Metadata

Can someone point me to where metadata is dealt with in serviio? I have some series that are being misinterpreted as movies and completely filling up the movies directory. Is metadata embeded in the files themselves?

Re: Metadata

If you label them correctly they should be picked up.

examples:

House Season 1 Episode 1
House Season 1 Episode 2

or

House S01E01
House S01E02

Some files already have metadata embedded but if they dont serviio goes here (thetvdb.com) to find matches.

Re: Metadata

Exactly what I was looking for, thanks for the wiki link. Will be back when I've debugged what's going on...

Re: Metadata

So, I'm inspecting my serviio instance with upnp-inspector. It shows a bunch of movies all "24:Redemption", which are actually the TV series, not the movies. Is there a way I can track an individual movie to the file serviio serves up on request? If I turn on detailed logging in serviio, is there a way to get more info on how the pattern matching is actually being resolved? My files look like this:

24.s05e01.avi

Which should match the first pattern from the wiki:

"file name includes S01E01, S1E2 or S1E01 (e.g. MySerie S01E02.avi)"

Unless of course case matters, which would be unfortunate.

The parent folder is /24/Season 5/

that does look ok and passes my test as well. you could enable detailed logging click Update video metadata on the metadata tab and check which web site it's going to (should be thetvdb.com, not themoviedb.org). NB: this will update metadata of all your files, if you want to try just this one you could just rename it slightly or move to another folder so that Serviio picks it as a new file.

Re: Metadata

i cant get to the site to check (company blocked it :( ) but i think the 24 tv series has to have (us) as part of the name for it to work:

So " 24 " would be liek this " 24 (us) "

just like these series

" House " has to be " House M.D " to work
" Prime Suspect " has to be " Prime Suspect (us) " to work

Re: Metadata

I ended up using filebot and batch renamed things. Might go back and turn on detailed logging on to debug a bit more.

What's the best practice with respect to one off shows that are not part of a series? E.g. I have some documentaries that I'd like to have available to my TV, but they're not really series or movies. Is there a way to get them visible only in the folders view?
