I am starting to play around with the Local Content feature of Channels DVR. I have Channels DVR running on the same server as my Plex server so I already have tons of local content on the server. What I basically did was point the Movie Sources to the same folder that Plex uses for Movies and where I keep all of my movies. However, I ran into one problem. There is a bunch of additional content in those folders that I don't want to show up in Channels DVR. For example, a lot of the extra content/features from Blu-Rays. I only want the movies to show up. I have followed the Plex standard folder naming structure as documented here:
Ultimately, I want Channels to ignore content in subfolders called
- Behind The Scenes
- Deleted Scenes
in addition to any folder called Extras (which Plex by default also ignores). Instead of hardcoding what subfolders Channels DVR should ignore, ideally, I can just enter my own rules somewhere of what folders Channels DVR should ignore.
Is anything like this currently possible? If not I will submit a Feature Request.
FYI, if this is not possible, the way I am thinking of working around this is by creating a separate Movies folder that I point Channels DVR to as a Local Content source, and then hardlinking the movies I want to show up in Channels DVR via the ln command. However, this will take quite a bit of work due to the amount of content that I have. If anyone has a better idea or solution, please let me know.
