Metadata agents for exported XBMC library

    Would someone be able to look at the nfo files that are being generated for me, and see where PMS is choking? I have a feeling there's something off format wise. Also what would happen if I removed all of the other plugins for pulling metadata and only left the xbmc agent. Catastrophic failure or great success?

    I tried using the script and everything runs great except for artwork for season folders still. I tried psycik's script as well but no luck with that either. Any suggestions?


    I think I'd only set folder.jpg to be accepted as a season thumbnail

    Guys, I must be being a real noob but After placing the zip folders into the plugin directory where do I go to select the metadata agent. I have tried Media Manger (agents) but it doesnt show!

    Hi Guillaume,

    After importing the nfo files for my movies in PMS, the field "Originally Available" is set to 01.01.70 (european date) for all my movies. Due to this I cannot use the Recently Release filter in Plex clients.

    If I look at my nfo files generated by XBMC Eden, I don't see the <releasedate> field. This is weird.

    Do you have the same issue ?

    If it is the case, I propose to set the release date to 1st January of the year of the movie. Do you think it's possible ?

    Also, I see that there is a field <set> in the nfo files which give us if it is a collection (example : <set>Saga Transformers</set>). It could make sense to add this one too in PMS, what do you think ?

    Also, I see that there is a field <set> in the nfo files which give us if it is a collection (example : <set>Saga Transformers</set>). It could make sense to add this one too in PMS, what do you think ?

    In what Plex field would you think this could be imported ?
    See the Movie class here: http://dev.plexapp.com/docs/agents/models.html

    Fixing the release date to the year is indeed a good idea. Should be able to work on this later tonight.

    In the field collections

    This is less important but you could also add the writers.

    XBMC nfo field = <credits>
    Plex field = writers

    &lt;credits&gt;Roberto Orci&lt;/credits&gt;
        &lt;credits&gt;Alex Kurtzman&lt;/credits&gt;
        &lt;credits&gt;John Rogers&lt;/credits&gt;
    



    I don't know if it is possible but you could also try to add the posters and fanart http links. Then in Plex Media Manager, the user will be able to change the posters and background art.

    XBMC nfo field for posters links =
    &lt;thumb preview="http://
    

    Plex field = posters

    XBMC nfo field for fan art links =
    &lt;fanart&gt;
            &lt;thumb preview="http://
    

    Plex field = art

    Guys, I must be being a real noob but After placing the zip folders into the plugin directory where do I go to select the metadata agent. I have tried Media Manger (agents) but it doesnt show!


    Any suggestions?
  • gboudreaugboudreau Members, Plex Pass Posts: 85 Plex Pass

    Any suggestions?

    Did you put the .bundle files like this:

    Image%202012.04.14%206:40:12%20.png


    If so, restart PMS, and the agents will appear in the list of available primary metadata agents when you create or edit a section, using the web or Mac UI:

    Image%202012.04.14%206:56:06%20.png or Image%202012.04.14%207:02:42%20.png

    Thanks for the detailed reply, I now have the xmbc metadata agent showing in the web config, issue now is that the button is greyed out and won't let me select it!

    You don't need to select it, it will work even if it is greyed out. But if you want to combine this metadata agent with others, you will have to select it.

    To do so, download this file and unzip it : [attachment=10303:com.plexapp.agents.xbmcnfo.zip]

    Copy the folder in /library/application support/plex media server/Plug-in support/metadata combination/

    It will look like this : [attachment=10304:Screenshot.jpg]

    Then restart PMS

    Salut Guillaume


    Release date from year, set/collections & credits/writers added.


    Perfect, thank you !


    Added remote (URLs) posters & fanarts.


    With this change there is a good news and a bad news. First, have a look at the screenshots.

    Before : [attachment=10305:Capture d’écran 2012-04-15 à 15.16.28.jpg]

    After : [attachment=10306:Capture d’écran 2012-04-15 à 15.09.37.jpg]

    For the good news, I can see that the remote URLs for posters & fanarts are present in PMS but the images are not processed (I mean I have to select each Plex logo to display the image).

    For the bad news, your metadata agent doesn't load the poster.tbn and fanart.jpg by default. So I see a poster and fanart in MediaManager but not the good ones. Probably one of the remote URLs.

    I guess that when the metadata agent added the remote URLs for poster and fanart, it deleted the original images.

    The challenge here will be to add the poster.tbn (as the default image) and the remote URLs at the same time. Same for fanart.jpg.

    If it is not possible, the best is to reverse this change and just have poster.tbn and fanart.jpg without the remote URLs.

    Thank you for you help Guillaume !

    Just found a workaround...

    If I add "Local Media Assets (Movies)" as first metadata agent :

    [attachment=10307:Capture d’écran 2012-04-15 à 15.38.27.jpg]

    I see the correct poster & fanart by default with remote URLs included (but still without a preview image loaded by MediaManager) :

    poster : [attachment=10309:Capture d’écran 2012-04-15 à 15.36.35.jpg]

    fanart : [attachment=10308:Capture d’écran 2012-04-15 à 15.36.57.jpg]

    How do you do that?

    Install the metadata agent and then add the folder com.plexapp.agents.xbmcnfo (see post #35). Restart PMS and then you will just have to activate "Local Media Assets (Movies)" as first metadata agent.

    I've done as you describe, but I only get the following:

    Difficult to help you because it seems that you don't use the same OS (I use OSX).

    First, you can try to replace the "com.plexapp.agents.xbmcnfo" folder by this one : [attachment=10312:com.plexapp.agents.xbmcnfo (with Local Media).zip]

    If you don't see "Local Media Assets (Movies)", you can then install this metadata agent to replace the last one : https://github.com/gboudreau/XBMC-Movies-Metadata-Agent-for-Plex/zipball/af44675277

    It has all the last changes done by Guillaume except the remote URLs for posters and fanart. We can consider it as the last working build.

    This is fine. This is what appears in the web UI for me too. The real UI (in OS X at least) shows more, but what you have is fine.
