Grouping results in duplicates

linux group version

Best Answer reederda , 26 July 2018 - 06:21 PM

Upgrading to the latest release didn't change anything, however I did find the issue:

 

Interesting. I'm running the latest version (3.4.1.0).

 

Could it possibly be something with the way the media is organized/named? I've attached a snippet with my filepaths.

This was an issue after all. In order for Emby to see them as different versions, the files must have the EXACT same name as the folder, before the hyphen. For example, for this to work properly the folder needs to be named "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope", and then the files need to be named "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope - <version>".

Hi there, please try again with the next release of emby server, thanks.

Thanks @Luke - did you also take care about the version grouping in e.g. "latest movies" or is this limited to the display of version movies in collections?

At least the topic of this post - movies are still shown with each version when selecting a collection/group:

Hi @Luke, I just did a test for the other issue in this thread here, this is resolved. It is about movie versions had been shown separately in the latest movies section of the start portal - thanks!

attachicon.gifcollections-nondistinct-movies.JPG

fixed in .71 - but was it intentional, that the count of the versions was removed?

Do you think it is necessary? We are extremely inconsistent about this, no other app is showing that count.

Good question ;-) ... you are right, we were not consistant - some views had it, some did not.

From a user perspective, I think they are not needed, as it doesn't matter if there is multiple versions or not. From admin perspective I found it useful to see that there are multiple versions existing for a movie and how many. I could live without them, we probably have other more important things to care about...

thanks, I agree. It always throws me for a loop where i have to remind myself what the count means.

I am currently getting this issue, is there any way to fix this without the files having the exact same name as the folder it is in? I cannot rename the files for various reasons.

Hi there, can you please go over an example? Thanks.

Hi there, can you please go over an example? Thanks.

 

I am trying to convert media so that I have two versions - a high bitrate original and a low bitrate one for mobile. I am converting to the "Original media folder, next to original files".

 

I end up with a folder structure that looks like this:
 

/Movies

    /xxxx

        /yyyy

            /zzzz.mkv

            /zzzz - mobile.mp4

 

Instead of having a single item with two versions, I instead end up with two items in a subfolder. Grouping the items manually does not fix this and just makes it so both items have the two versions.

 

5d7137a6c777f_Annotation20190906022605.p

 

5d7136bab655a_Annotation20190906022402.p

 

 

Is there any way to force them into a single item or remove the duplicate?

 

Thanks for your help.

@KingCommandoJimmoTheIII

 

In order to group they need to follow our multi-version naming:

https://github.com/M...-version-movies

 

When you use the convert feature, the new file will be named this way, but in some cases you may also have to rename your original file. The server currently does not rename your original file for you. Please let us know if this helps. Thanks.

So does this mean there is no way to have them group when they are not following the naming convention? In that case, I might upgrade my server hardware so that it can handle live transcoding instead. Thanks for helping out.

There is a manual grouping feature you can use using the multi select tool with the checkboxes in the upper left.

Yes, I did try that but it didn't work, instead I just end up with two items both with two versions as shown in the original post. An answer above said that the files need to follow the naming convention for it to work.

What I was wondering is: Is there was a way to do this without the files following the naming convention?
