  1. Hi, I would like to request that the requirements for TV Shows naming scheme to be more flexible. Today's naming convention required is: TV Shows / TV Show name / Season 0x/ Show Name - S0xE0x - title.ext Would be possible to allow for the same format but without the need of the Season folder? Example: TV Shows / TV Show name / Show Name - S0xE0x - title.ext And even better would be to just require that S0xE0x should be present on the filename. A few reasons to allow this: 1. Easier and faster to look into an entire TV Shows. Faster to organize. Faster to spot missing episodes and erros. 2. Many of us store their content on remote servers that count API requests. Opening multiple folders is much slower compared to opening a single folder and it also requires less API calls. This would be a good pratice in coding and preserves bandwidth, time and the resources of servers around the world. Hope this request find good ears. Thank you in advance for your time considering this.
  2. i have been having trouble with anime series in particular like Naruto, dragon ball z and now black clover. upon reaching the 100th episode, emby no longer detected the episode, it appeared as some random serial number. so i changed the folder structure as it appears in IMDB, season 1 with 51 episodes, season 2 with 51 episodes, and season 3 empty since no episodes have aired for that folder yet. In emby i created a folder called ANIME SERIES with a tv category, then the folder structure for this series was ANIME SERIES_ Black Clover_ Season 1_ Black Clover S01E01 Which gave me this in emby- it shows episode 106 and 107 unaired in season 1 which is wrong. also season two looked like this- it shows the title of each episode from season 1 and attached it to season 2. originally the folder structure was just the episode numbers starting with 1 and it detected and properly idendified all the way to episode 99, but when it got to 100 emby did not recognize it. i have also have episode 101 and 102 but emby doesn't even recognize that its there and i cant even play it on emby. i need help please.
  3. Hello: Emby Setup: >> I am using Emby Server with Kodi Leia 18.3. Issue/experience: >> When I add TV Shows to Emby Server (and tag them as TV Shows) all of my files are renamed with a "SxxExx" prefix convention. Emby Server also attempts to regroup my files by adding season folders/containers on the server. The naming convention and grouping structure then passes on to Kodi as is expected. >>What I would like is for my TV Show folder structure and file naming convention to remain the same as it is on my hard drive (unmodified), is there a way to do this? If not is there a work around that can be used with "Mixed Content" tag? If a work around exists how do I enable it as, or under, a Kodi main menu item selection? Background: >> I am converting from a HTServer that ran MediaBrowser2. All of the files are DVD type VIDEO_TS files with movie.xml files and .nfo files that store all of the metadata correctly and every episode was set to display an image similar to a movie poster. These TV Shows are stored with the following naming and structure <G:\Television Series\SeriesName\Episode xxx - EpisodeTitle\VIDEO_TS>. Thank you.
  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. Hi, I was reading the wiki regarding naming convention and it suggests to create a single for sub-folder for each extra content (extras, specials, shorts, scenes, featurettes, behind the scenes, deleted scenes, interviews, trailers). I found really time consuming.. because I have to do rename a lot of files folder for each movie have... can I instead just use a single "extras" sub-folder and chuck everything in there? If so, please any con? Can I just leave them named with interview.mkv, cutscenes.mkv and so on? Thanks for any clarification
  6. I ran into an edge case in multi-version naming. I have 2 cuts of the film The Killing of a Chinese Bookie. Afaik, the cuts are only referred to as the 1976 cut and the 1978 cut. My naming is as follows: `The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976)/The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976) [1976 Cut].mkv` `The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976)/The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976) [1978 Cut].mkv` Emby is picking up the date from the version string and not from within the parenthesis. This also occurs when using the hyphen method for the versions. The result is that 2 separate films appear in my collection when they should appear as 2 different versions of the same film. While I think this should be fixed in whatever parsing routines Emby is using, if there is a manual change I can make to the nfo file in the meantime, that would be great. Thanks for all the hard work. I am happily a lifetime member.
  7. I currently use Plex and considering switching to Emby. I see that Plex uses a single movie folder with all the movies in it whereas Emby prefers separate folders for each movie. Can someone please elaborate on these two approaches and suggest if I should convert my existing library to separate folders for each movie?

    Naming Convention - Sports videos

    Dear Emby Team Quick question, I have created a new library called "my sports" where I want to keep major sports events like prior NFL Super Bowl playoff videos etc. I'm not sure of how to go about the naming convention so the metadata gets loaded accurately (like the case for movies or TV etc) Could you please give me some guidance on how I should lay out / name my sports videos? Many thanks Rob
  9. Hi all, Hope you're well Thanks for software I'm having issues using file splitting/stacking[g] I experimented with deleting file meta and "Locking items to prevent future changes" but files still appear out of order (e.g. part 1 after part 2) when I navigate into season views Please confirm my file name syntax is valid and that it's possible to use this naming feature with television (the docs are for movie)?: Curb Your Enthusiasm - s0e30 - Ricky Gervais Meets Larry David - 2006-01-05 - part 1.mkv Curb Your Enthusiasm - s0e30 - Ricky Gervais Meets Larry David - 2006-01-05 - part 2.mp4 Curb Your Enthusiasm - s0e30 - Ricky Gervais Meets Larry David - 2006-01-05 - part 3.mp4 Curb Your Enthusiasm - s0e30 - Ricky Gervais Meets Larry David - 2006-01-05 - part 4.mp4 Curb Your Enthusiasm - s0e30 - Ricky Gervais Meets Larry David - 2006-01-05 - part 5.mp4 Curb Your Enthusiasm - s0e30 - Ricky Gervais Meets Larry David - 2006-01-05 - part 6.mkv If you have any issues (e.g. questions/queries) happy to help Hope to hear back Keep up great work!

    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 Server/Music Videos/artist name/artist name - track name/VIDEO_TS/artist name - track name.vob or should I be doing something else instead? The Wiki is quite unhelpful for music videos - it just says it's the same as for movies...
  11. Hey there! Since there are multiple plugins, which can help you to manage your library like map your Genre to another one or fix any missmatch, is there anything like that for the age rating? E.g. if I would like to map all not rated movies to my maximal age rating 18, than I have to enter into every metadata of every movie and change it myself? Or is there a easy way to do it from the emby interface?
  12. I have a collection of a local tv show that runs daily (on weekdays). Suppose it's name is "Something Else", the episodes are named in the following order 1. Somthing_Else_0001.mkv 2. Somthing_Else_0002.mkv 3. Somthing_Else_0003.mkv . . . I checked out https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/TV%20naming#by-date and saw that they could be handled if I name them in the following order 1. Somthing_Else_2015-12-14.mkv 2. Somthing_Else_2015-12-15.mkv 3. Somthing_Else_2015-12-16.mkv . . . However, when I tried that, Emby collected all of them inside an "Unknown Season" season. How do I inform Emby that there is no concept of "Seasons" with this show, but only a sequential list of episodes ?
  13. hey, hi kk, there some way to put device custom name to web app, most time i using 2 or 3 clients they are chrome web apps, so its impossible to know which is that one i wanna control in the cast feature, please add at least what user is using that web client, that would help aloooot, and at the best, some kind of naming, i dont know, by some how to indentify the chrome client or the ip adress that client is using, mac adress of the pc, i dont know something like that, but the user that is using that client, it would be so much help.

    Bluray NFO Location & Naming

    I wanted to check where the Bluray nfo file should be located & how it should be named. Originally, I had these as movie.xml files in the root folder of the movie. I've upgraded to nfo files and removed xml but having this as movie.nfo was not displaying or refreshing. Some searching around the forums & wikis found that this should be now called index.nfo under the BDMV folder. I've tried this but still no data will refresh/display. If I manually refresh to fetch new metadata from Emby Theater for example it creates a file <foldername>.nfo. So I renamed my original nfo file to the folder name & refresh missing metadata & it displays as expected. Is this correct? (before I go through and manually update my other rips) Also, on a side question, should subtitle options display the name of the subtitle stream? They are present if I play this via an external player such as Media Player Classic but show as Und (Undetermined) in Emby interface. Many Thanks, AD

    IPTV Live Recording naming scheme

    IPTV / M3U recording seems to be GREAT! So far. Installation is pretty straight forward. Adding the guide is pretty simple as well. What I am having problems is not really the recording. But i am having problems on the naming of the video. It shows the title of the of the recording great. But its not adding the episode or season or even the original air date. this is what I am getting for the current naming " Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs_20170912_14051430 " I am not sure sure the of the whole naming then the first part is the current recorded date. I am sure that it may have something to do with the XML guide. And i have tried using what is given and tried using zap2it for guide as well. Anything else you can recommend that works with what i am looking for? Thanks
  16. Is there a way to name video files so that Emby will properly detect the episode number and the episode title? I have read through https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/TV%20naming but it mostly does not consider the episode title. If I use one of those conventions, then Emby does detect the episode number correctly, but I can't get it to display the episode title properly. It seems like Emby wants to detect the episode number and then use a remote database to look up the episode title to display. The problem is that I have some obscure shows that aren't in any database. The best I have come up with is <show_name>/<show_title> S<season_number>E<episode_number> With this convention, Emby detects the episode numbers correctly and shows the episodes as for example "2 - Title S01E02". Is there any way to format the name so that Emby detects the title and shows just "2 - Title" without the trailing "S01E02"?

    TV Episode Naming Incorrect

    Hi, I used iTunes before Emby and so have a TV episode structure in the form of /TV Show Name/Season 1/01 Episode Name.m4v according to https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/TV-naming#episode-naming-conventions it should be okay, to have episodes named just with episode number and episode name. But it's not working that way. I have the file “The Expanse/Season 2/06 Paradigm Shift.m4v” which results in Emby as an episode named “06 Paradigm Shift” with season number 2 and episode number field blank. So Emby doesn't recognize the “06” as episode number but part of the title. When I rename the file to “S02E06 Paradigm Shift.m4v” everything works fine and i have an episode named “Paradigm Shift” with season number 2 and episode number 6. Do have have to rename ALL of my tv media files to correctly work with Emby because the TV-Naming wiki page is incorrect. Or is there a problem with Emby? I attached both logfiles, one with scanning the libraries with the not working “06 Paradigm Shift.m4v” and one with the working “S02E06 Paradigm Shift.m4v” files. logfile_incorrect.txt logfile_working.txt
  18. I was thinking it would be a good feature to change the way Emby is naming movies when they are recorded. From: Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde (long alpha numeric character string).ts To: Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde (1941).ts The year information is available in the metadata. What do you guys think? Thanks for reading and considering!

    Problems with local IPTV lists

    Hi, I have some problems with LIVE TV. 1º - If i add a channel to a local iptv list (m3u) i cant get channel in my server until i remove and add again. Is that correct? Is that the only way yo refresh a m3u list? 2º - I have a list like this: #EXTM3U #EXTINF:-1 channel-id="100" channel-name="channel ABC" tvg-logo="http://some.logo.link.100.png"group-title="groupA",channel name http;//some.stream.link.100.m3u8 #EXTINF:-1 channel-id="101" channel-name="channel DEF" tvg-logo="http://some.logo.link.101.png"group-title="groupA",channel name http;//some.stream.link.102.m3u8 #EXTINF:-1 channel-id="102" channel-name="channel GHI" tvg-logo="http://some.logo.link.102.png"group-title="groupA",channel name http;//some.stream.link.103.m3u8 and so on..... In live-tv section on web-browser, in channels tab, the channel 101 and 707 are displayed before everything else (see image). Is any reason that happen? I did a new installation of emby-server on my local machine and the list is displayed correctly. I did a clean cache in the server, remove and re-add, refresh channels, change name of the list from aaa.m3u to bbb.m3u, change the link of the channel, remove the lines of that 2 channels e re-add. The result is all the same, if the channels are in the list the order in web-browser is that one. In the emby add-on for kodi its even worst, because the order is by name and not by the number. I have a lots of channels, they all organized in the .m3u file, they are ordered properly. I think if the order in the web-browser, and in the order apps by the way, should be the order of the .m3u file. Or in alternative, it should be possible to order manually or by other criteria. If i add a xmtv file the order in the mapping list is the order in the files, so i cant understand way the view of the daily basis its not the same thing. I think this problem should be resolved if i do a clean install, but since i have the server running on a slow machine and i have a lots of media added to him, the reconfiguration will be a nightmare. I moved the data folder to a backup (to do a test) and start emby-server, its basically a new installation because all the settings are gone, i added the list and everything is fine, so i assume that its somting wrong with my db. 3º - In other scenario if i add the list with tvg-id tag, the names of every channel appear 2 times like 101 101, i don't understand why too. Maybe because the tvg-id is used to get the number and the name, but if that's the case the interface should display only one of them, even if i use the tvg-id and the tvg-name, the interface shows the same and complitly ignore tvg-name. 4º - Last but not least Its a suggestion. Would be awesome if the emby deal with the time-in xmltv, like, my xmltv have channels from different countries, and the hours are displayed like 201609011200 -0200, in this case the program is start 10:00 UTC, so if i am in UTC +1 in my time should be 11:00. _______ To all developers a huge thank you for this awesome media server.Keep up the good work!!

    Possible filename problem

    Hello, I found another problem. Some of my files simply will not play when I use the app to send them to chromecast. They do play fine in the app and the webview though. I suspect it happens if the files have special characters like ? or : . Some examples of filenames that will not play: Re: Life in a different world from zero - s01e01.mkv Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto - s01e01.mkv There are no errors in the normal logfiles. However if I force transcoding I DO get errors. Adding an example log here. transcode-00db808c-d507-4f1f-8759-f33bd77f243b.txt
  21. Hi. What I'm using emby is for mostly hollywoods movies, some american TV shows, and many Japan Animes, Korean TV shows. The problem is, the TV contents other than USA's are not recognized good enough by current TV episode naming conventions (https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/TV-naming) even though metadata system works very well with correct season/episode numbers. Here's the example: - An.American.Show.S01E04.PROPER.720p.HDTV.x265.AnonymousRelease.mkv -> Season 1, Episode 4 (OK) - [AnonymousRelease] A Japanese Anime - 05 RAW (TX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4 -> Season 1280, Episode 720 (Wrong) - A.Korean.Show.E37.160109.HDTV.H264.720p-AnonymousRelease.mp4 -> Season 1601, Episode 09 (Wrong) Honestly it is fun sometimes to fix them manually, but it would be better if it can be done by itself. Is there any method to control naming convention? If not, is there anyone provide the way to change it or add various contents type other than just "TV"? - Current Emby server version in using: 3.0.5849.22633
