hey mikinho,
just picking your brain, but some of my movies are split into 2 parts (part 1 and part 2 obviosuly lol). my question is this, after yammm has had its way and created a playlist for the 2 to join them together, when loaded up in WMC it still displays the auto playlist, part 1 and part 2 as 3 different movies(with 3 album arts) which obviously is not the desired result, any thoughts on this?
regards,
nic

Dear Mikinho,
thanks for this great program!

Accordingly to the below ways for dealing with movies stored on a server, then I went for option 1! And it seems to worked fine, just have to be carefull on the folder names, if to long and complex it give me issues!

GEtting a easy way to get YAMMM to work over shares/homegruop is a high priority for this program I guess, but option ! seems to work very good!

I just wounder why all movie meta data is not just stored in one XML file in each movie folder! This also means if one should move a copy to a computer whitout YAMM on it, then you still get the info in MCE????

You can choose to go a couple different routes:

1- Install on the W7 HTPC. With this you'll need to:

- Setup remote credentials on the Library tab
- Add the remote share to the movie folder list
- Under the metadata tab check Windows Media Center and the corresponding user accounts.

2- Keep it on the XP machines. With this you'll need to:

On W7 HTPC

- Share the %AppData%\Microsoft\eHome\DvdInfoCache folder and make sure to grant read\write rights to both the share and folder to whatever user account you want to use.

On the XP PC

- Under the Library tab setup remote credentials. For the username use the DOMAIN\username format. In this case the DOMAIN will be the computer name of the W7 HTPC.
- Under the Metadata tab, add the DvdInfoCache share you created as an additional folder.

v2 of Yammm will make this much easier.

Yep =/ It is hosted on a virtual machine that got corrupted. The hosting company is busy repairing and\or attempting to restore from backup. The hosting is very graciously donated from a Yammm user so any effort on their part is very much appreciated.

If you need any app just let me know and I'll send.
