I have a storage box that consists of four HDDs. I have my various media spread across the drives, photos, for example is on one drive and it contains a list of folders broken down by month named like so:


etc..etc.. so everything is displayed by name in the correct order. Music folder

contains each album in alpha, this is displayed neatly by thumbnail and looks great too.

video, however is a different story.
I have broken video down into various folders on the root of the drives, shared out individually. I have:


and some of these categories are broken down further, for example Horror contains these sub folders:

Asian etc...etc.. and each folder has a pic assigned to them.

Getting XBMC to display everythign just the way I want it is proving difficult. If I go in one 'view' for Video then it displays all my shared folders, meaning 'Pictures' and 'ISO' are in the list. Also I have not found a way of making whatever folder's preferred view the default view. For pictures and Music they always display the way I want but going into Video option is a hit and miss afair.
I used to use the Project Mayhem II skin but ditched that in favour of the new MC360 skin which looks great, but I would love to have more control on how various media sections are displayed.

So is it possible for me to go from Video >> to a display of each seperate video type, IE the list above:- Horror, Classics, Movies, MusicVids,Television, in thumbnail view for each section ( displaying whatever pics I assign to each folder) and then from there selecting which type of movie section I want to advance to ?

So how do you guys organize your media ?
