Hello Support,

I'd like to store movie collection using the year as first info to respect the release date of every movie.

For example, consider the Jurassic Park Collection, I'd like to store it in this way:

(1993) Jurassic Park

(1997) Il mondo perduto - Jurassic Park

(2001) Jurassic Park III

etc..

In this way, I get ordered files in my folder and it would be really nice if Emby could support this kind of naming, thanks!

I just realized that maybe the problem is the one reported here.

I will check again when the bug will be fixed, and in case, I will close this feature request.

I know, but I spoke about the way I store the file on my hd.

But your log shows proper querying with this naming scheme with year first.

Have not tested but what issue are you having beside the parser not handling the multiple periods in Italian name translation.

If I write the year as first info in the filename, the query does not return any result

You can try by yourself

(Year) filename.extension => NO RESULTS
https://api.themoviedb.org/3/search/movie?api_key=‌{f6bd687ffa63cd282b6ff2c6877f2669}‌&query=(1970) Lo Chiamavano Trinita'....mkv&language=it&year=1970

(Year) filename => NO RESULTS
https://api.themoviedb.org/3/search/movie?api_key=‌{f6bd687ffa63cd282b6ff2c6877f2669}‌&query=(1970) Lo Chiamavano Trinita'...&language=it&year=1970

filename (Year) => RESULT OK
https://api.themoviedb.org/3/search/movie?api_key=‌{f6bd687ffa63cd282b6ff2c6877f2669}‌&query=Lo Chiamavano Trinita'...&language=it&year=1970

Tmdb has a specific year api call. In emby you can get the year from the baseitemDto.

you can then filter by this.

i don’t think there is anything emby needs to add, you need to set your filters on your folders to display in this style and they will be saves in user preferences

Appears to work here, tested folder and flat structure.

Need to see server log for specific example that does not work as your posted examples are not the queries actually being used by Emby that I can see.

This should never work "query=(1970) Lo Chiamavano Trinita'..." as you get the no results on their website with that also.

Actually @Lukethe issue is with Flat structure (no item folder) querying with file extension.

item imported

Hi @Luke,

I'm testing server version 4.8.0.6 beta and it works like a charm!

I had to remove the move library and re-add it to make it woks, but now it seems ok.

Thank you very much!
