    Possibility to assign certain music folders to dedicated player?

    Dear all,

    I want to set up my SBT in my daughter┤s room.

    Question is now if there is a possibility that the SBT is only pointed to the folder on my NAS where my daughter┤s music is located?

    I organized the folders on my NAS like this:

    - Volume1
    --Music
    ---Flac
    ----Artists
    -----Album
    ------Songs

    ---MP3
    ----Artists
    -----Album
    ------Songs

    ---DSD
    ----Artists
    -----Album
    ------Songs

    ---Kiddo
    ----MP3
    -----Artists
    ------Album
    -------Songs
    ----FLAC
    -----Artists
    ------Album
    -------Songs

    In LMS under the "Basic Settings" I mentioned "/Volume1/Music in the corresponding Media Folders field (hence my Pi2 running pCP can play all stored music).

    Now I┤m not sure if I can point the SBT solely to the folder /Volume1/Music/Kiddo. Is there any chance to do that?

    Thanks in advance.
    Cheers,
    Markus

    That's the exact use case for the Library Views plugin in 7.9. Create
    views on your overall collection. I do have a "Kids" menu with only
    music tagged for kids. Please see the various threads on the topic.
