Local Trailers Collection - Can't see media - Library View of MBS or Theater

Hi All


Have had a hunt on here for anyone else having this issue, with no luck so here goes.


I have an upcoming trailers collection of locally downloaded trailers,(not collected by the any MB plugins, only using Metabrowser to collect). My issue is that this collection is no longer even visible in MBC and while the collection is visible through the MBS web client, MB theater or the android client, the individual items are not visible/playable, which makes me suspect the server is not recognising the media files, perhaps due to them only being up to 150Mb.... only a guess tho. I used to be able to see the collection and play via MBC, although I must confess I'm not sure when this changed.


Hopefully some pics will help ...


Server Library Config



Web Client Collection view




Clicking on a trailer show this.. with no playable file



The MB Theater Views of the same






MBC EHS Screen




Web Client home screen for sort order comparison, as you can see the Upcoming trailers collection is not even visible between Movies and TV Shows where its sort order should show.




With the recent improvements to audio/subtitles playback in MBT, I'm really keen to start using this as my primary media client on my HTPC's but as we often 'surf' through upcoming trailers,
this is proving annoying at present, having to open MBC just to do this. 


Have tried server restarts and rebuilding the db cache, but neither have made a difference


I'm just wondering if I've missed a minimum file size setting, or whether something changed on the server side, that no longer allows this type of collection to work??


More Details

Server Version 3.0.5171.19958

MB Classic -,

MBC Themes tested - Chocolate and Subdued


Look forward to any suggestions or confirmation of this being an issue.

Is this what you are after ?

ok, this is actually somewhat by design. if the name ends in -trailer we ignore it because that's how local trailers are supposed to be named.

Hmmm ok... not the answer i was hoping for but i can see that kinda makes sense, I'm guessing this is done to avoid double ups / playback confusion in normal movie collections ....


Would it be possible that this 'ignoring' can be disabled for collections with type "Trailer"..

I'll have to see if Metabrowser will let me split naming conventions for the different trailers downloaded (i.e with newly added movies vs upcoming)


EDIT: - It does, i'll try stripping out the '-trailer' on the end from all of my files and see how we go


Thanks for investigating
