pyXBMCscrape – NFO and art fetcher for XBMC

I couldn’t find a simple script to automatically pull metadata IMDB and download art from TMDB for XBMC, so I wrote my own. Even though XBMC has built-in scraping, I prefer the additional control of a semi-interactive scraper for batch processing or when the scraper scrapes the wrong movie.

Repository: http://github.com/richardpeng/pyXBMCscrape

Main Features:

  • Detects potential mismatches when it searches and prompts for the correct IMDB/TMDB ID
  • Run in interactive mode to choose art from a list of URLs
  • Force the script to use a specific IMDB/TMDB ID for the scrape
  • Will not overwrite existing nfo and art files by default
  • Download extra fanart
  • Recursively process files and folders
