I have some dvds ripped to iso format and I put them in /home/public/data/videos/Movies/

I had to create the Movies part, but they showed up in my video cube.  However, they are not tagged as movies, so I can't filter out just them.  I've tried each entry under "type", and they only appear when I select all.  Any help?

Solved

1.) went to web admin page
2.) Files and media (on top bar), then media files sync
3.) On the left, selected videos, then movies.  (Looks like any folder in the /home/public/videos/ folder will appear here.  Good to know )
4.) Here, all the media in my folder is listed.  Clicked on link to iso file
5.) Selected "Movies" for the media subtype and "DVD" for the file format
6.) Push update at bottom of page and repeat as needed!

That's it.  Didn't need to regen or reload router.

That is also where you add your attributes from - it is one of the most important sections of the web admin for media. You can also do an Amazon search and pull down cover art and attributes from their database (Director, Actors, Genre, etc)
