MediaElch - MediaManager for Mac/Linux/Win (with music library scraping)
-@Kallita You're not a pain, thanks for reporting!
-Do you use the "Custom Movie Scraper"? If so, which title scraper did you select?

I use The Movie DB for movie scraping as the default. As far as I can remember I have not set up a custom movie scraper so all the settings should be default in that regard.

-Do you have an example movie title that I can use to test?

Today's test movies were:
Mission impossible 3
Mission impossible rogue nation
Mission impossible fallout (getting ready for the next release)
WHAM!
Doctor Who Am I

none scraped an "Original Name"  IE nothing appears in the "Original Name" line
Thanks for your time

So once that is fixed, does that mean it will scrape the album/artist information as well? eg. album info, bio, artist name etc. The reason I ask is because none of that is even being scraped in the snapshot version as I mentioned.

@h3xc0r34l13n No, there isn't. Certain media types are overwritten. What do you have in mind? Should there be logo1.png, logo2.png etc? I'm open for proposals. Smile

@Kallita Thanks. What language do you use? Some languages (e.g. German, de-DE) don't have a title that differs from the original title. At least not for your examples. If the original title does not differ from the "normal" title, it is not stored.
There is the option "Don't store the original title if it is the same as the normal title" in settings -> movies. Is that checkbox checked?

Check on TheMovieDb.org if a movie has an original title. For example "Avatar - Aufbruch nach Pandora" (German) has.

@shedrock Yes. At least I hope so. :-)
Discogs is used for discography as well as album details. The universal music scraper uses Discogs, MusicBrainz and AllMusic. Discogs is broken at the moment (tests fail). I will have to check AllMusic as well.
If that is fixed, I will release a new version.

The Qt6 version has fixed a lot of those UI issues, see https://github.com/Komet/MediaElch/issue...1312743005 for an example comparison.
Our linux versions do not come with Qt6 support out of the box. I plan to update our release script for the Ubuntu PPA for Ubuntu 23.04 and later: I want to use Qt6 there.
If you want Qt6 support, you have to build MediaElch yourself, see https://mediaelch.github.io/mediaelch-do...index.html for guides.

That was it! I was running an old version of Qt due to mostly using gnome. The Fedora guide fixed it and its running better than ever. thanks! Its even integrated into the application launcher now. 

I'll be sure to donate this week. Thanks for all the hard work!

English

-If the original title does not differ from the "normal" title, it is not stored.

With toggle off it used to be stored

-There is the option "Don't store the original title if it is the same as the normal title" in settings -> movies. Is that checkbox checked?

Toggle box is not checked as I want original title and normal title to be entered and saved as I will sometimes manually add something to the name to differentiate it from another version I might have.
for example Mission:Impossible may be the original and normal name but I may add "UHD" or "Complete" to the 'normal' name to show it as a different version (this is what is shown in kodi as the name of the movie) or even as an AKA name but still want the original name to be there as the original name.
Previous behaviour with box toggled would be the original name was not shown unless different from the normal name. This is happening with it toggled or not now.
Previous behaviour with box not toggled would put original name and normal name on the appropriate lines even if they matched. This no longer happens.

-Check on TheMovieDb.org if a movie has an original title. For example "Avatar - Aufbruch nach Pandora" (German) has.

comes up as avatar in the normal name.

Hope this makes sense to you.
If it is not happening that way anymore I will just manually copy the names over.

Seems I fixed in the latest available source files, but that is not released, yet. You can try one of our snapshot versions, see https://mediaelch-downloads.ameyering.de/snapshots/

I tested it now with "Mission: Impossible III" + TheMovieDb scraper:

  1. box not toggled (i.e. always store original title if it exists): "name + original name" are both set to "Mission: Impossible III"
  2. box toggled (i.e. only store original title if different): "name" is set to "Mission: Impossible III"; "original name" is not set

As far as I understood, that is what you want, correct?

Sorry, I totally forgot that I fixed it and only tested it with the latest unreleased version.

Andre

Cool, thanks! Donations are welcome, but we don't rely on them. They go to the original author of MediaElch, which I also appreciate, but not to me. Smile
I don't want any donations/money, as I develop MediaElch out of fun / personal interest only.

What's new?
I’ve fixed a few bugs, including broken scrapers, UI glitches, but there is also a new small feature: The movie search dialog now has a preview!

Please refer to the blog post for more details. :-)

Where can I download MediaElch?
Stable releases can be downloaded from https://mediaelch.github.io/mediaelch-doc/download.html

This is my own server. So please be patient if the server is not reachable. :-)

For Linux distributions we provide repositories for Ubuntu (.deb) and openSUSE (.rpm).
For Windows we also provide a Chocolatey package.
The repositories will take a few days to get the latest version.

Where can I get help?
For general question use Kodi forums, e.g.

@bugwelle - I've never used MediaElch for Movies before, but I wanted to try it out today, but I have a few questions.

1 - Do I always have to change the name of the movie to the exact name in order for it to find it? For example, if I use The.Black.Demon.2023.1080p.WEB-DL.DDP5.1.H.264, then it does not work.

2 - Is there a way to save the extrafanart to the root folder instead of a sub directory?

3 - When I try to download the trailer, the program freezes up.

Regards,

Shedrock

Do you mean when you search for a movie e.g. on TheMovieDb? MediaElch only uses basic title extraction from the filename. e.g. we replace dots by whitespace. Some scrapers such as IMDb are more restrictive on what search query results in the wanted search result. Your title is transformed to "The Black Demon 2023 1080p WEB-DL DDP5 1 H 264". But I think we should auto-remove the H.264 parts, etc.
I've opened https://github.com/Komet/MediaElch/issues/1627 to track this.

Do you have your movies in separate directories or in a single one (see setting "Sep. Folders" for your media directory).
Ok, well, I think regardless of your answer: No, not yet.

hmmm... There seems to be a bug as well. Closing the window before the entries are loaded, MediaElch may crash.
It may take a while before anything appears. MediaElch shouldn't freeze (as in: Does not respond; Windows shows "App is not responding", etc.), but it will take a few seconds up to a minute for anything to be shown.

Thanks for the last version! I think there are many users that would like to see this feature in MediaElch. At the end of the day, it has been the standard for Kodi since many years and several Kodi versions ago. I like MediaElch and whenever a new version is launched I hope that option gets included, but to no avail. I (and many more users for sure) would be inmensely grateful if this feature would get added someday. Thanks!

Yes, definitely a bug because it freezes up every time.

@bugwelle - I also forgot to mention to you. I have a band called Bad Habit (Swedish band), but when I click on it to scrape, absolutely nothing happens. The scrape button just stays greyed out, even after 30 minutes. The program does not lock up, but it wont let me scrape any band with that name.

Cheers,

Shedrock
