    Hi community,

    I am further testing out MP2, and there are three questions I have:

    1. When importing my local video folder with some ripped DVDs and Blurays and many video files, I get a lot of files named 000001.something in the video navigation menu. It seems that MP2 lists all files alphabetically, and the ripped DVD and Bluray folders each contain these files, leading to the describen scenario. What can I do to solve this issue?
    2. Is there a way to exclude specific video folders from the import?
    3. Can I play physical DVD or Bluray discs directly with some menu option? I noticed that discs are offered to be played automatically after inserting them, but after declining autoplay, I didn't find an option to start the disc again.

    Thank you in advance,

    Astronaut

    No idea, because I'd never backup a blu-ray on my harddisk. Can you not directly store it as mkv in x265? Then you'd have the same quality and probably less than 10% of file size, just the menus are gone ...

    2. Is there a way to exclude specific video folders from the import?
    No, there is no way.

    3. Can I play physical DVD or Bluray discs directly with some menu option? I noticed that discs are offered to be played automatically after inserting them, but after declining autoplay, I didn't find an option to start the disc again.
    Should work over browse media (at least with DVD's), when selecting the optical disc, it should automatically start playing.

    Have you tried it lately? I am using a test version so maybe there is a difference but for me either the DVD playback following the initial intro. does not display the menu (blackscreen) and therefore is hung or the menu displays but is completely unresponsive to navigation even mouse clicks, either way no playback. These are DVDs that I can play with MP1 or MPC-BE.

    Haven't tried it for while. I give it a try later, just need to find a DVD somewhere :)
    Edit: I found one. Indeed I can not even focus any entry in the DVD menu, so an issue was introduced at a certain point. It worked well a few versions before. @henso can you remember any change, that could have caused issues with DVD and BR menus?

    I can see part of the issue, it's related to InputManager changes which I can fix. There seems to be a separate issue with some of the skins (at least Nereus and BlueVision, I haven't tests WMC) where input is only captured some of the time even after the input fix, everything works perfectly in the default skin though so I'm currently investigating the difference. I expect there's an overlapping control somewhere stealing the input, I'll let you know.

    I've pushed fixes for both issues.
    @ge2301 Nereus and BlueVision were including FullScreenContentVideoKeyBindings.inc instead of FullScreenContentDVDKeyBindings.inc in FullscreentContentDVD.xaml which was causing intermittent issues with DVD navigation (on top of the issues with the InputDeviceManager). I guess this was just a copy and paste error so I updated them, all seems to be working OK now.

    Strange, I remembered everything was working well, when I designed the Nereus DVD screen and I even remember I worked on the KeyBindings. Maybe there was a merge failure or something unintended. Thanks for fixing.

    Will the fix be in the next release or will a patch be available foe current version?

    Hi, must be really a while, cuz I can not remember any post from you ;) But might be also that I joined the team too late. Yes, there will be many things. Main reason is simply, that MP2 is not developed based on MP1. I for example never used MP1. I tried it lately to test voice control and was shocked about many inconsistancies in...

    Great work and release!! Contrats to all involved developers :):D I installed MP1 initially, but didn’t get along with it. Many things were not intuitive, too frumpy and the gui had hardcoded dependencies to plug-ins, some buttons didn’t work even without a note due to that. Same for player controls, why do I see always play and pause...

    There is currently only the reimport function, that can be used individually for media items, that were wrongly found or updated. There is no function yet to check, if the nfo content changed, it would take far too much time. But I'd also like a function to generally reimport all media items once again.
