TViXIE-2-M8R
« on: October 29, 2011, 06:19:57 am »
Hi

I've created a small app that will read through a folder and sub folders, and create the XML files used by the new Mede8er to display movie information.

Usage:
Open the application, select your root movie folder, and click OK.

The files will be named according to the folder name. For example:
M:\Movies\Animated\A Bug's Life\MovieInfo.tvixie --> M:\Movies\Animated\A Bug's Life\A Bug's Life.xml


Please note that it does not use all the information from the recently released TViXIE 1.3.3, but it won't crash if it reads that file.

The following information is used from the TViXIE file:
  • Title
  • Year
  • Rating (I use t.Rating * 10)
  • Plot
  • Outline = Plot
  • Directors
  • Countries
  • Runtime (Formatted from minutes to hh:mm)
  • Genres
  • Actors

I hope this helps the TViXIE users among us enjoy the same benefits as the YAMJ users  ;D

PS. I am willing to share the source code if anyone wants to tinker ;)

[UPDATE 2012/02/13]
I've rewritten the program in Java which means that it can now run on Mac as well.
2M8R.zip is the Java version (runs on all platforms)
TViXIE2M8RSetup.zip is the Windows only version

Changes:
1. Now uses the Title of the movie to create the XML file
2. Can convert ACRyan, Tomy, TViXIE and YAMJ files.


[UPDATE 2012/08/04]
2M8R_Java.zip is the Java version (runs on all platforms)
2M8R_.Net.zip is the Windows only version

Changes:
1. The output files of both versions are now (mostly) identical
2. Populated some additional fields for the Java version (Director, Country, Outline)
3. Fixed a bug in the Java program with permissions to folders created by Windows

[UPDATE 2012/09/02]
Changes:
1. Fixed a bug in the .Net version where the Rating would be calculated incorrectly (TViXIE always uses '.' as the decimal separator rather than the system default)

[UPDATE 2012/11/06]
Changes:
1. Both versions changed to support Sick Break's *.nfo files
2. Rewritten the Java version to improve the interface

[UPDATE 2012/11/07]
Changes:
1. Just a mention that the NFO files supported is TVRenamer (sorry for the miscommunication)
2. .Net version changes
2.1 "Outline" is renamed to "episodedetails" for displaying the plot in series view
2.2 The Year is now populated
2.3 The error message popping up when clicking the OK button twice is now fixed

[UPDATE 2012/11/24]
Changes:
1. New option on the main screen where you can specify a default Genre if no Genres were found

Please let me know if any bugs found.

Yes, good to see you got it working. Now other Tvix users have a way to migrate over to a Med and bring their movie data files with them.

Great contribution.  :)
 
This will really help new users that are not that techy to get YamJ running properly.
TviXie in combination with this tool really helps.

Cheers,

Thanks for putting in the time in producing this...but I can't seem to get it to work... ::)

I had a 500X and now have a 400X2...I have a 2tb HDD connected to it by USB and have run all the folders through TVixie and all worked great.  I ran all your folders through your SW, scanned them on my X2 and they are in the movies library - but sans any covers or info sheets... ???  Though they are there on my 500X still - I do however get the movie information your SW adds - just no covers...

Hi Basil

My SW does not download covers or movie info. It simply converts the tvixie file to xml that the mede8er can use.
I'm not near a pc at the moment, but I will check again when I am close to one. Can you list the files in one of the folders that do not show the info on Mede8er?

Yeah I understand that mate...as I understand it, it adds an .xml file to a folder that has already been scanned by tvixie...which all of mine have...there are 2 jpegs in each folder ((about & folder), the mkv file itself, 3 tvixie files(fanart, frontcover and movieinfo) plus 2 .xml files (film name and view)

Many Thanks

Not that it should make a difference, but are you browsing though Favourites or Movie Library?

Sorry for the late reply - movie library.  I have since used Thumbgen - and while it's not a patch on tvixie, it does show up the covers...though it looks a bit "amateurish" if I'm honest...the covers are all different sizes, all at different angles and not all the same kind...would really like to get this working if possible as I'm sure it would look more polished...

Can you send me a zipped copy of a few folders (without the movies of course) so I can have a look?
