mr.alien posted a topic in General/WindowsHello, I am absolutely new to any mediaserver. I used Kodi only from a HDD on my Nvidia Shield. I have a QNAP now, installed and configured Emby now and I have two questions/problems. 1: is it possible to get all metadata (which worked with downloading for most files) BUT show the actual filename and not the metadata name while still having pictures, info and actor info and so forth? this was possible in kodi but i couldnt figure out how to do it with emby 2: i tried to stream to my android phone using the official android emby app. all worked well, the direct stream with no transcoding works. then i tried to use a smaller resolution, which forced my qnap to transcode. everything works fine, on my external ssd i see that the transcoding cache files are created, the lower resolution showed on the phone, everything great. BUT when i ended watching the movie and closed the emby app on my phone, the server still proceeded transcoding the file. even after shutting down the emby server in qnap i see the process still in the services. when i started the emby server again and tried to transcode another movie to my phone, i saw a second instance of the transcoding on the qnap server and i saw cache files for both movies being created. is there a possibility to quit a transcode? it seems kind of silly to keep transcoding the movie even if i dont want to watch it after all. this way i cant just scroll through a movie on the go and decide i dont want to watch it. because after 2 or 3 transcodes my qnap will be at 100% cpu usage since i dont yet have emby pass for hw transcode. i would appreciate some advice
rafinha posted a topic in General/WindowsHi guys, I have my collection and I would like to follow what emby recommend as standard. It is possoble rename my current catalog? this will affect my current watched movies/tv series? Thanks
I've recently started using Emby and I've found it to be an amazing tool for media management. I'm also using Sonarr to manage television shows. Sonarr also keeps track of the quality of the media. I believe this is based off of the name of the file. Currently, when I add media to my library in Emby I pass the files through FileBot and use the convention "Series Name - S0XE0X - Episode Name". When Sonarr sees this it just assumes it's a 720P (default for *.mkv) files when they are really of higher quality. I was thinking that I could just send the files back through FileBot and append something along the lines of [1080P][WEBDL] so that Sonarr categorizes things properly. I have a few questions, however. 1. Are square brackets the correct syntax for Emby to ignore characters in a file name? For example, "Series Name - S05E04 - Episode Name[1080P][WEBDL].mkv"? 2. Can I just rename files on the file system without affecting anything on the Emby side? Will the existing metadata still be valid or would those names need to change? 3. If the metadata needs to change would it be easier to just delete the existing metadata and then use the Metadata Manager to refresh everything? 4. Do I need to tell Emby about this new naming convention? Will it get angry and stop loving me if I make changes to the file system files? 5. Will these mutant file names ever show up on client side programs (i.e. Emby web interface, Kodi, etc.)? I'm assuming the names displayed on these programs are from the metadata and not the filename. 6. If I wanted to go to an extreme as to just delete my library in Emby, rename the files, recreate the library and have Emby re-scan the content and download everything would that be an option? 6. Is there anything else I should be aware of before undertaking this task? It's not a huge deal if Sonarr shows the wrong file quality. This is more of a nice to have but I'd like to take advantage of all the features that all the software pieces provide so if I could make these file changes without affecting Emby adversely that would be great. If not then I'd rather keep Emby happy and chugging along and just live with the inaccurate Sonarr data. Thanks for any help, comments, feedback, and/or guidance (both positive and negative).
