Yes i have seen that it should worked in 3.0.6200.0 but it doesn't work on the new version.

 

Take some subfolder as a movie/music file, without possibility for change.

Yes it's really simple. I make a repo and use the folder view

 

there is

## Action subfolder 1

 - filmfolder 1

 - filmfolder 2

 - filmfolder 3

 - filmfolder 4

....

## Comedy subfolder 2

 - filmfolder 1

 - filmfolder 2

 - filmfolder 3

 - filmfolder 4

....

## Fantasy subfolder 3

 - filmfolder 1

 - filmfolder 2

 - filmfolder 3

 - filmfolder 4

....

## Horror subfolder 4

 - filmfolder 1

 - filmfolder 2

 - filmfolder 3

 - filmfolder 4

....

 

For the most it is working, but in case for the genre folder named ## Horror it doesn't display any filmfolder, in this case he makes a filmentry for the Rocky Horror Picture Show. You can delete and change the information but it will never browseable.

 

Tried to rename it like ## Horror Films, then it links directly to one of the filmfolder. Can't find why.

It is really strange that there is no option to make a folder manually as subfolder but anyway.

 

With Music, it doesn't work completly as music, then it appears like the screens already posted with all music files as one. So i have to use mixed content, and then in the drectory view some subfolders appears as songs like with the #horror folder.

In the Videos it happens like that, in this case, all films will shown as additional content and original subfolder is pointing to any folder - not with the content described.57c9a001ba4e5_screen.jpg

i Have seen that Folders with the name "This is the name (DVD)" will break emby and make a lot of mysterious malfunctions. Like that i've described.

In the Explorer view there shouldn't be a problem with any name. The folder view is also the same as i choose mixed content and in both the same problem occurs.

Does your "Horror" folder have any video files directly within it?

it is just a folder with subfolders, there is no file in it. Since i moved out all Folders with DVD Files in, it was indexed correctly but soon i give a subfolder with a VIDEO_TS Folder and files in, it makes this error.

@ Mr Bazinga

 

MB is a great project- love it and am going to purchase a life-time "emby premiere" any minute now... MB solves many problems in my home media-center. And I also know that it is not an easy task. resp. impossible task to please everyone.

 

Having said that I must complain about the "folder-view":

In addition to the librarys (which are great) MB needs a plain folder view. menaing displaying and handling items as files- not library entries. Many people have the need for this (including me) and have requested the feature for some time now.

It would be a great improvement in a sense that MB could take on many more usecases as it does today. (Something like the pure "Files" view in Kodi- this has nothing to do with a library, there are also no DB-entries for these items).

 

2 of my usecases that can not be handled with MB (at least not in an acceptable way) :

- a media folder that contains new (legal) downloads and purchases that yet have to be named/organized.

- classical music collection

and I am sure there are more.

 

You have never (and yes I did read the whole post) given a straightforward answer to this request. All I hear are things like "mixed-content" or "homevid". But this is obviously not the solution. (In "homevid" no music gets displayed and  "mixed content" gets synced to "emby/kodi-addon" and if the content is not properly org. it gets screwed up big time.) You can see- there are many problems arising from the fact that this feature is not present. I am not interessted in a discussion how to work around my issues. I really would appreciate a "proper" solution- like a plain folder view. As already stated by others this is a really, really basic function I can not unterstand why you would not take this request more seriously. Or at least admit that there is no "file-view" at the present and let us know if you intend to change this or not.

 

 

Cheers

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

Hello everyone,

 

I know this topics was created in 2016 but right now in 2018 im using emby 3.3.1 and i can't see folders tab view under music... It is not like the post quoted below..

 

Here is a screenshot

5ac0bdece94a8_Capturedecran20180401a1307

 

Im still looking for a true folders view.

 

I activated folder view under library display but it's not a true view of folders.

 

Please can you tell me if i missed something ? is it normal that I can't see true folders view ?

 

I would say a big thanks to emby support for the accomplished work :)

 

Clems

I updated to the newest emby server and there is still no folder view for Music, I also tried and activated the option to to display a folder view for all media and it doesn't work it displays everything as media and not folders.

 

I don't really need the folder view for all media, I was excited to think that there was going to be a tab for music that could display my music as folders.

There's no tab inside the music section. What you would do is enable the server option to display the folder view. Why do you feel that doesn't work?

I know that there's no tab in music, but there should be one, anyways, by activating the folder view,its behavior it is the same as if I access it through my regular library.

In what app? What version of Emby Server are you running?
