I have not been able to get a great deal done this week due to other things, but I have managed to put together this command line utility, hopefully it will be useful for some of you.

The app needs to be run from your main Media Companion folder since it needs some of the same libraries to function.

Useage
-m (search for new movies)
-e (search for new episodes)
-p (set the profile to use)
-h (create a html list)

mc_com.exe [-m] [-e] [-p "ProfileName"] [-h "templatename" "outputpath"]

examples:
mc_com.exe -m
Will search for and scrape new movies - default profile

mc_com.exe -e
Will search for and scrape new episodes - default profile

mc_com.exe -m -p "my movies"
Will search for and scrape new movies using the "my movies" profile (The quotes (") are not needed unless their is a space in the profile name)

mc_com.exe -m -h "basic movie template" "c:\movielist\list.html"
Will search for new movies and then output a list using the named template to the named path, again, the template and path only need quotes if their are spaces in the name or path.

Download MC command line v0.1

Just drop the file into your MC directory and use as above, future builds of MC will have this file included.

Excellent Billy!

I've some information that may be of help to other uses regarding the use of batch files with mc_com.exe.

The batch file below does the following things...
1. redirects the screen output to a log file (so it can be kept or viewed at a later date)
2. shows the log file upon mc_com finishing
3. adds the date & time that mc_com was initiated to the log file.

Code:
echo %date% > com_log.txt
echo %time% >> com_log.txt
mc_com.exe -m -e >> com_log.txt
notepad com_log.txt


Note that on each run of the batch file it erases the old log file & starts again so the previous log history is lost. If you do not want that behavior, change the '>' in the first line to a double i.e. '>>' (this means append to the txt file)

This will also mean that the latest entry to the log file will be at the end of it!

Cheers

The command line prog needs access to the same 'moviecache.xml' file as media companion, for some reason yours is missing. Using the rebuild option within the main MC program will create the file.

If it is the case that you are using the command line program to add movies before MC has created the file then this would also raise the same problem, tbh I never considered this posibility when I wrote it, I'll add some checks and error handling for the next build.
