I have been experimenting with Jellyfin 10.6.1 (And many previous versions) on Windows server 2012 r2 which is a VM. It connects to a NAS through a mapped network drive with read permissions only. My main server is a old and outdated emby server, version 18.104.22.168, which has full read/write permissions and saves nfo and images into media folders.
The big issue I have between these two versions is a mixed content folder which contains many YouTube video’s I’ve saved. The current old version displays this folder perfectly in a folder style view. Jellyfin does the same with a few exceptions. Some folders in this library will be displayed like a tv show would, which makes it look very odd. But, it only occurs on some folders. I can’t determine why it believes it to be a show with seasons but, everything I have tried to make it display in a folder view format as failed.
I have visited the admin dashboard and gone to Libraries->Display and enabled “Display a folder view to show plain media folders”. However, even when using this view, Jellyfin will still display the problematic folders in a TV Show style view.
Right clicking and selecting content type gives me the options “Inherit” and “Shows”, However neither option changes how the folder is displayed.
I know that on my main Emby 22.214.171.124 server which saves nfo files within the media folders, I usually have a tvshow.nfo file I could maybe edit to change the view. But, on Jellyfin which does not save nfo into media files, I do not know where in the server to go to try and change it manually.
Because of this, I wanted to ask the community if they too have had this kind of issue. Is there a way to override this setting and force everything in a library (or even by folder if must be) to be displayed in a folder view only and not a TV Show view with seasons, etc?
Here is an example of what I would like it to look like vs how it is being displayed in a unwanted TV Show format.
Here is how I like the display of this library and 50% of the time Jellyfin does correctly:
Here is how Jellyfin displays the other folders 50% of the time and that I would like to change:
Edit: Nevermind, New users can only post one image in a topic. But, you get the idea. It looks like how a tv show would with a “Season Unknown” season and about 100 videos inside. None of which are labeled like a tv show would be. just random YouTube video names
Would anyone have any suggestions in order to correct this? I also know that Jellyfin provides a “Server Only” install. If anyone has or would have any ideas on how to overlay emby’s 126.96.36.199 Web-Ui ontop of Jellyfin 10.6.1, I would love to know! (Mostly likely impossible but, might as well ask. Don’t hate please.)
