Metadata Sources

I am still struggling with meta data issues here :frowning:

Movies
Is movie data fetched from IMDb or themoviedb.com? There are differences, so I’d like to add correct naming (and years!!)

Shows
Is data fetched from thetvdb.com? In what language? English? And if it’s a Dutch TV show (without English metadata)?

Homemovies
How can I force my home movies to use .nfo files?
And what tags do I (and can I) use?

[?xml version=“1.0” encoding=“UTF-8” standalone=“yes” ?]
[movie]
[title]Movietitle[/title]

[/movie]

PS: In my .nfo file I use < and > instead of [ and ], but this forum doesn’t get them! :wink:

We’re currently using TMDb for movies, and TheTVDb for TV shows.

By default, Infuse will search for metadata in the language your Apple TV is set to, though you can override this by changing the Metadata Language setting from Auto to something else.

A sample metadata file is attached, though you’ll need to change the extension to .nfo or .xml (Infuse supports both).

Thanks, I will try it.
But I understand there isn’t a fall back language for search. My Apple TV is in English, I want to search in English but I do have the occasional Dutch show without English descriptions on TVDB.com

What about a solution for AmRenzo’s last problem?

Homemovies
How can I force my home movies to use .nfo files?
And what tags do I (and can I) use?

[?xml version=“1.0” encoding=“UTF-8” standalone=“yes” ?]
[movie]
[title]Movietitle[/title]

[/movie]

All of my home videos are placed in “other.” I would like them to be in their own category like the TV shows are. In previous versions of Infuse, I just made a separate folder and my tagged home videos would show up with my metadata using MetaZ. This seems to be impossible in Firecore’s latest version of Infuse
