⚙️ How it works
folderplay scans for known extensions in the current working directory and all subdirectories. It marks the files as
unwatched by checking for a specific prefix in the filename. It also searches for a list of predefined players for current operating systems. If the application can't find one, it will throw a warning and will ask you to select the player. When you hit the play button
folderplay spawns a new process with the selected player, freezes the UI and waits for the process to exit. When the playes process exits
folderplay will rename the media file by prepending a prefix to its filename to mark it as watched.
Prebuilt binaries for macOS and Windows can be downloaded from the GitHub releases page.
:warning: Note that the binaries were not thoroughly tested across different platforms and might not work correctly.
The recommended installation method is using
pip install folderplay
If you're on Linux, you have to additionally install
libmediainfo-dev. For Debian-based systems it's as simple as running
sudo apt-get install libmediainfo-dev
After installation, the
fplay command will be available. Check the command line section for supported commands.
Simply drop the executable into the directory where your media resides and run it. The application will scan all directories and subdirectories for known extensions.
By default the app runs in
basic view mode. You can toggle to the more advanced view by pressing the gear button. From there you can select the video player to use (
folderplay will try to search for existing video players and will warn you on start up if it didn't find one).
You can filter your media list using the search form. The list also has supports context menu with some handy commands.
