Display Video Subcategory Information
When using the video Grid screen, you can display information for videos in the information box which appears at the bottom of the screen by using individual xml or nfo files. You can also display information about subcategories by using individual xml or nfo files.
Directory Structure Option
For the directory structure option, place the xml or nfo file with the same name as he subfolder in the folder which contains the subfolder. For example, if you have a folder called Documentary, and a subfolder called Life, you could place a file called Life.xml, or Life.nfo in the Documentary folder.
(video root)/Documentary/Life.xml, or (video root)/Documentary/Life.nfo
Life.xml or Life.nfo
XML File Option
If you are using an XML file, you can display information about subcategories using xml or nfo files. The information files should be the same name as the subcategory with a .xml or .nfo extension, and located in the images folder below your video root folder.
You can define xml or nfo files for each subcategory. The information files will correspond to the subcategory structure that you have defined, and will be located in the images folder under your video root folder. If the genre structure is
[Category/Subcategory 1/Subcategory 2...]
then you could have information files at
(video root)/images/Category/Subcategory 1/Subcategory 1.xml, or (video root)/images/Category/Subcategory 1/Subcategory 1.nfo
(video root)/images/Category/Subcategory 1/Subcategory 2/Subcategory 2.xml, or (video root)/images/Category/Subcategory 1/Subcategory 2/Subcategory 2.nfo
For example, if you have a genre defined as
[Documentary/Planet Earth/Life], the informtion files for each subcategory would be in:
(video root)/images/Documentary/Planet Earth/Planet Earth.xml, or (video root)/images/Documentary/Planet Earth/Planet Earth.nfo
Planet Earth.xml or Planet Earth.nfo
(video root)/images/Documentary/Planet Earth/Life/Life.xml, or (video root)/images/Documentary/Planet Earth/Life/Life.nfo
Life.xml or Life.nfo
