My Movies Beta Adds Webcam Barcode Scanning

Perhaps it's because I didn't have a spell in supermarket retail when I was younger, but the idea of scanning barcodes and getting that "beep!" sound makes me all a-quiver.  Someone at My Movies obviously feels the same, because they've released a beta of v.2.20 of their Windows Media Centre plug-in that uses a standard webcam to scan in DVD barcodes and add those to the database.

On its eventual full-release there'll be a growing, user-contributed store of front and rear DVD covers that'll automatically be added to your own collection.
