Multiple drives under "one" sharing folder aka linked?

Post by wazer » Thu Jan 04, 2018 2:33 pm

So as of right now, if you have multiple hard drives and want to have lets say "Movies" category section only shown once on DLNA network it will not be possible you will have to add the the drives like in this example.

Which lead for 2 Movies DLNA folders.


Lets get Sharing one DLNA folder with multiple drives?

I know Plex has it but has awful DNLA support, tho their client works the same where it works good.

Could not you do that with a symbolic link on your media server or perhaps a library.

We actually have this feature but it's not in the GUI, it would be cool to have it in the GUI though.
In the meantime check out our virtual_folders setting at https://github.com/UniversalMediaServer ... conf#L1171

Thanks worked, yeah please get built into gui for 7.0 release.

One note tho, I had to share "something" i could not only use the virtual folders.

If I choose not to share anything, it would share "any"

Not an average guy thing to fix. :)
