I've tried a couple of meta data managers now, but I can't get any of them to work.

I have all my media in a single folder, with no sub-folders. Here lies all my WMVs, DIVX AVI's, MKV, etc.

To get meta data managers to work, will I need to have each movie file in a separate, appropriately named folder? In that case, is there an app to automate creating folders and moving files?

Did you read the YAMMM Tutorial, or Media Center- Setup Movie Library ??

In the 2nd link, there is a file2folder.bat download to move videos into their own folder.

I'm having some issues with the "hide playlist members" option in YAMMM with Win7 - specifically, it's not hiding the playlist members! I have a few movies that have 2 parts, and all of them show up 3 times (one for the .wvx, and twice more for each part). I can confirm that the playlist members themselves are marked as hidden (if I check the file attributes) but Win 7 MC doesn't seem to be respecting that bit and it's showing them anyway. The files are coming from a remote share that's indexed - is it possible the indexing is screwing it up?

The issue is with 7MC, it looks to be designed to show hidden files. mikinho is currently working on a way to integrate certain code that will make the 'playlist' files work exactly as they should.

Keep an eye out for v1.2 which should be out soon

Tis true. My fix is that I create a hidden folder that the files get moved into and the playlist updated. Working on a fix to genre and MPAA today and will be releasing a minor update when complete.

Great idea :)

Hey guys, I've been following this thread (and others) for a while in anticipation of setting up my own MCPC. Well, now I have all the hardware, and it works great but I can't seem to figure out this YAMMM app.

I installed it on a Win 7 machine, and have it monitoring my movie collection folder. As soon as I create a folder here it is renamed approriately, a dvdid.xml file appears, and moments later folder.jpg is downloaded. So obviously things are working as expected.

My question is, what kind of information is YAMMM collecting. all my dvdid.xml files look alot like this:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Disc>
  <Name>Matrix, The</Name>
  <ID>2A5CD1DF|9AC1AF16</ID>
</Disc>
I thought YAMMM would actually get some useful information - like synopsis, cast and crew, and related movies etc... I even saw an option in YAMMM to grab the IMDB rating which I checked. I'm not seeing anything like this though. What am I missing??

eisenpony: this information appear in the Windows Media Center, after you setup your movie libraries. Did you have make the setup?

If not, go to the tutorial in the first page, and follow the links of Orbital Shark tutorial. ^^

Im waiting eagerly to see the version 1.2, with support to my House M.D. collection.

Mikinho, I have a problem here. My adult movies folder is guarded in a different location in my drive (concerning my sons, that have access to my movies folder). Well, I put the path correctly in YAMMM, but it dont found anything to this folder.

Any idea?

Check if themoviedb.org has Adult films, I do not believe they do. If not, I can check if one of the different sources I'm looking at does.

btw, themoviedb is currently down =/. I've setup a simple website that I'll be publishing Yammm updates to (I'll still mention here as well) that I'll be starting to publish dev builds for those who would like to test out new features before I get a chance to thoroughly test and publish: Mikinho | Yammm (work in progress, i've only put 30-40 of work so far)
