A tool for tagging Emby content

A thousand times THANK YOU.   This has made an impossible chore into a breeze.   

Is there a possibility for a progress bar for those with "slower" machines?   Say the page is editing a folder with multi-hundred items - would be nice to see if the process is hung (not that it ever has), instead of guessing (and retrying).   

And this definitely should be a plugin of some sort in the plugins catalog.

Thanks Magsajo...  Yes a progress bar is possible.  What activity would you like it on?  I will look into the difficulty of doing this.

Magsajo,  I will add a progress bar for bulk edits early next week.  I have Easter plans with the family.

Thanks for the suggestion. It was a great idea.

Magsajo, The progress bar for bulk edits has been added. See the attached code.  I got it done early because I could not sleep last night 🙂

Hello Super957...

Yes you can.  Go to filter and select "video type".  This pull down list includes the resolutions you want to filter on.  Let me know how it works.

VIc,  Thanks for this tool. Nice work.

Filter Video Type allows 4k, HD, SD... blu-ray

I cannot pick 1080P, separately from 720P  - It seems you cannot select 1080P type videos, separately from 720P.  HD mixes them together.  My understanding of the 1080P and 720P definition is:

  • Width: 1920 < 3840 gets 1080P
  • OR Height: 1080 < 2160 gets 1080P
     
  • Width: 1280 < 1920 gets 720P
  • OR Height: 720 < 1080 gets 720P

These values are already in the metadata and can just be pulled from there, instead of trying to figure them out on the fly.  My motivation is to create a 1080P collection.

===

Searching by genre:

1) Searching for custom genre with multiple words fails.
 The two worded genre from imdb is TV Movie.  I can add extra genres.  In my case I added Super Hero, Time Travel.  All these fail on searches, because they are two words.

 2) && || and != searches are not possible

I tried && and could not search for Romance && Comedy.  jQuery allows this type of 'if' selections with && and ||, but these variables would need to be written into the GUI.  It's proabably easier with multiple fields in the genres and && and || switches between each field.  If you let the user type the entire search parameter with &&,  OR ||, not equal !=  you have to parse the genre field text and some genres could be custom and have more than one word.  This is sort of an edge case feature and I am not sure who else would like to use it.  I would guess you would have to set the number of possible genre mixes.  I think 4 fields would be enough for almost anything.

My motivation was to create a Romance && Comedy combined movie collection.  Each film would have both genres.  This collection seems the most obvious one.  There are other reasons someone might like to use this feature to make collections:

  1. Mystery || Suspense || Thriller 
  2. Sci Fi || Fantasy
  3. 1080P && Drama
  4. Drama && Comedy  (there are actually a lot of these films with this combination)
  5. Drama != Comedy 


Anyway, these are just some ideas for features.  I can also send you jQuery code that does all of these features using variables, if that would help.   

Please don't bother to code this, just from my suggestion. Would anyone else like to have any of these features?

Hello visproduction...

Thanks for the comments and ideas.   I don't mind adding things just for you.  I just need to understand what you are asking to be done.  I will study your suggestions today.

Visproduction, are you sure thar Emby supports genres with embedded spaces?  I tried a few examples and they all failed.

@VicMoore Excellent, thank you!

2 questions:

  • Can you add an option to cascade the parental rating to sub-folders? So if I have 2 folders, both with multiple videos, I'd like to just be able to select the folders and apply the parental rating to both the folder AND the sub-videos in BOTH folders.
  • Why are there 2 tools? They look very similar.

Sorry for the delay...

The new tool is a rewrite of the old tool. I did this because the old tool contained lots of test code that helped me learn the Emby API. This included a bunch of code that had nothing to do with changing a files metadata. One example is IPTV.  The new code improves the old design, but it can still be improved. For example, there is a considerable amount of duplicated code and in many places, I used inline CSS, just to make things simple. 

To answer your question about folders, this tool can only do what the API's allow it to do.  All the magic happens inside the Emby server.  With my current understanding, I don't think I can do what you are asking.  However, I have been corrected several times by people that know the API far better than I. They showed me how to do what I thought impossible. Maby this will happen again.

Heyhey.

Sorry I started on that CSS redesign of v22 and then dropped off the face of the planet. It's been a busy couple of weeks. I plan to put some more time into it again this week.

@VicMoore

am i missing something, or is it not yet possible to delete all the red tomato ratings so that you can update them once?

Hello Seger...  I have no idea what "red tomato" ratings are.   I am willing to help but have not encountered "red tomato" in any of the API's that I have used.  Could you explain red tomato to me?

"red tomato"

That would be Rotten Tomatoes ratings that we actually get from OMDB.  But it is the "CriticRating" in the database.

The odds are what you have is all you will get as this is dependent on OMDB updating their metadata for us to get something different.

CriticRating

I have now been able to solve it for myself by using TinyMedia Manager to reload all the ratings, this obviously deletes the Rotten Tomatoes ratings. After that I was able to search for new metadata via Emby and it downloaded the most recent ones.

I am a little slow picking up on what people are asking me to do.  I just realized that Genres could have embedded spaces, like "TV Movie."  In my code I remove these spaces when searching. I will correct this mistake later today or tomorrow.  Sorry for the slow response.  

Thanks visProduction for pointing this out.

Just tried the latest tool to set parental rating to APPROVED on a couple libraries and it doesn't seem to have done anything.

Hello rideekulous...

Parental ratings works for me.. Explain exactly what failed and I will fix it.  Are you using version 24?

The "save" button saves the metadata for the displayed item.  To bulk edit all of the selected items use the "bulk edit" button.

The attached code corrects the problem with tags and genres having embedded spaces ( like TV Show ).

VisProduction, please let me know if this satisfies your needs. If not, I will change it  🙂
