PS4 and PS3 DNLA - Folders question


Recommended Posts

Not sure if anyone will know an answer to this.  I have a folder that has many films in it.  When I view these movies on the PS4 or PS3 many of them show up in the movies folder with a poster to identify them.  Others show up in another sub folder, and if I click in those, then I see the poster.  Problem is, alphabetically, the folders show up first, throwing off the order.


Any idea why some movies are put in a subfolder?  They are not in subfolders on the hard drive.  Could it be because some are a different file format?


When I view titles on the Roku, this isn't a problem, only on DNLA.


Thanks in advance!

you can disable this in dlna settings -> enhanced movies view


it creates an extra folder layer for movies that have trailers so that you can also access the trailer

Thank you Luke!  I'll check that out.


Still hoping for an actual PlayStation app some day.  I find using Emby on PlayStation clumsy, but at least it works!


Thanks again.

Hello, I'm looking to build a NAS, running FreeNAS and installing Emby. I also have a PS3. If all works out and I build the NAS, how can I access the Emby media server through the PS3? What steps do I need to take in the PS3 settings?


Thank you.
