Same episode metadata across seasons.

I have this problem where the seasons themselves have correct meta data, while the episodes have some issues.

For example
In season 1, the episodes have correct metadata, but in season 2, the episodes have the same metadata of season 1 episodes.

 

Im still new to this so my folder structure might be broken?


Anime\Overlord\Season 2\Overlord II S02E01.mp4
Anime\Overlord\Season 3\Overlord III S03E01.mkv

 

Anime being root folder

Ive refreshed, scan lib files, deleted nfos and images, and refreshed, scan lib files again, but they still do that.
 

Any help would be nice, Thanks in advance

 

Images as example:

Season 2 (I have no season 1 of overlord)

Hi.  Are there any nfo files with the episodes?  If so, what is in them?

Yes, thank you for replying

I have a feeling it's a naming issue.  Instead of this:
Anime\Overlord\Season 2\Overlord II S02E01.mp4
Anime\Overlord\Season 3\Overlord III S03E01.mkv

Overlord II & Overlord III are a bit strange.

Could you try this instead which would fit our suggested naming convention:
Anime\Overlord (2007)\Season 2\Overlord - S02E01 - The Dawn of Despair.mp4
Anime\Overlord (2007)\Season 3\Overlord - S03E01 - A Ruler's Melancholy.mkv

Remove any NFO and graphic files keeping just your media.

FileBot (https://www.filebot.net/) makes this super simple to rename files which is what I used for the above file names.

Only thing I can think of would be bad cached metadata, as I can not reproduce with original naming scheme.

What providers do you have enabled on the library and what order?

  • i have deleted the entire cached metadata folder
  • i have the anime plugin, and ticked their checkboxes across settings, but i put tvdb as high priority whenever possible

after deleting the cached metadata folder, it worked itself out somehow, i am very thankful for the support ❤️

Was this media on a GDrive or local drive?

What did you change?

i deleted the nfo and graphics over and over and changed naming a few times
then i noticed that its the same everytime, and i thought maybe it is cache, so when i deleted the cache it sorted itself out

> i use my own python scripts for the renaming and deleting of files hahahaha

They were not a common naming scheme, but I used your original episode naming with out issue.

But in the end it sounds like corrupted/bad cached provider metadata was the issue.

You technically only need to delete the specific provider id folder for the series that was having issues, but deleting  the entire cache doesn't hurt anything.  Emby will just query all providers again.
