  1. Would it be possible to also download a copy of the Non-English speaking parts of a movie in addition to the entire subtitles? This would be very useful as some of my movies have foreign language in them but no subtitles and I do not want to have subtitles for the entire movie.
  2. Hello First of all, thank you for this awesome software!! The Samsung App is also very good already, albeit lacking in a few places (switching audiostreams doesn't work; it always uses the first available, although the UI is showing that it is using an alternate stream). Anyway, this problem is pertaining to the MediaBrowser server itself (Version 3.0.5395.0). It keeps resetting the language settings for an item after refreshing the data. This "101 Dalmatians" item is in Danish, but the original is obviously English. So I set the "Preferred download language" and "Country" settings to "Danish" and "Denmark" respectively. And refresh the item. As soon as the refresh is done, it has updated the data to the Danish descriptions and such (not the images, though)... ...but the language settings have been reset to <blank> Which means if I refresh it again, it resets all the data to the original language, unless I manually set the language settings again before refreshing. The folder "Animation - Dansk" has a number of items in it that are Danish (including "101 dalmatians"). If I set the metadata language settings on the folder itself and hit refresh, it removes the settings from the folder, and refreshes all the items inside it, also resetting all the metadata to the original language for all the items (probably just doing a normal refresh on them, giving the same result as posted above for each item). So, to make the items have their localized names and descriptions, I have to set the language settings manually for each one and refresh each one separately, at the peril of having to do it all again, should I accidentally refresh the folder later. I would LOVE to have the option to set metadata language settings for all the items in a folder! Right now all the items that have a sibling in English in another folder just appear twice under "Movies" with the same name, and I can't tell them apart. Speaking of this, I wouldn't be able to tell movies apart, if they are called the same in both English and Danish (like "Aladdin"). It would be very cool if we could somehow group several items of the same title, so when we click on it, we can select which language (file) we want to view. Just like you have now for different size rips and 3D versions (I haven't tested this feature yet, but I read about it). EDIT: Obviously I could "just" put the different audiostreams into the same file. This is easy for MKVs, but many of the items are AVIs and/or are recorded at different speeds, so the audiostreams don't match up. It would be a massive amount of work to make them work properly. And again, there's a problem switching audiostreams in the Samsung app, so this isn't a solution for me atm.
  3. Version 3.0.5404.29588 following on from http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/6333-artist-name-is-initials-issue/?p=88447 MB3 can not handle artists with ID3 tgs ending in full stop. eg 't.A.T.u.' 2014-10-19 15:20:01.2458 Info - ImageProcessor: Failed to read image header for E:\MediaBrowser\IBN\artists\t.A.T.u\folder.jpg. Doing it the slow way. 2014-10-19 15:20:01.2458 Error - App: Error getting image information for E:\MediaBrowser\IBN\artists\t.A.T.u\folder.jpg Could not find file 'E:\MediaBrowser\IBN\artists\t.A.T.u\folder.jpg'. System.IO.FileNotFoundException at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath) at System.IO.FileInfo.get_Length() at MediaBrowser.Api.Images.ImageService.GetImageInfo(IHasImages item, ItemImageInfo info, Nullable`1 imageIndex) Steps to reproduce. 1. Create W:\Music\t.A.T.u\[insert some album here] (no full stop at end because windows file system doesn't support) MB3 successfully identifies, album/artist and downloads metadata into media collection. 2. Go to metadata manager and change the primary image for the artist. Error as above.no folder.jpg in collection. It is odd that on first fetch MB3 handles the artist but cant handle manually fetching artwork from metadata manager.
  4. I just recently added American Horror Story to my library, everything seemed to fetch fine, but no tvshow.nfo file was saved into the series or season folders. (Version 3.0.5395.0 compatible mode for metadata) Appropriate .xml files are present, just no .nfo files are present. Everything appears fine for any MediaBrowser apps, but XBMC doesn't see the show. (I have it set on local info only, not using fetchers in XBMC) server-63548583207.zip
  5. I think its a bug, minor though. MB is pretty good at using the "folder.jpg" as the main image for an items thumbnail or poster. Occasionally I may have to manually edit that, especially if I changed the ingredients of a movies folder contents. This all works quite well, except for playlists. I would like to change the default image to something a little more meaningful. I go through the same process as I would for changing the image for any other media file. As you can see below, I've uploaded an image to represent this playlist and all looks and behaves as expected. However the image does not "stick", I still have the default image when I go back to the playlists page. This works just fine for everything else, just playlists are affected. Looks like a bug to me. Is anyone else getting this? Thanks!

    TV, questions, comments

    When browsing in the initial TV page, there is a header at the top of the screen with menu selections for " suggestions, latest, episodes, genre" etc. on my installation, when I'm perusing TV and I select "episodes" from the aforementioned menu, I end up getting ALL episodes from ALL shows being displayed. It's a bit of a cluster if you know what I mean. Not very helpful. Is there some way to get to get MB to display ONLY the episodes from the selection show? or even better a season from the show? Thanks

    Adult Video metadata

    It also might be broken with all the changes that were just done to the metadata providers. So it might need updating.

    Incorrect music metadata

    From where collects mbs metadata for music albums? The reason I ask is that the release date and year is wrong ... but on the http://musicbrainz.org/release/51ee119d-40b3-3b5e-b0a5-1a33ab051ef3, Release date and year the correct.

    Metadata Field Locking

    I thought I saw somewhere that if you lock a metadata field on the TV Show name level that all of the TV show's episodes would also be locked. Is this true? I just edited some M*A*S*H episode overviews and locked the entire M*A*S*H TV show's overview field (I am planning on redoing all of the overviews as they are all pretty bad) but the 10 or so that I did were overwritten. The only one that wasn't overwritten was the one that I locked on the episode level.

    Game metadata structure and manager

    I just updated from MediaBrowser 2.x to MediaBrowser 3 and it's been interesting. A couple of questions that I've tried to search for but did not find exact answers to. 1) After seeing a comment from back in October that Gamebrowser-meta should not be used to manage game metadata, is there a metadata manager with a nice interface (like Gamebrowser-meta or in the vein of metabrowser) that will be produce metadata and images that Gamebrowser likes? I realize Gamebrowser can parse and get metadata on its own, but I would like a manager to help me manually tweak metaadata as I would like. I love how metabrowser (and formerly Gamebrowser-meta) can auto retrieve the information but make it easy for me to use custom images or modify information to my preferences. I will admit, Gamebrowser so far as taken my old file system structure and seems to be reading it no problem, so not sure what the exact incompatibility was. 2) Failing that, if I am forced to let Gamebrowser auto retrieve meta data and manually modify it, can someone provide a detailed description of all the metadata / image files that Gamebrowser looks for and uses? I realize the tutorial shows images of the folder structure and along with the configuration options, it's very useful, but I was hoping for specifics, such as what image files Gamebrowser will use. The tutorial shows a "folder" and a "thumb" in each platform. Does it allow other image names for platforms? And there were no image files in the game folders themselves. Are there any supported? I can play around with these things from my old Gamebrowser-meta produced workspace, but I was hoping someone would provide (or point me to) a more detailed explanation. Thanks for the great plugin! Just looking forward to having Gamebrowser back to working order after I finish the configuration (getting the metadata in order would just be a bonus).
  11. I think the album description fetching is very good and informative. I was surprised to find a couple of albums in collection (without having to look hard, I suspect there are a few) where the mbz album id was populated and the album description was either blank or the old last fm one with html tags. in both cases by manually populating the release group id (which was blank), the good album description fetched. but as the there is only one known (to mbz) release group id for an album id....shouldn, t mb3 have already populated the info?
  12. When in the metadata manager, None of the changes I make are saved.i.e.: add a genre and it is not saving. I try to lock some of the fetchers, but that is not being saved ether. There used to be a "Save button", but is not showing..
  13. Hello Version 3.0.5343.40355 Yesterday I uninstall Media browser, today I install again, but tv seasons doesn't show properly. Metadata was saved on tv folders, all images etc was saved in past. Now it looks like MB don't see images and don't issue season item. Example below. How to relink automatically all seasons in tv shows?so I will be see correctly... Second thing, from what depending that sometimes MB download to folder season01-poster.jpg and sometimes only season01-landscape.jpg(I check poster also exist to that tv shows). Regards
  14. Hi All - I am looking at the Plex client for LG TVs and an Amazon FireTV box since MB3 is not there yet. When I set up the Plex libraries pointing at my local metadata produced over time with and without Plex/XBMC Metadata Compatibility, the results were a bit mixed up in TV with series and season posters, etc. I have already looked in the server section and at the server tutorial and the Media Files & Folders Structure, but found no documentation. Is there any documentation regarding what specific metadata is produced, renamed, reformatted by the server for both of these clients? Thanks, Tanamur
  15. "Twin Peaks," the most important fictional television series ever, has been released in a spectacular blu-ray boxset. As I'm porting the disc contents to my server, I'm wondering how I might get all of this stuff organized sensibly. I'd like for the movie "Fire Walk with Me" to show up in my "Television" collection, within the "Twin Peaks" series, perhaps as s03e01. I'd like to include many of the supplemental features (e.g. "The Missing Pieces" and "Between Two Worlds") within the series, probably as s00eXX. Do any of you have ideas on how such things may be done?
  16. Once upon a time, I had this series properly identified. I suspect that was back in my XBMC/pre-MB3 days. Now, I cannot for the life of me to get any scrapers to find this show. It is an anime show, so I tried running with just AniDB and AniList running. I tried running with just the TVDb scraper. I tried entering TheTVDb ID, but that did not override the scraper like it does if I run a movie search using the TheMoveDb. So, I'm wondering, since the show actually resides in the online databases, how can I force it to go find the right show? I've tried various keywords in the title. I've tried the entire title. I've tried combining words with AniDb and TheTVDb ID# entries. Nothing seems to force the scraper to look where it should. Here's the show: Space Pirate Captain Herlock: Outside Legend - The Endless Odyssey It's AniDB entry 533 At The TVDb it is entry 81506 Found here I'm open to any suggestions as to how I can get this properly scraped. I'm at my wit's end trying to force it to find a way to redirect the scrapers to the right location.
  17. Just recently (didn't look into it until tonight, but I think I noticed something a couple days ago) the Artist "Weezer" suddenly got changed to "Raditude", which is a name of one of their albums. Now, looking at that in the metadata manager it looks like this. Now, when i try and go back and change it back, MBS keeps thinking it's an album, not an artist or album artist. I tried deleting all of the corresponding info in Windows explorer, but it still keeps it as Raditude. I'm looking right now for some related logs. Only seems to have happened to Weezer, as far as I can tell.
  18. I have recently set up a server for my movie collections thanks to the help of peeps from this forum. I have upgraded from MB2 to MB3. So my initial metadata for movies was collected by Mb2, Mb3 and MCM. As of now I am only using WMC with MB3 but in the future I would like to try Plex and XBMC. What I am trying to do is collect all the metadata that would work with MB3 , Plex and XBMC before I transfer it to my server. My thinking is once I have all the metadata set up correctly then in the future I could also try Plex and XBMC. I have read that old MB2 metadata does work with MB3 and XBMC and MB3 can share the same metadata system. I have read that there is a plugin for MB server that saves XBMC and the old MB2 metadata but have not found it? Can MCM be used? This is the way I setup my folders: HD movies folder, specific movie name (1992) [1080p] folder. In this specific movie name folder I also state all metadata. What is the best way to accomplish this? Thanks in advance.
  19. I'm not quite sure what's going on here. For some of the series that I have, I am able to click the "Identify" button in the Metadata Manager, for others, such as Mad Men, it's not identifying, and I don't even have the "Identify" button available. The directory structure is correct (I have season folders underneath the top level directory) and media content is present. Yet, for some reason, as you can see in the screenshots there, on the one system, it's pulling VERY odd titles for the sub-folders (The Bachelor UK, The Biggest Winner Arab (season 3), Ed, Edd 'n' Eddy: Season 1: Vol. 2, For the Love of Ray J). It's very odd because I tried copying over the directory structure from another MB Server which is showing the metadata properly and I'm only getting this error on the new machine... and only on some series. :/ Any ideas why the "Identify" button wouldn't show up? Or why it's not populating the metadata properly for some series automatically in the first place?
  20. I was going through my movies the other night and noticed a lot of banners in foreign languages (for non-foreign films). I went into the metadata manager images tab, and clicked the cloud next to the banners in question and get choices in multiple languages even though I have the "All Languages" checkbox unchecked. I see in the choices from FanArt that next to the resolution of the image is the two letter language code. A) I shouldn't see the other languages if the checkbox is unchecked Images shouldn't be auto-downloading for other languages C) If no image is available in your selected language (based on the metadata, basics, preferred download language option), don't download anything. edit: fixed B smiley
  21. Hi everyone, First off, I would like to say thanks to anyone involved in the creation of Media Browser. Simply amazing work. Anyways, I did some searching around the forums, and couldn't find anything about this specific issue. I am having a little trouble with my folder system, specifically for my stand-up comedy specials. My movies and TV shows are working perfectly, fetching metadata, images, etc. But I cannot seem to get the comedy folders to work properly. Right now I have it set up as Comedy>[Comedian Name]>[special Name (Year)]>[Filename] So in Windows Explorer, one example would look like this: F:\Comedy\Gallagher\Mad as Hell (1981)\Mad as Hell (1981).mp4 My issue is that I am not getting the images, coverart, metadata, etc. to download. I am getting the [filename-poster.jpg] file that is pulled from the video, but that's it. I know that I have some lesser-known specials, or ones that may not have coverart available from the normal sources, like the one I mentioned above. But I'm not even getting the info for the well-known ones, like Jim Gaffigan. Side question: Is there any way to prevent incorrect info from being downloaded? For example, if there is a movie or TV show that shares a name with another, more popular movie or TV show, the metadata and images for the more popular one generally gets downloaded. Any help that anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated.

    Gamebrowser and metadata

    How does gamebrowser scrape for metadata. It used to be in Gamebrowser II that it would use the directory title. Now it seems that it's looking at the contents of said directory. It doesn't work right for multi disc games. S.
  23. Hi there: Usual caveats - suspect I have something wrong, but can't spot it. What I want to do Find the TV series that having missing episodes and/or seasons. What I think should work Going to the MediaBrowser web client > TV > Episodes, clicking the Filter icon and selecting Missing episodes. What actually happens I get missing episodes, but for one and only one TV show. Note that the TV show in question is The Tunnel. Why I think it's wrong I can manually confirm other TV series that are missing either individual episodes or whole seasons. Below is an example of each Missing episodes in a season Missing seasons What I've checked The series are both 'identified' by MediaBrowser - I don't show it above, but they are shown as TV series, have theTVDB and IMDB id's, are happy as larry. I have "Download artwork and metadata from the internet" and "Save artwork and metadata into media folders" enabled I've restarted the server (software) Checked library scans are happening a-okay I've 're-identified' House, hit Save, done a media scan, and still no joy. I cannot find the "Import missing episodes into seasons" setting which is referred to in old blog posts and pointed to in most of the forum threads. Has it moved or been removed? Stuff and things Server: 3.0.5287.19943 Application: Web Client - no surprises it is 3.0.5287.19943 Log file attached log.txt
  24. I have searched and I could not find any information on my question. How do you Metadata your Bonus DvDs? There as to be a way right? If this question has been asked point me in the direction of the post. Maybe I was just searching the wrong thing. Thanks!
  25. My Album artist view in dashboards shows invalid objects, namely, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s. I know they are invalid in MB3 terms as they have no content when viewed in dashboard (and a full scan has successfully completed) They are also invalid because MP3TAG confirms there is no such albumartist. in library explorer, using 60s as an example { "IsAccessedByName": false, "Tags": [ "indie", "indie rock", "ska", "alternative", "rock" ], "ProductionLocations": [ ], "IsFolder": true, "ContainingFolderPath": "\\\\Q6600\\Music\\Compilations\\Decades\\60s", "IsOwnedItem": false, "ThemeSongIds": [ ], "ThemeVideoIds": [ ], "IsPhysicalRoot": false, "IsRoot": false, "LinkedChildren": [ ], "ImageInfos": [ { "Path": "\\\\Q6600\\Music\\Compilations\\Decades\\60s\\Folder.jpg", "Type": "Primary", "DateModified": "2008-12-29T17:05:26.0000000Z" }, { "Path": "\\\\Q6600\\Music\\Compilations\\Decades\\60s\\backdrop.jpg", "Type": "Backdrop", "DateModified": "2014-02-24T15:58:50.1945572Z" } ], "IsInMixedFolder": false, "Name": "60s", "Id": "836b0a534e6699041ad35bd324efac16", "Path": "\\\\Q6600\\Music\\Compilations\\Decades\\60s", "SupportsLocalMetadata": true, "DateCreated": "2013-03-07T21:12:49.0000000Z", "DateModified": "2014-02-24T16:46:52.9704425Z", "DateLastSaved": "2014-02-24T15:58:50.1955572Z", "DontFetchMeta": false, "LockedFields": [ ], "PremiereDate": "2003-01-01T00:00:00.0000000Z", "DisplayMediaType": "MusicArtist", "Overview": "\n The Dead 60s formed in Liverpool, United Kingdom in 2003, they comprised of Matt McManamon (Vocals, Guitar), Ben Gordon (Guitar, Organ), Charlie Turner (Bass Guitar), Bryan Johnson (Drums).

I guess mb3 is confused my by folder structure for compilations, maybe i need to ask for a feature request so i can put a .ignore file in my folder structure for music folders which neither represent artists or albums and are just organisational folders on the filesystem. Possibly mb3 is further confounded by the fact that these organisational folders have folder.jpgs in them. thank you.
