1 JustUseTheFileName

To simply add videos to the library as movies without any special info you can install the JustUseTheFileName scraper: http://up.kibje.com/20130711/metadata.justUseFilename.org.zip

2 NFO files

  • Add NFO files for each file. For step-by-steps look at the additional guides below.
  • Here's a basic/bare minimal example of an NFO file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
   <movie>
        <title>Some title</title>
        <originaltitle>Some title just in case - you most likely dont need this either</originaltitle>
        <sorttitle>It will sort by this title if you include it</sorttitle>
        <genre>HomeMovies</genre>
        <id>-1</id>
   </movie>
