I’d like to ask for a document (wiki?) that can explain some of the “how we think you should use our media player app” settings.
I have ripped all of my DVDs to my Synology NAS. Works fine. Wonderful.
I split them into categories. So I have a “media” share and in there is a “DVD” folder which has nothing but DVD rips.
- I used AnyDVD to rip them and they play fine, but I saved them as files, NOT as .iso images. Is this good or bad? What would the media player prefer?
- I put them into a "genre/title/video_ts" structure which works fine. Unfortunately, some of them are in "genre/title/disk1" which does not work fine. XBMC thinks I have a DVD of the television show 24. Because that's what came up "first" when it searched for "disc 1". I don't mind adding metadata to positively identify a show, but this "automatic" thing leaves a lot to be desired!
- Similarly, I put TV show DVDs into "television/show/season #/disc #". I don't _have_ episode 13 of a tv show. I have discs, because when I bought the DVD that's how they came. I don't want to spend the time ripping every episode individually, because I'm lazy. How can I make this work?
I can respect that this is a beta, and I think that a wiki would work well, but right now I feel like I’m flying blind The software works wonderfully (except for the “showing 4:3 instead of 16:9 when playing video_ts content” problem) but it would be awesome if it was just a LITTLE bit easier to work with
