CoverArt: Treatment by media source

Recommended Posts

schmitty

Hi,

 

I would like to know if there is a way to apply treatments to cover art by the media source. Currently, my library is configured as below:-

 

\\SERVER\Movies

\\SERVER\Movies\Blu-Ray

\\SERVER\Movies\Downloaded

\\SERVER\Movies\DVD

 

\\SERVER\TV

\\SERVER\TV\Blu-Ray

\\SERVER\TV\Downloaded

\\SERVER\TV\DVD

\\SERVER\TV\HDTV

\\SERVER\TV\SDTV

 

 

CoverArt is configured with individual profiles for media source

 

\\SERVER\TV\Blu-Ray

with a specific treatment of...

BD items will use the BD cover

 

 

My files are named:-

 

Name.SXXEXX.V:CO-A:CO.Q:A-V:SO.ext

I was wondering if it is possible to apply the cover treatment by the V:SO (Video Source) in the filename?

When you create a new profile, it will ask you for the path to apply the profile to. Any treatments in that profile only apply to its path.

 

It doesn't use the filename for the cover art as far as I am aware. It reads the metadata.

Perhaps Luke or Ebr could assist with this?

 

The Q:A is quality, the V:SO is Video Source (DVD, BluRay, HDTV)

 

Should the Blu-Ray source be BluRay or BD?

 

 

I recently restructured my library to remove the individual source directories, as it was a pain to browse that way. So now it is just \\SERVER\TV\Series

As Koleckai stated, we don't derive any of this information from custom tags in the file name.  CA does support a custom property on movies which shows in the Metadata editor as "Treat Image As".

 

However, you are dealing with TV episodes here and those are not treated differently based on their format.  There is just a single episode treatment in each image style.

Is it possible to have an option at the series and season level to "Treat Image As", and have the season level treatment override the series treatment, if it applied?

 

Or even detect the source by keywords in the filename.

Probably not in the near term unless a whole lot of demand pops up for it. Sorry.

That's a shame. It would be a heck of a lot easier than having to set up treatment rules for individual series or seasons.

Any word on adding 'Treat image as...' to the Series and Season level info pages?

Would this request really take that much work to implement?
