Updating movie metadata

Post by prosmart » Sun May 05, 2019 4:26 am


Running combined back and front end with the video library NFS mounted from a QNAP.
Version fixes/29 (v29.1-13-g329c235) on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

I'm having an issue with my video folder. It's currently divided into two sub-folders "Series" and "Movies".

Whenever I try to update my metadata using "Watch Videos -> "M" -> Retrieve All Details" I end up with some of the Movies being recognised but a lot of the metadata being retrieved for my "Series" folder.

The only way that seems to work (mostly) is by highlighting a single movie within Myth and updating the metadata using the "W" key. I have a lot of movies (600+) and this takes a helluva long time to do individually.

Is there any way I can download and update metadata for one folder (Movies) only from the command line? I would really like to update my movie metadata separately.

Any other suggestions would be gratefully accepted.
