Windows 7 Ultimate

ok I am making some progress with this new version of MB. I got the subtitle and play like this plugins to show up in the context menu. I had to install media center control so that the * could work. Now the trailer option is always grayed out on all my themes, and I know I have trailers in my folders. I checked the path in the xml to make sure it is correct. The trailer option worked in the prior version. I tried various themes to see if that helped, no luck. Some themes don't even give you the trailer option, but that is nothing new, it was like that in the other versions as well.

Oh ok I need to have a trailers folder inside my movie folder, and then the actual trailer. Man that means I have to move all my trailers to a trailer folder, I will have to write a script to do that.
edit: ok got it working now, man I have really out of the loop, so much has changed. Thanks Demon for keeping me in line.

Here is the script:
rem this script will look for a particular file, it exist, it will create a folder and move the file found to the
rem folder that was created
@echo off
set ""
set "BaseDir=this is the folder that you want the script to scan"
set "NewDir=Trailers"
for /f "tokens=*" %%A in ('dir /a-d /b /s "%BaseDir%\%Filter%"') do (
mkdir "%%~dpA%NewDir%"
move "%%~fA" "%%~dpA%NewDir%"

My apologies, and welcome to the forum. Glad I have the honor of responding to your first post. Copy and paste the script into notepad, and save it as a batch file with whatever name you want. Note: make sure it had a .bat extension, and not bat.txt. Then put the script where you want it to run, and just run it. Let me know if you have any more questions. For simplicity, download the script the from here

Kinda sorta but not like I think your talking about.
MB can generate it's own playlists that can, play all, play unwatched, play random.
But right now it still doesn't have the ability to let the user browse the collection and create their own playlist.

Media Center can read and play asx playlists. Those are not to hard to sit and make by hand. Then put in a place MC can see them.

I decided to look around before I submitted this and I found a nice little java script, that you can use to generate the info that go's inside the asx playlist. Then you just copy it from the web browser and paste it into a new txt document, rename .txt = .asx Done

To create the ASX file, simply use the form. Pressing "Create" will result in your ASX file to be created in the textarea.
Simply copy and paste it into any texteditor and save with the ending .asx.
First enter a title for your asx file, this one will later be displayed in the titlebar of the mediaplayer. Then define the filepath to the folder containing the mediafiles you want to display. If you leave this one empty, you need to put the asx file in the same folder as the mediafiles.
Then you either define a series of files with the same name to be displayed or a series of mixed names.
The first option allows you then to create an ASX file with a series of the same name, such as film1.mpg,film2.mpg,film3.mpg and film4.mpg .
To do that, simply enter the name of the series and select it's filetype from the dropdown menu.
You can then enter the startnumber and endnumber of the series and select if the digits below 10 shall have a "0" in front or not.
After entering all your data, scroll down and press the "Create" button.
The second option allows you to create a playlist of totally different files, all you do is to enter all the filenames in the textfield, separated by a ",". Make sure not to enter any blanks.
So if you want to create a playlist for the files
movie1.mpg,splash3.avi and, simply enter
Then scroll down and press "Create!".

»Launch ASX-O-Matic.
