excludefromlisting for Music?
#1
Hello,

I know I can remove file extensions from the library scan using the advancedsettings.xml, abd it seems to work fine, but can I remove certain file extensions from the fodler view? In the video options there ist excludefromlisting to do this if I understand it correctly, but there seems to be no such option for music?
While I use the library for my RockPop collection I prefer to exclude jazz, classical music and audiobooks. It would just clutter up the listings, and most of the time I find unsing the folder view more intuitively anyway. In these folders I tend to have stuff that I want to keep but generally don't listen to (or duplicates in various qualities) zipped in archives. Is it somehow possible to exclude these archives from the folder view?

Thanks,
vonson

I'm not 100% sure but for music I think you use the audio variants see https://kodi.wiki/view/Advancedsettings.xml#audio

Thank you, that is kind of weird, I never noticed that it is icluded here in the audie section. Further above, where the options are explained, it is only mentioned under video, so i assumed it would not work for audio. Kind of stupid... I'l try it immediately.
Something else I noticed - in the video section it is mentioned under library settings...?... But as far as I understand it it should not affect the library but the files view...?...
However, I'll do some experimentation.

Thank you so much, it does work. I feel pretty stupid for not simply trying it without asking, sorry for that.

I' afraid I don't understand this. Does this mean I can create a custom view mode?
