    CoverArt treatment problem

    Hello, I have spent several hours scratching my head with this one... My library is showing TV series is set to use the 'Case' treatment. However, it is showing TV SERIES in the actual treatment, instead of DVD or codec, like I thought was supposed to happen. I have even tried setting a custom treatment to show DVD as DVD and also, MPEG as DVD. This is not happening. Am I missing something? I have gone through the CoverArt walkthrough several times, and am officially stumped. Any suggestions?
  2. Hello, I was wondering if the directory structure of the metadata could be modified. Instead of randomly generating directories in the metadata directory, have a single directory for each movie or tv series labelled by the name of the movie or tv series. This would help easily identify what the given metadata is for, and also enable Media Center Master to be able to download to the proper location, instead of in the directory the actual media is stored.

    DVD MediaInfo

    Hello, I would like to know how I can get TV series ripped from DVD's to show the DVD MediaInfo icon on the cover treatment. Filenames are in the following format Frasier.S07E21.MPG-AC3.DVD-576p.mkv

    MeteData Format Changed When?

    Can anyone tell me when the format of the series.xml, movie.xml changed? I recently found that these xml's that were created by MetaBrowser are formatted differently than those saved via the Emby MetaData application.

    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?
  6. Hi there so I am currently experiencing some bugs with the collections feature. Firstly if I make a collection and go to remove under the metadata manager > collections > titles > remove button it says 'No collection exists with the supplied ID". Secondly, in order to actually view the list of collections I have I need to click on a collection and click Titles then click back onto the main collections metadata option and then it will show the Titles option. Otherwise if I just click on Collections without clicking on Titles first it only shows Metadata and Images as the 2 tabs. Media Browser Server Version 3.0.5607.2 --- On a side note any idea where I might find the auto-generated thumb image used in collections on my computer so I can also use it for my backdrop image? server-63567134479.txt
  7. Ok, so it's here, being able to take your media offline. With the new beta, you can select videos (be they movies, episodes, your own videos), music, or even just whole tv shows, the server will convert them (if required) and get them transferred to your device. You can also create sync jobs for other clients (say you have 7's app and want to get something ready to be put on there), as well as manage your own sync jobs. Managing other client's sync jobs will come further down the line. At the moment, you still need to be online in order to get to the items, even if they have been synced to your device. I'm working on full offline at the moment, but I was keen to get this in your hands to get some early feedback. The only major known issue with this release is if you start playing an offline video, and then stop watching it, you will be unable to play it again (be it from the beginning or resuming) until you restart the app. This little gotcha is what has delayed me releasing this to you guys initially (now I just want some feedback regardless of this bug). Also in this release, the main page now shows you any resumable items you may have. Do I need to mention the app no longer mentions Media Browser? You noticed that already, right? If you spot anywhere that mentions Media Browser, MediaBrowser or MB, please let me know (although I'm pretty sure I got everything).
  8. Windows Emby Server version: Version 3.0.5607.0 After doing a report on movies with 'Missing Overview' - I have noticed a lot of movies that previously had complete metadata, are now unidentified. Double checked the filesystem and have discovered hundreds of movies now with 0kb movie.xml files. Since manually running 'Identify' on the affected media, some are saving, however a lot are not. In the server log I am noticing a lot of errors like below: 2015-05-09 13:04:32.8221 Error - App: Error in Emby Xml *** Error Report *** Version: 3.0.5597.1 ... Root element is missing. Server log is here Any ideas on why this is happening would be fantastic, TIA

    MetaBrowser & 3D Format Metadata

    Can anyone tell me if the "3D Format" metadata field in the MetaData-Manager is the equivalent to MetaBrowser's "3D Format" field? I am trying to update all of my 3D Movies to the correct "3D Format" using MetaBrowser but the changes are not showing up when I look in the MetaData-Manager. Also, when I make the change in the MetaData-Manager, it is not changed in MetaBrowser or the movie.xml file. Thanks!
  10. Hi there, Like many other users (probably) I have a huge music collection and growing. I use emby for this more than anything. I would love to see individual songs (repeats) grouped by Artist, Title. The reason for this is mainly for likes, favorites, playcounts etc. Also if I filter down or am in a playlist and I have added a song that is a low bitrate maybe the system could recognize this and automatically substitute it for a higher bitrate or album version of the same song. And when on the web client when I drill down to song level it will tell me what albums or playlists the song is in and even link to a music video. Also can we have play counts back? I will donate £20 for this feature, and £20 for the next etc. Emby is the cornerstone of my life and I love it so.

    Missing Metadata

    I am currently running the latest Beta Server and I have noticed in the last 3-4 weeks that if I replace a file with a better quality file (720p with a 1080p version) with the same name, that the Season, Series Number and Overview are now blank. They are still in the filename but in the Metadata they are missing. Also when I try a refresh nothing happens. Anyone else seeing this issue?
  12. Hi, I'm currently using Emby 3.0.5582.4 running on Windows 8.1. I guess there is a problem with reading information from nfo file in metadata manager. - plot is read from nfo and stored in metadata Manager - that's fine - tag <type> ("Treat Image as:") is ignored, but written when I save it via metadata manager. After scann of library all cover arts are showing h264 instead of DVD / BD. This worked in a version before 3.0.5571. Below you find an example of nfo file. <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?> <movie> <plot>Amerikas stärkste Geheimwaffe gegen das Verbrechen ist wieder im Einsatz: Sensationelle Actionszenen und unschlagbarer Humor – Vollgas mit Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu und dem “gefallenen Engel” Demi Moore – wieder unter der Regie von McG!

  13. Hi, can some one help me? - Is there a way to media browser to import the metadata from a ".xml", if so, how would it be? (I need this becouse I had organized my movie files to Media Browser 2.0 a long time (in 2011) ago and I'm from Brazil, so I need information in Portuguese, and I made all the work back then , to do all again will be a pain. - Another question, supose my movies are on the "C:\Movies\" Folder, but some time from now i cange it to "D:\Movies" or under an server, how can I mantain the same metadata's? I don't want to loose all the work. Thank you very much
  14. Running into an interesting problem: I want to change the images used for genres (using stills from movies that I actually own, instead of the generic art [because Eddie Murphy and a bad Dr. Seuss movie, ugh, but I digress]... I updated the images in the AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Server\metadata\Genre folders, copied the images (just to be sure) to the AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Server\ImagesByName\Genre folders (even going as far as adding a copy of "poster.jpg" and naming it "folder.jpg"), but to no avail. The Web Client displays the added/changed images as expected, but the Classic interface in WMC stubbornly refuses to display the new images. I updated the Metadata through the web client, restarted the server (several times), re-scanned the library (several times), updated the library from within the WMC Classic interface... but I'm still not seeing the right images in WMC (see screenshot below, WMC/Classic in front of the web client view). The Mediabrowser-Classic folder contains no data, except for two config files in the Configurations subfolder. I could not find any other location to place the files. Using Emby Classic version and Emby Server version 3.0.5572.0, Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 Media Center. So, what's the trick to get this to work in Emby Classic? (And just to head off the obvious question: WMC/Emby Classic shows the exact same thing on the actual TV screen as it does in the RDP view, natch.)

    Metadata folder.jpg not movie cover

    I'm moving from meta browser to the inbuilt metadata but the folder.jpg which has traditionally been the DVD / BluRay cover is now showing as a scene screenshot. Is there a setting I can tweak somewhere?

    MP3s not being indexed

    Hi, guys. I’m having some trouble adding music folders to my media library. I’ve added the folders (selecting Music as the media type) to my library, but when I go to the music section on the client, it’s completely empty. I tried removing and re-adding the folders again in an attempt to get MB to try indexing them again, but that didn’t work. I do not organize my music in album and artist folders. I organize solely by genre on the file system, but I keep my ID3 metadata clean and populated. When I go to the metadata editor, I can select a song and have it manually retrieve info using the ID3 tag. That does index the file and allow me to see an artist and the song in the client’s music area. Unfortunately, I do not want to do this for the thousands of songs I have. I didn’t see anything unusual in the log, so I’m not sure what else to do at this point. Not one of my genre folders was able to be indexed. Suggestions? Thank you, Josh
  17. I've just noticed over the past few days, if I add a new show to my collection the not all of the images are automatically added. Series images seem to be ok, but specifically season posters aren't downloaded. If I go and manually browse for them, or even do an advanced refresh on the series metadata everything is properly added. MBS Version 3.0.5518.7
  18. Hope this is the correct area to post this. I was editing my music collection today and getting it a little bit more organized and I noticed some weird behavior when changing genres of tracks and albums. I typically use Mp3Tag to do any tag editing, then I refresh the library using the web interface in MediaBrowser (Version 3.0.5518.7). In order for all the tracks and the album itself to be properly marked with the right genre, I have to refresh the album twice or three times, depending on the level of the change. Steps to reproduce the error: 1. Change the genre on all the tracks in an album using Mp3Tag - All embedded tags are now up to date with what I want 2. Refresh Album within MediaBrowser 1st time. - All individual track metadata has correct genre in mediabrowser, the album does not. 3. Refresh Album within MediaBrowser 2nd time. - Album now has correct genre, everything is as I expect it to be. Similarly, if you change all the tracks under an artist with multiple albums to a different genre (as I did with Harry Chapin, from Ballad to Folk), you must refresh the Artist 3 times until the correct genres are applied at each level. I'm pretty sure I just didn't give it enough time to sort through the entire refresh process, so mark this as solved/not an issue.
  19. Is there a global advanced refresh option? I continuously lose metadata option requiring me to manually do an advance refresh for each movie to reload the images. If there was a global command to do this automatically it would save me a lot of regular maintenance for keeping images stocked.
  20. I was wondering if it would be possible to add an entry point or category in the metadata editor for "Movie Set" or "Set" or something like that for the purpose of organizing movie collections into movie sets for Kodi. It would be useless for MB clients, and I don't want it if it caused any sort of issues with MB, but it's handy for telling Kodi to group movies into sets. I know Metabrowser had an entry point like this. That way, say for instance with the Bourne Collection, you could just type in Bourne Collection in the Set entry point in each of the Bourne movies, and Kodi would group them together. Ideally Kodi would recognize MB collections (and artwork selected etc..) but this would still help. edit: Thanks for moving this to feature request, EBR.

    Music Organization

    Hi, I love MB and use it daily for live TV and recording shows. I was hoping MB would also make using separate bubbleupnp/twonky music servers redundant. Unfortunately, that is not possible yet as MB lacks certain options (or maybe I am lacking understanding which is why I am posting). My current music collection is organized by genres. Each song also has a rating. I also use a media player ( WMP,winamp, Music Bee etc) to create a dynamic playlist based on ratings, recently played, and so on. These are my three main ways of finding and playing music. It seems with MB i can only use the genre category because MB doesn't see the rating tag and neither does it recognize playlists from other players. MB does have something called "favorites" for songs but I can't seem to figure out how to add or remove songs from that list. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Mark

    Not collecting all TVDB info

    Anyone else experiencing this. I get some of the metadata from TVDB however none of the overview, date aired being collected, this has only started with the new server. Has TVDB updated their api, i've checked that the info is available there, which it is, i've also added in the IMDB episode number, which makes no difference. I also deleted the episode xml and jpg from the metadata folder, did a scan library and the xml is populated again but still missing overview and some other key stuff. It simply wont scrape all of the info. This isn't isolated to just Arrow, it's also the same for other TV shows that were added arond a couple of weeks ago @@Luke here is the server log for you. And the current xml for Arrow - 3x12 - Uprising server-63560277534.txt Arrow - 3x12 - Uprising.xml
  23. A Suggestion on Cues and UI pertaining to Identification... It seems that Identification of albums is only performed once on initial ingestion....maybe thats the same for all media types? It seems If no ID (MBZ?) is attributed to the album during initial ingestion, then no amount of scans or refreshes, advanced or otherwise would ever check the ID is correct, or try to fetch a missing ID. If a primary ID provider is down during initial ingestion, doesn't the user need a way to bulk identify objects? If the user has gone to the trouble of clicking refresh ... would it not be good for MB3 to retry to retrieve a primary identification for objects that do not currently have one..in case the provider was down during initial ingestion (or some other issue)? might it not be good for the user to be able to ask that content already with ids is reevaluated..(because the current identification is known to be false or the providor has changed their ids)? might it not be good for the user to be able to check that IDs are correct (eg for when matching logic has improved or the provider has changed their master info), so that mismatched IDs are included in reports for manual correction when required? It was not obvious imo in the current interface that refreshes do not attempt primary identification... Would there be a downside to identification being part of the default refresh for objects without primary id? Could the other options be added to the advanced refresh ui? Perhaps MB3 could beef up the remedial UIs (perhaps accessible from the quick overview pane in dashboard ui) Red Exclamation (as is current) for not identified - launch UI to choose correct match (or allow manual/null/give up) - (Identification Results could be presented more clearly and searches could be more targeted when possible e.g.. include artist in album searches) Amber Exclamation - A (potential) mismatch, worthy of further investigation..the providers name for ID does not match the library's name, or The ID no longer exists on providor. For casual users for something as critical as identification, and fuller more accessible remedial interface to identify/correct the outlying cases would make the ui more informative and immersive imo.

    Scraping movies and TV

    Hi team, server version 3.0.5490.2 love the software. just reinstaled it after a new windows install and I cant get the scraper to get all the movies. most of the tv shows were successfully identified, but most movies were not. I've tried both the identify function, and dumping in the IMDB ID. either way, the loading wheel comes up, and nothing further happens. I've attached pictures. thanks for your help. caleb.

    Metadata Locks Being Reset

    Server version: 3.0.5490.2 I am going through my media collection to make sure everything has artwork and all available metadata. I have locks set at the top level "Movies" to lock Name, Overview, Genres, and People. I also set the same metadata locks set on the individual titles when I initially add them. However this morning I was going through older titles that I had when upgrading from MB2 and getting them fully populated when I noticed something potentially pretty bad (for my anal-retentive filing at least). I would select a title and set my locks under Metadata Settings for Name, Overview, Genres, and People then click "Save". When the "Item Saved." dialog went away I would go back up and click "Identify" and select the movie. All available information now populated, I click "Save" again. Now scroll down to Metadata Settings and all of the locks set have been reverted to "On". Is this as bad as it looks? When autotasks run for People and Library run, is it going to potentially mess up the data I set manually? If I set those locks at the top level, shouldn't that automatically pass down to the subfiles like it does if I were to click the check box for "Lock this item to prevent future changes"? Thanks!
