Hi,

 

Metadata needs to be saved for extras, in order to be able to keep names and screengrabs when metadata is refreshed.

Try using the metadata editor and clicking save.

Try using the metadata editor and clicking save.

 

Will this export a .nfo file of the same name with the metadata in there? Long ago (years), I tried this, and it didn't, so I've been doing it manually.

 

If so, thanks, myself from years ago would be happy to hear. And if not, well, there's this feature request I'd like to make...  ;)

Not only does using the metadata editor not create a file at the mkv file location, but it will not read a nfo file for extras if there is already one there.

 

I can't figure out what I am doing wrong.

I haven't seen a nfo for extras and using the editor on a extra and hitting save does not create one (stable and beta).  Placing on in the extras folder has no affect either.

Ok, support for that is something we can look at in a future update. Thanks.

Thank you!  At least I know I'm not going crazy.

 

Any guidance on where the Emby extra metadata (when you edit in Emby) is being saved?

Probably just in the Emby database, would be my guess.

Yes if there is no nfo the information only resides in the database.
