20 Nov 2019 - TVDB Scraper v3.2.0 is now available which reinstates scraping. TVDB are still in the process of fixing a number of bugs so there may still be further breakages. See this post. 2901570 (post)

Release Filename Scraper
This scraper is marked as broken.

See the next post for an alternative.

A long time ago I wrote a very simplified movie scraper that added movies to the library using only the filename. Nothing is scraped and all you will see is the filename in your library- no artwork, no metadata.

I haven't really named this scraper, nor is it in the repo, so lets just refer to it as the Filename Scraper for now and you can download it from the following link and install it via zip.


The scraper will connect to an external website, in this case Google search, first to get the search results, and then again to get the actual movie details. The scraper pings Google with the filename (cleaned up by Kodi) as a search term, returns it back directly as the only search result, then uses the same page (cached) to return the title as the only detail. (The actual Google search results are completely ignored.)
Stupid Movie Database Scraper

An alternate filename only scraper that can add movies to the library based on the filename only. An internet connection is still required.

1. Last update was 2016, but is still operational at the time of this post.
2. It may not work on a Raspberry Pi, but it can be easily fixed following this post... 2863494 (post)
