Hello

this request is basically for one problem, but for sure it would be helpful in general:

I'd like to see the abilty to check for two genres, e.g.

Animation, Anime

and map them to one genre

Anime

as I don't find another way seperating Anime from Animation.

 

Best regards

Sorry maybe you misunderstand the request?

You can map one Genre to one other genre but not two genres to one genre…?

You mean you want the combinatin of those two genres to get translated into one other genre?  If so, I don't think that will  really be practical.

But, I also don't really understand your goal here:

You want to separate Anime from Animation?  They are already two different genres.

yes exactly.

The problem is that Anime shows also have the genre Animation.

E.g.

Attack on Titan:

Attack on Titan (TV Series 2013- ) — The Movie Database (TMDB) (themoviedb.org)

Attack on Titan (Fernsehserie 2013–2023) - IMDb

進撃の巨人 - TheTVDB.com

 

On Themoviedb and IMDb (omdb) they just have the animation genre, on tvdb they have animation AND anime genres.

So people who look for animation and don't want to get flooded with anime don't like them to see them there.

from my experience people hate or love anime, so this is a special case which somehow should be considered

I understand but that type of combination logic will make the plug-in too complex for what it is trying to accomplish.  Technically, both genres are correct.

Yeah okay

Guess I can also accomplish it with a small script which edits the nfo files.

thank you

i asked a similiar question (& modifier in filters) but the answer from EMBY guys was it would make emby to complex for grandmas

 

so i use Tiny Media Manager for this to create additional genres

example: all movies that are "Horror AND Science Fiction" as SciFi-Horror

more additional genres i have:

 

Action-Comedy

Action-Thriller

Fantasy-Horror (aka Dark Fantasy)

Psycho-Thriller

Rom-Com

SciFi-Horror

SciFi-Thriller

 

would want more but its a lot work to do it manually. Would be nice when Genre Cleaner could do the job ...

So here is my command for doing it manually:

find '/path/to/shows' -name tvshow.nfo -type f -exec grep -l '<genre>Anime</genre>' '{}' \; | xargs -d '\n' grep -l '<genre>Animation</genre>' | xargs -d '\n' sed -i 's/<genre>Animation<\/genre>//g'

 

if it is useful for anybody else...

Best regards
