    Problems after installation

    Welcome I am trying to replace Kodi with Emby but I have problems I installed from the Emby repository and added write access to the user. Emby scanned the Library but found nothing about the metadata. Even if I enter the title or imdb id by hand, nothing is found either. Similarly, when I enter the plug-in catalog. No plugins appear. My server is DS412 +
  2. The ability to adjust the DISPLAY ORDER for PEOPLE in the Metadata editor of Emby Server would be useful. There are times when the lead actors in a series or movie are not listed near the top of the CAST sections of TheMovieDB or TheTVDB when they are grabbed. They can get buried later in the listings or at times you may have to go to the MORE section of ITEM INFORMATION page to find them. The current way to adjust for this is to go into the TVSHOW.nfo or MOVIE.nfo file and edit the SORT ORDER tag of the actors you want higher up in the listing. If possible, it would be useful if in the PEOPLE section of the METADATA EDITOR there were UP / DOWN selectors to adjust the display order. Similar to what is available in the HOME SCREEN SETTINGS section to adjust the LIBRARY ORDER.
  3. So, I've obtained second season (some call it second part of season 1) of `Chilling Adventures of Sabrina`. When I am trying to download metadata for it (actors, ep descriptions and so on) it fails to do so because Emby thinks its season 3 despite me clearly stating it is season 2. You might ask how do I know it? I know it because I manually set it to season 2, however it is automatically fetches wrong release date. Second season came out in 2019 but it insists it came 24 January 2020. I tried correcting `release date` and `year` fields manually both for season as the whole and specific episode, it is still fails to download metadata (such as episode description, name, actors). This is what I see when I replace metadata of the season: correctly deduced season number and incorrectly deduced release date; and this is what I get when looking at metadata of an episode: correctly deduced season/episode number and episode name from the future, episode also has same release date as the season so I didn't include it.
  4. Hi, I was using Plex but want to migrate to Emby, but I am having problems with missing items in my library. I have multiple drives with Movies and TV shows, all named correctly for example TV Shows: └── Black Mirror (2011) ├── Season 01 │ ├── Black Mirror - s01e01.mkv │ ├── Black Mirror - s01e02.mkv │ └── Black Mirror - s01e03.mkv ├── Season 02 │ ├── Black Mirror - s02e01.mkv │ ├── Black Mirror - s02e02.mkv │ ├── Black Mirror - s02e03.mkv │ └── Black Mirror - s02e04.mkv Unfortunately Emby did not identify all or added some as duplicates, I don't know.. For example, I have 413 TV Shows but in Emby I see only 412. How to find where is the problem? Is there some way to list all items in library with paths to files/folders?

    How to clear metadata cache

    Hello everybody and happy holidays, I'm looking for a way to manually clear the metadata cache. I want that because the tvdb scrapper gets outdated (wrong) episode information (episode title, description, airdate, etc.) from cache based on the correct filenames. As it seems the scrapper refers to the S00E00 part of the filename and ignores the following episode title (e.g. "S03E14 - Zwei linke Hände.mp4"). The result is, that "S03E14 - Zwei linke Hände.mp4" is displayed as "Glaube versetzt Berge" which is S03E20. I recently changed some information (episode numbers) in the tvdb database and verified that the API repsonses the new values. In particular, I changed the episode numbers: from 14 to 20: https://thetvdb.com/series/291180/episodes/6106291 from 15 to 14: https://thetvdb.com/series/291180/episodes/6179164 from 16 to 15: https://thetvdb.com/series/291180/episodes/6179166 from 17 to 16: https://thetvdb.com/series/291180/episodes/6179167 from 18 to 17: https://thetvdb.com/series/291180/episodes/6179168 from 19 to 18: https://thetvdb.com/series/291180/episodes/6218765 from 20 to 19: https://thetvdb.com/series/291180/episodes/6218772 I found a folder at /var/lib/emby/cache with several subfolders like "tmdb-movies" or "tvdb". Is it save to delete those folders without running into problems with? Cheers Lok1
  6. I am running Emby on an Unraid docker. I have a large library and have been using Emby Server for Windows for a while. I loaded up Emby on a new server build about 1.5 days ago. The library scan took some time, but it finished. I can see the names and metadata, but the images (posters) stopped download after a few movies and randomly after a couple of TV Shows. I attached the log below. Any help is appreciated. embyserver-63712293366.txt

    Metadata

    Hi, I'm using DS418 and mMy libray metadata is not working correctly for all movies. Just a couple of movies fetch the correct parent rating in portuguese M/12, M/16, ... all others fetch in English R, PG-13, ... Some movies won't get the rotten tomatoes rating while others do. All of them show the imdb rating. I'm just testing, but all the movies are recent. I've uninstalled the server and reinstalled it but the issue continues. Thanks
  8. Hey all, So recently I had to disable/remove and then reinstall Emby server recently on my Ubuntu box and now I appear to be having some odd issues with grabbing the proper images from TheTVDB. In the past if I updated & replaced the metadata on a series it would grab the newest images from TheTVDB (as all series are only set to grab from there). But now it seems it will only default to older series image, banners, backdrops, etc. no matter which way I try to refresh the meta data. I've also noticed that when I go to "Identify" a series, when I put in the TheTVDB ID in it brings up the series but shows it with no image attached, like it would in your library if there were no primary image attached. Previously it would show the image there, indicating that is what would be downloading with it I assume. My log is below. This was after doing a refresh & replace all meta data on my "TV Shows" library. Can anyone figure out why this is happening or maybe give me some suggestions on what to try with troubleshooting it? Feel free to roast me if I've done something stupid or missed something obvious. Thanks in advance! Log: https://pastebin.com/8iHfeUp6

    Metadata for Extras

    Hi, Metadata needs to be saved for extras, in order to be able to keep names and screengrabs when metadata is refreshed.

    Metadata/NFO/Artwork

    Quick question! Historically, I've always saved my metadata/nfo/artwork with my media files. More recently I have been experimenting with uploading my content to Google Drive through rclone. My question is, if it would be a good idea to continue saving the metadata with the media files (in this case Google Drive), or if it would be faster Emby experience if it was saved locally on the machine (in this case Nvidia Shield). The main reason I was thinking of saving it on Google Drive was because I will most likely have to update my media files as I expand my collection. For example, if I currently have a 1080p file and eventually purchase and upload the 2160p version, I will need to rename the files and metadata files as well as create folders for my content. My primary concern was internet speeds. My download speed is restricted 100mbps and even we are the only users, I wasn't sure if that would be fast enough to quickly load all the images on the front-end Emby app. Whereas if I were to save it locally on the server (Nvidia Shield), I would assume it would be very quick. I will be experimenting with this in most likely a month, but I wanted to get your experiences in the meantime.
  14. 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 4.1.1.0
  19. 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...
  21. 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.
  23. 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
  24. 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 4.0.0.2
  25. 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.
