Hi, I got a question about the folders’ metadata with media player of ATV Flash (black). Because the NAS, which I use for Movies and TV Shows, isn’t only for me but for the whole family, they request that I put everything in a nice folder structure. With dvdrips there is no problem, I just make a directory with the VIDEO_TS an AUDIO_TS to the video section of the NAS and ATV Flash Media Player gives me all the metadata+fan art and I’m able to play if from the highest level (NAS/video).
However this in total contrast with the most kind of movies I use, because it’s the 21st century I download most TV Shows from the American and British iTunes Store, but because I’m dutch I remove the drm (Kigo m4v converter) and add afterwards the Dutch subtitles which results in 2 files. The same applies for bluray rips they’ve also a movies-file (mkv) and a subtitle file (srt). Because the NAS must not become a mess I put for each movie/tv show the movie file (m4v/mp4/mov/mkv) and the subtitle file (srt) in a collapsing folder.
This results in the following problem: when I go to the video section of the NAS, using the ATV FLash’ Media Player on my Apple TV, I must for almost all videos, first open the collapsing folder before I can retrieve the metadata or can play the movie. Mostly the latter is what my bother. Isn’t there a way to play directly from the starting point (NAS/video) all movies and TV Shows?
To make it a bit easier to understand have I made a scheme, how it is now:
And how I would like to have it:
