Download the latest version of Y2M

 

Y2M       


Unzip the file and you will find a folder “YAMJ_To_Mede8er_Peter_Butler_V2.0.5mod_Shizzl_yamj2.8-r3700”

Open folder “YAMJ_To_Mede8er_2.0.5.exe” and create a shortcut to your desktop

Prepare your Movie Library

5.1

The Movie Library can be on the Mede8er’s internal HDD or a External USB Device or your PC or a Network Location.

5.2

Place each movie into its own folder.

5.3

Use the correct naming convention. Please visit the YAMJ Wiki for more detailed information.

For simplicity you can use the following naming movie.name_year.mkv  (the movie name should have a full stop separating each word)

example =  Anna.and.the.King_1990.mkv

 
 

YAMJ does a good job of finding the correct content if you stick to the correct file naming convention. You may also consider using the NFO method on selective movies should they prove to be problematic.

 

6

NFO file (optional)

6.1

Place each movie in its own folder

6.2

Create .nfo files in folders that are required. To make a NFO file just save a .txt file with notepad and just rename the extension to .nfo. Use notepad to edit the nfo file.

6.3

Look up the movie details and address on IMDB.
http://www.imdb.com and copy the IMDB page address into the NFO file.

6.4

Save the .NFO file into the movie folder

6.5

Rename the .NFO file to the same name as the movie file.

6.6

Repeat above for each movie in your collection.

To change the Language of the movie plots

8.1

In the YamJ folder, there is a file called moviejukebox-Mede8er.properties. Open this file with Notepad and add the following lines:
plugin.plot.maxlength=350 (change this size to change length of plot)
mjb.internet.plugin=A
thetvdb.language=B

8.2

Replace A by the desired Property line you can find here:
http://code.google.com/p/moviejukebox/wiki/Plugins

8.3

Replace B by the desired code that you can also find here:
http://code.google.com/p/moviejukebox/wiki/Plugins

8.4

Now save the file and exit. Wipe your Jukebox folder completely, or at least all the .xml files
Now re-run Y2M again and enjoy your local language plots.

8.5

 

Example for Dutch movie plots:


plugin.plot.maxlength=350
mjb.internet.plugin=com.moviejukebox.plugin.MovieMeterPlugin
thetvdb.language=nl
 

The maxlength param is to prevent icons moving to bottom of the screen when plot is too long
