Which ID3 tags are mapped to which PLEX values when using "local media assets" for mp4



My files are all named according to my scheme. I'm not renaming them using filebot. All I need to know is, for example: In PLEX there is a metadata field "studio", which corresponding tag from ID3 map to it? And then, of course, I'd like to get a complete mapping of all fields and tags. This way I can rewrite the ID3 tags and not rename my already meticulously curated file system.


Little off topic. I like to use a nfo creator like Mediaelch or tinyMediaManager. This will generate a nfo file in the directory of your movie file.

Combined with the XBMCnfoMoviesImporter agent this give me excellent metadata and full control over it. You might want to give it a try in a test library.


Those two apps didn't help much. I tried tinyMediaManager but couldn't find a way for it to read my filenames and then produce NFO files. But I wrote a custom script (AutoIt) to produce a .nfo (XML) file, parsed from my filenames. Then using XBMCnfoMoviesImporter agent I got my data into PLEX. Thanks for steering me in the right direction.


Does anyone have, for reference, the complete mapping of all fields and tags that @brolloks asked about?

My goal is to create my own metadata, either by editing it into .mp4 videos directly or creating .nfo files, but both ideas require a more thorough understanding of tag mapping in Plex.


You can get a real idea from this post. I’m not saying every tag is accounted for but damn near it.

Those were both really helpful, thank you very much!
