[Solved] Mediabrowser search limit setting at 12?

Is there a way to increase the value for the number of returns the search brings back?

An example, I have 45 L.L. Cool J music videos in random folders, when I search for the term L.L. Cool J, I get 12 returns showing the different folders that they exist in, the search is not returning the 45 I actually have across the given folders.

But if I look at the folders, they are indexed and I can see them all against explorer where the counts do line up and are indexed.

It just seems the search return is locked to 12, I want to increase that number, how do I do it?

Thank you.

Re: Mediabrowser search limit setting at 12?

I've looked high and low inside the \lib .jar files (extracted) and I can't find any reference except "MAX_VALUE" which is used in several areas of the .class files. I've looked through the .js files too, not sure if I missed something there after I unminified them. I am looking to move it from 12 to like 60 or something like that so I can get the most results if not all the results when I search for something.

Anyone have any thoughts at all where I can look to fix this?

Thanks,
Chris

yes, it's hardcoded in MediaBrowser. The code is scrambled so it'll be hard for you to find, but it's inside the mediabrowser.jar somewhere.

Re: Mediabrowser search limit setting at 12?

I'm just curious, why would something like that be hard coded down? Is it a free vs pro thing?

Thank you.

Re: Mediabrowser search limit setting at 12?

Finally got this sorted, for those that want more than 12 results when searching a term and there are more than 12 possible hits:

Original code is:
  Code:
search:function(e,f){var g=a.secureUrl("/cds/search/"+c.profile()+"/"+b.lowercase(f)+"/"+e+"/0/12");


New code is:
  Code:
search:function(e,f){var g=a.secureUrl("/cds/search/"+c.profile()+"/"+b.lowercase(f)+"/"+e+"/0/5000");


This is found in the javascript file MediaBrowser-1.9.0-9.js that is compressed in the serviio-mediabrowser-web.jar file in \program files or \program files(x86)

This will return up to 5000 results instead of just 12, I have no idea of the ramifications on the system actually having the ability to return 5000 results without crashing, but this is what I am using for my setup based on my needs.....it will undergo testing and I'll update this thread if I ever see an issue. Thus far it has been able to return all 45 of my results without issue.

Hope this helps save someone some time.

Re: [Solved] Mediabrowser search limit setting at 12?

I would like to thank you very much for this helpful hint !
I never understood why mediabrowser did not find all related stuff. This was very annoying.
With your simple patch the mediabrowser search function does finally work for me !!!!!! :D

Now the only thing I would like to have is a possibility to sort the search results after date.
At the moment the results are alphabetic. Is there a way to change that ?

I'm not sure, but I'll take a quick look, I assume there has to be something what field set to sort by. I would assume it can be done if it's reading the metadata correctly, but unsure if it will be an numeric or logical sort. If I find something I'll report back.
