I don't know if this is correct place to ask for this or whether the trailers plug-in would be the correct place.

 

When you are on a movie page, you get the More Like This section which includes suggestions among your movies as well as trailers.

 

I like having the trailers in there, but for movies that are not on Emby.

 

Would it be possible to have an option to Include Trailers Only when you do NOT have the movie in Emby?  Or show the movie link instead of the trailer?

 

It's difficult for someone like my wife who doesn't know all of the movies we own and when she sees a suggestion, she assumes we don't have it if there is a trailer.  So the only way is to go into the trailer page, click on an actor and then look at all of the movies that feature that actor.

 

I hope this is clear.

Thanks.

Hi there, have you explored the library display settings in the emby server dashboard?

I don't think we have what he's asking for here but it sounds like a good idea.

We do actually already filter them out, but they need identical external id's in order for this to happen.

Okay, so from the standpoint of this feature request, this is already implemented - but it depends on data that probably is not always available.

 

GothesterC - can you find one of these that is showing up in this list, edit its information and add the Tmdb ID for it to match the movie in your library and then see if it disappears from the suggestions?

Yes, I have the Enable external content in suggestions box checked which is what I want.

 

OK.  I am in my movie screen for 48 Hrs using the web interface on Firefox with the latest Emby server on Win 10.

 

I have a list of suggestions: most are from movies I have but one shows up as a Trailer.  This is for the movie Scarface which I have.

 

Checking the Trailer detail screen I get a choice of IDs:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086250/

https://www.themovie...ie/111-scarface

https://trakt.tv/movies/scarface-1983

 

I then go to my movie page for Scarface and check the IDs.  They refer to the same URLS:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086250/

https://www.themovie...ie/111-scarface

https://trakt.tv/movies/scarface-1983

 

So the IDs match, but I still get the trailer in the suggestions, not the actual movie. 

I also checked the Edit Metadata screens and the external IDs already match up between the trailer and the movie.

 

On the trailer page there are two buttons: Play and Trailer.  Trailer plays the internet trailer from Youtube.  The Play button thinks a while and comes back with: Playback Error.  No compatible streams are currently available...

On the movie page, there are the same two buttons:  Play plays the movie just fine and Trailer plays the Youtube trailer.

 

Could there be a synchronization issue here?  It seems that the trailer doesn't know of the existence of the movie.

 

Thanks.

I'm not seeing this myself. I would suggest trying again with the next release of Emby Server as there are changes in this area. Thanks.
