  1. I don't know if this is already possible, but if it is, I'd love it if someone could explain Alright, I've got a computer hooked up to a television screen, I use that to watch my media. However, late at night, I have to turn it down so I don't wake my family. I thought that it'd be a cool feature to be able to plug headphones into my phone, which I usually use to remote control the playback, and hear the sound, allowing me to mute the television, but hear through my headphones. Hopefully you understand what I mean by this, and thanks for your time!
  2. Hi, I think it would be really nice to have a hard drive size, space available, space used dialog in the emby Dashboard. Thanks!
  3. Before coming over to Emby / Media Browser I used XBMC. I had my TV Series folder structure like the following TV Series - Airing TV Series - Concluded I then told XBMC to not refresh the data in the TV Series - Concluded folder (Excluded from libary updates). Once a TV series had finished Airing I manually moved it's folder over. This cut my library scans down dramatically and ensured nothing changed with that media. It would be great if there was some way to mark a TV series as concluded in Emby, either manually with a button or automatically with a web lookup. These TV Series would then be excluded from the updated libary scans. We could even have a manual Scan / Update button for when required.
  4. Hi People, First off, Happy New Year to you all! I have a question regarding duplicate movies. When I get my movies I sometimes get early 'CAM' or 'Screener' releases but then download the HD version as soon as it's available, i've been doing this for numerous years but forgot to delete the crappy copies once I've downloaded the HD versions. Now, in my movies folder, I have hundreds of duplicate movie files. So my question to you guys is as follows: Is there any sort of free program (where I can download and use instead of downloading, scanning and then having to pay) to find these duplicate low resolution films?I simply don't have the time to invest sitting there for hours and going through them manually, I would much prefer to just do a scan and then be able to delete the lower resolution finds. Now I've downloaded a few programs (DupeTrooper, easy duplicate finder to name some) and I've scanned my movies folder but these programs are picking up the images as well e.g. If I have say Independence day then these programs are finding 'Independence day-Disc' & 'Independence day-Cover'. I really want a program that can scan for just Movie file types or have that in the options so that it doesn't pick up my images. Thanks for reading, Looking forward to your replies! KayJay
  5. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/84611964/OrderBackdrops.cmd Requires mediainfo and imagemagick command line utilities Background I wanted to keep my backdrops clean of mixed resolution, non contiguous naming, and duplicate images, The script uses imagemagick to yield a comparison value to identify duplicates. Install Download mediainfo and imagemagick clis, Extract to folders of choice Download CMD file above and copy to shell:sendto edit CMD with paths to mediainfo and imagemagick and turn on/off log only Functions For each folder in path, re cursing subfolders) If low res images exist AND 1+ high res then delete low res images If duplicates exists delete duplicates rename backdrops into order - backdrop.jpg, backdrop1.jpg, backdrop2.jpg, etc creates a processed.txt in every processed folder, in case needs to be rerun...they can be easily deleted once happy Usage Test 1st before using on real folders Right click a folder eg. movie and send to the script, each separate folder is enumerated separately The threshold value should be increased/decreased if duplicates are not being detected/uniques being detected as duplicates. use imagemagick\compare -metric NCC backdrop1.jpg backdrop2.jpg null: manually from the command line to find a threshold value for comparison for use in your script Notes Backdrop order is not well respected, backdrop.jpg (the first one) shouldn't be deleted, unless it is a low res image amongst 1 or more high res images..Backdrop 11 will be ordered higher than Backdrop 2 due to batch order. As with all my scripts its very crude, im guessing as i go along. The Comparison function of image magic, could be improved upon, there may be quicker more appropriate functions and the use of a threshold could break out of comparison once its known to be different enough (for performance considerations) Temporary files could be used to compare different resolution images, but that would take even longer and would require more understanding of imag magick comparison than i have. if i could get the comparison value out of image magic without using a file, it would be more media browser change detection friendly. have tried to use identity function to compute a quick hash to weed out 100% identity quickly, however the duplicates in practise are too nuanced for this function to yield match. advice as always welcomed... The NCC comparison can deal with different jpg quality factors, but cant detect identity where there is a slight offset between the two images, or if one image is a subimage of another (would be too computationally intensive, besides the script is looking for more identical ness that that..eg same image on fanart and tmdb.. edit fixed crash when_result was not defined
  6. 3.0.5526.29593 Similar to http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/8745-artist-listed-twice-in-album-artist-folder/?hl=duplicate In a similar way as to how it is impossible to identify incorrect similar artist ID3 tags from within MBS.... due to MBS Person and Artist views showing the Artist/Person names as matched rather than as is.... and the content against the Matched Person/Artist rather than Person/Artist as is... People Views also exhibit this problematic symptom..eg abby eliott The two source entities which created these two objects are 'Abby Elliot' and 'Abby Elliott'... in this case the 2nd 'incorrect' person object 'Abby Elliot' came from a gueststars tag on a series.xml.... Unfortunately it is impossible to use MBS to find the offending tag/source object and correct... because 1. The person/artist object is shown as matched rather than as is...so searching for the incorrect value outside MBS is obfuscated..(although looking at the IBN entry/path can help) 2. clicking on both person objects in UI shows content for the same matched person on the fetcher...NOT...the content which precipitated the object. Clicking one of the objects..the object for 'Abby Elliott' should show 3 episodes of HIMYM where the actor is defined...and it does... Clicking on the other object ..the object for 'Abby Elliot' (also shown as 'Abby Elliott') should show 1 Series of HIMYM where the actor is defined. but it doesnt... its shows the previous / same as above... Another example..i have 3 "Weird Al" Yankovic..s clicking on each one yields the following unique URLS http://localhost:8096/web/itembynamedetails.html?id=12980317ee5e2d0a0858a58977ff5620&context=tv&topParentId=f0a9d2c6947d6c6defaa52c7af70e0b8 http://localhost:8096/web/itembynamedetails.html?id=f6a10a3fe8863fc089849e76375dbd52&context=tv&topParentId=f0a9d2c6947d6c6defaa52c7af70e0b8 http://localhost:8096/web/itembynamedetails.html?id=f3ac96f426691445d1ffd6c74a616c11&context=tv&topParentId=f0a9d2c6947d6c6defaa52c7af70e0b8 but they all show the same content...the same movie 'the naked gun'.. The feature request is.... to name the Artist/Person objects in their respective views, as is not as matched... to not hide the content from the user which precipitated the object in the view..eg (the tags on) the tracks which precipitated the artist or e.g. the TVDB actor metadata which precipitated the person. or better yet...in this example There should be two person objects, one Abby Elliot - Identified and Matched (because it does) - showing content for 'Abby Elliott' and the other Abby Elliot - Not identified or Matched (because it doesn't) - Show content for 'Abby Elliot' Then when the duplicate/incorrect entry is identified...it would be obvious why..and the correction simple... thanks for considering..
  7. Hi everyone. I am having a issue where some shows seasons duplicate them selves in the web client view I have tired manually scanning the library, restarting the server, clearing the cache, using a different computer but nothing has worked so far. This is what i'm seeing on the web client. And in the meta data viewer. The duplicated seasons media info looks like this, everything blank apart from season name, path and date added: All my shows follow the same folder structure and naming convention Example: Does anyone have any ideas on what could be going on? Thanks

    Cinema Trailers

    Would be great if MB3 could provide a way to watch a specified number of random trailers prior to watching a Movie to create a sort of Cinema experience. In XBMC there is a plugin known as Cinema Experience that takes it to a high level of customisation: http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Add-on:Cinema_Experience It also seems Plex has just added this as a cool feature (along with automatic support for extras): https://blog.plex.tv/

    SR: View Only User

    I have alot of friends that don't want to watch my media just look through it and see what I have and I was wondering if there was a way we could create a new 'User' that was for looking only not for watching?
  10. I think (think being the key word) an easy addition that some could find useful would be the ability to send messages from the server to frontend or frontend to frontend. This could be used to signal updates, fun messages, signal restarts ect.
  11. It would be great to have different security depending if you are connecting from within the network or outside the network. For example I don't want to use passwords for my kids accounts (or basic short ones) when connecting in the houses but I don't want to leave the profiles un protected when connecting from outside.

    Missing episodes

    Is it possible to search for/identify missing episodes so it's possible to track them down? (I am not sure what subcategory this is, applies to all viewers? i personally would appreciate it added to the web interface for library management.)
  13. I'd like to request an option to allow videos to keep playing one after another rather than stopping after each video. I want to select the first video and then have it keep playing until the last episode in the season or folder because i may have already watched the previous episodes. Thanks for your consideration!
  14. I'd like to be able to download a local copy to whatever client I'm using. For example, I'm browsing my collection on my Win 8 client, on my surface. I'm headed on vacation and want to take a movie with me. I want to be able to copy the movie to my surface using the Media Browser Client.
  15. Being from the UK we say "The 20th of March" and not "March 20th" so when looking at dates on the web console it is odd to see them in US format. Could the dates not be displayed in a localised format, take what is setup from either the servers regional settings or the clients.
  16. Hi I use MBC and the Chocolate theme. This theme does just about everything I need. One tiny item I miss is the ability on the main movie menu (by that I mean the one with the play button) I would like to be able to click on the director's name and list all films by that Director, the same way I can go into the cast menu and select an Actor and it displays all the films in my collection that they appear in. Could this be considered as a feature request please?
  17. Suggesting a Feature Request for ability to search my list of movies by movie format type: DVD or BluRay. I have my movies separated into different folders but have all movies show up altogether. Sometimes I feel like just watch one o m BluRay and would like to see just a list of them.
  18. Hi, I wanted to ask if it is possible to show also German ratings in detail view? US ratings are shown, but e.g. "DE-FSK12+" is not shown. I can see German ratings in the web interface. Would be great when this could be done. Thanks!
  19. I mainly use the Crystal theme but this is probably theme independent. Currently the available views in the season screen are missing one where I can make a quick selection from just a list of episodes. Scrolling through a long series of posters or covers is not optimal for TV episodes. I'd love to see a view that lists a season's episodes by name, where the currently highlighted episode's thumbnail and synopsis are shown adjacent to the list. The list should be navigable and scrollable so an episode can be selected and played by hitting "play" on the remote. Even better, indicate watched status using a little icon or by different text color. Am I making sense? I'd make a screen mockup if I was a better artist... Thanks
  20. I have had certain movies have trouble finding the correct movie information, in this case the option to input a different ID is available. Though if the MB server is have a difficult time finding the information, there is no option under "External IDs" to manually set the id. Could this be changed? Maybe even have an option, similar to Plex Media Server, where it while list many different IDs with the titles and movie cover, you can then pick the one you want.

    "AirPlay" type implementation

    First off, I'd just like to say thank you for all of the incredible work you guys have done. I have been using media browser since version 2.0, and MB3 is just fantastic. I will be contributing shortly. The iOS app is great, and I've thoroughly enjoyed using it on my iPhone 4s. The remote control functionality is useful for scrubbing through movies and TV shows quickly. I have noticed that browsing a large media library on my phone is much faster than using a remote and MBC/MBT. I think it would be great if I could browse to a video on my phone and then tell it to play in MBC instead of my phone, much like the way airplay works. I would assume both devices would need to have the same user logged in. So the "workflow" would be like this: Start MBC/MBT Open app on my phone Browse to a movie Hit "Play on device" and select my MBC/MBT session The video would automatically start playing in MBC/MBT Thanks again for all your hard work, Charlie
  22. It think it would be a good idea to have a minimum of detail on what part of the scanning it's doing in the MB server dashboard during library scans: Like, par example, which collection it is scanning, etc... I don't like being in the dark in this process
  23. WTF is the feature request forum? This one is so obvious I can't believe it isn't already a part of media browser: make file/folder name text in brackets visible to Media Browser for the purposes of sorting. This way, we can just tell MB to sort alphabetically and F-O-R-C-E MB to sort and display folders and files in the order we want, but the text still won't show up in the MB interface.
  24. Can you please add the feature to allow the same folder path to be added to different Media collections eg: I have a media collection "TV series Continuing" for all the TV series that have not ended screening and I also have Series folder for all the rest, I would also like to add the "TV Series Continuing" to the "Series" Media collection but I get the error : The path \\server\tvseriescontinuing already exist in the library.
