MediaCenterMaster generated movie.xml

I am an Emby user who recently purchased a Sony Bluray player and I have been dissatisfied with Emby DLNA capabilities, so I am now testing Serviio.
So far I have added my bluray rips (mkv format) and I have to say it plays flawlessly even 12GB files across the wired network, I am very impressed.
I have been unable to get Serviio to recognise my saved metadata unfortunately. I use MCM to download and store the movie metadata in a single file, movie.xml. I have tried all the options in the console, but it doesn't seem that any of them work.
Where am I going wrong?
KUDOS for the great software, I am not transcoding anything right now, will test more formats today (avi, mp4 etc).
My BD player is a Sony BDP S5500.

Re: MediaCenterMaster generated movie.xml

This metadata format is not supported. You can raise a BitBucket ticket for it to be implemented in future, or find some tool to convert the metadata to (for example) XBMC format.

Re: MediaCenterMaster generated movie.xml

Mmmh I have 3000+ movies and 150+ TV series on my NAS, ideally I would not want to change something that works perfectly (it took me YEARS to get the right metatadata for each movie and tv series).I will log it on BitBucket, but I am actually prepared to pay for it... if you name the price!

Re: MediaCenterMaster generated movie.xml

If you write the ticket correctly, with example files attached, it should be easier to prioritise it for sooner rather than later.

Re: MediaCenterMaster generated movie.xml

Also is there a way to see the latest movies that were added on the NAS, when, like in my case, you are importing over 3K movies into Serviio at once, instead of gradually adding them to the server?

There's a setting in the Presentation panel on the Serviio console that shows last added. By default it is set to 10 or 20, I forget which. I have mine set at 50. You don't see this on the console itself, just as another selection when viewing on your display.

Re: MediaCenterMaster generated movie.xml

I noticed that, but it shows the latest items added to servio, not added to the NAS. For example, when I added my bluray folder to servio, it contains hundreds of movies, and it will only show the last ones that were scanned (probably in alphabetical order as it looks quite random) not the last ones I added to the folder (so sorting by file write date on the NAS).

Yeah, when you add that many at once, the only other indication you will get is the increased file count on the console status page. There's no other method to identify what has been added, unless you want to slog through the Serviio log. :lol:

Of course, it you're adding them to the NAS, you're adding them to Serviio, so you still see what was added. Still, it has the limitations that you noted.

Re: MediaCenterMaster generated movie.xml

So I started experimenting with MCM, as it can also create XMBC .nfo files.
There are two by products
1) this process updates the movie.xml file and creates a .nfo file for xmbc. The .nfo file does not report "date added" which is quite important for me, as it allows Emby to give me a last added view. Imagine having over 3500 movies, and having to view them all before you choose which movie to watch. It would be insane. Emby allows me to sort the movies by "latest added", which is embedded in the movie.xml. Not a big issue as MCM can produce both files, so I am not losing anything
2) the process of writing the files above changes the date of the folder in which the movies are written. Call me OCD but I do like to preserve the date order I have written the movies to the server. I know. Do I really need it? No. Do I want it? Yes..... :D

Re: MediaCenterMaster generated movie.xml

Is there enough interest in this feature?
