Users running systems installed by a licensed professional My Movies installer will also not be required to update unless they are also signed into a user account, which is optional on these installations.

If you are in any way have problems with upgrading, or is unsure how to do this, please contact [email protected] where we are able to help you.

Notice! The latest versions of the My Movies product suite have it’s internal “mymovies.xml” files encrypted. If you as a professional partner, or supplier of non-competitive software solutions rely on these files, you may contact us on[email protected], where we will be able to suggest optional alternatives.

The files were originally encrypted due to the fact that other software products were creating these files considered internal by My Movies, causing problems for My Movies installations. One of the softwares that until recently was using the “mymovies.xml” files is MediaBrowser, which have since changed their used format to “movie.xml”. The encryption of the “mymovies.xml” files is known to have caused problems for users of both My Movies and MediaBrowser, and we will as of My Movies 4.03 (from Pre Release 4) be offering an option to store “movie.xml” files for use with MediaBrowser. This option will, as MediaBrowser is a partly paid-for competitive software require 500 contribution or purchased points, which equals $20 if purchased.
