Cambelious wrote:That would be the idea. Have a checkbox (or something) to enable automatic saving of dvdid.xml and DvdInfoCache, and maybe a button to save dvdid's for individual movies (as I sometimes don't like to enable automation).

<>< wrote:What do you mean save dvdid's for individual movies? What i'm thinking is everytime you hit save it would create a mymovies.xml and a dvdid.xml w/ corresponding metadata in the dvdinfocache folder.
<>< wrote:Well, this really seems like an easy addition (although i don't know how real dvd id values are generated and i would create my own), so it could prob be added in a day or so, just provide me w/ the information and i could code it for a future release.

<>< wrote:well this was pretty easy, i've already added it in there, just need to add it to options for you to specify the location of where you want the DvdInfoCache xml files saved.
I look for an already existing *.dvdid.xml file, if one exits i use the same one otherwise i create a metabrowser.dvdid.xml file with my own dvdid.
I then update the NAME tag in dvdid.xml to that of the LocalTitle
I then save/overwrite the xml file in the DvdInfoCache location (or whatever location you specify in options to store the files).
Just let me know about the genre/studios etc or whatever tags that are not needed/used by DVD Library to display any info on the screen.
