Empty all-en.json in \Cache\tmdb-movies\id unrecoverable


Recommended Posts


Version 3.0.5306.42925


I had a couple of films that refused to fetch tmdb data.

even went to the trouble of deleting them using the dashboard ui, and re-adding.


They would identify (using manual option not automatic) , but would not fetch tmdb overview etc...


i notices all-en.json was blank, unlike in the other ids (in \cache\tmdb-movies\id).


by deleting the id folder (and the contained blank .json), a refresh on the objects would then work.


dont know if its related.... but the two films that failed to id also showed ffprobe errors ( and continue to show this error)

even though ffrobe had no trouble being manually run on the files.

the ffprobe error is still apparent on a refresh of the objects.


wonder if the cache from the primary id provider is related to my separate recorded issue of some of my artists identifying manually fine, but not being fetched automatically by a scan library task....
