Ok let me throw a few warnings out here, as I finally have had my first response. This method is amazing once you have it setup and working correctly though. I'm looking for feedback and errors so I can see what options cause problems. I have noticed that if I followed my naming structure through all the videos, keeping the main menu entry name the same, example: movie browser and entering in and sorting all options like I suggested just makes this easier to accomplish. I can run through my entire sequence 3,4 and this video and get this working perfectly everytime with my exact option choices and naming structure. Let me know if you run into problems I will try to help and if we can see what is causing this I will add support info here for others.
*Known glitches by using this idea* -
If your using the EHS and this method you will see a duplicate of each item entry on the recently added section. This is caused by media browser reading the .VF files in each of your subfolders as another collection. I have tried shortcuts all pointing to the same .VF and it still does it. I have no answer to this except maybe we could request a option in the config tool to add a feature like this folder setup?? Not sure if thats possible, so if you use the EHS you may not like this, but I rather have the sorting options without menus to enter so I use my setup.
Also when your in Diamond, and looking at movie details page, you can scroll over to the genre choices, if you click this it reads all the .VF files and you will end up with multiple entries. The amount of duplicates for either of these glitches is based on how many sorting option folders you have with .VF files, I have 6 in my movie browser, so I get 6 duplicates of everything. Once again I have a Genre area though once I enter my Movie Browser, so this is no concern to me. *** Update 12/4/09 ***Heres a few snapshots of the glitches
As you can see here, I have the same episode for family guy listed 4 times, due to the fact that my TV Browser folder contains 4 .VF files in folders. The Polar Express shot shows 4, but if I scroll right I would have 2 more for a total of 6, once again because I have 6 .VF files in folders. If you are using the EHS screen you may not want to use my movie browser tutorial.
Thanks to feedback from epayne 11, I know you will need to make sure "Auto Enter Single Folder Items" is checked on in media browser. Also he brought up the breadcrumbs and how the leave a trail of your folder structure, how I have missed understanding what this meant up to this point is beyond me. If you take the time to name your VF's nicely inside of each of your sorting folders you should end up with a nice folder tree in the white text across the top of the screen. I have mine set to 4 on breadcrumbs, and as you can see it gives a beautiful description across the top of where I am at now.
Here is an image of how I redid my VF's and the screenshots of how it messes up the EHS if you use this idea.
Are you still interested, well then here is your next project.
Make sure you have "Auto Enter Single Folder Items" checked in media browser.
Want to organize your media so your main menu entry for movies and tv shows leads to another menu with all your sorting options as clickable icons. Watch this video.http://megaswf.com/view/fba14e0793d2b96 ... 0a075.html
