Hey

I haven't got around to trying this but I was I wondering if I had 2 hdd's on my smb share, would all content come under 1 library on the media player or would I only be able to view them 2 hdd's separately?

They would be separate.  Shares are viewed exactly the same as their directory structure so two sources would not be merged but would show up separately.  The use of favourites can help but they would again be separate and would not be merged.

That's what I thought. Does anyone know if there are plans for a library view implementation?

We're planning to create a single library view - however this probably won't be ready until after 1.0 is released.

Infuse 6 for iOS and Apple TV is now available!

It's currently under active development, so we should have more info soon.

For now I've included a few mockups that should provide a rough, high-level overview on what we're working on.

Watched status syncing is planned, but probably won't make it into the first library view version.

So the biggest thing I would want to be able to do is to setup something similar to "smart playlists" for my media.
Often we want to find a G-Rated movie for the kids that is under 90 minutes in case there is only so much time to watch and we don't want to deal with trying to pry the kids away from the movie right during the best part because we have to go grocery shopping.  So I might setup a "Smart Playlist" (virtual directories in Sapphire) to find "Rating = G AND duration < 90" and then give it a name like "G-Rated, Under 90 minutes".

 

Since you replied to my other post in the other thread it sounds like you are planning this kind of custom indexing too though I'm not sure I saw it in your mockups.

Any ETA on this feature?  It would be awesome.

Has the library feature been implemented/delivered?  If not, when might it be delivered?  Other posts on this thread have suggested this has been 'in the works' for some time.  This would be a great usability improvement.

Will this new mode also enable sorting TV Shows by… TV Shows? Right now I have a folder filled with different episodes of different seasons, everything is correcly matched but on the list I see only the episode number and name, not the name of the show itself. I am currently using Show File Extensions to be able to tell what I'll be watching.

Or is there a way to show the series name that I'm not aware of?

Yep. Library view will organize TV Shows by series/season.

In the current version the series name will be listed on the left hand side of the screen, but only when using using list view.

Additionally, we have a nice search feature in the works that will fit in nicely with the new Library View.

It's still in the works, and will be part of the upcoming aTV Flash (black) 2.0 release.

We have to wait 3 more versions for it?  ... taps foot...

Oh well.  Guess I still have to suffer through a broken PLEX client.

XBMC is a nightmare.  The FC Media Player is the best option, and smoothest option, for playing data.  However, I have my media spread out over three different drives on my network, and my wife and kid can never find what they want to watch... In my favorites section, I have three movie sections, and 2 tv show sections.  

If I could code, I would code the HELL out of that.

That's awesome.  I can't wait to see this library view.  I can finally shelve PLEX and shelve XBMC.  SYNC is great, but I really only watch media with any consistency on one ATV2.  The other is used for music, mostly.
