Manually setting recording path per recording.

Recommended Posts

guynamedbilly

In the Live TV settings you can set Recording Paths for movies and series, but there are some occasions where it would be handy to have a custom recording path set when you schedule a recording.

 

For example,  I have separate folders and libraries for Kids Movies and Kids TV Shows as well as my regular Movies and TV Shows folder.  If I schedule something for the kids, when I'm scheduling the recording I'd like to have an option to automatically send that recording to the Kids Movies folder.  I'm imagining that being in the settings menu, when looking at the recording through the guide.

Hi, yes this is something we'd like to add in the future, thanks.

This would be a great feature. I've just started using Live TV, and my daughter already wants to start recording her own shows. It would be great to be able to put these in her 'Kids' folder.

 

In the meantime I might setup a batch script to move them over from a default folder. I'm guessing this will break the recordings folder though.

don't think it will break it per se, but you probably  end up with duplicates as emby will not be able to track what you have already recorded.

Thanks. I tried to write something, but I couldn't work out a trigger for when Emby is finished recording.

Came here to put this in as a feature request and saw several threads asking for already. So I thought I'd add my two cents here.

 

When I used Plex a few years ago, there was already a custom recording paths feature. It was really nice because not only could I have Plex record specific shows to any directory I wanted, I could also define my MCE Buddy (commercial skipper software) rules off  the file directories. Without custom recording paths, I need to manually move files around a lot more and do awkward file pattern matching and folder swapping for MCE Buddy rules...and I have to do a lot more manual work in general with recordings.

 

Anyway, I see that this is already on the radar. Hopefully this will get some priority for the next release maybe pretty please (with a cherry on top)? I've been hoping this would be added during the couple of years I've been enjoying Emby. Thanks for making Emby so great.

@Luke Could you maybe just add a couple more folders, like for kids shows or other genres? I'd like to record my kids shows to Emby, but if I do it'll get mixed with my shows.
