When I read Lukes comment I thought he meant the file timestamps (date modified etc), not the actual video timestamps.

I may be wrong, it has happened before  ;)

 

However this may still not apply to you if your file date modified hasn't changed...

BUMP

 

@Luke - please consider this request. I'm really getting annoyed with the number of times Emby decides to delete my chapter images because it does a scan when content is offline. It takes me many days to get back to normal. 

 

Having chapter images stored with content would mean only having to extract them once instead of multiple times. It also allows us to re-organise content without having to endure another chapter image extraction. And it also allows us to replace any "bad" images (I often get black images because chapters exist at a fade out/fade in point).

BUMP again.

 

Lost all of my chapter images yet again - due to a scan running when my NAS was unavailable (samba seemed to have died).

 

In fact all of my library images were not showing - I had to perform a rescan with "Extract chapter images during the library scan" turned off to prevent the scan from taking a few days to complete. Now, I'll need to run the chapter image extraction task in stages to get all the chapter images back again (this is about the fourth time I've had to do this).

 

It would be really helpful if the scan just ignored libraries on inaccessible servers.

This happens (metadata is deleted) when a scan runs and the path is not available, no matter where the metadata folder is

Yes - it's also on my NAS, mainly because I use Metabrowser and I want both Metabrowser and Emby to look at the same People folder.

I would like to see chapter images stored with the media as well

 

Storing them in the base emby/metadata/library folder is problematic for people running emby in a docker container. Specifically, a typical unraid setup is to have the application data stored on an SSD, and media files stored on storage drives. I believe with the current way chapter images work, all of that gets stored on the SSD which takes up valuable space. Makes much more sense to store images alongside the media

 

I guess a workaround is to pass in a new share and set it as the metadata path, but that doesnt seem ideal as an additional share would need to be created

Yes I think it's a good idea for the future.

bump - again.

Can we please get chapter images store alongside the video files which has at least two benefits:
  • Never having to rebuild chapter images again.
  • The option to manually replace black thumbnails that have been extracted on scene changes.

Also please note, if you enable thumbnail images there is an option to store in media folders. Thumbnail images can be used for both purposes.

Is that a recent feature? I don't remember seeing that one at all. I'll check it out tonight,

So, I found the option and enabled it for one library. The thumbnails are great for ET if you're using a mouse, or when using the WebUI - but as I use ET with a remote 99.9% of the time I'll never actual see the images on the scrubber bar.

 

I thought perhaps they'd appear in the Apple TV app, but no - not there either. So, not any use to me at all. 

 

And I can't see how they're being used for chapter images - it looks like they're still being extracted separately and stored on the server elsewhere.

No. I don't think so - IF you choose thumbnails then you can select to store those with the videos, but if all you want is chapters, then no, you can't store them with the videos - the option disappears when selecting chapter markers.
