I've been mulling over a new library type that would be great for a couple different content types that I feel the existing types don't cover properly, such as standup comedy and documentaries, as well as allow for users to make custom presentation arrangements & accommodate for non-standard stuff that might not even be scrapable too. I call it the "Showcase" type. In the attached pictures I have made mockups of how this would work. A library set to this type would collect its contents and then display them in rows similar to how Emby shows the recently added on the web interface frontpage already, with content arranged by the names of the folders that are the first tier in the library. IE: if the library is laid-out like this: Library\ -Root Folder 1 --Subfolder A ---FileA1 ---FileA2 ---FileA3 --Subfolder B ---FileB1 --File1 --File2 --File3 --File4 --File5 -Root Folder 2 --File1 --File2 --File3 -Root Folder 3 --Subfolder 1 ---FileA1 --File1 --File2 --File3 The library would be flattened to the first tier, with display scrollers showing: Root Folder 1 FileA1, FileA2, FileA3, FileB1, File1, File2, File3, File4, File5 Root Folder 2 File1, File2, File3 Root Folder 3 FileA1, File1, File2, File3 (for this example, assume that the files are chronological) Files in each foider scroller would be listed chronologically, or alphabetically if chronological data is not available. Some of examples of how this could be used: Standup Comedy Allie Wong Special 1, Special 2 Anthony Jeselnik Special 1, Special 2 Eddie Murphy Special 1, Special 2, Documentary 1 Richard Pryor Special 1, Special 2, Special 3, Documentary 1, Documentary 2, Movie 1, Movie 2, Movie 3 Hallmark Movies Garage Sale Mystery Title 1, Title 2, Title 3, Title 4, Title 5, Title 6, Title 7, Title 8, Title 9, Title 10 Jesse Stone Title 1, Title 2, Title 3, Title 4, Title 5, Title 6, Title 7, Title 8, Title 9, Title 10 Murder She Baked Title 1, Title 2, Title 3, Title 4, Title 5 SenatorIvy's Library of Random Approved Stuff Ivy's Top 3 Event Horizon, The Thing, Jaws Sharktown Jaws, Jaws 2, Jaws 3, The Shallows, 47 Meters Down, 47 Meters Down Uncaged, The Reef, Tintorera Family Movies file1, file2, file3, file4, file5, file6 Ivyland Favorites Movie 1, Movie2, Movie 3, Movie 4, Movie 5, Movie 6, Movie 7 Documentaries People Documentaries 1,2,3,4,5 Music Documentaries 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 Movie Documentaries 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 Wrestling WCW 1,2,3,4,5,6 WWE 1,2,3,4,5,6 -- Miscellaneous Safety Videos 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 Old 80s Garbage Shorts 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 Faces of Confused Elderly 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 Hopefully this makes sense and seems like a good idea; I have multiple libraries where this display format would make things much more presentable and easily browsed, as I'm sure others do as well.
