Hey I love your app/software.
Thank you for all the work.

Do you think you come up with a way/option to allow us to create blank XML's for Series, Collections and Movies?

I would like to be able to create a XML file that I couild file out and customize if I see fit or the situation presents itself because there aren't any fetchers or metadata providers for the whatever media.

In my mind, I see a preference check box, that when enabled would create another option in the right click context menu.. "Start Custom XML/Blank XML" which creates an XML for that highlighted folder and allows you to add in whatever information into the "metadata" tab while the highlighted file is still "red". You save your metadata, to turns "yellow".. etc.

For me personally, something this little would make close to 90% of my user issues disappear. (using MCM is pretty flawless in most instances..)

Already does for unknown movies if you enable the option.

But this request is more for creating a UI the covers all/custom fields.


Attached are blank series, movie, collection templates (of course other fields can be added manually). Examples already existed in old topics.

Hey Doug,
Thanks that actually helps a lot in both instances, one the additional explanation and agreement, to the secondary assistance and provision of the templates.

Thanks a lot, seriously. Quick question, did you have one for Episodes, too?

Either way, I appreciate it.

Easiest way would be to just grab on from the hidden metadata folder in one of your seasons folders and remove existing data. Then you can see what the fields are for.
