Ignore Metadata?

Some of the videos I get have meta data and plex uses that metadata. Can I tell plex to ignore any meta data?

    Go to Settings - Server - Agents - Shows - TheTVDB
    In there, grab the line 'Local Media Assets' with your mouse and drag it downwards, so it ends up being at the bottom of the stack of active agents.
    Repeat the same under
    Settings - Server - Agents - Shows - TheMovieDatabase
    +
    Settings - Server - Agents - Movies - Plex Movie
    +
    Settings - Server - Agents - Movies - TheMovieDatabase

    The above will prioritize online metadata unless there is no online metadata for the particular item.
