  1. I have some tv shows that I previous recorded, and it has subtitles burned within the video. So my question is: Is there any way to tell Emby those specific files have subtitles? At the moment Emby dont think there is any subtitles

    Primary posters not downloading

    Greetings, I have had Emby for a long time now, and for a while it has had an issue where the primary images aren't being downloaded automatically for movies I add to the database. If I manually go in and edit images, I can do a search and grab the primary image. But for some reason, Emby isn't doing this automatically. I do notice that if I try to manually grab the primary image, in the selector, the first thumbnail is always blank. I'm guessing that's some website that Emby can no longer reach? And perhaps this is what it is set to as the default image to search for? Is there a way to tr

    Fetching metadata via system proxy

    Hi all Literally just finished a docker install of Emby, and at the moment everything seems to be working nicely, BUT, I cannot retrieve metadata. I am behind a proxy, and have no VPN/other way of connecting to the internet. I have a system proxy configured, but it seems Emby is not taking it into account. It may be that it is because Emby is not aware of it via Docker container, and I am not sure if adding it via an environment variable will help? In the past, with Java based products, I was able to add "-Dhttp.proxy" option to the launching parameters, and it would also help. Is ther

    Relocate Media Library Metadata

    I recently had a scenario where I had my Media and the Emby Server (portable) on the same drive. I relocated the Emby Server (portable) to a new drive. It correctly targeted the new location for ProgramData (../ProgramData) without configuration. However, the existing libraries (Movies, TV Shows) still had their metadata configured for the old location. The only solution to fix this was to remove the libraries and recreate them. This takes a considerable amount of time and bandwidth. Please add the ability to relocate a library's metadata location, or detect that the ProgramDat
  5. Emby on Synology DS216play with DSM 6.2.1 I have been using emby server on Synology has for a few months now. After a recent reset of NAS ( reinstall) and install of emby server, It fails to connect with external services. At present I am unable to add emby connect ID, search for meta data, check for updates to emby etc. It's like emby wouldn't connect to internet. I checked and internet is working fine on nas. I don't recall any extra settings to enable emby to access internet. Is there any? Could it be that these are related to problem may be at emby's end.? This is
  6. Is it or will it be possible for Emby to show the audio media info correctly in the near future? (audiostream with object sound) Right now it's only showing TrueHD or DTS-MA instead of Atmos / DTS:X The new MediaInfo version is now supporting this: "Dolby Atmos (in E-AC-3 or TrueHD): support of bed channel count/configuration + objects count + complexity index" I tested it and it shows the correct info: This would be a neat feature, makes it easier to see what audioformat the movie has.

    actor information

    Where does emby pull and store the meta-data on actors? The reason I'm asking is that I just watched "Buck Privates" (1941)and Shemp Howard is in the cast. When you open up the listing under his name all it shows is Birth and Death information, nothing else. If you go to the IMDB page for Buck Privates and then look up Shemp it shows his Bio. I have found several actors whose information is blank. Is there a way to force the actor data to update? Because someone like Shemp, Moe, Larry, and Curly's infromation should not be blank!
  8. i'm wondering if i'm missing something or if this feature is working as intended. does the "replace all metadata" with "replace existing images" selected also refresh metadata and images on items marked as "lock this item from future changes" ? my goal is to set some movies to have custom poster images and/or custom sort titles, lock them, and still be able to refresh the rest of the library, but right now my custom selections are getting wiped out. how do i set my server to really and truly lock metadata and/or images on an item?

    Is Metadata from guide used?

    I'm finding there's a lot of things from live TV that will never be in theTVDB or IMDB databases. Or, they are behind or not accurate. When a recording is saved in the library, does it initially use the information from the guide to start the metadata? Seems like the Title, the poster image, rating, genre, tagged with channel recorded from, etc could be used. And, I would see that this data would not get trumped by the other metadata refreshes. The guide data should be gospel. Then only if it's wrong, we can manually correct it.
  10. I just tried the Folder Sync plugin and it works as expected. Except, it only copied the media. I have my metadata save in files with the media. Can you also copy the metadata files as well. You could make it optional with a setting? My plan is to install Emby on the Laptop and take it with me to use offline at my vacation home where I have multiple TVs using Rokus. I will create a library to point at the sync folder. I'm assuming if the metadata files are already there, it will use them and not refresh them? I'm current using the BETA.
  11. I use emby as a server for large amount of pictures. I put all my pictures for emby to manage but I don't want some of them to be seen by my family so I tag my private folders with a tag named "priv" and I use the "block items with tags" to deny access (yes, I use parental control on my parents). However it would be more convenient for me if I could somehow add the tag from the filesystem level e.g. create a file named "folder.nfo" or similar and put the tags there. The advantage is that these files would be automatically backed up along with the content to some other drive. Other advantage: i

    Mkv metadata

    I believe there is a bug where Emby Theatre is not reading track titles embedded in the metadata of mkv's. eg. Blu-Ray's rips I've entered information in each track title such as the Audio info - DTS-X 7.1 English. Emby seems to be creating it's own, eg. Eng DTS 7.1.

    Cannot Correct Show Data

    Hello, I'm experiencing problems with a particular anime. .Hack//SIGN is known for being difficult in general due to the strange way the title is written. It's almost impossible to find online as it is without knowing how to spell it. I've found the correct variations that trigger Emby to identify it correctly, however when I identify, refresh the metadata, and try to change it, I keep getting stuck with a crappy new show called Hack which I've never heard of and couldn't care less about. Emby simply WILL NOT CHANGE my show to the correct one. I don't know what to do. Any suggestio

    MusicBrainz Metadata

    Hi, I usually do a preprocess of my music with Picard/MusicBrainz before uploading. Also, Emby uses MusicBrainz to scan for metadata. I'm wondering that maybe this is a redundant process and I can safely disable the Musicbrainz metadata from Emby. Am I correct? Thank you in advance.

    Metadata tags usage

    How are metadata tags in Emby server used? When I use the Edit Info window to add tags to a TV episode, the tags appear on the episode page, but they are not clickable, and they do not appear in search results, nor in the library filter.

    Actors Metadata not Refreshing

    Hi All, I'm not sure if this may be a bug or not (happy to provide logs if needed), but my actors metadata is not refreshing/displaying after running the Refresh People scheduled task. Images seem to be working fine, but not the metadata. I understand that these are now stored in the database from reading another post & no longer in the metadata folder, but I have mine as xml in the People folder along with the images. I have the Emby XML plugin installed to support (I assume this is needed?), but the only way I can seem to get these to display is doing a search from within Emby Th
  17. A couple of questions: 1. I have a significant amount of artists lacking metadata (fetches metadata for individual albums) but nothing for the actual artists. Adding the last.fm plugin didn't alter much of that either. A few examples of artists lacking metadata, even after doing individual re-scans: Khalid, Future, Roy Woods, Arty, Billie Eilish. In other words, popular artists with metadata available via MusicBrainz/Last.fm. 2. Plex pulls each artists top tracks as part of the metadata, is this possible with Emby? 3. I've added multiple artists to my favorites, however when I'm
  18. I'd like to suggest some improvements for the "Original Title" field in Emby. - Make it searchable - Make it possible for Emby admin to choose which one ("Title" or "Original Title") appears in UI (default: "Title") - If possible, make it automatically fetch title metadata of the country where the item was produced, if the provider sends it.
  19. In addition to (but not contingent on) a related feature request ( https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/43845-emby-server-emby-theater-support-nfo-files-and-automatic-metadata-lookup-for-extras/ ), I recommend Emby Theater display the full Title, Duration and any other Metadata below the currently selected Extra using something along the lines of the UX pattern called "Thumbnail grid expanding preview". See the following for examples: https://tympanus.net/codrops/2013/03/19/thumbnail-grid-with-expanding-preview/ https://tympanus.net/Tutorials/ThumbnailGridExpandingPreview/ ht
  20. As I gradually am getting my library transitioned into Emby one thing that I've noticed is that I have some TV shows where the anti-spoiler feature makes sense because the shows episodes have a lot of continuity. But for other shows continuity is not really an issue and I would normally hop around watching whichever episode interested me at the time (The Simpsons is an example of this kind of show). So I think it could be useful to add an option in the Series Metadata to enable or disable Anti-Spoiler functionality for that Series, and this setting would take precedence over any global set
  21. After one of Emby updates I found that it started to reassign manually assigned season/episode numbers. This happens during refreshing metadata, so: I lost a lot of my media library metadata. I'm unable to recover it - after assigning REAL season/episode number to file - Emby drops it to default, after refreshing the metadata. Is this new behavior correct? Also - is it correct behavior, that now Emby metadata manager does not show and allow to fix "unrecognized" season/episodes?
  22. Hi I recently updated to the latest version and realised I could relocate some of the system files. I decided to move the metadata and transcoding folders off the OS drive and onto the faster and raid protected media volume. it looks like that was a really bad move, as i lost all downloaded metadata on the next library refresh. new stuff is fine, but my 10TB of old stuff has no metadata anymore - no people, genre, descriptions etc. just the artwork that is saved to folders. I tried copying the old metadata folder into the new one (its huge ~ 4GB) - restart - re scan - no love I tri
  23. Have tried to search for an existing thread on the subject but could not find. I am experiencing issues with a few titles in my library where the metadata is impossible to update. I cant seem to find any particular similarities between the titles (filetype etc.) It just seems to be random. It can download data from a dataprovider such as TMDB but if I try to change something (add/remove Genre, tags etc.) when I press "Save" it just gets stuck with the turning saving icon forever (tried leaving it for an hour but nothing. We are talking maybe maximum 2-5% of my titles. Anyone that can

    Random language metadata

    Hi, If refresh metadata by choosing replace all metadata it scrapes data in random language although I set up scraping language to English and country to USA in library config. Anyone has idea what could be wrong or am I missing something? Thanks.
