NEW FILEBOT RELEASE-Multi platform lightweight nfo/art fetcher [HOWTO] - zeltak - 2012-01-06 16:20
With the latest release of Filebot (a multi platform robust and light wieght media file renamer) there is support through the command line tools for fetching nfo and movie/episode/fanart in XBMC format.
The use is pretty simple. first download the latest version of filebot:
then either install it or use the Executable Jar.
fire up the command line in your favorite OS
for movies issue the following command:
or if using the stand alone executable:
1)you dont need to use the full call to the java exec if you installed filbot on your pc
2)make sure to direct the script to the root folder of your movie collection (the same root folder you use in the xbmc movie collection).
this will go over your movies, download nfo files and artwork for movies it has a positive match and if not sure will pop up a GUI window so you can choose the correct movie
For TV Shows
for TV shows issue the following command:
again make sure to direct the script to the root folder of your TV collection (the same root folder you use in the xbmc TV collection).
You can use the normall command line arguments you can use with all other filebot scrips (and there are alot more usfell ones chek them out here:
For example one can use the --q option to specift the exact movie/tv show you want to get info foR :
to the above commands (works both for tv shows and movies) to specify a specific movie/series.
Ive been using the scripts for a while and they work great. this is finally a rock solid, light weight (can run on a headless server) multi platform solution (Yes for linux too, which most supplemental tools tend to ignore..)
Try it out
thx for rednoah (the Dev) for this awsome release!
