    No, the thumbnails are saved on disk alongside the video file and are referenced in the nfo file.

    Same here I can't retrieve Meta Data for movies but for TV Shows it works.

    Perhaps I don't understand Tiny metadata manager well enough but I don't see a way to do this in batches saving one NFO for multiple files. If one has 10 or so films this isn't a problem but I've been saving things to HDD for years. I'm not beating on you Peter. I'm trying to see if there's a more elegant solution than making individual NFOs for multiple files. And as I said I'm not yet familiar with all the ins and outs of Tiny metadata manager. Thanks

    Peter,

    I've been doing some testing with the NFO format of TMM and Mezzmo's ability to read all the tags properly. Most are working but a few aren't. I've attached a sample TMM NFO file. The following fields aren't matching to Mezzmo:

    Note, list was edited from original post

    ratings value -> Rating
    tmdbid -> themoviedb.org
    producer tmdbid -> Producer
    trailer -> trailer (will need to be formatted into Mezzmo format)

    Actors are showing up in both actors and album artists vs. just actors only.

    For the actor artwork the Mezzmo Artwork Checker is having no problems grabbing the artwork files for the UserPoster folder. The Mezzmo Trailer Checker works fine if the You Tube trailer(s) are formatted properly in Mezzmo.

    Would it be possible to tweak the NFO import code to accept the TMM tags listed above ? If so, this is a workable solution.


    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Is there any chance of getting this fixed, maybe with a different provider?

    Unfortunately for me, .nfo would not be a viable solution as my folder structure would
    Be a mess. (I've tried this before).

    I understand if this is not possible.

    Ron,

    What I do is put the new movies for TMM to grab the metadata into a separate folder with nothing else. I then have TMM create the artwork files and the NFO file. Then I copy the movie, artwork and NFO into the folder structure where they belog. Next Mezzmo discovers the new movie. Once done, I delete the NFO and artwork files within the movie folder structure because they are no longer needed. I keep a backup copy of the artwork and NFO file elsewhere, just in case I need them in the future. I use the Mezzmo Artwork Checker to grab the actor images and drop them into the UserPoster folder. Lastly, I use the Mezzmo Trailer Checker to grab local trailers and update the Mezzmo database. I concur that this is a bit more work than before but fortunately I don't add that many movies.

    I am toying with the idea of writing a new metadata scraper that combines creating the NFO files to exactly match what Mezzmo needs, download the movie and actor artwork. A stretch goal would be to update the Mezzmo database directly and bypass the NFO step. That could be a possible phase 2. Together the Mezzmo artwork Checker and Kodi TMDB Python scraper already have much of the code, along with a TMDB API key. If there is a enough interest, I'll consider it.

    It would be written in Python as I don't have time to learn something like GO to make it an executable and tackle this at the same time. It would be command line driven and not GUI driven. I'd start with single movie support and then would consider tying into the Mezzmo database to do something like all newly discovered movies and such.

    feedback is welcome,

    Jeff

    Jeff,

    Thanks for the tips.

    It's good to know that the .nfo files don't need to stay in the folder with the movies,
    I can live with this solution for now.

    I'm hopeful that this can be fixed in Mezzmo, Peter has been excellent when it comes to support.

    I have decided to a go ahead and add NFO creation functionality into the Mezzmo Artwork Checker tool. There may be use cases for the Kodi community to have a stand-alone NFO creation tool. I've gotten a good chunk of the functionality already working. The first test version will ask you for the movie name and year (optional) and then pulls a matching movie list from TMDB and asks you which movie you want to create the NFO file for (i.e. it's a simple 1,2 3 etc.. menu response). Afterwards it pulls the movie details, creates the NFO file and then fetches the poster/backdrop images.

    The initial version will be English / US based movies, which can later be expanded. I am finishing up some of the movie details data parsing and then writing the NFO file. I hope to have something available later this week for anyone interested in helping test. The next version will scan a folder with video files and fetch the matching details.

    If anyone is interesting in testing, please let me know.


    Thanks,

    Jeff
