Hell to all my name is Matt. I am new to forums so I apologize if I am not posting correctly or in the right location, any help would be appreciated.

 

So I have not used Emby in a couple of years, but when I did use Emby I remember that there was an option to hide additional files from being displayed in the folder that you added to Emby. After adding my folder to Emby yesterday I now have a bunch of nfo, bif, jpg files that are being displayed. The nfo option is unchecked in settings. So how can I hide these additional files from being seen?

I have included a screenshot to show what it is that I am referring to.

The icons that have little black squares with blue triangles in the lower right corners (movies) those I want to be seen and displayed in my folder,

ALL of those other icons (nfo, bif, jpg) I want to have hidden. Where do I go and how do I accomplish this task?

 

Thanks in advanced.

Are you referring to "Save metadata and images as hidden files" (Dashboard-Library-Advanced)?  But the setting does nothing for existing metadata.

Save metadata and images as hidden files
Changing this will apply to new metadata saved going forward. Existing metadata files will be updated the next time they are saved by Emby Server.

Or are you not wanting metadata and bif files saved with media?  You mentioned you don't have the NFO option enabled, you would need to verify this per library.  Same with Thumbnail Images (bifs).

Thanks (Happy2Play) I found the option you are referring to "Save metadata and images as hidden files".

I unchecked that option. Underneath that option it says: "Changing this will apply to new metadata saved going forward.

Existing metadata files will be updated the next time they are saved by Emby Server."

So how often does Emby Server update my metadata files? 

Do I need to restart my Emby Server manually for these changes to take effect, or does Emby Server update this 

information periodically and I just have to wait?

You unchecked it?

 

Don't you want it enabled?

Only when there's a reason to, such as manually refreshing, using the metadata editor, etc.
