If you are like me, it is very frustrating to lose all of the Moving Pictures watched settings and custom filter settings for my ever growing (740+) collection of movies when reinstalling MediaPortal or Moving Pictures. Prior to this tool, I would have to manually set the watch settings, as well as re-create my custom filters and menu options after reinstalling MP! I have special filters and menu options for kids and family settings that the "out of box" filters and menu options just can't provide. Needless to day, it is time consuming and a real pain in the butt when reinstalling Moving Pictures.
This tool allows a user to export data directly from the Moving Pictures SQLite database / file system locations to the movie library or a customized backup location. Future versions will also support import capabilities as well.
It can create individual XML files that contain information from the Moving Pictures database for storage in the movie file (or any other) location. These XML files contain all of the movie information and local media settings, as well as watched settings and custom filter (black / white) list settings. It will also copy all related cover art (cover, thumb, alternate covers, and backdrop) to the movie file (or any other) location.
Just tried this plugin whilst upgrading to Windows 10. Got sick of having to manually adjust the movie covers -some would load: others would not- everytime I altered MP.
Worked first time after exporting info from Windows 7 setup. Thanks.
