Hi, and welcome. If you classify your movie library as either mixed content or home videos, then you will just get the generic presentation that you're looking for.

 

Alternatively, you can keep the movie classification to get your rich metadata, but there are user-specific settings to disable the enhanced presentation and go back to a plain folder view.

 

The moral of the story: explore, be adventurous, and you might just find what you're looking for :)

I was  excited when I saw this "folder view" option. Until I realised it is not a real folder view. It is Emby's opinion of the folder and not the real folder/file structure as seen in windows explorer. Instead it is displayed as mentioned above....

 

I get strange anomalies such as this one mentioned too.  Sometime a folder (or sub folder) will not show the contents, Emby decides it is an individual item such as a film or episode, and shows one of the files inside it instead of the folder contents, such as that "turn up the bass 9" above.

 

Please add a *real* folder view option.

 

Couldn't agree with you more, came back here to see if this has been implemented yet. Not quite there yet, wish I had the background to help out 'cause when this happens all the other softwares are out the window, wifey is happy and they can take my money ;-)

This has been added to the current beta 3.0.5876.0.  But it is no different then the previous Folder View. 

 

Personally for me I would like it back in View Styles to only display folder view for music.

Not quite sure if I'm missing something here or ??

 

I am on Emby Server Version 3.0.5878.0

 

I have the "Folders" view enabled and listed on far right of menus at top (in Music section). Here is my folder structure and what shows up:56c2c59ac10a7_Music01.jpg

56c2c5bf848b7_music02.jpg

 

It appears the server thinks this folder is an artist??  I noticed when I clicked on the Edit button there was a MusicBrainz ID:

56c2c6234229d_music03.jpg

 

I tried deleting the ID and nothing happened. So there seems no way of navigating into a directory 2 levels down? Anyone have any ideas? If a log would help let me know. This is using the web client btw.

SO ... it seems I missed the "mixed content" setting for the library so there's no metadata scraping. For the other noobs out there this seems to get a folder view navigation to work ... but I don't know if this is quite the right way going about this???

Having the same problem that top-level folders are seen as content. See images below. I would like to be able to have real folder view with metadata for artists, albums and tracks.

Another, corresponding problem is that I don't get a folder view in BubbleUPnP anymore.

 

I hope both options can be solved?

 

Cheers,

Joost

Newer releases of the server have a folders tab under music.

Hi Luke,

 

I'm on 3.0.5913.0. The screenshot above shows the folder tab ('Mappen' in Dutch). Any idea on how to solve this?

And the problem that I don't get a folder view in an upnp/dlna app?

 

Cheers,

Joost

When I select for instance the folders 70s, 80s and Blues (with the music icon) not the underlying artists folders are displayed but this:

Thanks. Looking forward to it.

 

And do you have a solution for my other remark: no folders option in the dlna apps. I use BubbleUPnP and tried also MediaHouse which both have that problem.

its a useful alternative that on an organised collection (music library\artist\albums), folder view shows real album artist albums only (rather than muddled up with compilations and other albums featuring the artist).

Hopefully this organisation will come to the database view :-)

It works. Thanks for your work.
