  1. Sorry i know this has been answered before. I searched the forums and found users with the same problem, but i dont know if i should bring back an old post or make a new one. Same problem: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/43502-emby-generating-artistnfo-on-emby-servermetadataartists-instead-of-artist-folder-and-not-fetching-artist-bio/ Artists/albuns added some time ago are good, every .nfo is in the correct folder and everything is ok for these in the metadata manager and music catalog. For recent added artists emby generates an artist.nfo under \Emby-Server\metadata\artists and the genre tag is missing when i check in the metadata manager. This is anoying specially when browsing a genre, these newly added artist wont show up. The option 'Save artwork and metadata into media folders' is ticked. When i move the .nfo manually to the artist folder seems to work, the artists pop under the genre in the music catalog. Im using version Thanks in advance
  2. I'd really like to see an option to use the modification time stamp over the creation time stamp, when evaluating the date added. At lease for music files. See also this discussions: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/39666-latest-media-sort/page-1 https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/26485-file-created-date-vs-file-modified-date/
  3. i setup Emby with defaults, and according to the Wiki, to store metadata on the (fast SSD) applications drive, not the RAID media drive. (This is also general consensus I've seen at AVS.) “Installation · MediaBrowser/Wiki Wiki · GitHub” https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/Installation But I've seen recommendations here to store metadata and artwork in the media folders. What's the current thinking? If it's better to store with the media folders, can this be made the installation default? And the Wiki updated accordingly? And a handy new feature would be to migrate metadata and art to media folders if the server setting is changed. This would accommodate those of us wanting to move to the newly recommended setup (assuming it is).
  4. When I add new content to my music library and scan, it seems album fanart (cdart.png and sometimes folder.jpg) gets downloaded instantly, as it shows up in the corresponding album library folder with no additional action on my part. Artist fanart does not seem to work the same way, as nothing is downloaded to the user-set metadata folder after the library scan. However, once I go into the web player and select an artist, all relevant artwork is downloaded to the metadata folder. Usually I see the banner, folder, and logo pop up right away, and then the extrafanart folder gradually fills up with images (I set the limit pretty high, so this part often takes a while). Is my best bet to just select each artist in the web player one by one, and wait for all images to download, after my full library completes scanning? Or is there some setting to initiate the artist fanart downloads automatically?

    TV show identify/metadata trouble

    I have trying to add a folder (set as media type TV) containing a TV series to Emby library, but am having some trouble getting it to identify the series and its episodes and pulling the meta data. I have done a few other series and the "Identify" feature worked fine, however, that option is not showing up when i add this folder. The episodes will only show under the " Latest" tab and does not populate any of the shows info or structure like it has with other series. When i go in to metadata manager and select the folder level, the External IDs section has no options to add anything. Each ep file does heve those fields open, and i paste the IMDB and/or TVdb ids int ot them, but nothing else changes? Am i doing something wrong? IMDB id: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3793630/ TVdb: http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=282756&lid=7
  6. Hello everyone. I'm running the latest Emby Server ( on a Windows 10 tower, and everything has been working great for a long time, but I am now seeing a familiar issue with the Metadata Manager. The "Short Overview" section is gone. I can add, delete, or edit the "Overview" section just fine, but there is no "Short Overview" section at all. I have a screen shot attached, FYI. I tried to "edit info" on several movies through the library, but the same issue was there as well. I've re-scanned the library, cleaned the db, restarted the server, even re-booted the computer, but the section remains AWOL. I have seen this before after a new release, but it usually goes away after the next patch release. Any thoughts?
  7. Hi guys, I've got an issue with my meta data. I've added a load of new TV shows and it is not pulling the images or making the screen grabs. The last time it happened it was an extension in chrome blocking the images from loading on the External ID's but I've checked them for all the TV shows i'm having issues with and they are all there. Take the screenshot I've attached for example it's done them for a couple but not all of them, some TV shows it's not done any for. Please help, I've also attached the LOG file in case anyone needs it to determine what is going wrong. Log.txt
  8. When one has Emby configured to store data in NFO files adjacent to their associated videos, and you then designate certain metadata fields to be "Locked" a XML field of <lockedfields> is added to the NFO file, containing a "|" delimited list of the metadata fields to be locked from editing. In my prior experiments I found that if I added this field to an existing NFO file (ie, one that Emby has already added data to) then Emby would read the NFO and lock the corresponding fields. I mistakenly thought then that I could add this XML field to my externally generated NFO files as part of my migration from a different media management system (my custom-built one). My hope was that Emby would take in the data from my NFO, and then subsequently lock the appropriate fields from further editing. However, <lockedfields> is being completely ignored on import, resulting in no fields being locked (though the other data, such as Tags, is correctly imported). The following is an example of the NFO file data that I'm generating: <movie><sorttitle>Voice Behind the Mouse</sorttitle><plot>Leonard Maltin interviews Wayne Allwine and Russi Taylor, the voice of Mickey and Minnie Mouse. They talk about the characteristics of Mickey and Minnie that they see in themselves. They compare how Mickey's voice changed over the years, even within Walt Disney's run of doing the voice. Allwine and Taylor consider how Walt would probably embrace new technologies of today. Allwine does most of the talking, sharing anecdotes and touching on a wide array of other subjects related to Disney animation. Taylor, his real life wife, recalls how she prepared for her Minnie audition. The feature includes some clips of "Runaway Brain", older shorts, "House of Mouse", and even the costumed Mickey Mouse at Disney's parks, as well. It's a great supplement - both very informative and entertaining.</plot><lockedfields>Overview|Tags</lockedfields><tag>Shorts</tag><tag>Disney</tag><tag>Mickey Mouse</tag><tag/></movie> http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0408316/ Please pardon the formatting -- it seemed best to present it exactly as I'm generating it from my other program. Thanks!

  9. EDIT: Initial title: "BUG: metadata date wrong if imdb release date is 1/1/nnnn" Changing due to bug applying to all movies, the date is a day out for all of them. Original Post. -------------- I've just noticed with a couple of films, old ones, that emby gets the year and date wrong is themoviedb's entry lists the release date as the 1st of January of that year, showing the 31st of December the year before instead. I'm guessing the exact release date wasn't known perhaps, for the old film, so 1/1 is entered... What i see (e.g. a 1977 movie): TheMovieDB's website lists Release Date (for an example) as 1977 Emby's page for the movie shows 1976 [wrong] Emby's metadata page shows Release Date as 31/12/1976 [wrong] Emby's metadata page shows Year as 1977 [correct] If i delete the metadata Release Date and refresh the movie in emby, then: Emby's page for the movie shows 1977 [correct] Emby's metadata page shows Release Date as 31/12/1976 [wrong] Emby's metadata page shows Year as 1977 [correct] So the refresh makes the movie look correct, unless you actually look at the metadata/info page. Is this some weird timezone error??? Tmdb's release date entry was for Israel, i'm in Indonesia... It's the only thing i can think off... but it shouldn't cause this, should it??? ... Strange.
  10. I have been using Emby/MB on FreeBSD for several years without any issues, but after upgrading to 3.2.4 it crashes every time I enter itemdetails.html for a new movie or TV show. When the process crashes, the primary cover image turns into a "broken image" icon on the client (using Google Chrome), whereas the rest of the images (season covers etc.) simply remain empty. After restarting Emby and reloading the page, all the images are there. It was working fine in 3.1.2. I skipped a couple of versions and went directly to 3.2.4, so I'm not sure which version introduced the issue. The mono process silently dies, and even with debug logging activated, nothing interesting seems to get written to the log file (server-X.txt): 2017-02-26 19:17:56.9407 Info HttpServer: HTTP GET http://moviebox:8096/emby/Users/44ce6b51025040a9990b93886f430537/Items/a2418600ad112d4aca7bb734166c02ef.

  11. Somewhat related to the Bulk Edit of Metadata feature request ( https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/42975-bulk-edit-metadata/ ), I'd love to be able to specify a different Metadata Provider on a per-metadata basis. My desire for this comes from learning of the tradeoffs between the two main providers, OMDB and TMDB, as talked about in this thread ( https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/43818-three-genre-limit/&do=findComment&comment=409723 ), which indicates that OMDB tends to have user-preferred Ratings data, while TMDB tends to provide more Genres (OMDB apparently just provides the first 3). So, it would be nifty if I could set my default Metadata Provider as OMDB, but override that to be TMDB for something Genres (or any other piece of metadata). Then I'd get the best of both worlds. Edit: Wanted to clarify that upon further investigation it seems it isn't clear cut which provider lists more Genres. OMDB seems to cap it a 3, but that doesn't guarantee that other providers will actually have more Genres listed. I still think this Feature Request has merit (as the Genre thing was just an example), but wanted to clarify my misinformation from above.

    Collections metadata

    I have an issue where certain movies are not adding to a collection as movies but as other items. I have tried removing these collections and letting the server scan them in again but they scan back in the same. Some movies even have TheMovieDB Collection Id but still have the same issue. I have attached the collection xml file for one of the problematic collections.
  13. Morning peeps How can you force the server to download/refresh all metadata for ever entry in the library these days. I know there used to be a task, that is no more
  14. Through a series of unfortunate errors I've ended up with all of my movies not having any metadata. I can go to each one and manually refresh the metadata and it shows up just fine. This will be very time consuming. Is there a way to force a refresh of my entire collection? Or should I just uninstall and reinstall Emby?

    New Plugin: TV Maze Metadata Provider

    Hi, this is a new metadata provider plugin for Emby, supporting TV Series, Seasons and Episodes as well as Season-Images. The data is retrieved from http://www.tvmaze.com/ The plugin should operate pretty stable, I've been running the code for a few months now without problems. But what's the benefit, now? Well, you got to make your own decision about how useful that additional data could be for you! Metadata handling in Emby is not a very transparent process. To compare the different metadata retrieved by the installed providers, it's probably best to use the Metadata Viewer Plugin (http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/32984-new-plugin-metadata-viewer/). After installing, you need to check your metadata settings for Series, Seasons and Episodes. You should choose the priorities based on your experience from comparing metadata results as described in the previous paragraph. If you're already satisfied with your current metadata retrieval or just don't want to make a significant change at this time, I recommend the following: Disable TV Maze for Series and Episodes (Emby already comes with 3 built-in providers for those) But enable TV Maze for Seasons (and Season images): The reason: Currently, there's only one provider for Season data and there are many cases where TV Maze has some season descriptions when the other (MovieDb) doesn't Download: https://github.com/softworkz/Emby.Plugins/releases/tag/TvMazeBeta1

    Multiple versions of films

    Hi I have had a quick search hopefully no one hasn't asked this. I have a number of 3d and non 3d films. To identify them I change their title adding "3d" to the end and put them in a genre called "3d", after this i block the server from updating these aspects. I would love to see the functionality that enables these films to be displayed as one in the library and then you are asked which version you would like to watch. Is this possible at the moment or if not can I make this a feature request? Thanks
  17. Long-ish question, *hopefully* easy answer: I recently upgraded from several external hard drives to a QNAP NAS. After testing the QNAP Emby app server performance, I preferred the old Windows-based server overall and thus the new QNAP is purely operating as the NAS, not the server (hence this forum). That being said... Similar to a question I had awhile back here, after changing my library media folders to the new NAS folders, I am again having difficulty saving metadata into local media folders (rather than in a generic "metadata" folder in the server files). When I add new content, the metadata is successfully being saved somewhere else (unknown location, log attached, tried to refresh "The Accountant" movie metadata). Not only do I instead want the metadata saved in the media folders, but wherever it's actually being saved is seemingly eating up scarce storage on my OS/server hard drive (small SSD). According to QNAP, I have enabled permissions for 'everyone' (see attached Capture #1) for my media content. Windows, however, is much more challenging as to confirming these network folder permissions. Unlike when using my external hard drives and simply assigning 'everyone' full R/W permissions through Windows Explorer and then applying these changes, Windows won't let me change these same settings for the QNAP folders, apparently giving full deference to QNAP's security settings and not allowing me to make any changes within Windows; I have navigated everywhere in the Windows folder permission settings and any changes I try simply won't stick, instead reverting to QNAP's overriding "special permissions" (see Capture #2). How do I get metadata to save directly in the media folders of the NAS? Thanks in advance for any input! server-63624863086.txt
  18. i recently just joined tried this emby to see if tis better than plex media server. So far i love how it has everything organized but the only thing that is not working properly is the metadata and cover art. Every time i load a new media library i have to manually load the information for it to find the data. is there a simpler way to have the library automatically do it itself. Ive have also downloaded the plugins (cover art 4.0, anime and trailer)Can someone tell how to fix this problem or how to update my library to do it for me (step by step please im not computer savy! lol) Thank you in advance.
  19. Solution: Grab from plugin catalog, since the latest changes have been published. The plugin does not automatically identify any series. The plugin successfully fetches the animetitles.xml, and the anime-list.xml, and also fetches the series from anidb.net and places it into the cache/anidb/series/{aid} folder on scan/identify by name/aid. However it never identifies the series! 1. Create folder called "Strike the Blood" 2. Scan library 3. Check for "cache\anidb\series\9772" 4. Open the library and you will see it has not identified the series, but it has all the required information. 5. Manually identify with AniDB Id "9772" and you will get no results. (If you use the name to identify it the results are not for anidb and you will not have an anidb.net source under the name) Note: If you identify by name/aid the aid will get fetched and placed into the cache/anidb/series/{aid} folder but it will not be in the identify results. Other Issue: The plugin is not listed under my plugins where you could configure it in like MB2. Create any series from http://anidb.net/api/animetitles.xml and try for yourself. Emby Version - Windows & FreeBSD Tested Line 51: it could be trying to read animetitles.xml/titles.xml but im not sure. Line 642, 964, 1001: Automatic identification of the series "Danganronpa" Failed Line 1042, 1083: Automatic identification of the series "gargantia" Failed Line 1125, 1166: Automatic identification of the series "hal" Failed ... more series tests in other logs 03-01-2017_EmbyAnimeError.txt
  20. I really like to see some user options that give more control about what people metadata gets downloaded: Some checkboxes what people to download - actors, directors, producers, writers, guest stars, componists. And very important, only one user definable value that limits the number of people per type that can be downloaded. Some movies have 50 or more actors listed at TheMovieDB, but nobody knows them and will never know. And this gets worse and worse!

    Metadata is back dating

    Hi there, I have been having an issue with the release date. It is knocking off 1 day from every video I have manually corrected and locked the file also. I even went as far as deleting my entire library to see if this is the issue. Nope. Example 11-22-2016 become 11-21-2016
  22. Hello all, I'm new to Emby and to the forums. I hope that I'm posting in the correct section (^ ^) -------- I've searched hours for a solution to the issue I'm having but reached nowhere. The problem: My naming convention is slightly different than what Emby requires and I get Season Unknown for maybe hundred of shows. However, my naming convention aligns with Kodi, and Plex and I have my library organized well in there. But I want to drop Plex for Emby so I'm looking for a solution. Solution that came to mind but failed: So I thought perhaps importing my Kodi Library along with metadata or anything would solve this issue. Yet, all I could find after looking into this is that it's possible for Emby to import its Library to Kodi but not the opposite. Therefore, I'm wondering if it's possible to export my Kodi library and then import it into Emby, so Emby is then able to recognize the shows and sync with trakt and so on. Thank you!

    Metadata setting changed?

    Hi, Have the settings on where to store metadata changed by default? I noticed that a recent series I added didnt have any metadata stored in the season folder, yet metadata and images for yhe season were still being displayed. Having checked the setting in Library->(mediatype)->"Save artwork and metadata into media folders" I found it was unticked for all media types. I have never unticked this, all my other media has the data stored in the media folders but the new ones I have put on dont. I have remidied this by ticking the box then going into metadata manager and refreshing at the show level and the data and artwork has shown up in the media folder but I was just wondering if this would have changed in a recent update? Thanks Techie

    Editing Collections

    Hello, first I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season! I just have a quick question for everyone. There used to be a quick and easy way to add and remove items from collections in the metadata editor. I was wondering why it was removed. It made it so easy to add and remove items from collections. Using the search function was awesome. Now that I am doing manually it is taking for ever. I know there is an "auto collections plugin" which I've used before, but it keeps adding collections I don't want or adding items to collections I don't want. Is there a chance the metadata editor search function for collections might return? Thanks for the help.

    Emby Sever metadata

    Hi Guys, Few question i have about the Emby server setup i have searched the forums for and cant find a definitive answer and was wondering if you guys can lead me in the correct path. Does moving the metadata location to folders have a performance hit? the reason i am asking is i copy movies to my hard drive for the shack that has no internet so just need the metadata etc. If so, does it populate actor images as well into each folder, assuming yes you will end up with 200 of the rocks face. on the above two questions does Emby still use the central cache folder in the c:\users\app... as thats on a SSD and assume would make it all run faster if it used that copy. All going well all my collections are setup as e:\tv1 d:\tv2 etc even with follow control of the folders of the local user emby wont write the metadata to them, do they need to be shared as \\tv1 \\tv2 for this function to work. thanks for looking over this Cheers R
