Because when i enable the Folders option, and then i click on my music library, I see folders. I no longer see the music tabs up at the top with Albums, Artists, etc.

For me it does show the tabs when I view the music library, but it doesn't in folder view.

The only way for me to see a library with folder view is to set the content to "mix", but this trick only works with movies not music.

But honestly I don't care about the folder view, I don't use or need it, I was just reporting it.

The only thing that I would use is a folder view for music, but I know that it was taken away from the music tab because it was not working.

Thanks

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?

Where do you enable this using a browser like Chrome on a laptop? I cannot figure this folder view out. I am very tech savvy and a recent convert from PLEX. I've been able to figure out most everything else using Chrome to manage Emby. The ROKU app doesn't give me any options for folder view.

Perhaps @Luke could provide a screenshot or two showing the UI navigation for Folder View using Chrome if it's available. I'd take any screenshot using any app from @Luke at this point.

I am using Emby in a container on unRaid 6.x. The server is headless so I HAVE to use a browser. I alternate between Chrome and Opera.

I really would like Folder view on the six Roku devices on my network.

Hi, the upcoming 3.6 will have improved support for folder views. Please try that once available. Thanks.

Hey Luke,  hate to open such an old thread but is this possible now with v4? I'm on 4.1.1 with Xpenology. 

 

I'm a premium member and I need this feature badly, i'm only using Emby for live tv now but i can live without it  since my IPTV provider has its own epg and recording. And honestly I only still pay for emby in hopes of getting this feature.

 

The main thing i need, the only thing actually, that i need from Emby, is to learn how to have Emby view my files on my synology as they are stored. 

 

I dont need movie covers or anything fancy at all! But i really  do need to see the file structure of my shared videos.

 

If i could figure this out, i'd definitely go lifetime vs mo to mo with my subscription for Emby

 

 

Thanks Pal

Hi.  Folder views have been added across the board I believe.  Have you tried it?
