  1. Hi, I'm a big fan for emby server, and I love to fill my metadata with useful information about the content using Tags; I feel it will be much more powerful if Tags can be auto-completed based on previous tag entries. a drop down list also will do a good job. thanks, DaN
  2. Recently reset my book & comic library to get it working with the latest version of emby, and noticed that external metadata files aren't being generated for supported files. Tried manually creating/importing nfo, opf, and xml files, but they're either not supported, not being detected, or aren't properly formatted. Any tips? I'm able to edit metadata for the titles, but it clearly isn't being stored in or with the files. Thus far I've tested cbz, epub, and pdf books with manually extracted cover thumbs. On my home machine, I typically manage my epub books with Calibre (I use the current version), and my cbz books with ComicRack (I don't believe the software's maintained any more, however). While Calibre generates opf metadata files, ComicRack usually stores its metadata of the cb7/cbr/cbt/cbz archive files as an xml archived inside the file. Though I doubt there's time or resources available for emby devs to enable the server software to extract the metadata from these files, I am curious as of what the proper method is since emby's clearly storing the metadata that it does have somewhere (the cache perhaps?). Of additional minor note, the current metadata for books doesn't seem to include an author tag, so I've been keeping that data in the title. Is that intended to be placed in the Studio tag or something? Stay awesome! EDIT: Also, any genre tags on books link to the equivalent Movie genre instead (if they exist). Tags seem to work properly at least.
  3. I have a couple of media folders holding football and basketball games I've recorded. I recently came accross a metadata website for sports called http://thesportsdb.com. Would it be possible to add a field like the other metadata fields to pull information from that site to fill in fanart, description, dates, etc.? Ii'm not sure if it would require a new media "type" folder called sports, similar to tv and movies. I've linked a couple pages, the first is the API for returning information from the db. http://www.thesportsdb.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=5 The second is example json (I believe) data http://www.thesportsdb.com/api/v1/json/1/searchteams.php?t=Cleveland%20Indians

    Multi-language metadata

    Hi, It would be nice to have an option for single or multi languages metadata fetching. And based on the user settings it display the language metadata with in the home and in libraries. And maybe with a button or dropdown menu like in Audio and Subtitles if there is more than one inside the main page of the media. Thank you.

    How do I fetch metadata for people only?

    Hello: Issue: Cast and crew images do not display in Emby. I am wondering if there is a way to only fetch the metadata for the cast and crew (people)? I am reluctant to try anything since all of my other metadata is mostly customized and would appreciate an expert opinion. Experience: I have looked through the library settings for metadata and I am unsure which options would apply to resolve only the cast and crew metadata. I currently have all down-loaders and fetchers disabled/turned-off. I have read this post and understand there is issues with importing from older storage structures: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/63331-how-to-backup-people-images-with-beta-going-onwards/ Other information: I am running windows 10 / Kodi (build 18.4) / Emby Server 4.3.1.0.
  6. Hi, so what I'm suggesting isn't just the whole WebUI page refreshing when any changes is detected, I'm leaning more toward the Plex approach. Meaning, when scanning your library folders (per show/movie/etc.) you'll get the percentage indicator or a spinning icon signaling that the server is in the middle of the process. The lack of indicators when making changes is resulting in an unawareness of if the action you just performed is in effect or has completed. It's a small but appreciated quality of life addition.
  7. Was wondering if, like with Plex, you're able to somehow show the animation studio's name instead of the broadcast company that aired it? Like for an instance Madhouse instead of Tokyo-MX.
  8. Hello everyone Last Friday I restarted my Docker Emby container on Unraid. I lost all my libraries. I had the "Server Configuration Backup" extension, but no restore worked. I was using this Emby package, so I thought that this one had a problem. So I installed a new package at the end of the day. Everything was working until today when I had no cover image on my libraries. I restarted my container, and I lost all my containers. I also tried a restore but nothing worked. Also, it deleted my old Emby log files... However, I found an error in the little log file : When I look in my system, all the metadatas are deleted... ! Do you know can i fix it and restore my metadas ? Thanks a lot embyserver-63765654731.txt
  9. Most of my downloads for my anime has filenames with underscores, like A_Certain_Magical_Index_02 for example. The series is recognized just fine, and because the episodes are sorted into Season folders the seasons are fine, but with the filename like that it doesn't download any metadata for the episode itself. Once I replace the underscores with spaces it has no problem, but is there a way to have it work with underscores, or is there no way to fix this? Can it be added please?
  10. It occurs to me that the various databases have a great array of images for actors that sometimes will include series specific pictures for them. A few series that pop out to me are Various Star Trek Series, Various TMNT Series, Knights of the Templar, the various CW DC Series; many more. I don't tend to use these so that I don't see one of the posters popup for an actor on a completely unrelated series. Could we have a feature that allows us to have several posters/art for a single actor and specific which to use as default and which to use on specific series? --- Another random feature request (possibly/probably deserving its own thread), on the same vein as actor metadata, currently, we have all the actors on a series get crammed on a single line. I would love to have an option to allow people to display two additional lines for actors, 1 for season regulars (not series regulars, regulars that are for one season only) and then an additional one for notable guest stars. Considering some might see this as clutter, especially if a super awesome way to display this doesn't come along, I would highly recommend that the server admin can opt to turn this feature off and users can also opt to turn this feature on and off; obviously if the server admin opts to turn it off, its turned off for everyone.
  11. I am having some issues with The Walking Dead and The Walking Dead: Origins, Emby keeps matching the later as part of the main show and I can't get it to split at all, if I go into season one of the walking dead and then each episode I can split them there but it still see is as one show and not 2 different ones. I am unable to use folder view as it seems to thing the same here, yet my Plex has detected them properly and there using separate folders on my NAS as per how Sonarr added them
  12. Hallo, ich habe einen neuen Emby Server aufgesetzt und mir ist aufgefallen, das die Zuordnung nicht immer funktioniert, wenn der Film in Deutschland einen anderen Namen hat. Im Beispiel geht es um den Film "Auf der Jagd" von 1998. Wenn ich den Film auf "themoviedb" suche bekomme ich auch den Film als Ergebnis (Film 01 themoviedb). Wenn ich Emby zum Identifizieren des Films benutzte (Film 01 Identifizieren), bekomme ich ein unzufriedenstellendes Ergebnis. Hat jemand eine gute Idee? Gruß Rolf
  13. Hi, Apologies again for the long post. This is a follow-up to my post from the previous year: The discussions there helped me finalise the working of multiple Emby servers that read from the same library with one acting as the metadata writer for generating all the nfo/jpg etc. and the others (referred to as metadata readers) reading those with their respective internet metadata downloaders disabled or uninstalled altogether. Now that 4.6.1 has been released with quite a few changes to how Emby stores and processes the metadata (especially with Collections & Audiobooks), I am planning to wipe the existing metadata and re-generate it with a fresh Emby install so that there are no issues due to upgrades etc. Before going ahead with it, I have a few questions that I would like clarified: * Are the metadata generated by 4.5.4 & 4.6.1 servers inter-compatible (barring Collections, which is stored in a different location altogether)? To clarify, can the metadata writer be in 4.6.1 and the metadata readers be in 4.5.4 or vice-versa? Any issues with client compatibilities? * How are multiple collections stored in the media nfo file? Multiple set tags? * I see that TV shows also have the "Minimum automatic collection size" setting (like Movies) but no option for "Automatically import collections from the enabled metadata downloaders" like Movies. Is that by design? What does changing the size affect then, if it's not automatically importing the collections? * What all content has been moved to the metadata folder, apart from Collections? From a brief search, I see that the People folder was also moved there? Anything else? * Following up on the above, why wasn't the movement of the People folder mentioned in the release notes? The move of Collections is also similarly lacking mention in the release notes but for that, at least there was a mention of the storage rework which helped me to track down the various changes w.r.t the media nfo files & the metadata folder * I see that the people images are only downloaded on-demand now which becomes problematic in my scenario where the metadata folder is mounted as read-write only on the metadata writer & as read-only on the metadata readers with no streaming occurring on the writer. Is there any API call to force a download of those images?

    Deutsche Metadaten TMDB

    Hi, nach längerer Nutzung des TMM um Metadaten zu pflegen, habe ich Mal wieder emby selber getestet. Leider funktioniert das scrapen über TMDB für Filme (Serien ist ein anderes Thema) auf Deutsch immernoch nicht ordentlich. Beispielsweise wird die Handlung für den Film "Luca" auf Englisch bezogen, obwohl auf TMDB eine deutsche Handlung verfügbar ist. (Metadaten über emby schon mehrfach versucht zu aktualisieren, bleiben Englisch) Der TMM ruft korrekt die verfügbare deutsche Handlung ab. Wäre es evtl. möglich, dass sich dieser Problematik einmal angenommen wird? Letztendlich sind die korrekte Abfrage und Verarbeitung von Metadaten ja ein essentieller Bestandteil von emby. Hier wird bei solchen Problemen leider immer bzw. meistens auf eine fehlerhafte APi von z.B. TMDB hingewiesen, dass mag auch mal so gewesen sein, mittlerweile bekommen andere Scraper es aber hin Daten fehlerfrei auf deutsch (wenn verfügbar) von TMDB zu scrapen.

    Metadaten ThemovieDB

    Hallo, ich habe in letzter Zeit ein Problem mit den Bildern bzw. Metadaten bei den Serien. Die Staffeln und Serien bekommen keine neuen Bilder, bzw. sind bei Staffeln alle mit den gleichen Bildern darin. Auch wenn ich auf Identifizieren gehe ändern sich die Bilder nicht? Ist das ein bekanntes Problem? Wie kann ich das umgehen? LG
  16. I upgrade to MB3 Media Browers Classic from an older Media Browser. Mostly having problems with T.V. shows like the The Office (American), it has never downloaded the artwork. But with MB3, it still didn't download artwork or most but did downloaded a lot of incorrect episode names, artwork and descriptions for some. I manually deleted files out of the folder where the movie resides but that didn't change anything. Where can I fix this and how can I set it to grab the correct metadata and artwork. I label all episodes in this fashion - Show/Seasons/S01E01. Any help would be appreciated. Love the new design!
  17. Emby is not properly reading all ARTIST tags for MP3 files. FLAC files are okay, seems to be only MP3 files. Not sure what causes this, but I tag MP3 and FLAC files the same in mp3tag and MusicBee, with an ARTIST tag for each artist on the track: Title: Believe ft. Big KRIT (DatPiff Exclusive) Album: Before The Box Album Artist: David Banner Artist: David Banner Artist: Big K.R.I.T. When FLAC files are tagged this way with multiple artists, the artist tag is treated as a list and all artist are recognized individually. However, it seems like Emby can only read the first ARTIST tag from MP3 files. This means that any featured artists do not get indexed, and any MP3s they are tagged on will NOT show up on under the "appears on" section for the artist page. Here are the tags viewed in Mp3tag:
  18. Hello, After previously working through some issues with Genre Cleaner re: movie genres, I've since moved onto polishing up my music library. For whatever reason, a handful (maybe 40-50) songs/albums showed up under a genre category which did not appear on the actual file's "details" genre properties within Windows Explorer. Some of these categories remained even after running Genre Cleaner. Nevertheless, I've gone through the process of manually editing the individual albums/files to achieve the desired results. This effort has generated a broader question for MBS: How do I lock a specific metadata category within an entire folder (music album, music genre, entire music folder, etc) to prevent future alterations via library refresh/internet downloaders for metadata? For example, as described in the first paragraph, I would like to "lock" the music genre category for all of my existing music, particularly before I attempt to download any of the additional missing metadata (ex: artist images). I've spent over a decade trying to classify my music into genres for playlist listening purposes and I'd hate to have all of that work washed away with one simple refresh of the music library. From what I can tell, it appears that locking a folder for a specific metadata category does not appear to lock the same metadata category for that folder's subfolders. For instance, if I have a music album folder with 10 songs within it, toggling the album's "genre" category to lock will NOT then result in the album's individual songs being locked for "genre." This premise is similar for TV shows and their seasons, or the seasons and individual episodes, and so on and so forth. Sorry for the long explanation, I just wanted to make sure I'm not entirely missing the boat here in case there is such a setting that I've overlooked. If not, I think this would be a huge request for a "wish list." Please advise. Thanks!
  19. I have a couple of sports related libraries with matches I've recorded from TV, when setting them up in libraries I have the library set to use 'Thumbnail Images' (Generate video preview thumbnails = 'as a scheduled task and when media is added'), I can see this works great in the 'Chapters' part of an entry (ie a match) but the screenshots aren't used for the entry itself, instead the main image for the top level item is used (see screenshot attached). The absolute ideal scenario would be to be able to select one of the chapter images as the main image for the entry or, if not that then, to click a button in 'Images' that will show a few screenshots to select from. Thanks
  20. I'm trying to update the Cover photo of some albums because some of the automatic album covers taken from metadata are not good quality. This works fine for most albums but there are some albums that when updating the album cover, the individual song covers stay the same because each of them has its own cover still set to the previous one. Any way I can update all songs in an album to the custom Album cover that I've set without having to go through each song and change its cover individually?

    Common Sense Media ratings

    You have critic ratings and tomato meter, it would be be nice to see a Common Sense Media age rating. Or an option to turn it on or a plugin to enable it. Thanks!
  22. In my plugin I have successfully implemented Movie and Series Providers without any issues based on the examples from the Anime plugin. Now I am trying to do the same for people with no success. I have tried it first by implementing IRemoteMetadataProvider and when that didn't work I tested ILocalMetadataProvider also with no success. While debugging with breakpoints on the GetMetadata and GetSearchResults methods it seems like they are simply never called. Not while adding a person, not while manually refreshing the metadata and not while using the identify search. For reference these are my classes, stripped down to the minimum for testing: IRemoteMetadataProvider class MediaServerDBPersonProvider : IRemoteMetadataProvider<Person, PersonLookupInfo> { private readonly ILogger _log; private readonly IHttpClient _httpClient; private readonly IApplicationPaths _paths; private readonly IDirectoryService _directoryService; public static string provider_name = ProviderNames.MediaServerDB; public string Name => "MediaServerDB"; public MediaServerDBPersonProvider(IHttpClient httpClient, ILogger log, IDirectoryService directoryService, IApplicationPaths paths) { _httpClient = httpClient; _log = log; _directoryService = directoryService; _paths = paths; } public Task<MetadataResult<Person>> GetMetadata(PersonLookupInfo info, CancellationToken cancellationToken) { return Task.FromResult<MetadataResult<Person>>(new MetadataResult<Person>()); } public Task<IEnumerable<RemoteSearchResult>> GetSearchResults(PersonLookupInfo searchInfo, CancellationToken cancellationToken) { return Task.FromResult(Enumerable.Empty<RemoteSearchResult>()); } public Task<HttpResponseInfo> GetImageResponse(string url, CancellationToken cancellationToken) { return _httpClient.GetResponse(new HttpRequestOptions { CancellationToken = cancellationToken, Url = url }); } } ILocalMetadataProvider public class MediaServerDBLocalPersonProvider : ILocalMetadataProvider<Person> { private readonly ILogger _log; private readonly IApplicationPaths _paths; public static string provider_name = ProviderNames.MediaServerDB; public string Name => "MediaServerDB"; public MediaServerDBLocalPersonProvider(IApplicationPaths appPaths, ILogManager logManager) { _log = logManager.GetLogger(Name); _paths = appPaths; } public Task<MetadataResult<Person>> GetMetadata(ItemInfo info, IDirectoryService directoryService, CancellationToken cancellationToken) { return Task.FromResult<MetadataResult<Person>>(new MetadataResult<Person>()); } } One thing I noticed is that while for Movies and Series the used providers depend on the configuration of the library, the providers used for people seem to have a different configuration as even with all remote providers disabled in the library emby is still fetching remote metadata for people. So maybe I need to configure my provider to be used for people somehow? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  23. So I added a new series to the server for my two young sons to watch. When logged in on their profiles, the saeries is not displayed - that's because their profiles restrict content based on the rating. great, that works. When I look at the series, I see the parental rating applied is KR-ALL. Being in the UK, anything other than GB-U or GB-PG is not allowed on their profiles. Again, good, all is working. however, when I go to amend the parental rating, I change the series rating to GB-U thinking this will cascade from the highest level down through both seasons and all episodes. Nope. I then have to go to each season and change that perental rating and then each and every single episode. Even using the metadata manager this is panful as Ican't select multiple items... Please tell me I did something wrong and should have done X instead to change all values simultaneously... Tl/DR - changing the parental rating of a TV series doesn't cascade to all items below it and using the metadata manager is painful without allowing multiple selections.
  24. Hi, Some of us listen to classical music and maintain extensive collections of it. Unfortunately, proper classical music sorting requires different metadata fields than pop music. For example, the composer field is not very important with pop music, but is a big requirement with classical music. Currently, Emby supports a single content type for music, which is tailored for pop music. It has views to list Artists, Album artists, Albums, Songs and Genre. I propose to create a second content type dedicated to classical music. This would be a very coherent move since there already are distinct content types for movies, series, concerts or home movies, even if they all deal with video files. The views of this new content type would better fit classical music: for example, we would be able to list music by composer or by conductor, but not by song as this does not mean anything in classical music. Furthermore, audio metadata support should be improved. Currently, Emby supports the Composer tag. That's great, but not enough to deal properly with a classical music collection. We need to support a bunch of other tags, like the Conductor, Performer and Orchestra tags. Adding support for such tags should not be very difficult, as many of them are part of the official ID3 specifications and already supported by ffprobe. Classical music support is a very important feature for me and some other people. So important that I would even pay to have it added to Emby. If I can help to build it, I would do it very happily. If developers do not wish to add those features, maybe it could be implemented by a 3rd-party plugin. In that case, could someone point me towards some kind of guide or tutorial to get started ? I know C# and .Net but have no idea about how Emby works with plugins, and how to extend the metadata schema. Thanks! Marin.

    Metadata default language

    Hi, I have a quick question and couldn't find any information. Is there an option to set a default language for metadata, if no data for the language set for the library is available? In my case I have set the library language to German, but theTVDB does not have German content for all the episodes yet and currently Emby is not showing any information. In this case I'd like Emby to pull the English content, but it seems that this is not possible or am I missing something? Thanks.
