How to Add ISO Files & Metadata to Windows Media Center Movie Library

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I like to store my movie collection in ISO format so that each rip contains everything that was on the disc. However, the only down side to this is that Windows Media Center Movie Library does not support the ISO format, so your movie collection will not showup. This means you have to exit the Media Center interface to load the movie. This is not good for the wife approval factor (WAF), so this is what I did to fix the issue. I installed YAMMM. I went through the installation guide below and now I have perfect metadata with a great cover picture for each ISO file inside Windows Media Center Movie Library.

How to Configure YAMMM:

Who says you have to exit Media Center to load a movie? I've got all my Blu-Ray movies in iso format and I can access them just fine using Media Browser in WMC.

Increase the WAF by installing Media Browser. Use Media Center Studio to remove the WMC "Movies" entry and replace it with the Media Browser "Movies" link.

You can use Media Browser to launch ISO files automatically and launch an external player if you wish. I have my DVDs play within WMC, but Blu-ray images launch in TMT5.

I was trying to do everything using Windows Media Center Movie Library. I know you can use Media Browser.

Was just about to ask you to post a screen cap of what the results are, but it is in your first link:



For those who do not want to use MediaBrowser or MyMovies, this is a viable option.

Apparently there's an issue trying to get iso movies to appear in the WMC movie library. I just read a post that discusses it in another thread (I think it discusses Media Master, which is similar to Media Browser). Media Browser shows up as a menu item just like the movie library does. All you have to do is scroll up from the main menu to access it. You do not have to exit Media Center to get to your movies and play them.

If you want to discuss how to use *Media Browser*, why not do so somewhere else?
