    New Metadata Plugin: TV Maze

    Starting from today, a new metadata plugin is available in the catalog: TV Maze Metadata Provider This is a highly efficient metadata provider for TV series which is safe to add as it has very low impact on library scanning performance. Features: A single API request per series provides all data: series, season, episode, seriesimage, seasonimage, episodeimage and extra images (banner, logo, backdrop) New 2-stage caching mechanism Single JSON file per series/person In-Memory Cache with auto-expiration Failed lookup caching (with auto-expiration) Uses TvMaze update checking mechanism Works by timestamp comparison Cached files do not expire by fixed interval Added episode matching by name and air date Metadata Providers TvMazeSeriesProvider TvMazeEpisodeProvider TvMazeSeasonProvider TvMazePersonProvider Image Providers TvMazeSeriesImageProvider TvMazeEpisodeImageProvider TvMazeSeasonImageProvider TvMazePersonImageProvider Limitations Provides metadata in English language only (but it is able to identify series and episodes by original title)

    New Plugin: TV Maze Metadata Provider

    Hi, this is a new metadata provider plugin for Emby, supporting TV Series, Seasons and Episodes as well as Season-Images. The data is retrieved from http://www.tvmaze.com/ The plugin should operate pretty stable, I've been running the code for a few months now without problems. But what's the benefit, now? Well, you got to make your own decision about how useful that additional data could be for you! Metadata handling in Emby is not a very transparent process. To compare the different metadata retrieved by the installed providers, it's probably best to use the Metadata Viewer Plugin (http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/32984-new-plugin-metadata-viewer/). After installing, you need to check your metadata settings for Series, Seasons and Episodes. You should choose the priorities based on your experience from comparing metadata results as described in the previous paragraph. If you're already satisfied with your current metadata retrieval or just don't want to make a significant change at this time, I recommend the following: Disable TV Maze for Series and Episodes (Emby already comes with 3 built-in providers for those) But enable TV Maze for Seasons (and Season images): The reason: Currently, there's only one provider for Season data and there are many cases where TV Maze has some season descriptions when the other (MovieDb) doesn't Download: https://github.com/softworkz/Emby.Plugins/releases/tag/TvMazeBeta1
  3. Hi Was just looking at some NFO's and noticed that the TVMaze plugin is getting a little carried away adding entries to the NFO files for TVShow, Season and Episodes an example from "Eureka" TVShow.nfo ...... </episodeguide> <season>-1</season> <episode>-1</episode> <status>Ended</status> <tvmazeid>542</tvmazeid> <tvmazeid>542</tvmazeid> <tvmazeid>542</tvmazeid> <tvmazeid>542</tvmazeid> <tvmazeid>542</tvmazeid> <tvmazeid>542</tvmazeid> <tvmazeid>542</tvmazeid> <tvmazeid>542</tvmazeid> <tvmazeid>542</tvmazeid> <tvmazeid>542</tvmazeid> <tvmazeid>542</tvmazeid> <tvmazeid>542</tvmazeid> <tvmazeid>542</tvmazeid> <tvmazeid>542</tvmazeid> </tvshow> I guess its every time a scan/refresh is done another one is added? My assumption is this is the plugin doing this? I hope the solution will remove the extra entries rather than just stop the extras
