To have mediabrowser fetch it's own metadata you'll need to have your collection sorted like mb needs to be able to understand what it is looking at.

That means every movie will need to be in a folder of it's own named EXACTLY as the movie is named, and same for the movie it's self, named exactly as the movie is.

ie D:\Movies\Cars\Cars.avi

TV shows also need to be sorted just so for mb to fetch info.

F:\TV Shows\Lost\Season 1\Lost 01x01 - Pilot.avi
or s01e01

but the names MUST be perfect, or mb will not know what it's looking at and fetch nothing.

you must also ensure that fetching metadata is enabled in the mb config options.

to learn all about what makes mb tick check out the MB Knowledge Base or (KB), Media Browser Community Tracker

windows 7 - 64 bit
Media Browser

If I put on my remote for example the button for “ VIDEOS” I go into this chapter in WMC.
But I would like to put on the same button and go into MEDIA BROWSER. Is this possible ?

if you can program your remote to open a shortcut ,then have it open the mediabrowser shortcut, if you cant find it it will be in programfiles/ mediabrowser , and the shortcut is called application.
if not then pressing the media center button on your remote and scrolling up to mediabrowser is the only option i know.

windows7 7600 x86

Hey all been a while. I just bought a sony bluray and was wondering if i can set-up wmc with mediabrowser to connect via https, and if so will it look worse than streaming directly to device via wmp?

savvy - as in - this meaning

Thanks in advance

p.s. i see serviio pro has mediabrowser with it but do i need or want to buy that program just to access from internet?

netflix looks OK

i just installed - web- API not sure if right thing

Thanks again, peace

update - tried mezzmo - ok but cant do on the fly rendering or transcodes
wmp - great, but cant read a lot of files even with shark codecs and flac support etc.
wild media center - so far so good
xbmc - tried but looks like rest unless i add to bluray as http -
plex - no way
arcsoft - awaiting on you as George might say
serviico - still wait for expert opinion
obviously can download these illegally, but want to pay for correct one for my pc

I was curious, and didn't feel like searching through 124 pages but, is there a way to make your own theme? I absolutely love this.

Yes, but you'd need to be a proficient programmer in C# and MCML. the code is open source and there is plugin project files included for the template

cant connect to Youtube from Everio Mediabrowser
I use Everio Mediabrowser to download my JVC videos. I can upload directly to You Tube on it but since I started using W7 (64 bit home) I get an error it cannot connect to Internet. It works fine on my other laptop that runs XP so I'm thinking it is a W7 issue not my software. I had this...
