Read the metadata tags from video container files and import into database / library?

See what I posted on trac. As far as our dll loader is concerned, STL strings within the dll are what we can't handle - nothing to do with the interface per-se.

Cheers,
Jonathan

I think you'll find that our dll loader is going to barf on any dll that includes stl strings and so on.
MediaInfo's author, Jerome Martinez (a.k.a. Zenitram), said that he would be willing to work with XBMC developers in order get MediaInfo library working in XBMC, (his e-mail address is "zen at mediaarea dot net").

Would that help? ...or what about using it as a static library? Huh

All of my .mp4 files are atomized via MetaX via AtomicParsley. How can I view the relevant info such as director and cast as well as the cover image saved in atoms like that of the IMDB Video Library?

[Edit]
Or....What do I use to edit or create my own the MyVideos*.db ?

How can I help push a new feature (see Ticket #5079, http://trac.xbmc.org/ticket/5079) to add mp4 meta data to the video library (ref. my previous post: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=39205) as it is evident the meta data is being read (probably via atomicparsely) so all that needs to be done is add to library via sqlite3.

I see this being much more efficient than the IMDB lookup, and a more reliable population of the library on multiple systems.

Show me where to get started!!!

Maybe the developers section of the forums can help

I suggest you begin by reading the feature suggestion thread for this:
http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=12721

Then begin to familiarize yourself with the XBMC source code, maybe start by looking how tag reading is implemented for music files.

PS! Please keep in mind that XBMC is a cross-platform application Wink

Quote:Try to make all code, feature, and functions to be platform agnostic - XBMC is a multi-platform software, thus any single platform specific features should be discussed with other team members before implemented. Major features should be developed in a separate branch or committed in small increments so that other members have the opportunity to review the code and comment on it during development.
Best would be to use a cross-platform library so that the same function/feature can be implemented the same on all platforms that XBMC runs on, or at the very least on XBMC for Linux, Mac, and Windows.

Per the trac comment, has Spiff moved forward on this at all?

Or is FFMPEG going to be the saviour?

Reading dts and ac3 files into the music library would be very nice, but Mediainfo doesn't stop there.

Using Mediainfo would allow for better playlist setup...for example, I'd like to be able to filter by artist and then find the surround sound version. Or for a party select a playlist composed of all surround sound files of a certain genre...

Would be absolutely invaluable to 100% of the apple user base though, not that I wanna distract davilla's attention away from Crystal HD...

Question 
Hello everyone,

I have a collection of several thousand VIDEO file in mp4 format with the tags year, title, artist, genre, COVER (preview/thumbnail), etc.. embedded in the file.

In the same way that one can read metadata from MP3 files, I would like to xbmc also read metadata from mp4 VIDEO files. Would this be possible? hopefully it is! my help me a lot! That could make smart lists using the fields that already have filled in a similar way as you would with itunes.

Thanks and best regards

PD sorry for my poor English Tongue

Is this being worked on still? If so, when could we expect this? Can't MKV offer the same kind of tagging as mp4 btw?

I for one would like to express my interest in this proposal. I don't use iTunes, but my media library contains movies, episodes and shows. My folders contai
recordings comskips and xmls. It would be very nice to have a clean, human-friendly library.

This proposal would fit right in with the database abstraction as it would be a very convient way to get all that info into the database. It would also establish an infrastructure for non-movie non-episode recordings to be catalouged, transported, referenced, and actually used.
Use mythicalLibrarian to make a library out of your MythTV files. Leave the recording to MythTV and use XBMC as your library.
