Scraper entries for directories ?
#1
Can't quite get the answer from the wiki doc:

My recorded TV media is currently kept in a directory hierarchy:

/<series-name>/<episode-number>_<episode-title>/<station>_<year>/<recording-date>.avi

This is because of recordings coming from VDR, and has in general served me well. Alas, i have not been able to figure out how to get scraping done:

I would like to see episode scaper information while being in directory /<series-name>, but it seems more and more that thats not possible, because XBMC does not even seem to look at .nfo files for directories. Eg: i've renamed /<episode-number>_<episode-title>/ to /<episode-number>_<episode-title>.avi/ and created /<episode-number>_<episode-title>.nfo, but no luck.

Any way how i could make this work for XBMC without changing my directory structure ?

If the only way would be to write my own scraper, any recommendation of a scraper i could start out with ?

You likely need to modify the regex used to see if a file is an episode or not. Regex is a dark and scary world to me, so I won't be of much help there, but here's a place to start: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=51614

But as you say "file", i think the regex isn't even applied to directories when searching for episodes.

Do you need to retain the VDR names? Or alternatively can you symlink them to an XBMC-like name? mythtv for example has a mythlink script that can symlink their internal naming scheme to a filename that is human readable.

I think it can be adapted to directories, but I don't know for certain.
