Windows 7

So, what's better, YAMMM or MediaBrowser ??

Or is there something even better than those ??

Personally, I prefer YAMMM, but both do a good job..

Both are very good apps. But they are very much different....

Yammm is a service that takes advantage of the 'Movie Library' introduced into 7MC (Win7 Media Center) with the downloading of DVDID & folder data.

MediaBrowser is a 3rd part VMC/7MC application for viewing and collecting MetaData and displaying in it's own style.

Both Yammm and MediaBrowser work well together too

With YAMMM you can get the SYNOPSIS whilst the movie is playing.

Can you do that with MB ??

I have both installed and set up, but they both have better points than the other.

MB is so customisable as to be too complex !!

I'm not over-sure what you mean

Yammm runs as a service, meaning that it is always active and checking certain folders (movie folders) for changes and updating if needed. MediaBrowser is a stand-alone source that downloads data as you need it, meaning that if you have a particular folder/movie selected it will continue to recieve more information.

Hi OS.

What I meant was, YAMMM is good as it seems to be more integrated with WMC and you can view the metadata about the video file whilst the file is playing via the i button on the remote.

MB gives a lot more information about the video file, as is way more customisable, which can be a bad thing as there are too many options, but, correct me if I'm wrong, you can't bring up the information via the i button when it's playing.

Also, it appears that you have to have additonal software to supplement MB's information, such as metabrowser, or Media Center Master, or both.

I like MB for the amount of information available, but it can be a bit of overkill, as chances are, you know what the film is about before yuo even watch it.

YAMMM is good, but I'm waiting or v1.2 so that it supports TV shows, then I'll decide on what I want to use.

Just my tuppence-worth !!

You are correct :)

I'm also waiting for v1.2 as mikinho has hinted towards some hidden features within 7MC that he's wanting to take advantage of
