Description

I have one base directory for video files to show with mythvideo. This is pretty deep /somewhere/in/some/sub/videofolder. With 0.23 Mythvideo used to remember the path to show when entering mythvideo gallery. In 0.25 it always starts up in the root directory and the first thing to see is "somewhere" and I have to dig down to the actual videos. But the only configured directory is videofolder. I don't want to see any super folders.

Then just give MythTV that specific folder, rather than one several levels up from the content you want to access.

Replying to wagnerrp:

This is of course what I did: On the first page in the frontend to configure mythvideo I entered as the only video directory:

/somewhere/in/some/sub/videofolder

But when I enter the mythvideo gallery I always see "somewhere" and have to drill through all the subfolders until I find my videos.

"mythvideo" is now integrated into the frontend, and just the Video Library. Those settings in the frontend are deprecated, and due for removal. Use the "Videos" storage group defined in mythtv-setup to allow the backend to serve the content to all connected frontends.

All paths in the Video Library are stored and displayed relative to the path you defined for the storage group. The only way you would be seeing anything different is if you were running in File Browse Mode (another option planned for removal), or you somehow have the old absolute paths in your database from an old version of MythVideo? and need to rescan your content to refresh those paths. In either case, this is a user configuration issue.
