TMDB Metadata

Post by dukenbat »

Hi,

Wow Filebot is amazing, does more than I could have expected. The scripting possibilities are fantastic. I have been using it via the commandline to replace a clunky perl hack I made years ago. My program got the 'director' field from TMDB, would it be possible to have 'director' be one of the expressions available while matching against the various databases?

Thanks for this amazing program.

The director field doesn't seem to be in the data I get from tmdb. I'll look into this for next release.

Finally got back to this.
You are right, TMDB, doesn't provide a director field. I was getting director from IMDB.
I am using this file structure...

/Movies/Director/Title (year)/...

If I could use {d} as the director name, this would be ideal.
My format would look like this.

/Volumes/Movies/{d}/{n} ({y})

In the case of multiple directors I guess they would all be returned as one long string.

I would then need to massage the director name(s) to put it into Last, First format.

Thanks again, for a great tool.

When I get back I can help you on this. But it definitly won't add a standard binding that depends on scraping IMDb, that's just a hell to maintain.

+1

Not only director, we need all posible metadata for rich directory and filename structure. Maybe a user-script interface is ussefull for people can help update and create new scripts.

I will add bindings to TMBD metadata for next release, that'll cover whatever is available through TMDB-API.

Next release will give you access to TMDB / TVDB metadata via {info} binding, e.g. {info.director}

You can have a look and do some testing with the latest beta:
