Episode detected as sample


#1

Sonarr version (exact version): 2.0.0.5252
Mono version (if Sonarr is not running on Windows): 5.12.0.226
OS: Linux on ARM (Drobo 5N)

Description of issue:

I’m having a strange issue for the first time: an episode is detected as a “sample” even though the file is a 4.44GB 1080p mkv. I’m guessing mediainfo is somehow not able to read the duration of the video properly?


#2

Likely. Check which version of libmediainfo you have installed and compare it to the latest available version, you’ll likely need to update.


#3

I’m not sure how to tell what version I have, since I downloaded a precompiled version for ARM from someone on the forums. However, I did notice that mpv could also not decipher the file length (treats it as a stream). VLC can, however.


#4

You may be able to ask them, otherwise, I’d assume it’s out of date and needs to be updated.
