Description

Metadata seems to be associated with the position of a file as apposed to the file itself.

I use a folder with my new movies and when I watch them I move them to a new folder or delete them. I deleted a movie last night and although the movie is gone, the metadata for that film has now appeared on top of another film and subsequently, all films listed below have the wrong metadata now. I tried to refresh the metadata but nothing has changed.

upnp: Include video playback URL in canonical URL

Fixes problem with UPNP servers that just give sequential numbers to
directory items. If just using the URL items would be confused with
other items if video are removed from the directory

Fixes #1697

Change included in version 4.3.199

Yeah it's only the filename (or actually the full path) that is used to key metadata.

Do you actually call the new movies with the exact same filename as the old movies?

#2 Updated by John Smith over 7 years ago

I have attached some pictures to help explain what is happening.

Picture 1 shows you the showtime screen while picture 2 shows you what is actually on my hard drive. As you can see from picture 2, Life of Pi has been moved from this folder where as the change has not taken place in showtime. In fact in showtime Life of Pi is really the movie Lincoln, Lincoln is really ParaNorman, ParaNorman is really Promised Land and so on. I had this issue once before and I was able to refresh the metadata of the file and it was fixed, this time nothing seems to work (except for resetting all metadata which I was hoping to avoid).

Hope this helps to clear up the issue I am having

#3 Updated by John Smith over 7 years ago

I have managed to fix the issue by moving the offending files out of the folder and then placing them back in

I assume this is over an UPnP/DLNA server? What UPnP/DLNA server software are you using?

#5 Updated by Andreas Smas over 7 years ago

Hm now that I think about it this must be a regerssion after i implemented support for continious playback in upnp browse results.

i'll try to fix it later tonight

It is over UPnP/DLNA server. I am using Universal Media Server.

I just realized that while this patch will kinda fix the issue it will cause others (When a new movie appears Showtime will forget all the info about the old ones)

  • Priority changed from Normal to Urgent

This really needs fixing...
