Media Companion 3 beta's - Now with Music Video support
I don't know if it's me but MC don't detect all of the artwork for sets (only the fanart) and i don't see where we can modify/choose the artworks in the poster/fanart tab :

Custom Movie Sets won't be with a TMDB ID, and if you use the batch wizard, it will re-write your Movie Set names.

I knew that some issues might crop up. Seems I need to create a Tool in MC that can marry up the custom set name to the TMDB ID number.
Also, I found some logic issue with finding the movie set id in the Movie Sets and Tags Tab, so will need to fix that also.

When you first go to the Fanart Tab, you'll see the Green button to take you to Movie Set Artwork.
See Fanart Tab image below

Then once selected, this button changes to Blue to take you back to normal Movie Artwork.
See Poster Tab image below

But these buttons only appear with a Valid TMDB Id number, else we can't know what movie set artwork to get.

Maybe I'll set it up to get the TMDB ID, but if there is a Movie Set name already, to leave this in place, not overwriting it.

I'll look at the Tool I included in MC and let you know.

Great work on the latest release, Rob! One thing I noticed is a problem with sets that have a colon in the title. Won't download for me.

Another little cosmetic issue. If the Extra Artwork box is pretty full, the outline label is cut off a bit.

Have you thought anymore on the idea of not moving movies into a set folder if there is only one movie. ex. If I only own one movie from a set of three, leave as single movie, not a set until I get another movie from the set. Hope I explained it ok. Thanks

Forgot something. Any chance of changing the movie set poster file name to poster? I believe that's the default for Movie Set Artwork Automater, folder for thumbnails.

It would be great if we can link tmdb id to a custom set name without overwrite it. You could add an option in the "movie preference/artwork" tab to define if we must use tmdb id or local files. With the parameter of artwork automator, if the movie "Beta" of the set "Alpha" is in a directory Alpha ("Alpha/Beta/Beta.avi") so "Alpha/logo.png", "Alpha/poster.jpg" and "Alpha/fanart.jpg" are the artworks of the set Alpha.

Or a tab "Change movie set" for the custom set. We could, as for the "change movie" tab, navigate through tmdb or fanart.tv to choose which id to use but it must permit to keep custom set or to rename set.

Can you post as screenshot, or pm it to me? It could be to do with a user's resolution, dpi etc, or my stuff-up.

Haven't considered this yet, as the logic need to first know how many movies are in a specific set.
While getting the movie set artwork is one step, it was also needed to get the TMDB set ID. Now that we scrape this, I can add features like:
  • Missing Movies in a Set
  • i'll think of something else...
While the above idea is OK, I see issues if a user is scraping the first movie in a Set.
Say you have all three Back to the Future movies, and MC gets to the first one. It sees there is only one movie in this set, so don't make a Set Folder.
Then MC gets to the second movie. Now it sees there are two movies in the Set, and renames the second movie into a Set Folder.
Then the Third movie is scraped and moved into the Set Folder.

But...the first movie would not be moved automatically as it's been completed. This would have to be manually renamed into the Set Folder.
Sorry, but don't feel comfortable making MC take liberties of thinking it's OK to move files by itself. Specially if you get one movie in a set only, this is added to XBMC/Kodi, and months/years later you get a second movie for the Set. I can see users complaining about movies not working in XBMC/Kodi library after this.

It's better to let the user decide how/where to store these Set movies.
Quote:Forgot something. Any chance of changing the movie set poster file name to poster? I believe that's the default for Movie Set Artwork Automater, folder for thumbnails.
MovieSet poster name is as follows:
If MC is set to save the poster to the Movie Set Folder, then the filename is poster.jpg
If MC is set to save to a common MovieSet Art folder, then it's <moviesetname>-folder.jpg
Same for fanart.

I actually altered the Movie Tool Movie Set ID Check so that it does not overwrite the custom MovieSet name, and will still get the TMDB ID (if it exists). I haven't had the chance to test this yet.
Might PM you a test build later today...

Currently only from TheMovidDB site. Fanart.TV to be added later once the dust settles and this becomes stable.

Also, note that there is going to be a change from folder.jpg to poster.jpg, as I got this wrong from the 'Movie Set Artwork Automator' discussion. (maybe I should have read through all 29 pages...)

MC now supports download from Fanart.TV, from Fanart.TV Tab, not auto-scraping.

Edit: Oh, and if you run the Movie Set ID Check under 'Movies' menu, it will keep custom Movie Set Names, updating the TMDB Id.

TV scarper...

I need some help with the tv scraper.

Sometimes the scraper works great....renames the episode and downloads the artwork.

But some tv shows just dont want to work.

The Maxx for instance.

Only 13 episodes in one season but it wont find any episodes. It does show them in the missing episodes but no matter how I title the episode it wont find it.

So I tried manually updating but UNLIKE movie scraper where you find the movie and click ok the TV manual scraper has no go button so I have no idea how to select it.

Awesome program though...

There is only a manual show selector available, as well as a browser window to tvdb site.

Im out of town for few days, but can you pm me the name of the show, and attach a link to the tvshow.nfo so i can see what's going on.

Test this : remove all nfo for this show and rescrap tvshow.

Sometime i have this problem and this has resolved my issues.

Tried that first because usually that solves the problem.

Seems to always be on animation for some reason.

Issue with Batman The Animated Series and The Maxx.
