  1. Hi, I have the complete series of "Homicide" on my Emby server with the following naming convention: Homicide - SXXEXX - title.mp4 (with each season in a separate directory) under the TV/Homicide directory. All is working well. But, there are a few Law & Order cross-over episodes (that is, the story starts in a Law & Order episode and concludes in a Homicide Episode, or vice versa). I have the Law & Order episodes as separate mp4 files and would like to include them in the Homicide listing. I tried doing the following: Homicide - S06E05 - Baby, It

    TV Show Naming

    Hi, I am saving episodes of "Homicide Life on the Street" as individual MP4 files ripped from the DVD. I am using the following naming convention: Homicide - S01E01 - episode name.mp4 The issue that I've run into is that the order of the episodes in the DVD is, according to the DVD, the order in which the producer intended, it is not the order in which they were broadcast. So, for example, one of my episodes is "Homicide - S01E03 - The Night of the Dead Living.mp4." But, that episode apparently was the ninth episode broadcast and the third episode broadcast was an epis
  3. In advance of the upcoming 4.6xx update on stable, I am trying to hoover up some of the known issues with tagging in my music library (I know I should have done these ages ago, but I have thousands of tracks and some stuff I ripped ages ago I didn't do a great job with and there's never enough time). Anyway, as part of this - I wanted to check the Wiki to make sure I was using the correct naming structure. There is nothing in the Wiki regarding naming multi-part music albums, althugh there is for the videos. I tried the advice there using albumname-cd1/tracks and albumname-cd2/tracks unde
  4. I'm currently dealing with the cartoon Animaniacs. Because of the way the TVDB lists this how, I have each episode split into segments. I have two questions based on this and hopefully one of them is possible: 1. Is it possible in emby to have these segments combined? For example TVDB EP 1,2 & 3 is actually S01E01 .. I think Plex calls this stacked naming 2. How flexible is emby with multi episode naming? If I were to combine these segments into full episodes, it would be based on the Wikipedia / IMDB lists. The problem with this is that the order doesn't correctl
  5. Hi, I would like to request that the requirements for TV Shows naming scheme to be more flexible. Today's naming convention required is: TV Shows / TV Show name / Season 0x/ Show Name - S0xE0x - title.ext Would be possible to allow for the same format but without the need of the Season folder? Example: TV Shows / TV Show name / Show Name - S0xE0x - title.ext And even better would be to just require that S0xE0x should be present on the filename. A few reasons to all
  6. i have been having trouble with anime series in particular like Naruto, dragon ball z and now black clover. upon reaching the 100th episode, emby no longer detected the episode, it appeared as some random serial number. so i changed the folder structure as it appears in IMDB, season 1 with 51 episodes, season 2 with 51 episodes, and season 3 empty since no episodes have aired for that folder yet. In emby i created a folder called ANIME SERIES with a tv category, then the folder structure for this series was ANIME SERIES_
  7. Hello: Emby Setup: >> I am using Emby Server with Kodi Leia 18.3. Issue/experience: >> When I add TV Shows to Emby Server (and tag them as TV Shows) all of my files are renamed with a "SxxExx" prefix convention. Emby Server also attempts to regroup my files by adding season folders/containers on the server. The naming convention and grouping structure then passes on to Kodi as is expected. >>What I would like is for my TV Show folder structure and file naming convention to remain the same as it is on my hard drive (unmodified), is there a way to do this? If n
  8. Hi, can anyone say whether TV episode numbering is case sensitive please? I've recently switched from OS X and Plex to Windows 10 and Emby (such a relief!) but all my current TV episodes are named in the following way: Show - s01e01 - Name of 1st Episode Show - s01e02 - Name of 2nd Episode ...etc. I've named them this way for trivial reasons I guess; that being I prefer how the lowercase 's' and 'e' look for season and episode, over the uppercase 'S' and 'E'. I've read the official wiki which explains how to go about naming TV shows and the only example of this way of naming shows t
  9. Hi, I was reading the wiki regarding naming convention and it suggests to create a single for sub-folder for each extra content (extras, specials, shorts, scenes, featurettes, behind the scenes, deleted scenes, interviews, trailers). I found really time consuming.. because I have to do rename a lot of files folder for each movie have... can I instead just use a single "extras" sub-folder and chuck everything in there? If so, please any con? Can I just leave them named with interview.mkv, cutscenes.mkv and so on? Thanks for any clarification
  10. I ran into an edge case in multi-version naming. I have 2 cuts of the film The Killing of a Chinese Bookie. Afaik, the cuts are only referred to as the 1976 cut and the 1978 cut. My naming is as follows: `The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976)/The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976) [1976 Cut].mkv` `The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976)/The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976) [1978 Cut].mkv` Emby is picking up the date from the version string and not from within the parenthesis. This also occurs when using the hyphen method for the versions. The result is that 2 separate films appe
  11. I currently use Plex and considering switching to Emby. I see that Plex uses a single movie folder with all the movies in it whereas Emby prefers separate folders for each movie. Can someone please elaborate on these two approaches and suggest if I should convert my existing library to separate folders for each movie?
  12. Dear Emby Team Quick question, I have created a new library called "my sports" where I want to keep major sports events like prior NFL Super Bowl playoff videos etc. I'm not sure of how to go about the naming convention so the metadata gets loaded accurately (like the case for movies or TV etc) Could you please give me some guidance on how I should lay out / name my sports videos? Many thanks Rob
  13. Hi all, Hope you're well Thanks for software I'm having issues using file splitting/stacking[g] I experimented with deleting file meta and "Locking items to prevent future changes" but files still appear out of order (e.g. part 1 after part 2) when I navigate into season views Please confirm my file name syntax is valid and that it's possible to use this naming feature with television (the docs are for movie)?: Curb Your Enthusiasm - s0e30 - Ricky Gervais Meets Larry David - 2006-01-05 - part 1.mkv Curb Your Enthusiasm - s0e30 - Ricky Gervais Meets Larry David - 2006-01-05 - part

    Music Videos - File Naming

    A quick question as I am a bit confused by Music Video file structures. I am sorting out my music videos on my server and I think I have it right in that the music videos are stored in a Music Video share on the UnRAID server as: Server/Music Videos/artist name/artist name - track name.ext Example Server/Music Videos/ABBA/ABBA - Dancing Queen.mp4 And all other ABBA videos are in the same folder. The Share is listed as a Music Video folder in Emby. However, what do I do for my music videos that are in *.VOB format? These are under a VIDEO_TS folder Do I put them
  15. Hey there! Since there are multiple plugins, which can help you to manage your library like map your Genre to another one or fix any missmatch, is there anything like that for the age rating? E.g. if I would like to map all not rated movies to my maximal age rating 18, than I have to enter into every metadata of every movie and change it myself? Or is there a easy way to do it from the emby interface?

    Daily tv show naming not working

    I have a collection of a local tv show that runs daily (on weekdays). Suppose it's name is "Something Else", the episodes are named in the following order 1. Somthing_Else_0001.mkv 2. Somthing_Else_0002.mkv 3. Somthing_Else_0003.mkv . . . I checked out https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/TV%20naming#by-date and saw that they could be handled if I name them in the following order 1. Somthing_Else_2015-12-14.mkv 2. Somthing_Else_2015-12-15.mkv 3. Somthing_Else_2015-12-16.mkv . . . However, when I tried that, Emby collected all of them inside an "Unknown Season" s

    Bluray NFO Location & Naming

    I wanted to check where the Bluray nfo file should be located & how it should be named. Originally, I had these as movie.xml files in the root folder of the movie. I've upgraded to nfo files and removed xml but having this as movie.nfo was not displaying or refreshing. Some searching around the forums & wikis found that this should be now called index.nfo under the BDMV folder. I've tried this but still no data will refresh/display. If I manually refresh to fetch new metadata from Emby Theater for example it creates a file <foldername>.nfo. So I renamed my original nf

    IPTV Live Recording naming scheme

    IPTV / M3U recording seems to be GREAT! So far. Installation is pretty straight forward. Adding the guide is pretty simple as well. What I am having problems is not really the recording. But i am having problems on the naming of the video. It shows the title of the of the recording great. But its not adding the episode or season or even the original air date. this is what I am getting for the current naming " Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs_20170912_14051430 " I am not sure sure the of the whole naming then the first part is the current recorded date. I am sure that it may have something
  20. Is there a way to name video files so that Emby will properly detect the episode number and the episode title? I have read through https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/TV%20naming but it mostly does not consider the episode title. If I use one of those conventions, then Emby does detect the episode number correctly, but I can't get it to display the episode title properly. It seems like Emby wants to detect the episode number and then use a remote database to look up the episode title to display. The problem is that I have some obscure shows that aren't in any database. The best I have co

    TV Episode Naming Incorrect

    Hi, I used iTunes before Emby and so have a TV episode structure in the form of /TV Show Name/Season 1/01 Episode Name.m4v according to https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/TV-naming#episode-naming-conventions it should be okay, to have episodes named just with episode number and episode name. But it's not working that way. I have the file “The Expanse/Season 2/06 Paradigm Shift.m4v” which results in Emby as an episode named “06 Paradigm Shift” with season number 2 and episode number field blank. So Emby doesn't recognize the “06” as episode number but part of the title. Wh
  22. I was thinking it would be a good feature to change the way Emby is naming movies when they are recorded. From: Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde (long alpha numeric character string).ts To: Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde (1941).ts The year information is available in the metadata. What do you guys think? Thanks for reading and considering!

    Problems with local IPTV lists

    Hi, I have some problems with LIVE TV. 1º - If i add a channel to a local iptv list (m3u) i cant get channel in my server until i remove and add again. Is that correct? Is that the only way yo refresh a m3u list? 2º - I have a list like this: #EXTM3U #EXTINF:-1 channel-id="100" channel-name="channel ABC" tvg-logo="http://some.logo.link.100.png"group-title="groupA",channel name http;//some.stream.link.100.m3u8 #EXTINF:-1 channel-id="101" channel-name="channel DEF" tvg-logo="http://some.logo.link.101.png"group-title="groupA",channel name http;//some.stream.link.102.m3u8 #EXTIN

    Possible filename problem

    Hello, I found another problem. Some of my files simply will not play when I use the app to send them to chromecast. They do play fine in the app and the webview though. I suspect it happens if the files have special characters like ? or : . Some examples of filenames that will not play: Re: Life in a different world from zero - s01e01.mkv Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto - s01e01.mkv There are no errors in the normal logfiles. However if I force transcoding I DO get errors. Adding an example log here. transcode-00db808c-d507-4f1f-8759-f33bd77f243b.txt
  25. Hi. What I'm using emby is for mostly hollywoods movies, some american TV shows, and many Japan Animes, Korean TV shows. The problem is, the TV contents other than USA's are not recognized good enough by current TV episode naming conventions (https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/TV-naming) even though metadata system works very well with correct season/episode numbers. Here's the example: - An.American.Show.S01E04.PROPER.720p.HDTV.x265.AnonymousRelease.mkv -> Season 1, Episode 4 (OK) - [AnonymousRelease] A Japanese Anime - 05 RAW (TX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4 -> Season 12
