Hi, I use and love StreamedMP but whilst it's fantastic for TV series and films, it's useless for sports (presumably because sports don't feature on IMDb).

So I'd like to be able to browse my sports folder to manually select video files to play. How can I do this with StreamedMP?

Thanks!

    Could you be more specific please? I added "Videos" to the StreamedMP menu and in MP config I added my sports folder to the "Videos" section, but when I clicked on it on the MP menu, the menu slid away and then just reappeared.

    Hmm I think I've already done that. I've added the right folder to the "Video Folders":

    And I've got "Videos" on my StreamedMP main menu:

    But when I start MP click on "WATCH YOUR VIDEOS", I just get chucked back to the main MP menu. I also cannot find where the option for "Share view", where is that?

    I can't get to Videos, even with the default skin. Just stays on the main menu. :(

    Pictures does the same actually.


    EDIT: Aaaargh, I'm an idiot - I'd disabled the Videos plugin to try to make MP start faster a while back. Turned it on again and it seems to be working fine. Thanks very much for the info!

    Hi folks,

    I have also a question regarding to browse files and / or folders in the "My Videos" plugin.

    I have defined more than one video folders in the Mediaportal configuration:
    1. Music Videos
    2. Documentary
    3. Skateboard-Videos
    4. New Downloads
    Is it possible to create a menu - better a submenu - pointing to each of this folders? In other words: For each folder I would like to have single menu-item.

    Thanks for help and many many thanks for this great skin!
    Fred
