You can use the Intros Backup/Restore plugin by Cheesey Productions as a solution until this is added to core.

So just to keep you lot in the loop.

Waiting on some final testing before i release this to the catalogue.

Cheers

Restore looks to be fine (on my test system) and the NFO data has been successfully written to my main TV library (33K episodes) - took about 8 mins.  Spot testing looks good.

Nice work - I can now use the marker info in the NFO stored with the media to restore the Intro data into a new test instances, rebuild etc without having a dependency on the media Internal Id, thus no re-detection is now necessary.

Multi-versions work great (ie each NFO is updated).

Brilliant plugin ! 👍

Wonderful work, thanks a lot @Cheesegeezer.

 

Just to confirm, will it always do a full restore from the NFO to the DB or will it only restore the changed or added data automatically when Emby detects any changes to the NFO file?

It doesn’t monitor changes at all, its purely a full backup and full restore utility. 
 

at the time of backup it will find all episode that have intro and credits skip markers from the episode’s chapter table and writes them to json file in a user defined backup folder and/or to the episode’s nfo if it is saved in the media folders.

restore will use json OR nfo restore method. Not both and write the markers back to the chapter table overwriting any existing markers.

Hopefully, the core will follow suit and use the same NFO section to read/write in core functions, making it a 'real-time' backup solution - allowing a full restore at any time as the data is independent from the database. 

Awesome job @Cheesegeezer  👍

@Luke - FYI

tail of the NFO file ......

  </fileinfo>
  <markers>
    <introstart>626303072</introstart>
    <introend>801518812</introend>
    <creditstart>0</creditstart>
  </markers>
</episodedetails>

Thanks Rich!

we are ready for release… but might package this with the TVCreditsSkip Plugin if i can get the damn UI to behave itself. As it makes sense to package it all in a single plugin. Also the database would act as a live backup for intro and credit skip markers and store these in the database that could just then be extracted by usin the chapter Insert task.

i dunno! 
what does the community feel?
