I don't think it does that.

Dreadstar is correct, Yammm does not yet incorporate ImagesByName. I'm not sure if future releases will though, yet

I am stumped!


1st off awesome tutorial, wish I had read it BEFORE I fiddled around for days with this. YAMM made everything so SIMPLE! Dont worry, reps are on the way!

However, I have an issue... I have only 1 directory with my movies in it, yet I show 2 icons of each movie! I have everything in a sub-directory of my Videos directory... C:\Users\Jonathan\Videos\DVDRips.

I am stumped! Any ideas?

The "My Videos" folder is monitoring by Movie Library by default, did you happen to add it manually as well? In general I would never use the "My Videos" folder as a root. Too many default actions that you have no control over. I'm a big fan of the native libraries and always use them over wmp's library but not of the "My" shell folders.

Try moving it a different location, clear out your Movie Library watched folder list and then adding the new location.

Yeah, I wondered if that directory/sub-dir might be the issue. I will move to a completely different drive and see how that works!

Thanks for the great work on YAMM! Any idea when the next update will be or what new features you are adding?

EDIT --- miknho... yep you were correct... moved them to a different HDD and all is good!
