Okay,so I've been using YAMJ to Med8er for years and all of the sudden it stopped working. I loaded up this newer version and it appears I'm going backwards. At first it pulled up all the titles but would crash as soon as I would click on a title. I've re-installed java 32 and 64 mutiple times. Reinstalled framework. Rebooted system multiple times. Cleaned REG o f YAMJ multiple times. I'm using Windows 7 64bit.

All I get now is this when I run YAMJ. It freezes at this point. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I experienced all mentioned exceptions, but found the solution for all of them.
You don't need to repeat installation process but only perform cleanup.

Cleanup instructions:
1. Remove registry key found on HKCU\Software\YamjToMede8er
2. Remove your jukebox folder

If you perform only one part of the cleanup instruction you will get errors again.
Allways perform both and have only 32 bit java installed (having 64 bit machine).

Just untick the <Process All Titles> box in Process Options and only tick the new movie on the movie list on the left..

Also, in settings, set <recheck.XML> to False under <mjb> to stop periodic rescrapes.

will try that :)


  • Guest
did that...and it seems a little quicker :) BUT still not got "issues"

1- when i add or delete a movie in my drive (F:) and then open there any way for the software to monitor and refresh that folder on startup ? like what "tvrename" does ?

2- when deleting movie in F: and than scanning with y2m....the movie is still there( according to y2m anyway)  ???  ;D that is not normal....

3- why does yamj always rechecks existing videos on some movies....that retakes there anyway to skip existing videos for movies that have already been scanned?

1. As far as I'm aware there's not an automatic refresh in Y2M.

2. You need to check <Delete unused files from the jukebox> on the settings page. To make sure they are being deleted, you can look at the in the YAMJ jukebox directory (<Jukebox location>)

3. By default, YAMJ rechecks 30 days after a movie is first scanned. To disable, in <mjb> on the properties pane, set <recheck days> to 0 and <recheck.XML> to false.

Sorry to say this version does not work for me as hard as I try. I have done all the necessary steps and always give the same error details

Failed to compile stylesheet: 2 errors detected.

Going back to the previous STABLE version. >:(
