  • Changed the code, so that it will process all files and then queue up the ones that it can't find. This way, when it can't find metadata, it will not prompt at the time, but only when the entire process is finished.

Release: 1.3.1
  • Fixed some issues in the DVD Profiler Provider plugin.
  • Fixed some issues in Url Caching
  • Fixed Issue with --offline touching too many files.

Release: 1.3-test
  • Added DVD Profiler Plugin (see properties)
  • Added Cached Urls (all urls that are fetched are automatically cached for 24hrs) (configured in properties)
  • Added --offline option to create empty video files with metadata
  • DVD Folders will now have all of their file timestamps updated when metadata is created.
  • Project is now hosted on google (

This is a test release since, DVD Profiler is largely untested, since I don't use dvd profiler. I wrote it mainly as a proof of concept, to show that other plugins could be added fairly easily. Also cached urls is new. Cached urls will cache any fetched url for 24hrs. This means that once you query imdb and get back a result, then re-running the tool will not hit IMDB again. I added this mainly for testing to reduce the amount of traffic going to IMDB and other providers.

For DVD Profiler, you need to put your profile url in your custom property file.

Release: 1.2
  • Fixed Bug in where dvd properties should go
  • added property so that the dvd thumbnail could go in the video_ts folder (see properties)
  • Genre now uses / separator (or you can write a single genre only if the genre property is set) (see properties)
  • Added support for dvd folders without video_ts subfolder (hope this doesn't have a performance impact)
  • Can now pass properties from the command line using -Dprop=value (see properties)

Release: 1.1
  • Added --forceThumbnail arg to force the download of thumbnails
  • Added DVD Folder support (as long as there is a VIDEO_TS folder)
This is a command line tool, not a sage stv plugin. It can be discussed in this thread.

This tool will scan a given file/directory and create/update the required Sage properties/jpg so that Sage can refresh its metadata with what is in the updated properties.
