Post: #1
Just Released -- Latest 4.1.7 Release Candidate 7, get it here

Introduction

XWMM is a cross platform tool to manage the XBMC Media Database. It is completely web based, so you don't need to install anything on your workstation to manage your media.

This tool is intended to facilitate the use of the XBMC media management features (media infos, media categorization, scraping, etc ...)



We are looking for bug reports, suggestions, feature requests and developers. Wink

Thanks in advance for your input.

Slash2009

Project note: This is still slash's project and Ive been helping around with github maintenance for new PR bugfixes etc.. for XBMC v12.3 and newer - please find old thread here

I am having a bit of trouble installing this currently.
I have downloaded the XWMM-4.0.1-master.zip and go to install from zip but when I choose it, it says dependencies not met. I am most likely making some stupid mistake but I'm not sure what haha.

EDIT- I am an idiot I downloaded the Gotham version not Fodo

Ok, I downloaded the zip to my home directory, and selected install.

I now have a XWMM-4.0.1-master directory in my ~/.xbmc/addons folder.

Now what?

Where is the webinterface.XWMM from the instructions?

- Allow control XBMC via HTTP
- Web interface : -> change this to XWMM
- open your browser to http://<your_XBMC_IP>:<port>/XWMM/index.html

Yes. I get a simple webpage with 'file not found'. I haven't copied anything anywhere, just installed the *.zip.

I'm running stock Gotham XBMCBuntu.

Well, idk what that means, but it looks like you done something odd., it works here quite well.

Use a modern browser, Not Internet Explorer.

So when you go into Web_interface

http://<your_XBMC_IP>:<port>/addons/ is XWMM listed there? Screenshot pls.

A debug log off of xbmc would also be helpful and screenshots of any errors too.

All fails download the https://github.com/slash2009/XWMM/archive/v4.0.1.zip and install according to HOW-TO:Install_an_Add-on_from_a_zip_file and reconfigure xbmc properly.

>is XWMM listed there?

Yes.

Clicking on it takes me to the interface at : "http://xx.xx.xx.xx:8080/addons/webinterface.XWMM/movies/index.html" and it appears to be working.

Thanks!

Edit : Some art is not there, and I would *love* a quick way to set the watch flag. I'm sure these are known issues?

Watched flag works properly for both Movies and shows.

Art setting/choosing/changing is not working yet (listed known issue see list on main post) as no one has worked on or submitted such fixes/additions yet.

If someone fixes, adds or restores any functions not known working, I'll be happy to merge and release such work. Wink

Does this tool allow to not just edit the path of a movie one by one but also doing a search and replace amongst all movies in the database, e.g. changing all smb://server/d/movies to smb://server/e/hd-movies?

@pigeli

idk about path changes if they work of not as you expect. Il need to look at that and see how its intended if at all. But Im juts a user like you not a dev. Autofix path is a broken feature. And there is no one working on these that I know of.

@Bazzu85

Like I said I dont think tags are supported, XWMM needs to have people who can understand .js and jsonrpc to help fix current bugs and or add new features.

Please visit https://github.com/slash2009/XWMM for more information and look at source code and see if you can help us. XWMM was fixed by users and is chugging away slowly because of such contributions, the more the merrier. Wink

Not likely, I hope so too for much of many things, XWMM needs people to work on these things and technically there are no developers I know working on any of these things. Slash is a bit MIA and the others come and go as real life allows.

When I say XWMM needs developers Im not exaggerating.
