As far as i know emby is capable of extracting images from series and movies. Especially on older tv series the images for episodes provided by the moviedb are often b*******. But because they exist, emby won't extract them from the media file and take the one from moviedb. Even if i delete them, emby won't extract an image anymore. I would highly appreciate to have a button to manually trigger the extraction of an episode image from media file. The same goes for music. Often the images embedded are better than the ones provided by audiodb. I would like to have a button to choose the embedded image over the one provided by audiodb. Thanks in advance!
jagrit007 posted a topic in Feature RequestsFirst of all, Love your work! Well I've seen how emby merges two different versions i.e by finding differences in the Filename. Like if file 1 is "Abc movie - 720p" and file 2 is "Abc movie - 1080p60". In such case it will merge both versions and give option to select either "720p" or "1080p60". What I propose is that in case file names are completely same, use resolution and birate from file metadata to give clear option to the user. I think I'm probably not making sense? Please check out the attached screenshot, it might be helpful. In that screenshot I have renamed the file to have resolution and bitrate but that's not that easy to do manually. but as emby has all the file metadata, it can use that and instead of splitting versions by Name, it should be done by the the resolution and bitrate got from the file metadata. ... and this is the file metadata I'm talking about: I think I made my point clear (._.') Thank you, Have a nice day!
Edit: As suggested by @ebr I have split my original request to allow better monitoring of interest and progress. I have added the link to each topic next to each Feature Request. If you are interested please discuss in each topic instead of this one. Cheers Hi everyone, I know some of the comments here have already been put forward somewhere else in the forum, but I wanted to 1) centralise them and 2) give my vision on how the Photo Library could be improved. I have raised the point on Github as well, but I thought that it would be better the open a discussion here, so everyone could contribute. https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby/issues/3436 Just a bit of background before I start; I take a lot of photos with different cameras 1 small digital camera, 1 DSLR, 2 to 3 Smartphones (don’t ask :S ) especially when I travel and sometimes I even collect photos from friends that travel with me. All of this to say that I have a sh**tload of naming conventions for the files and I can’t just put them in a folder and expect these to be organised. This is where Emby takes place as I use it to organise and watch my photos. Everything is stored by Year\Month\Event\ (an event could be one single day or e few weeks trip if I am lucky). Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to display these in an organised manner: when I open the folder then I can’t have all the files sorted by date or anything else regardless of the filename… Hopefully there is a “simple” tool that has been helping photo enthusiasts which bring me to my first point: Make EMBY read and display the EXIF information from the files https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/63047-photo-library-make-emby-read-and-display-the-exif-information-from-the-photos/ This is the step one, I don’t know if this is already being used but it would be nice to be able to display the EXIF info on top of the photo being displayed. A bit like for the movies where we could display the data such as transcoding info, video size, framerate, etc. in a transparent box. This could contain Camera Make and model, Date photo taken, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, but also coordinates when available (which is often the case when using a smartphone), etc. Sort by EXIF https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/63048-photo-library-sort-photos-by-exif-information/ The next step would be to add the EXIF elements in the sorting options. This would allow us to sort our pictures by date taken (regardless of file name, camera, etc.) or by camera, aperture, etc. Timeline This would also make possible to create a timeline view that would display all the photos regardless of folders by only taking into consideration the date it was taken. This has become the norm for many photo app. In my comment in github I was referring to the standard W10 photo app, but this is also true for any smartphone app, and even Plex has done this now This has been already been suggested before: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/54947-pictures-library-filter-date-taken-timeline/ https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/55561-feature-request-for-browsing-photos/ https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/55688-timelineview-for-pictures-and-homevideo/ Map https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/63049-photo-library-photo-map/ I always wanted to have this feature! This is something that was offered by Flickr. It would use the coordinates where the picture was taken stored in the EXIF and display the picture in the world map. I think that this was a bit specific in the past because we needed to have a GPS module tied to the camera but now every smartphone does this out of the box (without even asking your permission). Here is an example from Flickr where each point is a picture that you can display when clicking on the point: Better video integration https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/63050-photo-library-better-video-integration/ I have noted that when I open a video from my picture folder, Emby doesn’t understand that it is part of the photo album and open it as a single file in the video player instead of the slide show. I think this should be seamlessly integrated into the Photo slide show. Face/Place/Scene recognition https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/63051-photo-library-faceplacescene-recognition/ Let’s push it further, why not including a face recognition that would allow us to sort our collection by people or by scene (city, sea, mountain, etc.) or by place based on GPS coordinates this could automatically name the place and allow us to search or sort based on this item. Anyway, that’s what have in mind for the Photo library module. I understand that there is so much to do elsewhere but I have always considered the Photo library as a core function of Emby. Right now, it is not really usable, I think the read & display EXIF info and sort by EXIF would be a minimum, the timeline is a nice to have and the map+Face recognition is beyond that. I hope this will get some interest and that it will be considered for the future upgrades. Do not hesitate to like the post to make it more visible in the forum What do you think?
When searching for subtitles in with the media manager web interface (edititemsubtitles.html) it would be nice if the media file name was shown. This would make it easier to select he correct subtitle according to the information given in the file name. The extracted media information available for the movie (itemdetails.html) could also be available in the subtitle search page (edititemsubtitles.html), to help if the information given in the filename is insufficient. Suggest the media information is normally hidden to keep the subtitle search page uncluttered.
