Exporting recordings to Plex/Emby/etc....

Hi. I am trying to remember how I used to to do this.

What I am trying to do is export SageTV recordings to Plex/EMBY etc... by generating symlinks from the folder import format that these systems all want (e.g. /Recordings/Grey's Anatomy/Season 1/Episodename-S1E1)

There used to be a utility that did this by looking up BMT data for XBMC, and I remember using this to make copies or linked directories, but I can't seem to find it for some reason.

What's the best way of trying to do this today?

thanks,
mike

Yes, I just confirmed that it won't pull season and episode data if the filename doesn't include it. I have a few thousands shows that were recorded before that was an option, at least before I knew it was an option.

thx

MCEBUDDY can read SageTV xml files to get the metadata ... example of how I rename my Sage Files ...TVShows >>> Boston Legal (2004) - S03E03 - Desperately Seeking Shirley -70757-0.ts ..... movies >>> Trolls (2016) -70239-0.ts

You need to set this property to create an XML file.

load_at_startup_runnable_classes=net.sf.sageplugins.sagexmlinfo.RecordingXmlGenerator

Ex XML file

Oh that is cool. I never knew that feature existed.

So I set this variable in the sage.properties files, and then at restart sage will make an xml file for every recording?

Thx
