TVDB blocked in China

Post by Frazzle » 23 Jun 2019, 08:23

I have been the AMC script for a while now without problems. However, I have recently moved to China which blocks many websites, including for some reaosn TVDB. The TVMaze works fine, and when using the GUI I can easily use the TVMaze for renaming and moving the files.

Can I change the AMC script to lookup TV shows via TVMaze instead of TVDB?

Cheers.

Yes, but you'll have to fork the script and make your own modifications.

Alternatively, you can try to set net.filebot.TheTVDB.url to a TheTVDB mirror domain, such as this one:

Code: Select all

-Dnet.filebot.TheTVDB.url=https://tvdb2.plex.tv/

Thanks - i tried that mirror in my Chrome and it looks to work, so if I can update in the scripts it should hopefully work.

Could you point me on how (or where) to set net.filebot.TheTVDB.url to the mirror as you suggest?

Thanks.

You can use the JAVA_OPTS like in the example here:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3913

Alternatively, newer versions of FileBot allow you to permanently set Java System Properties for FileBot like so:

Code: Select all

filebot -script fn:properties --def net.filebot.TheTVDB.url=https://tvdb2.plex.tv/
