Feature request: MythVideo to ignore directories when using Menu -> Scan for Changes

Reported by: will.marler@… Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - Video Library Version: Unspecified
Severity: medium Keywords: ignore
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Current functionality is for files of particular types as defined by extensions (eg .avi, .mov, .mp4, .mkv) to be hidden from Myth-Video view. If a folder contains only files of those types, then the whole folder is hidden from view. In certain cases it would be desirable for entire folders to be hidden, even though they contain media of types that are allowed to be shown.

Example: a directory named "Show" contains a .mov file and a subdirectory labeled "Sample". The subdirectory "Sample" contains a .mp4 file. MythTV is configured to hide .mov files, but to show .mp4 files. In this example, MythTV will display "Show", with its subdirectory "Sample" and its .mp4 file, but not the .mov file. If "Sample" did not exist, or could be hidden from view (this latter being the feature I'm proposing), then "Show" would also be hidden from view.

This can be accomplished by telling MythVideo? that if a folder contains a file named ".novideodata" or similar, to not display that folder. Alternately, users can define a list of folders to never be displayed (like "Sample," "Archive" etc).
