Emby not identifying movies!

emby identify identifying movies

Best Answer Happy2Play , 08 October 2019 - 09:18 PM

Same discussion here about the naming scheme T, T (Y).  Emby uses Folder name instead of file name when items are in there own folder.

Hi!

 

Ok so I had to reinstall emby and rescan my database. On rescan, some of the movies did not identify. On the previous install, I set download images to folder, so now all that displays is the poster, logo, landscape, and fanart. 

 

I did notice, however, that the movies that did not identify all had the same naming convention: "Movie Title, The (Year)".

 

I have no idea why this is happening, especially when other movies with the same naming convention did identify correctly.

 

Can anyone please help me! 

 

Thank you.

What problem are you having?  Can you go over your folder structure and naming scheme.

Ok so my file structure for all my movies is: Movie Title (Year) / Movie Title

 

So for example:

 

F:/ Movies HD / Amazing Spider-Man, The (2012) / The Amazing Spider-Man

Why do you feel that it didn't identify?

How did you setup the library in emby library setup?

All of the metadata is missing (Cast, Overview, Rating etc).

 

Please see attached screenshots of library set up for movies.

Did you try searching moviedb to compare? I realize you're here assuming Emby problem, but look what i get from the Moviedb search engine when I take your exact folder name and punch it into Moviedb search:

Interesting. I tried to search "Amazing Spider-Man 2, The" in the moviedb and it appeared (this did identify in emby).

 

However, even when I changed the order to OMDB as first preference, "Amazing Spider-Man, The" still did not identify...

 

So lost.

 

And all my folder names are as per the preferred naming scheme..

Emby does not handle that naming scheme (folder) very well when querying provider sites.  I would assume because the returned title is not a exact title match to the query.

2019-10-08 18:49:32.010 Info App: MovieDbProvider: Finding id for item: Amazing Spider-Man, The
2019-10-08 18:49:32.011 Info HttpClient: GET https://api.themoviedb.org/3/search/movie?api_key=f6bd687ffa63cd282b6ff2c6877f2669&query=Amazing+Spider-Man%2C+The&language=en
2019-10-08 18:49:32.163 Info HttpClient: GET https://private.omdbapi.com?apikey=fe53f97e&plot=full&r=json&s=Amazing+Spider-Man%2C+The&type=movie

I know if OMDB is before TMDB and you manually identify it will return the item you are looking for (at least in my test).  So the issue resides in the automatic identification with T, T (Y) "Amazing Spider-Man, The".

Almost, and almost really doesn't count.  Your best bet is always to use the exact name, with the year, shown on tmdb.  With this example that would be \The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)\The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014).mkv.  Matching the TMDB naming will give you a near 100% recognition rate for English-language installs.  No insight into Emby in other languages but I would guess it's similar.

Same question, did you try a manual search on their website?

 

https://www.omdbapi.com/

 

It produces no results in my testing.

Regarding titles with a trailing ", the", I can push some of the same improvements to the Omdb plugin that I did for MovieDb.

Thank you!! I believe you have fixed it, all scanned correctly with the same naming convention "Title, The (Year)"

The problem will be the folder naming scheme you are using since the folder name is queried, not the file name.

 

@xgal8

Looks like you have the same/similar naming scheme on Folders as in this topic.
