What is Media Center Master?

Here is how Peter describes Media Center Master for those of you who don’t know what it is:

Smooth, powerful interface to organize your media collection.
Support for the built-in Windows Media Center Video Library strip (dvdid.xml) as well as MediaBrowser extension (mymovies.xml).
Movies, television, and adult title search from a variety of configurable meta data sources.
Built-in, fully-automated episode torrenting from multiple sources. Keep your T.V. series updated through the internet for free.
Full meta-data editor with tools to automate movie and T.V. episode renaming.
Theatrical trailer downloader with options for automatic re-encoding.
Extendable fetcher system allows other programmers to write fetchers — sample source code included in the forums.
Configurable to download actor/actress thumbnails and movie/T.V. posters, fan art, backdrops, and banners.
Flexible post-processing allows command-line operations after a movie title has been fetched — works great with Stark Covers.
…and a whole lot more…

What’s Included in this update?

Changelog:
issue #670 (fix): Subtitle downloading before license is validated
issue #622 (add): YouTube Trailers Possible?
issue #548 (fix): MCM downloads subtitles in wrong language
issue #429 (fix): Not fetching from subscene

Additionally, fixes were made to the licensing system and update tracker, which was causing many auto-update issues. Figured it was time for just a fully new installation package.

MCM bug fixes

I have been using MCM for a while now and I think it’s a great product. I haven’t tried the new premium version yet, but I will doing that over the next few days – so watch out for a review of that coming up very soon.

If you have Media Center, and you want a tool to help you to organise your collection, this is certainly the one to use.

The website doesn’t contain the very latest build, but if you already have a build installed, the auto-update should kick in and download and install it for you automatically.

Media Browser is a media aggregator plugin for Media Center that takes your recorded, digital, or ripped media and presents it in a simple, easyto use interface. Media Browser prides itself on delivering a fast, intuitive, mediarich experience for the whole family.

Highlights
  • Automatic metadata retrieval
  • Streaming latest online trailers
  • Media bookmarking (resume play)
  • Support for external players
  • Vodcast support (video rss feeds)
  • Third party plug-in architecture
  • Automatic updates
  • Custom view layouts
  • Multiple themes
  • Create random / full folder playlists

I love Media Browser – I have been using it for ages, and frankly I wouldn’t run Media Center without it!

Here is a brief run down of some of the updates – you really want to check out the complete changelog for more information:

Highlights:

  • Extended MediaInfo support with improved performance, detection and flexible custom image management through ImagesByName. Have a look here for details.
  • Various fixes for the High Quality Thumbnail plugin, improving performance and reliability
  • Default theme has been improved. Some new features have been added and various bugs have been squashed
  • Actor roles are now supported for TV Series through both Internet Providers as local metadata.
  • Internet Providers now fetch studios for movies and tv shows
  • Media files can now be deleted properly right after they have been played

Complete Changelog:

To see a full list of the tracker topics for these changes, have a look here.


Important Notes:

  • All Media Browser supporters will now have access to 3 very awesome plugins: Trailers, CoverArt and the pearl theme, you should get an email with your supporter key in the next few days.
  • Several plug-ins will require upgrades to work with this version. Be sure and check all your installed plug-ins for available updates.
  • It’s recommended to clear the cache after updating to Orion. Media Browser will likely rebuild anyway and SQLite users can benefit from a new optimized SQLite database file

You can download the latest version from here.

You also might want to download and use Media Center Master as well with Media Browser – they work great together.

Do you use these? If not, what do you use and why?

Release notes
v1.26 September 18, 2010 build 26110.406

  • Media Center Master is now a licensed product with both a free and premium version. Please see this licensing page for full details.
  • Issue #102: fixed: Download Missing Trailers tool supports nested folders now.
  • Issue #157: duplicate of issue #178.
  • Issue #172: fixed: thetvdb.com fetcher no longer downloads multiple posters for a season, occassionally downloading a banner over the poster.
  • Issue #175: fixed: clearing meta data and then clearing it again (or performing other kinds of actions) no longer shows errors.
  • Issue #178: fixed: blank meta data (no LocalTitle in mymovies.xml or SeriesName in series.xml) will cause Media Center Master to display blank entries in the media list that show errors when interacted with.
  • Issue #179: fixed: T.V. shows with ampersands was causing ampersand code to display in media list and other media applications.
  • Issue #180: fixed: movie list cache was not being written to disk on exit, so cleared titles were not staying cleared properly (and other oddities).
  • Issue #182: fixed: uTorrent manager was showing errors and generally not working.
  • Issue #188: fixed: multiple backdrop support is no longer dependent on fetcher priority.
  • Issue #189: fixed: multiple backdrops aren’t being downloaded upon certain circumstances (like no backdrops at all at one source, or if one fetcher didn’t match the movie title, but the other fetcher did). Additionally, multiple backdrop support handles failures with backdrop downloading much more gracefully now.
  • Issue #190: fixed: adjusted for isohunt.com HTML change.
  • Issue #192: fixed: Media Center Master resized and repositioned its layout several times on start-up, causing it to appear to flicker and dramatically reducing usability for a few moments across network connections.
  • Issue #193: fixed: absolute episode numbering at thetvdb.com was not working properly. It now works when ‘treat SEE as AAA’ is turned on.
  • Issue #195: fixed: left/right pane sizing was causing layout issues if Media Center Master was closed while its window was maximized.
  • Issue #2: added: the download parser now supports specials (when labeled using thetvdb.com’s “season 0″ method).
  • Issue #155: added: media list columns are now selectable (right-click the columns and you can toggle on/off visibility for any column). Column visibility is persistent and will save between launches of Media Center Master.
  • Issue #171: added: when using XBMC meta data generation, T.V. show posters and banners preference is now configurable.
  • Issue #174: added: video/media information XML support for MediaBrowser 2.2.7+.
  • Issue #181: added: added a tool to undo the XBMC wide T.V. show posters (restoring folder_bak.jpg).
  • Issue #185: added: the media list filter is no longer case-sensitive.
