Server: Parental Control, block content WITHOUT tag or Autotag new additions feature


Recommended Posts


I love Emby and this plugin and I'm using it heavily.


In my current setup I have the server running in my living room and kodi running on the same machine with a main user, in my bedroom I'm running openelec with this same main user connected and that is just fine and working perfectly. 

However for the setup in my kids room I want to use another account with some parental restrictions on it. I started off by setting up an account with some ratings restrictions. That get me part of the way but it always ends up giving me either more or less than I would like to be availiable. The only option I see is to set a rating that give more than I would like and block the rest by adding tags to them and blocking them under the parental setting.


Now for my problem.


In my setup I have new releases automatically downloading and populated in Emby, that means that any new movie that falls under the set rating but is one that I would like to block will be availiable to my kid until I go to set the tag on it to get it blocked.


I would like to have a feature that works the opposite way of this block tags feature. For me it would be much better with a function that lets me block all movies that NOT have a specifc tag, an alternative would be that I have the option to automatically add one or more tags to all new movies, that Emby pick up, that I later on can remove if I want to.


Thank you for your great work btw, you guys (and gals?) are awesome!

Logically, not everything will have proper metadata for rating when scraping. You need to give the admin a chance to change the rating before apps can display content for user restriction. This would prevent inappropriate content from appearing in the first place. At least give this option - do not display unless it has x tag. :)
