Yesterday I made a clean install and tried to run a new scann of drives for videos.
All my videos has a folder.jpg and each video has its own folder.

I tried to set the "each video has its own folder" property, but this didn't make any differents.

I then downloaded the source code and found at line 167 in IMDBFetcher.cs this:
bool folderTitle = xmlreader.GetValueAsBool("moviedatabase", "usefolderastitle", false);
I then looked in the xml files for "usefolderastitle" but could not find it.

Maybe its outdated in someway?

Am I missing something?

I look forward for your help :)

no.. the installed version i 1.1.2 (and just updated to 1.1.3) but its still there.. I couldn't find this error in the issue tracker, and that is why added it.

Do you think this issue is corrected in the upcoming release?

    The source code you downloaded is latest one for 1.2.0B and that setting doesn't exist in 1.1.x.

    Folder.jpg works in 1.2.0B. My Videos module until version 1.1.x is broken in many places and it's been significantly rewritten from 1.2.0 Alpha version.
