Ok, first off. If you're going to insult someone's work, better learn how to spell your words. It makes you look like a bigger idiot than you already are. If you can't figure out how YAMMM works, don't use it. I use it fine, I have no beef or quarrel's with it. It does EXACTLY what I need it to do. Why don't you explain what kind of problems your having, because it looks like a rant to me, which is unacceptable.

Let me try and understand your problem. Do you currently have all your movies in the Win7 Movies Library?

If so, that's the issue. I had the same problem and I just created a new folder and moved all my movies to that folder. Then just point Media Center in that direction. Trust me... YAMMM is an awesome program, it just doesnt work with the movies in the Movie Library.

include your movies folder to videos library

use file2folder:
Media Center- Setup Movie Library-capture4.jpg
and give the path to WMC and YAMM, use the recommended settings and you are done.
It works for me just fine
cheers

Hi there guys, my first post here, I only became aware of the forum when a friend emailed me a link to this tutorial and very good it was. I'd been wanting something to make my films a little more fun to navigate for while now. My only problem is that when I go into my movies folder in WMC all the pictures appear fine but after around 20 seconds or so they all dissapear again and then 5 mins or so later they return and stay. This obviously is rather annoying but as I'm new to the whole media database thing I'm unsure of why it's happening. I've been using the Yammm software.

Anyone have any ideas on why thid might be happening, once again thanks to orbital shark for the tutorial.

Try using YAMMM's built in ability to shrink the images sizes... if the jpg's are all large that may be the issue.

Hi Darryl, thanks for the reply. I have already used the shrink feature on the medium setting and 92 quality. The average image size is around 100k. I find it odd though that pictures all appear straight away when I first enter WMC but then dissapear. I also have a system that should be cabable of displaying thumbs very quickly, in windows explorer for example the images appear instantly and stay there for me. Any other ideas guys?

I also can't get WMC to display any more than the basic synopsis info, so no cast crew, similiar movies etc. I also got Yammm to download the background art but it won't display it when I select a film.

Just curious if anyone has been able to get YAMM to work over a networked storage drive? I keep my movies in a /video/movienamefolder setup on another machine on my net, yamm wouldn't let me choose network directories, but i could map the drive then pick it on the local computer, no errors in the event logs, but yamm doesn't seem to want to work with it like this

And i can write to the mapped drive/dirs no problem

Thanks guys

Yammm only works w/ UNC paths. If you can't select it from the Folder Open dialog then you can manually edit the config file. Replace the mapped drive w/ the UNC Path. Also make sure that you have explicit remote credentials configured in the Library tab.

1- Open %ProgramData%\Yammm\Yammm.config in notepad
2- Find the Folder tag and make it look similar to <Folder>\\WHS01\Videos\Movies</Folder>
3- Save the file

Wow! Sorry. I was NOT insulting the work of the OP. In fact great work providing a tutorial on how to navigate through this new mess and make it so we can organize our libraries again.

My problem is I would like to view folders again, also I cant figure out how YAMMM works and would like to.

Let me put the insult where it belongs on the M$ team for fixing something that wasnt broken.
