Server - Allow revisions before publishing some media

I have a need to review the metadata, images, parental ratings... of all new media that comes new in my server, before other users (or even me) see them in TV, DLNA, Android App, etc...

 

I have 2 ideas, please let me know if any of those are possible:

 

Idea 1 - Create a library flag called "Hidden", where the media inserted in that library won't appear anywhere BUT the Metadata Manager, and inside there would be a button called "Publish" that simply moves the entire media folder to inside another Library.

Pros: All new media that just gets downloaded or copied in that folder/library will automatically fall in a backlog visible to the Emby server admin to review or play the media, before it gets seen everywhere.

Cons: One more folder/library to manage

 

Idea 2 - Create a Library flag called "Manual Validation", where if OFF, media in there would automatically be published (as of today), and if ON, new media would have to manually flagged as "Visible" on the devices.

Pros: No need for specific folder or library.

Cons: Forgetting to manual validate would make new items take more time to be published.... in case the admin gets sloppy.

 

 

What do you guys think?
