    Version Grouping and Collections

    Hi All, I have tried searching for a solution but have not had success. If there has already been a thread for this please let me know. Context: I have both 4K and HD versions of both Movies and Shows, and these are kept in different folders, but in the same library. In other words, 4K movies and HD Movies are in the same library, and another library for 4K and HD TV Shows. I've kept the 4K and HD content in different folders because I have two instances each of Radarr and Sonarr configured. For example one instance of Radarr for 4K content, and another for HD content. Another reason they are in separate folders is because of space, as 4K content are on its own drive. Also I have put the 4K and HD content in the same library to allow version grouping. TV Shows are set up to do automatic version grouping. Movies I am still doing manually as I have not managed to get the plugin working yet. Problem: I have noticed that whether its a Movie or TV show when there are two versions grouped together and you add it to a collection, it only seems to add one of the versions to the collection. Therefore sometimes when you search for a movie and open it, it may show the version not added to the collection. I know its the different version as the covers are different on both. Changing the version in the drop down does not change this. I have taken a video to best show what I mean. I can manually resolve this by splitting the versions and adding both to collections, then merging again. This is easy to do for Movies but is time consuming and easy to miss one. For TV shows you need to disable Automatic Show Merging, add to collections, then enable it again. This is also very time consuming. Does anyone have any advice on a better way to do this? Is the problem the way I've set it up, or is this perhaps something that could be addressed in a future version? Emby Versions and Collections.mp4
  2. What is the recommended way to configure a library for multiple versions of the same content? I mean this in context of different versions of the same movie, where at any given viewing you might want to choose between different versions of the same movie: Theatrical Cut, Director's Cut, 2D, 3D, 25th Anniversary, Despecialized, etc. (I'm not interested in multiple versions of the exact same content optimized for different playback devices. The multiple versions system solves this problem. I'm trying to understand how to manage the aesthetics of multiple versions of the same show.) Thanks!
  3. Hello, I have something of a versions question, although I think mine differs a bit from typical. What's the recommended method, or advice, to manage multiple encodings of the same video, and, as a side question, how does Emby handle that? I want to keep an h.265 and h.264 encode of the same thing. Ideally, they'd look like a single video, and the engine would choose, preferentially, h.265 for remote clients, where supported and not explicitly over-ridden by by the client. i.e. take the 3Mbps h.265 preferentially to the 12Mbps h.264, if not manually selected from the client side. There's enough h.265 direct streaming support now amongst my friends/fam hardware that I'm finding it beneficial to keep both an h.265 version around. I've seen for multiple versions, a collection is usually recommended, but I don't really find that to be that great of a solution for this, and I'm hoping there might be some other approach. In particular, expecting/training my users to select the correct version may be a bit much. Thanks!
  4. Hi all, I've posted a similar topic before. Then user ebr asked me to place my topic in the appropriate forum. Since I'm convinced this is a feature request I'll try to formulate my question more in that fashion. Introduction I've purchased Emby Premiere because I wanted to make use of the Download/Sync functionality. Sadly I don't use it, because of the way it's implemented. Feature Requests It would be really nice to have the Users "Download & Sync" settings and behavior to be aligned with the Users "Media Playback" settings and behavior. Explanation part 1 So what does this mean? It means that in the Emby settings (Server -> Users -> User) the following configuration is possible for "Media Playback": It would be really convenient to have the exact same options in the "Download & Sync" section of the same page, which now only contains the following: Why? I only wan't some really efficient/cheap transcoding on my server like subtitles, audio and media container (mkv/mp4). No video encoding/transcoding! Because it's too expensive + I'm really sure all my devices can decode H264 and all my movies are H264. Not sure why Emby something things it need to re-encode H264 to H264, but it does. Explanation part 2 The second part of this feature request is about the behavior. It would be really nice to have the exact (or at least the setting to enable this) behavior when you click "Play" (Streaming a movie/Media Playback) and when you Click Download (or Sync). This means that in both scenarios the mobile Emby app (iOS, Android, Browser, etc) will accept the options you filled in on the movie/serie page. For example, when I have this options enabled on my Android phone (notice Subtitles and Version): So I've selected a version called "Mobile" which is 720p H264 including AAC stereo audio and English .srt subtitles. I'm 100% sure all my (portable) devices can playback this. Clicking the Play button will: Play the "Mobile" 720p H264 version with the English .srt subtitles. As expected. On each (portable) device without any problem. Clicking the Download button will, depending on the device I'm on: Download the "Mobile" 720p H264 version with the English .srt subtitles. As expected; Download the "Mobile" 720p H264 version without English .srt subtitles. Download another version (sometimes even a 8GB one) with or without English .srt subtitles Takes the "Mobile" or a random other version and starts transcoding the video and/or the audio and afterwards downloads the transcoded version with or without English .srt subtitles. It wouldn't be a surprise that pressing the Download button is a surprise every time, but the nice thing is that it doesn't have to! Please let me know what you think of this idea. It doesn't have to replace the existing implementation, but in my opinion it would be a very nice addition to at least make the option available to treat "Downloads" the same as "Streams". Have a nice Holiday Season (Fijne kerstadagen in Dutch)!
  5. I have a problem going on since a few versions can't tell you from when it started exactly. I have two shared locations and when I have the same media on the two different locations, Emby properly detect both versions but doesn't want to play any of them. I have an emby server on a windows box and the two shared locations are on other servers. It works if I separate the versions. I can do that for a film but for a series it's awfull. Emby log.txt

    Version Drop Down Order

    Good afternoon all, I am using a Mixed Content library, and I am getting different results when viewing the movie in Theater vs a web browser, vs Android phone vs Android tablet. What should be determining the default version of a movie and what determines the version drop down order? Below is the folder I am working with and my naming convention. Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope - Special Edition.nfo <sorttitle>Star Wars 4.0</sorttitle> Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope - Star Wars.nfo <sorttitle>Star Wars 4.1</sorttitle> When viewing the folder in Emby Theater and my Samsung Note 9 using the downloaded app from Google Play, it defaults to 'Special Edition' and the Version: drop down is listed in order of Special Edition Star Wars This is what I want (don't hate, the kids like the new version better ) But when viewing the movie in Firefox or on my kids Asus ZenPad 3S 10 tablets which runs an Android OS and installs Emby from the Google Play Store like my phone, it defaults to 'Star Wars' and the drop down order is Star Wars Special Edition Any thoughts on how I can get the browser and the kids tablets to be in my preferred setup like Theater and my Note 9? Thanks for any ideas!
  7. Hi, having issues with my TV episodes showing up as versions rather than individual episodes. In the meta data editor (attached) it’s connected to the correct episode but when I go to play it in the main screen (attached) it shows multiple versions all in the drop down. When there is more than one season for a show many episodes show up there. To play any show I have to trawl through and find the right one each time.
  8. Hi there. First of all sorry for my englisch but I'm not a native speaker. I got problems with the multiple versions mentioned in the wiki. My file structure is like: /movies/genre/movie (year) or if its a collection: /movies/genre/collectionname/movie (year) I tried to name the movies like this: /movies/genre/movie (year)/moviename - directorscut /movies/genre/movie (year)/moviename [directors cut] both didn't work worked. Is the problem that it would only work if there are no genre folders? if this is the case it is pretty terrible because to have hunderts of folders in one directory sucks. is there a way arround this?
  9. In Media Browser Theater we have the ability to tag trailers, and quality of the movie such as 720p and 1080p, but it would be helpful to have a way to tag Extended Cut vs Theatrical release. I maintain multiple versions of the same movie in the same folder, such as the Hobbit 1080p Theatrical Release, as well as the Hobbit 1080p Extended Release. It would be nice if Media Browser Theater would display this as another option as it does with trailers.
