Global settings can be configured and the files contained in the library can be managed here.
Enable media library
If checked, all media library features are available. Otherwise all other settings on this page will be hidden and only folders and plugin folders can be added.
Pictures save folder path
All pictures downloaded from TMDb, generated from file as well as temporary thumbnails are being stored in this folder.
You can choose to ignore prefixes like 'the' when sorting or filtering. This option only applies if using the video name or original video name.
Each word separated by a space will be used as a prefix. A space will be added to the end of the word if it ends with a-z or 0-9 (is an alphanumeric char).
Configuring a themoviedb.org account currently only lets you use the rating folder to rate a movie directly from the ps3. There could be other uses for it in the future.
You can see how many files of each type are stored in the library and also maintain its contents.
This will delete all files for a selected type in the library
When resetting the library, all files and configurations will be deleted and restored to the initial values.
This will check for all the files you've got in the library and remove the ones it can't find where they were first scanned. Be careful that all external hard disks where you've got scanned files are connected and powered up ;)
Files can be imported into the library from here. The scanner also shows in which state it is (initialized, running or idle).
When you scan a folder this dialog will show up.
For now only videos will work. The rest will be added at some point.
When scanning videos, all the available information like size, creation date, image height, audio languages etc is being read from the video file itself the same way it is being done by the original pms. Once read it's being stored in the library.
If selected, pms-mlx will try to retrieve information about the movie from themoviedb.org by searching for the file name without the extension. The same language as the one set for pms is being used. Tmdb should return content with the set language if it has it, english otherwise.
It's used to have a list of folders where you can simply click scan, to add new files to the library. It will be really useful, when the watch folders will work.
The settings are identical to the above File Scanner section.
