  • Feature Request Allow server to update/write meta info files for movies/videos

    I'm having trouble with the media server retaining information regarding ripped movies and shows right now after reboots. I've also had to rip my Blu-rays and DVDs directly to my desktop and copy them over to the DMS because sometimes DVDFab will stop ripping when switching to a new title on the same disc. This means that I don't get to rip the meta files needed.

    Could we please, through the menu, have a way to fix the metadata and select an option to write the appropriate meta file to the folder so that the change remains even after a reboot?

    Are you just having this problem after the new update? Which firmware are you using? Even if they did provide a fix for the metadata by way of the menu, which is already an option through the website to update the metadata there. The problem still remains after you reboot the movie server and it updates there. The fix would be for the movie server to retain your metadata information and it doesn't. Hardware or software....

      I haven't rebooted the server in a long time. It's just been fairly recent. One example of something where the meta data *never* remains is for the 2018 NA Blu-ray release of Christopher Robin. Even after I fix the metadata for this movie, the next time the DMS refreshes its data, not even rebooting, it goes back to not knowing what the movie is, just the name of the file and that it's a movie. The description, the poster, everything is missing.

        You can currently do minor edits to the metadata from the DMS gui itself. See the screens below, which are accessed by first selecting the title on the poster wall. If you can't access th poster wall or changes you make are not preserved, you need to submit a log as described here: https://forum.dvdfab.cn/forum/dvdfab...og-submissions Send me a PM if you can't obtain the log. There is an easy upload straight to the developers if you have a Facebook account.
