I am about to make the move to upgrade to the newest version of MB, any tips I need to consider before starting? Will the new one over write the old one? Or, should I uninstall the old one first before installing the new one? Also, does anyone know if the reg key in the entry point for this one, is the same as the old one?

Zay I would like your help with something please.


I want to have a easy way to view photos with MB and came up with a pretty good solution.
But I need your help to Finish the code. I placed and changed some I found to put a lot of photos in a folder of there own and add an empty.avi in the folder with each picture.
But I need you to add to it so it will all so rename the pictures to folder.jpg, and would also like it to copy the picture and the copy be named backdrop.jpg.

This is what I have so far
Code:
@echo off

for %%a in (*.*) do (
md "%%~na" 2>nul
move "%%a" "%%~na"
) 
Echo empty.avi placed in
Echo    %~dp0
Echo. > empty.avi
FOR /f "tokens=* delims= " %%a in ('dir/b/x/ad/s "%~sdp0"') do (
Echo    %%a\
Echo. > "%%a\empty.avi"
)
Will you complete it for me please?

I have tested it and it works well at showing the pics with Media Browser specially in thumbs view



EDIT:
You know now that I think about it can you wright one to do this.
Rename all the *jpg files "in the folder with the batch file" to be called backdrop, backdrop1, backdrop2 and so on.
And copy the first image only and name it folder.jpg And add an empty.avi to the folder.

That way I can just hover over the folder in MB and it will cycle through the pictures on the main screen.

Thanks a lot!

As normal with these you need to be viewing it through firefox to see the animation.

My Boxset Collection:
Here is mine using shortcuts from a folder and pointing MB to it.
i.e. C:user/documents/Movie Box Sets/The Matrix, The Matrix - Shortcut, The Matrix Reloaded - Shortcut, The Matrix Revolutions - Shortcut, backdrop.jpg, backdrop1.jpg ect. + a folder.png
I dont put more than one movie in a folder in my storage of my movies so I can keep a true count of everything. And if I want to jump right to any of my titles from my main browsing for my movies with out going any deeper. I personally like it this way so this might give you some options to work with.

Ok couple of things to clarify:
You want all the .jpg (except the first one) to be called backdrop1 and so on? The first one is skipped, and renamed to folder.jpg?
Where is empty.avi coming from?
Or, do you want it to create a file called empty.avi?

Yes but the name list starts at backdrop. then backdrop1 ect.

Yes skipping the first and renaming it to folder will work fine.

Yes create the file empty.avi. This way MB will see and look in the folder.

Thank GOD you showed up!!!
I have been tring for 3hrs to work on the first one I showed but could not for the life of me figure out to get it to stop moving the damn bat to a folder and cutting off the last part of the command list.

Man I have been pulling hares!!! I mean IT HELP ME PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!

yeah I tested your script, and it created the folders fine (the first part came from that file2folder huh? lol), but the other part you added, is moving the batch file as well, and generating a missing batch file error. Give me some time to work on this for you. I am working on a major backup issue with a mail server, but I will make sometime to do that for you. I am also working on getting the moving png files to work in IE7. I know why it does not work, I am working on a work around. With the invent of IE7 and onward, there is mode called quirks mode that allows browsers to be backward compatible, that functionality went away. FF, safari, Opera, and a few other browsers still have that function. I will keep you in the loop. But I will put a high priority on that script for you.

If running them as one causes a problem, sometimes what I do is have one batch file call another batch file to do the other part for you. Let's say your second batch file is called move.bat, on the last line of the first batch file type this Call move.bat
