    Default Ant Movie Catalog

    Hi all,
    I'm evaluating the use of mezzmo as DLNA server for my TV. I've all my movies library organized into an Ant Movie Catalog application equipped with useful informations such as genre, director, year, bitrate, codec and with thumbnails saved as .jpg file outside the catalog.

    Is there a method to import this information into mezzmo database so I'll can use them for active playlists?

    Thanks.

    Can that application create the MyMovies.xml files - Mezzmo can read those in. Alternatively, if it's a popular application and has an open database, we could possibly support it, but that needs investigating.

    Thank you for fast reply.

    Application has its own xml format; here an example with 1 movie only:
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252"?>
    <AntMovieCatalog Format="35" Version="3.5.1 (2008-07-06)" Date="05/12/2010 14.38.07">
     <Catalog>
      <Properties/>

Balthazar Blake è un maestro della magia che vive nell&#39;odierna Manhattan e che intende difendere la città dalla sua nemesi per eccellenza, Maxim Horvath. Ma per farlo Balthazar ha bisogno di aiuto, e recluta quindi Dave Stutler, un ragazzo apparentemente normale ma che possiede doti nascoste, sottoponendolo ad un folle addestramento per fargli apprendere il più in fretta possibile tutti i segreti della magia. In questo nuovo ruolo di apprendista stregone, Dave dovrà fare appello a tutto il suo coraggio per sopravvivere all&#39;addestramento, arrestare le forze del male e conquistare il cuore della ragazza che ama."

    I'll check for a transformation from this and mymovies.xml schema.

    Thanks for the sample. If it can export mymovies.xml that'd be great, as of course Mezzmo already supports that.
