    New Library type: "Showcase"

    I've been mulling over a new library type that would be great for a couple different content types that I feel the existing types don't cover properly, such as standup comedy and documentaries, as well as allow for users to make custom presentation arrangements & accommodate for non-standard stuff that might not even be scrapable too. I call it the "Showcase" type. In the attached pictures I have made mockups of how this would work. A library set to this type would collect its contents and then display them in rows similar to how Emby shows the recently added on the web interface frontpage already, with content arranged by the names of the folders that are the first tier in the library. IE: if the library is laid-out like this: Library\ -Root Folder 1 --Subfolder A ---FileA1 ---FileA2 ---FileA3 --Subfolder B ---FileB1 --File1 --File2 --File3 --File4 --File5 -Root Folder 2 --File1 --File2 --File3 -Root Folder 3 --Subfolder 1 ---FileA1 --File1 --File2 --File3 The library would be flattened to the first tier, with display scrollers showing: Root Folder 1 FileA1, FileA2, FileA3, FileB1, File1, File2, File3, File4, File5 Root Folder 2 File1, File2, File3 Root Folder 3 FileA1, File1, File2, File3 (for this example, assume that the files are chronological) Files in each foider scroller would be listed chronologically, or alphabetically if chronological data is not available. Some of examples of how this could be used: Standup Comedy Allie Wong Special 1, Special 2 Anthony Jeselnik Special 1, Special 2 Eddie Murphy Special 1, Special 2, Documentary 1 Richard Pryor Special 1, Special 2, Special 3, Documentary 1, Documentary 2, Movie 1, Movie 2, Movie 3 Hallmark Movies Garage Sale Mystery Title 1, Title 2, Title 3, Title 4, Title 5, Title 6, Title 7, Title 8, Title 9, Title 10 Jesse Stone Title 1, Title 2, Title 3, Title 4, Title 5, Title 6, Title 7, Title 8, Title 9, Title 10 Murder She Baked Title 1, Title 2, Title 3, Title 4, Title 5 SenatorIvy's Library of Random Approved Stuff Ivy's Top 3 Event Horizon, The Thing, Jaws Sharktown Jaws, Jaws 2, Jaws 3, The Shallows, 47 Meters Down, 47 Meters Down Uncaged, The Reef, Tintorera Family Movies file1, file2, file3, file4, file5, file6 Ivyland Favorites Movie 1, Movie2, Movie 3, Movie 4, Movie 5, Movie 6, Movie 7 Documentaries People Documentaries 1,2,3,4,5 Music Documentaries 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 Movie Documentaries 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 Wrestling WCW 1,2,3,4,5,6 WWE 1,2,3,4,5,6 -- Miscellaneous Safety Videos 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 Old 80s Garbage Shorts 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 Faces of Confused Elderly 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 Hopefully this makes sense and seems like a good idea; I have multiple libraries where this display format would make things much more presentable and easily browsed, as I'm sure others do as well.
  2. Hello, I already have a Movies library for 1080p content however, I would like to add another Movies library for UHD (4K) content. Currently, if I create another Movies library with the title, UHD Movies, each UHD movie that also has an identically titled counterpart in the original Movies library for 1080p content shares the same play status progress and subsequently, 2 thumbnail images are displayed on the homescreen under the Continue Watching heading. One which is linked to the 1080p movie, and another for the UHD movie. Is there any way to disassociate the movie libraries by creating a library content type for us called 4K Movies or UHD Movies that will contain it's own unique play state information? Or, allow us to name our own content type to create the split which we will also then select it's parent content type from the existing list. Many thanks

    Trying to figure out Content Types

    Hi, I'm new to Emby and am trying to figure out the best way to setup my libraries. I'm confused with the exact purpose of each content type. The page in the support area doesn't give details of each content type and the file types considered by each one. Particular, I didn't understand mixed content. But other content types that seemed more obvious didn't work as I expected. My current issue is this. I have a Synology NAS and under video folder I have other subfolders like this: /video /Movies /Series /Courses /Movies for Children I setup Movies and Movies for Children with content type Movies. That's easy. Under courses, I have one folder for each course and most of these folders have video files for each class as well as mp3 file for each class. I want to setup a library called Course Videos that will include only the video files from each course folder and another library called Course Audio but with only the mp3 files for the classes. Course Video was setup as Movies and it worked, but when I setup Course Audio with music type, it didn't include any audio file and it did include the video files. Content type "Mixed content" didn't work either. My course folder is organized this way: /Courses /Course name A 1.class.mp4 (or other video ext.) 2.class.mp4 3.class.mp4 1.class.mp3 2.class.mp3 3.class.mp3 /Course name B ... ... /Author /Couse name C 1.class.mp4 (or other video ext.) 2.class.mp4 3.class.mp4 1.class.mp3 2.class.mp3 3.class.mp3 /Course Name D ... ... Will my course libraries (video and audio) work as expected with the above folder structure? Which content type should I choose for video and audio course libraries? For some courses, there are pdf files for some or all the classes in the same folder too. Should I use content type Book? Btw, how does content type Book work? What kind of file does it look for? Should I setup TV Shows for Series folder? If someone could give some instructions I'd appreciate. Thank you, Paulo
  4. Hi everyone I bought a seedboxplan and installed emby on it. The installation went flawless, and everything worked till i updated. From the moment i updated the library won't recongnise my movies if i chose 'movies' as content type. However, if I choose 'TV shows' as content type, emby recognizes them (that's how i know it ain't a permissions thing). Is there anyone having the same problem? I installed the latest stable version of the available Emby Server from the emby website on a Ubuntu Rapidseedbox, seedbox. Greetings, and thanks in advance!

    Add Sports Content Type

    Traditionally, I have used the Home photos & videos content type to classify my sports libraries to disable the Screen Grabber functionality. It was the only content type that had the features needed to properly control the library. As anyone who watches sports knows, seeing a random thumbnail generated in the sporting event can be a huge spoiler. This worked until I considered adding a real Home photos & videos library that I wanted to see the thumbnails for. I do not have a content type to classify these sporting events as that will disable the thumbnail/metadata generation. This is the sole reason I left Plex two years ago. They had no way to control thumbnail generation.

    Content type

    I have searched the Wiki but didn't come across anything useful for the below. How are other people handling documentaries? The only way I have been able to get my documentaries to be able to pull any metadata is if I make the content type "Movies", which works fine, but then it obviously puts the documentaries and movies together.
