Separating Movies/Videos

Post by barong » 19 Nov 2017, 00:13

Hi,

I’ve been testing out Plex with MrMC and have a query about how it organises media within the app.

Currently my plex library has both Movies and home videos as seperate libraries. In MrMC, both these libraries show up as seperate options under the Movies section.

I was wondering if there is a way to only pull in my movie library into the Movies section in MrMC? This would then leave out the home videos and I can view them under media sources or files.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Media sources and files are for smb/nfs shares that create MrMC library, no way to use those on plex.

You could use plex for movies and create media source folder for your videos that would contain home videos

Sorry, I don't think I explained it properly...

I am using Plex under Services and it automatically populates the Movies and TV Shows section for me on the home screen.

TV Shows are working fine.

Under Movies, it is showing my movies as well as 4 other seperate sections for home videos/test videos/calibration videos etc. (there is an initial screen that I have to select the "sub fodler" first before it displays the actual media).
I wan't it to only show movies (as per plex setup) and exclude the other video sections.

I can most likely fix this by deleting / removing the other video sections from Plex.

Hope this makes more sense.

I have a similar feature requests. I currently have three libraries in PMS (Movies-3D, Movies-2D, TV-TV). How it currently works is that Mr`MC shows Movies and `TV on the home screen. When selecting Movies, I get a second screen to choose Movies-3D and Movies-2D.

I'd like instead to have Movies-3D and Movies-2D and TV all three on the homescreen. This would eliminate the interim screen.

I believe this may also address the request of the opening poster?

More complex skins can have custom home shortcuts. WIP once we resolve some issues.

I'd prefer not to see this as being part of the custom home shortcut.

Current implementation for the home screen accesses the media share of PMS rather than the libraries directly. MrMC could access directly the PMS libraries (i.e., Movies-3D is a different library on my PMS from Movies-2D). This is pretty much how the Plex addon (and also the Plex app) works already, but would be great if the native Plex Client implementation would do the same. Any chance?

You are obviously not in a TestFlight :)

Oh great, I am signed up, but haven't been trying. Let me check it out. This reads very promising!
