    Collection Sorting

    I've seen this pop up a couple of times in some older threads but wanted to start a new topic on the matter. It would be nice to have another metadata field for collection sort title. This way you can have the original sort title in your main movie/music library, and then sort the media the way you would like within your collection. For instance Marvel movies in chronological order. If you sort them now naming wise it effects the collection and the main movie library.
  2. In order to organize better existing files I really think that the option in the new library section is missing the collections content type

    Collections Tab - Custom Bars

    Hey, Not sure if this is possible but would be really nice to have an option to have customizable tabs for the collections section, this would of course be only available through activating this through the backend, but once you active this option you would have a new bar that appears under the collections menu, i have included a photo below to kinda explain what i mean as you can see above, you would have set tabs under the main collections menu where you would be able to hand pick what collection would go where, this doesn't have to be done with all collections as you would have a default tab with (view all) just incase you don't want to make a separate menu for each collection as these are already in a main collections area, the reason why i believe this would be a great idea this it would help to narrow down certain collections in your library and to help with navigation for views, so if the admin chose to he/she could put all the mavel collections into a marvel studio tab where that would then show all collections with marvel, still keeping to the same layout that it has now but just showing marvel collections ie spider-man | avengers | ant-man| iron man and so on or show case a certain collection like the fast & furious and just show the films in that collection, but have them show like they would do when you have already clicked on the fast & furious collection so it shows just the movies not the collection and then having to click into it to view all the films. rule for this to be set would be say if a custom menu has only one collection in it show all the movies for that menu, for more than one collection show it like it already does in the collections area. ( i will include another photo to explain this better) p.s very tiered when writing this lol if this is possible to do i would also have the option to set a photo for the menu and option to hide menu titles as well to simplify things.

    Collections have disappeared!

    Ever since the latest updates my Collections have disappeared from My Media. How do I restore them, if possible? Thanks in advance, Bill

    New User

    Hello. I'm net to Emby after Plex proved too frustrating and the people running it aren't much help. I have a couple of questions: Is there a way to turn off auto-generated Collections? It's kinda ridiculous to have dozens of collections created whether I want them or not. If not, is there a way to delete them all instead of going through them one at a time? Is it possible to hide the song list under individual artists? I'd rather just see the albums. Also is it possible to change the sort order for albums listed under an artist? Thanks.
  6. Hello Community, I was hoping someone else is having a similar problem and perhaps know the reason why after the second to last update of Emby, my collections vanished (both user created, and those generated by the box set plugin). At first I thought it had to be ownership/permissions had become muddled, but all other writes are allowed (updates to metadata, metadata refreshes on intervals, favourites) Here is a breakdown of my formerly working setup: Emby running on Docker - app folder in home directory to utilize the SSD benefit. OS: Fedora 33 - kept up to date daily Docker image is from Linuxserver.io (I chose that image to keep things in line with my other services, and ease of setup Permissions are defined in the docker-compose file for PGID:1000 (logged user) and GUID:973 (docker) however i've also tried chowning the permissions to 1000:1000 in both the .yaml file and filesystem in keeping with linuxserver.io's standard setups.. No joy as of yet.. I'm copying a backup of the emby appdata folder to backup in an attempt to start fresh, if that doesn't work i'll restore and hope that either emby, or the image provider figures it out. One thing worth noting, while I can't make a collection, the Boxset plugin CAN, and I can add and remove from them, if I try to create my own it circles out. I'd really prefer to keep my watched status. not so much for me, but my elderly parents (also my main reason for fighting with collections, so I can narrow down content for them) so I was wondering if the community can : 1) Diagnose what might have happened to either the config or the docker image (last two versions, first time lost all collections, I tried backing up the collections folder and starting new, no joy. or 2) If I create a new instance, which folders to keep so my 2 users keep their watched status. I don't mind rescanning metadata and tailoring the layout again. Any help would be appreciated, I hope I gave the community enough information, so as to not waste your time. Thank You, Ray.

    Collections groups

    Hi all Is it possible to create several collections folders/blocks? Usecase for this i want tv channels to be grouped in on groups, e.g. news, entertainment, films, etc. and films in another group. Spoiler: on version 3.5.x i excidentally created collection and collection1, while UI was lagish and I tried to add the first tv to collections( no collection exsited at that time) - by presssing button twice i deleted it - now regret
  8. Hi, When i am making a new collection with movies as admin, other users are able to delete the collection that i have made. Is there a option that they can't? I also read about the parent control.... Anyone? Thanks

    Interconnected TV Series

    Maybe I'm just not seeing the correct set of options, but here's the issue I'm dealing with: A user wants to watch all of the "Arrowverse" shows, which include Arrow, Flash, Supergirl and Legends. At several points in those series, they overlap and cross-over. So the order in which the episodes should be watched is based on the premiere dates of episodes in ALL of these series, not just one of them. (It occurs to me that another historical example would Buffy and Angel...) At first glance, it seems this calls for the introduction of something similar to the Collections in Movies, so that related series can be identified, and the "Play All" option would switch between series as needed to view content in the correct order. Am I wrong? Thanks for all the great work so far!
  10. Hola, quería preguntar si es posible en una futura version que incluyan lo siguiente en la vista de colecciones , poner el poster de las películas que no tengo de esa colección en Blanco y negro , para mostrar que no lo tengo . pongo un ejemplo. muchas gracias,, tienen una excelente aplicación ojalá pronto pueda comprar el premium Bernardo
  11. Hi there. I migrated server a few weeks ago and only recently noticed the issue where all libraries were "mixed content". I noticed this because I was having issues with some movies I had re-added, weren't going into their collections. The issue with "mixed content" is a known issue and has since been resolved. In my case, before I knew how to fix it, I re-created all my libraries. This has now complete, I removed all the old ones, uninstalled and re-installed the Auto Box set plugin. I'm still having a "Collections" issue. The issue is, I only have one movie in the "Matrix Collection". When I check their metadata in Emby I see: Movie Emby Metadata edit: TheMovieDb Collection Id: The Animatrix 2344 The Matrix 2344 The Matrix Reloaded 2344 The Matrix Revolutions 2344 I ran "Scan all library files" I ran "refresh box sets" in Auto Box Sets plugin I clicked each movies context menu in the library and clicked "refresh metadata" > Replace all metadata > Refresh Refresh metadata on Movies and Collections libraries ( "refresh metadata" > Replace all metadata > Refresh ) Any ideas? Thanks.

    Collections Duplicated?

    Weird one here. Any help would be appreciated. My Collections are Duplicating, but only under the Collection group. When I select Movies, the Collection only shows once. But, if I select Movies and then Collections, some are duplicated ( not all of them). Or, if I just select the Collections group I get the same thing. Here's a screen print. Top is from the Movies group. Bottom is from the Movies\Collections.
  13. Hi, So I am building a media library of workout videos. While many of them should really be entered as TV series (and behind the scenes I am making progress to let TVDB allow them), I was working a lot making entries at moviedb first. At moviedb for a long time they officially have supported this media type as long as one enters each workout video individually (as if it is standalone), but marked as a video. This works OK and you do get a nice poster for each video that people will photoshop to in a title to say what day it is (e.g. Leg day) - but it does mean that in Emby I have to set up a (movie) collection for each workouts series, and add each individual workout video into that collection (e.g. A Little Obsessed has 5 workouts). But when you get to something like 80 Day Obsession which has 80 videos, even though someone has entered them all individually in MovieDB, it is proving to be a PITA to manually create a collection in Emby for each of these. Since I'm planning on switching my Emby server from Windows (test box) to the Nvidia shield (in a few weeks, as my main Emby server) - I'd like to just create a collection in one of these 3rd party metadata database sites, and have Emby pull it all from there nice and clean. I did install the "Box Set Plugin" in Emby and I notice that it automatically put all the Star Wars movies into a collection without having me having to do anything! This is cool - except - Moviedb does not allow people to create "collections" in their database for anything but genuine movies themselves, and genuine sequels that are well known (e.g. Star wars 1-9). People who want to make a collection for things like all Marvel Universe movies have the same problem as I do. Moviedb says they are working on a solution for the Marvel Universe problem but it may take some time and even then it may only be allowed for genuine movies? Sorry for the long introduction to explain the problem, but does do any of you have a similar problem and an easy solution? is there some sort of "box-set" like plugin that doesn't rely on moviedb, or maybe somebody else runs an "unofficial" collections database that The Box Set / Collections plugin can link into?
  14. Hola, queria saber que posibilidades hay de saber las peliculas que me faltan de una coleccion, quizas que aparezca el poster en blanco y negro de las peliculas que no tengo... seria posible? gracias

    Doppelte Einträge in den Sammlungen

    Hallo zusammen, seit gestern habe ich in meiner Rubrik "Sammlung" meine Filme immer doppelt aufgelistet. In den jeweiligen Filmordner liegt aber nur eine Datei, entweder mkv oder mp4 sowie die jeweiligen Bild und Untertiteldateien. Wie bekomme ich es nun wieder hin, das die Sammlungen nur einmal angezeigt werden? Danke vorab für Eure Hilfe. Björn

    Vanishing Collections

    Problem on an Nvidia Shield Pro running Emby Server 4.4.3.0. Sometime over the past 72 hours all of the collections on my Emby Server webUI and TV UI disappeared: While they are missing from the UI, they are still in the "internal storage": The highlighted collection.xml file is attached, and the paths it contains appear to be correct: How do I get the server to recognize the collections again? collection.xml

    Collection Specials

    Hi, Is there any way to add special features to a collection? I have converted my Pink Panther collection and the special features are on the series rather than one film. I have the films in a general movies folder. Would it be easier to put them into a collection folder with a specials folder in that?
  18. I recently upgraded to latest emby server version 4.3.3.0 for linux 64bit. when using the emby for roku app to view my Collections, my photos are not displayed, only video content is shown. However, when using my web browser to access emby Collections i do not have this problem. is there an issue with Collections section in emby for roku app?
  19. When organizing my library I often have to move albums to another place in my directory structure. Sometimes there are only small spelling mistakes in the path, which have to be corrected. Is there a way to scan all collections [boxsets] for items with wrong/changed paths? Currently, items with wrong paths are simply not displayed (even they are still in the .xml). That's not nice and very confusing. One totally loses the overview, especially with a very dynamic library (lots of new and deleted paths). It would be totally sufficient if there would be tiny log file somewhere, so I can corrected the wrong items manually. Or a small tool/plugin, which just scans the collections for wrong entries. That would save a lot of time. I think this applies to the playlists equally.

    Move to Collection

    Hello. Using Emby (4.4.2.0) under Mint is it possible to move files to a collection, so they only appear in the collection? I have a large collection that would be dizzying trying to find any other newly added movies. thanks
  21. Emby Server Version: 4.4.2.0. Adding an artist to a collection, creates an entry in the collection.xml (that's ok), but within emby (at the frontend), only the other items are shown. (see attachment) Artists never seem to be shown in the collection. <CollectionItems> <CollectionItem> <Path>/share/Multimedia/Music/U/_Elektronik/_aab $ 5.1 Testfiles_#</Path> </CollectionItem> <CollectionItem> <Path>/share/Multimedia/x_config/_Emby Metadata/metadata/artists/Pearl Jam</Path> </CollectionItem> <CollectionItem> <ItemId>eca45125962e4582929d237ba5df03fb</ItemId> </CollectionItem> <CollectionItem> <Path>/share/Multimedia/Music/E/Crossover/_Max Richter ~GBR DEU~_#/2008 - Waltz With Bashir [OST]_#</Path> </CollectionItem> </CollectionItems> And: if there is only one artist-item in the colllection and no others, the whole collection is not shown. Artist entries are completely ignored. But the primary preview image automatically generated by emby shows the correct entries with the artist. This should be a bug. I somehow remeber this from previous versions. is the bug showing up again now? Please check.
  22. Has something changed with this? Seems like I can't add collections to collections anymore. I like making larger collections of franchises, Middle Earth Collection for instance (https://i.imgur.com/y17Jztl.png), Marvel Cinematic Universe (https://i.imgur.com/uJgeP2c.png), etc. But it seems like the add function is gone? Was this an intentional change, or am I missing something?
  23. Hopefully a quick question. I have a few custom collections that are no longer being displayed. I can still see the collection folders in the server data folder, and the collection.xml looks the same as other automatically generated collections. Without creating all the collections again is there a way to get them to display?

    Collections

    Quick, ?, I read the collection wiki, but which attribute or metadata in the the folder triggers emby to identify the contents as a '"collection" when initially scanned. Thx Bw
  25. I was adding movies to existing Collections that were incomplete and everything was working as expected. I tried to add "Major League: Back to the Minors". When I was directed to my Collections, it would only display Collections up to the letter "J" (see attached example), so I couldn't add it. I tried adding "Thor: Ragnarok" to my existing "Thor" Collection, however, I received the same results. If I go to my Collections without trying to add anything, all of my Collections are displayed. Any ideas on what went wrong or how I can resolve this? Thanks. Running HTPC: Windows 10 Client: Emby Theatre for Windows (latest version)
