  1. Hi All Hoping someone can help me - as to why "Artists" are not identifying properly - even though the artist metadata includes the MusicBrainz ID for the artist. Here is an artist page - that's not identified properly to obtain the artwork When I go to "More" and "Edit Metadata" - MusicBrainz ID on the artist is filled in correctly. https://musicbrainz.org/artist/00ef5e52-582b-4d53-a03a-bbd5b3084197 If I copy that MusicBrainz ID from the artist and use the "More" and "Identify" and paste it in, and search... I click on the match & say replace images... and then about 15 seconds later i get: Why isn't this doing this automatically? I don't want to have to identify them all manually... Is there something I'm doing wrong or is this a bug? Thanks!
  2. Hi I just installed Emby ( and can't get the identify function to work. It returns a blank page without results. My folder Structure is D:\Emby\Anime (Movies)\Evangelion 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo (2012)\Evangelion 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo (2012).mkv Automatic identification seems to work. Also, CanYouSeeMe.org doesn't detect my port yet wich is quite strange since I never had any Issues with Plex. embyserver.txt
  3. I have just reset Emby (running latest beta version), including removing nfo files, and now I am finding some episodes are not being identified, although the episodes are on TVDB Here is just one example: Star Trek The Next Generation - 1x15 - 11001001 (this is the way I have it named) TVDB: https://thetvdb.com/series/star-trek-the-next-generation/episodes/46522 Metadata is not being retrieved, inspecting the nfo file, no data is in there Tried, 'Search for Missing Metadata', 'Replace All Metadata' and have also tried a library scan (TV Series level and full) and also identify tv series The TVDBID, I manually added to see if it would help All other episodes in this series are being identified correctly I have attached latest server log and nfo file embyserver.txt Star Trek The Next Generation - 1x15 - 11001001.nfo
  4. When IDing a movie, the "Identify Item" dialog shows the unidentified title (if not identified), which is fine most of the time. But if the movie is misidentified, then it shows just the 'wrong' title, it doesn't show the original filename. So for movies that i'm not familiar with, like foreign films, etc, it means you have to return to the previous screen, scroll ALL the way to the bottom to then get the filename from the path. Could this filename/path be listed above the "Name:" field? The filename is the source of the identity of the movie.
  5. I'm trying Emby out as a somewhat disgruntled Plex user. Importing my library into Emby, I am seeing a TON of my collection not being identified. For example: /volume1/video/movies/Aladdin/Aladdin.bd - doesn't match anything. /volume1/video/movies/Terminator (series)/01.The.Terminator.1984.mkv - doesn't match anything. Plex got most of these right on the first try. Is there a way to make identify "try harder" in Emby?

    Failure to correctly identify movie

    The following passage comes from google translation First of all I'm sorry I'm not very proficient in English Recently some problems with my emby server The specific performance is that recently my server could not correctly identify the name and information of the movie Caused all my videos to become English names I have basically confirmed that the problem is caused by the recent Internet blockade in mainland China. So I would like to ask the following administrator How long can this glitch be fixed. Or can you provide the server IP address or domain name used to identify the movie. So that I can use VPN to connect with him. In order to allow you to understand the problem more intuitively. I provided some screenshots. The screenshot in Chinese is my previous screenshot when the server is normal. The screenshot in English is the one when I recognize the movie now Finally, I have adjusted the settings of the Emby server. Both are set to Chinese first. 文字 文档 点击图标下载 App Android iOS 检测到中文 英语 中文 德语 中文(简体) 英语 日语 Yǐxià zhè duàn huà láizì google fānyì shǒuxiān bù hǎoyìsi wǒ yīngyǔ bùshì hěn shúliàn zuìjìn wǒ de emby fúwùqì chūxiàn yīxiē wèntí jùtǐ biǎoxiàn shì zuìjìn wǒ de fúwùqì wúfǎ zhèngquè shìbié yǐngpiàn de míngzì hé xìnxī dǎozhì wǒ suǒyǒu de yǐngpiàn dōu biàn chéngle yīngwén de míngzì wǒ jīběn yǐjīng quèrèn shì yīn wéi zhōngguó dàlù jìnqí de wǎngluò fēngsuǒ dǎozhì de wèntí.

  7. Hello, I have noticed that in the latest releases my server is having issues identifying the movies, defaulting to IMDB which adds almost no info for my new movies added to the server, lacking good posters, banners and backdrops. When I search up the ID on themoviedb and then try to identify the movie in Emby I sometimes have to search 5-30 times for it to actually find the movie. I can browse https://www.themoviedb.org/ without any issues so I am not IP blocked/throttled. Under Metadata downloaders TheMovieDB is highest on the list. Anyone else having this issue? Example: The Nice guys got identified correctly, but not by themoviedb so no additional info is added. Movie only found by IMDB: Should look like this, after I had to manually identify the movie (Took 5 tries this time): Log.txt

    Question about firewall

    Ever since Update, I cannot identify any of my movies, search for plugins, or have the server automatically download Metadata. Server is having issues fetching plugin updates. I've tried to do some things myself such and reinstall Emby Server, remove OMDb and left TMDb. Searching in IMDB in Identify and get no results. Log file attached. Please Help.

    ipv6 causing request failures

    Need some help. Running emby on a vps under ubuntu 18.xx. Emby is up to date Identify is not working on movies. I have dl'd several movies from torrents and the names look like this 1917.2019.BRRip.AC3.x264-CMRG. Renaming the files is not an option due to seeding. I've tried going into identify and setting the title to 1917 and the release date to 2019 and get a blank page as a result. I've also tried doing this and adding the imdb#, just the imdb#, themoviedb# and all manner of combinations but get no results. I've rebooted emby and the entire system with no results. Both imbd and themoviedb are selected for the library. I haven't changed any settings so I'm not sure why it's not working. Any ideas? Thanks in advance
  10. Good Afternoon All. My installation of Emby has been solid for months but what is weird when a movie fails to be identified I simply choose 'Identify' enter the search and the correct information including picture is found and I then select replace and click ok and it usually updates and changes everything. But at the moment it goes through the motions but the image/data is still staying as the original information. I am failing to get it ti successfully update with the correct information it has found. Any ideas? Regards, Stuart

    Nfometadata issue Centos7

    Hello, I've noticed lately in Emby Server v. that when I add new music and try to use the identify feature, the images are not found. I went looking in the log and I see a few errors (see attached shortened log) that I don't quite know how to resolve. Any help would be appreciated. Let me know if you need any further information as well. log.txt
  12. I LOVE how identify allows us to paste in a TVDB id or IMDB id. That being said it is missing on missed content. When I have a folder that is just movies I can click Identify to fix mappings. When I have a folder that is just tv shows I can click Identify to fix mappings. when i have a folder that is missed content the identify is missing. Is everyone seeing this behavior or is it just my setup?
  13. Hello Team Emby, Could you add the ability to use the name of the folder, containing a single file, to identify a media file? Figured it's something Plex does, which makes some steps way easier for me and I miss that feature. Cheers
  14. Hi! Ok so I had to reinstall emby and rescan my database. On rescan, some of the movies did not identify. On the previous install, I set download images to folder, so now all that displays is the poster, logo, landscape, and fanart. I did notice, however, that the movies that did not identify all had the same naming convention: "Movie Title, The (Year)". I have no idea why this is happening, especially when other movies with the same naming convention did identify correctly. Can anyone please help me! Thank you. embyserver.txt
  15. If I add any new files to one of my Libraries it will not identify properly and pull down metadata. If I manually identify the files then it works fine. Running Version
  16. Lately the process to download images and metadata based on a successful manual "identify" is taking upward of 5-6 minutes, and the only client-side indicator is the spinning circle. Woudl it be possible to have more of a progress bar that shows the different stages? My suggestion would be - "searching" - Successfully Identified via [tvdb, imdb, etc] (or "failed to identify given search parameters" - Downloading Metadata - Downloading Cast Images - Downloading Cover art - Downloading Background (if applicable) - Populating.... ("Replacing Images" if checked)... Done! with a notification of a fail state and possibly the number of assets being downloaded (if the API for each individual site allows) Thanks
  17. New to this, I apologize in advance. I am running and can not locate the "Identify" selection I read it was a admin only function. Iam sure I am logged in as a administrator -regards John

    Identify Issues

    Emby Server Version on Linux Mint 19 Tried to search the forums and find a answer but nothing was quite clear and the word Identify doesnt seem to be unique enough. Just got done rebuilding my whole linux server as I was attempting to upgrade from the older repo provided emby to the new one and wrecked everything. There really should be warnings for that on the install page or something. Too many results just say run the new version over the old one. Any who this time around I renamed everything so it would identify better with the automatic detection, however I have a few stragglers that need manual detection. When I use the identify tool I no longer seem to be able to immediately identify movies with IMDB id anymore. No results show up. I did see some forum posts back in February stating that emby doesnt search that database anymore (What happened?) But I wanted to confirm. So I attempted to use the movidb which does have the movie in its database but that doesnt return any results either. But I am not quite sure what that website uses for its "ID" as with IMDB I just used the number in the web address. One of the Movies in question is Frank Herberts Children of Dune: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0287839/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 https://www.themoviedb.org/tv/9156-frank-herbert-s-children-of-dune?language=en I cant seem to get the Emby Server to ID that. Soooo what am I doing wrong if anything. Also any way to make that back button in that Identify window actually go back to the search instead of closing the whole window? Really annoying.
  19. Since my Plex Pass is up for renewal in a few weeks, I'm back at trying Emby (on a Synology 416j, no video transcoding needed, ever). However, I'm already starting to stumble. Installed Emby, created a TV Show library, pointed it to my Plex TV shows library folder, waited for it to finish scanning. Then went into the Library to see if there's stuff that needs changing, found several, and have now tried for almost 1 hour to convince Emby that "Bron - The Bridge" is not some US series dated from 2010, but the Swedish series from 2011. Identify -> select the correct series -> wait a minute -> it's back to "The Bridge 2010" Identify -> add TVDB id and select the correct series -> wait a minute -> it's back to "The Bridge 2010" Is there some magic voodoo to make a selection stick?
  20. Pretty sure I've asked before but - Have a Documentaries library, type TV though may not be confined to this. It seems that most of the images it gets for these are low res - if it can't find an image on the interweb (though it can get metadata), can't it get a better one from some kind of grab from the video itself ? Also why aren't I allowed to Identify it -
  21. Please can we make emby able to correctly identify foreign films when the original title is included in the filename enclosed in normal brackets (parentheses). Currently, if the filename of the movie has either the English title, or the foreign title only, then the film will get identified. If the filename includes the English title and the original title enclosed in brackets, it will not identify the movie. e.g. English Title (YYYY).mkv Original Title (YYYY).mkv These two work just fine. English Title (Original Title) (YYYY).mkv With this filename, emby simply can't identify it. And you have to manually 'Identify' by copying either titles into the Identify dialog. Including the original title, enclosed in brackets, is very common and the logical, correct way of including both titles for foreign films and any other films that have differing titles in different regions. For example, here's Rotten Tomato's Top 100 Art House & International Movies: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/top/bestofrt/top_100_art_house__international_movies/ From the 100 movies in this list, emby will fail to identify 38 of them. Entering these filenames into any other system, website, app, etc. results in the correct movies being identified. emby fails. Having to manually identify all these foreign films is laborious, time consuming and ultimately surprising... Why can't emby cope with these???
  22. Hello everyone from Emby! This is my first post on your forums since I only started using your product since yesterday (22/09/2017). I used to work with Plex Media Server but after testing your system I'm thinking on jumping platforms for my streaming needs. So here is the issue that I'm facing: 1) After creating a library and scanning the library, I'm faced with a lot of shows with automatically downloaded metadata (which is fine and works perfectly) but also some shows with incorrect matches or no matches at all. I tried finding an option to "fix incorrect match" like I used to do it in PMS and so I found the "Identify" option to basically fix the metadata of each series. Again, until then everything is working perfectly. So after pressing the "identify" option, we get the "identify" window/form where you can actually type in a Name and then search for possible metadata match in the DBs. Now here comes the issue... after I've typed a Name and submit my request, I'm often faced with many possibles metadata choices that could match with my Name. The real problem here is that I'm not shown the complete names of all those possible matches; they are being cut after about 19 characters which is way too small in my case. Some more details to completely explain the issue: -I've only been faced with this annoying issue with Anime titles for Series and Movies since Anime titles are often very long and often have multiple seasons and special episodes starting with the same long title meaning we're seeing the same "Names" in the Metadata Matches. i.e. *Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch *Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch R2 *Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch Special Edition Black Rebellion *Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch Picture Drama *etc, etc... Most of them only show "Code Geass: Hangyak...". I haven't seen an option to change the format to see complete names. Is there some kind of hidden function I have not seen? I'm all ears! 2)Following directly from issue 1, I click on the wrong metadata match and I want to go back by clicking on the back arrow (top left corner of the previous image) or by clicking out of the window, it simply drops me back to my Library and I need to redo all the steps I mentioned to try a different metadata match. If there is no way to display the full names of all matches at this moment, is there a way to make it so that back-tracking to the metadata match window is possible? Thank you for looking into it! Best regards, Pitchblack P.S. I think Emby has a lot of great options! I enjoy it a lot.

    TV show identify/metadata trouble

    I have trying to add a folder (set as media type TV) containing a TV series to Emby library, but am having some trouble getting it to identify the series and its episodes and pulling the meta data. I have done a few other series and the "Identify" feature worked fine, however, that option is not showing up when i add this folder. The episodes will only show under the " Latest" tab and does not populate any of the shows info or structure like it has with other series. When i go in to metadata manager and select the folder level, the External IDs section has no options to add anything. Each ep file does heve those fields open, and i paste the IMDB and/or TVdb ids int ot them, but nothing else changes? Am i doing something wrong? IMDB id: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3793630/ TVdb: http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=282756&lid=7
  24. Hi folks, Let me know if posting a server log would help. I'm on the latest release Version 3.0.5972.0 I just put the movie "Colonia" (a 2015 production) onto my server. It was in a folder called "\Colonia\" which I thought would be specific enough. Instead, it was identified as a 2011 short movie called "Ars Colonia." No worries... or so I thought. I went into the server's Metadata Manager, picked the movie, and used the Identify option. A bunch of possible matches showed, including the 2015 Colonia that was the correct one. I clicked on it to select it, then hit the submit, making sure I had the box checked for Replace Existing Images. Upon clicking Submit it returns to the metadata manager folder view with "Ars Colonia" selected. Nothing changes or updates based on the corrected selection. I tried Saving... no change. Tried choosing the Refresh option. No change. I don't believe I'm doing anything wrong, but perhaps somehow it's user error. Please advise, but I think this is likely a bug. Thanks for your help. Marc

    Ebook metadata fetcher?

    So I wish I had the time or pre-existing skills to write a plugin here. I know several languages, but alas... nobody wants my life story. My hope is that someone already involved in plugin development or development in the main server will be inspired by this idea. If Ebooks can be "identified" through Emby with their ISBN, I can logically see a plugin/feature of Emby that would take the following information, generate the appropriate URL, parse the URL for a specific div, and copy the contents of that div into various metadata fields. For instance... The Book Thief by Markus Zusak... BOOK OVERVIEW (see attached screenshot) http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/book-thief-markus-zusak?ean=9780375842207 URL format: "http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/" + full-title + author-first-last + "?ean=" + isbn13 Inside this page, copy contents of div.overview-desc, stripping out the h2 tags and their contents note: isbn13 from above is stripped of hyphens BOOK COVER IMAGE http://prodimage.images-bn.com/pimages/9780375842207.jpg simple url format: "http://prodimage.images-bn.com/pimages/" + isbn-13 + ".jpg" note: isbn13 from above is stripped of hyphens ------------------------------------ Of course, this may need to be built into Emby Server in order to integrate the "identify" feature as seen in movies, television, etc. But the ISBN could always be manually input into the "website" part of the metadata, or the "comic vine volume id" since these ebooks aren't going to be in their database. This process can be duplicated for other information as well... Star ratings (see attached screenshot), reviews, and most other sites. As long as those sites are database driven, we can find that pattern. I'd love to help, but time is in short supply.
