What can be scrobbled?

This plugin will scrobble local media and most remote streaming content. Local content should be played in XBMC library mode and you should use TVDb (for tv shows) and TMDb (for movies) as your scrapers. TV shows are identified using their TVDb ID. Movies are identified using the IMDb ID. This helps trakt match up the correct show or movie regardless of the title and improves accuracy a lot.

Remote streaming content will scrobble assuming the metadata is correctly set in XBMC. The various streaming plugins need to correctly identify TV episodes and movies with as much metadata as they can for trakt to know what you're watching.

Tested and scrobbling correctly
  • XBMC library mode
  • PleXBMC
  • Amazon (bluecop repo)
  • CBS (bluecop repo)
  • South Park
  • In XBMC, go to Settings » Add-ons » Search and search for trakt (If it doesn't show up, try refreshing the xbmc.org repository so it gets the latest listings)
  • Select the trakt plugin and choose install
  • After installation, open trakt again and select configure
  • Enter your username, password, and change any other settings as needed
  • Select OK to save your settings
  • Watch something and see it show up on trakt.tv!
