TV Scraper support for playlist files (e.g. m3u8) - LehighBri - 2012-02-03 21:10
Is there a way to enhance a TV scraper somehow to support scanning .m3u8 playlist files?
The use case is that I am using SageTV to record TV and a new plugin called SageSync that looks at the single directory that SageTV records to, creates a folder structure that aligns to the folder structure XBMC expects, and creates a .m3u8 playlist per SageTV recording.
e.g. the directory structure is like
----.m3u8 playlist files
When I point XBMC to that directory using TVDB scraper, it successfully scans for the name of the TV show and pulls in the fanart and metadata, but it does NOT detect any episodes and thinks each show has 0 episodes.
Example .m3u8 file:
filename: The Office-S08E06-Doomsday-4582346.m3u8

UPDATE: In renaming the .m3u8 playlist files to just .m3u, the TVDB scraper does indeed recognize the .m3u file as an episode and pulls in the appropriate metadata and fanart just great. Any reason why the scraper doesn't support .m3u8 files?
