support for XEM?

Post by howdymilsap » 16 Jul 2018, 20:45

Hi,

I am wondering if support for XEM has been considered (to augment tvdb for example). I have run across several shows that have discrepancies between naming/numbering from the scene and what thetvdb lists. These are always fixable in a manual way, but having it automated would be even better.

many thanks.

1.
What is XEM?


2.
Are you using the amc script? The Advanced File-Tuning section will explain a good solution for making things pretty much error-proof for newly aired episodes.

XEM is the cross entity map for tv shows.

http://thexem.de/

Basically, discrepancies in tvdb, anidb and the scene are managed here. The episode mismatches for shows like Mythbusters and SNL have already been re-mapped in XEM. Season 43 of SNL is a great example of the issue, where the scene episode numbering is off by 2 compared to tvdb. This is because of how tvdb handled 2 specials that aired this season.

Fixing this is not that difficult, but i have to manually edit the files and change the filename. if we could use XEM, this wouldn't be necessary as someone has already "fixed" this mismatch in the XEM data. Just for clarity, the mismatch is in the scene numbering and what tvdb thinks that episode is. For example, SNL S43E23 is Tina Fey/Nicki Minaj per the scene numbering. SNL S43E23 does not exist in tvdb, S43E21 is the Tina Fey/Nicki Minaj episode in their database.

Lastly, I am using your AMC script (it is fantastic) and am using the advanced file tuning suggestions. This doesn't remedy this particular situation however.

A few examples of original file names that get matched incorrectly by the amc script would be helpful.

filebot output is not all that useful (in this example) as the file is seemingly properly identified as Saturday Night live S43E21 and filebot using tvdb applies S43E21 metadata.

However, the scene numbering for S43E21 is really the Donald Glover/Childish Gambino episode. the TVDB has this as the Tina Fey/Nicki Minage episode instead.

Here is theTVDB page for this episode https://www.thetvdb.com/series/saturday ... es/6681723
Here is the official NBC page indicating S43E21 is the Donald Glover episode https://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live ... er/3712034
Here is theXEM page showing how it fixes this issue http://thexem.de/xem/show/4294

Finally, here is the output from when I run filebot:

Thanks for the logs. I always need the original file paths so I can add them to my test dataset.

Support for XEM won't make it into the upcoming release, but maybe the next.

+1 for interest in this.
Any update on if we'll see it in a future release?

It's on my TODO list, but I'm not quite sure on how to implement this well in a consistent way that fits into how things currently work. It won't be in 4.8.5 but possibly in the next release, especially if if there's lots of demand for this particular feature.

Great thanks!
I'd note that I don't think you'll have a lot of vocal requests, just because I think most people have no idea it exists.
But it would certainly help a lot of people with their problems with having to manually correct mismatches.
Demands there, people just aren't aware that there's a centralized solution to it.

I usually ask people to include file paths when reporting mismatches, so that should give some indication what kind of files are troublesome and if XEM could be a solution for those.
