Are you referring to the image of the folder when you first open MB? If that is what you are referring to, you can do it two ways.
1. Launch the media browser config tool, then on the left pane, highlight your folder, then when it shows up on the right pane, click the button to change the image. Browse to where you have a picture, and select it.
2. Copy and paste or type this: image: d:\movies\folder.jpg
in the .vf folder you created. (make sure the picture is there.)
Edit to suit your needs.

Merge the attached reg file to allow taking ownership of any file of folder by just right clicking it.

I know some of you probably have a ton of movies in one folder, but remember MB needs each movie to be in its own folder. Yeah you have the headache of sitting there creating 500 folders with names to match your 500 movies......so you thought. Extract the zip file to the folder that has all your movies. Double click the batch file, sit back and watch your 500 movies get put into 500 folders with matching names.

I (used to LOL) have a rather large collection of movies, but i've only got a few now. I've got them all stored in the same folder & it's working fine. The only thing is TV series, is there a specific format with which the filenames/folders have to be called?

Great add on thank you DemonSeed, it's nice the way it adds the movie covers and descriptions.

It even does it for all my Heroes episodes and renamed them as well.

There is an easer way!



And to see a backdrop in the starting window go to
Program Data/Media Browser/Startup Folder and add your jpg then name it backdrop.jpg

In the case of tv shows, the files need to be grouped in a season folder inside the shows main folder:
Suggested Directory Structure for TV Shows
D:\TV Shows\My TV Show\Season 1\
101-Episode 1.avi
102-Episode 2.avi
D:\TV Shows\My Tv Show\Season2\
201-Epispode 1.avi
202- Episode 2.avi

Oh I forgot to mention that the file in the archive uploaded earlier is hidden. Change your folder options to show hidden, so you can see it. Then change the attribute of the file to unhidden for further use.
I attached 2 text files. After saving the show_hidden_files.txt. change it to show_hidden_files.vbs<<< use it to toggle between showing or not showing hidden files. Saves you the headache from launching folder options.
The second file, file2folder.txt, convert that to a batch file to move files to folders, and automatically give it the name of the file that it is moved to the folder.

Wait!!!! Are you saying that MB is working fine with more than one movie in the same folder? Is it displaying the art for each movie in the folder?
