When a company does something gratuitously nice for the customer, I think it deserves a little praise. Below is a screen shot of an email that I just received from Netflix, an unlimited movie rental service. I pay a monthly fee for the two-DVDs-at-a-time plan.
I just finished making some updates to DVD Cover Art Finder. It now has some new features and fewer bugs!
I have invested a lot of time and storage space ripping whole DVDs to my computer. This worked out great, because there is a hidden feature in Windows Vista Media Center for viewing DVDs that have been ripped to hard drives. This worked pretty well, but reveling the menu required changing a value in the registry, and the feature wasn’t very polished, which is likely why it was hidden in the first place. Things have changed in the Windows 7 Beta.
Now there is a “movies” menu front and center in Media Center’s start menu.
As promised, here is the first release of DVD Cover Art Finder (version 188.8.131.52), along with the source code. Read on for download links and a usage tutorial.
I hopped to get it out today, but that will have to wait until tomorrow.
