OK, so here’s the situation.
I have a shared called “media”
It has several directory structures:
iTunes Music<iTunes structure>
The “DVD” folder works, but I have purchased many seasons of TV shows and media doesn’t support TV shows on DVD. Bummer, but can I exclude them then? That way they won’t show up and drive me crazy when they get mis-categorized
Similarly, the “iTunes Music” folder works, but it doesn’t handle two things properly:
It doesn’t seem to read the file metadata, so it tries to file the movie based on the filename, not on the file’s metadata. This is annoying!
It doesn’t seem to know what a music video is. This is a bit funny, because C Lo Green’s “Fuck You” video came up as “Young People Fucking”. Which I hadn’t heard of before. I was a bit surprised
I’d like to be able to restrict filetypes in a particular directory, or to restrict some directories from being scanned at all (or to have a way to easily clean them up/remove them from the media player if they do get scanned incorrectly)
What do you think?
PS: a document describing how DVD files should be labeled (there’s good docs on tv show names, but not on VIDEO_TS naming) would be great!
Or a wiki and we can add it for you
