Can I ask how you managed to get the movie files to show in library view? Last time I tried scraping anime movies using anidb (treating them as TV shows), it scrapes the fanart, plot etc fine, but it's like a 1-season TV show with no episodes. I think this is because it can't find the "episode" in thetvdb?

For now, I'm using themoviedb scraper for anime movies instead, and anidb for series.

You need to name the movie file as though it were season 1 episode 1 of the "TV show" to get it to show up.

Correct so for example:

"Evangelion Shin Gekijouban Jo" would be called:
Evangelion Shin Gekijouban Jo s01e01
or
Evangelion 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone s01e01
or
Evangelion 1.11 You Are (Not) Alone s01e01

I think you get the idea now. Wink

Yup, I get the idea, thanks Smile
I'll try this out later. One thing I like about using the anidb scraper instead of themoviedb is that release year and studio are based on the Japanese release and not the English release. So all my studio icons are displayed beautifully Big Grin


Question about correctly file naming - darknerv - 2012-01-13 19:04

Hello, I'm having issues recognizing almost all anime episodes I have. I renamed all my anime using filebot directly using the anidb plugin. After renaming almost all series the final result is something like:

/Videos/Anime/Ao No Exorcist/Blue Exorcist - 01 - The Devil Resides in Human Souls.mp4

In other words:

/Videos/Anime/SomethingIUsedToCatalog/AnimeName - EpisodeNumber - EpisodeName

This name structure was obtained directly using Anidb via FileBot but anyway I cant see almost any episode in library mode. Is there something I'm missing? Should I use a diferent naming convention?

Just as a note, I'm using xbmc in linux installed directly from xbmc debianized repositories.

Cheers!

Thanks, Garandor, I will rename again my files and try again.

No need to do that, your naming scheme is all right, all you need to do is tell XMBC how it should "read" those filenames, which is what you set in a so called "advancedsettings.xml" file as stated
http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=TV_Shows_%28Video_Library%29#Custom_Directory_Structure_.26_File​_Names
here.

A regexp that would work in your case is for example
<regexp>[\._ \-]()([0-9]+)(-[0-9]+)?</regexp>

Thats so much better, I will modify this XML and give it a try. This kind of things are a little off of the scope of usual end user but it would be good having a way to edit this settings directly from xbmc. Thanks in advance garador.

I would imagine that it would create issues with specials though... as his current naming system has no place to declare if a file was a special.

Hi, is there a way to get special episode info with anidb scraper ?

gates Wrote:Hi, is there a way to get special episode info with anidb scraper ?

I usually use a custom regex for normal episodes, and rename my specials to the S00Exx format (referring to TVDB for the episode number).
eg. <Anime name>.S00E01.<Eptitle>.

It's a bit of manual work to figure out the episode number, but the default regex in XBMC will catch it as a special and scrape correctly.


- gates - 2012-01-16 20:05

indeed, thx Smile

I thought anidb scrapper only get info from anidb.net, but I forgot it get fanart from thetvdb ... so why not the special ep ^^


- hentai23 - 2012-01-17 19:25

has anybody else here noticed that when you try to change the thumb of a scraped anime that it goes blank ? -.-'

changing fanart works thou hmmmm....


- shinner - 2012-01-18 05:48

Hello, I see this thread has been moved. Shouldn't it be in "TV scapers addons" and not Movie scrapers? The Anidb scraper only scrapes TV shows.
