Hi,

I currently u se W7 MCE with Mediabrowser and one of the great bits is that MediaBrowser can access the genres and cast details. This means I can have a movie in "Adventure", "Action" and "Sci-Fi" via the use of shortcuts but only have 1 copy of the movie. These are obtained from the internet using MetaBrowser and it puts the details in an XML file, I then have an application that processes the XML file and creates shortcuts to the source folders

Does Media Portal support the use of genres or is there a plugin available that does this. If it doesn't support the XML file, can it work with shortcuts to source folders:

e.g.
\\myserver\gernres\Action\Avatar\ points to \\myserver\movies_a\Avatar\
\\myserver\gernres\Sci-Fi\Avatar\ points to \\myserver\movies_a\Avatar\

Many thanks in advance

Bobby

    Hi,

    i cant tell you if you can use the Movieinformation you already downloaded for your Moviez but everything else should be possible with "Moving Pictures" Plugin.
    Newest Version of Movingpictures , some Information about the Plugin LINK.
