May 15, 2012 - Required Update Announcement
Due to security changes in communication with our online service, our users is requested to update their user clients before June 1'st 2012. The software will continue to operate after this date, but will after this date no longer be able to load meta-data from our online service.
Users running My Movies for Windows Media Center or My Movies Collection Management 4.00 or 4.01 for Windows 7 is required to upgrade to version 4.02 or later.
Users running My Movies for Windows Media Center or My Movies Collection Management 3 for Windows Vista is required to upgrade to version 3.25 or later.
Users running My Movies for Windows Home Server 2011 is required to upgrade to version 2.10 or later.
Users running My Movies for Windows Home Server V1 is only required to upgrade if client PC's are upgraded to a version that requires a later version on their Home Server.
Users running My Movies 2 for Windows Media Center 2005 will for now not be required an update. However, we strongly recommend getting these systems upgraded to Windows 7.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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@example.com, 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.

August 1, 2010 - My Movies for iPhone Pro
The My Movies for iPhone Pro application was originally promised to be released on August 1st, where My Movies for iPhone Light would be limited to 100 titles except for users with 2500 points or more. Due to different difficulties with an external library and changes in Apple terms, the release has been delayed, and is for the second time still waiting for review by Apple.
To ensure that no user has problems with the 100 title limitation without the option to upgrade to Pro because of it not being available, we have made a change on our API to trick the software to temporary think that all users have 2500 points or more. This means that we will push the 100 title limitation date to August 15th, or even later should the application not be available by that date.
The application was originally put in the review queue on the 14th of July, but was unfortunately rejected by Apple, because of change of guidelines since iOS4. My Movies have licensed barcode scanning technology from RedLaser, as RedLaser have the fastest and most reliable barcode scanning technology, and is the only one available that supports 3G phones. RedLaser has used an undocumented "UIGetScreenImage" function in the iPhone SDK, which Apple officially allowed usage of in late 2009, with the note that "future release of iPhone OS may provide a public API equivalent of this functionality. At such time, all applications using UIGetScreenImage() will be required to adopt the public API."
This future release was then iOS4, and without noticing RedLaser, Apple from the release day of iOS4 started to reject all applications using RedLaser technology, due to the UIGetScreenImage usage, without giving RedLaser and their customers a period to change their source code. This kind of strange behavior from Apple affected us as well, as we have had to wait for RedLaser to provide an updated API, which they did on Thursday the 29th of July.
The change to our application was uploaded to Apple on Friday the 30th of July, and is now again waiting for review. We are confident that the application will be approved this time, however we do not have a date of availability - we know, however, that it typically takes 7-10 days to review applications.
The worst thing about Apples behavior in this relation is that all applications containing barcode scanning will now be rejected until changed to not use the "UIGetScreenImage" function, which can only be used on iOS4. This basically means that all applications containing barcode scanning, no matter which library it uses will be forced to upgrade the application to iOS4; they cannot create a simple bug fix release if they wanted to stay on earlier versions such as 3.2. My Movies for iPhone Pro uses some functionalities in iOS4, and would therefore be released as an iOS4 application despite this - it will however affect a future update to My Movies for iPhone Light where we plan to include a free barcode scanning library, which again forces us to upgrade My Movies for iPhone Light to iOS4.
We hope for your understanding in this situation, and I can ensure you that we are just as eager to get My Movies for iPhone Pro released as I know many of you are.
July 23, 2010 - GD3 Music Meta Data
High quality music meta-data from GD3 is now included as a default part of My Movies for Windows Home Server. Music meta-data from GD3 have, until now, been available exclusively to our registered installers, but as of today automatically available on all installations of My Movies for Windows Home Server version 22.214.171.124 or later.

June 4, 2010 - My Movies 3.14 Pre Release 1
My Movies 3.14 Pre Release 1 is now available on the download page. This release fixes a few minor issues, and is mainly a release for users of the Dune player index, as well as a preparing for My Movies for iPhone Pro.
There is some preparation in the code for future support for an SQL Server Compact database, which means that there are some larger changes in the back-end system. If this gives any problems, please create a support ticket in the forums.
February 15'th 2010 - License violations
Our product licensing terms prohibits professionals from using the products without being part of our installer program and purchasing a license key for the product. Unfortunately, many professionals choose to ignore this fact, which harms the business for the installers who correctly purchases the licenses, and it harms the development of the My Movies project.
The unlicensed systems can be identified using the "About" page in Windows Media Center, which lists the license as a "Personal Edition". If you have purchased a PC with My Movies preinstalled as such "Personal Edition", or if you see such license used on a professional product in a computer store, on an electronics show or similar, we ask that you send us a tip to firstname.lastname@example.org including the company name and contact information, and preferably a photo of the product showing the "About" page.
For each confirmed incident, we will reward you with 2,500 points for your My Movies account for your help.
