A quick question as I am a bit confused by Music Video file structures.

 

I am sorting out my music videos on my server and I think I have it right in that the music videos are stored in a Music Video share on the UnRAID server as:

 

Server/Music Videos/artist name/artist name - track name.ext

 

Example

 

Server/Music Videos/ABBA/ABBA - Dancing Queen.mp4

 

And all other ABBA videos are in the same folder.

 

The Share is listed as a Music Video folder in Emby.

 

However, what do I do for my music videos that are in *.VOB format? These are under a VIDEO_TS folder

 

Do I put them Server/Music Videos/artist name/artist name - track name/VIDEO_TS/artist name - track name.vob or should I be doing something else instead?

 

The Wiki is quite unhelpful for music videos - it just says it's the same as for movies...

In movies, file structures is one movie per folder (ie: Movies/Bird on a Wire (1990)/Bird on a Wire (1990).mp4)

In your case, each music video would require their own subfolder.

Then again, a dvd copy is either a show or video collection,

You could use Handbrake to convert it to a mp4 file and/or split the whole dvd into individual music video mp4 files.
