ffmpeg is an external program, and as far as I know there is no way to launch it quietly.

There is a section on this page that describes how to start an invisible process, it may be of help.

http://www.thescarms.com/dotnet/Process.aspx

Thanks for the link, i've been using the shell command to run ffmpeg, eg
Code:
Shell(instruction)

The process method is a little longer but a lot more versatile, eg.
Code:
Dim myProcess As Process = New Process
myProcess.StartInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden
myProcess.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = False
myProcess.StartInfo.FileName = applicationpath & "\ffmpeg.exe"
Dim proc_arguments As String = "-r 1 -b 1800 -qmax 6 -i """ & applicationpath & "\Settings\%03d.jpg"" -vcodec msmpeg4v2 """ & mediapath & """"
myProcess.StartInfo.Arguments = proc_arguments
myProcess.Start()
myProcess.WaitForExit()
This runs silently, with no more interuptions Smile

Offline collections works great, but I have a question. I don't use the dvd cases, but have all the movies stored in dvd binders to save space. Is there any way that I could add a location (i.e. Binder 1, page 1) that would be read by the application, or XBMC? Could I manually enter something in the xml file for the movie location?

something like <location>Binder 1, page 1</location>

would that work?
