Thanks for the support, @Rodiefs! It's helpful if you can also "Like" the first post in this thread, as that's one of the main ways the Devs track interest/demand for feature requests. :)

If this ever comes to fruition, I hope someone starts up a extrasdb so that we can then start bothering Emby about adding that to automate the metadata for a feature they just added.

That (an Extras Online DB) would certainly be cool (for both movie and tv extras)!

first let the devs introduce extras for tv shows.. hehe.. because I don't think that gonna happen anytime soon , sadly.

 

currently they are just advicing to store the extras in season 00 / specials folder... heh.. i mean, how can both the things be the same? A special is a Special episode whereas an extra (clip/interview/featurette/BTS) is, well,... an extra, and need to be showcased just like they are showcased for movies.... below the cast.

I'd love to see this. I'm currently working my way through adding our Doctor Who DVDs to emby, and if you've ever done that you'll know that the classic season often has more specials every season than it has episodes (I've just done City of Death, for example, and that has 4 episodes but 10 extras).

 

Right now my workaround is to create a folder for the story (e.g. "105 City of Death"), put the episodes in there correctly named, and then the specials as "Doctor Who S00E1050 Paris in the Springtime", "Doctor Who S00E1051 Paris, W12"... it puts the specials at the beginning of the series. It's not great, but it (sort of) works.
