Nick (and whoever else is interested)


I've made good progress with migrating a MM Library to Vee-Hive. We should talk....

Yes, it is time-consuming but presumably you know how to tag many videos at once?

Update: I was eventually able to re-create the crash you described; it occurs when the mouse is down on the crumb-bar and then moved. Fixed in v1.8.5

wrt your m2t files, successful playback and thumbnail generation is governed by the DirectShow filters installed on your system. How are you setup in that regard? Such files play fine on my XP SP3 system, btw...


As far as your other questions are concerned, they are all answered (via) here, I believe:









But, briefly, as I am just about to go out:

- You tag files by drag/dropping from the Browser to the Tree - you did the opposite, which is how you view files with a given tag!

- You exit HTPC mode via the short-cuts denoted on the 'View' menu, i.e. F10


As far as the crashes that occur when clicking 'View 1' etc, these are not actually intended to be clickable and I cannot recreate the crashes. We'll need to explore this more, preferably at my forum....

Yes, please, I'd like to see a library that contains thumbnails as it isn't apparent, from what I have thus-far seen, where they might be stored.


As an update to my previous comments, I have discovered that I can distribute MS Sql Server with Vee-Hive but this appears to be an over-kill solution that would bloat my own software package and introduce potential support issues for me. As such, it is not something that I wish to do. However, there may be scope to create a separate stand-alone program whose sole function is to perfrom Library conversion but I haven't really (read 'at all'!) thought this through. It would most likely entail my leaving the installation and set-up of Sql Server to the end-user, though, and that (as I have learnt) is not straightforward...


Anyway, I'll leave you to play with Vee-Hive. Ask here if you have questions - the user manual is pretty poor and largely out-of-date; being a typical developer, I keep putting-off a proper re-write...
