Hi,

would it be possible to implement at the top of movies main page the total number of movies on the server, it always nice to know how your collection is growing.

 

Here is a screenshot coming from my Plex Dashboard but I don't wanna use Plex anymore ;)

It will come back. Just not until we have virtual scrolling.

So virtual scrolling like hitting the "K" key in order to skip a bunch of items and get to the "K" content of items? Or something else?

Why did you take the counters out ?

 

When are the counters coming back ?

 

Last night my wife and i were watching TV, we're scrolling thru the TV list, my wife asked me, " how many TV shows do we have now ? ". I said " i have no clue ", hold on.

So i backed out of were we were, into dashboard, down to reports or stats, to find the number " we have 2127 tv shows and 4086 for movies. Then i clicked the home button on the top left, looked at the clock, and it took 6 minutes for the screen to populate, then i clicked on tv shows, watched the round spinning circle for 4 minutes. My wife asked why i did all that when we never has to before ? i said " the geinuses at emby decided they dont want us to see the counter anymore, so we have to go thru all thru nonsense just to know how much is in our library because we have to have the latest version or our roku's and andriods wont be able to use emby any,more. She asked are we gonna find different software like makes things easier on us ?

 

SOO, are the counters coming back   ??????

Counters aren't going anywhere.

 

The web app is going through migration. From paging to virtual scrolling. Part of this means the counter is going to come back. It isn't there presently because paging is going away. Be glad. Paging is a horrible way to browse. It isn't intuitive and always requires an extra keypress. Simply navigate to the bottom and more load is how virtual scrolling works.. move to the bottom again and more keep loading.. more keep loading.. The same way it works pretty much on the Roku. The Roku has counts. If this were across the board the Roku would remove counts too. That isn't happening. The web app is just going through changes. Part of those changes introduce virtual scrolling. When that happens fully the counts are coming back and better than before. They will now be able to adapt to filters and such those counts. 

 

In the meantime the reports section of the web app works to show counts. The apps themselves still show counts. There really is no reason to get offended or angry. @Luke make a post addressing this and said it was coming back and just hasn't gotten there yet. This might be jarring but it is what it is. You cannot change without things like this happening. Remember change is good. Change means the future is coming.

 

Tell your wife we apologize she isn't seeing counts on the web app. They will be coming back. She will be able to know exactly how much media she has at any given moment when browsing the web app. It will just take a little more time. We are people just like she is. We can't just snap our fingers and say "Genie! I wish we had counts back!". We don't know where the cave is that has the magical mythical Genie lamp. Do you? Jafar would be the Genie possibly and we know how awful he is. Maybe it is better it stays lost for another ten thousand years.

Change is fine until you eliminate useful features.

 

The genie never should've taken the counters away in the first place.

Hi, I've removed your postings related to item counts from this thread:

https://emby.media/c...rom-all-devices

 

Since it is not related to that discussion at all. Since you already have a topic here, we will use this to discuss it with you. Thanks.

Virtual "paging" - meaning you just keep scrolling down and items keep filling in as opposed to moving from page to page with buttons.

You can do that in Theater. You can type the first three letters.

Would still be nice to know the connection between virtual scrolling and movie count.
