Is it possible to share TV Show and Movie path?
#1
I'm currently exploring using Kodi in LibreELEC as a front end replacement for my MythTV client.

Over the years, I've accumulated a bunch of TV shows and Movies, all under the same directory. MythTV doesn't really distinguish between Movies and TV Shows. KODI seems to be quite picky about it.

I've tried creating multiple video sources with different names, but the same NFS path. If I set one of the sources up as a TV source and the other one as Movie, KODI merrily removes the entries for the other when I'm setting up one.

The only discussion I've found on this says they must be in different sub-directories. I'm hoping to find a different answer somehow.

Will I have to completely re-arrange my directory structure just to allow KODI to find both my Movies and TV Shows? I can always just browse through the file structure, but that seems to defeat at least part of the purpose of KODI.

Kodi has no AI to know which video files are movies or tv episodes. So movies, music videos and tvshows will each require their own root folder for the content type setting.

Oh, that's too bad that a source can't be duplicated. Thank you for letting me know.
