Hi Booom, welcome to the forums.

Just make sure that all of your movie files are in their own folder, extract the contents of and copy to the folder that has all your videos. Once you run the file, all your movies will be in their own folder.

You need to have the correct folder selected to manage

And all the download sections you need are selected

There is also a tutorial for setting up your movie library
Media Center- Setup Movie Library

Hope this helps :)

I'm loving this setup, it's pretty awesome.

Two niggles though.

1)What if you're accessing multiple network destinations that require different credentials?

2)Secondly, YAMMM apparenlty doesn't like the movie "Under The Same Moon", it renames it as "please remove this file" but it get's all the correct data. =(

#1- Working on that. I'm going to change so that there are default credentials and folder credentials

#2- This is because the movie was created twice in The user who created the 2nd entry probably noticed and renamed it w/o letting the moderators know. I'll submit a request to have it deleted and add an ignore list to Yammm with "please delete"

I jumped the gun the other day when i said Yammm was working OK after my upgrade to 7260. Come to find out it only would open the program and nothing would happen.

Well after debating whether or not to do a reformat I decided to install .net framework 4 - here and all seems to work now. Guess my 3.5 .net framework was faulty or something.
visual studio 2010

also a quick question - wondering why some movies are relabeled with the at the end - like I chose it to do, and a lot of them did not get renamed, but the year was put in? as seen in this list
