Is there anyway to automatically deal with duplicate movies?


Plex automatically "merges" all the duplicate movies into one and if you click that movie you get the option to play any of the 10 "duplicates" it found rather then presenting 10 duplicate movies directly in the library. This cleans things up a lot and is a very nice feature.


Is there anyway to get something equal in emby? Emby is superior in every single way expect the duplicate problem.


Thanks in advance!

You most likely have a file naming issue. They have to named a certain way for Emby to recognize the, as you wanting to display them as a group.

From a forum perspective, I would delete from your post issues due to rss downloaders. It may be a common practice in some circles, still not looked upon favorably.

I guess you could try this.
