Tags field in metadata section

Recommended Posts

ebr

The tags are not heavily used at the moment.  We just haven't gotten there yet.  So, they won't do much other than have some sort of impact on what items are considered "similar".

I tried adding them to tv shows but fail to see how they work or where they show in MBC or MBT. I have search the forum (old forum search seems to be broken) but havent found an answer.

MBC will also show you similar items via the context menu (* key on remote).

I don't think they are implemented in the Clients or Web Client search yet...

 

I suspect they are for Playlist functionality that will be coming in the future.

Good day,

 

It working here with MBC, first enter a collection you have, then highlight (mouse over it if using a mouse or a selector/pointer a title you want then apply the context  menu by pressing on the "*" as you see:

Good day,

 

The "tags" in metadata at the mb3 server to help for "similar" titles for clients that support that, like MBT:

I do not know if Luke fully apply it, did not test it for some time now.

Ah ic now...but funny that i put my both potter movies under the same Tag (Potter) and when i choose similar, i see all the current movies i added. Does similar also pick up Genres? (Since Luke said its similar)

I did some test and yes it does include Genres tag. Will the Tags field in the future be independent of the Genres Field? Or else its kind of pointless.

Good day,

 

The "Tags" in one of the factors that help if you do customize you title to display "similar" titles in the way you want, to work best, the tags should be in the first list in a titles and a like. Genres one of them and a like.

I figured tags would work a bit like making your own customized boxset without having to acutally use the <set> tag a bit like what XBMC had done. I have a bit of a hard time understanding your explanation. could you give an example? :)
