How to fetch media info and artwork only if not fetched

Post by Raphy » 21 Mar 2012, 16:32

Hello,

First of all thanks for your wonderful software that is just awesome.

I would like this script ( http://filebot.sourceforge.net/scripts/ ... mdb.groovy, and the tv shows counterpart) to be periodically run by a crontab on my media center.

I don't want to use renaming/moving possibilities because I want my torrent client to keep on seeding the files, while XBMC to be able to find the good infos.

So I wonder if there is a way for the groovy script to check if the infos and artowork of a media have already been fetched (check if there is a movie.nfo or tvshow.nfo for example), and skip those folder to move onto another?

Thank you very much
Raphael

Should be easy to add that to that script. In that eachMediaFolder loop just add some kinda break condition.

e.g.
if (dir.hasFile{it =~ /nfo$/}) return;

Also since 2.6 you can do -rename --action copy|keeplink|hardlink so you can auto-organize files into a new location while keeping the original for seeding.

it works awesomely well.

I added this piece of code to the main function:

Code: Select all

if (dir.hasFile{it =~ /nfo$/} || ( dir.hasFile{it =~ /banner.jpg$/} && dir.hasFile{it =~ /folder.jpg$/})) {
     println "Already scanned, skipping..."
     return;
}
Thank you very much Rednoah!

Updated the online artwork.* scripts with that. Set skip/override mode by using the --conflict [skip|override] option.
