Emby Server / Emby Theater - Option to Download (and Display) Duration/Length Metadata for Media Stubs


Recommended Posts

It would be helpful if Media Stubs that have online metadata would automatically download (or there be an option to make set it as automatic) additional metadata that normally would be derived from the video file, particularly Duration / Length / Runtime of the video (and then of course actually display that metadata in Emby Theater). I realize that the online metadata may not always exactly match the true duration (eg, a special edition DVD with extra scenes not in the official theatrical length), but anything would be more useful than nothing here. If I'm trying to decide on something to watch it is unfortunate to have to go dig up the physical DVD/Blu-ray (or switch to the online service provider, if is something I have on Vudu, iTunes, etc.) in order to find out how long it is (particularly since movies can vary in length from ~1.5 hours to 2.5+ hours).

 

Thanks!

Was reminded again last night of how useful this would be to me. I had window of time in which to watch something, but because a lot of my movies are in the form of Media Stubs it was hard to narrow things down (both because I couldn't see what the runtime was for these items, and I couldn't sort them based on runtime in a meaningful way since all the media stubs would just sort at the beginning because they have no runtime).

Giving this a bump as well. Would love to have runtime populated for my media stub items.
