Win How to hide/exclude the @eadir folders
#1
Hi Guys

As the subject says how do I hide the @eadir folders which my NAS is producing?

I have found this guide which hasn't helped me.

I go to the source which I suppose to %appdata%\XBMC\userdata\ and create the xml file called : advancedsettings.xml where I then paste the text in.

What am I doing wrong here? Should I rescan the folders again?
Is there a set up in XBMC I'm missing?

Hope you can help, thx in advance.

Remember that unix systems are case sensitive.
You must exclude, both from scan and from listing, @eadir, @eaDir, and @EADIR.

Simple create a file called advancedsettings.xml at userdata folder, with the following content:

Code:
<advancedsettings>
  <video>
    <excludefromscan>
      <regexp>\@eaDir</regexp>
      <regexp>\@eadir</regexp>
      <regexp>\@EADIR</regexp>
      <regexp>\#recycle</regexp>
      <regexp>-trailer</regexp>
      <regexp>[!-._ \\/]sample[-._ \\/]</regexp>
    </excludefromscan>
    <excludefromlisting>
      <regexp>\@eaDir</regexp>
      <regexp>\@eadir</regexp>
      <regexp>\@EADIR</regexp>
      <regexp>\.DS_Store</regexp>
      <regexp>-trailer</regexp>
      <regexp>[!-._ \\/]sample[-._ \\/]</regexp>
      <regexp>\#recycle</regexp>
    </excludefromlisting>
  </video>
</advancedsettings>

Some of those options are blocked by default, but I did repeat it anyway...

Cheers.

Maybe you also want to add <excludetvshowsfromscan> to the video section

If your NAS is a Synology, try this http://mikebeach.org/2012/12/12/disable-...ology-nas/

Tried to force my android device from listing and scanning @eadir and #recycle folders by adding this to my advancedsettings.xml.
Just changed <video> and </video> to <music> and </music> doesn't seem to work, as I still see these folders after scanning my music library again. Does it have to say <musiclibrary> or just <music>?

Btw: I browse my music library by just by folder view as I don't like it another way. Does this setting even have any effect if it is done right or does it only work for the "real" music library that is set by kodi?

Personally, I use:

Code:
<video>
    <excludefromscan>
        <regexp>\@eaDir</regexp>
        <regexp>\@eadir</regexp>
        <regexp>\@EADIR</regexp>
        <regexp>\.DS_Store</regexp>
        <regexp>\#recycle</regexp>
        <regexp>-trailer</regexp>
        <regexp>[!-._ \\/]sample[-._ \\/]</regexp>
    </excludefromscan>
    <excludefromlisting>
        <regexp>\@eaDir</regexp>
        <regexp>\@eadir</regexp>
        <regexp>\@EADIR</regexp>
        <regexp>\.DS_Store</regexp>
        <regexp>\#recycle</regexp>
        <regexp>-trailer</regexp>
        <regexp>[!-._ \\/]sample[-._ \\/]</regexp>
    </excludefromlisting>
    <excludetvshowsfromscan>
        <regexp>\@eaDir</regexp>
        <regexp>\@eadir</regexp>
        <regexp>\@EADIR</regexp>
        <regexp>\.DS_Store</regexp>
        <regexp>\#recycle</regexp>
        <regexp>-trailer</regexp>
        <regexp>[!-._ \\/]sample[-._ \\/]</regexp>
    </excludetvshowsfromscan>
</video>

Jemus, sounds like you need to use <audio>, not <music>.

See: http://kodi.wiki/view/Advancedsettings.x...defromscan

Using the tips from this post helped me exclude them from Music & Photo libraries as well. Here's my working ~/.kodi/userdata/advancedsettings.xml (you may have to create this file - it doesn't exist by default):

Code:
<advancedsettings>
  <video>
    <excludefromscan>
      <regexp>\@eaDir</regexp>
      <regexp>\@eadir</regexp>
      <regexp>\@EADIR</regexp>
      <regexp>\#recycle</regexp>
    </excludefromscan>
    <excludefromlisting>
      <regexp>\@eaDir</regexp>
      <regexp>\@eadir</regexp>
      <regexp>\@EADIR</regexp>
      <regexp>\.DS_Store</regexp>
      <regexp>\#recycle</regexp>
    </excludefromlisting>
  </video>
  <audio>
    <excludefromscan>
      <regexp>\@eaDir</regexp>
      <regexp>\@eadir</regexp>
      <regexp>\@EADIR</regexp>
      <regexp>\#recycle</regexp>
    </excludefromscan>
    <excludefromlisting>
      <regexp>\@eaDir</regexp>
      <regexp>\@eadir</regexp>
      <regexp>\@EADIR</regexp>
      <regexp>\.DS_Store</regexp>
      <regexp>\#recycle</regexp>
    </excludefromlisting>
  </audio>
  <pictureexcludes>
    <regexp>\@eaDir</regexp>
    <regexp>\@eadir</regexp>
    <regexp>\@EADIR</regexp>
    <regexp>\.DS_Store</regexp>
    <regexp>\#recycle</regexp>
  </pictureexcludes>
</advancedsettings>
