I set MCM to generate Windows Media Center “Video Library” metadata which genertated the dvdid.xml but the metadata isn’t displaying in the MCE VIDEO Library.

Does dvdid.xml only work with the MCE MOVIE Library?

Just so things don’t get confused, there’s a MCE VIDEO Library and a MCE MOVIE Library.

Is there anyway to add metadata to the MCE VIDEO Library using MCM?

What about embedding the metadata into the video files, can the MCE VIDEO Library display embedded metadata?

Please post your Support Information.

Is MCM and WMC running under the same user?

Here is the support information. Just to reiterate, I'm trying to work out how to add metadata to the MCE VIDEO Library, NOT the MCE Movie Library.

I tried using the 3rd party app MetaX to embed metadata into a MP4 video file but the MCE VIDEO Library would not display it.

I want to manage the metadata for home videos (non-commercial DVD's, tutorial videos, presentations etc.) but I can't find any plugins or suitable programs. How are people even managing videos? All the programs and plugins are designed for managing TV shows and Movies only.

I don't know WMC well enough to say definitively, but in all other apps (Kodi, Plex, Emby, etc.) we simply treat those as movies with custom metadata. If you do that with WMC, then Media Center Master has your back.

As far as I know, WMC has never supported reading external metadata for T.V. series (and doubtful for other kinds of videos). We skirted by with a 'dvdid.xml' file that WMC used to pair a title with a movie on DVD disc by faking a DVD ID, but that only works for movies and thus why only movies are supported with WMC.

Since Microsoft dropped support for Windows Media Center and no longer offers it in Windows 10, there's been little interest in the HTPC community for supporting or using it. I would recommend one of the many great alternatives. I use Kodi, personally, but there's plenty of options out there.

I can’t get the metadata to display in the WMC MOVIE Library either. MCM created the .dvdid file in the Home Alone folder along with the movie.xml file but no synopsis etc. is displaying.

The .dvdid file contains the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Disc>
<Name>Home Alone</Name>
<ID>mcm_id__tt0099785-771</ID>
</Disc>

What am I doing wrong? The movie.xml file has all the correct metadata, and I also tried adding the synopsis info to the following fields that were missing it:

<Outline></Outline>
<ShortDescription></ShortDescription>

I thought maybe WMC might download the metadata from it’s provide using the <ID>mcm_id__tt0099785-771</ID> but I checked the WMC Auto Download Options and I have the “Retrieve CD album art, media info for DVDs and movies, and Internet Services from the Internet” setting enabled.

Do you have these options enabled?

viewtopic.php?p=45475#p45475

I assume MCM and WMC are running under the same user.

Is there metadata in "eHome"?

Yes, both those options are enabled, and MCM and WMC are running under the same user.

Thanks for letting me know about the eHome cache folder.

Yes, the Home Alone artwork is in the DvdCoverCache folder, and the Home Alone xml file is in the DvdInfoCache folder and has all the correct metadata.

I wonder what is stopping the metadata from displaying in the WMC Movie Library.
