ember and BDMV folder structure
#1
hi,
upon rescanning the hard drives ember does not find the poster,fanart and info files that are already either in the movie/BDMV/STREAM folder or
in the movie folder (I copied them from STREAM folder after scraping the movie).I renamed the index.* files to movie name.

If I keep the files with the "index" filename there is no problem, but in this way the BDMV folder structure is altered, since it has the poster,fanart and info files.

Question : The only way is to have the poster,fanart and info files in the movie/BDMV/STREAM folder with the name index as the filename?

XBMC standard (DB export) is:

Avatar
-------> poster.jpg
-------> fanart.jpg

-------> BDMV
-------> -------> index.bdmv
-------> -------> index.nfo
-------> -------> index-trailer.avi

-------> -------> .actors
-------> -------> ------->name_lastname.jpg

-------> -------> extrathumbs
-------> -------> -------> thumb1.jpg
-------> -------> -------> thumb2.jpg

-------> -------> STREAM
-------> -------> -------> 00000.m2ts


But you can also drop a movie.nfo at the same location like poster and fanart, but this isn't supportet by Ember atm (will be with next beta release of 1.4.x).

For now, in order ember to present the info I keep the information like this

-------> Avatar.jpg
-------> Avatar.fanart.jpg
-------> Avatar.nfo

-------> BDMV

-------> -------> ------->

-------> -------> STREAM
-------> -------> -------> index.jpg
-------> -------> -------> index.fanart.jpg
-------> -------> -------> index.nfo

I used ember in order to prepare the posters, etc. and xbmc reads them from the folders instead of getting the information from the internet databases due to the fact that when I rescan the library to be updated with new movie entries, some movies are appeared two, three or even more times.

Like Dan said, he is working on upcoming new BETA Release and then you can manage your current setup with new version. By the way my structure is nearly the same as yours, I have my images and nfo in the Parent folder of VIDEO/BDMV Smile
