If you are reading this topic its because you have bought, or going to buy one of the mede8er players available in the market

First and foremost the tutorial only tends to show the basics of the mede8er players, theres more settings and features available to use apart from what is written here....enjoy

Organize your library 

the x3d players allow to make a jukebox, a wall of organized movies to quick select and watch the movie from the remote or IOS device with appropiate app.

The x3d makes scan of the movies inside your hard drive, but for that it need to follow one simple rule :

Every movie needs to be in is own individual file, see the example :

1- root folder
2- movies folder  (2D, 3d, dvd, concerts)
3- individual movie folder
4- movie file



See the remote, make sure you are familiar with it, the Menu KEY  in particular

In case you want to make the jukebox follow the next steps



25- go to media library



26- if you use internal/external hard drives, move to step 29

27-  network (samba ) in case you want to streaming movies from pc or NAS
28- NFS  in case you want to use this  protocol to streaming from pc or NAS





 NETWORK (Samba) EXAMPLE

27-go to  workgroup



27-B this folder is called synlogy is shared by a server  or NAS  in my network, you can do the same with pc, the windows shares folder must be visible in same network, with read and write permissions turned ON.





27-C Put username and password and  choose save to shortcuts, and next time you can access to MY shortcuts folder






If everyting went  accordingly you should able to see your shares folders (pc or NAS) in your X3D menu


29- heres few shares files in network (THIS ARE ROOT FOLDERS ) , in case you using internal or external hard drive you are seeing the same.

 



30- access files and press menu key , now you can add to favorites or scan jukebox

Now that you already add movies to favorites lets move on:

32-  go to favorites



33- press MENU key, and  you can scan jukebox  here or like we did in step 30 and 31 (IT WORKS BOTH WAYS)




Manual configuration of jukebox scan ( in case movie cover is wrong )


34- go to  media library



35- go to folder and choose movie individually to change press MENU KEY and press EDIT






36- To change or add new cover manually go to scrape





37 - you will have  selection of one or more movies to choose, pick  the correct one




38- all this settings can be changed, make sure you press SAVE before leave the file

My gut feeling says you're scanning the wrong folder.

Step 32 says: "32- go to favorites". It should be read as: "32- go to favorites and highlight your movies folder". Then go to step 33.
You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink.
