2 Introduction

TVmaze is a TV Show scraper developed in Python by Roman V.M.

The TVmaze scraper accesses the following site to scrape your TV Shows, seasons and episodes:

  • TVmaze - for metadata and some artwork


3 Settings

Scraper settings can be adjusted in three locations, each location having a different result. When adjusting the settings be mindful of where:

1. Kodi System Settings ▶ Add-ons ▶ Information Providers ▶ (Select Scraper)
Scrapers are installed with default settings. Adjusting settings in this location sets the new default settings for your scraper. From this point on any source you change to use this scraper will use the new default settings. Existing sources are not changed
If an existing source is already using this scraper, and you would like the new settings to take effect, change the source to use another scraper, save and answer no to updating the library. Then change the scraper back and the new default settings will be loaded for the source. Alternatively, use the next method.
2. Videos ▶ Files ▶ Source ▶ Context Menu ▶ Change Content ▶ Settings
Changing settings at the source will affect that source only.
3. Videos ▶ Files ▶ Source ▶ Movie/TV Show folder ▶ Context Menu ▶ Change Content ▶ Settings
Changing settings on the folder containing a movie or TV show will affect only that movie or TV show.


Note: Changing scraper settings does not change the metadata or artwork already in your library. Only items scraped after the setting changes will be affected.
