- HI Billy.
1stly great app...Thank you.
2ndly I wondered if it was something I'm doing but:
1. I seem to be left with movies Called CD1 or CD2 also many called Sample.
At the moment I have 5 entires for CD1 all of which are pointing to the same dir and then only 1 pointing to the CD2 folder?
2. It doesn't seem to scrape all my movies. For instance, I have Apocolypto in my folder but it isn't in my list in MC...
....ahah! Just figured it out...MC isn't picking up on folders that have the avi in a multiple rar format. Isn't this what the 'use folder names for IMDB searches' option is a workaround for?
How would you recommend I resolve these quirks of my system?
Thank you again.
I believe the problem is that its searching for the closest folder match to the files beneath to create the nfo file, and only figuring one movie per folder by default
an option maybe to combine all your rars into the one folder - however depending on your setup (if you are using 'scene' rars) you may end up with files that are not in the XBMC compatible stacking format. see XBMC Wiki
Ive gone to the lengths of keeping the folder of each movie as per the downloaded folder and extracting each avi and naming it according to what IMDB references the movie to.
or in the case of multi-part movies
with the tbn and nfo file in this case
I believe XBMC can also pickup Movie (1999).tbn - but leaving part1 seems to be the default behavior of Media Companion
After posting, read up more on the stacking on XBMC Wiki - if you were to make your own regexp and put all your files into one folder (ie; not Movie\CD1 just Movie\*.rar) then you would have correct operations inside of Media Companion and proper stacking in XBMC also.
The trick is to check whats inside your rar files as XBMC will interpret these as plain .avi's if you have this option enabled in the filesystem options.
