Emby Settings: Read Local Metadata Only, No Scraping#
When setting up an Emby server, we may come across existing Nfo files in our movie files when adding local resources or resource drives. In this case, we can choose to have Emby only read local metadata without scraping the movies. This approach not only achieves the purpose of having a poster wall but also saves the server's computational resources.
Steps to Set Up#
In the media library settings, only check the options for enabling real-time monitoring and enabling metadata readers. Do not check any other options, do not check any other options, do not check any other options!!! Then simply click "OK".
The same applies to movie settings.
