    Not yet - unfortunately 1.6.0 introduced several compatibility issues for MyFilms and real life has not been leaving Guzzi with much time lately to upgrade his development environment and generate a compatible release.
    However, it is 'close'. I have tested the 1.6.0 compatible version, and only found one bug so far, but it is a pretty major one and needs to be fixed before a public release.

    Ah... gut zu wissen :) I have been working for many, many years with the internal database and it still works fine for me. With more than 1000 well-maintained movie titles I can wait a few more days with the move to "My film". I'm starting again with the reorganization of the data to increase the hit rate of the grabber (change the name for the movie files in IMDb notification - tt1234567 for example). Thanks for the reply and good luck :)

    Are there any news about the 6.1 release? it took from December 2012 to September 2013 to go from 6.0.2 to 6.0.3. Are we are looking at similar time frames? I know you guys are doing all this for free and at your own time but at the moment we lack the functionality we used to have (see backdrops and proper grabber scripts) and can not upgrade to the latest MP due to incompatibility issues. I love the plugin and I am thankful for it, in fact I love it so much that hate to even think looking for other options but it seems that development rates have slowed down lately. Is there anything we can do as a community to help? I could contribute financially if that would make a difference, unfortunately I have no software development skills to offer. Just food for thought

    My Films 6.0 final released!
    (supports MediaPortal 1.2.x, 1.3 and 1.4)

    Have you ever wished you could use your own database management software with MediaPortal? With MyFilms you can!

    My Films combines the powerful features of movie catalog software with the superb media center features of MediaPortal. It incorporates many advanced movie catalog features into MediaPortal. Eight different movie catalog apps are supported out of the box. You do not need to re-scan your data and you can continue to use your current movie catalog app with My Films - or create a new one using the integrated AMC Updater (AMCU)

    In addition, My Films offers:
    • extended features for the popular Ant Movie Catalog (AMC) or for new catalogs created in My Films (AMC XML database format):
      • update in real-time (since they both use the same XML database)
      • update by field or multiple fields but never overwrite the data you wish to keep
      • batch/global updates for some/all records by field, value, etc using AMC Updater
    • built-in support for networks (centralized data, covers/posters, fanart and configs)
    • multiple databases - as many as you wish for different types of videos such as documentaries, home videos or even to keep your kids videos separate if you prefer (you can switch database easily within My Films)
    • multiple users - watched status, date watched user ratings (and thus favorites) are supported per user.
    • multiple configs (like profiles) for the same database with different filters/settings for different users
    • advanced search, sort, view or update by ANY field
    • integration with Trakt, Sub-Central, Online Videos (Trailers), and Browse the Web (to view related web pages for movies, cast and crew)
    and much, much more! Have a look at the extensive My Films wiki for an overview of all the features and many tutorials on how to setup and use them - it will help you a lot to get the most out of your personal My Films install !

    Before reporting any bugs, check the My Films wiki, My Films FAQ and the Issue Tracker (to see if it has already been reported/fixed).

    Feature Requests
    New Feature requests are evaluated based on:
    • the number of users who request them, star them in the Issue Tracker, or will benefit from the feature
    • how much testing/support you provide to My Films
    • and of course the difficulty in adding and maintaining the feature
    Skin Support
    Default skin files are provided for both 16x9 and 4x3 screen sizes. MyFilms auto detects the MP version you are using (1.2.x, 1.3.0 or 1.4.0) and installs the compatible Default skin files for you.
    My Films 6 requires skin updates to fully support all new features. Make sure, the skin you want to use does support the MP version you are using.

    Skins supporting My Films 6.0.x
    @Skinners - See Skinning My Films or Skin Changes. Please leave a PM to add your skin to the supported skin list.
    Note: There are no required skin changes for 6.0.3 - however, optional changes are documented in the wiki, and skins may start skinning 6.1.0 features available in Test Mode whenever they wish.

    If you are able to provide translations for new languages or want to improve existing ones - see My Films 6 - Language (string) files/Translations. Thanks for your support !
