Out of interest do you have any info on the db files generated by the Mede8er or is this something that you discourage (I'm not too bothered if that is the case)

Version 1.0.0.8 now available for download.

New feature. This version will generate (if required) and update the Mede8er.db file in your Jukebox - so no need to use the Scan Folder option on the Mede8er itself. Whenever the program adds a new movie to your jukebox it updates the Mede8er.db file at the same time. If you are using the Days Old functionality to maintain a New Movies only jukebox it will also remove the move from your Mede8er.db file when it is over the specified number of days old.

I've also added a Regenerate Mede8er.db button. This buttons does exactly the same job as the Scan Folder option on the Mede8er. It rebuilds the Mede8er.db database based on the films in the jukebox. You shouldn't really need to use this but its there if for some reason the program crashes or the database gets out of sync with the contents of the jukebox folder.

It occurred to me that there is a possible omission in this program. If you were to delete a movie from your system the movie would not get removed from your jukebox. In a future version I will probably add an option to scan your jukebox for "missing" movies and allow you to delete them if required.

The ZIP file now contains two additional files. These must be copied to the same directory from which you wish to run Mede8erJukebox.exe

One thing worth checking is that you do have the .Net Framework 4.5 on that machine

Latest download is V1.0.0.7 19Feb ?? Where is V9?

I updated .Net from V4 to V4.5 and now no crash but your GUI shows V1.0.0.7 19Feb so not sure what is going on.

Version 1.0.0.10 now available
Adds a new button called Orphaned Films. This compares the contents of your jukebox with the contents of your Movie Locations. It then lists any films that it finds in the jukebox that are not in your movie locations. I added this as a film will remain in the aggregated jukebox even if you've deleted it. You still have to manually delete the film from the Jukebox - I may add this as an option to a future version. Note - if your films are located on removable media and you use this button when the media isn't attached then you will probably a) get an error message b) get films showing as orphans even though you haven't deleted them.

These are great ideas, because even with the internal aggregator there could be need of "fix up" tools.  So you might want to add a "paired up" deleter, a tool that  removes entries from the jukebox, and it's source.

It would take the pressure off the internal code having to  do  this....or just inspire Mede8er1 to do it as well. ;D

Will probably look at that. Most of the ideas are coming from my experience on an HTPC where I kept my meta data apart from the actual films. I thought for years that I had a particular film not realising that I must have deleted it until I went to play it one afternoon.

Version 1.0.0.11 Now available.

Building on from previous version. If you use the Orphaned Movies option to locate movies in the jukebox that are missing from your movie shares there is now a delete option. Select the Orphaned Movie in the listview and then click the Delete Movie button that appears.

The delete button only deletes from your specified jukebox location. It deletes the about.jpg, folder.jpg and moviename.xml files. It will remove the directory as well if it is empty having deleted the meta data. In addition the Mede8er.db file is updated.
