I was already thinking of the bottom of the movie information, which could fairly easily fit a breadcrumb path, at least to some extend, lots of blank space there. Wink

Just a small update while i'm working on 0.6:

v0.5.3 10/10/2011
-----------------
* [New] Added the option to sort by rating.
* [Dif] Added 2 new video filetypes for support in scanning.

Hey, just wanna say great job on this! I second the request for download subtitle, that would make this a complete media manager for xbmc..

At the moment I'm scraping with Ember and creating sets and media info then running through ViMediaManger and getting better quality artwork and trailers.

I've noticed when processing my bluray rips if the file is .ts, after being scraped by ember the .nfo file doesn't get noticed in ViMediaManager.

If I scrape it with ViMediaManger it creates a new nfo along side the original ember nfo called movie.nfo not Batman 1989.bluray.nfo.
The same file in a .mkv gets noticed in ViMediaManager without any problems.
I haven't tried .m2ts files.

How far off is getting mediainfo working with ViMediaManager?

Do you have your ViMM preferences set tho create the filename you're after? I figure if you have it set to create a "movie.nfo" then it will probably ignore a file named with "Batman 1989.bluray.nfo" (which is "<movie>.nfo" in the preferences).

I've found a way to intergrate MediaInfo, but I'll be saving it for the first 0.6 release.

.ts and .m2ts files should be recognized in ViMM 0.5.3, could you check weather you've got the latest version of ViMediaManager?

I have the preferences set to <movie>.nfo. If there is a .nfo already there for a .ts file (created by ember) it creates movie.nfo.

I just updated to 0.5.3 and now it's fine! Big Grin

Sweet! Get sets and mediainfo sorted and ember and windows can go bye bye!Nod

I've been doing this the hard way using a VM running WinXP and YANFOE. I'm very glad I happened across this! Keep up the good work. I'll be donating.

I am having some issues whenever ViMM gets to a movie it can't locate. It throws an exception and states the program must be shut down. So I manually do those, but I wouldn't think if a movie scrape came back NULL that it just die.

Anyway, I haven't taken a screenshot of the error just yet, but if you need it I can. Heck, for all I know this is a known error, but I didn't see it come up in a search.

Speak of the devil - it just threw another one. This is the message:

An exception of class NilObjectException was not handled. The application must shut down.

Hope it helps. Oh and I'm on 10.7.2 if that matters any. Also, it only happens when I'm doing a "Fetch All". If I do manual fetch and correct it it's OK.

Hi MariusTh86, and chance of getting your wonderful tool to recognize .strm files as well so I use it with IceLibrary files? Thx for the great work so far!

Quote:ClearArts, Logo’s and TV Thumbs are currently not auto downloaded because they’re from a different website then the TVDB’s, I may create an extra step in the future, inside the program to automatically download the first ClearArt, Logo or TV thumb available on scraping a tv show.
i'm so happy i found this app, but i must say that having to do this individually really slows things down. is there any progress on this?

another note, it would be nice to be able to turn off the delete function, if i want to rescrape my library, then batch meta data is pointless when i have to click a 1000 times

thanks

Hi Marius. I have another wish beside the set support.
Maybe for Version 2.5 ;-)

How about a concert section? In xbmc there is a Musikvideo db which could hold em. Here is a nice scraper which does a good work. http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?p=909830
But there is no way to get the .nfo files with Vimedia cause it will only produce nfos for Movie section.

I think there is a large amount of users looking for something like that. and I think no mediamanager does that.

Just a dream.
And keep up the good work, its getting better every release!


- MariusTh86 - 2011-10-14 10:08

@Tuckbodi:
.strm will be added in the next release. Wink

@Prophetizer:
No progress on automatically adding the extra art yet, but it should be ready in the 0.6 release.
And it'll skip the delete prior art dialog when doing a mass search in the next release.

@Macsorzist:
I'm not sure what the differences are between a music movie and a regular movie? if you have or know of an example XML file, let me know and i'll have a look.

@ionblue:
Well, it shouldn't be throwing those exceptions at your nose like that, does it happen with specific movies? or just at random? do you think that it can't locate the files on disk or the metadata on the internet?


- Macsorzist - 2011-10-14 10:18

Here is the link to the wiki with the discription of the different nfo files. http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Import_-_Export_Library#Music_Videos
Its very cool if you could seperate the from the movies, it works very well with the musicvideo section. Especially if you have a huge collection.
