XBMC Tutorial 2: Adding Movies To Videos Library




What do you think about this video?

theusernameisblank: my tv tag will not show up..all the options are on for show it. I added the file source and told it was tv? still nothing´╗┐

as96it: I just downloaded XBMC and would like to know if i can use subtitles and what's the best way to import them. And thanks a lot, this video is really helpful ´╗┐

Chris Bell: Great video. Am I right thinking you set your playlists up (genre etc) on your desktop before adding it to XBMC like you did on this tutorial, then do these playlists show up in the VIDEOS folder? I'm guessing the movies also appear in alphabetical order in the MOVIES folder too? Also, will that automatic update at startup menu you mention in this tutorial add and remove new movies or is this something I have to do manually every time?´╗┐

quidsup: XBMC's default behaviour is to store images in its own SQLite database. You might be able to add image location to the movie NFO file, but XBMC is still going to cache the images in its settings folder

Eric B.: Thanks! Awesome tutorial!

Toonyman: how do you bloody! get the artworks and thumbs nails to there own separate folders? Like movies example: Batman in Folder with Movie Cover and Artwork. when you scan xbmc it should upload or download the images to there own respected movie folders. kinda like treaty each movies folder like a DVD Box you got you cover, the movie, nfo,and screen shots in the back.

xShapeyX: How do I get the "Movies" tab on my homescreen? I managed to get it there before, but I somehow messed it up now. I've only got TV Shows left, but I also want Movies on my home screen (instead of going through Videos)

quidsup: I've read about it but not tried it. I was kinda put off with it being based on Kubuntu. Cheers

BuzzinH: great thanks for the video! :-) i love xbmc! Im assuming these features are new in "Frodo" (xbmc12)? and are not available in xbmc 11?

Dan Keaveney: it's not on mine unless quids has got the beta

pizzadude808: Nice tutorial.

quidsup: You could try XBMCbuntu, its a Linux distro with XBMC working out of the box. For the remote its more a question of if the receiver is Linux compatible. I've tried four remote's in Linux - three worked straight away, and one I had to read a wiki page to get it working. Im about to start doing some more XBMC tutorials later this month and I'll cover setting it up in Linux.

Jack D.: Wow. This software looks beautiful and imagine that you can take all information from IMDB! Nice to know about it, pretty useful, and thank you for the wallpaper, don't forget to post in every video. Thank you.

St Alphonsus: Great tutorial.. Have you reviewed or used LinuxMCE? I'm interested in both the media and automation features.

TheLolipro: Can you please tell us pros and cons of LinuxMCE over XBMC?

quidsup: Im a bit behind with finding that out as I don't have a bluray drive yet. One program I've heard of is MakeMKV. Cheers

The Watcher: Turn on Captions, go to 4:31, read till 4:35..... dat caption lol

quidsup: You mean the cursor? I've done a couple of vids on how to change the mouse cursor

shafnet: Ahhah sorry mate ... I meant streaming live from the internetz ;)

quidsup: No problems here with 1080 @ 60P. Must be a hardware issue

PC Gear: just one question i'm having a problem about the tv shows it wont show up on list please help. thank you

Himat Bhatti: works fine on my windows PC, but would work on ATV2 with frod0 12 on it. what am i doing wrong?

Quinn Reiswig: Thank you for the help Quidsup!

DigiTM73: If I've never had any experience with linux is XBMC still easy to setup? Also concerned that my Logitech Harmony One won't work in Linux. However do want to avoid Windows and have the HTPC a much quicker varient.

shafnet: Yeah I've been getting back into XBMC over the past few weeks. Loving Navi-X but have not mastered Live TV yet. More pointers for you ;) Keep up the series loving it so far !

Cash Shew: i donno how to setup samba server :(

quidsup: Cheers. I never really got on with XBMC 11, I've been using 12 for the past couple of months and it seems so much easier, especially getting surround sound working. The big difference Im aware of is Audio engine has been completely overhauled.

MrMugenwii: where do all the thumbnails save into? it seems as if every time i add my usb with movies it has to look for the movie posters all over again... can i just copy the thumbnails into the directory of my movies? how do i do that?

quidsup: I purchased each and everyone of them. Cough Take a look at this video on my channel: youtu(dot)be/Wqa7THLxtBo

JonathanIsrael708: My Ubuntu installs always has problems browsing workgroups/ samba shares. Is there a fix for that?

dc8povi: How long will you make the tutorial (parts)? Can you include your favorite add-ins?

shafnet: Hi Quids.... do you happen to have a howto on the ROM collection browser for MAME/SNES et al ?

Dan Keaveney: Whats your. Xbmc theme called quids

quidsup: Cheers mate. I had a quick play around trying to get my mates computer working with Live TV addon for XBMC with a DVB-S and Dual DVB-T card. It was my first time trying to setup a DVB-S card, and he uses Win7 just to make things more difficult for me. After an hour of stumbling around blindly I got the DVB-T card working. I can't remember the addon now, but the TV card program was one of the worst apps I've used. Far too many settings and no explanation of anything

Rishi Bepat: well that is excellent, but i dont have TV SHOW mentioned anywhere, how to resolve this?

Affan Khan: I like air crash investigation as well!

Tha Ctha: Dude you are awesome :)! You have everything with my PI! Your tutorial for deluge was still the best tutorial out there! Keep on doing this :D!

quidsup: Ah ok. Well I got iPlayer, ITV, and Ch4 players working fine with addons

Cavey1977: quidsup... What NAS are you using? It looked liked a linux based platform, especially with the SMB connection. I want to buy one, because I'm bored of having to boot my PC up each time to stream. I heard Synology make good ones???

Harouni Tarek: Thank You Man !! You're really awesome ^^

PhantomTurtle: I believe the older versions had a different theme. The newer and STABLE version has this theme.

JonathanIsrael708: Was that a genre titled 'XXX'?? Lol

matt lidbetter: Thank you very much for the tutorials. As i am just setting up, i am trying to put my bluray collection together. would you know the best program to copy them on to XBMC. Many Thanks

Affan Khan: FIRST!

PhantomTurtle: I think that's the default theme.

Ograws: great video quids thanks for sharing and keep up the good work

quidsup: Cheers mate

quidsup: Thats right its the default theme in XBMC 12

quidsup: No I haven't found that one, I'll have to play around some more. Cheers

quidsup: Its a custom build PC with Ubuntu Server: youtu(dot)be/-5Z_-3EBIHE It cost me a bit less than a lot of the NAS Enclosures, and I've got the flexibility of up to 8x 3TB drives with some extras like SabNZB downloader and Sickbeard running on it.
