  1. I have recently been trying to setup a Pro Wrestling library in Emby. Before I started setting things up, I did some forum research to see the best library type for this purpose and this thread (https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/68025-folder-structure-being-recognized-as-series/) indicated either a Mixed Content library or Home Video library would likely be the best. I opted for the Mixed Content type. By its nature, Pro Wrestling is generally a mix of three content types: Weekly episodic TV series, each spread across multiple years of "seasons" (e.g. WWE Raw, WCW Nitro, etc.), obviously best thought of as TV Series. Periodic PPV events that are each best thought of as individual Movies (e.g. WrestleMania I, WrestleMania II, Royal Rumble 1989, etc). Retail compilation tapes, documentaries, etc that are also best thought of as Movies. I made sure to structure all of my files and folders into a structure that conformed to the Emby naming conventions. For each of the various wrestling TV series, I named them in accordance with Emby's TV naming conventions, like this --> Show Name (debut year) / Season 1 / Show Name - S01E01 - [Episode Name & Info]. For the PPV events and other items, I followed Emby's complex folder structure Movie naming conventions, like this --> WWF / PPV Events / WrestleMania / WrestleMania 2 (1986) / WrestleMania 2 (1986) - [version denotation, e.g. "720p"].mkv My desired outcome in Emby looks like this: Pro Wrestling (library)WWF/WWE (folder)Monday Night Raw (type: TV Series)Season 1 (1993) Season 2 (1994) ... PPV Events (folder)WrestleMania (folder)WrestleMania I (type: Movie) WrestleMania II (type: Movie) ... Royal Rumble (folder)Royal Rumble 1988 (type: Movie) Royal Rumble 1989 (type: Movie) ... In Your House (folder)In Your House 1 (type: Movie) In Your House 2 (type: Movie) ... Documentaries (folder)Beyond the Mat (type: Movie) ... For the most part, this is working. However, I am having particular problems with the "In Your House" folder that I highlighted in red above. Emby is detecting the organizational folder "In Your House" as a TV Series and then each of the individual PPV events within as an individual episode. I can't for the life of my figure out why - as my "In Your House" folder structure is exactly the same as my WrestleMania folder structure (which is working perfectly as intended) - see below: My "In Your House" folder strucure: My "WrestleMania" folder structure: I initially thought the root of the problem might have been that TVDB lists "In Your House" as a TV Series (https://www.thetvdb.com/series/wwe-in-your-house), however it looks like TVDB also lists WrestleMania as a TV Series (https://www.thetvdb.com/series/wrestlemania) but WrestleMania (and all the other PPV events) is working as-intended for me. Since, thus far, the issue has been limited to the In Your House events, I'm fine with just manually entering in all of the metadata for each of the 27 individual In Your House events as a work-around... however I can't seem to get Emby to "forget" the association that it has of my "In Your House" folder as a TV Series. I've tried creating a brand new folder with a completely different name and then dumping all of the In Your House events into that, but then Emby immediately recognizes THAT folder as the In Your House "tv series" and I'm right back where I started. Is there any way to force Emby's Mixed Content library to treat a given folder as simply an organizational folder so that it ignores attempting to identify it? Or, better yet, a way to tell Emby whether each folder is 1) an organizational folder, 2) a TV Series type, or 3) a Movie type? Or perhaps I'm just missing something simple. Any help/suggestions are appreciated. Thanks for all the work on this great app! @@Happy2Play @@cayars
  2. This maybe a bug or just the underlying behavior to get multi-versions to work in Emby. According the Emby Wiki you can name the movies files with the following naming convention Multiple versions of the same content can be stored in a single movie folder. /Movies /300 (2006) /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - 1080p.mkv /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - 1080p-trailer.mp4 /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - 4K.mkv /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - 720p.mp4 /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - extended edition.mp4 /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - directors cut.mp4 /300 (2006)/300 (2006) - 3D.hsbs.mp4 Each version must begin with the folder name, followed by " - ". If using the dash method anything following the dash will be what you see in the Emby client app. I have couple movies, Thor: Ragnarok, Pokemon Detective Picaku, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and that do not group properly What discovered using MediaInfo tool was Movie Name in the Container had different names Blu-Ray Rip UHD Rip Blu-Ray UHD

    Help with folder structure

    Hello I have a movie in dvd format that is split in two discs. I'm not sure what the folder structure should be so Emby does not see it as two films but one. From the wiki I gather that I can do something like: Movie/movie-dvd1.mkv movie-dvd2.mkv I also see that I can do: Movie/VIDEO_TS/My question is, how do I combine these two naming conventions so Emby shows the movie once with two discs instead of duplicating the movie? Currently I have it setup as: Movie/Movie-dvd1/VIDEO_TS/ Movie-dvd2/VIDEO_TS/
  4. Hi, can anyone say whether TV episode numbering is case sensitive please? I've recently switched from OS X and Plex to Windows 10 and Emby (such a relief!) but all my current TV episodes are named in the following way: Show - s01e01 - Name of 1st Episode Show - s01e02 - Name of 2nd Episode ...etc. I've named them this way for trivial reasons I guess; that being I prefer how the lowercase 's' and 'e' look for season and episode, over the uppercase 'S' and 'E'. I've read the official wiki which explains how to go about naming TV shows and the only example of this way of naming shows the uppercase version only, before season and episode numbers. Will my shows still be searched and catalogued properly by Emby if I leave the 's' and 'e' lowercase? Many thanks.
  5. I need help understanding filename conventions as applied to blu-ray ISOs. I'm referencing the guidelines, but Emby isn't behaving as I expect. https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/Movie%20naming For example: Mad Max: Fury Road. My set has both 2D and 3D discs. I think the names should be: "Mad Max - Fury Road (2015) - 3D.bluray.iso" "Mad Max - Fury Road (2015) - bluray.iso" I've got the hyphen to indicate two versions, the bluray to say it's a blu-ray and not DVD, and 3D for that version. For this case, I get only the 3D version in Emby Theater, but it's not labeled as 3D. For another similar case, Guardians of the Galaxy, I get two indistinguishable entries in Emby Theater, one for 2D and for 3D, but I can't tell which is which without playing them. I'm confused? What's the expected behavior for two versions of the same movie, with proper filenaming? What should the file names be? I appreciate the help. I bought the lifetime edition and I'm trying to get my library tuned up and moved from Plex and PowerDVD conventions to Emby's.
  6. I can't get MB3 to recognize the Planet earth series from 2006. There is no identify feature for TV series. What do I do. Here is what I did... .../TV Series/Planet Earth/01 Episode Pole to Pole.mp4
