Movies not auto-alphabetized using xml file

Here's my setup in a nutshell: - videos and movies.xml in top-level directory - xml file contains basic <...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

@rilex: that did it! Data from the .nfo files now appear as expected in the grid view info bubble. Very much appreciated.

Two final questions: 1) do I need to keep the .tgmd files in the directory (i.e., what purpose do they serve?); and 2) if so, what's their MIME type?

Thumbgen .nfo Data Not Appearing in Grid View Info Bubble

First things first: thanks a ton for movie sheets support! After some Parallels/Thumbgen gymnastics, I'm cranking out movie sheets with ease. I'm having a problem, however: data from the auto-generated .nfo file doesn't appear in the "info bubble" in grid view. Only the actual filename. Pl...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

@WilDD: first and foremost, congratulations on, and thank you for a great product. One humble feature request: search. (My wife has 100s of DVDs, and scrolling v. searching becomes very laborious, very quickly.) If this feature already exists, and I'm just missing it, please let me know.
