Can I "hide" a folder?
#1
Question 
My iTunes library has a few folders that I don't want to see when I browse all of my music, for example, there is an "Album Art" folder that I dont want to see. Is there a way to hide folders?

not that I know of, but you can use the music library and none of that stuff will show up.
Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search and search the forum before posting.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please read how to submit a proper bug report.

OK I'll try that. It will probably take forever to scan in 6000 tunes ti library.

Can it do this because its using tags instead of file structures?

To scan my 15,000 or so mp3's that have imbedded cover art, takes about 15 minutes.

I read this but it seems to apply to Library process. I'm not using that yet. Do you think it should apply to simple file listing too?

I want to hide a folder - not display it. Is that a possibility?

I have tried to hide a tv show using the advancedsettings.xml file, but it does not work how I wanted.

Here is my file...

Code:
~/.kodi/userdata/profiles/Tracey/advancedsettings.xml

Here is the code...

Code:
<advancedsettings>
  <video>
    <excludefromlisting>
      <regexp>American Horror Story</regexp>
    </excludefromlisting>
    <excludefromscan>
      <regexp>American Horror Story</regexp>
    </excludefromscan>
    <excludetvshowsfromscan>
      <regexp>American Horror Story</regexp>
    </excludetvshowsfromscan>
  </video>
</advancedsettings>

...but that tv show still shows up on the TV SHOWS screen.

Can anyone help?

debug_log (wiki) would be helpful.

As far as I understand "excludfromlisting" is related to the file view and not the library view:

Quote:<video>
<excludefromlisting> <!-- Regular expressions that if evaluated to true won't be displayed in Files View -->
<regexp>[-\._ ](sample|trailer)[-\._ ]</regexp>
</excludefromlisting>
</video>

The problem with the others might be, if they are already scanned into the library, they won't be removed with this settings. So you have to remove them manually and then try to re-add them to confirm they aren't scanned anymore.

There is also an "exclude path from scan"-option while you setup your source. See Nr. 6 and nr. 7 here:
