Custom Collections Library

Post by AbedlaPaille » 27 May 2020, 11:13

You know the Collections page in Plex? Some people tune it with custom collections for an easier access to their media. I did something similar here. The scheme uses 7 top level folder thematics (so far!) and checks for a match in that order :
  • Studios
    • Marvel
    • Pixar
    • Ghibli
  • Collections (If more than 1 item)
  • Directors
    • Alfred Hitchcock
    • Joel Coen
    • Terry Gilliam|Terry Jones|Charles Crichton
    • Quentin Tarantino
    • Quentin Dupieux
    • Stanley Kubrick
    • Mel Brooks
    • Martin Scorsese
    • Wes Anderson
    • Woody Allen
    • Michael Moore
    • Clint Eastwood
    • Gregg Araki
    • Akira Kurosawa
  • Older Movies (Before 1965)
  • French Movies
  • Foreign Movies (neither French nor English)
  • Genre, Custom order
I used a year prefix to sort Directors and Studios Collections by release date and a collection index prefix for Normal Collections.
E:/Films Custom/Directors/Hitchcock Collection/1960. Psycho/Psycho (1960) [BluRay 720p AVC 1.1 Mbps]
E:/Films Custom/Studios/Pixar Collection/2004. The Incredibles/The Incredibles (2004) [360p XviD 0.9 Mbps]
E:/Films Custom/Studios/MCU Collection/2018. Avengers - Infinity War/Avengers - Infinity War (2018) [BluRay 1080p 5.1 HEVC 10bit 2.2 Mbps]
E:/Films Custom/Collections/Mad Max Collection/1. Mad Max (1979)/Mad Max (1979) [480p XviD 2.2 Mbps]
Foreign Movies get a Language subfolder, primary title displayed in the tail
E:/Films Custom/Foreign Movies/German/The Wave (2008)/The Wave (2008) (Die Welle) [480p XviD 0.9 Mbps]
E:/Films Custom/Foreign Movies/Italian/Cinema Paradiso (1988)/Cinema Paradiso (1988) (Nuovo Cinema Paradiso) [480p AVC 1.2 Mbps]
Remaining movies get sorted by genre according to this order

Code: Select all

{def order = ['Animation': 1, 'Musical': 2, 'Documentary': 3, 'Family': 4, 'History': 5, 'Science Fiction': 6, 'Horror': 7, 'Fantasy': 8, 'War': 9, 'Western': 10, 'Action': 11, 'Comedy': 12, 'Crime': 13, 'Thriller': 14, 'Adventure': 15, 'Mystery': 16, 'Romance': 17, 'Drama': 18]
E:/Films Custom/Genres/Action/Sin City (2005)/Sin City (2005) [480p XviD 0.9 Mbps]
E:/Films Custom/Genres/Animation/Shrek (2001)/Shrek (2001) [360p DivX 1.1 Mbps]
Support for multiple same language subtitles
E:/Films Custom/Collections/The Dark Knight Collection/3. The Dark Knight Rises (2012)/The Dark Knight Rises (2012) [480p AVC 0.9 Mbps].fr (2)
E:/Films Custom/Collections/The Dark Knight Collection/3. The Dark Knight Rises (2012)/The Dark Knight Rises (2012) [480p AVC 0.9 Mbps].fr (1)
And a few other interesting things, i'll let you find out if you're curious ! If you want something a bit different i can help you. A million thanks to Rednoah. And Kim. I'm not sure my scheme is the best for computing power management though, can be a bit slow on an older machine. Maybe rednoah can point out bad resource usage :D

Did my best to make the code reader friendly. Hope it helps some neophyte passing by. Have a good day guys
