Video File Listing?

How does Sage determine where to list video files?

When I convert blu-rays to MKV, the videos will show up under video | Titles but I wan them to show up under Video | DVD like all my other unconverted Blu-rays do.

Also when I take a TV recording and convert it and put it back in the same directory it won't show up with the other TV shows. It is in the same video | Titles directory. How can I make it show with all the other shows.

I do have BMT installed if I need to use that .

I use the metadata tools web interface to do that. From there you can tell it whether it's a sage recording (shows up with sage's recordings) or no -- shows up with external videos. You have to do it video-by-video.

It's based on the format. DVD's have a folder structure and store the videos in a bunch of *.VOB files. There are programs (such as DVDShrink)that will strip the encryption but leave the files in this same format. If you use that method to rip your DVD's, Sage will show them in the "DVD" section.

Blu-ray's are similar (they have their own special file and folder format). Again, there are some programs that can remove the encryption, but leave the folder structure intact (MakeMKV gives you a choice of keeping the folder structure, or putting everything into a single *.MKV file). If you leave the folder structure intact, Sage recognizes it as a Blu-ray.

Sage lumps everything else (basically anything that stores the whole movie as a single file: *.AVI, *.MKV, *.MP4, *.MPG, etc.) together as a "Video".
