Library keep changing Wall-E to Walled In
#1
Hi

The movie Wall-E keep comming up as Walled In.
I change the name, still same happens.
Delete from library and rescan, still same happens.

Checked TMDb and both movies are there.

Anyone know how to fix this?


Thx in advance.

What is the file and folder name it is stored in? Plus is there an nfo in the folder. If so open it and click the imdb link and see where it leads. Sometimes if the wrong link ends up the nfo it will use this for scraping as long as the nfo is in a readable format.

I just have all my movies in a Movie folder.
Maybe i should make one folder for each movie? Smile

Or can i find the nfo file somewhere?

Thx

rename it to "Wall·E (2008)"

without quotations of course. would recommend one movie per folder though. just makes life easier.

Then library finds "Wallace & Gromith in the curse of the were-rabbit", haha


I think i have to sit down and make one folder for each movie......

A quick fix would be to create a one-line nfo file. Give it the exact same name as your movie file (e.g. if movie is called "Wall-E.mkv" then name the nfo "Wall-E.nfo"). Inside the file just put the URL for the correct movie. That'll override the parser and force it to scrape the info from the item you specify.

Rescan, manually enter the name.

Every movie has its own folder now and i have updated the library.
Wall.E is coming up as wallacw and gromith.

I canr find any nfo file in in any movie folders.

Am i doing something wrong?

An NFO file is a simple text file with the suffix .nfo.

Make it exactly the same name as the movie filename without the suffix (e.g. drop .MKV). Put the following line in on it's own.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0910970/

(So the file would be "Wall-E (2008).nfo" - or whatever. Then rescan.

Wall E - 2008 - AC3 - 720p.mkv - thats how it looks with mine.
but i'm using IMDB - because the search results with other scrappers were not good enough for my movies (a lot are named with the german title), and IMDB will find both names, and then uses either the original or the german (depending on the settings in the Plugin).
I think you must use capital letters for WALL E, then it should also work with TMDB.
Suggestion:
when i create new Files, i always go to IMDB first, and do a copy /paste of the correct spelling (including the year in ( ) ). Since i do so, all my movies are captured correctly from scratch. Wink

Changed scrapper from TMDb to IMDB and then it found Wall-E.

I have one folder called movies, and when i scan this my music videos from another folder "musicvideos" shows up in the movie library?

Why does it scan another folder when i tell it to scan only movies?
Deleted mymoviesdb and started over, and music videos stil pop up....

Anyone?
