Great if you have like 5 movies and like uglyness...
For goodness sake - you don't like the program - we get it.
No need to be so personally abusive to a guy who has spent a lot of time and effort on producing a program THAT COSTS YOU NOTHING - and that loads of us are very grateful to use. If you don't like something, move on and use something else, or write something better yourself... There is an MCML version to replace the HTML version in the works - but as the guy who writes it is a one-man band, and he doesn't release beta junk, it is taking a while.
MyMovies is not optimised to import large libraries of pre-ripped movies and TV shows - it does have some of that functionality - but it isn't the main focus of the app.
It was designed to work as a DVD jukebox, allowing you to load each DVD into the library - including artwork, cast, synposis, soundtrack languge, aspect ratio, release year etc. details , and then point the app either to the position in your DVD multichanger or the folder that the ISO or VIDEO_TS rip of the DVD was stored in.
It appears it doesn't solve your problem - as you want something that will just scan your folders of pre-ripped ISOs and add them to your library - which is not quite what MyMovies is about.
Those of us who use MyMovies usually use it differently - manually setting up our libraries (so we can properly check and proof the details for each disc we add) - and many of us either rip as we enter into MyMovies, or just get a pile of discs from the shelf and use the barcode on the back to associate them with an existing folder. Best tip is to add a whole bunch of Online images and then add to the library, rather than doing it one at a time, as that way it does a batch download and update of actor profiles etc.
(The "folder scan" is not something that MyMovies can do as well because it doesn't treat each movie as a single release, it has details of many versions of the same release - with each DVD release (France, Germany, UK, US etc.) treated as a separate entity. How would it know the difference between the UK, the US, the French and the German DVD release of "Casino Royale" just from the folder name for instance? If you live in France, Sweden - or Denmark as the guy who created MyMovies does - then this stuff is pretty important - particularly if you want your database in a language other than English...)
I've got over 300 movies - a mix of DVD, BD and HD-DVD - in my library and it works really well for me. For releases that weren't in the library, I've scanned the artwork and uploaded details to improve it for others - that is how the thing works. If you are the first person to rip that particular movie - or the release version of that movie - then that is the decent thing to do...
