Your libraries of movies, TV, etc. almost certainly have lots and lots and lots of misidentified items, errors... 5%, perhaps more is possible... And 5% of a large collection, is a lot of items. Wrongly identified. Emby relies on the various databases on the internet, and between them, they inevitably make the odd mistake... That's fair enough. Many factors are involved, bad filenames, rare titles, foreign character, etc, etc... Some are just stupidly wrong. They're going to happen... BUT. We still don't have any tools to find them. You have no way of knowing how many errors are in your libraries. We have to rely on stumbling upon the error, or if you have an intimate knowledge of what titles you do have, you'll spot a few more of the errors perhaps. As attempted a couple of times, some of us have tried combining the grossly, needlessly inadequate 'Reports' feature (now a plugin), with data pulled from the database files with external tools. This has worked OK, but is a royal PITA, and not slick, not quick to do. But it does show you how many errors emby holds. Which might horrify/surprise you. If you want some fun, reinstall emby from scratch, rebuilding your libraries... You'll very quickly see some errors, with many more being there without you knowing. ALL WE WANT is the ability to, at least, list the path, filename, against the title and year from metadata downloaded... This simple feature, ability, would make finding these numerous errors possible, if a little bit slow to process (takes a lot of concentration to check 5,000 filenames, titles, years). Later, yeah, it would be sweet to have it highlight non-exact matches, that would speed up the process immensely. But we need the minimum now. These tools need to be in the core of emby... It's not good enough that this media database application doesn't have the most basic data analysis tool! Path, filename, title, year. Please.
Going thru my movies and tv shows, i do sometimes find one that's been misidentified. Often it's just the year that's wrong, as the release date is often different from the year of production (stated in the end credits) which means that it gets identified as another movie by emby. Can we have a way of finding these/spotting these easier? Idea: use Reports? I'd like to be able to compare a list of the identified movie titles with a list of the filenames. So just adding a 'filename' column (perhaps a 'path' column as well) to the reports page will allow me to scan down the list and spot the wrongly identified movies much, much quicker. As a bonus feature, perhaps we could have a filter where if the title matches the filename exactly, then they wouldn't show up leaving only the films with subtly different titles, foreign titles, etc, plus the misidentified films we seek.
