Different Folder Structure Empty
PostSubject: Different Folder Structure   Different Folder Structure Icon_minitimeThu Apr 15, 2010 4:04 pm

Because it seems there isn't any way to do this:
I would like to have Media Companion get information for my Movies, which are saved like this:
root is:
c:\Movies
in there are the Movies:
c:\Movies\The Matrix
c:\Movies\The Sword in the Stone
...
in the Movie-Folders are Subfolders for different Formats for different Devices:
The Matrix\DVD\Video_TS
The Matrix\AVI\mtrx.avi
The Matrix\MP4\mtrx.mp4
The Sword in the Stone\DVD\Video_TS
The Sword in the Stone\AVI\tsits.avi
The Sword in the Stone\MP4\tsits.mp4
...

Obviously i would like MC to put the Information in the Movie-Folder-Root (and only there):
The Matrix\The Matrix.info
The Sword in the Stone\The Sword in the Stone.info

The normal Folder-Scraping puts the Information in the Videofile-root:
The Matrix\DVD\...\mtrx.info
The Matrix\AVI\mtrx.info
The Matrix\MP4\mtrx.info
The Sword in the Stone\DVD\...\tsits.info
The Sword in the Stone\AVI\tsits.info
The Sword in the Stone\MP4\tsits.info

The offline Folder-Scraping puts them in every Folder:
The Matrix\The Matrix.info <-- that one i like
The Matrix\DVD\DVD.info <-- not good
The Matrix\AVI\AVI.info <-- not good
The Matrix\MP4\MP4.info <-- not good

So please do either of the following:
Add a Folder-Scraping Pattern so that people can use it with different Folder-Structures
Change the Offline-Folder-Scraping to only scraping the Movie-Folder-Roots (not Subfolders of Moviefolders)
Publish the Source-code so i can try to fix it myself study

Would really like to use MC with my current collection Smile

cheers

I'm not sure why you would want so many versions of the same movie,

On the other hand, I noticed an issue with offline movies that results in a recursive folder problem when the .actors folder is used.

eg, on first scrape
c:\Movies\The Matrix
creates the files
c:\Movies\The Matrix\The Matrix.avi
c:\Movies\The Matrix\The Matrix.nfo
c:\Movies\The Matrix\The Matrix.tbn
c:\Movies\The Matrix\The Matrix-fanart.jpg
and
c:\Movies\The Matrix\.actors\actorthumbs.jpg

The next search for new movies, identifies '.actors' as a movie and creates the files
c:\Movies\The Matrix\.actors\.actors.avi
c:\Movies\The Matrix\.actors\.actors.nfo
c:\Movies\The Matrix\.actors\.actors.tbn
c:\Movies\The Matrix\.actors\.actors-fanart.jpg
and the next
c:\Movies\The Matrix\.actors\.actors\.actors.avi
c:\Movies\The Matrix\.actors\.actors\.actors.nfo
c:\Movies\The Matrix\.actors\.actors\.actors.tbn
c:\Movies\The Matrix\.actors\.actors\.actors-fanart.jpg

and so on, with each new scrape going down another level.

It seems to me that the most simple solution to this problem would be to make the offline movie search none recursive, and it would have the effect that you could add your movies as offline.

The different Versions are for different devices [DVD-Player,Media-Harddisk,XBox360,PSP,IPod] you get the idea Wink
