I have an external disk full of movies and lend it to my brother.
The film folder is full of nicely named or scene named movies, but it's hard for my brother to see/know what some of the films are.
It'd be nice to have a "Contents.html" page on the disk that he could open to see the poster view page we get to see in emby!
The poster view alone would allow them to work out what most movies were kind of about and whether they want them... but perhaps the posters could be clickable to go to the metadata page for that movie.
The page would be generated for a Media Location, so it'd just show what movies that are in that folder, that has been included in an emby library. the html file would be created in the root of that folder.
The external drive would be currently holding folders added to emby's libraries... (could it export the moves and data to an external disk?)
This 'contents' page would be generated/updated on demand, so if i was lending the disk to my brother tonight, i'd ask emby to create the contents page for this specific media location or to update/recreate it if it had previously been created...
The contents.html's images/data would be stored in a folder (just like a saved webpage does), perhaps hidden, say '_embydata'... This would include all the posters, metadata, etc. if they're not already set in emby to be saved in the media folders. All links relative so the whole folder could be moved/copied.
The contents page would be paginated, i'm guessing only statically, set at creation time, so 200, 500, whatever...
Just a simple poster page would be awesome for what i'm needing, but one with clickable metadate, other bells & whistles would be good later.
