How do I create Metadata?

Perhaps I don’t understand the process, but I have a drive which stores all my movies. How do I get it to show metadata for each movie?

Thanks in advance.

Since you are dealing with movies, the hub can do that for you. Just browse those movies in the hub then in each movie, press the options button in the remote and select Get Content Info. Just follow the process and you’ll have your metadata and picture for each movie.

Thanks for your reply. Is there a way for the hub to automatically get the metadata for all the movies instead of my doing so one by one?

No.

You can always use some external tools, like thumbgen!

Thanks Firetix. I’ll give that a try.

It seems Thumgen is for PC. Is there anything for Mac?

Thanks!

This is a little tool that retrieves the metadata for movies as well, but it is also for windows.

Thumbgen looks sexier, but apparantly it doesn’t get the images (yet)…

Apparently the latest version of thumbgen should get the images anyway…

Hi,
