  1. Problem Scenario: Episodes have the correct episode name/title but the wrong episode order or sequence. Issue: In these problem scenarios, Emby overlooks the correct episode name/title in favor of episode order/sequence and fetches/displays metadata as such causing the wrong episode names/titles to display in Emby. Feature Request: Implement an override mechanic (at the series level) that will match/fetch metadata of the episode filename(s) based on the episode's name/title listed with the metadata provider. Feature Request Design: When the override is enabled for a particular series, the episodes for that series will have its metadata fetched and displayed based primarily on the episode's name/title and would automatically sort it or sequence it based on that. This way if you're not certain (or know for sure) that there's a mismatch between the episode name/title, Emby would compensate using the override so the user doesn't have to manually rename all affected episodes from affected series' to match the episode listing from the metadata provider. Practicality: This would alleviate the need to match verbatim the episode names/titles and their corresponding ordering/sequencing by the primary metadata provider. Plus if you have to do renaming anyway; you could focus solely on the episode name/title instead of in addition to the episode order/sequence which would moderately decrease the amount of effort/time one would spend renaming episodes provided they already know what the names/titles should be for the episodes. Override Scenario 1: The filenames have pre-populated episode names/titles and ordering/sequencing but there's a mismatch with the metadata provider Override Scenario 2: The episode naming/title/ordering/sequencing from the physical source doesn't match the metadata provider (due to user error or listing mismatch with metadata provider) Application: Tv Show Library Content Types Why does this need to be Added? Depending on the source of the media, there are scenarios where information/metadata is pre-populated (showname, episodename, episodeorder, etc) for the filenames and instead of having to correct partially inaccurate or partially disordered filenames (even though though the episode name/title is verifiably correct), The user could click a box to enable this override for each series that fit the problem scenario and/or the override scenarios without having to re-name/re-title/re-sequence who knows how many individual episodes
