Multiple Media Dirs

Post by xdreamer » Thu Feb 24, 2005 10:51 pm

Thanks for this very nice application.
At the moment I'm missing one feature:
Due to hard disk limitations my media library is distributed over multiple disks and machines, so it would be nice to have the possibility to define multiple sources.

Using NTFS HardLinks is not practicable due to your naming constraints.

It is possible, because netjukebox only uses the last and second last directory.
Last directory for album and year, and second last for artist.

So you can use it this way:

config.inc.php

Code: Select all

$cfg['media_dir']                  = 'D:/Media';
Directory stucture

Code: Select all

D:\Media\first_harddisk\artist 01\album\...
                       \artist 02\album\...
                       \...
                       \artist 25\album\...
D:\Media\ntfs_hardlink\artist 26\album\...

It would be a nice feature to see the latest updates of your media folder on the brows window. Or make them browseable via an additional search field.

This is already possible with menu: Favorites > New

hardlinks for grouping the music collection

Post by emcquaid » Wed Nov 09, 2005 8:50 pm

So could you use hardlinks to group a collection into "themes"?

I have NJB setup up to randomly add a song to the playlist whenever it goes empty, and thus keep it playing. The unfortunate eventuality is that AC/DC will play at a time when you were perhaps hoping for something more, uh, relaxing...

It would be too cool if I could setup up:
1) Anything Goes(whole collection)
2) Live music only
3) Dance Music
4) Easy Listening (Mom and Dad are here)
etc...

So could I create multiple hardlinked directories containing the hardlinked albums for the theme, and then have separate NJB installs for each theme?

Thanks in advance,

Eric

                       \artist 25\album\...
D:\Media\ntfs_hardlink\artist 26\album\...
may i know, where can i modify the directory stucture?

Thanks
