media browser hell
« on: February 26, 2008, 04:11:09 am »
Ok, here goes...

I ripped a few new DVDs to the core as private. The DVD's showed up on all orbiters as if they were public. Since my kids have access to everything in public, and the DVDs weren't kid friendly, this was unacceptable.
Long story short I could not get the movies off of the list of public media, so I deleted them directly off of the core drive. But they are still listed with the rest of the media.
So I go into the web admin , and try to syncronize...

Welll, now I still have the problem that the movies s how up on the public list of media (keep in mind that the media is completely deleted from the core), and also now I have what appears to be everything from /home in my public media list (down to the LMCE chick setup video clips)

In short -- my datagrid displays while browsing media are an absolute mess.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?

Under "Media Files Sync" you can also tick "Show files who are missing from disk" and use the "delete from database" button.
