Custom Folder Tree

May 19, 2015 at 4:04 PM
Would it be possible to define a tree structure that media companion sticks to when managing media?


  • Metadata\Actors
  • Metadata\Movie Sets
  • A
  • A\Aladdin (1992)
  • B
  • C
  • Movie Sets
  • Movie Sets\Back to the Future Collection

If you mean the Metadata folder containing the nfo, artwork etc, then no.

Xbmc/Kodi requires the metadata be with the media file.

No No, the artwork and nfo can be with the movie that's perfect... those other folders are for the local actors cache and the new movie set central folder

Yes that can be done, but i would suggest moving the metadata folder out of the root movie folder.

Or, you could set mc to exclude Metadata folder from being scanned.

For setting a local actors folder, look at Movie Preferences -》Advanced tab.
remember to set a path for xbmc to scrape these actor images.

As for Movie Set common folder, Movie Preferences -》 Artwork tab

Hmmm, yes, that's true...

Keep the metadata folders separate!
