  1. I'm relatively new to Emby, but I've been extremely impressed with it so far One issue I've been trying to figure out how to address is TV shows that legitimately have a season 0, such as MST3K. I'm finding that all of the season 0 episodes are getting put into the same display folder with the various specials that I have in my collection, and that folder is called "Specials". I have all of my season 0 episodes in a subdirectory called "Season 0", and all of the specials in a separate subdirectory called "Specials". I've also tested enabling and disabling the "Display specials wit

    Collection Specials

    Hi, Is there any way to add special features to a collection? I have converted my Pink Panther collection and the special features are on the series rather than one film. I have the films in a general movies folder. Would it be easier to put them into a collection folder with a specials folder in that?
  3. Latest Stable version of Server and latest version of Theatre Title says it all really - I was watching the TV Series Grantchester and this has a Christmas Special at the end of series 2/start of series 3. The special episode is stored in the specials folder and if you navigate to the season folders under the TV series - the episode is displayed in the both the specials season and at the start of season 3. However, if you use the Play Next Up button, the special is not listed - it jumps from season 2 episode 6 to season 3 episode 1. the episodes are all correctly identified and labelled, i
  4. I have a split folder structure that looks like: Multimedia -> Movies (1080p) -> Spider-Man: Homecoming -> Avengers: Endgame -> etc -> Movies (UHD) -> Spider-Man: Homecoming -> Avengers: Endgame -> etc -> TV -> etc -> Music -> etc and I absolutely need the separation between 1080p and UHD movies at the physical data level. But to stop duplication on Emby Theater, and to not keep the headache of separating 1080p and UHD into different libraries (just imagine having to remember which movies you do
  5. Hello, I have set Specials to show in the season they air in (within the emby dashboard). In the web app, they show up fine. However, when trying to find them on my Fire stick they don't show up within the season. The "watched indicator" shows that there is 1 unwatched episode for the season but when I go into it, it only shows all the normal episodes (which I've watched already), but no special. The only other way I can view the special (aside from the Specials folder) is if I go over into All Episodes from the season select screen, and then there it is. So how do I get it to display
  6. Bit of a strange thing happening. Specials are organized in season 0 or season 00 folders. I don't know when the issue started but I have specials that play after each season is finished playing, even though they are set to display/play only in the season aired. For example: Stargate SG-1 The Ark of Truth(S00E07) and Continuum(S00E08) are both displayed in Season 10 as Episodes 21 and 22 (correctly) and not in any of the other seasons. Yet they play after the end of each of the 10 seasons. I had "old" nfo files for each and deleted/refreshed the metadata, completed a full scan of

    Specials placement

    Just wondering if there's a way to get TV specials to show up where you want them too. Fr'instance I just added The Thick Of It, which has two specials between seasons 2 and 3. I tried adding them to season 3 in the hope they would appear at the beginning, but they don't actually appear at all.
  8. Per another thread ( https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/38173-watched-status-resets-with-moves-between-library/&do=findComment&comment=484965 ) video files that do not have an external ID (eg, TheMovieDB, IMDB) associated with them in Emby will lose their Watched status if you ever move the files to another location. This is because currently the only way to determine the uniqueness of the file (if it does not have an external ID) is to use the full path to the file. Now, most items will have an external ID, but the big exception can be Movie Extras and TV Specials. Som

    (A few) specials

    Have a few specials for the World At War in their own Specials folder. The titles I gave them I lifted (I think) straight from the name of said special. Emby has decided to turn a few of them into Series / Episode items based on the years mentioned in their titles - Didn't happen to spot anything in the Wiki

    Was just wondering if there's a particular convention to add a special within a TV series. The Wiki says use Specials, Season 0 or Season 00, but If I wanted to add a special within say season 22 of something...
  11. I'm a long time user of Win 7 and Emby for WMC with the Chocolate theme. I've tweaked everything (lots of trial and error) and I have everything running smoothly. There is now a problem with the Specials display on the Details page. As you can see in the Before screenshot the captions are either missing or partially hidden. I've determined that the problem is with the resolution of the video clips. Most of the clips are 640x360 but the three in the lower left are 640x294 or 640x268 etc. When I remove these three clips from my extras folder the Specials display is all good as shown in t
  12. In a nfo for series specials one can define where the episode should show up: http://kodi.wiki/view/NFO_files/TV_episodes <displayseason>1</displayseason> <displayepisode>9</displayepisode> Emby doesn't import this special episode info. Airs before and airs after just keeps empty in the metadata manager.
  13. Hi guys, I have quite a Bluray Collection, both movies and TV shows. When I rip my blurays, I like to keep every little extras present to have them accessible in emby. (btw, my english may be a little weird, sorry, it's not my first language) For movies, everything is quite simple, you put them in the "extra" folder and voilà everything is at the right place. TV shows have little more complexe extras (or specials). You have episode extras, like deleted scenes, reminders, promos, episode specific making of, etc. You have season extras, like special episodes, making of, gag reel, comic-con ev
  14. When ripping a movie from my collection I make sure to name any specials as they are named on the blu-ray and/or blu-ray.com When I place the movie in my collection and scan it rather than naming the specials the same as the file name it names them the same title as the main movie. I than go into emby server and edit each special with the file name. Is there a way to set it to automatically name them the same as the file name?
  15. The last 2 beta versions of emby server 3.0.5925.0 I am unable to open any titles in ie or chrome (Version 49.0.2623.110 m) when I click on a title from the home screen it goes into that folder i.e. animation but it will not open the title it just shows the spinning circle and freezes up. It seems to affect emby for wmc as it also will not load any images not already in place i.e. some actor images are blank. This has happened before but a normal reboot would fix it, now it does not. I am also having an issue with special features in movies and tv shows. I label them something like De
  16. server-63587635200.zip I am on server Version 3.0.5801.0 and I do not have thumbnails on chapters even after "chapter image extraction" succeeds. I am also missing thumbnails on all "specials". I uninstalled, reinstalled the server as well as clearing the cash. Another issue I am having is on the main page where collections are listed it is not showing the backdrops for my concert collection. I have removed and re added using the edit option in the media manager as well as adding the backdrop to the collection folder. I thought this may be related. Wen I try and attach the log file yo
  17. Hi I've just conformed my entire library of specials for Top Gear and Doctor Who, and doing so entailed giving them special-episode-numbers, like S00E84, and putting them in a folder named "Season 0". Now, though, my specials-folders contains a lot of specials, and they all have their bogus episode number (e.g. S0 E84) prepended to their title, which makes it really irritating to look through in the clients. That number doesn't really tell me anything, just the order, and they're already shown in the right order. They're especially irritating, because I've had to change episode numbers
  18. Hi All, I have thought about this one for a while now and with a recent hardware upgrade, I have had to go through my TV Series again and un-tick the "Display specials within seasons they aired in" option again manually as I don't like the specials showing in each season and it's time for me to request a feature. Would it be possible to have a global setting for this within the server to enable/disable this option so if I add new content and forget to un-tick or for whatever reason need to rebuild my library you don't have to go through each season and do this manually. Thanks, Ed
  19. I like the special featues of movies, tv series, etc... it would be nice if i could have all the deleted scenes in a folder called deleted scenes. The way it works now i have to add "Deleted - " to the title of the deleted scene. This goes for more than deleted scenes of course.. Goofs, Featruettes, makings of, cast and crew interfiews, you name it. Now I don't need to have nested folders, just one level of folders. MBT doesn't even need to represent it as a folder...you can use whatever you feel would be good...just a line separating one folder from the rest would work for me it j
  20. 3.0.5502.3522 Specials (S00E01 tested in particular) have a propensity to appear too soon in the next up calculation. Assuming, for testing, saved changes to the attributes - airs before/after season/episode, are reread after a library scan I have an S00E01 which i can not get to NOT appear 1st for a completely unwatched show under next up...The correct location should be at end of season 1. But S00E01 stubbornly shows up in next up. Possibly related to this http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/13324-special-watched-status-is-affecting-series-next-up-presence/?h
  21. I noticed with the latest beta of media browser classic it now supports specials which I have confirmed are working in the chocolate theme. I was wondering what the time frame was for specials in the subdued theme. Thank you for your time and this is still my family's favorite theme. Thank you for all your hard work.

    Specials support

    I really like the new chapter selection in media browser classic. Is there any chance specials can be added in the same way?
  23. I just changed afew special folder posters around and have now noticed some of them are not displaying. The posters are in the root folder like this: /TV Series /season01 /Specials /folder.jpg /season-specials-poster.jpg Is season-specials-poster.jpg the correct naimng convention?
  24. Hi Lee, You know I love both of your themes! And you are constantly updating them to make them even better. I'd like to request a little more work from you, LOL. Would you consider adding Display Specials Within Seasons as seen here? Thank you so much!
  25. Hi. I recently upgraded from MB2 & am enjoying learning my way around and much improved performance. What is the correct structure for TV Specials? I looked in the Library structure info but there's no mention of specials for TV there, only specials for movies. In MB2 I used to create a 'Season 00' folder and MB would pick up the specials from there. This doesn't seem to be working in MB3 so I'm now trying using a 'specials' folder in the Series folder. I'm running MB3 Server Version 3.0.5031.21343 Example: Path: \\Server\3tb\Max's TV Shows\Kung Fu Panda Legends of Aw
