Identifying MKV Audio

Recommended Posts

scott.freiman

I have ripped some 5.1 audio albums to create MKV files. The files play back correctly. However, I see no way to use Identify to find the album. Even though I have the AudioDB plug-in, only MovieDB, IMDB, etc, are searched. That means that when I am searching for Chicago II (the album by Chicago), it matches to a wresting movie NXT Takeover: Chicago II! Is there a way to tell Emby to search for audio matches and not movie matches? If not, how can I manually update the metadata for audio and not a movie?

Hi, why do you feel that Imdb is searched? What is the content type of the library?

The content type is mixed, although the same thing happened when I created another library with content type music. It is assuming the MKV file is video and looking at IMDB and MovieDB. The question is whether I can make Emby match it to music instead.

just as a throw in, the "correct" extension for audio only matroska files is *.mka, even if internally they are absolut identical

Thanks @@daedalus. Unfortunately, changing the extension to mkay won't allow Emby to play the file.

not atm, mixed content librarys don't have audio providers, see your library settings

 

why audio is not "supported" in mixed content librarys only the devs can answer

It's possible, but it's just not something that has ever been looked at.

would be appreciate :)

Reading the posts, it seems we are a few users which have a music library mixing audio and video files
