I have been using knoppmyth for sometime now and the most annoying thing I have to do when I set up a new box is add cover art to my video files one at a time. I have well over a 100 movies on my machine and it takes forever. I go through my videos in the video manager and one by one do an IMDB search. I would love to speed this up.

Now I have used other software(xbmc for example) that would run and search all of my video files and add the covers with just a couple of clicks. It might not be perfect, but I can go through and fix the videos it made mistakes on.

Does Knoppmyth have the ability to add batch cover art and I have just over looked it? I know I can do thumbnails of the videos, but I prefer the box art. Any help would be appreciated.

Nico

Perfect. The website you gave me seems to be down, but I found a cached version of it and it looks to be exactly what I need. I hope it is up later so I can download it and try.

thanks,
nico

Seems to work great. This is what I did. I am by no means a linux pro, so please excuse my code if it is poor or not ideal. It worked for me. Also the website with the file seems to be down a lot.

Code:
cd /myth
wget http://www.thepisanis.com/files/imdbupdater.tar.gz
tar zxvf imdbupdater.tar.gz
cd imdbupdater
chmod +x imdb-bulk-update.pl
./imdb-bulk-update.pl -A -Host 127.0.0.1 -User mythtv -Password mythtv


Now it searched all of my movies one by one. If it found mulitple listings it asked me to make the choice.

another thing to do is if you have a folder of seinfeld episodes it can put the same cover and metadata on all of the files in that folder
Code:
./imdb-bulk-update.pl -A -folder /myth/video/seinfeld -Imdbnum 0098904

Will this work with Linhes?

There are better options now. The official Myth version is called jamu which you will find details on the myth wiki.

Locally here, BigB has a script called mythvideo-scanner (see http://knoppmyth.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=19082) which is excellent for parsing most file names.

I use a combination of both. Jamu for my recorded programs and mythvideo-scanner for everything else.
