A single file in a folder

( proposal - request )

Settings:

Show the file without opening the folder if you are alone in the folder?
Yes or No
Also delete the folder if it becomes empty after deleting the file?
Yes or No

For me, both current solutions are confusing.

Strange:

If I look at several files in a row, the folder will remain after the last one is deleted.

Hi, usually it’s like, if there is another folder in the folder that carries the movie, you will see a folder.
I prefer seeing all movie posters on the screen, therefore I erase all folders inside the main folder.
But I also want to keep the main folders, as it looks better on the Mac finder.
Suggestion: Is it possible, always to show the poster, no matter if there are further folders in the movie folder? As an option of course?
That would save quite some work, and there would always be a nice screen, only showing posters, without folders.
Thanx :slight_smile:

I’m not a fan of the poster view.
In folder view, I get an unwanted conversion.
In Infuse I would like to see the file structure as I created it.

Hmm, nor sure what you mean with unwanted conversion.

A single file in a folder:
it is not in place
highlighted
deleting a file also deletes the folder

AX (folder) A1.Mkv + A2.Mkv
BX (folder) B1.Mkv
CX (folder) C1.Mkv + C2.Mkv
DX (folder) D1.Ts
EX (folder) A3.Ts

In Infuse view:

A3.Ts
AX
B1.Mkv
CX
D1.Ts

In PC view:

AX
BX
CX
DX
EX

Well, this is a topic for the infuse guys.
In anyway, the idea of infuse is not to reflect a pc view, but to deliver a more convenient and poster based interface. This is one of the main reasons, why people use infuse.
I think, If you don’t like it, infuse may not be the right app for you.

This thread is posted in the “Suggestions” forum and the OP is making a suggestion that Infuse offer the option of either flattening folders that contain only one video file which is now the standard action OR have the option to still show a folder even if it only has one video file in it.

It’s not saying there is a problem, it’s a suggestion for a new feature.

Another plus option:

Yes or No

I like to suggest the opposite option.
Always show the poster, even if there are further folders in the movie folder.
Just as an option:-)

You are more than welcome to start your own suggestion thread but this thread is for the OPs suggestion.

As a rule of thumb, it’s best to have only one feature/suggestion per thread since the likes that the first post gets indicates the interest by others.

@Kalimera: I like your suggestion. I hope they add an option to show folders with only one file in it.
