I'm trying to create a collection of 4k movies and it would be really handy if there was a filter for 4k in the video types section. A filter for audio types would also be nice, for example TrueHD, Atmos etc. 

 

If we could use these in some sort of smart collection in the future that would be great too.

Hi ebr, 

 

This is the section I mean:

 

5a2851295b3bb_ScreenShot20171207at71956a

 

I have a large collection of movies, and there is currently no way to identify 4k content that I'm aware of.

Ah, yes, that probably should be there.

 

FYI - CoverArt can now apply a different treatment to your 4K items if you wish.

I have activated the Cover Art plugin (v4.0.58.0) and the movies are just showing a MKV banner at the top, is there something else I need to configure?

If you want to see your covers based on definition instead of type, you need to check the option labeled as such in the options for that profile.

 

Thanks.

+1 fo this. As 4K files become more prevalent it would be very useful to have without having to go looking for it in a roundabout way.

Having some of both UHD and FHD devices it would be nice to filter out the 4K on devices which can't Direct Play it.  CA is nice, but I have way too much 4K now.

 

Thanks

Hi, yes we'll add this filter in a future update. Thanks.

 

 

Is it the future yet  ;)

We're getting the data added to our objects and api. You'll gradually start to see 4k filters in Emby apps. Thanks.

Marty was wrong! The future has changed!!!

 

@@Luke, just hope the implications of changing time and space aren't too bad :P

 

Congrats for the amazing work, as always!

I've just tested this out as it's been added to the latest version, clicking the 4k box when I'm in movies shows up nothing even through I have quite a few 4k movies.

 

Do these filters get the information from the actual dimensions of the movies, or is it from the filenames? The only filter that seems to work for me is the Bluray one, it finds one movie that has bluray in the folder name.

No it does not appear to be working correctly

 

i have a 4k only library with 65 4k movies

 

picking the 4k filter drops the movie count to 13

 

which is actually the same a if i pick "hd"

 

checking the movies that do appear they vary in image size e.g. 3840x2160 to 3840x1600

 

and thats the same range as the ones that get filtered out

 

so the filters do have issues

You need to refresh metadata on existing titles that were in your library prior to the introduction of this.
