Expand The Media Tree

Post by Stigg » Tue Jan 22, 2019 12:42 am

I see that you can expand the Media Tree for Music, Years and Location, but I cannot see how to expand the Media Tree for other nodes such as Albums, Artist, Album Artist, Genres, Composers etc. How do I enable the expansion of these and others?

MM5 has replaced those sub-nodes with other access methods
But the old way is still available via an add-on, which comes shipped with MM5 I think

Search the forum for "showAllNodes"

I thought that I would miss them, but have tried MM5 without them, and have found that I don't.

eg. Composers ... click on the Composer node under something like Music or EntireLibrary ... you get a home page for Composers

You can browse them, or type something like 'bra', and you get filtered to Brahms, click on him, and see all album which contain his work ... click on an album, and you can see his tracks

Thanks Barry.

But I do like to scroll down the Media Tree. Especially for Artist, Album Artist and Album.

So just install the addon, go to Tools > Extensions > Add
and select MM5 install folder/sampleScripts/showAllNodes.mmip
