Video Enthusiast posted a topic in General/WindowsI am really struggling and need some help. I am trying to set up a large collection of fitness videos in Emby (and Jellyfin and Plex for that matter) and struggling badly. Tvdb does not support fitness videos. Luckily moviedb does, one must enter each workout as a "movie" and tag it is a "video." This works, it downloads a nice poster, but it also pulls down the long file name (e.g. A Little Obsessed - Day 5 Legs) - see Figure 1. Because the rules at moviedb are that each "movie" must contain the series name first, and the workout name second, titles are very long, and they get cut off- so each video is labelled "the same" (see FIgure 2). On the other hand, if I embed the shortened title (eg. Day 5 Legs) in the metadata of the .mp4 and then in Emby select "prefer local metadata" and NO fetchers/agents, I get what I want - nice readable titles - except I don't get the nice poster (only a random segment of the video as a still). Or I can start with that, but as soon as I choose "identify" (or match in Plex) it pulls down the poster and the long title - for the ones that I do that for (see Figure 3). How can I fix this? I have too many videos to update the record for each video in Emby- I am looking for a solution that will work across the board (in part because I am experimenting in Windows but my final server will be on my Nvidia shield- once my disk drive/files/etc are all set up properly). Please help! Suggestions welcome! At one point I tried altering the title with .nfo files, but then it didn't stick- the system used the .nfo file to identify the video, and then pulled down the full poster and long title, and overwrote the .nfo file! (Arrghghg).
Hi Could you please add add a db service like goodreads.com (they have and IPI) or something that could identify and download images and metadata for ebooks and audiobooks by name like movies and series? Thanks
Hi, Last week sometime my movies started all being matched as "Teens Titans Go". My tv series from Sonarr work fine so it's something specific to movies. Some background, I have Emby running on Centos 7, it updates every time there is a new stable version (currently 184.108.40.206). I have a SMB share to which I copy the new movies and then Emby picks it up from there. I can still click on movie -> Identify, copy and paste the movie name to the "Name" field and it will match correctly, but previously it would match it correctly from the get go. Any suggestions? Thanks. Warren.
Hi, I am testing this as a possible replacement to my current Plex server. However I notice on my series that if there are more than once series by a name, it downloads the meta-data of the oldest. My example is Poldark. There is an old series and a 2015 series. Emby downloads data for the old one, even though the epiosode names are in format: Poldark.2015.S02E05. Can Emby not rather lookup the latest, rather than first. The Americans series does the same. Thank you. Warren
