  1. Right now there is only an option to "Save artwork and metadata into media folders". This is quite restrictive as you either get a whole bunch af files with your movies or nothing at all. You also do not get performance benefits of an SSD with this option selected or if it's not selected you do not get metadata (nfo) files for Kodi or folder.jpg for windows explorer. I would like the option to choose what metadata and artwork to save where and even to both system and media folders at the same time. In my case I would save .nfo metadata file and folder.jpg poster to media folders for Kodi and Windows explorer respectively as well as all metadata and artwork to the system drive for performance and power saving reasons (single ssd access vs multiple hdds spinning up).

    Metadata Not In Folders

    Ran into an issue, and hoping someone can either point me to an existing solution or help me solve the issue. My Emby Server runs on it's own system in command line Ubuntu Server. Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS All my media is on a different server that Emby has Read/Write access to. Not a Linux expert and have to look most Linux things up, using Linux to force myself to learn it better. I recently ran into the issue of the Emby root drive filling up due to metadata. I had started with not having all of the libraries set to download the metadata to the media folders but went back and checked that box. They continued to not save in the media folders but I didn't have any issues so thought nothing of it. About a week or two ago I kept getting errors and could not log into the Web side. Turns out the root folder on my Emby server has filled up. So I deleted all the metadata on the Emby server. Still didn't save correctly so I deleted my libraries and recreated them with the save metadata to the media folder checked. That seemed to work, the metadata is now being saved to the media folders. I just noticed though that when I add new media, the metadata is not saved to the media folders. I also noticed that all the JPG, NFO, and SRT files in my media folders are 0 KB and unable to open to anything. My Emby server root folder hasn't filled up like it did before. Is there another setting that I'm missing?

    Missing Metadata?

    Hi, My Emby Server is running on QNAP My Emby Client is running on Android TV I would like to ask a few questions about metadata in the forum because I noticed that some are not showing / downloading maybe it's a consequence of: - I have wrong setup, then I would like to ask for help - Plugin bug? - (yet) lack of functionality Metadata: 1) Movies - I noticed that in the actor / actress detail there is only the date of birth and place of birth (eg Michael Douglas) in the description, while the IMDB or TvMovieDB contain a lot of extra information (CV, ...), other data aren't downloaded or is it some kind of bug ? Movie Library has set up Czech language. 2) Music - no metadata about the album (song list only) or about music-band is downloaded (these data are on MusicBrainz, TvAudioDb, Last.fm) - does not have a TvAudioDb identifier (does this plugin work?) - I had (05/2019) running to test Emby Server on Windows and I know the data was there there were metadata in the album.nfo file: <album> (empty now) <outline> (empty now) <audiodbartistid> (does not exist in the file now) <audiodbalbumid> (does not exist in the file now) Music Library has setup up English language (originally Czech language but I changed it to English because there are very few translations to Czech / Slovak) preferences of scrabbers MusicBrainz TvAudioDb Last.fm Proposal: Would be possible to download information about the Actor / Actress / Album / Group / Singer / Singer for example also from Wikipedia? Thank you T2

    How to Recover Movies list

    Good morning, first of all best compliments for your fantastic software. I had a hard disk failure. In this disk i had part of my movies collection that i had previously backuped on another disk. There is a way to recover the movies list that was recognized by emby? So i could rebuild my movie library at the same state before disk failure. At this moment Emby runs correctly on another disk and it never stopped working I tried with local.db but i couldn't find the complete movies list Thanks in advance

    Metadata manager without icons

    Hi @@Happy2Play, Does anyone knows why I don't see the icons next to the titles in the metadata manager? I lack images (covers, fanarts, background images ...) but I don't see the icons warning: Before I could see something like this: Thanks! -- Emby Synology 216+ Versión
  6. I have a bunch of anime eps that I've been watching, and they were all named properly until yesterday. Yesterday my internet got turned back on (it was off for a week), and I added a few new episodes of the anime. Suddenly ALL the episodes have been renamed to "John Dies In The End", which is a movie I don't even have. I also notice that emby had an update which might have effected metadata.. Any thoughts on what I should try?

    Music details

    It would be amazing if Emby could store detailed info on a track/tune. Not only could we add things like lyrics but other, maybe, historical info e.g. like this music was composed to the festival...
  8. As you can see in the picture below, the actor thumbnails are recorded in 2 different ways, local position and tmdb link. But what I really want is that all the actor thumbnail are recorded as a tmdb link, yes I would rather load the images every time I explore the series in the library because I don't see necessity having those on my local disk permanently. Is there any way to achieve my need?

    Bulk editing

    In the metadata editor, my expectation is that when I choose and edit a TV show (main hierarchy folder), changing the parental rating should change all of the (sub-folders) seasons and episodes accordingly. However, this does not happen. Instead, every single episode has to be manually adjusted. Please fix this behaviour.
  10. I have a new problem with my tv shows that im sure I cant be the only one I have a tv show called House or also known as House MD which does not show up on the TVDB unless you search in a different language Is there a way to force emby to use the TVDB series id to download the correct metadata ? I tried allowing other scrappers to download the info but they all get it wrong
  11. If I add any new files to one of my Libraries it will not identify properly and pull down metadata. If I manually identify the files then it works fine. Running Version
  12. Hello all. There was recently a new version of Emby which seems to have changed how videos, specifically TV show episodes are tracked and displayed. I used to just get the season for latest video, if I put more than one episode in the folder. Now it shows the season, and each episode, and sometimes the series as a separate item in the folder. I want it to go back to just the season or the episode. What changed? What setting do I need to adjust, Thank you.
  13. Hi All- Just testing out Emby to replace Kodi in my home network. Having issues getting the correct (DVD) order for Firefly. When I attempt to edit the Metadata to change the Display Order to 'DVD' and save, nothing changes and the following error shows in the log: 2019-07-30 10:01:40.405 Error App: Error in TheTVDB *** Error Report *** Version: Command line: C:\EmbyServer\system\EmbyServer.dll Operating system: Microsoft Windows NT 6.2.9200.0 64-Bit OS: True 64-Bit Process: True User Interactive: True Runtime: file:///C:/EmbyServer/system/System.Private.CoreLib.dll Processor count: 4 Program data path: C:\EmbyServer\programdata Application directory: C:\EmbyServer\system System.ArgumentException: System.ArgumentException: An item with the same key has already been added.

  14. Emby Server Version Metadata is loading without any problems, but for whatever reason, images simply will not download. If someone could take a look at the server log and let me know if there is anything I should attempt to mitigate this, I would appreciate it. Thanks! Log.txt

    Issues in Linux setup

    Hi All, I am attempting to setup Emby on Ubuntu 18.04 and I have a couple of issues I am looking for help. I have all my media in a old NAS (which doesn't support apps like Emby on it), so I am running Ubuntu on a seperate laptop - all connected with ethernet cables and my broadband is 300mbps. I tried many times, but Emby server on Ubuntu never indexed my full library. My library is not huge - I have about 100 movies, and 10 TV shows. After a few fresh attempts I managed to get the TV shows done, but then when I add Movies, it just doesn't do the full job. and I Uninstalled the server and all packages including metadata folders using a package uninstaller, but just never been able to index everything which is really frustrating. When I try this on Windows 7 on the same laptop, it works like a charm, and takes much less time. The main reason I am trying to stick to Linux is because, with Win 7 I feel the laptop is boiling - and it's a setup I only use for this server, so I can't see any other heavy processes running, yet it's always really hot and it's worrying to keep the laptop like that under my TV unit. Ubuntu on the other hand was just fine, and I had Emby server running for a whole day - I don't think it ever got as hot as it did with Win7. My 2nd issue is to be able to delete files from the interface (web client or my 3x kodi setups with emby add on). With windows 7, my file locations are simply mapped as \\MYBOOKLIVE\MOVIES\xx, in Ubuntu, I didn't want user log in's to be a problem, so allowed anonymous access and file locations would refer as smb://mybooklive/movies/xx - although I can read/write within the Ubuntu explorer, I think I am only getting read only access from Emby server. Maybe this a question on how to setup network folders in Linux to use with Emby. Any help would be much appreciated. Many Thanks
  16. Hello Since the last Emby update, Any time I add a new movie that has multiple version (Like 4K, 1080p) The filters only seem to pick up the 1080p file rather then the 4K File An Example is attached: I have Glass in 4K HDR along with a 1080p 10bit version. The NFO file is attached to the 4K video but when I filter by 4K it will not show up,

    Not finding TV show metadata

    Emby seems to be having trouble scanning the metadata for a series I have. My library type is set to Tv Shows and I have all metadata sources in use to try to search for the metadata. My series is "Star Wars the Clone Wars" and the episode names are in the format "Star Wars The Clone Wars 03X15 Overlords.mkv" Where "03X15" represents the season and episode, and "Overlords" is the episode name in this case. I am running server version (latest) Any help would be appreciated as there is no way I am going to manually search for/enter the metadata for 6 seasons (over 150 episodes) worth of video.
  18. Hello, Please add an option (button or checkbox) to copy parental ratings to season and episode level.

    Parental Ratings display

    Hello, Could the the parental ratings for movies be imported/displayed from TheMovieDB the same as they are for tv series. eg. MA15+ instead of AU-MA15+? Also, use the same display method in the drop-down menus in the metadata editor.
  20. Problem Scenario: Episodes have the correct episode name/title but the wrong episode order or sequence. Issue: In these problem scenarios, Emby overlooks the correct episode name/title in favor of episode order/sequence and fetches/displays metadata as such causing the wrong episode names/titles to display in Emby. Feature Request: Implement an override mechanic (at the series level) that will match/fetch metadata of the episode filename(s) based on the episode's name/title listed with the metadata provider. Feature Request Design: When the override is enabled for a particular series, the episodes for that series will have its metadata fetched and displayed based primarily on the episode's name/title and would automatically sort it or sequence it based on that. This way if you're not certain (or know for sure) that there's a mismatch between the episode name/title, Emby would compensate using the override so the user doesn't have to manually rename all affected episodes from affected series' to match the episode listing from the metadata provider. Practicality: This would alleviate the need to match verbatim the episode names/titles and their corresponding ordering/sequencing by the primary metadata provider. Plus if you have to do renaming anyway; you could focus solely on the episode name/title instead of in addition to the episode order/sequence which would moderately decrease the amount of effort/time one would spend renaming episodes provided they already know what the names/titles should be for the episodes. Override Scenario 1: The filenames have pre-populated episode names/titles and ordering/sequencing but there's a mismatch with the metadata provider Override Scenario 2: The episode naming/title/ordering/sequencing from the physical source doesn't match the metadata provider (due to user error or listing mismatch with metadata provider) Application: Tv Show Library Content Types Why does this need to be Added? Depending on the source of the media, there are scenarios where information/metadata is pre-populated (showname, episodename, episodeorder, etc) for the filenames and instead of having to correct partially inaccurate or partially disordered filenames (even though though the episode name/title is verifiably correct), The user could click a box to enable this override for each series that fit the problem scenario and/or the override scenarios without having to re-name/re-title/re-sequence who knows how many individual episodes
  21. There are some media items (Anime, TV Shows, Cartoons) that have the wrong episode titles & metadata fetched which is causing a mismatch in episode numbers and episode titles. Now most of these items have the actual episode name and episode number in the filename but when metadata is fetched; the episode order and naming is all overwritten and trying to manually correct this via the metadata manager is daunting. Does anyone have recommendations on how to prevent this or have it recognize or populate episode metadata based solely on the filename and order the episodes based on the filenames? These filenames with episode title and episode titles are pre-populated from streaming sources (Hulu, Prime Video, etc). I would like to have it auto-recognize and auto-order the episodes based on the filenames because i don't know for sure that the filenames that came from the streaming sources are correct as is. Even if it doesn't match the episode ordering of the metadata fetchers; at least have the episode names right and re-order as needed. Would it be better to just remove the episode ordering from the filenames and just leave the name of the episode by itself?

    Movie metadata language

    I am running Emby Though configured to Portuguese Emby gets English metadata for movies except for the tagline. See image below.
  23. I have content (in my case work-related seminars, workshops, etc) that does not exist in any online metadata DBs and which I'm trying to organize in a "Home Video" Content Type Library. I would find it very useful if we could populate a few metadata fields by following a particular Filename Pattern. My proposal is that support be added for the following two filename patterns (the first one is my preference, but I think some people might also prefer the second in some instances): (20190415) This Is A Title [People A+People B].mkv This Is A Title (20190415) [People A+People B].mkv (20190415): yyyymmdd, which then populates the fields Release Date (mm/dd/yyyy) and Year (yyyy). If the user enters only a partial string, such as (2019) or (201904) then the provided data still updates the corresponding fields (and whatever is not provided is left blank). This Is A Title: Populates the Title field. [People A+People B]: Populates People, ie, People A is one person, People B is another, and so on. The plus sign "+" acts as the delimiter, which enables more than one person to be indicated. The limit to how many People can be added this way would just be the limits of how long a filename can be (which is an OS-specific limit). A Title or Date (one of the two) would be required, but the People string would be optional. If someone just uses the Date (20190415) then that would populate both the relevant date fields, and it would populate the Title field, eg, with "20190415". I propose that this feature be Enabled for new Library creation (only for Home Video Content Type Libraries), but disabled for existing Home Video Libraries (so we don't mess up anyone's existing content). And of course the feature could be Enabled/Disabled via a checkbox in the Library Settings. Perhaps the Setting could be called "Populate Metadata via Filename" and there could be a link to a wiki article on Github explaining the proper syntax. However, if the Devs feel that this should be treated as an Advanced feature and disabled by default for new Library creation I'm fine with that too. Thanks for considering my request!

    Track titles

    Hello, Awesome job with adding the track title settings into the latest server release. Is it possible this could be expanded on, by adding an override at the metadata level, as well as a manual option based on the auto-generated titles.
  25. There's various old threads regarding this and Tags: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/37700-autocomplete-tags/ https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/40912-metadata-manager-tags-autocomplete/ https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/66541-autocomplete-metadata-tags/ I propose making Metadata fields such as Genres, People, Studios, Tags (and any other field this might make sense for) Autocomplete-capable so that we can start typing and see a list of existing options to choose from. This will help a lot with making sure we are staying consistent and not accidentally adding a new variation on an existing value. Thanks for considering my request!
