How to add a video file with an extension that is not supported by Movienizer?

Movienizer can catalog your movies in absolutely any video format. However, its file scanner supports only the most popular video file extensions, such as AVI, MKV etc. If you stumble upon a movie file that is not seen by the file scanner of the program, there are several ways of adding it.

1. Add the new file extension to the list.

Movienizer allows you to edit the list of supported file extensions. Just click the "File scanner settings" link in the "Add movie" window and enter the extension that you need the program to recognize.

Edit file extensions

2. Add the video file in the "Add movie" dialog.

In the "Add movie" dialog, select "From files and folders":

Add a movie to the database from a file

Click the folder icon next to the "Select files with movies:" field (see the screenshot above).

This will take you to the "Open file" dialog:

Open video file of any type

From the "Files of type" menu at the bottom of the dialog, select "All files (*.*)". Then select your video file and click "Open".

This will add the file to the list, and now you can proceed adding the movie as usual.

Proceed with downloading information about the movie

3. Add movie by its title, then link it to the video file.

Here is another option for adding such movies. In the "Add movie" dialog, choose to add movie by its title (the default option) and proceed as usual: enter the title of the movie, click "Next", select the correct result from the search results list.

After downloading information about the movie, go to the "Editions" tab.

Add a link to the video file for the movie

Click the folder icon next to the "Filename" field (see the screenshot above). This will take you to the open file dialog:

Open video file of any type

From the "Files of type" menu at the bottom of the window select "All files (*.*)", then select your movie file and confirm with "Open".

Now you are back to the "Editions" tab. Click "Reload" to read parameters of the file, then "Save" to close the window and save changes to the database.

Now Movienizer has the correct movie added and properly linked to the corresponding video file.
