eXtreme Movie Manager is one of the most advanced Movies/TV Series/Actors collection manager around. It can catalog movies stored on your Hard Disk and removable devices in seconds, with all information about codecs, resolutions etc. automatically. XMM imports movie information and covers directly from many different online databases (over 100).
Export XML - the default export file for XMM is
XML-Export.xml. It is stored by default in the FileAviSearchPath set in File Manager, but you can select any folder when exporting.
Use the Setup Wizard:
The wizard presets most settings for you, however you should verify them, especially the paths set for displaying images in Artwork Setup.
Note: My Films will automatically select the correct paths for artwork if you are using XMM v126.96.36.199 or later. In previous versions, XMM did not have a 'general' folder for each database. It had separate folders for artwork images
\[DBname]_Covers, etc. So if you are using an older version, you must set the paths for covers, fanart etc in Artwork Setup.
Most My Films features are supported for XMM catalogs, including:
Note: You can use My Films to download fanart images and add them to sub folders where your XMM fanart is stored. These images will then display in My Films, but not in XMM.
