Moved from PLEX to Emby, but...metadata not working properly?

Hello there,


 


New Emby Premiere member here.


 


I just moved from PLEX since there is some serious trouble with their Samsung Tizen App that has persisted through more than 6 months with subtitles out of sync.


 


So I downloaded the windows client and has added all my media. However, where PLEX seem to load metadata flawlessly for almost ALL my files, Emby doesn't. I've been sitting for a couple of hours to manually update metadata for many files, but I'm about to give up. It takes way too long and besides this should work properly and automatically insert the correct metadata.


 


Here is an example:


 


I have a folder called: Blade.II.2002.1080p.Bluray.x264 and within this folder is a file called hdc-blade2-1080.mkv


 


The Emby server won't insert the correct metadata for this file. Any suggestion to why this fails?

So if I understand this correctly even though the folder is correct, it doesn't load metadata properly if the filename doesn't start with the media name?

The problem with that is that a lot of people have one folder that has a lot of movies in it. I use media center master to rename all of mine. How big is your collection?

I don't believe your folder names do match our conventions.  If they did, then, if only one video file was inside the folder it wouldn't matter what it was named (could be video.mkv).

I'd actually like to see the log from this blade ii example, but it's not in the log you posted. do you have that one? thanks.

Well it looks like that log is from when you fixed it manually, and that succeeded. What i was hoping to see was the activity from when it was first initially imported.

I think i may be out of luck to find a log for it. I have a suspicion that the second log is only logging when I manually tried to update the metadata.

We just crossed each other there. Yes, I know what you mean. I'll try to see if there is anything in the log from one of the other titles with same problem.

Another example:

 

K:\Movies\The.Wrestler.1080p.BluRay.x264\refined-wrestler-blu1080p.mkv

In the above example, do you have two layers of folders for the one movie?

 

Note the image path:

K:\Movies\The.Wrestler.1080p.BluRay.x264-REFiNED\refined-wrestler-blu1080p\poster.jpg

What is the full path to the video file?

K:\Movies\The.Wrestler.1080p.BluRay.x264-REFiNED\refined-wrestler-blu1080p

 

So you are saying yes there is a folder inside a folder then the video? "The.Wrestler.1080p.BluRay.x264-REFiNED\refined-wrestler-blu1080p\refined-wrestler-blu1080p.mkv"

Ah yes, I can see now that there is another folder.

 

Is PLEX using some other smart technique since they always find the metadata on such examples?
