haha thanks!! It all turned out to be a sad waste of time.... and im having to retag/ and partially rerip things now... so consider yourself lucky:)

I'm not sure if it has been suggested, but have you tried Jriver Media Center ? It has a "Theater mode" that looks very similar to Front row and apple TV.

thanks! ive been looking at jriver, i even paid for it, but im not entirely happy with the interface.  i would prefer a theater mode totally folder oriented.

This is insane man, you are my hero :)

I'm a lil confused.  Any reason you CAN'T use front row even though it's not being updated?

 

I've not read the whole thread but it certainly looks impressive.  Put's my little collection to shame certainly.  It also illustrates what a mess mines in.  I just can't work up the will to do it.  Maybe someday.

 

Cheers

well, its still usable, but I was really only halfway through the project and I'm too afraid to devote more years to it, knowing that the software is no longer available.  It also does not come with current macs and is not integrated with current versions of itunes.

 

Thanks!

I believe, and correct me if I'm wrong, that all the non-standard tags in iTunes (sort fields, for example) are stored in the iTunes database and not in the ID3 tag space in the files themselves.  If I'm correct, that means the iTunes database has to travel with the media and not get corrupted in order for all this hard work to endure.  I've lost a database or two... it doesn't seem resilient enough to be the only place that all of this effort's work is being kept.

 

Still, though, you're passion is amazing... bordering on worrisome... have you been tested for OCD or some sort of brain parasite?  If you haven't, don't.  It might ruin this "comic book"-like story I've just stumbled onto.

 

Whatever the details, I'm impressed.  Good work.

I keep copies of my iTunes Library and iTunes Library.xml files.
