I would also love to see a way to add media to a "favorites", and sort media by other attributes such as year. Others already mentioned the juicier features.

Can somebody work on trying to get this into UpdateMedia itself? We shouldn't have to run a "script" ... perhaps by doing some introspection of the files we can at least set format, and use directories for the others.

If you're referring to donpaul's script, the autotag patch I submitted six months ago integrates with UpdateMedia to do this and more.  It is based on file / directory path, allows regular expressions, and allows you to set/update/add MediaType, MediaSubType, ShortAttribute, LongAttribute.  

Edit: To clarify - it does not do any introspection on the files, though I think that's a good idea and separate from the autotag patch.

I would love to apply and test that patch if it isn't already in the latest release. I only use the script as a workaround until the feature was added, and provided it in case anyone else is as impatient as I am.

The Amazon affiliate link I set up that would benefit the community, including the 'dev hardship fund' has had 7 clicks and no sales.  Does nobody in this community buy things on Amazon?  this doesn't cost you anything but the community will recieve commission for your sale at 4-7% of the purchase price.  Just click thru the link below and search Amazon, select, Buy, the community gains

I didn't know about this and have bought quite a lot of stuff from Amazon UK- how about a sticky in all forums with just the subject "PLEASE DONATE TO LINUXMCE" and the Amazon links and the normal donation button/link.

I'm going to try the new version of LMCE.  For me the things which probably need improving most with LMCE are:
  • Faster integration of newer kernel and driver versions (to enable new hardware support- otherwise there is a race between LMCE supporting new kernel versions and other drivers, and the LMCE supported hardware being obsolete and only available 2nd hand)
  • Elimination of tearing video

Not as far as I know, but I did just notice a recent update on the trac ticket that someone had added the libpcrecpp library dependency to UpdateMedia.  Perhaps they are getting ready to integrate it?

I would love to apply and test that patch if it isn't already in the latest release. I only use the script as a workaround until the feature was added, and provided it in case anyone else is as impatient as I am.
I would really appreciate any testing and/or feedback.  Unfortunately, I don't currently have a functional 0810 build environment to provide you with binaries, but if you have one set up and wanted to try the patch, I'd be happy to help however I can.  The patch and my instructions for setting it up are in the trac ticket http://trac.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/158
