Missing Movie Scanner

Scans your source folders for movie files that are missing from your library.

Have you ever added a bunch of movies to your collection and then days or weeks later thought "I remember adding that movie so where the $%^& is it". If the Movie Info Scanner (TMDB, IMDB) can not find your movie on-line it will be skipped, if it is skipped it will not be added to your move library and it will not show up in your movie list.

This add-on should help track down movie files that are not added to your library, you can then rename the directory or file and run the "Scan for new content" on your source again.

Problems and Bugs:
YOU NEED A LOG FILE
To submit problems and bugs create an kodi log file.

- Turn on "Debug Logging" in the Missing Movie Scanner Addon Settings
- Reproduce the problem and then shutdown kodi
- Upload the log to http://pastebin.com/
- Post the link to your pastbin log to this thread
- Along with the log provide a description of the problem

Logging Tips:
On windows the kodi log is under your user profile folder, on my windows 8 machine it is here:
C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\kodi\kodi.log

This log is overwritten every time you run kodi so make sure you turn on logging, reproduce the problem, shut down kodi and then grab the log file without rerunning kodi as it will overwrite your log file then.

Thanks for doing this, a great addition for the media library many of us have!
Hey friend. I try to run the add on and get this https://pastebin.com/3VaxVxa7
Can you help me?
Hey

Thanks for this addon. Any chance you could have this addon export the lists of missing items to a txt file?? That would be handy to sort through the missing files.

Cheers

@lorkadiscovery Is this still maintained? I referred another member to your fork but the download link is dead.

Unfortunately not. Due to an oversight on me converting some things to py3 the git ended up getting deleted.

If there is a demand for it I will look at porting it to py3 and maintaining for Matrix.

Depends on the demand tho.
If it is of any help, there are users still trying to use the original version (I see it in their logs) as well as the occasional posts on the forum for assistance with the broken version. There is a demand there (though I don't know how big).

I know I would like it back if at all possible.
I am also looking for a addon like this!
