Mediaplayer is becoming a fantastic app. Is metadata supposed to work? It would be nice but where would the metadata be stored and would it cause memory issues?
If you have the ATV2 learn a remote and set up the playback buttons then Mediaplayer does not take advantage of them. Is that a bug or just normal? I would have thought that remotes defined by the ATV2 would be universal.
Anyway, great stuff. Mediaplayer alone justifies aTV Flash.
Metadata works great with my M4V (aka MP4 aka H264) files. It is able to identify even some relatively obscure and rare movies. Not sure if its using the labels in the files themselves, or some algorythm to pull the identification from within the movie itself (like some audio tracks). Whatever it does, it is working well.
Does it require a certain naming conventon? For example can it use a folder name or similar xbmc methods? Does it use imdb? I must be doing something wrong as it has never been able to fetch metadata and I do have it enabled.
I’m just wondering if the metadata is supposed to actually SAVE? - Media player finds the data OK on my files but when i go back to it later it seems to have to ‘fetch’ it again? Is there some sort of setting that can save it?? Surely it shouldn’t have to retrieve the data everytime i use mediaplayer?
