How to change a movie from one main playlist to another

Post by crizco-ok » Sat Oct 24, 2015 4:56 pm

Hi Everyone

In itunes under library you have the master categories "Films, Music, etc". If a film is incorrectly imported into music, how can you move it to the correct library?
Itunes itself won't let you and I don't seem to find a way in ihomeserver.
At the moment, the only way is to Reindex the entire folder / library - this can't be right.

I have tried editing the meta data video kind outside of ihomeserver and the watch folder does detect the change, but it is still mot moved.

Anyone any ideas?

Cheers
Christian

Versions: Windows 2012, itunes 12.0.3.44 and ihomeserver 3.1.84

Thanks for the post. This is odd - a video should only appear in the Music folder in iTunes if it has been tagged as a Music Video as opposed to a 'Movie'. If you switch the video kind in iHomeServer from Movie to Video Kind it should move folder in iTunes just fine.

I'm wondering whether you have a rule on your iHomeServer Watch Folder to auto-set the video kind back to Music Video which may be overriding your manual change?

I think this could be me being impatient- next time i fired up my Apple TV The film had moved categories.

So, thanks for the quick response, and a great product.
