV and movie access but once the account was created, they had access to all the content of the library. I only figured this out because the user let me know. Now maybe this is a bug or maybe i did something wrong but now i need to go through each user to make sure they dont have access to content they shouldnt. There is also the fact that when you add a new library item (like i added photo to my MB) every user gets access to it and then you have to go and remove it for each user. I have almost 15 account and having to modify each one, one by one is time consuming. So i propose that under Library there is a new tab that shows who access to what and allow you to modify access by means of checkbox next to there name. This would give a quick and clear view of who access which resource. This could also apply to the Channels, LiveTv ...Basically every section in the user property. It could even be a redesign of the user section For example: Tv Shows: User 1 X User 2 X User 3 ... Music: User 1 X User 2 User 3 X
  6. What would be the easiest way to make sure that all the metadata for my media libraries are all exported to appropriate XML files before the "unset" library type replaces mixed in stable? Given the experience I had when "unset" was introduced and blew away most of the metadata for my anime library, I'd like to make sure that the XML files are there and properly filled out before moving off of my current server version.
  7. I would like to have the option to see and play the Music Library on Android as it is stored on the server: by Folders. Could this be enabled?

  11. Hi All, Since the update on 30th November, we are having major issues with the library, for example, in a folder called history, we have several folders, some of the folders had audio pods in and now they dont show up, but the files are there when manually viewing in windows explorer, also some videos when placed into folders makes the folder think its a file, the previous version before this update never did this and worked perfectly, is there a fix or is there a way to revert back to the previous version of Media Browser as this is causing issues and many hours of headaches, being this is a school. Many thanks Nathaniel

    Exclude movie or tv show ?

    I'm not sure if this is possible yet but if yes I can't figured out the easiest way to do it. I have a lot of tv show in my library for the whole family. I also share the library with some friends I get request sometime from sister/brother or friends to add a show they would like to watch but I don't really want to see it in my library. I have no interest in those show and I'm trying to avoid having to create a new folder (library) for just those shows and remove access to myself to this library. The way my setup is done is that all my download from SONARR (nzbdrone) is automatically extracted to my TV folder which after MB take care of the METADATA etc.. I'm trying to find if there's a way to remove the show from MY list without having to click WATCHED/PLAYED icon. If I do that, trakTV will add the show to my traktv.tv list. A neat feature would be to have an icon for "NOT INTERESTED" on the TV show poster. I have the same problem for movie request that I have no interest watching and I like using the filter NOT WATCHED and I have all those movies listed. Thank you for any suggestion and if the only choice is to create another library and movie those tv show and movie in this folder well.. at least I asked
  13. Hi all. I’ve moved Movies & TV Shows over to Media Browser and we are loving the experiance. I’m currently testing a couple of Albums / Artists as well. I’d like to move the rest of my media over but I’m stuck as to how to organise them. I’ve got Stand-up Comedy, Cooking TV Shows, Documentaries, Exercise Videos, so I can’t just put them under the Home Videos folder type. Basically how would I / how do you organise Stand-up Comedy? My layout on my hard drive is \Videos\Stand-up Comedy\Billy Connolly\(2005) - Billy Connolly - Live In New York\(2005) - Billy Connolly - Live In New York.avi I’ve no problem renaming them the same as IMDB or whichever. Also What would the folder type be? I don’t want them mixed in with my Movies or TV Shows... Is there any way to add a “Custom Folder Type” and then call it Stand-up Comedy and them select the scrapers or manually get images / data for them? Are there plans to add more Folder Types in the future? Regards, Lee
  14. I have followed the suggestions given here, also started with adding one folder only but somehow it seems to be stuck at 56% in the logs I do see some errors but not sure if they relate to the error, put the log here http://paste.ubuntu.com/9147494/ anyone any clues? mb3 Version 3.0.5395.0 installed on ubuntu precise my first post pertaining this topic can be found here: http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/13410-xbmc-mysql-library-and-mb3xbmb3c-library-sharing/
  15. I'm enjoying Media Browser on my Roku 3, but am experiencing one considerable annoyance. When browsing through my media library, all I can see to identify media is a picture. It would be much easier if there were textual information (artist or album in the music folder, for example) were displayed. I'm hoping there's just a simple fix, but if there is I am missing it. As it is if I don't recognize the picture I have to click on it just to figure out what it is.
  16. i have 2 drives with tv shows (mom, dad). there are some shows that both of us watch. is there any way to add individual series to a library? thanks.
  17. Hello. I am trying to access my library on my Kindle Fire. I want to access the http://localhost:......web/index.html page with all the visual elements. I attempted to access the URL on my Kindle & I received an error message stating: I wasn't sure if I was missing something. All help is appreciated. Thanks.
  18. Hello, I just downloaded MediaBrowser to give it a try. I had been using Universal Media Server for a while, and switched over to XMBX and Plex Server. From what I've seen and read I think I would like MediaBrowser as I have multiple PS3 systems and Samsung Smart TVs around my house. I am trying to run this on a Windows 8.1 system, which the two main collections of media are on two separate HDDs and drives (D and E). Every movie and TV show is in its own folder, D: for Movies, E: for TV Shows. D:\Super Troopers\Super Troopers.mkv D:\Tron Legacy\Tron Legacy.mp4 etc. E:\Entourage\Entourage - Season 1\Entourage (S01E01) Pilot.mkv E:\True Blood\True Blood - Season 3\True Blood (S03E02) Death.mkv etc. After installing MediaBrowser, the first thing that happened is it popped up a dialog box that stated: "There was an issue launching your web browser. Please check your default browser settings." My default browser is Chrome. If I open the link 'MB Dashboard' manually it brings up the dashboard no problem. Once I'm in the dashboard, I start going through the setup wizard. Once I get to "Setup your media library", I run into an issue where it says: "Access to the path 'D:\System Volume Information' is denied." "Access to the path 'E:\System Volume Information' is denied." It will not let me progress any further. These are obviously system folders. They are restricted, and hidden folders that I do not want to mess with. I am unsure as to why this program is attempting to access them as well. Please let me know what I may need to do to resolve this. bawsly_log.zip
  19. MB3 currently doesn't support the following folder structure... [\org{0, n}] [\artist\{0,1}] [\org {0,n}] \album where org=organisational subfolder {0,n}= zero to many instances []=optional Could such support be added, or alternatively could an xml tag/file be recognised by mb3 to treat organisational folders as organisational and NOT as artists/albumartists. eg M:\Music\Soundtracks\Blade Runner\Tracks.mp3 M:\Music\Soundtracks\Top Gun\Tracks.mp3 M:\Music\Soundtracks\Jungle Book\Tracks.mp3 Soundtracks is detected (shown in dashboard) as an albumartist and artist.xml is placed on filesystem thanks for considering.
  20. I have just discovered Media Browser (currently using XBMC) and I’m in the process of playing around with it with the thought of using it perminantly. Very impressed so far.... I have a question though... I have created a set of media folders on my HDD for testing and used the following structure: Films Kids Films Kids TV Series Music Music Videos TV Series In Media Browser I have added the following media folders Films - Type = Movies Kids Films - Type = Movies Kids TV Series - Type = TV Shows Music - Type = Music Music Videos - Type = Music Videos TV Series - Type = TV Shows I have setup three User Profiles, Lee (With pin code) Stephanie (With pin code) Kids (No pin required) I have given the kids the Library Access to Collections (Made with the plugin Auto Box Sets) Films Kids Films Kids TV Series I have also restricted the User Kids to a parental rating of GB-12 on “Movies” & “TV Shows” Apart from the odd film which would bore them (Adult film with GB-12 rating), this works great. I could even edit the rating of those films for the perfect experiance for the Kids. For the users Lee & Stephanie I have removed the Library Access to Kids Films Kids TV Series However when loged onto either user Lee or Stephanie under the Movies selection there are Kids Films. Is there a way of stopping this from happening? I understand I have selected the Media Type as Movies, but there was no Kids Movies option, and thought this was for scraping. Is the Library Access feature still work in progress? I assumed this would disable the Kids Films from my Library view.

    Scan media library stops at 78.2%

    Hi, Great program, really beautiful job. Best HTPC platform on the market. I have a movie and show library for which the scan was running fine. Configured a new music folder and now the scan is stuck at 78.2%. Already tryed to stop the scan but it keeps showing "Stopping". Restarted the server three times and scan restarts but freezes at the same percentage. Running server Version 3.0.5211.41935 Attached is the the log file. Can anybody help? Many many thanks server-63532676439.txt
  22. Is there an easier way to manage the metadata for folders that aren't part of the default? My scenario: I have an "Adults" profile for my wife and myself that uses the default library which has 6 libraries: 3D, Music, Kids Shows, Kids Movies, Shows, Movies. I have a "Kids" profile for my kids (duh!) that is a subset: they only have access to Kids Shows and Kids Movies. For the default library, I was able to set primary images and sort order text, but for the kids I had to figure out that they were stored in MediaBrowser-Server/root/Kids and add folder.png to them (and I guess I'll add xml for the sort orders). Some thoughts: Can I temporarily make that profile able to edit metadata and I'm guessing I'd be able to use the web and then turn that off? What if there was a folder in their library that wasn't already part of the default, how would I manage that? Would I be better off making a superset profile that uses the default library that included every folder and then having both the Adult and Kids only use subsets? It would be nice if a true "admin" account option existed that when I was in edit mode on the left pane showed not only the "Media Library" but also any other user libraries as well - although it would get confusing when they share the same folders...

    Default Library Plus Others

    Hopefully this is a simple request, and one that others will see the merit in too. Essentially, the media center users in my home will typically all be sharing the same "Movies" and "TV" libraries, and only our "Music" libraries will be different. Because of this, I think it would probably be ideal if the server allowed for all users to use the Default Library (which I would define to include "Music" and "TV") and then be able to add custom libraries on top of that. I do see that this has been requested by one other (jj12345) as well, but it was in a post that included multiple items, so could have been overlooked. http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/1452-media-library-management/?hl=default
  24. Hello this is for the developers, first, GOOD JOB, clean nice, un-cluttered web interface/client. Server is coming along nicely as well! I will be donating again, I don't give money for software often, especially free software. questions: 1. How secure is the web client interface.. I have not dug yet, but I plan to use media browser as a subsonic replacement. I want to give users access to my server. But I don't want to open any huge security holes. As developers you know the back end well, what could you do from my web client with no login? and/or what could you do with a standard user login? 2. The media scanning seems to crash out often... it always says "stopping" at random times, no errors in logs, service just seems to restart. Also i have set the scheduled trigger to once a day at 1am and i'm finding the server scanning at random times throughout the day still... i removed all other triggers, all that remains is the new daily trigger. 3. i would like to customize the web interface that the media browser team has already worked so hard to perfect... Like, add my own logo on the dashboard.. Is this possible? or do i have to tear down the program and re compile? (again didn't dig to far yet... didn't look through directories and see what is available for playing) 4. Feature Request: A download button, so (myself of course) can download my media remotely via a web client? MEDIA: MP3's 142,404 (no doubled songs for one album) Music Videos 12,476 Movies uncompressed mpeg 310 (just started last year with movies!)

    Mixed Content Folder

    How do I deal with adding a folder to a collection that has mixed content (both TV and Movies)? Since I have to select collection type it seems impossible, or am I missing something? My ultimate goal is to have a menu item on the MB Classic Home Page for "Documentaries" for instance, but have it contain both TV and Movie documentaries. I'm willing to change my file structure if needed. Thanks.
