Quick, ?, I read the collection wiki, but which attribute or metadata in the the folder triggers emby to identify the contents as a '"collection" when initially scanned.

 

Thx

Emby recognizes collections:

 

- manually created by user/admin... 'Add to Collection' in '...' menu..

- added by the 'Auto Box Sets' plug-in based on 'TheMovieDB Collection' ID in metadata.

 

Collection data is stored in:

 

x:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Emby-Server\data\collections

There isn't a folder attribute. You can build collections using the emby web interface.

Emby no longer honors the collection.xml in your nested folder structured collections (legacy collections).

Any chance for a custom location (directory/path) for collection images?

I would also like to see this.

 

Also to take the folder.jpg file from the root folder of the collection for the collection image. Like for the poster.jpg

|Bad Boys Collection
-|folder.jpg
-|Bad Boyz I
--|Bad Boyz I.mkv
-|Bad Boyz II
--|Bad Boyz II.mkv

Or at least just one main directory with the images in one sub-folder by collection where Emby can copy the saved artwork to his database when it generate the collections, and can do a new sub-directory for any new collection in the same directory. Same principle of one folder by movie, and, to not loose the naming convention and keep the movies folder structure
