Hello,
I just switched over from Plex and am currently in the decorating & sorting stage since it basically "just works"™.

 

In plex I used my existing folder structure to have some sort of order when browsing ... essentially they are stored by genre and each folder is a library.

In emby I simply scanned them all into 1 library and let Genre sort them out. Added some neat graphics and it looks real sharp. 

But I realized not all movies have proper metadata.  

How can I sort those out that don't have genre's or even those that are missing ID's altogether. 

The identification process is working pretty good ... but there are some that fell through the cracks, and my collection is a wee bit too big to simply check every single one.

 

Thanks in Advance

Would this Missing Metadata filer help at all ?

That would be awesome ... but it's missing the missing metadata option

You just have to wait for the next release.  As "Missing Metadata" is in the beta version currently.  The only option in 4.2 is "Has Overview" filter.

Your other option it the Reports plugin.  The Genre column is not sortable but you can export to excel and sort by that column.  You also have those Filters above.

@Afaflix, usually the 'Has Overview' is the only filter option you'll need to identify any titles that are missing relevant metadata, ie. Genre's and Missing IDs

 

I suggest trying that filter you have now, it should give you a starting point at least.
