Windows 7: Removing categories folders from a WMP share in a home network

Removing categories folders from a WMP share in a home network

Sorry if this is the wrong section but I couldn't figure out whether posting this on Network or Video so please forgive me and move if needed

Second, forgive me if the names of certain items are not right, I'm using Windows 7 ITA so I'll try my best to translate somehow so you will understand the terminology used.

Now, I have a network at home, so I added a Video folder to WMP library. Everything works fine, I can watch videos on my TV and on my Smartphone, Tablet, etc... using DLNA (they're all Samsung).

The question is : whenever I access my share from all my devices, I'm expecting to see just the folders I'm sharing. But what I see is a bunch of folders used to categorize my content based on different attributes. But let me show it to understand better.


What I actually see :

- TV Recordings
- Series
- Actors
- Rating
- Playlist
- Genre
- Folders
- ....

What I want to see :

- Folders


So, is there a way to remove this categorization thing cos it's useless to me and confusing, since I already have my videos sorted the way I like it? Is it WMP doing this or DLNA?

If I was unclear or need more info, just ask. Thank you
