How to get YAMMM metadata to show up on multiple PCs/MCs

This was my solution:
1. Shared the 2nd PC's \Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\eHome\DvdInfoCache folder
2. Added this shared folder under YammmConfig Metadata Additional Folders
3. Entered an admin user/password for 2nd PC under YammmConfig Library Network credentials

Watched the shared folder on the 2nd PC and saw YAMMM000-xxxxxxxx.xml files added to it.

Pulled up MC on the 2nd PC, gave it a long few minutes and I got the cover art, etc.

Even though my 2nd PC's share was read/write by everyone, I still needed the credentials for YAMMM to push the files to the shared folder. If I want to do a 3rd PC (I do) I suspect I'll need the same user/password on all PCs as there is only one credential entry possible.

Couldn't find this anywhere, so I figured I'd share it.

Yammm metadata

Is there anyway to edit the metadata that Yammm creates? For instance, the movie "Live Free or Die Hard", in this image http://i42.tinypic.com/2ptx838.png , if i wanted to change the "Sort Title" from "Live Free or Die Hard" to "Die Hard 4"(I'm assuming that's how WMC7 organizes the movies, in alphabetical order). I can open and view the metadata via IE, but I cannot edit it. Is there anyway to edit metadata, or create metadata from scratch even?

If you change the name, YAMMM will change it back in no time! This is because YAMMM gets its movie database info direct from IMDB.com. To edit the metadata you need an xml editor like dreamweaver (Think webpage editor). Hope this helps!

And I hope Mikenho updates Yammm soon!!!

It has been a long time, but I have returned. I'm glad to be back.

I'm not some super geek like Orbital Shark or Darryl Licht, but I do have an extensive movie collection, anything from 1990 to 2013.

I feel everyones pain with downloading the metadata for the movies, I checked my servers bandwidth logger, and noticed I burned nearly 2GB of bandwidth on just images, and xml files for my collection.


@ mikinho/Orbital Shark/ Darryl Licht

I have noticed a severe issue with using NAS setups. I have nearly 40TB of space for my media collection. I have the Raw Files, Encoded Blu-Ray, and a mobile version of every movie thats available. I've noticed some files not being named properly, metadata for the wrong movie, and overall un-compatible with my setup.

This is my setup;
Internet -> Server -> Router -> Nas/Everything Else. For some reason, the YAMMM doesn't want to recognize nearly 75% of my collection. I have it classified in different sections, only the Blu-ray Encodes are "registered" through Media Center. Since I moved from internal storage to external, I've had nothing but problems. At first YAMMM couldn't even acknowledge I had a Network Drive, finally got it to accept it by making a shortcut on the desktop to point it too. I'm hoping you won't tell me to move it from a NAS to the Server, cause that simply isn't possible with the 2U RM I have, not enough space, and I don't have the cash for a 6U or 8U RM. I can post specs for the server, but I would prefer to keep that off the radar due to the cost of said server and how I have my network setup.


I'm doing all of this work remotely, and won't be home for another few months, I'd like to get this wrapped up so my family can continue watching and having access to my media collection.

My neighbors are also without access due to my router getting bricked. But that is another problem for another time. (They pay for my internet in order to have access to my media collection). 10mbit up / down for $43 a month, no bandwidth cap. I've burned 2.5TB of data streaming videos before I was called about it.

P.S. mikinho, I love your work. No other Media Manager has worked for me. Just to work out kinks and bugs, I'm glad to be a guinea pig for you! Much <3 Bro!

Wow! I thought I had a lot of media files! 40 TB is an awful lot of media! I am willing to bet that your NAS is running Linux as its base OS. You may have a permissions issue between YAMM and or your PC, and the NAS. Make sure you have the correct username and pw in YAMM config under Network Credentials for starters.

I also have the occasional movie that gets the wrong name altogether, or is appended with Russian or Chinese characters and I still cannot fix those.

In most misnamed file cases I rename the file to the IMDB # of the page for that movie on imdb. So, for example if I had a problem with the naming of Star Trek and the movies located at: Star Trek (2009) - IMDb then I just rename the file or folder to tt0796366 and YAMM will give it the correct name 95% of the time.

I am also assuming that you are structuring your movie folders in a way that YAMM can recognize, how are you naming your files and or folders?

And looking at the yamm site, pretty sure he abandoned updating the program long ago, and moved onto the Ceton Windows Media extender, which he works for.

Suppose you could always ask him on his twitter feed.
