Hi Folks,


Love love love Emby + Roku.  Emku?  Roby?  Bromkue?  Nothing with the Brangelina ring it should have, will keep trying, but I digress.


Is anyone else having issues with either unset or home movie folders not playing media in subfolders properly?  If it's "unset" there seems to be no content shown in the subfolders.  If set to "home movies" I have better luck but some files seem to play as if they were many very short files.  


For example, newly arrived TV shows land in a folder that Metabrowser moves and sorts into its proper location.  I've tried to see this "to be sorted" folder via the Roku and if the media type is unset, I don't see much of it and the files I see can't be played properly.  If I set it to "home movies" I see more of the files but some of them show up in their subfolder and are played in 1 minute little jumps.  When the same files are sorted into their final locations, they play fine. 


WTF?  Any ideas?

it depends on what the folder structures look like, and if they follow the suggested conventions for those content types. if you can provide specific examples with screenshots of the folders we can help diagnose. thanks.

This folder is basically where new stuff lands, and there's unfortunately some variability in that.  Sometimes there's subfolders, sometimes not.  Everything works once it's sorted into its final destination by Metabrowser but until then some files play and other shows keep saying "loading..." and look like they're made of snippets.  Not sure how to better clarify but I'm happy to do whatever I can to help.


Thanks for the quick response.
