Cataloging *.mp4 files with the movie module

  • If this has already been answered elsewhere I apologize.

    I was wondering if there was a way to add support for the .mp4 extension for the import function.  Below is an extended file spec cobbled from one of the files that gets passed by.

    thank you for your time.

    • I was looking for this also have over 50 movies in mp4 because they play well on the ps3 with one of those dlna servers. I converted them just for that now my 2dvd script doesnt work and I cant use other media software. stupid ps3 they were all in mpg format wich worked well with everything else. I really dont want to rip all those dvd's again.
