So, I have 2 folders on my PC, an Albums folder, where I store my albums (Albums/Artist/Album format), and an OSTs folder, where I store soundtracks (OSTs/Media title/OST format).

 

What I want Emby to do is, create a music library with a folders view, so that when I click on the library, it shows me two folders: Albums and OSTs. Then, if I click on one, I want it to be presented in a list format, following the folder structure, without any metadata or covers or anything. How do I do this?

Hi, your best option would be to do two separate movie libraries. This is what will give you that sub-folder layer. Please let us know if this helps. Thanks.

Just to be certain, I think Luke meant "Music Libraries" not "Movie." Not sure if that helps.

 

In the server dashboard you can click on libraries and go to the "Display" tab which has an option to enable "show a Folder view" which should get you what you want. The album, artist, and other views will still be available I think - this just adds another tab. You might be able to just add both folders to the same library for this to work, but I am not able to test/check right now.

Is there a way to access the folder view directly from the library (when clicking it), though? Now I have a library on the homescreen which I probably won't click, and that's a bit of a waste of space.

 

Anyways, the actual folder view works now. Thanks!

If you go to the display settings for the app, you can set what libraries are displayed on the home screen and what tab/view you want to go to when you click on it.
