just had some initial success with music. one of my problems with music on the 360 is it doesnt let your browse by folders. instead it goes off of album/artist/genre metadata ... assuming your metadata isnt screwed up. plus the metadata is stored in a library, and its easy for a lib to get out of sync. i'm writing mine a little bit different, so that it doesnt use metadata at all and only works off of files and folders. so if you request artists/album/genre, it ignores those specific requests and returns folders every time. if you drill into one of those folders, then it returns files within that folder. if you select Songs, then it returns all files. for metadata like duration/bitrate/sampleFrequency/bitRate/nrAudioChannels/... it just returns 0 for all, and the 360 doesnt seem to care. working off a small test dir right now. what i need to do is point it against a large library and see if its any faster. got at least 1 bug to fix before i get to that. then i've got something else to try ... more on that later.
