[request] Setlist.fm for concerts/festivals

CapricaCaprica Posts: 19Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass
I recently added a whole bunch of concerts/festival sets to my Plex library. I would love it if a metadata agent existed to pull the setlist from setlist.fm & add it to to the summary text.

Eg I have a file "Ellie Goulding - Coachella 2014.mkv" it should match to this http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/ellie-goulding/2014/empire-polo-grounds-indio-ca-4bc39382.html

    Yeah its a shame no one is interested. Still wishing I didn't need to add it all manually.

    There is an API for this site supporting json (easier) and XML so it is doable: https://api.setlist.fm/docs/1.0/index.html

    • unique setlist id like: 4bc39382 assigned by the search() function
    • support poster
    • track list (if movie agent use to put as summary)
    • use location to set tags
    • date

    You have a single video file so you may want a movie agent and a series agent if the separate tacks were split in multiple files.
    You could set the artist as a tv series, then the year as the season for example...
    I would recommend labeling in GitHub the project "Setlist-fm.bundle" and doing a movies+tv series agent possibly.

    Absolute Series Scanner (ASS): Seasons+Absolute mode series scanner managing subdirectories and AniDB type specials,with a logging off all files (skipped on top of root folder, then sorted one line per file with regex used and info, all series sorted alphabetically) and one with the filelist to reproduce the library on my end with dummy files. It also add all files and recognise specials pretty accurately.

    http AniDB Metadata Agent (HAMA): Some good info there, will have to re-write it at some point... Data folders are kinda mandatory... Huge libraries can fetch 10gb in space. If you have no poster but other metadata is showing, create "Plug-in Support/Data/com.plexapp.agents.hama/DataItems" agent folders as indicated in the readme on GitHub

    Impressed by the agent recognition rate? Consider donating few euros through Paypal: Absolute Series Scanner + HTTP AniDB Metadata Agent. (Donators: xnaas, Sven-7, Niegen, Vorador, Fratal, T. Mayville,  A. Estremera, KJKingJ, Blindsay, ...lacking space)
