JUKEBOX w/movie series grouping+VIDEO_TS/ISO TV series episode parsing+music vid+shuf
Hi all,

I have used NMJ for a while now and found it very limited, so I was looking for other options but I am unsure what jukeboxes -if any- would allow the following
I seem to understand YAMJ is pretty slick, but it looks so complicated to setup with so many versions and customisations etc. that I lost hope and gave up. I need something that is not too fiddly and geeky:

- movies series (franchises) to be grouped together. For example, have "Friday the 13th" as the main entry on the main screen, then, upon pressing it, display all the "Friday the 13th" movies in the franchise – not as a list of episodes like in a TV series in NMJ, but rather as a 'sub-section'/'sub-folder' kind of thing.

- Parse episodes from VIDEO_TS or ISO TV series.

- I'd also like to have a separate section for music video clips, with shuffle support if possible [the 'FolderShufflePlay' app doesn't work for me, and neither do any custom menus or 'Sleek'. They all give me a "request cannot be processed" error upon trying to access folders (running latest firmware - 27 May 2011) on PCH-A210 with 2TB internal HDD – it's kind of silly that I must have MyiHome running on my Mac to be able to shuffle videos on my PCH's internal HDD]

- Sort a group/category/search-result of films only (as opposed to entire lib in NMJ), by year

Is NMJ V2 likely to have these features when it eventually comes out, thus worth waiting?

Thank you all for a kind reply

PS. Any hope for FLV support in V2?

YAMJ is pretty easy to get going once you understand the basics.

If you want something a little more graphic or easier to understand I recommend trying out Oversight, or MovieFlow. Both of those are a little more user friendly to setup.

Thanks for your replies.
Do the jukeboxes you've mentioned have the features I'm looking for? 'subfolder-like' grouping + DVD episodes indexing?

For music vids, I'll try Music video flow. Looks like a useful tool and the only option anyway.
It'd be great if there was a way to normalise the volume, as all vids have different volume levels. :-(

BTW, Is there any jukebox out there that can create entries for specific points in a video?
For example, I have some music concerts in non-DVD format (mkv, avi, etc.).
I'd like to have a list in the jukebox of the songs that are in the concert that I can click on to directly jump to.

Thanks!

Good Luck .. Enjoy ...

RE: JUKEBOX w/movie series grouping+VIDEO_TS/ISO TV series episode parsing+music vid+shuf
sorry i know this thread hasnt been touched for a few months but i just recently got a pch a210, and new to the whole thing,

i want to group all movie series, such as the aliens and back to the futures under one cover art on the nmj movie wall and then when you go in all the movies are available there, as the previous post said not as episodes in a tv series

is this possible in the nmj?

thanks for your help
