How to organize your JAV collection?

Can anybody recommend a DLNA server compatible with common VR players (Pigasus, Skybox) AND multipart Videos?

Unfortunately these players cannot use the webinterface so they have to work with the DLNA-Structure which is fine by me, but only the first part of every movie is played (Metadata collected with javinizer and the option oneNFOperMovie. In the webinterface the additional parts appear but not in the DLNA mode)

I just use a direct SAMBA connection to my linux fileserver in Pigasus and Skybox. Before that I was using miniDLNA and it worked OK, but the samba connection is more reliable and can be password protected.

please give me the command line of javinizer for sort every movies in my pc and move it to new folder.
i use to know it but i forget it now. the gui work great but i dont like to click to select movies there. its too much

I am using a Samba server on my NAS as well. Unfortunately as my collections is growing its difficult to organize the library just by folders. I would like to have tags/categories so better sort my videos. It is possible with DLNA but none of the DLNA-servers i've tried is supporting multiple parts in the non-webmode.

You find the information here: https://github.com/jvlflame/Javinizer#getting-started

# Run a command to sort your JAV files using default settings
> Javinizer -Path "C:\JAV\Unsorted" -DestinationPath "C:\JAV\Sorted"

So I kind of walked back on myself here. I recently had a fear that my BD50 discs with all my titles would suffer from disc rot at some point so...I used some Amazon points to buy three 2TB WD Blue HDDs to start copying the discs off to. Plus, I have another older 1TB Seagate and some others (2.5 inch) in case I need them. I sure hope one of these drives doesn't fail later...basically proving why I went away from them in the first place.

Anyone have a drive fail recently? If so, did you an "it is what it is" attitude? Or did you try to replace everything?

I recently (one to two months ago) got back like 80 discs that I gave to my friend 5+ years ago. They are all still in perfectly working order. While I like the fact that Blu-rays can hold more, there is also the potential for more files to go bad, so I stick with 4.7 GiB discs. Also the fact that DVD burners/readers are very cheap, versus needing to shell out near 100 dollars for a blu ray burner/reader. IIRC, Disc Rot is almost impossible to prove, and (IIRC) has never been observed to happen. It seems to be a myth (though Im sure it is possible). That is, IIRC. I could be wrong though. I remember reading from a hypothetical journal (they deal in tech hypotheticals/theory), and even if it does exist, it is incredibly rare.

2 week ago my harddisk is dead .its harddisk for porn only.
i create and cutting and move it to koi .
its too much work for rebuild such a big database so i give up .
i no more ...i dont spend my time do hard work again .
if i found something really fun then i start to cutting and building something from it
i dont do it for every movies that i have watched now.
waste time

I've burned over 100 BluRays in the last 5 years. I've had 6 discs (that worked after initial burn, mind you) that did not work upon later access. All 6 of these discs came from the same spindle of DL BluRay discs, so there is some suspicion that I got a bad batch, but no proof either way.

When I say they 'don't work,' I mean to say that some portion of the contents of the disc are unretrievable. In each case I was able to see the entire list of contents, but only able to copy off a small number of the files (less than half in all cases.)

As a result of this, I've sworn off DL discs entirely. I replaced all the other discs in that batch, even though they seemed to be fine. I lost quite a few files, because I downsample everything to 480p in h.265 to lessen space requirements. Luckily, the stuff I drop to BluRay is stuff that, if deleted, wouldn't upset me terribly. I keep all the important stuff on HDD's, and make sure I've got more than 1 copy.

Wow, reading some of the posts makes me feel very grateful for the resources and ability to have a pretty extensive storage and backup infrastructure. I'd like to share how an IT Network/Sys Admin stores/sort of organizes their collection and general data(granted almost 0 JAV, 90% idol, 10% mixed VR). I've been in IT for 15 years, managed several enterprise backup/DR systems, and I treat my home lab/network pretty similarly. I'm a big fan of linux and open source software so I utilize that as much as possible. I also utilize ZFS for all my server file systems! ZFS has the following benefits, checksums with period scrubbing for data integrity (ECC RAM comes into play with this as well), ZFS Snapshots and send/receive for backing up data, on the fly compression with deduplication when doing a ZFS Snapshot. Overall, ZFS is just amazing, and well worth the time/effort to implement

  • Server 1
    • OS - Proxmox VE (Debian based linux hypervisor)
    • Hardware
      • AMD Ryzen 7 2700 8c/16t on an Asrock Rack x470-2x10gb motherboard with IPMI
      • 64GB DDR4 ECC (error correcting very important for data integrity IMO)
      • 2x 240GB SSD ZFS RAID1 for the OS
      • 1x 1TB NVME SSD ZFS for VMs (Virtual Machines)
      • 6x 4TB NAS 7.2k drives in ZFS RAID10 (main storage for all data)
      • LSI-3008i SAS HBA
    • Services
      • Plex container
      • File shares via SAMBA
      • Wireguard container
      • Unifi Controller
      • Several VMs for different purposes (one of them dedicated to video encoding)
  • Server 2
    • OS - Proxmox Backup Server
    • Hardware
      • Junk old 4th gen i3 with 16gb ram and cheap mobo
      • 2x 240gb ssd in ZFS RAID1 for OS
      • 1x500GB SSD ZFS for VM Backup
      • 1x 8TB Toshiba X300 ZFS for backing up RAID10 array - will need to upgrade at some point
  • Desktop 1
    • OS - Windows 10 Pro
    • Hardware
      • Ryzen 7 5800x - 32GB RAM - RTX 3080
      • 1x 1TB NVME - main storage and also used as a scratch drive when doing IO heavy video editing
      • 1x 8TB Toshiba - secondary scratch drive, and 3rd tier of backing up RAID10 array
    • Services
      • Dropbox Pro 2TB for ultra-important documents and certain videos...
My main strategy for storage/backups is this

My main Proxmox server hosts a decently sized 12TB volume shared out with SAMBA (SMB on windows), that I connect to via standard mapped drive on Desktop1. All my downloads go straight to this network share. This is protected against bit-rot and other errors via the ECC memory on the server, as well as ZFS protections. It's also capable of losing up to 3 drives and still have all the data available (I have a drive failure right now that I'm working on replacing). That storage then gets ZFS snapshots sent to the 8TB on Server2 (Proxmox BS). Finally, I do a regular file-level backup periodically and often using Total Commander on my desktop that does a synch between the network share, and my local 8TB HDD.

I've thought a lot, and spent a lot of time configuring this, but it should protect against bitrot, data corruption, even ransomware as long as it's caught quick enough. I'm not sure how many snapshots I can get on the PBS server, but its several weeks worth at least. SSDs are getting cheap enough that I plan on upgrading the 8TB HDD to an 8TB SSD in my main workstation as well.

That's crazy! I've never even heard of ZFS before. Just curious for desktop you choose Win10, for games? Or other needs not satisfied by Linux and Wine?

As much as I'd love to switch to Linux for my desktop (especially ZFS on my desktop!), VR gaming, and some specific software (like Topaz Labs VEIA) and work from home just don't work seamless enough. My end-goal was actually to make all my Windows workstations VMs, but it didn't work out. Windows just tended to be the easiest, least disruptive solution.
