We all know that cladding the Media with Cover Arts is a very time consuming task. What if there is a way to get a solution to this problem. DTI Automation Pvt. Ltd. is pleased to introduce CoverMe a Control4 driver to fetch High resolution Cover Art with all the movie details like Synopsis, Cast/Crew, Ratings, Director, Genre for your Movie Database within a few Clicks.

 

Features :

 

It fetches from the internet and injects into the Control4 Interface below given attributes of the information:

 

> Injects High Resolution Cover Art.

> Injects Actor Information.

> injects Director Information.

> Injects Genre.

> Injects Rating.

> Injects Synopsis.

> Injects Official Release Date of the Movie.

 

Primary features to be considered as an optimal solution for existing limitations:

·         Synchronizes automatically and adds movies into Control4 database, so no more Control4 native media scan every time you add/remove/rename movie/s.

·         No necessity of any Intermediate device for the synchronization, eg. PC, Mac, Laptop.

·         Automatically renames the movies with the Official Release Title and Release Year of that movie (Example: If the movie is named as “silence.of.the.lambs.1080p.BrRip.xyz.ABC.iso”, then this driver automatically renames the file with Official Movie Title & Release Year “The Silence of the Lambs (1991)” in all of the Control4 Interface).

Enable a scheduled scan for custom daily/weekly/monthly updates.

 

FAQ :

Question 1: Will I need a Media Player or the Control4 is enough to play the movies?

 

Answer: You will obviously need a Media Player, duh! Basically you have to have a media player that is compatible to play movies from Control4 Interface, namely Dune, Mede8er, Popcorn, and many more.

 

Question 2: What if there is just no Cover Art for some specific movie?

Answer: Please check the movie title and its release year, then rename that specific with new details (Title & Year) that you've fetched. Re-scan. Perhaps, this kind of situation is more likely to happen only twice or thrice in a thousand movies.

 

Question 3: What if I have personal videos in my storage. In this case how does this Cover Art feature work?

Answer: We've set up an inbuilt function, wherein the cases like yours, it will automatically place the default Cover Art for personal videos.

The feature of Music is streaming but still i will Consider this in my next to do list.

CoverMe help user who has large collection of Movies and user with DVD and bluray rips.

I get that is is important for heavy movie users. Had that discussion elsewhere on here. I was late to the movie server party and at this point UV and VUDU or Kalidescape when I'm feeling speedy is my preferred solution there.

As a child of the 80s wwith an eextensive ripped CD collection. Oh yes bought a 40gb gen 2 iPod. I have the same problem with music.

Streaming. Like movies Works to a point. No Prince. Discovered Pet Shop boys album 4. Behavior is not on streaming for no great reason. So back to local media.
