One at a time please

I thought this was intuitive -- it was for me at least. Switch to expanded tile or detail mode, right click the data in the column you want to edit and select, well, EDIT

To edit, say, all the parental tags on your Kid Rock songs so the kids don't find them during a search and play them, select the Artist view under Music and type "Kid Rock" in the search box. Double click the result. Ctrl+A to select all, right click the Parental Rating column, type "NAUGHTY!" and press <enter>. All your Kid Rock music is now tagged as such.

What's the next thing you want to do?

are you giving me the steps to a 3rd party app? or something MS? If so, cant do any of what you just mentioned in 7000, in any mode, detail etc, cant right click the parental column and edit either, no edit option even available, even if alt/edit, nothing in the menu there either. Cant rate a file either, manually. I think its avail thru winamp, but couldnt even find it thru WMP. There isnt any option to edit the details info properties. My brain may be thick as a milkshake right now, but i just cant wrap around this. or come to any explanation/reason why this is so difficult, when it seems simple as pie to be able to do.

my second thought

but will this not be filtered by 7 thru WMP or MC? Naughty? How about a rating, like the game or movie system uses, currently this can only be done (that i know of) is with the playback of a retail dvd or by watching tv thru MC/WMP. If the movie or songs are R rated or explicit lyrics then i want those filtered from the kids. Instead of either hiding the dir itself, and while still being IN the chosen linked library, and avail to users with explicit/ratings permission, just like for the games per say. Not a homebrew thing i am looking for, just wanting to know how to use what looks to be used there in the info tag props

Windows Media Player 12. I'm using build 7077 but I'm sure it was in there before:

Don't share your music folder, share your library. Create whatever rating system you wish and then use this dialog:

Is the Tag Editor gone in WMP 12-1.jpg

And you've got that pane in 7000 -- go to your music library and view some songs and drag that pane bigger

Also, i've just tried and you can change multiple files at once (within WMP12). Select the files you want (normally click 1st track then shift-click the last track), then right click the first track (under Parental Rating) and type what you want. It will type in the 1 box but once you press enter it'll change all selected tracks to that same tag.

Hope this helps

thanks for the replies baarod on this. Still tho, where did you get that dialogue box in the figure shot (stream)... now this i dont think i have on 7000, think it (stream) came into play with 22 or 48 cant recall. I dont just share my music folder, i share the music library with adding other "music" folders to the music library.

May have to be naughty and upgrade.... haha, looky i made a joke, lol

Yeah, now that I think of it, they changed sharing to streaming sometime back. The idea is that your library, no matter what folders are in it, is added to the WMP library and Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service (wmpnetwk.exe) makes it available over the network to WMP instances either on the same machine or over the homegroup, even when you're logged out.

right. I have an extender on the network. This is the main reason why i started to want this more and more, besides just with lan pc's.

And as long as the folders are indexed as well....? right? if not then they wont show in the homegroup folder library as well as the WMP or MC if they are not indexed?

also, i see how you can choose what media to stream or not by content, but can you go further and specify to what user and pc? 5 users on a pc, and 3 different ratings allowed (age groups) per the 5 users, dont want a G rated user be able to list or execute an R rated or pg13 flick.

In my mind i want to rate all content, then have to rate a user (sort of), then allowing or not allowing access granted to the user rating. If a G rated user, clicking on a non G content would give an error box or something letting them know they cant or dont have privs to access, or like the admin dialogue box, having to type in admin pass to be able to view.

If the media is in your library it will get indexed by default. If you see it in WMP then it's available to be shared depending on restrictions you set.

You can restrict by user and PC.

Users won't even be shown content they have no access to.
