No Musical Genre?

Wondering why the musicals in my movie library aren’t grouped into a “Musical” genre. There is a “Music” genre, but that has movies about music in it, but no musicals. The musicals are categorized as musicals in thetvdb database.

Welcome to the forum!

Infuse uses themoviedb for movie metadata so that may be part of the cause.

Infuse only uses thetvdb for television series.

Yup, that appears to explain the issue!

So, I created a themoviedb account and made reports on these musicals that they be added to the music genre. I got a reply to read their guidelines, which state that they do not support a musicals genre and will only add movies about music and music documentaries to the music genre, not musicals.

Yes I did the same thing a couple years ago. They are tagging them as musical but not setting a musical genre. Since infuse doesn’t look at the tabs it gets missed. Best bet is to create a collection of musicals or custom genre via xml files.

I just posted this update. Add support please

Thanks for posting your comment. Hopefully we can get more people to request it as well
