Editing genre for movies and tv - how?

Long time Emby user and I can't say enough about how much I love it. I use it daily!  I've recently tried sorting my movies by genre, whenever I'm wanting to watch a horror movie (for example).  This does work but I see a lot of movies "mis-categorized".  I even have one genre labeled as "sci-fi" and another as "science-fiction".  Obviously I believe these two could be merged but from what I can tell, I need to open each movie via the metadata manager and make the change.  Here's the problem. I currently have over 1200 movies so this would take a really long time. I've searched a bit and didn't see how to do it in bulk.


Is there a simpler, faster, easier way to manage these genres? How do you guys do it?


Thanks for any ideas!

Hi, yes that is the way to edit genres. You may also be interested in checking out the genre cleaner plugin in the plugin catalog, it can help automate some normalization.
