  1. It occurs to me that the various databases have a great array of images for actors that sometimes will include series specific pictures for them. A few series that pop out to me are Various Star Trek Series, Various TMNT Series, Knights of the Templar, the various CW DC Series; many more. I don't tend to use these so that I don't see one of the posters popup for an actor on a completely unrelated series. Could we have a feature that allows us to have several posters/art for a single actor and specific which to use as default and which to use on specific series? --- Another random feature request (possibly/probably deserving its own thread), on the same vein as actor metadata, currently, we have all the actors on a series get crammed on a single line. I would love to have an option to allow people to display two additional lines for actors, 1 for season regulars (not series regulars, regulars that are for one season only) and then an additional one for notable guest stars. Considering some might see this as clutter, especially if a super awesome way to display this doesn't come along, I would highly recommend that the server admin can opt to turn this feature off and users can also opt to turn this feature on and off; obviously if the server admin opts to turn it off, its turned off for everyone.
  2. I am having some issues with The Walking Dead and The Walking Dead: Origins, Emby keeps matching the later as part of the main show and I can't get it to split at all, if I go into season one of the walking dead and then each episode I can split them there but it still see is as one show and not 2 different ones. I am unable to use folder view as it seems to thing the same here, yet my Plex has detected them properly and there using separate folders on my NAS as per how Sonarr added them
  3. Hallo, ich habe einen neuen Emby Server aufgesetzt und mir ist aufgefallen, das die Zuordnung nicht immer funktioniert, wenn der Film in Deutschland einen anderen Namen hat. Im Beispiel geht es um den Film "Auf der Jagd" von 1998. Wenn ich den Film auf "themoviedb" suche bekomme ich auch den Film als Ergebnis (Film 01 themoviedb). Wenn ich Emby zum Identifizieren des Films benutzte (Film 01 Identifizieren), bekomme ich ein unzufriedenstellendes Ergebnis. Hat jemand eine gute Idee? Gruß Rolf
  4. Hi, Apologies again for the long post. This is a follow-up to my post from the previous year: The discussions there helped me finalise the working of multiple Emby servers that read from the same library with one acting as the metadata writer for generating all the nfo/jpg etc. and the others (referred to as metadata readers) reading those with their respective internet metadata downloaders disabled or uninstalled altogether. Now that 4.6.1 has been released with quite a few changes to how Emby stores and processes the metadata (especially with Collections & Audiobooks), I am planning to wipe the existing metadata and re-generate it with a fresh Emby install so that there are no issues due to upgrades etc. Before going ahead with it, I have a few questions that I would like clarified: * Are the metadata generated by 4.5.4 & 4.6.1 servers inter-compatible (barring Collections, which is stored in a different location altogether)? To clarify, can the metadata writer be in 4.6.1 and the metadata readers be in 4.5.4 or vice-versa? Any issues with client compatibilities? * How are multiple collections stored in the media nfo file? Multiple set tags? * I see that TV shows also have the "Minimum automatic collection size" setting (like Movies) but no option for "Automatically import collections from the enabled metadata downloaders" like Movies. Is that by design? What does changing the size affect then, if it's not automatically importing the collections? * What all content has been moved to the metadata folder, apart from Collections? From a brief search, I see that the People folder was also moved there? Anything else? * Following up on the above, why wasn't the movement of the People folder mentioned in the release notes? The move of Collections is also similarly lacking mention in the release notes but for that, at least there was a mention of the storage rework which helped me to track down the various changes w.r.t the media nfo files & the metadata folder * I see that the people images are only downloaded on-demand now which becomes problematic in my scenario where the metadata folder is mounted as read-write only on the metadata writer & as read-only on the metadata readers with no streaming occurring on the writer. Is there any API call to force a download of those images?

    Deutsche Metadaten TMDB

    Hi, nach längerer Nutzung des TMM um Metadaten zu pflegen, habe ich Mal wieder emby selber getestet. Leider funktioniert das scrapen über TMDB für Filme (Serien ist ein anderes Thema) auf Deutsch immernoch nicht ordentlich. Beispielsweise wird die Handlung für den Film "Luca" auf Englisch bezogen, obwohl auf TMDB eine deutsche Handlung verfügbar ist. (Metadaten über emby schon mehrfach versucht zu aktualisieren, bleiben Englisch) Der TMM ruft korrekt die verfügbare deutsche Handlung ab. Wäre es evtl. möglich, dass sich dieser Problematik einmal angenommen wird? Letztendlich sind die korrekte Abfrage und Verarbeitung von Metadaten ja ein essentieller Bestandteil von emby. Hier wird bei solchen Problemen leider immer bzw. meistens auf eine fehlerhafte APi von z.B. TMDB hingewiesen, dass mag auch mal so gewesen sein, mittlerweile bekommen andere Scraper es aber hin Daten fehlerfrei auf deutsch (wenn verfügbar) von TMDB zu scrapen.

    Metadaten ThemovieDB

    Hallo, ich habe in letzter Zeit ein Problem mit den Bildern bzw. Metadaten bei den Serien. Die Staffeln und Serien bekommen keine neuen Bilder, bzw. sind bei Staffeln alle mit den gleichen Bildern darin. Auch wenn ich auf Identifizieren gehe ändern sich die Bilder nicht? Ist das ein bekanntes Problem? Wie kann ich das umgehen? LG
  7. I upgrade to MB3 Media Browers Classic from an older Media Browser. Mostly having problems with T.V. shows like the The Office (American), it has never downloaded the artwork. But with MB3, it still didn't download artwork or most but did downloaded a lot of incorrect episode names, artwork and descriptions for some. I manually deleted files out of the folder where the movie resides but that didn't change anything. Where can I fix this and how can I set it to grab the correct metadata and artwork. I label all episodes in this fashion - Show/Seasons/S01E01. Any help would be appreciated. Love the new design!
  8. Emby is not properly reading all ARTIST tags for MP3 files. FLAC files are okay, seems to be only MP3 files. Not sure what causes this, but I tag MP3 and FLAC files the same in mp3tag and MusicBee, with an ARTIST tag for each artist on the track: Title: Believe ft. Big KRIT (DatPiff Exclusive) Album: Before The Box Album Artist: David Banner Artist: David Banner Artist: Big K.R.I.T. When FLAC files are tagged this way with multiple artists, the artist tag is treated as a list and all artist are recognized individually. However, it seems like Emby can only read the first ARTIST tag from MP3 files. This means that any featured artists do not get indexed, and any MP3s they are tagged on will NOT show up on under the "appears on" section for the artist page. Here are the tags viewed in Mp3tag:
  9. Hello, After previously working through some issues with Genre Cleaner re: movie genres, I've since moved onto polishing up my music library. For whatever reason, a handful (maybe 40-50) songs/albums showed up under a genre category which did not appear on the actual file's "details" genre properties within Windows Explorer. Some of these categories remained even after running Genre Cleaner. Nevertheless, I've gone through the process of manually editing the individual albums/files to achieve the desired results. This effort has generated a broader question for MBS: How do I lock a specific metadata category within an entire folder (music album, music genre, entire music folder, etc) to prevent future alterations via library refresh/internet downloaders for metadata? For example, as described in the first paragraph, I would like to "lock" the music genre category for all of my existing music, particularly before I attempt to download any of the additional missing metadata (ex: artist images). I've spent over a decade trying to classify my music into genres for playlist listening purposes and I'd hate to have all of that work washed away with one simple refresh of the music library. From what I can tell, it appears that locking a folder for a specific metadata category does not appear to lock the same metadata category for that folder's subfolders. For instance, if I have a music album folder with 10 songs within it, toggling the album's "genre" category to lock will NOT then result in the album's individual songs being locked for "genre." This premise is similar for TV shows and their seasons, or the seasons and individual episodes, and so on and so forth. Sorry for the long explanation, I just wanted to make sure I'm not entirely missing the boat here in case there is such a setting that I've overlooked. If not, I think this would be a huge request for a "wish list." Please advise. Thanks!
  10. I have a couple of sports related libraries with matches I've recorded from TV, when setting them up in libraries I have the library set to use 'Thumbnail Images' (Generate video preview thumbnails = 'as a scheduled task and when media is added'), I can see this works great in the 'Chapters' part of an entry (ie a match) but the screenshots aren't used for the entry itself, instead the main image for the top level item is used (see screenshot attached). The absolute ideal scenario would be to be able to select one of the chapter images as the main image for the entry or, if not that then, to click a button in 'Images' that will show a few screenshots to select from. Thanks
  11. I'm trying to update the Cover photo of some albums because some of the automatic album covers taken from metadata are not good quality. This works fine for most albums but there are some albums that when updating the album cover, the individual song covers stay the same because each of them has its own cover still set to the previous one. Any way I can update all songs in an album to the custom Album cover that I've set without having to go through each song and change its cover individually?
  12. In my plugin I have successfully implemented Movie and Series Providers without any issues based on the examples from the Anime plugin. Now I am trying to do the same for people with no success. I have tried it first by implementing IRemoteMetadataProvider and when that didn't work I tested ILocalMetadataProvider also with no success. While debugging with breakpoints on the GetMetadata and GetSearchResults methods it seems like they are simply never called. Not while adding a person, not while manually refreshing the metadata and not while using the identify search. For reference these are my classes, stripped down to the minimum for testing: IRemoteMetadataProvider class MediaServerDBPersonProvider : IRemoteMetadataProvider<Person, PersonLookupInfo> { private readonly ILogger _log; private readonly IHttpClient _httpClient; private readonly IApplicationPaths _paths; private readonly IDirectoryService _directoryService; public static string provider_name = ProviderNames.MediaServerDB; public string Name => "MediaServerDB"; public MediaServerDBPersonProvider(IHttpClient httpClient, ILogger log, IDirectoryService directoryService, IApplicationPaths paths) { _httpClient = httpClient; _log = log; _directoryService = directoryService; _paths = paths; } public Task<MetadataResult<Person>> GetMetadata(PersonLookupInfo info, CancellationToken cancellationToken) { return Task.FromResult<MetadataResult<Person>>(new MetadataResult<Person>()); } public Task<IEnumerable<RemoteSearchResult>> GetSearchResults(PersonLookupInfo searchInfo, CancellationToken cancellationToken) { return Task.FromResult(Enumerable.Empty<RemoteSearchResult>()); } public Task<HttpResponseInfo> GetImageResponse(string url, CancellationToken cancellationToken) { return _httpClient.GetResponse(new HttpRequestOptions { CancellationToken = cancellationToken, Url = url }); } } ILocalMetadataProvider public class MediaServerDBLocalPersonProvider : ILocalMetadataProvider<Person> { private readonly ILogger _log; private readonly IApplicationPaths _paths; public static string provider_name = ProviderNames.MediaServerDB; public string Name => "MediaServerDB"; public MediaServerDBLocalPersonProvider(IApplicationPaths appPaths, ILogManager logManager) { _log = logManager.GetLogger(Name); _paths = appPaths; } public Task<MetadataResult<Person>> GetMetadata(ItemInfo info, IDirectoryService directoryService, CancellationToken cancellationToken) { return Task.FromResult<MetadataResult<Person>>(new MetadataResult<Person>()); } } One thing I noticed is that while for Movies and Series the used providers depend on the configuration of the library, the providers used for people seem to have a different configuration as even with all remote providers disabled in the library emby is still fetching remote metadata for people. So maybe I need to configure my provider to be used for people somehow? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  13. So I added a new series to the server for my two young sons to watch. When logged in on their profiles, the saeries is not displayed - that's because their profiles restrict content based on the rating. great, that works. When I look at the series, I see the parental rating applied is KR-ALL. Being in the UK, anything other than GB-U or GB-PG is not allowed on their profiles. Again, good, all is working. however, when I go to amend the parental rating, I change the series rating to GB-U thinking this will cascade from the highest level down through both seasons and all episodes. Nope. I then have to go to each season and change that perental rating and then each and every single episode. Even using the metadata manager this is panful as Ican't select multiple items... Please tell me I did something wrong and should have done X instead to change all values simultaneously... Tl/DR - changing the parental rating of a TV series doesn't cascade to all items below it and using the metadata manager is painful without allowing multiple selections.
  14. Hi, Some of us listen to classical music and maintain extensive collections of it. Unfortunately, proper classical music sorting requires different metadata fields than pop music. For example, the composer field is not very important with pop music, but is a big requirement with classical music. Currently, Emby supports a single content type for music, which is tailored for pop music. It has views to list Artists, Album artists, Albums, Songs and Genre. I propose to create a second content type dedicated to classical music. This would be a very coherent move since there already are distinct content types for movies, series, concerts or home movies, even if they all deal with video files. The views of this new content type would better fit classical music: for example, we would be able to list music by composer or by conductor, but not by song as this does not mean anything in classical music. Furthermore, audio metadata support should be improved. Currently, Emby supports the Composer tag. That's great, but not enough to deal properly with a classical music collection. We need to support a bunch of other tags, like the Conductor, Performer and Orchestra tags. Adding support for such tags should not be very difficult, as many of them are part of the official ID3 specifications and already supported by ffprobe. Classical music support is a very important feature for me and some other people. So important that I would even pay to have it added to Emby. If I can help to build it, I would do it very happily. If developers do not wish to add those features, maybe it could be implemented by a 3rd-party plugin. In that case, could someone point me towards some kind of guide or tutorial to get started ? I know C# and .Net but have no idea about how Emby works with plugins, and how to extend the metadata schema. Thanks! Marin.

    Metadata default language

    Hi, I have a quick question and couldn't find any information. Is there an option to set a default language for metadata, if no data for the language set for the library is available? In my case I have set the library language to German, but theTVDB does not have German content for all the episodes yet and currently Emby is not showing any information. In this case I'd like Emby to pull the English content, but it seems that this is not possible or am I missing something? Thanks.

    Audiobooks not showing properly

    The structure is /Audiobooks folder/Book name/ and here the files are 1- Book name - Chapter 1 2- Book name - Chapter 2 ... 8- Book name - Chapter 8 What am I doing wrong here? As you can see the chapters are not showing up, and it looks like it is reading just the chapter 8.

    Metadata Problems - Audio

    Aloha community, one giant emby noob speaking, and so I have a problem. I hope I am in the right place and find an answer here, if I missed crucial details in order to find a solution please tell me, if should post somewhere else tell me too! So I want to set up Emby as my primary media player on OS X and IOS and started playing around with it. I set up my NAS with the server and whatnot and then started pulling some audio onto the server to see if Emby recognizes it. It does. But. The folder is called 20syl and emby does not want to make an artist out of it. Shows up under the Album (unclickable), but not in the artist section. So I pull out my ID3 Tag Editor to see if there is something wrong with the file. Nope. What's happening? Other artists work kind of fine. I had some problems with special signs like accents in french titles but hey. You cant have it all.. But! My guess is that the number in the beginning causes Problems but what can I do to make this work? I'd be extremely happy if somebody could tell me a way of correctly preparing files for Emby so that it reliably works. Sorry if this might be an old question but i couldn't find any valuable information concerning this topic. Thanks in advance! EDIT : I noticed that when i try to edit the metadata in emby it doesnt show an artist or an album artist as well. When i write it down and save it just says okay but nothing happens. When i reopen the section its gone. Refreshing metadata via the 3 points does nothing as well.

    Reorder metadata sources

    Hello. I am using current version of Emby. Is there any way to change order of metadata sources? I've seen order settings on screenshots of old version, but I can't find this options in current verion.
  20. Hello! Meta doesnt appear to be pulling. Been like this for the past couple days. Nothing has been touched on a server level. We did recently update to a new mesh wifi recently, but no issue accessing the server both onnet and offnet The screenshot below is how it pulls when new media is added. Odd Thomas is the only one that pulled a cover, but no actual meta. The rest all look just as you see it. I ran a fresh debug. Any assistance would be phenomenal. Thanks!!! embyserver (1).txt
  21. Hi, I'm an Emby user since 2 or 3 months ago. Still experimenting on some things, but I'm already on a production scenario, with hundreds of items. I've spent a lot of time customizing metadata for single items, and such. As I'm an Emby Premiere user, I'm using the Emby Backup plugin to backup everything in case of disaster. However, I've read recently on other similar posts, and later I confirmed according to the wiki here: https://support.emby.media/support/solutions/articles/44001159936-backup That the Emby Backup plugin does not backup metadata at all. According to the wiki, it's recommended to store local metadata to media folders. Until now, I just didn't use this option because I didn't want Emby to have write access to my media library. So I prefered to let Emby save metadata in its internal database, and use the Emby Backup plugin to backup the data. But given that metadata cannot be backed up this way, I can switch to store it on local media folders. In case I want to enable the option to store metadata to media folders, how would be a safe way to do the migration? Is it enough enabling the option "Nfo" on each library? Should I also enable the "Saving pictures on media folders"? (Sorry I have my Emby on Spanish and I'm translating the option, not sure if it's named that way). I guess I should enable both if I want it to store all metadata on the library, with its info/plots/customized artwork items, etc... And more importantly, I already have lots of valuable customized metadata for my libraries. What will happen when I enable this option to store metadata on library folders? Will Emby migrate all existing (emby-database) metadata to the nfo format and store it to the correct place on my library? I don't want to lose customized posters, etc... so I want to make sure it will save my existing metadata instead of downloading it again from the scrappers. And well, in case the migration is not a safe process, is there any other way to make this migration? And in case there is no other way, is there any good way of backing up the folders where emby stores this data? I guess images are stored as files and other metadata is stored in a specific table on a database? I'm guessing alot here, but shouldn't it be possible to automate some type of reliable backup copying the folder and making a dump of the table where metadata is stored? In case it matters, I'm using Emby on a Synology x86-64 NAS. I kow I'm asking lots of things here. Thanks for any attention you give. Congratulations for this great software. I hope it gets better and better over time. Sincerely,
  22. Hi all, I’m looking to copy all the metadata from my server to a new second server, all file/paths will remain the same. The issue is though that I want both servers to remain running. I’ve tried copying the whole /var/lib/emby folder, and while that works fine to copy the metadata, it glitches out the server if both the original and copy are running at the same time. I can’t remove emby premiere from just one for example, and emby connect starts disconnecting users. I assume there’s some unique server identifier that distinguishes between servers or something like that. Is there anyway I can modify the the copy of my emby server so that it’s recognized as a new independent server by emby connect/premiere?
  23. It has been a few days since Emby for the "Majo no Tabitabi" series hasn't been able to recognize her. He finds it as "Kiki home delivery" of 1989 (studio Ghibli). I tried everything, changed the name of the folder from "Majo no Tabitabi" to "Majo no Tabitabi (2020)" to "The Journey of Elaina" to "Wandering Witch The Journey of Elaina" but nothing. Even putting the ID series from AniDB (15202) / TheTVDB (371436) and telling him to replace all meta and images, he keeps leaving this series (leaving only the right logo and backgrounds but everything else is wrong). Unfortunately I cannot change the name of the file (mkv) which is "[Erai-raws] Majo no Tabitabi - 07 [720p] .mkv" because this is automatically downloaded from qBittorent and automatically seeded in the folder that emby uses. Basically I created a folder (which we will call Seed) where there are the various series in progress and each contains the episodes as they come out (via RSS on qBit). Seed > Series 1 > Season 1 > Episode1.mkv Series 2 > Season 3 > Episode5.mkv Such a thing. To be clear: Jujutsu Kaisen; I'm stading; Tonikawa; King's raid; Danmachi 3; Sleepy Princess in the demon castle; they use the same nomenclature ([Erai-raws] Series Name - 07 [720p] .mkv) and do not have this aforementioned problem. Procedure for forcing identification (which then fails): How it comes out (here by now I have already tried to force majo no tabitabi and in fact the logo and backgrounds are right). identify (first attempt only using name) Result: find kiki instead of majo. This time I use the ID series from TheTVDB (it's better for meta than AniDB): good, found it (😆): So I tell him to use him and replace EVERYTHING ... Result, he hasn't changed a damn thing: To be clear, I have Italian as my preferred language and country language for the library in question. I also tried with AniDB ID and AniList ID but it doesn't update the meta. I also tried to delete the series (then re-download the episode) but it always finds that series. Thank you in advance. (I notice that compared to 6 - 8 months ago, Emby has made good progress compared to Plex which is really too reclining).

    MetaData issue

    For some reason my Metadata is no longer pulling from any sources. example below. Wonder Woman, the screen cap 1 shows the correct info for themoviedb but even after refreshing and choosing replace image it just shows what is in the other two screen caps any help would be appreciated, just happened this week.

    Music metadata issues

    I'm having issues importing my music library. I don't have a list, but there are lots of issues with incorrect meta-data. Just to start with an example, I have a ton of random artists showing up as having "3 doors down" as the artist and album artist (see image below of library). I've checked the metadata with ffprobe and mp3tags and none of the tracks I see list 3 doors down anywhere (mp3tags screenshot of one track below). I've tried deleting and re-importing the library several times, and the issue persists. I think I was able to get 1 album to correct itself by just re-writing the tags with picard, but I don't understand why that did anything since I can't figure out what metadata emby is seeing that is grouping this artists together under an unrelated artist.
