On server webpage, when we select a media item,

a critical information is missing, burried at the very last line of the complete page.               

 

The file path!

 

If it would be moved all the way to the very top (see my sim)

we would get in a single and quick glance folder name + file name (w. year)

                                                              just above library name + year, as per scraper.

 

Spotting identification discrepancies would become a hundred time easier.

Anyone else thinks this could be a big plus please hit like this post.

Not sure I like it where you suggest @@jlr19, but perhaps have it below the synopsis and above the Cast & Crew.

 

As it's part of the Media Info section, perhaps the whole lot needs moving up.

As long as the path name is somewhere in the top page, without scrolling down. I'm good.

 

But the top row (above poster) holds added value, as all the page's width is available to display those longer paths.

I like it where it's at :)  Emby is #1 a media playing app for me, not a management tool.  I like the clean look.

I beg to differ, Emby server webpage is both media playing app and media management.

A pure media player would be Emby Theater

Maybe this custom CSS solves your problem: 

.mediaInfoContent div:last-of-type{
    top: 60px;
    position: absolute;
    max-width: none!important;
}

The metadata manager puts it at the top, fyi.

Thanks, I didn't knew that.  One thing is missing from within that screen is the scraped year, to be found much lower. Also there's no poster there, which is often the first thing that jumps to the eye to spot a scrape error.

It also imply we need to be browsing metatata manager pages, instead of the "everyday" page media info.

This is exactly what would make my day, but I would not have a clue how to use a custom CSS

Yeah I like the cleaner look too. Could the path perhaps be a tool-tip when hovering over 'something' like the name or poster maybe. I know we don't like these hidden things but the info is down the bottom for people who wouldn't know about the tool-tip (until they find it).

Except that you can click the poster to open the image editor, so arguably any tooltip should be instructional about that function.

To an average user of the system that is simply not critical information.

 

I agree. This is a terrible suggestion. If I need to see the media path on this page, I just press CTRL-End on my keyboard and voila, there it is.

From the dashboard go to

Settings

Branding

Custom CSS

Then paste that code in the box

Save

 

It worked here

Ah, correct... you'll get right on that then  :P

I must not be an average user then, file path vs library name is top priority to me, if it doesnt match, everything else on the media page is useless

To each his own indeed. This workaround is a huge FAIL for me

The web client is my primary client at this time. It works so much better than anything else provided on Windows 10 currently. This isn't necessary information in enjoying media.

 

I am glad that a reasonable workaround has been provided for you.

The web client is the backend of your media collection, and as such it needs to focus on managing said media as efficiently as can be.

 

Web client also doubles as a very capable media player, but contrary to its media management, Emby frontend has loads of competition, Emby Theater and Emby for Kodi to name a few.

 

To me, having file name and library name next to each other is like keeping all utensils in the same drawer.

I was merely reporting the forks were in the attic and the knives in the basement.

 

For me, bottom line is that to manage Emby server, there's only Emby server.

 

Lets agree to disagree

 

Cheers

all good here, Luke ;)

 

That CSS code was a PERFECT fix for me, I wish I knew more about how that works.

 

I just wish we could do something similar to compare 100 items simultaneously, path and library names side by side.

The million dollar FR...
