Would it be possible to impliment a different directory hierarchy? As of right now you have to select:

[Samsung Root Menu] > Videos > MiniDLNA > Videos > Shows > [Episode]

I think it would make it a bit better to do:

[Samsung Root Menu] > Video > Movies / TV Shows > [Video.mpg]
[Samsung Root Menu] > Pictures > [Photo.jpg]
[Samsung Root Menu] > Music > [Music.mp3]

The idea would be to keep your file organized on the server in there respective folders ie: TV Shows, Movies, Pictures, Music and than also serve that same organization to the media device. The other idea would include making the hierarchy completely customizable.

    As the Samsung can only support 100 pages, is it possible to use the directory structure from the drive?
    Video/Animation - then all the Animation folders under this
    Video/Series - then all the Series folders under this

    At the moment i have all the folders under :
    Videos/Folders

    I would like to have this working for mine. The one issue I have with minidlna is that my movie folder is mixed in with my tv series... This is something that I had differentiated in serviio which I loved.

    Also to change up with the filename with the episode name only so it is nicer to browse through.

    Hi pilothaz

    As i had no reply on this, the only way for me to solve this was to re-look at my server....
    I know that what i have done is NOT the most practical, but i needed to solve it quick.

    I implemented a "Sub-Dir" structure as follow:
    Samsung Root Menu] > Video > 001_Animation - all my Animation
    Samsung Root Menu] > Video > 002_Animé - all my Animé
    Samsung Root Menu] > Video > 003_Series - all my Series
    Samsung Root Menu] > Video > All my video's

    I still have a issue as my video's are mounting.. i am on page 62, so this is only a temporary resolve.

    I can't see Samsung doing anything about this, so i hope that our MiniDLnA developer can implement a more elegant way to overcome the Samsung 101 Page limit.
