    tinyMediaManager
    is a media management tool written in Java/Swing. It is written to provide metadata and artwork for XBMC and MediaPortal. Originally written to support XBMC (forum link to the XBMC thread) we are actively working with some MediaPortal users (ysMP, joostzilla, megahorst and Infinite.Loop) to add support for MediaPortal.

    Bug reporting and Feature requests
    please report bugs and feature requests at GitHub whenever its possible (it gives a better overview over bugs than a forum).
    I will also check this thread for bugs and enter the bug report myself if someone has no Google account

    Downloads
    tinyMediaManager is available at GitHub

    Native starters should work on every OS.
    The first time you start tinyMediaManager it will create some files and directories in the running directory (except Mac version - all files will be created inside the App)

    Problems?
    tinyMediaManager does not show correct movie information or is acting weird: try to delete tmm.odb (via the "debug menu - initialize database" and/or config.xml! Sometimes a change in the sourcecode can create an inconsistency between the database/config and tinyMediaManager

    Usage
    The first time you start, you will have to add an existing directory containing the movies (the structure has to be "one movie per directory"). For example:
    • movies
      • Aladdin
        • Aladdin.mkv
      • A-Team
        • movie.avi

    After you added a directory containing movies, you can update the datasources in the "movie panel". Once the movies are imported, you can either search for it in TMDB/IMDB/OFDB (magnifying glass icon) or change it manually (pencil image);
    When changing a movie, you can also choose other images (just click the image you want to change). All available images for this movie will be downloaded from TMDB/Fanart.tv, as soon as there is a IMDB id or TMDB id is present.
    Whenever you scrape or change a movie, the NFO file next to the movie will the modified; the poster and the fanart will also be modified, if they have been found.



    If there are any questions, feel free to ask!

    Well, that looks great!
    And I got a question:
    What about writing NFO-Files for tv-shows in mediaportal format?

    If anybody would like to test:

    I have tested together with Manuel and have used this MePo settings:
    uploadfromtaptalk1380118529995.jpg

    Especially the sorting order is nice. When using this you will have all movies belonging to a boxset/series (Harry Potter, James Bond, ...) together one by one in there right order in the database. (The set/series is scraped directly out of tmdb).

    More than one fanart is still under development if I'm not wrong. But within my testversion ist seems to work fine. Will try to finalise my tests within the next days.

    At the moment TV shows only read/write XBMC compatible NFOs (and there are still no extra scraper in there - just a lack of time here :p). Our interface is clean enough to switch to an other export/import format - I only need some sort of documentation :)


    some time ago I switched the certification notation to an other one. It looks like there is (like in XBMC) no defined notation for it; megahorst did some research in MP and this is the way we changed it. Here you can see the forum thread of the discussion


    If I get some input here (and possibly testers :p), I am sure we can create a perfect support for MP in tinyMediaManager. I just need some testers, because I can't test it in MP (Linux user and no windows machine at home :p)

    Cheers,
    Manuel

    I uninstalled Java some time back, with all its exploits, and I'm not currently running any Java apps.

    What is the current state of affairs for Java? What should be done to protect the system?

    well, no Java == no TMM :)

    Java (as framework) has as many flaws as every other tool/os/framework you use (for sure!)
    It's always a matter of trust, to use software from others - or not.
    But: Java itself isn't (that) bad.
    Only malicious code on your system might be able to do bad things.

    When it comes to TMM, the source is available. Feel free to check it.
    Same for Java framework itself.
    But if you have Java activated in your browser, then you'll be doomed pretty fast ;)

    Any other TMM specific question i might help you with?


    Hi all, btw :)
