  1. One of my favorite features from another home theater software I use is shared libraries. My friends and I like the ability to share and stream content from each other. Are there any plans at Media Browser to add the ability to load multiple servers to your library? Here are a few suggestions: The ability to add multiple servers to Media Browser Theater The ability to add multiple servers to apps...like iPad Integrate all libraries, so they are mixed into one giant collection An indicator on the movies that would be streamed vs local An indicator on the movie from what server it came from. So you can call your friend and discuss the movie you watched from their collection Adding non-editable metadata to your local server, so you can still apply maximum allowed parental rating to users Instead of loaning my movies out to friends and trying to remember who has what, this is a much safer and easier method. I really enjoy using Media Browser and feel these features would be extremely valuable to other users. Thank you for your consideration.
  2. Hello Guys, I didn't know where to place this so I placed it here. If it needs to be moved, please feel free to do so. Alright, Let me get to it. I just decided to get an XBOX as an extender to use with Windows Media Center and Media Browser Classic. As we all know XBOX does not play MKV files. All my files are MKVs. I would like to write a script or use an existing one with minor modification to mass convert all my movies and tv series from MKV to MP4. I am not sure what I do know about MKV to MP$ to be true so I am asking for some help. I have read several threads and everyone has their own take on this. This is what I know so far. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong. MP4 must only contain AAC or AC3 tracks to be compatible with all devices. Converting MKV to MP4 is a resource hog and it is super slow. To speed the process MKV can just change the container to MP4 which is super fast. A lot of MKVs are encoded in H.264 which means the video part does not need to be re-encoded. It can just be copied to the new container. Also there will be no quality lost. Now if you have an MKV file with a DTS track, you may want to change the video container but remux the audio to AC3 or AAC. But AC3 requires the user to have a receiver. Otherwise, it will be force to be transcoded. AAC is the most common track. It will playback in all devices. Someone suggest to add an AAC track as well as AC3 to all MP4s to ensure that the file does not require transcoding ever. Also if someone has already done that, by all means, share the info. Edit: I would not have a chance to proof read so please ignore all grammar. I have to run to a meeting. Thanks,
  3. Hi, I'm finding it takes an awfully long time to start streaming wtv files from a windows 7 64 bit computer to a now tv box is there a known delay in streaming as it goes at an absolute crawl but using next pvr works faster and as such do people prefer using next pvr when trying to stream over the network or not?

    Codec question

    I use MB to play media that is stored on my Windows 7 computer on my Roku box. My question is this--does MB have its own native codecs or is it using the K-lite codec pack that's installed on my computer? Joe Smart

    Windows 8 store app

    Any update on when we might see the windows store app. While I'm loving the windows phone8 version, I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on mediabrowser on my surface tablet. Great work guys Thanks Paul
  6. UPDATED: 2-13-14 I updated the configuration I am using...again. I was getting random missed events with the original configuration and now its working much better. Not perfect, but much better. You should be able to use this for any media player you use. You just need to point the entries which say "EDIT" to the program of your choosing. I found out the reason for not being able to capture the focus of the program. There is a plugin called "Task Create/Switch Events". This will help determine when an application has been brought to front, closed or minimized. The catch is that you need explorer to be running in order to capture "Task" events. So I am stuck capturing process events which has been a bit more tricky to get to work right. -- If anyone knows about creating python scripts and would like to create a script to make EventGhost better at this whole convoluted process, then be my guest and let us know what you come up with -- Changes 2-13-14 1. Pre-Starts 'media program' (PowerDVD, JRiver, Total Media Theater, etc..) at initial boot then after 20 seconds, the 'media program' is minimized, sent to the back and Media Browser is brought into focus. Reason I changed it to 20 seconds is during a cold boot, it takes time for the media program to be loaded, and the process I capture is created before the program shows up so adding the extra time makes EventGhost wait till the next step in the process. 2. Added a "Left Mouse Click" to certain areas. I had issues with PowerDVD loosing focus after it loaded, even though it was on top and maximized. Probably due to more processes being created. So this left click was the only way I found so far to get it back into focus. Maybe I should have EG wait 30 seconds or so to pre-load the media program to keep it in focus. 3. Cleaned up Event Tree Notice - This IS NOT meant to be a plug and play setup but with a few tweaks you should be able to get it to work. This is meant to put you on the right path for a working Work-Around. - You will need to capture the proper events specific to the program you are using. Example, Process.Destroyed.PDVDLP is actually telling me that PDVD has been sent to the rear or closed. The PDVDLP portion is PDVDLP.EXE so you will need to start up your media program, then minimize it and watch for the specific events on the left hand side column in Event Ghost which will give you realtime list of all events its monitoring. I can try and help you out if needed. ---------------------------------------------------- Updated Original Post: Soon to be a completed HOW TO. In my quest to make this work "for now" untill MBT becomes beta or further and plugins are offered, I continued to find a way to get automatic disc playback when MBT is used as windows shell (not explorer). When Explorer.exe is closed or not used, Windows looses all the AutoPlay functions we use. Instant Sheller is what I used to make MBT Windows Shell MBT Program Path (C:\Users\*UserAccount*\AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Theater\System\MediaBrowser.UI.exe) Download Event Ghost Download EventGhost Tree XML (As a template) (Updated 2-13-14) When loading Event Ghost, go to "FILE" and "OPEN" then browse to EventGhost Tree.xml. I ended up capturing the system event...."System.DriveMounted.E" and "System.DriveRemoved.E" to auto start PowerDVD13 and play the disc and close PowerDVD13 when ejecting the disc. The. ".E" is the drive letter. Though I have yet to capture the correct even to get PowerDVD to close when I press the STOP button. I need to conversate with the folks at EG some more to see if someone can write a script with that. A picture of the event tree. This is setup for PowerDVD13 but can easily be adjusted for another program Picture Updated 2-13-14
  7. Hi, I'm looking for a suggestion on building (or repurposing) a machine. Most of the ones that I've read have been general purpose machines for a lot of things. I'm really just looking for a machine that will be able to run MB3 server and transcode and stream up to a max of 8 different movies at the same time. There will be other programs running but minor ones. Is Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 preferred? Does it matter? Clients 2-3 MBT or MBC on Local LAN - Direct Play - No transcoding 2 - Local LAN Roku 3 - Local Wireless IOS 1 - Remote Roku 2 - Remote IOS I know these might not all be supported at this time but I want to take into account all of this for future overhead and not have to build again. Everything will be streamed from a NAS that is connected via gigabit ethernet. Mostly Movies and TV. Movies all 1080p source and TV is 720p source. My goal is not the break the bank but I'd like to get the best quality parts I can for the money right now as I'd rather not have to upgrade it in 2 years. Thanks for the help Josh
