How to use and setup YAMJ on your PC.

This one is made with the help of:

Blooper65 en Insomnia.


    The first known issues:

    1. File names for movies with more then 62 characters result in a crash (solved on 07-02-2010)
    2. More then 20 sub folders result in a crash.
    3. No network support. (solved on 07-02-2010)
    4. If you have more then 29 folders in a folder on the Playon!HD somewhere,
    the Playon!HD keep searching for the index.htm file and will not find it.



    How to install YAMJ on you PC:

    1. Install Java http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp
    2. Create a new folder on your PC, like “C:\YAMJ” or "C:\A.C.Ryan MovieJukebox\"
    3. Download the new YAMJ from http://code.google.com/p/moviejukebox/downloads/list

    4. Extract YAMJ to the new created folder “C:\YAMJ” or "C:\A.C.Ryan MovieJukebox\"
    5. Download MediaInfo from http://sourceforge.net/projects/mediainfo/files/binary/
    . You need the CLI version of MediaInfo ( MediaInfo_CLI_*.zip)
    . If you use the 32 bit version of Windows then use MediaINfo_CLI_x.x.x.x._Windows_i386.zip
    . If you use the 64bit version of Windows then use MediaINfo_CLI_x.x.x.x._Windows_x64.zip
    . If you use Mac OSX then use the MediaInfo_CLI_x.x.x_Mac_Universal.dmg
    . If you use Linux then use the appropriate package for your distribution.
    6. In the folder YAMJ you have to create a new sub folder called MediaInfo
    7. Extract the MediaInfo.zip into this MediaInfo folder.
    8. Download Yamj Gui here.
    9. Extract YAMJ GUI Tool in the “C:\YAMJ” or the "C:\A.C.Ryan MovieJukebox\" folder.
    10. Start “YAMJ GUI Config (ACR) v1.0.2.exe”and select the “movie” folder on your Playon!HD and click on the save button.
    . There will be created 2 files called “ACR_YAMJ.cmd” and “ACR_Library.xml”
    11. Start “ACR_YAMJ.cmd” and now the “movie” folder on the Playon!HD will be scanned and indexed.

    Here you can download the guide on how to use the Yamj Gui Tool,
    Yamj_user_Guide

    A small explanation how to get YAMJ to work with the internal HDD of the Playon!HD

    The Playon!HD made standard some folders on the internal HDD named “movie,image,music and System Volume
    Information”.
    We will use the folder “movie” to work with YAMJ. Don’t change the name of this folder.
    Inside this folder there should be your movie files. You can use sub folders but be aware that the number of sub
    folders is maximum 20 in this trial version. And very important there should be no more then 29 sub folder in any
    folder,also the “music and image” folder, otherwise the index.htm file will not be found.
    In my case the names of the folders are without spaces or with under score between the names, although the folder
    Sherlock Holmes works also for me.


    A small explanation how to setup YAMJ to your own needs.

    In the folder YAMJ on the PC there is a folder called properties.
    In this folder you will find a file called moviejukebox.properties. Not moviejukebox_default.properties.
    Copy this file to the main folder of YAMJ and open it with Notepad or Wordpad.
    Following is an update from http://code.google.com/p/moviejukebox/wiki/PlayOnHD :

    These are a list of properties that are specific to the PoHD jukebox.

    Most of the properties listed in PropertiesConfig will also apply to the PoHD player.

    Please follow the instructions on the " PropertiesConfig page " for creating your user MovieJukebox.properties file
    and add these properties in that file.

    In the standard YAMJ installation all of these properties will be false by default,
    so you will have to specifically set them in your user moviejukebox.properties file.


    mjb.PlayOnHD

    This parameter should be set so that PoHD specific processing can take place.
    For example, the adding of VIDEO_TS.IFO to any VIDEO_TS file structures.


    Valid Values
    mjb.PlayOnHD=false
    mjb.PlayOnHD=true


    In this moviejukebox.properties file you can also add the following text :

    Example movies:

    mjb.internet.plugin=com.moviejukebox.plugin.TheMovieDbPlugin


    if you want the information and
    pictures different than the default setting and in your own language. See the list of plug-ins you can use.

    plugins yamj.JPG [ 103.59 KiB | Viewed 46899 times ]


    Example TV series:

    thetvdb.language=nl
    if you want the information in the Dutch language.


    Valid language codes are:

    Attachment:
    language code yamj.JPG
    language code yamj.JPG [ 21.13 KiB | Viewed 46899 times ]


    Example skins:

    mjb.skin.dir=./skins/default

    #This is the skin property, you will need to change this if you want to change the look of YAMJ.
    Look for different skins in the skins folder.


    Note: In this trial firmware only the default skin is working at the moment.

    Sometimes the wrong information and picture are shown on the screen in Jukebox.
    This can be solved by adding a text file with the extension "nfo" in the folder where the movie is located.
    This text file must have the exact name as the movie and must be in the same folder as the movie .
    That can be a subfolder or the main folder “movie”.
    Then go to the internet and search for the right movie information.
    For example " Moviemeter.nl " .
    When you have the right information of the movie copy the address from the address bar and past this into the text
    file.
    Delete all files starting with the name of the movie. ( 6 files) from the jukebox folder on the Playon!HD and restart the
    ACR_YAMJ.cmd program again.
    When everything went well you will have the right information that belong to the movie on your TV screen.


    When you add the right date of the movie in the name of the movie ( like 2009) will also help to find the right
    information.



    Explanation on file name length By don :



    The maximum (alphabets or numbers only) file name length allowed is 82 excluding the ".avi" (the extension)
    for example: "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcd"

    at 83 it will not load the index.htm and jump back to main menu.

    However every spacebar used in the file name will reduce the file name length by 2
    because spacebar in xml is represented by %20 or 3 characters,
    [ is %5B also 3 characters.
    For example,

    "The Chronicles of Narnia The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe" has 50 alphabets and 10 spacebars.
    Total characters = 50 + (10 x 3) = 80. So its ok.

    If you add 3 more alphabets to the file name, it will be 80 + 3 = 83 like:
    "The Chronicles of Narnia The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobeabc",
    then it will jump back to main menu
    OR
    If you add a spacebar,
    it will also jump back to main menu.
    BUT
    adding 2 more is ok like for instance:
    "The Chronicles of Narnia The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobeab"


    [/list]

here you can find a nice simplified how to from Insomnia: "Engelse YAMJ howto simplified"
with also info for mac users.


Thanks Guy`s for all the help you gave on this topic.

Dirk ;)

Is it possible to search at imdb (for example http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0795176/) and override the default settings, when your default mjb.internet.plugin is com.moviejukebox.plugin.MovieMeterPlugin.

I have tried this whit NFO file without succes


Hi Erik, if you have followed the steps in these HOWTO then the internet plugin for moviemeter will override the default internet plugin located in the moviejukebox_default.properties which is the ImdB plugin.
Your Moviemeter plugin is located in the moviejukebox.properties which is in the C:\YAMJ folder. ( If you followd the steps in the HOWTO.) Just put a comment (#) for the line mjb.internet.plugin=com.moviejukebox.plugin.MovieMeterPlugin in the moviejukebox.properties and it will use the default one in the moviejukebox_default.properties.

When you want to watch a DVD movie ( VIDEO_TS folder) then you need to change the link in the xml file of that movie, because there is a part in the link missing.
Search in the jukebox folder for the xml file of the DVD movie you want to play.
Open this xml file with an editor like Wordpad or Notepad and search for the link:
<fileURL>fiel://../movie/dvd/name of the movie/VIDEO_TS</fileURL> and add /VIDEO_TS.IFO after VIDEO_TS
like in this example:
<fileURL>file://../movie/dvd/Sherlock%20Holmes%202009/VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO</fileURL>


If you have many DVD movies or you don’t trust yourself in editing the xml file our forum member roger.yvonne
made a small program to do the job.
For the people who want to use this we add point number 12 below.
But first you have to download the zip-file and extract it in the main folder of YAMJ.
So stay in folder C:\YAMJ

Please log this as an issue on the Google Code page so that it can be fixed in a future version

This particular problem should be fixed in r1337 of YAMJ.

You will need to set the property "mjb.PlayOnHD=true" in your moviejukebox.properties
file. See this wiki page: http://code.google.com/p/moviejukebox/wiki/PlayOnHD

You will also need to re-generate your jukebox for those movies affected

Hi Omertron,

I just got this message from moviejukebox. I will ask Dirk to add it to the English and Dutch HOWTO.
Thanks. :D
