UpdateMedia folder structure
« on: September 25, 2008, 02:56:21 pm »

Hi. First, sorry i´m a english and mce noob  ??? ...

...but i have an important quastion:

Is it possible to adopt the folder an file structure form Debian, KDE, what ever
to the AudioOrbiter (like the PicturesOrbiter)? No ideTags, no playlists, it sucks!
I have already killed the UpdateMediaDeamon.
Is there a configfile for UpdateMedia? What must i do?

Dude, why the hell are you taking apart the system? There is no need to. Why don't you ACTUALLY use the system as it is intended?! All the features you're asking for, are already there.

1. Searching on this topic will shed more light than a kinda clear question / demand.

2. Try actually tagging your music properly. Chances are, its missing proper .id3 information and thats why you dont see anything.

3. There is also a folder view, but it sounds like you started taking it apart before you knew what it could do.

So in conclusion
Search for your issue 1st, its more than likely been covered.
Tag you media -i recommend mp3tag (google it)
learn all the ways to filter media in the orbiter and learn to use the webadmin.

Those people who tell you not to take chances, they are all missing what life's all about.
