Managing Your Media Libraries

Terry Walsh

  • If your digital music, video and TV collection feels like it’s starting to rival the archives of the British Museum and Guggenheim combined, then it’s time to get organised!

    As featured in Building a Windows 10 Home Server - Anniversary Update Edition, in Managing Your Media Libraries we’ll show you how you can stay in control of your growing media libraries, with the help of smart apps and online services.

    You’ve seen those images of awesome looking media libraries online - generally attached to a premium priced media server, home theatre PC or custom installation service advert, right? Well, there’s no need to spend thousands of bucks, pounds or any other currency you may pick on getting your media library to look just as groovy. With the right tools, and a little bit of time, you can achieve the same effect on your own media collection.

    That means automatically downloaded movie posters, plot summaries, cast and crew information, actor thumbnails and movie ratings from critics far and wide. The same for the TV programmes stored on your home server, NAS or PC. For your Music, grab track details, album information and reviews, track times, lyrics and high-quality artwork.

    We'll also talk about the horrors of mangled photo libraries. How to automatically identify and tackle duplicate and triplicate images, sorting through libraries of thousands of photos with mismatched naming structures, populating your images with metadata and using that information to automatically organise your library by name, date, location, resolution and more! 

    It’s all out there - meticulously catalogued by enthusiast developers and free online services, as well as some of your favourite retailers. You just need to know how to get it - actually, you just need to know how to tell your computer to get it and then let it get to work. 

    Packed with easy to understand hints and tips, this guide will help you master your media library, once and for all!
