Hide thumbnails for unwatched episodes

Recommended Posts

mythofechelon

I was just looking at the episode list of Hannibal season 3 to see how many episodes there were left and saw some major spoilers in the thumbnails which made me think that it would be a good idea if there was an option to hide thumbnails for unwatched episodes

 

Thanks.

I agree. The Kodi player allows this feature already, and is available in the skins settings of certain custom skins (if you don't want to go through the trouble of manually configuring it.

 

 

Try the Cirrus Ex skin in the meantime, and you should see the option to enable this feature under the skin's specific settings section (subsection named "settings" in the Appearance section of Kodi's Settings).

I'm brand new to Emby, but does the feature in Emby Theater (Windows Desktop) under Settings -> Default Skin -> "Enable Anti-Spoiler Features (hide details for episodes beyond the first unwatched)" do what you want/need? It seems like in theory that should be aiming for what you're wanting.

Yes but only in Theater, and only on the season screen. What he's asking for is a universal feature throughout all the apps, and I think it's a nice idea.

Yes I hate the spoilers from episode images/thumbnails too! I'd prefer to only see them after an episode has been marked as Watched (and before that it should act is if there is no image to load and show a default).

 

But since that feature doesn't exist, my nuclear option was to setup Emby not to download episode thumbnails at all.  You can do this by:

 

Server Manager > Library > Metadata > Select "Episodes" from the "Customize for  media type" dropdown > Deselect "Primary" in the "Image Settings" section > Save & Restart

 

Emby will stop downloading episode spoiler images going forward, but they will still exist for your current episodes. If anyone knows a way to clear out the existing ones without doing it manually, please let me know. I've tried deleting the metadata folder but it regenerates.  (I was finally able to accomplish deleting all episode images, but it required writing a custom script to use the API)

Well you are disabling the ability to get episode images, but go to each TV library (Dashbaord-Library) and enable Show Advanced settings and scroll down to Episode image fetchers and disable each provider.

 

Only applies to new media.

2 years and nor any progress in uniforming this, nor any hint in realizing this "nice idea" here and to top it all, anti spoiler feature was completely removed from ET

I think it is a great idea for the future - as a unified setting shared by all apps and not built for just a single app.

Thanks. I'm simply trying to avoid tv episode thumbnails from being generated.

Was just about to make a thread about this, glad I searched first. Yes - I want this! Sometimes there are major spoilers in the thumbnails. I currently just try to avoid looking at them, it works but it's inconvenient.

Is there any progress on this?

Even just putting "next up" for a show on it's homepage in a text list would be a lot better than now.

Now if you go into a show page you see like 6 episodes worth of thumbnails which could spoil far into the future.

just a couple weeks for the 3rd birthday of another useful and easy to implement (just simply let us blur episode thumb and text) feature request  :(
