Hi

Im running latest version of the server and I have one video file with a # in the file name.

Emby will not pick this up. I tried to delete the hash from the file name but no difference, Nothing in the logs either.

Can we not have #s in file names?

we need to learn more about what you mean by ignore, like for example, where exactly is it not appearing, and does it show properly in the server's web interface.

For me testing #Horror (2015) the server pulled it in and miss identified it as "A Christmas Horror Story (2015)",  identify can't find movie by proper name and year, but if I enter IMDBid it is found and all metadata is corrected.

 

A windows server if that makes a difference.
