TV Episode Playback vs Movie Playback


GloverEggs

Recommended Posts

I'm just trying to figure out if I have something set incorrectly or is Emby really has different playback screens for TV shows vs movies.

 

When you get to a TV show episode playback screen, it shows the audio and video details and then has a drop down list of the available subtitles.

When you get to a movie playback screen, the same information is not shown.

The movie does have the details embedded.  Using Tiny Media Manager, I get this information:

So, I'm wondering what I need to do or change with my Emby settings to get the movie playback screen to show the same information as the TV episodes.  Just as an FYI, I have also added an external subtitle file (.srt) file for this movie.  So I would hope that some kind of subtitle information would be shown.

 

Any help would be appreciated.  I am still setting items up and have only done about 15% of our movies.  I want to make sure that I copy everything the way Emby likes it.

Yeah, I've scanned and rescanned.  I looked up the nfo on the movie and the data is there.

 

Even more confusing is that I did find a couple of movies that DID show the information like the tv shows.  That leads me to believe that something is messed up with my movies that aren't showing the options/data.

It was in my first post.  None of the video and audio information is showing.

At the very bottom it shows:

Media Info
Containermkv
PathD:\Movies\DC\Aquaman (2018)\Aquaman (2018).mkv
 

 

nfo file says:

Emby does not use the nfo metadata info (fileinfo).  So I would assume Emby is having a issue probing this file since there is no media info in the UI.  And if you do a Refresh All on the item?  If media info still does not show, you will need to post a server log for that refresh action.

Is it just this one file? is there a possibility of the file being corrupt?

Always a possibility.  I will try to re-rip tonight or tomorrow and see what happens.  I searched through the debug log to see if any other movies were throwing errors and that was the only one I found (of course), but I have many that aren't showing information (audio, video, subtitles).  I guess I'll try re-ripping those too.

You can test by trying to refresh any item with the same issue and check the log.

The log only ever showed an error on Aquaman, but I found about 10% of the movies I had done would not show the information.  I have redone about half of them and now have them showing audio, video, and subtitle information.  What is weird is some of these I have had to re-rip more than once or try a different program.  But the good news is I now know what to look for when I load a movie and if it doesn't show up right, I'll re-rip it immediately.

 

Thank you for the help.  I would have been pulling my hair out trying to track down the cause otherwise.
