Metadata agents for exported XBMC library
If you already have metadata in XBMC, and would like to use that in Plex.
I took the code posted by Harley Hooligan, and changed it to work with my files.
In XBMC, go in Settings > Videos > Library > Export Video Library. Choose Separate files & Export Thumbnails and fanart, and optionally overwrite existing files.
This will create .nfo & .jpg files for your TV Shows and Movies, in the appropriate directories.
The following Plex Plug-ins will then import those into your Plex library.
To use them in Plex, first install them: unzip both files, rename them to end with .bundle, and move both .bundle packages into ~/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Plug-ins/
Then, create a new section (or edit an existing one), and choose "XBMC .nfo importer" as the Primary metadata agent.
Note: For TV Shows sections, the folder(s) you choose in your section settings should be a folder that contains TV shows folders. i.e. adding a folder that contains media files will NOT work!
What it will import:
- Title, summary, tagline, rating, year, director, actors, genre, etc. from .nfo files.
- Artwork files: posters, banners & fanarts.
