Hi I just installed the 3DS Movie Viewer (cia) on my new 2dsxl and it plays some titles great so far, but I'm having 2 issues:
  1. Every single moflex movie displays in duplicates in the player. It will have, for example, "Finding Nemo" then right below it a nonworking ".__Finding Nemo". This is for every single movie I have on my SD root. Is this normal or how can I delete the duplicate files?

  2. Also, some of my moflex movies/shows are not showing up in the movie player... is there a limit to the # of titles you can have?
Thank you!

It plays the whole movie as far as I'm seeing. The video player is a CIA file and it plays moflex formatted movies/shows only (I found my movies on 3dsiso's threads)

Yes if it's moflex just put it on the root of your SD and the movie viewer will automatically detect it. Where did you get the movie viewer? Maybe mine is outdated?

I've been using windows 7 & added about 60 films no duplicates
The duplicates are caused by the odd way that OS X handles its search metadata. Instead of making an index like Windows does, it makes a metadata file right next to every file it finds. I have no clue why it needs this file, no other OS needs an entire additional file for every file to store all the information they need. These metadata files have the exact same name as the files they're based on, they just have a ._ appended to the beginning (so file.ext would have a metadata file called ._file.ext). The issue is that all of these metadata files have the exact same extension as the source file. It sees movie.moflex and ._movie.moflex, so it assumes they must both be videos as they both end in .moflex.

Totally off topic sorry OP
But you seem to know you're 3DS stuff & I'm new to this system ... Has anyone made a MOD that improves the 3D... As in reducing Ghosting..?.. Made it more stable in any way ? As I really think it's cool... In some games I'm playing Zelda OTT again after about 20 years . & loving the new graphics ect and 3D .. It's just not 100% stable.. I know light and things effect it...
