[BUG] MCEbuddy stuck in loop downloading metadata for shows


#1

Running the GA version for Windows 10.
Attempted to convert NBC Nightly News using the Fast MP4 option. Worked fine on the CBS broadcast, finished in 7 minutes.
But on NBC, it got into some kind of loop trying to pull data from IMDB for some reason?
I stopped the conversion after about 20 minutes of waiting for it to proceed from this step.
Attached the log here for your review and advice.
Thanks.NBC Nightly News With Lester Holt_20180810_18301900.ts-Convert to MP4-2018-08-10T19-14-00.8324070-04-00.log (177.1 KB)

Thanks for reporting this, re categorizing as a bug. This is specifically for cases with no season, rather year based shows which are taking longer to match the metadata than it should.

Fixed in today’s 2.4.9 BETA build. This bug affected shows which didn’t have season information to match on IMDB, instead it will compare the year now.

Thank you! I have had this issue and manually worked around it. Wasn’t aware that it was a bug, because news programs generally have problems with metadata, especially Plex. Appreciate the fix. Will download and install latest Beta!
