n00b question/s about metadata back and forth between local files vs Emby library

Recommended Posts

hello, @ll; 

as a complete newby to Emby, I am wondering about some smaller aspects of music metadata handling; specifically: 

 

  • are all metadata amendments caused by Emby stored on Emby only? Or will they get written back into the individual files's taggage = sync back down to my actual library?
    • (like : play and skip count/s, genre updates) etc. 
  • will genre information written by Emby's information enrichment be added to prexisting genre information on a track or will it replace pre-existing genres? 

+ (probably floating around here somewhere already, but I haven't been able to spot it) : 

 

  • is there an/y ETA on when Emby might get dynamic playlists with smart filters? (such as "genre contains {x}") and multi-level sorting (to achieve a} by playcount descending with b} skip count ascending etc.) 

Thank you for what feedback you may be able to provide. :) Cheers!

Emby only reads embedded tags, it currently will not write or edit them.  All additional information Emby gets or you edit via the UI will only be written to the database or nfo file depending on your setting.  Userdata (play count, favorites, ect...) are only written to Emby database, but there is the Trakt plugin also.
