Windows 7: How to link trailers to actual movie

How to link trailers to actual movie

If this is a redundant thread, then my apologies.
If you have a lot of movies, and want to impress your friends by showing trailers for your movie collection, then download and install this tool
The Green Button - GetTrailers
The auto downloader is the best feature in the app. It will scan the folder you want it to auto download to, then look for matching movies, then download to each matching folder. Now once you have all your trailers downloaded, you need to link it to the actual movie. Note: For this to work, you need to have Media Browser Vanilla edition installed.
Setting up the link:
In each movie folder edit or create MyMovies.xml (yes, it HAS to be called MyMovies.xml)
as such:
Once you have the .xml created, and you launch MB, you will see a movie reel icon on the left side, click it to play the trailer without having to browse away from the movie, see attachment.

I love the app you pointed out.
But there is a easier way to get them to play in order as long as you dont have TS Folders
Lets say you got a folder lets call it Die Hard in side is a Die Hard.avi and the new Trailer.
Just rename the Trailer Die Hard01 and the movie Die Hard02 and Media Browser will play them back in order.

See didn't I say EASIER But you don't get the cool button

IMDB Trailers Won't Play - Is it the newly installed Chrome browser?
Ever since I installed the Google Chrome browser, I can no longer play any of the IMDB trailers (??). Is this a common problem . . . or, is there something I need to configure in Chrome to restore this . . . or, is this something else entirely (and NOT the Chrome browser)? A real enigma. (????)
