I have Plex running on a Synology and I am trying to add Music Videos that I have downloaded. I have followed the instructions from Plex but nothing seems to be happening. I am adding videos as a Global Music Videos Folder. I have specified the Global Folder as follows:

/volume1/video/Music Videos/

Since this method does not associate this folder with a library specifically, how do I know if it is working? Will they just show up when I search for them? If so, my Plex does not seem to be detecting the videos...

  • You need to direct an extra library to that directory so that plex will scan it. So youll probably have "TV Shows", "Movies", "Music Videos". – Linef4ult Jan 25 '16 at 14:32
  • What type of library should it be? – William Jan 25 '16 at 14:40
  • In case anybody comes here from Google, here's the "official guide": support.plex.tv/articles/… – Max Matti Nov 3 '18 at 12:35
  • Hey @MaxMatti - back when I posted this I had tried using that guide but it didn't quite work as well as the guide made it seem like it would - although maybe they have improved it since then - – William Nov 3 '18 at 12:37
