I know that you can mark the contents of a folder as watched by bringing up the context menu for it and selecting
Mark as watched, but is there any way to mark the folder itself as watched so that the checkmark will appear beside it?
There seems to be a way to do it (full disclosure: I haven't verified it, yet).
.nfo files to track playcount and other statistics (as well as to display thumbnails, descriptions aso.). It also has a mechanism to easily migrate your play settings (from another machine).
As described here, there is a way to import an "exported" library (containing also the watched state). So, you could do this:
- export your library
- manually/programmatically mark desired (folder) entries as watched
import the library
NB: you have to change the XBMC setting
importwatchedstate(in advancedsettings.xml) to
Solution 2 (easier!)
But, I believe it's even easier to do it directly with
.nfo file. Here's a hack which (I believe) could work:
create an empty
tvshow.nfofile in the folder you wish to mark as watched
The filename of the NFO should be tvshow.nfo (Exact, NOT the name of the actual TV show) and it should be in the root folder of the TV show.
add this data to the file (most importantly, the
(Also, you could try removing the
lastplayedsetting as it could be redundant.)
Let me know if it works! :)
