Before we begin, let us cover a few things to make sure you are prepared.
1. are all your movies in their own folders? If not use this script that will automatically put them in their own folders, and assign them the matching name as well: copy the bat file to your parent folder, and then double click it, and it will create the movie folders for you.
Next, you need to decide how you want your folders displayed. If you want multiple folders displayed (multiple "links") or like me, I prefer one folder ("link") displayed.
Do you want actor images for your movies to be displayed in MB? If yes, then you need an ImagesbyName folder to created in your "C:\ProgramData\MediaBrowser" folder. Programdata is a hidden folder, so you will need to unhide it.

But, here is as simple as it gets (for a straight out of the box usage)
Run the configuration wizard
Click the "Add" button to add the movie folder you want MB to scan.
Then click the Advanced tab, then click the Display tab, and check the options you want, and then click Save.
I suggest you get your folder structure in order first. Basically create a parent folder (this is the one MB will monitor or scan), then create sub folders in the parent folder of your different movies.
Example: parent movie folder called HD movies, then inside of that you will have your sub folders of your movies. (HD Movies\300)

Native Quicktime Browser Plugin
Hey everyone, Isn't there supposed to be native support for quicktime in Windows 7? If I go to the movie trailers page on Apple I can't play any of the movies. Was support only added for for size movie downloads and no browser integration? Dave
