Motivation

In certain scenarios assets are created in VidiCore that shall not be visible in MediaPortal or other user interfaces accessible by end users. Examples for such assets are:

  • partial items (see Partial Assets [C ARC]);

  • items for storing MOGRT files for VidiEditor;

  • VidiEditor items holding the timeline before being rendered.

Workflow

Items or collections can be marked as hidden in user interfaces by setting the Boolean metadata field V3_Hidden to true.

For MediaPortal 21.1 (and newer) as well as other user front-ends like VidiEditor or EditMate this means that these items and collections are excluded from display and search.

For MediaPortal versions before 21.1 this means that such items are not published to the MediaPortal OpenSearch index by VidiFlow’s MediaPortal connector.
