It's nice to meat another developer. ^^
ViMM is actually written in REALStudio in the 'BASIC' language, I think that was a close match to the .Net language, but produces native apps.
I don't know any Objective-C yet, but I hope someday I will.
And you were right, it's trying to use a non existing folderitem when there are no folder items existing, I don't know why I did that.
I should have a fix for that when I release the next beta.

Deleting the preferences xml worked, it now displays the images properly.
This is happening a few times when fetching metadata for a movie... (see pic)
Uploaded with ImageShack.us
Also, is it possible to add the ability to have the nfo saved as movie.nfo instead of <the_movie_name>.nfo?
As for the sorting by status on tv shows, I think it would be better to sort by continuing (green), hiatus (yellow) and then ended (red), instead of the way it is now (green, red, yellow)
Thanks and keep up the good work,

That's just themoviedb being unresponsive. Can't fault vimm for that. But ... would be nice of those errors would just queue up and be displayed at the end all at once when doing a full metadata scan for the library That way you can simply let it run in the background

Most of my movies are in a single folder named Movies, with just a few being in their own individual folders (subfolders under Movies).
When I add the Movies folder, only those movies in subfolders show. The ones at the top level of the Movies folder don't.
Am I doing something wrong, or does the application only look at the subfolders?

Why don't you put them in individual subfolders?

As you can read in the FAQ of my first post, the app only looks at folders, this is because XBMC can pick up on posters, fanart and trailers that belong with a movie much easier if they are in the same subfolder then if all movies, NFO files, trailers and images are thrown together into a pile.
To make it easier to sort all those loose movies into folders, you can select the 'Tools' menu and choose the 'Sort Movie Files Into Folders' or 'Sort Files into Folders', which will automatically create folders for each movie file it can find and stuff the movie files into those folders.
After that you can refresh the list, and your movies will show up.
As an extra, once you've downloaded information for all your movies, you can use the 'Tools' menu to rename those folders into something like '<Movie Title> (2011)' if you like.

@Zenshi & Pecinko:
Well, as the text reads, the service was apparently unavailable while you were scraping for info. To you guys this would mean that you might want to try again later.
To me this means that I’ve got some hiding of untidy code to do that shows a prettier message then a HTML page.
I'm actually pretty sure that it only shows this message if you're searching for only 1 movie or tv show at a time, and not when you're doing a mass update.
When doing a mass update it checks to see if it finds a valid XML file, and if not it doesn't do anything and goes to the next movie.
As for the status order, it’s currently just sorted on alphabetical status (G-R-Y), but I concur that traffic light order makes more sense.
There's actually a hidden/secret fourth status called 'Future show', in case you add tv shows that haven't been aired just yet. ^^
Think that one should be at the bottom or top?

Yes, the "error" message was always shown to me when fetching metadata one at a time.
Future shows I think should definitely be on the bottom.

I just tried to re-sort my movie collection by folder (instead of status), and it crashes ViMM.
If I start in debug mode, it opens fine. I can change it back to status, restart the program, and all is well. As soon as I change the option to folder, it crashes again.
Error message: An exception of class OutOfBoundsException was not handled. The application must shut down.
