Where is metadata stored?

Metadata

When in doubt, try it. It won't bite you.

 

Changes to movie.xml are reflected, LockData will work and we download the images.

I have just jumped from MB2 to MB3 having installed the server. Using the Web Client I believe all went well!!

 

I noticed the option to save Metadata within Media folders. This option which I checked brings up some questions.

 

Is the metadata stored in a table or is it extracted from the movie.XML file each time it is displayed?

 

If it is stored in a table, does a refresh of the data for a movie will it get in from the movie.XML or the internet?

 

Does the database store Fanart or just a link to it in the media folder?

 

If I don't want the data changed after it is loaded do I just change the Movie.XML tag <LockData> to False?

 

So far it looks like a great improvement

 

Thanks

JohnnyM
