Cannot Make TV Series Collection & Unpopulated Cast

Hi, I have a folder called "Scooby-Doo Collection" within my TV series folder. Inside I have multiple folders named correctly from the series, for example:

 

Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!,

What's New Scooby-Doo

etc...

 

Inside each of these folders I have the episodes named correctly, for example:

 

S01E01 What A Night for a Knight

S01E02 A Clue for Scooby Doo

etc...

My Problem is that Emby is not recognising or fetching metadata for these series. The only way I can fetch metadata is by putting the series into the root folder and then fetching the metadata, after that I put the folder back into the "Scooby-Doo Collection" folder. One problem I have discovered with that is when viewing actors/cast, it comes up unpopulated for every series?.

 

Am I doing something wrong or can't you make a collection within a TV folder?.

I would appreciate any help.

See the second example under the Complex Structure area: https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/TV%20naming

 

Hi, Under Library in the web browser I have 3 locations:

 

Film Archive (Movies - Content selected)

Music (Music - Content selected)

TV & Video Archive (TV - Content selected)

 

Do I need to add another location? ie "Scooby Doo Collection"?

The link you sent says "Use the metadata manager to change the content type of the sub-folder to TV." , I can't  see where within the metadata manager to change the content type?. Please could you tell me where I can locate it.

 

Thanks, Sam

I still have no clue what to add. Can't the coders just fix this thing.... You have bought up the issue a while ago, as have I now....

All depends on how long you want to wait.

 

All you have to do is use my example and set the path to your Scooby-Doo Collection.

 

The issues is this is legacy/nested folder collection that Emby has moved away from.  If it were a flat folder structure you could create the collection in Emby.

I'll have a look, I'm not too clever with these things but I'll have a go... :wacko:

Example, just replace my path with yours.

  <ContentTypes>
    <NameValuePair>
      <Name>E:\1 TV\Scooby-Doo Collection</Name>
      <Value>tvshows</Value>
    </NameValuePair>
  </ContentTypes>

  </ContentTypes>

 

Do I also need to add the path inside emby web-server? & Does this look right to you:

 

<ContentTypes>

    <NameValuePair>

      <Name>\\BIGBLUE\Server Folder_13\Film & Video\-=TV & Video Archive=-\Scooby-Doo! Collection

      <Value>tvshows</Value>

    </NameValuePair>

  </ContentTypes>

 

Thanks for your help by the way!, much appreciated :)

Just need to add the closing tag </Name> that got dropped some how.  Then I would restart your server and perform a library scan so that path gets recognized properly.  You may need to delete the series or movie nfo from there if any were created in that path.

Where should I add it in the .xml file?, at the start or end?

You will replace the </ContentType> tag (near the bottom) with that or you will added everything in between the tags as a new pair.

The tag in original .xml reads as follows: <ContentTypes />

 

Do I add it under that or change the <ContentTypes /> to <ContentTypes> ?

You are replacing that tag with what you have above.

 

Ok done. I restarted the server and its come up with the Emby setup wizard!. What should I do?
