  1. Hi there, I recently switched from PLEX to Emby media server, as the features I'd like are richer with emby community. Now I'm facing two problems and need some help. Emby Server on Synology Windows 10 Pro for Workstations 21H2 Kodi v19 Matrix Emby next-gen addon 6.2.22 I organize collections by hand, as the automated feature doesn't follow my liking. The option in the library settings is disabled. 1) The movies and the collections show up in the emby web-frontend (i.e. Batman movies) When turning on KODI (W10 icw MadVR) many of the collections, and some content, get lost (i.e. missing Batman) They can't be found in novies and not in box-sets. If I turn off show collections option in KODI Media settings, all movies are shown individually under the movie section, the collections are still missing in the box-set section. Missing movies in collection (bottom right corner shows only 4 movies) but contains 39 elements So far I have been trying repair db, refresh db & collections. 2) There are many errors in the emby protocol (attached) I can't seem to fix (i.e. folder permissions) *** Error Report *** Version: Command line: /volume1/@appstore/EmbyServer/system/EmbyServer.dll -programdata /var/packages/EmbyServer/var -ffdetect /var/packages/EmbyServer/target/bin/ffdetect -ffmpeg /var/packages/EmbyServer/target/bin/ffmpeg -ffprobe /var/packages/EmbyServer/target/bin/ffprobe -nolocalportconfig -ignore_vaapi_enabled_flag -pidfile /var/packages/EmbyServer/var/EmbyServer.pid -defaultdirectory /volume1/Public -updatepackage emby-server-synology7_{version}_x86_64.spk -noautorunwebapp Operating system: Linux version 4.4.180+ (root@build13) (gcc version 8.5.0 (GCC) ) #42962 SMP Tue Sep 20 22:35:56 CST 2022 Framework: .NET 6.0.8 OS/Process: x64/x64 Runtime: volume1/@appstore/EmbyServer/system/System.Private.CoreLib.dll Processor count: 4 Data path: /var/packages/EmbyServer/var Application path: /volume1/@appstore/EmbyServer/system System.UnauthorizedAccessException: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path '/volume1/Movies/Die Unglaublichen (2004)/Die Unglaublichen (2004) 1080p DTS-ES.nfo' is denied. ---> System.IO.IOException: Permission denied --- End of inner exception stack trace --- The permissions (r/w) are set globally and inheritated downwards: I hope my description is sufficient, I'm not a native speaker so feel free to ask any questions.

  2. Hi! I just configured the Trakt plug-in on my Emby server. I ran the “Sync Library” task manually under Scheduled Tasks. It cleared out my whole collection in Trakt. Rather than be upset, I thought I’d just get curious about what’s happening. So I went to Trakt and “recollected” Season 1 of Westworld and after the scheduled task ran, my Trakt collection got emptied out again. I doublechecked the Emby page for the show and it has the correct Trakt link at the bottom of the page. How do we troubleshoot why the plug-in is not pushing my Emby collection to Trakt using this instance as an example?

    Collection based on Resolution

    So I've searched the forum, and read through the wiki, but haven't found an answer. I'm trying to create a collection that will update itself. So I'd like a collection for my 4k content, and if I add something new I'd like the system to recognize it's 4k and automatically put it in the collection for me. So it's not an automatic collection based on metadata from the provider, but off the information in the content itself. Is there a way to do that in Emby that I'm missing (entirely possible, I can be dense). Or would this be an FR I'd have to put together and see what comes of it?

    Version Grouping and Collections

    Hi All, I have tried searching for a solution but have not had success. If there has already been a thread for this please let me know. Context: I have both 4K and HD versions of both Movies and Shows, and these are kept in different folders, but in the same library. In other words, 4K movies and HD Movies are in the same library, and another library for 4K and HD TV Shows. I've kept the 4K and HD content in different folders because I have two instances each of Radarr and Sonarr configured. For example one instance of Radarr for 4K content, and another for HD content. Another reason they are in separate folders is because of space, as 4K content are on its own drive. Also I have put the 4K and HD content in the same library to allow version grouping. TV Shows are set up to do automatic version grouping. Movies I am still doing manually as I have not managed to get the plugin working yet. Problem: I have noticed that whether its a Movie or TV show when there are two versions grouped together and you add it to a collection, it only seems to add one of the versions to the collection. Therefore sometimes when you search for a movie and open it, it may show the version not added to the collection. I know its the different version as the covers are different on both. Changing the version in the drop down does not change this. I have taken a video to best show what I mean. I can manually resolve this by splitting the versions and adding both to collections, then merging again. This is easy to do for Movies but is time consuming and easy to miss one. For TV shows you need to disable Automatic Show Merging, add to collections, then enable it again. This is also very time consuming. Does anyone have any advice on a better way to do this? Is the problem the way I've set it up, or is this perhaps something that could be addressed in a future version? Emby Versions and Collections.mp4
  5. HI, I moved my library to a new server and did not take my configs with me. On the old Server Collections were created without problems. With the Plugin? Now nothing is grouped together. In Library I have "collection information from metadata downloaders" activated. And I already scanned the library anew. However, there is no Collection ID or whatever in the Movie Metadata. Furthermore I have multiple Versions of the same Video, but they will be added separately.... What do I have to do to group them? I have seen that I have to use a "-" to denote the Versions, but in the old Server it partially worked without and now it does not work with hyphens either. ...I know that I can do it manually but I would like to know how to do it automatically. @Happy2Play @cayars

    Disable Collections

    My emby Server randomly created a collection for films and I don't know why. I didn't change anything. The films it added to the collection are on the server for a few months now but the collection must have been created just a few days ago, I just noticed it. I deleted the collection, but still it appears between the libaries in the libary view. How can I disable and delete collections. I see no reason to use this feature but I see no way to delete is as normal libaries. Im using v Regards Skyobliwind
  7. Hi, As the title suggests I can't seem to get the Collections to automatically populate. If I've understood correctly, the AutoBoxSet plugin is now a built in feature so Collections should automatically generate but nothing. I've tried a Metadata refresh and a Library Scan but still empty. Does anybody know how to resolve this? Thanks in advance
  8. Since upgrading to Emby, I noticed a few of my movie collections getting duplicated. It seems to be related to the presence of the Ampersand character in the set name. (Note: This is on an ASUSTOR AS-5304T NAS). Here's the example of "Harold & Kumar Collection": I've attempted to delete one or the other collection. But the duplication keeps coming back. In the "nfo" of each movie, I see the following line: <set>Harold &amp; Kumar Collection</set> I've deleted both collections and changed the set in the "nfo" to: <set>Harold and Kumar Collection</set> Well, then (after a metadata scan) it shows 3 collections: And in the "nfo", I now see 2 set tags: <set tmdbcolid="30663"> <name>Harold &amp; Kumar Collection</name> </set> <set tmdbcolid="30663"> <name>Harold and Kumar Collection</name> </set> At this point, I am running out of workaround strategies. Hence my cry for help. Thank you so much for your assistance! Jeff
  9. I have just started using the Emby apps installed both on the Chromecast with Google TV and 4K Fire Sticks and am loving not having to cast from my iPad anymore! However, I'm still trying to figure the best way to organize all my various content. Upon reading through the forums about collections within collections and how it seems like that may never happen (no idea WHY that would be so hard....), I found some other users that were assigning Playlists to Collections as an alternative and have done that a LOT. Unfortunately, when I browse the Collections and pull up a Playlist --- the playlist has no content -- there is nothing there to select/play. If I go directly to the Playlists tab to open the playlist it works just fine. This totally defeats the point of using the playlists as sub-collections and, thus, puts me back at square one. Is this expected behavior? Is there any chance it would ever be fixed? Thanks!

    Collection no content

    Moin, I only noticed it now, so it may have been like this before. Collections" can no longer be displayed in the server. They ALL have no content. Is this only the case with me? Version
  11. Hi Emby community. Hope you're all well. On my Emby it is very slow to resume video if it resumes at all. Is this a common issue? On all the platforms I use Emby on, it either stalls when I try to scrub through the video (like say to the halfway mark) or just starts it back at the beginning. Any thoughts on this? Also, is it possible to adjust the display of the files in my Colletions on the android box to get rid of the Netflix like side scrolling and just have a thumb wall? All the best and Merry Christmas!
  12. Hey all i have had a bit of an idea and would like to share with the devs to see if this would be possible. as you can see from the first photo this is how the collections column looks like now and i would like to talk you through the new design idea i have had with the following pictures. second photo : Okay so as you can kinda see i have extended the view panel for what would be available in the selected collection when being hovered over by mouse or keyboard, this would then show what movies our available in that current collection that uploaded to your server. along with its collection logo and information. if there is more than 4 movies in you collection you would then be able to scroll from left to right to show the 5th 6th etc movies. also just to note when closing this panel to see the next collection you could press your back button on your keyboard or mouse to show other collection under the view panel. Photo 3: So in this photo, i am showing you that when hovering over one of the selected films it will in-large the same as emby currently when hovering over films along with the movie logo and information and metadata information ie date added, ratings, length etc. once clicked it will then redirect to the movies page then being able to press play from there. Photo 4: The last photo is just showing when hovering to the next film it is showing its in-large image and information. I hope you guys like this idea and same for the devs as well. not sure if it would be feasible or even a good idea but just thought i would share with you and hope you liked it haha.

    Métadonnées TMDB Collection

    Bonjour à tous Je ne pense pas avoir trouvé de sujet traitant de cet exemple précis, mais s'il en existe désolé pour ce post.. Mon problème est le suivant : j'ai en physique sur mon Synology des séries genre Game Of Thrones et je souhaiterais y associer les métadonnées de TMDB avec Emby d'installé sur ma Shield Nvidia , seulement l'ID de Games of Thrones ici 1399 correspond à "tv" alors que dans le plugin TMDB d'Emby , il n'y a que "collections" comment faire , je n'arrive pas à trouver un plugin sympa qui gère bien toutes les métadonnées pour les séries et collections. Merci de votre aide.
  14. Is it possible to generate a Collection in Emby by pulling from Trakt, using either one or both of 'collected' or 'watched' status in Trakt? Alternatively, to allow marking 'collected' or 'watched' as Favorites. I can see how to do it manually: 1. Pull Sync from Trakt, 2. Filter Playstate Played, 3. Manually mark each series as Favorite or add to a Collection. But am not sure if there is an auto-generate method to do this. The logic is: When moving to a new server with new content it can be handy for each user to mark the TV shows they like. Kind regards
  15. Hallo Zusammen, kann man irgendwie bestimmte Filmkollektionen ausblenden lassen in emby? hab jetzt z,b eine Kollektion Disney und in Ihr sind sämtliche anderen Filmkollektionen wie Toy Story, Cars etc. hinterlegt. Jedoch werden mir die Kollektionen auch nochmals in der Filmübersicht angezeigt. Bsp. Kinderfilme Cars Collection, Disney Collection,Peter Pan, Frozen, Toy Story Collection Disney > Cars Collection, Toy Story Collection gewollt wäre das nur in der Disney Kollektion die dort hinterlegten Kollektionen angezeigt werden. Kinderfilme Disney Collection, Peter Pan. Frozen Disney > Cars Collection, Toy Story Colection

    More /Collections Endpoints

    I'm noticing that the Collections endpoints are fairly limited I would like to see: GET /Collections that obviously retrieves all collection resources. GET /Collections/{id} that retrieves a single collection resource. Those are the most important that are missing. Thanks in advance
  17. I'm not sure how much the screenshot helps, but for some reason, the system automatically creates a 'collection' for these 2 movies even though they are not technically related other than the fact that they have the same name in the title: 1) Enter the Ninja 2) Revenge of the Ninja Don't judge me for my bad taste in cheesy 80's ninja movies I keep deleting the collection, only to have it show up again the next day. Any idea what's happening here? server_log.txt

    Problem with Collection

    I'm having a strange problem with a collection. I had one for Star Wars movies, and at one point I accidentally deleted one of the files on the back-end and the collection got borked - it no longer would show all of the Star Wars films in the collection - several of them just started showing up as if they were not part of the collection and I could not successfully add them to the collection. To try to fix the problem, I made copies of all of the mkv/m4v files in another folder that Emby wasn't set up to scan. I only copied the media files and none of the other stuff (.nfo, .jpeg's, .png's). Then I deleted all of the Star Wars films using the Emby interface (using the delete command for each movie within Emby). They all disappeared from Emby, but for a couple of them it didn't delete the media files from the filesystem (it did seem to delete everything else). I manually deleted those from the filesystem. Then I noticed that the old collection was still showing up, so I went into the metadata manager and figured out how to delete it. Then I waited a day. I checked to make sure all visible traces of my entire Star Wars collection was gone. I re-scanned and refreshed multiple times. I even re-booted Emby Server and the Win10 Pro VM that it runs on. Then I copied the media files back over into my "Movies" folder. Emby scanned the folder and found all of the movies, including multiple versions (where applicable). Then I waited another day. Then I created a new Collection called "Star Wars Series". The previous collection I had was called "Star Wars Movies" I started trying to add all of the movies to the new collection. As I did, I did not get any error messages or other issues. Only five of the movies show up in the Collection. I check the metadata manager and it appears that all of the movies should be showing up. The other movies are stubbornly refusing to appear in the collection, but they do still show up in my list of "all movies". Any ideas how I can get those movies to go into the collection where they belong? I have some other collections and they all appear to work normally. I've added a few films to other collections recently with no problem. I'm a lifetime premiere member, and I have Emby set to automatically update - it's on the current version ( Screen shots attached. Do you need any log files or anything else to help make sense of what is going on?

  19. Hey guys, I am running into a problem for several days now and I tried a lot, but did not come to a solution. Hope you can help or give me some advice. I have noticed that one off my collection (movie collection organized by auto box sets plugin) is not brought together correctly. - I guess at least. There should be two movies in that collection. They are both listed in the collection.xml, but while looking at that collection, it is only the first movie of the two shown. In the movie library overview - with group all media in a collection checked - is the collection present as an item and right next to it the second movie, which should normally be in that collection. I removed both movies, added them back to the library and did a complete library scan + refreshed the collections via the auto box sets plugin. -> Still the same outcome. I reinstalled the auto box sets plugin. -> Still the same outcome. I created a collection manually and scanned / refreshed everything. -> Collection folder has been created including a collection.xml that has movie items in it, but the whole collection is not showing up. Am I doing something wrong or am I misunderstanding something ?
  20. I presently have 3 collections for Clint Eastwood Movies, They are "Clint Eastwood-Dirty Harry", "Clint Eastwood-Westerns" and "Clint Eastwood-Philo and Clyde". I would like to be able to create one collection for Clint Eastwood and under that collection would be the three collections above. I thought there was something mentioned in the forum that made the above possible but can't seem to find it. This is NOT a feature request rather a "how to" if it is possible. Thanks JohnnyM

    Collections under movies?

    Hi All I have installed the collection plugin, but when I select a random movie then below that movie I don't see the collection? Only a "More like this" (Also how do I extend the list of More like this? to be longer)

    Every movie has it's own collection!!

    Hi having a collection issue. (one of many but that's for another forum ). I am running server on Freebsd (IO Cage Jail on Freenas). I have the default Auto Box Sets plugin Every movie has it's own collection and it's driving me nuts. I have reset, Auto Box Sets, Removed and reinstalled the plugin along with removing the collection, restarted server but it just creates the Box Set for everything! It is set to create Box set with 2 movies, I have changed this to 3 and it still does it. Attaching the server log. Thanks. embyserver.txt
  23. Hello (German Translation: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/70452-verschiedene-problemefragen-keine-anzeige-von-musikvideos-filter-obwohl-kein-filter-gesetzt-ist-l%C3%B6schen-von-sammlungstitel/) I've been using emby for some time now and recently got a lifetime license. Now I also had some time to sort my collections. I have some problems or questions: Initial situation: emby is installed on a Synology disk station (both with current version) and the libraries are called via Kodi (verse 18 Leia). I have successfully set up the following DB and after some long evenings I have set up everything cleanly and uniformly. The concerts did most of the work: - e-movies (works great) - e-evergreens (would like to separate the oldies from the current movies) - e-Collection (only from e-movies) - e-series (no problems) - e-Concerts Now to the problems/questions: 1. an exclamation mark is displayed for filters at e-concerts (Figure 1.1). If I click on the filter, but nowhere a filter is displayed (Figure 1.2). What can be the problem? In general a button "delete all filters" would be good. Here I don't see the concerts under music video titles but only under directories. 2 First I set the content type to music videos. The results were not clear enough for me. Then I created a new (second) DB and changed the content type to "Movies". Worked satisfactorily (about a third were recognized). The rest I changed/added manually). Unfortunately the concerts are now displayed in Kodi on Movies (Skin Confluence;Titan is not (yet) possible, emby). 2. DB with content type music videos created. Unfortunately no titles are shown in emby (picture 2). But under directories all existing directories are shown. I used the following structure: Directory "Artist" - Directory "Artist - Concert title" - File "Artist - Concert title.ext", e.g. Andreas Bourani/Andreas Bourani - Hey/Andreas Bourani - Hey Live. This is also how the concert is displayed in the MovieDB. If I try to identify the concert via emby (manual input), I get no results, the screen stays black (not even over ID 380672). What am I doing wrong? - Maybe you can't create another database with the same directory (bug/error/intention?) Before the question comes: Yes I have restarted the server - no change. Questions: 1. can I see somewhere the status of the scanning of the libraries (flashes on me only briefly). So I don't see when emby is finished scanning. 2. In the collection there are two collections with the same content but different names. If I want to delete one of the collection titles, I get a hint that the media will be deleted at the same time. I tried and deleted three movies (I had a backup ;-)). There must be a way, without creating the whole collection again. 3. e-Collection has no picture in the overview. The other databases have drawn a profile picture from the contents. Can I do this afterwards? (I don't want to create and upload a picture extra). If you have questions or something is unclear, then simply ask. I am looking forward to your answers and even more about solutions ... ;-)

    Move Collection

    Hi I have merged two libraries server side. I one of the liberales I have some collections. But since collections are bound to a library I wont have them in my new (merged library). Can I move collections from the old Library to the new one? Perhaps direct in the Database //Jens Borrisholt
  25. Wasn't sure where to post this but since much of it has to do with the server update I hope it is best served here. Of my libraries all work fine that have as Content = TV and Content = Mixed. Content = Movies is not working as expected and I am standing before a big decision and need help and advise from the devs @@ebr, @@Luke @@throgmorton. I display all my content in EMC with Throg's themes and have several Movie collections with a top folder which has the images plus a file folder.xml then as many sub folders as there are Movies or Blu-ray discs containing extras, like in the Star Wars or Matrix collection. I need a way forward from here. My main interest is in having a HTPC display my content in the Home Theater. At present I am running server version plus EMC beta .317. As mentioned the mixed content displays the Collection of different Blu-ray discs under one Folder (Group) correctly the way it always has. My options are to convert my three libraries with Content = Movies to Mixed Content which are 108 Animated movies, 513 movies G - PG13 and 254 Movies R rated. Needles to say that requires backup of images and meta data first and it is time consuming I estimate a few days. However since I have no idea what the future may hold and Mixed Content may go the way of Legacy Browsing so I need a suggestion from the devs for a way forward before spending time on changing my setup. In addition I could swear there was an entry in themes in the EMC configuration an entry for Legacy View, was that removed in version .317 or is it someplace else? What are my other options for having 1 top folder with all associated content appearing below it, whether it is something like Mission Impossible 1 - 5 or extras like documentaries pertaining to the collection? Don't have this fuzzy warm feeling at the moment, but consider myself fortunate to have all images and meta data nothing lost during the update.
