[LINUX] Any XBMC database editing tools for Linux available?
#1
I started ordering my components for my Linux based HTPC build having been playing with the latest XBMC release on my Linux workstation.

One thing I have noticed is that the scraper for videos are not 100% accurate & I don't expect them to be.

In the Linux environment what tools are available to edit XBMC's database directly?? In Mediaportal for example in the setup app you can directly edit entries for Videos/Movies changing anything from the description to the graphic used.

In the windows environment there seem to be a few easy to use tools mentioned in the forums. What exists for the Linux environment?

Any sql editor that does sqlite3 will work fine.

Can you point me to a few that run under Linux naturally?

Google broken? I've only used the "sqlite3" cli tool. Probably not what you want.

You also just edit the theTVDB.com entry for the show. It is wiki style and most shows are open for editing. What shows specifically are you having issues with?

Code:
sudo aptitude install sqlite3

It will install the binary "sqlite3". The XBMC dbs are located in ~/.xbmc/userdata/Database

Code:
MyMusic7.db  MyPrograms6.db  MyVideos34.db  ViewModes.db

to connect run: sqlite3 MyVideos34.db etc.. once connected, typing .help will sort you out..

Google's not broken :-)

I'm at work. Can't spend too much time online. Doing a few 16h stretches so I can only get in bits & pieces of online time.

Not shows. The scraper for movies pulled in some wrong movie info & covers.

sqlight3 is great for scripting; i use it in a BASH script to scrape URLs from ddtrailer.com & drop them back into my library. for small edits &/or general browsing, i use sqlitebrowser. both from the ubuntu repos

To whom it may concern...

For the simple viewing & editing, Firefox also has an add-on called SQLite Manager. It can be installed via the usual add-on menu option.
