Where to put things on Pony[edit]

DO NOT PUT ANYTHING IN /d1/videos/ ! The Media Center will not see it.

DO NOT PUT MATERIAL ON PONY UNLESS THE LICENSE FOR THE CONTENT LETS YOU!

Movies[edit]

XBMC on the Media Center machine will scrape /d1/videos/movies/ for any movies. If you have something you'd like to show up on the media center that's a movie, dump it into /d1/videos/movies/ (be nice and create a sub directory for it). Either restart XBMC or go into the Movie Library, press C then Update Library to have the content show up in the Movie Library. If it doesn't show up, check the Videos window and see if it's there under Pony Movies.

Shows[edit]

XBMC on the Media Center Machine will scrape /d1/videos/shows/ for any shows. If you have something you'd like to show up on the media center that's a show, dump it into /d1/videos/shows/ (be nice and create a sub directory for it). Either restart XBMC or go into the Show Library, press C then Update Library to have the content show up in the Show Library. If it doesn't show up, check the Videos window and see if it's there under Pony Shows.

Random Videos[edit]

Dump it into /d1/videos/random/. Use the Video Window to find it under Pony Random.
