  1. Hi, I have set up a mixed content folder and now try to manually correct the incorrect data. However, it is not possible to change a wrong identified tv show to a movie based on the ID, because the ID will only select tv. Can this be changed?
  2. One of the supported TV file naming conventions is: 02 Episode Name.extFor a show that airs every weekday, the episode number often grows to three digits. For example: /Some Show/Season 2/123 Some Title.m4v Emby mis-identifies the file above as Some Show, Season 1 (even though it is in the Season 2 folder), Episode 23 (even though the filename has the number 123 in it). Is it really not possible to support this format for three digit episode numbers?
  3. Hello all, I've been slowly converting my Music library into Emby, and I am noticing something that is a slight annoyance. It seems to be at random but Emby does not always import the Overview metadata for the album from MusicBrainz. Sometimes I have to click on the link for MusicBrainz Release Group id, and copy the Wikipedia data off the website myself. I can't find any reason why sometimes it works and other times it doesn't. Has anybody else run into this? Thanks!
  4. Hi there! I'm trying to add an album from "Turilli / Lione Rhapsody" but emby detects as a collaboration album and creates two different artists: "Turilli" and "Lione Rhapsody" Is there a way to add it correctly or I need to replace this character with another one, like "-" for example?

    Audiobook Metadata Issues

    I'm working on setting up an Audio Book library and it is not pulling in the embedded metadata, specifically the images, correctly. When pulling in multiple books in one "Album", I would expect to see each book's individual cover. Instead I am seeing all books with the cover image of the first one. (Image: Wrong.png) I have found a workaround by removing the file's Album metadata tag (I use Mp3tag), loading the books into Emby, and then manually changing the Emby Album tag for each book. (Image: Right.png) However, this is a very tedious process with hundreds of audio books. Not to mention that if I accidentally hit "Refresh Metadata" or need to redo my Emby server for some reason, then it would take hours of work to get it back to where I want it. Thank you for looking into this.

    Audiobook Image Tagging

    For audiobooks, I organize each series as an album. So for example, Harry Potter would have seven books within the series. However, when the Album tag is read by Emby, it gives each book the same cover image regardless of the image metadata on each file. I would like to see each file's metadata be utilized individually instead of just the first one when it comes to the cover image as well.
  7. edit 30/08/2022 I've updated the script as follows - - On repeat usage, added Progress Monitor when skipping existing STRM files (rather than thinking it's hung ..) - Added Summary page of the New Libraries This also works with TV Series - due to the nature of each episode needing it's own STRM file - it takes a little longer, but works just as well. ------- I've created a simple script that creates a copy of the structure of an existing emby library (file path). It then populates this new structure with strm (link) files back to the original video files. You can then use this library as a new library within emby - and subsequently you can choose the metadata language as you would do as part of the normal setup. This means you can get : native language metadata (if it exists) native language artwork (if that exists) subtitle language as required (you can do multi language subs in the core system) The video file is played from the original library - so there is no need to duplicate the video files. If required, user permission can be removed from the main library, leaving just this new library to browse in the users native language. Usage (windows batch file) Copy the batch file 'libstrm.bat' and 'library.txt' to the emby server in a suitable directory. Modify the 'library.txt' file to match your system. In the example file I have - D:\TV Series\;D:\French TV Series\ D:\Films\;D:\German Films\ Also works with UNC - \\media\TV Series\;\\media\French TV Series\ \\media\Films\;\\media\German Films\ The first path is the original location, the second path is the new library location (with the strm files). Note - the path must end with a \ and the entries are separated by a semi-colon. The 'library.txt' file can contain any number of drives and folders - I suggest testing with a sample to start with. Run the 'libstrm.bat' file from a command. Depending on the number of folders/files - it may take a few seconds or more to complete - but it will show progress as it goes. Once complete - create new emby libraries pointing to the new locations - remembering to set the metadata language as required. For example :- Once setup and emby has scanned the new folders (it will do this automatically if set to monitor - or a manual scan) - all the relevant metadata will be imported. As an example - in my test French library :- Note the French metadata, episode names and artwork. In my test German library :- Again, German metadata & artwork. Keeping the system updated ... Because creating the strm files is manual - to add NEW media, the script can just be run again (via the Windows task schedule ever day for example). If the strm file is already there, it will not recreate it. However, if media is removed from the original library (remember it links to it, it is not a copy) - then the strm link will unfortunately break. It can of course just be removed manually by deleting the strm file. I've added a progress bar to now show when items are skipped (every 100 items gets a # displayed..) Media Playback ... The resulting playback will of course be identical to playing the original file (as it IS the original file) but any playback preferences will be remembered for that library. So if the Audio was set to French with French subtitles, then next time it is played, it will remember those settings. There may be a way of setting these to a library default in the native language - I have not experimented with this. Feedback welcome. (rename the libstrm.bat.txt file to libstrm.bat) library.txtlibstrm.bat.txt
  8. Hi, I have 2 tv-shows in my library that somehow doesn't get metadata downloaded. If I go into Metadata Editor (both for the show, season and episode) I can see that Emby has the right ID for the show on thetvdb.com and IMDB, which both has at least some text descriping the specific episode. But the text doesn't get downloaded into Emby. The shows are named like "show name S01E01 episode name", but I have tried without episode name which didn't make any difference. The episodes are located in a folder named "Season 1" which in turn are located in a folder named "show name". I have tried to look at the log files, but as I don't know what to look for it is not easy. Does anyone has any idea on how I can fix this issue?

    Common Sense Media ratings

    You have critic ratings and tomato meter, it would be be nice to see a Common Sense Media age rating. Or an option to turn it on or a plugin to enable it. Thanks!
  10. I am wondering what is the use of this people slot for each artists, as why would one add a composer or writer directly under an artist's metadata but not within the song's one. Also, I tried to add a person by typing his name but the dialog just closes after I push the Enter button, and nothing shows up under people. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    Bulk Meta Data Editor

    I mentioned it in another thread, but thought I'd put it here since this looks like a new section--just for posterity. Would like to have a bulk meta data editor function. For example, if I have 750 videos whose producing studio is the same, I want to select those videos and apply the name of the studio to those videos. Similarly, if there is a custom tag I want to apply to a subset of those movies, I want to be able to select them in bulk and apply the tag to those videos (instead of selecting them one by one).
  12. Greetings, I've updated the embedded images for an audiobook album with Picard, but I can't seem to get emby to see the change. In Picard, you can see I've updated the embedded image for the whole album in the bottom right corner: Yet in emby, it still shows the old embedded image: There are no images like `cover.jpg` or anything like that in the album folder. I'm only sourcing from the embedded images for the album. I only have external image fetchers enabled for artists: On songs, I only have the image extractor enabled: Here are some of the things I've tried: I tried refreshing Metadata with replace images checked on: the entire audiobook library, the album, every individual file within the album I tried removing the album and readding it I tried deleting my entire audiobook library, then readding it. Because I've tried deleting and readding it, I'm assuming some sort of cached image keeps getting reused. Is there some way to prevent that? Or to clear out that cached image? I tried `Vacuum the database on the next Emby Server startup`, but that didn't seem to help at all. Any help would be appreciated. I've been pulling my hair on this one for a couple hours now... embyserver.txt
  13. If I add new movies to Emby the movie metadata isn't downloaded directly. If I manually Identify the movie only some metadate (like Images and Title) are fetched. Other metadata (like Plot and Actors) are not downloaded. I only use TMDB as metadata provider. For example I tried the movie Independence Day (1996). The complete metadata of this movie is available on TMDB, but it's not downloaded completely:e I also appended the Logs ("CompleteLog.txt") and already identified a relevant section ("RelevantLogSection.txt"). Emby reports an Error in TheMovieDB that states: I already restarted my NAS (Synology DS 220+), restarted Emby (Version 4.7.4.0), tried different movies and used the Refresh Meta button. In Addition the metadata fetching was possible until yesterday. RelevantLogSection.txt CompleteLog.txt
  14. Hi - I'm experiencing an unusual problem associated with reading Metadata updates. I'm running Emby Server with a PPTP/VPN server and NGINX reverse proxy server. In general Emby works as expected (remote connections to the server and streaming are all possible) but for some reason, when connected to the VPN Metadata updates (and I think EPG updates) cannot be read. I've tested this and the problem is repeatable. When the server is connected to the internet via the VPN connection Metadata updates and searches cannot be read, when connected to the local ISP internet provision then Metadata updates can be read. I've attached the error log which may give some indication as to the source of the problem. I'm confident it isn't a Firewall problem and I've checked routing for both Ports 8096 and 8920. I'm fairly confident the problem is something to do with the interaction between the NGINX server and the VPN connection. I'd welcome any suggestions from folk as to how I might fix this problem . Thank you. embyserver(3).txt
  15. Hi, so i reorganized my YT Backup/downloaded library to include more metadata. I am basically using <Videotitle> - <Uploaddate> - <YTVideoid>. but instead of registering for example 2022-05-14 as full date it detects it as from the year 20220514. Any idea how to fix it or define certain positions in the file name as year / month / day bc when you count the letters from the back of the file name the yt id is 11 characters on every video then space - space and then the date Regards :)

    Synology + Docker + Emby + Metadata

    Hi guys, for reasons not worth explaining here I am currently without my dedicated server hardware. So I decided to install Docker to my Synology NAS and install the Emby image. My reasons for using the Docker Emby image and not the native Synology Emby app are various. DSM 6.2.4-25556 Update 2 Docker 20.10.3-0554 Emby latest (4.7.0.9) When I entered my premier key I got an error. After a bit of digging I found that if I turned off my Synology firewall then the key worked fine. Not ideal but to turn off the firewall for a few seconds while my premier key is validated and verified is not a deal breaker. What I found next is that when scanning my video library it doesn't download any metadata unless the firewall is off. I've tried a few different firewall rules but to no avail. Does anyone here have any ideas or the answer? Many thanks in advance! Container Log emby-1.html Container Settings emby.json embyserver.txt
  17. I am changing my home Emby server from an Ubuntu based .deb package installation to a Docker setup. I did not realise that you could keep all the metadata, images and subtitles in each Movie or TV Show folder. Is it possible to wave a magic wand and copy all the current metadata, images and subtitles (gathered over the years!) to each of the Movie or TV Show folders when I install Emby using Docker? I guess this is Docker independant and it would be best to do this operation before the change to Docker? /var/lib/emby/metadata/ --> /srv/storage/Emby/Movies/Movie Name (YEAR)/Movie Name (YEAR).nfo etc I await your magic wand. Paully

    Pictures from Fanart just grey

    Starting a few days ago all pictures from fanart ar just shown in grey. Updating the FreeNas plugin to the newest available version didn't change anything. It happened from one day to the other without changes on the system. Did fanart make changes on their api side or something? Other sources work fine. Problem seems to only occur with different series. No problem with films. (See attached Screenshot).
  19. I've got some shows with sentence-long file names which are picked up in the web interface but with no metadata and without the ability to play them back on clients (tested on Android and TV version). I've enabled LongPathEnabled in the registry, which leads me to believe that there might have something to do with Emby. Is this something that can perhaps be fixed on your side?
  20. Emby Server on Windows 10 (v 4.6.7.0) After adding Moon Knight (https://thetvdb.com/series/moon-knight) the first episode is available with the title in Emby as "TBA". No matter how many times I try and refresh all metadata on the episode, series or whole TV show it remains at "TBA". TVDB is the first metadata provider for the TV Shows library and it has the correct name for the episode. The filename even has the name of the episode in it. The metadata is NOT locked (first thing I checked). I had this before with Book of Boba Fett and had to edit the metadata manually but thought it was an isolated case. The server log only shows ffprobe.exe refreshing the episode thumbnail and coverart doing it's thing (CoverArt: image enhance of Moon Knight took 0.016 seconds.) I even deleted the metadata nfo file and refreshed the episode, and it recreate the file with TBA in the details: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes"?> <episodedetails> <plot><![CDATA[Steven Grant learns that he may be a superhero, but may also share a body with a ruthless mercenary.]]></plot> <outline /> <lockdata>false</lockdata> <dateadded>2022-03-31 00:22:13</dateadded> <title>TBA</title> I've run out of troubleshooting ideas now!
  21. Hello everyone, I'm having an issue with metadate images for actors, I have tried refreshing all metadata, searching for missing data and manually replacing the images but nothing seems to stick. Can anyone give any advice? I've added an image from the android app as reference but this also appears like this when using localhost Many thanks! EDIT: so manually refreshing metadata for each actor and ticking replace existing images works but is there a better way to do this? Refreshing all metadata from the emby server menu doesn't seem to clear it up?

    Metadata, wrong language..

    Hi I try to get my metadata to be in Norwegian, nothing I do change this. I have tried Norwegian, Norwegian Bokmål and Nynorsk. Stil does not change. Is there something I don't do right? Petter
  23. Hello I do have problem with reduplicating labels (names) on some albums, genres and song and with randomly generated albums/artists in music library. It started with Amy Winehouse +- half year ago, after some updates (4.7.0.28) issue spread on AC/DC, Limp Bizkit and few more, both for flac and mp3. My tags are fine, I tried to scan library and refresh metadata with no luck. I did create new library but It seems that old library share same metadata with new one, I assume I would have to delete old library first but in that case I will lost all "favourite" labels. If I switch to "Album Artist" tab artists will not be splitted but album will keep duplicated name. What am I doing wrong? Is there any solution? Thank you
  24. Hi. I've set up a Raspberry Pi 4 with an external 4TB HDD. It's running Raspberry OS Lite (Debian GNU/Linux 11, bullseye), with installed Docker and Emby server in it - it's all working well for direct streaming to my LG C1. About SUBTITLES - I always do this manually - find them and put them in the same folder where the movie file is. About IMAGES and other info - I don't have any images, covers, etc. I only have movie+subtitle files, nothing else. All the extra data which Emby creates automatically when creating a library (nfo metadata files, covers, actor images, etc.) I'd like to have it in separate folder of my choice. I "played" a little when creating a test library. But I cannot seem to find the solution. 1) NFO files: When creating a library, if I enable "metadata savers", it saves the NFO's in same folder that the media is located. When leaving the "metadata savers" disabled, I have no idea where it stores the NFO's files. 2) IMAGES: When creating a library, if I enable "save artwork into media folders", it save the images in same folder that the media is located. When leaving the "save artwork into media folders" disabled, I have no idea where it stores the image files. I'd like to have my files that I manually downloaded (media+subtitles) intact, AS IS, without any extra info in the same folder - all the NFOs, covers, etc. in one folder (to rule them all ). Inside that "one" folder I don't mind having subfolders My media structure is simple like this: MOVIES: \movies\air_america_1990\avatar_2009.mkv \movies\air_america_1990\avatar_2009.srt \movies\atlantis_the_lost_continent_1961\atlantis_the_lost_continent_1961.mkv \movies\atlantis_the_lost_continent_1961\atlantis_the_lost_continent_1961.srt \movies\the_kings_man_2021\the_kings_man_2021.mp4 \movies\the_kings_man_2021\the_kings_man_2021.srt \movies\mortdecai_2015\mortdecai_2015.mkv \movies\mortdecai_2015\mortdecai_2015.srt \movies\elysium_2013\elysium_2013.mkv \movies\elysium_2013\elysium_2013.srt SERIES: \series\loki_2021\loki_s01e01_glorious_purpose.mp4 \series\loki_2021\loki_s01e01_glorious_purpose.srt \series\loki_2021\loki_s01e02_the_variant.mp4 \series\loki_2021\loki_s01e02_the_variant.srt \series\loki_2021\loki_s01e03_lamentis.mp4 \series\loki_2021\loki_s01e03_lamentis.srt ... etc ... \series\the_it_crowd\the_it_crowd_s01e01.mkv \series\the_it_crowd\the_it_crowd_s01e01.srt \series\the_it_crowd\the_it_crowd_s01e02.mkv \series\the_it_crowd\the_it_crowd_s01e02.srt \series\the_it_crowd\the_it_crowd_s02e01.mkv \series\the_it_crowd\the_it_crowd_s02e01.srt \series\the_it_crowd\the_it_crowd_s02e02.mkv \series\the_it_crowd\the_it_crowd_s02e02.srt \series\the_it_crowd\the_it_crowd_s03e01.mkv \series\the_it_crowd\the_it_crowd_s03e01.srt \series\the_it_crowd\the_it_crowd_s04e01.mkv \series\the_it_crowd\the_it_crowd_s04e01.srt ... etc ... Any help appreciated
  25. my setting: series - 3dots menu - "Edit Metadata" - "Display order" : "Aired" When S00E03 has earlier "Release date" in metadata than S00E02, How they are displayed is: S00E01 S00E02 S00E03 S05E01 ~ S05E12 (Unfortunately, the order of episode numbers and aired dates provided by tvdb does not match. Not natural.) The 3 special episodes have same "Special Episode Info" in their metadata setting which is "Airs during season" : 5, "Airs before episode": 1 When I manually changed "Episode number" in metadata of S00E02 from 2 to 4, it displayed: S00E01 S00E03 S00E02 S05E01 ~ S05E12 So, it seems to follow the episode number instead of the release date it was supposed to follow. (There is no "Aired date" in metadata, I assumed "Release date" is the "Aired date") In my opinion, for sure it is most natural to follow the order of the episode numbers If it is the same season. Specials will also follow the episode number in their special library. But, how about making sure that special episodes follow the aired date order only when they appear in other seasons?
