Put this in the "Wish List" category... add to this to have Mezzmo get backdrops for movies. It doesn't seem to work quite right unless you edit each one by hand.
I'd like to see an Advanced Metadata Manager for Mezzmo. The "one-at-a-time" editor in the server GUI is spectacular, I wouldn't change a thing about it, or the more or less user-proof metadata scraping and file indexing options.
I'd like to see more advanced options, possibly in a separate application bundled with or separately downloadable.
I create .nfo files and pull down cover art through ThumbGen. I make a lot of edits to the metadata to support displaying moviesheets/linksheets on devices. While something like this is important to me for probably niche reasons, I'm sure other users would like one too!
What I'd like to do is:
1) Set sources for text metadata preferentially. In other words say "Only use metadata from <insert your metadata file here>". In my case .nfo files. It could be MyMovies, etc...
2) Only get cover art if cover art does not already exists.
3) Only get backdrops if they do not exist...
etc... etc... etc...
I'd also like to tell the content indexer "only get <metadata>" whether it is text, cover art, backdrops... and dictate the source.
A CLI would be great too, whereby I could kick off custom tasks on a scheduled basis. Like "C:\Folder\amm.exe -getmetadata backdrops -source Internet -updatemissing"
That sort of thing, if you get my meaning. What I'd like to avoid is having data pulled in using one method being overwritten by trying to pull in other metadata from another method. I know I can run one pass using only .nfo files, and another using Internet with the "Update only missing" option checked, but I'd like to do it all in one pass from sources I select on a per type basis - text from one, covers from another, backdrops from another, and so on.
