"View-> Show Art" for Video Collections

Postby cgoyette » Thu Jan 18, 2018 11:06 pm

My preferred configuration for viewing my Audio collections is View -> Show Art. I get one image/thumbnail per album. :)

However, any attempt to view my Video collections this way produces an image/thumbnail for each episode of each series. :( Is this a bug? Is there a work-around or a special setting necessary? I had to settle for View -> Show Art with Details as the next best option. Thank you.

Do you have Series tagged (and sorted on)? Director needs to have the same value for all files in the Series.

Yes, the Series property is identical for all files. Please advise what you mean by "sorted on".

Which column are you sorting on? Also Director (Album Artist) needs to be the same for all files.

It doesn't matter which column I sort on. I tried them all but get the same results. I didn't have anything in the Director property but put something there just to test... didn't matter.

I get the same behavior for my custom collections as well as for the native Video collection. I don't get it. What am I not doing or doing wrong?

One More Time!

I like to present my music albums using "View -> Show Art". I get a series of CD cover images only. When I mouse over them, I get to see the tracks within. Selecting "Play Now" creates a playlist containing the entire album. Perfect! :)

I have many video series, too. I would like to treat them exactly as I treat my music collection. However, with "View -> Show Art", I get art (an image) for each episode in each series. This behavior breaks the paradigm used for music albums. :(

Please... Could anybody confirm this behavior?

Has anybody gotten a video series to render as a single image/object in "View -> Show Art"?

If you have, could you share with me the secret decoder ring?

Pardon my persistence.

Hi,
TV Series and other video collections are under overhaul for MM5 which will for example have more common/expected behavior eg. TV Series Name -> Seasons # -> Episodes or Air date and so on. Same goes about Series or Season Pictures
