However I have about 600 movies in my library most of which are associated with yahoo trailers that cannot play without endless buffering.
I would like to do a partial scrape just for the trailers. I am using a mysql database and all of my movies have the nfo's generated along with the local artwork. If I do a full library rescrape with the new imdb scraper, ignoring the local information, trailers will update but I will also lose all the artwork that I had previously changed.
Can ember go through the nfo's and update just the trailer links so that I can do a library refresh from the nfo's? or better yet can it update the library itself with the new trailers from tmdb?
In XBMC you can export all scraped informations (use the "export to separate files" mode), covers and fanarts to your local movie folders. Then you can import everything in and change/scrape only the trailers. Then rescan/rebuild the database in XBMC. But this works only if each movie in its own folder.
But I think you misunderstood my question. I have done the export/import cycle before. The problem with that is when exporting, xbmc automatically creates the nfo file with the streaming trailer link. And when you import those back into the library, the trailer link comes from the nfo file, it doesn't get rescraped.
My question was whether ember could modify the nfo's to change only the trailer links.
Or an easier way would be if ember could directly update the database like xbne but in an automated fashion. I am not sure if ember is able to do that or not.
