Hi, big question here:

I have a movie list of 100+ movies of just titles and no covers for each movie, and the Coollector has found them all and matched them perfectly, however is there a way to copy all those movies covers from the Coollector program to each movie folder automatically?

Thanks for the help!

We don't have such a feature. What would be the use? Please explain.

Well when you have thousands of movies in separate folders and no covers, then you search through the list on a media box or computer there are no covers so you have to actually read through each title :)

Coollector is designed for that purpose. You scan your disk with the menu "Tools->Scan my video files", and Coollector automatically associates each file with the corresponding movie. Instead of browsing your disk, you browse Coollector. You have the movie poster, the cast, the genre, you can rate the movie, etc... And you launch a video by clicking the "play" icon. Browsing your directory structure is prehistory!

Am I missing something? Why did you use a list? Where did it come from?

Yes but that's a software. I wanted coollector to organize my movie list which is great it does that but I want to view and go through my hard drive of movies on my TV box. So I can't really use the software on the tvbox so was wondering if it was possible to export those covers and have them in each directory for the movie.

I don't really understand your case scenario. What kind of TV box do you have? Where did the list come from? Did it contain the path of the folders? Are there rules to naming the movie posters? How would it work with series?

Please understand that I can only consider adding a feature if it'll be useful to a significant number of users.

Not a problem :)

I have attached an image to show you.

For instance, I have a folder category DRAMA in a hard drive. I have DRAMA movies in that folder and I want to put covers for each of these movies as I only have the MKV files...

Then I want to take this hard drive and plug it into my TV to my XBMC box to watch the movies on the TV

Ok, I see, it's an XBMC box. I'm sorry, currently we don't export to XBMC/Kodi, but there are many other program who do. Even XBMC itself can scan your files. Why would you use Coollector? What would you gain from it?

Also, what's the operating system of your box? Is it Android or is it a home theater PC/MAC? I ask this because the interface of Coollector is about to evolve in order to make it a pretty decent media center on its own (fullscreen slick layout, easy navigation with a remote).
