The autoview option is a great help for getting the right views from the beginning. Although I would hope that it can be changed for Music Folders. It is right that they are shown in the Music View. But would it not be possible to show the folders with the flacs or mp3s in a list form (or in split view)? Would make it easier to find a song.
With autoview switched on you can control the view for each folder individually. When you change the view for a specific folder a file called view.xml is written to the folder, this XML contains the view configuration for each folder. When you access that folder again the view you have selected is retained. This only works if the Mede8er has write access to the folder.
I had exactly the same thought as you about Music, I prefer a list view in the folder containing the actual FLAC's or MP3's. So using autoview my folder views are set up like this...
Music (music view)
---- Artist (music view)
-------- Album (preview view)
To make this easier to set up I configured the view to preview view on one album then from my PC just copied the view.xml to every other album folder on my NAS. This is now something I do each time I add new music to the library, just copy in view.xml and the folder will be in preview view the first time I access it from the Mede8er.
