LOCATION OF VIDEOS

Recommended Posts

Hello eveyone..

First off... I want to thank everyone for a great program, great support and everything.... I love my setup... I have it in my gameroom and even streaming to my shield portable... Been able to do most just by reading the forums... My question is this.... Can i change the location where it stores the video files that it downloads?.... i have all of my roms on a external drive and i don't plan on adding any more... i have enough space for the images and such, but not the movies... Any suggestions?

 

Thanks,

Matt

You can put videos anywhere you want, but LB won't automatically find them if you aren't keeping them in the default folders.

You could move LB itself to a different drive on the PC that has more space (but you'd have to fix paths for all of your emus, etc.), but if you don't mind manually updating the video paths, you can:

1). Move the videos to where you want them to live

2) In LB, Edit the game, go to the Other tab and in the video field, click the button to navigate to where the video is.

Unfortunately, you can't bulk edit this (unless all your games use the exact same background video), but that is how you can do it. Same goes for music and manual files.

Oh ok... so no easy way... I've probably gotten about 5000 games/systems set up.. so i think i'll just live with it the way it is.... Thanks for the help.

If you want a more bulk approach you can got to manage platforms choose your platform and then go to the folders tab and change the path for all the videos on that platform. To do it for all platforms you will have to repeat the steps.
