RE: [WIP] AniDB.net Anime Video Scraper - Rebelyouth - 2012-06-05 02:09

Hi,
I'm using xbmc 11 with Anidb scraper 2.0...the problem is : I get banned all the time!!!!
Before all was ok but now I get banned after use for a minute or two...I waited a week to used again but same result , so I went to anidb's irc an this is the log :

rebelyouth>: hi
<rebelyouth>: I have one question: I'm using xbmc with the anidb scraper and when I tried to update it I always get a ban, this is happening for couples of weeks...any idea why?
<DerIdiot>: then talk to the developers of xbmc and tell them that
<DerIdiot>: the api bans naughty clients
<rebelyouth>: But I received a ban form anidb ..you think is a bug of xbmc?
<DerIdiot>: ...
<rebelyouth>: k
<DerIdiot>: whatever code they have running ther eis THEIR code
<rebelyouth>: but the scraper is the same I always used in the past
<DerIdiot>: our api allows for data being pulled, but there are limits you have to respect otherwise you get a kick iun the balls
<rebelyouth>: they didn't change
<DerIdiot>: still their problem and not ours
<rebelyouth>: got it...tnx
<DerIdiot>: clearly they are doing somethign stupid
<DerIdiot>: probalby not respecting the server is busy response and keep on hammering instead
<rebelyouth>: ok I will contact the XBMC's people an let them know..tnx for ur help
<DerIdiot>: anidb is not imdb
<DerIdiot>: you can't keep on hammering
<DerIdiot>: we do not have the ressources for shit like that


I'm using the default setting an also tried to roll back...any idea why i have this problem?
Tnx

Hello All,

I'm having a recent issue today getting data from anidb, is this just an outage or do I need to change something on my end? I've already cleared my sources but no luck.

RE: [WIP] AniDB.net Anime Video Scraper - scudlee - 2012-06-05 15:45

@Rebelyouth The scraper only needs to download one xml file from anidb per series, and generally the time it takes XBMC to add even one episode is delay enough between requests. At least, in my experience - I haven't been banned in ages, and the last time was very much my fault.

So, this is my guess at what is happening:
You have several videos in your anime collection which can not be enumerated by XBMC (i.e any file whose name doesn't match a tvshowmatching regexp), and you also have cleanonupdate set to true in your advancedsettings. With that combination every time you scan, the scraper will pull the xml file for any series with those files in, but finding no enumerable episodes, XBMC will quickly move on to the next series. Too quickly, perhaps. Cleanonupdate will then make XBMC "forget" that it's already checked those non-library files, ensuring that the same thing will happen next time.

Obviously, that's just speculation on my part, there are probably other things that could cause the same effect (you may just have manually cleaned the library between updates rather than using cleanonupdate, for example.) A debug log of you scanning and getting banned would probably clarify things.

Hi,

It seems to be an outage, it's not working for me either. But as someone mentioned on the page before, this happens from time to time. Guess we just have to wait a day or two.


RE: [WIP] AniDB.net Anime Video Scraper - vask - 2012-06-06 01:41

~DerIdiot | the udp api will be down for some time

until its up im pretty sure we're SOL


RE: [WIP] AniDB.net Anime Video Scraper - bambi73 - 2012-06-07 09:30

@Kupo, Sodden, vask: AniDB.net scraper uses Http API, but I guess it apply for both. You can check if API is up by opening

http://api.anidb.net:9001/httpapi?request=anime&client=xbmcscrap&clientver=1&protover=1&aid=98

in your browser (aid is anime id). And looks like it's up now.

So... if it says "<error>Banned</error>" there I reckon it's not working? I'm not sure why I would have been banned...

Maybe you scraped too much at once. Wait 24h and try again.


RE: [WIP] AniDB.net Anime Video Scraper - xSoul - 2012-07-20 14:41

Since two days I'm getting this error: "Unable to connect to remote server. Would you like to continue scanning?"


Somehow it won't scrape anymore Confused
Does anyone knows the problem, because I can still view the XML page.
So I'm not banned or something for overflooding the servers.

Here's the debug

force anidb ID ? - zosky - 2012-07-20 19:52

hi yall.

Gintama (the original) > aniDB:3468
Gintama' (the squeal) > aniDB:8126

adding a <qoute> is a stupid way to name a sequal... but that's what we have here
what does one need to do so both are *not* picked up as the original

Two options:
a) Simply manually refresh the Gintama' folder and select the right series. (Navigate to the folder in Files view, press 'i' and select Refresh.)

2. Create a tvshow.nfo file containing "aid=8126" in the Gintama' folder (technically, you should put in the full anidb url as linked in your post, but that part is all you really need). You'll still need to manually update as above to fix it, but if you ever need to automatically scan in again, it should work straight away without needing to be manually fixed.


RE: [WIP] AniDB.net Anime Video Scraper - KoldPT - 2012-07-29 01:40

Hey, I've been having some issues getting anime to work on XBMC.

I've tried it on several different computers, with several different naming schemes and even using a complex as hell advancedsettings file, and yet it hasn't worked so far Tongue

Right now my setup is like this:

S:\shares\anime\Cowboy Bebop
and under that
Cowboy Bebop - 21 - Boogie-Woogie Feng-Shui
(...)

S:\shares\anime\Eureka Seven Ao
Eureka Seven Ao - 01 - Born Slippy (Deep Blue)
(...)

This is the same naming convention i use for my TV Shows, using FileBot. (Retro Game Master - 2x02 - Challenger; Black Mirror - 1x01 - The National Anthem...).

I've tried several others, and yet XBMC refuses to let me watch anime with the fancy features! It picks up banners and whatnot, but then just explodes. Last time, it even started recognizing episodes wrong... Help?

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/14752045/xbmc.log - my most recent log file. Opened XBMC up, it refreshed library, nothing. De-set content, set it back up and had it refresh files, still nothing.

edit: Just switched to using some regexps posted in the earlier thread and the anidb renamer... That'll have to do.


RE: [WIP] AniDB.net Anime Video Scraper - aelfwyne - 2012-08-26 02:44

Still having "issues" with this. A lot of shows are not recognized even though they are reasonably named, with a directory that ONLY contains the title of the show and filenames that have been carefully formatted.

For example, the anime "Aika"...

Anidb URL: http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=anime&aid=280
Not recognized at all with a folder named "Aika" or "Agent Aika", so I created a tvshow.nfo file with the anidb URL in it as instructed above.

Filenames are as follows:
Aika - 1 - Beautiful Agent - [1997-1999][anime-takeover][394A72BA].ogm
Aika - 2 - Naked Mission - [1997-1999][anime-takeover][F63F2BB9].ogm
..etc etc

This is a standard format applied via Anidb'O'Matic that works for about 85% of my shows, but about 15% it fails.

With tvshow.nfo, it gets the series information -- but not episode details.
Obviously the name is there, there's only ONE show by that name, so why in blue blazes is the scraper not picking up episode details? What's it take to get this thing to work?

Looks like it (as I thought) actually finds the URL I passed it... but it REFUSES to recognize any of the episodes! Is it bouncing back to thetvdb instead of anidb for episode details? It should NOT be doing that, but it looks like what it's doing.

Hi
im using xbmc-12.0-Frodo_alpha4, everything works fine until i try to scrape some anime from my disk. For example: let's take "Accel World", anidb ID is 8691 ... and I get message saying that im banned.
After doing some digging i got to information if i can get XML from AniDB api via my browser then i should get info.
So i can see that XML - but XBMC can't.
Any workarounds ?

File tree can be found here.
Log is here.

Regards

Hi,
New user here and have been reading all day now but still feel a little lost.

I have an extensive anime collection and have created my own filing/naming scheme that is incompatible with xbmc. I'm searching for the best strategy to attack renaming everything with a high probability of success. I don't mind hand editing some stuff to get it accurate, but I would like to start on the right track, so I'm looking for some success stories or a pointer to an updated guide that walks you through and what to expect. Maybe just a good naming scheme that catches most series, movies, and OVAs.

Is Filebot a good option for renaming and is there a successful script for it?

Lastly I did read that there will be no support for OPs & EDs (specials?) which is fine, but I was curious how you deal with them as far as naming and filing as to not disrupt matching. (sub-folder?)

Any help, strategies, or anecdotes would be much appreciated.
