this is a new metadata provider plugin for Emby, supporting TV Series, Seasons and Episodes as well as Season-Images.
The data is retrieved from http://www.tvmaze.com/
The plugin should operate pretty stable, I've been running the code for a few months now without problems.
But what's the benefit, now?
Well, you got to make your own decision about how useful that additional data could be for you!
Metadata handling in Emby is not a very transparent process. To compare the different metadata retrieved by the installed providers, it's probably best to use the Metadata Viewer Plugin (http://emby.media/co...etadata-viewer/).
After installing, you need to check your metadata settings for Series, Seasons and Episodes. You should choose the priorities based on your experience from comparing metadata results as described in the previous paragraph.
If you're already satisfied with your current metadata retrieval or just don't want to make a significant change at this time, I recommend the following:
- Disable TV Maze for Series and Episodes (Emby already comes with 3 built-in providers for those)
- But enable TV Maze for Seasons (and Season images): The reason: Currently, there's only one provider for Season data and there are many cases where TV Maze has some season descriptions when the other (MovieDb) doesn't
