Additional naming convention for Anime/Foreign shows

You could use JMM(Japanese Media Manager) to rename anime to a structure Emby can work with.

Or you could look at the Anime plugin.

Hi.

 

What I'm using emby is for mostly hollywoods movies, some american TV shows, and many Japan Animes, Korean TV shows.

 

The problem is, the TV contents other than USA's are not recognized good enough by current TV episode naming conventions (https://github.com/M.../wiki/TV-naming) even though metadata system works very well with correct season/episode numbers.

 

Here's the example:

- An.American.Show.S01E04.PROPER.720p.HDTV.x265.AnonymousRelease.mkv -> Season 1, Episode 4 (OK)

- [AnonymousRelease] A Japanese Anime - 05 RAW (TX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4 -> Season 1280, Episode 720 (Wrong)

- A.Korean.Show.E37.160109.HDTV.H264.720p-AnonymousRelease.mp4 -> Season 1601, Episode 09 (Wrong)

 

Honestly it is fun sometimes to fix them manually, but it would be better if it can be done by itself.

 

Is there any method to control naming convention?

If not, is there anyone provide the way to change it or add various contents type other than just "TV"?

 

- Current Emby server version in using: 3.0.5849.22633

Anime has weird ways of naming lots of things.

 

Having a few TB of those, I learned to systematically rename all anime files with "{anime title} - S{season}E{episode} - {episode name, if I have it}"

 

The Anime plugin almost always use thetvdb.com to populate metadata (at least on my setup) which means that weird naming convetion à-la Gintama (Gintama, Gintama', Gintama' 2012, etc...) becomes Gintama S01, Gintama S02, etc... 

Also, most Anime Movies that are part of a series becomes Specials for that series. (Said Gintama movies are in S00 seasons..)

 

I couldn't get the Anime plugin to pull info from anidb.net

 

Note that japanese voice actors name management seems broken, as some Anime reports different romanization for their names (as seen here) some are OK, some aren't

Anime needs a lot of work... I wish I knew C# so I could jump in and help. I would really love to get it to behave correctly. :(

Given that the dev of the Anime plugin seems to be MIA, I have made an attempt at it as well, but sadly I just lack the time and skills

A program I use for renaming my TV series files is Sonarr.

 

While its primary purpose isnt that I just use that feature for my anime shows - works a treat.

I just think anime should have it's own category, because it needs a different logic than just season episode. If you use absolute numbering, you get really weird behaviors, especially when a show is split in season but in japanese naming, they are actually individual shows. You can't get trakt to work with it either. I hope something can be done about it. I don't use plex but I hear their anime support is far superior.. I hope some real thought will be put into this soon, because it is not an easy or pleasant experience with all the weird bugs.

I'm agreeing with you on the category thing. But sadly that's not a thing I expect to happen any time soon

 

As it is now, I'm running 2 Emby servers, one specifically for anime, and the other for everything else. Having it all together only creates a lot of stress because metadata is fetched from both Anidb and TheTVDB

Got to agree with you all guys... we need more love for anime scrappers and really would love to see a integrated scrapper rather than a plugin for emby, all i`m missing from plex/kodi

Plugin is the best way to serve everyone's needs. A lot of people don't need the baggage of an Anime scrapper. Making it modular allows people to install what they need.

That is fine to make it modular, but to what extend can you modify the server behavior with a plugin? Is it possible for a plugin to create an additional media type and control how the content is being imported in the server, etc? Is this possible?

I think he meant just plain book...

 

The Book and Game objects exist in server. The bookshelf and GameBrowser plugins are just adding 'instructions' for how to identify those objects and where to get metadata from.
