Anyone know how to add a folder to the VLC media library so that the music contents are updated in it whenever the folder is updated? I've seen "Add Folder" options for other versions, but nothing on 2.0.5, the latest build.
** This is MAC specific - using VLC 2.1.4 **
I've found the way to add folders to VLC for Mac is somewhat convoluted.
I didn't want something that links to a real folder, just a virtual folder to put streams under, but as the OP stated, couldn't find an "Add Folder" option (as I have on my windows version).
Instead, what I do is:
The folder remains in VLC as required, and if you right-click and choose "Media Information..." it will have changed the Location to "vlc://nop" which if fine, and can now be used as holding folder for organising the Media Library into hierarchies.
Open VLC, select Media Library from the sidebar, and drag the folder you want to add into the pane on the right. If 'Media Library' isn't there, enable in Preferences/Show All/Playlist/Use media library. If it's a network folder, it'll have to be mounted or VLC will not add it.
