My Movies for Windows 5.10 Pre Release 8, no longer with the 2500 points restriction

My Movies have been working on a new version of My Movies for Windows and there is a new pre-release build ready for testing. Since I last wrote about Version 5.10 Pre Release there has been Pre Release 7 and yesterday Pre Release 8. You no longer need to have over 2500 points to try out the pre-release so anybody can grab the new build and give it a go.

The changes in PR8 include a fix when adding multi-selection titles, in PR7 there is a new contributions guide and a number of fixes. Go to for the download link.


5.10 Pre Release 8:

Fix: Pre Release 7 contained a fix to avoid allowing multi-selection in the add titles dialog. This fixed ended up resulting in a new bug where the dialog would continue to prompt you to select a title when adding titles. The original fix have been reverted, and will be addressed again in a future release.

5.10 Pre Release 7:

Added: Movie Contribution Guide link added to help menu.

Change: Moved contribution comment prompt to before the file upload.
Change: Contribution encouragement for disc titles is no longer done through a popup message, but shown in the top of the profile in Collection Management instead. Just as it does with Movies and TV Series.

Fix: Collection numbers were sometimes shown on movies and TV series under disc titles.
Fix: Contribution of movie data failed due to an incorrect order of parameters.
Fix: Titles for movies were stored as empty strings and not null values, meaning titles with inherited data did not display the title in Windows Media Center.
Fix: Movie profiles displayed with “slim” view, even if “detailed” view was configured.
Fix: Playback from UNC paths could fail on Windows 7 Embedded, as it did not have a patch that Windows 7 SP1 had. This attempts to bring back some old code to correct that.
Fix: Non-disc based based TV Series were not displayed if you configured to show TV Series on disc as disc titles.
Fix: If you selected to show disc titles with movies as movie data, the not existing group selection on the movie was used and not the disc titles group.
Fix: Some disc connected movies was not downloaded after database restore.
Fix: Bug made it impossible to create manually added TV Series.
Fix: If a movie title was connected to multiple disc titles, it would say no playback options were available on playback.
Fix: Purchase price and value per amount was -1 when editing personal data for movies, when not set.
Fix: It was possible to make multi select in the search results when adding titles. This is now removed.
Fix: User selected backdrops could be overwritten if backdrop update from service was enabled.
Fix: Locally created movies weren’t removed from connected disc titles if the movie was deleted.
Fix: TV Series episodes were not correctly coupled to mapped disc titles in some scenarios.
