Hi! First of all I think Infuse is a great app.
I currently try to find the best way to set it up, as there is a lot of possible ways. I see a major problem with metadata based organization of video files.
I have a large library with many movies and tv shows. I believe everything would be just fine if I had all the stuff in English, but I have:
- English movies with Czech subtitles / English movies with Czech audio
- the same with German, Polish, Chineese movies and TV shows as well
- Czech movies with Czech audio
So sometimes I see metadata in very curious way:
- name is in Czech, description is Czech/English/Slovak (!) or missing
- some non-English movies are not recognized well
- episodes of TV shows doesn’t match as in our country were broadcasted in different order (sometimes)
- names of Czech movies are in English
I would always prefer the movie/tv show title in original language followed by Czech translation, eg “Hair, The (Vlasy) [EN] [CZ-SUBS]”. The solution is not so complicated: just enable browsing folder by folder (with nested folders) with metadata turned off.
TV Shows: When I choose list view, I see my own artwork for every season. When I choose folder view, there is downloaded artwork I don’t like
Movies: I have collections, it means I have one main folder for Matrix and there are 3 subfolders for every Matrix movie. I see the name of main folder (“Matrix [COLL]”), but inside I don’t see subfolders but directly 3 movies (in wrong order - I know it can be fixed by sorting by filename), but I would prefer to see subfolder names instead of file/movie names.
Folders with subfolders are pre-ordered in folder view, first you see folders, than movies (movies from folder without any subfolder).
I know Infuse can decide if the content is movie or tv show, but wouldn’t be easier (after long click) let the user set type of folder (movie / tv show)?
Sorry for long post and my English :).
