eXtreme Movie Manager (XMM)

Redirected from 1 MEDIAPORTAL 1/17 Extensions/3 Plugins/My Films/External Catalogs/eXtreme Movie Manager (XMM)


    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:

    • Catalog type - Extreme Movie Manager
    • Catalog XML - select the XML file you exported from XMM (see above)

    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 v7.1.3.6 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.

    Supported Features

    Most My Films features are supported for XMM catalogs, including:

    • Local Trailers - if you add local  trailer files to XMM Trailer 1/2 fields they can be played in My Films
    • actor and other 'credits' or persons photos
    • fanart - only a single image per film since multiple images are not stored in a separate folder for each film
    • Watched status - displayed but updates can only be done in XMM

    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.

    Field Mapping

    Fields are listed by the field name in the xml, sorted by the My Films/AMC xml. Items in red are not currently exported or mapped and thus not displayed in My Films.   See below for a list of Fields in XMM not mapped or displayed in My Films.

    My Films also generates several fields when you open the plugin in MediaPortal:
