Videos already seen + visual sign possible ?
« on: May 09, 2018, 11:53:35 am »

Hi,

As Kodi does, is it possible, using the theater view, to have a visual sign (tilt) when the video has already been seen ?
I have hundreds video files and I spend time to find those I never seen yet.

Thanks for helping me.

I think you could set up a view to show unwatched movies.

It takes a bit of elbow grease, but you can definitely build a lot of cool Watched status reporting. Here's an (older) overview of the system I use:
https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,85974.0.html

Some of this is now a bit easier because the built-in Watched() expressions are better than when I built this, though I still use mine as it is more precise.

For bonus points, you can also make a Current Shows view in Theater View, which is how my family watches most shows now every day:

Hope this helps get you started!

Thank you for this help.
I tried it, almost working ...

I have the watched field on the fields info page on theater view, but no on the main view.
I'd like the "sign" here on the video jacket page (main view), just after the title.

Let me explain this with pics.

Tools ==> Options  ==> Theater View == Customize File Info Panel. Choose "Movie" Template from drop down list and beside Templates select  Manage ==> Edit Template
Under Caption:
for regular list box enter:
[Name]Delimit([Watched Percent], , / )

For extended list box:
[Name]
ListBuild(1, / , [Year], [Duration], [MPAA Rating], RatingStars(),[Plays], [Watched Percent])

These are just examples to get you going. Regular tells what it is shown when that row is not selected and Extended is what is shown when the item is selected.

I'm not sure is there template for movies by default or if I have made one. By template you can make different rules how the files are shown to you. I for example have different kind of fields and styles for audio, series, movies etc.

[I use latest JRiver 24 version, 64 bits]

This is exactly what I did for Movie & Video templates but it doesn't work.
I switched back to default theater skin, same thing.
I don't know where the problem is...



On "Select page", it's ok:



On the "films" page, it's ko:

Hmmm.. Perhaps your template priority is "wrong" and you have some "[Media Type]=Video search" above the movie template so it gets selected instead of your movie template. Drop down list acts also as a priority list

It is because you have Style in your Template set to Large Image. That limits the template to only apply to the zoomed-in, single-file view.

Set it to Standard, and you should be fixed up.

Same thing in standard.
But "style" only affects the pages below "Movies home page".
My "Movies home page", the one where all my movie covers are visible, does not display tags except "Name".
I tried with the default MC skin, same here.

I suspect a problem with the regular expression

It works after I had re-install JRiver from scratch (with default views).. Thanks a lot for your help !
Just a last question in theater view for TV shows.

I'd like to have : TV show -->  Season(s) --> episodes

For now I have: TV show --> episodes (sorted by season and episode number in the same "page"

How to do this ?

That's easy. Simply add Series (which you already have) and Season (which you don't) to the Categories used in the View where you'd like that "tier" to appear. Categories are added in the box on the right, under Details.


Note that Theater View automatically omits the "tier" for any Category where all files match. So, after you add [Season], when you open up Series for a particular show in your Library where all of the episodes you have of that show are from the same season, it'll "skip over" that tier, and take you right to the episode listing. But, when you open up a Series for a show where you do have more than one season, it'll show the [Season] Category.

Sorting is controlled by the search you enter under the Set Rules for File Display button. Sounds like you already have that part right, but something like this would be good:


Each View in Theater View can have its own Search, but bear in mind that any filters you add "above" the View (higher up in the View hierarchy) will also apply. So, in my example above, I don't have to filter [Media Type]=[Video] for the Shows view, because that filter is already applied by one of its "parent" Views.
