FR: Control Actor order within Metadata Manager


Necker
 Share

Recommended Posts

The clients display the Cast & Crew in the order that they appear in the xml file. Sometimes the order that they are in is not what I want and so I would like to change it.

 

Therefore within the metadata editor could a simple up/down arrow be added to each actor so that the order they appear in can be controlled.

The ability to adjust the DISPLAY ORDER for PEOPLE in the Metadata editor of Emby Server would be useful.

 

There are times when the lead actors in a series or movie are not listed near the top of the CAST sections of TheMovieDB or TheTVDB when they are grabbed. They can get buried later in the listings or at times you may have to go to the MORE section of ITEM INFORMATION page to find them. The current way to adjust for this is to go into the TVSHOW.nfo or MOVIE.nfo file and edit the SORT ORDER tag of the actors you want higher up in the listing. If possible, it would be useful if in the PEOPLE section of the METADATA EDITOR there were UP / DOWN selectors to adjust the display order. Similar to what is available in the HOME SCREEN SETTINGS section to adjust the LIBRARY ORDER.

Thought my request in 2018 was the first. Beat me by 4 years!

@@Luke commented at the time that it was a good idea. Hopefully it will make it into a future release.

Please add an option to determine the order of the cast. In some films, the cast is shown in the wrong order.

@michalkaluza I assume you have TVDB as your primary movie provider, correct?

@LukeI thought we discussed this but for TVDB are Featured actors sorted first?  As it would appear from image only Sort order is used.  I see the JSON is correct, but the UI is not.  This is reproducible.

"isFeatured": true, "sort": 9 should be before "isFeatured": false, "sort": 1 in the UI

This problem is also when you using themoviedb.org. First screen is from web page themoviedb, second one after identyfy the movie by emby. As you can see the order is not the same.

TVDB is the primary defect here.
