Single File in Folder, Folder Ignored

Recommended Posts

a1pilot

Morning,

 

I have a library setup as "home video", such that it doesn't try to do any magic with the files (i.e. TV show organisation).

 

If I have a folder with a single video file in it, it ignores the folder and just shows the file in the main list.

 

Example (expected view):

 

Folder 1 > 10 videos

Folder 2 > 5 videos

Folder 3 > 1 video (called test.mp4)

Folder 4 > 5 videos

 

Will display as:

Folder 1

Folder 2

Folder 4

test.mp4

 

Is there a setting / reason it ignores folders if they only have one file?

 

Thanks

Yes, because that is a very popular way to store movies (and all their related metadata).

 

If you use folder browsing, do you see the folder?

I'll check on folder browsing. Not sure if I can also do that with DLNA as well though (separate issue no doubt).

 

But it does this with TV shows too. If there's only one episode it just shows that in the list without any context.

In a TV type library with a properly named episode file?
