Movie Media Library

Hope someone can help with this.

In the default player, local media, there is an audio and video folder(I will call them)any audio shows up in audio and any video shows up in video. I have the program currently searching my video drive, and only my music video folders. I want to include my movie folder, but I do not want them all bunched into the video folder. I there a way to make another video related folder for movies, that will only show the movies?

Do I have to bunch them all into one folder and make play lists?

Or is it possible to have a second video folder for just my movie files that will not include the movies?

I have a mix of avi, mpg, mkv, mov and such.

Thanks for any help I can get.

1. Add the movie folder to the media library
2. In the ML tree, right-click the current "Video" view, and select "Edit view"
3. Under: Is video | Equals | 1, click the + button
4. put a checkmark in "and"
5. In the new fields underneath, select:
Filename | Begins with | X:\Path\to\music videos
(if there's any more folders with music videos in, then repeat 3-5, but checkmark "or" instead)
6. Change the "Name" at the bottom to e.g. Music Videos
7. Click OK
8. Back in the ML tree, right-click "Local Media" and select "Add smart view"
9. Select "Video" for "Choose a Preset"
10. Repeat 3-5, except type in the path to the Movie Videos folder instead
11. Set up the filters to taste (probably best to checkmark "Simple")
12. Change "Name" to e.g. Movies
13. Click OK
