I’m confused about how Media player manages video folders.
If I browse through my shares and add a folder as a Favorite, it will show up at the top of the screen as a favorite but its contents won’t appear in the Library section unless I put a check mark beside it in the Manage Library section under Settings.
So far, so good. However, if I want a folder’s contents to appear in my Library, but not in my Favorites row (because it clutters things up), I can’t do it. For folders to be scraped into the Library, they have to be added as Favorites. This is a frustrating limitation.
For example, let’s say I have my movie collection spread over three hard drives because it’s large and my hard drives are only 500 GB or 1 TB each. So, I have three movie folders named ‘Movies 1’, 'Movies 2’, and 'Movies 3’. I want all three movie folders to be consolidated as one in the movie section of the Library section of Media player. But, I don’t want the folders (‘Movies 1’, 'Movies 2’, and 'Movies 3’) to appear in the Favorites row because it adds unnecessary clutter and it, frankly, looks stupid. Sadly, this doesn’t appear to be possible.
Is there any chance that this could be fixed in a future release? So folders can be added to the Library without needing to be added to the Favorites section?
