View Full Version : A Media Centre program I am working on called MediaFox

February 7th, 2010, 10:45
MediaFox™ 1.02 Beta

Hey Guys

I'd like to share a program that I sometimes work on - a Media Center / Movie Browser


1st run Tutorial:
- Run Media Fox.exe
- Add your Root Movie directory, eg: "c:\Movies" as a Media path
- Click Accept

That's it!

- Your movies need to be in individual Folders. ie: each movie must be contained in it's own SubDirectory / Folder
- Please make sure your Movies' Folder name is named appropriately, so Covers & Info can be downloaded. ( eg. "The Matrix" is correct, but "The_Matrx(1999).ENG_Axxo_Sub" is wrong )
- When playing a movie, there are no controls to forward/rewind yet - only Pause(left click) and Exit (right click)

-If you get "Convert.exe" Errors, you need to install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable (1.7mb) (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=9B2DA534-3E03-4391-8A4D-074B9F2BC1BF&displaylang=en)

Please give me feedback on what you guys think ;)

I just tried it, works great :D Will it support music?

February 7th, 2010, 12:58
when it's out of beta it will support:
Movies, Blu-rays, Series, Documentaries, Imax Movies, Music Albums, Games, PDF Books and Emulator ROMS in the same fashion - a complete Media Browser!

some users beta testing this on another forum is having some problems with window7 especially

what OS are you using and did you have any problems running it, or difficulties understanding it?

Windows XP, and none. Works great :D Did you program this yourself?

Macfee Virus scanner is terrified of it :eek: (win32/sality.gen apparently)

?But yeah doesn't work on 7 :/

nah, not a virus - it's a false positive.

I would never give keeper klan guys a virus :D

@ A New Room - perhaps you can try running it in winXP Mode, Admin privilages?

Right click on the exe and set it there

do it for all 3 exe's - mediafox.exe, update.exe, and convert.exe found in the mediafox\system folder

mind trying that for me? :o

thanks in advance

If you packed and uploaded this Blutonium is suggest you do a virus scan. From what is being detected the virus injects itself into other EXE's which is how you may of unwillingly and unknowingly passed on a virus. For now i've removed the download link to avoid further spread.

Disinfected scan:

All who ran this program you have been infected, i suggest you scan your computer for virus.

Its a known problem with "multimedia builder" EXE's (The program i use to make other programs)

You see, some people code viruses with MMB and them my EXE gets reported as a virus as it has the same signature since they were both compiled with "MMB"


but ok - no worries :D

i'll try to fix it sometime by using different compression algorithms on the exe

i'm also learning other scripting software that won't do this... MMB is abandonware anyways....

i'm just too dumb to code in C++ etc :D :D :D

anyway - here is a video of MediaFox in action

It's just that the virus report ís so clear and so so consistent that i have a very hard time dismssing it as a false positive, but if you can fix it by all means do im sure there are plenty there are interested in the program :)

Stupid me I clicked the wrong thing :p

Looks very good. I like the overall set up and plays movies fantasticly.

The only issue I have is that it forces my screen into the wrong resolution, which makes everything a tad blurry.

Edit: oh and it seems to by default ramp my sound up to maximum volume, which is quite loud and quite shocking to my ears. O.o

But over all I really am quite impressed :D

Edit: Oh god! There really is a virus :eek:

I have a one folder which is just 300gbs of replicated files :p

wait, what?

are you joking or not?

what folder?! :eek:

i'm recoding the whole thing in another software called "neobook" - it works 100% in windows 7, has no false virus reports, and is quite fast

i know about the false positive thing, but if you have a folder with 300gb then i think I have a virus and it attached itself onto the exe AS WELL

so if that is the case then just delete the whole mediafox folder, zipfile and run a scan to remove it

Don't worry I got it under control :cool:

It was in the file I installed it in.
