Full Control Over "Edit MetaData" With the Ability to Edit and/or Override Movie Ratings and Movie Titles

It would be a great feature to have full control over “Edit MetaData” with the ability to manually edit Movie Ratings (R, UNRATED, PG-13, NOT RATED, G) and to also be able to edit the movie titles. For example the auto metadata feature only pulls standard Metadata titles from TMDB but doesn’t pull (Director’s Cut) (Extended Edition) or (Unrated Edition) variations even if the folders where the movies are in indicates that it is the “Extended Edition”.


You can do so by either putting an xml file next to the movie file (Metadata and Cover Art – Firecore Support) or by using
Plex as media server with the new Plex Integration and editing metadata in Plex


Thank you so much for the solution. I will try it out!! Cheers!

I tried your suggestion with the XML file but it is a bit tedious to do so. I was hoping for an on screen / in app “Edit” button to change select criteria in the movie MetaData without having to fill in all details in the XML like which actors were in it and etc. just to be able to change the title to (Extended Version)

I would like to be able to manually add metadata tags to a movie/show in the user interface. For instance, sometimes the audio format tag is either incorrect or missing. I would like to be able to add an ATMOS tag, as an example.

I’m pretty sure Infuse pulls this data from analyzing the files themselves (and not either local or remote metadata). If so, and it doesn’t tag the audio as expected, that’s a different issue — indicating it won’t pay it back as expected, either.

I have at least one movie that is listed as DD+ 5.1 on the details screen, but when I play it, my AVR recognizes it as ATMOS. I just want a way to add metadata tags in Infuse so that, for instance, the details page for this movie would display “ATMOS” with the audio format metadata.

What does MediaInfo identify the file as?
What are your AppleTV audio-out settings?

MediaInfo shows “Dolby Digital Plus with Dolby Atmos”

ATV is configured to allow Atmos over HDMI to my Onkyo 5.1.2 Atmos AVR. Like I said, this (and many other) movie plays correctly with Atmos output. It’s just that the details screen in Infuse doesn’t list Atmos as a metadata tag. Not a big deal, but would be nice to be able to add custom tags like Channels DVR allows for local media.

If that’s the case, then I guess the right fix would be Infuse adding support to display that tag when it detects a track which has that encoding.

I don’t have an Atmos setup, but imagine I must have such tracks; but I’m not seeing any indication of that anywhere in the UI (not on the details pages our Audio Track option pull downs) for any of the tracks I figured would show it. I just see the HDR/DV, AAC/Dolby Digital/Dolby Digital Plus/DTS-HD MA/TrueHD, and 5.1/7.1 flags. Might be a screen real-estate issue?
