I have my media in a read-only folder... and it is named correctly, but emby seems to think it can look up the metadata and it fails. eg, Marvel_The_Avengers_3D => SAW 3D. Is there a way to say "just show me the filesystem for this library"?
Greetings. Recently noticed that recording Live TV was no longer functioning. I changed the file path from a network name to a mapped drive name, and it started working again, same folder as before just different path. However. Now I have 2 recording folders on the home screen. One has a random file in it that cannot be deleted, and the other contains all the new recordings. As the admin, I am the only account who can see both folders. All users who have access to this feature can only see the now useless original folder. I have reset the DVR path to blank and saved, manually deleted all folders, rebooted server. This results in the loss of the functioning folder, but the now useless original folder remains and can't be removed. Thoughts?
I currently have my Emby media stored across multiple drives. When initially setting up Emby I read here on the forums that is preferable to have direct file paths set and then use the path substitution feature, I think it was to allow for direct playback. All is working well this way but now I need to replace the hard drives, I would like to do this with fewer, larger capacity drives which means some of the media cannot be in the same location as it was before. Is there any way to change the file paths of certain media folders but retain all of the downloaded meta data for those files. For example on Plex this was achieved by adding the new file paths while keeping the old ones, forcing a re-scan whereby it would match the old metadata to the new file locations, then removing the old, now obsolete, file paths. I believe if I had my metadata stored as NFO files in the media folders this would be possible? However I do not do this as I prefer to keep my metadata on the solid state boot drive for better performance as the media drives are not constantly spinning (the server auto sleeps). Thanks in advance for any and all assistance.
