Metadata? XML? please help

hi, im a bit of a noob, i have had my WD TV live streaming media player for a few months now, i have a few movies on my WD external hard drive which i play on my tv through the media player.

What i want to know is how to get the movie information (year, actors, directors, plot etc.) into the file as i can see there is a view displaying this as flicking through movies.

I have tried to study up on metadata and XML but seem to be going in circles any help would be great thanks!

On a Movie file (eg.Batman.mkv)  … press the “Option” Button on your Remote Control & select “Get Content Info”

You need to have the “Media Library” turned “On” to do this (otherwise Get Content Info will not be available)
