Adding mkv movies is a very nice feature. I added around 70 mkv movies but only about half show up in the 'movies' category. It looks like when you initially add the folder with the movies that your application is downloading metadata for each movie. Each of my movies is stored in seperate subfolder that also contains metadata that was downloaded using Media Center Master. Would it be possible for your application to grab the existing metadata in each movie subfolder??

Are you using the dvdid.xml or the mymovies.xml ? I did think of that, but didn't get a chance to add that yet.

Great update to a fantastic piece of software.  Since we are on the topic of movies, a very common naming format that has wide scraper support is:

\Movies\Movie Name (2010)\movie.name-720p-group.mkv
\Movies\Another Movie (2007)\another movie-dvdrip-group.mkv

Would it be possible to add an option to use the subfolder name for themoviedb lookup?
Great product!

That's a good idea.  Most likely I will have it check the parent folder name if the file name doesn't match.

I can't over emphasize how much a quick response is appreciated.  Falling back to the parent directory is a good idea and keeps things very unattended!

One other observation.  Many of us leave the filenames untouched as it is a good way to retroactively search for subtitles, etc.  Hence the need for parent folder name scraping...  It appears as though your currently displayed title for movies is the filename minus the extension.  It might be ideal to have the displayed title be the scraped title.  For example, I currently have the following:

\Movies\Movie Name (2010)\group.Movie Name.mkv

In Movies, when sorted by title it displays the proper artwork and metadata but displays the title as "group.Movie Name" and is sorted as G (group) and not M (Movie Name).

This is an excellent product! Definitely going to buy it at the end of my 30 days!

Here's a few things that I would love to see though:

1. A separate movies strip from TV called Movies that hides the default movies one but with the same options available.2
2. Info button on the remote allowing manual lookup of meta data with a nice screen to force this for those times where nothing matches automatically. (for Series, episodes, and Movies)
3. Maybe add trailers functionality at some later date but not really necessary :)

This is a great and simple upgrade to the standard wmc functionality! Well worth it!

#1 I definitely agree! And it would be great to have the directories to watch actually be able to specify if the directory is movies or otherwise.
#2 Love it! Would really love it to show the files that it couldn't recognize in a folder in that folder (i.e. if it can't recognize an episode of Jericho in the Jericho folder it should show up under that series anyhow and let me info and fix it.

Other thing I'd like to request is in the settings tool is when adding network shares, we need to be able to manually type it in because MS's network section is useless to actually find computers in the network.

In 1.6.16 on the Interface Options while in WMC on the number of days of scheduled records to retrieve you have a grammer issue "Search for artwork for new scheduled shows that where series hasn't been recorded yet. ..."

This should probably read "Search for artwork for scheduled shows where episodes have not been previously recorded yet and artwork is not cached. ..."

Or something along those line, but either way you probably want to fix the "that where" issue...

Thanks for adding the feature!

Don't bother with mymovies.xml, they are now being encrypted and have been dropped or are in the process of being dropped by all the major metadata scrapers. The new common file name that is being used is movie.xml.

After installing today's update, i checked out some of the new appearence features (unwatched header, day banner) and it was all good, until i stopped and restarted the service...

At that point, most of my files were unidentified (except my .wtv files)
I tried everything I could think of and nothing, so i uninstalled and reinstalled.

Now all my TV is identified, but most of my movies are not. I dont know whats the problem, as they were fine before.

Some examples:
J:\HD Movies\13 Assasins.mkv
J:\HD Movies\Black Swan.mkv
J:\HD Movies\Hugo.mkv
J:\HD Movies\The Karate Kid.mp4
J:\HD Movies\Mothers Day (2010).avi

I uninstalled again, installed version 1.6.17, nothing, did the update again, still nothing :(

Any suggestions?

Thank you

Fernando

I let it wait for a while and it was able to get most of the meta data. Still some that didn't come down that i had to force.

Could we get a change log since the last beta?

Is dvdid.xml file use in as an example?

FYI.... I'm leaving for a long vacation tomorrow so I probably won't be as responsive for a while.....

I still haven't done anything with the local dvdid.xml files. I realize this will majorly help with movie matching... just haven't gotten around to it yet. I'll try to work on it as soon as I can.

Fernado: What I've done is put the year in brackets: Top Gun (1986).mkv

By doing this I get almost 100% success especially with the latest version which is even more accurate. All of the ones that previously failed if the year is there pick up and are automatically recognized. (WTVs still have issues if there isn't meta data in them already)  If I take off the year that accuracy drops to about 80%.

Hope that helps!

Can't wait for dvdid.xml support. It's going to take it to 100% because then I can just use media center master and it will get them all for me if needed.

If it wrote the dvdid.xml files as well so that on uninstall/reinstall it could find the info, that would be even better.

And if the forcing tool in media center allowed entry of the id from imdb directly then we could force it like I do with media center master, and never have to force it again because of the dvdid.xml file.

Thanks John,

The thing is I wasn't having this problem before. All my movies were successfully identified in the previous version. I have hundreds of movies so finding the year and renaming all to include this is too much work.

Hopefully whatever caused this will be fixed soon.


Thanks again!

Fernando

Use media center master and tell it to rename with the year on it.

It does an excellent job of meta dataing and fixing everything.

Then recorded tv will have no problems, and when it supports dvdid.xml files it will use those from media center master too.
