Emby changes movie data after conversion (next to orignal file), Bug ?

Hi,

first of all I wanna say that I'm really very happy with emby (and the great support here in the forum) !

... and after testing plex and emby, I will walk further with emby :), and I'm very close to buy the lifetime pass.

 

Don't know if it's a bug:

If I convert a movie (from MKV to TV setting, MP4) and replace the original file, everything works great. Movie is replaced, movie data (TMDBID, IMDBID) remains obviously the same.

If I convert a movie with setting: next to original file. (Same TV setting), it seems that the movie is "looked up" again in the movie database, but obviously connected wrong.

Maybe Emby doesn't use the ID-data from the orignal movie file (NFO) and probably searches the movie new based on the title?

See screenshot, after conversion of the "towering inferno" I get another movie, which doesn't fit :(

Using Emby Version 2.0.9 (5) on osx.

Files/movies are separated in different movie folders, example: FLAMMENDES_INFERNO

and inside this folder all corresponding files, like: FLAMMENDES_INFERNO_[BLURAY].mkv....

All movie lookup/connection is done via reading the *.NFO file, thanks to emby.

It seems to me that the new converted movie: "FLAMMENDES_INFERNO_[BLURAY] - tv.mkv" is looked up via title and not via the original nfo-file-infos.

And P.S.:
Shouldn't or couldn't the TV-Version (or Mobile version) after conversion be added as "version"?

Hi, yes that is the ideal, but currently this only happens if both the original and new files follow our multi-version naming scheme:

https://support.emby.media/support/solutions/articles/44001159102-movie-naming

So this is sort of an open issue of ours, that after converting you might have to rename the original file depending on what it was before.

Yes this will be a quirk as Folder and Filenames do not match either.

Each version must begin with the folder name, followed by " - ".

Only current way around this right now is the Auto grouping plugin.

Thanks for your inputs and advises. Basically I got it to work:)

 

Right now I'm working on renaming folders, files for movies, I have in different formats or versions.

Can you explain, why the "extra/other named file-version) is always on top (in selection field)?

As I thought it probably should sort alphabetic order I changed the "normal" to: "Standardversion" and the Extended Version to: Version Xtra DVD Extended, but the extended Version still stays on top:(

Any ideas? Thank you.

Hi, I can't explain without more information, no.

In order to prioritize direct playing over transcoding, Emby apps will automatically choose the one that is the most efficient version to play, based on app quality settings, media information of the file, server quality settings, user permissions, bandwidth restrictions, etc.

So any of those could be the the reason for one to be chosen over the other, so we'd have to look at those things in detail. Thanks.

Hi, thank you @Luke for this explanation.

This basically clears things up. I have a DVD-rip and a BLURAY-rip, but I tried to "name" the versions in a way, that the Bluray-Version is on top (as it's fitting the bluray-cover) and the DVD should be the second option.

Maybe it's better to keep DVD and BLURAY separated in folders then with different covers.
