OK so I added Videos to Home, deleted everything else, opened Videos and added each share to Home. So I get Media Lib:Folder View with same content as before, but without option to display as a list so I only see half of the share names. It saves me one press of OK.
As far as I can tell, ML is still the only way to aggregate multiple shares into one view.
My ML has always just been the share root folders, but if I wanted subfolders in the aggregate view, the ability to add links to Home seems like a definite improvement vs. having to add them to ML.
Hopefully there are other useful features I'm still overlooking...
Who knew "flammable" and "inflammable" mean the same thing???
