Hi everybody,

I've created an app to manage my collection.  Basic features are the following:
* Renaming of CD/DVD tracks of ripped content using e.g. tracklisting from websites
* Searching, creating, manipulating, removing duplicates etc. etc. of mp3 playlists (incl. Virtual DJ support)
* Searching and downloading CD/track cover art (bulk option - leave it running to get covers for all your tracks)
* Bulk scraping of movie info, renaming files, stripping/replacing unwanted text from media filenames, creating/modifying your About image template, Bulk re-creation of about & Folder images using a new/changed template without re-scraping previously scraped content. etc. etc.

Current version: 1.0.0.18 (28 Jan 2016)

Download link: http://www.spectrumsound.co.za/mmcorg/MMCOrg.zip
Help File link: http://www.spectrumsound.co.za/mmcorg/Help.pdf
Readme file link: http://www.spectrumsound.co.za/mmcorg/Readme.txt

Please note that the old links are inactive and therefor the auto version checking and download links in the application and at the bottom of the old Readme.txt file will not work anymore - these were updated in application version 1.0.0.17 and the Readme.txt file updated on 30 June 2014.

Download and unzip the application to your desired location and use it by running the unzipped .exe file (MMCOrg.exe) - no installation required. If you are "upgrading" to a new version, simply replace the old .exe file with the newly downloaded file. The default set-up will have you up and running immediately, but the possibilities are endless.  Create your own about image template or modify one of the defaults and start to enjoy your MEDE8ER even more.

Please use and abuse, comment in this thread, but please remember, I created it for my own personal use, I will make changes and do bug fixes on my own discretion and time.

I have also compiled a help file (PDF), but remember that all the controls (buttons, check-boxes, fields, memos etc.) have hints - hover over a control and more info will be displayed.

If you are unable to download the files, please post in this thread, or send me a PM.

This is a freeware application, but if you find it useful, please support ongoing and future development by making a donation using the PayPal button on the caption bar (top-right) of the application.  All donations are much appreciated.

Enjoy
SuperDIY

Is this an effective replacement for YAMJ?
I've got YAMJ working, but it's WAY slow (1min per file) despite internet HDD. May be cos I'm on OSX n I only seems to get 20MB/s throat on USB connection....whatever, Im keen for an alternative.

Wow, this has LOADS of potential. It's way easier to use that YAMJ, and far more flexible. However, it's quite clearly not meant for public release, and it doesn't handle series at all.
It's a one-stop-shop for file renaming, folder management, cover/about creation, etc. Whilst complex, it's simpler than YAMJ even if just cos one can clearly see what's going on thro all the options.

@SuperDIY: this is SO worth progressing. As share/donorware it may even be very worthwhile for you. There are many issues tho:
- batching really doesn;t seem to work
- single images are better, but even then "choose folder" popups appear in strange places
- it really needs something for series

Wow!  Took it for a test spin this afternoon.  Looks like it could have a great deal of potential.  Thanks for all your hard work!

The displayed "link" always stays the same, describing the file initially uploaded.  If you follow the link you will get the latest file though.

Check the readme.txt file first, if you are scared to download the bigger application.

  buttons for images were disabled for non-local files.

* Added options to resize photos and to create thumbnails of images. (Photos tab)

New version uploaded today (14 Dec 2012).

Changelog extract:
Version 1.0.0.9: (14 Dec 2012)

* Updated screen scraping code to support changes made to the various webpages.
* Movie Images - Added feature to use IMDB poster when no poster can be found on
  www.movieposterdb.com.
* Movie Images - Added option to automatically create a sub-folder with the name equal
  to the selected movie title. The movie will be moved into the created folder and all
  the created files and images will also be saved in the created folder. This eliminates
  the need to do a filename cleanup and "copy to folder" action before creating "about"
  images - this can now be done in a more foolproof single step.
