Emby (Win64) - Identify Feature issues


Recommended Posts


Good Afternoon All.


My installation of Emby has been solid for months but what is weird when a movie fails to be identified I simply choose 'Identify' enter the search and the correct information including picture is found and I then select replace and click ok and it usually updates and changes everything.


But at the moment it goes through the motions but the image/data is still staying as the original information.


I am failing to get it ti successfully update with the correct information it has found.


Any ideas?

STEP 1 - Movie identified, data to be updated.

STEP 2 - Running Identify process and entering search information.

STEP 3 - Correct information found from search.

STEP 4 - Replacing existing data running OK.

STEP 5 - Movie information not updated.

Here's one problem.  You configured a custom metadata folder path but the server is being denied access to delete files from it:

The page was refreshed.


The folder has the same access permissions as the others such as cache and transcoding.


It can successfully search / open the folder.


Thank you for the information I will dig deeper.

Yes I would resolve those file access problems first and then re-evaluate. There's a good chance it will resolve your issue. Thanks.
