  1. This maybe a bug or just the underlying behavior to get multi-versions to work in Emby. According the Emby Wiki you can name the movies files with the following naming convention Multiple versions of the same content can be stored in a single movie folder. /Movies /300 (2006) /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - 1080p.mkv /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - 1080p-trailer.mp4 /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - 4K.mkv /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - 720p.mp4 /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - extended edition.mp4 /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - directors cut.mp4 /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - 3D.hsbs.mp4 Each version must begin with th
  2. I've been trying all day to get Emby to download the metadata for a specific show from TheTVDB, but parts of it aren't coming through, especially the Specials. I've tried multiple times, wiping the nfo files, double checking the filenames, using the Identify tool, etc, none of it has helped. The show is Mai-Otome. I've tried other shows and they seem to be working fine. I dug through the log and found these two errors: 2020-04-15 21:25:01.811 Error App: Error in TheTVDB *** Error Report *** Version: Command line: C:\Users\johndoe\AppData\Roaming\Emby-Server\system\EmbySer
  3. Hi Could you please add add a db service like goodreads.com (they have and IPI) or something that could identify and download images and metadata for ebooks and audiobooks by name like movies and series? Thanks
  4. @@cayars In my main settings for Emby, under Library/Advanced, I have a metadata path set up that points to a spare SSD. I created a test 'movies' folder and placed a movie in there and checked the box for "...metadata saver to .nfo" and also checked the box to save artwork into this folder. First (maybe dumb) question is, when Emby scanned that test folder and saw the movie in there, why wasn't the artwork save into that folder? But now onto the main point of my post; with Plex, whenever I would hop to a new distro, I would follow the instructions for backing up all the necessary
  5. Everything else is being matched fine, but with music it's a big hit and miss. Most of the artists in my library got identified, but only ~50% of them have pictures downloaded for them. I downloaded Last.fm hoping it could help and logged in in case it would be needed, but that didn't help at all. I set last.fm as the highest in library settings. For example "Alstroemeria Records" has 8 photos listed in last.fm-s page yet Emby found 0. Also how to I merge artists? Plex has a option for it (Select couple, then merge under options). Is there an alternative in emby, would help to clean up a
  6. One of the supported TV file naming conventions is: 02 Episode Name.extFor a show that airs every weekday, the episode number often grows to three digits. For example: /Some Show/Season 2/123 Some Title.m4v Emby mis-identifies the file above as Some Show, Season 1 (even though it is in the Season 2 folder), Episode 23 (even though the filename has the number 123 in it). Is it really not possible to support this format for three digit episode numbers?
  7. I am not sure what has happened but Emby can't seem to pull any movie posted for Russian TV shows. It can only pull banners. Version Sample: https://www.thetvdb.com/series/211771

    Don't update metadata

    My server stopped updating the metadata files. The task reports time out. embyserver.txt
  9. Just a couple of quick questions. 1....If I have 'Refresh metadata every 30 days' selected in library settings, does this replace all the metadata or just missing metadata? 2....If I have a series locked at series level, and then add a new episode, will metadata still be retrieved, and will the new episode be locked or unlocked?
  10. A feature i would find really useful would be to see additional metadata when looking through "on now" and "upcoming movies" for live TV. In particular the ability to click on the "on now / upcoming" movie poster & where the options are to watch / record / more... have additional data such as IMDB & rotten tomatoes ratings, movie runtime & a link to be able to watch the movie trailer prior to setting a recording. Would this ever be considered / possible?
  11. I've probably missed a setting here somewhere so I hope it's a simple fix. I spent a few hours last week refreshing metadata and updating images for the many titles i had that hadn't auto scraped....there were a lot. Only to come back on today to find they have all reverted back to thumbnails of the movie..... What have I done wrong please. Most movies scrape properly and stay correct and all will scrape the correct info if go through and manually re-scan them.
  12. In the never-ending fight against bad info, images etc. I've been editing IMDB and TmDB info in the Metadata Manager and saving each file which is known to have incorrect or missing info. However, I've been wondering (as of late) is this the right place to be doing these edits. Is there a simpler or more comprehensive way to have the fetcher/ scrapper pull in the correct info?
  13. English: Hello, I tell you about the problem I have. I'm trying to update metadata for the One Piece series (season 21) and I have the following settings in the series library: And what is happening is that tvdb has only the titles and not the synopsis, and most of the episodes on tvdb are blocked from being edited. In theory as tvdb does not have the synopsis, it should be taken from tmdb, but it is not. And I see that in the cache of tmdb-tv it creates a file "season-21-en.json", which has the data of the episodes, but emby apparently does not use them. I clarify that I am lo

    artist.nfo please

    I can't find artist.nfo in APPDATA folder, only cover images there, and nothing happens if I modify or set some dummy nfo's files in my artist folders. I gave me all rights to the whole drive (D:\) but nothing happens... I need to format computer and/or move my media library often, I'm looking for solution using metadata as files or embedded into them. I think emby could be the answer (I came from Plex). Can someone help me? please. log.txt
  15. Hello I have started adding home photos into my Emby library (videos home videos and photos), I am using Adobe bridge to add the IPTC metadata. I know Keywords get mapped to Tags I was wondering how Emby map other fields? I want to be able to mass tag photos and have Emby auto fill the following feilds: Studio People Genre I can't really find any guide around photos and metadata management for Emby and have been trying a few different fields but nothing but keyword seem to populate.

    Backup And Restore Server

    Hi I'm doing a backup test on my mac. I used the server configuration backup extension (plugins) to do my restoration and I copied the metadata in the root folder where the metadata is located after the scan and that before scanning the libraries. The process is as long as if I hadn't transferred the metadata. I wonder if this is normal or if I should also use the NFO extension. In fact I am not sure what exactly this extension does apart from creating .nfo files next to each file. Thank you Edit: I think I used the metadata of another version of Emby that I had installed and which was not

    Artist Info & Artist Images

    1. Is there a way to load artists with pictures only but without artist info. The info provided by musicbrainz is often too long. 2. which metadata downloader must be enabled to load artist pictures?
  18. Hello, I'm having a problem with the display in the Metadata Manager for "Movies" media libraries. Indeed, for these media libraries, the variable " serveritemtype " is set to " Movie ", while for media libraries of the " TV " type , the display is in " Folder " mode eg: " Films " type media library : <li role = "treeitem" serveritemtype = "Movie" collectiontype = "undefined" aria-selected = "false" aria-level = "2" aria-labelledby = "8_anchor" id = "8" class = "jstree-node jstree -leaf "> " TV " type media library : <li role = "treeitem" serveritemtype = "Folder" collect

    Lock all movie metadara

    Is there a way I can lock the metadata for all movies without going into each one? I have a large library and doing this would take some considerable time. If not, would this be a possible addition to the server?
  21. I'm having issues when sorting with AutoOrganize, when I pick all the settings and click okay for the series I get error:null with this in the error log *** Error Report *** Version: Command line: /opt/emby-server/system/EmbyServer.dll -programdata /var/lib/emby -ffdetect /opt/emby-server/bin/ffdetect -ffmpeg /opt/emby-server/bin/ffmpeg -ffprobe /opt/emby-server/bin/ffprobe -restartexitcode 3 -updatepackage emby-server-deb_{version}_amd64.deb Operating system: Unix 64-Bit OS: True 64-Bit Process: True User Interactive: True Runtime: file:///opt
  22. I am planning to run both a production & a test Emby server pointing to the same source for their libraries. However, I want only the production to update the nfo metadata in the respective media folders and the test server to only read them since I don't want to make all the changes twice. I did find this topic while searching: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/26375-can-i-have-2-emby-servers-both-accessing-the-same-media-library/ but its a little old and I just wanted to confirm the changes to be done on the test server to prevent any writes and only read the nfo files.
  23. Hi all, New to Emby, which I am trying to setup purely for mobile device access. So far, Emby is not pulling any metadata for my media files. Here is how media is setup: 1. Movies are stored in /movies/<decade>/<year>/movie_title.mkv For Blu-Ray - /movies/<decade>/<year>/movie_title 2. Series are store /series/<series_title>/series_title_s01/series_title_s01e01.mkv 3. There are no .nfo stored with the movie/series files 4. Emby has read only access to the media volumes 5. Emby is running on a dedicated Linux VM, with binary install (not docker) The
  24. hello, @ll; as a complete newby to Emby, I am wondering about some smaller aspects of music metadata handling; specifically: are all metadata amendments caused by Emby stored on Emby only? Or will they get written back into the individual files's taggage = sync back down to my actual library?(like : play and skip count/s, genre updates) etc. will genre information written by Emby's information enrichment be added to prexisting genre information on a track or will it replace pre-existing genres? + (probably floating around here somewhere already, but I haven't been able to spot it) :

    Problems after installation

    Welcome I am trying to replace Kodi with Emby but I have problems I installed from the Emby repository and added write access to the user. Emby scanned the Library but found nothing about the metadata. Even if I enter the title or imdb id by hand, nothing is found either. Similarly, when I enter the plug-in catalog. No plugins appear. My server is DS412 +
