  1. Hi there, for several reasons, I would like to restructure my Server, meaning I would like to rename and / or move paths/folders/directories that are (partly) related to emby’s library. For example, I would like to rename the folder "Media" to "Video" (as I d like to split up audio and video into separate folders). I am supposing, such an action would have an impact on emby’s library, meaning media would no longer be found, etc. But my question is, if I could fix this by just renaming/adjusting paths within the library/libraries or if this would lead to data/media no longer being found or any other impacts such as metadata being lost, etc. In other words: - Can I adjust a media path within a library in emby? (for examle from "/Media/Animation/" to "/Video/Animation/"? - What impact will such an adjustment have? (f.e. Meta-Data and / or Images being replaced, watch-states getting lost, … Thank you in advance for your kind support. Best regards, hi2hello

    Music Libary after Emby Update

    Hi, after Updating my Emby from a Version 4.5.x.x to my Music libary is broken. YES, I read something about a rescan of the music libary etc, but the rescan doesn't seem to change anything. Even setting the kind of structure from "different" to one of the "perfectly structured" options doesn't change anything. I have a few Thousand Song all structured in A -> Musicans -> Albums -> Tracks B -> Musicans -> Albums -> Tracks and so on. What is very strange is, it shows exactly 4 Musicans in the libary and exactly 1 Album of each of these musicans.... I don't really get how that could happen. Ideas how to fix this? What of the 3 structure options should I choose for my structure or do I have to restructure it and put all musicans in the root folder?
  3. Morning, I have a library setup as "home video", such that it doesn't try to do any magic with the files (i.e. TV show organisation). If I have a folder with a single video file in it, it ignores the folder and just shows the file in the main list. Example (expected view): Folder 1 > 10 videos Folder 2 > 5 videos Folder 3 > 1 video (called test.mp4) Folder 4 > 5 videos Will display as: Folder 1 Folder 2 Folder 4 test.mp4 Is there a setting / reason it ignores folders if they only have one file? Thanks
  4. Hello. I am a new user and this is my first post in the forum. I've read https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/674-media-files-folders-structure/ , nevertheless I'd like to keep my movies directory structure as it always was: /movies/<director>/<year>-<name>-<other info>. Is there any way to pass this structure as an option or hint to the database scraper with variable substitutions like %D %y %n, etc? If this was asked before please reply with a link to the post. Thank you
  5. Hi, I'm in the process of testing out an upgrade to my HTPC, using Emby as the server (which looks awesome, love the webUI!) and Kodi as the front end client (which also looks great) - I previously used MediaPortal. I am happy with the way TV Series' are displayed but I'm struggling to get my Movies and other media (Doco's, StandUp, etc) in a useable viewing format. I have looked over these forums and the interwebs for a few days now and I'm still struggling to get this - either its not possible or I'm doing something wrong... so its time to see if the experts can help Background on my setup; I have an extensive movie collection (2000+) which I like to view similar to the way they are stored on my PC, via a single master genre/category (ie Back to the Future is in Adventure), rather than every single movie been displayed on one huge video wall!! I realise I could search and filter for a movie, or movie type, but I like to just go into a folder of my category types and watch say an Adventure movie when I feel like that type of movie. Further smart filtering at this point could give me the newly added, unwatched, etc... I have about 12 different categories (which would be at the Level 1 [L1] structure level) and then inside these are movies (in single folders) as well as boxsets/collections (which would be L2 structure). See Image [server File Structure.PNG] The view structure I'm looking for is to be able to open Movies from the main homescreen (skin link to emby video node), which then displays my 12 custom categories (primary genre), where I can then choose Adventure, followed by the Back to the Future Boxset, and then choose which of the 3 in the collection I want to watch. I'm looking for similar nesting of content for my Doco's, StandUp, where you might have a comedian with multiple shows (Eddie Murphy; Raw & Delirious) that I want displayed side-by-side at the L2 level. Emby webUI (screen grabs below), and the iPad app mimic exactly my folder structure! Its just Kodi that isn't playing nice Doco, StundUp Categories : [Emby webUI - Doco, Etc Library.PNG] Movies Categories: [Emby webUI - Movie Library.PNG] L1 - Adventure: [Emby webUI - Movie Library - L1 Adventure.PNG] L2 - BttF Boxset: [Emby webUI - Movie Library - L1 Adventure - L2 BttF Boxset.PNG] Emby Libraries; Emby Video Node (Type: Movies) - Movies Emby Video Node (Type: Movies) - Doco's, StandUp, Etc Emby Video Node (Type: TV) - TV Series [Emby Library Setup.PNG] These are the options I have tried thus far; I have tried setting up links in the skin to video-addon-emby-Movie ([Emby Video Nodes.PNG]) but this just gives me the whole list of movies, in this case all my Animation and Adventure movies clumped together and it shows all boxset movies individually ([Kodi Movie Structure.PNG]) rather than as one sub folder like the Emby webUI does. I have also tried using smart playlists with a filter for Path Contains = \Adventure\ (ie primary category), which is how MediaPortal achieves it, but for some reason this just returns a blank output - somehow by adding this all the movies get filtered away. I tried this in both Direct & Addons mode thinking that the Path field may only get parsed in the former. no luck. Finally, I have also attempted to add an additional tag, putting my category in there in the hope I could filter for it but that didn't appear to work, it seems to only accept the name of your Emby Video Node (ie Movies, or Doco's, StandUp, Etc). My Setup; Emby Server : Version 3.0.5871.0 Emby for Kodi : Stable (1.03), I also tried (2.2.4) Kodi : Version 16, Jarvis. Skins: Titan & AEON NOX (both didn't help, happy to try others) I hope I've given enough background on the problem and how I'd like my setup. Looking forward to hearing from anyone who's faced similar issues and how they got around it. This new setup seems really powerful, I'd love to get over this little custom view issue and keep using Emby on a permanent basis. I'm also open to suggestions on other ways of handling large media sets if what I want is just too much Cheers in Advance, Dewey
  6. Server Version 3.0.5675.1 Browser Firefox 39.0 Zip files make traversing folder structure behave erratically. Recursive albums (folders) does not appear to be supported. For example: Family-> ........Immediate/ ...................Summer Vacations/ ...................................1990/ ...................................1991/ ........Cousin A/ ........Grandma/ In Album mode (top level folder) contents are flatten for display (i.e. contents of all sub-folders are displayed along with contents of top-level folder). Icon for sub-folders display name of parent folder. (This may go away if recursive album(folder) structure is handled differently than it is currently. Poster/Backdrop option is not present in all Photo views (i.e., Top-level and most sub-folders). In those views that do offer Poster/Backdrop option, selecting an option here changes that option in other Home videos views. There appear to be many other anomalies (mainly traversing the metadata) either due to recursive albums not being supported or misunderstanding on my part. Emby for Media Center appears to handle recursive albums as expected.
