no other control freek out there that knows how to total format the files. I want to set up files permanently and have them very neat and have everything very organized. ALl features in recent xbmc compiles are basically all I could ask for. so current compile is last update for me atleast for a good while. Any help is much appreciated.

The imdb info comes straight from the website imdb.com I think. So I wouldn't know how you would customize that.

yeah I know that, but I read you could add images to files if imdb did not have any. Basically supplimenting the info that imdb did not supply. Here is what I thought happened. When you looked up imdb info and selected the information was then locally stored, so no internet access would be needed to allow it to work. So I was just thinking you could just write up the while imdb information for local files and use. No one else would have access to it but would be a personal database sort of thing. Hope this clears things up. If there is anyway to do this I would greatly appreciate it. Maybe I have to create a mock imdb server on one of my pcs then alter from then accordingly and point to look at my computer as imdb info. I hope this clears up what I want to do. IF I am totally wrong in some of my assumptions please let me know

adding pictures is easy if you have a folder and u wana make an image then name the the picture file folder.jpg and put it in the folder. If your just wanting to put a cover on a video file the take the picture file and name it what ever the video name is and replace the .jpg with tbn. Example if u have I have The Ring.avi then id rename the picture file to be The Ring.tbn . Get it? then when ur in xbmc it will show that as the cover for that movie.

Also i just found a neat little program to change the imdb date ... i just stumbled apon it so not sure if it works or not http://vrokolos.free...BMCDBVIEWER.exe
just open the MyVideos3.db file thats in the xbmc/albums/

try it out if ur trying to edit information
