I was a bit dramatic here, it will close "before end June" so I might have some time to back up the yadis thread with tutorial and the templates in the yadis existing topics about yadis that can be found here.

Yadis is already very stable and full of options. There should be a 3.0 at some point but my guess is that the dev behind it (Fred) doesn't Find any fun in doing a new version. But yadis as it is is for me the best one (mostly because of the customization and UI).

You could consider zappiti as dead as yadis if you wanted, as for the smart serie you will be stuck forever with the 2.8

No, still not working. I just posted on the MM forum too. I think MM is my only option since it seems it is the only one that will let me store off-line titles, and has the ability to add multiple titles to a category. Plus it has a great iPad app that I already paid for, not to mention paying $100 for MM back in the day. Would like to try out one of their new skins, once I get this thing going.

EDIT: Since Zappiti pretty much worked right from the start, I looked into on the their dune_txt files from the index it created. The path it points to is this:
item.0.media_url=smb://192.168.1.50/Movies/new movies/A MOST WANTED MAN/A MOST WANTED MAN.iso

If the dune can access a movie through this path, why can't MM? Maybe I should put in the SMB

I think I know what the problem may be. In MM I set the monitoring location to be //86htpc-pc/movies
Movies is the share. Inside this share I have 4 folders
/Blu Ray
/new movies
/dvd
/mmindex

I changed the MM monitoring, and added each of these 3 movie folders separately.

FWIW, Zappiti allows you to have offline files, it just won't let you add offline files, since it needs to scan them to add them. Once added, they can be offline forever. Just be aware that if you do a new scan while files are offline, it will mark them for cleanup (which you just ignore).

I could even go as far as creating a 5 second video with text that reads"this title is offline". Dummy video files. Then scan them in. When I click to play the video, my dummy video will play.

I like yaDIS a lot.

What i need is an icon on the cover so that when browsing I can see what tiles are offline. WMC used to do this. I loved that.

I could also create my movies in .avi format, hoping that the movie details screen would show the format. Since I don't have any avi files, I would know right there whether the movie is offline.

Got MM to work. Had to have a password on my windows user account. Once I created that I ticked "SMB" and put in my credentials. So strange that MM requires this, when Yadis, Zappiti, and 10muse all don't.

Well, nobody said I can't have more than one jukebox. Maybe I will keep MM for when I want to browse my entire setup, and use 10muse for just local titles. I really like the browse by actor/director, and the bulk-add feature. It also allows you to automatically add a movie to a category upon insert (like "unseen"). That is a great feature!

With MPCHD closing, should we start an official YaDIS for Dune thread? I was thinking of a Dune Jukebox thread, to encompass yaDIS, MM, Zappiti, 10Muse, but that might be confusing since there is an Official MM for Dune thread. What do you guys think?

I found an old mixed thread for Zap/MM/yadis : Zappiti, Yadis, and MyMovies for Dune

I think we can use it at least till I'm able to back up things from MPCC into an new yadis thread that i will make. Unfortunately I don't have much time right now, so it won't be before a few days (I hope...). there's also an "emergency" thread that I created some time ago as a backup for yadis templates that I need to update as well (will take quite some time to do, any help will be appreciated), this could be the new home for any yadis related questions : Yadis templates for Dune HDI players (emergency backup thread)

let me know what I can do to help. PM me.

I'm all for a separate yadis thread. Since there is a separate MM thread. Or we could just revive the all in one thread. my 2ยข.

hahaha. SSR, not all of us have 50PB enterprise-grade servers in our house. Some of us scrape by with a measly 5TB storage capacity. I make due by not ripping my entire collection to my computer. I keep only the most watched movies on my pc. A priority for me is a jukebox that displays all the covers of my entire collection when browsing. I am working on setting up a little "offline" logo on my wall covers in yaDIS so that I can see that a title is offline while browsing. If I'm not too lazy, I would then go downstairs to find the disc to play it.

I have 458 movies online (mix of BD/dvd) and 259 that are offline.

in yaDIS, I modified one of the default cover images for all of my offline movies. Notice the little blue disc icon on the box art.

I've got 7 Dune Smart players - 4 installed - 3 as backups.

I have no problems whatsoever with them.

I have no experience with the others you mentioned.
