I am only using list view and I wish to browse my files and folders the way I organize them on my PC.
However, if a folder only contains a single file, the folder is not displayed but only the file name, e.g. if the folder/file structure looks like this
then I get this when I navigate to the root
but I just want to see
and then open the Series B folder.
I can get around this problem by adding two dummy video files to each folder, i.e. the folder will still be displayed even if I delete all of the “real” video files or the folder originally contains just a single file, but I don’t think I should have to do that. I do not have this problem in MrMC/Kodi.
Is there a fix for this?
Am I just a minority of one who does not want to make use of thumbnails, cover art, metadata, etc? Does the list view simply behave like this due to philosophical differences?
I’ve got a lot of rips from YouTube and public TV stations and they are organized in folders with descriptive names whereas the file names themselves are left in their original state and are not always easily decipherable and certainly do not lend themselves to automatic downloads of any metadata.
