Hi there,

We generally recommend the following folder structure and settings in Madsonic:

example with path location on a network attached storage:

Code: Select all

\\NAS\media\artists      <-- only sorted artist  
\\NAS\media\collections  <-- multi-artist sampler 
\\NAS\media\series       <-- tv series 
\\NAS\media\videos       <-- tv records
\\NAS\media\movies       <-- movies
\\NAS\media\podcasts     <-- podcasts
\\NAS\media\playlists    <-- playlists
\\NAS\media\soundtracks  <-- soundtracks

Artist folder:

should only contain media files in this format: <ARTIST>/<ALBUM>/<TITLE>.<EXT>

example:

Code: Select all

\\NAS\media\artists\Adele\[2015] 25\01 Adele - Hello.flac


Collection folder:

should only contain media files in this format: <SET>/<ALBUM>/<TITLE>.<EXT>

example:

Code: Select all

\\NAS\media\collections\Best of\Best of Pop\Ivy Quainoo - Glass Houses.mp3
or

Code: Select all

\\NAS\media\collections\Chillout\Smooth Jazz - The Best Of [2004]\CD1\01 - Us3 - Canteloop.mp3
or

Code: Select all

\\NAS\media\collections\Bravo Hits\Bravo Hits 01\Disk1\01 - The Klf - America What Time Is Love.mp3

Code: Select all

\\NAS\media\collections\Sampler\[2004] Nova Tunes 10\02 Jehro - Everything.mp3
Soundtrack folder:

should only contain media files in this format: <SET>/<ALBUM>/<TITLE>.<EXT>

example:

Code: Select all

‪\\NAS\media\soundtracks\Soundtrack - Movies\Django Unchained [2012]\02. Django.mp3
TIP: to force Madsonic detect the soundtrack folder as multiartist create a empy file in this location:

Code: Select all

‪\\NAS\media\soundtracks\Soundtrack - Movies\MULTI.TAG

All possibilities of the filetag to override:

Code: Select all

multi.tag
artist.tag
album.tag
set.tag
dir.tag
Madsonic configuration:

Settings > Media Folders

Settings > General
