Thank you, Mognons, very kind of you.

You can access the file from my dropbox folder:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2449859/immagini/mede8er%20themes/Mede8er.cfg.zip (3 Mb)

Don't waste too much time, thu, I was excited by finding your application because I was fighting with the default favorite list organization of my X3 that was "out-of-standards" compared to Media Library one. But it's nothing really of vital importance. :)
I'd like the idea to also personalize the folder image but maybe it's just related to gender and not to actual folders.

Anyway many thanks, have a nice day. :)

P.s. I've just seen the screenshot of your favorite screen. Are you italian by any chance? :)
P.p.s. Yes, you are. Just had a look to your profile. :)
P.p.p.s. Non perderci troppo tempo se č una cosa complicata. :)

Got it!
Bad news first: the format is not that easy to handle. Dunno what happens if modified and restored to mede8er. I guess it contains some binary code, but also…
Good news: there is something resembling your favorite, in plain XML style, but I think that they really are your "Network Shortcut" shares and not your favorites…
You may try, at your own risk, to edit the section between <Storage> and </Storage>, changing the content of the tag <Timestamp> for each item: Timestamp is a numeric value representing the date and time the share (or favorite) was added to the system and it used to ORDER the items. Just change the last digits on the the right so the progression reflects the order that you want.
Backup your cfg first then cross your fingers and… use Text Edit to open the file, then search for "<Storage" (senza virgolette!).

Good luck!

PS SI.
PPS Si, infatti.
PPPS Non ti preoccupare, giornata fiacca al lavoro… :D

hmmm... you know what?
I unzipped the config file of the link and Finder automatically recognized the file as another zipped one (transl: in pratica lo ha scompattato automaticamente due volte) and now I see a folder structure with several files inside.
One of these, inside a folder called dvdplayer, is called FavLink_NFS and has the following text:

Code: [Select]
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<Storage>
    <Device>7</Device>

</Storage>

that is exactly my favorite list. :)

So now the point is to discover what kind of compression the mede8er.cfg config file has and everything is done.

Now a further curiosity could be if it's possible to change the folder aspect, maybe playing with genre. But maybe it's something I could do manually on Med too?

Good job, I didn't think about a double-zipped file! It looks uncompressed, may a tar file or similar…

Sure you can change the icon representing each favorite, use the menu and change the "genre" of the favorite.

mmm, maybe a little more than just moral…  8)


Take a look at the attached screenshot: does it feel somewhat familiar?

It IS a tar archive, by the way...
