Yes that's why it's important to make sure to attach complete log files rather than snippets. Thanks.

@MikePlanet I agree, just what I needed.  Going to try it out, just curious, will it ever be available for official releases?  Going to install beta to check it out.

 

Also, i'm new to Emby, but it seems there are numerous betas.  Do you know if your latest plugin (4.2.0.17) works with the latest Emby beta server?

So I'm answering my own question, the latest AutoCollections is working with the most current beta.

 

@Luke, Do you think Emby can ever integrate this natively?  It works well, the only issue I see is that it if i have  4K and 1080p version of a file, it groups those with together even though I have created 2 separate libraries in Emby: 4K and Movies (1080p/720p).  So in my 4k library all versions show up as options (1080p) and in my Movies Llibrary, all versions (including 4k) show up as options.

 

Not complaining, this cleaned up my library 10 fold

 

 

Thanks for your work @MikePlanet

If there's enough demand for it, sure.

... that's how it is supposed to work - it should group all movie versions together to one - let the user select resolution via playbackoptions. You might use a filter to find the ones, that are e.g. 4K?

@MikePlanet  Thanks for your help.  I forgot to ask again, you urge not to use the plugin with a stable release.  Your original post was a year ago.  Is it safe to use with stable releases now?

I am using it since that time and never had issues. However, because the plugin does write updates to the db I prefer to have a warning in place - so it is up to the user to decide to use it or not. I would recommend to take a backup of your db - so in case you're unhappy you can revert to the state before.

I tried it with a small database (like 50 movies) with 4.2.1.0 (stable), i worked like a charm ! 

I'm gonna build my full database now and make a backup (just in case) and test it :)

Thanks for that very useful plugin !

Really?
Do you really think that there ate not enough demand for a feature that should come by default since the early versions just like plex does.
There are a lot of us who pay for your software and don’t want to be dependent of 1 or 2 votes to see a good feature implemented.
Don’t you think is a good idea?
If so , why don’t you just implement it?
