    Channel collection

    Has the channel collection option been removed permanently? Thanks
  2. Okay so some of you might be aware or might not be aware of the fact that now when a movie collection is created a primary image and a thumb image is no longer auto-generated previewing all the titles in the collection. My request is simple add this back in but as an option under the "edit images" section of collections. Can simply be a button that once clicked auto generates a thumbnail and primary image of which you can then delete or keep. This way if you don't need/want the custom image made for that collection because you have a better image of your own you can use that image(s) instead.

    Grouping Content with Tags

    Hello, Is it possible to group tv shows or movies by tags? I currently use tags inside of Kodi to create user collections, but I think it would be more efficient for me to create tags in Emby and hopefully the plugin could pass these on to Kodi, if this is even possible. Still trying to learn the ropes. Thanks for any and all help.

    Long delay opening TV Collection

    I am having issues in WMC with TV Collections. Pertinent information: Server Version 3.0.5597.1 MB Classic/WMC Version TV Collection: BATMAN The Batman multiple Seasons Batman Beyond multiple Seasons Batman Animated multiple Seasons The New Batman multiple Seasons Beware The Batman multiple Seasons I Select the top level of BATMAN I Select BATMAN BEYOND It takes over 30 seconds for the Batman Beyond collection to open. I am having this same issue with other TV Shows that do not have multiple TV Shows/Collections like Battlestar Galactica. I have cleaned the cache, restarted the Emby Server, the PC Server. Nothing is making any difference. I have 3 Windows PCs using MB Classic and have tested each one and have the same issue on all three. I've attached the log file. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Log.txt

    Cannot recreate a collection

    Version 3.0.5607.2 and Version 3.0.5615.16089 Updated to DEV build. This fixed recent collection coverart issue. The issue was identified in the 3.0.5607.2 release version and persists in this dev build. I am creating and deleting collections via web interface. Deleted an entire collection via the web interface and then attempted to recreate it but, after deleting the collection, I could not recreated it as I kept getting the error message" "A child with the id XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX already exists." After deleting the collection folder ...AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Server\data\collections\XXXX[boxset], Emby recreates an empty by that name folder on server restart. I deleted the folder ...AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Server\data\metadata\XX\XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX referenced in error message above but error message persists when trying to recreate the collection. Thanks, RedStripe

    Orphaned Collections

    In trying to fix another issue, I removed a movie library and replaced it with the same library using a UNC path rather than a local path, then re-scanning the entire library. However, this caused a problem with existing collections made up of titles from the old library. I now cannot see the original collections and when I try to re-create collections for those titles, I get an error stating the collection already exists. I tried editing the collection.xml files in AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Server\data\collections\ to update the local paths to the UNC location, and re-scanning the libraries, but the collections remain missing. In the server log, I get messages stating it cannot locate content for these collections at the old local path (Warn - BaseItem: Unable to find linked item at path M:\My Movies\...). Metadata manager does not show any of the orphaned collections or content either. If possible, it would be great to be able to restore the original collections, but if that is not possible, I'd be fine with deleting the original orphaned collections and re-adding the titles. Even deleting all collections and starting from scratch would be fine. Any ideas how I might do this?
  7. I have about 400 movies, several of which are collections. I have selected the option to group collections on the movie page. When rescanning the library the grouping of the collections on the movies page is not reflected for quite some time. Not sure how long it takes but more than 2 and a half hours (and less than a day) my case. When I check the next day they are grouped. Apparently, some process other than library scan is performing the grouping. Is there a way to force the grouping to occur in real-time?
  8. Hello all; I've been using MediaBrowser for a few years now, and am REALLY digging v3. Up until 2 days ago, I had several collections working, and I make frequent use of them, so I'd like to try to get them up-and running once again. I have one PC set up that acts as my media server (Media Browser Server Version 3.0.5154.1864). Sometimes I watch/listen to content on that same machine (MBC/MBT), and other times I use one of my Android devices to consume content. Regardless of which client I use however, my box sets/collections (while they still show up) are now appearing empty... despite the fact that I have made no changes to the folder structure/shortcuts used within them etc. None of my Media Libraries use the Default Library (which is not defined), but all of my user accounts have their own Media Libraries defined. Each of them has a "Box Sets" library defined (of type "Collections"). The one for "Whip" is defined with the location of "E:\Media\Video\Box Sets". I've recently added a path substitution as well: E:\MEDIA \\\E$\MEDIA I found another similar topic in this forum: http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/4628-one-boxset-not-showing-all-of-a-sudden/ and have tried the fix there, however that does not seem to be the fix I needed. I'm guessing that this would make the box set show up, and not its contents. I should point out however, that none of my boxsets do have that collection.xml (with the exception of the one that I created to test the other OP's resolution). Since creating that XML file, I have shut down the server, deleted my "library.db" file, and restarted the server. I also want to point out, that all of my collections are made up of shortcuts (*.lnk) that point to content that is indeed properly being recognized by Media Browser in my Movies section. Box Sets In Windows Explorer http://snag.gy/KFCyb.jpg Box Sets in Library Explorer --> Please note that all of the paths listed here under Linked Children's paths show double backslashes (is this just to escape the character?) http://snag.gy/I9U1Z.jpg I have not provided any log files just yet, but please do advise if you think they will be helpful, and I will be happy to post them. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. Blue
  9. Hello, is it possible to create a collection and add movies by something besides title? Say, I wanted to collect all movies by Paramount, or all movies with Clive Owen. Right now, the only option I see is "name" Thanks!
  10. The external IDs were present for Back to the Future Part I except for the tmvb collection ID. I went into the "collections" MBS server view and attempted to refresh the entire collection, at which point it told me the action would be "queued." However, no changes have occurred. Here's my concern: these movies were always appearing in the "collections" before whatever change took place. I have not paid close attention to when exactly "collections" were brought back into MBS as a mainstay (I know they were jettisoned from the MBC EHS for awhile, at least), but there's no reason why they should have stopped appearing/for this data to be lost. More strangely, some of these "collections" were only showing one movie (e.g., The Dark Knight Trilogy was previously only showing The Dark Knight), however now a couple of them are showing more movies again (e.g., now Batman Begins is showing up...but not The Dark Knight Rises to round out the set). It's incredibly bizarre for at least one or two movies to suddenly start disappearing from basically each of my collections at the same time without my intervention. This behavior is weird and I really think something is going on with the server, not my metadata management.
  11. MB-3.0.5434.27057 MCM-2.12 can media browser amend movie.xml files created by MCM generally? it seems that mb is unable to add TmdbCollectionName and TMDbCollectionId to movie.xml created originally by MCM steps to reproduce. 1. fetch movie with MCM (folder and files renamed to standard, movie.xml created) 2. copy movie into MB collection/rescan library. 3. MB is not aware that film is member of tmdb collection, no tmdb collection info in webclient or movie.xml alternatively a. delete xml from movie and rescan b. xml with tmdbcollectionid now present. anyone know of an alternative program that is good at identifying movie folder names/movie content, subtitles etc and renaming (whilst deleting non movie content and not creating a movie.xml that can trip up mb)?
  12. See thread http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/11711-display-correct-play-order/ for details and pictures Essentially trying to create a custom Collection and sort order that includes Movies and TV Episodes. I need to order down to the TV Episode level as there are movies that are relevant in between certain shows from a watch order. Right now the Add option for the collection shows TV Shows as a single item. Doesn't break down to seasons or episodes. JR

    Cannot delete Collections

    Version 3.0.5309.26857 running as a service. Please note there are 2 interrelated issues here: Issue #1) How does one delete a Movie Collection? There does not seem to be an option to delete one (a Move Collection) all at once. (This capability would be nice). ***I deleted all of the movies in a collection (rescanned the library)...yet the empty collection remains***. Issue #2) I have some collections that appear in the "Collection" view but do not group into a collection when the "Group movies into collections" option is selected on the Preferences->Display Settings page. I did not remember if I had created the collections using the webclient or manually so, I attempted to delete each Movie, with the aim to recreate them with the webclient. ***However, I receive the error "No collection title exists with the supplied Id. What do I do now to try and fix my collections?*** Thanks
  14. I have a movie that was missed by the collection app. I manually added it and a couple hours later it was gone again. I add the movie again and it disappears again. And again. And again. And again. Why is this happening over and over and over and over? Is there a way for me to lock a collection so the movies can't be changed automatically?
  15. Hi All - I have a Collection/Box Set being generated over and over that does not exist in TMDB and I would like it to stop. I have deleted it using Metadata Manager. I have deleted it manually. I keeps being regenerated and appears with no metadata artwork and a red triangle warning. None of the three movies in the collection are in any collections according to TMDB. They all three do have Wes Anderson in common. MB Auto Set [tmdbid=256533] Rushmore (1998) The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) Moonrise Kingdom (2012) Any ideas? Thanks, Tanamur
  16. For mixed folders, is it still possible to have tabs for latest, genres, people, and studios? For example, I have a mixed media folder for documentaries that contains TV series and Movies. It would be nice to be able to still have tabs for genres so that I could select content that I've labeled 'Animals', 'Space', or 'History' for example. At the same time, it would be good to be able to goto the studios tab and see all the NatGeo or HBO docos all in one place. I understand that mixed folders are tricky because you don't know what media types are in the folder, but I still think that all the content would contain genres, people, and studios etc, and if it doesn't, then maybe just could just be excluded while viewing that tab.

    Collection Icons where?

    I found these awesome collection icons in the fan art forum, but I cannot find where to put them on my server...The ones I'm referring to are the favorites icon/background, and the movie genre icon/background.
  18. Hi All Have had a hunt on here for anyone else having this issue, with no luck so here goes. I have an upcoming trailers collection of locally downloaded trailers,(not collected by the any MB plugins, only using Metabrowser to collect). My issue is that this collection is no longer even visible in MBC and while the collection is visible through the MBS web client, MB theater or the android client, the individual items are not visible/playable, which makes me suspect the server is not recognising the media files, perhaps due to them only being up to 150Mb.... only a guess tho. I used to be able to see the collection and play via MBC, although I must confess I'm not sure when this changed. Hopefully some pics will help ... Server Library Config Web Client Collection view Clicking on a trailer show this.. with no playable file The MB Theater Views of the same MBC EHS Screen Web Client home screen for sort order comparison, as you can see the Upcoming trailers collection is not even visible between Movies and TV Shows where its sort order should show. With the recent improvements to audio/subtitles playback in MBT, I'm really keen to start using this as my primary media client on my HTPC's but as we often 'surf' through upcoming trailers, this is proving annoying at present, having to open MBC just to do this. Have tried server restarts and rebuilding the db cache, but neither have made a difference I'm just wondering if I've missed a minimum file size setting, or whether something changed on the server side, that no longer allows this type of collection to work?? More Details Server Version 3.0.5171.19958 MB Classic -, MBC Themes tested - Chocolate and Subdued Look forward to any suggestions or confirmation of this being an issue. Regards Brainfryd
  19. Just looking for some suggestions on some "Collection" images I could use. I'm tired of looking at the blank squares in place of collection images in MBT. Something that would compliment MBT would be ideal for me, but really anything would do, instead of those blank boxes! What images are you guys/gals using? Thanks! Patrick
  20. Auto Box Sets Automatic Box Sets will create box sets (collections) for all the movies in your library that are associated with collections on TMDb. How it works Auto Box Sets works by creating new entities in your file system that are recognized by MB as box sets (also called collections in other products) and linking them to your actual movies using the new "Collections" facility built into the server. This will then create these box set entities for you in Media Browser and they can be accessed by any of the clients. These new collections will be created in the automatic "Collections" media folder visible from any client and editable from the metadata editor. The plug-in relies on the MB Server metadata fetching. It will only work fully if you have "Allow Internet Providers" turned on. Configuration The only configuration is to tell the plug-in how many of the containing movies must exist in your collection for it to automatically create that collection. The default is 2. This keeps you from having a bunch of collections with only one movie in them. When combined with the ability to automatically collapse your movies into collections (box sets) in the client apps, this should give you a very hands-off way to see all your content organized into collections. Troubleshooting The plug-in isn't creating any box sets Be sure the configured minimum number of movies is reasonable. Be sure your movies that should be in box sets contain the TMDb collection id The plug-in isn't creating some box sets that I think it should Be sure the movies in this collection have a TMDb collection id. Be sure you have at least the configured minimum number of movies in this collection within your library Some of my box sets are showing up twice If you manually created folders with the old [boxset] tag or with collection.xml files in them then you need to remove these. This plug-in is designed to automatically generate these folders for your entire library. You don't need the manual ones anymore. If you want custom collections, you can use the server's facility to create them now. I am seeing a box set called "MB Auto Set" in my library Confirm the metadata for the movies that are showing in this set have a valid TMDb collection id. TMDb recently removed a lot of box sets that existed on their site previously and, consequently, there are a lot of items that may now have invalid ids associated with them. Delete the invalid TMDb collection Id from these movies and then re-run the box set creation using the button on the config page.
  21. In MB2 I had multiple media collections pointing to the same media location because I wanted my Movie in two different Media Collection in MB, one sorted by date added and the other sorted by Movie Name. MB3 will not allow me to do this...I assume by design. I tried to search to see if anyone else mentioned this, but could not get a hit. Is this correct? If so, is there a way for me to have what I am after? Kind of nice to just click into a view...rather than have to navigate up and change the sort order of a given view. Thanks.

    Nested Collections and CoverArt

    I have been using MB2 for a long time and just now found the time to convert over to MB3. With just over 1500 movies, it was not a task I was looking for too...but I must say the conversion was painless. Along with this, I have decided to take the time to update all the artwork, covers, etc. for all my media (was still using stark covers). I have reverted all my covers back to original .jpg's and now use CoverArt for everything. In particular, for Collections (and boxsets) I use the "fan" treatment. One question I have is: What is the difference between a collection and boxset? The issue I am having is with "nested collections". What I mean by this is have a few collections that I have nested inside collections. For example, I have a Batman Collection (with a collection.xml and accompanying folder.jpg and backdrop.jpg). Inside that I have Batman Anthology Collection and The Dark Knight Collection (each with corresponding xml's, jpg's, etc.). Then inside those I have the actual movie folders. The issue is that CoverArt dresses the Batman Anthology and Dark Knight Collections correctly (as a fan)...but the parent Collection (Batman Collection) gets a clearcase treatment (with the blu-ray spine). I do not have that treatment selected anywhere in the CoverArt settings. My guess is that it does not recognize the nested folders correctly...but maybe there is a setting somewhere that I am missing? Here's what the folder structure looks like. The "Batman Collection" level does not get the "fan" treatment...the ones below that do. Thanks.
  23. Hi, after the last server update I can not see my metadata anymore, only "chapters" to each movie. The movie counter showed around 370 now it showing 766 :S I've added a picture to describe my problem better. (attached file) *** This happens in MBT and Web ***** Also, if I go to "collection" and choose ex "blu-ray" then all the movies are shown properly. What is wrong? **EDIT** Okey, it's looks like it something to do with the way the server handles naming. MBT should ignore the "#". MBC is working fine, and so is the WEB-version if I choose a letter from A-Z and not the first "#". (as shown in the picture) MBT is showing all the movies correctly, but i need to scroll trough all the "chapters first" before it finds the movies from A-Z. I think this is the problem, and it is now more related to MBT.

    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.
