6.1.4 Metadata Properties Parsing

What files is the new metadata properties parsing supported on.

I've tried creating properties files for both Recordings and Imported videos and can't get anything to display.

I've had a look in the 6.1.4.4 STV and can't see where any files are being read.

I know I must be missing something obvious, but how do I get this to work

It is for imported videos & music. I haven't had time to play with the metadata properties files yet... but, when you created your properties file, did you remove the import dir, wait until the rescan was done, then re-add the import dir & scan again? I haven't yet tried just rescanning w/o getting rid of the dir first.

Oh -- for videos, not all the metadata will be displayed yet in the default STV. Try things like the description, genre, and year. That might be all that the Video Detail screen shows for now.

Thanks Andy

It doesn't seem to work with just a re-scan, but does work on a newly added import directory.

are the metadata properties files similair to the .my files?

Added support for metadata properties parsing. This will extract metadata from .properties files of the same name as a media file
Does this mean it will extract it to display just like .my files or does it extract it into the wiz.bin?

They are going into the wiz.bin. Of course the question YOU want answered is can the data be searched? The search in the media browser view doesn't find anything as it defaults to only searching Title and Episode, but a quick change allows you to search on the fields you are after.

So I guess my next question is how do I convert .my files to .properties files so they can be imported into the wiz.bin? And then how would I make that quick change you mentioned to search?


I am definitely getting ansy here as searching fields of Imported Videos has been a big elusive feature that I kinda need...

I hope I get there soon and thanx for the response to my question...
