But since the topic is a bit different, I guess no one does even read it..
So let me summarize the problem:
I got folders for movies and for TV-shows.
The are structured as follows:
a) movies \\smb-share_whatever\videos\movies\action\Rambo 1\Rambo 1.mkv (or mp4 or avi)
tv-shows \\smb-share_whatever\videos\TV-shows\Friends\Season01\S01E01.mkv (or mp4 or avi)
Every folder does have a Backdrop.jpeg and a folder.jpg, the genre-folders for the movies also do have a folder.jpg.
Since I got an "old" server (Windows 2012 R2), it also does access these files, which are on its RAID-Volume. (~8TB)
Here it works perfectly, the overview shows movies and TV-shows and when you click one of them, you see the genres under movies.
Now for the Rock64Pro-board with Armbian-Buster:
I've mounted the SMB-share under /mnt, I can easily access both, movies AND TV-shows and also read them. (I've even tried via WinSCP to copy them being read from the /mnt).
I've then added separately movies (content-type "movies" and TV-shows (content-type "TV-shows") to emby.
The TV-shows are recognized and can be played easily.
The movies show-up empty as there would be no content or it is not readable or not recognized.
I removed the movies and added them as "mixed content" - same story.
Since I want to retire the Win2k12-Server, I also have a NAS, which offers an SMB-share to my network.
I've also the same files on the NAS, same folders - only different IP.
When I add the movies from my NAS, emby does recognize them BUT:
I) It does not show the folder-structure, only when I select the list-option "folders".
On my windows-server it does it as a standard. Here it shows all movies (~1550) in a bulk-list.
II) It does NOT play the movies. When I click one, the player seems to load and then it says "there are no compatible streams available."
But it does play the TV-shows from the Win2K12-Server... (I've got my emby-premium on both registered, it is a lifetime-key)
So - tons of problems - only because of my effort to save the 125W my server consumes 24/7 ;-)
I'd highly appreciate if you can give me some help.
