  1. Hi Emby Team, I'm really hoping there could be some improvements made to the views, handling & features of the Music Videos view. It's one of my most used features in Emby Theater but feel its lacking a little in some areas, primarily around seamless playback and quick navigation as listed below. My Feature Requests: 1) Latest Music Videos added at home screen would allow to play next video (by date added) automatically, with similar feature popup while playing with episodes with the 30 second timer countdown. (Technically this can be done via the Music Video view, Sorting b
  2. I've been wanting to see music videos when viewing artists in the music library for quite some time. Tried the Music Video plug-in a while ago. It was a train wreck. Mostly because i do not have my music video library structure set up the correct way for it. Emby: "To add music videos, setup a library with the type "Music Videos". The naming conventions for music videos are identical to movies." Translation to me means: One video per folder. With PLEX its one artist and then ALL videos in same folder for said artist. Easy! So with my folder structure being set up Artist/music videos t
  3. i love having a music videos library but i felt that updating the metadata using the metadata manager was tedious, because my mp4 files are already tagged and my folder structure contains all the info that i need in the NFO files, so i wrote this python script to do the tedious parts for me. this script will: * autofill your NFO files (if you follow the folder structure) * change the sort title so that your music videos are sorted in a pretty way * walk thru your music videos and query your a musicbrainzid for each artist (i forget why i did this, i think it was part of a l
  4. I have had a Music Videos library for a while and I am now adding in my Music as a separate library. I seem to remember from years ago that Music Videos would show up on the Artist's page if the Artist was entered into the Music Video's metadata, but this doesn't appear to be happening. For instance, I have a music video that has metadata Artist of Ariana Grande. I have an album of music with metadata Artist of Ariana Grande. Clicking on the artist's name in the Music Videos library takes you to the Artist's page where the album is visible, but the music videos do not show up ther
  5. Would be nice if both Libraries match with artist name. I tried to link them with Collections but I had to add music albums one by one, if I grab the music artist to Collections nothing happens... Automatic join by album artist name please.
  6. Hi, when entering my music videos library (that is at least in in Web and ET), I will always get the videos view as default page and then I have to switch to the folder view. For other libraries, I can change the default page in the personal settings, but not for music videos. Please change the default page or add an option for this, as it always needs some time until emby displays the videos view and then I have to change to folder view. Thanks & Ciao, Alfred
  7. Hi, I tried everything and now unable to solve issue by myself. I added videos songs in Music video type content and created a library but no videos are showing but a few Audio songs. I really thankful, if someone help me. Thanks
  8. I have the complete Live Aid 1985 in 21 files, under Music Videos File structure is: Live Aid (1985) >Live Aid (1985) >Live Aid (1985) - Part 1 > Live Aid (1985) - Part 2 > Live Aid (1985) - Part 3 and so on, but when viewing it in Emby, the additional parts are in random order: How do I get them to display in the correct order?
  9. I had issues in the past with my library with the content type "Music Videos", where it was creating entries without a valid path and thus unplayable. I moved my media to a new location, and copied the "Music Videos" folder and pointed the library to that new location. Removed the old location, and EMBY re-scanned the library. It's found all the content, that worked prior to moving, but it's created all entries now with no "PATH" and thus non are playable. They have all the other METADATA, just no "Path" entry. They all have an added date of 1/1/1, for some strange reason too. Wh
  10. Look at the wasted space between rows on MUSIC VIDEOS content. Why? Please can we not have so much wasted space between rows so that more information/thumbnails can appear on the screen? Lots of wasted space for the Play All, Shuffle and Sort by Folders menu option too Screenshot from Emby Theatre but the same on LG App too.

    music video library

    I'm starting to build a music video library downloading from various sources like youtube etc. As I'm just getting started, would like to know from dev or others with experience on the right approach that would play well with emby and long term too. All my videos would be 1080p. All of my collection would be regional and so I don't think automated info fetching plugins will help build the album info etc. I'm a hands-on programmer and can generate files (like nfo) programatically that can be attached to each of the video. Using the metadata manager from emby wouldn't be an option as it would be
  12. I'm fairly new to Emby and I'm having some issues getting my Music Videos to be organised nicely within Emby. I am using Emby on macOS 10.13.3. I have 506 music videos. The videos are all M4V files and are rigorously tagged with Title, Artist, Album etc. The folder structure on disk is: Music Videos |- Artist | |- Video File |- Artist | |- Video File | |- Video File |- Artist | |- Album | | |- Video File | |- Album | | |- Video File | | |- Video File |- Artis

    Music Videos - File Naming

    A quick question as I am a bit confused by Music Video file structures. I am sorting out my music videos on my server and I think I have it right in that the music videos are stored in a Music Video share on the UnRAID server as: Server/Music Videos/artist name/artist name - track name.ext Example Server/Music Videos/ABBA/ABBA - Dancing Queen.mp4 And all other ABBA videos are in the same folder. The Share is listed as a Music Video folder in Emby. However, what do I do for my music videos that are in *.VOB format? These are under a VIDEO_TS folder Do I put them

    music videos not linking

    My media folder structure \Music \Music Videos . . . 1. The Wiki regarding music videos states: "Once setup, you can optionally edit music videos and fill in their artist and album information. If you do, the music videos can be linked to other items in your library from the same artist." This does not appear to be working. 2. I have been unable to get Music Videos to be recognized when the Music Videos folder is a sub-folder of Music. Just want to confirm that this is as designed.
  15. Hi, I have a music video folder in my library, this contains folders for the artists with the video files in it. No I have enabled the nfo and the xml reader for this folder: So far I've created a folder.xml file for the artist metadata (with LocalTitle, SortTitle and Description in it), but as I'm trying to move to nfo files, I enabled also the nfo saver for music videos: While this works without problems for the video files, there is no nfo created for the artist folder, even if I edit and save the metadata. So this is, what a folder might look like: As

    Few Music Video Improvements

    Added my music video collection into Emby a while back. To assist with seamless playback, it would be great if: 1) Latest Music Videos on home screen would allow to play next automatically, with similar feature popup while playing with episodes. In the order that they were added to Emby. 2) For a random & continuous playback options to be added in the Music Video view. Playback could be based on current sort for continuous playback. If I search for an artist via the search button that the dynamic list created can be played in sequence or randomly. Individually selecting a video

    Music Videos library broken

    I can't tell exactly when the problem started because I'm not watching content from this library regularly but it used to work fine a month ago for example. Basically the problem is that all the metadata for my Music Videos library seems to be gone. Folder structure remains untouched and it was setup like this: Music Video 1/Music Video 1.mkv Music Video 2/Music Video 2.mkv Music Video 3/Music Video 3.mkv And so on. Same setup as the Movies library (which still works just fine). Something I noticed that is different is that before the problem started I would see all my music vid
  18. There seems to be a small regression in the new Stable, 2.2.0, as compared to the last one, 1.1.62. The grouping of music videos by artists and albums does not work in 2.2.0 where as it worked in 1.1.62. To test use Confluence. Videos>Music Videos (sub menu)>artists and Videos>Music Videos (sub menu)>albums. Both show empty lists. I should have tested the betas. Have to be more proactive next time. BTW Artist grouping was added in 1.1.53 by @@Angelblue05. Thanks again for your efforts. Cheers, LongMan
  19. I use Mp3Tag to tag my Music Videos and would like for the tags to automatically update into the metadata when added to the server. This would be great and I would not have to enter the data manually. Plus it would put the music videos into the artist folder. Below is an image of my tagged media properties. Notice the bottom with the media properties. Thanks

    Music Videos??

    How do I navigate to my music videos collection? I just realized I'm not able to find music videos in any client (specifically MBC and MBT). They are there in the web client. I had never really looked for them before, but when I wanted to watch one, I realized I had no idea how to find them.
  21. Not sure if something has changed server side with music videos, but my music videos are not displaying correctly (they use to), and I can't seem to fix it (probably something simply). I have the correct structure (artist folder - music video(s)), but this is how the web client is displaying my music videos When I click on one of them (they should all be folders), it takes my to this screen I have tried selecting 'split version apart', but that does nothing. Can anyone help?
  22. Server Version 3.0.5424.1 OS Windows 7 64bit The announcement "Media Browser Server 3.0.5416 Beta Released" Under "Bugs Resolved:" it stated: "Music videos not showing up on artist page" This does not appear to have been resolved. Michael Jackson example:
  23. I recently started building a music video collection, and for the artists that would not automatically identify, I manually put in the audiodb id in the appropriate field. However, now in the recent beta build the external id fields no longer display, and all of the artist metadata seems to be gone. Also, in the web client, when I click on Music, and then on the music video tab, none of my videos display. I have to click on the folders view, then music videos, to get them to display. This worked in the official(I recently updated to beta) I browsed the KB on file structure and it isn't very s
  24. 1 issue and 1 question. Server Version 3.0.5267.16902 Music Videos file structure: Music Videos\ Artist\ Video1\ track.mp4 Video2\ track.mp4 1) ****movie.xml is not being created for Music Videos. This results in red warning icon being displayed. I have refreshed the Music Videos collection...no joy. I have rescanned the Library...no joy I have refreshed the Music Video...no joy. 2) Is there supposed to be a "artist.xml" in the artist folder? (none are being created...just wondering)

    Music Videos

    Just a quick word to say how impressed I am by mb3, I used to use mb2 for films and tv series, documentaries and stand up which the metadata was easy to handle, and what a great result you get when teamed up with the right skin. I never used this for music though. Then when mb3 came along and then my old pc bit it it gave me the chance to rebuild from scratch. So I decided to add music this time and it is turning out to be a bit of a minefield especially when it comes to music videos, and getting everything to link together. which leads me to my first question. i was just wondering how to
