Only build 7600. I won't have access to the official RTM until the 6th.

As is Movie Library still shows hidden files so I'm implementing a fix. This will be the last change prior to releasing 1.2.

Sorry for not having provided an update here in a while, I've been busy both on Yammm and other projects.

The good news is that I've added more features, the bad is I'm not quite ready to publish. I had the bright idea of hosting part of the metaservices in an Azure site but after playing with it there for about a week I realized I'd exceed the daily bandwidth cap within a couple hours if I had over 20 users (I'm hoping Yammm does but not sure to be honest). I've reverted back to a SQL 2008 R2 backend but still making minor changes here and there.

I'm also scheduled for my surgery next week. If I don't get it published this week I'll have a couple days of being in a bed to work on it =0

Just wanted to mention that I made a minor update to the current released version so that locked folders will retry. I had this in v1.2 already but I've had a lot of e-mails asking why folders weren't being renamed right away when they were copying folders over so I added it to the current version. If a folder is locked, it will download the metadata and artwork then queue it for retry.

So the most recent is v1.0.3526.15926. It is available via: http://www.mikinho.com/wmc/yammmsetup.msi.

Just installed v1.0.3526.15926 of YAMMM, but nothing seems to happen.

I have my ASRock ION PC set up for WMC and YAMMM installed there, but the video files are on a shared drive on my main PC.

Do I have to map a drive from my ASRock to the shared drive, or should it work via UNC, or do I have to install YAMMM on my main PC with the shared drive ??

I have 1 folder on my ASRock with some movies in and I have run the file2dir.bat file so that it creates the films in the their repective folder, but when does the metadata get downloaded ?? Does WMC have to be running to dowload the data, or is it YAMMM that does it ??

Also, does YAMMM work with TV shows as well ??

As an aside, I have added all of my video folders (movies and TV hows) to the Video Library - should they go into their respective libraries, Movies and Recorded TV ??

Thanks in advance.

Odd. I had replied but I guess I didn't hit submit.

If you are using remote shares you'll need to enter a remote username\password on the Library tab. Use UNC Paths, shared drives are currently unsupported.

Yammm will download the metadata as soon as possible, WMC doesn't need to be running. The current version does not support TV shows; however, the new version already does. It is still a couple days away.

In terms of your Library setup. I put my movies and tv shows in their respective Library but I also add them to the Video Library as a backup.

That's fantastic news, glad v1.2 supports TV as I have a few rips. As always, the new version is very anticipated but only in your own time

Thanks mikinho.

Just YAMMMing up my collection now !!

I'm glad v1.2 will have TV support, as now I am a convert to WMC from XBMC, I miss the TV episode information etc. !!

Any chance of a "beta" version of v1.2 now ??

Hope the knees better soon
